I've created a basic index.html page I'd like to have as a front page before entering into my WordPress website. I am not talking about creating a static front page inside of admin. I do not want that. I've tried manipulating the htaccess, with success, but any link I've created on the index.html page keeps looping back into the index.html page and not into index.php or the main WordPress site.
Here is my htaccess:
# BEGIN WordPress
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
# END WordPress
Is there anyone who can help? Thank you!
