    Hi,

    I have succesfully installed Brightbox theme. At first i want to thank you for a great theme and such and awesome feature template builder in it! I have some issues with blog and thumbnails;

    1. I created homepage template with template bluilder where i added blog. Issue is that it shows whole content of posts, not excerpts or read more buttons.

    2. I suppose that when adding new post with featured image on it, image should automatically resize itself to fit as it has been defined on theme, am i right? My images are not doing that.

    3. While using special widget “Brightbox Combo Widget” thumbnails at tab “Popular” does not show up at all, thumbnails at “Recent” are going way too wide.

    4. When using slideshow “Small Featured 2D with static text” none of images caption titles or captions does not show up.

    Can i change colors of Small Featured 2D Slideshow with static text buttons?

    All thumbnail issues are ok, i had too small images there, thats solved now. Would be great to solve this homepage blog excerpt thing, not want to show whole content of post there.

    Hey,

    you’ve to possibilities:

    1) a) Use the read more tag (more information here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More )

    b) Or open up loop-index.php located in the folder “includes” and change following code:

    the_content(__('Read more','avia_framework'));  ?>

    to:

    the_excerpt();
    echo "<a href='".get_permalink()."' class='more-link'>Read more</a>";
    ?>

    2) Yes we’re aware of the caption problem with the 2d slider. Kriesi is working on a fix already…

    Yep, you missed “?>” from the end ;) it is working.

    How about those buttons colors of small featured 2d slideshow? how can i change them?

    #45112

    Yes sorry – I corrected it :)

    #45113

    hah, Dude i just did have some closer look to posts, after last modification you posted above it puts read more link to single article also, so you cant see whole content of post anywhere, just excerpt and read more :D help? :)

    #45114

    Hey,

    I changed the code above – please try it again.

    #45115

    Still shows whole content of the post at homepage.

    #45116

    Dude, throw another code and lets try it, would be nice to publish our site. Atm its depending at this issue.

    Kriesis loop seems to make it impossible to use the conditional tags. The only solution I can think of now is:

    1) Make a copy of loop-index.php

    2) Call the copy loop-single.php

    3) Open up loop-index.php located in the folder “includes” and change following code:

    the_content(__('Read more','avia_framework'));  ?>

    to:

    the_excerpt();
    echo "<a href='".get_permalink()."' class='more-link'>Read more</a>";
    ?>

    5) In single.php change

    get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'index' );

    to:

    get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'single' );

    Do you want do them all? i can provide ftp / admin access?

    #45120

    No please try to make these changes yourself.

    #45121

    Ok, in that case could you explain me few things; 3) Call the copy loop-single.php – how and where should i call it? in loop-index.php?

    #45122

    I meant to say rename the copy of loop-index.php to loop-single.php. Basically you just duplicate loop-index.php and afterwards you rename the php file to loop-single.php.

    #45123

    ok i done it, thanks dude i think its working now. :D

    #45124

    Glad that I could help you :)

    #45125

    I tried this too but I cannot click through to the full content of the post. I see the “Read More…” on the full post page as well.

    #45126

    Hey,

    I corrected the instructions above a bit – please try it again.
