I have just upgraded from 2.5 to 2.5.1 because for some reason I didn't have the option to choose a static homepage under wp-admin/options-reading.php, but to my surprise I still don't have that possibility...
mmm, gonna try the link again, as that didn't work either...
This is so weird! Have you tried deleing the current options-reading.php off your server and reuploading it?
I'll bet there's a plugin installed which nerfs that option, because it might conflict with the plugin's purpose.
Don't mean to embarrass myslef here, but, I am using 2.5.
I have it on a local machine as i try and work enough out before i upload to a host..or rebuild.
But when i select Settings/Readings ..the first option at top of page allows me to select a static page as my home page. I tested it and it works for me. But as said, im only on my local machine.
when i then enter into explorer http://localhost/wordpress
Up pops the static page i made as my default.
Ivovic was most likely correct, as I have done a complete re-install and now the option is there.
Thanks all for your time :D
