    Hi Bill,
    On your United demo, under the slider, you have a widget box for the “latest message”. I would like to have a bible verse in this space. I tried a text widget using a

    ( I would like to have the blockquote graphic/image show), but the text widget stays in a small boxed area. See current home page http://cfbclighthouse.org/
    I currently have the text widget at the bottom. I can move it up but it stays in a small area justified to one side.

    How can I get this text widget or by using some other method to show a bible verse in that area under the slider?

    Thanks.

    Good Morning Steve,

    Great question there. If you think of the home page as being made up of three columns, most widgets will occupy just one column. That’s the default. The latest message widget takes up three and the contact widget takes up two.

    You can make all the widgets take up three columns. Here’s how to do that:

    1. Go to your theme options page and choose the Advanced tab.
    2. Scroll down to the Custom CSS box and add this:
      
      #home-widgets .widget {
      	float: none;
      	width: 100%;
      }
      
    3. Update your settings.

    If you’d rather only make your text widgets full width, here’s how to do that:

    1. Go to your theme options page and choose the Advanced tab.
    2. Scroll down to the Custom CSS box and add this:
      
      #home-widgets .widget_text {
      	float: none;
      	width: 100%;
      }
      
    3. Update your settings.

    If you have any questions, just let me know.

    Have a great week,
    Bill

    Thanks Bill… however, I like the layout with “location and time” taking 2 columns and the “welcome” which is a text widget taking one column. If I make the text widgets full width then I lose the 1 column welcome area.

    I guess I could just place it in the template itself??
    I suppose in the templates/page-home.php??

    Each widget has a unique ID that you can use to style it separately from all the others. You could use this to style the one with your block quote only:

    
    #home-widgets #text-3 {
    	float: none;
    	width: 100%;
    }
    

    See if that doesn’t let you have both sizes of text widgets.
