    Hi All,

    I’m sorry if this has been addressed already. I’ve been scouring the forums and documentation and I either haven’t found the answer or misinterpreted other fixes.

    The closest solution I found was: http://www.studiopress.com/forums/topic/minimum-rendering-3-footer-widgets-on-homepage-only/

    However, I added the PHP snippet (http://www.studiopress.com/forums/topic/minimum-rendering-3-footer-widgets-on-homepage-only/#post-39042) below `add_theme_support( ‘genesis-footer-widgets’, 3 );` and couldn’t make the magic happen – was also unsuccessful when removing `add_theme_support( ‘genesis-footer-widgets’, 3 );` and then adding the aforementioned PHP snippet.

    Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Add the code below the existing code. No need to add theme support again for footer widgets as its already in your child themes functions.php file.

    Hi Brad – thanks for jumping in. That is correct – I did not add theme support a second time.

    And, I’ve actually added the snippet back in to the functions.php file (and left it there this time). The 3 footer widgets are still rendering on all pages and posts. Thanks again.

    Thanks Brad – I just tried it again, replacing instances of ‘wpsites’ with ‘metro’. I also just added the following because I’m using a custom front page (and still no go):

    `add_action( ‘genesis_before’, ‘wpsites_display_footer_front_page’ );
    function wpsites_display_footer_front_page() {
    if( !is_front_page() ) {
    remove_action( ‘genesis_before_footer’, ‘genesis_footer_widget_areas’ );
    }}`

    I’ve left the above in place.

    Is it possible that a plugin could be causing the interference on something like this? I’ll try disabling plugins in the meantime.

    I think I may just widgetize the homepage/frontpage with that Genesis Extender plugin at this point.

    Follow-up
    I’ve decided to just remove the footer widgets entirely and add 3 new widgets to the homepage/frontpage only. Used the Genesis extender plugin to add the widgets and will be customizing the CSS.

    Thanks again, Brad.

    Tested that code and it works. Did you copy this code from the view raw link and paste it in your child themes functions.php file using a code editor like Notepad++?
