#37472 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Static page settings when front page is either not selected or deleted

The function is_front_page() returns false on the websites homepage if the following scenarios:

  1. A user assigns a static homepage, however later (for whatever reason) deletes the page from the pages section. Any code dependent on is_front_page() will no longer display on the homepage.
  1. A user selects the option "A static page" under Settings -> Reading, however doesn't assign a front page.

With regards to point 2 above, it may be helpful to notify the user that if they are choosing to use the static page setting then a front page should be assigned.

I think this may be fixed as I could not replicate the issue. is_front_page() returned true regardless.
