    I just downloaded the Video Theme with the sample pages. I can not seem to find out how to edit the page connected to the main URL. When I make changes in page set up – home page I don’t know where the changes are taking place.
    Thank you in advance

    hi Gab,

    did you set your wordpress dashboard > settings > reading > front page display to “Your Latest Post” ?

    Hi Marie,

    Thanks for the reply. The settings you suggested are already in place on the WP dashboard. When I go to “visit site: from the WP admin its displays a sample or demo page but I’m not sure how to edit or select a different home page.

    if your homepage or front page display is set to static, then you cannot use the settings from Theme Options > page setup > homepage.

    Page setup > homepage settings is only displayed when you set your Front page display to “your latest Post”

    Thanks I wasn’t aware of that. But my issue still remains. Can you go to thegoldmic.com and the page that comes up is not listed in pages and I’m not sure how to edit it.

    Is that the home page? If so, how do I edit the page? Is it a “post page”?
    I apologize for the noob questions….

    no, its not a generic page.

    you can edit/change homepage objects via Theme Options > page setup > homepage.

    you mean the logo?

    you can create your own logo and upload it via Theme options > General setup > website logo
