maybe I just got that wrong, or maybe it is a bug. Anyways:
I set the default layout for blog posts to medium image / right sidebar in the theme options panel – because that is what I want them to be like on single post view.
For my blog page (overview with excerpts) I created a custom template in the template builder and chose small preview images in the settings for the blog section. Assigned that template to the “blog” page.
But: medium image is displayed.
So – what would be the correct way to have medium image / right sidebar on single post view and small image / right sidebar on the “blog” page

Errrr – scratch that. The template builder wins, just as it is supposed to.
I got confused because of another little glitch with the breadcrumb navigation – the breadcrumb link “blog” on single posts is NOT linked to the “blog” page, but to /category/blog, and on that archive page the default from theme options kicks in.
So guess one more “if” needs to be added to the breadcrumb functions…February 18, 2012 at 3:14 pm #64605
I’ll report it to Kriesi. I’m not sure if it’s possible to implement the blog page into the breadcrumb because of technical reasons (every solution I can think of can return weird results under certain circumstances).February 18, 2012 at 3:20 pm #64606
yep, guessed so. That’s why I did not mark it as support request. Breadcrumbs are tricky little buggers… ;-)
I implemented your fix for the product category breadcrumbs, and will just add one more check so it links “Blog” to my blog-page. This can be hard-wired and will be done in my child theme.
No problem (hopefully ;-) )February 22, 2012 at 6:29 pm #64607
errrr – actually I could use a hand here… my guess is that this part in the definitions for single post view in class-breadcrumb.php needs changing:Code:/* If there’s a path, check for parents. */
if ( !empty( $path ) )
$trail = array_merge( $trail, avia_breadcrumbs_get_parents( ”, $path ) );
…but HOW do I tell the bugger to link to the Blog page (/blog) instead of the category page “blog” (/category/blog), if the post only has the standard “blog” category assigned, and add “Blog” AND category to the trail in case that an additional category has been assigned.
What I try to get are breadcrumb trails on blog posts like this:
home -> blog -> someblogpost (if post is in blog category, and “blog” should be linked to the Blog page that has been assigned in the theme options)
home -> blog -> category -> someblogpost (if the post has an additional category assigned)
My PHP sucks, and I bet there is someone around who needs less than 30 sec to solve this… ;-)
P.S.: the link to the “Blog” page can be static by page ID, no need to make things more complicated than needed… :)
