Hi, this is my first post ever, so bear with me here.
I've learned html and css although it's been a little while since I've done any coding. I have been asked by a client to create a blog and I suggested wordpress because I knew I needed to learn it. Anyways, maybe not the best idea without practicing first, but I did it and now I'm feeling a bit stuck. I have made all of the customization to this with a child theme and it is wordpress.org.
1. Moving the Sidebar Widgets next to the Slider
I currently have her blog up on my site for now at:
I have it pretty much looking the way I want, but in order to get the sidebar next to the slider I made it absolute positioning which totally threw off the responsiveness of the theme. In order to fix this for mobile viewing I overrided the media settings in the css.
2: Fixing the Responsiveness and Other Layout Issues
Still, the border and background image (white) is all messed up when viewing on mobile sites as well as when I go to one of the categories which I don't have content to yet and it shows nothing found, then I do a search and it throws off the border/background: http://www.bethparrattdesign.com/?s=listings&submit=Search
3. Other Tweaks Include the Spacing Top/Bottom of the Widget Categories
How can I change the spacing top and bottom between the social media icons which are built into the theme but still connect to the sidebar, and the text widget I used to add the navigation flag buttons?
I've searched for hours, days, weeks, and just feel stuck!
I just want to make sure I have this working right before I get it all finalized for her.
All of this is sample content and sample photos.
