Hi fachtopia,

It's not really documented anywhere (except in a few posts here and there in this forum), but what you do is create a new Page in the sNews Admin panel -> Pages -> Add new (with your web browser), add your static content to that Page, for example via the include function, or simply by writing text etc in the built-in editor, and then when you've successfully created that new Page, go to Admin -> Site settings -> Content and find the option that says "Use Page as Home page". Use the drop-down menu to select your newly created Page as Home (e.g front page), and you're done. You now have a static home page.

Hope that helps
(And this thread should be in sNews help section, no?)
