    Hi Guys!

    I’m want to create a homepage with an infinite scroll. So what I’m looking for is a long singe column of posts.

    How do I do this?

    I tried Mocha and the Minimum theme, but they display one full post on the homepage, and then they show a summary of the remaining posts in two columns.

    How do I change this?

    Thanks!

    Jetpack includes infinite scroll or you can install a separate plugin and then display full content posts rather than excerpts.

    Hi Brad, Thanks for your input.

    I think there are two things which I’m trying to do.

    The first, I want to create a single column of posts on the home page.
    The second issue is that I want to enable the infinite scroll.

    I’d like to focus on getting the posts to show up in a single column first, and then once that’s working, I can make the infinite scroll part work too.

    To be more specific about a single column of posts, take a look at this demo homepage:

    http://demo.studiopress.com/mocha/

    You see how you have one post at the top in full length, and then four post excerpts at the bottom? Thats what I’m trying to change.

    I would like for the homepage to look more like this:

    http://demo.studiopress.com/streamline/

    You see how you have the posts in one column – that’s what I’m going for. Then, after that is set, I’d like to make the infinite scroll work.

    Any help or input is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
    -Alexander

    Hi Brad, I’m using the Mocha theme right now. But I noticed that many of the genesis child themes have the same setup on the homepage. Hopefully the solution isn’t tied to which theme I’m using. Thanks for your help. -Alexander

    You can simply change the settings in the home.php file to display features:
    [php]
    <?php

    remove_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘genesis_do_loop’ );
    add_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘child_grid_loop_helper’ );
    /** Add support for Genesis Grid Loop **/
    function child_grid_loop_helper() {

    if ( function_exists( ‘genesis_grid_loop’ ) ) {
    genesis_grid_loop( array(
    ‘features’ => 5,
    ‘feature_image_size’ => 0,
    ‘feature_image_class’ => ‘alignleft post-image’,
    ‘feature_content_limit’ => 10000,
    ‘grid_image_size’ => 0,
    ‘grid_image_class’ => 0,
    ‘grid_content_limit’ => 0,
    ‘more’ => __( ‘[Continue reading]’, ‘genesis’ ),
    ‘posts_per_page’ => 5,
    ) );
    } else {
    genesis_standard_loop();
    }

    }

    genesis();
    [/php]

    Hi Brad – thanks for your help. I think that code snippet will get me where I need to go. I can take it from here. Thanks :-)
