This post for beginners answers this forum question with one solution:
I would like a full-width homepage in Lifestyle Pro without any sidebars. I want to remove the regular sidebar.
Go to Line 20 of the Lifestyle Pro themes front-page.php file and change the line of code from this:
// Force content-sidebar layout setting add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', '__genesis_return_content_sidebar' );
// Force full width layout setting add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', '__genesis_return_full_width_content' );
Here’s the before and after shots showing the difference after changing the code for the layout setting.
