Hy guys! I've stumbled into this problem.... I am trying to insert a small image in a homepage template I did, but it just doesn't seem to show...

First thing I tried was to insert it inside the custom homepage.php file (copy of index.php with some little modifications), but I couldn't get it to show (I tried with img src and almost all other options I could find reading documentation).
I also realised that I could include it inside the loop (although I'd rather not).I went to ATO -> Style and edit center column -> Content inside loop and tried to insert it there. Still nothing. Anyone can give me an idea what am I doing wrong? Or what/where to search for more information?

Thank you!

I am running WP on a localhost trying to play arround and learn so the page it's not online.

What vesrion of Atahualpa, WP and PHP?
where are you trying to put the image?
Do you want it as a background. part of each post??
is this homepage going to be static or have posts on it?

I have Atahualpa 3.4.3 installed on WP 2.8.4 currently installed on localhost.
I want to insert the image several times (as logo/bullet in a list) on my homepage. The homepage is static, but will also show the last post.
What I did so far was to copy index.php into homepage.php which I applied as template for my static Home page. I managed to tweak this template so that it shows me the last post, and under this Loop I want to show a list with my categories (with this logo/bullet in front).
I don't know so much programming, and the smallest thing I do is only after I spend hours on documentation.
Now I would have a few questions:
For what I want to do with that list logo/bullet, is it better to use the custom page template, the options from ATO -> Center Column or one of those bfa_ata_idunnowhat files (btw, how do they work? I didn't figure them out yet.)?
Also, following Flynn's tutorial in changing the small bars in front of widget item I couldn't get the image to show.
So I am thinking it might be some trick I do/don't do wrong/right. Have any idea?
Sorry for disturbing,
Rere.

so let me get this straight, you want your home page to show the latest posts and then under it, some categories - is this right?

If so, why not just add a new widget to the end of ATO->Style & edit CENTER COLUMN->Content BELOW the LOOP with a category widget? The home page defaults to your posts anyway. This way you don't have to worry about carrying the code forward for each release.

Yeah, that would be an option to, but not quite what I would want to do. In the attachment you have more or less the idea of how I wanted this site to look...
But I am afraid I lack the proper skills to transform it from that picture into a website itself. If you have any hints, they are mostly welcome.

The closest I can think of is create tables with the layout you want in HTML and paste them into a blank page. Then insert widgets, photos or text into the tables.

Works for me but I haven't found how to control table colors or why they have colors

Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
I've made several custom post templates for columnists who want their photo and brief bio to show at the bottom of their posts. Like this: http://www.larchmontgazette.com/care...or-introverts/

When creating this kind of post, I get the template from the dropdown list of templates. I use the Custom Post Template plugin to display that list. Is this what you mean? I can paste in the template code if you like.

I turned off Hover effects ... but I was afraid it would do the same for the menu. It didn't

I am starting to get a bit hold of all the wonders that wordpress seems to keep... thanks for the suggestions. when I have little knowledge, everything is helpful (even if it doesn't spare the time to try it)...

here is a start on how you can get what you want, there is still some styling that needs to be done. Save this as your homepage.php - AFTER SAVING YOUR ORIGINAL
HTML Code:
<?php
/*
Template Name: homepage template
*/
 ?>
<?php // Do not delete these lines ?>

<?php 	/* get all options: */
include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/functions/bfa_get_options.php');
get_header();

#global $bfa_ata;
// You can start editing below:
?>

<?php 
# ================================================ 
?>
<table  cellspacing="40"  border="0" width="100%">
	<tr>
		<td id="middle">
			<h3 style="text-align: left; color: #797C00;">Latest from Itoculo</h3>			<img  src="http://www.cashewcenter.com/wp-content/gallery/farmers-club/thumbs/thumbs_Farmers Club14.jpg" width="215" height="161" />
			
		</td>
		<td id="middle">
			<h4>Welcome</h4>
				The Center in Itoculo strives towards better conditions for people in rural areas, dealing with different intervention from agricultural production, farmers training, agro-processing/agribusiness, improving the situation in water & sanitation, organizing communities for diseases prevention and promoting preschools where the young generation is in focus
		</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td id="middle">
		<h3>Latest From Itoculo</h3>
			 <?php echo wp_list_categories('depth=1&title_li='); ?>

		</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td id="middle">
			<h2>Read our Blog</h2>
				<ul>
		<?php $catposts = get_posts('numberposts=5');
			foreach($catposts as $post) : ?>
			   <li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
 		  <?php endforeach; ?>
				</ul>			
		</td>
		<td id="middle">
			Visit out gallery
			<img  src="http://www.cashewcenter.com/wp-content/gallery/green-action/thumbs/thumbs_Green Action17.jpg" width="215" height="161" />	
		</td>
	</tr>
</table> 
<?php 
# ================================================ 
?>

<?php /* This outputs the "Not Found" content, if neither posts, pages nor attachments are available for the requested page.
This can be edited at Atahualpa Theme Options -> Style & edit the Center column */
#bfa_center_content($bfa_ata['content_not_found']); ?>

<?php bfa_center_content($bfa_ata['center_content_bottom']); ?>

<?php get_footer(); ?>

Thanks a lot! I have already started playing with the theme on my on (even though it's extremely "painful"). the custom homepage I created looks more or less the same as what I designed and the code I used is similar to what you recommended. But it was only after hours and hours of documentation I could do it... and now I am still learning.. again, thank you very much!
