    Yea, I have no idea what was happening, but it wasn’t serving the correct logo to mobile user-agents. It’s resolved now.

    Thanks David,

    Looks like a priority of 5 did the trick!

    Cheers!

    Hello David,

    Thank you for the quick response! That executes genesis_do_nav() in the <header> element, but does it at the bottom. I need this to execute before anything else in the header. Meaning before the site title/header image and header right, but still within the n<head> element.

    Does that make sense?

    Thanks

    Thanks for your swift response. I added the home text and text-indent and the result wasn’t what you predicted :)

    Check out the site and see for yourself, please.

    Thank you Andrea, that fixed part of it, but, there is still an issue with it not being clickable. Somehow the clickable space of the link is being pushed down to below the button. Try to click the home button on my site and you’ll see what I mean.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Can you give use a little more background information? What Operating System are you using? What version of Chrome (click the gear > “About Google Chrome” item) are you using? Can you send a screenshot? Can you try it in another “Webkit” browser (Safari)?

    Thanks

    Someone private replied to me and linked to a post that showed me exactly what needed to be done. I’m pulling what I need to from the theme’s functions.php file:

    remove_action( 'genesis_entry_header', 'genesis_do_post_title' );
    remove_action( 'genesis_entry_header', 'genesis_entry_header_markup_open', 5 );
    remove_action( 'genesis_entry_header', 'genesis_entry_header_markup_close', 15 );

    Add this to genesis_before_content_sidebar_wrap in the Genesis Simple Hooks Plugin:

    <?php
    if( is_singular() ) {
    genesis_entry_header_markup_open();
    genesis_do_post_title();
    genesis_entry_header_markup_close();
    }
    ?>

    Make sure you check “execute php”.

    Let me know if this works, if not I can help you with some other tricks I know.

    I’ll let you know how it works!

    Thank you

    in reply to: How do I make header background full width? #45359

    Zach Russell

    It’s quite a bit of CSS work but you’re going to have to have to make some major style changes to the site — essentially making the wrap full width then styling child elements to be a fixed (or percentage width). I recently did this with my site — but it’s not very responsive yet. Look at how http://youneedfat.com/ does it (using firebug or chrome developer tools, I prefer chrome).

    For the background pattern, you should then take the image as a pattern (only a few pixels wide) and do a repeat-x attribute to it when the image is called in the CSS for it to stretch the full width of the header. I would then make the logo a transparent PNG file and place it on top of the header. There is a lot of styling that will need to be redone as it styles down as well.

     

    Hope this helps!

    Nazz,

     

    I understand your question and it is a mixture between basic SEO and technical SEO. There isn’t really any other way to fix your probother their than writing a meta description.  technical SEP and WordPress development is what I do for a living, and if I saw Amy white hat way for you to get around it I would tell you. There is no reason why you shouldn’t write a meta description for every indexable page on your site, even if you have to update it when you update the page, it’s only 155 characters. You should also note that Google makes about 500 algorithm changes a year so that Is probably why it worked before and doesn’t now.

    Nazz,

    Your prolem isn’t with you needing to hide text, it’s that you aren’t using what is called a Meta Description tag. Please Read Moz’s Post on Meta Desciptions for more info on the matter. That whole guide is integral for anyone who isn’t completely familiar with SEO. In the post/page editor you will be able to make a meta description in the Genesis SEO settings. Wait a few days to a week and you should be golden. When you don’t use a meta description Google Can use the text from the page to make one.

    Hope this helps
