    For some reason I never saw the email notifications about your responses, so I am just seeing them now. I really appreciate all of the thoughts. I did end up sending her the original proposal and a timeline of changes that were requested, beyond the scope requests, etc. I told her that I would not charge them for the hour spent on the phone that day but reiterated my hourly maintenance fee for future work/meetings, telling her I would very much like to continue working on the website but that I hoped she could understand that I cannot do so for free.

    And then I never heard back…so I guess that wasn’t the response she wanted to see. It still bothers me since she is a local business very visible in the community, but I know that I more than delivered what was promised so I’m working on getting over the fact that she is just going to be dissatisfied no matter what.

    Changing the float does not impact half of the posts rendering outside of the content-sidebar-wrap. This is a custom post type archive and it seems to be ignoring some of my settings on the archive page, which may be associated to this issue?

    This is what I have in archive-member.php

    <?php
    /**
     * This file adds the custom member post type archive template to the MOBA Theme.
     *
     * @author Au Coeur Design
     */
    
    /*
    Template Name: Member Archive
    */
    
    //* Force full-width-content layout setting
    add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', '__genesis_return_full_width_content' );
    
    //* Remove the breadcrumb navigation
    remove_action( 'genesis_before_loop', 'genesis_do_breadcrumbs' );
    
    //* Remove the post info function
    remove_action( 'genesis_entry_header', 'genesis_post_info', 5 );
    
    //* Remove the post content
    remove_action( 'genesis_entry_content', 'genesis_do_post_content' );
    
    //* Remove the post image
    remove_action( 'genesis_entry_content', 'genesis_do_post_image', 8 );
    
    //* Add member body class to the head
    add_filter( 'body_class', 'executive_add_member_body_class' );
    function executive_add_member_body_class( $classes ) {
       $classes[] = 'executive-pro-member';
       return $classes;
    }
    
    //* Add the featured image after post title
    add_action( 'genesis_entry_header', 'executive_member_grid' );
    function executive_member_grid() {
    
        if ( $image = genesis_get_image( 'format=url&size=portfolio' ) ) {
            printf( '<div class="portfolio-featured-image"><a href="%s" rel="bookmark"><img src="%s" alt="%s" /></a></div>', get_permalink(), $image, the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) );
    	echo strip_tags(the_excerpt($post- id));
    
        }
    
    }
    
    //* Remove the post meta function
    remove_action( 'genesis_entry_footer', 'genesis_post_meta' );
    
    genesis();

    For some reason, it is ignoring the forced full-width command. I actually hid the sidebar with CSS. That is probably why you see the float.

    Any other ideas?

    Hi Susan,

    I am working on this now. The problem I seem to have is related to the current category generation. I am trying to use this code:

    //* Add List Above Category Archives
    function post_list_on_category_archive() {
    if ( is_category() ) {
        	echo '<div class="before-category">';
    	echo do_shortcode( '[display-posts posts_per_page="-1" order="ASC" orderby="title" columns="2" category="$category_id"]' );
    	$category_id = get_query_var( 'cat' );
    	echo '</div>';
    }
    
    };
    
    add_action('genesis_before_content', 'post_list_on_category_archive');

    If I remove “category=…” the short code will display as expected. But for some reason adding in category=”$category_id” returns nothing where the shortcode should be.

    Thoughts?

    I just did this for a client. If you add a file called page_blog.php in your child theme folder and then add this code:

    <?php
    /**
     *
     * Template Name: Blog
     * This file modifies the blog template.
     *
     * @author Au Coeur Design
     * @link http://www.aucoeurdesign.com
     * @package Genesis
     */
     
    add_action('genesis_loop', 'genesis_standard_loop', 8);
     
    genesis();

    The title and any content you have on that page will appear before the loop.

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

    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.
