I agree, +1 for CS Templates.
Thanks for all the pointers guys. I have figured it out. I appreciate you taking your time to answer and give me some tips where to look.
Yes I want each post to have a big number next to the title, sorry for not being clear enough.
1 Post Title A
2 Post Title B
3 Post Title C
As far as the code, this is from the theme author and I’m just trying to modify it to fit my needs for this one Cat.
Thanks all, ET
I already have a custom cat template, category-11.php so this is unique just for this one category.
The picture I attached explains what I mean.
1 Post title
2 Post Title again
3 Post Title more
If you view the pic you can get an idea, i’ve tried about 100 combinations from the Codex to no avail.
Have a theme from TF and trying to get a Post Counter next to the post title on a specific category, but I cannot seem to get it. Looking for any ideas. here is what it does now http://tinypic.com/r/30njgci/5
Anyone have any ideas how I can get them to number correct next to the post title?
Thanks, ETHere is the code
<?php global $post_idx;?> <?php $index = '1';?> <?php $breadcrumbs = ct_show_index_post_breadcrumbs('post') ? 'yes' : 'no';?> <?php $category = get_the_category(); ?> <?php $subTitle = ct_get_index_post_subtitle('post');?> <?php query_posts('meta_key=MRS_Rating&orderby=meta_value&order=DESC');?> <?php if (have_posts()) : ?> <?php the_post(); ?> <?php $pageTitle = $category->cat_name;?> <?php $key="MRS_Rating"; get_post_meta($post->ID, $key, true); ?> <?php $post_idx = $wp_query->current_post + 1;?> <?php //rewind_posts(); ?> <?php endif; ?> <?php if($pageTitle || $breadcrumbs == "yes"):?> <?php echo do_shortcode('[title_row header="' . $pageTitle . '" breadcrumbs="' . $breadcrumbs . '"]')?> <?php endif;?> <div class="row-fluid"><div class="span12 "> <div class="lineBox right"> <div class="inner"><div class="menu" /> </div> </div> </div></div> <div class="row-fluid"> <?php if (is_404()): ?><div class="span9"><?php else: ?><div class="<?php ct_blog_index_class()?>"><?php endif;?> <div class="blogContainer"> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <div class="pull-left ranking"><?php echo $post_idx;?></div> <?php $post_idx = $wp_query->current_post + 1;?> <?php endwhile; ?> <?php //endwhile; ?> <?php get_template_part('templates/content', get_post($post) ? get_post_format() : false); $post_idx++;?> </div> </div> <?php if (ct_use_blog_index_sidebar()): ?> <div class="<?php roots_sidebar_class(); ?>"> <?php get_template_part('templates/sidebar'); ?> </div> <?php endif;?> </div> </div>
I have contacted the author and have had no replies in over a month. (great support)
Basically, every single posts page, whether its a category like “news” or a tag page like “blue sky” or an archive of “archive of 2011”, Every single page that lists the posts all have the same exact H1 tag title
So lets say you make a menu item for the category “news”. I would think that when you click it, the top h1 tag says “NEWS” and then you get all the “news” posts.
but instead every page says “Blog” or whatever the ONE title I can enter into the admin panel.
At this point i’ve had to spend hours and hours of my own time figuring out their framework and making my own Category, Tag. php files and having them display the appropriate h1 page title.
Even if not for SEO, for simplicity of user navigation, if I click ‘Events’ I don’t expect the page h1 title to be “Blog”.
Thanks for the replies guys.
I guess maybe I’m thinking that such basic functionality like a Page title should be different depending on the page your on would be included in all themes.
I’m sure its great for SEO to have a standard H1 tag across all pages saying “Blog”.
Looks like I will have to be more diligent in who I buy themes from.
Thanks for replying.
Just curious but if a theme is approved on TF, does it require that it have the standard php templates for Author, Tags, Category, Archives?
I purchased a theme that does not have those and every single page has ONE page title.
So if your on category “news” or “events” or “archives for 2011”, every one of those pages has the same exact Title that you set in the admin panel, lets say “blog”.
I’m confused how such basic WP functionality is missing and got approved?
Yea, I haven’t found one but thought I would ask before I dig too far into customizing a theme in case someone did something like this already and I just missed it.
