I created a page I like and set it as a landing page template. When I view it, it looks great. So I publish it. When I go to "Visit Site" it doesn't display. I assumed I needed to add it to a menu in some way and redirect users to it so it comes up as the first thing a visitor sees, but I don't really see how to do it? Can someone outline the next steps?
Thanks so much for the reply. This is the first thing I tried and I am confused why it doesn't work. When I did this I noticed that the permalinks changed properly (the state home page became name_of_domain/home and the landing page became name_of_domain) but when I go to the site it still goes back to the original homepage. This behavior seems very odd, because when I look at the link in the browser it should be displaying the landing page. Any ideas?
According to the body class I see when I view source, you are using the custom page. This is the body class: page-id-145 page-template page-template-page_landing page-template-page_landing-php
It says you are using page #145 and the landing page template.
