I'm trying to help someone troublesheet a custom theme they made. The blog is set to display posts on the homepage, but the homepage should be custom from the rest of the site. The theme has a home.php set up with the customization.
When we change to the theme, home.php isn't loaded. I printed a debug_backtrace() and see that it's actually calling page.php instead of home.php. According to the template hierarchy, page.php should be being called since I've not set a static page as the homepage.
What else can I check to see why it's calling page.php instead of home.php?
