I’m new to Genesis and relatively new to WP. I purchased and installed the Genesis Magazine template and have been busy customizing the appearance/functionality.
For now I want a standard blog homepage but with a widget (slider) at the top of the latest blog posts. As soon as I place any widget in the Home area, all of the posts disappear.
After some digging I realized that this is ‘expected behavior’ but it’s not what I want. [BTW The "How Home Pages Work" in the Genesis manual is pretty generic and there was no specific information about the Magazine template.]
How do I maintain a standard blog format but add widgets to the page? My goal was to insert a widget above the first blog post so I could have a slider at the top of the page. I tried using the Genesis – Featured Posts widget and doesn’t appear to have all the functionality of the standard blog format (e.g. pagination is missing).
Also I’m looking to add a very simple carousel where I can attach photos, create a caption, and specify external URL’s. Most sliders seem to be focused on promoting on-site content. Does anyone have any good suggestions? I’m looking for something similar to what can be seen at the bottom of http://themify.me/demo/themes/elemin/
What is the URL of the website you are working on so we can take a look?
