I've done a lot of looking around and I can't find a direct answer to my question on your forums.
I created a new widget area and placed it above my posts on my main page. I used the div option, because I didn't want to fuss with more tables than necessary.
I have a couple things I'd like to do:
One: I'd like this widget area to be visible on the main page only. I may change this in the future, but I'd like to know if there's a tag I could use to make it possible.
Two (and more importantly): I'd like to align these four widgets horizontally. I'll worry about styling later, right now I simply want the page to function.

Thanks for your help!
