    I’m trying to add in a 2/3 left widget area and 1/3 right widget area under the Call to Action in the Executive theme. But I have clearly botched it up. http://www.avi8coaching.com.au/ I’ve done this successfully before, but I can’t get them to go inline.

    I also can’t seem to get the image from the “Featured Widget Amplified” plugin to left align (despite setting it to align left).

    Is there an easy way to add a 2/3 – 1/3 (blog/sidebar) to a theme’s homepage?





    That area is picking up the default styling. I am not that good at this, but looking at it in Firebug you are missing come styling in <div class=”home”?

    Something that would look like this but for the home class by itself.

    .executive-home .home-cta {

        -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
        background-color: #222222;
        color: #DDDDDD;
        float: left;
        padding: 60px 70px;
        width: 100%;

    Thanks for the reply! It was actually this code that caused me the problem: <code>clear: both;</code> I put it in the wrong class.

    All set on the alignment issue..now I just have to figure out why the Featured Page Amplified plugin isn’t left aligning my images.




    Wow, I don’t know where all that other code came from in my reply. Glad you found it.



    The left aligning problem is something that comes from the design of the homepage, since all widgets are setup for images above the text. You have to customize the code. I removed the clear: both; code from the h2 tag.
