    Hello,
    I’ve put the genesis featured widgets in the about and portfolio sidebars to mimic a magazine-type layout, with a featured post and some recent posts after it. I still want the sidebar to show, though, and I’m not sure what to do to get it to display. I looked at the php files, and other than adding the sidebar to the home and functions files (which I tried to do, and it failed) I’m not sure what else to do.
    Thanks for any help!

    Look in your home.php and find this:

    // Force content-sidebar layout setting
    		add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', '__genesis_return_full_width_content' );

    Add two slashes on the second line to change it to this:

    // Force content-sidebar layout setting
    		// add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', '__genesis_return_full_width_content' );

    That will prevent the theme from forcing a full width layout on the homepage.

    Thanks, Andrea. That worked, but for some reason my navigation disappeared.
    I have decided to just go with a normal layout – I think I was over-thinking it, but it would be good for me to figure out why the nav disappeared.
