I inherited a site where a specific content type was created to be solely used to create the front page of the site. The content type is mt_homepage and is named 'Site Home Page'. The description is 'a homepage for the site'. When you go to 'create content', 'Site Home Page' is one of the options. Also, when I go to edit the home page I notice that the box that says 'promote to front page' is checked.
My question is simple. But since I am fairly new to Drupal it isn't obvious to me. Can I create new content using this same content type, but not 'promote to front page' without effecting my current home page? I would like to duplicate the look and content of the home page on a secondary page, but leave the home page as it is... The site's home page.
