To setup your homepage with this theme (and many other Genesis themes) all you have to do is add your content to the “Home” widget areas. Then go to Settings > Reading and select “Your latest posts“. You don’t need to set a frontpage or posts page since the home.php file will automatically become the homepage, and your blog page will be set by creating a page called “Blog” and selecting the “Blog” template.
We have a one question per thread policy (this helps us keep the threads organized and on one single topic) so if you have any other issues/questions please start a new thread and we’ll be glad to assist.
