First off… I love this theme. I’ve been searching for a good theme for a while and finally found GeneratePress. I appreciate all that you have done.
I have everything up and running as expected. My homepage is set to display “Your latest posts”. This is working wonderfully. The thing I can’t get to work is that on my homepage I want to add a little promo section right above the posts and below the menu bar. Much like what you have on http://www.generatepress.com above the “The Perfect Starting Theme For WordPress” text. I’ve been trying all sorts of things for hours and I cannot figure it out. Can you please point me in the right direction?
Thanks a lot!September 9, 2014 at 8:55 pm #26944TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I used the Page Header addon to add that content below my header.
Let me know if you need any help setting it up 🙂September 10, 2014 at 4:49 am #27160Robert
Thanks… I will check it out. On a related question. If I buy the add-on now for $5 and later I decide I want to buy the “Super Package”, does that $5 count toward the $20 “Super Package”?September 10, 2014 at 8:44 am #27206TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
The Super Package counts towards GP Premium – but the individual addons don’t count towards either.
Let me know if you have any questions 🙂September 10, 2014 at 5:01 pm #27355Dee Broughton
I may have something like what you are talking about above my posts. http://www.elt.international
My “tagline” is just a line displayed with the Before Header hook. On this particular site, the header and tagline are hidden.September 11, 2014 at 6:31 pm #28102Robert
Okay, I’ve bought the Page Header addon and activated it, but I can’t figure out how to get it on my home page. I can see how to add it to a regular post and page… but I can’t figure out the home page. I think I just don’t know where to look. Can you point me in the right direction?September 11, 2014 at 6:45 pm #28104TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Is your homepage a blog?
If so, the Page Header addon won’t work on the blog page itself.
However, I can help you add it to the blog if you have the GP Hooks addon.
Let me know 🙂September 11, 2014 at 7:02 pm #28115Robert
Yes, my homepage is a blog. I think I’ll pass on buying another plugin at this time. Can you just deactivate it and issue me a refund?

Cool. If you put me on your email list… when the blog post header addon is ready let me know. If I’m still using your theme I will be your first buyer for the addon.

I am also interested in adding a slider image above the Blog Homepage. I am using meta slider with shortcodes, I assume I create a PHP container in GP hooks with the shortcode in it? Thanks!September 12, 2014 at 11:37 am #28505TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
That’s correct, you would do this in the “After Header” hook.
<?php if ( is_home() ) : ?> <div class="grid-container grid-parent"> YOUR SHORTCODE IN HERE </div> <?php endif; ?>
Then make sure “Execute PHP” is checked.
Let me know if you need more guidance 🙂September 12, 2014 at 12:22 pm #28533Eric
You rock! Thank you sir!September 12, 2014 at 1:31 pm #28570
