[resolved] Jetpack's mobile theme replaces the front page (3 posts)

    Jetpack's mobile theme replaces the front page with the latest post or with excerpts.

    How would removing a website's most prominent page ever be useful?

    More importantly, how can I disable this behavior?

    Jetpack's Mobile Theme follows your site' reading settings, as set under Settings > Reading in your dashboard.

    If you'd like to display a static front page instead of a list of blog posts, you can change your settings as explained here:

    I hope this helps.

    It did help to refocus my testing.

    The site I am using for testing uses a custom front page built into its theme. When I first saw that the front page was replaced with posts by Jetpack's mobile theme, I immediately investigated Jetpack's configuration settings for it. And, when I saw only a choice between showing excerpts or full posts on the front page, it seemed I had no other choice.

    So, the problem turns out to be incompatibility between this plugin feature and the site theme's built-in front page. Fortunately, the site's theme provides a setting to disable the built-in front page.

    Thank you for your suggestion, which did help lead me to find a work-around.
