Hi Hercules, great theme. Really like the design. Just starting top set my site up now and have hit a couple of small cosmetic problems that I’d love some help with. Apologies if these are very simple. I’ve found the theme very easy to play with, but I just can’t seem to work these out. Thanks.

1. I’d like my blog to default to the “Filterable blog 2 cols with side bar”. But I can’t work out how to have this template set as the main page of my blog. Can only set it as a “page”.

2. I can’t work out how to have the formatting of my post “previews” on the main page of my blog stay formatted. e.g. My post preview just looks like plain text. But in the single page post it has a blockquote and dropcaps. But none of these show up in the preview?

3. Is there any way to turn off the social media icons on the preview post on the main page, but keep them on the single post page? (I find that the social media icons take up a lot of room)

Thats it. Appreciate any help. Thanks!

Hi, I sent you an email with the answers on the first two of your questions. 3. You can go to Theme Options -> Theme styles -> Custom css and paste there the following css code: .home .share-buttons {display:none;}

Hi, like your theme. How can I enable slideshow?

Hi, please just add a new slideshow type posts. Set for them the featured images. Then go to Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the text type widget on Slideshow widget area, uncheck “Automatically add paragraphs” option and paste the following shortcode:

[slideshow num="2" custom_category="" autoplay="5000" blankwindow="false" pagination="true" effect="fade" custom_class=""]

Hi,

Excellent theme.

I understand that Theme Options -> Logo & Favicon section allows me to change the spacing around the top AND bottom of the title/tagline, but I would like to only change the spacing below the tagline, that is, the spacing between the tagline and the blog.

I searched the comments here and didn’t see this specific answer. Thanks for any guidance.

Hi, in this case go to Theme Options -> Theme styles -> Custom css and paste there the following simple css code: .logo {margin-bottom:10px!important;}

cheers :)

Thank you for the prompt reply. I added this code but the space below the tagline and above the patterned background that offsets the different sections (blog, search) remains unchanged.

That’s impossible because I have tested this code. You can send me at support@hercules-design.com a link to your blog and maybe the username and password to wp-admin panel. I’ll check what went wrong.

How to I put the about in the side bar?

Please add the TEXT type widget on the Sidebar area and paste the following code / shortcode: [fullwidthimage photourl="http://www.buzzblog.hercules-design.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/scombs007.jpg"] <p>Hi, my name is Buzz. I'm a student living in London. This blog is to provide you with daily outfit ideas and share my personal style.</p> Of course change the photourl link on image from Media section. Uncheck Automatically add paragraphs option.

Hi Hercules, great Theme working perfectly so far until people started noticing that the pagination was broken. When they click on page 2, instead of showing page 2 it shows page 5-6. That is a bit disturbing for my readers. Have you ever encountered an issue like this one ?

Hi, you do not have the purchased badge, next to your username so I can’t help you.

Hi Hercules_Design, amazing theme! I was just wondering how I get my home page to be the 3 column filterable blog? Thank you so much for your help. You’re a superstar!!

Hi, Create a new page with template, called “Filterable Blog 3 cols” . Then go to Settings -> Reading and set your page as a static front page. I’m glad you like it :)

Hi, do you know any plug to the newsletter, which was compatible to the appearance template?

My apologies if you have answered this in the past – is there a way to place the menu on the left side? Essentially as a vertical menu? Thank you in advance!

Hi, in the header area you want to have the vertical main menu ? If so this requires editing the code.

Instead of having a menu in the header, is it possible to have the menu on the left side of the page?

If you want to have simple menu in the sidebar area you can go to Appearance -> WIdgets and drag the Custom Menu widget on the Sidebar widget area. Then change the sidebar position here : Theme Options -> Blog -> Sidebar position

I’ve been having trouble changing the homepage to a two-column blog with the sidebar. My homepage has been stuck on a one-column with sidebar and there hasn’t been an option I’ve found to change it yet. Please advise, thank you.

Hi, Create a new page with template, called “Filterable Blog 2 cols with sidebar” . Then go to Settings -> Reading and set your page as a static front page.

SEO optimized? ADS optimized?

It has option of placing advertisements in posts?

Hi, yes of course but we don’t have the option to put ads in posts.

Hi Hercules,

Love them theme. Really easy to work with. Great job!

I have a question, is it possible to change the author link from a text link to a gravatar?

Thanks!

Hi, you can go to includes/post-formats/ folder and edit the file called post-meta.php. The following line of code: <span class="vcard author"><span><?php echo $blog_author_name; ?> <i class="fn"><?php the_author_posts_link() ?></i></span></span> change on: <span class="vcard author"> <span><?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ), 32 ); ?> <?php echo $blog_author_name; ?> <i class="fn"><?php the_author_posts_link() ?></i></span></span>

Thanks for the quick response. I got lost at the first step. Go to includes/post-formats/. I can’t see that option on the wordpress UI. Where do I go to access that? thx

Yes it’s not available via wp editor. You need to use your server file manager or FTP connection. The full path to the file is: wp-content/themes/BUZZBLOG-theme/includes/post-formats/

Thanks for such a fantastic theme! One problem I’ve been having though, which I see a lot of other users have been having as well, is getting my Instagram widget to pull photos from my Instagram account properly. I have followed the instructions to get the Instagram access token, but when I click “Get Token” on the site, nothing happens. It simple refreshes that same page without generating any token. Is there another website or route I can take to get an access token and get the widget working on my blog?

Hi, maybe try to generate accesss token on this site: http://instagram.pixelunion.net/

Then your Instagram user ID will be the first few digits to the dot from the access token

That worked perfectly! Thanks for your help!!

HI, I like your theme a lot. A pre-sale question: any chance you will upgrade bootstrap support to 3.0?

HI, It’s definitely something we’ll consider, actually I’m sure we’ll do it after the release of our new theme based on the latest 3.3.5 bootstrap version.
