I’ve been playing around with the Bob code on my site (masella.us) and I would like to know how I can post the latest post with full text and then 6 or 8 previous posts all with excerpts at the bottom… It seems to only want to do 1…. I can’t seem to find which piece of code to change down there…

Hi Bob (or anyone else here that can help),

I have heavily modified this theme for use on my site (thanks for a great theme Bob), but I am having right sidebar display problems on IE 6, all other browsers display perfectly. On IE 6, the contents of the right sidebar are pushed way down on the page.

I read online about referring to an IE specific stylesheet, but I have no clue on how to do this or what css to put into the stylesheet.

Can someone please help me figure this out? Our site just went live two days ago and is ecommerce enabled, but we didn’t discover this problem until too late.

Please help???

Sincerely,

Adam

This is in response to Matt’s question about the gray dividers in between the left and right sidebars.

I am wondering where these are defined? I need to remove them as I have removed the left sidebar and will be extending the entry box to where the left sidebar used to be.

Dear Bob, can you help and offer us where to find the two gray dividers?

Thank you:)

Adam

Hey.. Thanks for the speeeeeeedy reply! I do have the links coded in (I put them lower down by where it lists the category per post)… The problem is sometimes they just don’t appear for me… and sometimes they do….

It’s really weird. I dont know if it’s a cache issue or a cookie issue or a headers issue or I am going crazy issue?

I do see the links on archive/category pages 100% of the time when logged in.. just not the main page/single pages.

robert duffy Reply

i love this theme… i am using it on my site…
one question i have is it seems like in the main page of my blog, it sometimes doesn’t recognized that i’m logged in as an admin… so i dont get the EDIT links… if i go to a category page, i’ll get the links..

using latest Firefox on Mac OS X…. is this something related to caching? or in the headers… or?….

seems like i get the edit links about 50% of the time..

sorry the blog ate the last of the comment

solves the problem of the function
php wp_list_bookmarks();
which is called by lsidebar.php
in the blog oh blog theme.
Only at issue for the 2.2 wordpress install it seems.

PJ Reply

There it is.

I found the other bug. It’s in WordPress install 2.2

wp-includes/bookmark-template.php

line 331
‘category_orderby’ => ‘name’, ‘category_order’ => ‘ASC’, ‘class’ => ‘linkcat’,
needs to be changed to
‘category_orderby’ => ‘cat_name’, ‘category_order’ => ‘ASC’, ‘class’ => ‘linkcat’,

that resolves the problem of themes which call the bookmarks function such as

This blog-oh-blog layout is lovely!

I had a problem when I installed it on one server; the default install had no white bkgd behind the right two columns. I installed it again on a diff server and it was fine. go figure!

Also on the server where it’s fine, there is a bug, though it seems to be in the 2.2 version of wordpress, not the theme. This code:

“wp_list_bookmarks()” in the lsidebar.php

is creating an error (trying to sort by name instead of cat_name in a sql query, but obviously that is in the WP files being called. Still searching for a solution. I don’t know WP much and don’t do PHP which as you might figure is quite a hindrance lol).

Also, the code
wp_list_categories(‘show_count=1&title_li=Categories’) in lsidebar.php

Brought up a bug I found in the wordpress 2.2 default files, in wp-includes/links.php
line 293 dealing with cat_name refers to name instead of cat_name. I changed this and it solved a visible problem being thrown on the blog.

(There are other areas where that issue seems present in the wp2.2 code (links.php line 526, template_functions_category.php line 122) but changing it didn’t seem to change anything at least on the main face of the blog.)

This is just trivia I put here in case anybody comes searching for info. – PJ

I’ve modified this theme which is great btw, but I’m stumped on how I can place a 468×60 banner on the top right side such as you have on your current layout. Could you perhaps help me? I’d appreciate it!

Thanks.

The problem occur (in IE 6) when RSidebar is shorter than LSidebar. If it is the other way around, it appears OK. I will try on IE7 soon, anyway it’s a great theme!

eches Reply

Thanks for the heads up,now it appears perfectly in IE..anyway I encounter this problem..the blogroll list is not fully displayed in IE6 (Firefox OK), it’s truncated..how to fix this?

Bob Reply

eches@ nice mod. No, bob just my hobby :). I created it just for fun and personal learning area. Opps.. double check your Addthis button on Opera and IE browser, but looking sharp on Firefox and safari. Cool

I’ve installed this theme..Looks so professional woo 🙂 Do you do freelancing? You can make some money out of your skill. For what it’s worth, try to take a look at http://forums.digitalpoint.com and several other places..maybe you know much better than me..just wanna sharelah..Looking forward for new themes..all the best!

hi bob

I like this theme very much cos it’s clean and doesn’t waste precious space at the top.

I would like to know where in the stylesheet can I make the pointsize of the headers of posts bigger. Now they are the same size as the body text.

Another thing I would like to know is, is this theme SEO’ed?

thks!

Bob, I see that the ‘Related Post’ appears on the single post page. How do I place that into the active post. Also, how do I place any related post link? Thanks

Matt Reply

Hey Bob, how do I change the color of the column dividers between the right and left sidebars. For example, I am refering to the light gray column divider that extends the entire length of the page on your theme on blogohblog. I can’t seem to find how to change that color. Thanks.

Just found this template a couple days ago when I was thinking about switching to WordPress as my website, it’s nice and easy for a noob like me to edit. 😀

How I am waiting for this theme to have sidebars on either sides…Can you do that. I love the simplistic approach and B/W spaces on this template…The only thing I want is sidebars on either side with Content in middle…That would be just fantastic….
Are you planning to come out with such ?
Thanks for your effort !

Bob Reply

Alex@ Thanks 🙂

Small Potato@ Yeah! Thanks come here and for the child pages alert. i just put current_page_item in the nav css. its ok for a little child pages. but not good if too many child pages in the horizontal menu. over space. depth will be take important if somebody request for it like

🙂 guy! double check

Nice theme, but your top horizontal menu needs depth=1 in wp_list_pages().

Without that, blogs with multiple child page levels will have a difficult time displaying a proper horizontal menu.

Sorry to keep asking questions admin, but did you figure out how to fix the template in IE. I am still having the same problem. Also, thanks for all of the support with this theme.

I tried a fresh copy of the index.php without my edits, removing all the widgets, and I still have the same problem with I.E. Im stumped. ;(

Can you help me figure out why the 3rd column keeps dropping on my blog in Internet Explorer. Im using the latest IE. IT looks great in firefox however.

Matt Reply

Admin, I am using IE 7.

Also, how can I change the color of the column dividers between the left and right sidebar and between the main content section and the left sidebar?

I have a small question. What should I edit in order to adjust the width of the two sidebars? Other than that, thanks for the theme. I really like the dark color scheme. 🙂
