My theme uses front-page.php. That is currently my front page.
I want the main website URL to go to a new custom page, and I want the old front-page.php to be functional.
I've tried changing Reading -> Static Page to be the new front page, but it's not overriding my settings.
Why? I see a million articles on setting the reading section, and I understand I could change the default wordpress page hierarchy, but there should be an easier way?
I see this, but it's not exactly the same: Static Front Page problem
Thank you anyone who is so kind.
