    is the page with a slug of 'home' still around?

    Indeed it is, and under the threat of a sound thrashing, it has now decided to behave itself.
    I'm not 100% certain, but I think the problem maight have been in my theme files somehow rather than in the plugin.

    Hi,

    Am using static page plugin and have a query on its functionality!

    When no page has slug of 'home' the index or front page returns to 'blog' format. If the plugin is still activated then posts on the front page will then be static too?
    i.e. with no date, day or time.

    Is this correct? Am I making sense!

    Wierd!

    I'm working on a WordPress site - with static page installed, when I change the slug of the homepage from 'home' to something else, my posts appear with no time or date stamp, or link from the post title!
    Could be that another plug-in is interfering with it.

    your static front page is a static page, i.e. formatted like a static page. if you change its slug, it remain a static page.

    I had the same question as twotwentysix (unanswered): when using this plugin, is it possible to include a miniloop on the page?

    I tried adding the miniloop code from http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page to the home.php template after the content call, but that didn't work.

    it should work fine if you download the latest version (the page is not up to date)

    OK, I'll just have to play around with it then. I have v2.6 of the plugin installed. I assume that is what you mean by version.

    There's a lack of clarity in the instructions for installing this plugin (IMHO).

    The instructions on the site say:
    1. Create a page titled 'Home'
    2. Activate the plugin and you're done

    It would be more accurate to say:
    1. Select or write the Page you wish to be your Home Page and set the Slug to read: home.
    2. Activate the plugin andc you're done

    If you create a blank page called Home, as the instructions say, your Homepage will simply become that blank page carrying the heading: "Home"! Probably not what you're wanting. The Page you choose as your Homepage, by making its Slug read "home", will have its slug automatically renamed home-2, so it won't be selected by "Static Front Page"..

    Hope that helps someone.

    Ahhhhh! Ok I give in!! Apologies for the last post. If you do as I say, the page selected as the home Page disappears from the sidebar display in the Classic view!! So no chance for the user to get back there from within the site! Adding the Home page gives the results stated in my post above.

    Off to deactivate and try Filosofo . . . unless anyone out there can shed any light??
