Setting up the Eco Theme so that "posts" go to an added page "News" and the "Front" page goes to a static page named "Home".

To do this I do the following:

1) add a "Home" page
2) add a "News" page
3) go into Permalinks under Settings

- set "Front Page Displays" to a static page - Front Page "Home" page

- set "Posts Page" to a "News" page

The "Home" page button does not appear in the Nav Bar. If I don't set the "Front Page" to any specific page, then the "Home" button appears on the Nav Bar but displays the "Posts" page.

Want to get the following result:

  • Front Page displays the Home page
  • Posts go to News page
  • Home Button appears in Nav Bar

I got this to work in the White House Theme, but having the above problem in Eco Theme.

Thanks.

I'm unable to duplicate the problem, can you send a live link? What page template are trying to setup for your home page?

sweet site! to fix this you'll need to edit _nav.php find this code: `$frontpage_id = get_option('page_on_front');` and change to `$frontpage_id = '';` the front page is excluded from nav by default
