    Thanks Brad but I found a more simple solution that has solved my problem. I just styled the CSS accordingly:

    .sidebar .featured-content .sticky {
    display: none !important;
    }

    I received the answer from the comments section in a post here by Marcy Diaz. Coincidently it’s the same post that I learned how to style this widget for a nicer look to begin with.

    I will mark this as resolved.

    Thanks again!

    Just a bump. Also, my sticky post is on the homepage so I don’t want to make it unsticky to solve the problem.

    Well I updated a post today and it shows the new post date. I went to Webmaster Tools and ran their live data test and it’s still returning the same error message. Suggestions?

    Great info Brad, I missed this one on your site. Question though – is there a way to satisfy the search engines without having the date post every time you update? If for example you decided to modify images, advertising, or small errors on a variety of pages one day, you will have a bundle of posts that will look to the viewer like they were all posted on the same day.

    After following your instructions I substituted the [modified_date] short code in for the [post_date] short code assuming that was the correct thing to do to satisfy the error code from Webmaster Tools. If I leave the [post_date] short code as it was, will it still correct the error?

    Thanks again.

    Hey Brad. I understand from trying to solve this problem that it’s missing the updated date somewhere. The question I have is why and most importantly, how to solve it?

    Is this one of those things that has no effect in terms of SEO and can be ignored or is it a valid error that should be fixed?

    Thanks for your help Summer. Yes, the bottom is asynchronous because it’s in an insert widget. I think you may be on to something about all the midpage ads needing to be changed first to work. I’m going to be doing away with the insert widget and placing some ads manually. I started testing the asynchronous code this way and that’s when I started having issues.

    I think I’ll close this thread out since it has turned into an Adsense issue and not really an issue with Genesis.

    And thank you Brad for spending time on this.

    Hey Summer, thanks for the quick reply. The asynchronous Adsense codes do not work within the content of a page on my site for some reason. The one in the sidebar widget does. I read somewhere that asynchronous code does not work in the content of a responsive site unless you add the first snippet of java script to the head of the page. This is the first snippet in the asynch ad.

    <script async src=”//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js”></script>

    I’ve been at this for a solid day and a half trying to make these work within the content of a page and I’m running in circles now. I may be solidly confused. All I know is that just replacing the async code for the synch code does not work.

    Thanks again!

    Hey Brad. I had found that previously and it’s not quite helping me out. I believe it’s a bit over my head for what I’m trying to do. I might not be explaining myself correctly.

    I’m not trying to run Adsense ads through functions.php. According to this post here, http://www.liberiangeek.net/2013/07/the-best-way-to-add-google-adsense-asynchronous-script-on-your-blog/ this is how to place an asynchronous Adsense ad. All I’m trying to do is use the asynchronous code in place of the synchronous for my current ad placements. It’s the placement of the java script in the head tag that is driving me crazy.

    Thanks Brad, but I don’t want to create a widget in this case. I’ve searched for hours now looking for a way to hook the script into the functions file, but I’m not finding what I need or in many cases do not understand.

    Every post I’ve read about converting to asynchronous Adsense code makes it seem so damn easy, but they all assume that everyone knows how to add the script to the functions file. Argh!!!

    This is what I’m trying to add:

    <script async src=”//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js”></script>

    It’s supposed to be added above the head tag which I’ve read is in the header.php file for WordPress.

    Can you or someone else possibly explain how this is done?

    Thanks again.

    I have now encountered a third issue that caused me to delete this particular CSS for now. The main nav bar does not work correctly in a responsive format. The main nav bar drops down a bit and blocks out a top portion of the page. It’s not a very professional look and can be confusing.

    Anyone have suggestions?

    Thanks for the fast response Sridhar. That does seem to be working, but there are a couple of issues. The first is that the admin bar now interferes with the menu by blocking half the nav bar. The second issue is that the font at the very top is slightly cut off. Suggestions?

    Thanks again!

    Thanks Sridhar, but I can’t just add this without removing part of the CSS that controls how the main nav bar works now can I?

    The above links look the same in all browsers delivering the same font that I see for my site on IE. However, when the Eleven40 theme demo (or my site) is viewed in different browsers, IE is the only browser true to the font (as best as I can tell). It looks vibrant, larger, and has bold color. Fire Fox has good color, but the font gets smaller and changes some. Chrome has the least color boldness and the font seems thin. It gets smaller as well.

    I’m still new to building websites, but this tells me that there is something within the theme itself that is causing this. Am I wrong? Does anyone else see what I see with the theme demo’s when viewed in different browsers? Is this just something you have to accept?
