    If you are using a static front page, this is easy: Just type whatever message you would like into the page you are using for a front page.

    If you aren’t using a static front page, the easiest way to achieve this is to use a Graphene action hook widget area and a text widget. You’ll also want to use the Widget Logic plugin to make it show up on just the front page, or, you can use a PHP Widget and a simple bit of coding to achieve the same.

    Action hook widget area tutorial:

    I’m not sure which widget area you’ll want to use. Probably graphene_before_content or graphene_after_slider.

    Let us know how you get on with this.

    i tried both hook but it does not work.Note that i want to display the post in excerpt and also show a message after the menu and before the posts.

    i used front page post category from graphene option.

    my site is pepdeal.com

    The two hooks I suggested were just a guess, since I didn’t know anything about your site. (No URL, no other details…) You’ll have to play around with it a bit and experiment with different widget areas.

    graphene_top_menu should be what you are looking for… it’s under header.php

    NOTE: You will need to use some custom CSS to get the box looking the way you want.
