    This thread is devoted to the numerous issues that I’ve encountered when trying to get this theme working the way that I want it to. If you are having trouble with aspects of your own, you may find the answer here.

    Sorry for the multiple posts as I can’t edit my previous and I want to keep all the info for my various questions together. Some of the answers will no doubt raise further questions, I’ll try to keep this obvious.

    My site is a directory of craft patterns: http://www.intatters.com/knots/

    My initial questions:

    1. My navigation bar had disappeared

    2. How to remove popup boxes on the home page

    3. Ratings are not working at all

    4. How to change the size of the featured image in the post page itself

    5. How to change the way that the thumbnails are generated so that the created one is more useful (the rollover image there is much better than the standard top left corner image)

    6. Alternatively how to force it to use the alternative thumbnail option which doesn’t seem to be working

    7. How to make search work on tags

    1. Navigation bar disappeared

    Solution: I had to create a menu with the links which I wanted going across the top, the first item is the one covered by the home icon so I added in a link to the home page for that. No code, just add them in under Appearance > Menus


    2. Popup boxes on home page

    Solution: I found a new custom.js file by Dude in another thread on this topic – http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/remove-hover-preview-from-indexgallery I downloaded the file at http://www.mediafire.com/?yp4ssf1g42fjo7y and installed it and the pesky popups were gone.


    4. Change size of image on single post page

    Solution: In the functions.php file I changed

    $k_option['custom']['imgSize']['L'] = array('width'=>610, 'height'=>260); // big preview pic for posts

    to

    $k_option['custom']['imgSize']['L'] = array('width'=>500, 'height'=>375); // big preview pic for posts


    7. Make search work on tags as well

    I added in the search everything plugin and set it up accordingly.


    New questions added:

    8. How to centre the image on the single post page (I’m not a php coder, I can’t seem to figure this one out)
