I must be doing something wrong here.
I setup my site with a static front page using front-page.php. I created a page in the admin with a title and chose the front-page.php in the template dropdown.
My title shows up fine, however the_content(); does not.
I'm not doing anything special as shown below.
<?php /* Template Name: Homepage */ ?> <?php get_header(); ?> <div class="content"> <div class="welcome_area"> <div class="welcome_area_title"><?php the_title('');?></div> <div class="welcome_area_text"> <?php the_content(); ?> </div>
Any ideas why the content won't show?
