    I am trying to create a splash page for my blog. It’s pretty simple. I have the Intergalactic theme and would like to use it, I would just like to have a sort of dark page with a button you click to enter the site! Doesn’t sound hard but I am a complete novice when it comes to CSS and coding and it would appear that’s the only way I’m going to get the splash page the way I want it. Any advice is helpful, but keep in mind I’m a total beginner ;)

    The blog I need help with is rosesreids.com.

    Intergalactic might be a bit of a challenge to do this way. You would need to create, publish and set a Static Front Page for your site. You would then add a button to the body of that page and then we would likely have to use some CSS to hide some elements on that page.

    One thing that I’ll mention is that home pages for sites should really have at least a bit of content on it for the search engines. If they don’t find any content, other than a button, they may not rank that page well in their search indexes. I would suggest at least a short introductory paragraph for them.

    The button we can do with HTML and some styling directly in the body of the page and then use CSS to hide other elements. If you get your static front page set up, we can go from there.

    Wow, well thank you! I think I will take your advise and just keep a home page up with content so search engines can find it. Thank you for your advise.
