We are currently trying to make our front page live. Previously we have a gif as our 'index.html' that works as a holding page on our FTP.
I made our page '12b.co.uk/home' the 'Front Page' by editing the reading settings using theme 'Twothousand Seventeen' however once I did that nothing was showing up on '12b.co.uk' even though it had been set as the front page.
Hoping you might have some advice – we have tried editing the 'index.html' in our FTP to 'index_.html' (and therefore unreadable) however it was still not working. We have resorted to keeping the holding page live at the moment.
