I replied to your last message, but for some reason, it's not showing up on that thread, so I'll make this thread to copy-paste my reply and keep all of our front page work in a single thread for now.
"Hmmm. Is your problem with editing the templates? At the very least, I figured out how to access the source code for the templates. On the home page, open the source editor. On the right sidebar, under the 'Templates' tab, there's a link that says 'Show list of used templates'. From there, you should be able to access the souce to each of the templates.
I can't edit them of course, but if you managed to get the template code and you can't edit it, then I'm not sure what to do. Let me know how you go, and if that doesn't work, we can probably try to build the front page from scratch."
That was the last message I posted that's somehow gotten lost. Since then, I checked back on the front page, and all of the templates seem to have disappeared. They still show up in the source code though. And the source code for each template is still normal, so I don't know why the front page is empty. If you're going to try anything new, let me know and I'll see what I can do on my end as well.
Okay, i did the first thing you suggested and I was able to edit them that way. But when I was looking at it, it seemed to like... ruin the page a little bit... I also wasn't sure what to change the video to so I left it alone, and since I was a bit worried I'd ruin other things, I didn't touch them.
I had a look at the code, and although I was expecting the individual templates to be edited, what you've done works. I mean replacing the template as its own module and building that image box from scratch.
If the other templates and boxes are causing problems, I think it would be a good idea to think about what you find most important about the front page. Then, remove the content you don't think works, and add any content you think would be needed.
My personal changes would be to make a new poll and perhaps remove the twitter module, and the featured video.
