    I think I solved my own problem. They key: keeping .content at around 700px, but editing .content-sidebar-sidebar .content to 500px. This keeps the frontpage and article pages displaying correctly.

    Brad, I tried both css options and the tag meta remains on the archive page. Does it matter the archive is based on a custom taxonomy (in this case, “channel”)?

    URL: http://ithacaindy.com/cornell-news — I want this blog page to display only posts matching the “Cornell” category. I used the query_args custom field with the category id as the argument. However, all post containing the string “Cornell”, along with entries categorized as “Cornell” display.

    MicroData Manager is interesting, if not a bit hard to understand. I’m looking for a lightweight answer to molding Genesis’ baked-in support for schema.org to a newsroom editing environment. The plugin would be bettered by offering a default setting establishing the Article schema for all articles published. Instead, MDM requires article-by-article intervention. I’m also hope to get away from adding another plugin to solve a problem with the theme. I was hope to be able to hook into Genesis, changing the Blog schema to article.

    Microdata Manager is interesting, but I’m trying to get away from theme-based and unnecessary plugins. I had in mind a hook function that would replace the Blog schema with the Article schema, plus inject Article-based schema items into the article headlines, author, content and date published. The hooks could then become part of my core plugin which I share with all sites on my news network. (An alternative, I realize, is Multisite, where plugins could be enabled on an individual or network basis.)

    Thanks. I’m working on making home-top-left/right 100% in media queries.

    I’m still working out the mechanics. For instance, The genesis_widget_area tag creates one widget area with starting and ending divs. If I create home-top-left and home-top-right within home-top, the coding would go something like this, I think:

    echo ‘<div class=”home-top”>’;
    genesis_widget_area( ‘home-top-left’, array(
    ‘before’ => ‘<div class=”home-top-left widget-area”>’,
    ‘after’ => ‘</div>’,
    ) );
    genesis_widget_area( ‘home-top-right’, array(
    ‘before’ => ‘<div class=”home-top-right widget-area”>’,
    ‘after’ => ‘</div>’,
    ) );
    echo ‘</div’>’;

    But what displays is the home-top-left div and widget with the home-top-right widget appearing just below. The css for the two divs has the left floated left and the right floated right. I’m not sure what I’m missing to get the two divs to align correctly.

    That’s what I thought. But I’m working out the mechanics. The genesis_widget_area tag has ‘<div class=”home-top widget-area”>’ as the before. Do I edit this along the lines of ‘<div class=”home-top widget-area”><div class=”home-top-left widget-area”>’?

    Update: I found the problem with my use of Dave Decker’s Genesis Layout Extras plugin. The problem was I had failed to load the necessary CSS. Now the content/secondary-sidebar-sidebar works as promised.

    That suspension was taken care of Wednesday night – an overlooked invoice. Anyway, let me know what you think.

    I think I’ve found the fix. I need to edit this line:

    <div class="content-sidebar-sidebar-wrap">

    to

    <div class="content-secondary-sidebar-sidebar-wrap">

    I’ve tested this with Firebug, but I don’t know what filed to edit to make the permanent fix.

    I tried the plugin. I added the content/secondary/primary layout option. Enabled it as the default. But when I display my site, the display is secondary on top of primary, then content to the right. I’d like to discover how to implement the content/secondary/primary layout without needing all of the plugin’s extras, though.

    I fixed the width issue by adding the width parameter, but the issue of the menu item text not being pushed offscreen remains. Here are the two css descriptors:

    .navlogo {
    background: url(images/_Indy_Logo-White2.png) no-repeat left center;
    padding: 3px 0 1px 20px;
    width: 100px;
    }

    .menu-item-26963 .nav-primary ul li a a:hover {
    text-indent: -9999px;

    }
