Changing your Drupal 7 frontpage
By default your Drupal 7 homepage will display your latest articles, which is referred to as a content feed. If you have a specific page you'd like to set as your frontpage, regardless of its content type (such as a basic page or article), you can do so in Drupal 7.
How to set the Default front page in Drupal 7:
- Log into your Drupal 7 dashboard
- In the top menu, click Configuration
- Under System click Site Information
- Under FRONT PAGE, adjust the Default front page setting.
Be sure to pay attention to the following note if you want to disable this specific front page:
Optionally, specify a relative URL to display as the front page. Leave blank to display the default content feed.
- Click the Save Configuration button at the bottom of the page to save these settings.

Hello hash, and thanks for your comment.
After you made your edits to the page--front.tpl.php file, did you make sure to clear the Drupal cache? It seems like this is a common solution found on the Drupal forums for this problem.
Also if you're using Drupal 6 it should be page-front.tpl.php instead.
If you're still having any issues please let us know a bit more specifically about what you're trying to change that isn't showing up.
