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 126.96.36.199 and now my blog page is assigned to be the homepage for some reason.October 4, 2013 at 8:49 am #128585
In your theme options under Homepage, is the box “Overrides the WordPress front page option” checked?October 4, 2013 at 8:58 am #128590
It is checked at the moment but I believe that I have tried it both ways.October 4, 2013 at 2:36 pm #128652
Also, check your settings under Settings > Reading.October 4, 2013 at 2:42 pm #128656
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.October 4, 2013 at 2:57 pm #128664
I’m going to have to forward this to our resident Responsive expert Ulrich, hold tight.October 4, 2013 at 7:40 pm #128675
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??October 4, 2013 at 7:56 pm #128676
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?October 4, 2013 at 11:26 pm #128689
@awakekat child themes should not cause an issue.
@both Please share your sites.October 5, 2013 at 7:46 am #128722
Do you remember which version you upgraded from? If you were at an older version like 188.8.131.52, you’ll need to read this:
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 220.127.116.11October 5, 2013 at 2:32 pm #128784
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!October 5, 2013 at 3:20 pm #128791
Aaricia – Awesome. That worked great. I’ve got Override checked in Theme Options and Latest Post page selected in SettingsOctober 5, 2013 at 6:19 pm #128798
Thanks for the info AariciaOctober 6, 2013 at 4:02 am #128823
I’m glad it works in your sites also :)
