Support » Fixing WordPress » Edit page not showing any code

  • [ Moved to the Fixing WordPress sub-forum. ]

    My website is working fine, but I am confused as to why I can no longer see my Home page code in WordPress.

    From my WordPress Dashboard, I select Pages then click on “Home – Front Page” to display the Edit Page form. The Edit Page form is displayed but there is no code showing in the main code area with either Visual or Text tab. What is going on? I have no idea how to edit my Home page now.

  • Most themes have a “Theme Options” page that allows you to edit home page layout / content etc.

    Thank you for your response but I don’t think you understood my issue. Maybe I did not explain my problem clearly enough.

    I am editing my website using the WordPress editor. From the Dashboard, I select pages from the menu. Then from the Pages screen I select the page that shows my home page content. This page is called “HOME”. After clicking on HOME I am taken to the Edit Page screen. On this Edit Page screen there is a big box area where I can add code and content for my Home page. This box is blank and I don’t know why. If I view my website, the HOME page displays perfectly fine. So my question is, where is the code for my Home page if it’s not showing up on the Edit Page? I need to make some changes to my Home page but cannot do so because the code is not being displayed in the editor box.

    I completely understand your situation. Please follow the steps I mentioned above.

    I have checked Theme Options and nothing has changed from when my website was published. All of the available options are correctly set. Modifying any of these options would only affect the visible published page, not the Edit page where content is added in WordPress.

    So, I am still baffled as to why my HOME page content is not visible on the Edit page.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions or thoughts? This is very strange…

    I have provided a screenshot of the WP Edit Page showing the content area being blank.

    Thank in advance…

    The code is in the “Business Template” file within your theme file.
