    I’m trying to use Citizen Kane Theme on my BuddyPress, but I can’t find the right options, or the way to configure it like it seems in the theme screenshot.

    And I can’t find any tutorial for this theme.

    Sory for my bad english, I’m from Argentina

    @amattajm directions are in the readme file.

    ******How to set up featured posts*****

    To show a featured post place it into a category ‘featured’

    To show an post in the midbar column place it into a category ‘breaking’

    ******How to set up custom front page*****

    Create a page called home and choose ‘Widget Home Page’ as the page template. Then in admin >> reading choose your created home page as the static front page.

    The custom front page shows one featured post and four thumbs of the latest posts. The midbar shows two ‘breaking’ posts. The rest of the front page is made up from widgets.

    To show a thumbnail on the front page posts just set an image as a featured image. Thumbnails are automatically cropped. To create exact thumbnails use the sizes listed below

    Thumbnail sizes:

    featured 405×175
    midbar: 150×150
    sub content: 190×100

    ******How to set up custom front page widgets*****

    Widget areas include the sidebar that is a site wide column. The midbar, only on the front page. The bottom left column under the latest posts.

    ******How to set up sidebar ad space*****

    Add your 300×250 ad code to sidebar.php file.

    switch out the image file in the theme folder. I think it’s logo.png

    Ah! I was thrown by a prompt that said the theme offered logo management – perhaps the mention referred to the default buddypress theme. I appreciate your answer, though.

    @modemlooper

    Go into file widget-home.php and change

    query_posts(“cat=-$id”);

    to

    query_posts(“cat=-$id&showposts=6″);

    Change the number to the amount of posts you want to see

    super thanks modemlooper is working.

    one more question.
    how can I change the space between this thumbs in the latest posts.
    due to to long title, some of the post title text are behind the latest post thumbs.
    thanks

    Well that’s going to be an issue as the boxes are a specific size. I’ll think of a solution.

    How can I set-up a drop-down menu for the main navigation?
    For example, I want to put Activity, Members, Groups, Forum under Community.

    Thank you,

    Hey, All
    Trying to add the Citizen Kane theme. I am having some difficulties. I have set it up as listed earlier in the thread and in the Read Me file. I do not have the three columns as shown at the download link (http://bit.ly/dSbwAM). Mine is all over the place and I am having a hard time finding where to fix it in the code. My sidebar column is showing up at the bottom of the page under everything else and the breaking news column appears to be under everything else. Here is my page – http://bit.ly/erVTP6 – any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You are missing some CSS. This is the theme that’s in the WP repo. http://tempsg.com I notice that a plugin is adding @jQuery more than once and this theme is using jQuery to add CSS. Try disabling plugins. Having jquery load more than once can break javascript. Might be the site wide activity widget.

    I have the same problem, my subcontent posts are too close together. I didn’t understand this response:

    div.subcontentpost h2{
    text-overflow:ellipsis;
    overflow:hidden;
    white-space:nowrap;
    }

    Should I paste that into widget home php? If so where?
