Jeannie, while the information that Davinder provided is Technically Correct; I work in the Real Estate arena and advise clients specific to this market segment.
If your using the WordPress SEO by YOAST plug-in and you want to ensure that your Real Estate listing is correctly indexed for Maximum views in the SERPS then you want to ensure the focus keyword is established something similar to this:

No Problem at all. That’s why these FORUMS are here. I have been helped many times here and I am just paying if forward.
Someone else may run into this same issue…and now they can find a quick answer for their issue.
Thanks for sharing . Probably should mark this POST as RESOLVED too.March 3, 2014 at 3:26 pm in reply to: Parallax Pro Theme widget section background problem #93265
That is strange. Try disabling your image MAP that is above this widget and see if that pulls your image back. Something is causing your image for Widget 5 to only display at 1140 x 126.
It also looks a table of some type is also showing for widget 5.
Remove all the widgets from Section 5 and try a NEW instance of a text only widget….something is saving over the top of your current widget. Then refresh your browser and clear cache…March 3, 2014 at 2:44 pm in reply to: Parallax Pro Theme widget section background problem #93261
Try disabling the contact form you are using and just insert Text to see if the BG Image fully stretches.
It looks like the issue may be the Contact Form Plug-in you are using. It appears that the java script is conflicting with the
Try something like Contact Form 7 – it’s very basic but it will get you up and running if you don’t want to use a Premium Plug-in like Gravity FormMarch 3, 2014 at 2:12 pm in reply to: Parallax Pro Theme widget section background problem #93256
You should only have a TEXT Widget installed for your Home Section 5 – if you are following the Default theme settings?
It looks like you have a User Profile that somehow is overwriting the default Text Widget settings.
Make sure all you have activated for that Widget is a Text Widget….that will get you back to a starting base, if that’s not the case, then there may be still some vestige of your css mod that is interfering with the widget default setting.
Hope this helps.
Glad that fixed for you. Yeah the caching issue can catch you….it’s bit me more times than I can count LOL
Ok… one more try…now that I know your on WPE.
I have had a number of issues with their Caching ….
Make sure you have “Object/Transient Cache” DISABLED – then purge the Cache again.
Clear Your Browser Cache, exit and restart browser and see what you get.
I would put even money that it’s a WPE Cache issue…..
When ever I work DEV or making adjustments to the site and I am not on STAGING…I DISABLE the CACHE and wait a few minutes before I start anything….this has caused me some headaches in the past until Tech Support helped work this scenario out.
Would be very interested in hearing if this corrects the issue ?
OK… I see your issue.
The Site container is Auto and that one line is controlling Top and Bottom Margins….which are both set to 3.2 REM (32 px)
If your ok with adjusting both the same, then reduce that value.
Otherwise: You may need to remove the Auto and set your Margins independent. Top, Bottom, Left Right.
May need to adjust Padding REM the same way.
Hope this helps.
1. Clear the Cache in your Browser.
2. Make sure you image is saved as .jpg (I have not tried this with PNG – but it works with .jpg)
From your Admin Console:
3. Select Appearance
4. Select Background
5. Browse to your Computer – where the Image is located and upload
6. You should NOW see a Preview of how that image will look as your background.
with options for position and tiling.
You need to modify the style sheet.
1. Open up the style.css in a text editor
2. Find the <div class=”site-container”>
3. Modify the Margin and Padding(s) to suite your taste.
Margin Default is 32 px
Top Padding Default is 36 px
Reducing these (2) variables will remove the “white border” area at the top.
If your using Firefox (install the Firebug plugin) then you can view this by Inspecting the Element and Layout of the Page
This also lets you make adjustments to test w/o affecting your code.
Hope this helps.November 6, 2013 at 12:00 pm in reply to: Know of any 3rd-party single page/parallax type Genesis child themes…? #71280
Bill, my reservations were not really about deviating from SP so much as the Genesis platform. Your comments otherwise are right on point. Sorry for the confusion on my part
Jsperl – Dude you rock…. I was not aware of that designer…. they have some really nice themes and I am liking that SIngle Theme very much…Thanks for sharing.November 6, 2013 at 10:53 am in reply to: Know of any 3rd-party single page/parallax type Genesis child themes…? #71267
I am also in a bit of a quandary on this. I have several potential new clients ….waiting on a demo of Denali. They understand my reasoning for only supporting the Genesis Framework for now….but they are pretty insistent on a one page Parallax theme.
I did purchase a copy of Jarvis to see what all the fuss was about. It has some very good points, but has also had a number of issues too. When the dev guy pushes out an update and does not take the time to even roll the version number in all the proper locations….makes me wonder how really meticulous he/she was with their code and where else I may run into issues?
Yes, they do provide support….but it’s not as detailed or expansive on what the SP folks provide. Also, a huge issue for me with this theme is no integration with GFORM…. in fact you have to hard code your Contact Form Info…. that is a big put-off, but so far my client really is leaning that way…this is not chump change were talking about….. I sure hope that Genesis comes up with something along this line pretty soon.
