    setting up a site with a child theme based on Thematic, which goes pretty well.

    I would like to use a different template for the homepage, but can't figure out how to create and add the template...

    I have found the 'page.php' which generates the pages, I can modify this and save as 'homepage.php', but then how do I use it?

    If I open a page in the WP admin, I can only choose 'default template', 'archive page' and 'links page'...

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

  2. make sure you add

    <?php /* Template Name: New Template Name
    */ ?>

    at the very top of your homepage.php file. Then you should have it as an option in the WP admin
