    anitac, do you know of any good resources that explain how to properly use hooks? I have never worked with these before and I just tried to follow the steps at this site without any success: http://wpcandy.com/teaches/how-to-use-wordpress-hooks/

    The code I am trying to add to my site is found at the following site. They require that the code is added to footer.php but as you had suggested I am trying to add that code to functions.php instead and then somehow use a hook to access footer.php.

    http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-create-a-sticky-floating-footer-bar-in-wordpress/

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Alright, that makes sense. :) I can look into changing functions.php instead. Thanks for the info!

    Both are in my post above.

    Theme: eleven40 Pro
    Site is in my signature: http://www.markblair.net/

    Either way this is something that everyone using Genesis will see as the only templates in the child theme are:

    functions.php
    home.php
    page_landing.php
    style.css

    You have to go to Genesis templates to see footer.php, header.php, page.php, etc.

    Hi boulderb, try the following plugin and see if you get the results you are looking for. I had this one installed and it worked fine for me. I only removed it after trying a different plugin that does not add the social networks.

    Comments Evolved for WordPress

    @ Brad, I have been playing with the code a bit to try and remove and/or hide the web URL in the comments form. So far I have not been successful. If you wouldn’t mind sharing, where did you find that code and what did you do to remove it? Thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback. Do you require people to register or just enter their details and the url field is not an option?

    Thanks again!

    Hi Terry,

    Sorry I had a plugin enabled to disable right clicking. :) I just tried again by using the second version on your blog (that’s what I was using earlier as well) and then removing the tagline under Settings > General. This time it worked. :) I only see one tagline (the one from your code) and it has what I wanted in it.

    I have left off the plugin I mentioned above in case you wanted to see anything by right-clicking. Thanks again for all your help and for everyone’s assistance throughout this thread. :)

    Terry,

    Thank you for this information. Unfortunately I’m having problems. :( I tried the first bit of code you have on your site and it changed the entire “tagline” background to be dark and forced the text to the left. I may have been able to modify it but I then tried the second part of the code you mentioned. That did exactly what I was looking for… except… it showed the tagline twice. I had the original one I added in the General section and the one from your code. I removed the tagline from the General section and it removed both. I added it back and now both are showing again. How can I just get one tagline with HTML?

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for the additional information. I followed your instructions and for me, at least on my site, what this does is replace what’s currently in my tagline with the code I enter where it says return ‘put the exact string you want output as your tagline, including markup here’;

    So, because I put HTML in that spot it shows the HTML code and doesn’t actually do anything with it. Basically it looks like a normal text box. Others may get different results but this is at least what happens when I tried this.

    Thanks again! :)

    I was able to figure out how to get the code from Carrie Dils’ site working. I modified it to match what I wanted but it is still not perfect. Even with the CSS setup properly the text and code I have in the new widgets is not formatting as they should. I think this is going in the right direction and I will play with this more as I have some time. :)

    Thanks for providing this info!

    Hmm, I like the idea. And I tried something similar a few days ago but I backed out when it caused my site to look all messed up. I am trying to follow the instructions on the page you linked to and so far it is not working. The second part where she talks about the mp_cta_genesis code does not mention where that actually should go. Based on the rest of her post, I assume it is intended for the function.php file. I tried that and so far nothing new is showing up.

    I am still playing with this and hope that this will work.

    I saw in another post on this forum where someone turned off the visibility of the tagline, although the text was still there. So maybe for SEO purposes if the tagline exists it will be captured by Google and having it hidden will help with the code from Carrie Dils!? Stuff to try out I suppose. :)

    Aimee, I found a potential fix to this but I have yet to implement it successfully. According to the following two pages, you can add HTML to the tagline by making some changed to the header.php template. Problem is, there is no header.php template for eleven40 Pro. There is one in the Genesis core but every one of those templates says not to touch them and even after I tried a few things, I still can’t get this to work.

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/html-in-taglines-possible?replies=1#post-1993579

    http://englishmike.net/2008/07/03/wordpress-quick-tips-2-embedding-html-in-blog-titles-and-descriptions/

    Now, the real problem here is that I cannot find the bloginfo(‘description’) code that is supposed to be in this header.php file. The second link above (which is the fix – the first link just talks about it) mentions that it might not be in header.php. I still cannot find the right place to make this change.

    Maybe if others see this they will know how to implement this change. It sure would be nice to be able to use HTML in the tagline.

    Hi Aimee,

    I did find one possible solution by editing the CSS. Enable the theme and then go to Appearance > Editor. Inside there search for .site-description. Below is what your file should look like. All I did was change the “font-size” line (I lowered the font size to 22 from 30) and I added a line to make the text italics. I still would like some way to add HTML code in that area as I had a script I was running in the past. This may be possible via CSS but I am not 100% sure.

    .site-description {
    	border-bottom: double #ddd;
    	border-top: double #ddd;
    	font-family: 'Lora', serif;
    	font-size: 30px;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	margin: 40px 0 0;
    	margin: 4rem 0 0;
    	padding: 24px 0;
    	padding: 2.4rem;
    	text-align: center;

    I incorrectly referred to this as a widget. The “Page Title” option was simply a part of the theme in the widgets section. It is found under the Primary and Secondary Sidebar options with the old theme.
