    Ya, you’d need to set the layout to content-sidebar and then switch the sidebars with Bill’s code since there isn’t a content/secondary-sidebar layout.

    Ok, I followed Bill’s advice.

    And the sidebar’s did switch. I set the secondary sidebar not to come back. Unfortunately, there is still a space where it should be.

    Yes I see that big space where the sidebar should be, that won’t work….

    Hey, just came across this. I had a HELL of a time getting the Primary Sidebar off. I tried a couple of things suggested on Studiopress/elsewhere. Nothing worked, some things crashed it. Finally I did the following:

    ***IMPORTANT: You are about to no longer have a primary sidebar. Period. They say don’t mess with the Genesis theme and do everything in the child theme. I didn’t.

    1. Appearance -> Editor

    2. Select theme to edit -> click “Genesis”, hit “Select” button

    3. Find Sidebar file on right side (it says (sidebar.php) under it

    4. Highlight all text. Copy. Paste in Notepad document. Save it just in case you ever want the sidebar back. Delete all the text in there. Click “Update File”. Voila, no more primary sidebar.

    Oh, another thing, if you want to expand the content area, change the “width” section (I don’t know which one it should be, so… I did both) of these:

    /* Content
    ———————————————————— */

    #content {
    float: left;
    margin: 50px;
    width: 880px;
    }

    .content-sidebar #content,
    .sidebar-content #content {
    width: 880px;
    }
