Hello again,

I am having trouble with my blog page and setting up an RSS feed :(

This is a test blog page I set up in Settings/Reading as the Posts Page http://theflowproject.la/a-news-blog-test/

When I view the page all I see besides the header and footer, is a bunch of random full-wide paragraphs of Latin text that I didn’t put there (there is no text/image Content in the admin), and the ACTIVATE EDITOR button is not visible either. Where and why does the Latin come from and how can I format this page with a Blog Feed layout?

Ultimately, I want to set up an RSS feed from the blog page so I can set up an RSS-Email newsletter in Mailchimp, but that doesn’t seem to be working either. When I test the RSS in the Widgets on this page http://theflowproject.la/a-news-blog-test/feed it returns an error message to the effect of… “Error – RSS must be down. Try again later.”

Alternatively, when I set the RSS to the main site URL www.theflowproject.la/feed the RSS displays a single comment from the “Hello World! by Mr WordPress” demo content post. Where would the RSS find that comment on the home page, and why does a comment post on the RSS?

You can see the Side Bar here with the above RSS from the home page. Its a regular page, not set to the Posts Page, that I was able to format with the Editor. http://theflowproject.la/news-2/

Finally, here is another page I set up to layout the news as I want it to look http://theflowproject.la/news-2/another-news-feed-layout/ I thought that I could set up the RSS from this page, but it returned thee same error as above as well.

Its the Latin text and no ACTIVATE EDITOR button that is stumping me the most. Once I can get a Blog Feed onto the Posts Page, I think the RSS will work. Right?

Your help is appreciated!

Cheers! Paulynn

OMG I figured it out! Almost totally fed up and I decided to try this:

http://theflowproject.la/category/news/feed/

I really want the feed to feed only from Category News anyway… but hadn’t thought that far down the road when trying to just get a successful feed in the first place.

Adding /feed/ or /posts-page/?feed=rss2 didn’t work

Thought I’d share in case others have similar issue.

Thanks for sharing! Awesome :)

Hey Tom,

Great looking theme! I am about to purchase this one. I had a quick question for you. I am switching from an older theme and I was wondering if before I switch, I should delete my old plug-ins in case something isn’t compatible with yours? I don’t mind deleting anything except I would like to Keep Yoast.

The other thing is that I noticed on some of your other themes, like Zonya, you advertise that there is automatic child theme support or something along those lines. Is this true for this theme as well?

Thanks for your help! my old site is www.mixedbychrisscott.com if that helps.

tommusrhodus

Hey there :)

Certainly disable your plugins before switching (Yoast is fine though) :)

Slowave is child theme compatible too! Just install this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/orbisius-child-theme-creator/

And generate yourself one :)

Cheers!

Hello Again,

My RSS feed of my Posts seem to be displaying the Comments of only the posts with comments. Strange.

I set up a test RSS feed using the Widgets and set it to http://theflowproject.la/feed/

Here is what the RSS Widget displays http://theflowproject.la/news-2/ See “test thecurrent RSS” in the side bar.

I wonder why it is doing that? Any thoughts?

Ultimately, I’d like to get the RSS figured out so I can link it to Mailchimp.

Cheers! Paulynn

tommusrhodus

Answered your other comment.

Hello Tom,

Quick question, I think… Where do I set up the links for the “META – SINGLE – Show Social Sharing Buttons?” on the blog pages?

=) Thanks! Paulynn

tommusrhodus

The buttons are just sharing buttons, the account linked depends on the person visiting, for instance if I click on your site, it opens my twitter account if I’m logged in and allows my to share your page to my followers.

Hey there,

Top level links are just anything added to your menu that aren’t set as sub-menus, sorry if I caused any confusion.

Hello Tom!

Having a great time using Slowave so much so one of my clients wants to test it on another site she is doing. =)

So, I have installed Slowave on her other site to test it, and the Customize/Typography menu only lets me control the type for the Paragraph and Header fonts. I do not see choices for the Footer, links, etc. They are just not there.

Where could they have gone? =)

The site was on a Custom Theme she had built a few years ago. Could that be making a difference?

Thanks! Paulynn

ps. i am pretty sure we’ll be moving her other site to Slowave too.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Those extra controls come in on the demo data :)

Cheers!

Hi again Tom,

Another question on the first site I have been working on with Slowave – Flowproject.

I am getting a 404 on all the project post pages ie http://flowproject.la/project-view/sunnynook-river-park/

I checked the permalinks and they are correct. It seems like everything else is normal, so I am stumped. I do not recall having made any changes in some days, maybe a week, and today found the 404s.

And then I tried to add a new project. And it gives me a 404 right away.

Not sure where to start looking. Your thoughts?

Thanks, Paulynn

I just read a comment you posted in another thread for someone else… “

“The theme recommends “post-name”, the issue you’re having with 404s is not due to the theme, it’s due to URL rewriting not working on your server :) (To test switch to a default theme, you’ll see the same thing, also note proper URLs on my demo)

Drop a ticket with your web host support team, they will be able to help you easily.”

So…. I’ll ask my web host team about it. Thanks! ;-)

Hi Tom,

Do you know of any lightbox popup plugins that you’d recommend to use with Slowave blog feed? My client wants to have a popup that displays the featured image and text content, categories, tags, and probably share links. Any suggestions would be fantastic!

Cheers! Paulynn

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I can’t think of a lightbox that has all those features, but a plugin won’t do the job by itself, you’ll need to modify the theme to tie it in properly with the blog feed.
