    After upgrade of free version of Enigma my site fails to work. Apparently I need to restore the Home page using plug-in Weblizar Companion.
    I have a multi site and installed the plug-in and activated it on the site I need it.
    There is no new tab Import/Export appearing.

    So my question is does this plug-in work on multi site installation?

    I updated the plug-in and now the child’s theme is working in it’s current state.
    I needed to redo the import btw.

    I will add my own additions to do a final test.
    I also updated the other multi site.
    It is quite annoying that you have to do the import twice! Once for the main theme and once for the child’s theme. Can’t this be circumvented?

    Having my home page working again I have another problem with this.
    The creation of this kind of dummy page means that when you do a search on “Home” one of the results is this dummy page. I don’t want this! What is the best way to “hide” this newly created dummy Home page?

    Hello Harm10,
    Firstly please give us some screenshot of your home page so we can figure out what’s the actual issue and which section you are discussing.

    If you are talking about home template dummy content that you don’t want then you can customize the content from customizer option panel in backend or you can disable that section by uncheck in that respective section option tab in customizer.

    if not then please provide screenshot to us. so we can help you out as soon as possible.
    thank you for your patience.

    I already supplied you previously with the link of my live site (which is not yet updated!): Live site

    This site’s home page is shown by setting it to Latest Posts as you needed to do in old theme.
    For the upgraded theme I needed to create a new Page called Home when following the instructions.
    This page has no real content and I used this one in the theme configuration instead of Latest Posts to get to the same lay-out as my live site.
    So far so good. But this fake page called Home is not visible on the home page (which is good!) of my test site but can be found through Search. This page should be hidden!
    Why did I needed to create this page anyway? Couldn’t I have set another real page with content as Home page and still get the same lay-out?
    So it is not related to the lay-out of theme’s home page but the fact that someone can find this fake page through search.

    Hello @harm10 ,

    Actually the static home page template is WPORG;s rule which has to be followed with the theme. So the version 6.0 or above has to follow this rule.

    So you have two options Either use 6.0 and apply the steps given your previously or use this ENIGMA-5.36 .

    Thankyou,

    I fail to see what the use of the page which is attached to home template is.
    It has no effect on the lay-out of the front page whatsoever. After I specified the page in the customizer I can even set it to Concept and the theme remains working.
    Setting it to concept afterwards has the effect that you cannot find it through search any more.

    You cannot just say to your users that this is WP rule and lay back. If you want a page to be attached to home template to make it work but do not do anything with the content that people put in that page then this is plain bad service. It is quite easy to influence by specifying your own action filter. So why don’t you do that in your theme for the attached page to home template?

    BTW I noticed that the translation for the Read more button on the slider does no longer work either. Still some work to do I think……. 🙂

    @harm10 – For you question for Home Template , Kindly read this link for more info.

    @weblizar Kindly read the last line in that linked page: “Connect to your site home page: you should now see the Page you selected.”
    The way you incorporated it in the theme has totally nothing to do with that line……

    If you decide to leave it at this I am forced to add my own filter action to suppress the page attached to the home template from search actions.

    @harm10

    I’m sorry, but this is beyond the scope what we can help with, and it looks like no one else here is able to offer a solution that is satisfactory to you either.

    @weblizar I can do this hiding myself and I will do that (as you force me to do that by designing this change). Perhaps you should look yourself for suitable developers on that site? 🙂

    @harm10 – The Changes are according to the WPORG’s policy, For more info join slack . If they could help you regarding the WPORG’S static page rules.

    Thankyou.

    @weblizar I think you do not get the message. WPORG’s policy is that you need to have an option to display a STATIC page as your home page. The way you have implemented this in theme Enigma has nothing to do with this policy. Although you can now set a static page in the theme’s settings this page does not display at all on your home page if you use the Home template like you to do to keep your settings. That is what I am pointing out.

    Hello @harm10

    Kindly go thru the video and see the explaination.

    Thankyou

    I watched the complete video and it proofs my point entirely!
    For the Home page to display your sliders etc like you specify in your settings you need to create a new page (in the instruction this is called Home) assign Home template to it and after importing your settings you get back your initial Home page which has not the content of that newly created page called Home.
    But while doing so you have created a page that is used nowhere.
    But if you search on text “Home” you will find this page and can display it as a normal page. This page has no content whatsoever and is not really part of your written content!

    So you are misusing the rule that you need to be able to set a static page by assigning it Home template resulting in NOT displaying that page as Home page.
    If you would have taken the bother to add this page’s id to the filter action in search then all changes would be fine!

    BTW what happens if you assign Home template to more than one page?

    Hello @harm10 ,

    HOME TEMPLATE – is here only to showcase themes custom home page. Yes this template home will show only predesignated page, without showing the Content written in editor. As the custom home template usually understood by the user that it is only will showcase only preassigned layout.

    Also you can use as many Home page but the thing is that IT will only show the predesignated custom home page .

    Happy to help you.

    Thankyou.
