I fixed my page layout issues by adding this to my functions.php
add_theme_support( 'woocommerce' );
So now my functions.php has TWO lines related to woocommerce:
add_theme_support( 'woocommerce' );
add_theme_support( 'genesis-connect-woocommerce' );
I learned this from here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/woocommerce-update-broke-themeNovember 30, 2012 at 11:04 am in reply to: Gallery: 1 Picture and Description Per Page (looking for plugin) #2551
I think I have found a workable solution: http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/basic-imagebrowser-gallery/
Nextgen's Imagebrowser can load a different picture per page, and the caption can be used to supply the content.
It's not quite as robust as http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/30/10-cute-animals-that-are-ready-not-ready-for-christmas-slideshow/ which appears to use posts for each slide, instead of images/captions, but I think this will work. However, if anyone reading this does know how dailycaller.com pulled off their implementation, please share.November 30, 2012 at 10:51 am in reply to: Gallery: 1 Picture and Description Per Page (looking for plugin) #2543
Thanks for the suggestion but I also saw that plugin in use and it is just for delaying the loading of images until they are visible to the user (to make the page load faster).November 30, 2012 at 9:48 am in reply to: Gallery: 1 Picture and Description Per Page (looking for plugin) #2524
I'm still a little confused. Here is one I found on a WordPress site: http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/30/10-cute-animals-that-are-ready-not-ready-for-christmas-slideshow/
This is doing exactly what I want to do. It looks like they've created a post for each slide (since it has its own url, image, and content) and then are somehow grouping them together with pagination. I can't tell by looking at their source code what plugin is in use for this or if its some custom solution. But I see these setups everywhere and thought there would be a plugin that would pretty much do this for me, so that I could then show clients how to do it on their sites.
Feel free to contact me anytime.
Looks good to me.
Here is one: http://durban.directrouter.com/~hellerus/newsite/ (I've added the Agentpress Listings Plugin to the Minimum theme to create a responsive Agentpress listings site, since Agentpress is not responsive yet)
For the responsive sites I have in development, I'm using Minimum as a base (using a custom home page) and with extensive CSS customization. I like it mainly because I strip out most of the theme default styles anyway and it has minimum styling (no pun intended). Other times I've used the Sample Child Theme. I don't know your skill level, but it's pretty easy to insert a slider into any theme either using hooks, or a custom home page template (or editing the existing home page template if the theme has one), or just a widget area if the theme has an appropriately sized one already.
Yes, if you look at the styles on the flexslider-container div, it is absolutely positioned and "top" is set to -164px. And then the main content container has an explicit height set to it, to prevent the footer from getting pulled up too high on the page (since the slider is removed from the "flow" of the page because of the absolute positioning). You can see this with either Firebug for Firefox or the Chrome Developer Tools.
Although it doesn't list the actions on each hook (which would be great) the Genesis Visual Hook Guide is a good resource for seeing where certain hooks happen in the page structure. But a listing of each action that takes place on each hook would be a great resource.
It's just a big flexslider, but you could use flexslider, Nivo Slider, etc . If you're referring to the positioning, its just like any other slider but it uses CSS to position itself behind the other elements on the page. The clickable text I assume is just the slide caption that they've styled and positioned with CSS. (note I'm just another member, not Studiopress staff)
Very nice work, I'll be using it!
