I have been working on my first website based on the Genesis Framework for the whole past week.
As a result, I have created my blog called redinvasion.com using functions.php and style.css.
Then I have decided to add a nice looking Landing Page using the Front-page.php file with the custom Front-page.css style.
This required me to add a number of conditions to functions.php that allow appear or dissapear of various types of elements that apply only to Front-page.css (like my blog has content-sidebar design, but my front-page.php has full width design).
So, once the Landing Page is created and customized - how do I access my original blog with the original custom design (without the styles linked to Front-Page.php and without that Front-page.php itself......)???
I just don't get it..... Thanks!http://redinvasion.com
Hi there, I'm trying to understand the question.
To create a separate landing page full-width, do this:
To have a separate landing page - create a new Page named Home or Front or whatever. Go to Settings -> Reading and select the new Page(Home or Front or whatever) from the Front Page setting. Go to the Home page (or Front or whatever) and under layout, select "full page width". Then add your content as you wish.
Then Create a new Blog Page (name it Blog or News or whatever) and in Settings -> Reading select Blog as the blog posts page. Add the new Blog page to the Navigation menu (Appearance >> Menus) so that you can click to get there. Then go to the Blog page, select "Blog Template" under the Page Template section (right hand of the Page edit screen). Sometimes it is called "Blog Page". Anything written on this page will NOT show up - this page will now oNLY display your blog posts. Go to the front of your blog to test the Blog link - it should show a list of posts.
Even if you used the functions file to create a new landing page, you should still be able to link to it, from the navigation.
Let me know if that answers the question?
Thanks for the explanation. I'm clear on this now.
