I check out this tutorial – how to setup homepage on your web page.
I read and do as test Drop a DW Focus news list as well as put text for a custom script which I want. In edit mode, I see all. Online, I can not see any content – it`s empty.
How to fix that?
Also, can I make that home page be without a right sidebar?
Thanks.

At the moment, you can not use the front-end page option in the DW Focus. If you want to show the widget on the home page, you need to disable it. Also, If you want to use this option, you need to add the content or create the page template for the homepage. I have disabled the front-end option.

I do not understand. I don't want that my home page lists latest posts?
At all. I want that my home page is static and as your theme show to include same information about the different source for example:
– I need to embed code for some banner promotions
– I need to list news from one category etc.
Everything that you type in this articles – <a href="https://www.designwall.com/guide/dw-focus/setup-homepage/&quot; rel="nofollow">https://www.designwall.com/guide/dw-focus/setup-homepage/</a&gt;

Now you tell me that this is not options?
Am I right?

I mean, If you want to create the homepage look like our demo, you need to use the Widgets as we wrote in the document to show the sections and not select the front-end option in the settings. If you want, I will help you create the demo look like our site and you can access and change the content.

– I need to embed code for some banner promotions?
You can use the text widget to embed code in the Widget positions. It’s very simple.

If you use the A static page (select below) option, you cannot show the Home widget and sidebar widget to the Homepage. You need to create another page template to customize the homepage. Hope you understand what I mean.

I do not understand what is wrong I try to explain what I need.
1. Home page I want to be static – to have in that page several different widgets and to use full width I do not want to have the sidebar on the home page.
2. I know how to embed code in a text widget, but the problem is that when I inserted and published the widget, I can not see that online at homepage but for example I test, and I can see in the page product.
3. I do not want to have a demo because I know what are in the demo and I need a little bit different home page.
So can you build somehow that home page that I can use your widget as well as another widget and text etc.?

Thanks for the help.

I know what you want. To resolve this issue, you can add the following file to the dw-focus in the theme folder. 
https://www.dropbox.com/s/dthix0cgt0vk7jo/template-no-sidebar.php?dl=0
Then log into Dashboard > Pages > Edit home page and select No Sidebar template in the Page Attributes section on the right-hand side.
