Re: adding content to the 1.2 default theme homepage
Assuming you’ve elected to have site activity shown on your home page, you want to add content to bp-default>activity>index.php. Not home.php. The neat thing is that you can add content that displays to non-logged-in users that is different than that displayed to logged-in users.
You can see it in action on my site here: http://rspace.org
