I just created a static homepage for my site - just a splash page. I'm using a different template for this page which is basically the same as the default (index.php) template. For some reason I can't seem to get the new template/page to display the page content (the content displays fine if I use the default index.php template).
I'm requesting the content in a very basic way using the_content() exactly as it was in the index.php template - but it shows nothing when I designate my new template for a page.
I read something somewhere about needing a loop to use the_content(), but there doesn't seem to be a loop in the index.php template anywhere - it also just uses a simple the_content() request. Is there something happening differently with the index.php template?
Where did I go wrong???
