Home page shows 404 error
A silly problem but I can’t figure it out. On my test blog at http://windwhistle.wordpress.com, I get a 404 error page in place of my home page. I’ve cleaned all the code snippets from the CSS entry page (shouldn’t matter because I don’t have the upgrade) and also tried several several different themes. I tried deleting the most recent posts. I also looked through all my settings and didn’t see anything amiss. Nothing changes. I’m stuck with the 404. Anyone have any ideas what I’ve done?
The blog I need help with is windwhistle.wordpress.com.
Have you actually MADE a post or page to go on the front page? If nothing exists, then it will give you that error because nothing is there to display.
If you want to be helpful polease back-up the answers that you post with links to relevant support documentation and/or forum threads. Thanks, in advanne, for your cooperation.
Edited sue = due and polease = please.
@timethief Nope, a new test post didn’t do it, although “Test Post” does appear in the widget for recent posts. I rather doubted a new post would fix it since the blog has worked properly in the past, with the most recent post always taking its proper place on the front page. I have no idea what’s going on now.
NVM, everyone. I just found the problem. I had checked “static front page” in the settings. Thanks for the suggestions and sorry to have bothered you.
