Support » Fixing WordPress » Homepage pointing to static page

  • Resolved amymanning


    My home page on: is pointing to a new static page, and it doesn’t even show the page correctly (my sidebar is removed). I need it to show my most recent posts.

    I’ve tried:
    -verifying the reader settings are set correctly
    -switching to a different theme and get the same problem

    What do I do?

    Thank you for creating with WordPress. | Documentation | FeedbackVersion 3.0.1

    Okay, so, I’m really needing some help on this subject. Where else should I go for help?

    deactivate this plugin
    get blog working correctly
    re-activate plugin

    Holy cow, that was simple. Thanks, I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure this thing out.

    Do you think that plugin was broken or did I have it installed incorrectly?

    Thanks a trillion.

    it’s not broken – it just does funny thing sometimes with static pages – it interferes with the wp redirect engine

    you can enable it again and it will work fine
