I loaded genesis in place of a thesis theme. I bought Metro and loaded that after genesis.
I didnt get any of the full look of metro. No background, no images just the content that I already had.
I uploaded the xml file thinking that would add the images and format. No luck
Why isnt the metro theme looking like the metro theme?

Hi, John: Did you follow the set-up instructions: http://my.studiopress.com/setup/metro-theme/ – no theme will look like the demo until you populate the various widget areas.
Also XML content does *not* typically include images (from posts or pages).
Please include a link to your site.

Hi Susan- so good to hear from you. Thank you for your prompt response.
the site is http://126.96.36.199/~forwari7/
I bought the metro theme thinking that I would bet the background image of the city. Was I mistaken?April 1, 2013 at 12:57 pm #32488
That image is not included – it is shown in the demo to give you an idea of how a background image would render on the site (full-screen). You would need to add your own image.

Hi Susan- few ??’s
Where can I get that image?
What are the parameters I would use for it? (image size, type, ect)
I’m also getting a disjointed box in the text widget in the primary side bar. Can you have a look?

Hi Susan- the side bar is all set.
BUT… in the top nav the “Products” button takes me to http://188.8.131.52/~forwari7/products/products/
and for some reason the entire post is truncated.
Can you have a look?

Sorry for the troubleApril 4, 2013 at 3:49 pm #33198
John – for the menu item for products, did you select a page, or did you add a category?
When I click on the “Products” button, it is taking me to: http://184.108.40.206/~forwari7/category/products/ – which makes believe you’ve added a category, rather than a page to that menu item. If you select a category, it will display an excerpt of all posts which use that category. If you want it to go to the actual page, then you need to add the page (http://220.127.116.11/~forwari7/products/products/ ) to the menu.

Hi Susan- questions
1,) the footer info I put in using the theme file appears at the bottom of the post not all the way at the bottom of teh theme. Is there another file somewhere?
2.) cant seem to get teh date to appear on the upper right side of the nav.
3.) in the video theres info on css suggestions. Where can I find that code?
JohnApril 8, 2013 at 2:05 pm #34077
1. Did you put the footer snippets into your theme functions.php file? Where in the file did you put it? (I recommend the Simple Edits plugin for those changes – it’s easier than messing with the functions.php file)
2. To make the date appear, go to Genesis > Theme Settings > Navigation Extras, and select “today’s date” from the drop-down.
3. I’m not sure what css suggestions you are looking for (I will admit to not having watched the video!) What are you looking to do?

1,) I did put the footer snippets into the theme functions php on the bottom. I also used the simple edits , thats how I was able to modify the bottom portion but was unable to include outgoing links.
2.) i had done just that and nothing.
3.) in the video it references a bunch of css code when creating a custom content box. That’s what I’m looking for.
4.) Where can I add Google analytics code so it’s site wide?

I added the G code before the header but in GA I get
