I am helping a friend with his web site. I have worked on a number of WP sites but I'm confused as to what is happening. He wants a static front page which it is already set up to be. Yet, after designing a new page to BE the new home front page, and tried to change it from what it was previously pointing go, it won't 'release' the one it's set to. It's registering the new page under the Reading settings but still looks like the old page it was directed to. Someone else was working on the site previously so maybe there is some code this person used to make this permanent? Or something? It's a site that is directed to a /page of his main site until it's done being redesigned (hope that makes sense).
?? What to do? Thanks.
