    I think the best solution for this is to create a page using the blog page template for each of the categories that you have then use something like the Simple 301 Redirect plugin to redirect http://www.yoursite.com/category/my-category/ to http://www.yoursite.com/my-category where my-category is the slug of the blog page. You’ll need to setup a redirect for each category but once this is done, you wont need to change any of the links in the breadcrumbs or post info as the old category links will just get redirected to the new blog page.

    Even though this plugin hasn’t been updated for a while, I use it a lot and it works fine.

    You may also find that Bill Ericksons plugin give you more options for your sub pages menu:

    I think you’ve done a good job, site looks nice and the header image works really well.

    I think the main area that needs focus is the sharing widget on the left, it doesn’t quite seem to work. I know these are usually hard to style effectively due to the code that is output but I think currently it detracts from the rest of the site.

    Also, try floating some of the images in the pages left or right rather than all centred with lots of white space around them.

    There seems to be an inconsistent use of fonts and colours on the homepage, maybe you’re just trying to highlight important stuff but it looks a little bit messy.

    I really like the output for the board of directors, are you using a plugin to manage this output?

    Are you trying to control the way the image gets cropped or resized? If so, there isn’t really a great control over this. You can choose whether images or resized to fit a specific size or hard cropped to be an exact match to your specific size but not to chose which bits get cut off.

    Can you share a link to this site or a development site please? Then we can take a look at what you’re trying to achieve and the best way to go about it.

    Thanks

    You’ll need to create an archive-custom_post_type_name.php file in your child theme folder under wp-content/themes/theme-name/ and then filter the image output. The two articles below should be able to help you:

    Hi,

    Looking at your website this issue has now been resolved? I’m seeing current page indications (orange bg) on the portfolio and tag pages.

    If it’s not behaving as you want, please provide some more information and I’ll take a look.

    Hi Maria,

    I can’t see the dates outputting on your site.

    Could you just add the updated class to the published date? Would that satisfy Google?

    Alternatively if Google / your requirements need both dates but you only want to show one of them, I think you’d be forced to hide the second one with CSS.

    It appears you are running some kind of minify / caching script. Did you clear your cache after updating the style.css file?

    Hi Nicole,

    I’m not sure quite how you’re trying to remove the text, or how you’ve done it previously but if you find the functions.php file in your wp-content/themes/corporate/ you can add the follow two lines of code to remove the title and description from the header.

    remove_action( 'genesis_site_title', 'genesis_seo_site_title' );
    remove_action( 'genesis_site_description', 'genesis_seo_site_description' );

    In style.css you need to add something like:

    .attachment-home-top {
    margin-bottom:20px;
    }

    Hi,

    I think you’re over complicating this a bit. There’s actually no need to duplicate the header.php file and location (although this is common when editing some other child themes that aren’t based on Genesis).

    I suggest you start by reading up on hooks here: http://my.studiopress.com/docs/hooks/
    What you essentially need to do is (this can all be done in functions.php in your child theme)

    Remove the title and tagline:

    remove_action( 'genesis_site_title', 'genesis_seo_site_title' );
    remove_action( 'genesis_site_description', 'genesis_seo_site_description' );

    Then write a function to output your widget area (note you will need to register your widget area too):

    function output_my_logo(){

    if ( !function_exists( 'dynamic_sidebar' ) || !dynamic_sidebar( 'logo' ) ) {
    }

    }

    Then add this function to the header using:

    add_action( "genesis_site_title", "output_my_logo");

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Penny,

    Not entirely sure how you want this to look in the end, the layout doesn’t look bad to me in its current state.

    I think the Gravity Form styles are overiding whatever you’re trying to change on the button. Try being more specific with your CSS selector or placing your button styles after the GF styles in style.css (it looks like the GF styles are around line 1741). Look for:
    div.gform_footer input.button,input[type="button"], input[type="submit"]
    Putting something like #header .widget area input[type=submit'] { your styles here;} might work.

    Hi Alex,

    http://my.studiopress.com/snippets/breadcrumbs/

    There is some information on the link above regarding changing the breadcrumbs. If you look at the last example, you should be able to modify the suffix or prefix markup to contain your additional div and then style it accordingly.

    Alternatively you could write a new function to output your code and hook it onto genesis_before_loop but this would have it separate from the breadcrumb loop and I believe you want it mixed in.

    Hope this helps.
