The folks from StudioPress did great job on designing the Generate Child Theme, I picked it for one of my new projects because that child theme has what I need. But while working on the new site and building the front page, I found out that there is no option to display the optin box “Generate Box” on the “front page“, it only works on the home page, then I discovered a quick solution.
Actually, the solution was posted at StudioPress support forum after that, so I won’t share it here. But what I did was actually putting together a quick solution to display the Generate Box wherever you want on your blog, that’s my new WordPress plugin, the Generate Box.
Once you install the plugin, a new menu item under StudioPress menu:
Clicking on that menu item will take you to the Generate Box plugin settings page.
The Generate Box plugin Options
As you can see from the screenshot above, you can:
- Change the color scheme (the 4 colors has been added)
- Add optin form title, badge image and text
- Embed your email form HTML code
- And, choose where to display the Generate Box!
All this without having to edit your child theme’s code, and you will enjoy your Generate Child Theme even more.
Special thanks to Rafal Tomal, lead designer of Copyblogger Media who designed the Generate Box.
