    Hi All.

    I know this may seem stupid but I'm getting a bit desperate so please ......

    I'm experimenting with WP as a CMS and I'm trying to avoid having a static site and a separate blog but I've run into a couple of issues:-

    On static pages I don't want the blog stuff , edit, archives, categories to appear but I do want them on the blog pages.

    How can this be achieved?

    Is there a theme that does this?

    If I use static pages separate from WP and just link out from WP I loose WP as the CMS for the static portion of the site and I don't want that.




    Many Thanks aamcle

    Still thinking about this, can I have two instances of WP? Eg one in httpdocs and one in httpdocs/blog?
    One as a CMS on the static part and the other running a blog.

    looks like I could do that but it's nasty and clumsy, I really want one theme on the static and another on the blog.....
