I am developing a subtheme of a Zen-based subtheme. I have created a page--front.tpl.php template but it isn't being recognized. All I see is the page.tpl.php template being used for the front page.
I have cleared the cache multiple times, looked for any other page--front.tpl.php files in the subtheme I am basing mine off of (there are none). I have restarted apache to make sure nothing is being cached, so I am at a loss as to why this is not working. I am using Drupal 7 on a linux server.
Any ideas as to what may be causing this issue? I have googled similar problems but most had to do with clearing the cache (which I have already done).
Using Theme developer, it shows that page--front.tpl.php is not a canditate template to use. In fact it doesn't show any candidate templates that could be used while on the front page of the site.
