How would I get the author name at the top of the post to link to the author index? (which file to edit and what code to add) Thanks!

gawibowo
In content-single.php file at line 19,
you will find this code:
<?php the_author(); ?>
change it with this:
<?php the_author_posts_link(); ?>

The custom login logo links to wordpress.org. How can I point that to the site homepage?

gawibowo
Please add this code to functions.php:
function custom_login_url() {
    return site_url();
}
add_filter('login_headerurl', 'custom_login_url', 10, 4);

Hi gawibowo,

You should update the theme version of the child theme as well. Otherwise when using child theme, the theme update notifier will keep notifying about the new update (child theme v1.0 and latest 1.1)

gawibowo

Thanks for pointing this out. You can change the version number in the child theme’s style.css. I will also update the child theme’s version in future updates.

Thanks for the awesome template. I have one question, it is possible to sort article by rating (on Categories Masonry page)?

gawibowo
Yes it is possible, but if you sort by rating, all posts without ratings will not be shown.
In the page-categories-masonry.php file, replace line 27 – 28 with this code:
    'orderby'   => 'meta_value_num',
    'meta_key'  => '_g7_overall_rating',
    'order'     => 'DESC'

Thank you very much.

I just purchased this and there is an update to 1.1 . Every time I download, only 1.0 downloads. Please help so I can update. thx.

gawibowo

Are you using the child theme? If yes, you should update the version number in child theme’s css file at line 5, replace 1.0 with 1.1

Thank you. Another question – I tried to put shortcode button inside a shortcode box. It does not seem to work.

gawibowo

You mean to insert shortcodes inside a page content? I checked your blog and it’s already showing buttons in the homepage.

I tried to put a shortcode button INSIDE a box from shortcode and it would not display. I had a box with content and inside the box, then I wanted a button. It would not display the button – it instead displayed the shortcode code. Thanks for the help.

gawibowo

No box shortcode in my theme, is it from a plugin? If yes it should be modified so it can convert other shortcodes inside it.

Hello Gawibowo. My blog run very well with your theme. Thanks again. A simple question. Do you think it’s possible for me to replace the posts text with the font that this blog uses? If possible how can I do that?

http://www.imore.com/jumping-ship-test

I think that the css lines defining the font are these ones

font-family: OpenSans,Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
font-size: 16px;
line-height: 25px;
color: #333;
}
but I’m not so good in CSS and programming so I prefer to ask you :-)

Thanks!

gawibowo

The font in that blog is the same as my theme (Open Sans), but in bigger size.
You can change the font size in style.css at line 19 for single post (replace 13px with a higher value), or at line 941 for the excerpt.

Default-user

Perfect, thanks!!!

Default-user

Problem. If I put a bigger text size like 13, there is some sort of overlapping at the post’s bottom. Look at the image

http://i.imgur.com/fmL6Ec4.png
Default-user

What I’d want is to replace the font with something more incisive and readable also changing the color. I think that the one in the imore blog is very good but a little smaller…

gawibowo

You can try to change the font to 16px and it’s still looks good imo, and it shouldn’t be a problem with the layout. Did you already refresh the page after the change?

Default-user

After the change I’ve refreshed the layout and in the image above you’ll se the result. It appear like if the post box was fixed in height and if I use 16 instead of 13 the nrelate thumbs goes out of the inner bottom…

Hi, I don’t know if you fixed some of these issues with the new version, but since I can’t download the new version on themeforest, these exist: All pages are only the default layout. It does not matter if I say full width, right sidebar, left sidebar, etc or grid and columns, etc, all pages lay out by the default. This is clearly broken. Can I get some assistance? Is this fixed in the update? If so, how can I get the update? thank you

gawibowo

Hi, you can get the update by re-download the new version of this theme from ThemeForest in My Account -> Downloads, and click on the “download” button. And then, extract the zip file and upload the compasso folder to your blog (you may need to backup your old compasso folder if you have changed the theme’s files). If you still have trouble with the update, please send me your ftp details via my contact form and I will check it.

I have updated. Please look at my home page. It is set to “default template” and to “full width”. The default for all pages is right sidebar but I do not want a sidebar on this home page. I want this full width. No matter what I set this page to, the sidebar appears on the right. I do not want blog posts to appear on this page. I want just a full width page to appear. thank you for your help http://runningfordylan.com

Sorry, there is a bug because of showing the slider before the page. It will be fixed in the next update. Meanwhile, please add this code at the bottom of slider.php file:

OK that just stripped everything. I added it before the endif statement and after. Neither worked. Do you have another idea? the page is set to full width for sure – I checked.

It should be after the endif statement. If it still doesn’t work, could you provide a temporary WP and FTP account of your site so I can take a look to find the issue?

Hello, I’de like to replace the standard pagination with WP-pagenavi. in the plugin page I read that I’ve to replace something like

<div class="nav-previous"><?php next_posts_link( __( '<span class="meta-nav">?</span> Older posts', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></div>
<div class="nav-next"><?php previous_posts_link( __( 'Newer posts <span class="meta-nav">?</span>', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></div>

with

<?php wp_pagenavi(); ?>

Can you please tell me where and what to replace just to avoid any problem?

Thanks!

gawibowo
For custom page templates (page-grid.php, page-list.php, etc), replace this code:
<?php g7_pagination($custom_posts->max_num_pages); ?>
with this:
<?php wp_pagenavi(array('query' => $custom_posts)); ?>
For other pages (archive, author, category, tag, search, etc), replace this code:
<?php g7_pagination(); ?>
with this:
<?php wp_pagenavi(); ?>

I have several issues with new update:

1. Pagination of the main page is not working (see here http://www.jyoti.ru/page/2 ). In category archives it is works (http://www.jyoti.ru/research/page/2 ).

2. In WP-admin I got permission error (‘You don’t have permissions to visit this page’) on ‘Compasso update notifer’ (/wp-admin/index.php?page=theme-update-notifier).

3. I have updated theme to v1.1 but still get message (/wp-admin/themes.php?page=theme-update-notifier):

There is a new version of the Compasso theme available. You have version 1.0 installed. Update to version 1.1.

(I am usign a child theme of Compasso)

gawibowo
  1. Did it work before you update the theme? I have tried with version 1.0 and 1.1 in my local WordPress installation and it works.
  2. The update link in the admin bar is wrong. The correct link is the one in the Appearance sub menu. The next theme update will fix this issue.
  3. The notifier script should only check the version of the parent theme. Already fixed this for the next update. Meanwhile you can change the version number in the child theme’s css to 1.1 so the notifier will not show up.

I use lists in my posts but with Compasso it looks like ordinal paragraph without any list markers. I know that you have special tags for the lists, but is it possible to have normal list disks (or other) if no shortcode were used?

gawibowo
This is the default list style of skeleton (the css framework used in this theme). For the disc/square/circle style lists, you can add a class in the ul, for example:
<ul class="disc">
...
</ul>

If you want to set disc for the default list style (without adding class), you can add this in the css:

ul {
    list-style: disc inside;
}

Can you give some recommendations on advanced customization of the theme with CSS? What is the better way?

1. Main menu (background, on hover, text color, active item, search field)

2. Headers (text color – content, widgets, header, footer)

3. Links (text color, hover – content, widgets, header, footer)

May be it will be useful to gather all good recommendations from this forum and put them together in documentation?

gawibowo

I’m sorry but can you be more specific, how do you want the menu, headers and links look like? Maybe I can give examples from that.

ram108 Purchased

The most important for me is to know what CSS styles should I change/add to customize color of main menu (background color and text color).

gawibowo
To change the color of the main menu, add this code:
/* background color for top level menu */
#mainnav {
    background-color: #fff;
}

/* background color for sub menu */
#mainmenu ul {
    background-color: #fff;
}

/* text color for top level menu */
#mainmenu > li > a {
    color: #222;
}

/* text color for sub menu */
#mainmenu ul a {
    color: #222;
}

/* background & text color on hover */
#mainmenu li:hover > a {
    background-color: pink;
    color: #555;
}

Hi gawibowo..

help 1: Slider problem ? How to create a slideshow? problem..

help2: How can the entire site Categories Masonry ?

gawibowo
Hi tahaforest
  1. Slideshow uses posts with a user defined tags (default tag is “featured”), so if you add a post with that tag, it will automatically shown on the slideshow.
  2. Categories Masonry only works for pages. You can use it as a normal page and set it for the homepage.
tahaforest

soory.. I’m bad english

1 – default tag is “featured” Where is the Menu? not slider.. Where the label is enabled. writing ? images ?

2 – Home page list mode is always.. ? Ben sayfalar? kuruyorum ama sayfalar? ba?ar?l?, ancak ana sayfaya liste gibi görünüyor.

For all pages Categories Masonry ? must be.

gawibowo

1. You just need to create a normal post (From Posts -> Add New), but you must set a featured image and add a “featured” tag. Maybe this screenshot will help you: http://i.imgur.com/Wx169Lq.png

2. You mean to set the homepage with Categories Masonry? Please follow these steps:
  • Create a page, enter a title and choose “Categories Masonry” page template.
  • From the Categories meta box (below the content editor) you can set what categories to show.
  • Click “Publish” button to save the page.
  • Go to Settings » Reading, on Front page displays, choose A static page and select the page you just created from the front page dropdown and click Save button.

Hi Gawibo,

I am his brother, i think we can communicate easier. He told me about his concerns on your template. He is still having some problems and i will ask you one by one, not to contunie interrupting you :)

- He could not put the pink ’’home’’ logo instead of the word at the top, can you explain how are we going to creat the pink ’’home’2 logo ? Please see below screenshot http://i.imgur.com/eKbCjOX.png -At the top of the page, as i see your template, there are ’’sample page, contact, sitemap and dropdown links above the compasso tag. But on his template; whatever he has as ’’menu’’ same links are shown instead of ’’sample page, contact…...’’. Please see below screenshot http://i.imgur.com/uRH4W46.png How can we manage it ?

-As he asked before , when he click on ’’home’’ button, he can see his home page as a list, not categories masonry or anything else. He does not want to forward his home page to another category or link, he can design pages, short codes, categories etc. but he can not design home page, it is related to another page.

AS YOU WROTE BELOW ; Create a page, enter a title and choose “Categories Masonry” page template. From the Categories meta box (below the content editor) you can set what categories to show. Click “Publish” button to save the page. Go to Settings » Reading, on Front page displays, choose A static page and select the page you just created from the front page dropdown and click Save button.

But what if he does not create a new page and forward the home page to the new page ? Isn’t it possible to design home page without forwarding to another page ?

Well if you understand , i already appriciated to all your efforts and answers :) Thank you much.

gawibowo
  1. To set the home icon, please see “Set home icon for Main Menu” on the theme documentation.
  2. You can manage menus from Appearance -> Menus, please see “Menus” on the theme documentation for more details. WordPress Codex also has a user guide for menu management: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Menu_User_Guide
  3. For the homepage, you can only choose between 2 options: use default homepage (showing latest posts with list view) or choose another page as the homepage. If you want to design homepage without forwarding to another page, you need to edit the script directly (index.php).

First off great theme!

I want to be able to have the featured photos (thumbnails) on my home page (recent posts) show up in the RSS feed. how can make this happen?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

By default featured images will not be shown in your RSS feed. You can change that with some plugins for example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/featured-image-in-rss-feed/

This is my first time editing a theme. How do I get the slider to work? I created a post and put a tag, then I inserted the tags in ‘slider’ in ‘theme options’ but it is still not showing up. What else should I do?

gawibowo

Don’t forget to also add a featured image. If the post doesn’t have a featured image, it will not show up in the slider.

Yes, it is possible to use pages or both, by editing the WP_Query in slider.php
