I'm brand new to WP and happy to have found this GREAT theme and online support. I have several questions but will post each with unique subject line in what I hope will be the correct areas. I have two related questions that may not quite belong here. I'd like to make a static page my homepage and I'm not seeing how to do that. AND... I've renamed the "home" page to "blog" and added it to the header menu. But I can't seem to find a way to make the sidebar version of the same menu display that link.

Evolving page is at http://www.bonnietarses.com/blog.


Thanks for your help.
Sheila

Thanks...that was SIMPLE!

Now...is there any way to include the "blog" link in the "pages" list in the sidebar?

Thanks so much.

it should display automatically. you create a page and then point to it as the blog page at wordpress dashboard->settings->reading


Are you not seeing ita?

I guess as a newbie I was thinking in a different paradigm! Up to now I've designed static sites. I have made several static pages. They are listed across the top and include the "home" page which I've renamed "blog". Then I've also included the static "pages" as a list in the left sidebar. I wanted a Home button there that would take you to the Current blog posting. But I guess having all the categories and archives in the sidebar may be sufficient. They are indeed displaying. And I haven't made a static homepage yet, but if I do then it would display there.

So much to learn to develop in WP.
Thanks for being so responsive and helpful.
