Hey all,

I have 2 themes: 1)homepage &, 2)internal.

For the life of me I cannot figure out how to set the homepage theme/page to be the index page. That is, when I click on the 'home' link in the nav bar, how do I get the site to load the homepage theme/page?

Anyhelp on this would be much appriciated.

Cheers in advance.

Thanks for your help.

Not to be a nuisance , but I don't follow how itworks.

I now have 2 template files, one for the homepage (page-node.tpl.php) and one for the internal page (page.tpl.php).

Now however, every page with content falls back to the homepage template, the pages without content use the internal template.

Is there a way to tell Drupal to only use the homepage template for the homepage and ther internal for the rest?

Cheers once again for your help.

ok, you want home page to look different, create a node via Create Content (for example it is node/45), than create a template, it looks like page-node-45.tpl.php and place it in your theme folder, change front page to node/45 here -> admin/settings/site-information, you can customize node/45(page-node-45.tpl.php) as much as you like, i guess it should solve your problem
