Hi,

Is there a way to get the different color schemes when a specific page of the website is clicked. For instance, if they click “ministry” the page show a red theme and when they click on “about” it shows a orange theme.

Hi Jerry,

I’m sorry, currently my theme doesn’t have that functionality. But I’m sure it can be done by customizing the header.php

Thanks

I just installed this theme and the home page nav link goes to /home…which is different than the index page…any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi Jason,

You need to create a “Home” page, and choose the site_home as the page template. Go to Settings > Reading, and choose the Home page you just created as the front page.

Let me know if that doesn’t work.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply…I did as the instruction indicated, however I did not set home page to static page – I did this and everything works fine!

Thank you!

Is it possible to show me how to make the 3 category posts be customized as static posts instead of just categories? The problem with showing the 3 categories is that then if I have a pastors blog page – all the posts show up on the pastors blog. I tried using one of the categories for events but then you can’t put upocoming events, only the dates you actually make the post. I can’t figure any other way to make those categories work for us. Can you advise?

I saw how savemykids was able to do this. This is the last thing left to get my site running live.

Try this:

In line 35 site_home.php replace this code: <div class="tab_content" id="tab1"> &lt;?php query_posts("category_name=$cat_tab_1&showposts=4"); ?&gt; &lt;?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?&gt; <ul class="tab-post"> <li> <div class="date left">&lt;?php the_time('M j'); ?&gt;</div> <h4 class="post-title event-post left"><a href="&lt;?php the_permalink() ?&gt;">&lt;?php the_title(); ?&gt;</a></h4> <div class="clear"></div> </li> </ul> &lt;?php endwhile;?&gt; </div>

with this

<div class="tab_content" id="tab1"> <?php query_posts("category_name=$cat_tab_1&showposts=1"); ?> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <?php the_content(); ?> <?php endwhile;?> </div>

If that works, you’ll need to replace the code in the other 2 tabs as well.

I hope that answers your question.

I found that you can back date the event. Not a perfect solution but you can see here at http://theolivebranchhemet.org/word/ I just went Oct 31 2009 and then the event on the page would show Oct 31. What might work is if we could get one of these tabs as a page rather than a catagory post.

population2

I think that will work.

I changed the code and it worked perfect on the first tab! The 2 and 3 tab are not showing post. I’m not sure what to do to make the last 2 show the articles. Could we make the tabs for pages instead of categories – that would be even better!

population2

You can use the same code for the tab 2 and 3 to showing post. Just write that code inside the .. and ..

As for showing pages, I don’t know the code off the top of my head. But I’m sure you can do that by cahgning the query post parameter. Read more at http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/query_posts

Try to change the category_name=$cat_tab_1 with page_id=”insert the page id here”

page content in tabs?

Hey .. i just saw the thread about changing the content of the tabs .. was ur solution to just manually put all the text in the site_home file? or were you able to put code in to dynamically display the contents of a page?

just curious :) thanks!

population2

Please read my message to sharond73.

You could put the text manually or use the code I told sharond74. I haven’t try that for, so it might not work.

This may be a really stupid question, but is there a way to have blog posts list on one specific page? My client wants a blog and its easy enough to put it in the tabs at the bottom of the home page…and its easy to click them and see each post individually, but is it possible to have a page that I can link to where all the posts are listed?

population2

Yes you can do that. Create a new page, for instance “Blog” page. Then go to Settings > Reading and choose the Blog page you just created as the Posts page. Make sure that you choose “A static page”

Is is possible to have my “child” pages appear in a drop down menu when the “parent” page is moused over in the menu? I apologize if this is a stupid question! Thanks in advance.

population2

Yes it’s possible. You just need to configure the menu. Read more at http://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_SubPanel

Once an item is added to a menu, those menu items can be rearranged. Placing the mouse cursor over the menu item title, when the mouse cursor changes to 4-arrows, hold the left-mouse button down, drag the module to where you want to place it, then release the mouse button (this is called drag-and-drop). Remember you can drag a menu item slightly to the right of the menu item above it to create a hierarchy (parent/child) relationship in the menu.

i did a custom menu. it doesn’t work for me. can you please be more specific?

Mimieux,

You need to create the pages first and then add the pages in the menu, otherwise it won’t work.

Could you share me access to your WP admin so I can take a look at it? You can email me at populationtwo at gmail

is there a way to add thumbnails to the posts on the home page instead of just text only? if so I will buy

population2

I’m sorry, currently the theme doesn’t have that capability. However, it’s possible to add the thumbnails by modify the php and css.

Thanks

and how do you put dates like matt did on his announcements tab?

http://www.godcentered.info/ for example

population2

Do you mean showing 7 posts instead of 5 post? You need to edit the site_home.php to do that. Email me at populationtwo at gmail, and I’ll walk you through.

You don’t need to do anything to show the dates. That’s the default style. You just need to create posts within the category.

Hi,

Is their a reason why the theme won’t upload via WP install? No problem using FTP , but can’t figure out why it won’t install through the WP installer. etc.

population2

I’m sorry, I have no clue. Could be an issue with your server’s configuration. Usually, if there are security restrictions in place, they should cause the plugin/theme install to fail.

I absolutely love this theme!! You have a great eye for design.

I am having a strange problem that for the life of me I can’t figure out. I did look through all the comments hoping I was not the only one who has run into this. I saw where someone asked how to add an image to the Side Bar.

I am adding an image in the Headline Box – Body Text box. But when the page renders it is adding a \ in my rendered tag and the image will not show up.

img

Any ideas??

Thanks, Melissa :)

I just realized that my post got reformatted. Hopefully this will not get stripped.

My website is firstbaptistdestin dot com if you do a page source you will see where the image in the Sidebar box it is adding a \ right after the equal sign and another one right before the closing quotes for the image. I did see where bclair may be asking about the same issue.

Well I finally figured it out…for whatever reason it did not like the quotes in my tag markup. While it is not proper code to not put quotes around your variables removing them fixed the problem and now it works.

Hope that makes sense.

population2

I’m sorry for my delayed response. I didn’t check my TF this morning.

Thank you for resolving the issue. Actually I sent a message earlier, but my message got reformatted, so the code isn’t displayed.

And thank you again for helping bclair solving the problem.

Ok this is my last annoying post of the day. I promise!!

For anyone who really does not like the images scrolling all the way back to the beginning the fix is really quite simple.

After searching high and low for a solution I finally found a newer version of the EasySlider that is used in this template.

You can download it from here:

cssglobe.com/post/5780/easy-slider-17-numeric-navigation-jquery-slider

All I had to do was upload it to the js folder in the LOP template folder and change the header.php file to point to it.

Waaaalaaa it actually worked, that never happens but here is the proof:
