  • Conditionally display Genesis Social Share, e.g. not on a specific category

    The Genesis Social Share plugin is one of the must have plugins for Genesis sites. See https://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-simple-share/ I wanted to display these icons (just like the ones on this post) except on posts in a specific category.  I had to read the plugin code to work this out.

    Often it is prudent to force a page layout, especially the home page. Within Genesis, the guidance is fairly scant   <?php //* Do NOT include the opening php tag //* Force content-sidebar layout setting add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout’, ‘__genesis_return_content_sidebar’ ); //* Force sidebar-content layout setting add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout’, ‘__genesis_return_sidebar_content’ ); //* Force content-sidebar-sidebar layout setting add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout’, […]
