I'm quite new to Magento so any help is welcome.
I'm using Magento V1.9.1.
I'm having an issue loading the home page of the site. The default page is set under System > Configuration > Web > Default Pages in the admin and the page has content in the CMS -> Pages section. The home page shows the header and footer but there is no content.
I've tried creating a new test page and setting this as a default home page and this still shows a blank content area.
If I go to /index.php or /home, the page loads exactly as expected, leading me to believe it is a routing issue. Changing the default home page does change the output of the /index.php URL.
EDIT 2: I've tested the same set of files, with the same local.xml files on my local server and the home page loads correctly, which rules out the layout being defined incorrectly (I think).
EDIT: Adding screenshots as requested. I've had to obscure certain parts of the website for privacy reasons.
This is the home page of the site without the index.php path. The content should appear in the dashed area, between the header and footer.
With the index.php path, the content appears correctly.
The settings in the System > Configuration > Web > Default Pages
And the page in the CMS -> Pages section.
Any help is appreciated.
