Support » Theme: Twenty Twelve » Front Page Template?

  • Hello! I am a newbie when it comes to making websites, so I have been trying different themes out. Although when I tried this one I couldn’t figure out how to use the “Front Page Template”. I got this message when trying to put widgets in the first front page & second front page areas: “Appears when using the optional Front Page template with a page set as Static Front Page”.

    How do I use the Front Page template?!

    Thank You! 😀

  • Hey,

    What you have to do is first create your front page. Lets say you create a new page called “Home”. Then go into your Settings > Reading and set “front page” to “Home” and then you will have a static front page where you can use these widgets. In reading I also suggest to select the page you wish to use for blog.

    Okay, I finally did it! Thanks for your help! 🙂

    I have the same issue on this site:

    I followed the instructions, added a text widget with 2 links in the “First Front Page Widget Area”, set the page as static, used the Frontpage Template for that page…but I can’t see the widget yet 🙁

    Can anyone help me?

    your iframe code in the page has a broken closing tag (the > is missing);
    from the html in the browser:

    <p><code><iframe src="http://...whatever..." height="400" width="99%" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe<code></p>

    Thank you but the Gold chart still loads perfectly.

    Do you think that closing tag may stop WordPress from displaying the widget?

    Actually all I added between < code > and < code > was:

    <iframe src="" height="400" width="99%" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe
    without opening and closing tags.

    this is the closing tag – and it is missing the >


    should be:


    OK, that works but then I had to change the opening one too 🙂
