404 and Not Found Error on home page (5 posts)

    There is a 404 or Not Found error on the home page no matter what theme I use. The other page is fine and does not show the error. I am new here and not entirely techy, so any help would be great.

    I was just getting started determining which template I liked best. site is http://www.tarahedman.com. Not sure what I did to cause it, but I can't shake the 404 error. I've checked out the other posts on this subject and am not coming up with the answer, and am hoping I haven't made the situation worse. Ugh.
    Help please! Thanks!

    Take a look in general settings > reading and see if the "Front page displays" - Your latest posts button is checked.

    In your Settings > Reading, what options are selected... "Your latest posts" or a "Static Page"?

    Does it happen with default wordpress themes?

    Thanks for your quick responses.
    The "Your Latest Posts" button is not checked, but "A Static Page" is checked.

    Change it to latest posts for now. Then if you create a page to serve up on the home page later, you can switch it to serve up that page.
