Using the Graphene Theme as more of a Website Design rather than a Blog

    Hello Graphene World.

    In need of some advice. Recently created website using this excellent theme http://www.integratedselfprotection.com. The design of the site was more geared towards blogging hence the reason the blog was on the front page.

    I have been approached by a friend to design them a site, however they want more of a traditional feel with a standard homepage and then a blog on a news page. Is this possible in Graphene Theme, I have thought about another theme, however it was so good last time round I want to stay with this theme.

    Thanks

    Use a static front page.

    Thanks John,

    And we are there 🙂

    I now have a static home page and a news page for blogging. Thanks mate.

    I notice in the Graphene Website, some key Pages within the navigation bar (Home, Features, Layout & Formatting) are also shown under the main content “Welcome to Graphene theme demo site”, with four square boxes with graphic and read more”.

    Is it possible you could point me in the right direction of some reading for me to learn to create, have searched forum but dont actually have an idea what to search for.

    Thanks.

    Those are “Homepage Panes”. I forget exactly where those settings are; somewhere in Graphene options.
