Within WordPress 4.6.1, with the TwentySixteen theme, I have 2 general questions in regards to establishing a landing page.
From within my child theme folder, where and how do we create a new page to be the new landing page of our site? This page will have a custom coded look and feel. Where in wp-admin do we tell WordPress (please select this to be the default landing page). I don't want to replace index.php, I simply want to create landing page templates.
When using TwentySixteen, I see how easy it is from wp-admin to set a "Page" to be the default landing page of the site. And I see it comes with "Default Template" and "My Custom Template". Where do we edit these two template files? I would like to create my own template file for my "Page" as well.
