Add Content to the top of the Genesis Blog Page Template

By default, the Genesis Framework Blog Page Template does not allow you to display content added using the WordPress editor. In some cases you may want to add an image or additional information at the top of the page.  To enable this functionality, simply create a file named page_blog.php in your child theme directory, with the following content.

 * Template Name: Blog
 * This file handles blog post listings within a page.
 * @author Jen Baumann
 * @link
 * @package Genesis

add_action('genesis_loop', 'genesis_standard_loop', 8);
