    HI all. I’m Seth. I am a novice and am excited to learn from all of your expertise! I just set up sethPerler.com to begin seriously blogging my ideas.

    I work with struggling outside-the-box students. Basically, as an education coach, I spend a lot of time doing what schools should do better. I ask the right questions.

    Needless to say, I have put an extraordinary amount into setting up the blog because I want it to serve people well. I used the Minimum 2.0 theme. Still working out kinks. ANY AND ALL honest feedback is welcome and appreciated. I am in no way sensitive about it, i just want it to be a powerful and easy tool for families to use. Building sites is not my forte, so I would love insights from y’all.

    Well, thanks for reading this. I look forward to diving into this community.

    Seth

    Hi Seth, your website looks great…I was wondering where did you get the social circle icons from on your homepage?

    Thanks, Dustin.   http://www.divineangelhealing.com

    Hello DUDJAK you can get that from the Minimum theme from StudioPress I believe that theme was created by Brian,


    To speed up the process please post the link to the website in question.

    Seth:

    Nice site – I went there to look at what you’ve done with the site, and then got engrossed by the content. Cool!

    Dustin:

    The social circle icons come with the Minimum theme – you would just need to change the colors in the CSS (I believe they are a dark gray straight out of the box, so to speak).

    @ dud_jak — for your information, you can go into your edit user screen and place a signature there so you don’t have to “mock” it in a post.

    Hey all,

    Dustin-the circles came with the theme-jsut modified them. I want them to change color when I hover like it does on teh original theme but can’t figure it out yet. Good luck.

    Susan-thanks. Feel free to sign up for the updates- I have about 60 articles mostly written on various topics. THE most important topic is executive function btw. Because of teh fmri technology in the past 10 years or so, we are able to finally really get an understanding of what is going on in the brain real time. It brings a very real legitimacy to the struggles students are having finally.

    Brian Gardner-can you give me any help with the photos on Minimum-I am having issues.

    1. The home page of sethpereler.com has the pics over teh posts rather than beside

    2. The pics on the BLOG page are duplicated for some reason

    3. The pics on the posts themselves are HUGE, esp on the Supplies post

    Any help would be much appreciated bc I am ready to start publicizing my blog! (exciting for me! So thanks for the awesome theme. I went through 4 before finding yours!)

    Seth – For some of these changes, you’ll need to edit PHP code on your site.  If you’re not comfortable doing that, don’t.  Have a backup and FTP access so you can over-write any bad changes.

    1) Find home.php of your CHILD theme and edit line 74 to say ‘alignleft’ instead of ‘alignnone’; that’s if you want images aligned left;

    Line 74 should be the line for grid_image_class.

    if ( function_exists( ‘genesis_grid_loop’ ) ) {
    genesis_grid_loop( array(
    ‘features’                 => 0,
    ‘feature_image_size’     => ‘featured’,
    ‘feature_image_class’     => ‘post-image’,
    ‘feature_content_limit’ => 0,
    ‘grid_image_size’        => 0,
    ‘grid_image_class’        => ‘alignleft’,
    ‘grid_content_limit’     => 250,
    ‘more’                    => __( ‘[Read more]‘, ‘minimum’ ),
    ) );
    } else {
    genesis_standard_loop();
    }

    2) Take a look at your Genesis settings for content archives.  Are you including the featured image?  Do you ALSO have the image in the post content?  That would produce a duplicate.

    3) The size of the thumbnail on the archives is in the drop down setting for Genesis content archives.  Adjust it to suit your taste.

    Hope that helps.
