I bought a theme that only displays a slider on the homepage if you use the static page configuration.
I want this slider to appear, but I do not like the possibilities that the wordpress 'page' editing gives me (pages/edit page).
Therefore I did this: I made a custom template like this:
<?php /* Template Name: Homepage
and then copied everything in there from the default template file. So now, I have a duplicate page that is displaying the slider.
Can I now start editing this custom template with html at appearance/editor to make it into a custom homepage, just like I would if I was just making a standard html-website without wordpress?
I need this.. detour, because if I edit the default template file, everything else will also change.
my question and the way I explained it shows that I am a real n00b, but I hope you understand!
