I'm brand new to blog pages and formatting such. I've tried to go through as much online research plus trial and error as I can, but I'm not sure where to look.
My blog page is set up for two columns. The right column has author data, Find Us, Search, and what looks like post clips. Victims Relief, Inc.
We are an online site only and do not want the Find Us data shown. We don't care about author information. In fact we don't even allow discussions on our blogs so we're not trying to gather reader information.
What I do want is the title and a short excerpt for each blog post.
How do i do that?http://victimsreliefinc.com/blogDecember 2, 2019 at 4:44 pm #495173
That is called the Primary Sidebar and can be found under Appearance > Widgets. You would drag the widgets out of there. If you do not require the Primary Sidebar at all, you can go to the Genesis > Theme Setting > Layout and set the site for full-width layout.
I would suggest you log in to your my.studiopress.com account and download/open the Genesis for Beginner's PDF file to familiarize yourself with how to use Genesis and your child theme.

Thank you. Just what I was looking for. It answers a lot of my questions.
There is one question it didn't answer on where to find the Archive Template. The instructions don't work, but I'll post that as a new topic.December 3, 2019 at 2:21 pm #495200
The archive.php file (template) was removed from new child theme installations in 3.0 - https://studiopress.github.io/genesis/changelog/. They haven't updated Genesis for Beginners to reflect that update yet. If you would like to use it, you will copy that file and add it to the themes folder.

Sorry for opening a new thread. I've been jumped on before for asking a new question after the initial one was answered within the same thread. I was told (elsewhere) that I should ask a new question in a new thread.
I copied the archive.php file into the altitude-pro folder in my wordpress site. That's the folder the other templates are in. When I opened a new page to set it as archive, it still doesn't show it available. Is there something I need to do to "install" it or at least let the system know it's there? Do I need to add it's name as a line inside another file?
