Support » Plugins » Problems with Semiologic Static Front Page using K2 Theme

  • jsh76maccom


    Hi everyone,

    I’m having trouble getting the Semiologic Static Front Page plugin to work while using the K2 theme.

    The home page successfully comes up as the default/first page when I access the domain, but it does so within the blog section (called “news” on my blog). I want the page to come up first, but on its own page- not within the loop. I’m not sure how it’s getting in the loop because it is a separate page. I can’t access the separate page, I click the link and it takes me back to the page within the loop.

    Any thoughts?

    I’m using both the newest version of the semiologic plugin and of wordpress.

    My site:

    I hacked the header file a little bit to allow me to order the pages the way I want, could this be causing the problem? My changes:

    <div id="header">

    <ul class="menu">
    <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=7,8,9,10,11&title_li='); ?>
    <li class="<?if (((is_home()) && !(is_paged())) or (is_archive()) or (is_single()) or (is_paged()) or (is_search())) { ?>current_page_item<?php } ?>">">News
    <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=6,8,9,10,11,15&title_li='); ?>
    <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=6,7,9,10,11,15&title_li='); ?>
    <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=6,7,8,10,11,15&title_li='); ?>
    <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=6,7,8,9,11,15&title_li='); ?>
    <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=6,7,8,9,10,15&title_li='); ?>
    <?php wp_register('

  • ','
  • '); ?>


    I’ve searched extensively in the wordpress support and codex

    as well as on the k2 flickr discussion

    and on the semiologic faq/docs

    and I even mucked around in the PHP files for the header, index, and pages.

    I’d love some help on this!

    I believe the faq has your answer



    I think you’re referring to the “I want a static front page and a normal blog” AQ, but is it the only workaround? When I used the plugin with themes besides K2 this wasn’t necessary and I didn’t have the current problem (by default users are sent to my “home” page which is put in the blog tab, and the blog isn’t visible)

    The AQ is not the most elegant of solutions. Is it the only one?
