I'm trying to create a landing page with the minimum pro child theme. But I can't find the settings to activate the landing page template. I must be missing something because the theme comes with different page templates. Where can I find the settings?
Thanks in advance.February 13, 2014 at 4:44 pm #90182magnify28Participant
Create a page and then in the sidebar, choose the landing page template.

Shouldn't that be on the right of the content area underneath the publish box? Because it's not there.March 4, 2014 at 12:18 pm #93399mindyiMember
petervdeynde - yes, it should be there. I just chose that option in mine Did you find it?March 5, 2014 at 7:47 am #93510March 5, 2014 at 8:00 am #93513
Click Screen Options at the top right corner. Make sure the "Page Attributes" box is checked so it's visible. If you then select the drop down and the Landing Page is not presented there - use FTP or File Manager on your host and review the templates found under /wp-content/themes/minimum to make sure it's there.

@anitac - Thanks for your reply. There is no "page attributes" box to check anywhere. It's just "Theme SEO Settings", "Layout Settings", "Scripts", "Comments" and "Screen Layout".
I checked the folder you mentioned with FTP, there is a page_landing.php file there, but I don't know if that's what you mean.March 5, 2014 at 9:22 am #93526
Sounds to me like you've selected to add a New Post and not a New Page. Please go to Pages and select Add New.

@anitac - I did what you said but without effect, there wasn't a page attributes box with landing page template to be seen. Now I've reinstalled WordPress, Genesis and the minimum Pro child theme and now the page attributes box was there when I added a new page. So I chose the landing page option but it's still not what I had hoped for.
When I check the minimum pro demo theme and check out the landing page template, this is what I see: http://my.studiopress.com/themes/minimum/#demo-full
It's a clean landing page, no header or footer or anything, just a clean page with copy. This is what I want.
But when I ad a new page on my site and choose the landing page template, this is what I get: http://skinnyfat2fit.com/
As you can see I still have the normal look of the minimum pro child theme, with the site title in the header and the grey header banner thing. So what am I forgetting here?
I've created the new page, chose landing page under page attributes, and in general settings - reading - I've checked the "show static page" box.
Why am i not getting the landing page on my front page?
Thanks in advance for helping me out here.March 15, 2014 at 11:01 am #95038
Send me an email on my website. I will send you instructions so I can take a look remotely.

Ok I've found the solution for this. The theme has a custom home page layout that conflicts with setting your landing page as the home page. You just have to rename frontpage.php to something else, like frontpage-old.php (or delete the file from the server).
@anitac Thank you very much anyway for taking the time to help me out.
