I’m using the Creative Burst theme and emailed the designer for help at the beginning of the week, but I wondered if there was something really simple that I’m getting wrong with my home page and Genesis?
When using http://www.gillianlewisspectrum.co.uk, I land on the page that I want to see using the Creative Burst theme – but this is not http://www.gillianlewisspectrum.co.uk/home which is completely blank.
Originally I set up the site with a static home page but found all of the landing page stuff I liked was on the blog page. So I played around with the settings and deleted off the original home page to see whether that would resolve things – and now when I’ve recreated a home page, it’s blank.
I can delete off the home page again and just have users click the banner to see the landing page I want them to see – but I can’t help thinking that users will expect to have a home button to navigate.
Help would be appreciatedhttp://www.gillianlewisspectrum.co.uk
I think I follow you there. Many try a static homepage, but find they like all the goodies that a modern tricked-out homepage will give them.
Your “home” page is indeed a Page. I would suggest trying this. Since you don’t need that Page, delete it. Then go to Appearance…. Menus, and be sure you’re viewing the menu in question. I think your “Home” menu item should be gone now (if not, delete it).
Now over towards the left, you should see “Pages”. Click “View All”, and a Home should be visible somewhere in the list. Check it, and add it to your menu. It should be labeled “Custom” instead of “Pages”, because it’s not a Page. Drag it to where you want it, and Save. You should be all set.
