    Hi there. For the page in question, just go to the post editor screen for that page and you’ll find Layout Options settings and can set it to full width.

    Then, go to Settings > Reading and choose “A static page” and select the page you desire. That’s it!

    Cheers,

    Carrie

    It’s me again! Just a quick tip that if you’re the first to respond to your own post it looks like an “answered” post. :)

    Okay, let’s see what we can do…

    1. We need to hook in the post_meta above the title. Here’s the code you’ll want for that:

    remove_action('genesis_after_post_content', 'genesis_post_meta');
    add_action('genesis_before_post_title', 'genesis_post_meta');


    If that get’s you closer, but no cigar, try adding a higher priority to the action like this:

    add_action('genesis_before_post_title', 'genesis_post_meta', 5);

    Looks like your site is down so I can’t troubleshoot the CSS part, but try using Firebug to inspect the CSS in the browser so you can locate which style element you’ll need to change. Or you could poke around your style.css file and find the part that styles the post meta. :)

    2. I’m gonna call in the troops and see who knows the answer to this one.

    3. To get rid of the categories, try adding this to functions.php (from http://my.studiopress.com/snippets/post-meta/#customize):

    /** Customize the post meta function */
    add_filter( 'genesis_post_meta', 'post_meta_filter' );
    function post_meta_filter($post_meta) {
    if ( !is_page() ) {
        $post_meta = '[post_tags before="Tagged: "]';
        return $post_meta;
    }}

    As for the CSS, again it’s hard to troubleshoot without seeing your site live. Post a follow-up when you can and I’ll check it out.

    Cheers,
    Carrie

    I’m going to pop over to your other thread and respond if you want to close this one!

    I wonder if the Facebook approach of using an image_src meta tag would work for LinkedIn?

    <link rel="image_src" href="http://URL-TO-YOUR-IMAGE" / >

    Hey Cliff,

    Sounds like you’re using a custom template? There’s a post terms shortcode built-in or you can filter into a page template, too. See if this might be what you’re looking for? http://code.garyjones.co.uk/post-taxonomy-terms-shortcode

    If I pointed you in a wrong direction, let me know and I’ll try to get you in the right one!

    Cheers,

    Nice! Love the Backstretch image added in. Also like the sticky menu bar. And, favorite all, there’s a chocolate lab involved – Put your pup on the 404 page! :)

    I’m viewing on full-screen, but looking good there. Now get to blogging. ;)

    You’re throwing some curve balls at me! ;)

    You couldn’t do that with the Grid Loop plugin, but you *could* if you wrote a custom loop. You’d probably be better with the widgets in that case, for the sake of ease.

    Hi Peter,

    I’m interested to hear what LinkedIN support says. I’ve seen a lot of threads similar to this but dealing with Facebook. Haven’t seen a good answer for LinkedIn yet…

    Cheers,

    Carrie

    Eh, it really depends on what you’re wanting to accomplish. If you want the grid layout on the home page as well as your other archive pages, I’d go with the plugin!

    Hi there,

    The grid loop can be a mysterious beast when you first start to look into it. :)

    If you take a standard loop (say on a post archive page that lists the most recent posts), it’ll spit out a vertical list. The grid loop, by comparison, adds in some CSS classes. Instead of spitting out a vertical list, it’ll display posts in columns (of 2, 3, 4, whatever).

    Some StudioPress themes have the grid loop functionality built in (i.e. The Balance Theme) and others do not (i.e. Lifestyle).

    The grid loop doesn’t have anything to do with widget areas (though I can see how widget areas on a home page could sort of mimic the look of a grid loop).

    For themes that don’t have the grid loop built in, you can install Bill Erickson’s Genesis Grid plugin.

    If you really want to get your head swimming, here are some Bill Erickson posts you can walk through (in this order!) that set the stage for the grid loop:

    Hi there,

    I looked at your site and it appears to be working? What was the fix?

    Thanks,

    Hi Julie,

    You could get hacky and try to align those via CSS, but that could mess things up on your mobile display. I’d recommend tailoring your intro text to be the same length for each element and inserting the <!–more–> tag. Then you can use display full content in those widgets (I *think*) and it’ll only bring back whatever content is above the <!–more–> tag.

    So your about us page might look like this:

    ————-

    Welcome to Kindred Homes & Construction (KHC) website! We build custom homes, remodels and additions, as well as new commercial construction.

    <!–more–>

    the rest of your page…

    ————–

    Then, in your featured page widget, set it to return “Content” instead of “Content Excerpt”. If each page has about the same number of characters before the <!–more–> page, it’ll even out. :)

    Maybe not the best approach, but it’s what I’d try!

    Also, you could decrease your font size on those page titles (#home-featured .featured h2 a) so they all fit on one line OR change About Us and Custom Homes to be slightly longer so they bump to two lines for uniformity.

    Cheers,

    Carrie

    Is your site live that you could post a link? You might re-check home.php since that’s where the Portfolio widget is actually called to display.

    Hi Shan,

    When you reply to your own topic it bumps that topic out of the “Topics with no replies” list (http://www.studiopress.com/forums/view/no-replies), which makes it harder for forum volunteers to locate and respond to.

    When you submitted a support ticket, did you get an immediate auto-response? If not, something may have gone awry with the submission. If that’s the case, let me know so I can provide that feedback to the StudioPress folks.

    Cheers,

    Carrie

    p.s. Sorry I don’t know about centering the menus!

    Hi there,

    Yep, you are absolutely correct. Genesis (and WordPress) are licensed under GPL, which gives you great freedom to modify for your own use.

    That said, I would recommend leaving a reference to Genesis in the child theme stylesheet – maybe something like “XYZ is a custom child theme based on the Associate Whatever Theme and built on the Genesis Framework”.

    You’re not *obligated* to do that at all — I recommend it so that if another developer/designer were to pick up your code, they’d have the a reference point. That’s how I credit my own themes, at least. :)
