You can change the main intro hero, the following landing row, and footer in the following locations;
hero: source/_includes/custom/hero.html
landing row: source/_includes/custom/home_landing_row.html
footer: source/_includes/custom/footer.html

You can change the background image used behind the hero by replacing the image in source/images/background.jpg


I highly recommend using excerpts of your posts, this will allow your short excerpt to be used on your index page instead of including the entire post (unless that's what you want).

To create an excerpt for your posts add <!--more--> in the actual markup for your posts. Anything before this tag will be used as the excerpt for said post.

Pull-Requests Welcomed!

This is a first draft and can definitely be improved on. Pull requests are very much welcomed and desired!
