    I am wondering how to customize the blog area on the front page of the Streamline Child theme. I’ve looked all throughout the files, and I am unsure where to make the customizations.

    My preference would be to have it call a one post category to keep that content static. I like the rest of the page layout.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So you only want to display posts from one category on the home page?

    If that’s the case, you can:

    1. create a new page
    2. select the blog page template from the page attributes
    3. publish it
    4. Go to Settings > Reading > Front page > a static page > select the blog page as your front page.

    Then go to Genesis > Theme Settings > Blog Page Template > Display which category > Select the category of posts you want to display.

    Thanks for the response Brad!

    I actually like everything on the front page as it was originally created. It’s just that in the blog section, I would like it to be just one category.

    I actually found a website on the web who managed to do this.

    I was thinking that I would probably need to customize the Genesis Loop to do this, but I was unable to figure out how do that.

    Hi Todd

    I just published a post on this which includes links to other solutions so i think you’ll find everything you need there including 5 ways to exclude categories from the loop.

    Hey Dalton!

    Thanks very much. I think this will help me out a bunch. I think there are multiple different ways to do what I need to do based on your instructions. I will work on it today.

    Thanks very much!
