    Greetings and Happy New Year!

    I am trying to style a custom category template. I have virtually no experience with php, but found a code snippet that has gotten me pretty close to what I am trying to achieve with some experimental trial and error tweaks. My template however, still shows a single featured post before the grid, and I can’t figure out how to make it go away. Any help would be appreciated!

    This is the page. I am trying to rid the page of the featured post at the top and keep the two-column grid of posts.

    This is the code I am using:

    * Template Name: videos
    remove_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘genesis_do_loop’ ); // Remove default loop
    //add_action(‘genesis_post_content’,’the_content’); // Adds your custom page code/content before loop
    add_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘category_page’ ); // Do custom loop
    function category_page() {
    //add_action(‘genesis_loop’, ‘genesis_standard_loop’);
    echo ‘<h1>';
    the_title(); // add title
    echo ‘</h1>';
    echo ‘<div class=”entry-content”>';
    echo ‘</div<!– end .entry-content –>’ ;
    function child_grid_loop_helper() {
    global $paged;
    if (function_exists(‘genesis_grid_loop’)) {
    if (function_exists(‘genesis_get_custom_field’)){
    $cat = 5; // video category
    $grid_args_rest = array(
    ‘features’ => 0,
    //’feature_image_size’ => ‘child_full’,
    //’feature_image_class’ => ‘aligncenter post-image’,
    //’feature_content_limit’ => 100,
    //’grid_image_size’ => ‘child_thumb’,
    //’grid_image_class’ => ‘aligncenter post-image’,
    ‘grid_content_limit’ => 150,
    //’more’ => ”,
    ‘posts_per_page’ => 15,
    ‘post_type’ => ‘post’,
    ‘cat’ => $cat,
    ‘paged’ => $paged
    //assuming that features won’t go beyond 1 page
    // genesis_grid_loop( $grid_args_rest );
    // /*
    if ( ($grid_args_past[‘paged’] > 1) )
    genesis_grid_loop( $grid_args_rest ); //do not show featured after page 1
    else {
    genesis_grid_loop( $grid_args_rest );
    } else {






    Looks like you got this sorted

    Unfortunately, no. I would like to remove the video at the top and just show the list of thumbnails. Any thoughts would be appreciated
