Thanks, Victor. I didn't post one earlier as I was actively changing CSS on my own. Here it is, back to its original state.
Should I update the latest Genesis version manually by just FTPing all the new files to the server, leaving the old version in place and active? Just concerned that things have changed so much that perhaps I should do the interim update first and then see if it'll let me jump to the newest?
Hi Anita. You're correct - I plan on the theme "breaking" and replacing it with a newer one. Should I just deactivate the old child theme and enable Genesis as primary, then manually update it incrementally? Or delete Genesis and reinstall from scratch?
Hi Victor, thanks for your reply.
I don't know if those older themes are XHTML-based. I purchased them from StudioPress. Some names are Pixel Happy, Pretty Young Thing and Back Country, all dating back at least 6+ years, some probably 10 years old now.
So basically it sounds as if I should warn customers that if they update, as I've taught them to always do, things are going to look wonky and they're going to need my help to bail them out. Have a feeling there are going to be some unhappy customers!
Thanks for your input. That makes sense!

Thanks, Victor, will do. Didn't realize that. I did see a post from a few weeks ago on a WP forum about this but didn't want to crosspost. I'll check out that forum again.November 11, 2013 at 12:52 pm in reply to: How to make entire header clickable in Back Country #72336
Thanks very much, Susan - I appreciate the link.
Thanks for adding your thoughts above. I resized all my pics first (because I like control over sharpening them, etc.) to 450 x 450 pixels and tried to set up the size of the slider box to fit them. The height seemed ok... but when I experimented with making the height taller, it didn't change the size. It also pulled in the captions on the right overlaying my images as the default. I would think the default would be smart enough not to? I had to fiddle with the percentage width for those and that setting seemed to take inside the dashboard... but adjusting the overall width did not until I got into the CSS.
Helpful tip for you StudioPress folks - since your documentation on the WordPress site talks about the PHP I referenced above being needed for child themes, that isn't mentioned on your main site here where you talk about the easy setup for this plug-in... and since most of use child themes if we need to use the PHP to override the dashboard settings, that's key.
Adding to my post above, I just discovered if I add this code below to my child theme's stylesheet, I can change the size, but I am still confused as to why the size settings in the dashboard don't work, and if the PHP code above is necessary to add to the child theme's functions.php file or if I can delete that and just use the dashboard settings?
