    Hi

    I’m trying to modify the layout of the home page of my site. I am running the Metro Theme.

    http://signaturehouston.com

    What I’d like to do is the following:

    Make the Home Top section (the area with the large photo) full width. Make the Middle Section (where it says Neighborhood by location) full width by adding a third column). And Sliding the sidebar down to align with the blog post entries.

    Of course, all these changes have to work on all formats of the site (tablet, mobile and desktop).

    I opened up the home.php file but I’m afraid that if I mess that up I will cause more damage than solve the problem.

    Please help if you can. I would greatly appreciate it.

    Make a copy of your home.php file, then you can mess around with the original and always have a backup copy. Do the same with your functions and css files.

    Thanks Lynne. I took your advice and I saved all the main files.

    But what I don’t understand, is whether to change the code directly in the home.php file or do it through hooks in the functions file.

    Another question: I see you are a designer – would you be able to do what I’m trying to do for a fee and what would that be?

    Thanks
