      In a past version of the theme (1.2 or 1.3 I can’t remember) I was able to add code to the home.php file to get the grid loop to show the last ten post on the home page.

      I inserted the following code below home-feature-14

      It doesn’t seem to work with front-page.php

      Any advice?

      remove_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘genesis_do_loop’ );
      add_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘eleven40_grid_loop_helper’ );
      /** Add support for Genesis Grid Loop */
      function eleven40_grid_loop_helper() {

      if ( function_exists( ‘genesis_grid_loop’ ) ) {

      genesis_grid_loop( array(
      ‘features’ => 0,
      ‘feature_image_size’ => 0,
      ‘feature_image_class’ => ‘alignleft post-image’,
      ‘feature_content_limit’ => 0,
      ‘grid_image_size’ => ‘grid-thumbnail’,
      ‘grid_image_class’ => ‘alignnone’,
      ‘grid_content_limit’ => 250,
      ‘more’ => __( ‘[Read more…]’, ‘genesis’ ),
      ) );
      } else {



        If you’re using the latest version of the theme then the option to have the blog posts show up at the end is already available as an option.

        The code to make it happen is much more complex than the grid loop code you added above, but the new version gives you the option to turn it on or off by checking a box. You can find that option in the Customize > Front Page Content Settings page.

        Also, they’re using front-page.php now for the home page files.

          I would like to keep the static home page than then put the latest content at the bottom. It doesn’t appear that I can do both with the new version of the theme.

          Is that correct?


            With the latest version of Epik, you do have the option to add the Latest Blog posts under your Homepage Widgets (using the Customizer @eric mentioned above). Here’s what it looks like when you select that option –
