These changes are about the upcoming version 1.4.
Some of you have followed Options through some major changes since its release in February. I'm thinking of making one last major change.
Those of you that have tried out the Hybrid theme have seen my interest in page templates. I think page templates have been overlooked in the WordPress community.
Move the home page stuff to a separate page template.
Well, for several reasons:
* It'll allow me to more easily make several page templates, such as a Features Gallery-only template that'll pull attachment images into your gallery.
* It will allow those that want a normal blog to more easily set up a normal blog without having to learn all the ins and outs of the system.
* I can more easily set up various functions that can be better extracted to pull from anywhere, such as adding a features gallery wherever you want instead of just the home page.
* Options can be used as what many of you call a CMS with this move.
Plus, creating a page template is super easy, and you can set the "Home Template" as your home page.
