I've been searching for days for a theme that I can customize that has a particular element to it which has been very difficult for me to find. I want to have a text area on the main index/blog page that doesn't show up on any static pages. I want to have it set apart stylistically from the posts -- I tried some adventures in sticky post styling, but that didn't work out. Basically, it's the "Welcome to My Blog" section of this theme:
(But unfortunately, this theme malfunctions in 3.2.1 so I can't use it)
If I knew a term for what this section is called, maybe I could better search for the basic theme style I need that includes this area. Thanks so much!
