I know this question has probably been answered but I want to create a text box with a few paragraphs on the top section of the opening page of my forum. Is there a simple way of doing this in phpBB3? I am VERY new to forums so please forgive my ignorance.

Regards,

Do you mean the homepage message box?

Thanks everyone! A quick question would now be is there any way I can use a text box with a verticle slider there?

my forum is at emotecontrol.american-forum.net Also, I would like to make my banner at the top of the page bigger but I could not find it in the CSS. Any quick advice?

Just add the following code in your css. Adjust the max-height to your need if you wish.
Code:
.mes-txt {
    max-height: 300px;
    overflow-y: scroll;
}

The bigger your image is, the bigger will be the banner. Just use a bigger image.
If you want to adjust the current image, it will be resized but the quality of the image will degrade.
Use this code for resizing
Code:
#logo img {
    width: 1100px;
}
