What is the name of the font style used for “THE BLOG” logo
and I am trying to delete the primary menu after creating a custom one but it does no go away after removing the code in style.css. What am I doing wrong?
Bought this theme, tried to install twice, failed each time with the message: “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”
You have to unzip downloaded package and find theblog.zip file – this is the one to install. You will also find user manual there.
Hi, somehow the custom twitter widget for my blog completely stopped working. It doesn’t show any updated tweets. In addition, attempting to add another twitter plug-in doesn’t make any difference either.
Please update theme to the latest version and use twitter shortcode in text widget.
I did. Works great. However, when I try to add a second twitter shortcode in a separate widget, the first widget adds tweets from the second widget? Please goto www.judydouglass.com.
Yes, only one twitter feed can be used per page with this shortcode. Maybe you can look for some more twitter plugins.
Did. Many others cause some conflicts and doesn’t show the tweets as well. If anyone has some suggestion on a plug in that works, I’d appreciate it. Thanks.
You can try this one:
Simple Twitter Widget
Didn’t work. Created a fatal error. I used DP Twitter and that seemed to work. Thanks!
Can you please tell me if this template is used for a group/club, is there the capability to have a place to keep the group/club roster available on a page that would only be available if you had a login and password?
You can use it that way, but you willhave to use a plugin for this functionality.
Maybe you would want to look for some BuddyPress themes.
i love your Theme… But i have a Major Problem right now, i hope that you can help me! My Blog is under blog.xcee.me and everything ist fine… but if you go to Page 2 or older the Background Image is gone, same for the Slider… In every article the Background is gone too, do you have any issues why this can happen?
We have to take a look at it to say what could it be. You can send us a private message with login data.
Ok, cool! I wrote you an email…
THX! It was the Plugin -> Keyword Statistics
The theme is not responsive, does it ?
could u share websites using your theme, pleaz ?
Yes, it is not, but is looks good on mobile devices and you can always use reader button on iOS devices to get post content.
Here are some examples:
Can you add an opt-in form in the slider area?
You can use custom header html feature and add anything you want in header.
Love this theme but running into 1 problem when I combine with WP e-commerce and add a “products” page.
It appears the “advanced settings” are showing up on the actual product page – such as :
see example here: http://www.3dbuildworx.com/products-page/product-category/nut-bolt
Try checking your e-commerce plugin instructions about how to integarte it with theme. This theme was not built with e-commerce support out of the box, so some modifications according to plugin guidelines may be required.
thanks! again the theme is awesome and your response time is amazing!
Hi… Really great theme! Is there a way I can hide the @ replies from the Recent Tweets plugin?
Integrated widget does not support this. But you can try any other twitter plugin.
Hello, MNKY! First off, amazing theme – I really love it.
I just have one stupid question. I am still using version 1.1, but I really have no idea how to update to the most recent version. Could you shed some light on this for me?
Glad you are happy with our theme.
Sidebars and Menus might become inactive. Drag them once again to widget areas in Appearance->Widgets and set menus in Appearance->Menus.
Activate default wordpress theme
Delete old version of the theme
Upload new theme version
Press Reload XML in theme options
Delete contents of wp-content/theblog folder via ftp or hosting panel
Upload contents of updated theblog.zip folder
Press Reload XML in theme optiopns
Can you set the number of posts shown if you are using the blog style as the Home page?
You can set it in settings->reading, like in other cases.
I have two questions about the “The Blog” theme before i consider buying it. Is it possible to put a youtube video as post-image on the homepage (first page of my site), so instead of a picture/image it shows a video? Antoher question: i really like the theme, but is it possible to change the colours of the page so instead of the blue colour, i would like to have orange or white (http://themeforest.net/item/the-blog-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/1520543). I’m talkin about the lines en textcolourchanges?
And is this theme good for mobile phones? I saw that this isn’t a responsive theme, but if i use the WP touch plugin, it’s responsive right?
Is there a logo uploader, for the front page?
Hope to recieve some answers!
Yes, you can do it in both cases.
It is not responsive, but looks good on mobile devices, since almost all mobile devices are multitouch now, there is no real need in responsive site to read posts.
WP Touch will create a mobile site, not a respnsive theme, for our taste mobile site is much better.
But what is the difference between responsive and mobile site? Because i want my readers to see my posts clear and easy when they use a mobile. I understand that the video image is possible?
Mobile site is full featured mode for mobile devices with special mobile layout to display content and many other features. Responsive is just content resized to fit screen.
You can post a video in a post instead of image. In our preview these are images and content after, then comes wordpress read more tag, which can be set where you want.
Thanks for the explanation
Sorry, this is the last question: is it possible to upload a logo, not a header image, but just a smal logo under the homepagename?
Not sure what you mean, but yes, you can upload a logo.
Dear MNKY, i just bought and installed the “the blog” theme to my website and i get the following message:
Theme can not be installed because the theme misses the style.css??
“Het thema mist de style.css stylesheet.”
What to do???
Please unzip download package and install theblog.zip and also read user manual document.
I thought the theme had a social media like and share plugin like on your demo site? I want to have those like en share buttons under my posts showing on the homepage en postspage. Do i also have to install the social buttons you have in the header area?
You have to install AddThis social plugin for sharing buttons. Or any other of your choice.
When i upload the zipfile for the social buttons i get the following text:
“Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/beautyinlife.nl/public_html/beautyinlife.nl/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader.php on line 558
Het pakket kan niet geïnstalleerd worden. Er zijn geen geldige plugins gevonden.
Plugin installatie mislukt.”
What to do?????
- Why is it that i can’t see my website title en undertitle on my websites homepage? i filled it in and saved it. Is it because i uploaded a logo (isn’t it possible to show website title, undertitle + little logo image?
- When i’m making a post i set a image for the post (for the frontpage) but it does not show it on the homepage, why?? I tried looking for answers in the manual, but i could not find it.
- Maybe you are installing plugin, which is integrated already, check plugin list in tips&troubleshooitng section’s point 9. in the user manual.
- Logo replaces title and subtitle. You can add it directly to logo image and upload it as a logo.
- Theme does not use featured images, just insert the image in the beginning of the post.
Is it posible to make categorypages + subpages? Can’t find it in the manual. Cause now i made category’s that are shown as pages but the title keeps changing according to the category’s i link my post to. Maybe it’s possible to now show the title?
Here’s my site to look on: www.beautyinlife.nl
You want to disable title for category pages, is that right?
Yes. I don’t wanne see a big title above the postpage because there are posts on every page from different categories. This means that i don’t wanna see 1 categoriename on a page because there are many others on the same page from other categories. Do you know what i mean?
You can create a category style and tick ‘Do not show category title’.
When i used another theme a could simple replace the commentform. I would like the commentform first on postpages and the comments underneath it (otherwise it’s so difficult for the reader to first scroll all the way down. How can i simple change this?
I’m not in work computer right now, but you have to modify comments.php file for this.
Sorry for all the questions, but i’m not handy with compterstuff and just really want to write on my blog. How can i insert a slider on my homepage like in the demopreview? I also would like to know if it is possible to add advertisement on the homepage. Some theme’s have a special widget for this??
Just select post slider ir theme options/blog settings as a header.
You can add ads to header widget area or any other widget area of your choice. Use text widget to add your advertisement code.
