    I would like to add a text box to the home page of my forum, so that users have a brief explanation of the site’s purpose. Can someone please tell me how to do that?

    Thank you.

  • Add it to your theme’s front-page.php

    I’m not code savvy. Can you please advise the specifics of what and where within the file to add it?

    Thank you!

    Where do you want to add it relative to the current layout?

    I would like to replace the ‘Hot Tags’ section in the ‘Misty’ theme with a box in which I can enter and change custom text.

    Thanks!

    Edit a themes front-page.php.

    Replace

    <h2><?php _e('Hot Tags'); ?></h2>
    <p class="frontpageheatmap"><?php bb_tag_heat_map(); ?></p>

    with…

    <h2><?php _e('Some Text'); ?></h2>
    <p>Text text text.</p>

    what if i wanted to keep the tags and have text below?

    just add:

    <h2><?php _e(‘Some Text’); ?></h2>

    <p>Text text text.</p>

    i’m surprised there’s not a sidebar text plugin…seems to be a plugin for everything else

    <h2><?php _e('Hot Tags'); ?></h2>
    <p class="frontpageheatmap"><?php bb_tag_heat_map(); ?></p>

    add

    <h2>Text</h2>
    <p>Text text text</p>

    =

    <h2><?php _e('Hot Tags'); ?></h2>
    <p class="frontpageheatmap"><?php bb_tag_heat_map(); ?></p>

    <h2>Text</h2>
    <p>Text text text</p>
