    Rocky Top,

    Breaking your site is how you learn, as long as you can quickly un-break it! :)

    Seriously though, I don’t know how your custom author plugin will affect this, but if you add this code snippet to the bottom of your functions.php file it should (might) do the trick:

    /** Display author box on archive pages */
    add_filter( 'get_the_author_genesis_author_box_archive', '__return_true' );

    I just tried it on a site I’m currently developing and it added an author box at the top of the author archive page. Let me know if it works for you.

    John

    Use Firefox as your browser, and install Firebug. Chrome has a lite version of Firebug, but it’s not quite up to snuff with Firefox in this regard, in my opinion.

    Then search Google for “firebug tutorial,” or check this one out: http://www.w3resource.com/web-development-tools/firebug-tutorials.php

    Ahh, the joys of caching. Glad you got it figured out.

    WordPress assigns each widget an unique ID, and you can use that to drill down in your CSS to a particular widget. For example, the current Featured Post widget has an ID of

    #featured-post-5

    so we could have added that to the previous CSS code like this

    .featured-bottom #featured-post-5.featuredpost .post {
    border-bottom: none;
    }

    Then you could switch out “5″ with the ID of the new widget in some additional CSS and change the CSS accordingly.

    Best practice is to add any new code to the bottom of functions.php. You could even add a comment line below the standard stuff like this example, and add your code below that line:

    /* Custom Functions below this line
    ------------------------------------------------------------ */

    in reply to: Building a custom taxonomy page #5426

    I guess I should have added that detail – you can simply make a copy of your theme’s page.php, archive.php, or something similar, rename it like I mentioned above, and add that code to the new file. If your child theme doesn’t have one of those files you can find one in the Genesis folder.

    The important thing is that it has the opening php tag and the closing genesis(); function, with your code in between.

    Actually, this code should handle all three taxonomies, but one term at a time. You won’t need a separate file for each taxonomy. A real-life example is this page on a site I built for my wife, which displays a custom post type called ‘organizations’ that has four different taxonomies: http://aheartforjustice.com/organizations/

    Clicking on any of the taxonomy terms will display an archive page for that taxonomy term, listed alphabetically by ‘slug’. I adjusted the code I posted for you to list the posts by the title of the taxonomy term instead of the slug.

    Let me know if I’m not tracking with you on what you’re wanting to do.

    Create a new admin user and send me the info at john@blackhillswebworks.com. After I’m done you can delete that user account.

    I’m not sure – it’s always worked for me. Want me to take a look in the admin? That would be quicker than trying to figure this out without seeing it myself.

    Firebug isn’t showing a widget area there. This might be a silly question, but did you ‘Save’ the widget after adding it to the widget area?

    You’re welcome!

    Which method are you using to display the slider?

    I just re-read what you wrote about the warnings in Editor. That may very well be why your changes aren’t showing up.

    Lisa,

    Replace body with #content and I think you’ll find it works. Gravity Forms tends to override any changes made in style.css, but adding an ID gives your change priority.

    #content #gform_wrapper_1

    I wouldn’t technically call it a gallery of pictures, but here’s more info:

    Each slide is a “custom post type” and they are all managed in a section called Slideshows.

    Slides can be added to “Slide Groups” and then you can specify a different Slide Group for each instance of WooSlider on your site.

    A slide’s content can be just an image, an image linked to something else, an image and text, just text, and maybe other possibilities I haven’t thought of yet.
