Adding Widgets to Homepage

  1. Hello,

    How would I add widgets (i.e. Archives and Search Bar) so that they only appear on my homepage?
    At the moment they're only appearing on my static pages (e.g. 'About' page) and I don't really see the point of having these here.

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks,

    Mieke

    The blog I need help with is hellomieke.wordpress.com.

  2. You would have to select a theme that is designed to display widgets only on the front page. This might help you select another theme > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/02/26/sidebars-and-other-widget-areas/

  3. Rats! I just noticed this is a CSS editing question. This thread will be moved to the CSS forum for you.

  4. Here's one possible example you can use to get started. It will hide the sidebar and expand the main content area for all pages of the Blissful Blog theme and then add back the sidebar and set the content width accordingly just for the home page only:

    .row .four {
        display: none;
    }
    .row .eight {
    	width: 100%;
    }
    .home .row .four {
        display: block;
        width: 30.37%;
    }
    .home .row .eight {
    	width: 65.2%;
    }
