The reason I ask is because I'm addicted to speed and lowering the time it takes to load. Right now, there is nothing on the home page that really uses any WordPress functionality. No widgets or 'recent posts' or anything. It's basically a landing page with a slider, content, footer, links to log in, register, and share. The WordPress theme also offers an alternate straight HTML version (I'd have to buy again) as well which makes me wonder. I do plan on adding the blog page soon, and I am running things like All-in-One SEO and Google Sitemaps and the basic good stuff... So I don't want to lose all that functionality, but I'm wondering if I should instead have the front page HTML, and the blog on xxx.com/blog be WordPress. Would that be better? Would that cause any issues or problems or difficulty having them 'disconnected' like that? Or would the performance increase be marginal and not worth the effort? Which it would be, I'm very much a newbie so it would take me several days when I could be doing something else with my ready to go landing page already. Thanks so much for any advice!
