    Hello! I am a newbie when it comes to making websites, so I have been trying different themes out. Although when I tried this one I couldn't figure out how to use the "Front Page Template". I got this message when trying to put widgets in the first front page & second front page areas: "Appears when using the optional Front Page template with a page set as Static Front Page".

    How do I use the Front Page template?!

    Thank You! :D

    Hey,

    What you have to do is first create your front page. Lets say you create a new page called "Home". Then go into your Settings > Reading and set "front page" to "Home" and then you will have a static front page where you can use these widgets. In reading I also suggest to select the page you wish to use for blog.

    I have the same issue on this site:

    http://www.graficooro.it/

    I followed the instructions, added a text widget with 2 links in the "First Front Page Widget Area", set the page as static, used the Frontpage Template for that page...but I can't see the widget yet :(

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks

    your iframe code in the page has a broken closing tag (the > is missing);
    from the html in the browser:

    <p><code><iframe src="http://...whatever..." height="400" width="99%" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe<code></p>

    Thank you but the Gold chart still loads perfectly.

    Do you think that closing tag may stop WordPress from displaying the widget?

    Actually all I added between < code > and < code > was:

    <iframe src="http://widgets.prorealtime.com/ProRealTime_FlashXLight/itcharts.phtml?wid=2013442385&k=604974e7cc4b35d64a3997b2667a91b0" height="400" width="99%" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe
    
    without opening and closing tags.
    Thanks

    this is the closing tag - and it is missing the >

    </iframe

    should be:

    </iframe>

    OK, that works but then I had to change the opening one too :)

    Thanks!
