Wordpress static index page question

Anyone knows how to have a static index page on domain.com/index.php with Wordpress theme when your blog is installed on domain.com/blog/

For example on this site the blog index is still dynamic at http://www.marketingforsuccess.com/blog/ but the index page http://www.marketingforsuccess.com/ is static with the Wordpress theme with different sidebar.

You mean you want a page to be the same when you go to /blog ?
You can create an individual page then go to reading settings and select which page you want to be static.

I think I am answering your question right :wink:

No. If you see the site, the homepage has a wordpress design with a different sidebar. You can see Wordpress code in the index source.

But the blog is installed in /blog/ and has it’s dynamic homepage.

I want to find out how to create that Wordpress static page in the homepage.

Anyone know how to do it?

I want to install Wordpress into “blog” folder. domain.com/blog/

Currently, I am showing my blog on domain.com/index.php using this as the index.php

define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, true);

But my domain.com/index.php and domain.com/blog are showing the same content.

I want a static page on domain.com/index.php with the same wordpress theme and no changes to domain.com/blog showing the latest posts.

I came across this method at http://tutorialblog.org/turn-your-wordpress-blog-into-a-business-website/

Basically, the method is installing Wordpress at root, which I don’t want to, and using Permalinks to set the blog url.

Anyone know if what I am trying to do is possible?

I know a simple way is just to create a html page and use it as the index.php but I am trying to find out if I can do it in Wordpress.

that is a weird question but if anyone knows the answer to it I would love to find out as well

This is probably the easiest way to get what you are after.


I am already doing that, it’s a different issue. Read my post above. Thanks.

Good Luck then. Thanks. :slight_smile:
