    Ok thank you. I get the text string concept, and that would help change some of the labeling. But let’s say for now if I wanted to add an address field for example, I see some code for this widget at:

    framework/ frontend/ functions/ parts.php

    I just copy/pasted the “phone” line and modified it, as well as in the stylesheet. But I’m seeing no additional field in the widget in Admin. Obviously I’m a bit over my head here, and rushing it, but to add an address field would seem to be a matter of just duplicating one of the fields and modifying – which would then get lost on a future theme update.

    That’s ok I’m just thinking out loud. I’ll figure something else out. Cheers-

    In the theme.css:
    * Theme Styles. This file includes all of the styles you might normally
    * find in style.css. However, they’re here instead so the
    * theme’s styles can be properly enqueued after all of the
    * framework’s styles.
    *
    * Because of this, it’s important that if you’re making CSS
    * edits in a child theme, you need to enqueue your own custom
    * stylesheet after all of the framework’s and the theme’s
    * stylesheets. Simply putting your edits in child theme’s
    * style.css will not override the the default styles you see
    * here because your child theme’s style.css will come before.
    */

    Ok, so how do you “enqueue your own custom stylesheet after all the framework’s and the theme’s stylesheets.”

    I thought adding your own styles and editing the child theme was supposed to be pretty straightforward. Thanks.

    I don’t know what “proving you” means, but I understand your point. I don’t develop themes, so this is just a lot of moving parts. The learning process can be frustrating when people say “oh, you just do this…” and either that doesn’t do anything, or it then introduces five other problems, and everything compounds exponentially. Anyway…

    This is a great theme, thank you for your help, and for providing this forum. Cheers-

    Sorry – I have one other solution which may work if I can’t figure this out, but it still involves a question.

    On “Add New” post editor pages, there is a module called “Post Options.” It is hidden/revealed under “Screen Options” at the top. In this module you can determine if the featured image is a link to a larger version.

    I have a new post type, with the usual supports of:

    (‘title’,’editor’,’author’,’thumbnail’,’excerpt’,’comments’,’custom-fields’)

    What is the “post options” module called? Couldn’t i add it here to access that functionality?

    Thanks for your patience…

    Ok I still have absolutely no idea what to do. Forgive me if we stray from Jumpstart specific topics here. Just tell me what to do here, without skipping anything.

    How do I “register” a crop name or image size? The page in question has about 10 posts with Features Images. I just want to make them a bit larger on this page. Where are “registered crop sizes” defined in the theme?

    I “regenerated thumbnails” for the first image, nothing happened.

    The documentation chapter on “Image Sizes” kind of generally summarizes how things are set up, but that’s about it. There are examples like: “square_smallest”. So for example, do I put that where “size” is in the code? I did that, and regenerated the thumbnail for that one image, and nothing happens.

    I don’t know why this is so difficult to find plain and simple step by step instructions on what to do here. Forgive me… I appreciate your help. Thank you.

    In the first option directly in the code, Is “your_size” a pixel width? I made it “500” just to test and nothing changes, like this:

    <?php themeblvd_the_post_thumbnail( themeblvd_get_att( 'location' ), '500' ); ?>

    Got it. What is the purpose of [raw] if it always interferes with text formatting by default?

    Thank you I will look at all that. Appreciate your help, cheers.

    That did work! Some combination of both corrections have been successful. The custom field value (text) is appearing.

    More generally, if you wanted something to appear at the top of ALL right sidebars, not just for a single post, where would you define that custom field, if not to an individual post?

    Would you have to just add text in the function itself for adding above sidebars?

    Then I’ll let you go, thank you…

    I would think adding a custom field to a random post is not the best way, because it seems the custom field is only “created,” or called for, if/when that particular post is called for.

    Obviously I’m not a WordPress/php expert, I’m just trying to figure out how to create a custom field to place at the top of the sidebar…

    Thank you.

    Hmm… nothing happening. The only result is the styling (I set a background color) is now gone, so it’s just empty space.

    This is both a custom field and a Jumpstart exercise, so is this approach (creating a custom field in a random post and using a function and add_action with the primary action hook location) at least sound?

    Hi,
    I had not activated my license key; but now I have and have updated the theme. Found the new Custom layout module, and it all seems to work again.

    Thank you! I’m so impressed with this product – everything is so professional and well done, the both with support and technical performance.

    Thank so much!

    I am running Layout Builder 1.1.0, and Jumpstart 1.0.0. I was alerted recently to a newer version of Jumpstart but there was no update link, is this a manual process?

    Thank you.
