We'd like to have the ability to insert some html in the main section of the home page so that we can post things like announcements and explanations or direct attention to particular questions (we'll be calling them "discussions"), when a user first reaches our Q2A home page.  I don't see a way to do this without modifying qa-page-home.php, which I'd like to avoid, if possible.  Am I missing something?

Alternately, or additionally, it would be really useful to be able to display custom html on a page (in the main section), conditionally, based on a query string parameter.  E.g., when we refer readers of our blog to a question on our Q2A platform, we could add a qa param to the Q2A link and display some kind of "Welcome!  Here's what you do next...," type of message.

Just looked at the 1.5 roadmap and noticed this in the minor features:

- Optional custom explanatory HTML to display to users asking a question, answering a question, or registering.

Is there a good way to achieve something like this now?

Sorry about the duplicate.

Yes that is currently the best way to add custom content to any page. Just create a custom theme and override a few functions.
