stock level > 0

I am trying to have the sidebar area have a green background and white text like this wireframe.


Beta page

Why does the green box appear above all text?

I am using a widget for the sidebar.  Here is the code in the widget

<span class="greenbox-locations">
<h2>CCS Sioux City Plant 1</h2>
2900 Murray Street
Sioux City, IA 51111
(712) 279-0918

Plant Manager
(712) 279-0918 xXXX

Regional Director
(712) 279-8000 xXXX</span>

<strong>MAP GOES HERE</strong>

Open in new window

Here is css
.greenbox-locations { 
    background-color: #016633; 
  padding:5px 30px;

Open in new window

trying to get map to resize as page viewport gets smaller.
Any idea why this two column page is not responsive?

What am I missing?  I need to make mouseover text black.  The button color is white and so is the text so you cannot view button name.  I tried to use inspector but could not find what I needed to modify because when I highlight button and then click inspector the button is no longer highlighted. This is a studio press theme using a genesis framework.


I added this code to simple custom css but it has no effect
.genesis-nav-menu  a:hover {
color: #000;
background-color: #016633;

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

I have a Wordpress Loop that Generates names from a query.  However, sometimes the name is repeated.  I only want to show the name once.  Is there anyway to limit this?

  $args = array(
                    'posts_per_page' => -1,
                    'post_type' => 'post',
                    'category_name' => $alias,
                    'meta_key'	=> 'Athlete Name',
                $wp_query = new WP_Query($args);
                        <li class="show-all">
                        <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
                                $key_name = get_post_custom_values($key = 'Athlete Name');
                                $keyname = $key_name[0];

                                <!--  START Custom Player Menu  --> 

                                <li class="<?php echo $keyname; ?>">
                                    <?php echo $keyname; ?>
                                <!--  END Custom Player Menu  -->

So if that list generates a list of 10 names and John Doe appears twice, I only want that name to appear once. Is it Group BY and how do you add that into a Wordpress Query?

Hi, Client wants something like this: https://www.fireeye.com/security-as-a-service/assessment.html

So questions are asked, after an answer is selected, text appears, and at the end the person taking the quiz fills in a form to receive their assessment and a whitepaper. Alternatively, the survey could just redirect at the end to a form page.

I know there are lots of quiz and survey plugins for wordpress, do you know of any that are this customizable? Thanks!
Wordpress design
With technology evolving as fast as its rate of consumption, creating just the right website can pose quite a challenge in the context of keeping up with the latest updates. If you have a hard time deciding about the basics, here are advantages and disadvantages of WordPress and Coding in HTML.

I have built a small wordpress widget that floats in the bottom right hand corner of my client's website(s), so that their users can click it to make a payment to them... which simply redirects the user to my payment platform / website where my customer has an account.

FLOW - widget sits on clientwebsite.com and when they click it, the customer is brought to mysplink.com/abc (their payment profile on splink)

I need to be able to track how many users land on mysplink.com from a widget that sits on another site.

I was thinking of using something like mysplink.com/abc/ref=widget-abc and then i can view that in Google Analytics?

01 - would this approach be the best way to do this?

02 - any other advice on approaches would be greatly appreciated

Thank you in advance for your help.
Hi Experts,

Is there WP plugin that would give backend users more RTF options for posts and pages like font color, font size, font face, etc.?
I add an item to the cart on [url="http://jessechong.net/"]Jesse Chong[/url]but the item isn't taking.

I proceed w/ the checkout process and despite the formatting issues with buttons not showing and all that it appears to be working. then it keeps going in a circle and never gets to the payment page. The payment setup looks to be setup correctly. Thanks for any help with this.

I run a site at ColorWerx.net that displays the research I have done for the past 20+ years in collecting official color information for all sports teams throughout history. Pro and College.

This information is stored in a series of relational DBs...I store all the information I can for specific color sets (RGB, CMYK, Lab, Formula Ink mixes, etc.), and use it to cross-reference to databases for collegiate and pro franchises.

For a LONG time, the actual color information I've displayed has been in the form of running a report (admittedly, I'm still using MS Access. I know, I know.) and using SnagIt to grab an image to use as the display. Here's an example:

Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB/NL): 1998-2006
This example only displays Hex/HTML and RGB information; most teams and leagues don't want their specific Pantone information displayed on the site due to potential copyright issues, so I restrict what is displayed.

Obviously, this is a huge time-waster; I have wanted to replace this method for years.

Currently, my site uses WordPress; what I would like to do is to create a WP ShortCode that will allow me to display this information using generated swatch images utilizing CSS and PHP coding. However, I'm relatively new at this and am not exactly sure how to go about doing it.

I found a college branding site that uses CSS to create swatch boxes very similar to what I want to do:

UMass Amherst Brand Guide

I found the references to the 'pantone-box' elements within the CSS:

We keep getting this message when we are on a SPECIFIC page in wordpress.  

This is the page in question it happens to:  

We do not get error on any other page in wordpress.  Site seems to work fine.  I just cannot edit this page at all.  Even the opening text, "To search for World War I and II...." is locked out.

We talked to plugin developer and they were of no help.  My programmer in another office cannot duplicate.  The plugin is wp data table.  I use firefox.  I believe it also happens on chrome.

Any idea how to fix?

Stupid question.  I built this site awhile ago.  Now we are getting close to going live.

I thought I was using time.ly all in one calendar plugin.  Yet, when I try to add an event.  It doesn't display and when I go and disable the plugin, the calendar still is online.  Can someone tell me what plugin was used for this page.   I went to buildwith.com and it does display the all-in-one
