Experiencing problems trying to customise Newscast. Hopefully some or all of these can be resolved here on the forum. I also have some questions. Here we go:
1. Mainpage Images
- Post thumbnail (180 x 180 post listing thumb): not showing, just the preloading gif
- Accordion Slider also displays preloading gif (we have ensured images are the correct width) for each item
2. Accordion Slider
Sometimes, the Accordion slider doesn't load at all/takes several refreshes to load.
Can we have one to the right of the logo? If so, how can we place it? We know we can achieve this in an image but would rather give our client the SEO advantages of text
4. Child Theme friendly?
We'd like to put changes and customisations into a child theme to avoid major hassle and wasted time every time there is a theme update. is there any reason why we shouldn't be able to do this with Newscast?
5. Image Opacity Weirdness (with even weirder side effects!)
We're trying to drop a newsletter signup form into the sidebar (Aweber HTML form, but w/customisation). This includes an image of a book which, when previewed, is invisible (but selectable). The problem appears to be the forcing of an opacity=0 value by what appears to be a JS process, when viewed in Dev tools:
- When we try to apply the styling directly to the image element it appears to be overridden by 'JSActive'. When we change the image value from 'hidden' to 'visible' - not only do all the thumbs missing on Question 1 suddenly appear (!!!), but the *accordion slider* then disappears altogether - go figure!!!
Hoping you can help us resolve these issues - these apart, it's a stunning theme that will really do justice to my client's great content.
