I recently bought an Animal Care theme which was too complicated for me to use. I’ve reverted back to my Lifestyle theme, which I love. However the other theme had a lovely section for re-homing animals and I’m wondering if it would be possible for Lifestyle to be customised to incorporate something similar?

Well, you can. It’s just going to take a few tweaks to get it that way. How good are you with CSS? This is what I’d do and I am not a programmer or anything. But.. here it goes.
You could follow Brian’s instructions for Adding the Welcome Text Widget (http://www.briangardner.com/welcome-text-widget/) – this will give you a sidebar under the banner and before the content to place the Genesis Slider or the Responsive Slider. His instructions are really easy.
On another Genesis discussion group they told me about the Sililoquy plugin which you could get for $20 to give you the sliding images at the bottom. Again, if you use Brian’s instructions, you can add another Welcome Text Widget area and hook it before the footer – then put this plugin in there.
Then start “coloring” it up with CSS.
Just a side note, my heart aches when I see dogs that do not have forever homes yet. I have an 13 year male bichon pooh and he’s my baby. If you need more help, let me know. I’ll try my best to help you.December 19, 2012 at 10:58 pm #6335
Thanks very much.
I’ll have a think about using that. It’s amazing really, the range of plugins available!
What I’m really after though, at the moment, is the icons at the top of the animal pages. I want to put info such as sex, breed,DOB etc and would like something similar to what is on the animal pages on the Animal Care theme.
The Animal Care theme has a added section for the animals, so you have posts,pages and animals. Whereas the Lifestyle theme just has posts and pages. I’ve put the dogs onto pages, but would like to pretty them up a bit.
I think it’s so sad for the older dogs at the refuge as many of them will never find a home. They’ll be with us for the rest of their lives.December 20, 2012 at 6:18 am #6354

That would be a lot of work to customize to have it to all those things. I’ve worked with a lot of Themeforest themes. If you need some help with the one you purchase, click the link in my footer to my website and contact me from there. I can help you remotely.December 20, 2012 at 7:12 am #6375
Thank you. I’ve bookmarked your site.
I’m going to concentrate on the one I’m building just now, but I do want to switch to the other once I get to understand it, so I will be in touch.
