Thanks for the theme brandon. Sorry for this simple question, but can you tell me how to place the sample ads in the side bar under the specific headings (just as you have it in your samples). I can’t seem to do it. I know I must be missing something incredibly simple? Thanks again.

No problem soph!

Here’s the code that I have in the demo – you can obviously edit this to your hearts content, but the general premise here is that you can add your own custom HTML to those text widgets:

<ul class="ads bg"> <li><a href="#"><img src="http://makedesignnotwar.com/themes/pixelcraft/html/assets/img/global/sidebar/ads/sample01.jpg" alt="Sample" /></a></li> <li><a href="#"><img src="http://makedesignnotwar.com/themes/pixelcraft/html/assets/img/global/sidebar/ads/sample02.jpg" alt="Sample" /></a></li> <li><a href="#"><img src="http://makedesignnotwar.com/themes/pixelcraft/html/assets/img/global/sidebar/ads/sample03.jpg" alt="Sample" /></a></li> <li><a href="#"><img src="http://makedesignnotwar.com/themes/pixelcraft/html/assets/img/global/sidebar/ads/sample04.jpg" alt="Sample" /></a></li> </ul>

Cheers!

hi Brandon

Can I do it all via the Wordpress admin panel, or do I have to author it all into the actual file? Sorry, still confused.

Hi Soph – just drop the code that I have there into a “Text Widget” under the “Appearance > Widgets” page :)

Hi Brandon, thanks for your reply. The slider didn’t work from initial installation (without plugins installed) so don’t think it will be a third party issue.

Hi Mtm,

Did you get this fixed? The only reason in the past that the slider hasn’t worked is if users haven’t filled out the Admin panel yet – once you fill that out completely it should work like a charm.

Cheers! Brandon

The options panel gives two choices for markup language: HTML 4 Strict or XHTML 1 .0 Strict . I’m wondering how to best go about disabling this option completely, as I’d like to use Transitional rather than Strict.

Hi there!

You’d actually want to just remove it from the header.php file and add your own specific format :)

Cheers! Brandon

Ok, ignore my last comment. I just replaced the first two lines in the header.php file with static html so it wouldn’t call the options. All is good. :)

Hi,

I just uploaded Pixelcraft to a new Wordpress installation and imported the dummy content, but I can’t get the slider to auto rotate. The getting started guide mentions excluding pages “lrg-slider” and “sm-slider” from the pages navigation, but I don’t find these pages. Does this instruction refer to an earlier edition of the theme?

What can I do to get the slider working?

Thanks!

Hi,

I wanted to add that I’ve already tried disabling all the plug-ins.

The height on my “heading image” photographs is getting compressed. For example, I have one that is 626×450 and it is getting compressed to about 626×250. Is there an exact size for the heading image? I thought it could be any height as long as the width was 626.

Thanks

Hi Brandon,

Couple things… I’m a noob and just learning my way around.

First, I can’t seem to get the “Next Articles” button at the bottom of my home page to link to the right page. It doesn’t seem to matter what I set it to in the Settings page.

Second, like the guy above, I mine won’t auto-rotate on the front page.

Here’s the site if you have a chance to check it out.

Hiya BSteckler!

It looks like you’ve already solved both of these issues, just let me know if you have any other questions :)

Cheers! Brandon

Hi Brandon, editing this comment as I saw from a previous poster and your response on how to work the ads into the sidebar. I thought the code came with the theme. I’m new to all this and getting time to learn. Can you take a look and see if all is ok so far?

Here’s my site: www.socialonthetown.com

Thanks! Jeff

It appears as though you’re doing a great job so far – just gotta finish up going through the instructions, entering the slider posts and images, etc. :)

Hi there

I now have 2 gallery sections under my slider and can’t work out how to delete just one of them – not sure how I ended up with 2 !

you can see it here – www.russellhoward.com

thanks

Hiya Russel!

You should be able to just delete the extra page – but looking at the link, it appears as though you already solved it.

Cheers! Brandon

Hi Brandon, just checkin in…how can I get where only one new posting/blog entry shows up on the home page?

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hiya jeff,

There are two ways if I understand your question correctly.

1. You can set a static homepage (instead of blog posts) from the Settings > Reading panel.

2. You can enter “1” into the Pixelcraft admin panel question for “homepage posts”.

Cheers! Brandon

I just purchased this theme. Excellent work, Brandon. I do have one simple question that I may find by exploration. If I want to change the background color on all pages, how might I override the default. I’ve set it in the body{} section of the style.css, but no luck. It might be my error, or it might be overwritten elsewhere, so I thought to ask.

Thanks in advance for any help.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Right now it’s being set from style.css on line 41 :)

If I change the default background color for the theme, there are widget displays whose backgrounds do not display correctly within blog items. See the widgets on the right at the following location. Thanks for any help/fixes with this. http://kellyeddington.com/watercolor-artist-blog/

I have a similar issue to one mentioned early. On the blog page, the Next Articles button delivers a 404 error. The URL appears to have the text for the page title, instead of the page. See: http://kellyeddington.com/watercolor-artist-blog/

Hiya there!

Do you have the latest version of the theme? This bug should have been corrected in the latest update, so let me know your version and I’ll be happy to walk you through the fix.

Cheers! Brandon

Wordpress reports my current theme as PixelCraft 1.5. If that is not the correct version, how do I d/l the latest?

Reposting. The wait for support is getting frustrating.

Heya Jeff,

I just noticed this myself – since most people have the same page-title as page-slug, this hasn’t turned up much yet, but I’ve released an update for this and it should be ready in the next day or two for you and the few other people that ran into this. Sorry about the delay btw, it’s been a busy week but I usually catch up at the end of the week ;)

Cheers! Brandon

Hey everyone – just letting you all know that I’ve been slammed with some life stuff over the past week or so (graduation, wedding, etc.) – In short, where my usual response time has been mere hours, now it’s taking me quite a bit longer to get back to some of you. I’ll be following up with all support requests as soon as humanly possible next week!

Thanks for your understanding and patience! Brandon

I’d like to make the “gallery” fade, not ship over to the next slide.

Any thoughts?

Hi NPMac – I suppose that you could, it’d just take some customization on your part since that’s not the default behavior. Check out the KarmicFlow site for more details on the slider: http://www.karmagination.com/blog/2009/09/10/karmic-flow-0-1-content-slider-for-karmagination-jquery/

Cheers! Brandon

I have checked it out but am not sure what to modify to get it to fade rather than slide. I’m pretty good with coding but this one has me stumped. :/
