    I realize what’s up now — you’re using version 1.01 of Minimum. I was assuming you were using the latest version.

    So, to confirm, you want the button as seen in the new version of minimum at http://demo.studiopress.com/minimum ?

    Adding this CSS to your style.css and then using the class as indicated above should take care of it.

    a.page-title-button {
    -moz-border-radius: 5px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    background-color: #3e3e3e;
    border-radius: 5px;
    color: #fff;
    float: right;
    font-size: 24px;
    margin: 7px 45px 0 0;
    padding: 11px 20px 10px;
    }

    a.page-title-button:hover {
    background-color: #ed702b;
    }

    Hi!

    If you’re wanting to mimic the “Subscribe Now” button as seen as the demo, you just need to add a particular class to your link.

    For your “Member Login” case, add a link as such: <a class="page-title-button" href="http://LOGINlocation">Member Login</a>.

    Hope that helps!

    in reply to: Minimum Theme – Best Practices for Featured Images #18595

    My two cents is install this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/genesis-minimum-images-extended/

    Jesse Petersen (along with myself, Nick the Geek, and Robert from FAT Media) put this plugin together to help with some of the issues we faced with Minimum.

    1. The featured image is also (likely) used by Facebook, etc as a thumbnail when sharing, so a big rectangular image may not crop/reduce down to look good.

    2. But, an image that looks good in the smaller thumbnail likely won’t above the fold on a post in Minimum.

    With the plugin, I’d have a “featured image” that looks good as a square. If you upload something larger than the thumbnail size, WordPress will create a smaller version of the image. Your site speed wouldn’t be impacted by this (though, both versions of the image are on your server, so if you upload all 3000×3000 images, you’ll use a lot of space!)

    Then, again with the plugin, you can upload “banner” images that better fit the rectangular space. 1600px width is what the theme is prepared to handle, but it would use smaller if you uploaded it. It’ll take up as much height as you give it.

    The plugin will default back to the featured image if no banner is uploaded.

    I hope that helps some!

    in reply to: Family Tree, Regular Blog Page for front page? #18329

    Hmm.. Testing it out, it seems to be an issue on any theme if you set it up like that. So, let’s punt to a different suggestion and ignore that issue.

    In your functions.php file, look for the line that starts with
    add_action( ‘template_redirect’, ‘familytree_conditional_actions’ );
    Replace that line and the lines that follow (up to, but including the random-looking } with the this code.

    If you compare the original with what I linked, all we are doing is adding “|| is_home()”, which is telling WP to apply the fancy dates to the home page as well.

    The Settings->Reading should be set to “your latest posts”.

    Thanks for sharing that. I’ve used some third-party systems (disqus is what I use currently) and have been spared mostly. I still get more trackback spam than I’d prefer.

    Spammers, bleh.

    Thanks again.

    You should be able to copy and paste this into the end of your functions.php file:

    That’ll change the logout URL to whatever the site URL is configured to be.

    I *think* this will do it for you…

    (you may have already done the first part of this…)
    1. Create a new page for your site. Title it whatever you want (Home), etc. Content doesn’t matter.
    2. On the right-hand side, under the publish button, look for Page Attributes.
    3. Change Template from Default Template to Blog
    4. Save.

    (this is what is new, I think).
    5. Go to Settings->Reading from the left-side nav in wp-admin
    6. Change Front Page displays from “your latest posts” (which home.php uses) to A static page
    7. Choose the new page you made (or your existing blog page).
    8. Save

    Add the code from this gist to your functions.php file:

    Yeah – you can download Genesis (parent) again and replace everything in your genesis folder, then remake the mods in the sample child theme.

    For you or anyone else who stumble across this post, you don’t want to edit the parent /genesis/ theme at all as when a new version of Genesis is released, all modifications would be lost on update. No good!

    First, as a reminder, be sure to use a child theme for any modifications. To make the default Genesis theme a child theme, use this: http://www.studiopress.com/free-themes/sample

    On the 1.9 default, they changed the way they hid the submit button from how they did it in Minimum.

    At or about like 1136, you’ll see .enews input[type="submit"], .search-form input[type="submit"] { with border 0, clip: rect(0,0,0,0), etc.

    If you want to get the submit button back for both the enews widget and the search feature (header right on the demo), remove that CSS section.

    If you want just the .enews submit to return, remove .enews input[type="submit"], from that line.

    The simplest way to see how they hid it is check out the page using either Chrome’s Developer Tools, Firebug or your tools of choice for your browser. You’ll always see the submit button in the html code, so the corresponding CSS will show you the trick they used this time to hide it :-)

    in reply to: Plugins Updated for WP 3.5.1??? #16783

    Yeah, it’s not used. It’s kinda funky – you have to be logged into WordPress.org and visit the plugin’s page to vote on that.

    Plugin authors can update the readme.txt in their plugins (that populate the info seen in the wordpress.org page for the plugin) without uploading a new version. I think encouraging plugin authors to do that would be the best prospect for success.

    Good idea.

    What OS are you on? I’m trying to recreate the issue on my end to see if I can figure it out.

    FWIW, it looks right on Windows 8 on latest versions of Chrome, Firefox and IE.
