Found the answer thanks to Support. For anyone else who wants the home page to display as sidebar/content/sidebar you must replace the code in front-page.php with the following:
//* Force sidebar-content-sidebar layout setting
add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout’, ‘__genesis_return_sidebar_content_sidebar’ );
Now it works! Not exactly “out of the box” but this tweak should do it.
I want three columns to appear on the home page. They do appear everywhere except for the home page, as per the default settings.
It works fine until I start adding featured post widgets. Once I add even one widget, the layout reverts to content/sidebar. If I remove the widget, it goes back to sidebar/widget/sidebar
Thanks. Will do!
Any ideas on why the sidebar/content/sidebar options don’t work on the home page?
I just started work on a site with the intent to have two sidebars on the home page using Daily Dish. I set the default theme settings for sidebar/content/sidebar and the home page looked ok. Once I started adding the home page widgets, I lost the left sidebar though. Any thoughts on how to get it back? Thanks.
Ok, such as Daily Dish, right?
Thanks. I’ll give it a try!
I’m all set now Ben, but thanks anyway. I’ll keep you in mind in case anything else comes up though!
Thanks again Brad. Really appreciate your help!
Oops…just found it in the actual widget and removed By [post_author_posts_link] there. Working now.
I found that the solution was in the css file not home.php. I removed the background color from .home-top-left and that seemed to fix the issue.
I deactivated wp-cycle for the same reasons and installed and activated a Genesis Slider. However, I still have a white box in the top left of my home page where wp-cycle used to be. Tried removing the code from home.php but I get an error message. Maybe I’m taking out too much code…or not enough?
<?php if (!dynamic_sidebar(‘Home Top Left’)) : ?>
<?php if( function_exists(‘wp_cycle’) ) : ?>
<?php wp_cycle(); ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php endif; ?>
</div><!– end .home-top-left –>
Thanks Tonya. One more question, when I remove a navigation menu everything slides to either the right (or center). My client wants his logo to line up directly under the “Home” item. Any way to left justify the top nav but leaving about an inch of space?
Perfect! This works quite well. Thank you VERY much!
