#34842 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Simplify get_home_template() template candidates

I was wondering if this is mandatory that in the get_home_template function we have to specify home.php AND index.php as fallback as soon as we have the fallback on index.php at the end of template-loader.php ?

  • Type changed from feature request to enhancement

Apart from saving some if/else checks in template-loader.php, I don't see a reason why get_home_template() must specify index.php as a template as well. I guess it makes the whole template hierarchy more clear.

This patch changes the behavior of get_home_template() in the case where the theme has a paged.php and an index.php but no home.php.

The current behavior is to use index.php for both / and /page/2/.

With the patch, the behavior changes to using index.php for / but paged.php for /page/2/.

Oh yes I've missed this case :/.
I think it's better to leave this alone for not breaking the backcompat and template hierarchy.
