Setting up Front Page
Before setting up the Frontpage, let me tell you that Front page and Home Section are different. Home section is the the first section in the Frontpage where as Frontpage is where all your sections will be displayed. This is different from the Home Section. To set up the Frontpage, you must first create a new page with no content inside it, you can do so by navigating to Pages > Add New. You can give this page a title of “Frontpage”. Under the page attributes section, Select "Page template as Front Page Template" and Click “Publish”.
Once you have created your new page, Goto Settings->Reading. Select “A static page” and assign the “Frontpage” for “Front Page:”
If you haven’t applied these settings above, your frontpage sections will not be displayed.
