    You can enable that functionality with custom code in the child theme, but it isn’t done on purpose because updates are intended to come through Genesis. Child themes should be edited directly and making for an auto update would break the child theme customizations of many users. While some developers may wish to tie into an update script is isn’t something that will be adopted by default for all child themes. You can see how the update scripts look in Prose 1.5+

    oh, and bumping your post is actually a good way to make sure it isn’t seen by the folks helping out.

    Please don’t paste your entire CSS file. That makes for REALLY long posts with a ton of code that just isn’t needed. That makes most volunteers walk away because it really creates a bit of an unmanageable thing. A much better solution is to fill in the URL field with the URL of your site. This creates a link automatically that opens in a new tab and is set to nofollow which is ideal for sharing your site for support. Seeing the site makes it possible to see the HTML markup and also the CSS if needed.

    As for your issue, the HTML5 output for the genesis_widget_area() function requires that you declare the “after” argument because “before” may not be a

    [php]
    genesis_widget_area( ‘home-top’, array(
    ‘before’ => ‘<div class="home-top widget-area">’,
    ‘after’ => ‘</div>’,
    ) );
    [/php]

    You need to do that for any genesis_widget_area() function.

    Static front pages will not paginate. You need to use the latest posts on the front page and edit the code that forced the layout of the home page in the home.php file if you want pagination on the front page.

    Anthony,

    sorry for the trouble you are having. This is a bug in the theme and we are fixing it for the download. On issues like this feel free to contact support via my.studiopress.com. We work very hard to have a quick turn around on support issues. Right now our average first response is about 5 hours.

    I see that you have it working correctly on the site you linked to. For anyone else having this issue, please add this code to the style.css file. Exact placement isn’t important, just make sure it is not inside the responsive section or inside another CSS rule set.
    [css]
    .header-image #title a {
    background: none !important;
    padding: 0;
    }
    [/css]

    Again, very sorry for the frustration this has caused. If you need anything else remember you can drop us a note in help desk. The theme price includes the theme, support, and this amazing forum we maintain.

    Unfortunately there isn’t anything we can do to force something like that to be taken down. The only way to do that is through legal channels.

    In chrome please make sure you have the developer tools active when you load the widgets page and check the console tab to see if there are any script conflicts.

    Could you try enabling Genesis as the active theme and only GFWA active and see if it works. What version of WordPress are you using?

    Does this happen if all plugins are disabled including GFWA?

    I’m seeing your site working. Did you figure this out?

    The XML file can only import the demo content, that is how the WordPress import works. We could bypass that and use our own import, but we prefer to use WordPress functionality instead of bypassing it. Additionally we find that by providing the setup tutorials users will learn more about how the theme works so that they can make adjustments for their personal needs more readily.

    ok, so this thread got interesting after I saw the initial post. I’m going to close it after I share the news. I like the idea of a field for the URL and think it can be very helpful. I know one of the first things I ask for a lot of issues I help with is “please include a link to your site.” Sadly I still have to ask this a lot in help desk even though there is a field for this, so I don’t know that the URL field will solve the issue but it might help.

    To make it better I did some fun stuff to it. In theory it will automatically add the http:// prefix so the link will format correctly even if that was left out. So designsbynickthegeek.com will be converted to http://designsbynickthegeek.com. This is done on save so it doesn’t need a lot of overhead. It also runs wp_kses() for security because … hey public form right.

    The URL is added to the bottom of the content if the field is filled in and it will automatically make the link open in a new tab/window and sets the rel to nofollow. This should help alleviate concerns about SEO issues and links to posts somewhat.
