Static front page

  1. Hello,

    I want to create a static paragraph on my home page, followed by the daily posts beneath it - similar to this website: http://ubargrotto.com

    Can you please instruct me on how to do that?

    Thanks so very much!

    -Joey

    The blog I need help with is cinemagrotto.com.

  2. There's not a static front page. There's a sticky post at the top of the page > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts

  3. Thanks timethief.

    I want to apply this method to every menu on my blog - a picture being the first blog post in a particular menu. Is this possible?

    Thanks again!

  4. No it's not possible as there is only one dynamic page for posts in any blog.

    Pages and posts are different. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ Pages are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and they do not automatically update. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

    You cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages created by the software when you publish posts into the custom menu.

    Here’s a link to a custom menu walk-through > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

    There are many common errors, misunderstanding and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

  5. Thanks Timethief.

    I only ask because for the website I am using as an example (ubargrotto.com), each menu has 1 post, all without the following verbiage:

    "Posted by cinemagrotto on November 27, 2012Edit This
    Posted in: Grotto Notes. Leave a Comment"

    If I can't apply the sticky post method to the post in a menu, how do I post without the verbiage?

    Thanks again!
