    If you want to keep the changes he made then you need to know what files he altered.

    If he didn’t understand genesis or child themes, and simply copied all the genesis files and altered those then he may well have altered a lot more files than was actually necessary for a child theme.  That may, or may not, cause a problem, depending on what he has done.

    The genesis theme needs to be in your theme folder, but NOT activated.  It is the child theme that is activated.  To produce a child theme you generally start off with the sample genesis child theme and build it from there.  You can of course name the child theme to anything you want, apart from genesis. If your activated theme was built in that way then you have no need to do anything as it will be using the main genesis framework and NOT operating stand-alone.

    That you are being asked to upgrade Genesis is proof that it is working correctly.

    Regarding upgrading, it sounds as though for some reason the upgrade didn’t finish.  Try again, depending upon where you clicked to upgrade there may be a a screen appear saying “click here to finish” – so just make sure you click there :)

    I don’t think it would be an issue either way.  Whatever you decide, it won’t effect any search capability. You’re not actually removing the dates but you can hide them.

    Personally, I prefer to always hide dates anyway.

    Or, if it’s a WordPress page that you want as your home-page then go to Settings > Reading, check the Static Page and then select the page you want for the front page.

    Thanks Susan.

    It is only two of the boxes – Post/Page and Include/Exclude post ID#

    Messing about again with it I managed to get it working by clicking and HOLDING then dragging down to include before releasing mouse hold.

    I’ll post this on the WP forum for the others, but it would be good if Nick does have a spare minute (;)) to fix

    This plugin would be exactly what I want, but unfortunately it’s not working.  The drop down selection boxes in the widget can’t be selected and it seems from the WP forum that a number of people have been having this problem for 3 weeks or more.  It seems that Nick is not around to help at the moment :(

    Put in a ticket.   I found that they had given me two accounts by accident.  Opening a ticket they were able to advise me this and I was able to log into the correct account. Whilst it probably isn’t the same problem with you I would imagine it is something easily rectifable to the team.

    Just found this older thread.

    What I find interesting is when viewing a Genesis responsive theme at  http://www.studiopress.com/responsive/ through FireFox the site entered does NOT display correctly and I must use Chrome browser.

    However, viewing http://twentytwelvedemo.wordpress.com on the SP responsive test page it shows correctly even in FireFox.

    I realise that this post is reasonable old now and you have probably solved the issue, but I would like to point out that I have just found out that scripts, such as the one at http://www.responsinator.com, will only display correctly if you are using Chrome browser.

    Found this out myself after trying to “fix” my sites!!!

    So take another look using Chrome.

    I’m not on twitter (hate it but don’t have time anyway) and don’t come on this new forum much so must be fate that I just happened to come on here this morning!!

    Sounds great and I’ll be watching with interest!

    oh, just to show you how bad I am with changes; I arrived directly at this page from an email, it then took me about 5 minutes to find out that I have to go to the forum’s home page in order to log-in!  LOL!

    Hey Ronny, glad to hear I’m not the only one that’s been struggling (phew!)   I’m not against changes that are necessary in order to move forward, I just don’t feel that reordering the .css was absolutely necessary.

    Unfortunately, due to my disabilities, changes are NOT welcome for me and major changes is more than an uphill struggle.

    I have still not got my head around how to change the way I work due to these changes, and not sure that I will be able to :(

    Thanks John.

    Can I ask you how you tend to work then?   Do you just decide to work on, say, all the font sizes first instead of working on each div at a time; so in other words, simply work through the style sheet?

    I did honestly try to work with it yesterday, but admit to falling back to an old style sheet.  However, I do like to try and keep up with the latest things.  It’s just that as far as I can see it means changing the way I work, which is VERY difficult for me due to my disability.

    I’m redoing my site at the mo so it’s a good time to consider trying to change!

    Thank you!    I am still struggling to find my way around the new setup!
