Support » Fixing WordPress » Where is my homepage with Allegiant theme?

    Hi all,

    I know just enough of WordPress to be dangerous. My previous experience in using WordPress was several years ago and the homepage was http://website/index.php. I am setting up a WordPress site for a local sports team and Allegiant was chosen as the theme. While I can edit the homepage I do not see it listed in the pages section of WP. Not a big deal but it is making me curious about where it resides. Compounding that the website must be bilingual English/French. I have installed Polylang and it seems to be working well. But again, the French homepage is not listed in the pages section of WP. I can see the French homepage if I enter http://website/fr/ but it does not have any of the features automatically loaded that the English version got by default when I loaded the sample data for Allegiant.

    I have two questions:
    Where is the homepage actually located if the theme does not show it as a page?
    Is there anything I can do to get the /fr/ version of the homepage to load all of the features that are in the English version?

    OK, I’ll throw in a third question. Directing people to http://website/fr/ as a toggle for language is not a big deal but I have seen sites where it is
    http://website/?lang=fr I assume that /?lang=fr is a cleaner method to direct visitors to the site. Is the difference because of how the multilingual link is set up or is there deeper significance?

    Thanks all in advance.

    I recommend asking at https://wordpress.org/support/theme/allegiant so the theme’s developers and support community can help you with this.

    Figured out that the homepage is built into the theme so updates to the home page is really done through the customize function of the theme and adding/subtracting the various optional sections. Also, with the polylang plugin added, selecting the French menu item when customizing the page switches to the French version of the home page and so no /fr/ is needed.
