    Hi,

    On a new project, Im using a custom template for a static home page. And I have 8 section pages using another custom template. And the rest of the pages are styled normally.

    I want to add a full-width content box above MAIN, or the first thing in MAIN. I know it can be done in several ways:

    - calling below_header
    - Page top

    But I want to use different content in all the 8 section pages, on this location. And it has to be shown above the YOAST breadcrumbs that im using. And yoast uses the below_header action.

    So is the best way to do it via

    - controlling it in the css?
    - calling below header and then controlling which content is called on each of 8 pages?
    - or is there another way?

  2. option 2 via conditional tags seems to be the better choice imo. Its either that or custom page templates.

    @tarpontech - custom page templates isn't working.

    Below header is one way that might work, but i don't know how to write a function for it.
