I’m sorry. I just looked at the theme on my demo server and it’s called “Page Title” not Welcome.
You can drag a Featured Posts into the areas and select a category for each one. The slider is in the Featured-Full widget area, the ones below it are Featured Top Left, Featured Top Right, and so on and so forth. Just drag a Featured Post into each of these and select a different category for each one. Or you can drag whatever you want in there. The layout is controlled by widgets.
What do you mean by “magazine” layout. I don’t see that as an option in the demo – http://prettydarncute.com/demos/adorable/.
widgetwidget area. Go to Appearance > Widgets. Look on the right in the widget area and you should see Welcome – just drag a TEXT WIDGET into that area and add the words/statement you want.
You mean the block that says, “A mobile-responsive theme…” That’s the welcome widget.
For menus/navigation – Go to the Genesis Tab, click Genesis Settings. Scroll down and you will see Primary and Secondary Navigation. You can activate both of them.
Then go to Appearance > Menus. Look in the middle and you will see Primary and Secondary both with drop downs. Create your menus on the right and then tell the Primary and Secondary which menu to use.
Download “Genesis for Beginners” here – http://www.studiopress.com/news/genesis-for-beginners.htm. If you need more help, don’t hesitate to ask.
You have to manually fix that – do this:
> Open up using FTP
> Look inside the WP-DBmanager plugin for the htaccess.txt file (wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager)
> MOVE it to the backup-db file folder (rogerlapin.co.uk/web/wp-content/backup-db)
> Then RENAME htaccess.txt to .htaccess
This is a security measure. Once you do that, then revisit the dashboard and the warning will be gone.
I would turn the “repeat” off of the logo. Did you insert that by using the header function? If so, go over and turn repeat off. I can see the logo repeating below it. The black background is an actual image, so you would need to replace that with an appropriately sized image to allow for both the Logo and the Tagline (height).
You can activate the secondary navigation and move it by the instructions found here – http://my.studiopress.com/snippets/navigation-menus/.
Where I see the word Madge on the top right – you could replace that with the Simple Social Icons – http://www.studiopress.com/plugins/simple-social-icons or you could use the Social Circles – http://www.studiopress.com/plugins/social-circles.
Well, like I said, I am “old hat”…. you can use FTP and backup your Images folder as well as your theme, especially if you customized it. I use Filezilla FTP and I just log in and drag my image folder over to my desktop. I don’t change the dates or anything, I just click and drag. Sometimes a one-click action can be flawed, but I am just really anal about my backup!
Did you do your Tools > Export to your desktop at all? It’s important to do that too. It renders an XML of your content.March 3, 2013 at 7:53 am in reply to: Shortcode not working with author box title snippet #23882
In my experience shortcodes don’t work in a text widget unless you have a plugin. Try this – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shortcodes-in-sidebar-widgets/.March 3, 2013 at 7:40 am in reply to: How to get featured images to work on blog using Magazine theme #23881
@alexnavas, do you have both a featured image and a image in the beginning of your content?
@jodzeee, no featured images do not automatically show up on the post. It’s only a thumbnail image used on the home, blog, and archive pages. If you want the featured image to show up “automatically” when you add a featured image, I have a instructions on how to accomplish this. Just write back here and I can post the link.
Thank you. I only tested it with the 240 logo size which is my Android. I would hope that I wouldn’t have to create 4 different sizes in order for just 1 size to work.
Ahh, I forgot to jump back over here and THANK YOU :). As I mentioned, I am going to play around with it and try different things.
You need to reposition it in your home.php file. It’s in a separate DIV. Try to put it in the same DIV as the others. I can’t really tell you because I don’t have your code.
I just re-downloaded the file, and unzipped it to my hard drive without a problem. I would suggest you go into your my.studiopress.com account and download a fresh copy. Sometimes when you download there could have been a minor interruption in internet services or the file didn’t completely download.
