I am the administrator of a new blog for our bicycle group. I chose a blog format over a typical web site because a blog is very easy to maintain. I add, update, or remove information from the site almost daily. The site uses the Contempt theme.
However, unlike most blogs the main "home" page has a static "Welcome" post with general information about the group that never (or, rarely) changes. It's the only post on the site and I chose to stick it to the main page, which is the main (and only) page that comes standard with this theme.
I'd like to make that page ONLY a page, like all the others, so that the information on the main page is not a post and therefore doesn't include the date. The only reason I don't like the date on the page is because I need to change it frequently to keep the page (and site) looking current for viewers.
Is there a workaround for this? Why can't the default main page be maintained as a page rather than a post? Is there a way to convert it to a page?
I'd appreciate any help and suggestions.
