    Hi,

    I am new to Genesis and dint quite realise how deep it goes, but i like the fact it’s a powerful proven system, so i am struggling with hooks and things like that.

    i am usng the Generate theme and learning a bit each day but i am strugglng with the folowing.

    i want to embed a video in my home page, and have the layout look like this site http://webvideouniversity.com/

    I have worked out i need the column shortcodes, sorted out the header responsiveness with another plugin but was thinking of using a slider or this fixed layout with the video and thats really what i need.

    Can anybody give me any pointers , i presume i need a hook after navigation or before content or something?

    i am used to normal themes with a layout bulder or more control from the theme settings.

    Do you have a link to your site please so I can have a look at what’s going on?

    Including Video in Sliders isn’t always the easiest thing to do and usually requires a slider that can support the inclusion of video due to complications with the slider annimating when the video is playing.

    Try this http://designsbynickthegeek.com/tutorials/add-widgeted-sidebar/

    Includes code for creating a widget area before posts

    Or you could use this which creates a widget area and extends full width

    You can also install the widget logic plugin to display your video on specific pages.
