    We are loving Generate Press so far & have all the Add-Ons installed & activated.

    Our site (beta URL is http://neostc.org/cmswp/) has a static Home page, and we are using the blog for the group’s newsletter.

    On the blog page, we want to add a newsletter title BELOW the page header and (always) ABOVE the first post.

    I don’t see a way to do this with GP Hooks.

    Would this require a child theme? – If so, I’d appreciate some advice as it’s the first time I’ll be creating/using a child theme. In the generic WP support forums, I found this thread:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/adding-page-title-to-blog-page-twenty-ten-theme
    … but since it’s for a different theme, I didn’t want to try that method without asking.

    Thanks for the great support we’ve had already with Generate Press! Great theme – makes everything so easy & flexible!

    You could try doing something like this in the “Above Content” hook:

    <?php if ( is_home() ) : ?>
          <header class="entry-header">
                <h1 itemprop="headline" class="entry-title">Blog</h1>
          </header>
    <?php endif; ?>

    is_home is only true while on the blog.

    Then, you’ll have to check the “Execute PHP” checkbox.

    Let me know if that does it 🙂

    Thanks Tom! I see from the code that it should only affect the Blog page, which is exactly what we need.
    I meet with my newsletter editors tomorrow night – how cool if this can be in place by then to show them!
    I’ll try it this evening & let you know how it goes.
    Thanks again!

    Well, the initial solution did not work. Instead of a page title at the top, it puts the text (“Blog” in your sample code) above the title of each individual blog Post.

    So then I tried putting your code snippet into the “After Header” hook.

    That actually did work!! – except that the text is aligned in the far left margin.

    So now I just need to find a way to center it on the page – that would be the perfect position.

    If this were a non-WP site, I could probably figure out how to do it, and I’m guessing it’s something to do with the .aligncenter class (is that the correct jargon?), but I don’t know where to insert it in your sample code for the hook.

    ** I know you’re probably busy with the WP 4.0 update. We hope to go live on 9/10, so if you can help in the next few days, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help!

    Ah – my mistake.

    Okay, try this:

    <?php if ( is_home() ) : ?>
          <div class="grid-container grid-parent">
               <header class="entry-header">
                      <h1 itemprop="headline" class="entry-title">Blog</h1>
                </header>
          </div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    That is perfect, except I’d really like it center-aligned.

    How do I do that?

    (P.S. – I even added an H2 sub-title and it worked great!)

    Never mind – I think I got it! I added

    align=”center”

    right after

    div class=”grid-container grid-parent”

    and now both my title & sub-title are center-aligned.

    This is so sweet! Kudos to you Tom for a great theme!

    Good job!

    Using align=”center” is kind of old when it comes to coding, so I suggest doing this to the opening div:

    <div class="grid-container grid-parent" style="text-align:center;">

    Hi Tom,
    i used your suggestion in order to show my blog title in the blog homepage, putting it “inside_container”, but this made title shown before Yoast breadcrumbs, while in every other pages of the site page title appears after breadcrumbs 🙁
    Can you tell me how to fix this difference?
    Thank you in advance!
