hi, nice job with this awesome theme! congrats!. Pre-sale question: Can I exclude some categories from the blog page?

Thx.

EugeneO

No. The blog is the standard WordPress blog page. Excluding categories would require you to edit the WordPress query in the template files.

Hi again, Another question before buy your theme, In the portfolio item description, can I add for example soundcloud content or multimedia content or just text?

Thx

EugeneO

The excerpts can only contain text.

Hi, first af all, nice job with Soapbox, it is a really nice theme. I have a question about the portfolio grid. The thumbnails or tiles that are generated automatically are 4 rows and 3 columns, but in the last row, i have only 1 thumbnail, the other ones go to next page. It is weird because there is a black area at the bottom-right of the page ( 2 thumbnails area). Can you explain me how i can fix this and put all the thumbnails (11 in total) in the same page? Can I have all the thumbnails, dont mind how many in the same page?

If you need to have a look tell me. The website is in maintenance mode.

Thx

Manel.

Hi great theme, but i can’t seem to get the blog page to look like http://themes.eugeneo.com/soapbox/blog/ do i select archive in template ?

EugeneO

What ever page you have set as your latest posts page will look like the page you linked to as that is the template automatically used for the latest posts page and post archives (post categories and post tags).

is it possible to link a featured image (one of the picture boxes) from the main page to an external website.

I’ve been reading for hours, and I believe it can be done. I’m pretty unfamiliar when it comes to coding though. I tried to edit the functions.php file for example, and then I ended up crashing the site, and having to restore the functions.php from my host website’s backup.

EugeneO

There is no built in option to do that. You would have to save the URL as a custom field on the portfolio item’s edit scree and then output that custom field value as instead of the page permalink in the box link so when you click the box it links to your custom URL instead of the actual page URL.

thanks for the response! Would you be able to clarify a few things for me. As you can see, I’m a 100% beginner at wordpress, and I’m not sure where all of these things are.

So, on the portfolio item’s edit screen, what would I write exactly for “name” and “Value” in the custom fields?

And then how do I output that field value to the external URL? I don’t understand how or where to replace the actual URL permalink to the external URL.

EugeneO

The custom field name can be whatever you want it to be. In the example below I have use “custom_portfolio_link”. The custom field value would be the full URL you want to link to.

You then have to customize portfolio-grid.php and page-portfolio.php to check if there is a custom field and if there is use that instead of the default page link.

This:
<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php funky_the_title(); ?></a>

Become this:

<?php if ( get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'custom_portfolio_link', true ) != "" ) { ?>
    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php funky_the_title(); ?></a>
<?php } else { ?>
    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php funky_the_title(); ?></a>
<?php } ?>

The above code is completely untested so I can’t guarantee it works but gives you the idea of what you need to do and how you can go about doing it.

Thanks :)

The update was only just approved.

Hi EugeneO, I just purchased your theme and it’s great! I got a question about the post page.

I altready have a blog page, with the option “post page” in the customize menu. Now I would like to add another page, with the default “blog template” style, showing just some categories of posts and not all of them.

For example:

Blog: Post page with all categories.

Another page: A page with just some post categories.

Is it possible?

lu_wasabi

I think I found it. Just add the post categories in the Menu.

Hi EugeneO. I have to change the font of the page list in the navigation menu. I was able to install a different font with @font-face, but I don’t find the code block for the page list. Where (in the style.css editor) can I change the font size, just for the page list, in the navigation menu?

EugeneO

You need to identify the navigation menu item element’s CSS classes and existing CSS styles using your browser’s developer tools so that you can modify the CSS manually in your child themes style.css.

Open your browsers developer tools by right clicking on the navigation link. The links CSS properties and classes should be visible beside the page’s source code.

I did it! Thanks!
