Firstof all this is an awesome theme, just amazing. I would like to have some posts through on the home page. I appreciate this is probably beyond the normal request. I want to show 2-4 posts in an widget area (full width) but not sure how to add the grip loop into the home page.php to achieve this.
This may be beyond the normal request but appreciate any help or alternatives. Tried to add through widget but the post end up being cramped into a small column on the left side of the widget area. I am trying to get either a two column layout or single column in a full width widget area. Any help or a steer appreciated.April 13, 2013 at 8:57 am #3797
Why can’t you add them with something like a “recent posts” widget and simply choose, either one of the full width sections or simply edit the CSS to style the widget location you’re putting them in, to give a greater % share of the width? Don’t forget that you have to have them all add up to about 98% I think it is (Wes?) They will all be styled as the CSS directs so you will also need to add 2 widgets in a 2x widget section, or 3 in a 3x section, or they will all shift to the left unless you change the CSS ~ if you look at “/* 07a – Welcome Feature 1-3 ———– */” about line #1269, you will see how they are being styled.

thanks for pointing me in the right direction – much appreciated.
I have used the plugin but I can’t seem to get a grip on which CSS to use to style for this. I am trying to style just for this widget areas as opposed to make a complete rule change. Do you know how to order css for a widget area at all?
you can see the result so far on http://www.garyfox.co.ukApril 13, 2013 at 1:59 pm #3806
The widget areas are clearly identified in the area of the line # reference I gave you.
You’ll need to install Firebug in your browser or use your right click browser’s development tools to see what’s going on.
For example, using the dev tools in Firefox I can see you are using “.home-feature-4”. Unless you want to get into totally redesigning the way the CSS styles the homepage, which I don’t recommend, I suggest you look for one of the widget entries that suits the type of content you’re trying to display.
If you don’t put anything in the widget location it won’t display, so just jump down to the one that best suits.April 13, 2013 at 2:15 pm #3808
