Front page options missing (6 posts)

    When I follow the steps admin>settings>reading to try and set a static front page there are no options there for me to do so.
    The only options provided relate to the number of posts.
    I have tried removing everything and starting right from scratch but still have been unable to find where the static front page options are.
    As a newbie I am sure to be doing something very basic wrong so any advice gratefully recieved.

    I have the same problem. Version 2.8.4 upgraded consistently since before 2.7.

    The static page options only appear if the get_pages() call returns pages. If you already have published pages, there must be something going wrong there.

    Great. Thanks, Kawauso. Here's another question. I added a page called main page, which I want on the front page, with my already-existing blog on a separate blog tab, but both the "Front page" and "Posts page" options give me only the new page I created. How do I put the blog in the "Posts" area?

    Make a new page called Blog or something and set the Posts page to that, it'll just replace the page contents with your posts
