I am using wordpress as a CMS to create a user friendly site that non techies can easily change as they need to.
Most of the site is going to be made as WordPress "Pages" which will reside outside of the blog. There is one directory that will be an actual blog.
Currently, the "Pages" reside under the blog in the directory structure:
Basically, I want everything to appear as though it is in the root directory, and I want the home page to look as a static page not as a 'rolling' blog.
All of this needs to be edited using the wordpress admin panel. The people who will be editing this in the future basically barely know how to use a mouse, so I don't want to confuse them with broken admin links.
