    Hi Gary (thanks for reopening so i can answer)

    I was previously using 1.8.2, but since i start all my projects with a base child that i created i never noticed. I started this project with the included genesis-sample which had the header support line in, and didn’t think to remove it – now that i have done so, all is good.

    Thanks :-)

    Bill thanks for the clarification. I have removed the custom header support and all is now good!

    Normally i choose “image logo” and then set a background for .header-image #title a …. what is the preferred method now?

    I think what Nick means is to create an image to use for the background to the box. At the moment you have background set to #222 and opacity set to 0.6.

    What you want to do is create an image (can be small because it will repeat) and have that image be transparent. You can create a transparent image in photoshop/fireworks etc. Then use the image instead of the colour #222 so;

    background: url(images/my60percent.png) repeat;

    You can then get rid of your opacity setting or set it to 1 (depending if you have opacity declared elsewhere)

    You would first need to register a new sidebar area in your functions.php file – something like this:

    EDIT: Sorry i am having real issues posting code here without the format getting all screwed-up :-(

    Then you will need to add that area to wherever you want it. To achieve this you will either need to add something to your home.php if you have one (and you want it on your homepage) or use some conditional logic in your function.php file.
    When i add several areas to my homepage i usually do it in 3 stages…adding the actions, creating helper functions to test if the sidebars are active, and the actual functions to output the content, so:

    EDIT: Sorry i am having real issues posting code here without the format getting all screwed-up :-(

    You don’t always need to use a helper function, but that’s the way i do it. You may want to take a look at NickTheGeek’s website for some great tutorials on this kind of stuff…

    Don’t know about “best” practice, but for me…

    If i’m building a site for myself, i’ll often hard-code it into home.php (or whatever page template). If it’s a site for a client, i normally pull-in a page (which i no-index) so the client can easily change the content if they want to.

    I noticed the 1152 grid system – have you abandoned the 1140 grid now?

    At the moment i would go with WooCommerce – i have been happy with this solution so far (although the recent jump in extension pricing is making me a bit jittery)

    One to watch imho would be Marketpress from the wpmudev guys – if this evolves it may be a serious contender…

    It should be fairly straightforward to alter the size of the sidebar in any theme – if you have a specific theme in mind, i would be happy to take a look for you…

    Hi,

    The body background isn’t tiling properly for me on FF. I don’t really like the background image anyway – looks like it’s just about to rain…and that depresses me :-(

    Other than that, it looks very nice :-)
