Hi ElementArt & Kriesi,
Sorry for dropping in but I have the same issue.
I have the site running for a long time now and I always had a thumbnail / preview in the list “Latest news”.
After updating to 2.4 choices I noticed the image being gone.
I would like to have it stay as it was, so no need to code extra.
Or is this the only solution?
The way it has worked for me all the time was just create a new post and publish it. It would automatically select the same image always for the preview. But I have forgotten about how I did this. Otherwise I could look for it…
Please help and sorry for Hijackin this post.
ps I saw it is working for you now ElementArt .
For some strange reason the images are back, … I have done nothing.
Maybe it was a bad cache or something, anyway it is solved for now.

Thanks for the reply.
After reading and thinking, I believe this is what I should do.
0. Make a complete backup of all files and database!!
1. Check the version I have running now and download the entire folder from the server
2. If possible download the same version but original on Envato
3. Verify the the files and then determine wich are cahnged
> because I have the same version running, as the original version, it can only be changes that come from my hand.
These changed folder should be placed in the child folder on the server.
Next: upload the original files to the server in the choices folder.
If all is correct no difference should be there.
If all works, I should be able to upload the latest choices version.
Because my child theme files stay as stey are, nothing should be changed on the frontside of the side.
Does this make sense?
Thanks for the reply, however, it did not work for me.
I have checked and rechecked, used the find and replace tool in my Notepad++ editor to be sure I have missed nothing.
But nothing worked. Alle seemed lost….
But in the end, after accidentally finding a plugin called “Duplicator” I have solved the problem by simply duplicating the sit with that plugin.
It was e real easy job and it went flawless, everyting worked right away, just like it is supposed to be.
For me this is the way to go in the future!
Thanks for telling me there is a new version available.
I have downloaded it and my “original website” is running like it should.
The WordPress version is updated to the most recent version, the Choices theme is updated to the most recent version too.
What I have done is this:
1. download all files by FTP from the original website
2. exported the database from the original website
3. uploaded all the files into the new domain by ftp
4. the wp-config.php file was changed to meet the new database name and pasword etc.
5. edited the database (changed all the http://www.olddomain.nl links to http://www.newdomains.nl links)
5. the database wich was empty on the new domain was now imported
I have done this a few times before and there never was a problem.
At this moment there is an issue however. In short is comes down to this:
Everything that has got something to do with the choices theme is not eported and / or imported.
I mean, all the images are there, the menu is there, the postst etc.
But is is not used, or filled in as you will.
An example: the favicon logo field is empty, I need to manually enter the link.
Or, the logo field is empty as well, the image itself is copied to the new domain but I need to manually fill in the link to the file.
Somehow all that information is lost during export / import.
What may I have done wrong??August 30, 2014 at 2:44 pm in reply to: Making my site multilingual (translate to other language) #311294
Okay thanks for the explaining.
At this moment I use “Codestyling Localisation” plugin for translating theme-based items to Dutch.
I mean, like “Youa are here” breadcrumbs can be translated directly in the php file or with the plugin.
I am afraid those two plugins will clash together. Do you think it would be better to uninstall the plugin I have now, and then get WPML and re-translate all?August 29, 2014 at 12:16 am in reply to: Making my site multilingual (translate to other language) #310730
Thanks dude for the reply.
If we would go for WPML then we would use the most popular version, all features, and a yearly fee.
But how is it that Choices theme is WPML ready? I mean, what is different from themes that are not?
And; when I am in the admin panel where do I or can I find out that there is something different / extra because WPML ready?
Besides from the answer, I wil consider purchasing the WPML plugin.
3. Okay, no probs, I thought it would be beter to ask if you support these kind of questions before asking staight away.
I will try other resources / help.
4. I have read and understood the article.
But do you advice to have it automatically updated or not?
I believe it is best not to automatically update so this would be the best solution:
define( ‘AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED’, true ); <– add to wp-config.php file
5. I have the latest version installed (2.0) and the latest version of WordPress.
Thanks for the help Josue
It took some time for me to understand your explain but now I see what it does: exactly what I meant. So thanks very much!
I understand you change the padding when the screen does become smaller.
Could you explain in “readable words” how I should interprate the code? I mean does it say this:
if the screen width size is bigger than 782px en less than 990px then set padding to 6px?
Update: I noticed that when the backgroundimage is set to “fixed” in stead of “scroll” the problem is solved….
I cannot find any z-index coding in the CSS so I may be searching for the wrong thing..?
Update 2: I have set the background image to “fixed” as long as this issue is not solved.
Hope to her from you.

I just watched the video but without sound (don’t have sound over here at work).
But it is pretty simple, just overwrite the complete folder.
So I will do just that.
Thanks a lot.March 31, 2014 at 7:49 am in reply to: Making the background image responisive / full stretched #245309
Ismael, thanks this plugin seems to be working for me. I will have a try with it!March 28, 2014 at 8:57 am in reply to: Making the background image responisive / full stretched #244247
This most certainly looks like what I am after for.
Css trick# 2 is what is working best for me.
But how do you implement this code?
I mean, the best way would be to go into the theme options, style tab, and use custom css.
But How to do it?
The php file contains:
<div class=”bg_container” style=”background-image:url(‘http://www.mysite.nl/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/myfile-300×200.jpg’);”></div>
Can you help me out?
Or give me a hint? I have no site up and running yet to show you, I am just precticing :-)
Yes of course.
Well, all the links etc. are now in one color. (if I use that code wich I am not right now)
But the buttons in de slider, get that color then too.
So the first post says:
Would it be possible to change the color of all the links (and email adresses as well) with a piece of custom css?
But I meaned:
Would it be possible to change the color of all the links (and email adresses as well) BUT NOT the color of the text in the slider button with a piece of custom css?
Thanks for this tip: it seems to work just perfect.
Just a small question aside, is it possible to have it this way but give the text in the buttons a different color?
SOrry for my delay but I just wanted to let you know that using a different browser makes it work. So my conclusion is that somehow the update of the tablet went wrong and that the standard browser went buggy. So the solution was to try another browser. Topic may be marked as resloved / closed. Thanks again!
Yigit, thanks a lot!!
I have no clue what happened, but when I copied the code in custom.css nothing happened, even after refreshing the page a few times. And now all of a sudden it works!
Also the responsive mode works, the logo2 is centered in the middel under the logo.,
Again thanks a lot!
That does work.
Please help me with the other issues as well :-)
Thanks for the help!
Sorry I see you are still busy, I am letting it alone for now :-) dont want to get in your way

Also, if you look at the logo image I used; it is not very nice done.
I mean, it would have been better to cut the logo in 2 parts.
One is the actual logo, and the other “the way to health”.
Leave the logo where it is and the other part aligned to where it is now.
I would rather have done it that way but then I wonder if that is possible at all.
I think I would need to add a <div> extra am I right? Any chance of improving this mess?
Thank you very much for the help, I will try to use a child-theme-style.css file to keep my css changes.
In case of problems I will come back to you, thanks again.
Thanks for the reply.
So okay, I will add a new map in the themes folder called “choices-child”.
If I am going to modify any core file, I will then copy that file into my child map and edit that one.
Is that the correct way to do it?
Let’s say I do not want to use the Quick CSS field but a real *.css file for my changes, what do I need to do?
Do I need to create an empty style.css file in the child folder and add thes line to it:
/* Theme Name: Choices Template: choices */ @import url("../choices/style.css"); /* =Theme customization starts here -------------------------------------------------------------- */
However, I am not sure about this part: @import url(“../choices/style.css”);
Can you tell me what to do exactly?
Thanks for the reply.
Like you have said I have used a text widget and put in some HTML code to get what I need.
Besides that tip I have now learned a way to make it even 4 – 5 – etc. ads long.
So I am happy with the help provided !
Thanks for the reply Ishmael!
I really can’t explain better in words than this, so maybe I can send you a PM (mail) with a screenrecording in it so you can see what I mean?? Please send me your emailadres and I will send it to you.
Also a question was:
The copyright part of the footer is not the same on all pages; sometimes it says 2011, sometimes 2013.
Any idea where this can be fixed? Maybe an easy solution but I don’t see it right now…
Thansk in advance for the help!February 24, 2013 at 3:43 pm in reply to: Various questions regarding the theme (modifications) #107959
