    Do you want to add a logo in lieu of the site title and description?

    My preference based on weddings, anniverseries would be the Manhattan theme which is light and cheery. The Landscape theme is too dark for life. My 2 cents.

    mattspaeth,

    You are a little ahead of the game. add_theme_support(); will be valid with Genesis 2.0; whenever that is released. For now drop that and use:

    /** Add Viewport meta tag for mobile browsers */
    add_action( 'genesis_meta', 'custom_viewport_meta_tag' );
    function custom_viewport_meta_tag() {
    echo '';
    }

    You should see it in your header. I had trouble finding it myself.

    Thanks…I will look into S2member. I just need a simple registration system with private messaging. Buddypress seems like overkill for this application.

    in reply to: Image overlay for Genesis Responsive Slider #11626

    It seems to me you will have to create a home.php file for your ‘child’ theme and hard code the slider ( .flexslider ) into it. Inside that ‘class’ you will put your ‘div’ for your image. They will be positioned in the CSS using the ‘relative’ (slider) and ‘absolute’ (image) declarations. Go here to see how an overlay is done. Use Firebug to see how the ‘selectors’ are used.

    in reply to: How to disable secondary menu on blog page? #8369

    You might try using a conditional statement. Since your blog is your front page you can put the following in the functions,php file,


    function kr_remove subnav () {
    if ( is_home() ) {
    // Removes sub nav after the header
    remove_action('genesis_after_header', 'genesis_do_subnav');
    }
    }

    in reply to: Removing image border for only one home page featured widget #7955

    It looks like the background color #83B000 is causing the problem, due to  ‘padding:4px;’. Try deleting the padding or changing/eliminating the color all together. You need to create a new style specially adding the actual post div, ‘featured-post-2′ to your css.

    Also are you using Firefox with Firebug? It can help find these things.

    I have never used the plugin, but you need to use a conditional statement.

    if ( is_home() ) {

    Your banner code here

    }

    1) This assumes you have not set the ‘static page’ setting .. ie  you are using your blog as your home page.

    For info on Conditional Tags

    You need to change the float:left to float:none or delete it.

    Go to the Resources tab above and you will find it under Web Tools. For WooCommerce you will need to use Firebug to find the things to change…ie fonts etc.

    in reply to: Which server to develop on? #3592

    Doak Heggeness

    einstein,

    I was going to mention to setup a subdomain on the domain you want to develop…’subdomain.domain.com’.

    1) That way you will develop their website based on the server’s specs.

    2) Also your your database is already on the server and it is easier to move your content over.

    3) Regarding indexing….when you install WordPress check the box at the bottom of the page not to index.

    So I think you created a  Blog page.? If so try changing the ‘template’ to ‘default’ if it is set to the ‘blog’ template.

     

    ps: If you are not going to use the home.php file, change it to home.txt or delete it and your blog will be the home page by default. You will need to reset the ‘Reading’s tab back to ‘Latest Post’.

    I would just go into your cPanel and access your functions.php file and delete the code you just put in. In the future I would do as Susan suggests.

    In the header there are two you need to deal with:

    You need to modify…

    #title-area {
    float: left;
    min-height: 100px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 15px 0 0;
    width: 350px;
    }

    This is where your Title/Logo is located. Try adding width:0px; &/or display:none;

    You also need to modify…

    #header .widget-area {
    float: right;
    padding: 40px 0 0;
    width: 600px;
    }
    

    This is where your menu is located.

    You can change to float:left; &/or increase width: if necessary and see it moves it over enough
    This is where your menu is located.

    I hope this points you in the right direction.
