    Hi members,

    I need help to customize my website and I’m using Generate theme:

    I need the instruction to customize the part just right below the Generate box.

    I don’t like the current theme function as it automatic post the most recent blog post on the front page.

    I want to delete that part and register the custom widget for that part so that I can use the Genesis- Featured Page and Genesis-Featured Post.

    Please help if you got the idea how to do it.

    Big thanks!

    Wilson

    You’ll need to add custom widgets to the home.php file or functions.php file using a conditional tags for is_home().

    You can remove the posts from the home page by hiding them using CSS code or removing the loop from the home.php file.

    There are many ways to customize your home page but all require custom coding.

    Another option is to use a static page as your home page and add content column shortcodes to the text editor which doesn’t reqiure any CSS or PHP coding only HTML.

    You can also install the Generate box plugin rather than use the code from the home.php file.

    Backup your files and data first.

    Hi Brad,

    I still want to use the homepage php. Can you instruct me step by step on how?

    First, can you teach me how to removing the loop from the home.php file.

    Second, register the new widget area on that area so that i can use the genesis-featured post and page?

    I tried to register new widget area on the homepage before but It corrupted by function.php file luckily i did the back up. I did this prior delete the loop.

    Thanks for you help. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Wilson
