    Hi I registered the home featured widget area and used the codes from here: http://www.briangardner.com/home-widget-area-eleven40/

     

    I did exactly what he said and changed the codes to make it a full with widget

    I put a Revolution Slider in the widget – BUT the only way to make it appear is by putting a code in the Home page before the text…..So the ONLY way the slider shows up full width is if I have the portfolio layout BUT I want to have a sidebar area after the slider on the home page and I cant figure out how to resolve this!!!! Please help!!

    Thanks

    Try changing the hook from genesis_before_loop to genesis_before_content_sidebar_wrap

    thanks Brad- I did that but it isnt working – in order to make the revolution slider work you have to put this kinda code in the beginning of the page you want it on:  [rev_slider koshin1]

    So I suspect this might be causing an issue – I have spent 6 hours trying to figure it out – if you have any insight I greatly appreciate it

    thanks

    it says this under the slider plugin: but I dont really see how or where to add codes besides on the actual Page I want it
    How To Use:

    • * From the theme html use: “ example: “
      For show only on homepage use: “
      For show on certain pages use: “
    • * From the widgets panel drag the “Revolution Slider” widget to the desired sidebar
    • * From the post editor insert the shortcode from the sliders table

    You need to add support for shortcodes in widgets and/or echo the shortcode.

    Example:

    If you want to use the shortcode in a text widget, add this to your child themes functions.php file.
    [php]
    add_filter(‘widget_text’, ‘do_shortcode’);
    [/php]

    Sorry Brad if I am slightly confused: I have been learning this for only a year…..
    – so do I just add the same code you wrote :
    add_filter(‘widget_text’, ‘do_shortcode’);
    in the functions.php file or do I add more codes
    and do I leave the slider code on the actual HOME page

    You can display the slider using a widget or echo in the shortcode. Either way, you’ll need to add support for shortcodes so add that one line to your child themes functions.php file.

    Then you can add the shortcode for your slider in a widget or using the code I have supplied above.

    P.S. I did notice that when you pasted the code it changed the Apostrophes which will cause an error. Paste the code into Notepad++ first and fix the apostrophes.

    Paste the one line of code as is.

    All PHP code should be pasted at the end of your child themes functions.php file using a text editor like Notepad++.

    I did what you said and I see no slider. I also went over the code and cant find any missing or incorrect Apostrophes.
