As you can imagine, I am frantically trying to rebuild my home page. Somehow I am no longer able to disable the primary sidebar in the Theme Settings. I also have no options available under Theme Settings, Default Layout. It just says "Select Default Layout" but there is nothing to select... no options.
I don't want to rebuild this entire home page and find out that this theme is broken and I will not be able to remove the sidebar.http://www.agilesocks.comJuly 3, 2022 at 12:01 am #505490
Once you populate the front page widget areas, the front page displays full width without a sidebar.

I rebuilt the home page, and there no widgets in the Primary Sidebar area, and it still shows a white space to the right when the home page loads. It no longer looks well-designed, and the content is more pushed to the left than it used to be. This leads to it not looking centered. This shows up on other pages too, but it's more obvious and impactful on the home page.
I don't understand why I no longer have the option to change the Default Layout for the Theme Settings. Is there code I can use to fix this and remove the sidebar, ideally across the whole site, but immediate need is the Home Page?July 3, 2022 at 9:54 am #505493
I also have this question on a WordPress forum, and they are saying that since this theme is out of support, I will probably have to just switch themes. I don't recall getting any communication that Parallax Pro would no longer be supported. Are there instructions about what would be a similar theme it would be easiest to migrate to without issues? Obviously, I want a fix for this issue ASAP, so my business is not impacted. But I also want to look to the future and migrate to a new theme... but I don't have to figure out how to rebuild my entire website with a theme that doesn't work similarly.July 4, 2022 at 8:31 pm #505502July 4, 2022 at 8:37 pm #505503
Child themes aren't generally updated so it should work as long as Genesis is up to date with WordPress.
When i test the latest version, it works fine. There's no issue with the home page layout.
Maybe something else is causing a problem.

It doesn't look like I can include a screenshot here. But basically, neither of these options work. The first option is the way it "should" normally work, but I don't have any options available to "Select Default Layout." Literally just a blank drop-down box with no options.
I tried using the code in the second option you sent. I edited the Theme file, and it still doesnt' seem to work.
I appreciate the resources. Still trying to figure this out. I'm wondering if there is code that doesn't just force full width but specifically sets to "one column site layout" since that is the setting that seems to be broken in the theme.July 5, 2022 at 7:04 am #505508
Are your Reading Settings set to display your latest posts?
I don't see the full-width-content body class when i inspect the page but i do i do see a landing page class which means you're using the landing page template.

I did find code on this page that I think is supposed to remove page layouts. It also unfortunately didn't work.... (sigh)July 5, 2022 at 7:50 am #505510
Maybe there is a different spot I need to put the code for full width content? I put it in the Parallax Pro Theme Functions file at the bottom.
add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', '__genesis_return_full_width_content' );
I'm not sure what you mean by Reading Settings to display my latest posts. I've designed the Home Page using widgets. The only posts that show up on my home page are in a widget that uses a plug-in WP Tiles. The extra space on the right was there before I re-activated that plug-in.July 5, 2022 at 8:14 am #505511
Check in your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Reading > Your homepage displays > Your latest posts

No, I don't have it set up that way. I have my home page set as a static page called "Home", and this is how it was before.
But this did lead to me see if there was anything I could manipulate in the settings of the Home Page, and I added "full-width-content" to the Custom Body Class field.
And it worked! Thank you so much!July 5, 2022 at 8:44 am #505513
Clever! But, i think it would also work if you used the default Reading settings which activates the full width front page template.

It no longer has a sleek appearance.

This makes it appear off-center.
