That is how some of us build our sites... by surfing the net and
getting ideas. Some may not always work on your site and some may.
I never had an "entance" page to mine until I saw a few other sites that had
it. Thought it was a really good idea, I use it as a "welcome" page and
announcements to the site. Of course I'm not going to duplicate (copyright
suff) exactly what they did, but know I can do something along those lines.
My visitors don't seem to mind that either, I just hope they're smart enough
to bookmark that page and not any other. That way they can see what's new &
updated off the bat. BUT, I still mark things "new" and "updated". Some
webmasters like that option and others don't.
Quite a while ago, I was at site that had the same type of "entrance" page.
I don't know how it was done, but I know it took some doing. They had a
picture of a house, more like a doll house. Each room had a link into it say
to "societies" in one and "libraries" in another. It was really neat and I
have NO clue how it was done.
