Thanks so much! By 'converted to mobile' I mean I finally updated to Lifestyle Pro from pre Genesis Lifestyle (dragged my feet b/c I had a lot of customizations).
Yes, I have no idea how that error got there on line one, glad to know it could be the plugin.
Thanks Victor, my host recommended W3 since I got shut down for high CPU (in addition to legit traffic, I get a lot of snoopers and it is kind of futile to keep on top if it). Is there another cache plugin that plays better with Genesis?September 14, 2015 at 5:12 pm in reply to: uh oh! Problems after updating Genesis. Did my programmer edit wrong files? #165508
Thank you Victor, that's awesome. Seems I have a lot of work to do. Now if any pros want to send me an estimate to get the customizations in the right place, send me a line!September 12, 2015 at 11:41 am in reply to: uh oh! Problems after updating Genesis.

Thanks Victor. This is bad b/c the website is a main source of my modest income. He actually started on this in July and I wondered why he was taking longer than even me to do this stuff, I figured he just had a ton of other work.
I was going to look under the hood before paying the final installment but got busy because my site was shut down for the first time due to high CPU usage. When I investigated, I couldn't find the problem -- I was looking for bot attacks and insecure plugins, I guess now it seems it could have been a coding problem.September 12, 2015 at 9:59 am in reply to: uh oh!

Thanks for clearing that up Victor, that's what I thought, but he's the professional so I assumed he knew this. I didn't realize I needed to explain parent/child themes.
Now why would he customize the widget? Is that good practice?August 19, 2015 at 2:26 pm in reply to: Please Critique my minimal design for my portfolio :) #162899
Okay it took a long time to load and just showed a blank page, so i thought that was the joke.
Now it came up -- looks good! May want to edit the copy a bit and looks like there is overlapping css on the portfolio such as on this page: http://mindfulwebdesigner.com/portfolio/philadelphia-writers-workshop/August 19, 2015 at 2:20 pm in reply to: Please Critique my minimal design for my portfolio :) #162898
haha awesome! Very minimalist!July 24, 2015 at 12:05 pm in reply to: Hired a developer and now confused how it's suppose to look #160324
Thanks Moody -- that helps a lot!
The first one I checked didn't seem to turn out too well!
or the second one: http://mobiletest.me/htc_one_emulator/?u=http://wander-argentina.org
You did pick up on something, in learning how to delegate tasks -- it seems that if something goes wrong, it requires the work one is trying to avoid in the first place to figure out what's going on!
Thanks, seems there is still work to do.July 22, 2015 at 7:00 pm in reply to: Hired a developer and now confused how it's suppose to look #160165
Thanks for your first message. I got a notice from google that I needed to go mobile on my websites, but had too much stuff to do to investigate much or do it myself, as I would like.
Now that I look at the demo, I see it doesn't come out of the box with those elements. I just thought intuitively it would be similar to the previous two Lifestyle themes I worked with, which did.
I suppose part of my problem is that I don't have a mobile device, and am in a developing country -- no one I know has an iPhone -- so I can't check the work. There is a bit of a disconnect for me on how new themes are designed to function on a small device and how it looks on a laptop as a consequence.July 22, 2015 at 6:29 pm in reply to: Hired a developer and now confused how it's suppose to look #160159
Thanks for your answer. I work the same way, that's why I asked, but I thought the best practices may have changed with Genesis.
To answer your question, I requested that the site look similar to the old site, but I noticed that out-of-the-box the new mobile responsive themes look quite different. The test site for my other site looks like this:
To my eye, the above looks more serious, organized and less mommy-bloggish (mom blogs are cool, I'm just going for a more informational site). From looking at other websites though, I suspect that my subjective website tastes may be outdated or that there are too many elements to load well on mobile devices. (As I mentioned, with no smart phone, I'm pretty removed from the user experience, although it's 40% of my traffic!)
I'm pretty sure I had hardcoded the FB comment section using the code they give you w/ FB developers. Hope I didn't lose that.
The crux of my problem is that I hired a guy to customize the site on a per project basis, but aside from fixing the header, I don't have a good idea of how much work he put in and I don't want to be too demanding, although it looks funky to me now.
I'm confused why for instance there is no 'today's date', or the background grid lines. Doesn't the theme come w/ date and gridlines out of the box?
Did he do customizations I didn't request, or -it crossed my mind after the page broke- that he may not have worked on a parent/child theme before and maybe some of the css got overridden?
Thanks!July 22, 2015 at 8:45 am in reply to: Error website at developers.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/ #160096
I got the same or similar error, with this code in red:
<main class="content" role="main" itemprop="mainContentOfPage" itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://schema.org/Blog"><div class="breadcrumb">You are here: Home</div><div class="home-top widget-area"><section id="dfcg-widget-2" class="widget dfcg"><div class="widget-wrap"><div id="dfcg-widget">
So I'd like this information too.
Ropa de entrecasa, ja ja. Great looking site!
Since I'm also in Buenos Aires, I'll bookmark your site.
