NEW Avenue K9 BP 1.1 Theme Released
“if any of you want to have an image logo rather than the h1 text, go ahead and change “display: block;” to “display: none;” in the “#header h1#logo a” element. then, drop in your image tag and play around with “padding-top:” values for “#header” “
This certainly works. However, the image is not linkable (I put the image in the #header section section). I can’t seem to put the image in the #header h2@logo a section and also get rid of the text that appeared on top of the image.
Any way I can make the image linkable without going in and modifying the underlying header.php? I’m assuming that I would be creating a whole new parent theme if I need to modify header.php.
yep, there is. you can set your logo as a background image by adding the following to your #header h1#logo a element…
text-indent: -9999px;<br />
background-image: url(http://blogs.nyu.edu/blogs/jr197/japan/Newsweek_logo.gif);<br />
width: 335px;<br />
height: 78px;<br />
in this case, the text-indent will move your h1 title link -9999px out of view. the second line calls your image logo as a background property; in this case, i just used a newsweek logo. the last two lines define the dimensions of your logo. hope this helps
I have spent more than 24-hours non-stop (literally!) to put back my site online after upgrading to Buddypress 1.1.1. I knew it would be painful but the new features and integration are something hard to pass. I have used this theme, and tweaked it a bit (btw, I don’t know anything about PHP) and combined it with my previous facebuddy theme. The site still looks awful (http://bloggista.net) like those sore at the Header Nav. Also the recently active avatars are lining up in one single line down to the bottom.
PHP Gurus, do you have some tips to a newbie like me how to fix it? It used to work nice before the upgrade, but somehow it looks bad now.
And also, I want to use the ‘admin-bar-logo’ rather than the text in adminbar. Is there an easier way to do this? aside from deleting adminbar.css?
i have installed Buddypress and WMu everything is working okay but i login as users all other link except home not working at all its shows page not found
please help with this
thanks in advance
I know this is a bit late to reply to your comment from two weeks ago, but I just only read it now.
You shouldn’t copy functions.php from the parent theme to the child theme. It’ll throw errors. There’s another way to get rid of that third sidebar. Create an empty functions.php file in your child theme folder (all the functions from the parents functions.php will still work). In it you put this piece of code:
unregister_sidebar( 'sidebar-4' );
add_action( 'admin_init', 'sv_remove_sidebar' );
In the above example 4 is the ID of the sidebar. If a sidebar doesn’t have a specific name to identify it with WP will give it automatically a name like sidebar-ID, which is the case with the default parent theme. Then you set the sidebar you just unregistered to display:none in your CSS file and you should be all set, plus you didn’t touch any parent theme files.
@buddyin – try your bp installation with just one instance of BP. my best guess is that your http://blogin.in/ and http://blogin.in/meme/ BP installations could be conflicting with each other — i’d just take out the meme one and stick with your root version.
@travel-junkie – thank you for the great advice! so glad to know that there is a better way around that issue
updated AvenueK9 BP 1.1.1 theme with edits from Travel-Junkie
*btw, if anyone else has any edits, feel free to throw them my way
Sorry for this: But how do i display 2 columns on the homepage instead of 3, like on your site
Hope you can help me…
i’ve gone ahead and uploaded the files here… (it’s the 2-column theme patch)
after installing the patch, it doesn’t work. on the left side there is always 33% free space. maybe wrong files in the patch ?
you’ve actually got the same files on your server as i do, so i’d have to take a look at your site first to see what’s up. can you post or pm me your web addy pls?
Now, when i put widgets for the first section – but they are not displayed
tried sending you a message but it failed every time, so i posted on your wire instead.
for those of you running the Avenue K9 BP 1.1.2 theme, i uploaded several files that might help you in case you have issues with your homepage widgets or the 2-column layout..
