Hi, I only recently came to use wordpress so it’s a total mystery to me. Could anyone please explain how it works as I spent days on reading through the codex, random forums, blogs etc and I can't get my head around it.
For instance I'm using a blank theme. I created a page home.php with all the content I want on and a home page within wordpress when I've made the navigation menu. I assumed that wordpress will automatically grab the content from home.php for the home page on click on home button. But no, as now I get two different home pages. One has the layout from home.php, which is the one I want, and when I click on the home button I get an empty page with the template design and no information and design for the content on it – this page has a different permalink with a page ID.
I want as front page/landing page, design and content wise my home.php page, so when I click on the home button to be sent to the very same home.php page. Here is where all featured posts should show up.
I know I'm doing something wrong but is because I don't understand how all works.
I'm using 3.3.1 and in Settings->Reading-> for Front page displays is ticked the Your latest posts option, if it helps. Please ask and I will rephrase it, if the explaining is too confusing.
I would very much appreciate if anyone could bring some light into this.
