It sounds like either your sidebar isn't registered properly, and/or you haven't placed anything in it in the Widgets area (some themes suppress the sidebar when it's empty; not sure if the default Genesis theme does that or not).May 9, 2014 at 9:51 am in reply to: Corporate & News (non-genesis) not registering changes made.

If the host is using cacheing then you will need to contact them about it. Their website may give you info on it or send in a ticket to their support system for help.
However maybe it's something else? I have no idea how a pre-Genesis site like that is constructed but my guess based on your description is that these phone numbers might be hard-coded into more than one page. There are different phone numbers showing on your home page as on the About page. In Genesis, stuff in the sidebar would be set up using the Appearance -> Widgets screen but it sounds like that's not the case for you. Did you check there as a possibility? The other thing to look at is if there is a home.php or other PHP pages that have the phone numbers in them.
It may just be coincidence that the changes you're making on these two sites aren't showing up; the cause of each could be quite different. The main common cause would be caching, otherwise these could need to be investigated separately.May 8, 2014 at 5:48 pm in reply to: Ninja Affiliate Plugin Missing After WordPress 3.9? #104219
There have been lots of changes to the WP editor in recent updates and many plugin developers have not caught up with them yet. You will likely have better luck seeking help for your issue on the developer's support forums.
Your English is good!
You might want to look into David Decker's Widgetized Archive Pages plugins for Genesis to help you set the category archives up:
If that doesn't do what you need, then please come back and I can try suggesting other things for what you want.
Turn Key is a third-party product so you will likely have better luck posting any problems over in that developer's forums:
Not sure if you still have a question or not? If so could you please state it again, and also post a link to your site where you're trying to implement it.
For easy changes to layout/look-and-feel of archives, you can try David Decker's Widgetized Archives Page plugin:May 8, 2014 at 5:07 pm in reply to: Corporate & News (non-genesis) not registering changes made. Help appreciated! #104210
Kinda confused when you say that they don't use Genesis. Corporate and News are Genesis themes. What exactly do you mean by that?
Also it would be helpful to get links to the respective sites in order to see what you're seeing.
The first thing that I'd suspect with behavior like this is caching. Do you use caching plugins on these sites and/or does your host?
Is the image in your favicon a black silhouette on a yellowish background? Because I'm seeing it show up in both Firefox and Chrome.
Apparently there's something wrong with the image you uploaded or your server configuration; I get a 500 Internal Server Error when I try to view http://partsmasterbrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/header.jpg. Try deleting the file and uploading the image again as your Featured Image for that page.May 5, 2014 at 8:56 am in reply to: How to make a page like this? Help a blogging newbie? :) #103697
Learning WordPress terminology can be confusing, and trying to figure out Genesis at the same time is even more complicated - so just be prepared for some frustration along the way. The wordpress.org site is a great resource; their codex is useful when you get stuck on specific backend things, and they cover the basics really well. If you haven't already, then you could start here to get up to speed on the terminology:
Figuring out the difference between WP Posts and WP Pages - and understanding that not every "page" on your website is a WP Page - is very important, because they behave differently and are used for different things. As just one example, when you set up your menu, the menu items are (usually) the Pages on your site - so that means you need to figure out how you want your site to be structured first, and then create the Pages, at least empty ones with no content, in order for them to appear in the Menus screen to become menu items. But generally you would never make a Post a menu item.
Admittedly, that paragraph might not make a lot of sense to someone just starting out...!!
Anyway, keep going with it and it'll click into place for you, and if you get stuck then you can always come back here (or wordpress.org forums) to get some guidance.
Hey there - it's possible that you're hitting up against standard behavior in WP that often causes confusion. This post might help:
(The part about the Genesis theme specifically.)
I wasn't able to tell which part of your site you're having the problem with. Are you talking about the WP Posts (like the mega-crete thing)? Or WP Pages? If you're still stuck please link to the actual URL you are referencing since I couldn't quite follow you from your description.May 3, 2014 at 8:43 pm in reply to: How to make a page like this? Help a blogging newbie? :) #103537
Looks like you've made some good progress!
Did you want the Featured Pages to do something different from how you have them set up now?
For the Latest from the Blog part, you'll probably need to modify one of the theme files. Swank is a third-party theme and I don't have access to it so I can't guide you on what needs to change and where. Or if you're feeling brave, Brad does have a bunch of tutorials - here's one that might be what you want: http://wpsites.net/web-design/using-the-genesis-grid-loop-for-different-home-post-layouts/
Just some cautions though: If you have a typo when editing files like functions.php, you will bring down your entire site! Before you begin, be sure that you know how to log onto your server using FTP, and create a backup of the functions.php (or any PHP file that you're changing) so that you can restore it on the server if you need to.
When copying in code from a tutorial, use the "raw" link (or pastebin) if available, and don't copy in the opening php tag of any snippet.
The Genesis for Beginners guide is useful, if you haven't read it yet; it is available as a download from this site.
That site looks good for someone who's new to this! Nice job so far. The theme developer may be a better resource for your Swank-specific questions but we'll try to help out here too when you get stuck.May 3, 2014 at 3:20 pm in reply to: How do you get the right Text Widget area to show? #103501
From the theme setup instructions:
This theme uses the content-sidebar-sidebar layout, with the two sidebar offset on the home page only.
The blue sidebar to the right will only show with this layout option.
Have you tried disabling all plugins? Not familiar with that Responsive Header one but it seems suspicious. Working with a clean slate with something like this will help.
Edit: The plugin isn't suspicious (Nick is well respected Genesis developer) but it looks like it may not have been updated in some time, and lots has changed with Genesis 2.0, plus you're trying to do something with the header which is where my "suspicious" comment was intended vis a vis the plugin.
