When you set your front page how are you setting it? Are you setting the front page to posts or a static front page?
If you're setting the front page to a posts page then it will use the blog template, so you're meta settings will need to be selected via Pagelines>page options>blog page and the sections you want to appear on the template will need to be set on Pagelines>drag and drop>blog.
If the page is a static page in your settings, then make sure you have the relevant items in the static template. For content to show make sure you have the content section in the 'page template' area, make sure you also have the postloop section in the 'content area'. Both of these are required for the content to display on the page.
