The other thread was closed, so I need to expand upon the Q’s in a new post, sorry.
With respect to the changing of sizes, for example, if I increase the base width to 1152, an increase of exactly 20%, does that mean that EVERY other section needs to be increased by that exact amount to function properly?
Example: Increase #inner to 1152 ( 20%), but what if I actually want to leave #home-featured-1/2 at 320px.
Or if I want to decrease #home-featured-sidebar from 220px to 130px.
Or if I want to increase .content-sidebar from 632px to 840px, which is actually greater than 20%.
Do these other mods then preclude the theme from rendering properly in a responsive manner? Because that’s what happened.
Apologies if these are inane questions, but it’s my first tackle of responsive themes, and I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but it’s not working as such.

Yes that is correct, if you widen the main width, you’ll have to adjust all of the widths inside of it or they will look weird. In some cases you may not have to if the width is a percentage sometimes, because 50% (for example) will still be 50% regardless of the width. I should have mentioned that earlier.
For the second question: It should all work the same as long as you adjust to the new width you’re adding.
To be honest, if you just want to have your theme 1152px wide like Epik, and all of the latest SP themes, then you may not have to do anything if you don’t mind waiting for me to do it. In around a week or so, I’ll be updating some of my themes to be 1152px wide and I’ll also be updating everything else to my latest coding standards. It will basically be a massive upgrade where I will completely redesign the entire theme from scratch based on the latest Genesis 1.9.2.April 23, 2013 at 2:55 am #4126mitchcanCustomer
Wow. That’s Awesome. Will Optimal be one of the themes to go to the 1152 framework? This is exactly what I am struggling with now. I have been rushing to implement Optimal as a new theme prior to a product launch May 1,with lots of forced learning along the way. 🙂
If I finish basic implementation of the new theme, will I be adversely affected by the redesign when I update?
I look forward to your updates. Really glad to have stumbled upon your work, and I’ll happily buy Epik in the near future for another project.

Yes it will be on the 1152 framework just like all of the latest themes. I’ll be redesigning from scratch based on the latest Genesis 1.9.2 Sample Theme….I’ll be stripping it down first, removing a lot of the design (in the sample theme) and then I’ll be adding in all of the Optimal code. Can’t give an exact date, but hopefully soon. I’ve been super busy lately, mainly in the forums, so its hard to get things done like I used to.
