    In your style.css around line 1317 you have:

    .sidebar .widget {
    	background:url(http://tinkerbdesigns.com/TCBOTB/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/sidebar-scroll.png) no-repeat;
    	margin-bottom: 10px;
    	margin-bottom: 0.2rem;
    	padding: 32px;
    	padding: 3.2rem;
    	text-align: center;
    	margin-right:30px;
    }

    If you change this to:

    .sidebar .widget {
        background: url("http://tinkerbdesigns.com/TCBOTB/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/sidebar-scroll.png") no-repeat scroll center bottom rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
        margin-bottom: 0.2rem;
        margin-right: 30px;
        padding: 3.2rem 3.2rem 14rem;
        text-align: center;
    }

    you should get the desired result. Adjust the 14rem in the padding to suit yourself.

    There are probably more elegant solutions but I think this one works.

    If you have access to your site through FTP you could download the malfunctioning functions.php file to your computer so that you can edit it locally.

    Make sure that you added the code correctly. Did you follow the instruction: //* Do NOT include the opening php tag? (<?php)
    If you did include it, remove it, save the file and upload.

    Check to see if your site is restored.

    If not you could find the original functions.php from your Freelance theme and upload it to replace the malfunctioning file.
    This should restore your site to its original state before you made the edits.

    It would be wise to backup your site first.

    Sorry, you can ignore this as I see you have solved the problem.

    Also I see that MaxGalleria has a NextGen Importer. If that works well then it is a ‘must have’

    Also, what I think is worse is that your ‘Home’ button throws a 404 error. It seems to point to http://theinfluenceronline.com/

    You would need to check your menu items and perhaps your permalinks.

    I haven’t used Executive Pro Theme on any site but I see that the padding of home top and home middle on the demo is governed by the following lines in style.css.

    /* Line 1284 */
    .home-middle, .home-top
    {
    background-color: #ffffff;
    clear: both;
    overflow-x: hidden;
    overflow-y: hidden;
    padding-top: 6rem;
    padding-right: 3rem;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
    padding-left: 3rem;
    }

    Have you tried changing the value of padding-top to 2rem or 3 rem?
    I think that should work

    It may be just a question of time. I am seeing a few pages of your site indexed in google already.

    Most of the “1 theme release a week” are simply upgrades of existing themes to Genesis 2/HTML 5. These are not new themes. Most theme and template clubs that I am aware of carry out this type of upgrade as a matter of course as well as developing new themes regularly.
    Since I purchased a Developer License 9 months ago, there have been very few new themes (I think, perhaps two), other than Community Themes which have to be purchased separately.
    I thought when the sales pitch offered “all future themes” as part of the package there would be perhaps one a month or so.
    I shouldn’t make assumptions, should I?

    I am inclined to agree with thedarkmist.
    Although I use Genesis for most websites these days, I find myself turning elsewhere for child themes.
    I have been somewhat disappointed that, since I purchased a developer license about 9 months ago there have been only one or two new themes and one of them was developed for Brian Gardner’s own site, I think.
    I realize that SP have been busy with development of Genesis 2, upgrading to HTML5 etc but we could do with a little freshness…

    in reply to: Spacing after apostrophe #60404

    eamonmoriarty

    Strangely the character which is being inserted is not an apostrophe but the prime symbol (used for number of minutes etc).

    But I wonder should it have bothered you at all? I think the plural of ‘Type 1′ is ‘Type 1s’ (without an apostrophe). I noticed you are putting apostrophes where they are not needed, as in your post above:
    ‘But this is the first time I’ve ever noticed this happening with the apostrophe’s.’ I think this should read:
    ‘But this is the first time I’ve ever noticed this happening with the apostrophes.’

    Pedantic, I know, but I think that is correct.

    This has happened to me on site using Next Gen Gallery.
    If you have that installed it could be the culprit. It is a known issue which you can see in their plugin support.
    There is a workaround which is not very satisfactory.
    Select any piece of text and apply Bold. It will bring back the link button. You can ‘unbold’ again.

    There have been a lot of problems with Next Gen Gallery since WP 3.6 and version 2.0 of their plugin. There are some indications that these problems have been solved since version 2.0.11. I haven’t tried it and I would suggest proceed with caution.

    I have purchased themes at http://www.web-savvy-marketing.com/. They develop good Genesis Child Themes.
    I am somewhat disappointed with the lack of new themes here at Studiopress since I purchased a Developer License about 6 months ago.

    in reply to: custom font not showing up #56787

    The standard web fonts are the fonts which are installed on all computers and will display properly (Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana, Georgia, Comic Sans MS, Trebuchet MS, Arial Black etc.) If the font you specify is not installed on the users computer, it will be replaced bt a serif or sans-serif font.

    Over the past few years some methods have been devised to replace standard fonts with your choice of font but most of these methods have some downsides. Some don’t work properly in some browsers.

    Probably the most reliable method now is the use of Google fonts (which your theme is already using).

    Whichever method you are using to display PepitaScript is not working. Although you see it in Safari, I have checked Safari, IE, Firefox and Seamonkey and it does not display on any of them. I suspect it is displaying for you because you already have the font installed on your computer. Check with other users.

    You have specified PepitaScript as your H2 font. This is not a standard web font or a Google font and will not display. You need to work with standard web fonts or select a Google Font.

    It shows in your header ‘ Allie Chynna’ because that is an image.

    in reply to: SEO and the Genesis 2.0 update #56741

    eamonmoriarty

    I think that it is very unlikely that the update of the theme has anything to do with it.

    Your domain name is quite new with links to it from only one IP address. Google is unlikely to give much weight to these links (if any). It is unlikely that your website would rank highly for any competitive keywords yet.

    Sometimes new websites can get a temporary initial boost in rankings before it settles down in a more natural position. It is possible that the drop you experienced just happened to coincide with the change of theme.

    I don’t know if you have made use of the inbuilt SEO features of Genesis or alternatively the Yoast plugin. Good use of either of these will help your rankings in the long run.

    Just my opinion!
