I have some pages on my website if I select a custom post (continents) as the homepage in Settings -> Reading, everything looks fine. If I add another page as the front page, I get and empty page (except for the header and footer) does anyone have any ideas how this can be fixed?


  • Maybe sounds funny but do you have a content inside page you choose as homepage at settings page? Commented Oct 23, 2016 at 1:07

You need to check in you theme parent folder templates called front-page.php, home.php and index.php. Wordpress in exactly this order is searching for files to use for your homepage. It seems that your template file is broken or has nothing between get_header() and get_footer()
