Hi, Great theme! I use the categories like blogs, how can I get the featured image to display above the excerpts when you are in the category?

Default-user

Great, done! and it worked except the images are off center, can I make them centered aligned (tried but it did work for me)? Thank you for your help!

Default-user

Where specifically do you put in loop-single.php? (also need to make sure it is centered aligned there as well). Thanks, that should be my last question.

Try putting it into a div with some class and style that class in style.css. Make it centered there. It should go before content in loop-single. Please log in with purchased account for more specific help, thanks for understanding :)

Hi, I purchased your theme through this account. I’m still trying to do 3 small things: Insert that line of code into the single loop php Make the featured images align in the center and the last thing I need to do is make the index page show excerpts instead of the whole post, is this possible? Thank you, apologies for now loggin in to the purchase account in the first place.

Thanks for doing this :) So in loop-single.php insert it before
< ?php the_content(); ? >
This is what to insert:
<div style="text-align:center">< ?php the_post_thumbnail(array(310,210, true)) ? ></div>

Please remove spaces after and before < and > .

I would suggest using read more tag, that can be found in editor or by inserting

<!--more-->
where you want text on index page to end.

Thank you!

Apparently I can’t reply to your comment above. It is disabled.

No It is not resolved in Safari v.5.1.

Looks a lot like this: http://ok.andys.at/A1RH and keeps jumbling as it rotates slides. This does not occur on Mobile Safri or Firefoix, and ….I don’t really care about IE and can’t bother to check. :)

I tried to install your theme using the directions and I got this instead:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare contact_form_parse() (previously declared in /home/content/15/8326015/html/wp-content/plugins/grunion-contact-form/grunion-contact-form.php:20) in /home/content/15/8326015/html/wp-content/themes/bigcity/grunion-contact-form/grunion-contact-form.php on line 37

Help? It’s crashed my entire site.

Hi,

Please delete grunion contact form from your wp-content/plugins folder.

Thanks

It worked! Thank you.

Also: I’ve tried to get rid of the logos in the header and footer. Do I upload a blank image or edit CSS ? I also can’t get a background to load and work as a background. Does it have to be certain size? I’ve used .png and .jpg.

Great theme, so far so good, easy to navigate and make my site organized. Thanks for the great support and help.

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi, yes, you can upload blank png images, if you do not want to edit code. Or you can set display:none in style.css

When uploading background make sure your url ends with image extension not attachment id.

Any ideas?

Hello. I’ve just purchased this theme but I didn’t succed with the installation. When I try to upload the zip file at the administrator page i get the following message:

“The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/resespan/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2011/09.”

Me again; I found a zipfile called just bigcity in the downloaded zipfile, which is called big-city-personal-and-blog-wordpress-theme. When i installed “bigcity” zipfile i succeded but the preview of the theme looks faulty compared to the preview on the site here.

There is a pdf file called Big_City_User_Guide in your download package :)

Thanks for quick help again. One more quickie…

Is it possible to edit and preview at the theme without going “live” with it? Or is the only way to edit it to have it activacted? Then all the site visitors just sees alot of kaos for a couple of hours.

MNKY
MNKY Author

Yes, you should activate it to edit. You can set it into a maintenance mode so users wil see a message, that site will be back soon. Or make a subdomain where to set up the theme.

Thanks

Hi.

Two of the blogs you feature on your Item Detail page, namely http://blog.iirp.edu/ and http://uberding.net/ have a recent post slider with photo + title and text. I have looked at their source code, and in the Wrapper part, they both have the same code, which includes a long Java Script and clean syntax for each slide.

How can I do the same thing, get that slider with photo AND text with link ?

I’m guessing I have to modify the code of a page (and maybe some other files), but I don’t know which one(s), and paste the JavaScript they’re using somewhere … However, there are other differences: at the moment, my source code doesn’t look anything like the one of these websites, although I am currently using a header slider (for example, after the JavaScript, they have different div id/classes than my website, id=”rps”, class=”window” and class=”slider” in that order, whereas I have none of these and have a lot of clutter instead)

So, how do I do it ?

Hi, there is no need for any coding, all is done in WP dashboard. You just need to go to Appearance->Post slider and set it to show both thumbnail and excerpt. Also set excerpt word count, slider speed, height and you are done. When you will make a post and set featured image for it, it will be displayed on the slider as you described.

Thanks

Hi, love the theme… 2 quick questions!

1. I wanted to know how to add the “Back to Top” Button at the bottom of theme?

2. And how, if possible can I instead of having the author page come up when it is click, have it goto the contact page or email. Is there a shortcode or setting I can edit?

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi, thank you!

1. To top button appears automatically when you scroll down.

2. You will have to modify functions.php file starting on line 697 you will find two sections beginning with meta-prep meta-prep-author and there will be four occurrences of a href=”” . Put there your link to the page with author info.

Thanks

Thanks for the help… For the 1st question… it seems to be missing. Maybe something went wrong.

See if there is any plugin causing this first or if there are any server errors, you can check it in your browser’s console, usually pressing F12 on PC. Thanks

Hi,

I apologize if this has already been asked and answered, but i didnt see it and so thought i would go ahead and ask.

1. I would like one big posts slider (thumbnail and excerpt) on the homepage with no other posts showing except what the slider displays. can that be done?

2. i have not been successful getting the posts slider to appear on any page, only the header slider.

I am sure there is a setting i am overlooking. I appreciate your help.

Hi,

Post slider appears on blog page, category and tag pages. If you want it to appear on other template, you should change part of the first line of template php file to call header_blog.php .

Make sure you have set Slider height, Total Posts , number of posts per slide, slider speed and excerpt word count in Post slider settings.

If you need further help feel free to email us via profile with access details.

Hi there! The Theme is great and the support has been amazing! Thank you! I am setting up the social widget and wanted to add Google Plus 1 to it but am not sure how to go about it? Is there an easy way to add in? Thank you!

Hey, thank you :) You just have to find an icon on internet, then upload it to your media library or where you want and use it as custom icon. There are fields for six custom services available.

Thanks, I tried that but Google +1 is a Java script (see:http://www.google.com/webmasters/+1/button/) and cannot be added by simply putting in the URL . Any advice? Thx!

If you want it to be a button where you can click +1 to like it, then you can post it into a text widget or somewhere in the content.

Coming back to the recent post slider, I have filled the correct parameters (you said earlier : “Appearance->Post slider and set it to show both thumbnail and excerpt. Also set excerpt word count, slider speed, height and you are done.”), put a featured image for my post(s), disabled header slider. But I now have a thin white line instead of a recent post slider. I guess this is because in my index.php file in my theme folder, I have <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . ’/header.php’); ?>

If that is what’s causing the thin white line instead of a proper recent post slider on my blog, what do I put instead of header.php ?

PS : I really appreciate you taking the time to answer all of our questions, I know it can be a bit of a pain sometimes answering questions from Wordpress beginners…

Hi, by default slider will appear on blog. If you want it to appear on template with header you should change it to header_blog.php

On the live preview page, there is a mini-slider/gallery which slides diff pics automatically (where is says ‘With beautiful pictures). Is this achieved with shortcodes?

Hi, yes it is content slider and three posts that have just images in them.

One more Question.

I use this Code to fix the Background, but it dosn’t work. Is there another way!?

#background_pattern{top:0px; bottom:0px; left:0px; right:0px; padding-top:25px; min-height:100%; background:; background-attachment:fixed !important;}

It will work, just upload background as second level image, as this is a code for it. Thanks

Regarding the recent_post_slider, I have changed header.php to header_blog.php in my index.php file of my big city folder, but it still doesn’t work, I still have a white line instead of my recent post slider (for which I have set the correct parameters, as you’ve told me to a bit earlier).

When I look at my source code, I have the correct syntax (I compared to your example sites that I mentionned earlier), except that I miss the line with the slide tags.

So, how do I make my recent post slides appear ?

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.

Hi, index.php by default has header_blog so maybe we are talking about different things here. You can contact us via profile directly and we will help you with setup. Will do it tomorrow morning.
