    I am using the Metro theme for this site:

    http://theindieconsultant.com/

    I want to add meta data to the blog post excerpts on the homepage just underneath the featured images where it says “Featured Business and Consultant News” and “FEATURED STORY”

    The meta needs to be a tiny thumbnail, date and author (ex. [PHOTO HERE] July 9, 2013 By Ivan Misner )

    Is there a tutorial or direction on how/where to add this?

    Thanks!
    -Jim

    You can try using the Genesis Featured Widget Amplified Plugin. I know there are settings in there to show the Author Image and edit the by line as you want it.

    Thanks anitac,
    That worked beautifully!

    theindieconsultant.com

    But where do I place the post shortcode?:

    [post_author_link before="<b>" after="</b>"] [post_time format="g:i a"], [post_date format="F j, Y" label="Dated: "]

    I need the post info to show up ideally next to the tiny author thumbnail. Would I use Genesis Simple Hooks for this?

    It’s in the plugin. Look for the Post Info field. It will show up next to the picture and below the title.

    By the way, toss this at the bottom of your style.css sheet. It will give you a margin on your avatars under the Contributors in your sidebar:

    [css]#sidebar .avatar {
    padding-right: 15px;
    }[/css]
