I have three block widgets on my home page. I would like to add another widget below those three, but would like to add text that spans the width of entire 960px page instead of having it be the same size as the others. Is there a way to do this or will changing the size of one widget affect other occurrences? Not sure of a work around if so.
Looking at the picture there, it looks like that may be an older version of the theme. If it is you could just edit it directly. Edit the page-home.php file. Add this:
right above this:
<?php get_footer(); ?>
and save your changes. That will add in the content that’s entered into the page’s content area below the widgets for you. That way it’ll be easy to edit the content there in the future. Since div’s are full width by default anyway, it should give you a full width area to work with there.
