Hi,

You can use custom menu widget for it, place it in header widget area.. And hide left menu with CSS.

So it is possible, but with little customization.

Thanks!

How can I add posts within a page? I have few pages and would like to add post directly within each page. I can’t seem to add it specifically. Please help. Much appreciated.

Hi,

You can add categories as pages and menu items in Appearance/Menus.

If you need post feeds on pages, use Blog Post shortcode.

Thanks!

I would like post feeds on pages just like the live preview version. I’m very new to this. Can you recommend a good plugin?

In live demo these are category pages. Asign your posts to a category and add this category to menu in Appearance/Menus.

For home page, in Settings/Reading choose Your latest posts option for the first page.

Thanks!

Hi, Do you update the theme?

I’m just wondering, already using the theme for long, but this just crossed my mind.

And if so, where do you post the changes log?

Hi,

Yes, it is due to licensing terms.

Hi, I’m trying to change the writing mode in posts and pages, to “visual” instead of “html”, but I couldn’t find this option in the Wordpress settings or Theme settings. I’d be thankfull if you could help me.

Hi,

Probably it is a plugin, our theme does not alter default editor in any way. Also it can be wordperss installation issue.

Thanks!

Hello, I’ve just upgraded to Wordpress 3.8 and now custom Cufon fonts integrated into the theme seemed to have stopped working. Any idea on how to fix? I reuploaded the theme but that didn’t work.

MNKY

Hi,

We are also running WP 3.8. on our demo and cufon works fine.

Probably you should try disabling plugins.

Please contact us from purchased account for further support.

Thank you!

Hi, I love this theme. I have a question about Social media Widget in the top Widget Area. How can I personnalize the email (@ icon) ? Thanks a lot Fab

MNKY

Hi,

You can leave email field empty for icon not to show up.

Also you can use 6 custom fields to add your own custom icons.

Thank you!

Hi,,,

Is there are any option for posting advertisement also.

Thanks:)

Default-user

Thanks For your Replay. I Need To Know That Can You Integrate Linkedin If I Buy This Theme.

MNKY

Probably yes, because theme is just a skin, if we talk in general terms, functionality comes from wordpress. So you should look how to integrate it with wordpress, depending on what you mean by integration.

Thanks!

Hello! I’m having some code problems with the template. I have this template on my blog and I purchase for it because I know how it works…

I can’t see the home slider, and in ‘Post Slider Options’, when I save changes, there’s a message on the top of the page saying: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /homepages/22/d453639604/htdocs/todophalaenopsis/wp-content/themes/theblog/functions/recent-posts-slider/recent-posts-slider.php on line 73

I have uploaded once more the template files, just in case it’s an installation problem, but I have the same error… Can you help me?

Thank you for your time!

Default-user

Hi,

I have my personal blog with this template for three years now, and that’s the reason why I purchased for this template for my work, because I know how it works.

I checked the Theme Settings and Slider Settings with my blog’s settings near by and I can’t find something wrong. Can I give you access to the WP dashboard?? If it’s a PHP problem I don’t know how to fix it…

I tried deleting the template and installing it again, but the problem persist. I put this time the background, PSD files, etc. inside The Blog folder. And The Blog folder in my host like this. I think it’s well installed.

Thank you

MNKY

Sure, you can send it in private message.

Thank you!

I just sent you an email to fix this!

Thank you for the support and your time

Just want to say congratulations to The Blog. Great Theme. Maybe, consider to make the menu in sidebar scroll with content to let users handle it easier while reading

MNKY

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback, appreciate it :)

It is easy to do, just add this to the end of the style.css file:

menu_background {position:fixed;}

Best Regards

Did you forget to paste?

MNKY

Ooops…

#menu_background {position:fixed;}

Hi,

It looks perfect. One stupid question remains: is it possible for users to register?

Best regards

MNKY

Hi,

Registration is enabled under General Settings in the admin panel. “Users must be registered” is enabled under Discussion Settings.

But for some ‘real’ functionality use user management/registration plugins.

Thanks!

Hi mate,

It’s damn perfect!! I can’t find the shortcode for the offer slider?

I woud like to use the offer slider on my homepage as a custom header (theme options>blog options).

Cheers.

MNKY

Hi,

It is also set in theme options. If you want it for page, choose it in header options (top right tab) when editing the page.

Thanks!

My (home)page isn’t a static page (it shows latest posts). That’s why I don’t have the top right tab to insert the offer slider. Better said: that’s why I don’t know where to choose the offer slider as header.

Then I found out the possibility of manually inserting the offer slider in the custom header (theme options>blog options). Is there a shortcode? Or another way?

Once again: awesome theme!

Default-user

Thanks. It works (of course)!

- In your preview website of the theme you managed to use three dots (...) in the postslider’s excerpt. Right before where it says ‘Read more’. How do I do this? I can’t find the right templatepage or stylesheet to insert the three dots.

- I can’t find the template of the custom widget tag cloud. I’d like to change the maximum number of tags. Could you please tell me how I change this?

Thanks again, lol. Sorry for all the questions. I think these are my last questions ;-) For real

MNKY

Hi,

1. You can use wordpress excerpt field to enter text you want. If it is not enable, while editing post, press screen options on top right and enable it. Then add a text to this field, like this:
Cras lobortis pulvinar felis nec accumsan. Duis rutrum elementum felis, ac dapibus metus ornare sed... end

2. It is in functions/widgets/tags.php

Thank you!

Default-user

Hey MNKY, thank you very much! All fixed.

Hi,

I want to make settings like that preview website. Background, colors, etc.. all the settings will be same :) how can i do that? If you have got a xml settings, I will upload that xml to settings.

Thanks..

MNKY

These are same settings as demo – colors, bg, typography etc.

Now just create your posts, with your images and add some widgets to footer and header, if you need them.

Thanks!

How can i taken widgets for bottom and header and which?

MNKY

Go to Appearance/Widgets and drag widgets that you want to widget areas.

Thanks!

Love this theme! Is there a way to customize the appearance of the social media icons? We would like to use a custom header image with a darker background, and some of your icon colors won’t show up. Thank you!

MNKY

Hi,

You can use your custom icons (Last 6 in the widget). The social media widget allows up to 6 custom icons per widget.

Thank you!

Hey guys. Tried using your support forum to submit a ticket but it seems specific to Aperture and, in any case, it wouldn’t allow me to open a ticket. So, I’m submitting my questions/issues here. :-)

1. Most importantly, on both my Nexus tablet and my HTC DNA phone second level menu items are not accessible. That is, I touch the primary navigation item on the site (www.songsfortheuniverse.info) and no second level menu items appear. This of course is a very significant problem. 90% of the pages on my site are inaccessible on these devices.

2. I installed a full width background plugin called ILC Allground which I’ve used before on other themes many times and with success. When activated, the fallback background image (for mobile devices) would not extend all the way to the right of the screen. It’s as if the theme’s sliding sidebar (which I deactivated) were preventing the image from filling the screen. The plugin developer added some CSS to his plugin on the site that seems to have fixed the problem, but he had the following to say:

“I’ve patched your site adding a css in Settings > ILC Allground. The theme has some corrupt styling somewhere and while I can’t figure out exactly where, I noticed that the body and html, for example, have a width of 980px instead of grabbing the full width available. If you have support for the theme, you should ask them to check it.”

3. Lastly, sorry if you answered this question in a previous comment, but do you have plans to update this theme at any point? Despite how long it’s been since your last update, it’s been a real pleasure to work with, but I’d still love to hear that you plan to continue to improve it. :-)

Thanks guys!

Hi,

The support for the blog theme is provided here:

1. 3. We do have such plans and the issue 1. will be fixed in that update, as we have plans for mobile menu.

2. Fixed widths are needed for theme layout. As theme was not built with responsive in made at that time, this is why same styles apply for the mobile phones. This is why plugins require their own styling instead of depending on theme styles.

Thank you!

Default-user

Thanks for the response, guys. Any idea when that update will be avaialble? And, in the meantime, do you have a temporary fix for problem #1? Being able to access sub-menus and site pages on these android devices is kinda critical.
