    So on the home page, the blog posts are laid out normally (from newest to oldest). I would like to have a page that enables the visitors to view the posts in chronological order too (from oldest to newest). It would be like a "First time? Start here!" page.

    Can this be done? Again, not on the main blog home page, but on a different page.

    Let me know :)

    You may find a plugin to do it, otherwise maybe create a page and then use the archive shortcodes which can be found on the wordpress support site

    You could try something like this:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-order-category/

    Make a specific category, assign all your posts to that category, and order them using this plugin.

    Then, simply link to that category, and I'm guessing the posts will show in the order you specified.

    Or you can make your own template, apply it to a particular page, and set the order like that.
