What would it take to make a child theme for this, or would this be not be possible with this theme?

What elements of the theme would not be able to be changed with a child theme, or which changed, not sure which is limiting the capable changes?

Just starting to learn more about the nuances of themes and this may be a silly question if I knew more.

Thanks.

Hey,
It doesn’t sound stupid to me at all, because to be honest, I don’t know much about child theme.. To be honest , I ‘m afraid that I can’t help you on this one..sorry

Well, maybe I won’t be able to use this theme directly since I am running multisite and looks like I should actually be using child themes for modifying my subsites. I did find a great beginner description of where to start with child themes though. Maybe this will help me understand them better. Have a look: http://op111.net/53/

Hey, I guess you can do a child theme of Zine. Greetings

Hello, nice theme. I am installing the Zine theme in my virtual server, befor installing it in real web and i’ve a problem with the stylessheet that is dinamically generated to display the fonts, and colors, etc. is called “bd-custom-styles.css”. It’s not working, we can not see any font (only default times). I’ve tried to insert a .htaccess because of the url rewritting sistem of wordpress, but it’s still not working. Some idea? (I can modify myself the stylesheet to put into the font that i want to but it will be the last emergency solution.) Many thanks.

BrutalDesign

Hey, it is difficult to me to say what’s wrong if I can not see your website source code. But maybe you’re doing it wrong with the htaccess. Wordpress has its permalink structure feature that work fine..Why do you need to add/modify the htaccess file? maybe it is what it cause the issue. Regards

Hey,

First off great job! But I was wondering if there was a way for me to add more types of social media.

For example, in the theme options under social, you list a ton of places like Facebook, Twitter, etc. I was looking to add to that list.

I’m plenty confident in my programming, I just don’t know where to look and don’t want to waste my time.

Thanks!

BrutalDesign

Hey,
To add your own social icon, first add your png image in images/social folder. This image must have the name of your social profile (e.g : mynetwork.png) and must be 32px X 32px

Then you will have to configure it in two files in the includes folder: theme-functions.php and theme-options.php.

In theme-functions.php at row 280, add the following line :

 'mynetwork' =>  array('root' => ''),


In theme-options.php at row 660 add the following:
array( "name" => "mynetwork URL",
        "id" => "bd_mynetwork_url",
        "type" => "text",
        ),

I hope it will help

Hello, I just have two questions.

1. How do I increase the advertisement up the top longer and not stay 468 X 60 , I wish to make it larger.

2. How do I change the background because it is stuck on a black background only, I have even tried static colours and background image from “Style” at theme options. It just stays the same grey background.

BrutalDesign

Hey

1. Actually, these are recommended dimensions but you can upload an image with any size and then adjust the header height and the banner top margin in the theme options panel.

2. Can you pls give me the url of your site?

Hi,

I have uploaded the entire Zine folder as is but am currently getting the message “zine Stylesheet is missing.” when I go to install it.

All the folders are uploaded especially the CSS folder and files, I have tried deleting the whole Zine folder and reuploading so I am stuck.

I am up to date on latest Wordpress.

Does this theme allow you to have a list of archived reviews within a page, I.E. user clicks restaurant reviews and the main body contains new reviews in upper main body while lower main body has best restaurants and to the right of the main body is a list of all restaurants reviewed for that city with clickable links. Is this doable?

Hey, I purchased this theme to use for a tech review site. Is it possible to change the review categories (books, movies, music, games) to something else? Because the things I’m reviewing don’t have publishers, directors etc. I would like to customize it to fit the items I’m reviewing. Is this possible? Thanks

hi BrutalDesign ;) is there any way to make some blog posts full width? it is the only thing I miss with this template/demo page

BrutalDesign

Hey, you can create a full width blog page very easily by duplicating the blog template and remove one line in the file.
Feel free to contact me if you purchase this theme to know how to do exactly.
I hope it will help.

Default-user

I don’t want to make all blog posts full w.

well, I liked the theme – but this option is mandatory

what file do I need to edit to change the size of the thumbnail image in the movie reviews. it is currently 220×300. I just need to make it a little taller

BrutalDesign

Hi, You can change the movie review thumbnails dimensions in the functions.php file at row 47:

'review-thumb' => array( 220, 300, true), 

Change the values to suit to your needs. You will have to re-upload your featured images, so wordpress will be able to re-crop the pictures with the new dimensions.

I hope it will help

one last problem im having is when you press read more on the reviews it goes to the 404 error page

Hi,

There is something wrong with your URL . it starts with “blog/movie-review” and it should be for exemple “movie-review/penelope-cruz-2/” without blog.. Can you pls send me your login info through email? i will take a look.

By the way you can change the slug (“movie-review”) to something else in functions.php at row 85.

Cheers

You should create a HTML -version of this. I would buy it instantly.

Hello,

Thank you very much for this awesome theme. I’d like to use the plugin WP Post Views to display the number of views under the title and next to number of comments, name of author and date, but I don’t know where to add this function : <?php if(function_exists('the_views')) { the_views(); } ?>

May you help me please ?

Thanks.

BrutalDesign

Hey,

The function that displays the post infos (date, comments etc..) is in includes/theme-functions.php starting at row 200 (bd_get_post_links()).

You can add the line if(function_exists('the_views')) { the_views(); } at row 241, after echo $html

I didn’t tested it but maybe the best would be to include the function in post links the container by adding the following after row 238:

 ob_start();
          if(function_exists('the_views')) { the_views(); }
          $html .= ob_get_contents();
         ob_end_clean();
Default-user

Mmh.. I tried your tip but it doesn’t run :(

Default-user
My apologies, it works very well, here is the function I used to make it work, if someone needs it : Just after this block :
$html .='<span class="blog-link">
                '.$write_comments.'
            </span>';
Insert this :
ob_start();
        if(function_exists('the_views')) { the_views(); }
            $html .= '<span class="blog-link">';
            $html .= ob_get_contents();
            $html .= '</span>';
         ob_end_clean();

And replace

$html .='';

which is below the first block under the second block, in order to have the views inside the meta data of the post.

But when i activate the theme, i have this message:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_theme() in C:\Program Files (x86)\EasyPHP-5.3.6.1\www\wordpress\wp-content\themes\zine\framework\bd-core.php on line 65

Any idea why?

Hi again,

I would love to put out every shadows on every text…should i look in the css?

Cheers

Tony

BrutalDesign

Hey,

Add the following code in the theme options CSS box (style tab):
body, .dark body, #mp-primary-menu, #mp-primary-menu ul, .default-menu, .light #main-container {text-shadow:none!important}

It should do the trick
