    First time here so hi to all.
    Site was working fine till this weekend. Not edited it for a week or so as it always works, now it has no home page. It's all still in my dashboard and other pages are working. (contacform 7 is broken so writing new form)

    The plugin easyslider on my home page) shows up as deactivated in my plugins but it was all working fine before weekend. I updated 'easyslider'

    formated home page though the text and short code was all still there.

    did it all again and still I get 404 but with my menu and background.

    If you go to Dashboard > Settings > Reading, what radio button is selected for the first option "Front page displays"?

    I'd guess that "A static page (select below)" is selected, but maybe that page was accidentally deleted? If so, check under Dashboard > Pages > All Pages > Trash to see if it's there and can be restored.

    N's not it The 'submit data page' is not yet static and has not been finished yet. 'Contact form 7' is broken, so writing a form separate in html. I can delete it for now to see if it helps.

    Not sure, have you contacted them to see if they could lend a hand?

  8. Same as with any site, delete your files, delete the DB, start over :)
