I am trying to create a simple main page where I have rss/facebook feeds on the left, facebook twitter links on the right, and nothing underneath. Unfortunately, if you don't specific a main page, Drupal displays this banner "Welcome to...". If you do add a basic page for the main page, then you get crap at the bottom.
Here is my current page: www.isip.piconepress.com
I do not want a basic page to appear below the aggregator /social media links.
My question is this: How do I make a main page without getting the Welcome message automatically inserted?
It is not clear to me if I make a basic page for the main page, how I insert objects like the aggregator, onto that page without writing html code. Page layout should be easier than this.
BTW: I was able to make this work on v7.14, but when I upgraded to v7.15, it started putting the welcome message in. Not good...
