    Hi, I’m looking to add widget areas to the homepage using the eleven40 theme (or one like it – recommendations are welcome). What I’d like to do is keep the sidebar-content-sidebar layout but be able to add multiple widget areas to the homepage content area.

    I’m planning on having a main widget area at the top for use with the Genesis Responsive Slider.
    Then having 2 columns of widget areas (sidebar left & sidebar right) in the content area below the top slider widget.

    It looks like I can use these tutorials to add them:

    or

    But I’m wondering how to best do this to maintain the mobile responsive layout, have my widget areas and images within them resize some then jump to the correct locations for the appropriate browser window size.

    Does the Genesis Simple Sidebars plugin assist with homepage widget areas?

    THANKS!

    Simple Sidebars only replaces the Primary and Secondary sidebars that come with Genesis.

    To make your additions responsive you just need to add the corresponding style rules to the responsive rules.

    They are the last few rules in the style sheet, the ones under the “Responsive Design” label.
