    We use the Yoast SEO plugin and get great value from it for our client websites. Here is an interesting article: http://wisdmlabs.com/blog/genesis-seo-vs-wordpress-seo-yoast-choose/

    Before you install plugins to your theme you should read the details to ensure that it is compatible with the current version of WordPress. If it is, you should check the reviews of the plugin to see if anyone else is experiencing issues as well. If they aren’t, then you should check to see if your plugins are conflicting with one another — turn them all off and then back on one by one testing as you go.

    If you get the white screen of death try checking to ensure that your hosting is set to php 5.4 — we had an issue with sites that had not yet been updated from php 5.2. Upgrading to php 5.4 resolved the issue.

    Hope this helps.

    No, Nick’s instructions are correct but when placing your php you need to choose a place in simple hooks that is not inside the site-inner container.

    From what I can see, it looks like you’ve put your code within the site-inner container which has a max-width of 1140px…your slider is 1850px wide and as a result it won’t fit within site-inner. A full width slider below the navigation needs to be outside of site-inner.

    So….You need to revisit the steps of registering your widget so that it is between nav-primary and site-inner. Once you’ve done that, then you can add your slider code again. Make sure that the css for the wrap within your slider widget has a max-width that is set to none.

    You are using a secondary navigation which we didn’t use in our design. You just need to put your php in a different place in Genesis Simple Hooks. You may have it in the wrong place. Try installing the plugin – Genesis Visual Hooks. will help you determine where in Simple Hooks the php should go.

    To get the slider full width you will need to adjust your css. You can use firebug to see what code we have used in our css to accomplish this.

    We did not use the background banner at the top of the home page in our design. We edited it out from the home page in CSS and just used the slider instead.

    Hi bhaynet,

    Sure. We just registered a new widget. See http://designsbynickthegeek.com/tutorials/add-widgeted-sidebar for information on how to do that.

    Second, we used Genesis simple hooks to be able to display the sidebar once we registered it by adding the php code as per the thread above (thanks to badlydrawnben).

    Third, you need to install the Genesis responsive slider plugin. Then, from the widget area move the Genesis Responsive Slider sub widget inside the new one you just created and set up the Genesis Responsive Slider the way you normally would.

    Hope this helps.

    You’ll need to style the slider using CSS if you want to change the width or background etc.

    Actually, the screenshot above is not for permalinks settings in the Yoast SEO plugin. Move down the left sidebar to where it says SEO and then go to the permalinks settings there. Make sure that the “strip the category base from the category URL” is NOT checked.

    I’m not sure if this will help you or not, but in the Yoast SEO plugin there is a setting under Permalinks that allows you to strip the category base from the category URL. If for some reason you have this enabled, it could be affecting your breadcrumbs.

    Mystery solved and I’m posting here should anyone else experience this. The Unknown posts were NOT caused by a hack. We are using Gravity Forms by RocketGenius. We had chosen to use a custom field (from the Posts Type section of Gravity Forms) in one of our forms. Everytime someone filled out the form it was creating the draft post. So, only use Standard and Advanced Fields for your regular forms — don’t use form fields from the Post section.

    Easy fix.

    We just had Wordfence do a scan with no vulnerabilities and complete success and no security issues to report. It’s a mystery.

    Thanks. I looked there and totally missed it. Wasn’t thinking that the archive settings affected the home page. Much appreciated.

    We have added this code to the BeautifulPro theme because we want featured images to show on the home page; however, although it adds the featured image to the single post page it is NOT adding it to the home page which is really where we want it to go.

    Can you help?

    Thanks for offering your help. Unfortunately, the slider has now completely disappeared from all pages. :(

    Hi there,

    I’m not that strong with php. This is what I currently have in the simple hooks box:

    <div class=”home-slider”>
    <?php dynamic_sidebar( ‘home-slider’ ); ?>
    </div>

    There is NO shortcode. We used the genesis responsive slider plugin inside a new widget we set up. Are you able to help further?
