The MiniCMS plugin might be what you are looking for if you mean just like the latest news.

Sadly, it doesn't work for 1.5 yet.

No. Jeff Bailey provided the correct solution. The OP is looking for a way to display information on the gallery index page (not the site index page), which is exactly what anycontent does.

Sadly, it doesn't work for 1.5 yet.

Then it shouldn't have been mentioned and renders your solution/suggestion as invalid.

The alternative to anycontent.php would be to utilize the custom header function, which is a little more involved but will accomplish a similar feat.

If OP wants dynamic content, pulling in information from elsewhere, then I agree anycontent is the way to go. If he just wants to have the ability to put static news updates at the top of the page, MiniCMS can put it anywhere anycontent can, and would be simpler since no external editing or uploading files etc is necessary. I've done that for years.

As for being an invalid suggestion, I disagree. OP may be willing to wait for MiniCMS to be fixed instead of investing time on other options if it does exactly what he wants.
