any update to this theme coming ? any issues with 3.4?

feeleep

I did not test it out with WP 3 .4 so can’t be sure about. This is quite old theme and I don’t recommend using it with WP 3 .4. And YES , I do plan to update all of my themes but it doesn’t go so fast, I have only one pair of hands :)

UMMM IM TRYING TO CUSTOMIZE THE COLORS OF THIS THEME AND APPEARANCE > EDITOR ISN’T EVEN AN OPTION. WHERE CAN I REMOVE YOUR ROOSTER LOGO! AND CHANGE COLORS/FONTS?! WITHOUT GOING THRU FTP??? ALSO IM CHANGING THE BACKGROUNF AND IT’S NOT SHOWING UP ON THE BLOG BUT ITS SHOWING IN THE “PREVIEW” .......

Please note that Sofa Rooster has been tested with WordPress version up to 3.1 ( http://awesomescreenshot.com/07c2d9wf67 ). It’s almost 5 years old and many features found in nowadays themes are not available with it which means you’ll have to tweak it via CSS. The logo itself can be found as “sofa_rooster/images/logo_top.png” and needs to be replaced in folder (keep file name and type).

Yeap, open “header.php” in code editor then delete lines #80, #81, #82, #83 and #84. It should correspond to the following code:

<div id="branding">
    <a href="<?php echo get_option( 'home' ); ?>">
        <img src="<?php echo bloginfo( 'template_directory' ) . ( '/images/logo_top.png' ); ?>" alt="" />
    </a>
</div>
As for not been able to change bg color … not sure, it’s always good idea to provide a link to your website. But … I think that you’ll have to modify BODY tag as well…

“header.php”, line #75:
<body<?php echo $ishomeclass?>>
...needs to be changed to:
<body <?php body_class(); ?>>
...that’s how you should be able to change the background color via Appearance > Customize

For a case it doesn’t work, feel free to create a temp Admin account for me and I’ll take a look.

When I add widgets they don’t appear on the site for me

Ignore my other question, but I tried another domain and why is my footer messed up? Domain is – http://ttscoding.com/

Also, the widgets seem to go off to the side on all of the examples I have seen. Can you fix that? Please email me at – iantonio46@outlook.com Would really like to use this template ;/

Fixed everything, sorry for the annoying messages. One more question though… How can I remove the logos in the header and footer top left and bottom right.

feeleep

OK, glad to read you solved the problem with widgets. As for how to remove the site logos, try the following…

(1) open “header.php” and remove lines #80, #81, #82, #83 and #84

<div id="branding">
    <a href="<?php echo get_option( 'home' ); ?>">
        <img src="<?php echo bloginfo( 'template_directory' ) . ( '/images/logo_top.png' ); ?>" alt="" />
    </a>
</div><!-- branding end -->

(2) save “header.php” and re-upload (FTP) to the server if edited on local machine

(3) open “footer.php” and remove line #37
<img src="<?php echo bloginfo( 'template_directory' ) . ( '/images/logo_top.png' ); ?>" class="logo" alt="<?php echo( ( strlen( $home_link ) > 0 ) ? stripslashes( $home_link ) : 'Home' ); ?>" />
(4) don’t forget to save and upload back to the server

If you want to replace header/footer logo with your own, open “sofa_rooster/images/” folder, find “logo_top.png” and overwrite. File name and type (PNG) should be preserved!

Thank you!

Ugh oh, I removed the footer and now the site is all out of whack… Any help?

feeleep

Why did you remove site footer? I don’t have a URL of your website and can’t check the source code so get the footer back. Be sure that “wp_footer()” is not removed! This is WordPress core function and must be found in theme’s footer template.
