Overstand Theme für WordPress 2.3

Die Suche nach einem geeigneten WordPress Theme für “fakeblog.de” gestaltete sich schwieriger als ich anfangs dachte. Ich wollte so etwas wie eine Art Magazin oder Zeitung. Ja, ich gebs zu, vielleicht sogar etwas wie dieses Bild Zeitungs Ding. Nur nicht ganz so reisserisch. Aber fette Headlines sollte fakeblog.de schon bekommen.

Overstand Theme – deutsche Version

(please click here for the english version)
Was also tun? Klar nach WordPressThemes gegoogelt und zig tausend Ergebnisse bekommen. Das einzige Theme, dass annähernd meinen Vorstellungen entsprach war das Upstart Blogger Futurosity Theme. Einziges Problem bei diesem Theme: Eindeutig zu viele Kategorien und dadurch zu viel Informationsflut auf der Startseite. Auch auf der Artikel Detailseite waren mir in diesem Theme zu viele Elemente, overstand?

Ah, da tauchte das Wort zum erstenmal auf: Overstand! Letztendlich führte kein Weg daran vorbei selbst Hand anzulegen und auf Basis des Futurosity Themes aktiv zu werden.

Demo Overstand Theme
Das Theme seht ihr bereits. fakeblog.de verwendet “Overstand”.

  • Sehr ansprechende Theme,

    würde es gerne benutzen. Leider werden bei mir die Kategorien aber lediglich in der Sidebar der Unterseiten dargestellt. Auf der “Titelseite” (=Der letzte Fake, VIP Fake, Design)kommen sie nicht mehr vor. Ich habe leider nicht viel Ahnung von WordPress. Habe den Code nicht verändert.

  • zuerst einmal danke für das lob. gerne kann ich dir bei deinem “problem” weiterhelfen. doch zuvor müsstest du mir einiges sagen:-)

    1. wo auf der startseite möchtest du denn die kategorien zeigen? die startseite hat ja einzelne bereiche. in der obersten reihe die kategorien. darunter dann “der letzte fake”,”mitmachen”, “abonnieren”, etc.
    die letzte reihe (die letzten drei spalten unten) ist ja auch frei definierbar.

    wie wäre es, wenn du die kategorien in einer dieser bereiche unterbringst? z.B. kannst du die inhalte der untersten reihe in der datei “bottom.php” ändern.

    du kannst dir hier eine modifizierte “bottom.php” datei herunterladen, und dir mal anschauen, wie du die kategorien auf die startseite einbinden kannst.

    als allgemeinen tipp:
    du kannst die kategorien überall einbauen, indem du einfach “wp_list_cats” aufrufst. eine genauere beschreibung findest du im deutschen wordpress forum

    ich hoffe das hilft dir weiter. bei weiteren fragen einfach fragen. ich bemühe mich dir so gut wie möglich helfen zu können.

  • Der Hit! Vielen Dank Floyd für Deine sehr rasche Antwort.
    Entschuldige zuerst, dass ich Dich damit belästige. Allerdings habe ich auch nach mehrstündigen Suchmaschinen-Exzessen („Problem-Kategorie-Futurosity“)keine Lösung gefunden. Ein weiteres Problem ist, dass ich absolut keine Ahnung von WordPress habe.
    1. „wo auf der startseite möchtest du denn die kategorien zeigen?“
    Ich möchte meine 3 Kategorien in der obersten Reihe darstellen. Wie bei Dir mit „Der letzte Fake“/ „VIP Fake“/ „Design“. Idealerweise mit lediglich den 2 aktuellsten Beiträgen in der jeweiligen Kategorie
    Zu Anfang wurden Kategorien dargestellt. Allerdings hat mir die Reihenfolge (von links nach rechts) der Kategorien nicht gefallen (Und auch ein Zeilenumbruch hat mir in der Überschrift nicht gefallen). Die Folge war ein bei Laien oft zu beobachtender Aktionismus der in einen Exzess von Kategorielöschen und Neuanlagen und anderen Aktivitäten mündete. (damit verbunden: hat die Kategorie-ID etwas zu sagen?)
    Resultat war: die Kategorien wurden lediglich in der Sidebar der Unterseiten dargestellt und natürlich auf den Archivseiten (auf die man allerdings nur über den Umweg der Seiten kommt).

    […25min..]

    Jupp, ich hab’s. Ich habe auf der home.php meine Kategorien-ID eingepflegt. Bitte nicht lachen…(warum muss die 2x mal dastehen?).

    Wunderbar, vielen Dank. Ohne Dich wäre ich da nicht draufgekommen.

    Wenn Du Lust hast kannst Du mir vielleicht noch folgende Feintuning-Antwort geben:
    Ich möchte auf den fixen Seiten – wie auch bei den einzelnen Beitragsseiten (also die wo nur der einzelne Beitrag steht) – am Anfang des Beitrags keine Initial und auch keine Großschrift haben. Wie kann ich das bewerkstelligen?

    Floyd vielen Dank für alles. Wirklich tolles Theme!

  • zu deiner feintuning frage:
    das Initial und die großschrift werden über die *.css datei angegeben.

    tipp: öffne im ordner “overstand” die datei “style.css”. wenn du dort die zeilen 583-595 auskommentierst oder löschst, dann wird die erste zeile mit normaler schrift dargestellt.

    auskommentieren kannst du mit /* am anfang und mit */ am ende.

    ich hoffe das hilft dir weiter.

  • Super. Danke. Es funkt !!!

  • I have a bit of a strange request, but first some compliments.

    You did a great job on this theme, you managed to turn an already awesome theme into a theme with even more style and class. Very nice job.

    I’m in the same boat you were in — looking for a suitable magazine type theme for use on a news blog.

    Here’s my problem. German isn’t my native tongue and I have no experience with it besides taking it in high school. Haha, I knew just enough to navigate your site and download your theme.

    Is there any way to easily change parts of the theme that are in German to English?

    I would love to use this theme, and I really appreciate any help you can provide me. Feel free to email me or reply here.

    Thank you and again — great work.

  • hi bryan,
    at first thanks for your kind words. it is no problem to change the language. i only had to do some changes in the files and here you go:

    download overstand english

    have fun and maybe you can tell me the URL of your site or when it will be online:-)

  • Sehr geehrter Floyd,
    dein theme ist nun bei unserem studienprojekt im einsatz: http://www.null-euro-urbanismus.de.

    vielen dank für die bereit- und hilfestellung.

  • Hey,

    dein Design ist top und ich benutze es auch für mein Blog. Hab aber eine Frage. Wenn man einen Artikel aufruft wird der erste Buchstabe ja ganz groß angezeigt, wie stell ich das ein, das er auch normal wie der restliche Text dargestellt wird??

    Gruß
    Martin

  • hi martin. das mit dem großbuchstaben am anfang wird über die “style.css” definiert. öffne die style.css und suche in zeile 592 nach:

    .single .entry-content p:first-child:first-line,.page .entry-content p:first-child:first-line,.four04 .entry-content p:first-child:first-line{
    font-variant:small-caps;
    text-transform:uppercase;
    }

    “text-transform: uppercase;” ist für die großschreibung verantwortlich. bei weiteren anpassungen solltest du nach “first-letter” suchen.

    danke für das kompliment mit dem design:-) freut mich, dass du verwendung dafür gefunden hast.

  • Hallo,
    zunächst einmal mein überschwängliches Lob für Dein überaus gelungenes Theme. Nach tagelangem Suchen bin ich darauf gestossen und finde es (zumal ich als Tageszeitungsredakteur klassische Layout bevorzuge) ideal für meinen Blog: http://www.writersworld.de. Allerdings bekomme ich eine Fehlermeldung beim Aufrufen einer einzelnen Seite unter “ähnlich gefakte Seite”. Wo kann ich in Deinem Theme da regulierend eingreifen?
    Freue mich auf Deine Antwort.
    Chaossegler

  • Hallo Chaossegler:-)
    hast du das Plugin Related Entries aktiviert? auf alle fälle liegt hier das problem. wenn du es aktiviert hast, hast du auch unter den plugin optionen die datnebankeinträge für das plugin machen lassen?

  • Vielen Dank für Deine schnelle Hilfe.
    Das beste schwäbische Lob gilt nun Dir: “Du bist ein granata Käpsele!”

  • Hi
    Ich nutze dein Theme auf meinen Blog und muss dir echt ein Riesen Lob machen. Einfach Super, Danke.

  • Hallo Floyd,

    erstaml großes kompliment und lob für dein fantastisches theme. wie man an meiner webseite sieht, verwende ich es, mit einigen anpassungen auch!

    jetzt eine frage:

    wie bekomme ich die statischen seiten aus dem header weg? ich möchte sie lediglich in der blogroll angezeigt bekommen. oder wie kann ich zumindest steuern, welche statischen seiten im header angezeigt werden und welche nicht?!

    danke für deine hilfe!

    dirk

  • Hi Dirk,
    wenn du die Datei “header.php” öffnest, dann findest du in Zeile 25 folgende php zeile:

    < ?php wp_list_pages('title_li=&sort_column=post_title&sort_order=desc&depth=1' ) ?>

    “list_pages” ist der Befehl, um die Seiten anzuzeigen. Solltest du das also nicht wollen, lösche einfach diese Zeile, dann sollte es funktionieren.

    Wenn du die Anzeige der Seiten steuern willst empfehle ich dir die WordPress Dokumentation, dort ist alles genau beschrieben. Diese findest du für “list_pages” hier bei der deutschen WordPress Community

    Hoffentlich hilft dir das weiter. Bei weiteren Fragen versuche ich dir gerne weiterzuhelfen.

    Hab Spaß!
    Floyd

  • Hallo Floyd,

    wie man sehen kann hat es funktioniert! danke für die Hilfe!

    Grüße

  • Is it possible to make the exceprts shorter on the openingspage?

  • hi ladda,
    when you write your post in your admin interface, scroll down a bit and you will see a text field with the headline “optional excerpt”. i hope it is called like that. it´s under the image upload fields. in the german version it´s called “optionale kurzfassung”, so it should be something like that. Enter your own excerpt text there and you´re done.

  • stupid me …
    was editing the theme to much/long and overlooked that is was in wordpress itself …

    Love the theme!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    (testing preview — dutch :)

  • hey, i’m having trouble and in the top row of the columns, I’m only getting two columns instead of three. anyone know whats up here?

    to see what im talking about go to:
    http://www.bannedinhollywood.com

  • when i try to use an post-image in my left collumn, it appears to small (like the other two columms …

    Help please ?

  • Hey ladda good old friend:-)
    in order to get the same size of the image as the left column is, you have add an point to the “style.css” file. the width and height of the images is defined there.

    insert this in “style.css”:
    img.title-image{
    border:1px solid silver;
    margin:5px 10px 5px 15px;
    padding:2px;
    width:430px;
    }

    after that:
    edit file “home.php” – in line 17 it says:
    “c2c_get_custom(‘post-image’,”

    change “post-image” into “title-image”.

    and last but not least:
    when you are writing a post, insert “title-image” instead of “post-image” in the “add custom field” field. link the desired image and it should work.

    great support, isn´t it? :-) sorry, just joking.
    hope you get things done. if not don´t hesitate to ask me. i will do my best to help you.

  • Hello!

    Love the theme but I’m having trouble with my categories. When I made a new one and tagged my new post with it, it doesn’t show up on my home page. Any suggestions?

  • Hi Robert,
    it is only possible to show 3 categories on the homepage. If you want to show more categories, you have to add a fourth column on the homepage. Therefore you have to edit the “home.php” and the “style.css”.

    Your categories are “news”, “design” and “typography”. Only articles, that are published in these categories can be displayed on the homepage. Another trick instead of adding a fourth column would be to publish your posts in different categories. You can do this via the admin panel when you are writing a post.

    Hope this would help you.

  • Hi, ich habe ein Problem. Soweit läuft alles aber die Bilder über dem Hauptbereich links sind zu klein (1. Artikel) oder gar nicht da (2. Artikel).
    Hast du eine schnelle Ahnung woran das liegt? Und noch einmal ein dickes Danke für das geile Theme.

  • Hi, habe das gemacht, was du gesagt hast, mein Bild in der linken Kategorie bleibt allerdings so klein. Hast du eine Ahnung woran das liegt?

  • hi hauptstadtstudent:-)
    freut mich, dass dir das overstand theme gefällt und du es auf deinem blog verwendest. hat das mit den bildern funktioniert?

    habe gerade eben mal vorbeigeschaut und meiner meinung nach sieht alles gut aus. oder hast du noch probleme mit den bildern?

  • hello
    very very nice
    how to show more than 1 category by column on homepage?
    to have something like that :

    Is there a way without publishing 1 article in multiple cat?

    Another thing : How to display somewhere a link to view all post in 1 column + sidebar in blogstyle-like?
    thanks a lot

  • hi marco,
    to show more than 1 category by column on homepage you need to edit the file “home.php” in the theme folder:

    e.g. you want to display posts from different categories in the first column. At first find out which “ID” your desired categories have. You will find this in the WP admin surface. In my example I will use ID 3 and ID 4.

    Line 9 in “home.php” in the brackets you will find:
    “category=3&numberposts=4″
    replace this with: “cat=3,4&numberposts=4″

    the same in line 13 in “home.php”:
    “category=3&numberposts=4″
    replace this with: “cat=3,4&numberposts=4″

    This will show you the latest 4 posts from categories ID 3 and ID 4.

    Your next question:
    How to display somewhere a link to view all post in
    1 column + sidebar in blogstyle-like?

    You have to add a new php template to the “overstand theme” folder. If you look at the files “archive.php” and “archives.php” they should give you inspiration for what you are looking for. Otherwise check the WordPress Codex, the most essential part of working with wordpress. If you would search for “archivs page” there, this is what you will get:

    WordPress Codex Search for “Archives page”.

    By the way, if you are on a post detail page you have the monthly archive in the right column:-) Hope this will help you out.

  • thanks
    I tryed using this :
    “cat=3,4&numberposts=4″ but its not working. Ive got a mess with of article, without the ones concerns..

    Anyway is it possible, to display all the sub-categories of a parent one?

  • hi marco,
    “cat=3,4&numberposts=4″ should work. I tested it out and it worked fine for me. Do the categories you want to display have the ID 3 and 4?

    Your second question: where do you want to show the subcategories? In the sidebar on the article detail page? If so, please check again the wordpress codex. You can get an answer for nearly everything there:

    WordPress Codex list categories

  • thanks for your answer.
    I ve got 3 main category
    cat1, cat2, cat3
    I got 4sub cat under cat1
    So I want to display on the main page in the 3rd column all the articles of the cat1 and his subs

    Last, maybe I ll found on the codex, but I’m sure you got the answer : How to Display all the images of the articles in an archive page ?

    Thanks again for your time & your skills
    peace

  • really nice theme for wordpress thanks

  • Absolutely beautifully done..:-) Really might be the very best magazine style WP derivation I’ve seen yet, (including the premiums) and I have looked at them all! Good luck and keep up the great work!

  • I really like the design of your theme. The two things I would like to change for my application is the ability to display a full post for the most recent article in each category on my home page (right now they are just excerpts) and I would like to remove the drop cap and uppercase first line style from the interior post page – how do I do this?

  • Hi Jesse,
    1. Display a full post for the most recent article:
    You can display all posts from a category in full length if you change “the_excerpt();” open the file “home.php” and go to line 22, 40 and 57. Replace “the_excerpt” with “the_content” and all your posts will be displayed with the full length. To only show the recent post in full length you have to write another loop. For more information about the wordpress loop please visit:

    Wordperss Codex about “The Loop”
    WordPress Codex about tag “the content”

    2. Remove the drop cap and uppercase first line style from the interior post page?
    Open the file “style.css”. If you comment out line 583-595 the first line will be displayed with the normal font size without uppercase and initial at the beginning. To test it, write /* in front of line 583 and */ after line 595. If the result is what you were looking for, you can delete the lines from “style.css”.

    Hope this helps you a little bit to go further with the theme. Have fun and thanks for using the overstand theme.

  • Hi Guys & Gals,

    Any ideas on my search bar? Why it appears on the left in FF but when I reload it jumps to the right?

    Thanks…

  • Hi Roger,
    sorry I can´t find any problems with the searchbar in firefox. The search bar is always on the right side, even after reloading your site. Tested on Windows with Firefox 2.0.0.12.

    Maybe you should comment out all references to “apple searchbar” in the css and in the “searchform.php” file? In style.css you´ll find the id “applesearch”. It is set to “float:right”. This could be another problem.

    Hope this will help you or give you a hint where to search. But remember. I don´t have the problem, when I visit your site.

  • First of all. Brilliant theme! I have been looking for something like this for a looooong time!

    I got a question and im NOT a coder but a magazine designer so bear with me :)

    Is it possible to swap the headline of the post with the categories? Right now the categories take up alot of space (in a black box) at the top of the post on the front page. I would like the headline of the post to be on top and in large writing and the categories to be under in small writing. Is this possible?

    I hope you understand :)

    Cheers!

  • hi thanks for the reply sorry for the late answer, i think it has something to do with my connection i use a vodafone datacard and i checked with someone else and its the same with their vodafone but if you use dsl or another connection no problem! very strange!!

    i urgently need someones help though can anyone take a look and tell me why the theme makes a scrollbar move to 2/3 of the page now i have wp e-commerce and dropshop activated?, i checked with the default theme it’s ok and some other themes it’s ok and some not!? i really have to use your theme!!!! also with your theme only does the bottom footer where you are supposed to drag items to buy appear smaller than any other theme any suggestions, please, pretty please!!!!!!

  • I want to add new categories in the main area, not only articles from 1 category.. how I can do this?

  • How can I integrate in main area plugin WP PageNavi ??? or maybe any method to show pagination

  • Hi,

    I’m using the english version of the overstand theme. For some reason the post/title-images in my main news (far left) column keeps getting resized and distorted to be smaller.

    I read under the comments section that you helped Ladda with something like this. I followed those instructions but it hasn’t seemed to have helped.

    What can I do to make the images display at their original size as a post/title image?

  • Good WordPress Theme

  • I wish I could read German. :-)

    First, thanks for this great theme, I really love it. I am brand new to WordPress and just installed it tonight. The first thing I wanted to do was get Overstand up and working. The install was good, and the theme is in place and looks nice, but I have a problem. I cannot get the sidebar to display in this Overstand theme. It does display correctly in the other two themes, but not in Overstand. Is there something I need to do? Thanks for any help you can provide.

  • hi robb,
    on the homepage no sidebar is implemented, because it should look like a magazine. if you go on an article detail page you have the sidebar on the right side. the file for the right sidebar is called “sidebar.php”. if you want to change the contents of the sidebar you have to edit the “sidebar.php” to your needs. compare it to the “sidebar.php” of the templates, where it is shown as you like. copy and paste it, ready to go.

    hope this helps you out

  • I have a problem with this theme on my blog. If a user posts a really long URL on my Overstand theme, the text extends out past the colored comment area. Is there a way to fix it?

    Thanks for your help,

    Robb
    P.S.

    I will attempt to post an example here for you with a long link from a google search:

    http://www.google.com/search?aq=f&complete=1&hl=en&q=fakeblog+overstand+theme+for+wordpress&btnG=Search

  • hi robb,
    the only way i know is to cut the URL after xxx characters. but i don´t know a good way to do it, because you don´t know where to cut. another possibility is to replace the url with an underlined word called “link” for example.

    or you just use google to search. here is a plugin:
    plugin url compacter

    or you search in google like this:
    long url comments wordpress. This gives you a lot of results. Sorry, but I don´t earn any money with the theme. People don´t even think about spending some bucks via paypal. Maybe I will turn this theme in an extended version as a payable donwload with a much better support.

    hope this helps you out a bit
    with kind regards

  • Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Actually, I was able to get an appropriate minimalistic sidebar on my front page that has a few necessary items (login and translator) and yet preserves the wonderful magazine look of this great theme. Blog is in early stages of construction, but you can visit if you like.

    As to the issue with long strings of text (especially URLs) extending out of the comment area, I found a nice solution. Open “style.css” and locate the “#comments” section. Now, just add “overflow:hidden;” (no quotes) so it looks like this:

    #comments{
    /*border-top:30px solid black;*/
    margin-top:24px;
    width:465px;
    overflow:hidden;
    }

    That will stop the string of text when it reaches the right edge of the comment area. If it is a live link, it will continue to be clickable. Best of all, the page stays neat and clean looking.

    Hope this helps others. You might try it here to see it fix the links above. Or come to my blog and add a long url or string comment to my first article and see it in action there. Either way, once again, thanks so much for an outstanding theme and for your kindness.

    Robb

    My yahoo is :pciorici an gtalk: cioricip

  • Great theme. Using it now and tweaking it some. I have a couple of questions:

    One how do incorporate simpleviwer or Flickr into the site?

    I love the tags at the bottom. How do implement tagging into the theme as well?

    And what are your thoughts of a blogroll on the home page?

    Let me know. Anxious to hear to hear your thoughts and answers.

    AWESOME JOB!!!

  • Hallo,

    zuerst mal Danke für das wundervolle Theme. Ich habe für die obere Leiste die Kategorien festgelegt. Teils werden aber im schwarzen Kasten mehrere angezeigt, was zu häßlichen Zeilenumbrüchen und Überlagerungen führt. Wie kann ich das verhindern?

    Danke & Gruß
    Kal

  • hi kal,
    öffne die datei “home.php” und schaue nach, welche kategorien abgerufen werden. bevor du das machst, öffne deine wordpress administration und schaue unter dem punkt “verwalten” -> “kategorien” nach, welche ID´s die gewünschten kategorien besitzen. diese musst du dann in der home.php einfügen.

    zeile 9 in “home.php”:
    category=3&numberposts=1

    zeile 13 in “home.php”:
    category=3&numberposts=1

    hier musst du dann jeweils die kategorie id eingeben. also statt der “3″ jeweils deine gewünschte ID.

    ich hoffe das hilft dir weiter.

  • Hi,

    danke für deine schnelle Antwort. Das habe ich bereits gemacht und es funktioniert auch. Außer eben in der rechten Spalte. Dort werden mir je nach gewählter Kategorie mehrere nebeneinander oder überlappend angezeigt. In den beiden anderen Spalten jedoch nicht. In der Home PHP habe ich natürlich nur jeweils eine ID eingetragen. Weiß jetzt nicht so recht weiter :-(

    Danke & Gruß

  • Hello, this is a very wonderful theme you did a fantastic job. I have just one question, “is this theme compatible with wordpress 2.5?”

  • cool theme.

  • Really nice theme! Thank you very much, I may just have to switch over to this new one…

  • Really nice template! Is there any chances to see a Blogger version of this sometimes in the future?

  • Hi,

    first of all, thank you for this outstanding theme!

    I’m trying to install it and I’m getting and odd behaviour: the feeds only show the excerpt of the post, whatever option I choose in WP configuration. Any workaround for it?

    Thank you!
    Thanks in advance!

  • Hello. I need your help. And I need it pretty fast. Please send me your mail, so I can contact you. :)

  • Hi. I am trying to add thumbnails onto my Blog using the custom field values. I followed the instructions given on on the fakeblog, but when I tried viewing my site, the picture did not appear. There was space allocated to the picture but the only thing that appeared was

    The line that i have addded as value in the custom fields is:

    http://www.summersolero.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/overstand_en/images/quotes.gif

    I appreciate your answer to this, this overstand template is good and I want to figure out how it works totally ~~~

  • Hey, nice theme you uploaded there but indeed I have a few problems need to be sorted out quickly.
    After the installation as usual I viewed my site but apparently it only displayed those post that were uncategorized while my categorized posts missing.
    The column seemed to be resize to become smaller and the top 2nd and 3rd column were missing. Any solution for this?

  • nice theme felicidades hermano!

    i want to know how can i set to display the last 4 post per each category in the home ?

    tks

  • hi fakeblog,
    your theme is one of the greatest i’ve ever seen…thank you so much to let it available
    just a question if you can…
    i can’t figure it out the recent comments on my blog page
    http://piacenzafutura.net/?page_id=7
    sure you know
    hope you have time for..
    best wishes

  • Hi There,

    Is there anyway to make one of the page links at the top right (above the search bar) link to another URL/website instead of internally to a page created?

    Thanks.

  • Thanks good thema adn documents .

  • Thanks for creating such a nice template and making it available to the Web community.

    I am having a couple of problems:

    1) On my main Blog page it only lists my two most recent blog entries. This is no doubt due to the fact that all my blog entries currently have the same category assigned: “blog”

    So my first question is: how did you intend site visitors to reach blog entries that are NOT displayed on the main blog page?

    2: My second problem is, I hope, much easier. On the right hand side where the blog pages are listed…I have 3 pages Welcome, Blog and Contact….currently there are no spaces between these words…why is that happening? Do you think it has something to do with the width of the movie I have playing in the middle column? How do I fix this?

    Again, thanks so much!!!! Steve

  • Hi,

    Just as an update…I’ve been able to work around some of the issues I brought up in my earlier comment.

    Basically I made several edits to the home.php and CSS files so that it now shows ALL my posts but only from one category – that’s a limitation I will have to live with.

    In the CSS files I made the columns much wider since I am now only showing one categories postings, not three.

    I still have the problem with the blog post page itself where in the sidebar all 3 of my listed pages are squeezed together with no space in between them.

    Also, I noticed that even on your site the page listing above the search bar is very cramped. That’s my next little project to see if I can come up with some simple solution since I am no php expert that’s for sure!

    But first I still need to check these CSS and page layout changes I made in Internet Explorer on a PC since I work on a Mac in Firefox.

    Steve

  • hello,

    Thanks for producing such a wonderful theme.

    I have a problem, in 404 pages, the random post links all direct to the requested url, which is wrong, both the ones in sidebar and the ones in the content.

    For example, if i request, http://www.example.com/sadasdjh

    the random post links all direct me to http://www.example.com/sadasdjh, although the titles are correct.

    Best regards
    ömer faruk

  • Hello,

    What can you suggest for long category titles those cause overflow?

    In firefox, it is cut, however, in ie the blocks all slip and the layout goes odd.

    Best regards

  • I have followed your advice for changing what is displayed on the front page. But it just won’t work.

    When i tell it to display 15,21 it will only display category 15 but not 21

    but when i tell it to display 21,15 ti will only display category 21 on the front page.

    Any help? Lovin the theme

  • Csusz krszgot … I’m just start to explore on wordpress. I like your theme, really…

  • Hi i have a new blog, that uses this theme.

    You can check it out over at…

    http://www.iDesign-Visions.com!

    Dont forget to let me know what you think…:)

    Ben

  • Hi, after your comment, I have added the following to the footer of iDesign-Visions..

    “iDesign-Visions.com ulilizes the overstand theme.”

    “overstand theme” is linked to fakeblog.de

    Ben

  • I would like to add a flikr feed to one of the last columns in the template, how would you advise i go about this?

  • I have the same problem of Ladda, for the post image in the first column (title-image). I did the changes in css and home.php but the image is always small… Can you help me please?

  • Hallo,

    erstmal ein Kompliment an dich. Super Theme was Du da hast.

    Ich habe nur Probleme mit der Anpassung der Kategorien in den dunklen (schwarzen) Balken im oberen Bereich. Warum werden mir da mehere Kategorien angezeigt?
    Habe jetzt schon ewig rumprobiert und komme da jetzt nicht mehr weiter. Ich hoffe das du mir helfen kannst.

    Freundliche Grüße

  • Hello there,

    first of all I must say that it’s by far one of the best, if not the best, theme I’ve seen out there and can’t wait to set it up correctly.

    I have a problem though, so please help me if you can, I would appreciate it…

    I am posting in new categories to see how it works. I have the uncategorized, and two other new categories but it seems that when I published something in all categories I can’t see all of my posts and in addition to that the width of the column is narrow (they all have the same width).

    I haven’t used any images yet and I intend to write my posts in greek, I don’t know if this has anything to do with the problem but I say it just in case…

    Great work anyway, congratulations!

  • I did it with a little translation… and feel very happy! Thanks anyway! And again… great job!

  • Nice WP Theme. I’ll use this for my new blog! Thanks!

  • Great theme, themes how it should be really…

  • Hallo!

    I am having a problem with my main page and I apologize if the question was answered earlier.

    The third column (farthest to the right) isn’t showing any content. Is there a way to have another category (random or assigned) show up in the third column?

    Danke!

  • Hi

    I love this theme!

    However, I am having problems getting the 3rd category to appear on the home page:

    http://ianapplegate.co.uk/womeninbusiness/

    Can you work out why? I have created posts in 3 or 4 categories but only the first two are showing.

    Thanks,

    Ian

  • Hi Ian,
    I can´t tell you, why the third category doesn´t appear. Did you check the “ID” of your third category? You have to put in the “ID” into the file “home.php”. Open the “home.php” file and look in line 9,13,28,32,45,49. There you will find the positions of your categories. Line 9,13 are for the first category (on the left side). 28,32 are for the second category (middle). 45,49 for the third category (right side).

    Go to these lines and put the values of your desired categories in, e.g. “category=1&numberofposts=1″: if your category has the ID 2, you have to put in 2 instead of 1. You find the ID´s of your categories in the WordPress Administration panel.

    I hope this will solve your problem.

  • Thanks for the great WordPress template. It is better than anything else I have found.

    I have it on my site at http://tellbarack.org. It is a site I have been developing for everyone to get involved after he is elected on November 5 here.

    I am still working on the READ MORE links. When it shows [,,,], I don’t get a link to the full post but I am still working on it.

    Thanks again for the great template.

    –Tom

  • Hi, this was a nice template that i use in my site,
    Thank for share…

    but i have problem that not all my post appear in my main page,
    please give me assistance..

    TQ

  • help me…

    i use your template

    not of all my posting appear in main page, even i create new post.

    how can i fix it?

    thanks

  • Klasse Theme – Vielen Dank für die Bereitstellung!

  • This is the coolest template I have ever seen. Any chance you’ll be doing a Blogger version? I don’t use wordpress, because although it’s better than Blogger, it’s not free if you want to customize it TT_TT

  • I’m having trouble with getting the categories to show up. You said there should be 3 categories, but I’m only getting two. I’ve also tried what you said above, making the first column wider with title-image instead of post-image, but that didn’t work. What’s supposed to be on the right 2 columns on top? Nothing is showing up there. Here is the site: http://www.designturd.com Please let me know. Thank you so much.

  • Vielen Dank für Bereitstellung des Themes, finde es großartig!

  • Is there a way to add adsense on this?

  • Hi there –
    I am trying to figure out a way to have the header image link back to the main page – and as far as I can tell from my searches it is not possible to do this in CSS without some funky workarounds – and everyone suggests moving the image into the html code and linking from there/that way. I am not quite sure how to do this – do i insert the graphic link into header.php or will that throw everything off?
    Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for creating such a great theme!!

  • Thank you very much for infu. The author RESPECT and uvazhuha.

  • I’m not too sure how to work this out…i’m pretty rubbish at wp! But

    I assumed the first three bars (der letze fake, vip fake design) were automatically generated by generating WP Dashboard’s Categories…and it ha been like that, just once, and then everything disappeared :( why?
    Danke!

  • I’ve recently begun using your blog template but I cannot figure out how to make my excerpts show in the three columns as you do on your home page (see my link above). Can you please help? I am new to blogging but run a successful online vintage clothing business. Love your blog design. Cheers, Tina

  • I have now changed the code as you suggested above. I can now get three columns to display. However, now all three columns show the same posts, even though they are in different categories with no overlap. Please advise!

  • So, I’ve solved my layout difficulties on the home page of the blog. Now I am having a problem getting any sidebar to show up on any pages at all. I know it’s not supposed to be on the home page, but the sidebar does not appear on any single post page or any other page. If you are able to direct me at all, please do so. I have explored the sites of all the people asking questions up until this point, and it seems many people have changed layouts so I cannot get any help from anyone but you.

  • Herzlichen Dank für Ihr tolles Theme. Es ist für mich vom Layout einfach ganz anders als viele andere WordPress-Themes. Da meine Seminare ganz anders sind, als die üblichen Standardseminare. Deshalb suchte ich ein Theme, das auch ganz anders ist.
    Eine Frage: Die Seiten rechts oben neben dem Suchfeld hängen zu sehr ins Suchfeld rein. Wie kann man das ändern?

  • Hallo Herr Kopp-Wichmann,
    zuerst einmal vielen Dank für Ihr Lob bzgl. des Overstand Themes. Die Seitennavigation hängt seit Firefox 3 zu sehr ins Suchfeld. Im Internet Explorer sollte alles passen. Sie können das Problem aber relativ einfach lösen.

    Sie müssen die Position des Suchfeldes anpassen. Dies funktioniert in
    Wordpress alles über die beiden *.css Dateien, also “iealternate.css” und
    “style.css”. Die style.css definiert alles. Die “iealternate.css” gibt es, um unterschiedliche Darstellungen im Internet Explorer abzufangen.

    Die Suche wird in der “style.css” gleich zu Beginn definiert:

    #applesearch{
    float:right;
    margin:-30px 0 0 0;
    padding:0;
    }

    Ändern Sie dies in folgendes ab:

    #applesearch{
    float:right;
    margin:-20px 0 0 0;
    padding:0;
    }

    Wenn Sie das geändert haben, wird allerdings das Suchfeld auch im Internet Explorer seine Position ändern. Um das zu verhindern, kopieren Sie folgendes an den Beginn der Datei “iealternate.css”:

    #applesearch{
    float:right;
    margin:-30px 0 0 0;
    padding:0;
    }

    Ich hoffe, dies kann Ihr Problem lösen.

  • It’s great theme, but there is a problem in IE6. Sidebar div goes to the bottom-left. And I do not know how to fix it. Could you help me and write me on email?
    Thank you

  • Hey love the theme but I have a question about how to get the thumbnails to appear above the headings. I have tried using the get custom fields values plugin but cannot seem tog et the image into the field. All there is, is a space where teh image should be. Please help. Ill put my web address so you can see what Im talking about. I believe I am using the german version of the layout.

    http://www.criticalspeech.com

  • hi mitch,
    how do you add the pictures to the article? when you write your article in the admin panel, scroll down where you can see “custom fields”. add “post-image” into the key field. in the value field enter the complete adress to your image, e.g. “http://www.criticalspeech.com/wp-content/themes/overstand/images/title_of_your_image.jpg” without the quotation marks. then it should work.

    regards

  • Can anyone confirm if this theme still works on the latest wp2.7? I like the feature how the first letter of the first paragraph being resize. Thanks

  • Awesome Theme- It’s really sleek and unique. I think ill be switching to this!

  • Hi, I love this theme but have a prblem with the search bar overwriting the page list at the top right of the page. Do you have a fix for this please?

  • i just install this cool theme, but i still cant make the third category show up in my page, please check my blog at http://blog.rahadian.com/.
    thanks in advance…

  • Hello Floyd, thank you for great theme, the only one I have seen that looks good, reads good and is easy to work with (and is free!).

    I too struggled with getting the right columns to display on the title page – I figured out the page IDs were the problem after many minutes scratching my head, then after I’d worked it out I read all the comments here and saw that you’ve told the same thing to lots of people. Doh!

    The English version is great, I would just point out that there are a few German words still there – for instance “Artikle von…” and “webseite” in the single blog pages. I’m going to track them all down then if you like, I’ll send you the modified code.

  • wie kann ich google adsence in die seite integrieren ?? Danke !!

  • Hi, I started to use your theme to start my blog. This is awesome, well done. Thanks a lot for the great work.

  • nice theme.. İs it fake : )

  • Hi, I can’t seem to get the post-image or pre-image to work for the music/festival section. (Basically the large section)

    Please help :(
    Here’s the site: http://latenightsociety.com/

  • Ciao Floyd
    Auch dir herzlichen Dank und Gratulation zu deinem Fakeblog. Ich habe selbstverständlich das Theme auch benutzt. Danke. Ich habe jetzt noch eine kleine Frage. Wie kann man auf der ersten Zeile (bei dir der letzte Fake) das Bild auf die gleiche Länge festlegen. Bei mir wird das Bild immer komprimiert.
    Danke für deine Hilfe.

    Gruss & Danke
    Roger

  • Hallo Floyd,
    ich bin blutige Anfängerin bei WordPress. Dein Theme hat es mir angetan, und ich möchte es unbedingt für meine Homepage verwenden. Der Schwerpunkt der Page soll auf den statischen Seiten liegen, aber genau hier liegt mein Problem: die statischen Seiten werden nicht angezeigt! Ich weiß nicht, was ich da machen soll. Die Seiten sind angelegt, enthalten einfachen Text, Hierarchie und Reihenfolge habe ich soweit hingekriegt. Die Seiten werden auch im Seitenmenü auf der Startseite angezeigt, aber sie sind nicht aufrufbar, obwohl sie “veröffentlicht” sind. Hast du einen Tipp? Gruß, Kathrin

  • Great theme!! I have one little issue. At the top right, the page links are getting overlapped a little by the search field.
    How can I adjust this?

    Thanks! MJ

  • hello
    everything seems to work fine (I have WP 2.7.1 version) unless that I can’t see the latest posts :(
    There’s only one post now but I can’t see it.
    I see blank space and the fixed columns.
    Any idea?
    check www . asnmedia . com . ar
    thanks!!!!

    Thanks!!!!

  • This is the best WordPress theme I have seen—kudos to you!

  • Hi man! =D

    I using your theme in my blog (www.blablaismo.com.br) but i have a little question for you:

    I’m trying insert gravatar on comments. But when i insert the code, appears the post author’s gravatar and not the comment author’s gravatar. What i need to do.

    Thank
    Wagner Brito

  • For the title-image to work properly, you also have to change the next instance of post-image to title-image in line 17 of home.php that was mentioned earlier.

    In summary, line 17 should be like this:
    <?php echo c2c_get_custom(‘title-image’,'<img src=”‘,’” alt=”" class=”title-image” />’,”); ?>

    And don’t forget to make the addition in style.css that was pointed out in a comment here.

  • lol… now i see it…

    Hello guys…
    Thanks for the great job!
    A have a little QUESTION (lol)… how i can put images in my posts like you make?

  • Ein wirklich tolles Theme ! Klasse, danke dir dafür. Doch ein Problem gibts scheinbar immer noch. Hab die Frage schon 2 x gelesen aber keine Antwort darauf gefunden. Beim Plugin Image Replacements kommt folgende Fehlermeldung:
    Warning: opendir(/home/www/web110/html/webblueten/wp-content/plugins/wp-imagereplacement-fonts/) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /home/www/web110/html/webblueten/wp-content/plugins/wp-imagereplacement.php on line 463

    Was kann man tun ? Scheinbar ist das Plugin nur für WP 2.3 geeignet. Gibt es eine Ausweichmöglichkeit oder eine andere Idee ?

    Lieben Dank für deine Antwort :-)

  • Hab mir das Theme auch mal installiert: http://metropolog.de/2009/08/06/neues-design/ Kommt echt super. Danke!

  • Thanks for the awesome theme!

  • Nice design. i’ll use this theme for my blog.

  • Heya!

    Great theme, it’s been exactly what I’ve been looking for ages.

    Only when I downloaded it, I had all sorts of problems… I don’t know why this is (It seemed like some of the code was slightly buggy or mismatched).

    First the three category columns did not work properly. There was only one column on the left, which was the main column, and it was only about 300px in width. I had other categories with posts in them, but the other columns did not show.

    Now I can’t seem to post thumbnail images on the homepage. I did exactly as told, to put “post-image” in custom key and then the value.

    Can someone offer a helpful solution?

  • Its Really a wondeful and pretty theme, which i would like to
    install on my ATIF Aslam Blog

  • cool theme

  • Hi, awesome theme..

    just having a play around, i cant get Page Order working as per normal…still displays alphabetically with page orders activated

    ???

  • Hello,

    I am also still have problems with the third column in my layout. I have looked at your early comment and tried what you have suggested — but it has not helped. Could you please help me?

    The same goes with the comments on the homepage. It’s not showing up either.

  • Hi,

    first I thank you for your theme. It is goood… I switched from “Default” WP theme just 2 days ago. I have only one problem, I have 3 categories (Rubrik in Czech language – “Info”, “Foto” and “Results”) But visible is only 1 category. (I have many posts in other 2 categories). What a mystake? What can I do? Thanks for your response. Pavel

  • Hello! I am trying to set up your beautiful blog…but am stuck on the category topic that you have already answered numerous times.. I just can’t seem to figure it out. I will try to explain as clear as possible…

    I have three categories: News, Webisodes, Cast.

    There doesn’t seem to be category IDs besides the actual names. I followed the documentation instructions but just the word comes up, not a ID #.

    I have edited the home.php file with each cat listed as:

    ‘category=webisodes&numberposts=1′ ); ?>…
    ‘category=webisodes&numberposts=3′ ); ?>

    ‘category=news&numberposts=1′ ); ?>…
    ‘category=news&numberposts=3′ ); ?>

    ‘category=cast&numberposts=1′ ); ?>…
    ‘category=cast&numberposts=3′ ); ?>

    As you can see, the only cat it lists is NEWS. I am so confused and would love your help. Code is not my forte. :( Thank you!

  • Well, I just put random numbers in there until it worked out right…I guess that will hold strong??? And somehow the News section carries all the stories…which is nice, but not on purpose.
    It would be nice to understand the logic overall…Until then, Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful blog theme. :)

  • @Yetta:

    you have to fill in the ID number of your category, not the category name,e.g. if your category “News” has the ID 3, you have to fill in the number into the home.php file like this:

    ‘category=3&numberposts=1′ ); ?>…
    ‘category=3&numberposts=3′ ); ?>

    This means that the latest 3 posts from category “News” will be shown on the blog.

    Hope this helps you.
    Floyd

  • hello I need help with this theme

    so my page it only displays news but it doesnt display the other two columns.

    what seems to be the problem? am i missing plugins? can u please tell me what to do here in order to fix this?

    Thank You very much

  • nice themes a itry it

  • Hi,

    zunächst Gratulation zu dem gelungenen Theme. Ist echt klasse und kommt jetzt hier http://www.world-habitat-society.org zum Einsatz. Allerdings habe ich ein Darstellungsproblem im IE mit dem Footer und Bottom, wo irgendwie falsch umgebrochen wird. Hast Du einen Tipp? Gruß Henning

  • Hi!
    Great theme, ich liebe es!

    I’m trying to change the image that currently reads BLOGTITLE, i’ve created another image in the size that you prescribed (945 by 183 pixels), and uploaded that via FTP to the images folder in the overstand theme.
    then i went to style.css to try to change it, but i have been unsuccessful!
    can you please help?

    thank you!

  • @karen:
    Did you just overwrite the old header image? The image should be in the following theme folder:overstand/images

    Do you use jpeg or gif? Is the path in the css file correct? This is the section where you should replace the image:

    #header {
    background:transparent url(images/fakeblog_title.gif) no-repeat scroll 0 0;
    height:180px;
    margin:20px 0;
    width:945px;
    }

  • hey,

    i have a question, as you can see on de website,
    http://www.brusselscooperation.be/beceen are the categories smasht into eachother.

    can you help me with this?

  • Hi Floyd,
    wirklich ein fantastisches Theme. Leider habe ich dasselbe Problem wie viele andere: doppelte Kategorieanzeige auf der Startseite (i.e. die erste Kategorie und damit auch der erste Artikel werden doppelt angezeigt) und überlappende Headlines. Die Bilderanzeige funktioniert auch nicht, aber das scheint wohl eher am Plugin zu liegen?? also wie werde ich die doppelte Kategorie los, bittebitte?

    besten Dank!
    fröhliche Grüße Feline

  • @Feline:
    ich kann nur Vermutungen anstellen, da ich deine “home.php” nicht kenne. Es müsste dort der Fehler liegen.

    Prinzipiell zum Verständnis: du musst die ID jeder Kategorie für jede Spalte angeben.

    Öffne die Datei “home.php” im Theme Verzeichnis.

    Spalte 1 (links) wird hier definiert:
    Zeile 9: category=3&numberposts=1
    Zeile 13: category=3&numberposts=2

    Die Zahl hinter “category”, in diesem Fall die “3″ ist die ID deiner Kategorie. Die ID findest du im Worpress Administrationsbereich unter “Kategorien”. Wenn deine Kategorie die ID “2″ hat, musst du die Zahl eintragen. numberposts bedeutet wie viele Artikel angezeigt werden sollen. in diesem Fall 2. Möchtest du mehr anzeigen, dann musst du die Zahl hinter numberposts in Zeile 13 ändern.

    Spalte 2 (Mitte) wird hier definiert:
    Zeile 28: category=1&numberposts=1
    Zeile 32: category=1&numberposts=1

    Spalte 3 (rechts) wird hier definiert:
    Zeile 45: category=4&numberposts=1
    Zeile 49: category=4&numberposts=1

    Das Vorgehen ist wie bei Spalte 1. Du musst hier die ID deiner gewünschten Kategorie in jeweils beiden zeilen anpassen.

    Prinzipiell: wenn du einen Artikel schreibst und diesem mehreren Kategorien zuordnest, dann erscheint dieser natürlich doppelt.

    Ich hoffe ich konnte dir etwas weiterhelfen.

  • Hi, just installed your theme, which is great.
    And must of the problems, have been solved reading the previous comments. But, in the english version, “about”, is hidden behind the search bar, so I don’t know how to change it. can you help?

    And, can a background image be used? Thank you so much.

  • First of all.. great theme! Nice and clear layout. Although I have a question; I started to customise the theme and I do have three categories in my posts, but only one shows up on the actual site. I tried to find where the ‘ ID’ is for the category, but I don’t know where to specify it. I read all the other comments as well, but didn’t manage to fix it. When the code calls for a ‘ UL Class ID’ , it says twice ‘latestoneandahalf’.. is this maybe the problem?
    Thanking you in advance!

  • Zunächst mal auch lobende Worte für das gelungene Theme. Weiterhin hoffe ich, dass Ihr über die Weihnachtstage viel gutes Essen bekommen habt, und nun die Kräfte existent sind um Euch mit einer weiteren Frage zu bedrängen.
    Das Thema der Zuordnung der Kategorie ID´s ist ja oft gefragt und beantwortet worden. Nur in WP 2.9 gibt es keine Kategorie ID mehr unter der Rubrik “Kategorien”, bzw. werden diese nicht mehr angezeigt. Wie mache ich denn jetzt die Zuordung?
    Liebe Grüße aus Köln

  • Meine Anfrage von gestern hat sich erledigt. Die Kategorie ID´s werden wohl bereits seit WP 2.5 nicht mehr angezeigt. Es gibt aber ein Plugin mit dem Namen “Reveal ID´s for WP Admin”. Damit werden die ID´s wieder angezeigt und die Zuordnung ist leicht zu realisieren.

  • Besten Dank für das Theme. Wir haben allerdings ein bisschen was umgestaltet :-)

  • Great Theme!

  • Hi, great theme. Just one question. When I add an image using the post-image function, sometimes in my Home, the image does not appear, and instead of that, it shows – – Why is that? What may be wrong? Thanks!

  • has anyone by any chance have translated this theme to spanish? español?

  • Hi,
    I would like to know if I can add my twitter updates and how can I do it.

    thanks, I appreciate the effort

  • Is there a basic manual in english available? This theme is amazing, but I am struggling with customizing it, as many of your questions that you generously answer are not in English. thanks!

  • Great design, having a problem with something basic. How do I change the font and position of the title of my blog? I’ve searched through all the edits and cannot find it. Thanks!

  • Hallo,

    danke erstmal für das coole Theme.

    Meine Frage:
    Wie bekommt man. wenn ein Artikel angezeigt wird, den grauen Vorschautext in der linken Seite weg?

    Danke!

  • Hello, I like much his(her,your) topic is wonderful for the page that I am doing, but I do not still have like his, in I make concrete the small images it is not positioned in the front page I have changed the home php according to his comments but something fails, if it could send the e-mail I can send the home php, am not a programmer, a cordial greeting (I speak Spanish and my English is basic) regards!.

  • Hi,

    first I thank you for your theme. It is goood… I switched from “Default” WP theme just 2 days ago. I have only one problem, I have 3 categories (Rubrik in Czech language – “Info”, “Foto” and “Results”) But visible is only 1 category. (I have many posts in other 2 categories). What a mystake? What can I do? Thanks for your response. Pavel

  • hallo!
    vielen dank für dieses großartige theme! wir verwenden es bereits. nur ist ein seltsames problem aufgetreten. wenn ein neuer beitrag gpostet wird, erscheint der kategoriebalken auf der startseite doppelt. wie kann ich das abstellen?
    beste grüße, andreas

  • It nice theme .Thank a lot. I think this theme is so good for website.I like white and orange color.It make sense to comfortable feeling. It good theme.Is available on 2.9.2 ? I will bring it to my website

  • How do I get links from the post appear on the homepage. And how can I put the option: “more”?

  • I can’t get thumbnails to post on the main page. I want to use the wordpress thumbnails for each post, how do I do this?

  • Help :-) I’ve spent a few days trying to work out your beautiful wordpress theme, but I’m stuck. My website/blog is:

    http://aguidetowebsites.com/

    On the home page, there are 3 columns, but only the first column is populated with one Category.

    I am assuming – possibly incorrectly – that the other two columns are other Categories.

    Is this correct?

    I am also assuming – possibly incorrectly – that the 2nd and 3rd column will be populated automatically.

    Is this correct?

    If I can get this to work I’ll be very very happy! Thank you so much in advance!

    Love your work!

  • Hallo!
    Ein tolles Theme und ich verwende es nun auch.
    Nach einiger Zeit der Einarbeitung (ich habe nicht viel Ahnung), klappt es nun auch alles ganz gut. Eine Frage habe ich allerdings. Ich verwende die Smilies (z.B. http://www.endgueltig.com/2010/07/29/sind-lehrer-akademiker/)und manchmal auch Sterne (zum Beispiel bei Reviews); diese sind mit dem Kästchen sichtbar (ich denke, weil es Bilder sind). Wie ändere ich das? Wie entferne ich den Rahmen um Bilder?
    Danke für die Hilfe.

  • Hi,

    We love this theme but prefer to use the Categpry Template as the opening page instead of the current home.php. We’ve tried removing the code from that page and from index.php and replacing both with the same code as what we have in Category Template, but something is overriding the layout for index.php. I’m not seeing it in the stylesheet. What controls the style/layout of index.php?

  • wirklich klasse theme. aber 2 fragen/probleme hätte ich:
    ich bekomme es nicht hin, dass auf der startseite mehr als 2 artikel gelistet werden (aus einer kategorie)

    und das 2.: ich bekomme es ebendso nicht hin, dass meine linke spalte breiter ist als die rechte. es vergrößern sich die anderen spalten immer mit. ein paar tipps wären nett.
    mfg

  • Can anyone confirm if this theme still works on the latest wp2.7? I like the feature how the first letter of the first paragraph being resize.

    I really like the design of your theme. The two things I would like to change for my application is the ability to display a full post for the most recent article in each category on my home page (right now they are just excerpts) and I would like to remove the drop cap and uppercase first line style from the interior post page – how do I do this?
    Thanks

  • Hi Floyd & everyone,
    it´s really the best theme ever written, thank you so much!!
    I am using it for years now on three pages
    http://www.musik-erlaubt.de
    http://www.canteatro.com
    http://www.musica-si.es
    and keep pimping ;-)
    but still I keep getting problems, like this new one:
    on http://www.musik-erlaubt.de suddenly the third column/first row broke out and is shown below. no idea why, all I did was installing some plugins (deactivating didn´t help, btw). All columns are set to two-col. Anybody got an idea what happened here and how I can get it back to work?
    thank you soooo much!
    Feline

    • Hi Feline,
      watch out for the div called “content”. The third column/first row is shown below because the div called “content” is closing before this column.

      • thank you so much – got it working! fake on Floyd!

  • I’m having troubles finding the Custom Field Values page in WordPress, it’s not under Posts or any other section for that matter. I’m running the latest WordPress installation. I know it’s a silly question, but I can’t find it anywhere and the plugin creator’s page isn’t offering any information.

  • great theme!!1 im having trouble with the third column i cant get it to show up. what am i doing wrong? my website is http://www.60daysandnights.co

  • I like this theme it is very nice and clear.
