A one time fee is great. I went through and watched a few of the ACF Pro videos. I can't wait to try it out.

Yes, I have to do similar set-ups quite often. It will take a little extra time, since it is your first time using it. After that you will be using ACF all of the time.
Setting up the field is pretty quick. Writing the code will take a little more time. Here is some documentation on outputting the images: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/image/

I assume you are trying to output an image outside of the text editor - above the content but below the header. A good solution for this may be Advanced Custom Fields. This would allow you to create an image setting for all of the pages. Then you would output the contents of the image field directly below the header using the genesis_after_header hook.

Here is a link to the StudioPress snippets section regarding the author box: https://my.studiopress.com/snippets/author-box/

In regards to StudioPress themes, about the closest thing I can think of is the Showcase theme. It has functionality that displays team member photos, and it displays the person's name once you hover over the photo. But it doesn't appear to display anything else until you click through to the person's page.

You can try using less text widgets. I typically put most of my text in one widget, and If I need additional headings, I add the headings to the text widget along with the text.
March 1, 2016 at 10:56 pm in reply to: (Digital Pro) why social media icon in the footer does not appear #180405
I assume you are using Simple Social Icons. I think this plugin uses font icons. If the font isn't available for some reason, I think items are replaced with squares. You could try removing and re-adding the plugin. If that doesn't work, maybe it could be a plugin conflict. Or if you are running a caching plugin, maybe it is interfering with the icons working properly.

Thank you! I wasn't sure of a good way to handle it for client sites. It appears that the options page is an AFC Pro feature. I plan to purchase the Pro version soon. I have been using the free version.
I typically hard-code a lot of items on my personal site as well, since I am the only one who maintains it.

No problem. I noticed that you are using a custom post type archive for the project area. How did you set the top portion of the page - heading and preview text? Did you create some type of settings page or hard-code these items into the theme? I often use Advanced Custom Fields to attain settings from pages or posts. But I really don't know how to set custom settings for an archive.
March 1, 2016 at 2:46 pm in reply to: Adding sections to Altitude home page #180370
The home page template uses a conditional statement to test whether widgets are active. If they are not active, it will not output any of the necessary HTML or functionality. A possible solution is to add text widgets to each area, but rather than adding text, you could add a space character. This will force the sections to show, and they will be empty. The space character is below.
March 1, 2016 at 2:14 pm in reply to: Make my homepage a landing page w/ Metro Pro #180366
The theme has a home page template called front-page.php. You would need to convert this template into a landing page.
Or you could rename front-page.php, so WP no longer recognizes it as the front page template (back the file up in case you need it later). Then designate the landing page as the front page. To do this you would go to Settings->Reading->Front page displays and set the landing page as the "Front Page". The landing page being the page that has the landing page template applied to it.

No problem. I haven't tried Design Palette Pro. I will have to check it out.

I think it looks great. Nice clean design.
February 26, 2016 at 11:34 pm in reply to: Theme: No sidebar, how can I add a sidebar? #180045
I think that is the point to this particular theme (no sidebar). It only has a layout setting of full-width. So it doesn't have the capability built in to have a sidebar. In order to have a sidebar the theme would need to have more layout settings available such as content-sidebar, sidebar-content, etc...
February 26, 2016 at 11:25 pm in reply to: How can I make these images and text look right? #180041
The text is likely wrapping around the image in responsive mode, because the items aren't in block level elements. Try putting the image and/or the text within a block level element such as a paragraph or div tag. Another options is to put a <br> tag after the image.
February 26, 2016 at 11:15 pm in reply to: Reduce space beneath images? #180038
Your images are within paragraph tags along with Two <br> statements and text. And there is only a 20px bottom margin applied to the paragraph tags. The reason you have a lot of space below each image / text is that you have empty paragraph tags below each one creating an additional 20px margin. Something within the editor is causing WordPress to create additional empty paragraph tags on the front-end, maybe the <br> statements?

No problem. Have a good weekend.
February 26, 2016 at 10:20 pm in reply to: Daily dish blog post length #180035
Make sure to set the "Display" to "entry content". Then try setting the "Limit content to" to 0 or empty.
February 26, 2016 at 2:39 pm in reply to: Daily dish blog post length #180006
I haven't used this theme. But I assume you are referring to using your home page as a blog rather than using sidebar widget areas. Try the following:
In your dashboard, go to Genesis --> Theme Settings --> Content Archives
From here set the necessary settings - content length, thumbnail, etc...

In addition to the global layout settings, there are also layout settings for each page, post, category, etc... - these settings over ride the global settings.
You can change the layout settings for a category by going to Posts-->Categories. Then click edit for the category you want to edit. The layout settings will display on the edit page.
Or you can get to the category layout settings by clicking edit on the admin bar while viewing the category from the front end while logged in.
