Do you mean above your blog posts?
The Page Header add-on allows you to insert content/HTML above the posts inside “Appearance > Blog Page Header”.
yes, i was aware of this, it works for the main blog page but it creates a separate header above the content area. i was talking about adding text inside the top of the content area of the default blog page.
You can also use GP Hooks with some conditionals in any of the hooks:
yep, those two work as i wanted if i put them in the “Before Content” gp hook.
