Well, I tried. After several hours of trial and error, error, and error, I still can’t figure out how to move home home-featured-sidebar and home-bottom-sidebar from the left side of the (desktop) page (and showing first in mobile) to the right side of the (desktop) page and showing after home-feature-section (top sections) or home-feature-posts (bottom section) in mobile.
Basically, I tried to move lines 49-53 of home.php to after line 69, then make the proper adjustments to the code, but could never get it to work.
Can you give me any guidance on what I should do there?
As a ‘feature request’ it would be cool if you had home page layout option, which allowed a person to optionally select where/how they wanted the home page components layed out. Just a thought.
Appreciate the assistance. Have a great day!April 25, 2013 at 11:09 pm #4282scoobyCustomer
That section is wrapped in div’s on the home.php file, so I’d recommend you double check to make sure you’re moving everything correctly. Also, don’t forget you’ll need to go through and adjust all of the css to handle what you’re trying to do as well.
If you still can’t figure it out, I’d recommend you hire a developer to do this for you since it is considered a customization. Creating the code for you here in the forums goes beyond the scope of support, but you can easily hire someone to create the code for you. Any developer should be able to do this.
Before you hire anybody, first make sure you placed everything in the right place, and have created or adjusted all of the areas of your css to match the design you want. Other than that, just hire someone and let them deal with it……thats what I do 🙂April 26, 2013 at 12:12 pm #4322kronosCustomer

It would be cool, but that would definitely need to be a plugin, not a theme feature. Wes (and StudioPress) are known for keeping Themes simple, adding functionality like that would make them become way too bloated.
I personally like Genesis for the fact that its simple without a ton of bloated unnecessary options like Thesis, Woothemes and other frameworks. The child theme should only be a functions file, css, images, and maybe one or two other files, maybe. Anything beyond that should be created with a plugin in my opinion. Just do a Google search for – “bloated wordpress themes” and you’ll understand where I’m coming from.
I don’t know, maybe I’m just old school :pApril 26, 2013 at 2:21 pm #4323scoobyCustomer
If only there was a plugin that worked like gravity forms (with the drag and drop features) that could be used to move the layout around like that. Now that would be awesome! …..I’m sure it would be extremely complicated to create, but heh, you never know. It could happenApril 28, 2013 at 7:14 pm #4393
