Problems with "Settings: Reading" in Admin panel (6 posts)

    I am currently running two entirely different WordPress blogs under two different domain names. Both are version 2.9.2

    Here is the problem. In one of my installations I have options that are missing under the "Settings: Reading" section of the admin control panel. In one installation I am missing the options for "Front Page Displays" ... where you can select static content for your homepage etc. ... strange indeed.

    Has anyone else encountered this problem? How do I get the options "back" so I can create a static homepage in my blog?

    Please let me know!

    Try re-uploading wp-admin and wp-includes from a fresh locally unzipped WordPress fileset through FTP.

    Next, it could be any plugin messing up. Rename the plugins folder through FTP and reload your admin screen and see what happens.

    I am have the same problem and am just wondering where you get a 'fresh locally unzipped wordpress fileset"? Also if I do this then what happens to for example my images file that is part of include?

    Hi Experienceseeker,

    Images in posts or pages are normally uploaded to wp-content/uploads/
    The images in wp-includes are all sort of icons and buttons for WordPress to use.

    I also hit this and I discovered that you don't get the option to set a static page if you don't yet have any pages.

    I had deleted the default "about" page and had no pages, hence had no options in settings/reading to set a static page!

    Don't you feel an idiot sometimes. Don't know where I am going to find one at this time of night though..
