Social Engine script homepage, which models are used ?

I can go up to the IndexAction of IndexConroller in Core Module of SE4. But then I am at a loss. Which models are used there to build the homepage? I think when I can learn about the models used there I can understand which css files and layout(s) are used and in what way

    I am re-posting my queries : I want the script to 1) show a facebook like homepage 2) show user's name on all pages 3) add in profile page in addition to 'updates' and 'info' , 2 new tabs i.e , 'Have' and 'want'. A user's documents will be shown under the 'have' tab and wanted document names in the 'want' tab. Obviously the user needs an option to be able to upload text, img files to db. And only friends will be able to share documents among themselves.. others won't have the privilege. Am I asking so much? Anyone's helping hand is most appreciated... Thanks

    If you want add advanced content in home page, you need create a widget, which will be show it. To create a widget use the SE developer SDK in admin panel.

      Good example for understand IndexAction method of IndexController the plugin Blogs. IndexAction method of IndexController is using to show all blogs. ViewAction method of IndexController is using to show one blog.

    Homepage don't have conroller and action. You can edit this page only with layout editor. If you need global default layout(s) go to application/modules/Core/layouts/scripts.
