I just did this last night, successfully for the most part.
Offline I cloned the Executive Pro folder and renamed it with my child theme (I use Dreamweaver to do this editing). I also did a screenshot of my test site home page and saved it as screenshot.png and put this into the root directory of the child theme.
In functions.php and style.css I did the following:
Where it said Executive Pro, I substituted Newname (my new name has no spaces)
Where it said executive, I substituted newname (or new-name if my own theme name had spaces)
Where I found executive-pro, I substituted newname (or new-name if my own theme name had spaces)
** Now Dreamweaver sees all the files referred to in the folder and prompted me to change executive to newname in all the other php files in the folder, and that step is not referred to in the article, so I have no idea if that is correct, but it makes sense to me.**
I uploaded this new theme folder via FTP through Dreamweaver, I assume that if I had zipped it first, I’d be able to upload through usual WordPress theme upload process.
Logged in to the site and changed the theme to the new theme.
I checked all the items in the customizer, especially the navigation had to be reseslected.
I’ve done this for several client sites, and skipped it for others. It has always worked immediately for me, though I don’t think that I did the step about changing theme name in all the supporting php files.
In this case, all is well except on the Blog page and individual blog posts, the Titles are not showing up and the meta is styled differently. So that is what I’m asking for help on in another post on the forum.
How does one code the functions.php to call in featured pages instead of featured posts?
Ideally I would choose one featured page to show all content in the Welcome Widget (though as I do it in my test it has the shaded background behind the content, rendering it unreadable, so I’d need to change that in CSS)
And then have 2-4 boxes below with the other featured pages.
Wonderful! I got item #4 to work.
#3 did not work for me so we just decided to lighten the background color of the pages.
#2 This particular theme does not have a site description defined in functions.php though this is in CSS. What needs to be changed to make it show up?
#1 I don’t know a thing about JS and am not in a position to hire anyone for this site (for my niece) so will have to let this item go unless you can give details.
I really like the changes you made with the transparency in the header area, it lightens the weight of that part of the site. How did you get a header image in the background there to be only at top of page? When I insert a background image it covers the entire site.June 18, 2014 at 11:24 pm in reply to: Outreach Pro page background vs home page background #110509
It would be great to know how you fixed this, as I am curious about this too.
I’ve successfully added 4 text widgets in Home-Bottom and they show up horizontally as they are supposed to.June 18, 2014 at 7:49 pm in reply to: Migratiting a static site into WP, keeping URLs intact #110466
I am also migrating a site with HTML pages and a WordPress blog (using HTML appended to all permalinks ) to an all-Wordpress site. The blog posts are all in a subfolder called Blog so each permalink is http://sitename.com/blog/postname.html.
I really do not want to continue that HTML permalink naming convention but also don’t want client to have links to existing posts become broken and produce errors. I was hoping to export all of her posts using WordPress Export tool to an XML file (with comments), install WordPress at the root level of her site, erasing all the existing HTML static pages, then import all the posts back in with the category of “blog” and same post name but without HTML.
wouldn’t it be possible to add some lines to htaccess and redirect all http://sitename.com/blog/*.html to http://sitename.com/blog/*? Can you even do redirection if the original file is no longer there?April 28, 2014 at 2:32 pm in reply to: How to Remove Transparency of Minimum Pro Header Image #102799
I did not find a solution to make the image on my site into something that shows above the tagline and scrolls with the page as I see on standoutbooks.com.
I DID use your recommended solution to move nav bar below the logo area, but now it scrolls off the page in desktop mode rather than remaining static, and in mobile mode it doesn’t shrink to a small responsive menu,
I know that this is two different topics too. Sorry about that.
I never did figure this out. My site is now live, and still has the same issue.
It is now at http://robinbachbodysense.com
Is this thread still open? The same thing has happened to one of my client sites, all I’ve done recently is added the Responsive Header and ithemes Security and posted two posts for her.
When I look in Appearance/widgets, the widget content is there, however on the site, the footer area does not show up at all, not even the colored background.

All of a sudden the entire footer area is gone on my site. I’m using the Prose theme. The widgets are still set in Appearances. If you could share what you discovered bhpadgett, it could help the rest of us.
Hmmm, I certainly missed that part. Having just built a site using the old Agency, I thought that I had a simple answer for you. I am unfamiliar with the amplified widget, will have to learn about it. I am NOT one of the Studiopress Whiz kids, hope that one of them answers for you.
I believe that you didn’t check to use Featured Image in the setup of your home middle widget.
and then you need to add a featured image for each post used.
Did you grab the instructions for setting up Agency Pro when you downloaded it? This is the home middle setup section
How to Configure the Home Middle Widget Area
Use a Title of your choice to describe the types of posts being featured in this area
Select the category you wish to have displayed in this area
The Agency Pro Theme demo is designed to show 6 featured posts in this widget area
Check the box to display Featured Images
Select the home-middle Image Size
Select the Image Alignment option of “None”
Check the box to display Post Title
Select the Content Type of “Show Content LImit
Limit Content to 180 Characters
Use the word “More” in the More Text field
Be sure to click the “Save” button to preserve your changes.
I did this on my site, with help, look at this thread.January 30, 2014 at 10:46 pm in reply to: Agency Pro – remove hover on home middle for additional screen sizes #87917
I had just posted that my middle widgets are 3 columns across with large screen, and as soon as display is reduced slightly, they go to 1 column with 6 widgets vertically. Is that the problem that you had and he fixed? Is your test site showing the fixed version?
