    I’m having an issue with the Education theme when attempting to use widgets on the home page instead of recent posts……. I’ve registered an extra widget in the functions.php file using:

    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    	'id'			=> 	'close',
    	'name'			=>	__( 'Close', 'education' ),
    	'description'	=>	__( 'This is the close section displayed below the call to action banner.', 'education' ),
    ) );

    and then added the widget hook to the home.php file as follows:

    /** Add the home close section */
    add_action( 'genesis_before_loop', 'education_close' );
    function education_close() {
        /** Do nothing on page 2 or greater */
        if ( get_query_var( 'paged' ) >= 2 )
        genesis_widget_area( 'close', array(
        'before' => '
        ) );

    however, no matter where i put the code to the home.php it shoves my sidebars underneath…. so any help would definitely be appreciated
