I purchased the new Expose theme and made a few very minor edits locally (like fonts and such). This is what it looked like locally:
And this is what it looked like when I activated it on the live blog:
Obviously, it's not active now, because it's horrible. 🙂 Has anyone had experience like this before? Any ideas of what is going wrong?http://www.littlevictorian.com
Did you check the widget areas after you activated? Sometimes if I switch from one Genesis theme to another, all the former sidebar widgets go into the Header Right widget area and make everything look crazy. Also, if there is any kind of caching in place (a plugin, a CDN, Cloudflare, etc.) be sure to empty caches as soon as you change the theme. Finally, check the Genesis theme settings (specifically the header and footer scripts area toward the bottom) to be sure there are no CSS rules in there. I've seen people add CSS in that area, which would act on the new child theme regardless of what's in the stylesheet.
Oh, and if the site owner has Jetpack and its custom CSS option activated, check there (Appearance > Custom CSS) to be sure that's empty as well.
Thanks Andrea! It turns out I hadn't updated Genesis to 2.0.1 yet. Oops. It all works now.
But I will keep all that in mind, because I've had header thing happen on other sites before, and didn't realize it was the widgets.
