    Is it possible to remove the widget area on the home page of the news theme so I can have a slider covering the top of the home page? At the moment, I have the genesis slider width at 960 but it is only showing two thirds of it as the widget area is taking the rest. I have set the default page as full width, still no difference.

    Thanks

    Instead, you can create new widget area of width 960px below the header area and then add slider to it. Use following code:

    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    'id' => 'homepage-feature',
    'name' => __( 'Homepage Feature', 'custom' ),
    'description' => __( 'This is Homepage feature section', 'custom' ),
    ) );
    /** Top Homepage feature section */
    add_action( 'genesis_after_header', 'news_homepage_feature', 9 );
    function news_homepage_feature() {
    if ( is_home() && is_active_sidebar( 'homepage-feature' ) ) {
    echo '';
    dynamic_sidebar( 'homepage-feature' );
    echo '';
    }
    }

    Better if you copy code from source website and embed code above seem to break :(
