IE 9 is the first version to support border-radius, so if in IE8 or compatibility mode expect squared edges. Also, expect a lot of extra work for anything in compatibility mode. My rule of thumb is that if Microsoft no longer supports it, i don’t code for it.
You may also want top proof in Google Chrome and Apple Safari – both are webkit, but display slightly different in some cases.
Each site is unique, but this data from W3 Schools can be helpful.
You can make the themes do nearly anything you can think of. This should help get you started … but it’s not for sidebar, you would use primary sidebar widget for that. this will give you a “home widget” = to width of content area. I used it in eleven40 to get more control of presentation.
The new version of Lifestyle doesn’t use the home bottom like the old Church / Lifestyle themes did. If you view your theme in the theme editor, you will see that the home.php doesn’t call for a home bottom and that the functions.php doesn’t either.November 21, 2012 at 9:29 pm in reply to: Looking for feedback / suggestions on my Surf / Kayak Studio Press News Blog #1235
Be certain to preview sites on larger monitors/ higher resolutions.. Your target market will be a few die hards but more likely people with disposable incomes (means they can afford higher end computers/monitors).
I’m at 1900 X 1200 and I think it probably doesn’t look the way you want it to.
Someone may have said this already, but on the second one (http://imageinkcustoms.com) I’d set wrap margin for right/left to auto so the site centers. On large screens like mine looks odd left aligned.
The mobile responsive attributes are near the bottom of the css.
I choose to hide items that don’t work with the theme in mobile designs or, use text instead of a graphic. It’s really an issue of trial and error, unless you can provide a specific example.
Depending on exactly what you are trying to do, you don’t need to add extra widgets areas to the code (perhaps last one #7 if you want it full width).
Just add two text widgets to each widget container and you have the first 6.
If you don’t care about the width, add a 3rd text widget to the widget area 1 and you have seven widget boxes.
If you want the 7th widget area full width, that’s a different story.November 21, 2012 at 6:06 pm in reply to: When to use forums -vs- when to use support request? #1213November 21, 2012 at 5:41 pm in reply to: When to use forums -vs- when to use support request? #1208
Thanks – Just wasn’t certain how you were approaching the new system based on the marketing emails..
Not positive on this, as still learning something new everyday….
top right bottom left example: 2px 4px 2px 4px;
top/bottom right/left example: 2px 4px;
try: auto 20px (where 20 is right /left spacing)
Thanks for the suggestion, but problem is – applying background to inner isn’t doing anything. I’ve searched for conflicts, but can’t find any. Even apply a simple background color doesn’t work; I’ve also tried it using !important.
Check in other browsers also..
In addition to changing height for #footer and #nav/#menu (depending on theme) you also need to adjust margin and padding top compensate for the change in height.
I also tried adding structural support to functions and defining #inner .wrap to have a background and still nothing.
