My theme (newschannel) uses an index.php as it's homepage. Please where can I add the php code without messing up my site. When I add it to the index.php, it stretches out the content area and moves the sidebars down. However, if I add it to header.php (under nav access) it works well, the only problem is it shows up on every page and post.
I want the slider to be flush with the menu, but show up only on the homepage.
