#49504 new enhancement

"Your homepage displays" setting missing without explanation

When there are no available pages, ie. no pages exist or there are only pages marked as private, the "Your homepage displays" setting isn't showing up at all in Settings >> Reading. There's no explanation why it's not available currently.

Possible fix: provide a short piece of info on why this option isn't currently available.

Hello and welcome to WordPress Trac!

If the option is not available, I wouldn't personally display it at all.
I don't think we have any other Setting that is displaying such a message when the option is not available… but worth asking the question, indeed :-)
