    By default, the current Agency Pro theme displays the Featured Post by category in the “HomeMiddle” and “HomeBottom” section. The “HomeBottom” section displays the featured image first, with the title and text underneath.

    I need only the “HomeBottom” section to display the Title and text first, with the featured image underneath.

    I’m looking for suggestions on how to make this happen, even if I have to switch the display to ‘Featured Page’ to avoid conflict with the posts in the ‘HomeMiddle’ section.

    Otherwise, I’m using the default setting for everything as it comes with the Agency Pro theme.

    Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    note: I’m working in maintenance mode, so cannot include a URL (this is a state gov’t site that I can’t allow access to, or publish until approved).

    That’s a little tricky, because the featured page/post widgets don’t allow for the title and text to display on top of the image

    Normally i would just write a custom to achieve this instead of using the widgets, but that is a big job.

    you could try and ‘position: absolute’ the image and add some margin to the ‘entry-header’ to push it down, this would give the effect with just a few lines of css, but this is just a theory

    unfortunately the agency Pro demo does not have a featured image on the bottom section, so i can’t try it

    Thanks for your response, Jamie. I found a way around this, and will explain here just incase someone else comes across this later (I had to do some creative thinking lol).

    I turned off “Featured Image”, and chose to display FULL Content. I then simply set up the post to include the image at the end of the post, centered.

    It will work for now, considering the fact that this has to launch today (no time to write/re-write a plugin).

    Now, if I could find a quick way to make these NOT link to the post, I’d be golden! LOL

    Anyone have ideas on how to make the featured posts showing in the ‘Home Middle’ and ‘Home Bottom’ NOT link to the posts?

    Hey there

    there is nothing you can really do about it linking, it’s built in the plugin

    you could just use a text widget, and put you content and image in there, you would need to grab the html in firebug, and then edit it to remove the links, and even move the image where you need.

    here is a quick grab of one of the posts from the sample theme (home-bottom), links removed, you would still need to do some css tweaks, but it would only take a minute.

    
    <article itemtype="http://schema.org/BlogPosting" itemscope="itemscope" class="post-71 post type-post status-publish format-standard category-category-1 tag-images-centered entry">
      <header class="entry-header">
        <h2 class="entry-title">Sample Post With Image Centered</h2>
        <p class="entry-meta"><time datetime="2013-01-01T01:55:21+00:00" itemprop="datePublished" class="entry-time">January 1, 2013</time></p>
      </header>
    
      <div class="entry-content">
        <p>This is an example of a WordPress post, you could edit this to put information about yourself or your site so readers 
    		know where you are coming from. You can create as many posts.</p>
      </div>

    I need only the “HomeBottom” section to display the Title and text first, with the featured image underneath.

    @gingerwench This can be achieved with the plugin “Genesis Sandbox Featured Content Widget”. The current version has a slight glitch in selecting posts by category/taxonomy. You should try an earlier version as suggested in the plugin’s support discussion.

    (The “Genesis Featured Widget Amplified” plugin is also capable of doing this but has not been maintained for ~ 2years and has developed interface usability issues.)

    Image of results. You’ll probably have to add some CSS tweaks of your own.

    Let us know how you make out with this.
