    How do I post images for the main page? Can yo please guide me?

    #31000

    In your WordPress Options Panel click appearance->amplify.

    First make sure that image resizing is set to active.

    At “Amplify Starting Page Image Slider” choose some categories. Blog posts applied to these categories will show up at the image slider.

    Now create a new post. Make sure that you apply one of the categories choosen above.

    When writing a post you will notice the extra field bellow the content area: with the heading

    “Enter a URL that links to an image into the fields”

    here oyu need to enter the url to your image like this: http://www.yourdomain/yourimage1.jpg

    Thanks. I figured that out.

    1 more question, is there anyway I can hide the date when a blog post was created?

    Thanks.

    Sure, there are a few places you need to make edits:

    1.) archive.php – find and delete this code:

    <span class="meta_sub"><?php the_time('d.m.Y') ?></span>

    2.) index.php – find and delete this code:

    <span class="meta_sub"><?php the_time('d.m.Y') ?></span>

    3.) functions.php – find and delete this code:

    the_time('d.m.Y');
    echo'</span><span class="meta_sub">';

    4.) single.php – find and delete this code:

    <span class="meta_sub"><?php the_time('d.m.Y') ?></span>

    5.) template_blog.php – find and delete this code:

    <span class="meta_sub"><?php the_time('d.m.Y') ?></span>

    Let me know if you need help with anything else.

    Thanks. 1 more please….

    How can I edit the index.php so that I can modify the lower right of th main page. Instead of showing “recent post, recent coment, popular post”, I want to edit it o show only a preview of 1 page or any custom page. Thanks.

    #31004

    You would need to find and replace this code:

    <!-- latest blog, latest comment, most popular-->
    <?php
    $show_special_items = new kriesi_list_post_items;

    $show_special_items -> recent_posts('<h4>latest blog entries</h4>');

    $show_special_items -> recent_comments('<h4>recent comments</h4>');

    $show_special_items -> popular_posts('<h4>most popular entries</h4>');
    ?>

    with this code:

    <?php $additional_loop = new WP_Query("page_id=1");
    while ($additional_loop->have_posts()) : $additional_loop->the_post(); ?>
    <h2 class='siteheading'>"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <?php the_content('Read more');
    endwhile; ?>

    replace the 1 with the ID of the page you wish to show here.

    Thanks. It works.

    Any way I can configure it to show exactly the same format as the lower right window? Also, the read more is not working even if I have edited the page.

    Thank you.

    How do I modify my lower right screen showing the page to show exactly the same format as the lower left screen?

    #31007

    The Read More button will only show up if you use the <–more–> tag – see here for more info: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More

    To modify the layout of the lower right area, you could adjust the CSS to match the formatting on the left. If you have specific questions about this and need help let me know.

    which CSS file should I modify?

    How do I create 3 columns on the bottom part of the main page?

    #31009

    Using FireBug, you can see which elements use styles set in style.css

    It’s just a case of finding the style you need to edit and making the changes in the relevant CSS file (style.css or /css/style1.css).

    I’ll be recording / posting a video on using FireBug to edit your theme when I get the time (but probably within the next couple of weeks) – in the meantime there’s an introductory video here: http://getfirebug.com/video/Intro2FB.htm

    more question please, how do I customize the lower right screen? which css to modify to change the title and content? I would like to post a different information instead of showing recent posts/comments but would like to use the same formatting…. Thanks.

    <!– latest blog, latest comment, most popular–>

    <?php

    $show_special_items = new kriesi_list_post_items;

    $show_special_items -> recent_posts(‘<h4>latest blog entries</h4>’);

    $show_special_items -> recent_comments(‘<h4>recent comments</h4>’);

    $show_special_items -> popular_posts(‘<h4>most popular entries</h4>’);

    ?>
