    …I also never spent a lot of time trying to figure it out with Bill’s plugin.

    Nope, never got it resolved.

    Have you read through the WooCommerce documentation or posted in the support forums over there? You are starting to drift away from Genesis issues…

    Add that to the div I mentioned :-)

    If you want it to be white, use #fff;

    @Gordy, Sorry I didn’t see your question before. Dancey Pants Disco uses Genesis Connect, Hydrex does not. The main thing that I have noticed the plugin doing is enabling the use of simple sidebars.

    @megaking22, executive pro is not a plugin, it is a theme. If you want to use Genesis, then you need to use a genesis child theme.

    Just add a background to .content-sidebar-wrap in your CSS file.

    Yes, you are correct that it would require ongoing CSS changes. Another thing you could do is add a background to the content sidebar wrap. This would make them appear to be the same height because they would be in the same visible container. This would remove the visible site background that currently appears between them though, so you have to decide if that is something you want to do stylistically.

    Did you find the section I reference in your CSS file? That is what is controlling your text color change on hover.

    This explains minimum height: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_dim_min-height.asp

    As long as your sidebar is the same on every page, you can add the min-height to .entry in your css file and it will make it the same height as your sidebar.

    Making the sidebar longer on pages with longer content is trickier because you have to do each page individually. You would add the appropriate height to each page’s sidebar and also add the white background to the sidebar.

    So on the process page, for example, it would look something like this:

    .page-id-146 .sidebar {
    color: #999;
    height: 1338px;
    background-color: #FFF;
    }

    You probably want to round the corners to match.

    You can add a minimum height on a case by case basis to whichever one is shorter. How familiar are you with CSS?

    For the future, please create a separate post for each of your questions.

    Here are some answers:

    1. Try making the height bigger in your slider settings or remove your content or make the excerpt area wider. The title is getting cut off because you have too many things to display in that space. You can adjust your image settings to see if a different image size would display your image better. The best way I have found to control how images are cropped and appear in the slider is to set the slider to display full-size images and then to crop my images to the exact dimensions needed before uploading them.

    2. The Genesis Responsive Slider is not set up to run multiple different sliders on a site. I found this hack tutorial, but I never could get it to work. http://www.wp-code.com/wordpress-snippets/different-genesis-reponsive-sliders/ I ended up just using a different slider on sites that need multiple sliders, in which case I use either SlideDeck or Portfolio Slideshow (the Pro versions) depending upon the needs for the sliders.

    3. The easiest way for a “novice” to put a photo to the left and move the location of the Site title and description is to create an image that looks like what you want the header to look like (containing the photo and text) and upload it as a full-width header.

    4. I would just go through all of the theme demos and find one that looks closest to what you want. You could try the sample child theme, possibly.

    5. ALWAYS, ALWAYS make changes in a child theme. If you make changes to the genesis framework, you will lose your changes every time you update Genesis.
