    Hi Peter,

    Big fan of Ghost, definitely excited to check out the new release. Curious though can you tell me what you mean by "custom homepages" (As mentioned in the blog post). I tried to find an example but couldn't is it just a parent directory for all the blog posts or are you trying to build more of a wordpress competitor?

    Thanks!

      Hey Brandon, There are a lot of custom publication use cases that are different from a classic stream of posts that you see on most blogs, and that’s what dynamic routing in Ghost 2.0 is addressing. With it it’s possible to control the routing of the publication to separate the content into distinct areas. A custom homepage simply defines a relationship between a route and a template (i.e. what template should be rendered for a URL) but they don't fetch any resource data (it's static). If you're interested more in the details of how it works, you can check examples in the docs or on the Ghost forum. Cheers
