I’m attempting to remove the sidebars/footers from the theme. When I deselect them within the newscast options, they go away while I’m logged in. If I log back out, they come back. Any idea what’s causing this?
I’m trying to keep the accordian slider but I want the front page to just have text from the about page or another page. Is there a way to do that instead of having the posts from the slider show up?
Thanks in advance
With that kind of customization you would be better off, and may have to, modify the index.php within the theme files. You can remove the get_sidebar and get rid of the code in the content area that calls all the blog posts.
Then include a specific other page or put in the content yourself manually.
For a broad overview see: http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop_in_Action
I’m not very web dev savvy, I’m not sure what code calls the blog posts. I assume it’s around div id main within the full sized and small sized posts sections. Would I just comment out all that code and call a page in it’s place? How do I just call a page?
I read the page about the loop but it’s above my skills. Also, if it’s easier, could the slider be shown on all pages?
Sorry for the inconvenience.
You would be removing everything inside the content div that starts on line 77. Then adding in your own bit of code to get the page data based on its ID. Here is an example from the codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_page#Examples
