    Hi Krystyn,

    Just wanted to let you know I’ve seen your post. I have to run a few errands and I’ll be back later to help you finish this off.

    Aaah, you edited your post; I didn’t see that.

    Change #header ‘min-height: 318px’ to ‘height: 50px’ and remove ‘overflow: hidden’

    To .wrap add ‘position: relative’

    Change your CSS to this:

    .header-image #title-area,
    .header-image #title,
    .header-image #title a {
    	display: block;
    	height: 318px;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	padding: 0;
            position: absolute;
            right: 0;
    	text-indent: -9999px;
    	width: 300px;
    }

    To .sidebar add ‘margin-top: 290px’

    Now you should be all setup for desktop screens. As the browser width decreases the above changes are going to need to be “undone” and new rules applied to their respective @media screen sizes depending on how you want it too look on those devices.

    Please leave a post here if you need help with that.

    (P.S. Put the menu back in the header widget. We can make the space below it go away)

    Hi Krystyn,

    I started to look at it and then refreshed and it changed. I think you are still making adjustments. Just make another post when you need a hand. :)

    Hi Krystyn,

    The title area has left float and the header widget has a right float. The first step will be flipping those around and then fiddling with positions and margins to get everything where you want it.

    I’ll leave you to it for now. If you can’t get it how you want it, just post in this thread (I’m subscribed) and I’ll help you out.

    Take care,

    Doh! Didn’t think about the sidebar dropping below the content.

    OK, put the the logo in your header (top, left) and put your menu in the header widget area. I’ll help you with the css to move everything around so it is positioned the way it looks now, but with the logo not in your sidebar.

    Just got home and have to unpack. I’ll be back to this thread later.

    Hi Krystyn,

    There are a couple of ways you could do this.  One would be to re-position the main nav to be within the #inner div.

    Another would be to apply “position:relative” and a negative “top” value to the #sidebar rule.  If you do this, be sure to remove the “overflow:hidden” rule from the #inner.

    Please let me know if you need more specific help with this.

    Hi Anita,

    As we discussed, a CSS solution might be more accommodating to your content at variable widths than the background image.

    First register the widgets in functions.php:

    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    	‘id’				=> ‘circle-1′,
    	‘name’			=> __( ‘Circle #1′, ‘minimum’ ),
    	‘description’	=> __( ‘This is the left circle on the home page.’, ‘minimum’ ),
    ) );
    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    	‘id’				=> ‘circle-2′,
    	‘name’			=> __( ‘Circle #2′, ‘minimum’ ),
    	‘description’	=> __( ‘This is the middle circle on the home page.’, ‘minimum’ ),
    ) );
    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    	‘id’				=> ‘circle-3′,
    	‘name’			=> __( ‘Circle #3′, ‘minimum’ ),
    	‘description’	=> __( ‘This is the right circle on the home page.’, ‘minimum’ ),
    ) );

    The hook those widgets into where the feature image normally goes on the home page. Still in functions.php replace:

    if ( is_home() ) {
    		echo ‘<div id="featured-image"><img src="’. get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ‘/images/sample.jpg" /></div>';
    	}

    with:

    if ( is_home() ) {
    	echo ‘<div id="home-circles">';
    
    		genesis_widget_area( ‘circle-1′, array(
    			‘before’ => ‘<div class="circle-1 widget-area">’,
    		) );
    
    		genesis_widget_area( ‘circle-2′, array(
    			‘before’ => ‘<div class="circle-2 widget-area">’,
    		) );
    
    		genesis_widget_area( ‘circle-3′, array(
    			‘before’ => ‘<div class="circle-3 widget-area">’,
    		) );
    
    	echo ‘</div><!– end #home-circles –>';
    
    	}

    And for the CSS:

    /* Home Circles
    ———————————————————— */
    
    #home-circles {
    	background-color: #58585a;	
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	max-width: 1600px;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	padding: 3% 1.5%;
    	text-align: center;
    
    }
    
    .circle-1,
    .circle-2,
    .circle-3 {
    	border-radius: 50%;
    	float: left;
    	height: 0;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	padding-bottom: 31%;
    	width: 32%;
    }
    
    
    .circle-2,
    .circle-3  {
    	margin: 0 0 0 2%;
    }
    
    .circle-1 {
    	background-color: #c3c4c6;
    	}
    
    .circle-2 {
    	background-color: #fefefe;
    }
    
    .circle-3 {
    	background-color: #7a7e89;
    }

    After you do that, drop in a text widget and you’ll see your next challenge. The CSS border-radius (and your original image) doesn’t “contain” or hold the text within the circumference of the circle. The text will take up the full width of the widget at all heights. So to keep the text within the circle you will have to add padding to all sides. How much padding depends on your text.

    I haven’t provided any responsive code for your style sheet yet. Play around with it and your anticipated text and move the browser window in and out a bit.

    Take care,

    There’s a few things you could do, but perhaps the simplest would be to rename the home.php file in your theme folder. Then set your reading settings to display latest posts and see if it doesn’t look the same as it does now.

    Let me know.

    It doesn’t look like the Midnight theme is still available so I can’t look at it’s default. How is the posts page different?

    Hi,

    How are your reading settings configured? It appears are you using a blog page template and then setting that to be the static front-page under reading settings? If you are older/newer doesn’t work on pages.
