Ive tried emailing you and msging you (even PM) on here with no response for over 2 months (refer to page 7 of comments).

I just need help figuring out how to change the background color for all posts and for hyperlinks so that I don’t have to do it constantly.


I’ve chosen the white template but would like the background of my posts to be black. I have to keep inserting this code to each of my posts: <div style="padding: 1.2em; background-color: #000000; line-height: 1.4;">Blog Here</div>

Also, all hyperlinks show up black, so before every link I need to insert this:

<span style="color:#thecolorcode">Hyperlink</span>

I am also unable to utilize the “Read More” option because the link’s color code for that is also black, making it invisible.

Here is how my blog looks:


How do I change the background colour, hyperlink colour, and the “read more” colour PERMANENTLY ?

Please get back to me asap. I’ve already launched my site.

I’ve grown a little impatient with waiting for Akay to respond so if anyone else can help me, I couldn’t tell you how much I’d appreciate it.


Hi Akay,

Just curious if you could help me out with this little bit of code needed to hide the sidebar in the Portfolio category, it’s driving me crazy! I posted this a few weeks ago, here is the message… Thanks! – Keegan

If you get a chance, I have a question about Portfolio posts. I got the Portfolio gallery page to be full width (http://www.keeganhobson.com/category/portfolio/) but I was hoping to make each individual Portfolio post full width as well, without displaying the sidebar. I understand that each individual Portfolio post is in essence a blog post, but is there a way to add some code so anything with the “Portfolio” category does NOT display the sidebar? Here is my example of an individual Portfolio post (http://www.keeganhobson.com/2010/03/02/engagement-yazmin-manny/) it has the sidebar and I’d rather it didn’t display that for my individual portfolios. I looked through all the comments on here and couldn’t find anything on this specific question. Thank you so much, I really love the theme and keep up the great work!

I cant make bold or italic texts in this theme, anyone else that have the same problem?

The pictures on my homepage are no longer showing up. I haven’t touched the editor! What is the problem? All the links for the pictures still work. It just shows up as a white background.

Please help!

I’ve looked for any open tags and they are all closed. Just can’t seem to figure this one out.

I can send you whatever info you need. If you need the login-info, I can send that as well.

I know I’ve asked some questions in the past that you haven’t answered and thats fine. I understand that you may be busy and that my questions are a little novice. With some help on the people on this board, I’ve figured them out.

This is one however, that I can’t figure out myself. I would really appreciate your help. My site is pubic and already launched and I’ve taken the time to look through to find any bugs that may be causing this.

Please help Akay,

Hey Akay,

Just a heads up. It also seems like it may be a re-occurring issue with your template.

angel0405 experienced similar problems with his blog. Might be something worth looking in to (unless we’re doing something incorrectly).

Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks

Hey Akay,

I’m having trouble with embedding flash into bosspress.. You can see the page here.. basically the skin doesn’t show up when you mouseover the flash to control the movie.. have you come accross this before? or is it something that I’m doing wrong:


All the best


Hi Akay,

is it possible, the slide show link to other place.

@Akay – I’m with a few other people here. I can’t seem to get any images to show up on the home page. I’ve included the custom fields as described in the help menu. If you send me a message, I can get you a login to the site I am working on and you can have a look for yourself. Thanks.

@dylanrjohnson – You could change line 55 of header.php to: <?php wp_list_pages(‘title_li=&sort_order=ASC&sort_column=menu_order’); ?> and it should sort the pages as you set up in wordpress.

@dominman – header.php, change line 53 to whatever you want it to say (home or start).

@Akay – Nevermind, I figured it out. I only had one post with a home page image. Once I created a second, they both showed up. Not sure if that will help other people too.

Can the slide show can link to specific html, other site or page. Thank in advance

Hi Akay,

I really need to know how to set my own order on the navigation bar. I have played around with the header.php file but cant seem to set everything. I would like to be able to say for example Home – About Us – What We Do – Portfolio – Contact US

However the best I can do is to either have the Portfolio link after the Homepage or after the Contact Us.

Can you please assist with this. I emailed a few months ago about the same issue and you said you were working on a fix but I have scoured the discussion and couldn’t find anything.


@blademultimedia – Your problem here is (and I assuming) that the header goes like this:

Home | About (PAGE) | What We Do (PAGE) | Portfolio (CATEGORY) | Contact (PAGE)

The way Akay has the template set up is to call for all the categories, then call for the pages. As far as I know, there isn’t any way to mix lists with Wordpress’s php commands. The following is how I’ve been able to get around this:

1. header.php – Remove line 54 (Wordpress will no longer list your categories)

2. header.php – Modify line 55 to say: <?php wp_list_pages(‘title_li=&sort_order=ASC&sort_column=menu_order’); ?> (This will make Wordpress honor your page sort order attributes)

3. Install the plugin ‘Page Links To’

4. Create a page titled ‘Portfolio’. There doesn’t need to be any content here. Just at the bottom of the page under the ‘Page Links To’ section, add the link to the category (probably something like http://yoursite.com/category/portfolio – depending on how you have your permalinks setup). When someone clicks on that page, it will now forward to the category page.

5. If you have sub-category pages, create sub-pages with their corresponding ‘Page Links To’ forwards.

6. Set up you page order attributes in Wordpress (Ex. About (PAGE 1), What We Do (PAGE 2), Portfolio (PAGE 3), Contact (PAGE 4).

Everything should now look like you want. On a side note, I also often use the plugin ‘WP Hide Post’ to hide some pages I don’t want showing up on the main bar, that are posted in the footer (things like Site Usage, etc). For those links to show up in the footer, you just have to make manual html links.

Hope this helps.

@thedeancorp – That worked an absolute treat, I owe you one. Thank you for helping out!!

Having this problem during installation:

Warning: fopen(/home/metropo1/public_html/wp-content/themes/bosspress/style.css) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/metropo1/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3598

Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/metropo1/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3604

Please advice

I love your theme and I would like to use it for my homepage.

I’ve one question: Is it possible to use this “Full Width Showcase” on every page? So that the default layout would be the page with this “Full Width Showcase” and not only the first page like in the demo? If yes, is it possible to change images (which are displayed in the showcase) from page to page then?

Will there be free updates for this template? So i.e. for Wordpress 3.0 and the multi site-feature?

Thx in advance.
