WordPress Static Front-Page Not Working? Enterprise Pro, Genesis Child ThemeHOSTING
Hostgator Shared Server - Aluminum PlanBROWSER
Google Chrome, Edge, FirefoxBACKGROUND:
I want to experiment with using a static home page. First, I create a new page with slug: "home-page". Then, I create a new page with slug: "blog-page". Then, I go to WP Admin Panel > Settings > Reading, and select the appropriate static pages for "home" and "posts".
Since there is not yet any content on the "/home-page/", I expect for all the default Enterprise Pro theme "front-page" widgets to be gone. But, they are still showing up.
When I "edit" the "/home-page/" page, the slug shows only the main site url. The slug is missing. Probably normal behavior when you select "Static" home page in the WP Admin Panel > Reading settings.PROBLEM:
Since there is no content on the /home-page/, I expect when I navigate to the main site URL, there should be no content. Instead, I still see all the default widgets and content. Is this normal, or is there something I am missing?NOTE:
All the widgets are setup in the WP Admin Panel > Appearance > Widgets area. I remove cache and cookies prior to testing.
