WordPress 2.8.4 Atahualpa 3.4.4
[SOLVED] Permanent text area in center column

I want to place a short introductory paragraph above the Blog title and Post that will stay there no matter what else changes on the page. I thought of using the Sticky plugin or the Announcement feature but this isn't a post, it's just a short introduction to the site.

What's the best way of doing this?
Thanks

If you want it on every page, just stick it in ATO->Style & edit CENTER COLUMN->Content ABOVE the LOOP

Sorry, I have absolutely no clue what this means or what to do with this. Can you be more specific and/or give me an example. I'm very new at this.

Is this code I have to type into the index.php? If so where? Does the paragraph text I want to use come after it, or before it, or somewhere in the middle. Presumably the text I want to appear will be surrounded by the <p> tags. I'm completely at sea here.

Also, I want this text to appear only on the main blog page, the home page, but if it's going to be really really complicated to do then I can live with it on every page.

In the Wordpress Dashboard go to
Appearances->
Atahualpa Theme Options (ATO)->
Style & edit CENTER COLUMN->
Content ABOVE the LOOP
and add what you want using HTML to format it. If you only want it on the home page, surround it with a php if for example
HTML Code:
<?php if ( is_front_page() ) { 
echo '<h2> well this will be on the front page</h2>'; } ?>
