Homepage CSS

The world homepage is a good target for a special layout as it is different from all other pages. The code snippets below are intended to either be used as-is or to make minor adjustments to fit your needs. They either do common tasks or something very specific that is useful to many people. Always read the orange information boxes within the spoilers as they explain any extra steps necessary. Otherwise, you can just copy the code into your world's CSS.
  Before reading this you should first check out the general world homepage customization guide to explore the options available with settings.
  All examples in this article will only affect the world homepage as they include selectors unique to the homepage. You can ensure that your own CSS is only applied to the homepage by applying the code below.

IMPORTANT: Copying this code will not copy the -signs. You have to write them in manually afterwards. And you need to replace [{] with { at the end of the media line. Play with the numbers behind top and left to position the widget. The media part ensures that it is only moved on big screens. If you wish to move it on smaller screens as well you need to adapt the numbers.

My category content panel and recent/featured articles stopped appearing on my homepage. I came here to see if I could get them to show up again but this only gives command to hide. Does anyone know how to get these to reappear?
