Tried #1 it didn’t work. There’s no where to add/edit home page widgets.
As for #2, I don’t want to hide the messaging, I need the messaging there. Like I said I want to move it as indicated in the diagram. How do I reposition the messaging?
#3, that’s fine I’ll adjust, I’d just like to know why/how that grey bar suddenly appeared. To me that seems like an issue with the theme slider development as it wasn’t there before. Saying just hire a developer doesn’t make sense – why/when did this appear and why can’t you correct the error in your own theme? This bar appears regardless of the picture that I use as the header. I am always happy to slightly resize the header image if I need to remove that bar but there needs to be a better answer.
