Is it possible to apply the genesis grid loop to the homepage of the Education Theme? If so, are there any special considerations?
I haven’t done it (although I’ve used the grid loop and have worked with that particular theme), but I would think it should work. This post by Bill Erickson (who wrote the plugin for the grid loop) is an excellent overview of how to implement it.
Thanks Dorian. I tested Bill’s code quickly and it worked but… since Education Theme has an inner widget on the home page (gosh I wish I could make it go away and keep the outer) the wrapping isn’t so good. I think I need the most recent post or two to display normally and only begin the grid after those. I think I’m going to have to use the Genesis code with all its complication but now I know it works. I appreciate our help.
Well, I think you should be able to do that – if you edit the home.php file to remove some of the widgets (not sure I am following when you refer to inner and outer widgets), you can then have the grid loop. I know I’ve used the grid loop on a site that had a widgeted area at the top. The client ended up ditching the slider on her homepage so we axed the widgeted area but at one point, it was working.
