    Excerpts Editing…

    Hello, I did what you told me to swap positions for ”read more” and ”categories” in indes.php and archive.php but nothing happens… i would like to ask some questions to customize my excerpt area.

    please enter inside http://www.entrecuatros.com just to give you a point of reference, so you know what im talking about.

    in the excerpts I already removed the date icon (only left numbers) the comments and author things.

    now i just have the date numbers, categories, read more and a sharethis button

    1. how can i put the ”read more” in the right-low corner of the excerpt

    2. how can i put the ”categories” button just on the left side of the Date numbers

    2.1 In the date information Dec, 05, 2011… how can i put the whole word of the month? like December, 05, 2011

    2.2 About the ”categories” button… how can i remove the underlined line when i put the mouse cursor un top of the button? and how can i change the color of the buttons please?

    3. I have a ”sharethis” button and i would like to place it in the lower left corner (where normally is the ”read more” button… how can i do this?

    4. Is there any way to remove the margins of the thumbnails photos and make them bigger or more panoramic?

    5. how can i add a divider line between the excerpts and how can I make the space between them narrower or closer?

    just in case, i would to ask you if you know anyway or plugin i could use to lock some post on the top of the page, even if i put new ones… just leave the selected post on the top until the time i decide to remove them and they will be reorganized in the date order they should be…

    this is like the http://www.yankodesign.com fridays giveaway posts… (this posts have a different color in this page… like a transparency color… could you recommend something to be able to do this please.

    Thank you for everything I’m really enjoying with this incredible theme!

    Hello Dude, I’ve been trying to solve these questions while i wait for answer, I found how to change the size of the thumbnails so you can forget about that one,

    please dont forget about this, I’m really looking forward for your response.

    Hey,

    In style.css replace:

    .more-link, .entry-bottom .categories{
    -moz-border-radius: 2px;
    -webkit-border-radius:2px;
    border-radius:2px;
    display: block;
    float: left;
    padding:5px 7px;
    line-height: 1em;
    margin-bottom:5px;
    }

    with:

    .more-link, .entry-bottom .categories{
    -moz-border-radius: 2px;
    -webkit-border-radius:2px;
    border-radius:2px;
    display: block;
    float: right;
    padding:5px 7px;
    line-height: 1em;
    margin-bottom:5px;
    }

    and in archive/index.php move following line:

    <a href="<?php echo get_permalink() ?>" class="more-link"><?php _e('Read more','newscast'); ?></a>

    into the entry head div.

    2) You can change the time format in index.php/archive.php – search for:

    <?php the_time('M d, Y') ?>

    and change it. http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

    2.2) Use following code – I’d add it to style1/2/3/4.css:

    span.categories a, span.categories a:hover{
    text-decoration: none !important;
    }

    span.categories{
    background: #222222;
    border: 1px solid #333333;
    }

    3) Add your share this button code after:

    <div class="entry-bottom">

    4) You can use following code in style.css (at the bottom):

    .entry-previewimage, .entry-previewimage  a img, .entry-previewimage a {
    height: 180px;
    padding: 0px;
    width: 180px;
    border: none;
    }

    Change 180px to any size of your choice. In functions.php adjust the thumbnail size too. Then regenerate the thumbs with: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/
