    In the Minimum theme, I was wanting to know if the circles for the social media links can be turned into squares with links within the site?

    Hi Suzan
    On the Studiopress Minimum 2 demo site this is the CSS for the social media icons:

    #home-featured a.icon-facebook, #home-featured a.icon-facebook:hover, #home-featured a.icon-google, #home-featured a.icon-google:hover, #home-featured a.icon-pinterest, #home-featured a.icon-pinterest:hover, #home-featured a.icon-twitter, #home-featured a.icon-twitter:hover {
    -moz-border-radius: 50%;
    -webkit-border-radius: 50px;
    background: #ddd url(images/icons.png);
    border-radius: 50%;
    display: block;
    height: 140px;
    margin: 0 auto 30px;
    padding: 0;
    text-indent: -9999px;
    width: 140px;
    }

    The part that forms the circle is…
    border-radius: 50%;

    Play around with the percentage value to get the effect you want.

    Thanks, I haven’t bought the theme yet because I am trying to work out if it will be right for me. I want to have 8 photos (2 rows of 4) to show my published book covers on the front page. Do you know if that is possible?

    Everything is possible with Genesis depending on your coding knowledge.

    To show that it is possibe, this is my Minimum 2 site

    Minimum 2 default homepage is a blog style homepage.
    I customised my homepage to get the two rows that I wanted.

    I have two rows of 3, you would require two rows of 4.

    Nice site. That’s what I want but the photos would be portrait shape like book covers. My coding is not good but at least now I know I can do it and I could ask later when I have the theme. I have looked through all the themes and it seems like it would make the best author’s website. Have you seen any of the other themes used for this?

    No I haven’t.
    Head over to twitter and ask the gensis community about sites displaying author’s work.

    Ask under #genesiswp

    The community will know what’s available.

    Thank you. I have never used the Genesis community on Twitter. I already have the Pretty Pictures theme for my food blog and I love that but it wouldn’t work for my author’s site. I will try them. Thanks again.
