Beginner problem. I am using Bartik theme on drivingreform.com. I do not want a summary. I want the main page to display in full without the summary page. How can I do that?

Also, if I do have the summary displayed, I would like to add more material, including image and text, below the summary.

I would appreciate your help.

By default the front page shows a summary of all posts that have the "Promoted to front page" checkbox enabled. If you want to have a different front page, you can enter the path of the page you want at admin/config/system/site-information.

For example you could use "node/1" as your front page, then the entire article would be on the front page.

If you want something completely different, the simplest way would be to create a new node/page and use its path (which will probably be node/4 if you don't choose a custom one) for the front page.

If you just want to add images and text to your current front page, you could add a block (or several blocks) at admin/structure/block/add, fill them with the content you want and place it/them in the content region at admin/structure/block.

This is a good explanation.
If you want more than a single node as a frontpage I would like to mention the views module, where you can suit your needs very specifically.
For example, if you want to, you can create a page of only the images of all your published nodes within the last month.

I would like to add that using views can be experianced as very complicated if you just started using Drupal.
