The correct answer will depend on which theme you are using. I am also new to the Genesis framework but with the Metro theme at least, there is a widget that has an option you speak of. It is the Genesis featured widget. It allows you to set up feature articles on a page and customize how the feature article will look. One of the options allows you to set the post title and give it numerical limit to the amount of characters shown. Other options include what symbols you want to use to show the cut off. i.e. (...) and whether or not you want your title to link to the article. This is a widget plug-in so it should work in other themes. Hope that helps.

Yeah after a lot of tinkering I figured out that if you are not working with the default theme, you have to adjust the css within whatever color scheme you are working with and I have done a pretty good job of getting things where I like them. Now that you have provided this php code, I'm sitting in a good spot, and not just for this project but for whatever project I decide to use this theme with going forward.
Thank you. We can close this thread if you like. I'll be starting a new one. I'm having a problem with the H2 font not looking like the font in the demo.
Thank you for the great help.

After taking the time to dig into the css I have figured out where my adjustments can be made. I am currently adjusting the colors of metro red safely in a simple css option. I am liking the direction and if the new theme color turns out how I want, I'm curious if there is a way to implement the new option into the Genesis theme settings and label it. This way if my client wants to go back to the default Metro red, he could. is there a way to do that?
Other than that, this thread could be labeled resolved.

I am not using caching plug-ins or cloud sharing. I have seen immediate changes with some CSS properties while no changes with others. It may be that I'm not targeting the right properties in the CSS. I'm trying to change the font color inside the Metro Title element. I am using the Metro red. I was looking to change the white font inside the Red box. After inspecting the element. I tried to track the correct CSS property.
The css inspector says it is
.metro-pro-red .site-title abut that isn't it and nothing in the Title section is working either.

It took me a few days to find out the right css to adjust things but I do have it working now and the link you provided has helped a lot. My problem now however, is that when I work on other css it doesn't ever show the changes. Is there something I am doing wrong?

Thank you Anitic. I had already started with another plug-in that I like and now I'm just trying to apply some custom CSS to remove some of the padding. I still am going to look at this too but I appreciate your help. If I can get the padding issue fixed, I'll check this as resolved.
