I am lost when it comes to looking at the database in PHPMyAdmin. I see those different fields (Option-ID, Blog-ID, Option_name, Option_value, Autoload) in the wp-options table, but as far as editing to check what the static page nr/ID is, I have no clue!
On my original settings, before all this began, I had my page titled HOME set as the static page (ID 7), and I had nothing selected for the posts page, because I would post to numerous categories, not just one particular page per se.
Since then, I have tried creating a new blank page (called TEST), and setting it as the posts page, and still no improvement.
I then tried selecting the TEST page to be the static page. When I did that, the HOME page link would now go to the correct path (http://kentuckyassociationforenvironmentaleducation.org/?page_id=7), and if you click on TEST, it (incorrectly) displays the most recent posts.
Obviously changing settings via the control panel is not writing to the database correctly, right? I REALLY need to get this right - the group I do the site for is freaking out! Can you provide a little more explanation on how to edit that table?
And I am still concerned as to how this could have happened when I made no changes to the site, yet one day it just starts showing like that! A database driven site has proven to be WAY more work for me than the old-fashioned way of using Dreamweaver to simply update pages! UGH!
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
