    My homepage (http://www.katiesonger.com) is very simple, which means that the sidebar is much longer than the text. It’s okay to have a long sidebar on all the other pages, but it looks bad on the homepage. Is it possible to have a different sidebar on the homepage, or does it have to be the same on all the pages? The ideal would be to move some of the sidebar widgets beneath the text on the homepage, but keep the sidebar in its current form on all the other pages. Thanks!

    Hello Katie,

    The sidebar will the same for all pages so you will not be able to customize the slider based on the pages. However, there is a way that might help you- You can remove the sidebar from the homepage.

    Hope this helps!

    Have a great day ahead!

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi ProDesigns Team,

    That might help. Can you tell me how to remove the sidebar from the homepage? I looked for this option in Customize, but didn’t find it.

    Thanks,

    3) Paste the below code in “Additional CSS”

    width:100%
    }

    Hi ProDesigns,

    Thanks for this code. But when I pasted it, it didn’t make the sidebar disappear from the home page–instead, it moved the sidebar so that it was below the main content area. Also, this change occurred not only on the home page, but on all pages. Is there a different code I should use?

    Thanks,
    Katie

    }
    .home .main-sidebar{
    display:none;
    }

    Hope this helps.

    have a great day ahead!

    Hi ProDesigns Team,

    Thanks–this worked better, but there is still a problem. The code you sent does remove the sidebar from the homepage; thank you. However, as I mentioned, I do need the widgets in the sidebar to display on the homepage; I am just wondering if they can display *differently*, not disappear altogether. So for example, I’m wondering if it’s possible to create an alternative sidebar on the homepage, and if that is possible, how I can do it. I could either create an alternative sidebar with fewer widgets, or I could create a sidebar that displays as a second footer, so there would be room for all the widgets. But I would only want this alternative sidebar to display on the homepage, not the other pages. Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Katie

    Hello Katie,

    Hope you are doing good!

    Yes, it is possible. For that, you need to create a child theme and it requires additional coding in it.
    Please let us know in case you would like us to create it for you so that I can share with you the required time and cost for the same.

    Have a great day ahead!

    Hi ProDesigns,

    Sure, please let me know how much it would cost for this coding. In the meantime, I have already created a child theme.

    Thanks,
