  • Hello all,
    I am having a problem with my front page not showing any posts. I specify the posts and front page under the ‘READING’ section but nothing seems to work. I’ve created a fresh page called ‘MAIN’ and I set it to be the posts and front page as well but that didn’t help either. If I go to the root of the site, I can see all my posts but it just won’t allow me to specify which page is the front page or posts page. The root of the site is

    Do any of you understand why this is happening?
    Thank you!

  • torinschmitt,

    The root is defaulting to the about us page. Double check your settings. The home page needs to be the Main Index Page ( index.php ) in order to be seen as the root home page.

    In your admin panel

    goto settings -> reading settings

    make a front page as ‘home’ this may contain any introductory text.
    move your blog post into page ‘main’ and now try.

    Thanks guys. I’m not sure I follow. I created a new page called “home” and set my front page and posts page to home but no luck there either. doc4, I know you are saying that the home page needs to be the main index page but how do I make that change?
    Thank you!

    Hey can you answer me these questions – just tell us what is the setting in your seeting->reading page in admin panel

    The front page displays

    Have you selected (that means the yellow dot ) –

    A static page (select below) ??

    * Front page: what is value here??
    * Posts page: what is value here?/

    If you provide this i can surely help


    Go ahead and answer the above questions. WordPress, like any web site defaults to the index page, whether it is a .php or .html. You can try setting the Front Page and Post Page back to “- Select” But without knowing what you are doing this is a little difficult to answer.
