    I suppose I could have done that, too @anitac ;-) Thanks!

    Unfortunately, I don’t think I can edit the title, but I had gone back and added “Premise” as one of the Tags.

    Admittedly, I haven’t used Premise for as much as it is capable of – a few landing pages, here and there, but that is it. The more I use it, the more capable it becomes.

    However, I hope Copyblogger dresses it up a little, improves the UI/Usability, now that they’ve taken it off the market. It just doesn’t have that StudioPress je ne sais quoi. Unlike their other products, Premise seems to be more clunky and complicated. I’m not finding it very easy, at all, trying to set up this Member’s Only Forum, as a paid model, using Premise.

    anitac, I did take your suggestion and submit a support request, via the Premise system. However, my initial thought was, someone on this forum, would have already accomplished, what I’m trying to do, with one of the StudioPress Child-Themes. Honestly, I haven’t even selected a child theme, for the website which this idea will be implemented on, yet. It is simply using Genesis, at this point.

    I don’t want to revive a dead post (I understand a lot of people are against dead post revivals), however I don’t see the need to open a new thread. So…

    I see a number of questions about eCommerce plugins and Genesis. I see a number of answers, based on a range of experience, with multiple plugins. I myself have some experience with a number of eCommerce plugins as well, but all of my experience was prior to switching every website I manage, over to Genesis.

    What I would like to see is an official response, from StudioPress Developers, about the best option, or at the very least, a response as to what they are using on http://my.studiopress.com/themes/ and why they chose to use that option.

    Ok… I have the Soliloquy Slider “hooked” but now that I do, I’m thinking I want to go a different direction. I’ve been playing with the Soliloquy Slider but I’m trying to accomplish something almost identical to what the bxSlider is doing here.

    Ok, ok…

    I answered my own question.

    Yes, the Soliloquy Slider can be hooked with the Genesis Simply Hooks plugin, using the following php:

    
    <?php if ( is_front_page() && function_exists('soliloquy_slider') ) { soliloquy_slider( 'Soliloquy-Slider-ID-No' ); } ?>
    

    Now, to get the slider image to fill the screen, at 100% width…

    So again, @braddalton, I’m not the PHP expert I should be, but I want to use Genesis Simple Hooks to hook this plugin.

    When you helped me with the EasingSliderPro, the PHP looked like this:

    
    <?php if ( is_front_page() && function_exists('easingsliderpro') ) { easingsliderpro( 1 ); } ?>
    

    So, would the same format work, for the Soliloquy Slider?

    Would it look like this:

    
    <?php if ( is_front_page() && function_exists('soliloquy_slider') ) { soliloquy_slider( 'home-page' ); } ?>
    

    …or did I mess that up, completely? ;-)

    Awesome @braddalton! That is what I was looking for!

    I’m using images that are 1600px X 1050px and the slideshow is not centered (I’m sure this is a basic CSS change), nor is it stretching to the full width of the screen, as the images do on http://tavphotography.com/ I know the EasingSliderPro settings only you to specify the dimensions in pixels and then whether or not you want to make it responsive. So I’m curious if these two issues are a setting I’m missing, or more code I need to modify?

    @braddalton & @timbarry – I appreciate both of your suggestions and feedback.

    I’m not saying your suggested methods wont work. I’m absolutely sure they will. However, what I’m asking is:

    Is there is an effective and efficient way to hook the EasingSliderPro, from within the Genesis Simple Hooks plug-in, rather than directly modifying the functions.php file, of the child theme?

    @braddalton – Sorry, I wasn’t talking about Genesis itself, being updated. I was talking about the Minimum Pro Child theme being updated. Sorry if I wasn’t clear.

    Also, I may not be clear on the use of the Genesis Simple Hooks plug-in. This plug-in already has a “genesis_after_header” hook. So, does one use:

    function display_slider_after_header_home() {
    if (is_home() && function_exists('easingsliderpro') ) { 
    easingsliderpro( 1 );
       
       }
     
    }

    or, does one use:

    add_action('genesis_after_header', 'display_slider_after_header_home');
    
    function display_slider_after_header_home() {
    if (is_home() && function_exists('easingsliderpro') ) { 
    easingsliderpro( 1 );
       
       }
     
    }

    I’m asking because it seems to me that while the function could be put in the “genesis_after_header” hook area, of the Genesis Simple Hooks plug-in, the add_action still needs to occur.

    I have a client needing the same thing. He loves the look of the Metric Child Theme, but wants it to be responsive to mobile devices as well. Before I venture out on this task, I wanted to know if anyone else had already done it – officially.

    You don’t have to create a menu from scratch. Luckily, WordPress, Genesis and the Metric Child Theme already have the basic menu structure built, for you. However, you do have to “add” the links, to your menu.

    I just tried refreshing one specific website, ever couple of minutes, for over an hour. I did this on my laptop and my iPhone. The Genesis Latest Tweets Widget worked, for over an hour, without a problem. However, now it is back to reporting:

    The Twitter API returned an error while processing your request. Please try again.

    This tells me, a blocked IP Address, for the shared server, this particular (http://nhccigh.org) website is hosted on, IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

    I haven’t tried all the work-around options yet. So, I can’t make a suggestion about which option is better. I can say I do have a Twitter Widget working on http://bamajr.com and several other websites, using the widget Twitter provides. Their widget, never misses a beat.

    I’ve also read the explanation, provided by http://website-experts.ca/how-to-fix-showing-latest-tweets-on-your-website/ and it may be a great theory, but it is mostly non-sense. If an IP Address were blocked by the Twitter API, the Genesis Latest Tweets Widget would NEVER work. When, in fact, if you refresh the website enough, it will work, but only sometimes.

    This would lead me to believe, the issue is in fact, the Genesis Latest Tweets Widget, specifically in how it calls the Twitter API. My guess is the stumbling block is that it doesn’t actually get authorization, from the Twitter account, as an App – but this is just a theory, too.
