is_home() and is_front_page() known to be borked?
My footer.php wants to include some checks to see whether to display some sponsor lines, which depend on whether the (web) page is the home page, or one of a small set of (wp) pages, or a specific (wp) post.
The if statement provided to detect the home page does not trigger with is_home(), nor with is_front_page, nor with is_page(<anything I could think of>) nor with is_single(<ditto.).
I have finally set a global in homepage.php and checked it in the footer. In the course of figuring this hack out, I tweeted and chatted with pals who know WP.
The general impression is that is_home() and is_front_page() are known to be borked. Is this the case? Is there a plan? Is there a good workaround?
