I am using Minimum pro theme on my website. I want to create another home featured widget similar to the one that the theme supports with 4 column layout each supporting a widget. I want it to place just over my footer and under the posts section.
Can anyone please provide me with the code to do so?
Thanks in advance for your helpAugust 8, 2016 at 6:18 am #190905Victor FontModerator
This should get you started in the right direction. While I wrote it specifically for the News Pro theme, the same procedures apply to any Studio Press theme. http://victorfont.com/add-widget-areas-to-news-pro-theme/

Thanks a lot Victor for your help.
You have a great website, looks like you have some great content to help people like us there, I will be sure to visit your website when I am in need of some help relating to such topics.
But I am a complete newbie and I have not the slightest bit idea about coding, so if you can give me the exact code that I have to copy on my website, then it will be a great help.

Are you wanting same 4 columns widget areas at bottom? Or you will create one widget area and do the columns effect by CSS?

I want the same columns widget at the bottom, exactly the same way that the theme offers.

Add this in your functions.php file
genesis_register_sidebar( array( 'id' => 'home-bottom-1', 'name' => __( 'Home Bottom 1', 'minimum' ), 'description' => __( 'This is the home bottom 1 section.', 'minimum' ), ) ); genesis_register_sidebar( array( 'id' => 'home-bottom-2', 'name' => __( 'Home Bottom 2', 'minimum' ), 'description' => __( 'This is the home bottom 2 section.', 'minimum' ), ) ); genesis_register_sidebar( array( 'id' => 'home-bottom-3', 'name' => __( 'Home Bottom 3', 'minimum' ), 'description' => __( 'This is the home bottom 3 section.', 'minimum' ), ) ); genesis_register_sidebar( array( 'id' => 'home-bottom-4', 'name' => __( 'Home Bottom 4', 'minimum' ), 'description' => __( 'This is the home bottom 4 section.', 'minimum' ), ) );
Copy the code from here http://pastebin.com/4t2JRxcP and replace the full code of front-page.php file with this new one.
Note: Before editing the files you will keep a backup of your theme.

Genesis Developer, after your much sought out help I was able to replicate the home featured widget area that the Minimum Pro theme offers and was able to place it just above the footer and it is working just fine.
The problem is however with the spacing above the new widget area. As with the 'home featured widget' area, the area is enclosed in a box and has enough spacing between the site tagline and the posts section but the new widget area that we replicated known as 'home bottom widget' has no spacing above it, it is very close to the pagination tab below the posts but has enough space below the area as you can see here : http://motivationpedia.com/ after scrolling to the bottom below the posts section.
I just want to increase the space between the widget top and the the pagination tab (below the posts section) so it looks evenly spaced from the bottom and the top.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.October 27, 2018 at 6:15 am #224016zomParticipant
I would like to increment the "home featured" widget area by one row. That is a little different than applying a row of widgets immediately AFTER posts or static content. I use static content so that my home page looks like http://taiji-online.co.uk. I tried adding a 5th "Home Featured" widget in functions.php and a widget area shows up on my widgets page, but when I populate "home featured 5", the widget does not render on my home page. Do I have to additionally define a new home featured "row" in front-page.php and assign CSS for each new widget?October 31, 2018 at 5:07 am #224089zomParticipant

Yup. You do!
