For various reasons I'd like to have the Home on my site menu go to /home (and the About go to /about and so on.) Creating /home and the sections that go into it which get managed as child pages - for editing/organization reasons - isn't the problem. The problem is that people visit

Hello to all, I'm still trying to get my head around designing a website with Radiant in mind. The biggest problem for me seems to be figuring out how to write the layout html so that Radiant knows where the content will go. For instance, with a multi-column layout how do you determine where
