Hi Wes: I installed your Follow Me theme but the home page is not showing. I followed the instructions (Appearance -. Customize …) but no workee.
What am I doing wrong?
I just checked your link and it looks like you may have a Page set as your homepage which is preventing the Homepage widgets from showing (like the demo). I would need to take a closer look to see what’s going on for sure, but either way I know I can get it figured out pretty quickly.
To activate the Homepage (like the demo), just drag a widget over into one of the Homepage widget areas. Once you do this, it should automatically show that widget on your homepage. If you don’t add any widgets, then the theme is designed to show your Blog posts by default. So if you want to activate and use the custom homepage template like the demo, all you would need to do is add a widget into one of the home widget locations.
Unlike other themes, you won’t need to create a page and label it home, or change your Front Page Displays (in your settings) to show your homepage. Simply using the homepage widget locations will activate it immediately. I wrote a short tutorial/explanation here in the tutorials – https://appfinite.com/tutorials/how-to-setup-the-home-and-blog-page/
If adding a widget to one of your homepage widgets isn’t showing on your homepage, then double check your Front Page Displays setting. Go to Settings > Reading > Front Page Displays and make sure it’s set to Latest Posts, and that should fix it.
I can login for you and install the demo content if you want. It would only take a sec. I can see if there are any issues preventing you from setting it up as well. All I would need is a temporary login.
I can get it all setup in a matter of seconds. Just let me know!
