I’m releasing a preliminary version of the ThemeMeme Aperio Prototype, the theme I orignally previewed under First Look: ThemeMeme Aperio WordPress Theme.

I’m calling this version a protoype because I consider it experimental; it’s still a little rough around the edges. I painted myself into a little bit of a corner by posting a preview before the theme was ready. I felt pretty confident about my initial ideas, but I encountered problems executing the design and some of the WordPress functionality, and this theme just doesn’t realize what I was after. I’m still mulling it over and I expect to come back to this theme at some point with fresh eyes and stronger skills, but I’m going to let things cool for awhile.

ThemeMeme Aperio Prototype requires WordPress 2.3.2. It is built on Sandbox for power and flexibility and has been tested in Safari, Firefox, and IE 7. It should also work in IE6, but some of the formatting and effects are sacrificed.

Special Thanks

I want to give special thanks to Thin & Light, who wrote a custom function for me to display excerpts on the next and previous posts. I also want to thank everyone who commented on the first look with suggestions, especially Eli Foner and Darryl Hutchison.

Demo

Here’s a demo of ThemeMeme Aperio Prototype.

Installation

To install, open the ThemeMemeAperioPrototype folder and upload the contents of the plugins folder to your wordpress/wp-content/plugins directory. Upload the themememe_aperio_p folder to your wordpress/wp-content/themes folder. Then open your WP Admin, activate the plugins under the Plugins tab, and select the ThemeMeme Aperio Prototype theme under the Presentation tab.

Plugins

ThemeMeme Aperio Prototype uses two plugins, which are included in the download. They are highly recommended, but not required. The plugins are:

  1. Gravatar (not required if you’re using WordPress 2.5 or above)
  2. No Excerpt-P

Note that the gravatar plugin uses a generic gravatar if the commenter doesn’t have one. You can change this by editing comments.php. Find this code:

and change it to this:

For more information, see WordPress Gravatar Plugin.

Generic Aperio Prototype Gravatar

I’ve included a generic gravatar in the theme directory, gravatar.jpg (pictured above). To use it, move this image to your images folder and add the path to comments.php.

If you’re using WordPress 2.5, a default avatar is included in WordPress. If you’d like to use the default avatar above, upload it to your images directory and add the path to comments.php. Find this code:

echo get_avatar( get_comment_author_email(), '60' );

and change it to:

echo get_avatar( get_comment_author_email(), '60', '[path to the avatar]' );

Tips

Here are a few tips for customizing the theme.

“About” Text

You can edit the “About” text in sidebar.php.

Excerpts and Categories

Things will look better if you have actual excerpts for your posts, and they’re fairly short. Also, it’s best to assign one category to each post and to use multiple tags.

Sandbox

ThemeMeme Aperio Prototype is built on Sandbox, but I’ve edited the theme files so you can’t simply use the style.css file in ThemeMeme Aperio Prototype to style a standard Sandbox installation. Be sure to read the sandbox.html file in the themememe_aperio_p folder for more information on customizing Sandbox.

Featured Posts

ThemeMeme Aperio Prototype features your latest posts on the home page. It will display post images if available. The images should be larger than 456 x 300 pixels and the preview will show the top left detail. The latest post will be featured in the top left on the home page. To add an image:

  1. Go to Custom Fields near the bottom of the Post page in your WP Admin.
  2. Under Key, type: post-image.
  3. Under Value, type the url for the image, e.g., http://www.themememe.com/images/post-image.jpg

Here’s an example:

Adding a Post Image

Links Page

If you want to use the links page, you should look at your code and clear every fourth category in the styles.css file. Under /* links */, change li#linkcat-7, etc. to li#linkcat-[number of category].

  3. Thanks, guys. I like the home page, which was the starting point for the whole thing, but I fell out of love with the rest of it. I think I’ll come back to it eventually and the inside pages will look completely different.

  4. hi – great theme but the Featured Posts part of it does not work. image is not displayed?

    1. Go to Custom Fields near the bottom of the Post page in your WP Admin.
    2. Under Key, type: featured-image.
    3. Under Value, type the url for the image, e.g., http://www.futurosity.com/images/avatar.png

  19. Wow! I saw that you were working on this via twitter and it looks amazing. Love the homepage and the ideas for the inside pages… I would love for the home page image to be displayed across the width of the single post rather than remaining on the left in a small size.

    Not sure how that would work behind the scenes…

    Sometimes a post could just be lots of images… and sometimes not with text on top of them (just thinking as a photographer)…

    Anyhoo — love where you are going with this :-)

    Reply
  20. Thanks, Deb.

    You can use the same image in the single post. Just create an tag in your post for the same image, or add multiple images. They should resize to the width of the post.

  21. Robert,
    I’m using this theme for my personal blog. I love it! Thanks for all the great designs. I use futuroisty eos for another blog of mine The Co-LAB One thing I just noticed on my recent post with Aperio, which included two different types of embedded videos, is that something changed the style of all the text below the videos, it affected the “sidebar”, “add comment” and “browse”. Weird?! See this post if you’re interested.

  23. Robert, this is brilliant… sends shivers down my spine when I see such design!

    Noticed an anomaly that appears in Safari but not Firefox. It’s in every instance of Aperio I can find in use (including the demo). The jpeg at http://www.tassels.ca/images/AperioAnomaly.jpg shows the issue at the lower right of each box. Any thoughts?

    And again… love your design work!

    Reply
  24. @Justin: I think the problem is because the width of the videos is wider than the post column. You should be able to change the width of the embed code. Also, make sure that you’ve copied and pasted the embed code properly. If you missed a closing tag, for example, the embed will still show up but will throw off the layout.

    @josef: This is very odd. When I look at the demo in Safari and Firefox, I don’t see any problem at all. But I see what you mean from your image. Do you have a test blog set up somewhere that I can take a look at? Are you on Windows? (I’m on a Mac, but that shouldn’t make any difference. Odd.)

    Reply
  25. Thanks Robert.

    I’m on Macs and have noticed at home (Powerbook G4) and at work (PowerPC G5). Safari v 3.0.4 in both cases but one’s on Tiger the other on Leopard. My test blog is http://josefstevens.com As noted I checked this against several other Aperio installations I found on a google search and it’s always the same.

    Cheers!

  33. Robert. Excellent theme. *almost* perfect for what I need.
    I was trying to use your older futurositymag theme, which was great in many ways, but got lost in customizing it.
    if you want a suggestion, I really like the way futurositymag kept the top posts at the top of the page no matter where you were. it was a great way to keep a site with lots of categories ‘accessible’.

    Reply
  37. re: Perfect
    Very subjective naturally. ‘Perfect for me’ would involve too much of your valuable time.
    The thing I loved about this and futurositymag is that they don’t focus on a linear ‘latest post is best’ blog-centric theme. My clients tend to have too much going on to have the latest post be what they want their customers to focus on. A more ‘pick and choose’ works better, like this quite awesome theme.
    Like I said, I like the -mag version’s upper block of clickable posts on every page and I’m going to try and modify this one to do something like that. If I get there in some elegant way, I’ll let you know.

    Reply
  38. Thanks again for the feedback, Alec. I’ll mull it over and maybe something like that will work its way into a future theme.

  39. Hi Robert –

    I’ve just discovered your WP theme work over the last few days, (from Skelly’s “best of” list) and all very unique and beautiful designs – but….You absolutely have to “finish” the Aperio design, the front page is such a beautiful and artistic and singularly original touch in the WP themes world that the internal pages beg for something closer in aesthetics and originality. ( I do like them – especially the category block view – but something still seems to not quite “match” the brilliance of the index) Great work though, and look forward to watching your stuff evolve! Best..:-) irh

    Reply
  40. Thanks, irh. I have every intention of coming back to it at some point, but I’m not feeling very inspired at the moment. But I agree, the inside pages don’t fit the home page as well as they should. They feel a bit too heavy to me.

    Reply
  41. A very good theme! Compliment!

    But i have a little question – How can i change yellow-background-color?

    Note: If you open a archiv-page in the IE, the page-logo have an onther height and width as normal.

    Reply
  42. Thanks, Christoph.

    To change the hover color, open style.css and find this code:

    .home .post-content:hover{background-color:orange;}

    Change “orange” to whatever color you want.

    I’ll check out the IE bug if I ever come back to this theme, otherwise I’m not planning any updates. But thanks for the heads up.

  43. Thank you!

    I think it is one of the best themes ever which be ever made for wordpress. Look – this theme have more than any other wp theme a very big capability. It’s the first which can photos integrate by showing, looks more than good and is very flexible.

  47. It should be easy to add posts to the home page. Just open home.php and find this line:

    < ?php query_posts('showposts=7'); ?>

    Change showposts=7 to showposts=[replace with the number of posts you want to display].

    I have been looking for exactly this theme for 4 months… I knew what I wanted it to look and feel like and youldn’t start my blog because I couldn’t find a theme like that. Thanks a lot!
    I am very new to tweaking themes, so please forgive me my rookie question: how do I change the Aperio-Logo in the header and replace it with my site’s name? I’ve been really scanning the header.php but didn’t get anywhere.

    Thanks so much for your support!

    Changing the header image is easy. Just replace header.jpg in the futurosity_aperio_p folder with your own image named header.jpg.

    Robert, is there a simple way to accomplish the look Paul has gotten on the pages, ie – relative to the sidebar and wider area for content…or is a code idiot going to be in deep trouble?

    Beautiful work across the board!

    Reply
  55. Ian, making the content area wider and changing the sidebar is relatively easy to do, but not simple to explain. Assuming you know a bit about CSS, you’ll want to look at the style.css file and play with the widths under the /* =single */ section. These are the selectors that affect the single post pages. You’d also have to change the selectors under /* =sidebar */ so they don’t float next to each other. Experiment until you have the layout you want.

  64. Robert Ellis: Thanks for a great theme. I’ve been playing around with it the last couple of weeks for a soon-to-be-launched website, and I encountered exactly the same problem as Netaudio did.

I’ll put up a link when my site is ready for take-off. One thing, though: the search results page has got a different layout than the rest of the theme. Lately I’ve been trying to make it look more like the pages you get when you run them through the categories.php template, but when you’re a trial-and-error guy like me you easily get lost among the div tags. Where should I start?

    echo count($words);

    When I saw the front page of the theme I thought it would be perfect for my new photoblog. However, the inside pages are indeed a bit heavy and have very narrow columns. Not suitable for a photoblog but perfect for a magazine layout. I can’t wait to have some time to start tweaking it :)

    I hope you will continue working on this theme because I haven’t seen such a great theme in a long time.

    @Anne: I think you’re right. Aperio doesn’t know what it wants to be on the inside. If I find the inspiration, I may redesign it in two flavors: as a photo blog and as a magazine-style theme. I’ll be interested to see what you come up with. Let us know when you’re done tweaking.

    Everyone else: thanks so much for the positive feedback. I’d almost forgotten about Aperio, but perhaps when I catch up on some other work I’ll come back to it feeling more inspired.

  81. I love this theme. Can you make a videoblogging-centric theme?

    Personal choices for videoblogging theme:
    – Three column theme.
    – Content column at least 500px wide so it can have one 480px video.
    – 1st sidebar that has thumbnails from previous episodes.
    – 2nd sidebar that has some news and categories.
    – search and other stuff can be in the footer.
    – Much like the Aperio theme, it is wide instead of long.

    I would love to see you do this.

  89. Alec, you’re right. Lists aren’t styled. You can add something like this to style.css:

    .entry-content ul li {list-style-type: disc;margin-left:32px;}

    The list-style-type can be whatever you want: disc, circle, square, etc. You can also change the margin-left to whatever you want.

    When I release a redux version of this theme (this is just a prototype, remember), it will be based on Blueprint CSS, so there will be default styles for everything not explicitly styled in the theme.

  96. jens, did you change anything in the tag.php file? Everything works in the demo so the problem isn’t in the theme. You might try installing it again.

  97. Hi There,

    First of all – THANKS for the great beautiful Theme…
    I tried to translate it to Hebrew (Israel) – and It’s really working good, but just in FF. When IE scan it to all goes to the right – can you help me with this one please?
    thanks!

    Reply
  98. eVi, I’m seeing the same problem in Safari. It looks like you’ve made a lot of changes to the code and I can’t really tell you what the problem is. Look at your CSS for the container or content selectors. You may have changed something in the alignment there.

    Reply
  99. I installed it again, but no progress. Used the original tag.php file from your zip.file.

    any ideas?

    Reply
  100. Hi again, I installed everything from the begeining, but it’s still looks the same problem (I ckeared the cache)…..

    Reply
  101. @jens: I’m stumped. Are you using 2.5? I can’t think of any reason why your tags shouldn’t be working if they’re working here on my demo site.

    @eVi: Again, I’m stumped. I have no idea what would be different using Hebrew. It should work since the layout is supposed to be centered even if you expand the width of the window. I’m really sorry I can’t be more helpful.

  102. Great template and easy to work with. Still messing with galleries and how to make them fit the tight columns on the post pages, but overall super pleased with design and function of the theme. Thanks for the theme!

    Reply
  103. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, this is a fantastic theme…

    But there are some trouble with the theme on tag and category pages:

    In IE7 the logo gets resized so it doesn’t look good :-)

    In FF the preview images don’t resize on the tag and category pages, which also make them look kind of wierd.

  104. Maybe this open source to do the trick towards the problems I stated above: http://www.darrenhoyt.com/2008/04/02/timthumb-php-script-released/

    Reply
  105. Thomas, I’m not sure what you’re talking about. When I look at the demo in Firefox everything looks fine. And there’s no reason for IE 7 to resize the image.

    Reply
  106. It was just that the images act differently in the two browsers on the tag and category overview page.

    And that the header.jpg got squeezed in IE on the tag and category overview page.

  108. Robert, for this (Aperio) theme, could you tell me which classes to edit to make the main content area slightly wider?

    My goal is to put two medium-sized images side by side, allowing users to view the full image in a lightbox window.

    Also, is the font used in the image (logo) at the very top Helvetica?

    I’m loving this theme, a million thanks for creating it and all of your others :)

    Reply
  109. Nick, to make the content wider, open style.php and look for this:

    body{background-color:#fff;color:#444;margin:0 auto;width:928px;}

    Change the width to whatever you want.

    The font in the logo is either Helvetica or Helvetica Neu, but any bold sans-serif font should look fine.

  115. Hi Robert,

    thanks for your answer. I’m trying to use the built-in gallery feature o wordpress 2.5 by clicking the “use gallery in article” feature in admin section. in the backend a post there’s just a [gallery] showing up at the point where i want the gallery to be shown. in frontend with your template it doesn’t show up. if ic change the tempate to wordpress default in 2.5 it does show up. So i was wondering if there’s maybe something missing in your template that makes the gallery show up?

    Would really appreciate your help. Here’s my site: http://www.schnitzelban.de/

    Thx

    Reply
  116. Christian, I haven’t played with the gallery feature. It may be a while, but I’ll try to find out what’s going on. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    Reply
  117. Christian, I’ve looked into the gallery issue and I can’t see any reason why it shouldn’t work. I’ve tested it on my localhost and it works fine with Aperio.

    Check that you’re using the [gallery] tag properly. Read Using the gallery shortcode on the WP Codex. There’s no tag that needs to go in the theme for this to work.

    Good luck!

  119. Hi. Great theme. Just what I’ve been looking for. I’m going to have a go at using it and maybe playing with it a bit.

    Typographically it reminds me of the modicus theme from upstart blogger, but better use of images. This seems to have nicely structured HTML and pretty easy to understand templates. Thanks.

  120. Thanks, Dan.

    There’s a reason theme reminds you of Modicus. You do know that I designed the Modicus theme, right?

    I’ve gotten a little better since then, so the code in all of the ThemeMeme themes is cleaner than the themes I released under Upstart Blogger, with the exception of ThemeMeme Magazine, which is a real mess.

  130. Hi Robert,
    Im somewhat complete with my modification of the Aperio theme. Ive cleaned up the post pages but I kept much of the structure as you designed it. Included a big plug for you on my credits page.
    http://kre8.tv
    btw, This site is awaiting first stage copywriting but the design is I believe fully functional now.
    also, I noticed a bit of unnecessary code in the template pages with many elements hidden with display:none in the css like the prev/next navigation for category and archive pages. Is there a reason that’s there that I dont understand? Maybe its to do with sandbox, of which Im not familiar? Many thanks for layout, it was a great starting point for the kre8tv.

    Reply
  131. Looks great, Isaac! Very clean.

    Yes, there is some extra code in the templates. Aperio is based on Sandbox, so I leave the code in there so people can use it if they choose to. If you want to use it, just unhide it in style.css. If you don’t want to use it, you can probably safely delete any extraneous code.

    To make the height of the comment text box bigger, open style.css and find this:

    #commentform {background:#eaeaea; display:inline; float:left; margin:4px 0 0 4px; padding:10px; width:340px;}

    Add something like height:300px;, or whatever you want the height to be. That should do it!

  183. @kaffern: If I understand correctly what you’re trying to do, then yes, a custom field might work to replace the post date with a performance date.

    The pages and child pages are controlled by the tags in the theme files. Check the WordPress Codex for instructions for changing the tags.

    @Jason: You don’t need to use page breaks. Just use the Excerpt field under Advanced Options on the Write Post page in your WP Admin.

    Hope that helps!

    To change the number of posts on the front page, open home.php and find this line:

    Change showposts=7 to the number of posts you want to display.

    That’s it!

  190. @Nils:
    Maybe adding a second custom field like ‘post-image-hover’ could do the trick? After adding some code to the theme offcourse. Try in post-image.php adding:
    onmouseover=”document.imgname.src = post-image-hover value” in the image tag. imgname is the name of the image you might have to add. You’ll have to call post-image-hover the same way as post-image is called.
    Give it a try, it’s a guess.

    ciao

    Reply
  203. I really, really love this theme. I’ve been looking around for years and the front page is the most unique and functional I’ve come across. It’s a little tricky to customize, but it’s going to be well worth it.

    I know you say you can’t offer advice for customization, Robert, so no worries if you don’t have the time to answer:

    1. Is there some way to adjust how the post-image is aligned (ie. from left to middle)?

    2. Is there a simple way to show at least one of the sidebars on the front page?

    Reply
  204. Oops.. I realize number 1 isn’t clear.

    What I meant to ask: how can I make it a top middle detail of the post-image instead of a top left detail?

  206. A friend pointed out an odd bug at my site (uses Aperio) that occurs in IE. I recall testing the site pretty thoroughly with a few browsers, and I never noticed this before. At first I thought it was due to a change I made to the theme, but it happens in the Aperio demo as well.

    When you click on a category, tag, or archive period, the header img is squished, and the preview images are no longer composed of the top left detail, but rather are made up of the entirety of the previewed image. This doesn’t occur with a search.

    My blog is also displaying an odd smiley face at the bottom left of the category/tag/archive pages. It looked like some kind of hack at first, but it’s odd that it’s only showing up on the same pages that seem to be displaying incorrectly in Aperio default itself.

    Any ideas?

  211. Rob, great theme. First round with it I got frustrated and quit. Decided that I needed to make another go at it, and modified it to what I needed. Let me know what you think. Also working on my header/menu a bit more but can’t come up with anything creative at this point. Too busy I suppose.

    Reply
  212. @TL – You need to remove the last two lines in the ie.css file within the /css folder. That allowed my header to display properly. Not sure how important those two lines are in particular however, this resolved the header issue for me.

    Reply
  213. @Steve: Hey, thanks, that’s it!
    Well, almost. Now the images are in their original size. Take a look at my this page in Internet Explorer: http://www.eeuwigweekend.nl/category/cartoons/

    Reply
  214. @Menno – I see what you are saying. I think personally I would prefer to see an image at full size (partial of the image that is) versus a cropped image that looks pretty bad on the category/archive, etc. page. For me, I may leave the image to be displayed there, but remove the white date and place the date information on those pages, in the meta section (middle).

    But yes, those two lines are affecting the header on those specific pages. I haven’t looked into this further, but perhaps the naming conventions could be modified to accomidate the header on those pages within the ie.css and the actualy php page from the theme.

    Reply
  215. First of all, thanks for the great theme.
    I’d like to display pagination links (next/previous posts) on my homepage. But links like domain.com/page/2/ always diplay the recent 7 news. Is there a way to modify this and make “previous posts” link work?

  216. Will this theme support WordPress 2.5 or higher?

  217. One more problem that I recently discovered: Images look crispy on IE7, although they look OK in Firefox. I think they are somehow being resized and Firefox renders resized images smoother.

  229. Hey Rob!
    At first, OF COURSE, I have to say: Congratulation. You did it, you created one of the most desirable layouts I’ve ever seen. I got over UpstartBlogger to ThemeMeme, and after being quite impressed with Modicus, I finally found Aperio – well, this was it for me.
    For a while now I thought about reopening my homepage again, so I looked for layout ideas. I discovered Aperio and immediately knew: I don’t want an own layout, I want this one. So this is actually the only reason I chose WordPress.
    To cut a long story short, tough I’m quite well versed with CSS and HTML, I don’t know anything about PHP at all and that’s the reason I couldn’t change a lot (I wanted to have the blogroll in the sidebar and to turn the orange hover effect on the start page into another color). I’m not asking you for help (tough maybe other readers could give me some tips), I just want you to explain my poor knowledge of WP. But I got to install and use everything perfectly, no problems anywhere.
    This layout is simply beautiful. Thank you a lot!

  231. Hi!

    What a wonderful theme. Thank you!

    I’ve been trying to determine how to make the post-images center, middle for the category page.

    The top left is often just too blank with the 450 x 350 images.

    I found the post-image.php, the function, and the sanbox as well as the “preview” css but just don’t see where to add the “center middle” or otherwise appropriate code to ask the theme to please center the images, and use the middle of the image.

    Can you please help?

    -Find some place to insert adds.

  264. Hi, Robert. I’m using your theme on my site. I’m learning piece by piece what stuff each CSS value changes and added a few custom classes for use in Q&As and photo captions. But that’s beside the point.

    I’m not sure if this approaches the kind of customization you don’t want to be bothered with, but is there a way to make the two sidebars stack vertically? And is there any way to add them to the front page?

    Anyway, I’m really enjoying this, and for all its flashiness, it still loads up much faster than the site under my old theme. Kudos.

    Ok, another question. Is there a way to put links to your pages somewhere on the front page? I’ve tried putting it in header.php but it looks awfully clunky. Ideally I’d like to add two (or more) jpg’s next to the main banner for each page. Is that possible to do?

  281. Great theme, I’ve modified it quite a bit but love the image and excerpt display on the front page. Thanks for sharing!

    Someone might’ve touched on this before (didn’t have time to read all million comments!! ) – the only problem I had with IE was the last two lines in the ie.css file (which smash the images on the archive pages), I just added a div (#archive_image) around the content area and added that in front of the code so that it only applied to the content area and not the whole page:

    #archive_image .archive img {

    And the other issue is that IE6 doesn’t read max-height or max-width… on the line

    .archive .preview, .search .preview {} it has the archive images set as a max height and width which doesn’t really seem necessary. I added a width:”” and height:”” on the end and it was fixed!

    Hope that makes sense! Thanks again, can’t wait to see where you take all of these themes- they’re very cool!

    I’m using it at the moment and adjusting it to my own preferences. This is all fine, except the links to the posts when I’m using a little flash intro.

    Do you have any idea how I can modify the link on the post-image (so it doesn’t reloop the page) (see http://www.paulvoncken.nl for the example/more explanation)

  323. Really great theme, been implementing it and was wondering if there was a way (i’m sure this issue has come up before) to have a link in the excerpt that takes you to an outside site. Right now any a tags in the excerpt breaks the div. Or even if there was a way to make the excerpt click to the outside link.

    If you have to click to the post then click the outbound link that should work, just wondering if any one has a solution… Thanks again for the theme, really sweet.

  331. Hey!

    First: Great work, Aperio is one of the coolest themes for WordPress!
    I am wondering if it is possible to include a 468px Banner on the upper right side next to the Aperio logo?
    Is there any easy-to-do modification?

    And is it possible to include a list of maybe 8,10 posts, that are not diplayed with an image just as a textlink to have the possibility to show more posts on the frontöpage without making the page too big?

    thank you,
    1mal2m

  342. I just found this theme and love the layout but was wondering if there was a simple way of setting up page navigation. I was hoping to use the “WP-PageNavi” plugin but any advice from an experienced user would be extremely appreciated. Just to recap, I would like to be able to navigate back and forth between pages beyond those shown on the front page.

  350. Hello!

    I recently downloaded this version of your template and i love it. it’s beautiful; but i wanted to change the header above to my logo. i tried this but once i activated the template with my logo i received a wordpress error that stated the css was either missing or broken?

    Secondly, i’ve been having trouble with the images i upload, showing up on the front page or on the side panel at all. I uploaded the image i wanted to the my first blog entry. it showed up in the post area ( where my writing is) but not on the side.

    I’m brand new to coding so this has been difficult but fun for me. Any response i will gladly take; sense i plan on using this template indefinitely.

    Thanks in advance

    is there any possibility to put another searchbar in the footer. because its good for people if they find an searchbar at the home-site not only in the sidebars (which only appear on the article- an link-sites)

    do you have any hints?

  356. Hello Robert,

    I helped a friend customize this theme a bit for her website and the only thing I cannot figure out is how to allow her to right align an image in the post so the text flows around it. It just keeps resetting on the actual live version to the left.

    Thanks!

  363. I’m working on editing this theme. I’m trying to add some extra stuff for single.php about authors without a widget. I think I will figure this out but. I couldn’t understand to stop showing duplicate posts on homepage. We use sticky posts for featured items, right? The featured post also included the homepage as normal posts. I have upper-beginner PHP and WP knowledge.

    Any help will be appreciated.
