    Hi, how can I get my home page to look like the one in the demo? I can’t see any options to customise the homepage currently.

    The blog I need help with is: delightcopywriting.com

    Hi there,

    I see you have a front page set, you don’t need that with Carbon. Please head to your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Reading, and set “Your homepage displays” to “Your Latest Posts”.

    That should bring the header and blog posts in line on the homepage. Further ahead you can also add widgets in the sidebar and customize the layouts under Appearance > Customize > Theme Options.

    Let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

    Many thanks, that was a big help! Could I also ask, is there any way to get rid of the big white sidebar on the portfolio page? Or am I supposed to fill that with a widget (if so how is this done)?

    Hello again,

    To fill the widgets, you can just head to Appearance > Widgets, and drop the widgets under “Main Sidebar” area.

    If you want to hide it completely, try adding the following CSS:

    .post-type-archive-jetpack-portfolio .widget-area {
        display: none;
    }
    
    .post-type-archive-jetpack-portfolio .content-area {
        float: none;
        width: 100%;
    }
