If you want to display a custom page for your blog this one method

Lets assume it's an "About" page.

1: Open the index.main.php for your skin and find


        // -------------- MAIN CONTENT TEMPLATE INCLUDED HERE (Based on $disp) --------------
                'disp_posts'  => '',        // We already handled this case above
                'disp_single' => '',        // We already handled this case above
                'disp_page'   => '',        // We already handled this case above
              'disp_about'     => '_about.disp.php',
                ) );
        // Note: you can customize any of the sub templates included here by
        // copying the matching php file into your skin directory.
        // ------------------------- END OF MAIN CONTENT TEMPLATE ---------------------------

Simply add


'disp_about'     => '_about.disp.php',
to the list as shown above.

2: Now build a .php page in your favourite editor...


   //Check page isn't being accessed directly
   if( !defined('EVO_MAIN_INIT') ) die'Please, do not access this page directly.' );
    //Show About page
<h2 class="bTitle"><?php echo T_('About Me'?></h2>
<div class="bPost"><div class="bText">
<p>Yadda yadda yadda<br />
Yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda</p><p>etc etc</p>

3: Save this page as _about.disp.php

4:Load the index.main.php and the _about.disp.php into your skins/yourskin folder

5 Load
and you should have your custom About Page.

Thanks John! Added to my "watched topics" list because I need this to restore some pages I lost from the 1.10.3 days.
