prior to 2.5, you could make a home.php and use that as a starting page.
Not you can choose a page from the setting.
My problem is, that my whole site has two completly different styles. From template to stylesheet. One for the starting-page and the other one form the rest.
Making a simple page-template (if that is even possible for 2.5) does not help me much, because the header.php, footer.php and stylesheet is different. I used to place the whole loop into home.php, which worked just fine. Now I don't know what to do. Of course the home.php is now ignored and I am a bit lost.
Can anybody help me out?
