You didn’t pick the Home Page template for your home page. It’s mentioned in the theme documentation.

Whoop, whoop, pictures at last!!! Thanks

Would be great if you could still let me know where to find that folder with the sample content folder as unless I’m going blind which is quite possible, it’s not within the zip folder that I downloaded. Can u email me a link to it?

In the theme package you have downloaded from ThemeForest you can find the ‘sample data’ folder.

I’m asking you once again to remove the theme package and PSD files from your webserver.

I’m sorry for late reply, my son was rushed to hospital.

I’m such a novice to all this, so a lot of what you’re speaking about, I don’t understand. To remove the theme package from the web server do I need to go to my hosting account? If so I can get support from them to do that. What is the purpose of that by the way?

You have uploaded the whole theme package to your webserver (macaroniwood.org.uk domain, I don’t want to provide the full URL – you can contact me via an email if you need any details), so it’s available to everyone (ie. everyone can download it, so technically you are sharing it illegaly). To remove those files you need to login to your server via FTP – if you don’t know how to do that there are a lot of tutorials in the Internet, you can also ask your hosting provider for help.

Oh silly me. Not sure how that happened. Will get onto my webhosters straight away! Please email me at ingridmarsh at bt internet dot com all the info I will need to pass over to the hosters:)

What problems do you mean? Did you disable the WP-PageNavi stylesheet (you can find details in the theme documentation)?

Can you give me an example of one of your button shortcodes with a link? I am a novice at html.

Sure.
[button style="glass" color="darkcoffee" href="http://your-website.com"]Small Glass[/button]
You can find all available options (shortcode params) in the theme documentation.

I figured it out, thank you for all of your help!!!

Yeah, that is what I am using. I am trying to get a button in the top contact box (in the header) and I cannot get it to work. I am a Mobile DJ and I want to put a Client Login Button up there. It puts the button there but I can’t click on it.

In general you can’t put shortcodes in the header contact box. But if this shortcode accidentally works, it should work fully.┬áDid you make any modifications to the header template? Can I see your website?

You didn’t use the [button] shortcode, but the non-existing <button> tag. It won’t work.

If you need to put a button in the header contact box please pick one from buttons examples page, copy its HTML code and paste it into the contact box.

that is what I wanted to do but could not find the html code

You need to look into the page source. For example:
<a class="small-btn glass-btn" href="http://e404themes.com"><span class="red-btn">Large Button</span></a>
As you can see, it’s not easy to use – that’s why we did the shortcode.

By the way: please reply to your first comment, so we can track our conversation.

Can you urgently advise why the excerpts are not showing and the full post keeps appearing unformatted with the blog post?

http://booksnbrunch.com/blog? I’ve tried reducing the number in blog options under excerpts to 20 but it has had no effect.

Can you confirm also, what the optimum permalink setting is the the theme?

Would be grateful if you could also advise of the best plugin for mobile phones etc as the ones I’ve tried so far didn’t show the header.

Many, many thanks:0)))

On your blog page there is an excerpt displayed. In WordPress excerpts are not formated by default – if you want to change this behaviour you can for example use the Advanced Excerpt plugin.

To change the excerpt length edit the ‘functions.php’ file, find the following code:
function e404_excerpt_length($length) {
    return 9999;
}
and change 9999 to any value you need. You can also (and I recommend this) use the Excerpt field to create your excerpts manually.

You can set any permalink format you like – it has nothing to do with the theme.

I have only a little experience with mobile plugins, so I can’t recommend you anything.

Hi there, sorry to bother you. However can you advise which box in the admin panel allows me to change the colour of the box that goes from left to right and houses the text labelled Home, About, Events, etc? I’ve tried just about every box but getting myself into a pickle?

Also the bar that sits to the left of the word ‘About’ here: http://booksnbrunch.com/about-books-and-brunch/

Thanks sooooo much.

Do you mean the top menu background? If so, use the “Menu Background Color” option.

To change the color of a header left border use the “H2 Left Border Color” option.

Brill thanks – you’re always so helpful:)

Hi, how do I get the image in my post to reduce to a thumbnail size on the list of posts? I’ve tried ticking the box for including thumbnails as well as unchecking it and changed the height dimensions but to no avail:)

Please urgently advise:)

I’m not sure I understand you. On the single post page you can use any image size you want. You can use the [image] shortcode or just the HTML tag.

Hi,

Just purchased the Spicy theme, nice work by the way. Just wondering how to get the header menu to show. I had already created it, saved it, but don’t see it in the site’s header. Thanks in advance.

If you can’t save the menu location I suppose you have installed the theme in a folder with too long name, for example:
wp-content/themeforest-232982-spicy-theme-powerful-wordpress-theme/spicy
Am I right? If I’m right please rename this folder or (better) move your theme to the ‘wp-content/spicy’ folder.

Oh dear,

This is driving me a bit loopy now, because it’s gone even more wrong, I’m afraid.

Okay, when you told me previously, to amend the excerpt length in function php to get an excerpt of the text, that worked fine but left the picture still large on the left hand side of the excerpt as opposed to reducing it to a thumbnail size. So it had the excerpt for around five lines but beside it, had a full size picture as opposed to a thumbnail size to match the height of the test. That was the issue I was initially writing you about.

But now looking at it, the excerpt, is no longer working and it show’s the excerpt as the full edited post (http://booksnbrunch.com/blog/) with the read more at the end.

Now you have a full blog post displayed on the blog page. If you want to cut it you need to use the ‘more’ tag (you can read more about it here).

Suppose to say text not test:)

hi, love the theme! is there any way to change the blog to show whole posts? i adjusted the excerpt length in the “intro text box” section of theme options. but the thing is i want to post pictures with my blog post and have all of them seen at once without having to click “Read more.” i guess i can make one image a featured image and it will show up on the main blog page but i would like to have all of them show up. what can i do?

Edit the ‘index.php’ file, find the following code:
the_excerpt();
and replace it with:
the_content();
