    Hi,

    I haven’t used Theme Fuse nor seen the code, so can’t comment directly a point-by-point on which is better. As far as Genesis, I used it after seeing the community of developers working with the software. The forums, the #genesiswp Twitter hashtag, the third-party devs building plugins and wriiting tutorials, etc are excellent sources of information, tips, suggestions, best practices and more.

    The team of contributors to Genesis core (both StudioPress folks and community developers who help) have a strong passion to make the best possible parent theme that are easy to extend with relatively little code. Genesis is regularly updated while keeping Genesis lean and simple (e.g. no kitchen sink of unneeded things for show and flash). The licensing is supportive of developers and the free upgrades to Genesis core ensures your client sites can stay with the latest and greatest.

    In short, I have zero hesitation in recommending Genesis. It’s solid.

    2. Instead of using [footer_backtotop text=....], you can add in regular html, e.g. $backtotop = '<img src="http://location-of-image.jpg">';

    3. I don’t quite follow what the issue is. For me, it’s wrapping and seems aligned currently. Pic of it in the hover state: https://cloudup.com/cXPrU2aLHOf

    Hi Fr. John,

    It appears that the #subbutton is set to display: none;, which is why it isn’t appearing. This rule is defined in the section beginning on line 2063 of your theme’s style.css. You can remove the display: none; line to have it reappear.

    Doing that, adds it back, but it’s not placed in a good spot.

    My suggestion would be to add the following rule to your style.css (the very, very end of the file is fine if you’re not sure where):
    `.call-to-action input[type=text], .call-to-action input[type=email] {
    padding: 13px 5px 10px;
    }`

    That’ll reduce the width of the name/email fields enough to get the Go button in line (at least for me on my browser). The middle value (5px) is what I reduced from the preset to get it to “thin up” enough. Also, this will keep all other input fields the same size as before so it shouldn’t make any unintended changes.

    Hope that helps! Thanks Wes for alerting me on Twitter too. Peace!

    Hey Danny,

    I have a big client meeting in the morning to launch a new site. Okay if I check this out tomorrow evening?

    My first thought thought re is_singular and the quickblog, have you tried doing it like this:
    is_singular(array( 'post', 'quickpost' )); (just trying to clear out maybe easy things first!)

    On line 2248 of your style.css, you’ll see

    .enews #subbox, .s {

    change that to

    .enews #subbox, .enews #subbox1, .s {

    Can you be more exact on what sucks? I could suggest some changes but don’t want to waste your time.

    Were you able to try just changing the e-mail field name setting to “dsar_18″ (without quotes)? I was able to get it working using that. I’m only repeating it as the enews extended widget seems to blend in with the theme a bit smoother than the DS code.

    Thanks.

    Have you been able to resolve this? It looks good to me, but my sense of design isn’t great. :-)

    Hi,

    From the code provided, I was able to get it working (I think… no error message, redirected onto page on your site) using dsar_18 as the value for the e-mail field name.

    Cheers!

    I’m not familiar with it either, but just a quick double-check before anyone digs too deep.

    If you copied/pasted the code as is, some of the straight quotes would have been re-rendered as fancy quotes, namely the new function (sf_new_comments).  Assuming everything else is right, that would bork up everything.

    Hi Rick,

    Have you posted this in the Jetpack forums? http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/jetpack

    I can’t think of what would cause this to happen specifically in Genesis.

    To confirm—you’re referring to the Jetpack feature that autoposts new posts to Twitter, Facebook, etc?

    Julie,

    That code is working for me, though, depending on where you copied it from, it may be malformatted. Single-quotes must be the traditional single-quotes and not the “fancy” counterpart. See here:

    https://gist.github.com/kraftbj/5221737

    Using the first code, I can remove it from a stock version of Education without issue (ref: http://sp.brandonkraft.net as of now).

    Thanks,

    Brandon

    I’m sorry—I don’t understand what you’re trying to remove.

    It looks to me that there isn’t a blog on that site.

    Hi Julie,

    My apologies for the delayed response. It’s usually best to start a new thread when posting an issue—this one was a bit “buried” since the original poster’s issue was resolved.

    It looks like you were able to resolve this issue? If you’re still having issue, please let me know.

    Cheers!
