I have tried changing the template of the attached page and changing which page is attached as the home page, no effect for either. The front page remains the same. I am at my wits end with this one!!

  • what's a attached page? Jan 12, 2011 at 16:52
  • It is not a community term. I simply mean the page assigned to being the front page, as I explain later in the same sentence. I am unaware of another term.

What is your setup for front page in Settings > Reading ?

Do you have front-page.php template in your theme? It will pretty much override anything, no matter what you choose in settings.

  • BTW, the front-page.php was the problem ;)

ok, the question is from 9 years ago but the answer is still valid:

function custom_template () {
     return locate_template ('page_custom.php', false);
add_filter ('frontpage_template', 'custom_template');
