Hi,

I am considering this theme but to be frank the design looks quite dated. This could have been a design to go for in 2010 but now it is 2017! Are there any ways to spruce this design some way or other, for example, adding a landing page (with no menu, header , footer and side bar : something you did for custom log in screen) , more animation options, more slim and minimalist looks (like Boroda theme) , some more lay out options to break the boxy look of typical ‘blog’ , etc.

But I must agree here that this is one of the best ‘blogging only’ therme out of 50 odd themes I checked.

Hi, I appreciate your quick response. As I said in my earlier post, yours is the best theme as far as blogging I concerned. But apart from blogging , I do have two other things to display on my web site, My services: Training , consultancy , so I need a landing page with three buttons/ small images to select Blog / Training / Consultancy. Your answer is rather disappointing (and curt!) while suggesting me to look for alternative! I have some programming background , so know that it is possible by tweaking some code here and there and was expecting a a bit positive reply from you.

Anyway , for blog only yours is the best that’s why I wanted it to work for my requirements.

Wishing you the best.

Hi, these thing can be done using BuzzBlog theme. If you’ll have a problem how to do it we can help you. It’s not a problem.

Hi,

stupid question: how can i make a post to have the featured tag on it? :)

thanks!

update: I was referring to the feature badge for posts :)

Hi, open up the post page.

Look towards the right hand sidebar where you will see a Publish box. Look at the (Visibility: Public) field and click edit. Check the box to make the post Sticky and publish it

In a vertical display of the smartphone, the plain text logo it is not reduced and remains too large. I tried to insert the CSS code @media(max-width:480px){ header .logo {width: 30% !important;} } but it only reduces the tagline and not the logo http://prnt.sc/ebzptm How can I do? Thank you, best regards.

Thanks for your prompt response and for the help provided. I tried in every way to do what you told me, but nothing has changed. While changing the font size remains the same throughout. Excuse me, thanks for your cooperation.

Hi, I’m always checking my anwears so believe me it works. The only explanation is that you are using some caching plugin and you need to delete the cache. Or just delete the temporary internet files and clear the browser cache.

Yes, you were right! The indication was right, I solved the problem, thank you. Thanks also for the beautiful theme, now even more beautiful and packed with features, my website has managed very well!

Can I place ads in posts? Since the many updates? If so, how?

Hi, I sent you an email.

hello. I love the blog. Nice and clean and just what I was looking for. I do have a question. In the top right corner is the navigation toggle menu that opens in the left side of the screen. Where do I go to populate that? When I click on it the only thing that opens on the left is a blank area with a search box. Please let me know. Thanks a lot.

Hi, we are using this area to display the mobile menu and you can put there widgets as well. Just drag some widget to a “Side panel” widget area. To display menu go to Appearance -> Menus, open or create some menu and under the Menu settings area there will be Display location options. Select the Mobile menu option. Lastly if you want to show this area only on mobile go to Appearance -> Theme Options -> Navigation -> Side panel and select Yes .

Hi. The post types in your demos don’t seem to change. Picking the options without the sidebar and full width don’t seem to make a difference? I’m keen to see how they look. Thanks

Hi, I am having problems with the theme. Things change from the way I set up the teme. If I am working for example in the footer, when I save the changes, something new appears on the menu, and if I am working on the menu and save, the social icons change. It’s exhausting! I checked the plugins! Please, help.

Hi, there is now way that it works like that. Only you must remember that when you’ll change some option in some section in Appearance -> Theme Options panel, then when you’ll switch to other section and click save button, it will save options from current section and from all other sections as well.

Hi, how can I delete the like (heart) from the blog home page? Thx.

Hi, you can put this css class:

.home span a.hercules-likes {display:none;}

in Appearance -> Theme Optoins -> Theme styles -> Custom css code

Please, where can I change favicon?! Thanks! :)

Hi, you can do it here: Appearance -> Customize -> Site Identity -> Site Icon

Thank you for your answer

Hi,

Is there a way to disable sidebar on single blog post page? I know we used to be able to do it, before the update. I don’t see that option anymore.

Hi, edit post and there will be the Sidebar option section under post content editor. Select the third icon.

Thanks :) I never scrolled down to see that!

Hello, I love your blog theme. Just a few questions before buying:

1. Can we add social media icons and contact info into the mobile slideout menu?

2. Is it possible for the Footer Row to have 3 to 4 Widgets columns?

3. Is it possible to add a Slider/Carousel such as Slider Revolution should that be something we want to add at a later date?

4. I want to add my phone# and email above the logo so when people are viewing in mobile they can click the phone# or email address. Is that possible to add a top menu bar area?

5. Is there a Page Builder (eg. Visual Composer)? eg. The About page has multiple columns and rows: http://thebuzzblog.hercules-design.com/about-me/. Just wondering if that is achieved using a page builder or just manual shortcodes.

Hi, 1. yes you can.

2. You can switch to three columns

3. Of course you can add it but carousel is bundled with the theme and it’s present for instance here: http://thebuzzblog.hercules-design.com/listpost-fullwidth/

4. Yes it’s possible there is a widget area.

5. We are not using any page builder to create columns but only built-in shortcodes.

I would like to have a different source image when users click the pin it button on the featured image for any given post. I have premade Pins that are hidden in the code, which I want to be the only option to pin.

I believe I have the correct code, but can I add this to custom css, or do I need to modify the source code? Here’s what I have for the change.

Of course there is a way but only if you would like to redirect the function to the same image for each post. However if you would like to redirect to different photos for each post, there is a problem, because how are you going to point these pictures?

Yes, I thought the same thing.

1. What about including a second picture as an option to pin? 2. Or can I add some specific code within each post that points to the Pin?

It would be difficult because in wordpress there is no option to upload the second photo to the post. Maybe this plugin will help you https://wordpress.org/plugins/pinterest-pin-it-button/screenshots/ It seems there is an option to enter the url of the image to be pinned

Hi, I am interested in your theme, can you please tell me if the search function is included or another Wordpress plug-in will need to be purchased? Thanks.

Hi, of course it’s included. Take a look at the last menu item – “Magnifying glass” icon :)

Hello. I tried to install the theme and received the following error message. Do you have any advice on how to fix it? Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Hi, I responded to your email yesterday. Check your spam box. Here is my message:

Hi,

I’m sure that you made a common mistake. Unzip on your computer hard disk downloaded All files & documentation package and install the theme from the buzzblog.zip file instead of the All files & documentation zip package.

Also I encourage you to read the documentation. Unzip on your computer hard disk downloaded All files & documentation package. Open the file named BUZZBLOG-user-guide.pdf. It’s under “Documentation” folder.

If you would like to show the featured image and text, this is the default behavior of the theme. From the other hand if you have on a single post page, image on top, it will be displayed in the post summaries. You ask why? This is because a lot of people complained that the text is stripped from all meta tags in posts summaries.

If you want to change that, you can go to Appearance -> Editor and open theme-functions.php At the very beginning of this file there will be this line of code:

return ’<script>,<style>,
,,,

    ,
    ,
  1. ,,

    ,,<video>,<audio>,

    ’;

Here you can remove the allowed tags in posts summaries. To remove images just remove , tag.

oh, another help. if i want to do this tweak on the child theme, where can i go? Hercules_Design

Hercules_Design Author 3 months ago Flag

So just go to child theme dorectory, create a new folder. Name it “includes”. Copy theme-function.php file from the parent theme and paste it to child theme includes folder. Also make sure to use the child theme included in the the latest theme version. ::::::::::::

now after new update i cant find this line of code:

return ’<script>,<style>,
,,,

    ,
    ,
  1. ,,

    ,,<video>,<audio>,

    ’;

can u help please?

another note: creating a new folder named ‘includes’ and copy the the-function.php file from parent theme and paste it to child theme includes folder doesnot work. any is the name of file only function.php or heme-function.php?

strange! the codes doesnot appear here!

Hi, Yes it won’t work because to load this file we are using get_template_directory function. Please just edit it in the parent theme. This function is at the top of the theme-function.php file.

thanks. i was wrong! i was just searching function.php. that is solved at last.

but there is some other error. i dont know if this is the feature of this theme or error. i cannot explore the menu/ catagory from mobile begining last few updates. even at desktop, there is some thing in the upper right corner, when i click it, a white part appear at the left side of site. my site is rifathasan.info.

2. i want to use a regular style block-quote, not the huge sized quote of this theme. how can i use that? i want to use like this one: https://scroll.in/article/831067/canada-courts-terror-tag-for-bangladeshs-main-opposition-has-implications-for-its-ruling-party-too

Hi, 1. This is a side panel and mobile menu in one and you can put there widgets. as well. To show there menu just assign your menu to Mobile menu Display Location under Menu settings . You can also disable side panel on desktop here: Appearance -> Theme Options -> Navigation – > Side panel

2. To change the blockquote appearance navigate to Appearance -> Theme Options -> Theme styles -> Custom css code and paste there this css code:

blockquote { padding: 40px 12px 50px 12px; margin: 30px 0px 30px 0; border: 0; font-size: 23px; line-height: 36px; text-align: center; font-style: italic; position: relative; color: #888; }

For any further assistance please renew your support time.

Hey Hercules, how can I hide side panel?

Hi, you can do it here Appearance -> Theme Options – > Navigation -> Side panel. Please explain me why you do not have the purchased badge next to your username ?

Hey, because I’m using another account to buy themes (company account).
