    This is the single most complained about issue from my client(s). The blog aggregate on the Home page is their main source of presenting/announcing new site content. They format their blog posts to make them look good with graphics, etc for the two column layout. So the end-users are not seeing the proper layout of their content because 90%+ of the time they are linking from the blog aggregate on Home page to the blog entries.

    If there are indeed "benefits" behind the scenes in Exponent for this behavior it should at least be configurable to allow the linked pages to be displayed using their specified page theme layouts.
