Template + Front Page + Gallery = No Images? (7 posts)

    I have done the following:

    Template: Home
      name: home
      slug: home
      template: home
    Permalinks: %postname%
    Reading->Front Page: home

    On my home page I've got text and a gallery of images.

    Everything works fine if I visit the page directly with:

    But if I visit the root and WP renders home as the front page the gallery doesn't display, though the text still does.

    I am getting the page like so:

    Template Name: Home
    $page = Array("about" => 2);  // will be bringing content from other pages
    $home = get_page($pages['about']);

    And then rendering it:
    <?php echo apply_filters('the_content', $home->post_content); ?>

    To remedy the problem I tried a quick bandaid approach of checking the get variables for page_id--if absent, forward to /home and the images work great. That worked with permalinks set to default. Now that I've got permalinks enabled, the get array is always empty!

    So I've got a bandaid approach right now, I dropped this at the top of my Home template.

    if($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] == '/') {
    	header('location: /home/');

    So my first hope is to get it to work w/o having a redirect. Seems like it's something similar to apply_filters. If not possible, I'm totally fine with checking the request uri and then forwarding to /home

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am using a static front page. That's the root of the problem.

    When it renders the static front page it doesn't display the gallery in the page content. If I visit the page directly then it displays everything correctly.

    What gallery? Is this a group of images that were uploaded whilst editing that page?

    Yes, default wordpress installation 2.9. Edit a page, upload some files, click "insert gallery." No plugins.

    Yes - but did you upload the images whilst working on this page - your front page?
