I'm building a Wordpress site with /blog/ as the posts page, with ACF and other options on the page. Client wants to launch the blog part of the site on their current non-wordpress site as a temporary basis until the rest of the site is built. I thought it would be relatively easy...
First, upload the Wordpress install to /blog on the live site (that part worked great)
Then make the /blog page the front page via Settings -> Reading... and that didn't work at all. Homepage and Posts page can't both be "Blog", setting homepage to "Latest posts" removes the ability to edit the ACF fields and other issues. I spent a few hours trying to come up with some redirect to just show /blog/ as the front page of the Wordpress install, but nothing I tried worked.
It feels like it should be easy to do, but I'm at a loss.
