Daily Theme, how do I display posts on the front page? Do I need WPMU?

Hello,

I am a complete newbie to BuddyPress and the Daily Theme and to WPMU Dev -so I have a lot of scope to screw something up!

So far I have uploaded and installed WP. Installed BuddyPress. Joined WPMU Dev and downloaded the BP Daily theme. I've installed the theme and activated the Daily child version.

Now I'm just playing around with trying to get posts to diplay on the home page. I created a few sample categories and test posts but they do not appear on my home page: http://www.sendingsmiles.com.au.

I know it's a small and simple thing, but myhead is swimmign with so much new info right now!

Thank you for any advice.
