I found this tutorial here:
But I still had problems with display issues so I contacted support direct and they were very helpful, but it's really not ok that this very basic function is such a royal P.I.A.
I'd let them know you're not pleased. Support on these forums is weak.
Sorted... thank youApril 12, 2013 at 10:45 am in reply to: Modern Portfolio Adding new widget areas and jump to's #35022
I've read quite a few posts on this and I felt this one really spelled it out for me. Hope it helps you.
Now I wish someone would help me... the support for studiopress is atrocious. I feel like it's gotten worse.
Thanks, it would seem that it should be easier to contact you guys for a problem, don't you think?
Yeah, I can access that page but there is nothing on it that implies it's for members. I've been a member for a pro theme pack member for couple of years and have always been able to access all themes.
Here's a screenshot of what I see when I go to the page you mentioned:
Well if it's so simple, how would you change it... cause I sure don't see it.January 12, 2013 at 8:51 pm in reply to: Featured area on home education theme not clearing #11530
I just figured out what is happening but it's still a problem. it seems that, if I take a couple of lines away from one of the featured post excerpt, the widget moves over when shrinking the window. However, this would them make the featured area text excerpts all uneven. I wan them to all be the same length as they are now.
I finally got this working but it seems like an awful lot of trouble to do something seemingly common... upload your log0 and use the site description. Pretty common stuff.
I ended up not using the "site description for the tagline. I unchecked that in the header section of the admin panel. I then addited my tagline (site description to that div and styled it. Here's the code that I put in the simple hooks header section to do that:
<a href="http://client-mockups.venturi-web-design.com/arborscape/"><img src="http://client-mockups.venturi-web-design.com/arborscape/wp-content/themes/education/images/green/logo.jpg"/> </a>
<div id="tagline">Landscaping / Tree Service - Chappaqua NY, Bedford, Armonk & More...</div>
Not happy at all with this solution.
Yep, I use the Yoast plugin too. My personal experience has been from a few days to about a week before the image shows in the serps. One interesting thing I know of is that sometimes if the image in your G+ profile is of poor resolution, it might validate in the rich snippet tool but never show in the SERPS. I saw this happen on site that didn't sow the image for a month until the image was upgraded to higher res.
Thanks, there werent' extra quotes... just the wrong kinds. Had a mix of curly quotes and straight. Regardless, it's still not the desired result. How am I going to get the site description above the logo like it's supposed to be?
Thanks, I did what you suggested but no dice.
Here's what I added:
<a href=”http://client-mockups.venturi-web-design.com/arborscape/”><img src=”http://client-mockups.venturi-web-design.com/arborscape/wp-content/themes/education/images/green/logo.jpg”/></a>
I even tried adding the closing img "/" you didn't include in your example.
Thanks but that post was quite incoherent. I got nothing from it.
I'm not sure if Susan is referring to what you're asking. If I understand correctly... in the admin panel, go to > Genesis > Theme Settings
At the bottom of that page there is a section titled "Blog Page." there you can select what category you want to display on the home page (blog page).
I'm on my iPhone right now. So I can't give you the est direction. But if memory serves me, it's got to do with the category you select when editing the post. I believe its a category called "home?"
I use backup buddy to make a backup of the entire site. I then install that in a directory on my site or a create a subdomain for clients. Easy peasy!
If you are referring to the the widgeted area down below and NOT the slider. You add "featured page" or "featured post" widgets to the "featured" widget area.
If you're referring to the slider then you have to upload the genesis responsive slider plugin and mess with the settings, create a slider category and upload a featured image to the posts or pages you want to appear in the slider.
I figured this out for myself, with no thanks to studiopress support. Really annoyed and completely disappointed with the support. It's no better than it was before the big changes.
I initially emailed support direct (because I thought that's what I was supposed to do with the new system) and got an email on how I should post in the forum and so I did.
With no responses in over 24hrs, I emailed support again and got a dissertation from the support department explaining how they don't help with customizations.
Now... had someone really taken the time to a look at what I was really trying to accomplish, with a little direction, it could have been resolved very quickly.
The problem was that I did not need to move the secondary nav at all. All I needed to do was to add a new widget area before the content. It was a problem with how I was visualizing what needed to be done. An experienced genesis admin could have easily articulated this to me.
For me, this article really explained some details about how to add a widget area AND what the code actually means in English... this was easier for me to grasp than any other documentation I found on the studiopress site or Nick's site.
After adding the new widget area before the content (under the secondary nav), I can then put images in the new widget area to appear on specific pages and posts of my choice. This is accomplished using the widget logic plugin. It allows the use of conditional tags to tell wordpress where and when to display the new widget.
Hope this helps someone else.
So how would I reposition the secondary menu for all pages and posts except the home page. And why don't they give you an example of where you would put the code snippet? Seems like that page could quite easily provide an example and eliminate redundant questions.
