How can i have two columns on the homepage (without static page) ?

  • Mediacleg



    Is it possible to display posts on the homepage on two columns under the slider and the sticky posts, rather than on only one as it is set by default ?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    It is possible to do this (I think) via some custom CSS.

    If I’m not mistaken, this has been discussed in here a little while ago, or something similar to it. Take a look around the forum and see if you can find it. It may be what you are looking for.

    This is easiest done using the functions.php file in your child theme. See this topic:




    I think they meant something like a two-column, magazine-style. If I understand correctly, this is what they are going for…

    –> Full size slider

    –> Full size sticky posts

    –> Two column homepage panes

    (while NOT using a static front page)??

    I think you are right. Easy with a static home page. I have no idea what their objection is to that.

    Homepage panes make it simple. It’s the sticky posts that are the real issue, I think.

    When using homepage panes, do the sticky’s still show at the top? If so, perhaps some custom css could be applied to them and “force” them to be full content width. Then just leave the non-sticky panes alone??

    But you could probably use a PHP widget inside an action hook widget area to grab just the sticky posts and through them in there. It would be like a little tiny part of the loop tucked inside the actual loop.



    Ahh yes. I am seeing the light.

    Okay, since I don’t want to do this on my site, we’ll wait for the original poster to come along.

    Yeah, whatever happened to that guy?



    Hello, I’m back !

    I’m going to try to explain the situation, even if english is not my usual language… 🙂

    “–> Full size slider

    –> Full size sticky posts

    –> Two column homepage panes”

    Yes, it’s that I want.

    In fact, even if the sticky posts can’t be displayed in this way, the problem i have with a static page is that I would like a page like that :

    Full size slider

    Two column homepage panes

    But now, if i configure a static page, as “home”, the content of the page “Home” is visible before the two columns panes. Or i don’t have any content to put in “Home”.

    Moreover, in the columns,i want the thumbnails to go under the title and now they are above it.

    I don’t know if you see ?
