I need a tutorial of Citizen Kane Theme
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
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.
How do I change the logo and can I use custom menus?
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.
how can I add more then four thumbs of the latest posts in to the `widget home Page` template?
Go into file widget-home.php and change
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.
Well that’s going to be an issue as the boxes are a specific size. I’ll think of a solution.
Try this css
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.
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.
I have the same problem, my subcontent posts are too close together. I didn’t understand this response:
Should I paste that into widget home php? If so where?
