Static home with separate blog page
As you may know, I use a WordPress site for my website, as it is free & open source software, easy to configure and customize, with a great community for support.
I am in the process of updating my site, so it has the look and feel of a regular custom website, rather than a WordPress blog, plus is more professional in it appearance.
The most significant and recent change is that I have swapped the default homepage article feed, to a static page, and moved the article feed to a “Blog” page. This was relatively easy, by following some simple instructions provided in the work press support wiki http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page. I also installed and activated the “Exclude Pages” plugin allowing me to easily resolve the duplicate “Home” menu item issue. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/exclude-pages/
All is left to do is to create some interesting and informative content…
