    I am trying to create a unique homepage from the full-width template that I can control elements independently from secondary pages that also use the full-width template.

    Can someone help me do this?

    Hey,

    The way you present your content is entirely up to you, but I can help you in the right direction.

    Duplicate template_fullwidth.php and rename the new file home.php. Open up home.php and remove this code:

    /*
    Template Name: Fullwidth Page
    */

    You can now customise the page elements as you need, save and upload this file and it should replace your homepage.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So far, so good. Everything works as you have said. But now I need to know, how do I get the ‘Home’ page to show up in the ‘Page Attributes’ > ‘Templates’ drop down menu, so that I may edit it from the WordPress Admin Page edit section?

    Hey,

    If you’re using the WP editor the file should show up as the homepage template. It shouldn’t show up as a separate page template as the:

    /*
    Template Name: Fullwidth Page
    */

    code (defining the Template name in the drop down on pages) has been removed.

    To get this to show up, add:

    /*
    Template Name: Home Page
    */

    to the top of home.php (use template_fullwidth.php for an example of placement).

    Not sure what is happening here. Under the Broadscope Theme Options tab, I have the Frontpage settings set to my Home page, but for whatever reason, the Blog is displaying. How can I get my Home page to be the first page when my site is visited?

    Hey,

    What’s the site URL?
