Move blog off home page (6 posts)

    I would like to move my blog off my home page. My site is http://livingwellwithepilepsy.com

    I have been able to set a static page for home and a static page for blog. But when I go into Settings to change the front page from posts to static page I get an error code.

    Also my blog seems to be included in the index.php file and not the page-home.php file. I would like to have my front page use the page-home.php file and have my blog use the index.php file.

    I'm not sure how to do this without completely crashing my site.

    Please describe exactly what you are trying to change and where. Also, we need the full text of the error message.

    The error I get when I select static page in my settings and select "home" for my front page and blog for my blog page is as follows:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '=' in /home/content/92/10072992/html/wp-content/themes/theme1776/page-home.php on line 7

    Hmmm
    there doesn't seem to be any extra '=' and I didn't change any code in that file. There does appear to be a missing </div>. Could this be causing the error?

    There's a problem in your current theme. Where did you download it from?

    It is a thememonster theme and was set up by someone else for me.

    I'm sorry but as you are using a commercially supported theme, you need to seek support from the theme's developers - paid or otherwise. We only support themes downloaded from wordpress.org here.

    All I can suggest is that you switch to a theme downloaded from wordpress.org
