Whoops!  Sorry for the top-post, before, and also for my sloppiness in
the before-and-after pictures of the .htaccess file.  Delete that
reply, please, and use this one:

There are at least a couple of ways to do this.  One would be to
create a special version of the skin for your Main/HomePage that
doesn't incorporate any of the Site-group or other Main-group pages,
then set read-access to Main/HomePage to @nopass.

Another way would be to create an all-html version of index.php, with
the material you want your visitors to see, just with normal html
markup.  Where I've done this, I've customized the root-level
.htaccess file
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([A-Z].*) /index.php?n=$1 [L,qsappend]
RewriteRule ^$ /index.php [L,qsappend]
php_flag display_errors off

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([A-Z].*) /pmwiki.php?n=$1 [L,qsappend]
RewriteRule ^$ /index.php [L,qsappend]
php_flag display_errors off

(and I've also incorporated an html link somewhere to the site's
Main/HomePage for my own convenience.)

There are probably other approaches, as well.  Ask if you need more information,
