I did some searching around the forums for you this morning & found these posts that might help :)December 31, 2011 at 2:10 pm in reply to: How to add more posts to category pages? (Shoutbox) #59558
I can try to help :)
1. I can’t seem to figure out how to add more posts to the category pages. Right now it’s pulling in 5 posts by default and nothing seems to change that.
–> Try this: go to your regular wordpress Settings -> Reading -> Blog Posts to Show at Most -> Change the number there
2. I also want to get rid of the “Archive for category:” at the top of the category pages, so they look more like specific pages. I haven’t seen a specific fix for this theme in the forum.
-> Open up Shoutbox > Framework > Php > function-set-avia-frontend.php
Find this code:
$output = __('Archive for category: ','avia_framework').single_cat_title('',false);
Change it to this:
$output = __('','avia_framework').single_cat_title('',false);
3. The inside pages of the blog (page 2, 3, 4, etc.), is there any way to customize them / decide the number of posts pulled in separate from the home page? And/or customize the widgets separate from the homepage?
-> You can customize any of the “posts” by using different “dynamic templates” on the lower right hand side of the page. You can choose different templates -> preview them -> then choose one you’re happy with & publish
-> In order to have different templates to choose from, go to your wordpress dashboard choose Shoutbox -> Template Builder -> and follow the directions there on the page.
-> To make different widgets (sidebar options) show up on different “Categories” or “Pages” go to Shoutbox -> Theme Options -> Sidebar -> there you will find options for adding different options to any page or category you select.
It seems like there is a limit to the number it will allow – it seems to be somewhere around 325 or so.
I have really tried to find some sort of other setting / code / area to change / files to change /
I manually went through all the posts in the “shoutbox” forum area / with no answers.
If you can please give me the “clue” as to where to look to help the front blog “full posts” actually become
full posts, I would SO appreciate it!
** Having more text on your page helps your site rank better in google, because they feel you have unique
content to offer – thus – I would like to try to include at least the few top posts in full text.
Thanks so much
ps – I didn’t want you to think that I was leaving everything up to you without trying to help myself :) I also
want to buy my 2nd theme, but I’m a bit nervous to buy another one until I can get this little basic item
