Hello,

I’m currently using a website that was based off of ZillaPress but with many customizations, so my web developer discouraged me from simply updating to a new version of ZillaPress.

My problem is I want to add adsense to the 468×60 banner space to the right of my logo in the header. However, in the version of ZillaPress that I’m using I can only add a link and image within the theme options.

I’ve tried to modify the code so that adsense will show up in the banner space, however without any luck. So, I’m looking for some code suggestions to enable the theme to show an adsense banner in the header .

Thanks!

awesem

Hi MBR12,

thank you for your query regarding our ZillaPress theme. Your developer is right and you shouldn’t simply upgrade your theme as you would lose all your customisations. You would have to merge your changes into the latest release using e.g. WinMerge.

If you only want to display Adsense at the top of your site then this should be a simple change in header.php:

<div id="banner-header">
   PUT YOUR ADSENSE CODE HERE
</div>

You need to make sure the banner is enabled in your theme options.

Please let me know if you experience any problems with this.

Thanks

hey great theme, got no problems during install and setup! exactly what i wanted! short question, i couldnt find any answer here.

how can i change the featured image of each post. i need it link to the article too.

thanks for help and keep on working this great theme!

awesem

Hi Melonlabs,

I hope you are well and thank you for your query. We are pleased to hear that you like our theme and that you didn’t experience any problems during the install and setup.

In regards to your question, you can set the featured image directly on the post as shown here:

http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

Please note that this functionality has changed significantly in WP 3.5 and it’s much easier now compare to how it was done before.

Let me know if you experience any problems with this.

Thanks

thanks for answer and sorry for my bad question.

i need to know what to change in the theme php files to turn the featured image of each blog post preview into a direkt link to the post. at the moment you only could access the post page with click on read more or the headline, the picture is no link to the post. how to change this? the featured image should link to the post.

thanks

awesem

Thanks for clarifying this and I see what you mean now. You could try wrapping the image in a link as shown below:

<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php printf(__('Permanent Link to %s', 'framework'), get_the_title()); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail('thumbnail-lead'); ?></a>

You need to change this in index.php on Line 29 where the_post_thumbnail is output.

Please note that I’ve not tested it but it should work in theory :)

Cheers

thanks for fast reply, i found the search.php the line:

<a title="<?php printf(__('Permanent Link to %s', 'framework'), get_the_title()); ?>" href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail('thumbnail-lead'); /* post thumbnail settings configured in functions.php */ ?></a>

and replaced it with the line 29 from index.php i changed the div in class=”post-thumb” to use the outline effect. thanks for your code, i will use it!

last problem now, i cant find the right line to replace it too, but if i use the categories to filter my posts. the featured imaged lose his link again.

awesem

Yes, the category page (archive.php) also doesn’t have the link around the featured image in Line 55. Just add the link around like in the two snippets above and that should solve it.

Kind regards

how do you disable the “by author” hyperlink on each post that is posted?

awesem

Hi Mngo888,

I hope you are well and thanks for your query. In order to remove the “By author” link you need to amend the following files and remove the code below:

>>> index.php, archive.php, search.php and single.php:

<span class="author"><?php _e('By', 'framework') ?> <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?></span>
<span class="meta-sep"> | </span>

Please let me know if you experience any problems with this.

Thanks

thanks but i already figured it out myself…...P.S you really should sort out your support cos waiting for 10 days in the forum support is not on. I’m still waiting for a member of support to sort out another problem, 2 days after i gave him my WP login details.

awesem

Hi mngo888,

I hope you are well and apologies that you had to wait such a long time for the support. We’ve had a very busy start to the year and we were struggling to stay on top of the support. We’re almost back on top of it all and I’ve just recruited another two support analysts to help us provide high quality support again.

The fastest way to get support is our forum as we now have five support analysts monitoring the forum at different times.

Thanks again for raising this.

To anyone interested in buying this template. I am extremely happy with this template, i think I have used it over a year, maybe two. The developer is so amazingly attentive. I am saying this because I almost purchased another template from another developer today for a different project. I read the comments and customer are upset. I have never had this problem with Awesome. I have to be honest, I have bugged Olaf, he’s is pretty awesome. So if you are interested I highly recommend!!!

awesem

Hi Toni,

thanks for the kind words :)

I’m pleased to hear that you are still happy with our theme and support after the two years you’ve been using our ZillaPress theme.

I am trying to provide a consistently high level of support. I am fully aware there were periods where we were slow to respond due to our workload. To overcome this in future, we’ve added another three support analyst to our team this month in order to keep up with demand so that we can continue to provide a quality service.

Kind regards

I’m trying to change the RSS feed in our theme and just realized there should be an options page – for some reason we’re not able to access the themeoptions.php page; it says You do not have suffiecient permissions to access this page. I’m an admin of the site so I don’t understand why it won’t allow me to access this page. Someone else did some customizations on this and we’re not longer in contact with that person. I did take a look at the themeoptions.php file and it says is_adminn; I tried to change it to a lower level user but it broke the site so I just left it at is_admin. I also tried to update the theme to the current version but it still gave me the insufficient permissions error. Can you help me figure out how to access this page or even to change the feed to our feedburner feed? Thanks so much!

awesem

If you only want to change the RSS feed URL then you could consider doing this directly in the database if you are familiar with e.g. PHP My Admin. The value is stored iin plain text in the _options table and you could simply change it.

In regards to the problem with the permissions, I’m not entirely sure what might be causing this. It could be related to your customisation. If you would like us to look into this then please feel free to request a quote via http://www.wpcustomize.it or http://www.awesem.com/tweaky

Please let me know how you get on with this.

Hi awesem,

Can we expect a responsive version of this great theme? If so, when?

Hi petres_007,

I hope you are well and thank you for your suggestion of a Responsive version of our ZillaPress theme and we’re pleased to hear that you are getting on well with it. We would love to make it responsive but right now we don’t have the resources for this unfortunately. I will add it to our list and we will consider it when we have some breathing space again.

Hello Sir, If I buy your theme, would you or your support help me to make custom boxes for the widgets? I want to have corner rounded boxes in light blue background.

Just like this one: http://unbounce.com/blog/

Please let me know.

awesem

Hi ProJDM,

thank you for your query. Regarding your customisation, you could try adding a radius around your widget div like it’s done on your example site:

-moz-border-radius: 5px; -webkit-border-radius: 5px;

I suggest you inspect the CSS on that site using Chrome and this should show you how it’s done. You can also have a look at this website which generates the code for you:

http://border-radius.com/

If you need any help with the implementation you should have a look at Tweaky who can assist you with this.

Please let us know how you get on with this.

Kind regards

Hello Awesem, One quick question, the theme is not showing featured images, how to enable them?

Thanks.

awesem

Hi ProJDM,

you can enable the featured image slider on the homepage under Appearance > Theme Options > Post Settings > Show Featured Slider

In regards to featured images on the single post page, you need to check this option on the same settings page: “Auto-insert Post Thumb”

Please let me know if you experience any problems with this.

Hello,

I purchased this theme last night and I’m loving it. Only thing is I’m having difficultly with the featured slider.

I have a large archive of posts and I dont want to have to go through all of them and set a featured image for a thumbnail to appear in the carousel. Is there a way to add a piece of code that will pull the first image attached to a blog and use that instead?

awesem

Hi elysebogacz,

I hope you are well and we’re pleased to hear that you’re loving our ZillaPress theme :)

In regards to your images, that’s a very common problem and there are a number of plugins available that can help you automatically generate these, e.g. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/easy-add-thumbnail/

Please let us know how you get on with this.

thanks i was able to figure it out but adding a function in the function.php file an If statement in the featured.php file.

Do you guys plan to update this with a mobile version of the theme? I didn’t realize it wasn’t responsive when I bought it. The web portion of it is exactly what I want and i love it, would just be nice to have a mobile version as well.

awesem

Hi elysebogacz,

a number of people have asked us about responsiveness for our ZillaPress theme and we are now starting to consider this. We won’t be able to do this immediately but it’s certainly something I would like us to do by the end of June – depending on other commitments of course.

Please let me know if you have any further queries.

Thanks

Hi! How do I add a photo to the author, contributor and other user. Thanks

awesem

You can have a look at creating Gravatar.com accounts for your users. The avatar image should then appear automatically and it’s based on the user’s email address.

How can i change all blog font? I know, it’s in syle.css but where exactly? and how?

Hi Shateiel, I hope you are well and thanks for your query. If you search your style.css file for “font-family” then you should find 9 occurrences for the different fonts used in the body, headings, captions etc.

Hi Olaf,

Hope you are doing well. I have two questions. First question is when I upload a photo to the blog. I only have four choices, small, med. large and full size. Medium is 200×300 Large is 682×1024. Medium is too small while Large is way too large. How can I create a mid range that won’t compromise the pixels. Also, I would like to add an author photo to each post. Right at the top under the title of the post, where it currently says the authors name. I believe it use to add the photo but after one of the updates it stop showing the author image. How can I have the author photo/image display on each post. Thanks in advance.

awesem

Hi,

I hope you are well.

You can define your own thumbnail sizes in functions.php and every time you set a featured image it will create an additional image in your custom size.

In regards to the author image, it should already show the Gravatar below the post as you can see here with our AWESEM logo:

http://www.awesem.com/zillapress/andrew-mortons-biography-of-angelina-jolie/

If you want to show this at the top then you need to move it in your single.php file.

Kind regards

Olaf

TheFashionistaChic

Olaf my question is NOT regarding the featured image. I am talking about when I insert a photo in the body of the post. What do you mean by functions.php? I would like the photo to be larger than 200×300 but smaller than the largest selection 682×1024.

Thanks in Advance

awesem

Hi,

in regards to regular images inserted into your post, you could create the image in the size you want and then insert the original sized image or you could crop it within WordPress:

I have been using your theme for a couple years. Just updated to Wordpress 3.6 and carousel on home page does not work. Is this a known conflict? Or is there something else wrong?

awesem

Hi paketo,

Thanks for your query. It sounds like you are getting a Javascript / jQuery error which prevents the slider from working correctly. I suggest you check your error console to see what the problem might be. Our theme should work correctly with WP 3.6 and we’ve not experienced any problems on our demo site which runs on WP 3.6: http://www.awesem.com/zillapress/

If you need help fixing your Javascript errors then please feel free to contact our customisation partners over at Tweaky for a quote.

I am running an OLD version of your theme. I don’t think I purchased it via Themeforest because I don’t see it listed in my downloads. I created the website it’s running on in June 2011. Is there a way I can upgrade my theme? The old version is causing problems with a plugin that requires newer jquery. Thanks.

awesem

Hi paketo,

Thanks for getting back to us on this. Unfortunately we don’t have any other means of making our ZillaPress theme available other than via the downloads section when you purchase the theme. If you no longer have access to the account you used a couple of years ago then you will have to purchase the theme again from ThemeForest to get future updates. On the bright side, we will be extremely grateful for your continued support :)

Thanks

Still a great theme but it should really include the recaptcha by now within contact form template. When adding a recaptcha form you need to edit the contact php of the template as otherwise you have two forms displayed. It’s a pity that this way I can’t use the nice contact pages of this template.

awesem

Hi JimmyJam,

Thanks for suggesting to add a captcha which we will consider for a future release. In the meantime you can have a look at plugins such as GravityForms or Contact 7 which have built in Captcha functionality.

Kind regards
