I have a problem with my home page, I can't get it to show a static page.
I did rename it at one point, but got into the database with PHPAdmin and fixed all the titles, so I know that is not the problem. I have created many different page files, all have the same problem if I want to set them as a static page for my home page.
I have tried many things, including the wordpress codex suggestions for setting up a static page (with a blank page for blog posts), but nothing is working. All that happens is an error page shows up saying "this page has a redirect loop".
I removed the home page from the menu but still no luck.
I was not able to follow the codex suggestion on how to fix this in a php template file - I checked every php file and could not find any hard links for menu items.
My website is not live, so I can't post a URL to show anyone. I can preview the page I want as my home page from within the page edit screen in WP, but I cannot directly call up the page in my browser.
I'm really frustrated since the theme developer's website is down. I've been trying to figure this out for about 2 days now, so would appreciate anyone's help with this.
Thanks for your help,
