Is it possible to change the “Post” directly above the footer to a “Page” in the Education Theme?March 28, 2013 at 1:52 am #31689March 28, 2013 at 10:17 am #31772
Brad, maybe I’m not understanding this correctly (I’m a newbie). On the Education Theme the area above the footer is holding a Post. I thought that was part of the Theme’s layout and that ONLY a Post could be placed in that area. On the Widget screen I see the Header Right, Primary Sidebar, Secondary Sidebar, Slider, Intro, Featured, Call to Action, Footer 1, Footer 2, Footer 3. The place where the Post falls into place is between the Call to Action and the Footers. So I’m not sure if making the change you are suggesting will work. Correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!!March 28, 2013 at 11:52 am #31801
Sorry my mistake. You want to display a page rather than a post in that area?
the area above the footer is holding a Post.

Correct.March 28, 2013 at 12:21 pm #31806March 28, 2013 at 3:51 pm #31848
I don’t know much HTML and very little CSS but I’ll give it a try to see what I can break. Wish me luck!

Here’s one solution. There are others.
Grab the post i.d from your source code and replace it in this CSS code which you need to add to your child themes style.css file.
Then add this PHP code to your child themes functions.php file.
Or grab it from Github https://gist.github.com/braddalton/5269913

You can remove the Post meta link for categories using the Genesis Simple Edits plugin.
The code above works and has been tested if you want to add a new widget area above your footer.

Brad, I was just getting ready to copy the above code and jump into the deep end of the PHP pool when your final reply came through! I will work on this and let you know the outcome. Thank you for all of your assistance.May 28, 2013 at 2:21 pm #42947
Brad, I finally had a chance to try out your suggestions of changing the css and adding the PHP code to my functions.php file. The “Post” container disappeared (good). The “Before Footer Widget” appeared in my Widgets (good). But now I have run into a major road block. This isn’t new due to your suggestions. It’s an existing WP (what I consider) problem.
I dragged a “Page” into the “Before Footer Widget” area. I hit the dropdown arrow and see Title, Sort by:, and Exclude (Page IDs separated by commas). I have 285 PAGES! I will have to type in 284 EXCLUDED pages instead of typing in ONE INCLUDED page!! Any fix to this?May 28, 2013 at 4:39 pm #42966
Brad, well, I managed to find some information on changing the Exclude/Include problem. It required editing the default-widgets.php file. So now I have a nice page widget that has changed from “Exclude: Page IDs, separated by commas” to “Include: Page IDs, separated by commas”. But now I realize that I totally misunderstood the “Pages” widget. Now, what I’m getting in the area where I wanted to show a Page instead of a Post, I’m getting a list with a link to the page I wanted to show. Brother! So despite all my efforts, this is not what I wanted. Any suggestions? Quick, before I jump…….May 28, 2013 at 5:50 pm #42981
Sorry, me again! As stated above, the Page widget is not working out as I planned but I did try the “Genesis-Featured Page” widget and it added a page just as I had envisioned, only……the content of the page is running out of the margins! Will this never end? Anyway, just a reminder that I am using a responsive theme (Education). Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks!May 28, 2013 at 6:38 pm #42987
