Okay, a question for all you clever people out there :)
What I'd like to achieve is having a "splash / index" page, manageable inside the CMS, that has a completely different layout to any sub-pages of the site. The sub-pages will be presented as usual.
At the moment, of course all pages are run through the global "Page.ss" template to get their containing layout. What I'd like to do is have a separate super template, eg. "Splash.ss" that is only used for the very first page of the site and does not touch "Page.ss" at all.
I figure that I need to create my own page type, eg. "Splash page" and assign it to the "Home" item, but I'm not sure how to tell Silverstripe how to use a special global template instead of passing it to the general "Page.ss" one.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance :)
