So I had some pages and posts. I imported sample data. All good so far can see the different pages, etc. I set the sample page as the front page and boom! everything's gone except the sample page.
When I go to wordpress pages I see Sample Page only, nothing in posts. The dropdown list under the BrightBox theme for Frontpage Settings still shows all the posts I had included the imported ones but nothing happens if I select one, I still only get Sample Page.
Not so cool.
