Where is my home page? (5 posts)

    I'm a total newbie so forgive me for the dumb question. Someone else set up our site for us. I am trying to find where our main page content is stored. It is *not* one of our posts. It's static content. The footer says it hasn't been updated since last August. But when I go into Settings>Readings, "front page displays latest posts" is checked which makes no sense.

    Here is our site:
    http://www.mockingbirdsociety.org/

    I looked at the template for the index page and it has the code for the images but there isn't any text.

    Ideas?

    Thanks!

    maybedog,

    WordPress uses php so the text is more than likely within a page or post. You mention that it isn't in on e of the posts, you might try looking through the pages.

    Log into the dashboard, on the left side go to appearance editor. All the files will be listed on the left. Open footer.php - that is where the date is.

    maybedog,

    Must have blanked on this one, kmessinger has the right idea. Let us know if you're still have trouble with this.

    Sorry, I only work on the site once in a while (I'm a contractor). It's not in one of the pages, either. I know where the footer is but I can't figure out where the main body content is coming from. Rather, I can find the index.php page which is pulling in the dynamic photos but I can't find the text. So below is the text of the index page. I'm sure the PHP is referencing some includes that have the text but I can't find them in the same directory. It must be interacting with WordPress to pull them in.

    <?php get_header(); ?>
        <div id="content">
        	<div id="left">
            	<?php include('sidebar-page.php'); ?>
            </div>
            <div id="right">
            	<?php $oImg = array("pic-home-1.jpg","pic-home-2.jpg","pic-home-3.jpg","pic-home-5.jpg","pic-home-6.jpg","pic-home-7.jpg","pic-home-8.jpg","pic-home-9.jpg","pic-home-10.jpg","pic-home-11.jpg","pic-home-12.jpg","pic-home-13.jpg","pic-home-14.jpg","pic-home-15.jpg","pic-home-16.jpg");
    	$num = count($oImg);
    	$ran = rand(1,$num)-1; ?>
            	<img id="hmRotator" src="<?php bloginfo('template_url');?>/images/<?php echo $oImg[$ran]; ?>" alt="Test" /><br />
                <?php if(is_home()) { query_posts("cat=1&showposts=1"); } ?>
            	<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    	<div <?php post_class() ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    	<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    	<div class="entry">
    	<?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>
    </div>
    </div>
    <?php endwhile; else : ?>
                <h2 class="center">Not Found</h2>
                <p class="center">Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.</p>
                <?php get_search_form(); ?>
    	<?php endif; ?>
            </div>
            <span class="clear"></span>
            <div id="footer">
            	<?php get_footer(); ?>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    Suggestions?
    Thanks!
