    Multisite is just that, multiple sites. Each site uses the same install and can share plugins, themes … but content is seperated. There are some plugins that allow for some level of content sharing, but this is breaking the intended functionality.

    Think of how it works at WordPress.com. Many different sites being run on the one version of WordPress. Each admin can independently control their site within the controls allowed to them. That is the purpose behind multisite.

    At this time we recommend using the tag feature when posting child theme specific questions.

    Scotm,

    This is not intended behavior. We had fixed this before launch and it somehow snuck back in again. We’ll be addressing it again shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    For years I used FireFox almost exclusively. Way way back when I used Netscape, then Opera, then FireFox. If you are familiar with the evolution of browsers you should notice a trend, I have been avoiding IE from the beginning.

    That said, ever since the rapid update cycle in FireFox I’ve not been happy with them. The updates seem to kill plugin functionality and they often go backwards. Back around version 5 or 6 FireFox supported CSS3 100%, now there are several CSS3 features such as box-sizing that are only available using the -moz- prefix again.

    I finally abandoned FireFox despite my love for FireBug, which is the only thing that kept me on FireFox as long as I stayed. I use Chrome and Safari now. The built in developer tools are pretty good. Chrome is the better tool set of the two. In fact, when I am doing speed optimization, I find the tools in Chrome to be far superior to FireBug. I can find out much more on the load details with the built in tools than I could in FireBug with the ySlow extension.

    I’m actually using Safari to type this, but I’m pretty back and forth with Safari and Chrome depending on what I need at a time. Chrome is open in another window.

    The theme specific forums end up adding uneeded bloat. I recomend using the tags feature to tag which theme you are using. This keeps things simple but allows for a simple means of searching. For more info see this thread which directly addresses this.

    I’m not sure of a resource that explains exactly why, but check out this tutorial on using FireBug. http://studiopress.com/tips/using-firebug.htm

    Susan,

    Yeah, the midwest/southwest is a different culture. I live near DC now, so when I am forced to go to the City we walk everywhere, or take the metro. Actually we usually park at Vienna station, the first metro station on our way in, so I don’t have to deal with traffic inside the beltway at all.

    I live in a more rural setting and I think if I tried walking into town, which is only 3 miles, I’d be run over. Fortunately people are pretty cool about it if I’m walking in town. So if I’m not in a hurry I like to park in one place and walk everywhere.

    When I lived in the midwest and south west I never walked, no one ever walked. I did start bike riding till I nearly got run over.

    Let me know how things go and if we have a Genesis Connect event at South By Southwest again you need to come meet the crew. It is jut down the road in Austin.

    @apt,

    I encourage you and other users to fill in the tag with the theme they are using when asking questions.

    @cleo,

    The moderators are in these forums too. Go check the Design Tips forum. Several of the mods have already posted some cool tips for users and have answered some of the user customization questions. I can’t guarantee every custom request will be answered, but we aren’t writing it off just changing the format a bit so we don’t miss support requests.

    @gpsmapper,

    Any new forum will need time to develop usable material. This is one of the reasons the old forums will be left open. One way you can be a “super star” in these forums would be sharing information your find helpful from the old forums. This forum is building at about the same pace as the old forums already. A few years ago you wouldn’t find anything in the old forums. These will catch up and with a fresh start we have a much better foundation for building community involvement. If you check things out you will see that community members are already stepping up to help answer questions and share their own tips. This is exactly what we had hoped for.

    That is trickier. You have to do away with the custom header and manually set a background for #header then a seperate background for either #header .wrap or the #title-area depending on what you are trying to accomplish. You also need to make some responsive CSS to compensate if you are using a responsive theme like this.

    try adding this to your style sheet

    #header {
    background-position: center !important;
    }
