Static home page not showing

    Hi,

    I have applied a static homepage to my theme and need to customise it but the page is not appearing in the file manager on my hosting site, where all the other pages do.

    Is there a reason for this, do static home pages not appear as the other pages do?

    Thanks.

    Hi rwitham,

    Are you sure did you upload it to your hosting? If so, I think the problem is the file browser of your hosting provider.

    You may ask their support for further information for this issue.

    I hope this will help you

    … do static home pages not appear as the other pages do

    unless you create a special page template for the staic front page, the page will get generated dynamically with page.php and the page content from the database – there is no ‘physical’ page on the server which you could access with the file manager.

    what other pages are you referring to?

    Guys,

    Thanks for your help, @alchymyth: that’s exactly what I wanted to know. I was referring to page templates that I’ve created that show in both the file manager and the WP editor. I had thought that the static home page would be as a separate file as it is editable separately in the interface, but now that I need to edit the code behind, I suppose I will just need to create a new home page template in my file manager and start that page from scratch?

    Thanks
