    This was two different issues that I’ve finally solved.

    Here’s how to get the featured images on posts to work:

    http://www.studiopress.com/forums/topic/how-to-get-featured-images-to-work-on-blog-using-magazine-theme/#post-23934

    And here’s how I was able to add other items besides posts to the page:

    I hope this will help someone!

    Okay, I finally pieced together the puzzle. I was told I’d need to unhook the title and add it separately; however, I don’t know how to do any of that yet! So I went back to the plugin route and via a variety of tutorials, code snippets, and the Codex, I was able to get the featured images working the same as they were using the blog template. Yay!

    Plugin = Posts in Page

    Thank you! I was able to get it to work, but with some modification to enabling support and setting the size (the thumbnail code didn’t work for me and I remembered seeing this in the Codex):

    **  Enabling Support and setting size for Post Thumbnails   */
    if ( function_exists( 'add_theme_support' ) ) {
    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
    set_post_thumbnail_size( 300, 200 );
    }

    Then I added this from your instructions:

    /** Add Featured Image to Posts - the Webonanza style  */
    add_action( 'genesis_after_post_title', 'child_do_single_post_image' );
    function child_do_single_post_image() {
    if( is_single() )
    genesis_image( array( 'size' => 'post-thumbnail', 'attr' => array( 'class' => 'alignright post-image' ) ) );
    }

    Thanks again, I really appreciate the help and quick response!

    I tried changing the priority to a higher number, but that results in the title and the content being placed below the blog posts.

    Is there a way to have a page that contains the following:

    TITLE > BLOG POSTS > CONTENT

    or

    CONTENT > BLOG POSTS > CONTENT

    I’ve tried a plugin for this, but it seems to strip out the featured image. :(

    Alex: Did you get the featured image to work? I’m not sure if we have the same problem, but I’ve got a blog page that shows the thumbnails with the excerpts, but not on the post itself. It’s supposed to show on both, isn’t it?

    Today I tried changing the template “blog” and that made the images show up on the excerpts page, but the image does not show on the individual posts. Is this behavior supported in the AgentPress theme? Do I need to enable something?

    Ah! Thanks for the reply, I’ll try that. I guess I need to learn CSS better!

    In the meantime, I got it to work with this:

    .menu-section-head > a:first-child
    Thanks again for your help.

    Like this? If so, just change the layout.

    Thanks a bunch, Carrie! I’ll take some time to check that out. At first glance it looks very helpful :)

    I do have a couple other threads open, the intention of my brain dump here was to give feedback on how the current tutorial could be updated to be more helpful to noobs like me.

    Happy weekend!

    Yes, the AgentPress theme. Got it.

    I’m pretty new to all this, so unfortunately, sometimes I’m not clear on what’s a WP default versus part of the theme.

    I’m still working my way through it, but specifically, here are some things I noticed:

    I was able to follow the instructions pretty easily through maps and videos, after that it got trickier

    As I mentioned in another post, I had trouble getting the thumbnails to work for the category listings (am I supposed to assign a Featured Image?)

    I also found it challenging to get the Additional Photos to work (because there was no size setting)

    In the tutorial, it mentions something about the property map shortcode – typo?

    A few notes about how to configure the gallery plugin would be nice too – I happened across it and found I had choices — but I can’t find it anymore! :( Maybe this is a default WP thing, but it’d be nice to point out anyway

    I don’t see anything on how to set up the home page to look like the demo. I started by making it a full-width (it looks like that in the demo, no?), but I had trouble with padding issues (I have another post in the forum about that). Seems I have to adjust the CSS, so I skipped the home page and moved on for now.

    “Add Slider to the Widget Area” is mentioned. What is this – where on the demo is it shown?

    That’s all the farther I’ve gotten in the tutorial. Still tweaking and learning…

    p.s. Why can’t I get the bullets to work in this editor?

    Thanks!
