My question is: Are there naming conventions I should be aware of?

I ask this because I just ran in some trouble because I - and I tested it - forgot to name one my subtheme files with a capital P (as in versus Homepage.php). This resulted in the following error - but the error is now resolved:

[Warning] Unknown class passed as parameter
GET /s/dev/build

Line 420 in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/s/sapphire/core/Object.php

This was not very helpful, but ok. I first thought it had to do with the fact that I used Homepage for my class, or a field named about, antother named info.

It is case sensitive, so if your file name is Homepage, the class it contains must also be Homepage.
