OK, I figured out the Related Post deal. If you have posts tagged with the same tag, it tries to pull the featured image thumbnail. If there’s no featured image, you get the square with question mark. While that is a cool feature, it also sort of disables tagging or requires an image on every tag.
I’ve worked around the lack of menu URL by using “Blog” as a category. That leaves an inelegant title on the blog page, but it works.
Thank you. I wouldn’t have figured out that the opening and closing tags would differ.
As far as plugins, I don’t have any installed that didn’t come with the theme itself.
Another thing – I can’t figure out how to remove Related Posts (or to what that refers) in blog posts. Right now, there is an icon with a question mark and no data.
I’m having the same issue. Additionally, the second_third column is higher than the first third for some reason. I can’t seem to get the third third working, trying the codes [one_third], [one_third last], [third_third] and without any shortcode.
While I’m at it, is there a way to have a menu item that goes to the most recent blog post?
