    Excellent work Justin. You appear to be a little like myself. You learn something new each time you seek to design and release a theme.

    With this style becoming more and more common, you can be sure that I’ve thought about releasing my own. However, I’ve a bit more to learn.

    Again, great work. (I feel your pain concerning IE6)

    Thanks guys for stopping by and giving your input.

    SP, I have a little bit of an issue with the ads also. I’m trying to figure out the best way to put them above the fold and have plenty of content up there too.

    Do you think that I should stretch the search box out to align with the sidebar? Or, maybe slide it over. Maybe even just go a whole different direction with it.

    Armen, you should definitely get into the news-theme game. The best way to learn is to try. I know I’ve made mistakes with previous themes and am sure there are a few with this one, but I’m learning as I go.

    The only thing I even like about this theme now (I’ve been looking at it for 2 weeks and am tired of it) is its video abilities and jQuery scripts. Those are the things I’ve been exploring the most — how to extend WordPress a little more.

    I think I might scale it back a little with my next theme. Maybe go with a “normal” blog template.

    Thanks Mohsin.

    Just after mentioning in my previous comment that I want to “scale it back a little with my next theme,” I came up with a new idea that I know will test my limits even more. However, it’s going to be mainly for blogs.

    Well, I’m getting a little off-topic. I just felt like writing a little, even if it was only a few sentences.

    PS. I think this is for a hardcore blogger. I am not familiar with codes, etc. I rely mostly on widgets. I noticed only 1 widget sidebars there, until I’d find ways to learn how to “tweak” codes here and there, the VISIONARY is a beautiful newspaper theme. Comment section is by far simple yet looks attractive.

    K, I like the name too. I gave it that name because it represents the path I want to go down with theme design — creating free premium designs. Of course, I still have a little more to go before I can think of calling my themes “premium.”

    This is definitely more for a “hardcore” blogger. Well, at least people that know a little more about coding than the average blogger, or feel more comfortable opening the PHP files. I actually meant to write a list of people who should/shouldn’t use this theme.

    Frank C, you should definitely use it, especially if you post videos on your blog a good bit.

    I’m not sure about the new Google video units. I didn’t realize there was more than one kind. Everything in the theme is set up so that you wouldn’t have to do a lot of work when inputting video. You just get the embed URL and plug it into a custom field. Then, you’re ready to go.

    Charles, I’m not sure what’s going on with your blog because you’re not using the theme right now. So, I’m going to need a little information from you.

    What version of WordPress are you using? (This should work with 2.1+)
    What browser are you viewing the theme with?
    Did you change any of the code? If so, tell me specifically.
    Are the tabs not working, or are the individual sections just not showing what they’re supposed to show?
    Specifically, tell me what’s happening.

    Emre, I don’t know much about the WordTube plugin. It’s something I might look into later. You might want to ask the plugin developer about how to use it. You’ll probably have to tweak the code a bit in “sidebar-video.php” also.

    I’ll look into adding support for it in the future though.

    Justin,

    I do not have the theme active currently because it was not working properly. The latest posts show, along with the tabs for popular, sections, and archives, however when clicking on those tabs nothing happens. I just upgraded to the most recent wordpress yesterday, so it may be a problem with my installation. My prior version did not have the JQuery folder, and I am not familiar with that function. Is there something I need to do after installing the newest version of wordpress (other than upgrading the database) in order to make JQuery work properly?

    Charles, you still didn’t answer my question about what browser you’re using. This might be the source of the problem itself. So, what browser are you using and what version? Also, did you change any of the code yourself? Have you tried uploading a fresh copy?

    There is also not a jQuery folder. There are files called “jquery.js” and “visionary.js.” Those are the two files that you definitely need.

    You need to make sure your “header.php” file has these lines:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo bloginfo(stylesheet_directory) .'/jquery.js'; ?>"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo bloginfo(stylesheet_directory) .'/visionary.js'; ?>"></script>

    Is your blog located in your root directory?
    Is javascript turned on in your Web browser?
    Does my theme’s live demo work correctly for you?
    Are the video links working correctly?

    Details. Details. Details. That’s the only way we’re going to get to the source of your problem because this seems to be a single case. I’m sure it’s something simple, but we’re overlooking it. That’s why I need so many details. Have you tried looking at the theme with another computer to see if it’s working there, but not with the computer you’re seeing it on.

    Did you follow all directions in the “readme.txt” file?

    Justin,

    I have IE 6.0 at my office, and Mozilla Firefox on my home computer, the tabs do not work in either. I have not made any alterations to the code, uploaded it as is. Your live demo works correctly so I am sure it is not a browser issue, is it possible it is a server issue? Do I need a certain version of PHP for this to work properly?

    My blog is located in the root directory and I followed the installation instructions in the readme.txt file.

    Charles, all I can say right now is that I’m stumped. You’re the only person to have this problem (so far), so I think that it definitely has something to do with your side of the equation.

    It shouldn’t have anything to do with your server though, but I can’t be totally sure on that. Javascript (jQuery) is client-side, so it generally messes up because of the user’s browser. That’s why I wanted to know a lot about what browser you’re using.

    Right now, without literally sitting down, logging onto your account, and looking at what’s going on, I don’t know what to do. Let’s take a look at what we do know:

    You’ve installed WordPress 2.3.
    You’re using Firefox and IE6.
    I’m assuming that Javascript is enabled in both these browsers.
    The code is exactly like it is on my theme demo page.
    You’ve uploaded the theme to your /root/wp-content/themes/ folder.

    I only know about coding, and this seems to be a bigger issue than that. Have you tried any other jQuery scripts to see if they work? The only thing I know to do at this point is to keep testing every little thing you can possibly think of. Of course, as a user, I know you just want to upload something and have it work out of the box.

    I’m sorry I haven’t been more helpful, but this is all I can think of right now. Maybe someone else that comes across these comments might be able to shed a little light on this. Or, maybe someone at the WordPress support forums knows something about why javascript isn’t working for you. You might want to look up a few javascript support forums too.

    You can always email me through my contact page also. I’m still willing to help out with this problem, but I can’t think of anything right now.

    Hi justin, thanks for offering to help. I have been looking for a theme like this for a while and hope to make it work properly. I currently have it live on my blog right now so you can see it in action. Under the videos, when I added 1 video it worked fine, when adding a second video it no longer worked properly (as you can see). If you would like I can give you the login information to my control panel so you can confirm the folder structures are accurate (I believe they are).

    Charles, here are some things I see wrong with your site:

    First of all, it is not Valid XHTML because you’ve added things that make the theme invalid. You can check your validity with the validator or you can get the Firefox plugin, which easily does it for you. If your code is invalid, things could go awry. The jQuery functions on very specific classes and IDs. If your code is messed up too much, then this could potentially mess up the entire theme.

    When looking at your page source, I noticed that you had a lot of other javascript running. I think these might be plugins. One thing I would like you to try is opening “header.php” and moving this code:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo bloginfo(stylesheet_directory) .'/jquery.js'; ?>"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo bloginfo(stylesheet_directory) .'/visionary.js'; ?>"></script>

    below this or any other javascript that you have:

    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    but above this:

    </head>

    What it looks like is happening is some other javascript or plugin is breaking the code in “visionary.js.” You might want to disable any plugins that use javascript just to see. This is also one of the reasons that I’m asking you to move the code down in the theme. Maybe if it’s called after the other stuff, it might load properly.

    here is a png of : http://www.iatitlan.com/feature.png

    I may be having a similar problem to what Charles is seeing.

    My blog Asian Motor Sports displays all the sidebar information below the main content. Old problem I know, many people have it when they include larger images that bust out of the container, but this seems to be unrelated to that.

    I have disabled all plugins except Akismet and Bad Behavior and the problem still exists.

    The blog is in a sub directory not in the root, if that makes a difference. I note there are 6 minor errors that I will attempt to track down and repair but they are only a couple of missed end tags.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Marc

    Samuel, Aaron, and Marc. From “readme.txt” included with your theme:

    *******************************
    HOME PAGE DISPLAY POSTS
    *******************************
    You need to go to your Admin Panel
    – Options
    — Reading
    — Blog Pages > Show at most: [odd number] posts
    This will ensure that your display isn’t all wacked. If it’s not an odd number, then your layout will break.

    ********************
    FEATURE ARTICLES
    ********************
    This theme has a feature article that is always listed first on the home page.
    – You need to create a category named “Features” or open home.php and change the feature category to whatever you want to name it.
    – Add posts that you want featured to the “Features” category.

    This might be your problem, at least from what I can see on Samuel and Marc’s pages. Samuel and Marc are using an odd number of posts, but haven’t created a category named “features.” If you’re not going to use the feature article you need to set your posts to display an even number.

    Hey Justin,

    I did read that, as was a bit confused, as it didnt make it clear that if a featured post was counted different, as I started with 4 fost, and 1 just happened to be a features, which left 3, but what you are saying, is a total of post = odd, so that each column is filled. (1×1)

    Thanks for the response, and opening her up now :-)

    Ah-ha!

    That solved part of the problem Justin. I think.

    Switching back to 4 posts to display allowed the sidebar to display correctly.

    However with a “Features” category and one post designated for that cat the sidebar slips to the bottom with display set at an odd number.

    In addition the jquery box that includes “latest, popular, sections and archives” does not display.

    Frankly I have not checked, and will do so now, I’m assuming that section may be commented out in the sidebar php file.

    I am also testing your theme, good job! I do not have it on my website, I am just playing around with it locally.

    However, I am also having issues (on XP, Vista and using either Firefox, IE6, IE7, Opera and Safari) with the “latest, popular, sections and archives”, javascript is in place. Still looking into that.

    I also had the “Wacky” homepage as described by Aaron (here is a PNG of : http://www.iatitlan.com/feature.png) and I have a featured article, and an odd number of posts as per the readme.txt.

    I found out that an odd number of 3 caused that, so any odd number > 3 should work.

    Hope this helps

    Marc, I’m not sure what could be going wrong for your sidebar not to be working right. It’s definitely not the theme itself. It’s not commented out either.

    With posts in the “features” category (which is what this theme was designed for), you need to display an odd number of posts. This means that 1 post will go into the feature at the top of the page. Then there are blocks below with 2 posts sitting beside each other.

    Ronald, I just checked on the odd number of 3 issue, and it works fine. As long as it’s an odd number, you won’t have any invalid code, which will break the layout.

    Also, I’m not sure why your sidebar isn’t showing up, just the same as Marc.

    These both seem to be isolated issues with the sidebar. Any number of things can break a theme. Invalid code, plugins, javascript and other types of scripts. All themes aren’t going to work out of the box for everyone because of the things they have on their site.

    I always recommend making sure you have the latest version of WordPress, Valid XHTML, your theme uploaded in the proper directory and activated, and check to see if any plugins might be causing an issue.

    Taxx, thanks. Use the theme if you like it enough. :)

    you would change it on line 8 , I added line numbers above so it would be easier for you to see.

    Samuel, the solution is to pick a number of posts that is more than 2 and odd, like 3, 5, 7, or 9. I recommend 5. I think that’s the best look. Make sure you have at least one post in the “features” category. This theme was designed to have one feature post at the top of the page and at least two secondary posts under it. That’s how you have to use it.

    If the theme is still not working right, then you’ve done something or you have something installed that is causing it not to work.

    Samuel, I don’t want to sound rude, but I can’t walk you through every step of the theme myself. I have a lot of other things I need to get done. Please read this entire post. I explicitly point out that you need to know how to use custom fields before using this theme.

    I point this out in the “readme.txt” file. I also provide you with two links on learning how to use custom fields, which are, once again, using custom fields and introduction to custom fields.

    It also looks like you’re using widgets or you’ve changed your sidebar code. There is section on widgets in the “readme.txt” file.

    I hope you don’t take this the wrong way and think that I don’t like to offer theme support, but that’s not the case. Please try to get things running smoothly by reading this blog post, readme.txt, and any links that I’ve provided for you.

    Thanks Kristian. You are right when you say there are no ads on the home page. If you open footer.php and find this line:

    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/sidebar-ads-horizontal.php'); ?>

    You can copy that and paste it in one of the three sidebar sections. I think you’ll see a clear structure to work with and will notice how everything else is done.

    From there, you can mix and match the different sidebars you want on your home page, archives/categories, and single pages.

    I’ve set it up where there’s various different sidebars that are included. This way, I can easily allow others to download extras in the future and include them.

    You can open “sidebar-ads-horizontal.php” to put what ads you want.

    I’m actually living in South Korea for the next 10 months, so cold ones come pretty cheap here. But, it would be nice if they were even cheaper…

    Justin,

    Once again thank you for this theme, it is the best I have seen by far. I have been making some minor changes to it, and was hoping to incorporate popularity contest (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/popularity-contest) on the sidebar instead of ‘popular posts’ which you have. The popularity contest is a more accurate judge of the most popular articles because it keep track of page views, comments, trackbacks etc.,

    I obviously wouldnt ask you to go through the trouble of trying to code it just for me, but take a look at the plugin, if you think it is worthwhile, it is something you can incorporate into future releases of Visionary.

    Thanks again,

    Hi Justin

    Congrats on this wonderful theme!

    As a non tech person, may I ask if I will still be able to switch between themes once I have uploaded Visionary – i.e. using the WP theme presentation tab?

    I wasn’t sure, as I assume the coding would be slightly different with a magazine theme than with regular “blog style” themes.

    Any clarification on this much appreciated.

    Many thanks for your time.

    Charles, thanks for the feedback. As a theme designer, it’s hard to know which plugins to incorporate because there are so many. I will definitely add the functionality in the next update. That’s assuming that it works well with the theme. It should though. If you have any other plugins you’d like to see incorporated, feel free to suggest them.

    Jose, you must give me more than that before I even begin to start thinking about what’s wrong. Be sure to read this entire post, the readme.txt file, and any links that I’ve pointed out.

    Kristian, I’m glad everything is working for you. Thanks for using the theme.

    I am working in South Korea. I’m teaching English at an academy here. I get paid well, and the cost of living is low. Plus, I get to spend a year in another country. It’s been fun so far. Denmark’s not on my current list of countries to visit, but you never know.

    Ket, I’m not exactly sure what you’re saying, but if it’s a compliment, thank you.

    Yvonne, you can definitely switch between themes. This doesn’t mess with your content. That’s why I tried to do so much with custom fields. That way, in the future, you might want to go a different route with your theme.

    The coding isn’t all that much different. A few tweaks here and there. It’s essentially the same. You can rest assured that this won’t affect any future themes you use.

    Aaron, that’s cool. I just tried out the German translation, since I can read a little German. I like to see the different ways people use the themes.

    Hi just noticed a small compatibility issue with jQuery and other libraries like Prototype (used in other WP-Plugins like ligthbox) i was trying to make work your theme with the lightbox plugin and found a problem: By default, jQuery uses “$” as a shortcut for “jQuery”

    You can fix this just defining a new alias:

    var $j = jQuery.noConflict();

    and replacing every $( in visionary.js to:

    $j(

    for example:

    var $j = jQuery.noConflict();
    $j(document).ready(function() {
    // setting the video hide and show, setting the current video link
    $j(‘div.video’).hide();
    $j(‘div.v1′).show();
    $j(‘div.video’).height(245);
    $j(‘div.menu ul li a’).css(‘cursor’, ‘pointer’);
    $j(‘div.menu ul li.v1 a’).addClass(‘current’);
    $j(‘ul.video li a’).css(‘cursor’, ‘pointer’);

    You got the idea :P

    Excelent theme indeed i love it, i hope to see this theme full Widget compatible, you can make the sidebar elements like jQuery Menu, Video box and flirk Flickr as Widgets elements, so we can add widgets without problem.

    Do you know of any other plugins that this might be messing up? I’d love to run them in a test environment before the next update. I’m about to test out the lightbox plugin.

    Maybe I’ll add these as widgets next time also. I hadn’t really thought about doing that before. It’ll broaden my userbase.

    Hey Justin,

    I the more I work with this theme the more I love it.

    One question, when adding the feature image and thumb I would like to be able to upload the images while writing the post using the file upload. When I do this and add the image name to the Feature Image field the image doe not show. I have to manually add the “wp-content/uploads/2007/11/” path along with the image name. Is it designed to work this way or have I missed something in the setup.

    Thanks, Steve

    Justin Published |

    Steve, you are exactly right. You must add the URL of your image for this to work.

    For example, if you upload an image with the name of “example.gif,” you can’t just use that as the Thumbnail value or Feature Image value. If you do that, you’re actually referring an image that’s in your “/root” directory, which would look like:

    sitename/example.gif

    It should be something like “/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/example.gif” to work.

    This is no different than adding an image to your post. You have to add the correct path to the image for it to show up.

    Hi Justin,

    Is the theme designed so that it shows a thumbnail of the meta field “article image” on a single page of a post?

    I prefer a thumbnail on the frontpage (under headlines), yet a full image on the post page.

    Anyway, I changed class="left thumbnail" in single.php (line 61) to class="left" so that the full size image is displayed instead of a resized 75×75.

    Or did I miss something?

    cheers,
    Ronald

    Ronald, you’re correct. I am, however, going to add some more options in the next release to let users have more control over the customization of their images.

    I wanted to keep everything perfectly strict with the initial release though. By removing that line, what you’ve done is something I don’t like to do with code. It’s not necessarily a bad thing though. It’s best to define the dimensions of an image so that the web browser will know exactly how much space to leave open. Images are loaded after the content.

    But, like I said, I will be offering more options when the next update rolls around. Subscribe to the feed to stay updated.

    Justin, I agree with specifying the dimensions, however, in the single page of a post I do not want a thumbnail, and also, images in my posts can be either landscape or portrait, so I’ld prefer the actual image and specifying width and height in the string.

    Also (and please don’t get me wrong, I am just passing on my findings while testing the theme!) the archive and category pages both only show 1 post. I again edited the php code and removed the &showposts=1 from the query_string as I prefer to see more than 1 post when digging in the archives.

    Feel free to tell me if you want me to sh*t up ;-)

    Ronald, feel free to modify the theme to fit your needs. Obviously, no single theme will fit everyone’s needs perfectly. It’s just a foundation for users to tweak to their liking. If you don’t want thumbnails, then change the code.

    Actually, the archive and category pages show more than one post. You can take a look at the demo to confirm this. The latest post’s excerpt is displayed at the top (loop 1). Then, a listing of post titles of previous posts is below that (loop 2). If you’ve only changed &showposts=1 in the theme, then you’ll end up with duplicate content on the same page. So, you’ll also need to delete the second loop at the bottom of archive.php and category.php if you want it to display correctly.

    Nice theme justin, I have decided to use the theme on my weblog and i am already working on it.

    When I tested the theme on my site, even i noticed the problem with the sidebar. Only the “Latest” tab is highlighted and all the tabs including “latest” are not clickable. (And I did have lightbox activated)

    The same theme on my local setup (xampp) had no sidebar issues (no lightbox :) )

    Also I would like to have the “related posts” as part of the sidebar. Any way of adding more tabs ? I did see kristian mentioning about creating tabs, but didn’t see details on that.

    Thanks again for creating a wonderful theme.

    Venu, thanks for you interest in the theme. Fenix offered a fix for the lightbox issue. I haven’t tested it yet, but if it works, I’ll add it to the next version of the theme. Sometimes, different scripts can conflict with each other, and this looks like a good fix from what I can tell.

    I take it that you’d like to add “related posts” on the single.php pages. You need to open “sidebar-single.php” and edit it there. I think you’ll notice a similar structure with each tab and its contents. I can’t go into specifics on how to add it at this moment because I’m just dropping by to answer comments. If you still need help, let me know, and I’ll get around to you within the next day. You can also check out this tutorial I wrote on how to create tabs using jQuery the other day. It uses the same basic structure as the Visionary theme.

    Fenix, there’s nothing I can do without details or being able to look at what’s going on myself. Have you checked my theme demo page with IE6? Is it crashing there? If so, there may be something wrong with your browser (besides being IE6, of course).

    Samuel, I hope everything turns out well. You should still think about your readers though. If you have a large IE6 user base, then you should make sure they can view your site properly. Only about 15% of my viewers use it, but I try to accomodate them also.

    TV-Stream, thanks for responding. Feel free to contact me with any problems.

    Donalyza, I simply rewrote the Custom Field GUI to make it valid code and changed a few things to make it work better. I’m not a big plugin developer though.

    Tanguillo, you have removed the Feature category, which will break the theme. As mentioned in some previous comments and the theme documentation, your post count should be set to an odd number. However, if you remove the lone feature category, this breaks the layout, which results in invalid XHTML. So, you’ll need to change the post count to an even number.

    The new version is the actual version of Visionary. The first version was the beta run, as mentioned in the post and theme documentation. The original download links are still available though.

    A quick question…most themes have the ability to flip through pages of old posts…but with this new frontpage, the whole /page/2, /page/3 doesn’t work anymore.

    Any suggestions or should people just use the archives?

  120. Justin

    Charles, I don’t know why it would be doing that. There are many different things that could cause it though. Changing something in the theme templates or stylesheet. Invalid XHTML. I did notice that you have 27 XHTML errors on your page. I would start working from there.

    Mike, I assumed not everyone would use the flickr plugin, so customize away.

    One thing you’ll probably notice with most magazine-style themes is that you can’t flip through pages of old content. This is actually one of my gripes with WordPress. Page 2, 3, and so on use the “home.php” template automatically. So, it’s not really a viable option when the home page is edited in this way. The best option would be to use an archive page.

    I’m not sure how many people use the next/previous links anyway on the home page. I never click on them because I’m not sure what content I’ll come upon. Archives are a much better way to present your content.

    Steve, you get the award for the best theme-specific question yet. This can be easily adjusted though.

    Find this line in the “latest posts” section:

    Replace it with this:

    $posts = query_posts('cat=-157&showposts=10&offset=0');

    You’ll need to change the “157” to whatever the ID is for your Video category.

    Thanks for bringing this up. I’m not sure why I used “get_posts” instead of “query_posts” before because the latter has more parameters.

    love the theme concept but am having an issue. the default post heading is in recent headline, not a problem, I even added the features area, works great. the problem is, to make use of the visionary theme to link videos, you need to create a “Video” category. When you post to the Video category, it default to Recent Headline. when there is an odd number of items in the Recent Headline, it relocates the tabbed “default” sidebar under the recent headline area. When there are even numbers of Recent Headlines, the tabbed sidebar is where it should be, to the right side.

    how do I fix this? i have been through the css and other files and have made some adjustments but nothing fixes this issue.

    This is the only problem holding me back, otherwise, it’s a fantastic theme and concept.

    Redviper, you should definitely give the “readme.txt” file a good read. It explains how to take the Video category out of the normal loop. However, even with it in the normal loop, you shouldn’t have any alignment issues. You should make sure your number of posts to be displayed is an odd number.

    And please, for the sake of me not losing my mind while reading comments, capitalize your sentences. Just because we’re on the Internet doesn’t mean we need to throw the basics of the English language out the window.

    Anand, from what I can see, you didn’t strictly follow the “readme.txt” file. I checked your site for a category named “Videos,” and nothing came up. I put a lot of focus on the Adding Videos section in the file. You could’ve easily overlooked something. I’ll pass on the “subscribe to comments” plugin. Those things are just annoying to me.

    Liezmaya, thanks. I’m still a big fan of my Newspaperize theme though because it’s even simpler.

    I have included the site I am working on in the website field. I did read through the readme, it was quite helpful. the issue is the alignment. in options under “Reading” I have the posts set to 9. I have tried several numbers and did do some research before posting and found the information about the odd number. not sure what the problem could be.

    also, please don’t be offended, I don’t mean to offend, but I consider forums, blog comments, and the like to be informal language, like carrying on a conversation, caps and punctuation are optional. when I post an article or other formal document, I do use appropriate grammar.

    Redviper, what seems to be the problem is that you don’t have 9 posts on your site. Have you tried only displaying 5 or 3 posts? You also didn’t follow the Removing Videos from the loop part of the “readme.txt” file.

    As far as language is concerned, if you want me to continue reading your comments easily, I suggest writing correctly. Whether you “consider forums, blog comments, and the like to be informal language” is irrelevant. I consider the basics to be fairly important. I’m not asking for an academic research paper, just capitalization, punctuation, and something that resembles proper grammar. Informal language isn’t about capitalization; it’s about not speaking with proper grammar, which is perfectly fine as long as I can understand you. I simply like not having to strain my eyes to figure out where a sentence ends and begins.

    If it is possible, I would love to see the past posts called by categories i.e. each individual “article spot” under the feature article showing the latest post in a specific category.

    This way readers can see the latest post from a cross section of categories at a glance, as opposed to just chronologically by the most recent posts.

    I understand you may not want to go in this direction, but I thought I’d mention it, in case it is an option.

    Thanks again – and also for your informative responses on this thread.

    Yvonne, thanks for the suggestion. I originally designed the theme with the categories under the feature article, and I still might add this feature later. I knew that users would have to manually edit the template file to put what categories they wanted, so I decided against it for the first release because there is already so much that the user has to do. I might just provide the additional code to do this in the future.

    Please suggest anything. This helps me get a feel for what users want to see and makes me a better theme developer.

    Justin: I have finally uploaded the theme to http://www.offshoreincorporation101.com but I noticed that if I place links in a post or page they stay the same color as the rest of the text in the post.

    I took a look at style.css and tried to modify it. I can get the links to underline and blue but the Post Title also changes.

    Is there a way to modify the CSS so that the post title stays black with text-decoration none and other links in the posts can be link blue underline, visted green.

    I also changed the post title to h1 tags in single.php. Is there anything else I need to change in CSS to with that change.

    Other changes: increased margin between byline and post text.

    Thanks,
    David

    David, there’s no problem with your links. They look perfectly fine.

    If you want to change the post links without changing the post title links, just use this code:

    .post .entry a { }
    .post .entry a:hover {}

    The post title’s CSS code is:

    .post h2

    awesome theme!! just one question that’s taken awhile to figure out:

    Is it possible to get THREE “recent headline” articles per row, instead of two articles per row???

    i’m thinking it has something to do with adjusting the modulus (%) snippet in home.php or this (also in home.php):


    if($i == '1' || $i == '3' || $i == '5' || $i == '7' || $i == '9') { ?>

    , where it says “<?php // for controlling the layout of the home pages bottom excerpts up to 10 posts”

    thanks for the super theme!

    Hassan, that’s one thing you’ll have to change. It’ll take some major customization of the theme templates and CSS to accomplish this though. I’ll look more into it in the next few days, but I can’t completely redo the theme. You’ll have to play around with it a lot to get it working right.

    Hi
    I’m thinking of using this theme as a more traditional CMS (eg. not for a blog or news site).

    How can I specify which posts appear on the front page. Eg. if I only want to display posts ids 1,2,3,4,5 on the front page, how would I go about that?

    Thanks

    Swollenpickles, you are free to customize the theme in any way you want, but it was created for a news-type site.

    There are probably several different methods for specifying certain posts on your front page though. If you can be more specific about what you want to put on the front page, I might be able to help.

    hi justin,

    I’m trying to display a random post in the ‘feature’ block on the homepage, and then have static pages listed underneath (so in effect the recent news sections would remain the same over time).

    I’ve got the random post thing working, using this method:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/70359?replies=8#post-444323

    but that seems to throw out the width of the feature box, and causes the sidebar to go to the bottom of the page.

    cheers

    Swollenpickles, the best method I’ve found for displaying a specific post is the get_post function from the WordPress Codex.

    I think it should be something like this, but I encourage you to read the get_post function page because it’s more informative. “351” is the ID of the post you want to display. In this example, I’m showing you how to display the post title and post content.

    <?php
    $my_id = 351;
    $post_id_351 = get_post($my_id);
    $title = $post_id_351->post_title;
    $content = $post_id_351->post_content;
    
    echo '<div class="post">';
    echo '<h2 class="post-title">';
    echo '<a href="' . get_permalink(351) . ' " title="' . $title . ' ">' . $title . '</a>';
    echo '</h2>';
    echo '<div class="entry">' . $content . '</div>';
    echo '</div>';
    ?>

    To see other things you can add, look at the function page I mentioned.

    The sidebar going to the bottom of the page has been covered in previous comments. You must have an odd number of posts on the front page for it to align correctly.

    Hi Justin,

    I fell in love with your theme the first time I saw it. I’ve one as far as installing it on the domain in the link but seem to struggle with getting my contact link to work to my contact page.

    I’m afraid I’m not a coder and only learn by changing and mistakes, but I’m lost as to what exactly to give as a command so it finds the page. (I like it to link to the “contact” link in the top nav.)

    I found the top nav.php, but the code there confuses me. I understand that I need to insert the page id which is “6” for my contact page or either the URL which is http://petbirdworld.com/contact

    but where exactly in that code to I insert this?

    Thanks for making this theme available for so many people.

    But when I navigate to either the “archives” or the “section” tab in the sidebar and then click on the one existing link of my post it returns a “fatal error” under the sidebar-tags.php file on line 6.

    I have no idea what this means? Could you please help and point me in the right direction?

    Monika, I’m glad you got the top navigation links working. I’m sorry about the “fatal error.” This is a mistake on my part. I corrected this weeks ago, but forgot to upload the new file. You can either redownload the now updated file, or you can do this:

    In, “sidebar-tags.php,” find:

    <?php if(function_exists('wp_tag_cloud')) { wp_tag_cloud(); } ?>

    And, replace it with this:

    <?php
    if(function_exists('wp_tag_cloud')) { wp_tag_cloud(); }
    ?>

    It should take away the fatal error. What version of WordPress are you using? I take it that you’re using something prior to 2.3. Another thing you can do is open “footer.php” and delete this line:

    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/sidebar-tags.php'); ?>

    Swollenpickles, I’m no PHP genious, so there’s probably a better way to do this. Nevertheless, this is my solution. You’ll have to add each post’s ID individually for each “case,” but that’s all. Basically, this code loops through seven times and displays each post.

    <?php
    $i = 1;
    while($i <= 7) {
    	switch($i) {
    	case 1:
    		$my_id = 351;
    		break;
    	case 2:
    		$my_id = 351;
    		break;
    	case 3:
    		$my_id = 351;
    		break;
    	case 4:
    		$my_id = 351;
    		break;
    	case 5:
    		$my_id = 351;
    		break;
    	case 6:
    		$my_id = 351;
    		break;
    	case 7:
    		$my_id = 351;
    		break;
    	default:
    		echo "No Posts!";
    		break;
    		}
    
    	$post_id = get_post($my_id);
    	$title = $post_id->post_title;
    	$content = $post_id->post_content;
    
    	echo '<div class="post">';
    	echo '<h2 class="post-title">';
    	echo '<a href="' . get_permalink(351) . ' " title="' . $title . ' ">' . $title . '</a>';
    	echo '</h2>';

    hello Mate, first i’de like to thank you for the amazing design of yours, it’s really great staff the Visionary theme is just great.

    However, following your instruction i could make evrything work in order and even added many plugin’s and they were all compatible 100%

    One thing I still can get it to work, is to display the video at the front page. in stead I’m getting the error message “You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video”.

    I think it shouldn’t be any reason to display the video as I have an enabled browser, I just have to click view full story and I still can see the video without any problem.

    any reason or solution.

    I’ll appreciate your help.

    FUNKist, flash isn’t really my area, but I’ll definitely try to help. If you have a URL I can go to, it would be great. It’s hard to figure out what’s going wrong without seeing it sometimes.

    What browser, and what version of that browser, are you using? I assume you followed all directions correctly and added the YouTube link to the correct custom field.

    This is the fist time anybody has had this problem, so it’s probably something wrong with your version of flash. Of course, you could’ve accidentally misread something and put it in wrong.

    I’ll need details. Tell me all the steps you’ve taken. Providing a link would make things a lot easier.

    Hi Justin,

    I’m back again. Everything looked great yesterday. Today I uploaded 3 banners which were all ok and then I posted another blog post (virtual pet bird parrot)and now the home page looks skewered with the sidebar suddenly in the bottom half of the page.

    I do have some plugins installed but disabling them didn’t help. (They are are Akismet, DD form mailer, Previos Posts, WP Stats, Visionary, WP Automatic Upgrade and WP Database Backup).

    I also moved the script files in the header.php below the code you suggested to Charles earlier on and above the tag but still not improvement.

    Any hints on how I can fix this please?
    Also, the first post is in the “Feature” category so it always stays on top.

    Funkist, by looking at your source code, I can see that you didn’t follow the directions in “readme.txt” correctly for videos. You have to add the URL (like it shows you in the file) to the correct custom field.

    If you give me more details on what you’re doing, what steps you’re taking to put videos up, I will be able to help you out more.

    Monika, please read this comment on getting your sidebar fixed. You’ll need at least three posts in total for it to work correctly.

    Read the part in “readme.txt” about “Videos” again. You don’t have a Video category, so videos aren’t going to show without that.

    I can see the videos in my browser from youtube directly, so I don’t think it is a browser issue. I t must be code related somewhere but since I’m no code geek when it comes to finding mistakes I depend on your wisdom here.

    I also set the page to 5 (odd number and now I just have to figure out how to get those thumbnails showing too on the home page and then I’m happy sailing away into the bird sunset. :-)

    Wooohooo…I managed to do my custom field images and I got the idea now of having my 5 posts displayed on the home page.

    I’m nearly home free. Just two more problems, please disregard all the other questions except the video related one, I still can’t see those videos and no matter how hard I double and tripple check your tutorial, it still doesn’t work.

    Also, the other thing is that in my “feature”post on the home page the thumbnail image won’t come up, but it is there when I click through to the full article. I did exactly the same as in the posts below and they do show the thumbnails.

    Is this happening because of either (that post is in the “feature” category) or maybe (because it is the first one)?

    I’m sorry for hogging your thread here, it’s just that I’ve been at it for the last 4 hours and slowly getting the hang of it except the last two issues. :-)

    I checked, no video displayed in from and no Video displayed even when I click on view full story.

    It’s very clear that there is something wrong with the scrip; I wonder how know one mentioned this before me.

    Monika, I think what you’re doing wrong with the video is you’re not posting the link to a custom field Key named “Video” (note the use of the capital V).

    Also, there is no thumbnail for the feature post on the home page. You can set a “Feature Image” with custom fields.

    I suggest reading the links provided in the “readme.txt” and in this post to the Using WordPress Custom Fields article. Learning how to use them is necessary to use this theme to its full potential.

    FUNKist, your site is down at the moment, so I can’t see what’s going on right now. I hope you didn’t put “VIDEO” as your custom field Key name. It’s “Video.”

    It’s also not clear that something’s wrong with the script. It’s clear that the script works because it runs fine on my demo and everyone else’s blogs that use it. That’s why no one has mentioned it before.

    I’ve tested the video link you provided locally and it’s working. From what I can tell, you must be adding the video URL to the wrong custom field. Once again, the custom field’s Key is “Video.” It’s Value is the “video URL.”

    Swollenpickles, that would really depend on what you want to do. If the code above is all you want to use, put it in between these two lines:

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    If you want to use the features of the theme (feature image, thumbnails, etc.), you’ll have to customize it a bit.

    FUNKist, I’m not sure what you want me to do. I have offered you support, and something’s obviously wrong on your end. It could be a plugin, incorrect custom field usage, or any number of things. I have nothing more to add at the moment, so I have given you no more advice. There’s no point in repeating the same things over and over.

    And, you’re right — “This theme is not for sale.” It is free. I don’t have to offer support at all. Plus, all themes need improvement, and this theme is no different. I’ve also never claimed that this was a “premium” theme. If it was premium, I would charge for it.

    You’re the only person that has had this much trouble with the theme. I’ve even mentioned in this post and “readme.txt” that this theme requires some work from the user.

    I do believe that with over 2,800 downloads at this point, this theme is a “cut above” most. I have gotten nothing but positive feedback from the WordPress community.

    Azmeer, to add more stuff to the right sidebar, you can add it in the file named “sidebar-bottom.php.” If you want split left and right columns like Mike has, then you’ll have to write new XHTML and CSS. Mike customized a lot of his layout to suit his needs.

You might want to try Fenix’s jQuery fix if the Twitter thing uses Javascript. This will also be in the next update, but I can’t say when that’ll be. So, if you don’t mind editing the files a little, then try that out.

    Hi justin awesome template.

    Got 1 quick question. How can I exclude a content from the loop like the video? I tried adding the contentID in the query_posts(“cat=-157″); but its not working.

    My idea is to have an excerpt in the right panel as a teaser.

    Thanks!

    Hi everyone. I love this theme and just implemented it on my site. Great job to the author! Is it possible to make it so that in “the latest headlines” section on the right which has a list of all the latest articles, it does not include the feature article + other articles on the left side?

    basically what i want is to have in the “latest headlines” navigation menu to the right only articles that aren’t on the left side of the main page (the feature article plus the ones below it) this way users would see 15 articles in the main page instead of only 5 since the ones on the left show up as links in the navigation menu to the right

    I think one thing you’re overlooking (as many do) is that most visitors to your site won’t come in through the front page. More than likely, they’ll come to a specific blog post. By listing the most recent articles, they can see your newest stuff instead of even older articles.

    If you still want to offset the number of articles, just change “offset=0″ to whatever number you want in your sidebar files. I only suggest doing this in “sidebar-home.php” for the reasons stated above though.

    Hi Justin! Thank you so much for an awesome theme! And the support that you’ve given is just phenomenal (especially that this theme is free!)

    The information that you’ve provided in readme.txt is very clear. At first I was very tempted to post a really stupid question (i.e. Why is the sidebar appearing below the blog posts? How come the video blog info shows up under the ‘Recent Headline?) but after I read the readme.txt, everything has been very very clear. I got the video, flickr, etc working. My message for everyone using this template – LEARN HOW TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

    BTW, I want to share something for those who would like to change the title with a logo image.

    1. From the admin panel go to PRESENTATION > THEME EDITOR > *click on ‘header’ to open header.php

    2. Look for this line: <a href=”” title=””>
    **and replace it with**

    3. Save and preview.

    Justin, just one really really stupid question… There’s only one page in the manage page section – I’m talking the “About” page but why three ‘example’ pages? I can’t seem to find a way to delete them and replace them with a different page. I even tried deleting the ‘about’ page and created a new one with different name but nothing happened.. I still have Home – About – Example – Example – Example.. I’m sure that the answer would be really really simple and I would definitely feel stupid later but thanks in advance man. More power!

    This isn’t a really stupid question, and I should probably update the “readme.txt” file with instructions on how to do this. Some of these things that seem easy to me, I’ve learned, aren’t always easy for everyone else.

    Open “main-nav.php” to edit the links manually. I think there’s a clear structure that you’ll notice immediately for each link. They are a bunch of unordered list items. There’s actually a link that shows you how to use these type of links (dynamic menu highlighting) in that file. Here’s what one of the links will look like:

    <!-- To show "current" on the ? Page -->
    <li<?php if (is_page('Example')) { echo " id=\"current\""; } ?>>
    <a href="<?php echo get_permalink(2); ?>" title="<?php _e('Example'); ?>"><span><?php _e('Example'); ?></span></a></li>

    You’ll need to change the “2” to the ID of the WordPress Page that you want to link to. You’ll also want to change the word “Example” to the name of the page. Of course, if you don’t have anything other than an About page, then you might want to just delete everything in the file other than the Home and About links. I hope this helps.

    1. I’m sure it is, but you’d have to edit your feed files.
    2. Yes.

    The reason your layout breaks is because you don’t have enough content up yet. You should set the number lower until you have enough posts to warrant that many.

    The Optimize DB plugin should not conflict with the theme at all because themes are “front end,” while that plugin deals with the “back end.”

    Marta
    Because of the nature of magazine-style themes and a few things that WordPress isn’t quite capable of yet, you can’t add page numbers. Well, you could, but it wouldn’t work correctly. Unfortunately, at the moment, this is something that you can’t do.

    First of all – I LOVE this theme. Thanks for all the hard work you must of put into making it.

    For some reason though, my ‘Recent Headlines’ won’t show anything. I’ve only added two posts and both are in the ‘Featured’ category. The most recent one is now in the ‘Featured News’ slot as it should be and I thought the last one would be shifted down automatically to the ‘Headlines’ slot but it hasn’t. What am I doing wrong? I’ve read the readme about 10 times and I can’t find anything relevant.

    As Marta mentioned, you might want to try writing a post that’s not in the “Video” category. If that doesn’t work, we’ll have to try something else.

    Marta
    As I’ve mentioned, it’s definitely possible to add page numbers, but it won’t work like you would plan. See, once you click on “Page 2,” it’ll take you to a Page 2 that looks like the home page because WordPress will automatically use the “home.php” template to show the page. It will still show the feature article and the recent articles below.

    I’ve complained plenty of times about this missing feature with WordPress, especially if we’re using it as a CMS as opposed to a blog. I’ve tried numerous solutions for it but haven’t found anything. If you do find a solution to this, please share.

    Alex-UA
    The first problem I see is that you don’t have any posts in the “Video” category. It won’t work without that.

    If you’re using the Flash Video player plugin, then you need to make sure you have the plugin activated. Put the code in the “Optional Excerpts” box by itself. You don’t use custom fields with this option.

    I actually think I’m dropping support for the Flash Video Player plugin in the next update because the author of the plugin still hasn’t attempted to provide a solution for using it outside of the normal content loop.

    I honestly suggest using YouTube, Google Video, or MetaCafe videos if possible.

    Another question though – the ‘subscribe by email’ link is the same as ‘subscribe by RSS’. What should the email link be changed to so people can subscribe that way?

    From what I can tell at this point is that you’re not using the custom fields properly because the excerpt is showing up instead of the video. If the excerpt shows up, then you haven’t used the proper custom field.

    Try this out. In your “Video” category, write a post. Give this post a custom field Key name of “Video” (note that custom fields are case-sensitive, so the “V” must be capitalized). For the Value of the custom field, input this url: http://www.youtube.com/v/2VOQgMMErxA

    Publish your post. It should work perfectly fine at this point. If not, then something’s either wrong with your theme download or your WordPress download.

    edbaker
    I want to say thanks to Martha too. I’m glad she caught that because I was a bit baffled.

    For people to subscribe by email, you probably need a feedburner account. From that account, you are provided with a email subscription link.

    Items are made popular by the number of comments received. A good plugin you might try is called “Popularity Contest.” It’s more advanced and counts page views and other things.

    lkaika
    Do you have a URL where you’re using the theme, so I can check it out? There would be no reason for them to not appear in chronological order, except to skip the feature and video posts.

    Justin, I am really enjoying this theme. Thanks for putting it together and sharing it. I’ve got a couple of questions if you don’t mind…
    1) On my site, on the front page, the ‘recent headlines’ are displayed in reverse chronological order (eg the oldest articles show up first). Is there a setting I can tweak to reverse that?

    2) The same problem appears in the javascript in the sidebar also but only if you click through to read the whole text of an article. On the front page, it behaves correctly. On the article page, the oldest articles are listed at the top of the ‘latest’ tab.

    Any ideas would be appreciated. And thanks again for the clean and super functional theme!

    I am using the version of this theme that features the ad block on the full post pages, not the one with the ads on the home page. That being said, I love it. I tried structure but got carried away with all of the widgets and it looked clutered so I went to visionary, it has a very unclutered look and the emphasis is on the blog (which is the main thing I want visitors to see. I did some tweaking on the CSS file and added a masthead at the top. I looks exactly the way I wanted in both Firefox and IE7. Great! Keep up the good work.
    Okay I just yesterday updated my FireFox and it mussed up my flickr, I assume there might be a prob with the flickr plugin and not the theme. If you know the maker rag on him. LOL.
    To make sure it was not me causing the prob I came here in the latest version of Firefox ver: 2.0.0.11 and tried both demos of Visionary with it and the same thing happened here with both versions, no graphics showing in flickr just jumbled text.Finally keep up the good work Justin. Visionary Rocks.

    Hi Justin,

    I’m absolutely loving this theme now. It was a bit confusing at first but once you get up to speed it’s awesome.

    You mentioned to me before about the ‘popularity contest’ plugin. I’ve installed it and I like the stats it gives you – but can you tell me how to amend your theme so that the popularity tab on the sidebar shows posts according to the ‘popularity-contest’ plugin?

    I assume I need to change something in the sidebar-archive.php file…

    get_results(“SELECT comment_count,ID,post_title FROM $wpdb->posts ORDER BY comment_count DESC LIMIT 0 , 10″);
    foreach ($result as $topten) {
    $postid = $topten->ID;
    $title = $topten->post_title;
    $commentcount = $topten->comment_count;
    if ($commentcount != 0) { ?>
    <a href=”” title=””>

    But I don’t have a clue how to do it. Could you help please or anyone else out there? I’d really appreciate it.

    Don’t know if I’m explaining myself properly but I hope you understand what I’m asking.

    Apologies for being such a pest and keep up the excellent work!

    I see no reason this should happen unless you’ve changed some code somewhere, something else you’ve added to the theme, or your WordPress or theme install is messed up.

    I suggest just working through each of those problems until you can figure out what’s causing things to mess up.

    Thanks for using the theme. Just a note about Structure: the theme comes with a blog-styled layout option, so it doesn’t have to be as cluttered. I think Flickr was partially down or something the other day because I was noticing the same things on several blogs.

    edbaker
    You just need to delete everything between this:

    <ul class="popular">
    </ul>

    Place your Popularity Contest code in between that code.

    First, thanks for the theme, it’s great.
    I’m just getting used to Wordpress, so my questions may be pretty basic.
    I want to use this as a CMS, not a blog, so I want to eliminate comments and the post date. How can I accomplish that?
    I’m confused about categories, is there a category list in this theme?

    Thanks for the look-see Justin. I just uploaded a fresh copy of the theme from here and it’s still behaving funny. I’m going to check and see if perhaps I changed something in wordpress’s behavior directly that might have this affect…but it’s a fresh upgraded copy too so….. who knows. If I figure it out, I’ll let you know just incase other users run into this.
    Thanks again for the theme!

    Justin,

    I really like this theme. I’ve been using it for a while now and it works great. BUT, today I ran into a snag.

    I posted a new feature article and suddenly the sidebar started appearing at the bottom, below the posts. There was no problem with the previous feature. At first I thought it might be because this feature had a photo but after removing the photo, the problem was still there. If I remove it from the feature category, everything works fine. It’s only when I make it a feature.

    I also tried deleting it and reposting but have the same thing happening. If it’s a feature, the sidebar is gone. If not a feature, everything is ok. Any ideas?

    By the way, this happens with both IE or Firefox.

    Thanks

    John – check out this chunk from the readme.txt file that came with the theme:

    *******************************
    HOME PAGE DISPLAY POSTS
    *******************************
    You need to go to your Admin Panel
    – Options
    — Reading
    — Blog Pages > Show at most: [odd number] posts
    This will ensure that your display isn’t all wacked. If it’s not an odd number, then your layout will break.

    This fixed it for me

    @ edbaker – I’m glad I could be any of help.

    Justin – I’ve just found a magazine-style theme with built-in pagination. I haven’t downloaded it so I don’t now how the issue was solved (probably I wouldn’t understand because I don’t know PHP):
    introducing-the-massive-news-wordpress-theme

    Back to Visionary – I wonder if it is possible to simplify Visionary in order to have pagination working. What functionality would be lost? (But this is rather a kind of comment to “Project Community Theme”.)

    You can set no comments from your WordPress dashboard on every post. If you don’t want to show the dates on posts, then you’ll have to edit most of the files. You’ll need to delete all the lines that look something like this:

    <?php the_time() ?>

    There’s a category list in the tabbed sidebar section.

    AlexT
    This just seems like an odd thing to be happening. It shouldn’t be anything theme-related because there’s no code that displays the posts in reverse-chronological order, but I’m interested in seeing why it’s happening.

    John
    I’ll look more into it, but I’ll have to stand by AlexT’s advice for now.

    Marta
    I’ve actually come across something that I can’t believe I missed before. It’s the conditional tag for a paged page:

    is_paged()

    It would probably take some stylistic changes and definitely some XHTML and PHP changes to implement correctly, but I’ll consider adding it in the next update.

    I’m slightly stumped at what is likely has an easy solution. Is there a way to change the loop that controls the “Recent Headlines” section of the homepage so that it sorts the posts by date rather than post ID?

    OK, I thought my modifications to the theme were just superficial in appearance, but now in IE, it’s FUBAR :(
    I’m frustrated, & no doubt, it’s all my fault. The header is centered but the rest of the page is off to the left.

    Justin, thanks again for the great theme. Strange thing though, and the solution to my problem, when I added the new feature story, it changed my post number from 7 to 8. Not sure how or why, but obviously, once I switched it back to an even number it worked like a charm.

    Sorry for bothering you.

    I really do like this theme.

    Justin, another question, this time on videos. I notice that when you read a post with a video, specifically a YouTube video, it shows the video, on the right is the YouTube “download video” and then the post wording. You can see what I mean at http://CoastGuardNews.com.

    Is this inherent or am I doing something wrong?

    I don’t usually answer questions like this because they’re not really theme-support, but you have a nice way of complimenting folks. :)

    In “style.css,” there’s a line you’ll have to change. You should notice it because I’ve labeled it pretty clearly. You’ll need to edit the CSS for this line:

    h2.section-header

    (‘category_name=features,news,world,themes,etc,&showposts=1′);

    2: I want to be able to show my images in the post as they are bigger or small in featured post or below. Right now nor,al aded image will not show in post if was not added specially.

    We have the SOS, which can be signaled by lights, radio, flares… Etc., but if persons in the water want to alert a passing boat or ship that they need help…we could implement a hand-signal that is equivlent to the seriousness of dialing 911.

    Please let me know so I can submit a suggestion to the proper department.
