[Plone-UI] Show news only on the frontpage?!

As soon as you install contentwellportlets and you are at your home page:
say http://foo.com then you click "add, edit or remove a portlet above the
content" it shifts you to
http://foo.com/front-page/@@manage-portletsabovecontent. Then it has a
message that says you are doing this for this item only and it isn't in the
folder. If you want to add them to the folder itself there is a link.

I hope this helps
