one other thing. its also slow when im in the backend of wordpress. if i click on posts, it takes ages to load. this made me wonder if its the server. can plugins make wordpress slow in the backend as well?
actually dont worry about it, i think i might just delete the preview image and add them manually.
hmm this doesnt seem to be working for me
i change single.php to
$preview_image = kriesi_post_thumb($post->ID, array(‘size’=> array(‘ML’),
‘display_link’ => array(‘lightbox’), // ‘_prev_image_link’ or array(‘lightbox’)
‘linkurl’ => array (‘fullscreen’,’_preview_big’),
‘wh’ => $k_option
and function.php to
$k_option = array(‘width’=>560, ‘height’=>320); // single post image
made a test post with a new uploaded image of some geese
the thumbnail has stayed the same size.
thanks for that. i will give it a try
will the regenerate thumbnails plugin work for this type of thing for images already imported? i havent used it yet
also, is it possible to make newscast have the featured image above the content and sidebar like in the habitat theme for a single page?April 3, 2011 at 6:40 am in reply to: How to add facebook like button or tweet button to the posts? #43421
i used share and follow plugin and put the php code in the areas where i wanted the icons to show up. you can also use sexybookmarks…March 29, 2011 at 10:01 pm in reply to: How to include a categorie that is assigned to multiple categories (Newscast) #42757
if you look now you will see it at the top but only because i changed the date of the publish to be the latest. thats not going to last for long :)March 29, 2011 at 1:02 pm in reply to: How to include a categorie that is assigned to multiple categories (Newscast) #42756
thanks for the code
$additional_loop = new WP_Query(“cat=25&paged=$paged&ignore_sticky_posts=0″);
category 25 is my featured category.
this still doesnt move the sticky post to the top for me.March 27, 2011 at 10:11 am in reply to: How to include a categorie that is assigned to multiple categories (Newscast) #42752March 26, 2011 at 11:06 pm in reply to: sharing icons for individual posts on mainpage and archive view #43089
actually i went into the index.php and think i got it sorted. once again placed the php code after the excerpt. works pretty well i think.March 26, 2011 at 10:43 pm in reply to: sharing icons for individual posts on mainpage and archive view #43088
thanks for the tip…i got sexybookmarks
i pasted the php code into the archives.php just after the excerpt
looks pretty good. maybe a bit too much padding.
though its not coming up on the mainpage…any advice? what php file is controlling the mainpage?March 25, 2011 at 9:45 pm in reply to: How to include a categorie that is assigned to multiple categories (Newscast) #42751
ive used this technique and it seems to be working for me, thanks.
the only thing is that my sticky post in the featured category is not at the top now…under construction post
is there a way to make sure that the sticky post in the featured category is always at the top?March 24, 2011 at 10:25 pm in reply to: is it possible to have a hyperlink in an excerpt in newscast #43039
i did some googling around on this
for anyone else who wants to do this
open the html section for your post..upper right hand of post window. copy the contents and paste that into your excerpt.
then you have links in your excerpt….coolMarch 23, 2011 at 8:26 am in reply to: google calendar widget being cut off in newscast sidebar #42807March 23, 2011 at 8:26 am in reply to: widget logic, nested categories and posts with multiple categories #42856
thanks for that. it worked. i didnt have it in the ‘display everywhere’ area. once i did that its working. cheers. support here is great and newscast is a very cool theme.March 23, 2011 at 2:10 am in reply to: widget logic, nested categories and posts with multiple categories #42854
its showing up on the home page
but not the news archiveMarch 23, 2011 at 1:19 am in reply to: google calendar widget being cut off in newscast sidebar #42805
oh and i should note that i have a text widget below the calendar widget but its not showing up
thanks for your quick reply.
its seems that in the newscast theme there is something funny going on with posts. if i insert a photo on the top line and then add text under it, when newscast publishes this it adds space like there is a paragraph gap. i then need to move the text up to the right hand side of the photo on to the top line so that there is no space. i know have the image with the text next to it. i havent had to do this before on other themes ive worked with. on previous themes, when i added an image, i could add text below the image and it would render fine. its seems like newscast isnt recognising the image as taking up text lines…
with the slider post image which is 960px wide, i cant seem to make the post window wide enough to get the text to to to the top line
i could post a screen shot but im not sure how to add it here.
