Someone set me up with some custom work on top od another them and now I want to add a "what's new"/"blog"/"latest news" type page that is accessible from the main menu and is NOT the home page.

How can I do that? It is not obvious to me how that is done.

In the admin area,

Go to Settings » Reading, Choose 'A Static Page' from the first set of options & select the two pages you would like to use as the front-page & blog/news page.

Hope this helps, G

Great - thanks. I found that. Now I just have to mangle the css so it looks ok in my template. – Tim Oct 21 '10 at 14:23
Handy tip if you don't know it - if you create a template called 'front-page.php' this will automatically be used on the landing page. Good luck with the CSS! – George Wiscombe Oct 21 '10 at 14:43
