    Just popped in to say Soliloquy, so I’ll add my vote instead. Unlike most sliders, Soliloquy lets you just do images, rather than featured posts or pages. You can link them to posts/pages if you want, but they can do images. They accept HTML in the captions (so you can do a fancier “more” link if you want), and can be linked. You can create multiple sliders, though I don’t think you can (nor should you) have more than one slider on a page.

    I’m looking for info on containers as well before posting a thread and came across this one. My comment is completely irrelevant to your issue, but I just wanted to tell you I peeked to see if it was resolved and your site is fantastic!

    in reply to: Image between Header and Menu on Outreach Pro #101545

    I actually just did this on Outreach Pro. I added “Featured Image” capability to pages and added wrap support so it would behave with minimal css effort.

    In functions.php file add ‘featured-image’ to the list under “support for structural wraps.” Then add the following:

    //** Add the featured image section */
    	add_action( 'genesis_after_header', 'gs_featured_image', 5 );
    	function gs_featured_image() {
    	if ( is_singular( array( 'post', 'page' ) ) && has_post_thumbnail() ){
    		echo '<div class="featured-image">';
    		genesis_structural_wrap( 'featured-image');
    		echo get_the_post_thumbnail($thumbnail->ID, 'header');
    		genesis_structural_wrap( 'featured-image', 'close' );
    		echo '</div>';
    	}
    }
    

    In css add:

    .featured-image {
    	text-align: center;
    	width: 100%;
    	margin-bottom: 25px;
    	margin-bottom: 2.5rem;
    	padding-top: 25px;
    	padding-top: 2.5rem;
    }
    

    Play with the css a little to get it how you need it.

    Hope this is helpful!

    Holy cow that’s gorgeous! Don’t know what I love more, the fixed backgrounds or the textured one at the top. Because I loves me a good paper texture. They’re rare, but you nailed it! Congratulations!

    I have the same problem in Firefox, as well. Somebody in Google+ gave me a code snippet to fix it but it has disappeared from my feed. Ugh!

    The problem is that rather than the icon showing in the little square you get a set of letters/numbers in the box instead.

    Just to add to this (I posted this in another thread) I just installed Conditional CAPTCHA on a site with Akismet. If Akismet thinks it’s spam then the CAPTCHA shows up. So it’s pretty unobtrusive and gives real commenters a shot of getting through. I’m going to go install it on my personal blog to see if my spam folder stops growing.

    I just installed a plugin called Conditional CAPTCHA. It works with Akismet so that what happens is if Akismet thinks a comment is spam, then it puts a simple CAPTCHA on there, which is very easy to read for humans, doesn’t force all commenters to use it.

    I don’t see an answer to this here or in the other thread so I’m posting my solution here.

    In the responsive design section under max-width: 960px around line 2423 you’ll find a very long list of selectors with the following:

    {
    box-sizing: border-box;
    width: 100%;
    }
    

    Add #footer-widgets to the list and it should do its responsive thing.

    Oh EssaySnark – thanks so much!!! I just deleted ‘optimal’ and that was all it took! Wahoo! If this was a learning opportunity for you, it was a very wisely chosen one.

    Many thanks,
    BossLady :)

    Hi Dave,
    So glad I found this post! I’m struggling a little and need some guidance, though. I inserted your code and in the media uploader I can see the name I gave my image size but no image size in parentheses and I’m not able to click on it. I get a little confused about what I’m supposed to replace and I think that’s my issue here. The “ddw” is throwing me a little because I know that child theme names get used in the php functions, but I’m not sure that is the case here. Also, where it says “your-textdomain” I’m not sure what to put there, either. I’m using Optimal theme, so I put optimal in there but it isn’t working, so I’m thinking clearly that’s not it.

    Here’s what I added to the bottom, if it helps:
    `add_filter( ‘image_size_names_choose’, ‘ddw_show_custom_image_sizes_in_uploader’ );
    /**
    * Show custom image sizes in media uploader.
    *
    * @author David Decker – DECKERWEB
    * @link http://deckerweb.de/twitter
    */
    function ddw_show_custom_image_sizes_in_uploader( $sizes ) {

    $sizes['home-slider'] = __( ‘Home Slider’, ‘optimal’ );

    return $sizes;
    }
    `

    And for the image I just added
    `add_image_size( ‘home-slider’, 600, 350, TRUE );`
    underneath the other ones Wes (Appfinite) added.

    Thanks so much for any help/course correction – truly appreciated!!

    I always do this – dangit!! I’m so sorry! I got it as soon as I hit send for this. I just added the following right above  the if ( function exists:

    `printf( ‘News’, ‘minimum’ );`

    Now off to CSS land!

    omg… I just realized I was looking at Minimum – my solution is for Modern Portfolio theme. So sorry! But I don’t see why it couldn’t be attempted.

    PS… I should also say that I had to use !important on the color:transparent, and I have the height set to 225 because that’s how tall my logo is. You’ll need to adjust it for your own image.
