I would like to know how to create a landing page for my WordPress blog. I've searched for information about how to do this on WordPress and using Google. No results on WordPress. However, on Google, I've found various sites that explain this, although not in enough detail to help me create a landing page.
In addition, most of these sites say that when I create the page I can select "Landing Page" from the drop-down template menu, however, there is no option for "Landing Page" in the drop-down menu.
Can you please explain how I can create a landing page, with a different header/photo at the top of the page, for my blog?
