Is it possible to change the first page to informational rather than products?

You can add any text between the two ' ' using html.and it will show on index page at the top.
I am not a coder, so dont bother sending PMs asking for help as you wont get any.
OSC has a steep learning curve, but in general the program does work. If it doesnt work, the chances are it is something you have done.

You could use an .htaccess redirect to send the customer to an information page when they first enter the site. Similar to this one:
The .htaccess code would be something like this:
RewriteRule ^$ /xxxxx/information.php?info_id=3 [R=301]

What does this mean...
?info_id=3 [R=301] in the post above?
How do I redirect them back from that page?
Sorry - this is probably really basic - I just need to get past this then can move on...but I can't see all of the source :0)

You don't need this to achieve what you want, you could redirect to any other page, such as privacy.php, or a new page about_us.php or anything
Such a redirect will force visitors to go to an other page of your store instead of the front page, so I'm not sure if this is what you want
I would do this in the way @14steve14 suggested, he has even something similar on his own website, that is posted for a review, take a look here In that page the front page remain your frontpage instead of hiding it totaly
From there on, there are several other addons available to make your front page even nicer, you could search for "modular frontpage" in the addons, just to name one of them

Do you have to add that code in all the places the /english file exists?

My store is really small, I am selling custom leather goods that I make, as well as candles, horse hair pottery, Raku Pottery, etc - I don't want to appear like a huge "shop" that has a lot of electronics, etc - just a small "homey" shop that is elegant and simple....
I know how to do the layout in simple sitemaking - but not sure how to modify the template set so it looks more like a small shop than large scale discount shopping - not sure if that makes sense - but I just want the usual links like you have accross the top below my banner....
