    Hi There!
    Thanks for the awesome theme! I am trying to customize the HOMEPAGE to look as close to this as possible - http://osomaloso.com/old-site/
    Please note that the internal pages are just fine the way they are.

    Here is the WP site that I am working on - http://osomaloso.com/
    1. How can I get to the homepage within the dashboard to edit it? I am using the most recent posts as my homepage. (Or in the code if I dashboard is not an option)

    2. How can I remove the right sidebar with Recent Posts, Recent Comments, Archives, Search bar, etc from the HOMEPAGE ONLY?

    3. I want to add a twitter feed and email signup in the footer.

    Thanks a bunch for your help!!!

    Best Regards,
    Deidre

    1. You can't really edit the homepage, but if it's set to show your latest posts, some of them will be shown in the "featured" section. Please refer to the readme.txt FAQ section about setting posts as featured.

    2. You can remove all the widgets from your sidebar to remove them completely from all pages and have a one-column layout. However, if you'd like to remove them on the home page only, you'll have to add some CSS (using a Custom CSS plugin or a child theme) to hide the sidebar. Here's a quick example:

    .home #secondary { display: none; }

    3. There are no widget areas in the footer of the theme, but you can add some with a child theme by overriding the footer.php template. You can get a Twitter feed widget with a plugin, for example Jetpack.

    Hope that helps!
