    Yes, I know. That’s what I’m trying to find out how to do.

    No plugin. The one you suggested had no effect.

    The only php affecting blog output presently is this:

    /** Full Content For Features */
    function be_full_content_for_features( $option ) {
    if( in_array( ‘feature’, get_post_class() ) )
    $option = ‘full';

    return $option;
    }
    add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_content_archive’, ‘be_full_content_for_features’ );

    Thanks for the reply Dorian.

    Here is the mess I have so far. I did have the excerpts (teasers) limited at one point, but now (I don’t know why) they seem to have expanded to full content. I’ve been having weird problems with the custom.php reverting to older versions.

    This, I believe, is the only code I have now that modifies output on blog page:

    /** Full Content For Features */
    function be_full_content_for_features( $option ) {
    if( in_array( ‘feature’, get_post_class() ) )
    $option = ‘full';

    return $option;
    }
    add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_content_archive’, ‘be_full_content_for_features’ );

    In full, I’m trying to replicate the look of my existing blog. That would include having category and tag archives return as title, author, date, and number of comments only. I’m a very eager potential convert but, after more than a month struggling with this getting close to throwing in the towel.

    That didn’t work. Perhaps the php I’m using to have two full posts and 4 excerpts (incl “read the full article”) on blog is interfering with the plugin. I’ve been going round in circles on this for over a month.

    In full. what I want is:

    Two full posts on the blog homepage + 4 excerpts
    Just titles, date, and number of comments on category and tag archives
    styled excerpts, i.e. smaller font.

    In other words, what my site has presently. Hoping for a non-plugin solution.

    Thanks for the reply, Brad. This is how my category pages presently look on my live site. I’d like to replicate that. This is how they are on my test site, i.e. same layout as blog page.

    OK. I got discouraged and put this project on the back burner, but I really need to move my site to something new, so here goes again.

    First, thanks to those who have spent the time to try to help.

    I want to replicate this page, which pulls in the custom page type “garage” with own taxonomy. Presently, it used this code in the Thesis custom.php (and, of course references the Thesis custom loop):

    //display latest teasers on garage page
    class garage_page extends thesis_custom_loop {
    function page() {
    //display normal page if not paged
    if(!is_paged()) {
    thesis_loop::page();
    }
    global $wp_query;
    //prepare & run new query (no saving needed so it will respond on post_type_archive() conditional and
     enable pagination)
    $paged = ($wp_query->query_vars['paged'] != 0 ) ? $wp_query->query_vars['paged'] : 1 ;
    $args = array(
    'post_type' => 'garage',
    'posts_per_page' => '14',
    'paged' => $paged
    );
    $garage = query_posts($args);
    //display posts
    global $thesis_design;
    $thesis_design->display['archives']['style'] = 'teasers';
    $thesis_design->home['body']['content']['features'] = 0;
    thesis_loop::home();
    }
    }
    //check if the garage display needed
    function custom_check_garage_page() {
    //you need to modify the parameter in the next line to make it work
    if(is_page('garage')) {
    $garage_page = new garage_page();
    }
    }
    add_action('wp_head','custom_check_garage_page');
    //end garage page

    I’d really, really like to move to Genesis. I’ve got everything else on my test site to the point I can live with until I learn more. This barrier is pretty much the only thing holding me back now.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the replies (though I’m a bit foggy on the answers). I just realized I need to maintain my custom post types and taxonomy, so need to pull those into the page.

    It took me months to figure out how to do this in the present theme (Thesis) … hope it’s not going to take as long to figure out the PHP to use in Genesis.

    Sorry to butt in, but I’ve certainly not received any kind of response in over a week (other than one aside from Susan, welcoming me to the forum.)

    Not too impressed with this “help” forum. Anyone want to help me explore Genesis further?

    Hi Susan; thanks for your attention.

    As I mentioned in my post in the Design Tips & Tricks thread, I’ve figured out how to register my custom taxonomy/post type (it was a setting in the child theme), but I’m hoping to get help with the next step, which I suspect has something to do with something called the “Genesis grid.”

    I’d appreciate any help understanding this unfamiliar territory.

    Happy 2013! Waited ’til midnight, toasted the TV party, then went back to trying to figure out how to accomplish my New Years resolution: switch my site over to Genesis. Didn’t get far with that, so went to bed around 1am.

    Went for a bike ride with a friend today to clear my head, but ruined that by hitting the computer when I got home.

    Maybe I should quit making resolutions. :)

    I’m new to this Genesis stuff, but one of the first things I used was the “customize the Credits” code Susan linked to above (is there a way to post PHP on this forum?). I noticed today it updated the year, so I guess it works :)

    Hello? I figured out how to enable my taxonomy and custom post types.

    What I’m trying to do is replicate the look of the page linked in my post above. I have gathered there’s something called the “Genesis grid.” Might that be what I’m looking for? I tried one code snippet I found online, but it broke my test site.

    I’d appreciate any help, directions anyone might be able to offer.

    Happy New Year!
