    Understanding how front page, create ad page etc are put together

    Hwody,

    i wish i had sorted this out myself but am totally confused and need some help understanding how some pages are put together so that i can modify them as efficiently as possible. For example:

    1) the Front page. If i look at the template for my front page I have:

    [classipress_typed_elements text....]
    (some custom text)
    [classipress_searchbar]
    [classipress_listings_map]

    ... and then THATS IT! The rest of content seems to be only allowed via the widgets! If I ADD content below the [classipress_listing_map] in the template it just doesnt show on front end, which i find puzzling. So is that template somehow structured to only show those things within the template, plus what is included via widgets? Can i change/override that somehow so can include sections directly in the page template that maybe arent ideal to do via widget?

    2) the Create Listing page. I have found that the text blurb instructions is defined in classipress - settings - messages. ANYTHING that i add into the page template for create listing does NOT display on the front end! So i am not able to add anything else, or ideally add shortcodes from other plugins into the create listing process flow.....

    i am sure there are other pages that i will run into this wall on but if i can understand how classipress puts these two pages together, and where or how i can access and modify what info is displayed/included i will be off to a great start. Thanks in advance for any tips!
