Hi, I’m new to this.
I got an FTP client, uploaded the wordpress documents.
I unzipped and uploaded via FTP the angular.zip contents in wp-content/themes
I unzipped and uploaded via FTP the bbpress plugin contents into wp-content/plugins
I’m using bytehost (free).
So I have MANY problems:
-So when I activate the theme, sometimes wordpress builder doesn’t respond (it’s at random, and it doesn’t matter what I click) and gives me the error 500 and then I can’t do anything except refresh the page and HOPE it starts to work again.
-When I try to upload a logo (I haven’t even gotten further than this), under 1MB, following the given dimensions, it gives me an HTTP error. I installed Image Upload HTTP Error Fix plugin and activated. I’ve also installed Third Party Host Fix and activated for I can’t even remember what problem.
-I tried to create a new dynamic template, and it wouldn’t let me. No error code, nothing happens at all.
These are the problems I’ve encountered so far. I don’t have an .htaccess file, I’ve looked up and down the internet to solve my problems. Can someone help me?
Thank you in advance. I appreciate any help.February 2, 2012 at 12:20 am #62425
So it works sometimes, I take those opportunities to update as much as I can while I’m learning how this works.
I can’t get the portfolio tab to work stably, it hasn’t ever worked so I have no idea what to do there. Is this where you can upload photos and have the filtered categories and thumbnails and titles and a description for this project OR is this all done through posts?
Still having all of the above problems.
Please help.February 2, 2012 at 5:12 am #62426
Never mind. I`m not sure I resolved the HTTP problem however I deleted ALL of the files, reinstalled wordpress and all the themes and plugins and it seems to be working.February 2, 2012 at 8:21 am #62427
just for info – if you’re using ftp to install the themes upload the UNPACKED/UNZIPPED files only (so unpack angular.zip a second time and upload the folder to wp-content/themes).February 2, 2012 at 6:27 pm #62428
yup that’s what I did and it worked. What is the PSD folder for?
Right now I made my portfolio categories, did all the settings in angular>theme options>portfolio (so that is hows up on the home page and I selected the categories)
But nothing is showing. My 3 portfolio entries are published and I can see them when I view portfolio entry (when editing them).
How do I fix this so that it looks like the angular example?
Do I use the default thumbnail?
Do I have to upload an image twice, once as a thumbnail and once as medium so it’s bigger when you click on it?
What dimensions would you recommend for the photos once clicked on?
I also don’t know where to add the clickable title that allows the selected entry to be expanded
Thank you.February 2, 2012 at 6:45 pm #62429
also, how do you edit the footer content (not how many columns but the actual text and links)?February 2, 2012 at 9:59 pm #62430
how do yo edit the copyright info on the bottom, like add a year?
I also don’t see my excerpt from my portfolio entry (individual item)
how do you change the order of the portfolio entries?February 2, 2012 at 10:17 pm #62431
I’d like to add that in order for the portfolio to be displayed, the same settings have to applied in 2 places which I find redundant. I might be missing something and it necessary in certain cases but I find that extra work and confusion for nothing. Just a suggestion.
Also, the portfolio once opened on a new page doesn’t have an option to x or close or some sort of BACK button instead of always clicking home to get back to the portfolio grid.
