    Unfortunately, I’ve already done that. It still doesn’t work.

    My gravatar works in my author box, but not in the comments below it. Any idea why?

    And what about me? Why doesn’t my gravatar appear?

    Actually, the code for my WP blog would be:
    ## EXPIRES CACHING ##
    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
    ExpiresActive On
    ExpiresByType image/jpg “access plus 1 year”
    ExpiresByType image/jpeg “access plus 1 year”
    ExpiresByType image/gif “access plus 1 year”
    ExpiresByType image/png “access plus 1 year”
    ExpiresByType text/css “access plus 1 month”
    ExpiresByType application/pdf “access plus 1 month”
    ExpiresByType text/x-javascript “access plus 1 month”
    ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash “access plus 1 month”
    ExpiresByType image/x-icon “access plus 1 year”
    ExpiresDefault “access plus 2 days”
    </IfModule>
    ## EXPIRES CACHING ##

    I’ve added this code to my website .htaccess file (not my blog), and it has improved the speed substantially:

    ———–

    <FilesMatch "\.(ico|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf)$">
    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
    ExpiresActive on
    ExpiresDefault "access plus 30 days"
    </IfModule>
    Header unset ETag
    FileETag None
    </FilesMatch>
    ————–

    I wanted to add it to my blog too. Is it a good idea?

    Nick,

    I’ve used this code on my blog. Unfortunately, although it has removed the “Warning: Missing required field “updated”.”, it has also added a second ‘By Maria Fernandez” line to all my posts, as well as  “Updated: <date>”. These new lines make my blog unsightly.

    Is there a way I can add code that will remove the Warning without adding the “By <author>” and “Updated” lines?

    Chris, that worked great. I’ve now got the “Leave a comment” line back, and the “tagged with” and “filed under” areas are gone. Thanks.

    (There isn’t much risk of me being seen using Microsoft Word)

    Unfortunately the Simple Edits plugin appears to be incompatible with the Balance theme. It breaks other things when I install it. The hook solution suggested by braddalton, however, has worked beautifully.

    Here’s what I’ve done, in case someone else needs to remove the ‘filed under’ and ‘tagged with’ areas:

    1. Install the Genesis Simple Hooks plugin like any other plugin.

    2. Activate it.

    3. On the left-hand side menu, under ‘Genesis’, click on ‘Simple Hooks’.

    4. Find ‘genesis_after_post_content‘ and tick the box that says ‘Unhook genesis_post_meta() function from this hook?’

    5. Save Changes.

    That’s it. The unwanted lines will disappear in both your home page excerpts and individual posts.

    Marc, thanks for the links. I’ll bear them in mind.

    Thanks. For those of us trying to figure out everything at once: how do you ‘unhook’ something? Is there a particular code I need to add?

    Thanks, ryandonsullivan

    The puzzling is that I never got any lines next to menu items. I guess I don’t need to change anything then.

    (BTW: The two screenshots appear to be identical)

    Thanks, Susan. That should do the trick.

    anitac, thanks so much for all your help. I’m done for the day. Tomorrow I’ll look at the Genesis Bootstrap Carousel plugin.

    anitac, you’ve got the Genesis Bootstrap Carousel plugin. That’s a lot nicer than mine. I’m going to change to that slider.

    Wow! It’s now working!

    There was a line missing. Thanks so much.

    Do you know if there are some instructions on how to get pictures to show, rather than my blog posts. I’d like to have my products on the slideshow, rather than my posts. I’ve looked at the plugin settings, but it seems to be for posts and pages. I can’t see where to set the pictures.
