I am trying to set up a static page for the home page of my website. I had a home page set up, but when you click on the logo of my website, it hangs forever until you get a "this page has a redirect loop" error page.
At this point I could care less whether or not it shows blog pages as I am running WooCommerce and that's all I really care about.
I have followed the wp codex instructions but they don't work. I have set up a static page called 'test' and a blank page called 'blank' following these instructions.
I have de-activated WP Supercache and deleted any code related to it in my htaccess file.
As a result, I am getting a search box (from the theme) saying it can't find the static file. It can't even find the home page if I change it back to the default of blog posts.
I have spent two days on this and have a web design person (not a tecchie) waiting to finish her job because she is going on vacation at the end of this week.
I have tried to hire people in the past (for $$) to help with my website but nobody will help, they all say "you seem to know what you are doing, let me know when you're almost ready to go live". So diving into the unknown of hiring someone for this simple little thing is not palatable to me. I have researched as much as I can, but I am at a complete dead end.
The theme I am using is Synapse child theme from Simple Themes.
My site is not live because it is a replacement for my html website and the dev site is under maintenance mode.
Can someone please help me? Please don't mark this post as resolved. It's not.
