    I'd say it's your cache, I don't even see footer widgets, or the proper css when I view source.

    I redid it. Ran WP Super Cache. And now it shows everything on my side. I went to my other laptop which is hardly ever used to access http://roundhousetalk.com and it comes up clean. Should be good (?) I hope. Zeaks, just one more thing. How can I change my footer background to color #960014 and my font to white? That should get me done. I am backing up the files tonight so I can have a fresh backup with the new theme. Thanks.

    Zeaks, I know I tied you up a lot yesterday, but can you help me on the footer color above? Also, I use PRESS THIS to create posts from external sites. How do you automatically create an excerpt for a post that has something like "Read more" or "Continue reading" with a link to the original article? I tried to register for your site but got hung up in the registration using the username jaydokie.

    Thanks a ton for the code posted above to create the footer widgets.

    It all works great. I have one question though.

    This line is in the .css snippet:
    @media screen and (min-width: 600px) {

    And there seems to be a loose curly bracket a few lines below it also.
    From this page http://pastebin.com/jQHRzr8R

    Are these intended? To me something seems wrong, but I just don't know enough.

    I don't see anything wrong with it so I think you mean how there's more than 1 { }

    Anything inside the @media screen and (min-width: 600px) { } targets devices or browsers greater than 600px, it needs to have a starting { and an ending } with regular CSS in between so yeah you'll see double closing brackets. (if that's what you mean)

    @media screen and (min-width: 600px) { <- opening for @media
         .widget { <- opening bracket for widget class
            margin-right: 3.7%;
            width: 30.85%;
        } <- closing bracket for widget class
    } <- closing bracket for @media

    Twenty Twelve is a mobile first theme, meaning it was designed for mobile devices first, then using media queries designed for desktops and larger screens, so there's a lot of @media calls.

    The .ie conditional classes are not within @media because IE7 and 8 don't understand media queries.

    Hi Zeaks

    this is exactly what i want to do, but after following your advice to the letter (yes, really) my site went straight to badly formatted text and grey background @_@

    this seems to happen when i tweak the child theme too much. Any guesses what i'm doing wrong. In the meantime i deleted functions/footer and took out the css, all back to normal.

    thanks ahead

    Without seeing it and viewing your code, it's impossible to tell what was wrong. It could be something as simple as a missing close tag.

    I created a post about this last night, try it out, if you're having trouble feel free to leave a comment. http://zeaks.org/tutorials/twenty-twelve-footer-widgets-tutorial/

    thank you. my impatience to solve, i found this post


    which solved it great. thanks so much for replying with more info.


    sorry Andrew, not quite up on the thread etiquette yet. I wish there was a way to search within a specific plugin support forum. (maybe there is and i don't know it yet)!
