Layout: home not in index.html

Hi. I need to have custom index.html, and move posts index to another page like list.html.
When I have list.html like:

layout: home

it shows nothing.

not a lot to go on here, could use a link to your repo and the actual site and some more info.

I think you may be saying the paginator for listing posts on the home page is not working on the other page? I don’t use the paginator but I believe it may only work on a page named index.html.
