    Is this page static or a post page?

    mine is static home page.

    And mine is a static homepage too.

    Since your pages are static you should be able to go to the “Pages” then select the static homepage of your site. On the right just select the page template you want. Here is a link to a screen shot of the template selector.

    Yes I thought it would have been that easy as well. Though my home page does not show up in pages or in posts. here is my home page. http://www.globallingos.com. I must be missing something here. I do have 3 posts as part of the home page. Does that change things? Thanks so much paul!

    This is a post page, hence the posts on the page. 🙂 If this is the page you want to edit then you are not actually using a static front page. For this you will need to edit a php file which is a little scary but this is really an easy fix. Go to “Appearance” then “Editor” then select Pinboard in the top right drop down menu. Find the file “index.php” Find and remove the following code. It should be towards the end. This should remove the sidebar from the landing page even if it has widgets in the sidebar.

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    Hi Paul, *ahumm* my homepage is a postpage as well 😉

    I deleted the code you mentioned and the sidebar-widgets doesn’t show.

    But it looks like if the sidebar isn’t completely removed from the landingpage. The sidebar accounts for 1 column from the grid (even though the sidebar doesn’t appear).

    With ‘full width’ the homepage shows 3 post on a horizontal row. After removing the ‘get_sidebar’-code the 3rd post jumps below the 2 other posts. If I change the grid layout dimensions to 4 content columns, there is still an empty white space on the right side (where the sidebar-widgets could appear).

    Any suggestions for the 3 post I want to show on my homepage?

    Yeah this is an easy fix just add a little css but I need a link to your site to correctly do this. For 3 columns you just need to add the following.

    .twothirdcol {
    width: 100%;
    }

    I would assume its something similar for 4 columns, but I can’t be sure without the link.

    Where do I need to add this little CSS code? Somewhere in the index.php?

    Download Jet pack (should be on your dashboard) and activate the custom css editor. Then under “appearance” you will see “Edit Css” just paste the above code in there and it will override the current css settings for whatever you pasted in there.

    Thanks Paul. I pasted the code there.

    I guess we are almost there: but now the 2 posts appear on one entire (!) row. And the 3rd on the row below. I would like the 3 posts next to eachother 🙂

    Should ‘twothirdcol’ be threethirdcol or something?

    Yeah it might be I need a link to your site to make sure as I said before 🙂

    Never mind I looked it up. Here is what you need

    .threefourthcol {
    width: 100%;
    }

    Cheers!
