Thank you Brad! As you tested the icon appears!
Unfortunately the title area in the header is no longer clickable to home. Any thoughts as to how to effect and return that action?
Hi Brad, I feel as thick as two short planks but I can’t get this to work. What I am seeking in the text title displayed in the header is “word icon-font word”, in simpler terms I am trying to have a Font Awesome icon font appear between two words. The site title will Google Webfonts and that the CSS is edited to do. The issue is getting the Font Awesome Icon to display correctly in the site title in the header. I have tried a number of plugins as well as the code provided by Font Awesome and placed in the HEAD.
Any additional insights would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
@rglohre – You don’t actually need to move it (the new site) “to the home folder” so you do not have any issues . You just need to transfer two files; the index.php and .htaccess files from the “wp2″ folder to the public_html. You can learn more with the links below.
@abbypanda – This is an excellent how-to from the WordPress Codex –
Per thread above just install WoirdPress in a new folder and develop the new site using that sub-directory. Then when you are done, just transfer the htaccess file and the index.php file from the “wp2″ folder to the root folder. And just edit the index.php file to include the path to “wp2″ Eg – change the line that reads
ps – The method above also does not require any domain name DNS changes so you do not risk the potential for SEO related issues. And the new site is available instantly upon completing the edit/transfer of the two files, as the DNS does not change it does need to wait for the propagation of any change.
I fully agree with GaryJ.
Please leave MY browser settings to me to adjust.
Don’t be intrusive and subvert settings/adjustments that may be preferred or needed by your site visitor … unless you are perhaps seeking to increase your site’s bounce rate.
Please, what is your disagreement with GaryJ’s last point, “someone with poor eyesight for instance may need to zoom in.”?
I use the method below linked below which works great for Metro, and it also provides a better more scalable header image and the image is also available for your FB posts.
FWIW – since you are using Metro you may also want to use this link to fix the widget titles –
@chalfant – No need at all to keep a Prose based site “minimalistic”.
In actuality it is now very easy to create a site with Prose that looks very much like Magazine or Backcountry just by using David Decker’s excellent FREE plugin named Genesis Prose Extras – http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-prose-extras/
And it will not “create issues in regard to loading times and such.”
“FINALLY: Add a Widgetized Homepage to Your Prose Child Theme
Finally have a homepage template for Prose that’s widgetized! Plus, it works with Prose 1.5+ auto update system, that means, you don’t lose your home template/ widget stuff when performing these sweet auto updates!
In general, a great helper tool for the Prose Child Themes for Genesis!”

You might give a look to the Genesis Extender plugin –
You might explore using this coding –
Looks like a great child theme! Is Flint coming out of BETA anytime soon?
You are welcome. Glad we helped.
Hope you have gotten on well with the Gen2beta. Looks like WP3.6rc will drop very soon so Gen2.0 will be here soon too!

What is incomplete is execution of Step 2, Commenting out or removing the original existing “Add support for custom header” code in functions.php.
Eg change this section –
/** Add support for custom header */ add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array( ‘width’ => 960, ‘height’ => 135 ) );
/** Add support for custom header */ /* add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array( ‘width’ => 960, ‘height’ => 135 ) ); */
Or just delete it.
And then add the code from Step 6 to the functions file.

Using FileZilla or similar navigate to – /public_html/wp-content/themes/balance. All of the files for the currently active theme (balance) are in the balance folder and sub folders.
I just viewed your site using Win7 in FF21, IE10, Chrome27, Safari5.1, Opera12.5. Your site’s home page presented fully in each browser. So I have little idea as to what is causing you not to be able to see your site in some browsers.

I just checked your site. It is up. You must have found the path to replace the file(s)?

Yes, exactly! Use FTP or the hosting file manager to replace the problematic theme file(s).
