Hey Feeleep.

Great theme – I love It.

Two quick issues:

1) How can I exclude the posts in the “featured” box from showing up on the normal front page?

2) The twitter-birdie.png do not show up in IE. Works great in FF.

Thanks :-)

Which version of Rooster theme you have, did you download the latest release? Sofa Rooster 2.0 solved the problem of a featured and normal Post redundancy which means that if a certain posts was declared as ‘featured’, it won’t show up once again on the list of posts below jQuery slider. The same goes for Twitter icon.
Either way, feel free to drop me a private email in case the problem persist. You can create a temp Admin account for me as well. Thanks!

I tried that but it only changes the top part. Want to change the background at the bottom too. I can email you the address if you could take a look at it please.

feeleep

Sure, drop me a message and possibly create a temp Admin account for me. That’s how I’ll be able to modify css per your request. Thanks!

Have downloaded Rooster twice and although it shows up in WordPress themes, it says it has to have a stylesheet and template. Style.css is not in the folder, although ie.css is. I am using Safari for Mac to download. Any ideas?

Thanks, whardy7

It sounds like you have both versions (old and new 2.0) of Sofa Rooster theme installed on WordPress. Try to delete older version completely, otherwise two themes will kinda share settings. If it doesn’t help – drop me an email. Create a temp Admin account for me and I’ll handle it.

Thanks it worked with an update :-)

But there is a new problem. I can not get the Contact page to work. I can not receive email. Experience with this?

feeleep

Contact form results are sent to WP Admin email address. Sometimes this address doesn’t share domain with website. And some hosting providers do not allow sending form results outside of domain for security reasons, spam control, etc.
Try to create an email account that shares domain with website and see whether it works.
If the problem persist, create a temp Admin account for me, drop me a message and I’ll have a look at it. On a side note, if you are on Yahoo Small Business hosting, it does require a little bit different sendmail settings. I can handle that part too, just mail me.

Brilliant theme- even better support. Thanks for everything!

You welcome!

Can someone please post how to make the main page the blog page? I am not interested in having a home page with the slider or the “big” or “small” boxes. I would just like my main page to operate like a traditional blog. The blog page you have in the demo is perfect. How do I make that my main page?

I have a same problem I want to use our demo page and include paging in start page. pls help me.

feeleep

Sorry but you are currently not flagged as a buyer of this theme so I can’t provide assistance.

Hi,

Maybe this is already answered, but I have trouble to get 1 fixed image in the background of the theme. The image is only shown in the top of the theme, the rest is still the grey background? How can I fix his?

Thank you in advance!

Greets,

Harald

I guess entire logic regarding Background feature in WordPress is kinda wrong. BODY element doesn’t get the height of 100% (of the screen) but rather “wraps” page content.
However, HTML element does match the screen height from top to toe. Now you have 2 options:
1) read here how to make a workaround for BODY tag: http://css-discuss.incutio.com/wiki/Hundred_Percent_Height
2) manually modify “style.css” by adding background image to HTML element
- open style.css and go to line #53
- it currently reads : html { background-color: #222; } so all you gotta do is to replace background-color with full background property like so:
html { background: url(images/your_image.jpg) repeat 0 0 #222; }
Of course, don’t forget to replace “your_image.jpg”, change “repeat” to “repeat-x”, “repeat-y” or “no-repeat” if required, reposition, or change background color (#222) to fit your needs.

Hi,

I’m having an issue with the Featured Content slider on the home page—it won’t slide.

I’ve disabled all jQuery related plugins, but I’m still getting the error:

http://www.djgumsoul.com/:219 Uncaught TypeError: Object #<an object> has no method 'cycle'</an>

This is with the latest version of both WordPress and Sofa Rooster.

Your assistance would be much appreciated.

feeleep

I’ve gotta admit that’s the strangest error I saw in my life. However, it seems like someone has made a typo by modifying jQuery code of a featured content slider. This slider uses “cycle” plugin and I can read it was mentioned.
No matter what, if you ain’t skilled with PHP and jQuery – feel free to create a temp Admin account for me on your WP driven website. I’ll debug stuff from theme Editor and fix it up. Use my private email account to send login data. Thanks!

Even though I have selected Primary and Footer menus correctly, I am getting Primary appearing in both places.

Can you assist? Thanks!

feeleep

Top menu must use “Main menu” name when declaring it in Appearance > Menus section while the bottom one has to be named “Footer menu”. Try to re-name existing or simply start over.

How can I have some intro text AND posts appear on Home page?

Thanks!

feeleep

I don’t understand. Did you add some posts and they don’t show up or else?

pmycroft
pmycroft Purchased

No, I was asking if it’s possible to have both a block of text (page) AND the posts show up on the Home page.

So the posts appear underneath a block of text.

However, I doubt that can happen due to the Reading setting.

Just asking – no worries.

feeleep

OK, now I’ve got it. And the answer is YES , it can be done. Feel free to drop me a private email with details. Thanks!

Hi again!

When I install the “JQuery T-Minus Countdown 2.0.3” plugin, the Featured Post slider stops working.

Can you assist? Thanks.

In the end, I created a new page and added it to the Home page instead of posts. That way, no conflict occurs.

Thanks.

You welcome, I’m glad to read you’ve got it!

Hello everyone! I’m experiencing a problem with my theme . I want for example to have a sticky post on my homepage. I click on posting options in the right side panel (new post) and i check the Make it sticky option.After that , on my homepage this post appears twice : in the featured section and also , as first post from the home page.

I really want that post to appear only ONCE on home page.How can I do this ?

Thanks

feeleep

The latest Rooster theme does have redundancy of “featured” and “normal” Posts on index page resolved. Please check whether your theme is up to date. if the problem persist, feel free to create a temp Admin account for me and send username/password to my private email address. That’s how I’ll be able to debug code and see where exactly it turns the wrong way.

Very nice theme! Great job

What must I do to make the posted photos automatically resized to 560px wide, and when clicked open the original photo on lighbox (as in the preview) ?

thanks

feeleep

How about installing Shadowbox plugin? Find it here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shadowbox-js/
Beside, check out whether media settings (main Admin menu, Settings > Media) correspond to those recommended by theme manuals.

How about the shadowbox, its ok!

On the horizontal dimension of the posted images, i had already changed the media settings according to your tutorial but the images do not automatically adjust.

feeleep

It happens because WordPress can’t apply new settings to already cropped images. All of them will keep width/height and all the previously inserted images must be re-inserted, there’s no way to make it happen automatically.

PS
From main Admin menu select Media > Library and delete images from there, otherwise duplicates will be created.

Thank you for the wonderful theme, however I have a question. Whenever I try to insert a gallery of pictures in a post, it shows a lot of code above the pictures, and none of the formatting works correctly. This is only an issue on the main page, if I click to view the single post, the gallery works fine. I’ve had to resort to putting my galleries at the bottom of posts so they don’t appear on the main page, but I don’t want that to be a permanent fix. This is the built-in gallery option from WP, any advice on what I can do?

feeleep

Uhmm…I’ll have to take a look, not sure why it happens. Will you be able to send me screenshots or something? Do you have any plugin installed that might be affecting gallery? It’s hard to speak about eventual solution without actually being face to face with the problem.

hello. I try to set a featured image to each post,but after uploading it and after setting it to be featured, it’s still not visible in the post.

Any solution ?

Thanks

feeleep

Images can’t be “featured” but only Posts. Not sure what exactly you are trying mate.

Hi Feeleep. Thanks for fixing my site today. Awesome instant support early on a Saturday. You rock.

Have you ever had any experience making your SofaRoster template work with Digg Digg. I may have to dump Digg Digg but I sure would like not to ….

Prem

feeleep

You welcome! As for DiggDigg – I’m afraid the answer is negative. To be honest, first time hear about. Gotta take an education minute :) However, if you talk about some WP plugin – simply give it a try, you can’t screw up anything. For a case CSS needs fine tuning – drop me a message, it can be done.

Hi,

I changed my background colour from blue to purple. However, the border around the grey part is still blue- I know I changed this before but can’t remember if I have to do it in stylesheet or over ftp. And how to do it?

Thanks, Claudine

feeleep

In “images” folder that can be found inside “sofa_rooster”, look up for 3 files: “topbg.png”, “mainbg.png” and “bottombg.png”. These are the files you probably have changed first time.
