  1. I was hoping for a photo of the newly coded site, to see if this is the item I’m looking to use on my site,

  2. Bro I wanna ask you a question that how can we remove header from Genesis eleven40 theme like techylist dot com

    • Didn’t understand what exactly you want to remove, however, I think you want to remove the Site description which appears just after the HEader of the Eleven40 Pro theme. If yes, then add this in the function file of your theme.


  3. I have tried this method but featured image too big I need to display only 150*150. please help

    • Reduce this numbers until you achieved your desired size

      ‘feature_image_size’ => 100,
