I just started building wordpress templates after coming from .NET so I am a bit new to it all.
While building a template I have several pages that I want to be filled with static content and not managed by the cms.
The solution I am using is to create page template files and then pages with no content in them. Ie page-how-i-work.php has the info, and its page inside of the cms is empty.
I contemplate putting the html inside the CMS but if I did that then I would be unable to use version control to easily track changes.
Is there a better convention that I am missing?
