    Hi Skandha,

    While not my favorite button, it solved that problem. The site has launched now at https://johndmaddinart.com  He is very happy with it except I am noticing one new problem.

    There are now enough items in the top navigation that on some screens the background grey for the links goes to a second line. This didn’t happen right away but sometimes the background is tall enough that it looks like it could hold three lines, and the page title becomes hidden. There is a possibility this is browser related but I’m not able to do a good test. Is there a fix for this (other than removing a link or two)?

    Thank you

    @Skandha the nameservers are now in the process of being reset. As soon as they resolve you will be able to see the website at https://johndmaddinart.com

    Thank you for your help.

    @Skandha, the buttons may have to wait until his domain registration issue is resolved. Here’s a temporary link. They don’t last long, but just in case: https://j1tef.skipdns.link

    It turned out the correct selector was .section-title. My mistake was to put the h2 in it. Problem solved.

    I think the buttons may be the last thing to do. It will be a great looking site when it’s done.

    Thank you

    Hi Skandha,

    This brings me back to where I started. Is this the correct selector for me to target?: h2.section-title

    Also, I ran into this after I submitted my last post but the tool made me wait.


    @skandha
    , I just discovered the buttons on the home page have more tricks. This is a battle of the buttons. Read all of this first because there are two different sets of buttons with different problems.  I only need one set and am not sure which is the better way to go.
    #1) I am putting content in the Featured section and found that the automatically generated Continue Reading buttons there have the same problem the buttons on the blog posts had. It looks like they should have the same code but clearly not.  https://tinyurl.com/y45ovq4w
    This is what is in place:
    a.readmore {
background-image: linear-gradient( rgb(217,81,6),rgb(153,58,26))!important;
}
#infinite-post-wrap .more-link {
width: 150px;
}
p.more-link {
background-image: linear-gradient( rgb(217,81,6),rgb(153,58,26))!important;
padding:auto 0 auto 3px;
border-radius: 5px;
text-align: center;
}
    #2) I decided to try shortening the excerpts manually because the Illustration/Dandelion wine box on the right actually has a text link which doesn’t work or show in the normal excerpt. With the shorter excerpt this link is removed but the buttons change. I could live with these if I could center them. I prefer the other buttons but suspect that fixing the text link issue would be more difficult.

    Is it possible to center these buttons? I tried and failed.
    Thank you

    Hi Skandha,

    A child theme is easy, but what is the CSS for the font change? I haven’t chosen the replacement but would like to have something more readable.

    Thank you

    @ Skandha, I’ve left reviews before but it’s been awhile so I’d be happy to do another.

    I do have one more question about this though. I’ve decided I’d like to change the font these heading are using and I’m getting some push back. When I add

    h2.section-title {
    font-family: “Whisper” !important;
    }

    with or without the important, the font does change, but not to anything like what I’m considering. What am I missing?

    Thank you

    These links don’t last very long… here’s another one:

    Hi Skandha,

    This update solved one problem but created another. It is now possible to change the title of the section but when I did this I discovered that the font had changed to the one used for the site title, except much larger and orange. This is not acceptable. The font should be able to stay the same as the other sections.

    Hi Skandha,

    The buttons are perfect now. 🙂

    How can I change the name of the Testimonials section?

    Thank you

    The notice was from Google. That’s all we know. I remember the “clickable elements too close together” was reported quite awhile ago but it was never resolved.

    Hi Skandha,

    Problem solved. I can’t find the error but it must be there because now it’s working, and perfect at 80px. Thanks for your help.

    I reinstated it. It still doesn’t work. As I’ve said, this used to work but stopped apparently after a theme update.

    Hi Skandha,

    That’s no help. In the customizer the Home page and archives are combined. We don’t want posts on the Home page but we do want to be able to have a sidebar for archive pages. How do we separate them?

    Thank you

    Hi Skandha,

    The Home page is static with no posts.

    Thank you

    Hi Skandha,

    I think my reply slipped between the cracks. This issue isn’t resolved yet, especially frustrating when something in an update appears to have negated my previous fix. Please take another look.

    Thank you

    This is a screenshot showing how the Social Icons widget acts differently depending upon which widget area it’s placed in. The sidebar one works fine with showing the social icons where information has been supplied in settings. The footer and bottom widgets have a dropdown for a menu which is not asked for in the sidebar. When the first works fine, I feel compelled to ask why it’s ok for the two to act differently. I’ve never seen a widget do this. Is it really going to require the social credentials to be added in two different locations? Please explain.

    Thank you

    Hi Skandha,

    Neither my code nor yours is having any effect on the position of the header text now. For the moment I’ve left it but commented out all of the code I’ve tried. The site is now public though so you can view it at SPC site.

    I hope you have another solution!
    Thank you

    Hi Skandha,

    I inherited this website which someone had started using Gutenberg and then abandoned. Then I switched the theme to High Responsive. I have used this theme before without having to use Gutenberg which I try to avoid at all times. All of the other pages use Classic. If I just clean out all of the inherited Home page Gutenberg content will there be any problems? I guess what I’m trying to figure out is if this is part of the theme, WooCommerce or Gutenberg.

    And is Gutenberg the key to the issues with the ‘select options’ buttons? Since that’s part of the cart it would point back to WooCommerce, except I’ve used Woo before but it didn’t have this sort of store setup.

    Thank you
