I have a Javascript scrolling marquee that I need to have on the home page of my GeekLog site. I can see that putting this code in the header.thtml page would accomplish it, but would put it on EVERY page. Ideally, this would sit in the top of the center column, above the featured story, and would ONLY appear on the home page. What would be the best place to hack the homepage code to make this happen?

You shouldn't have to do any hacking. Make a new static page, and set it to appear at the top of the page and only on the homepage.

That should do it.

Ah, I should have clarified my current homepage setup. Confused

I have it set at this time with a static page that describes the dog training club, what they do, and where to find it. This is designated as a "centerblock", "bottom of page", and "home page only". It displays the featured story at the top, and somewhere (I can't remember where I set it) I _believe_ it is set to display only one story on this page.

This scrolling marquee I would like to add should appear ABOVE the "featured story", which is above the static page.

I still don't see why you can't add another static page and place it at the top of the home page. That will go above the featured story.

Well, I'll be. I didn't know that more than one static page was possible. Thanks!
