Thank you. Activating the sharing feature in Jetpack has made it so that photos now show up when I paste a blog link into a FaceBook post. That's a good start.December 27, 2013 at 1:13 pm in reply to: Full width photo above content-sidebar pages? #81436
The above links are now old.
For anyone curious, I was able to do this with this tutorial:
And here is the result: http://danceworksstudio.com/lessons/introductory/
The only thing I don't currently have working is how to get the alt text for the image working. For some reason when inserting the photo with the above custom field method it doesn't show. Something for another post. But the tutorial was definitely helpful in getting the photo up there.December 27, 2013 at 1:08 pm in reply to: Turning off Akismet on sites with comments turned off? #81435
Thanks!December 20, 2013 at 6:53 pm in reply to: Title Overlay on Featured Images, overlay not clickable? #80541
The site has gone live at: http://danceworksstudio.com/
The issue is still there...
For example on the Getting Started image, the image is clickable, and the actual text "Getting Started" is clickable, but the overlay (the background color area of the title) is not clickable. I wish there was a way to make this clickable.October 28, 2013 at 7:03 pm in reply to: How to set default width of video when entering video URL? #69557
Thank you anitac. This work's well.
And emasai you are correct in that I'd prefer staff to use a more sophisticated way to post, as then they can adjust even more of the default options. But at least now if they don't do it that way, or can't figure it out, and least the video is a good width with just a URL paste.
Thank you both!October 25, 2013 at 7:46 pm in reply to: How to set default width of video when entering video URL? #68975
Sorry Lynne, I guess I'm not being clear.
I already know how to adjust the link with shortcodes, and how to edit the embed code to change the size.
The issue is I want the staff to be able to just paste a URL. I don't want them to have to do a bunch of things with shortcodes or embed code, it will be too hard for the non-techy staff. My question is.... is there a way that I can preset the default width, so that later with the non-technical staff just pastes a video URL it will default to the preset width that I have set.
Perhaps it is not possible, but if so that's what I'd like to know.October 25, 2013 at 2:54 pm in reply to: How to set default width of video when entering video URL? #68920
Thanks Lynne for your quick reply.
In this case my post has just the URL. I'm literally just entering: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIR49Wa7fZ8
(Hope that comes across) into my post.
And what is cool is that it does automatically does the embedding. So somewhere (WP, Genesis, YouTube?) is deciding what size to show it at.
I'm wondering if there's somewhere I can adjust this default. While I can remember to add shortcodes to adjust the size, most of the staff that will do the posting isn't techy, so having a way to adjust this default would be handy.September 19, 2013 at 1:50 pm in reply to: Metro primary nav displaying twice #63425
TeeTide, I had a similar problem. I was able to resolve it by adjusting the priorities.
When the add_action for the menu was too close in priority to the remove_action I had the problem. By assigning the add_action a much later priority (for me 20 worked) I was able to get rid of the second menu. See example.
`//* Reposition the primary navigation menu
remove_action( 'genesis_after_header', 'genesis_do_nav' );
add_action( 'genesis_before', 'genesis_do_nav', 20 );'
Unclear to me why this works, you think if the priority was a just simply a later number it should work. But I offer it in case it helps you.September 17, 2013 at 11:24 pm in reply to: Full width photo above content-sidebar pages? #63129
Hmm... okay created a studiopress password.
An example of a page that I'd like to show a full-width image underneath the menus:
user: studiopress; pass: studiopress
Our current website will show you an example of the placement of the photo: http://www.danceworksstudio.com/lessons-introductory.htmlSeptember 7, 2013 at 11:32 am in reply to: Is Metro Pro missing "SubNav – left" widget area? #61235
OK, I think I partially figured this out. In the Metro Pro demo they are using the CSS Classes feature of menu structure to align the first menu item of the secondary menu to "alignleft". And that's how they get their text (which is now a menu) in the top left corner.
So the split/aligning menu feature is cool. But I think this means I can no longer just put a bit of plain text up in that left hand corner. Or is there something I'm missing?September 6, 2013 at 10:59 pm in reply to: Is Metro Pro missing "SubNav – left" widget area? #61189
Or did I somehow add it with a plugin and just can't remember which one?
