I am using the Structure theme and I can’t seem to figure out how to edit the “this is the home page widget area.” I cannot find that anywhere. Also, is the large space there for an image, like a header? I’m very confused.
Additionally, it keeps making one of my posts “scheduled” and not “published” no matter what I do.
Sorry, I’m tired so this should cover the last question you had.
The “this is the home…” widget space is under the “Homepage Top Right” in appearance > widgets. The text you see is just placeholder text. Add whatever widget you want to that particular “sidebar”. If you want to put a text announcement in that area, add a text widget to it.
