Only the "Hello World" post is being exported

By Matt @burton2019-10-15 23:37:51.201Z

I'm attempting to export a newly created site to static using wp2static. I plan to build this site on top of Elementor's Canvas theme (ie, absolutely no theme, just a blank page). At the moment, the site has a total of one post (the default "Hello World" post) and three published pages. The crawl preview includes the three pages, but the finished product (exported to a locally hosted zip file) includes only the Hello World post (which it treats like the home page). If I change the home page in Settings > Reading to one of the three published pages, wp2static exports an index.html file that displays a blank page styled in the manner of the default theme in Appearance > Themes, rather than the completely different content that is at the real home page.

If I add the page's URL to the exporter's include list, it still does not get exported.

Any idea what's going on here?

wp2static v6.6.6
WP v5.2.4
Elementor v2.5.2

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for your question. May I know your Detection level settings (under the Crawling tab)?

    Also could you try Delete deploy cache? Just making sure everything is clean so we can see if this is really a problem.

    This might be a crawling problem, we will try to fix it on V7.
