So i just updated to Gen 2.3 this morning, and for some odd reason, all column classes [.one-half, .one-third, .first etc] have been taken out of the framework.
Was this intentional, and if so, why on earth was it taken out??
Also, why was it not in the change log?June 17, 2016 at 4:59 am #187730DebsParticipant
Has this been confirmed? Will wait to update...this is HUGE!June 17, 2016 at 5:11 am #187731
I cant find anything about them being taken out anywhere on the studiopress site, but they definitely are not in the style sheets anywhere in the genesis framework!June 17, 2016 at 5:42 am #187732DebsParticipant
Thanks for pointing this out...will tread carefully!June 17, 2016 at 7:37 am #187734
the column classes have been taken out of the Genesis parent theme / framework.
I don't know why it was not included in the changelog but it was intentional.
As long as you are using a child theme, you won't know the difference.
If you are not using a child theme, you definitely should start using one
You can always open a ticket with the official Studiopress support at my.studiopress.com/help to voice your concerns.

Of course im using a child theme! Thats wordpress web dev 101! But the Genesis framework style sheet is hooked in through the functions so i could use the structural classes when needed!
Do you know why they were taken out? Im puzzled why they would take out some core structural css classes - they were so useful!June 17, 2016 at 8:29 am #187742
There is an effort going on to remove styling from the parent theme / framework, because the styling should happen in the child theme.
All Studiopress child themes include the column classes.
You will have to copy the column classes into your child theme if they are not included.

I only use the framework, i dont use any of the themes as the framework basically only includes the structural css and the responsive code to go with it, which is all i want apart from the ease of use when it comes to functions/hooks. There is no styling to remove, apart from some link css and padding/margins here and there, but thats overwritten in the child theme in about 5 seconds.
Soooo do you know why they were removed or not?June 17, 2016 at 9:10 am #187745

That´s confusing 😉
Only Studiopress knows why it´s doing what it´s doing until they make an official statement.
Simplifying the framework, discouraging the use of the parent theme / framework (see the new admin notice if you are only using the parent theme / framework), encouraging the use of child themes,... take your pick.

Haa i suppose. It is a child of the framework though, and its a theme. Custom genesis theme is perhaps less confusing! (Y)
Fair enough. cheers!June 17, 2016 at 5:15 pm #187768Victor FontModerator
This has been an ongoing discussion on the GenesisWP Facebook page. This is a quote m Rice:
StudioPress does not recommend that you use the parent stylesheet as anything other than sample code to copy into your own child theme. None of our child themes do this, and none of our documentation recommends this. If you do it, and we ever change the framework's CSS (which we have done in the past), it will break your site's styles.
