    Just tried again on the Themes > Updates page, and this time it kept my name and key. Not sure why it did something this time, but I tried using a re-generated key after 24 hours.

    Is this the only way to get update notices? I’d like something to appear within WP, or an email sent to me about the new versions.

    D’oh!

    Ok – now I get it. Something was overriding my attempts to change it.

    I was looking at the exact places you pointed out, just didn’t notice the use of !important

    One of those things you can’t see after looking too closely at it for too long LOL

    duh, forgot to give you the links to the pages I’m talking about.

    Again, look at this on the iPhone and in portrait/narrow mode to see the problem. This is what triggers the jump menu, narrow view and on the iPhone.

    This is the Arcadian theme, and look great

    This is the CSS I’ve got, and it’s close but the background of the jump menu doesn’t match.

    OK – got my staging site built (created a subdomain, and then cloned my live site to there to work on). Then copying all my changes back to the live site.

    Fixed a few more things. Then completed all the tweaks in the WP admin pages.

    Totally up to date!

    Now that I’m re-reading the update page, maybe I’m confusing the theme version with the framework (Bootstrap) version.

    If v2.0.5 is the current version of the theme, then I have the right theme.

    Now I just have to find a way to create a staging area on the site, to migrate the small site that I have to the current theme.

    Any advice on how to create a directory on my site to work on the the new version of the theme so it not be seen by the public?

    I’ve done this once before, but it was two years ago. I think I created /stage and then change the log in page to point to the new theme.

    BTW – I also use the child theme

    Hmm, I just found this page:

    http://support.themeblvd.com/updating-to-arcadian-v2-0/

    Before I spend the day or two updating the theme, is there anything else I need to know?

    thanks – that seems to have fixed it.

    Can you tell me what this change does?

    I see you are removing this: “Hack the appearance submenu a to get “Widget Areas” to * show up just below “Widgets””

    But looking at the before/after, I don’t see any difference. Must be something I’m not even using?

    That’s what I’m talking about LOL

    No wonder I couldn’t find it.

    Thanks!

    Sorry, that was hard to read. What I was trying to say:

    What I cannot find is how to change what I see on the iPad as I touch a menu.

    It highlights DIFFERENTLY than the hover. The mysterious behavior is when I’m touching the menu items. This is what I want to change.

    Once I lift off the screen, it changes to the highlight setting I find in hover and the current menu.

    I’m trying to modify the look of the “touch” behaviour. Where is this defined?

    Sorry Jason, I can’t make sense of your two answers.

    I’ve been stumped by this for days, and at my wits end. Nothing I’ve added to this block ever shows up on my iPad.

    #access li a:hover, #access li a:active { … }

    What I’m seeing in the iPad doesn’t happen on a desktop. So I can’t even attempt to debug this on the desktop world. It’s something I see only in a touch screen. I do see the current menu hilighting and I do see the hover as well. Those I can change.

    What I cannot change is what I find how to change is what I see on the iPad when I touch a menu. It highlights DIFFERENTLY than the hover. It this mysterious behavior while I’m touching the menu. Then when I lift off the screen, it changes to the highlight setting. I’m trying to modify the “touch” behaviour. Where is this defined?

    Lastly, I’d love to know how to “Chrome’s inspector over Firebug” on my iPad. I’m trying to see what’s happening on the iPad.

    The only thing I know about is the Javascript-bookmark hack to get Firebug lite to show up in Safari on the iPad, or using the Safari iPad to Safari desktop remote debugging. Neither of those let me “see” hover or active.

    style="max-width:50%"

    Ah – that’s the magic I was looking for 😉

    Now that I see how this works, I think a rule of thirds works best. It’s 33% for images.

    As for the logo, you pointed out a flaw in what I was doing. Now that I’ve dug into it, I think the right answer is to change the custom.css to this below. This also corrects the issue in the mobile page, and triggers the proper scaling.

    #branding #header_content .container {max-width: none; padding: 6px 0px; }

    Thanks for the tips, and proving that your framework is awesome.

    I guess my real question was if I can just add this scaffolding and only add the specific classes I want to over-ride.

    I think the answer is yes, and it’s an easy thing for me to verify.

    I just wanted to check that this is the right approach, and to add this into my custom.css file. I think you answer it 😉

    I’m still working on many things, but have a staging site up.

    This page has a photo, which looks fine on a desktop but I think it doesn’t scale down enough while on my iPhone. Try it in landscape mode. The text along the left side of the column is too narrow. I’d rather see it as something like 50/50 of text to image in the column.

    reekes.net/stage/home

    Then look at the logo on an iPhone. While in landscape mode it’s good, but in portrait it’s getting cropped. Note that this logo design is meant to butt against the left edge. I’m still working on that area of the CSS. I’m about to start adjusting the CSS for mobile too. (I asked a related question about this in another thread.)

    Yeah, I’ve got it working. Thanks.

    I was thinking something like this below would work, where special-font is defined in the Theme Options panel. Being able to use this identifier means I can always change the font in Options and not have to also hard code it in the CSS.

    blockquote { font-family: special-font; }
