    When I went to my website last night I got an error that the homepage could not be found. I’m able to access every other page on the site except that one. I’ve tried to update it through the Theme Options but that hasn’t worked. I just changed my site over to the Responsive theme so I’m still trying to learn all the locations of the inner workings but I don’t think that the Theme Options area is where I created what appeared on the homepage before because I’m not able to add hyperlinks to the text in the Theme Options area.

    my site it teamtexarkana.com

    Also, all this happened before I updated to 1.9.3.7 and now my blog page is assigned to be the homepage for some reason.

    In your theme options under Homepage, is the box “Overrides the WordPress front page option” checked?

    It is checked at the moment but I believe that I have tried it both ways.

    Also, check your settings under Settings > Reading.

    Thanks for the suggestions Bryan. I checked the Reading page and “A Static Page” is selected but “Home” is not an option as the front page and wasn’t when I set up the new theme.

    Should “Override the WordPress front page option” be selected or not? From what I can make of it it should be checked.

    I’m going to have to forward this to our resident Responsive expert Ulrich, hold tight.

    I am using the Free Responsive theme. I have created a child theme off of it and have started making my customized changes – this might be causing the problem but I will continue…

    I am having similar problem. Reading Settings are set to static home page called home. When I click Appearance > Theme Options > Home Page and UNCHECK Overrides the WordPress front page option, my home page goes White – nothing there. Could I be getting this white screen of death because I have created a child theme out of this theme??

    Just to clarify what I mean by “I have created a child theme off of it”. I created a folder called responsive-child in the themes folder and put the style.css in it to override the parent theme – general WP way. Would this be causing the white screen when unchecking override?

    @awakekat child themes should not cause an issue.

    @both Please share your sites.

    @pstoddard,

    Do you remember which version you upgraded from? If you were at an older version like 1.8.9.3, you’ll need to read this:
    http://cyberchimps.com/guide/setting-the-home-page-1-9-0-1-9-1/

    Also, there was an issue that was patched in this version, so you might want to try the latest.

    Thomas – I just started using this theme about a week ago so the version that I was using would have been the last version so 1.9.3.6

    I had the same problem and I fixed it so:
    Settings -> Reading – check Homepage shows the last posts
    And then on theme settings check “Overrides the WordPress front page option”
    or try some combination of these actions – but it works!

    Aaricia – Awesome. That worked great. I’ve got Override checked in Theme Options and Latest Post page selected in Settings
