    Does anyone know how to set up a wordpress blog to have individual landing pages? I don't care if the address looks like "mydomain*com/landingpage". As long as I can make the page itself look to the user like a stand-alone page..
    Any ideas? Please let me know....

    Its quite easy really, you just create a custom category template, now if your permalink structure is something like domain.com/category/post, then you will need to customise the category page a bit more and then just link straight to that so you would link to domain.com/category/ which would be your landing page, if your permalink structure is domain.com/post then you can make it look better and it will be easier to customise.

    For more info on category templates check out these links:

    Wow. Awesome man. I should have my LP set up in no time. Thank you!
    BTW. This works for multiple LPs on a single blog/site, right?
