Themes are not being installed cleanly (look nothing like the preview and are keeping aspects of the default theme given to me by wordpress). How can I wipe my website to have a clean slate so I can use themes correctly?
Hi there, all the new Block Editor ready themes have a static front page as homepage and that front page carries over to any new theme you activate. If you want to edit that content, you need to edit the static page in your Page dashboard.
To change to the Posts page displaying as your homepage open the Customizer and in homepage settings tick the box that says “You homepage displays – your latest posts” and then click the Publish button to make it go live on your site.
If that didn’t answer your question or you need help with something else related to this, come back to us here in this forum thread.
