Remember that the main article is always the sticky post.

If you decide to use the “Home first widget area” to customize the flow of the articles, you must know that the layout will be the same as described above: two articles side by side and one horizontal.
Home page second & third widget areas
The articles in the second and third widget area are always arranged vertically, according to the following scheme: image highlights, title, summary, links to posts (if any).
Home page fourth widget area
The articles contained within this area are horizontally disposed, occupying the entire space of the central column, according to the following scheme: zoom out left and title and summary arranged to the left of the photo. In the case where the photograph is not present, the title and the summary will occupy all available horizontal space.
