I am using the Paragrams theme from the kind folks at wpshower. I have a little different front page that I would like to load with an image rotator and different layout in the for loop. I have tried all of the conditional comments, with no avail.

There are some posts on this already that didn't have a solution...

I even tried this most basic if else from the WP forum without any help. What am i missing? :(

if (is_front_page())

<div>Flash Gordon</div>

<?php } else { ?>

<div>Wins the Battle!</div>
<?php } ?>

Have you tried creating a page template? Make a copy of page.php and call it page-home.php (if your home page is an actual page in Wordpress with the name of 'Home') or if not, then create a file called front-page.php and Wordpress will use that as the homepage template.

These two Wordpress Codex links will help you:
