[resolved] Search Error on Home Page (8 posts)

    My Home page always comes up with

    Not Found. Apologies, but no results were found for the requested archive. Perhaps searching will help find a related post. Search for:

    How can I keep this from happening?

    Also, can I add page content to the body of the Home page (below the page list just below the header and above the footer)?

    1. Try resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting. If this works, then review Using_Permalinks before setting a custom permalink structure back up again.

    2. Try editing your theme's index.php template file.

    I'm a newbie. As far as I know, my permalinks are still set as defaults, because I have not intentionally set up any custom permalinks.

    Where do I find my theme's index.php template file?

    Thank you.

    I found index.php, which loads wp-blog-header.php, which contains the following:

    <?php
    /**
     * Loads the WordPress environment and template.
     *
     * @package WordPress
     */
    if ( !isset($wp_did_header) ) {
    	$wp_did_header = true;
    	require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/wp-load.php' );
    	wp();
    	require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/template-loader.php' );
    }
    ?>

    Any suggestions about editing this file?

    Thanx,
    Ron

    Do not edit any core files. Instead try posting a link to your site so we can see it.

    Esmi,

    I've solved the problem. I had deleted the "Hello World" post and my theme looks for posts. I created a static Home page and then hid the Posts page. It seems to work fine.

    Thank you for your time and your help.

    Ron
