I could have agreed previously when they didn’t have the option to make a post your homepage. That required some minor fiddling with the hbs-files such that the default ‘Recent posts’-homepage could be bypassed. It was rather annoying, indeed!
But now that they included the option of setting a post as Homepage, that’s not necessary anymore. So what are you still using ‘coding stuffs’ for?
Wouldn’t simply renaming the option ‘Hidden’ to ‘Webpage’ help solve the confusion?
