Thanks, Eric and dev77. I got them going. Different issue. I had the Static Front Page set to “static page” rather than “show latest posts.” I was thinking since my front page is not a blog, then make it static. Wrong.

Now let’s see what other problem I can face. Thankfully, it’s probably content at the moment. . .
