@Amethi, @maia_internet, @_vincent, et al. Here’s a very simple theme component that should get you by. It may not be as ideal as a built-in feature added to core, but it should accomplish what most of you are asking for.
I hoped to have a way to honor a user’s choice when it comes to mobile if it was explicitly set. It’s possible I may be able to handle that to some extent once user-side theme settings come out, but for now you will be forcing the homepage to be “latest” (or whatever you change it to) for all of your users while they are browsing mobile. Desktop will still honor your default site setting or what your users pick as their homepage.
I’ll make a proper post in #theme a little later. I’ve run out of time for now. Hope this helps!
