Customizing The Front Page Of Your Site
Lesson Eight of my special Getting Started With Drupal series of videos.
In this tutorial I show you some simple ways of creating a more custom look on the front page of your site. All blog posts are demoted from the front page. Blocks are moved into different regions allowed by the theme. A node is created specifically for the front page. Finally, I show you how to make some basic changes to the tpl.php template file so that you can have a front page that doesn't require any nodes to be published on it.
