    Hi

    I am now working on a website using Prose theme.   For configuring the homepage posts, the tutorial is read as follows:

    Visit Dashboard>Appearance>Widgets and drag a Genesis Featured Post widget to Home Left.

    I have tried to follow the above, but at my Widgets there is no “Home Left” or “Home Right”. I can only see “Header Right”, “Primary Sidebar”, “Secondary Sidebar”, and “Footer (1, 2 &3) there.

    Please anyone help me on this?

    Thank you!

    Mike

    You’re using Prose? Can you provide a link to your site? I’m pretty sure that theme doesn’t have a widgeted homepage. Are you sure you’re looking at the correct set of tutorials?

    Hi Dorian, thank you for your reply. You’re right, I seemed to have looked at the tutorials for different themes.

    Thanks again!

    Great! You can mark this topic as “resolved” if that answered your question.

    Just one another question. Would it be possible to do settings on a blog to show on homepage, such as, number of lines (or number of characters), etc?  Thank you!

    I’m not sure I understand your question. I think what you’re asking is – can you set it up to show excerpts of each blog post, instead of the entire post, on your homepage?

    In your Genesis Theme Settings, there’s a box for “show content” or “show excerpt.” Switch that to show the excerpt. Or you can tell it “show content” and limit the content to a certain number of characters.
