@braddalton - Hey Brad, does the update code work on pages too or it only works on posts? After reading this, I just looked at the Yoast's XML sitemap for pages and I saw that they never update. It reports that last update was the page's creation date... even the ones that are manually updated with new content on a daily basis.
@kayaismail I believe that you can get the old theme if that's what you want but you may have send them an email for the download link. They usually have all the older versions available.
@Joseph I thought that I was the only one that I found the new version to be very lame. Love the Genesis framework but like you said all of their new themes are identical with just a few lines of css added. What happened to the innovations that they promised (like specific schema markup) upon the release of Genesis 2.0 over a year ago? Not everyone who uses Genesis themes is an author or a blogger.
Hi @Tom, thank you for another suggestion. After playing with it for a few minutes I don't really see a use for it. IMO all it does is adding flat color background in a boxed section that it's width is limited by the page's content wrap width. You can do exactly the same, plus you can add gradient color backgrounds with just a couple lines of css...
I think that there are no free plugins out there to get the full browser's width and so far I've only found the ultimate addons for visual composer that can do it. Everything else I've seen is some customized version of that addon that is included with quite a few themes.
@BobH Visual Composer does not alter any schema.org markup that is already there.
@Tom Thanks for the suggestion of SiteOrigin's Page Builder. I just gave it a quick try and it's really lite which I love along with the ability to use all your existing widgets on the page.
However it won't allow for extended row widths (see support forum under 100% full width row) which is the only reason I like VC coupled with Ultimate VC add-ons for building an individual page.
It works fine... the only way I found to force full screen width rows and use cool image or video backgrounds on individual genesis pages, using the ultimate add-ons along with it.
Just noticed that you are not using the custom subdomain option to get the SEO credit for your site, Nothing of what I said above will work before you create a subdomain and redirect the default IDX Broker site to your own site.
Follow the instructions here to do that.
Sorry, forgot the mention that on the IDX Broker Dashboard when you are asked the site the DYNAMIC wrapper will use, you need to enter the new page's url that you created. For example:
@[email protected] For SEO purposes it's not good to use script for such pages. Have you installed the IDX Broker WordPress plugin? If you haven't do that first.
Then create a new page add a title and description for your advanced search on the SEO settings and add this code on the page:
<div id="idxStart"></div> <div id="idxStop"></div>
Go back to your IDX Broker Dashboard, select the advanced search page and use DYNAMIC wrapper instead of the static Global.
Your advanced search page now will be indexed by Google with its own title and description instead of a duplicate generic page... which is the case when using the Global static wrapper.
Repeat the above step of using DYNAMIC wrapper for all the pages that you want to create. (results, details, gallery, contact, city pages, etc.)
Another benefit of using dynamic wrappers is that you can also add any content above or below the code that I show you above and most important the pages automatically update if you make any changes to your sidebar, footer, etc.March 25, 2014 at 1:48 pm in reply to: How to Display Submenu in 2 Columns instead of one? #96640
It is my understanding that UberMenu only works as a Primary or Secondary menu... so it doesn't work if you need it for a right header custom menu. Tried it and it doesn't work. UberMenu works fine if you want to use a primary menu under the header instead of the header right custom menu.February 5, 2014 at 9:51 pm in reply to: I want to center elements in the Parallax Pro Header #88901
.header-image .site-title > achange
width: 400px;that you currently have to
It works for me without having to change or add anything else to the @media code.
Anyone knows how this effect is done?
Here's the setup instructions for the theme: http://my.studiopress.com/setup/sixteen-nine-theme/
You need to create a custom menu and then add it to the Header right widget. Scroll down to "How To Add A Custom Menu To Your Site" and follow the instructions.

@Summer Denali has been replaced by Parallax Pro (http://demo.studiopress.com/parallax/) which according to bgardner will be released next week.
@hopeandfind That's usually an IE11 error. Are you using the IE11 browser? If you are, click on the browser settings icon on top right, then Compatibility View Settings and remove your site from there.
The solution that I found is to NOT use Yoast's sitemap but use the Google sitemaps instead that allows for the homepage to be included.
Another reason for the homepage not ranking as well is that unfortunately ALL Genesis child themes use <H4> tags instead of <H1> or <H2> on the front page's headlines when you use the widget's title, which is bad for SEO. Just look at the H-tag on any child theme's front page headline. I'm hoping that someone will address this issue on a future Genesis update. Easiest way to fix this for now is to NOT use the widget's title (on text widgets) and use the H-tag on the text content... OR you can hard code the title H-tags on the widgets at the functions.php file when you register them.
You can use a static page as a front page and still have the site tagline and the home-featured widgets as long as you enter some there. The static page content will be where the blog posts are on the demo. At least that's what happened when I tried it.
Some plugins will do that (drop meta tags to the body when open graph is used).
I'm using the Yoast SEO plugin and if I activate Open Graph for FB & Twitter while I had another plugin active which was NOT compatible with OG, all the meta would drop to the body and I would see a message from Yoast that I should add meta info to my page or post when looking at the page's source code. To solve that I had to either disable the other plugin or disable FB & Twitter Open Graph on the Yoast plugin.
Epik is a 3rd party developed theme - NOT a StudioPress theme. When we purchase the StudioPress package, it includes ALL themes (current & future) that are developed by StudioPress but NOT the 3rd party developed themes, which if you take a look at the gallery (http://my.studiopress.com/themes/) are clearly marked as a 3rd party theme on the top right of the image.
