    Just an FYI in case anyone runs across this problem. If you’re logged into WordPress, and have the black bar at the top (I’m not sure what that bar is called) it will cause a gap to appear above the menu header when you resize the window to the size of an iPhone.

    However, if you log out of WordPress, and try again, you’ll notice the gap disappears. So I don’t think visitors to your site will actually see the gap. :)

    Also, if you’re like me and want to stop editing the child theme but add your own style sheet instead, just use this style on your custom style sheet

    .simple-social-icons li a:hover {
    	-webkit-transform: rotateZ(0deg);
    	-moz-transform: rotateZ(0deg);
    	transform: rotateZ(0deg);
    }

    I just saw that Scribble made a minor update so I’m going to try and see if that resolves anything. If anyone looks at the site in the next little while, it will be in maintenance mode until I get all the pieces knitted back together.

    AGH! No…didn’t fix it the issue. And now I’ve got an f’ed up site that needs to get sewn back together. I have 2 choices…go to the trouble of getting my custom CSS styles and widgets all back in a row. Or just move on.

    I believe it is time to move on down the road and choose another theme. Very tired of Scribble.

    Fair-the-well Scribble theme. You were fun while you lasted.

    Yes Ryan….the bug you found in the scribble.js is another bug that’s been around since a WordPress version about 3-4 updates ago. Like I said…I’m about to give up on the theme.

    Just for grins, I put the exact same post on another blog (the site is a WPMU site). The only difference is the theme. All plugins installed are “network installed” so it isn’t a plugin issue.

    so this seems to be 100% a Scribble bug.

    Thanks for the heads up. It seems what you’re describing is a different issue entirely…and a serious one. However, after looking online a bit, it seems that the issue I’m talking about was a big problem with IE8 as well as its inability to (or persnickety-ness) of rendering opacity. But that’s another problem for another discussion.

    I can and probably will include the function code described in your article in my theme. But if IE8 doesn’t render that CSS code appropriately, then anyone visiting the site with IE8 will experience the problem.

    A bigger problem IMO: anyone dealing with a responsive design (all current Genesis themes) will is having this same bug on their site but may not know it.

    Luckily, IE9, 10 and 11 don’t have this bug. But as we remember from the good old, bad old days of IE6, people sometimes have a hard time updating their browsers…particularly within companies and such won’t allow them to do it themselves. BTW, I learned of this problem because my husband works for a Fortune 50 company (actually a top 10 company) and yes…they are still using IE8. So its not like its only loser companies and low-lying fruit who are browsing the web with obsolete browsers. Apparently, it costs millions of dollars to change something this simple. So change is slow to happen.

    But back to the bug….

    If I’m correct…then anyone here in Genesis land who is using a responsive design, is actually having the same problem I am seeing, but may not know it.

    I think there should be a fix. Unfortunately, what I’ve found lately is that in order to get an answer from support around here, we have to actually submit a ticket — which seems silly. But if they need to answer the same question 10X because 10 different people submitted support tickets instead of having the question and answer discussed publicly, so be it. i’m off to write a support ticket.

    So I found a “fix” that will work if all else fails. But frankly I’d rather find a solution I can do in CSS or elsewhere so I don’t have to fix each and every photograph that gets uploaded to my WP site.

    If I go in and remove the explicit “width” and “height” attributes that WP places on images, then the image will render fine in IE8 and all browsers. You can see the screenshot below.

    However, like I said, I have to actually remember to REMOVE something that WP automatically places in the code when I embed an image on a post or page. So if anyone knows of a CSS or other fix that will resolve the issue in IE8 without screwing up the responsiveness of the images in all other browsers, I’d appreciate it.

    Thanks Tom for all your help. I notified customer support of your solution and they then admitted they must have misunderstood my original question….stating their answer was not the correct one. However, your’s was. :)

    Thanks again Tom. In the end, I basically changed everything. “In for a penny. In for a pound,” I guess applies here. I decided to go with a custom post type instead of trying to intermingle my portfolio posts with my blog posts and keep them separate.

    It took a bit of finagling to get things to show I wanted to show up, and things to go away I wanted removed. But in the end, I’ve got it working. Now it needs some tweaking and some more portfolio items.

    Because I’m using the CPT, I was able to use the description field and didn’t have to use the archive fields. It works fine. But on the regular category archives page, you are correct, the only way I could get the description to appear was to use the archive fields. I have no idea why that Genesis tutorial was referred to by support because it does not work in any way. I guess I should let them know that if it works…it definitely doesn’t work on all themes and perhaps they need to update the tutorial to include the information you provided. :)

    Thanks Tom. Yes, that example you linked to is the one I wanted. Studiopress support provided the link to this tutorial – http://my.studiopress.com/tutorials/category-blog-page/ – and I followed those steps. But the description at the top of the page is still not showing up. So I’ll have to play around a little more and try to figure out what I’m doing wrong. I’ve created the description. I’ve created a new page that links to the category. The correct posts are showing up on the page. But the description doesn’t appear. Here is the page I’m referring to on my site.

    I decided to change themes. So this is no longer needed.

    I’m still not 100% clear what you mean so what I *think* you mean might actually be an insult to your question. If this isn’t what you meant, just disregard.

    The content area will be as large/long as the content you have created there. So if you want to add content to the static page you created named HOME, just type your content and it will appear and your page will be as long as needed to accommodate it. If you want it longer, the best I can say is to create a DIV in the HTML editor for that page and give that div a class name.

    Add that class to your CSS and give it a min height of whatever amount you want. For example,

    .homeDiv {
    min-height:500px;
    }

    As an aside, if you don’t want the header text to appear in the content area of your homepage, you can add this to your CSS…

    .post-572 h1 {
    display:none;
    }

    That’s a simple hack and can probably be fixed in a better way. But it works as long as you don’t delete the current homepage and create a new one. The number 572 is referencing that specific page’s H1 tag. Also, no other H1 tag would appear on that page as long as you have that class on your CSS page. So if you need a better fix, you’ll have to edit the code.

    Hi,
    Glad it worked for you.
    (1) To make the widgets appear on the single post pages, you’ll have to do some major editing of the theme. You’ll need to read some tutorials on how to do that and add a new page in your child theme’s folder as you can’t change the genesis core. If that’s more than you care to do, what would work is creating a widget and place it in the blog’s sidebar. You can style the widget using CSS to look similar to the one at the top. You can turn on JetPack and use the feature where you can show/hide widgets on certain pages/posts. When you have the widget created, just make certain you hide it on all pages. That way, it will only appear on the sidebar of single posts. (I think that will work. You might have to play around with that until you get it showing where you want it and not showing everywhere else.).

    (2) I’m not sure what you mean here. When I look at your site, the gray bar run’s 100% across the page no matter how wide the browser window and the content is always centered. The color of that gray bar is #333333 in the CSS.

    Oh…one thing I should add. If you want those widgets to appear on your blog’s index page, then leave the page’s name alone. It’s current name is home.php. Leave it that name and those widgets will appear on the index page of your blog. (Not the single post pages).

    If you don’t want those widgets to appear on the index page of your blog, then rename the home.php page. You could simply name it to something like home-old.php

    One thing you could do is recreate the content of the current home.php page and name it something else. This is important in case you want to go back to the original way the theme works.

    At the top of the page, currently the code is written:

    <?php
    add_action( 'genesis_meta', 'balance_home_genesis_meta' );
    /**

    Make certain you add the following to the top under the beginning PHP tag:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: WidgetPage
    */
    add_action( 'genesis_meta', 'balance_home_genesis_meta' );
    /**

    This will create a new template page that you can use for all of your website’s pages. You will not be able to choose this for your blog post pages.

    Where it says ‘WidgetPage’ you can name it anything you like.

    Now, whenever you create a new page and want those widgets to appear on the page, choose this template from the drop-down list under Page Attributes for that page.

    To make sure everything appears correctly, create a new static page and name it Home, or whatever. Make certain this page has the template chosen above. Create a second page and name it Blog. Make certain to choose BLOG as the template page.

    You’ll then need to go into the Admin area > Settings > Reading

    At the top of the page, select the radio button for STATIC PAGE and choose front page = HOME
    and posts page = BLOG.

    When you create your menu, make certain you provide links to your BLOG page and your HOME page of your website.

    Hope that helps.
