    Hi there Karen

    I'll try help, but I might need some clarifications first.

    1) I'm not exactly sure what you mean by home page widget? I don't think I've added a widget called home page to Estate.

    2) This line separates the sidebar from the main content. If you're creating a page using Page Builder, then you might need to add the lines using custom CSS. If you give me a link to your site I can put you on the right track.

    Hi Greg - sorry! Here's link to my blog http://www.shotbykaren.co.uk (still in draft form) : new to this, so still putting things together.

    1) The widgets for the homepage (not "homepage widgets") - I was using the "post content" widget and it seems to only give me the option for a title OR content, not both (which is ideally what i would like to have).

    2) Ah right, i just added a column to make 2, rather than having the side bar on the homepage (which i don't want). If i can have the line *without* having the sidebar on the front page, then all good!

    3) Also - I cannot get the image to show using the "image" widget : I have copied and pasted the url from my flickr site into the image URL line, but not sure what goes in the image destination line?

    Cheers, K

    Hi Karen

    1) This widget isn't actually doing all that much, I'll probably remove it in a future update of Page Builder. If you're trying to add some content, then you'd be best off using the Black Studio's TinyMCE widget. This will let you create rich text content blocks.

    2) If you've created a static page as your home page, you can just select the full width template. It looks like you might have already done this though.

    3) The image destination is only required of you want the image to link out. If you just set the image URL, it should display properly. Make sure you've copied the URL of a jpg image from Flickr and that there isn't hotlink protection on the image. You're best off just uploading the image to your own server.

    Hope that helps :)

    Sorry - another question! On the pages, the "recent post" widget does not have a bullet list. When I add the recent posts widget on my homepage, it is bulleted ... can i change it to a NO BULLET list?

    Thanks
