Front page

Hi, I'm checking Commerce Kickstart Theme 7.x-2.0-rc2 with clean instaled Comerce kickstart (no demo version). All works fine but i'm stucked on "simply" problem.

I would like to see content of Article ex. "About" ; "Contact" on a front page. I change change content type "promote on front page" to enable.

My "Main page content" block is in a "Content" position.

But i see nothing.

When i move "Main page content" to other positon than "Content" ex "Branding" i see what i want.

How to fix this problem? I went trought several css and js file but till now didn't found any thing what hellp me.

So i play a bit with default setting of front page in "site information" and :

-first time i looked there i saw defalut " mysite/node " than i click save and i saw green box "The configuration options have been saved" and now i don't have " mysite/node " but "mysite/"
- then i tried to save with other options like : about node/1 and so on and i got one article as front page.

How ever each time i want to save as "node" it is empty and at the and i don't get "promote on front page" effect

Drupal provide a lot of power to modify the default front page. That's the one of them. You can also have panes overriding your front page, context modifying the content, and so on. But I really believe that, in your case, there's something in the page-front.tpl.php file (from your theme).

I'm not sure, but perharps...

I also thought that, and i found what it is:
1) www.mysite/profiles/commerce_kickstart/themes/commerce_kickstart_theme/p...
2) www.mysite/profiles/commerce_kickstart/themes/omega_kickstarte/preproces...

Those two files make difference. So for all who have the same problem - you can or modify those two files for your needs or change "preprocess" folders to other name ex. " preprocess_need_to_be_changed" - BOTH OF THEM
