Static blocks won't render correctly

Static blocks won't render correctly

I have installed Magento 2.1 CE and the Beamstore theme. I haven't done or installed anything else. No modules or anything. When I add content to the homepage it doesn't render the HTML, it looks like this:


I created a new block called beamstore-home-page and then inserted that as a widget. The block simply has the code:


<div style="color: red;">hello</div>

for testing purposes.


I did run the compile code 'php magento setup:di:compile' but that didn't help (there were no errors)... I cleared cache. Am I missing something?


I tried adding html right in the homepage content via the editor and also tried adding a block with a widget/layout and neither work.

Why will my theme not render HTML correctly?
