    Hello all, first post, first day using StudioPress and the Genesis framework.
    I have just installed the G framework, and then the Agency Pro Theme, and an wanting to do more than just upload a nice picture for the background. I would like to use a video I purchased from iStock.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi,
    You might have a look at this tutorial and see if it helps you:

    I like the way you used the vimeo video and text side by side, also the slider in the section below… would you share how those are set up?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hey thank you for your link and for replying! That looks promising, and I will certainly play around with it.

    You can do the vimeo video the way I did by inserting the code below in the Appearance>Widgets>Home Middle (of the Agency Pro theme):

    [su_row][su_column size="1/2"]<iframe src="//player.vimeo.com/video/56612188?color=fc8105" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> <p><a href="http://vimeo.com/56612188">ROAM THIS PLACE</a> from <a href="http://vimeo.com/rockhousemotion">RockHouse Motion</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>[/su_column]
    [su_column size="1/2"]Aaron Hitchens and the fine people at Rockhouse Motion have spent some time recently with Leadburn Earl. And although he isn't featured in this video, we know you'll appreciate their talents and passion for the outdoor lifestyle.

    You will need to install the Shortcodes Ultimate plugin first though in order to use the [su_columns]

    Shortcodes Ultimate also lets you make the sliders, and once you insert the code, you can add/remove pictures and rearrange their order by using the number associated with that media file you uploaded to WordPress. Example, I have images 51,44,43,62,77 inserted into one slideshow. If I don’t want one, or want to add, it just use the 2=3 digit number wordpress assigns to each image you upload. I really like the way the Shortcodes Ultimate plugin calls images like that, and auto adjusts them to the size of the slideshow, which is also customizable by simply adjusting the numbers in the code.

    Finally, I was able to call the page for http://cornerstoneretrievers.com/leadburn-earl/ directly into the homepage by using the Home-Bottom widget under Appearance. Simply drag the Genesis-Featured Page over and adjust settings to what you want. VERY SIMPLE and COOL!
