I did a stupid. Last year when I was setting up the blog I downloaded the sem-static-front.php plugin and made a lovely intro page and then added a bit of php code at the bottom of the "home" page that showed the posts from a bunch of the main categories. Yesterday when I was modifying the page with some experimental code I managed to delete the line and I can't figure out what it was.
WordPress 1.5.2, Static Front Page Version: 1.3
It was something all on one line that looked like...
<phpcode><?php _____('[a list of categories to actually show]')</phpcode>
It referenced back to the index.php template because any style changes I made there were reflected on the front page and it showed all the bits (title, coments, the post itself... etc.). It wasn't any of the tags I have tried.
I'm feeling like a complete idiot but I can't solve this... help?
