Hi! I’ve just downloaded theme, but installation couldn’t be completed because “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet” – where can I get stylesheet?

Dannci

Hello,

you need to unzip downloaded main file fist. Theme package to install (blogdrops.zip) is in it.

Thank you

just one more wuick question. How would i color the background of “preformatted” text differently? Gray or something like that to make it obvious it is “preformatted” text like programming code or sth.? Thanks in advance.

Dannci

Hello,

you can use e.g. ‘highlight’ shoertcode

Hi dannci again. hmm i would like to find a solution that would highlight all of the “preformatted” text – past and future. I would like it to be done automatically for all preformatted text without any manual adding of shortcode. thanks

Dannci

Hi, can you send me link with ‘preformatted text’ example? I’ll give you css code…

Hi, this is the example post (still on old theme since i am not yet done migrating) http://www.geekpeek.net/openvpn-server-on-centos/

As you can see, i want the

something

text to be highlighted so it is clear this is the command line command. I hope i gave you enough info.

Thanks in advance, Mitch

Hi, I should have checked this before purchase but forgot so will ask now anyway. There doesn’t seem to be anywhere to enter custom css. Could you consider adding this in an update so that any modifications made aren’t written over in upgrades please. Alternatively, can a child theme be used? I tried adding one but it didn’t work. Kris

Dannci

Hello,

yes, them is ‘child theme’ ready: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

you can also use style-custom.css in Appearance > Editor

Thank you

Hi Dannci,

Great theme, well done.

I am a designer so have limited code knowledge, however, I have rolled out a few different themes.

My issues are:

1. I want the site to be static with just a few pages of content. Am I able to link a post to a standard page? This is so I can have a post on the homepage that links to a main menu item.

2. On the homepage I want the following. – One image/post in the main banner – Three different posts in the carousel that link to main menu pages – Just one banner in the sidebar that links to a main menu page Is this possible?

If you can solve this for me, I will be a happy camper!

Regards David

Dannci

Hello

no, you cannot link from classic posts to pages, posts can be linked to pots only. You can select featured categories for slider and carousel in Admin panel > Sliders & Featured …

Hi Dannci,

A styling question – how can I change the colour of the menu links without changing the body links?

Thanks Kris

Dannci

Hello,

you can use e.g. following css code in style.css

#header a {color: #990000;}

Thank you

Default-user

Thanks, I have changed the links and hover but am still stuck on the active link. I can’t seem to change it’s colour.

Also, how do I change the height on the single post image. I tried using functions.php but it didn’t change.

Cheers Kris

Dannci

Hi,

1. do you mean ‘current’?

#main-nav > li.current-cat a, 
#main-nav > li.current_page_item a,
li.current-cat a{color: #990000 !important;}

2. in functions.php change 2nd value in

add_image_size('main-single', 686, 350, true);

after change regenerate old thumbs: http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

Default-user

Thanks again Dannci – that has worked. The reason I couldn’t get the change in functions.php to work originally was because I hadn’t reloaded the image.

Hi, any idea why when I click on my site on “get more posts” only the first ones keep appearing and appearing? My website’s URL is: http://snob.mx/

Thanks ;)

Dannci

Hello,

check your permalink settings and/or plugins (if used), because “next link” http://snob.mx/page/2 automatically generated by standard next_posts_link() goes to to homepage again.

Thanks

Hello, is it possible to remove the “Themnific Styling” in a child theme? I don’t want the styles in my page but want to insert them in the child css

Dannci
Hi, try to add
function remove_themepanel_actions() {
    remove_action('themnific_head','themnific_custom_styling',3);
}
add_action('init','remove_themepanel_actions');
into childs functions.php
Default-user

No, this does not work. I’ve hda this before with another theme and if I use functions.php inside the child-theme it only shows a blank site… Is it possible to use functions.php inside the child-theme?

When I add your lines of code to the normal functions.php I still get all the Themnific Styling inside my page (which I prefer not to have) but also is this code after blogdrops-child.css so it overrules my css…

Furthermore: is it also possible to have most popular posts instead of the latest posts in the right sidebar?

Dannci

Yes, you can use functions.php in child theme: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes#Using_functions.php

is mentioned code between <?php … ?> tags?

Default-user

I made a mistake copying the whole functions.php to the blogdrops-child. Now I got a functions.php with only your code but I still get the Themnific Styling in my document. Do you have also a solution for popular posts?

Default-user

When I comment add_action(‘themnific_head’,’themnific_custom_styling’); in theme-actions in the theme it works. When I do that in the same file in a child-theme this doesn’t seem to override the normal one?

Dannci

Hi, functions.php in child theme shouldn’t be copy of parents functions.php. It should be plain – only to add new functions.

No sorry, popular posts widget is not available.

Default-user

I know now but it still does not work… Only when I comment add_action(‘themnific_head’,’themnific_custom_styling’); in theme-actions in the theme it works. When I don’t comment this and I put your code in functions.php of the child the styling is still there… Zo I have it commented right now but I don’t like this solution because I have to do this agan if there is an update…

Dannci

Hmm, I’m sorry, I cannot test it now… I can look into later.

I’ve got an issue with gallerys on the homepage. When I look at my homepage my gallery posts look fine. I attached 2 pictures to the post and I get the option of paging through the gallery. When I click on “More posts” and scroll down to another gallery post it shows only a blank space where the gallery should be… If I look at the code the images are there… And when I click on read more the gallery works on the post page…. Strange. Any ideas?

Dannci

Hello, can you send me a link of mentioned page? Thank you

Was the issue of posts on the homepage overlapping the right sidebar solved? I’m having the same trouble that others have had. When I remove the ad in my sidebar, the problem persists, so it has nothing to do with the ad.

Interestingly, when I resize my browser to a smaller size (no refresh), the sidebar wraps to the left side, then I make the browser wide again (again, no refresh), then the post no longer overlaps the sidebar.

Dannci

Hello,

sorry I don’t know about any overlapping issue – can you give me link?

Masonry layout is “build” (blocks taking its positions) only when page is loaded.

Thanks

Dannci

Hello

Yes, it is about ads. Ads are loaded later, when masonry layout is already created and then increase sidebar height.

Ad fixed height for #adSidebar id so there will be place for ad block in sidebar.

Thanks

Hey, sorry, I mentioned in my previous message that when I remove the ad, the problem is still there. Thank you.

Dannci

Hi, Pinterest widget is loaded later than page layout – add fixed height for this widget too.
