It would be great if there was an Object for the home page that I could just add text to.
Display Set Up > Home Page > Layouts > Drag and drop the column layout you wanted and save it. You can add anything including text with this option, right? If it is for the sidebar, use text widget.
Yep, Binesh has got you covered. It was a bit unclear to me at first too.
For my setup, I added a 1 column layout, and I’m currently testing using shortcodes from various plugins. It really does give you a ton of options for content there.
also use the ideas baord in future please;
