Site Entry Page (4 posts)

    Is it possible to have an "entry" page for a site that is built in WordPress? For example, the user goes to http://www.mysite.com and lands on a page that doesn't have dynamic content, just an image and some text (this is for a spa, and they like their current entry page). Is there a way to set this up when the rest of the site is WordPress?

    Thanks in advance!

    yes, just do it! put a link to the WP homepage URL on the entry page and you are all set.

    Oh sorry, I forgot one little detail...

    They would like their homepage to still be in the root directory, and therefore be http://www.mysite.com. How do I get the entry and the home page to still both be http://www.mysite.com? Their current site does this.

    It may be unrelated to WordPress completely...sorry about that!

    Thanks!

    generally the apache webserver is configured to start up index.htm and/or index.html before index.php

    since WP starts with index.php, if your hosting account is configured with the default settings it will just work if the startup page ends in htm or html

    If not you can add a line to the .htaccess file in your webroot folder. if there is no .htaccess file then create one.
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php
