On my site I have configured things so that the home page will appear if the URL doesnt exist. (ie in admin/settings/error-reporting I set a replacement page for the 404 page.)
The problem is that the menu doesnt appear, so if a user lands here he cant use the site properly.
My menu is the 'primary menu' and has been placed in the left sidebar. I dont have any special setting for this block - eg no page 'includes' or 'excludes'.
To help me debug can anyone tell me if this is the expected behaviour or any suggestions for what might have gone wrong?
I'm using Drupal 6.
