Modifying Index Page
I wanna customize the index page but the way the templates are layed out, it would require me majorly editing the categories.tmpl file. Obviously, I don't wanna do that because it I don't wanna change it for all the other pages that use categories.tmpl
The other way I thought of doing this is just editing the index.php file directly and remove the include of the categories.tmpl and put my stuff there in palce.
Is there another way that is "recommended" before I break stuff?
