I'm using wordpress as a site for a 40-year reunion of my college group. I would like to use a static home page that comes up when anyone logs in, with details of the reunion, then (as posts) a blurb from each class member, with photos. I'll be receiving the info from them and making the posts, so only one contributor. I'd like to be able to show a menu on the home page with everyone's names so people can just click through to read about whoever they like.
Can anyone recommend a suitable theme to use for this? I've done a few wordpress blogs for my travel, so I have a bit of experience, but not too technical. I don't mind paying a modest amount for a customisable theme (but don't want to pay then find it doesn't work for me). If anyone can direct me to an existing blog along these lines that would also be useful. Thanks.
The blog I need help with is kgtcreunion2014.wordpress.com.
