    Hi I have a couple questions about customizing my site I was hoping to get some help on.

    1. How can embed a video to a post

    2. Is it possible to change the featured image shape of a post. My images are being pixelated to fit the shape so I have added them to the post directly but the small icon in widgets does not appear unless it is a featured image

    3. Is it possible to add a background color to one tab in the main menu or change the font color of one to highlight the shop tab?

    4. My social icons on the top of the homepage are so light they are barely legible, can the color of these be changed?

    5. How can I add custom icons to the icon boxes?

    Thank you!!!!

    Hi,

    1) Upload video to youtube or vimeo, right click on the screen on youtube and there is an option to copy embed code. Then you open a page or a post and paste the iframe code in text mode. Then you publish or update the page and the video is embedded

    The other way to embed videos also starts on the add post/page , the rest is shown in this image http://i.imgur.com/15DwTvL.png

    2) Yes, Please download and install the Simple Image Sizes http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-image-sizes/ and once installed you will see lots of additional settings on Settings > Media admin page, where you will see options to set dimensions for images found in multiple locations within the theme.

    3-4) Sure. Just need to know CSS or have a browser addon for firefox or chrome, there are a couple, that let you modify css by pointing at stuff and flipping levers – easier than writing CSS code. I also would recommend installing Chrome Developer Tools for the Chrome browser. Tool you can’t live without when tweaking css. Install Chrome browser and see how simple to edit anything. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8hqGBMSfHtKd2l6UkcwUjVBVWM/edit?usp=sharing <—video on editing css easily

    5) http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/abundance-theme-social-icons-header This post gives the method of how to add icons.

    Thanks,

    Thank you!!

    The video worked. I am having some problems with the following:

    2. I downloaded and adjusted the sizes with simple image sizes but for some reason it is still distorting my image. Is there a way to crop the images so they fit within the frame or with the thumbnails? You can see what I mean here http://basketsforeducation.org/2012/10/20/50-children-to-receive-book-bag-kits/

    5. I am not sure if this post is the same thing I am trying to accomplish. I did add this code to css and it did not do anything. I uploaded my images to the gallery I am just not sure how to get the images to display rather than the preset ones

    .social_bookmarks a {

    height: 32px;

    opacity: 1.0;

    width: 32px;

    }

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    2.) You have a fairly small image for the slider. Suggested image size for the slider is 690x300px. Please use larger images.

    3.) If I am not mistaken you want to change the background of your SHOP menu item. You can add this on your custom.css

    #menu-item-872 {
    background: red;
    color: blue;
    }

    You should probably watch Nick’s screencast on how to edit css. :)

    Hi,

    Please read above post first.

    To add icons, you will need to add them to folder /images/icons/iconbox/

    Once you add them, you will be able to select them as you normally select the current icons within the theme.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Thank you very much! Could you please explain how I can add them to the folder? I am not sure how to access this folder in the admin part of my site. I have sized the icons according to the support thread attached above just unsure of how to add my images to the folder and access them through my site. Thanks for your help

    Hi,

    To access the File Manager click on the corresponding icon in the Files section of your cPanel. Then you will be able to pick the directory for which to open File Manager.

    To upload files in File Manager follow these steps.

    1.) Navigate to the folder where you want to upload your files.

    2.) Click on the Upload icon.

    3.) Click on the Browse button next to one of the top fields.

    4.) Search for and double-click on the first file to upload. The upload will start automatically.

    5.) Repeat the above steps for each file you want to upload.

    6.) Click on the Overwrite existing files check box if you want to overwrite existing files with the same name.

    You can download files from the server to your personal computer through the Download option.

    You can copy and move files between the account’s folders through the Copy and Move File functionalities. You can Rename and Delete the existing files through the corresponding options.

    Watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3a5kRk552lA.

    It is easier if you have an FTP software like Filezilla.

    Hi,

    Please read above. If you dont use cpanel, you would need to use an FTP program like ( https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client ) then ask your host for your login/pw which is different than you wordpress or server login/pw. Then navigate to folder /wp-content/themes/abundance/images/icons/iconbox/ and upload using Filezilla FTP the images from your computer to the folder.

    Thanks,

    Nick
