I've given up on this and switched to a more suitable theme.
Themes often come with a choice of site layouts. A boxed theme occupies a fixed width; a fluid or full layout extends (stretches) to the maximum screen width.
I chose a boxed layout last week for one site because a user had complained to my client about the header image in a full width layout somehow overflowing the screen edges. He's happy now, apparently.
Did that solution work for you?
Only Pro versions are responsive.
I doubt it's Googlebot, but it does sound like a spambot. They're prolific at the moment. I had a spambot attack on one of my sites a week or two ago. It's not just resources that get consumed but your site's access is adversely affected too.
If you have access to cPanel on your host, first check your resource usage (CPU, RAM, virtual memory) under Statistics. If these are high, look at the recent activity log (depending on your cPanel version, Visitors in Metrics or Latest Visitors in Logs). If you see a particular tight range of IP addresses (mine were 184.108.40.206-138) during a concentrated time period, make a note of them. I would check with a DNS lookup site to make sure it's not your host or you or local residents. (I don't know how your site is used, but it doesn't seem to have a login page, so you can't check against a member list.)
To block the range, use the IP blocker (IP Address Deny Manager in Security). That will stop the bots from accessing your site completely.
Hope that helps.
Have you tried it on an Android phone? Perhaps the iPhone has a preview function.
On the iPhone, does it continue to do this on a second call to the site after viewing another site?October 2, 2016 at 4:51 pm in reply to: Do I have to install a child theme before I can install plugins? #194140
Thanks, Victor. Yes, Genesis, not Gemini.
A couple of minutes ago I installed and activated a child theme. That caused a Genesis 2.4 welcome screen to appear. After that, I was able to activate all the plugins.
My conclusion is that 2.4 doesn't "take" until there's a child theme installed.
Thanks for your help, Sandee. A non-profit should fit the bill.
