    I’ve searched the forums here & can’t find what I’m looking for, so please be nice.

    I’m using the Fremedy Genesis theme from Themedy.

    What I’m having issues with:

    1) I’d like to have the Featured Posts Carousel  on the home page, not the blog home page. Here is the code for it.

    `
    php if (is_home() and themedy_get_option(‘slider’) != ‘remove’) {
    `

    2) I’m trying to get change the default […] read more link. This is from just changing the setting to show excerpts instead of using the Read More link in the editor. Is there a way to change it to an actual link? I know you can click on the Post title, but that’s not what the person wants.

    Thank you for your time.
    Stephen

    Stephen,

    We haven’t used the Fremedy theme before but I may be able to offer some help. I think if you just replace the instances of is_home() with is_front_page() that should do the trick. I downloaded the theme and took a quick look and I don’t see that it has a homepage template (home.php) which seems to imply that it will default to using the blog template for the homepage. Unless you change the settings/reading to “Front page displays” to “A static Page” and then set a page? If you’ve done that, then the is_front_page() function should only return true when the page you set on that settings/reading “Front Page Displays” is the current page. And should return false when you’re on the blog page. Note there are a few places where it makes that check.. some to enqueue  the necessary javascripts and some to include the markup in the html.

    Hopefully that does the trick for ya!

    Stephen,
    Doh! Forgot to answer part 2…

    http://www.binaryturf.com/genesis-tip-customize-genesis-post-excerpts-5-minutes/

    the first code snipet on that page has a little function to add a filter to the excerpt output. Basically it uses the get_permalink() function to grab the link of the current post in “the loop” and uses it as the href in the markup. The rest can be anything you want. Add any other link properties like a title, and of course the text can be anything you want.. “Read More…”, “Continue Reading…”, “You’d be NUTS to not read the rest of this!!!!”…

    Hopefully that get’s it done!

    Thank you Eddy. That did work. I forgot about it not having a home.php/ Once I switched it over to is_front_page() everything worked the way I wanted it.

    As for the Read more link issue, I found the solution here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt

    Once I started looking for the_excerpt() changes, that popped up.

     

    Again, thank you for your time Eddy.

    Stephen,

    Glad I could help. I thought I submitted a second message after realizing I hadn’t answered the second question. I must have zoned out before hitting the submit on that one. I’m glad you were able to find the solution. The page I recommended listed one of the same solutions as on the page you found.. so  you’re all set!
