    I’m trying to make the Executive portfolio page be the home page, and found this article:

    http://www.studiopress.com/forums/topic/custom-home-php-for-portfolio-home-page-executive-theme/

    However, I don’t see any file named page-portfolio.php – where is this file located?

    Also, the portfolio page:

    http://thetrafficdiva.com/portfolio/

    Isn’t updating in Chrome or Safari when changes are made, even after clearing cache; however, they show up immediately in FF.

    Finally, how does one change the permalink structure of the portfolio, though I guess once I make the home page the portfolio page, it will just look:

    http://thetrafficdiva.com

    Right?

    Thanks

    Delete home.php and rename single-portfolio.php to home.php in your child themes folder

    Not sure about browser issues but they can take some time to change. Maybe its server caching.

    Correct

    Brad,

    SoZo’s instruction on that stated to delete the home.php and then rename page-portfolio.php to home.php.

    @Hoppe, you will need to do that using FTP. If you use FTP and go to your themes file folder on the server, you will see it there.

    I think its archive-portfolio.php or single-portfolio.php that needs to be renamed to home.php.

    This depends on what you want to display on your homepage.

    archive-portfolio.php is correct in this case.

    Here’s the source code for the page they want displayed on the homepage
    [html]
    body class="archive post-type-archive post-type-archive-portfolio full-width-content
    [/html]

    There is no page-portfolio.php file

    In the Child Theme there are the following:

    archive-portfolio.php

    single-portfolio.php

    I tried renaming each of those to home.php, and neither made the portfolio page the home page.

    Other suggestions?
