If you do this, whatever page you want to show up on the front will always
have to have the same name or id. This might not be the best solution
because if your user wants to change the page that goes on the front,
they'll have to edit your template.
The way I usually go about this is to create something like homepage.php (so
that it's not confused with the functionality of home.php) and put the
"template name" comment at the top so I can specify it as a template for
Then whatever page I want to show up at the front, I set as the "home" page
in the settings (show a static page rather than latest posts), and I specify
my homepage.php template as the template to use for that page.
When the template loads, whatever page it's supposed to display has already
You could almost do this without the template thing by using home.php but
home.php is only used on the front page if you have your settings show
