    Would that be?

    ‘description’ => __( ‘This is the welcome text widget.’, ‘themename‘ ),

    ‘description’ => __( ‘This is the welcome text widget.’, ‘balance‘ ),

    or is it Balance (with a capital B), balancetheme. There are no instructions for this anywhere.

    So far I’ve been able to put the widget across the top, but on all pages, which is not good enough. The hook given above for the home page only doesn’t work in the Balance theme. It breaks the code and my blog crashes (i.e. all you can see is a blank page and you need to re-upload the original .php files)

    Can anyone suggest another solution?

    I’ve now uploaded the Genesis Responsive Slider plugin. I have the Balance theme, which gives me the widgets: ‘Home Featured Left’ and ‘Home Featured Right’. What I need is a 960px widget.

    How can I get it?

    I’ve found a site that has exactly the kind of slider I was thinking of: http://empoweris.com/

    Can the Genesis Responsive Slider achieve something in those lines?

    Answer: yes, this site is using that plugin

    FAT Media’s right. I should only have the slider in the home page.

    Does anyone have a preference: Genesis Responsive Slider vs. Genesis Bootstrap Carousel

    anitac, I don’t know if I’m being blind, but I can’t see the connection between my original question and the link you’ve posted.

    jonahgirl, that’s very kind of you. Which sliders can I choose from?

    Thanks. I’ve now changed the number of posts to 10. In the Balance theme it appears that making the change in the home.php file is sufficient for all pages (at tleast the way I’ve got it set up).

    Thanks a lot.

    If anyone wants to change ‘Speak your mind’ to ‘Leave a comment’ (rather than ‘Leave a Comment’ – with a ‘C’) all you need to do is add to your functions.php file:

    ‘/** Modify the speak your mind text */
    add_filter( ‘genesis_comment_form_args’, ‘custom_comment_form_args’ );
    function custom_comment_form_args($args) {
    $args[‘title_reply’] = ‘Leave a comment';
    return $args;
    }

    I’ve now found the solution. If you want to change your post navigation colors, go Post Navigation in your style.css file

    My css now looks like this: (that’s darker background behind page numbers and a red active background with a white number)

    .navigation li a,
    .navigation li.disabled,
    .navigation li a:hover,
    .navigation li.active a {
    -moz-border-radius: 3px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 3px;
    background-color: #eee;
    border-radius: 3px;
    color: #777;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-weight: bold;
    padding: 8px 12px;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    .navigation li a:hover,
    .navigation li.active a {
    background-color: #BA0202;
    color: #fff;
    }

    Susan, you’ve made my day.

    How do I now customize the page number background color? I’d like to make them all a darker gray and the active one orange. I’ve looked in my css file, but  I can’t see where to do it there. Any clues?

    The very simply change to the functions.php file works great.

    I can confirm that both addresses match.

    My avatar appears on posts and comments, but not on my blog’s sidebar.

    When I go to Settings / Discussion I can get one of the generic avatars as the image shown on my sidebar, but I don’t get the option of choosing my own avatar.

    How do I get my picture to show on my blog’s sidebar? Do I need a plugin or a change in the code?

    I’m using Balance.

    In the post info section I deleted the date and the word ‘by’.

    I also deleted the footer back to top link, and all the footer credits text.

    The rest was left untouched.
