I need some assistance here with more of a best practice question regarding the omega theme. With other themes I would normally have a page--front.tpl.php file which would control the layout of the front page and all other pages would just fallback to the regular page.tpl.php. variables in these pages would essentially be regions that were just printed out like "print render($page['sidebar'])"
In omega the difference is that 'sections' are printed out instead:
How does one create a different layout for the front page in Omega considering that 'sections' are what are printed in the default page.tpl.php. And the layout is intended to be controlled in the them settings administration. I can easily print bits and pieces from the $page array i.e "print render($page['content']['some_zone']['some_region')" and create a different layout but I'm looking for the intended (best) way of doing this in Omega.
Please and thank you!
