    Here’s another good site you can use to check load times:

    http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/

    It loaded up quickly for me. If you’ve cleaned up script calls in your site header and done some of the other recommended items from gtmetrix and your site is still sluggish, it may be your web host. If you’re on an inexpensive shared host, speed can be very inconsistent.

    Hi there,
    I only saw the single sidebar layout when I looked just now…

    Your sidebar is set to float:left and your content area is set to float:right, so the two areas are hanging out at polar ends of the screen. That’s not wrong in an of itself, but you’ll need to change the width on your content area OR your sidebar to make them meet in the middle. :)

    Is this for a single page or a bunch of pages?

    Thinking (typing) out loud here… Since the page title occurs inside the loop, you’ll have to add it outside the loop, which you can’t do with a regular hook alone.

    I’m thinking custom query to get the title then add it with a hook.

    Thanks, Mitch!

    Here’s a great site for honing your CSS skills: css-tricks.com. Once your “regular” CSS is solid, then you can dig down into using media queries to get things re-sized properly for different devices.

    One thing that might help is to download the Genesis sample theme and study the CSS. There are some good examples in there. :)

    Hey there,
    Did you get this working? The child theme doesn’t have to “point” to Genesis beta. So long as Genesis beta is installed and your child theme is active, it should work.

    Hi there,

    Here’s one article you might find helpful on DIY social icons (without a plugin):

    http://www.carriedils.com/social-sharing-without-plugins-wp/

    I was just Googling around earlier this week for additional tutorials on adding custom social share icons and there are TONS. Best bet is to find some specific tutorials to walk you through it. :)

    Hi there,
    The link to your site didn’t work. The theme is responsive out-of-the-box (no switch to flip, so to speak), but if you customized the CSS it’s possible you “broke” some of the responsive elements.

    If you look in your CSS file, all the responsive styles are handled under media queries. You’ll need to add responsive support for your customizations.

    Cheers,
    Carrie

    Hey Jason,
    You’ll need to access your site via FTP or your host’s cPanel. Find the wp-content/themes/ folder and delete the Copyblogger theme.

    The idea is to get rid of that and see if you can successfully run the Twenty-Eleven (or Twenty-Twelve) default theme without problems. So, once you’ve deleted the CB theme, try to go back to your WordPress admin and activate the default theme.

    If that works, then good. :) Download a fresh copy of the CB theme and try again. Maybe it got cootie corruption on the original download.

    Hi Nathan,
    Are you referring to the featured image on a post or where is the duplication occurring?

    Generally speaking, the title/alt attributes are good practice for both SEO and screen readers. Not sure I’d remove them unless they just really bug you.

    Hi there,
    Do you have a Google+ account set up? That’s where my Google authorship avatar is coming from, not Gravatar. I’m not 100% sure if that’s the only way to go about it, but I know that way works. :)

    Oh! Okay, we were talking about two different types of titles. The title I was describing is what will show up in browser tab.

    The page title you’re referring to is being pulled from page-title.php. Do you want that area to always show the page title instead of the description? If so, you can change this in your page-title.php:

    Find this:

    [php]

    elseif ( is_singular( ‘page’ ) ) {
    echo ‘<div id="page-title"><div class="wrap"><p>’ . esc_html( get_bloginfo( ‘description’ ) ) . ‘<a class="page-title-button" href="#">’ . __( ‘Subscribe Now’, ‘minimum’ ) . ‘</a></p></div></div>';
    }

    [/php]

    Change to this:

    [php]

    elseif ( is_singular( ‘page’ ) ) {
    echo ‘<div id="page-title"><div class="wrap"><p>’ . esc_html( get_the_title() ) . ‘<a class="page-title-button" href="#">’ . __( ‘Subscribe Now’, ‘minimum’ ) . ‘</a></p></div></div>';
    }

    [/php]

    Note: The only thing I changed in that code was to remove get_bloginfo( ‘description’ ) and replace it with get_the_title()

    Cheers,
    Carrie

    Hi there,

    This sounds like an issue with the forms plugin, not Genesis. I recommend posting directly to the plugin support page here:
