    First, can you supply a link to the site?

    Now here’s the thing about IE – MS refuses to accept that they aren’t back in the 90’s and no longer dominate the development of technology; with that said, I still pay attention to IE.

    Here’s the problem – you need to look at the version of IE you are using (pay attention to MS supporting that version) because MS isn’t even standard between it’s own versions (9 is almost usable, 8 , 7 are ok, 6 forget about it – no ROI on the conversion Time X Cost) . Long and short of it is this. Which version of IE and is it a supported browser (example IE 9 isn’t available on XP). If you want to support older versions, best solution is to custom code a style sheet just for ie (also pay attention to compatability view vs regular view).

    If you are using IE 9, search on css for IE 9 and you will find some items aren’t supported that are in all other major browsers.

    BTW just so you know, I hate MACs, did tech support for them for over a decade and user friendly is only as good as the user – A.K.A. my response isn’t anti MS.

    I haven’t played with forums in a while, but integration isn’t a “Genesis” issue so much as a WordPress – BBPress issue.

    Thanks for the response Nick, my next question was if you were using BBPress – but you answered that already..

    I pretty much always use the same themes, so not positive on this one but..

    Try adding bottom margin or clear to #home h4 or #home “widget class” h4

    widget class where widget is the name of the home left (varies from theme to theme)

    Decrease #content width in teh CSS by the amount you increase #content padding width

    Meant margin not padding there, but no edit link so I couldn’t remove from earlier post

    Decrease #content width in teh CSS by the amount you increase #content padding width. Or you could just reduce content width as the float is set to left.

    Example:

    #content {
    float: left;
    padding: 10px 0 20px;
    width: 420px;
    }

    Possible Change:

    #content {
    float: left;
    padding: 10px 10px 20px 0;
    width: 410px;
    }

    Remove from home.php and first widget from functions.php

    You need to adjust alignment of your post image, try adding a top-margin to your .attachment-thumbnail class

    Failure to remove brackets will most likely result in a fatal error

    /** Add custom field above post title */
    add_action( ‘genesis_before_post_title’, ‘luscious_post_image’, 8 );
    function luscious_post_image() {

    if ( is_page() )
    return;

    if ( $image = genesis_get_image( ‘format=url&size=post-photo’ ) ) {
    printf( ‘<a href=”%s” rel=”bookmark”><img class=”post-photo” src=”%s” alt=”%s” /></a>’, get_permalink(), $image, the_title_attribute( ‘echo=0′ ) );
    }

    }

    I believe that’s what you want to remove. Instead of commenting it out, try cutting it. Just make certain to get the entire snippet.

    All ( and { will be paired with their opposites.

    Did you fix? Looks ok to me, unless I’m not understanding the description of what isn’t working.

    unless you are talking about the Kohls advert ?

    For the PayPal stuff, I think you need to get the plugin (included free in your GF license), but once you play with Gravity Forms, you will ask yourself why you ever tried forms with WP any other way – one of the few times you will run across truth in advertising with point and click.

    I’m kinda hoping the development team won’t rush to shut down the old forums for that very reason. Until the new forums really get going, there are a lot of answers that can be found in the old forums (for example: Yesterday I used a link from the old forums to answer a question in the new forums – because the answer was already written out).

    The clients always right when it comes to the design of their website, even if it turns your stomach :-)

    Go back to nicks site and copy the clean code again, make certain you copy the entire block and aren’t cutting anything off. Also make certain when pasting into functions you aren’t breaking any existing elements.

    Paste into notepad or simple text to ensure your code is clean
