    Used Chrome Developer tools to tweak the CSS

    Check with your host first before you buy it, that they comply with the required settings.

    BackupBuddy have a technical requirements page, which I sent to my host.

    My host didn’t like one of the settings that had to be enabled so I never went with BackupBuddy.

    The settings may be fine with your host, but best to check.

    Just played around with your CSS and got the two elements to align horizontally.

    I’ll post CSS tomorrow.

    I do my backups manually.

    Theme files via FTP.

    Database via phpMyAdmin using Cpanel.

    Never found a plugin that did both that I could trust.

    Not a long job and if you only add content once a week you only have to backup once a week.

    Hi lianam
    Looks as though you changed them to 13px and they look so much better.

    Great job.

    Hi
    I looked at your theme using the developer tools in chrome.
    You can check with developer tools ore firebug if you use firefox.

    This is the CSS for the titles in your sidebar…

    .widget-area h4 {
    color: #888;
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-weight: bold;
    margin: 0 0 15px;
    padding: 0;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    }

    You have to change the font size from 11px to whatever you want in your stylesheet.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Amber

    My homepage was set up using the Genesis Extender plugin and setting up the wigdet areas just takes a couple of clicks.

    The widget areas were then styled with custom CSS.

    The Extender plugin is not a free plugin, but that’s how I customise client homepages, it’s quick and keeps costs down.

     

    @David Decker is a Genesis dev and he would code a solution, which does take time for those not so experienced as David.

    Hope you find your solution and look forward to visiting your site when it is complete.

    Keith

    Take a look at this post of mine and watch the video – see if this is what you are trying to achieve.

    “Yeah, it’s funny because even though I myself can hard code all the bits that Extender does for me, I still prefer to have it done for me.”

    Same thing when I’m fine tuning CSS – it saves me time, makes it quicker and easier to see results, and I actually enjoy using the plugin.

    The great big bonus for a non PHP guy like me is that I can customise any Genesis child theme homepage. with just a few clicks and then hit the custom CSS function to style it – or copy and paste the CSS from another project.

    Like I said, I use it on all my sites and all my client sites!

    Hi Amber

    Sounds as though you are trying to customise your homepage and also have a blog page.

    Default homepage for Minimum 2.0 theme just shows posts in order.

    Are you looking to do what I’ve done… http://www.wmwebdesign.co.uk/

    If you are I’ll explain how I did it.

    If there is a concern about clients deactivating the Extender plugin then maybe a warning could be displayed when the plugin is deactivated…

    “Warning – deactivating this plugin may cause problems with the layout and appearance of your website.

    Do you want to continue?”

    The wording can be refined, but that would be a simple solution.

    Hi everyone

    Lively discussion going on here and since I use the Genesis extender plugin on all my sites and all my  client sites, I thought I’d add my two pennies worth – I’m from the UK.

    I run a small website design business and deal mainly with local businesses who want a great looking site at a price they can afford.

    The genesis child themes (I bought the Pro Plus package) allow me to give them a great looking site and the Genesis extender plugin allows me to give them a customised homepage and make changes to the CSS.

    I have no PHP so being able to produce a customised homepage using the Extender, is a real lifesaver for me.

    I also love using the Custom CSS function to play with the CSS whilst actually being on the page i.e. I don’t have to FTP new info to my stylesheet and check for results. I see results in real time on the actual page.

    Learning how to use the plugin is a doddle – Eric Hamm has produced a series of fabulous videos and he answers any queries you have in the forum.

    Bottom line?

    If you use Genesis child themes and would like to be able to customise them quickly and easily – then the Extender is the plugin for you.

    I’ve written a couple of articles on the Extender, which you may like to read.

    Hope you enjoy them.
