    Hi Guys,

    Love the theme, but now I’ve been using it a while and have a few suggestions.

    When posting a blog I have to put in a break to not show the whole post. This sometimes causes problem as I have a left aligned image at the start (eg http://www.larryeeles.com/blog/). Can we not use the excerpt section like in the portfolio section?

    Also, when you click into the detail section of the Portfolio i get the same side as the blog. (eg http://www.larryeeles.com/the-odd-box/) is there a way of having a different side for the portfolio ones, or even remove them so you can go full width?

    Thanks again guys.

    Larry

    Hey,

    1) Replace following code in template_blog.php:

    the_content('Read more');

    with:

    the_excerpt();

    Maybe you need to activate the excerpt field on your post editing page (screen options on the right top).

    2) You can use the “Custom Post Template plugin” to select individual templates for your posts/portfolio entries. You can download it here:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-template/

    Now you need to create a template:

    a) Just make a copy of single.php, rename it to fullwidth_post.php and paste the following code before the first code line.

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name Posts: Fullwidth
    */
    ?>

    b) Change following code in fullwidth_post.php:

    $k_option['custom']['bodyclass'] = ""; // $k_option['custom']['bodyclass'] = "class='fullwidth'";

    to

    $k_option['custom']['bodyclass'] = "class='fullwidth'"; //$k_option['custom']['bodyclass'] = "";

    and delete following code:

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    Afterwards select the fullwidth template for your portfolio posts…
