I got everything up running and child theme seems fine. I have set a page as static fromtpage, but nothing shows up on the frontpage on the site. Again if I add a widget, that shows up.
Here is what I have done.
Created a child theme with the plug in.
Created a file named front-page.php in the new child theme folder.
Pasted the code you posted into the new file
Made sure the theme is set to use a static frontpage..
Site is running fine and changes made to child theme works fine – just not the frontpage..
Maybe I need to read more op on child themes. I found some post about it and what I got from it was that I needed to make a copy of the theme and then modify it. In style.css I renamed the theme so I could see I was activating the right one in the wp admin.
I deleted the content of the existing front-page.php and pasted the code in yo gave me here. It makes no difference at all. Maybe im doing something wrong.
If its just a small thing, please share it or else if you could point me to some guide on how to make a child-theme to work…
