2 home pages...now blank page (3 posts)

    Hi!
    I wanted a static front page. I accomplished this by modifying the home page by creating two new pages, one for static and one for posts, and selecting "static page" button in SETTINGS>>READING. Now I want to revert back to FRONT PAGE DISPLAYS LATEST POSTS, but when I do that I get a blank home page.

    My theme has an option for displaying a home page or not and it has options for pages to be either "default", "archive," or a "blog page." I have played with those settings to no avail. Still a blank home page when the FRONT PAGE DISPLAYS LATEST POSTS button is selected. Help??

    When you display latest posts on home page, the default file that is loaded is index.php. I would check that one to see if it has the right code.

    Thanks for your help!

    I checked the index.php code and because it is a child theme it was linked to the parent. The index.php for the parent was screwed up so I replaced it with the original code that I uploaded from the Theme package, but still I get a blank page when I select FRONT PAGE DISPLAYS LATEST POSTS.

    I checked my plug-ins and found a "drop in." It reads
    "advanced-cache.php Advanced caching plugin. Inactive: Requires define('WP_CACHE', true); in wp-config.php."

    Maybe it all has something to do with that??
