Learn how to set the design with the sidebar on the left as the default layout in a Genesis Framework child theme using code.
Genesis offers 6 different template models depending on how you combine the content with the primary and secondary sidebars.
In addition, this platform allows you to choose which format to use by default from the WordPress customizer.
However, you may find it useful to select a different layout depending on the type of entry.
For example, do you want your pages and portfolio to have a full width layout while your blog posts show a left sidebar by default?
With Genesis you can do this easily.

If you prefer, you can also choose the layouts with 2 sidebars as a predefined option.
Use the code above to get the layout design with the sidebar to the left of the content to be used by default in the type of entry or page you want within any Genesis child theme.
