Move Titles Around in Genesis


From time to time, we like pulling titles out of the normal flow of the page and put them somewhere else. Like above the content-sidebar div (or whatever div holds the page content). This causes problems, though; a customized homepage layout ends up with an unwanted title, category and archive pages display the first post title instead of the category title…etc. So with a fair amount of wailing and gnashing of teeth, and Joe’s skills at sleuthing, we came up with this solution:

stuff we dig

    Hello Dave, This article for working on modifying titles in Genesis got my attention because I am currently trying to achieve the same thing. It is similar to a solution I came up with but not quite the result I want as I am having a issue with displaying the Page title on the archive page of the blog.

    Do you have a link to the site where this solution was applied. I would love to see it. I think it will help me find my solution.

    Thank You,

    Hi Landru, wish I could link you to that site. They had a new site built a few months ago and went with a different group, since I moved away from that area a while back.
