First let me thank you for this plugin!
I too was planning to NOT have it display on the home page, and I tried the code you referred to before:
if (is_home()) remove_action('wp_footer','hd_sideoffer');
but that didn't work. It might be that I am using a genesis framework child theme - not sure if the functions.php code above is compatible or not. If you have an alternate functions snippet solution it would be appreciated.
An oh yes, the site is here http://goo.gl/J8UGB
