wordpress home page question

Hi Experts,

I'd like a banner to appear only on the page that is set as the home page.  It looks like I can add a line to the page.php file. I have no idea what the correct syntax is.... how do I test for the homepage?

ie:
<?php if (pageisdefault/homepage) : ?>
  <div id="coolHomePageBanner><img src="" /></div>

<?php endif; ?>

Thanks,

HNM

I think you're trying for something like this:
<?php if(is_home() && $post==$posts[0] && !is_paged()) { ?>
  <div id="coolHomePageBanner"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/something.jpg" /></div>
<?php } ?>

Thanks jeremyhared74,

It doesn't seem to work.  I've attached the code from page.php... maybe you can spot the problem?

thanks

<?php get_header(); ?>

<div id="main">

	<div id="content">
							
		<div id="contentArticleBody">
		
			<?php if(is_home() && $post==$posts[0] && !is_paged()) { ?>
			
  				<div id="contentTopBanner"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/contentTopBanner.jpg" alt="adf" title="asdfasdf"></div><!-- #contentTopBanner -->

			<?php } ?>
			
			<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
		
				<div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">

					<h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
			
					<?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/inc/meta.php' ); ?>
			
					<div class="entry">

						<?php the_content(); ?>
			
						<?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => 'Pages: ', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>
			
					</div>

					<?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '<p>', '</p>'); ?>

				</div>
	
			<?php // comments_template(); ?>

			<?php endwhile; endif; ?>
	
		</div><!-- contentArticleBody -->
										
		<div id="contentRightColumn">

OK, this will work.

Add this just before <?php wp_head(); ?>, in the header.php file:
<?php if (is_home()) { ?>
<div id="contentTopBanner">
  <img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/wrapper_bg.jpg" width="920" alt="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> header image" />
</div><!-- #contentTopBanner -->
<?php } ?>

You'll need to change it to you image. You had an error on the closing image tag on your code. I'm not sure if that was it or not.

If you need to add it somewhere else, if you can't get the image to go where you want using CSS, you'll need to add a custom page template and assign a page that will be your home page to that template in the page editor. Next you'll need to go to Settings>Reading> Front Page Displays.... and choose your page which you assigned to the custom template.

You won't actually need to add a custom template, just be sure the page you assign as the home page actually uses the page template that you are adding the code to. You should be able to add it to the header as I suggested without any problems though. If not let me know and I'll try to help you out.
