    Hi there,

    There’s probably a better way to do this, but, for now, I’m interested in removing the blog from the home page.

    Site is here:

    http://lunabeannation.com/4eyoga/

    I know I could just assign a different page, but I’m not sure how I would make the picture take up the entire space without affecting other pages…so I think this is the easiest solution. Maybe.

    You could create a home.php to use a widgetized homepage instead of showing posts. There are a number of tutorials out there, or you could grab a home.php from another child theme and customize it.

    The site is gorgeous, by the way! I love the way it looks.

    Thanks so much for the replies. My issue is primarily that there is no home.php file to edit. I have functions, landing-page, and the css. I don’t know if this is a new thing with the Going Green Pro…BUT, in the past I’ve just been able to edit home.php (as suggested in the blog post). Now I’m at a loss. Thanks!

    I am working on a widget home page for Going Green Pro as well. I took a copy of front-page.php (instead of home.php) from Lifestyle Pro, it works, I registered the widget areas in the functions file and my widgets are showing up.

    However I get into problems if I try to rename the child theme info in the page.

    such as – add_action( ‘genesis_meta’, ‘going-green_home_genesis_meta’ );
    /**
    * Add widget support for homepage. If no widgets active, display the default loop.
    *
    */

    function going_green_home_genesis_meta() {

    if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘home-top’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘home-middle’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘home-bottom-left’ ) || is_active_sidebar( ‘home-bottom-right’ ) ) {

    // Force content-sidebar layout setting
    add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout’, ‘__genesis_return_content_sidebar’ );

    // Add going-green-pro-home body class
    add_filter( ‘body_class’, ‘going-green_body_class’ );

    // Remove the default Genesis loop
    remove_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘genesis_do_loop’ );

    // Add homepage widgets
    add_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘going-green_homepage_widgets’ );

    }
    }

    I get this error –
    Warning: call_user_func_array() [function.call-user-func-array]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, ‘going-green_home_genesis_meta’ was given in /home/content/68/8481068/html/karson/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 429

    I have tried it many, many ways and unless I have lifestyle instead of going-green, there is an error code and the widgets disappear. There must be some way to name this to match the theme, but I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong. Would love some help.

    Hi dreamdancer, Did you get this to work, I am trying to do the same thing. Actually, first I used a static page as the Home page and tried using column classes, but for a few reasons much rather have widgets on the Home page, so I’m trying for the second time to do this, and running into same problem you are having.

    Hi Helen, I thought I could send a private message, but this board doesn’t do that. Here is a link to download my two custom files. https://files.secureserver.net/0sMQ2qknUJeuIg

    There is the front-page.php with a few widget spots, and the functions.php that registers the sidebars.
    here is some home page CSS also:

    /* Home*/
    .home-middle .featuredpost img {
    margin-bottom: 0;
    margin-right: 20px;
    margin-right: 2rem;
    }

    .home-bottom-left,
    .home-bottom-right {
    width: 332px;
    }

    .home-bottom-left {
    float: left;
    }

    .home-bottom-right {
    float: right;
    }

    h2,
    .home-top .entry-title {
    font-size: 24px;
    font-size: 2.4rem;
    font-family: ‘Lora’, serif;
    margin-left: 15px;
    margin-right: 15px;
    }

    .home .entry-content {
    margin-left: 15px;
    margin-right: 15px;
    }

    @media only screen and (max-width: 1268px)
    .footer-widgets-1,
    .footer-widgets-2,
    .footer-widgets-3, .home-bottom-left,
    .home-bottom-right,
    .sidebar-primary {
    width: 260px;
    }

    @media only screen and (max-width: 1023px)
    .home-bottom-left,
    .home-bottom-right {
    width: 332px;
    }

    @media only screen and (max-width: 834px)
    .home-bottom-left,
    .home-bottom-right,
    .five-sixths,
    .four-sixths,
    .one-fourth,
    .one-half,
    .one-sixth,
    .one-third,
    .three-fourths,
    .three-sixths,
    .two-fourths,
    .two-sixths,
    .two-thirds {
    margin: 0;
    width: 100%;
    }
