    I was wondering how could I make a wordpress platform website look like a regular HTML site? I do not want it to look like a blog? Would it be better to make a HTML website?

    It's my understanding you can make a wordpress site look anyway you desire. Only use a CMS (content management system) if you need it, otherwise KISS (keep it simple stu#id) and use a static html site. To customize a WP site try http://pagelines.com

    You could always install wordpress into a subfolder, like site.com/blog.

    You can create your own theme of your choice. Then you can get the look of your site and how you wanted it. But to create themes you need to have knowledge about programming language.

    Search for a theme from the wordpress backend called 'boilerplate' and it gives you a completely stripped down theme and lets you theme it however you want. It's fast too

    I have had to do this a couple of times, you can "eliminate" the blog features, use static pages and SEO features to rewrite the URL, so that it looks like a simple html-page etc. These methods do not however help you much with the source code itself. You can build nice sites with WP that have nothing to do with blogs, all it takes is a bit of editing.
