    Hi Ted,

    I haven’t looked but I’m sure there is more than one plugin in the WordPress Plugin Directory to set up ads. What you see on the Pretty demo site is simply a text widget.

    Hi Ted,

    Just looking at a copy of Pretty right now. Yes, this theme uses the Genesis Grid Loop. Take a look at home.php and you’ll see this …

    /** Add support for Genesis Grid Loop */
    function pretty_grid_loop_helper() {
    genesis_grid_loop( array(
    'features' => 2,
    'feature_image_size' => 'feature',
    'feature_image_class' => 'post-image',
    'feature_content_limit' => 300,
    'grid_image_size' => 'grid-thumbnail',
    'grid_image_class' => 'alignleft post-image',
    'grid_content_limit' => 150,
    'more' => __( '[Continue reading]', 'genesis' ),
    'posts_per_page' => 6,
    ) );
    }

    That is the Genesis Grid Loop. There are all sorts of things you can configure here. If you only want to display 1 teaser instead of 2 change …

    'features' => 2,

    to …

    'features' => 1,

    With respect to the images, you can set a feature image for each post while you’re in the Create Post screen. If you don’t set a feature image, it will automatically pull the first image from within the post (if there is one) and display that instead.

    Edit: this editor is mangling the code I’m trying post.

    Hi qleapent,

    Could you post a link to the site? It makes it easier for us to help. It sounds as if your theme is using the Genesis Grid Loop on a custom home.php file.

    Hi qleapent,

    You could do it simply by adding HTML to a text widget. However the site you reference seems to be using this plugin.

    Hi designbytracy,

    If you don’t mind spending the money BackupBuddy by iThemes is an excellent choice. I use it all the time. I’m sure others will chime in with some good free alternatives.

    Hi eachdaydeb,

    Looking at your style sheet I see you are trying to add the image like this …
    background: ("images/header.png") repeat-x;

    It should read …

    background: url(images/header.png) repeat-x;

    Note the addition of “url”

    Additionally, I tried to view the image directly and get a message that says “This image cannot be displayed because it contains errors”. Try re-editing or re-saving the image.

    Hi denissemarie,

    Re 2nd question: As Susan stated, Genesis Simple Hooks is probably the easiest way to do it. An alternative method is add the following to Eleven40′s functions.php file …

    // Relocate post info to after post
    remove_action( 'genesis_before_post_content', 'genesis_post_info' );
    add_action( 'genesis_after_post_content', 'genesis_post_info' );

    Hi Jen,

    That’s perfect! I had already figured out how to disable the extra settings but it was site-wide, not what I really wanted. I was trying to figure out how to disable them on the bbPress profile page only.

    Thanks a million. You saved me a whole bunch of time. :)

    Hi Jen

    Already using that plugin. Deactivated all other plugins to rule out any potential conflicts. I’m going to dig into the Genesis core to see if I can figure out what is what.

    Doh! The problem exists in all of my child themes as well. Guess I’m pushing out updates. I like your solution better John. I’m going to go with that. :)

    Awesome John! Just confirmed the problem with Outreach and verified your solution.

    Hi karentiede,

    You can try the Genesis Simple Menus plugin. It does what I think you want.

    You’re most welcome! :)

    ps: I already had a look at your other thread but that one has me stumped.

    I’m looking at a fresh copy of that theme right now. I see in functions.php it is forcing a content-sidebar layout for the home page. Open up Freelance’s functions.php file and comment out this bit …

    // Force layout on homepage
    add_filter('genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', 'freelance_home_layout');
    function freelance_home_layout($opt) {
    if ( is_home() )
    $opt = 'content-sidebar';
    return $opt;
    }

    Well for one thing, the Freelance theme comes with a custom widgetized home page (which I forgot about). But there seems to be some kind of error in the home.php file. Try renaming Freelance’s home.php file to something else, like home5.php or whatever.
