My WordPress is purposely installed on my root folder on my server, but I want wordpress to show up as a static "welcome" page when the site is first loaded.
I know how to do that in the Administrative panel, but then, how do you setup a link in the sidebar that changes it back to blog post view?
because I want users to be able to see the welcome screen,
but I also want them to be able to click on a link that takes
them to the most recient posts, does that make any sense?
I also wanted to put a picture gallery on my site of some sort,
that supports multiple albums of posts. How do I do that and
integrate it into the WP site? I did this on purpose
because I wanted a "single sign-on" for my entire site.
