I've Got the Button Blues

Hey fellow Genesis enthusiasts! I'm having some trouble with buttons rendering in blog posts. Can anyone help me figure out why? 

Take this post for example: http://dustn.tv/see-differently/

Near the bottom of the article I have a "download" button. Currently it's styled with the class I've created for the "more-link" because that's the only thing that seems to work.

I've created all the necessary CSS to make a unique style for a download button (I'm calling the class .dl-btn), but unfortunately when I add that class to the link, it just shows as a link rather than the button styling. Even when I try to use the theme's native button (base theme is Parallax) it doesn't work-- just resorts to a standard text link. 

Any ideas? Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Then, do something with it that no one else has done. Imagination is really the key. Being able to see33567733821534 SHARES …33567733821534 SHARES

Need a solution, looking to get away from Hostgator.

I apologize for this not being a strictly Genesis related question, but I consider Genesis users to have good judgement, and could use the benefit of your wisdom on this matter.

I've used Hostgator for about 8 years and until they were bought out, their services were awesome! Ever since the buyout I, as well as my clients have been experiencing extremely slow page loads, email issues and even sites not showing up at all. And it's not like these are rare occurrences. They are continual problems for most Hostgator users that I know.

I need to find a better solution for my clients who were using HG's Baby package with pretty much offered unlimited 'everything' for less than $10/month.

Thanks for your input on this!! :)

Okay, so I admit, I've used shared hosting for many years and am only now moving to dedicated WordPress hosting.  But I have a client right now who is considering SiteGround's Go Geek plan and also Pressable. 

http://pressable.com/

 I would really appreciate some input before giving her a definitive recommendation.

Dedicated WordPress hosting for 5 sites or Go Geek Plan with Site Ground? Their emails are hosted with Google apps. 

Anyone have personal experience -- would appreciate you sharing!

Question... what kind of themes do you feel are lacking for the Genesis framework?

Themes for Education learning. I would be glad to see more of those. And the hotel industry too.

If any of you have been tempted to start using #SCSS (but not #SASS ) in your stylings but didn't want to hassle setting the whole ruby thing setup, check out wp-scss.

I just installed the plugin, created two directories in my theme, one for the scss sources and one for the compiled css files.

That was it!   Then just started writting scss.

I will never (willingly) write straight CSS again!  Long live SCSS!!

How do you get the Genesis blog page to show the Page Title?

By default any pages set to the Blog template, do not show the page title.  We would like the page title to still show up.

Any ideas?

Lovely!

To be very picky, I'm not keen on the way you parrot exactly the title of the block into the blue read more >> area. It's uninteresting and looks as though you are short of things to say. I would mix the up with "Discover more about" "FInd out what" etc

If you want to keep them as they are, then I woudl experiment with right justifying the text in the Blue box. That might look more dynamic.

StudioPress documentation recommends the above to be changed to In order to add HTML5 support for Galleries and Captions, we shall change it to Before adding HTML5 support... Continue Reading

If you're in town for WordCamp Austin, join us for an informal Genesis gathering next Friday!

If you're headed to WCATX and love Genesis, let's start WordCamping a little early! Never been to to the Hangar Lounge, but it's centrally located on the south end of downtown.

Spread the word. Everyone welcome. Except Genesis haters. ;)

Can anyone help me with customising my search form? I want to add a <label></label> tag to the search text "Search this website..." to help accessibility but I'm not sure how to add this to the following code:

//* Customize search form input box text
add_filter( 'genesis_search_text', 'sp_search_text' );
function sp_search_text( $text ) {
return esc_attr( 'Search this website...' );
}

Many thanks for any help

I have found a brilliant plugin at  http://genesis-accessible.org/ that adds this label and skip links.

Real Estate Websites

I am doing some initial research regarding real estate websites built on Genesis and am interested to review an assortment to see what is being done.

I have briefly combed through the StudioPress 'Showcase' and found a few but that might be a bit time consuming.

If you have either built one or a few or run across any in your travels I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.

Thank you!
