    Ooo, a new play thing. I don’t have it but I’m off to go get it now. :)

    Haha! I just uploaded a screenshot to show you. It must have been a cache issue. Glad it’s working. :)

    Hi Fonte. The landing page I’m seeing is fairly narrow, it looks like 700px wide. What are you seeing?

    Okay, your default layout site-wide is full width, yes? You can override that on a post by post or page by page basis.

    Once Genesis Simple Sidebars is activated, go to its configuration screen and create your new sidebar. Next, go to your page, let’s say your About page, scroll toward the bottom where you will find the Layout Settings meta box. Choose the layout you want – left sidebar or right sidebar. This setting will apply to this page only.

    Next, on the right side of the page you’ll see a metabox called Sidebar Selection. Select the new sidebar you created. Now you can add whatever widgets to that sidebar in your widgets screen.

    Your entire site will be running on your default selection of full width except for that one page. And the sidebar it uses should be your custom sidebar.

    Here is a test site with your requested change. http://dev.wpcanada.ca/

    The only thing I can think of is a browser cache or plugin cache. (if you’re running one)

    Hmm, that’s odd. I just tried it on a test site and it worked fine. Are you running a cache plugin perhaps?

    Hi gardenfork. I don’t think you need that bit in the functions file. I think it is just a matter of syntax. Try <!--nextpage--> instead of what you have.

    Hi hanuman. Creating a page template is one way but this is probably easier … Genesis Simple Sidebars

    Hi Fonte. There doesn’t seem to be any specific css for the landing page so we’ll need to add it. If you open up the style.css file and go to Line 476 you’ll see this …

    /* Site Containers
    --------------------------------------------- */

    Just under that you’ll see the various rules for the .site-container, .site-inner and .wrap. Look for this …

    .agency-pro-home .site-inner {
    	padding: 0;
    }

    and just underneath add this …

    .agency-pro-landing .site-inner,
    .agency-pro-landing .wrap {
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	max-width: 700px;
    }

    See if that helps.

    Hmmm, the formatting in my response somehow got mangled and I don’t seem to be able to further edit it. So, I’ll repost my answer.

    Hi joemeboe. If you open Going Green’s style.css file and go to Line 930 you’ll see this …

    .site-description {
    	color: #287241;
    	font-size: 14px;
    	font-weight: 700;
    	line-height: 1;
    	letter-spacing: 2px;
    	margin: 0;
    	text-transform: uppercase;
    }

    Change this line …

    color: #287241;

    to …

    color: #fff;

    As for the 2nd question I’m assuming you want to center the site description under the site title as opposed to centering it on the page? If so, you could add a rule to the above something like …

    padding: 0 0 0 120px;

    That will give you 0 padding on the top, left & bottom of the site description while applying 120px of padding to the left side. You’ll want to adjust the 120px to your liking.

    Now, if you do that you’ll probably want to make one more change. In the responsive section of the style.css file, the site description is aligned to the center at the 1023px breakpoint. Scroll down to Line 1907 where you’ll see this …

    @ media only screen and (max-width: 1023px) {

    Scroll down just a bit more to Line 1955 where you’ll see this …

    .genesis-nav-menu,
    	.site-description,
    	.site-header .title-area,
    	.site-header .search-form,
    	.site-title {
    	text-align: center;
    }

    See how text-align: center is applied to .site-description? That’s fine, but remember we added some left padding earlier? We need to negate that now so everything lines up nicely.

    So, just under that block add this …

    .site-description {
    	padding: 0;
    }

    That will get rid of the padding we added earlier.

    Hi Sue. You’ll find all of the slider settings, including the number of slides to show, under Genesis > Slider Settings.


    in reply to: Do you use built in editor? #116520

    I never use the built in editor. In fact, one of the first things I do when building a new site is disable it. I always make changes offline then upload the file via FTP. I do this for several reasons:

    1. By downloading the file then re-upping the edited version I always have a local backup in case I make a mistake. Stuff happens.
    2. Speaking of boo-boos, if you make one while using the built in editor you’ll crash the site and will have to fix it via FTP anyway.
    3. I see the built in editor as nothing but another potential attack vector and prefer to simply negate that possibility.

    I can’t speak to the SEO implications but to address the second part of your question see if this helps, http://w3guy.com/permalink-post-title-genesis/
