The fact that the thumbnail is created from the FIRST item uploaded to the post is problematic. It’s not limiting itself to just images, so TimThumb is trying to display a PDF as a thumbnail for one page, and an MP3 on another… It doesn’t seem to differentiate.

How can I get this fixed? The search results and archive pages appear to have lots of “broken images”—but it’s just because timthumb is trying to display a non-image file.

Also, I sometimes select an image that was previously uploaded, not uploaded directly to the post/page. These don’t show for thumbnails. Please help me resolve these issues.

— Betsy p.s. I tried to register on your forums, but it signed me up somewhere else, and I couldn’t get back to your wp university forum. very confusing!

theMOLITOR

Sorry the forums were confusing for you. Regarding the issue you’re experiencing, did you try deleting the PDF from WordPress and reuploading it? This should “reset” what it thinks is the first image.

Hi – thanks for replying. No, I did not delete the PDFs to “reset” it, because there isn’t actually an image on these posts. I hired someone to modify the code so that it doesn’t display that placeholder image for posts that don’t have images.

But some of these do contain MP3s or PDFs, and they display a big ugly broken image box.

It shouldn’t be trying to make thumbnails out of media other than images. Any solution for this? Thank you!!

UPDATE —the developer who helped me before updated first_image.php for me and it’s all good now. If you want to get his udpates for a future update, let me know. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has struggled with the way the thumbnails worked.

theMOLITOR

Glad you were able to solve your problem.

I’m considering this theme. I would like to have the “slider” images on the main page independent of the “featured posts” to the right. I’d like them to be a series of images that auto rotate through. Would you consider this as a feature request?

theMOLITOR

At this time I have no plans to add something that extensive to the theme. However, this may be a future feature.

does this work with wordpress 3.0? do any precautions or changes need to be made – besides backing up the data – before upgrading from wordpress 2.9 to 3.0?

thank you.

theMOLITOR

Yup, it works on 3.0. Nope, no precautions necessary for the theme ;-)

Hey there!

We’ve had the modified WP-University Theme running since the beginning of this year. Love it! Everything worked fine until the last few months.

Started noticing that when we upload or insert images, some image thumbnails show up on the home page, while other times there is a broken link, or the default thumbnail shows up.

Everything we do to simply show the image correctly only ends up in a broken thumbnail image or the default thumbnail showing up.

Any idea of what we may be doing wrong or what might be causing this?

I’ve gone in and set up a few test posts, and all I’m getting is the default thumbnail showing up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

When viewing the image, I get the following message…

“Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 25165824 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 10368 bytes) in /home/content/a/g/a/agape12/html/wp-content/themes/wpuniversity/scripts/timthumb.php on line 293”

Try increasing the memory of your WordPress install. Here is more info… http://tinyurl.com/bu8tt9

Hey bro,

Thanks for taking a gander at the issue. I suggested to the site “owner” that he drop in images that are much smaller and with no formatting in his blog posts (just to ensure nothing interferes with TimThumb).

I got that same error too and I felt it could have been a memory issue. Glad you confirmed.

I think the real issue was posting images that are too high of a resolution. I think that was what was causing TimThumb to “freak” and not display the thumbnails correctly. Not enough memory…

Thanks so much!

Hi,

Is it translatable? Via codestyling localization plugin or PoEdit?

theMOLITOR

Plugins should work just fine, but I didn’t add anything specifically for translating the theme.

Hi there,

Firstly, thank you for offering such a great theme. It was exactly what I needed. I have 2 issues, though, and wanted to check if you could help:

1) I cannot make the titles or desciprions of images within gallery to be displayed below the image.

2) I have downloaded the WPML Multilanguage plugin but when I activate it there are only options to include the language options on the sidebar or footer. If I select either of them, the whole sidebar layout is broken. I would like to add them next to the current date at the top left side of the site. Could you tell me how I can I them there?

Thank you in advance, Rosi

theMOLITOR

I’m glad the theme fits your needs ;-)

1. Are you referring to the WordPress “insert gallery” feature? Displaying the title for gallery items isn’t a design approach I took with this theme.

2. Unfortunately I cannot provide support for plugins. Hope you understand. I recommend you use the appropriate support channels for the plugin you’re trying to use.

Hi,

Regarding point 1 – yes, this is exactly what I am referring to. Could you suggest a way to display the image titles below the thumbnails within a gallery?

Regarding point 2 – I will try to get advice from the plugin developer. I thought you might be able to give me a direction as to where should the code for the plugin be added, so that it appears at the top left.

Kind regards, Rosi

theMOLITOR

Did you try entering text in the “caption” field of the image? That should work since it’s a default WordPress function.

hello, i am new to wordpress and i just purchased this for small school..i was able to upload and install everything all right… now trying to change menus on the front but not sure how to delete unwanted or change and add new… as i said i am just a helper and school ofcourse doesnt have money so whatever help i can get would appriciate it ..thank you

theMOLITOR

You can control the navigation from the “menus” section, under “appearance”. For detailed instruction, check out this article: http://tinyurl.com/2623vq6

thank you..now i got the hang of addoing pages and menus…but still cant replace the original one…. also have the following msg… Your theme supports 0 menus. Select which menu appears in each location. i am sure its something simple.. but dont know much technically… is there anyway to contact you.. i know prob toomuch to ask.. but any help would be appriciated.. thank you

theMOLITOR

You can disregard the 0 menus message.

okay created the menu that school wants.. but how doi replace the existing one? thank you

theMOLITOR

Not sure what you mean. Per the help file, navigate to “Appearance” > “Menus” and create a new menu with the name “Main”. When you’re done, click “Save” and your new menu will appear on the front-end.

OKay thank you…Its working now… ofcourse now off to footer.. somehow i managed to lose the example one with contact info..so ofcourse struggling to recreate that…

Hi themoliter,

I have the issues listed above fixed, thank you for your support.

I have 4 more things to ask you:

1) Where could I change the size of the thumbnails within a gallery?

2) How could I show the post category for each post on the page with all posts listed? I want to add it next to the Date.

3) How could I show paging at the bottom of the Post Category pages?

4) Where can I change the months titles, which are displayed on Archive sidebar and the date at the top left of the site? My site is in Bulgarian and these are the last 2 things I need to translate. The rest is done, but I couldn’t find these two items.

Thank you once again, Rosi

theMOLITOR

1) The size of the slider images are controlled from “index.php” in the div with class name “image_thumb”.

2) You need to add a category function to the template files. For more info: http://tinyurl.com/lleqc3

3) Check out this plugin: http://tinyurl.com/59kwmq

4) The date in the top is controlled from “header.php” within the div with id “topBar”. Regarding the sidebar, I’m not sure what you’re referring to. If it’s a widget, you’ll need to access the core WordPress files.

I just purchased the University Theme. How do you get the Images to display for the Featured Posts on the homepage?

Also How do you see the thumbnail images for posts?

Thanks

theMOLITOR

The update is now available!

Great, how do i update to the newest version?

theMOLITOR

Visit your downloads page on Theme Forest to download the latest theme files. Then you’ll want to replace the old theme files with the new ones via FTP . If you made any changes to the old theme files, be sure to make note of them and apply the changes to the new files.

Be sure to consult the updated help file for additional details and notes about new features ;-)

I just get a blank page when activating the theme!

theMOLITOR

That’s strange. Blank pages are a notorious WordPress issue and could really mean anything from hosting issues to plugin issues. As you can see, the demo site is working just fine, so it doesnt appear to be a theme issue. I’m here to help, but I need you to check and make sure this is a theme issue before I can jump in. Please try reviewing these articles to make sure this isn’t something else: http://www.google.com/search?q=wordpress+blank+page

Hi,

I was wondering how I can add a video on the featured slide images with a play button and a thumbnail like your instruction video on the theme. Please let me know soon. Thanks.

theMOLITOR

That’s just an image I made for the featured image of that post. You can use the one in the demo site if you like.

Hi,

I purchased this theme and installed it, but something seems to be missing, because it is a mess on my website http://actionodc.com/ I have no idea what to do?

theMOLITOR

Please follow the setup instructions in the user manual.

Will this template be able to built a 2 language (chinese & English) website? Will Chinese characters/letters work for the Calendar page/the site?

Many thanks!

theMOLITOR

There aren’t any built-in language options, but I’m sure there’s a plugin out there for that…

Hi,

What/where should i change to make the homepage slider change automatically?

theMOLITOR

Thanks for purchasing!

That currently is not a theme option.
