    Thanks for your help on this Danny.

    That’s what I get for trying to satisfy Google’s PageSpeed monster… more headaches than it’s worth.

    Yes. No problem.

    I think I have this figured out now. This seems to work and allows the header image to reduce properly for tablets and mobile:

    .fl-page-header-container {
    display: block;
    width: 100%;
    height: auto;
    padding: 0px;

    }

    One other thing, in a “duh” moment, I neglected to allow for paddings when determining the width of the actual image.

    I’m getting there. But I’ve got about 30 pixels of white space on the left and right side. The theme is 1100px wide, and so is the header graphic. I’m using this CSS as recommended in the above thread:

    /** To resize the logo larger- change values if needed **/

    @media (min-width: 1100px) {
    /* Change width of the logo container */
    .fl-page-header-primary .row > div:first-child {
    width: 100%;
    }
    /* Change width of the nav container (or the social icons area) */
    .fl-page-header-primary .row > div:last-child {
    width: 100%;
    }
    }

    I figure I’m missing something simple, but it’s eluding me today. Here’s the site:

    Hi Jun,

    Thanks. I did try that, but the logo does not fit the whole area. Since it’s a boxed layout, I have a header area of 1100x175px. I thought as a logo, it would fit the entire area using the centered nav layout, but that didn’t work for me. Do I need to fix that with CSS?

    Thanks Ben. That worked for me.

    One thing I noticed. If I make a change in the stylesheet on the server, and then refresh the page, the customizer doesn’t pick up the changes. So it appears that I have to temporarily change the the preset to something else, then come back to the custom preset for the changes to appear. If I’m doing some testing for style changes, will I have to do that for each style change/edit?

    No problem. I can make the change manually for now.

    Hi Ben,

    I’m still having this problem. Has this not been fixed in the newest version yet? I downloaded the most recent version and I see that the issue is still occurring. As you said, it’s ok on the blog page sidebar, but if I create any new pages, the sidebar gets whacked when I choose a custom width.

    Perhaps I misunderstood when you said above that it was “fixed on our end”. Just wanted to clarify if this is still an unresolved issue in the current version.

    Thanks,

    Actually, I figured this out after all.

    I just needed to adjust his style:

    .fl-page-header-container

    One thing I noticed regarding this issue:

    I downloaded and installed BB on a new install and was getting the same issues with the sidebar. I made the theme.less adjustment, then I went back to the customizer, switched the sidebar back to large, then switched it back to custom again. The custom sidebar issue was fixed after that.

    Does the new downloads of the BB theme include the theme.less fix?

    Thanks,

    Dairrell

    Sure. That’s not a problem. I have the site backed up anyway.

    I’m having the same problem on another install, on a client’s site that doesn’t have many plugins, so it doesn’t seem to be restricted to just a problem on my site. I just installed the BB plugin and theme on the client’s site this morning, with fresh downloads of each, and I’m still getting the same issue.

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for taking a look.

    I mentioned in my original post that I had disabled/removed the custom css as one of my tests, but that didn’t change anything. Perhaps you missed that part of my post.

    Thanks Ben.

    For now, I’ll just use the default sidebar settings.

    I don’t know if this is related, but I’m also having a problem with the font size and line height slide adjuster. In Safari (Mac vs. 9.0.2) I can adjust the font size with the slider, but cannot manually enter a value in the provided text field. The line height slider doesn’t appear to working at all, though I notice movement in the page. In Chrome (Mac vs 49.0), pretty much the same issues. When I manually enter a value, I click outside the box and it seems to change temporarily. If I try to change it back to a lower value manually, it keeps reverting to the higher value I just set. I can move the slider to make the adjustment though on the font size.

    Thanks Justin. I’ll just create the child theme as you suggested.

    This is just for my own wish list, but I’d like to see the default template for pages to be the one with the sidebar, or at least have a way in the settings to make that one the default template. I know you mentioned swapping the full width and sidebar templates, but if I’m using BB for multiple customers, I have to do that for every install.

    Thanks,

    Hi Ozan,

    First, thanks for all of the hard work on the new beta. I appreciate the new improvements.

    Regarding the slider to adjust full width and sidebar width, the keyboard left and right are not working for me on a Mac. I too would vote for a field next to the slider for more accurate adjustments.

    I’d also like to see a text field next to the logo (and other image elements) that would allow a full path to an image rather than uploading from the WP media center.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your input on this.

    I agree with the points you made and have been using the child theme stylesheet for a number of years. But there’s been so much focus lately on the customizer that I thought I’d throw it out there for some opinions.

    I don’t really see the need for per-page CSS either. I’d rather have all of my styles in one location and target the page ID when needed.

    I’m not yet a big fan of the customizer. I preferred the theme panels instead, at least on the better-known premium themes. I find the customizer buggy with Safari on sites with a lot of plugins, so it seems there’s work to do on that yet.

    Thanks Ben, for the reply.

    I can try that, but I wouldn’t think it’s a plugin since the customizer works with Firefox and Chrome with the same plugins enabled.

    I’m no PHP guru, and I’d be lying if I understood everything I do when messing with PHP. But I did figure out the problem for displaying the proper post type for each search.

    It turned out to be a simple fix (after hours of working with it).

    In the single.php file, I changed this line of code:

    <?php get_template_part(‘content’, ‘single’); ?>

    to this:

    <?php get_template_part( ‘content’, get_post_type() ); ?>

    Now if a keyword search (like “wordpress”) shows up in the results under more than one post type, you can click on each result and be taken to the post/page, and if you have customized the post type template/page, it will show up with the proper customizations, rather than the plain BB default file.

    Hopefully that will help someone else running into the same issue.

    Thanks KC. That worked perfectly.

    I’ve worked a long time with Woothemes Canvas, but found their Woo theme code a bit annoying. BB has clean code templates that makes it easier for me to customize at the code level and I don’t need extra plugins to do simple things like move the nav menu to the right of the logo. I did like Canvas’ simple slider tool that allows easy adjustment of the site width, but your CSS for adjusting the site width was easy too.

    I also like the fact that much of your CSS begins with “fl” to help differentiate from other plugin CSS to help avoid conflicts. Nicely done.

    I appreciate your good service and quick response.
