Hi - I just purchased Genesis with the Outreach theme. I have a little experience with WP and with other themes but this is my first attempt at using Genesis.
I've created a home page, other pages, and a blog page. I have tried to set up the Home #1 widget to display a featured page, but it appears to not do anything. The footer widgets do indeed work just fine, so I speculate that I'm just getting the home page properly identified to Genesis or something.
Can anyone suggest something to point me in the right direction toward solving this? I would really appreciate it.
A home.php file is already included in your child theme.
It contains widgets for your home page.
You don't need to setup a static page for your home page.
Simply select your front page displays your latest posts in your Settings > Reading and populate the home page widgets.
If you don't populate your home page widgets, it will display your latest posts.
I suggest you then publish a new page using the blog template from the drop down menu under page attributes and add a custom link to your menu for your blog.
You can then go to the Genesis > Theme Settings and configure your Content Archives and other settings.

Thank you very much for taking time to answer my question. I appreciate your help!
Do all Genesis child themes work this way? I'm not used to having the home page be be a posts page, but it's fine with me so long as I know what to do.
Again, thank you for your help!
