    Thanks Ted for marking this resolved.

    For anyone finding this thread, one common reason for these settings to disappear is Genesis automatically deactivates this area when  another SEO plugin is detected.

    Cheers!

    It is pretty easy, I believe.

    Does adding this code to your home.php file do it for you?

    Hi,

    The background in Agency is from the body (e.g. line 152 in your styles) and is a graphic. You can add CSS for #header { background: #00b5d6; }, but that would only include the section inside of the wrap (likewise, you can change line 152 to exclude the URL completely).

    If you want the same effect of a screen-wide background color, may be easiest to edit that graphic in your theme’s images folder.

    Cheers!

    Hi Matteo,

    Add this code to the end of your functions.php file in the minimum folder:

    Then you can adjust the value (currently 15) to however many posts you’d like. The value of 10 from the Settings->Reading will not impact this.

    Cheers!

    Hi Kimberly,

    It also could have been an issue with your theme. Minimum and a couple of others hide the submit button per the theme design.

    Cheers.

    Hi MusicWise,

    Can you include a link to your site, what service you’re wanting to use (FeedBurner? if so, what is your FeedBurner URL)?

    Thanks,

    Hi Bassjamm,

    Have you checked out Brian Gardner’s tutorial: http://www.briangardner.com/email-newsletter-signup-box/

    It’s probably the best starting off point.

    Cheers,

    BK

    Check out the HTML source code. There is a single style rule after the title and before the meta. I’m not exactly sure where that is coming from—perhaps the Genesis->Theme Settings->Header Scripts?

    Perhaps a plugin or something in functions.php too. In either case, just tweaking that bit of CSS does it.

    Edited to include the following:

    Here’s a screenshot of everything:

    On the far left, you can see the 400px in the source code, in the inspector window next to it, I’ve changed it to 360px (361 and larger causes the issue). The right side shows the website with 360px title-area.

    Should clarify – the width of your title-area per the style rule in the html of your site itself (.header-image #header #title-area { width: 400px…..)

    It looks like the width of your header is too big. It’s at 400px now, knocking it down to 350px knocks the menu back up (the demo width is at 320px).

    Okay, I can confirm it isn’t working as I expected it. I’m bringing it to the lead dev’s attention to verify it is a bug or actually intended.

    In the meantime, you can add the following CSS in style.css to get it to work as expected. This would not adversely impact if you use the original featured image option or a future version of the plugin with this corrected. Thanks for alerting me.

    img#featured-image {
    width: auto;
    margin: auto;
    display: block;
    }

    I’m checking into it; that’s not the behavior I remember, but it’s been a few weeks since I touched it.

    I’m not seeing the dotted line (at the moment), but assuming you’re not an all-caps kind of gal, you can remove the text-transform: uppercase; line near line 1567 of style.css.

    That would normal-case all H2’s on your site. If you want H2’s upper, just not the home titles, we can get a little more specific.

    Hahaha.

    That’s a valid point and completely understandable. The absolute worst case would be to deactivate the plugin and it’ll default back to showing the featured image above each post. The worst-case-prevention would be upload a larger image as the featured, letting WP resize, but as you stated, that’s isn’t always ideal.

    A completely different alternative is to edit the theme directly to take out automatically using the featured image and then adding any large picture yourself in the editor. That would, though, be quite a bit different design-wise as it would fall under the title and within the smaller content area instead of full-width.

    For what it’s worth, the plugin is pretty simple and I’d be *shocked* if anything used is taken out of core (not using jQuery or something that could be updated in an unfavorable-for-the-plugin way, etc) . The only thing that may need to be updated at some point is for it to work with the new media manager, but it would be awhile before that was absolutely needed (as so many plugins, themes, etc use the older uploader). Just thinking aloud, I would think that if anything is depreciated that would render the plugin non-functional, would also knock out Minimum as a theme.

    To the chagrin of some other CMS developers, WordPress has been insanely good at maintaining backward-compat when introducing new features.

    Jesse and I (who have commit privs on it) aren’t going anywhere either; Brian Gardner would kick our butts if we packed up and left town. Don’t know if that helps any. :)

    Exactly. With the plugin, set the featured image to what you’d like to use a thumbnail (since the featured image is where a lot of places/plugins pull from) and then upload a separate banner image when wanted.

    One thing the plugin doesn’t—yet—is allow you to completely turn off the big banner image (it will default back to the featured image if a banner isn’t uploaded).

    I added that as a feature request and will work on pushing that out in the next release of the plugin.
