Note: this approach will hide the subcategories from all the pages, not from home page only.

I don't think "display:none" is a good practice to hide something unless it is being used to hide interactive element. This will make the element hidden for the user but it will still exist in the html code. Depending on content SE may consider the site is trying to serve different content to end users and bots (and Google for example will penalize if it thinks that's the case) or even think of it as spam...

If some element should not be shown on a page best to comment out the code or have conditional statement but to simply use display:none is not something you should recommend.

In 5.1 official release there will be special setting under "Catalog"->"Front page" section to define root category listing format: List | Icons | Hide

I hope you will review this feature in next 5.1 beta

I have used Custom Skin and the PHP code to remove the categories from the homepage body - easy peasy (thanks Tony!). I would like to know how to remove the blank page space between my front page content and the footer menu...any suggestions?

I'm sure you could do this with custom CSS. Do you have a link to the page in question? An image showing what you would like the result to be would be nice too.

Here is an image of what I would like to remove - this is a screen shot of my homepage - I have quite a bit of blank space between my homepage content and the footer menu (I shaded it in the image) - I would like to remove it...

BRDgirl,
I have made a quick tutorial on tweaking the CSS to accomplish this: http://youtu.be/3FwWfadCvuw

Let me know if that helps.

In this case, you need to apply a simple change using Custom skin module. This change is described here:

Search for "How to hide category block from home page and keep it on other pages?" title.
