    I wanted to add an additional body section to my website http://www.pikestrike.com

    I want to add a "featured photo" section and a "whats new" section and one more (so three column format just like the regular body, around the same size also) above the main body that has the featured articles and latest articles.

    Building the website is a hobby so keep it simple :)

    Thanks for the help!

    If these sections can be created in Widgets then you could use the Widgets on Pages plugin to show these on your homepage.

    It's a great plugin btw! It works well on every page but my home, because you can't just edit the homepage the traditional way, you have to insert code directly into the html with this theme.

    The plugin is installed. You don't know by any change how I can insert the shortcode into the homepage php file so it's above my main content do you?

    If you want to use this in the PHP then you want to use it via the template_tags instead of the shortcode. See step (5) on the plugin's installation page.

    Ah I see the code, but where on my index.php homepage do I add the code? Anywhere?

    After having a quick looks at the theme you'd want to put it after the

    <div id="column-content">

    This would want to go in the tpl_home.php I think
