    I'd suggest you ask the developers of the theme you are using about this - as it appears to be a theme issue.

    I have done all this hon, i have 7 wordpress websites. Your static home page shouldn't have a comment box at the bottom. That should be your blog page. The static page should look like the template when you set the Home page to Static and the Blog page to Post.

    Your static home page shouldn't have a comment box at the bottom.

    It does unless you turn the comments off - go to the pages screen, hover over QuickEdit and uncheck allow comments.

    On your site, in twentythirteen, look at the body tag in the output HTML - what shows up? It's a page like this:

    <body class="home page page-id-40 page-parent page-template page-template-page-templatesfull-width-php logged-in admin-bar no-customize-support single-author">

    If it's set to blog, it shows this:

    <body class="home blog logged-in admin-bar no-customize-support single-author">

    Yep, so the first one is a static page and the second one is a blog.

    Okay so the reason that the theme is not looking like the demo example is because there is a issue with the theme itself. Usually as soon as i setup the static page and blog page up, the homepage template looks like the demo that I purchased. there are a ton of components missing from this theme... its so frustrating because this is the one my customer wants and has paid for. thanks for your help i really appreciate it

    Do you have any idea why the theme option tab isn't working. I go to appearance --> theme options ---> and i get a blank page.

    Definitely sounds frustrating - hope the developer of the theme can help you out with it!

    Unfortunately, since we have no access to commercial themes, we really have no way to know what might be wrong. A blank page sounds fairly major - have you checked as to whether it's compatible with WP3.8?

    And you're running it on WP3.8?

    Like I said, we have no way to support commercial themes in any case - http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Commercial_Products

    It's really not a good idea to use an outdated version of WP as it's a major security risk - i.e. your chances of getting hacked are greatly increased.
