Please bear with me, I am new to Drupal (I've been adding content for 3 years, now been asked to edit some structural aspects of a site.)
I've been asked to add a static frontpage/homepage to an existing Drupal site with no menus, no headers. This would be a very basic HTML page with an image and 2 links which connect to English and French versions of the main Drupal site.
Is the best way to use a module? I see there is a module called Front Page, but it hasn't been updated in almost 2 years (maybe this is normal?). Is there a more basic way to get a static front page in Drupal, without installing another module?
Also, I am concerned about what will happen to the URL of the current front page if I override it with the Front Page module.
