    I am using Balance theme and am trying to create a separate sidebar just for the homepage. Currently I have the blog page set as the homepage in the settings so the homepage shows the feature areas and then a blog post below that.  So far I have tried using the Simple Sidebar plugin. I created a unique sidebar and then selected it on the blog page. This didn’t work so I then tried creating a new sidebar area by adding code to the functions.php file.  I added this code to the functions file:

    /** Register widget areas */
    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
        ‘id’            => ‘homeinfo’,
        ‘name’          => __( ‘Home Bio Area’, ‘balance’ ),
        ‘description’   => __( ‘This widget is the bio information on the homepage’, ‘balance’ ),
    ) );

    Now I am wondering how to call that widget to be only on the homepage. I’m not sure what code to put where. This site is located here: http://strongtrainings.com

    Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    You could use the Widget Logic plugin and display specific widget content on the homepage only.
