I have Created a Dynamic Layout and set up a page and assigned it. Want this page to be the index page, however it now keeps picking the page name/extension and reverts back to the page you had set up earlier as the homepage.
The avia_get_frontpage_template(); in header.php checks for a custom template and applies this where necessary (i.e. where you’ve set a custom page template).
Can you double check that the frontpage is set correctly in the theme options page, and that your Reading settings (WP Admin > Settings > Reading) are set to Your Latest Posts rather than a static frontpage this is the only obvious reason I can think of that would change the intended functionality of the homepage.
