Note: The instructions below apply to most of our themes, but we do have a theme that displays blog posts a little differently and can't be adjusted per the steps below. If you don't see a widget called "Genesis - Featured Widget Amplified" or "Genesis Sandbox - Featured Content" in the location that the instructions below describe, then your theme works differently. In this case, just contact us at email@example.com and will help you adjust the blog posts.
