page not found, 404 error on my homepage (6 posts)

    I tried changing the permalink structure back to default, and that did not work.

    My site is brand new, and yes I am new to this stuff.

    I think the problem occurred when I tried to edit the sample page that came with the genesis/prose themes.

    Thanks so much for any help.

    Is genesis/prose theme a paid/commercial theme?

    If yes, you may want to contact the vendor's support.

  3. Can you add a few more pages and then go to settings > reading and pick one of those to be your home page?

    Yes, it is worth adding another page and then going to that page to see if you still get the 404.

    It may help to read this about permalinks Permalinks
    There is a section on trouble shooting too.

    you need to check theme option provided or try to relocate new home page via Dashboard -> Setting -> Reading and select a static page.
