How to adjust the post/page layout

September 1, 2013

You are able to choose the page layout you’d like to have across your site either to cover the entire site, or you can choose on a per page basis.  The layout options you have available are:

Choose for your entire site

In order to choose the layout option you’d like that covers the entirety of your site, you’ll navigate to GENESIS > THEME SETTINGS.  Once there you’ll scroll down to the DEFAULT LAYOUT box where you’ll see this:

You can simply click on the option you’d like from these little screen icons.

Please note that in some of our themes we force a specific layout option on the home page occasionally for structural reasons.  If you are making changes here that aren’t affecting your home page or a custom page template on your site, it’s because it’s been forced to appear that way.

Choose per page, post, or product

If you’d like to have most of your site one layout but you’d like a specific page or post to appear differently, you can do that as well.  A great example of this is you want all your blog posts to have the content/sidebar format, but you want a lot of your pages to be full width.  You can see this displayed through our own site.

To do this, navigate to PAGES/POSTS > EDIT the page/posts you’d like to change.  Once there scroll down a little bit until you see the LAYOUT SETTINGS and you’ll simply click the option you’d like from the little screen icons.

If you are not seeing this box when editing a page or post, scroll all the way to the top and select SCREEN OPTIONS in that tab at the very top right corner of your screen.  It will drop down and you’ll just be sure the LAYOUT SETTINGS option has a checkmark next to it.  Now you’ll have that option available.
