#22131 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

front-page.php only applied to static page

I was doing a bit of template testing this morning when I noticed that template hierarchy may be broke in the latest trunk. Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a test theme with front-page.php and index.php.
  2. Ensure that Settings -> Reading -> "Enable a static front page" is unchecked.
  3. Visit

At this point, index.php is used to load the content.

  1. Check the Settings -> Reading -> "Enable a static front page" option.
  2. Visit

At this point, front-page.php is used to load the content.

I ran the same test in 3.4.2 and front-page.php was always loaded for regardless of the Settings -> Reading -> "Front page displays" setting.

In [22135]:

Set show_on_front to 'posts' when no value is set. This occurs when the show_on_front checkbox is left unchecked and then sent through options.php. fixes #22131.

The issue was that show_on_front, when options-reading.php was saved, was getting set to an empty value.
