    Perhaps I am misunderstanding how WordPress works. If so, then there are some severe design issues with the editor…
    My issue is that I am editing a static page (the Home page), and attempting to add static content.
    When previewing the page, the static content is no where to be seen. A view source shows that it was embedded in the <meta /> description tag!
    How can I add static content to this page?

    The blog I need help with is officeaccord.com.

    Hi,

    Ampersand’s homepage template doesn’t display text you write in the editor. It’s designed as a placeholder that pulls in all the other custom things you see on your site and our demo.

    I’m curious about the meta description thing though. Can you link me to an example of the content being in the meta description tag?

    Certainly. Take a look at our home page at http://www.officeaccord.com. If you do a view source and locate the meta tag for the description, you will see the value “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet” in the content attribute. This is what I typed into the editor to see the results.

    How would I add my own content to the home page?

    I see. That must be something wordpress.com is adding automatically to the header. Ampersand doesn’t do that.

    To your question about adding content to the homepage template, that’s not currently possible. If we were to add that functionality to the theme, it might start showing text on people’s sites unexpectedly. We’d have to add a new template specifically for that I think. Then there’s the question of where exactly it would be displayed, with a lot of design things to consider.

    We’ll discuss this and see if it’s something we can practically do.
