Hi there – one more quick question. How can I add social icon buttons to this theme? I would like to add black and white ones for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+

Hello Heather,

you can add any Javascript based widget to the Theme by putting its code into the appropiate field in the theme options (see the documentation).

For html based things you need to change the code manually.

My Tag Cloud doesn’t appear to be working. It is just showing up as a box in the sidebar that says Tags. I have several posts with tags so I am confused as to why they are not showing up in this section.

Thanks, Kristen

Hi! Loving the theme so far! I have a question though, I’ve noticed some other users who purchased the theme were able to “shorten” their text posts on the “home” section, and added a “read more” button that links to the full post. The specific example is this http://5minaday.com/. How can I do that?

Thanks!

Hello jmunozdebaena,

thank you for purchasing my theme.

The “read more” function is built into the tumblr dashboard itself.

When you create a new post you have the options above the “Post” textfield (where you can choose bold, italic text and so on).

The second option from the right is what you are looking for. Everything you type before that option will be seen on the main page, then the read more button appears. So just type what you want “above” the read more button, click that option and then finish your text.

Hey guys, whenever I try to install this theme, I just get a bunch of text on a white screen. Then when I close the HTML theme box and try to view the actual page, It just says [HOME] on the upper left. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong, but any help would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks!

Hello MediaLoaf,

thanks for purchasing the Theme.

What you describe is something that can happen depending on the texteditor you use and its settings. It can be easily fixed by opening the theme with another texteditor, like Dreamweaver or notepad++ for instance.

Squared,

THANK YOU ! I tried using another text program, but had the same problem. Opening in Dreamweaver did the trick. Thanks for the quick reply. Awesome theme by the way!

Glad i could help, enjoy the theme!

One more question. I thought I had it figured out, but it didn’t seem to make the desired change. I have increased the width of the main post area. Is there a way to increase the max-width of the images that are posted so they take up the entire post box? Let me know, Thanks.

squaredWeb

Hello MediaLoaf,

the max-width of formatted images inside tumblr is 500px. Thats why almost all tumblr themes have this width as content width, including mine.

You can change the max-width 500px from images to their original size by replacing {PhotoURL-500} with {PhotoURL-HighRes} inside the posttypes code, but in doing so the only control over the images dimension you have is what you post, which means you would have to manually crop all your images to your desired dimensions.

I hope that helped.

Sorry to keep asking questions, but once I get this fully running properly I’ll be out of your hair I promise.

The “Latest Articles” portion of the theme forever says Loading. Nothing ever seems to pop up in there. Any fix ideas? Thanks again.

squaredWeb

Hello MediaLoaf,

no problem at all, ask anything you need to know.

In order for the Latest Article widget to actually show your content you need to set it up properly in the theme options.

Please see the point C) Activating the Latest Article Widget in the Documentation file.

Thank you very much

Hi there,

Here is a screen movie of the issue I am seeing in my dashboard.

http://www.screencast.com/users/thedpoint/folders/Jing/media/1b0098fc-dc77-4eef-af21-2cdca8e4922b

Despite the fact that there are 5 notes that have been left as test posts from viewers, I am unable to see them.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Hakim

Hello thedpoint,

thank you for purchasing my theme.

Since this is in the dashboard of tumblr and no other customer ever mentioned something like this im sure it is a tumblr issue.

In order to check if it is you could install any free theme and then check the notes again, but like i said, no theme actually influences the dashboard, so it has to be a tumblr issue.

Squared, How exactly does the search bar work? No matter what I search it seems to come up with 0 results. Here is the page if you want to check it out. Thanks.

squaredWeb

Hi MediaLoaf,

it doesnt, the searchbar is Tumblr code and it is bugged since ages. Until tumblr repairs it, im afraid there is nothing i can do. That is why i implemented the option to hide the searchbar.

Squared, I wanted to say thanks again for the theme, it looks great. I was just wondering if there is a way to limit the number of tags in the tag cloud. Mine is getting a little out of hand. Thanks.

squaredWeb

Hello MediaLoaf,

im happy to hear that you still enjoy the theme. Regarding your question, at the moment this is not possible – when i did the theme i thought it wasnt neccessary since i thought people would like to show all tags anyway instead of only e.g half – but it is planned for a distant future update.

However if you like i could show you how you can manually add only the tags you want to show.

If this is an option please contact me via email and ill send you the code.

Hi! I bought the theme, it looks amazing. Thank you for creating it. I am trying to activate the latest articles section. I read the documentation but I still can’t find the proper section where to make the changes. my url is www.gamingflag.com or gamingflag.tumblr.com Many thanks!

squaredWeb

Hello fizz4m,

thank you for purchasing my theme. Im happy to hear that you like it.

In order to activate the latest article widget you have to open the theme options panel and find the custom field which is labeled “SiteURL”. There you have to enter gamingflag

If you have any further questions pelase dont hesitate to contact me again.

Have a nice weekend, squaredWeb

Squared, Since we’re pretty much best friends now with all the questions I ask I figured one more couldn’t hurt. I’m trying to add a link to the Navi section, but it seems no matter what I put in there it wants to go to the /tagged/example page rather than the page I enter in the Navi = ””. Is it possible for me to add a custom URL to the header or does it only link to tags? Thanks for the help in advance.

squaredWeb

Hi there ;)

Please send me an email about this and will send you instructions on how to achieve this.
