Something wonky is going on with my Genesis Framework. Although the site I have set up is clearly pulling in the child theme (Beautiful Pro), the design is all wrong. I have selected the default layout with the right sidebar, and yet the content text spans from one edge of the screen to the other and dumps all the sidebar content below posts. Here is the site I have set up: http://schools.sd42.ca/mmegoertz/
As a note, I am running this on a MUI. I was able to set up genesis themes without a problem in the past, but suddenly something shifted (possibly after an IT update), and no matter what child theme I apply, the formatting is not there.
I have been able to resolve this problem with other Genesis child themes by going to a site I had set up with the same child theme in the past (before the wonkiness began), then copying and pasting my customized CSS from that site into the unedited style sheet of the latest installation. However, since I haven't used the Beautiful Pro theme in the past, this is not an option this time, and I actually need to identify the underlying issue.

Can anyone help?November 11, 2014 at 10:53 am #131196
You renamed your child theme folder, did you also modify the theme name in the functions file?

Thanks so much for your reply!
This was my first question, so I troubleshooted by deleting the first installation and re-uploading the child theme in its original - unaltered - format. No change.
Since that made no difference, I re-uploaded and activated the renamed child theme. I did modify the theme name in the functions file.November 12, 2014 at 6:19 pm #131355bandjMember
I don't see the style below for your .wrap and .content-sidebar-wrap like on the demo
margin: 0 auto;

You're right, bandj: it isn't applied. But it's there in the CSS file:
margin: 0 auto;

unfortunately my next step would be to go through the css and look for a missed ; or curly bracket.November 13, 2014 at 10:53 am #131432

Except I haven't touched the code in the CSS file. It's straight out of the box. And I'm seeing the same issue when I try applying other child themes.
The only thing that occurs to me is that this may be a compatibility issue. We're several iterations of WordPress behind at this point (3.5.1, I believe) and have scheduled an upgrade for next week. We'll see if that fixes the problem. Thanks again,
