    Hi Jodzee,

    Here’s a tutorial on setting up the AgentPress home page you might find helpful: http://www.carriedils.com/homepage-agentpress-theme/2076

    Here is another post explaining the differencebetween AgentPress and the third-party IDX plugin used in the theme demo: http://www.carriedils.com/agentpress-dsidxpress-dssearchagent/797

    As for thumbnails for category listings, you are correct: you need to assign featured images to those posts.

    Take a look at those tutorials and see if that helps clarify things for you. If not, I’d kindly request opening a new thread with one or two specific questions at a time – It’s overwhelming to cover all the bases in a single response. :)

    Cheers,

    Carrie

    Did you upgrade to Genesis 1.9.1? There was a release shortly after 1.9 that addresses some style issues.

    You have right-click and view source disabled on your site, so I can’t get a look at your code. But if you’ve updated to 1.9.1. and are still having issues, you might consider submitted a ticket to the help desk here:

    Hi Jill,

    You can add a conditional statement to your code above. It’d look something like this

    add_filter( ‘excerpt_more’, ‘child_read_more_link’ );
    add_filter( ‘get_the_content_more_link’, ‘child_read_more_link’ );
    add_filter( ‘the_content_more_link’, ‘child_read_more_link’ );

    function child_read_more_link() {
    if (!is_category( ’347′ ) || !in_category( ’347′ ) )
    return ‘<a class=”more-link” href=”‘ . get_permalink() . ‘” rel=”nofollow”>Continue Reading…</a>’;
    }

    You can find a full list of WordPress conditional tags here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags. The is_category conditional checks to see if it’s the archive page for ’347′ and the in_category checks to see if the current post is in category ’347′. If either of those statements is false, it’ll return your customized read more link.

    Cheers,

    Carrie

    Hi RSB,

    Are you still running WP 2.7? I would strongly recommend bringing your installation up to date, both your WordPress install and the Genesis Framework – running outdated versions leaves you vulnerable from a security standpoint.

    I’m not sure if the Corporate Theme you’re running is the most current version. It looks like you’ve made some customizations, so you might want to hold off on a child theme update.

    I can’t make any guarantees that the updates won’t impact your layout or customizations, so definitely backup your database and theme files before doing any updates.

    I’d update WordPress first, then check your site. Then update plugins (if needed) one by one, and check your site. Lastly, I’d update to Genesis 1.9, and check your site. :) Doing the updates in that order will help you pinpoint where things went awry (if they did).

    Be prepared to spend some time tweaking just in case, but I would 100% recommend bringing your installation up to date.

    Just my two cents,

    Carrie

    Hi Anita,

    You can still find video tutorials sprinkled in here: http://my.studiopress.com/tutorials/.

    There are additional video tuts available on http://studiopress.tv/.

    Not sure about an AgentPress-specific video tutorial, but here’s a pretty nice written post on set up: http://my.studiopress.com/setup/agentpress-theme/

    Cheers,

    Carrie

    Hi there, the site looks very nice! With your source code minified, it’s hard to see if there might be excessive scripts running, etc, but the page load was just fine for me.

    Pingdom.com has a great tool for checking page load times. It’ll show load times and server trips for each script – might be helpful for you as you’re fine-tuning.

    Good work!

    When you say wp_get_attachment_image is outputting text, is it literally printing wp_get_attachment_image to the screen? If so, you might have accidentally put it in quotes so that it’s being parsed as text and not PHP.

    Can you paste the exact code you’re using?

    Cheers,

    Carrie

    This may not answer your question directly (I’m still trying to wrap my head around rem), but I found this article helpful: http://snook.ca/archives/html_and_css/font-size-with-rem

    I think you can use the CSS visiblity element. Something like this in your stylesheet:

    @media only screen and (max-width: 768px) { //change that pixel width to whatever screen size

    .your-widget-class { visiblity: hidden; }

    }

    Oh yes, functions.php can be a dangerous place to play! I recommend having FTP up and running so you can dash in and manually remove anything from the file in case of emergency.

    StudioPress themes are great enough without customizations, but if you ever get the itch (and you just might!), it’s a lot of fun to get in there and tinker.

    Until then,

    Carrie

    Yep, you got it! If you’re on a single-author blog, then the author archives just look like a duplicate of your regular archive. Disabling that eliminates any perceived duplicate content by a search engine.

    I’m not an SEO expert, but I don’t think there’s any harm in leaving your regular archive page (what you see on a 404) as is. But of course, it’s always nice to customize. :)

    The plugin disables those specific archive pages (author.php and date.php), it does not remove references to those pages from archive.php (That can get confusing! You might find the template hierarchy helpful – http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy)

    In short, the SEO plugin took access to those pages out of the mix, but since they’re part of the Genesis archive template (archive.php), you’ll need to customize via one of the options above.

    Once you throw an error in functions.php, it’s impossible to edit any further in the WP dashboard. You’ll need to access the file via FTP and remove the code that way. That should reset you.

    Before adding in this code, make sure you remove your previous code so it doesn’t throw another error. :)

    Not directly related, but still helpful… You might like this article (http://surefirewebservices.com/wordpress/how-to-use-remove_action-with-conditional-tags). It explains the why of using functions.

    You can use wp_get_attachment_image to grab the image associated with your taxonomy. It might look like this:

    wp_get_attachment_image( $term->image_id, ‘thumbnail’ )

    So, incorporated into your $post_meta it would work like this:

    $post_meta = ‘[post_terms before="Bucket Rating: " taxonomy="rating"]‘ . wp_get_attachment_image( $term->image_id, ‘thumbnail’ ) . ‘more stuff’;

    Note that $terms is the name of a particular taxonomy. You can set that variable dynamically if you’re looping through multiple taxonomies or hardcode it.

    Experiment with it and let me know if that sets you in the right direction.

    Cheers,
