I have a issue and was wondering if there is a work around for this issue I cam accross.
I created a Home page and Press Room page as im using WP more like a CMS,
Reading Settings > A Static page
Front page: Home
Post page: Press Room
This works fine when using the default Template, however for the Home page I created a new template for a specific layout and design, however and selected this in the Home page Template settings.
The issue that is happening is that the Press Room page is also now using this template too, eventhough the Template for that page is still default.
I am able to dulicate this on a test new install.
Why are these pages link in the Front page display settings?
