This is the Homepage template. It has 4 widget areas at the top of the page. The top one in a full width widget area. I’m showing an image using the text widget, this image can also be linked to any page.
Below the top widget area are 3 equally spaced widget areas. Again there are images displayed using the text widget. Any widget can be used in these widgets areas, not just images.
These 4 widget areas only show on pages that have the Homepage template applied. This template can be applied to any page, not just the homepage.
The widget areas below will display on all pages and posts.
