    Thanks, CWalsh. Worked perfectly! Unfortunately for me, looking now at the site on a mobile…I’m going to have to re-think my plan!

    Many thanks again,

    Colin

    Thanks for your replies. I think, time was, you’d stuff your pages with text and keywords. I get the impression things have changed so I suppose the meta info would suffice.
    I use Yoast too, and the Genesis meta settings you mention are probably overridden / replaced by Yoast.

    Still, the question remains, do search engines see the content if a pages content is made up of widgets…?

    Thanks for the reply, Brad.  I’ll look forward to Genesis 2.  And i must read up on HTML 5.  I have a feeling it’s a little different to the HTML i learned years ago…

    I was hoping the boxes would simply rearrange themselves on top of one another, instead of becoming squashed.  My CSS isn’t very good!  I have some learning to do!

    Thanks again

    Thanks very much for your reply Wendy, and, um, I’m now so sorry to have posted…  You’re absolutely right.  .  Thing is i’ve recently managed to add the after post content, it seems i didn’t know how to do it at that time.  

    Thanks for taking the trouble!

    By gosh, it worked!  I had to cobble together a page template, but yes!  Many thanks!

    Well, having said I was just looking at the tutorial, obviously I hadn’t paid much attention!  It may well be the answer…

    Thanks Susan, It’s almost spooky, i was just looking at that tutorial when you replied, which is suggesting simple sidebars, the thing is simple sidebars is compatible / tested up to WP version 3.3.2, i’m using 3.5.1 here.  So i’m a bit reluctant to use it.

     

    Thanks again.

    Having properly read through the following tutorial:

     
    http://www.artofblog.com/building-a-genesis-child-theme/

    …and cutting out the code that I didn’t need, I managed to accomplish what i needed to do.  My mistake, apologies for that, but it was tricky!

    Hi Landon,

     

    I’ve got it to work by following this tutorial:

    http://www.carriedils.com/add-slider-minimum-theme/2293

    although it’s for the minimum theme it worked for me using the sample theme.

    Hi media,

     

    Perhaps not exactly what your after, but this might be helpful:

    http://www.briangardner.com/blog-page-single-category/

     

    and possibly this:
    http://graphnickdesign.com/blog/custom-genesis-category-page/

    I’m no PHP coder, so can’t really help there.  I’m just looking around for a similar solution.

    Good luck!

    Apologies for the slow response, yes, thank you, that was the info I was looking for, ‘float’ and ‘clear’.  So I made significant progress there.  I’m now dedicating myself to learning css….

     

    Many thanks again,

    Many thanks for your replies.  @SoZo  I read that tutorial, the problem there is when i want to create multiple sidebars on the same row, they end up stacked on top of one another / on different rows.  Tried messing with the code, not sure what i’m doing… I’ve downloaded the Agency theme, will have a look. A bit of a shame though – I’ve been working away on the genesis sample theme and preferred the look of that.  Seems like i’d have to do as much work on Agency.  And I find the fact that the home page has to be non-static a bit weird, and contradicts what i’d designed as the structure of the site.

     

    @Dorian.  What your suggesting is pure common sense!  I’ve got a css book here which I plan to get stuck into , and i’ve been using Firebug and playing with the results.  So yes, I think i’ll learn CSS first and maybe further down the line get into PHP.  i’ve read the article you mention, as with most tutorials there’s a point where it either doesn’t work, or quite suit my needs and will need modifying, the only way to do this is learn the code…

     

    Many thanks again for your responses.

    I followed a tutorial found here:

    http://graphnickdesign.com/blog/custom-genesis-category-page/

    ..which is great, really easy to implement. But, as always, it’s not specific to my wants / needs.

    The page in question is here:

    http://clienttest.macsupportedlondon.co.uk/every-day/

    The page content (slideshow, paragraph of text) is fine. It is then followed by a Post preview spanning the full width, then a grid of related posts.

    What I don’t like is the first, full width , post preview. For 2 reasons – 1) The post is then repeated in the grid. 2) there’s a ‘older posts’ link underneath it.

    Does anyone know how I might remove that full width post preview, to just leave the grid below it?

    I’ve tried altering it using common sense, sifting through the code (as apposed to actually knowing how to code).

    Many thanks for any insight,
    colkav
