    I am using the Education Theme template.  I would like my front page to retain all of the widgets (header, slider, feature, etc) but don’t want the blog below (in other words, a static page).  How do I do this?

    I am an absolute newbie so please keep this in mind.  Thanks.

    Remove the loop by adding this code to your home.php file after the <?php opening PHP tag.

    remove_action( 'genesis_loop', 'genesis_do_loop' );
    

    Backup the file first.

    Or you could make a custom home page template using the code from the default home.php file. http://designsbynickthegeek.com/tutorials/add-widgeted-sidebar

    Brad,

    I added:

    remove_action( 'genesis_loop', 'genesis_do_loop' );

    to my Minimum Theme looking for the same effect as above.  However, once I do that I’m missing something.  It’s still shows a blog post if there are any.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    Hank

    Hank. Could you post a link to your site please.

    Try this code in your child themes style.css file:

    .home .post,
    .navigation li a, .navigation li.disabled, .navigation li a:hover, .navigation li.active a {
    display: none;
    }

    Brad,

    Does it matter where I add the code on the style.css sheet? Beginning, end, etc?

    Rookie :)

    If you’re using the Minimum theme, you could remove all posts from displaying on the home page using this CSS:

    .home #inner { 
    display: none; 
    }
