I have that installed already, yes. Still have those problems.
I’m still not getting the rollover effect. Any other ideas?

Can someone help me with the original question please? I can send you the login privately.March 2, 2013 at 8:16 am in reply to: adding letterspacing to NEWS theme dropdown menu items #23733
Tried again: it’s neither h1 nor h2 nor even h3. Now what?March 1, 2013 at 1:13 pm in reply to: adding letterspacing to NEWS theme dropdown menu items #23562
Sorry, just now getting back to this – have been busy with other work. Ok, I took firebug and selected a menu item in the NEWS theme main navigation menu, and tried the submenu too. I can’t figure out if the type there is h1, h2 or what. How can I tell?
HALLELUJAH! With a little more research, I found exactly what I needed: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-author-byline/
Tip: I had to use the word “byline” in my search – duuh!
Oh, holy hell, it gets worse! I installed a plugin called Co-Authors Plus. Tried modifying an author” seemed to work in the backend, but not the frontend. I read the plugin’s FAQ and got this: http://vip.wordpress.com/documentation/incorporate-co-authors-plus-template-tags-into-your-theme/
I’m not a code person, and the people on the team who will be maintaining this site are even more clueless than me. I use WordPress precisely for that reason: so I don’t have to deal with code! But the ability to display authors in the meta data under an article’s title without signing them up as users is a crucial feature: I need to be able to do this. There MUST be another way!
And just so I could say I at least tried, I took a deep breath, found the functions.php file for the NEWS theme, added the code as instructed on that link you sent, made sure I clicked all the buttons to make the guest-author addition take effect on the test page I made, and nope – it didn’t work. It’s still saying that that page was published by the admin’s name (default).
Also, there’s no way to even add users without having real e-mail addresses associated with them.
Ouch! That’s way scarier than me or anyone on my team can deal with. Isn’t there a plugin that can make this happen without having to go play with code? I looked at Genesis simple edits, but I don’t think that’s it. Adding authors will be a crucial feature of this job – I need to find an easy way to do it.
Can anyone please provide an explicit example? I’m not so great with code…
I’m not good with code: can anyone help me edit the type on the Genesis Responsive Slider widget any other way, or give me a step-by-step example with code please?January 4, 2013 at 4:04 pm in reply to: NEWS theme flux not displaying in middle bottom widget #9587
Ooh, thanx for that plugin, it’s better that the “under construction” one I was using. I switched! But I can’t pay for pro just now, and am not sure that the secret client link would let you in to admin anyway. If someone would like to help me in a private message, let me know and I’ll give you access.
