Most themes support only one layout. The Genesis theme is different — it supports seven different layouts, straight out of the box.

View the Setting up the Layout and Width video tutorial.

To change the layout all you need to do is:

  1. Open the page.tpl.php file in your sub-theme (all sub-themes have a page.tpl.php).
  2. Change the body ID selector. For example <body id="genesis_1">, see layout.css.
  3. Save, upload, refresh, done.

Screen shots of all the layouts

The label above each layout is the id selector. This is all covered in great detail in layout.css in the base theme.
