Worked like a charm! Thanks again for the help!August 19, 2013 at 12:00 pm in reply to: Add Full Width Image before content/sidebar with Hook #57366
It's an XHTML install right now. If I change it over to HTML5, is there anything I need to change with this?August 19, 2013 at 11:09 am in reply to: Add Full Width Image before content/sidebar with Hook #57348
Thanks for the help! This is close to what I'd like to do, but I don't want to replace the header image. I would like to add a header-type image above the content but below the Navigation. If what you suggested is the way to do that, forgive my ignorance. I have the CSS and HTML stuff down, but I trip all over PHP and hooks. I read the linked article and think this is close to what I'm wanting, I just need to know how to get it to appear above the content, below the nav, and without replacing the main header.
Thanks again for all your help!!!August 17, 2013 at 9:57 pm in reply to: Add Full Width Image before content/sidebar with Hook #57119
Thanks for the reply!
I'm thinking this option:
"Another option is to use a custom field hooked into the same position. This will enable you to create a custom meta box for a second featured image where they can simply upload the image from any edit screen."
This sounds like what I'm going for. Looking forward to your wise advice!
Thanks! This got me on the right track to getting done what I needed!
I think I'm just going to style the green menu that is there already. I tried adding the
add_action( 'genesis_sidebar', 'genesis_do_subnav' );
to the Featured Bottom Left in the function.php, but it didn't work. Is that the code you were talking about? I tried it in the home.php as well, but nothing happened.
Thanks again for your patience and help!
That's what is already there. That green text is actually a custom menu widget, aligned vertically. The code you suggested added the secondary nav and all it's CSS styling to the sidebar (look at the Agents page), but there is no widget actually placed in the sidebar at this time. It's there because the function.php is telling it to be there.
Putting a custom menu widget in the Featured Bottom Left sidebar was my first move and it never occurred to me that it would be so difficult to get it to lay out horizontally. Adjusting the placement of the primary or secondary nav was the suggestion of others as well, but I can't get it to where I need it via PHP. Not sure what else to do.
Also, if you click on the "Agents" menu item, it will take you to the sample inner page and you can see what the change in code produced. It's the right track...just not sure if I can get it put right where I want with the functions.php or not.
Thanks for the response. I tried this with the secondary nav. Same code and the secondary nav now shows up in the primary sidebar, but there is no way to remove it now. I need it in the Featured Bottom Left area on the home page. Any ideas how to get it there? This is what I tried to do earlier (registering it other places), but I could not figure out how to get it to show up anywhere but after or before the footer. That is close, but not quite where I need it.
Thanks again for your assistance!
Let me update: apparently the theme is set up already to allow the propery search widget float atop the slider widget area. I would just like to switch these elements around. I've tried flipping the float properties of both, but I believe the way the overflow is working, I won't be able to get the image under the smaller widget if the slider image is floated right. Thanks for any help!
