    Hi there,

    I want to create static main page to my site with custom gallery of my works. Is it possible to do gallery customization via css or do I have to buy some kind gallery-plug in?

    I also want to clean upcoming main page from reply field, tags and widgets.

    This is more and less what I'm looking for:

    By default the front page of your blog displays all published posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. That is for the convenience of your returning visitors, who come to read your latest post, and who are not likely to be happy with being compelled to click through the same static page with the same blah, blah, blah on it every time they visit the blog looking for the latest post.

    However, if you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page called for example “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts. To do that create two pages first http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

    After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    You can create a gallery on any post or page - no upgrade required.

  3. Also note that you can go to the themes showcase and locate portfolio themes there
    http://en.wordpress.com/themes/filter/portfolio/
    Then you can use the detailed theme descriptions provided for each one and also use the relevant support docs for setting one up.

    Thanks for your answer Thistimethisspace. I'll get into these links and try to make my way.

    You can remove the grey background for selected top-level menu items by adding this custom CSS:

    #nav li.current_page_item > a, #nav li.current-menu-ancestor > a, #nav li.current-menu-item > a, #nav li.current-menu-parent > a, div.menu ul li.current_page_item > a, div.menu ul li.current-menu-ancestor > a, div.menu ul li.current-menu-item > a, div.menu ul li.current-menu-parent > a {
        background-color: transparent;
    }
  6. It would great if the selected link/page is highlighted whit stronger color.

    You can do that by adding this line just inside the closing bracket in the CSS I just gave you above:

    color: #bb00bb;

    Change the colour code to whatever you like.
