I have a custom styled static page that I'd like to set as a home/landing page for a site using the Twenty Eleven theme. I can't seem to find any information on implementing a custom (ie- I made it) home/landing page for this particular theme, is it possible? How do I go about doing this?

I'm guessing the terminology is different but here are a few links to look at


- save your custom page as custom-page-template.php in your theme folder
- create a new page from WordPress Menu
- choose your custom-page from the template drop down on the add new page page
- Save and View your page
