[Resolved] show a normal html page first, with link to blog

  • Hi, as a temporary thing, I’d like to show people a normal html page if they browse to my domain which normally shows them wordpress straight away. Now, I’ve seen plugins who kind of do this, but I don’t want to start up wordpress until the visitor really clicked a link in the html page first.

    Thing is, a big company started a new product with the same name as my blog and if people are looking for his product, I prefer to send them straight to him without stressing my server.

    I tried with making a index.html which did get shown before the index.php, but a link in it to index.php then didn’t work.

    I think that’s to do with the .htaccess file:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    but don’t know how to arrange it so that it does what I want.

    If in a while that traffic peak is gone, I want to just delete the index.html and everything should be back to normal.

    Anyone an idea?

    Thanks!
