How do I put images like this on my main page?

Is there any mod or something?

Quickest way is to edit the existing article on the frontpage and just add that image to the article.

I'm not a fan of telling people that a site is under construction - especially if its a production site. It advertises that you are currently making changes and developing the site, which means you have not done any real security testing...which makes it a big target for hackers.

If you are going to have it under construction then why not make a simple index.html page with the image and any language on it. Usually a html file is read before the php file so that would come up first. You could continue to develop and access the site by going to http://www.abcx.com/index.php .

It wont prevent you from being hacked if your developing in a production environment but it does provide a little security by obscurity.

That's my 2 cents.

.... yeah, case in point - this site was hacked....
A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.
