Hi,

I just bought this template and would like some help centering the container on the single post pages. As it is now, the content of the page is left aligned.

I am using the following CSS , which should work I think, but for some reason I can not get the container centered:

container{width:1000px; margin:0 auto; position: relative; }

I would like the content on the individual post pages to be centered in the middle of the page as seen here: http://www.fluidseo.com

Your advice is greatly appreciated.

Hi eDumps – I’m actually releasing a new optional update that will be coming out in the next week that will allow for optional centering – right now it’s going to be tricky to pull off though because the absolute positioning is being added via the Javascript. Hang tight for a bit and I’ll get the update out to you guys as fast as possible :)

I found this using Firebug

The absolute needs to be changed to relative but, I can’t find this in the code anywhere. It is not in core.css or quick style.

Hi eDumps – this is actually being added dynamically through the VGrid plugin – it’s part of the script that basically allows this theme to do what it does :)

I meant to include this – this is what I found in Firebug, but nowhere in the code

div id=”container” style=”left: 0px; top: 0px; display: block; position: absolute;”

Yep – as I mentioned, this is being added dymanically through the vGrid script :) So it’s source isn’t in CSS .

In short though – if you wanted to add this yourself, it basically requires creating a new post/page template that doesn’t use the “grid-content” ID so you can work around the absolute positioning.

So you will have it our in a week? I don’t think I am up for creating a new page template. If it will be a week, then I can wait for that.

Hi eDumps – I actually haven’t gotten any other requests for this modification so I’ve left it out of this latest update in an effort to speed it up – but send me an email with your request and I can actually just send you a custom made page template :)

A quick question regarding a link back to my main site. Where my blog lives in a sub directory ”/blog” can I place a link in the header to go back to my main site. I thought about possibly using the logo to go back, or create a new link in the header. How would I go about doing something like this? Would I create a new page and have it redirect somehow or? Cheers, Scot

Hi Scot,

Two ways you can do this, both are in header.php:

1: Go into header.php and just make the logo link to your main site.

2: Add a new link. You could do this by just adding a new LI to the navigation.

Both are detailed here for ya : http://pastie.org/897182

Hi.. any way to make the video light box come up a certain size? I have a 28” screen and it blows up as big as your screen when you play a YouTube video. any way to set parameters on how big the video plays so that they don’t look washed out? I know most people won’t have 28” screens but even at 17” or 19” a low res video will look horrible.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Donna,

I just sorted out the issue (it was an obscure syntax error on some servers) – the official patch is coming out tomorrow (along with a HOT new admin panel to boot :))

Hi, i just bought your theme. I’m trying to build a media/music oriented blog.

I have a couple questions:

1- I would like to have the different categories displayed in the header independently and not all under the scroll-down CATEGORIES as it is now. How could i do this ?

2- Is it possible to increase the size of the thumbnail pictures ? if so, how ?

3- Is it possible to separate the posts on the home page.. for example having subsections each 3 videos like .. HIGHLIGHTS .. LATEST .. MOST COMMENTS ..?

4- As i plan on using this theme as a blog, how can i add the date on the posts displayed?

Thanks for your time, Once again, great theme !.. I can’t wait to have this set up.. !

Hi Snomado,

1. This will require a little custom coding on your part – the navigation section is in the header.php file. While you can probably figure out a way to code it using a dynamic Wordpress category tag (http://codex.wordpress.org/Category_Templates), my best guess is that if you just want a few static categories, grab the permalink to that category and just drop that into the header as a new LI element. Check out this quick reference : http://pastie.org/905890

2. Yep – check out the documentation – there’s a mini tutorial on how to do this towards the bottom :)

3. Out of the box, no – you can manually arrange things by just adjusting the date (keeping the dates of videos close together, etc.), but right now the theme isn’t coded to handle any advanced sorting like this.

4. The easiest way to add the date is to just add the_date tag to the index.php section inside the module loop – http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/the_date

Cheers!

Hi ! Thanks so much for getting back to me I really appreciate it.

Thanks for the categories.. that really helped.. now if i wanted to change the color of the fonts for the categories and also for the titles in the footer as well how should i go about this?

As for the thumbnails, I tried following the steps you described but ended up having thumbnails that would not be saved in the same size…. as you may have guessed i’m really not that good at this. I just want the thumbnails to be bigger still rectangular but bigger, as i want the visuals to pop. Would you mind suggesting a size for me that would fit well ?

One last question.. I am currently using the Grunge template and was thinking of removing the whiteish background boxes in the pages and posts and change the font to white (and making the text a bit bigger) so that the text shows directly with the grunge theme background behind. Do you have any suggestions on how to implement this change?

Thanks a lot in advance again, i’ll send you my website url by private message if it helps!

Once again i really appreciate your help. Great work, i cant wait to launch!

One last thing… :P

I had noticed everytime i click on a PAGE or category the font of the top menu (where the pages and categories are) switches to a different bigger font while the page is loading then goes back to the normal font once page is loaded .. I verified with other computers that this did happen aswell.. Do you have any idea if this is just related to my install or is it the way the theme functions ?

Thanks again !

Any update on the major update you are releasing. I need this for commenting. I may have to just get a refund and start by using another blog. I really wanted to use this but two weeks later and I can’t comment is getting old.

Hi Donna,

I actually sent you the email 3 times over the weekend… so I’m a little confused at what happened (unless there is another Donna Perry that sent me an email). But yes, the update has been available for a few days now and I’ve been posting about it here as well as on Twitter ;)

Hey Brandon,

I applied the last two files you sent to fix the comment issue and it still didn’t work. I don’t get it. Will you be able to look at my installation and tell me what’s going on?

Comments do not work and have never in this theme.

donnaperry

How do you change the front page thumbnail image that is displayed? I want to alter the thumbnails that are on the homepage of my blog to reflect a more vertical size.

Thanks

Hi Ryan,

I’ve gotta go back and check the discussion board here – one of the buyers ran into a similar problem and figured out the solution. Since this is through the lightbox (ceebox), that’s probably the best place to go for support, but I’ll obviously be happy to help out as well. I’m still busy releasing a few other theme updates this weekend, but I’ll get back to ya as soon as I can if you don’t figure it out before me :)

erhm me again…

So far i’ve managed to do almost all changes i want apart from these:

I generated cufon font Helvetica Condensed renamed it to existing League_Gothic_400.font and dropped in… it works only for Menu… rest doesnt show up.. well it does but not as it should… to be honest your css file is a bit confusing since i had to change uppercase formating to normal…. still it doesnt generate cufon for the grid nor headlines in posts… any idea what im doing wrong? or there should be specific settings when genereate cufon?

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi leBrit,

Ok – so the Cufon is loaded from a few potential places:

flex.js:

/* Cufon Font Replacement */
Cufon.replace('#navigation ul li, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, #sidebar .title', { fontFamily: 'League Gothic' });
Cufon.replace('#navigation ul li', { color: '#ffffff' });
Cufon.replace('.current_page_item li a', {color: '#ffffff'});

Make sure that the fontFamily declaration matches with your Helvetica Condensed font title (which was an option in the cufon generation site).

Next: the color can be set from the css/custom/XXXXX/cufon.js file

i just grabbed the theme and I love it overall but am having a few issues. One is because this is my first stab at WP and the second i just cant find in the CSS i have looked in all of them, core.css , quick styles, and all of them in the import folder.

The issue I am having is the current page that you are on. I would like to change that color but i cant seem to find where it is:

http://www.yourwaryourwords.com/conflict/

I would basically like to change the color of the world choose your conflict from red to another color.

Also this is where i feel like a WP newbie but id like to change it so that the home page has some text and that for each conflict you would get a gallery. So basically what you see on the home page would show up if you clicked on choose your conflict > Iraq War.

Thanks in advance. -j

actually ignore most of my last post i figured most of it out but i have a few more questions :)

1. how do you set the amount of images in the gallery thumbs, before it paginates. Id like to have a few more images to chose from per page and right now its only 10.

2. How can I change the text in the main nav to be custom for the categories. I noticed of all the yes / no option this didn’t have custom text.

3. Where in the CSS do i modify where the drop down nav starts?

4. I cant seem to customize the text size in each thumbnail, i got the color and font but it doesn’t seem to be reacting to the size at all when i switch it up.

5. My question still stand about text on the home page

Overall awesome theme I think if i were more comfortable with WP I would be able to knock this all out no prob.

Hi JKash!

1. From the Settings > Reading panel :)

2. In header.php, find the following lines – and then just change the word “Categories” to whatever you’d like – http://pastie.org/903025

3. Check out the Cufon Related files – sometimes you need to be specific about the font-size in there.

4. Typography.css – line 31 :)

5. Looks like you’ve already sorted this out, but it’s all in the CSS for the custom style that you are using.

Cheers!

E!

Hey im working with this setup within the wordpress platform. I have 2 simple questions and was hoping you could help out.

1.) Is there a way I can remove the 1px line border that acts as a container around each image post?

2.) I created a new search field/box for the top right corner. Is there a way I can move the current setting down a few pixels, so the cursor and type align with the new search field?

Thank You

N

Hi N,

These should be pretty simple to answer if you’re using the FIrebug plugin like the documentation suggests, but I’ll be happy to help out :)

1. core.css – line 40 – .rounded { -moz-border-radius:6px 6px 6px 6px; border:1px solid #E8E8E8; }

2. It’s hard to say without seeing a link to your site…

Cheers! Brandon
