In the members-only forum a user asked,
I've been trying to figure out how to have a home page with both a custom loop and widget areas. I want to use Advanced Custom Fields for several areas on the home page, to make it easier for my clients. I found code for doing that, but I’m not sure if I can also have widgetized areas on the page, which I'd need for using a couple of plugins.
In this tutorial I share a custom front page template in Genesis that displays
a) the content of Page set as static front page in WordPress settings
b) a widget area
c) several rows of (user specified number of) custom Text and Image layouts added in a Advanced Custom Field Pro's Flexible Content field.
