Hi, I’m a total newbie to Genesis , and after putting up a Prose site I thought I was in Heaven.
But now I need to customize more and am getting totally lost.
I am/was a Thesis lover but like a handful of others, not fond of v.2. So enter Genesis.
I need to make the wrapper/content area wider and add Google fonts. I thought I knew where to put the Google code but can’t for the life of me figure out where in Prose/Genesis. Ditto with editing the custom css.
Looks like some good info on Gary Jones site, but a bit outdated – threw me off looking for the custom css because it’s not located where it was in the tutorial.
If there is ANY info on the basics and for the above, I would much much appreciate it if you could guide me there. I looked over the code snippets but didn’t find anything that made sense to me. :/
This is my basic goal for the blog, or as close to it as I can get >

Thanks a lot!!July 14, 2013 at 5:44 pm #50703
Try this new plugin by David Decker. He just released it a week or two ago – Genesis Prose Extras. It’s packed full of a lot of useful things. You’ll love it – http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-prose-extras/.July 14, 2013 at 6:17 pm #50712
Thanks! I downloaded it but wasn’t sure what to do with it when I looked at it.
I’ll give it a whirl.
Thanks again Anita!July 14, 2013 at 6:50 pm #50716
It added a new tab under Genesis. Scroll all the way through and you will see a lot of cool things.July 14, 2013 at 10:25 pm #50736
That may be a handy-dandy plugin, but still doesn’t answer my original question… I would like to make the wrapper/content area wider. I did a search in here but found 1 answer having to do with % and also the sidebar.
I need to read the basics somewhere. Frustrating to be so lost.
Thanks!July 15, 2013 at 9:24 am #50790
To change the width you could add
(or whatever width you like) to your custom.css
Depending on what you are trying to achieve you would also have to modify the css for
/* Line 542 */
/* Line 567 */
/* Line 1046 */
and possibly some other css as well.
A lot of work and experimenting neded to get widths, margins etc right doing it like this.

I messed with the code prior to seeing your reply. In my quest to find out where to change the padding on the left side of the content, I tried a couple of your suggestions, but by that time, I had other custom code in there and things didn’t quite jive together.
I still have NO clue as to where to change that left margin – and I’ve tried tons of things to no avail.
I really appreciate your responses!

Kitty, I see you were able to widen the body. Should I close this now?July 15, 2013 at 9:23 pm #50911
That’s fine Anita, thanks!
