Selecting Divi Home Page as Static

Issue Summary

I’m using LocalWP for the first time and have imported several Divi layout pages. Usually I would go to my WP dashboard --> Settings --> Reading and select my home page as static, but there is no such choice.

How to I select my home page as static when using LocalWP?

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used? 5.9.0

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used? macOS Mojave 10.14.6

    • For example: macOS Catalina or Windows 10 Professional
  • Attach the Local Log. See this Community Forum post for instructions on how to do so:

Setting the static homepage should be the same in Local as it is in other environments. I just tried this with the most recent version of Local and that setting appears to be there:

Have you tried accessing that setting from a new, plain WordPress site? Additionally, are other plugins being installed on this site that might affect how this setting is displayed?

Thank you for replying.

When I went to publish a page in LocalWP it gave me the following choices [Public], [Private] & [Password Protected]. Since the site is just being build I didn’t think the [Public] choice was appropriate so I chose the [Private] choice. I learned that the [Public] choice didn’t mean it was going live for all the world to see. When I chose the [Public] choice my issue was resolved and I was able to select a static home page.

That makes sense, thanks for replying with what the issue was along with how to fix!
