John. thanks for the suggestions.
I've tried that CSS before. In fact, it's in the page now, but it doesn't work. Editing the Genesis 404.php may also be a solution. I didn't think there was such a file, but I was looking in the Minimum theme folder, not the Genesis theme folder.
I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

GJudy: Thank you. As a new member, I'm locked out of the old forum, so I really appreciate you checking this for me. I'll give it a shot.
John: I'm trying to remove the 404 in the H1 tag just above my image. It's not a major deal, but one of those little details that I'd like to clean up. With the big 404 in the image, the page title is a bit unnecessary.
December 14, 2012 at 8:59 pm in reply to: Minimum Theme Question #5344
I got a note back from Nick. You have to use at least one of the Home page widgets and the sidebar will disappear. I just tried it on my test site and it works.
To be honest, there was a site where I didn't want to use a widget, but also didn't want the sidebar. I guess you can't have it both ways. The widget is the trigger.
December 14, 2012 at 8:58 pm in reply to: Minimum Theme Primary Sidebar on Home Page – How To Remove from Home Page ONLY #5343
Apparently so. If you don't use the Home Page widget, the sidebar appears on the Home Page. Use at least one of them and there's no sidebar.
December 14, 2012 at 8:20 pm in reply to: How to Prevent Page Title Display on Single Page? #5333
Thanks. That one didn't show up in my searches. It looks like it removes all page titles, but I'll see if I can tweak it to just remove the one I want.
Really appreciate the help!
December 14, 2012 at 7:26 pm in reply to: How to Prevent Page Title Display on Single Page? #5325
Thanks. I looks like it should do it, but doesn't quite seem to work.
I'm trying to remove the title from my 404 error page (try http://test.beem.us/snot for example). I found the post number for my 404 page and replaced it in the line given on that topic and put it in my styles.css. Still get the page title, though.
December 14, 2012 at 10:20 am in reply to: My updated website using Minimum Theme, What do you think? #5221
I'm curious - which sign up form works better for you? The one in the theme at the top or the one at the bottom of each post?
December 13, 2012 at 10:31 am in reply to: RSS feed's not working #4981
I found my problem. It turned out to be some empty lines in the wp-config.php that caused my invalid RSS feed. You can't have anything outside of the <? ... ?> brackets. I had a couple of lines at the end of the file. Once I removed them, everything validated again.
That may not be your issue, but I thought I'd share.
December 13, 2012 at 9:19 am in reply to: RSS feed's not working #4968
I also had my feed stop validating on December 7th. It now fails on FeedValidator.org.
December 12, 2012 at 9:36 pm in reply to: Minimum Theme Question #4852
The good news is that you can achieve what you want. I have it on my site at http://williambeem.com. I'd tell you how to do it if I could remember how I did it. I'm working on another site with this theme and it doesn't seem to be working out that way.
December 12, 2012 at 7:10 pm in reply to: Minimum Theme Question #4824
If he goes into the Genesis Theme Settings, he can set the Default Layout to be a full page and his home page will show as he want - without the sidebar. The problem is that setting is global and changes the default for all pages & posts. What he wants is an exception to the Default Layout for the home page.
Of course, the Home Page isn't a WordPress Page, so there isn't any place to Edit the page and change the layout.
If you look at http://demo.studiopress.com/minimum/ as an example, it does exactly what he's requesting. No sidebar on the Home Page, but it exists on the post entries.
There are other aspects of the Demo that are inconsistent with the theme as delivered. For example, look at the style of the Page Numbers (e.g., 1, 2, Next Page) in the Demo, vs the "Older Posts" style we get with the code.
Basically, what's shown in the demo isn't described in the documentation.
December 8, 2012 at 12:43 pm in reply to: How to Change Maximum Width for Existing Posts #3865
Thanks, John. That works! The only exception is for photos with captions that still move over into the sidebar, but it's not due to the size of the image. I have another routine to eliminate the captions, so it's all good from here.
Again, many thanks. That's much better than having to touch all of those old posts manually.
December 1, 2012 at 9:20 am in reply to: What now in your opinion is the best SEO plugin? #2749
I've tried All in One, Platinum and Yoast. Each one can do the job, but I think Yoast does it best, particularly with the guidance it offers. I much prefer using a plugin than a theme for SEO, since it's easier to switch themes that way.
SEO Data Transporter can move SEO data from some themes and plugins, but it's probably best to find one you like and stick with it.

Nick: She's using the Solo theme from Zigzag Press
Inicole: I had a similar issue with the Minimum theme. The fix was to remove some code in the functions.php file regarding the featured image. It worked, too. Except that it also removed the image on my home page. I still have to go back and tweak it to do what I wanted and not kill my banner image.
November 28, 2012 at 6:21 pm in reply to: How to create more than one portfolio? #2185
I asked the same question of the support folks. Apparently you have to register a different custom post type to have more than one. This custom post type is Portfolio. You could register one for Fashion, Illustrations, Travel, etc.
Now as for how that's done, I have some reading to do. Perhaps others could answer the question.
November 25, 2012 at 11:05 am in reply to: Minimum Instructions #1570
Yes you did. I've had no problems with support. The help has been pleasant and useful. On a few occasions, I've come across issues that the support staff thought was in the documentation, but was missing.
As you mentioned, the community is a huge help That's why I want access to the old community forum information. It's a knowledge base that we can use to resolve issues immediately. When I submit a ticket, there's a notice warning me that support over weekends & holidays could date 24-48 hours for a reply. While that's understandable, it's an incredible roadblock compared to researching an answer that may already exist in the forum.
The only reason I can't access that knowledge is because I bought the product after a cut-off date for registration. Well, that's kind of lame, isn't it? Shouldn't all paying customers have access to the same resources? I sure think so.
November 24, 2012 at 5:51 pm in reply to: Minimum Instructions #1523
Does the old forum say anything about how to configure the Subscribe button? I ask because:
I don't see anything about it in the current instructions
I don't have access to the old forums
It's very unlikely I'll get a reply from Support over the weekend and I'd like to just get this resolved
Thanks for any help.
November 24, 2012 at 12:48 pm in reply to: What happened to all the info in the old forum? #1498
It may help improve this forum, but it means that new users, like me, don't get to research the wisdom contained in those old posts. Sometimes its better to do a little research before asking a question, but I guess that avenue isn't available now.
From my perspective, the priority of improving this forum should not be higher than the priority of providing resources for people to help themselves.
November 23, 2012 at 8:33 pm in reply to: How to Let Users Embed Photos from My Site? #1459
It's manual, but that's a good thing. It lets you decide what image and URL to use for the post. I'm guessing you couldn't do more than one embed per post, but I haven't gotten into it very far yet. It's quite easy to use.
That means I have a lot of old posts to touch again, but I think it's well worth the effort. You found exactly what I needed. Thanks!
November 23, 2012 at 8:14 pm in reply to: How to Let Users Embed Photos from My Site? #1452
Here's a post on my Test Site if anyone else is interested in how this plugin works. It creates a panel on the Post page for you to enter the image URL, where to link back, your site name & home page link - and also height & width dimensions (optional).
