We are looking for a theme with a standard (nonwidgetized) home page. The person who the site is for has listed these 3 themes but I think they're all widgetized:

http://themeforest.net/item/acoustic-powerful-elegant-wordpress-theme/608369?WT.ac=search_thumb&WT.seg_1=search_thumb&WT.z_author=pexeto

http://themeforest.net/item/anthology-premium-elegant-wordpress-theme/131771

http://themeforest.net/item/horizon-premium-wordpress-theme/1932283?WT.ac=search_thumb&WT.seg_1=search_thumb&WT.z_author=ThemeMakers

We bought this theme:

http://themeforest.net/item/dandelion-powerful-elegant-wordpress-theme/136628

but it had a widgetized home page and we didn't see how to work the widget area - there was just a place for sidebar and footer.

Do you know of a simple nice theme that is similar to the above 4 that we could purchase for around $35 or less that would be simpler to create a home page with?

Or how to operate the Dandelion theme?

Our site is heartofdharma(dot)org

Thank You

I think all three of those are built the same way but the last one (Horizon) does have a screencast showing you how to use a page as the home page via a custom page type that is pre-defined:

I would check the Dandelion theme you already have to see if it has a similar custom page type and maybe that's the trick?

The person went with a website tonight site builder. They weren't technical and were confused by the whole thing.

Gah! I wish I could have been more helpful.  No one deserves the Website Tonight treatment.
