    Hi,

    On mikemetcalfe.co, I’d like to have a homepage with 3 columns (over the full width) and in each column, the latest blog posts from categories 1,2,3 being displayed. Anyone know how to achieve that?

    Thanks!

    You could add a full width widget area there and write the CSS so that each of the widgets you drag into that area float so they line up horizontally.

    Thks Anitac.

    a) Instead of full surgery, I think using the genesis_before_loop area might suit best, and having a horizontal bar or small image displaying the 3 blog categories, so using can quickly switch between them (or better yet, if it can auto-rotate / slide to display next category after 5 secs, great!)

    b) Been experimenting and already have a home featured widget setup. But, it displays nothing (because home.php is saved as home.txt – because of a page 2/3 grid loop display issue earlier). Strangely, when changing home.txt back to home.php, entire site goes white (not error page, just white).

    Any ideas why the B error exists and how to potentially achieve A?

    Thks!
