want welcome page different from theme

  • Hi,

    I want to create a welcome page to my WP theme that does not have any elements from the theme itself. Basically, I want the welcome page to have three full-page images that rotate from one to the next with a link to the actual WP theme-based website. My questions are as follows:

    1) Is this possible within a theme’s template (I am using Sliding Door 2.6.1)
    2) Would I have to create a separate index page using a webpage creator like Dreamweaver & Flash to create this page?

  • Is there a way of creating a new .php file that removes the header and only has a single column that can house an image to fill the entire space that rotates to a series of images?

    You should be able to create a home.php template and code it however you please.

    If you’re site normally shows blog posts on the home page, you could also create a new page for the landing page, create a custom page Template, and use Settings->Reading, and set that new page for front page, and another new page for blog posts.

    See Template Hierarchy.

    I would strongly recommend that you don’t use a home.php template file as this can cause a lot of confusion on some servers/sites. If your site uses a static front page, create a front-page.php file. Otherwise, amend your theme’s index.php template file.

    Hi,
    I have the same problem like chesterrhoder. I was looking for help, I mean how to make it, but so far none of your answer is helpful to me.
    Is there someone who can tell me exactly how to do it?

    Thx

    @maguey: As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic. Your problem – despite any similarity in symptoms – is likely to be completely different.
