    Hi Riggie,
    I realize you posted this awhile back. Did you ever get help or did you find a solution?

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    You don’t need to add another loops.php file. You can can create a custom loop or filter the default genesis loop. Here are a couple of starter articles that might get you going in the right direction:

    http://genesissnippets.com/genesis-custom-loop/

    http://surefirewebservices.com/genesis-framework/create-a-custom-loop-without-genesis-hooks

    There are lots of other great articles out there. If you let me know what you’re trying to accomplish with your modified loop and where/what pages you want it to show, I can give you more specific info.

    Cheers,
    Carrie

    Hi Joachim,

    There is not a simple way (that I’m aware of) to have a featured image brought in externally.

    You my find this plugin helpful for a default featured image for a post or product that doesn’t have an image:

    Hi there,

    If you add this, it’ll center all the more buttons:

    .more-link {
    margin: 0 auto;
    }

    Since you only want to center the one, you’ll want to target that element specifically. See if this works:

    .featuredpost .more-link {
    margin: 0 auto;
    }

    Cheers,
    Carrie

    Hey there,
    I checked in Safari (vs 6) and it looks fine. Also looks normal in Firefox, too. I saw you’ve got a min-height set on the header, so it looks like you’re doing the right thing.

    The only other thing I could think of to try is adding display: block to your #header tag.

    Cheers,
    Carrie

    I’m not seeing that in any of my browsers, not even Safari. Looking at your source code, I don’t see anything there either – there’s actually a bit of javascript that seems oddly placed.

    Are you using any caching plugins?

    What form/plugin are you using to create your feedback form. Maybe a conflict somewhere….

    Is that photo in a widget area? If so uncheck the “Automatically add paragraphs” from the widget. That’ll remove the
    tag around that photo and the margin style that goes with it. :)

    Just the post body text for *that* post or every post?

    If it’s just that post, you can add a post class and target that via CSS.

    If it’s for every post, target the single-post class, for instance:

    .single-post p {
    color: #000;
    font-size: 18px;
    }

    (If you look at the tag on your post pages, you’ll see that it automatically gets a class=”single-post”)

    Cheers,
    Carrie

    Is it the red button in the sidebar that says “Leave a Review”? That’s the only button I’m seeing on the page (shows up in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari on my Mac).

    Could be quote left out or a tag left unclosed as the culprit, if it’s not showing consistently.

    Add background-color: #000000 (or whatever) to #header.

    Also remove the width: 1140px.

    Beautiful! I love using the photo “circles” where the social media icons were in the original theme.

    Are you planning to add blog content to show up on the front page? If not, you can get rid of it (*I think*) by removing or commenting out this from home.php ->

    remove_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘genesis_do_loop’ );

    Cheers,

    Hi,
    I would strongly advise against using Flash, especially if you want your site to still be mobile-device friendly.

    Just my two cents. :)

    Not sure if I’m understanding correctly, but are you saying you want them the same or the active and the hover to be different?

    You’ll want to use #nav li a:hover to target your hover state and #nav li a:active for the active.

    Cheers,

    Hey there,
    Doesn’t sound like your customizations would be causing it. I’d try disabling all of your plugins and see if that fixes it. If so, re-activate the plugins one at a time so you can catch the culprit.

    What about using breadcrumbs instead of the drop-down widget? It’ll provide the link structure that would help users navigate. You can turn that on at Genesis > Theme Settings.
