    This is the last site I own changed over to Genesis. Once again I used Metro Pro as it’s so easy to edit. I added a black leather effect background and as we are Sony Alpha users changes the colour so the famous Sony orange.

    I’m not sure if it’s a little too bright though!

    I’m also looking for an images widget to add photographs into the posts in a mosaic wall effect. If anyone can suggest a simple one to use that works well with Genesis I’d really appreciate it.

    Jetpack includes a mosaic style gallery.

    You could also drag out that module and try using it a separate plugin otherwise someone else may have already done that.

    Thanks Brad. I always assumed Jetpack slowed down sites by numerous posts I’ve read in the past hence never use it?

    Perhaps I shouldn’t be asking here but where do I remove all the underlines in links? looks much cleaner without them.

    Use Firebug to find the CSS code in your style sheet and modify it.

    Sorry Brad I should have written I did that already but instead of giving me the style.css and line it only shows this:

    user agent stylesheet

    Where is this?

    You’ll need to learn Firebug. Not something i can teach you on here as a video is better. You’ll find many on Youtube.

    @nutsandbolts has an article and video showing how to use the item inspector in Chrome. Very similar to using Firebug in Firefox.

    Hi Tom, I use the inspector in Chrome but the problem is I cannot solve where to remove all link underlines as it doesn’t appear to be in the style.css!

    user agent stylesheet !!

    I even scrolled down the style.css but assume it’s not there. I’m sure and hope that from the thousands of members someone has done this ;-) Everything else I have edited is with the Chrome Inspector without problems

    The user-agent stylesheet is your browser’s stylesheet, providing default style definitions, fall-backs that take effect if not defined elsewhere.

    As for removing the underline from all of the links on your site,, this code should work when placed at the bottom of your theme stylesheet.

    a {
        text-decoration: none;
    }

    … however, you might want to reconsider this decision. Google can get away with it because we’ve all been extensively trained and conditioned on how to using Google. Also., many Google pages are simply filled with links – almost everything would be underlined. Your site may not have the same ubiquity so readers appreciate clues on how to access and navigate your content. Carrie Dils has a good WordPress primer in her posts “Website Accessibility and WordPress“.

    Essentially, why discourage readers from accessing your content? Even for a photography site you could have visually impaired readers researching macro images of insects or B&W landscapes.

    The choice is yours; just another data point for you.
