    Hi CJWilly,

    Just a note to let you know I’ll push out a fix some time today. I’ll post here when it’s done.

    Hi CJWilly,

    It looks like a bug. It seems like I missed a couple of strings when generating the po file. I’ll have a look to see what’s going on when I get home.

    Hi ohmichea,

    Actually I have pulled that theme out of retirement and have been working on bringing it up to current Genesis standards. It will be mobile responsive and have a wider layout. If you can hang in for a few more days. :)

    Hi RonnyMac,

    I was having this very discussion on Twitter a few hours ago. Initially I was like you. I didn’t care for the way the style sheet is now written. I released several child themes using the old style sheet and grew accustomed to it. But you know what? Now that I’ve had some time to study the new style sheet I really do like it.

    Yes, it will take some time to get used to. But the way it is now organized is much more efficient. For instance, rather than having the same font size defined in a dozen different places you’ll find them all in one spot. Font sizes grouped together. Font colours grouped together and so forth.

    Genesis aims to be lean and mean yet easily extensible. That same philosophy has been carried over to the CSS. While it seems like more work at the moment, give it a chance. I think you’ll grow to like it. :)

    Hi beoleary1

    Look in the style sheet for this …

    h1,
    h2,
    h2 a,
    h2 a:visited {
    clear: both;
    font-size: 42px;
    margin: 0 0 20px;
    }

    Hi Tracy,

    Nope. The only one of their products I use is BackupBuddy. After researching various backup solutions I settled on that one. Well worth the money.

    Hi eachdaydeb,

    That’s why small images are normally used if you want it to repeat. With respect to your question about making it seamless, unfortunately graphic design is not one of my strong points. Hopefully someone else can chime in here.

    'feature_content_limit' => 300,

    to …

    'feature_content_limit' => 0,

    0 will return the full post.

    Hi Ted,

    I haven’t looked but I’m sure there is more than one plugin in the WordPress Plugin Directory to set up ads. What you see on the Pretty demo site is simply a text widget.

    Hi Ted,

    Just looking at a copy of Pretty right now. Yes, this theme uses the Genesis Grid Loop. Take a look at home.php and you’ll see this …

    /** Add support for Genesis Grid Loop */
    function pretty_grid_loop_helper() {
    genesis_grid_loop( array(
    'features' => 2,
    'feature_image_size' => 'feature',
    'feature_image_class' => 'post-image',
    'feature_content_limit' => 300,
    'grid_image_size' => 'grid-thumbnail',
    'grid_image_class' => 'alignleft post-image',
    'grid_content_limit' => 150,
    'more' => __( '[Continue reading]', 'genesis' ),
    'posts_per_page' => 6,
    ) );
    }

    That is the Genesis Grid Loop. There are all sorts of things you can configure here. If you only want to display 1 teaser instead of 2 change …

    'features' => 2,

    to …

    'features' => 1,

    With respect to the images, you can set a feature image for each post while you’re in the Create Post screen. If you don’t set a feature image, it will automatically pull the first image from within the post (if there is one) and display that instead.

    Edit: this editor is mangling the code I’m trying post.

    Hi qleapent,

    Could you post a link to the site? It makes it easier for us to help. It sounds as if your theme is using the Genesis Grid Loop on a custom home.php file.

    Hi qleapent,

    You could do it simply by adding HTML to a text widget. However the site you reference seems to be using this plugin.

    Hi designbytracy,

    If you don’t mind spending the money BackupBuddy by iThemes is an excellent choice. I use it all the time. I’m sure others will chime in with some good free alternatives.

    Hi eachdaydeb,

    Looking at your style sheet I see you are trying to add the image like this …
    background: ("images/header.png") repeat-x;

    It should read …

    background: url(images/header.png) repeat-x;

    Note the addition of “url”

    Additionally, I tried to view the image directly and get a message that says “This image cannot be displayed because it contains errors”. Try re-editing or re-saving the image.
