    Thanks Susan – i tried several combinations thinking that the links may be a problem (i even put the link inside <code> tags but to no avail)

    Thanks for resurrecting one of them anyway, hopefully it will help the op!

    I am so frustrated now!

    Have been trying to help with an answer but nothing happens – perhaps my advice is being filtered :-(

    You could try wpmudev.org

    Seeing this thread actually inspired me to finally add the videos to my own site (something i’ve been meaning to do for months!!)

    If you want to see what the wpmudev videos look like, take a look at the ones i’ve added to my site – http://poshweb.co.uk/wordpress-video-tutorials/adding-deleting-restoring-wordpress-posts/

    I’ve heard that wp101.com is supposed to be quite good but it seems pricey if you want to put the videos on your own site.
    There are also comprehensive videos available as part of a wpmu membership http://premium.wpmudev.org/wordpress-video-tutorials/

    You could try wrapping your columns in a new div, and then adding a pseudo class to your new div, like..

    .your-new-div:after {
    clear:both;
    }

    I used this jquery plugin a while back and it was quite straightforward…

    I thought it was a little clunky when i played with it…but i didn’t give it a really good test. I am currently thinking about using either ManageWP.com (monthly fee) or InfiniteWP.com (free with paid addons).

    Thanks very much Gary :-)

    Genesis works a little differently, so you won’t have a single.php or page.php. It really depends on exactly what you are trying to achieve. You can create your own templates, or you can use hooks in your functions.php file to add/change behaviour…

    I usually do as Susan suggested – but it will still be clickable. I had a search around and have read the following:

    Put anything you like in the URL field and add it to the menu. Once it is there, click on it to edit it and delete what is in the URL field (leaving the name) then save the menu.

    This is reported to have the effect you desire although i must confess that i have never tried this – may be worth a bash!

    It’s disappearing from view because you have a max-height:120px; set on your header so there’s no room for it. Once you get rid of that, you will be able to see it and style it to go where you want it to.

    In your functions.php you will have the following line

    add_action( ‘genesis_meta’, ‘sample_viewport_meta_tag’ );

    Try commenting it out by putting // in front of it.

    In your style.css you will also have lots of extra style information near the end for different device sizes which you won’t be needing. (Referring to the table of contents, it is the stuff at number 14)

    The latest sample theme is responsive, and it seems you don’t want it to be. Have you tried removing the media queries?

    Well at least now we all know :-) I have also preferred not to use custom header and keep everything where clients can’t destroy it, but i appreciate that sometimes it may be necessary to do it that way.

    Because i’ve been doing it my way so long (and from my own base child)  i didn’t even think to look for that line on the new child sample….and i never noticed the change in the framework.

    I guess the moral of this story is if you use a new child theme as a base, check it and rip out the bits you don’t need before you start doing any other mods :-)
