To configure the widget, click the title bar to open it if necessary, then add a title and text as desired.
In the Genesis settings, you can select your default layout for pages. One of these options is a page with sidebar. This sidebar is the Primary Sidebar. If you selection is page without sidebar, you can switch to page with sidebar on any page. This option is below the text editor.
