By Front page description do you mean the words you have written on that page where you have taken the screenshot? They appear in a side block "site summary" which you have to add. If you want the description to appear in the centre of your front page you need to tick "include a topic section " and then turn on the editing on the front page and type in the description; then save.

The description in Frontpage settings is a bit misleading. The site description actually appears in the Course/site description block. Add it to your frontpage to see the description.

To have it visible by only logged out users, the only way I can think of is to create a roll with moodle/block:view set to prohibit and assign it to each user at that block but set the guest role to allow. The guest will be able to see all blocks, though...

Thank you Mary and Christian for your help. I think it might be the theme i was using or something. I copuldn't get the topic to appear, but i added a label instead and switched off courses appearing. The block did appear Christian, but i wanted it in the centre not left or right (fussy i know)

Thanks again for your help
