    This is so much better than the last theme. Visionary was a good starting spot, and I liked the theme, but something about it wasn’t cohesive to me. I played around with it, but in the end I gave up on it. This one just feels so much more complete and more professional. There’s speration and division where the other theme felt like everything was running together. It’s an amazing piece of work, and before long I fear that we will be paying for your work instead of having it given to us. Thank you for this.

    You have taken WordPress theme design to a new level of design, layout, function and excellence.

    @Nick – I wouldn’t say it’s so much better than the other, they both are fantastic and easy to use.

    This one actually doesn’t look right to me with Firefox, some of the tabs aren’t all on one line.

    Thanks guys. Nick, I’m with you on this versus Visionary. I think this one feels more “cohesive.” I hope to keep free themes running on here for as long as WordPress is around. Of course, I might do a little freelance work here and there.

    Skarld, I hope you voted for me. :)

    Mike, I was afraid of that with the tabs. I assume it was the top right sidebar tabs that were messing up. I have no way of testing in other screen resolutions either. Can you tell me what screen resolution you have? Also, do you have your text resized? I’ve commented out the fourth tab in the top right sidebar in the demo just in case.

    Justin,
    I never noticed before that the visionary used a grey background in the domtabs and around the Flickr area as background. I have two monitors running on my computer. One of them is actually a 22inch HDTV and the other is just your standard monitor. The HD is a lot brighter and the light shade of grey shows up white so there is no division, when I dragged it over to the monitor I saw that it is grey. A lot of people are probably using brighter screens, and it may not show up everywhere. In the Structure theme the colors show up on both. I used to think everything just ran togheter without dividers in the Visionary theme.

    Still, the division that is set up in the new theme is so much better and it makes it more appealing. When it isn’t present, something about a theme feels incomplete to me. If that makes sense. I used to run Adii’s premium news theme, and it drove me nuts that everything just kind of ran toghet without it being broken up. I loved the theme, it was flexible, packed with features, but it drove me because there were no breaks. I don’t know if this makes any sense, but I thought you should be aware of the way the colors appear. This is probably one of the best theme’s I’ve seen come out this year.

    Incredible. You have really outdone yourself this time. You are really up there with the top WP designers and without the cockey attitude and high prices.

    You could probably even throw a $20 price tag on this and make a killing, although it is worth MUCH more.

    Thanks.

    @Justin – I’m running Firefox on Ubuntu, but I don’t think that matters. My resolution is 1280×800…the page fits nicely inside my browser, so it’s not the width that I can see.

    The tabs on the upper right look fine now that you commented one out, I just see three. But the second area of tabs below the main story go to a second line now. The World tab is the one on the second line now.

    continuing with the the crazy series of comments urging you to charge for this theme, is there at least a paypal account in your name that I can donate to? Or maybe a charity you’d like donated to in the spirit of the season? Seriously, I already download too many things for free in an ethically questionable manner, I’d rather not feel like I’m ripping off a hard working teacher/wordpress rockstar too. Anyway, Thanks for the great theme. I was already excited about using visionary, Structure is just ridiculously good for being free.

    Wow Justin this theme is excellent! As much as I love your Visionary theme, I may just have to switch over to this new one…

    You really have taken themes to a new level with your latest themes. I’ve seen many premium themes which don’t look nearly so good, and yet you give these away for free! You’re truly a credit to the blogging community. Thank you and bravo!

    Nick, I totally understand what you’re saying. I think I either used the color #f7f7f7 or #eee. Both of these are pretty light, so different monitors show different shades.

    That’s one thing I don’t like about being here in Korea — I don’t have the testing environment that I’m used to. I just have my one little laptop. Thanks for pointing this out though. I might just change those background colors for Visionary in the next update. Thanks for your comments. I’m not sure that I’ll sell it though. I’d rather do freelance custom designs.

    Armen, thanks. I think getting away from the red colors of Visionary and my last theme for this site really changed a lot for me, not only in terms of style, but in overall layout too.

    Mark, thanks for Digging it. You can always vote for it at WP Themez too. It’s a Digg-like site for WordPress themes.

    As I told Nick, I’m not sure about putting price tags on anything yet. Maybe some future “premium” themes because I’m not labeling this as premium just yet.

    Mike, that seems so weird. I thought for sure that it’d only be the top right sidebar tabs. On my screen and in every browser, I have room for an extra tab in the category spot. I’m also running a 1280×800 screen resolution.

    The Internet was out at work today too, so I couldn’t see what it looked like on those computers. Maybe it’ll be back up tomorrow.

    Josh, you can definitely make a donation. Maybe I should put a button up. Thanks for your comments.

    Amanda, you should take a look at my old themes. They’re not so good. I don’t think I’m at the level I should be at yet, but I’m working to get there. There are some really good premium themes out there though. To me, part of providing a premium theme means giving a lot more user support than usual. Right now, I’m only willing to do so much support because I have a lot of other things to get done. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    I don’t actually want you to switch over. I love what you’ve done with Visionary, and you must’ve put a lot of work into it. Of course, you may do what you like.

    Looks like another great theme Justin.

    The blue is a nice touch. I’ve got a modified version of Visionary that uses blue on my test server. I haven’t decided if I’m going to deploy it or not.

    The dividing lines in Structure help it somewhat. That’s one of the feedback things I’ve gotten on Visionary and another thing I’ve played around with on my test box.

    I did discover what was causing the tab pop thing and that was the MyBlogLog widget holding up things during the page load. It’s an important social widget but I’m considering getting rid of it due to page load issues.

    Absolutely stunning!

    I can’t wait to get into the code and swim around a bit.

    I am having a problem with the video, though. I took out the \\ in the sidebar file, but for some reason the video is “trying” to show in two places on the homepage. And when it tries to show, it shows in the wrong places and is just a green box.

    Any ideas on that?

    Thanks for the theme! I’ll be sure to donate when I get a little extra cash this Friday.

    Frank, thanks. I’ll have to run some tests before the next update with the MyBlogLog widget. It’s so hard to test for everything, so thanks for the feedback on that. Theme authors really do depend on their users to help build better themes.

    Len, I don’t know if we need to go saying I’m as good as Brian. :) Honestly though, he’s a great designer, and even being compared to him is an honor.

    Eric, it seems that you’ve put the wrong URL as the Video custom field. This is an easy mistake to make though. You put:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cT-ur8sDlA

    It should be:

    http://www.youtube.com/v/2cT-ur8sDlA

    I can’t stress enough how strictly you need to follow the video section in the “readme.txt” file. Take note of the embed code on the YouTube video’s page. Don’t grab the URL in your address bar.

    Also, you’ll have to comment out the video part in “home.php” if you want to use it in your sidebar. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

    In other news: I’m actually sitting down working on a theme options page for the WordPress Dashboard right now. I hope to have it released in an update sometime this week.

    One more question and I’m good to go.

    On the custom boxes, what would be the best way to get the content two split in to two smaller columns.

    Example:
    I might want a box that has a blogroll on the right half and a list of archives on the left. I know the php needed to call those two lists, but how would I get them to split in the box?

    And thanks for helping on the YouTube issue. oddly enough, I DID post the URL that was supplied in the “share this” part of the page, not the browser. But it still needed to be edited down, obviously.

    Anyway… I got it working.

    Thanks again!

    Are you using Widgets? You can’t use widgets and use the custom sidebar things at the same time. Remove any widgets you might be using and see how that works.

    I’m trying to make the custom sidebar blocks widgetized, but am having some problems with the video and tabs. Look for updates on this within a week.

    Eric
    That’s a really good question. I need to hash out that part in the “readme.txt” file for future updates. Open “home.php” and find these lines:

    // BLOCK LEFT
    // BLOCK RIGHT

    You can add new things within the blocks by putting them in between the divs. Example

    // BLOCK LEFT (everything in the left column goes here) ***
    	echo '<div class="block-left">';
    		// Add things in here
    	echo '</div>';
    
    // BLOCK RIGHT (everything in the right column goes here) ***
    	echo '<div class="block-right">';
    		// Add things in here
    	echo '</div>';

    I hope this helps, and thanks for pointing it out. I’ll definitely update the documentation in the future. Also, I’m trying to make each block widget-ready too, and am hard at work trying to figure out a few bugs with that. You might want to look out for updates.

    I wish I would’ve saw your second comment before I was halfway through writing a mini-tutorial on that. I’m glad you figured it out. This is something that needs to be better documented too. Sometimes, what seems like simple things to theme developers, can actually be confusing to others. It’s easy to forget that.

    This theme can be hard to customize too. I am hard at work on creating theme options at the moment though. I actually designed this theme around the idea of easy customization, but I still have a few bugs to tweak with it. Be on the lookout for updates soon.

    A long time ago (shortly after the earth’s crust had cooled) TimBL and I exchanged a few email. One thing we talked about was how so many early web pages were hugely long. We agreed that, ideally, pages would be 1 screen high … or maybe 2. (Neither of us anticipated AJAX, of course.) It looks to me that you’ve done something like that, and with real style. Congrats!

    Hey, nice upgrade, now I can rip out a bunch of my custom code :wink:

    you have me confused though with one modification, in particular to recent.php

    you changed the function calls for getting the post custom data, thats fine… however, when you compare later on for empty string, you are still using the not identical comparison operator which will fail the comparison for diff types… doesnt that happen all the time now? shouldnt you just be doing a != comparison now? I dont see how to get to the_excerpt() call…

    Hello Justin,

    Apologies for the double comment! After having some troubles showing excerpts for “recent.php” on the front page, I thought it best to let others know that you may need to create a custom field with the key of “excerpt” containing the excerpt you would like displayed in each post.

    I know you have written this in the readme file, though after working with your Visionary theme I had expected the excerpts to show on their own, and had to re-read the readme a couple of times before I finally figured it out! :oops!

    Aside from this, everything is wonderful. Thank you!!

    Amanda/Justin, the excerpt problem is cleared up by correcting the check to see if their is a custom excerpt in recent.php. Change the !== to != and if you dont have a custom excerpt, it will use the standard wp excerpt. You do not have to have a custom excerpt.

    Sorry I didn’t reply to your comment earlier today. I was in a hurry and only had a few minutes before work. I have changed a few things though, like with recent.php and video.php to make them work with widgets.

    That’s a good call though. I forgot to test for that. You can change this line in “recent.php:”

    if($excerpt != '') echo $excerpt[0];

    To this:

    if(isset($excerpt[0]) && strcmp($excerpt[0],'')!= 0) echo $excerpt[0];

    I’ve updated the theme now. You can download it again and just replace the “recent.php” file or use the code above. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Thanks for the comments. Making a double sidebar will take a lot more work than what I can explain here in the comments section. It will take theme template XHTML editing and CSS editing. It’s not one of those things that can be easily done.

    I regretfully say that I can’t help you completely rebuild the theme. I can, however, answer specific questions you have if you come across any. Building the two sidebars with this theme would take a lot of work. It would be like making an entirely new theme. Of course, you can always hire me for fairly cheap to do custom work through the contact page. :)

    Thank you for using the theme. You current feature image almost seems to jump off the page a little. Everything’s looking good.

    I’ve fixed the “recent.php” file. Mr. Papa pointed this out earlier. I had changed a bit of code in the update, but didn’t change one line that I should have. I explained the code to Mr. Papa earlier in this comment. It now shows “the_excerpt()” or your custom “Excerpt.”

    You can customize any way you like, of course. I like to think of my themes as a foundation for designers. What’s the point in using a free theme if you’re not going to make it your own in some way?

    I am working on a business model for custom designs in the near future. I’m just working on a lot of different projects at the moment, so things are moving kind of slow. I am working on some paid jobs, but I’m not really advertising it yet. I don’t want to “bite off more than I can chew,” you know? I’m taking it one day at a time.

    Right now, I’m troubled because, two important plugins which I definitely need don’t work. Please reply soon if you have a solution for it. While I’ll break my head a bit too.

    The plugins are:
    Advanced Admin Menus (http://www.stuff.yellowswordfish.com/admin-drop-down-menus/)
    WP-Ratings (http://lesterchan.net/portfolio/programming.php)

    Justin,

    Another comment or issue perhaps… With the way you have changed recent.php, won’t it always duplicate the feature post in the left home (despite the comments in the code)?

    I got around this by simply changing the new query instantiation to be:

    $r_query = new WP_Query(‘showposts=3&offset=1′);

    Was that a desired change in operation, or have I missed something?

    Hi justin,

    I’m probably just being user stupid. Still working on modifying appliance.net to use the structure template. updated to 2.3 the tabs all work great in firefox but not msie. You are right that its not the theme itself, cause i the tabs work on your demo site, just not on my site. any hints on what i’m missing? it seems shows the floating alt text on the tabs when you hover over them, it just doesn’t execute a link on click. all works fine on firefox.

    I’m not sure what’s going on at the moment. I tested both of these plugins (already had the Post Ratings plugin activated), and both of them seem to work fine. This theme has “jQuery.noConflict();” in “tabs.php,” so that it won’t conflict with other Javascript.

    One thing you might try is moving the two calls to the jQuery files below:

    wp_head();

    I can see how there might be some conflict with the Post Ratings plugin, but I don’t see any reason the theme itself would mess up Advanced Admin Menus.

    Mr Papa
    I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to do this. I’ve used this code before. Under:

    while ($r_query->have_posts()) : $r_query->the_post(); 

    Add this:

    if( $post->ID == $do_not_duplicate ) continue; update_post_caches($posts);

    This will make the number of posts displayed in “recent.php” drop down one if your feature posts has been in the last few posts. If you use “offeset=1,” then you will always offset your first post, whether it’s a feature post or not. Honestly, this is one of the gripes I’ve had with WordPress. I haven’t found a better way to skip over a post.

    This is one of those things I changed, but forgot to update the comments.

    Steve
    Definitely. It’s just an easy way to add custom fields. I do believe I used all the same custom field names, so there shouldn’t be any problems.

    David
    I don’t see that as a viable option with this theme because of the way the “content blocks” are set up. A fluid-width column would really throw things off.

    Howard
    I’m viewing your site in IE6, IE7, and Firefox right now. It’s working perfectly fine. Usually, I would say it’s a browser problem, but you said that my demo site works fine. I’m at a loss as to why you can’t click your own site’s tabs.

    Does anyone else around here want to give it a try in IE6?

    Actually, Mr Papa, I think I may have come up with an idea. It’ll be a day or so before I can implement it though. If you know your way around PHP well enough you can try fiddling with it a little.

    I’m thinking that we should check to see if the post is duplicated, then decide how to run the query:

    if( $post->ID == $do_not_duplicate ) {
    	// If it is duplicated, run query with 'showposts=4'
    	}
    
    else {
    	// If not duplicated, run query with 'showposts=3'
    	}
    
    // After while()
    if( $post->ID == $do_not_duplicate ) continue; update_post_caches($posts);

    This would take a little more code than I’d like, but it should do the trick.

    Well, what I was thinking was that the first column could be fluid, at least when viewing a single article or a page. I’ll play around with it as it is to see how it might work for me. I want to use it for my technical blog (the one I linked to with this comment) so allowing the user to change the width to their liking would be, I think, a nicer experience. I’ll have to see, though.

    That would take a bit of work. You can take a look at what I’ve done to Books in Bed (a failed Web project that I need to work on sometime in the future).

    You really have to gut out the bbPress theme templates to get it working right. Of course, it’s been a while since I’ve looked at the code, so I’m not even sure where to start.

    It sounds like a cool project I might be willing to help out on if I can find the time. It’d take me a while to get back into the groove of working with bbPress though. I don’t even have a copy running locally right now.

    Mr Papa
    I’ll see what I can throw together when I get home from work tomorrow, or I should say later today. :)

    David
    The first column could definitely be fluid, but it doesn’t seem like a good idea for me to release it as part of the theme because of the grid structure of the layout.

    You could edit the CSS to make it work. I’m not sure how advanced you are with CSS, but I could definitely help out if you needed me to.

    I’ll give that plugin a go sometime in the near future. From what I can see, it looks like a great alternative. I’d like to see what that skin looks like.

    I’m also about to play around with our “recent.php” file. By the time we get through with it, it will be the best recent posts section ever. :)

    I also want to say thanks for everything you’ve pointed out so far. You’ve been a big help. This kind of feedback really helps us theme designers become better at our trade.

    Safely remove what line? From what file? If you’re trying to display code, wrap it in these tags:

    <pre><code>
    </code></pre>

    And, use XHTML character entities for any “less than” or “greater than” signs.

    I take it that you mean to display two videos in “single.php.” This is feasible. It’s a bit too much code to show here in the comments section, but the best way to do it would be to delete all the video code in “single.php.” Then, just code the videos in your “Write Post” page. There’s a way to do this with custom fields too, but it wouldn’t be ideal — too much extra code and too little to show for it.

    Bryan
    If you follow the directions correctly in the “readme.txt” file, then it will show in all browsers that have the Adobe flash plugin. I can’t really help you with errors of this kind without actually looking at the page and its source code. Do you have a link?

This doesn’t mean that I don’t try to offer full support though. :)

    Mr Papa
    I think I’ve found a solution that works. Disregard the comment I left yesterday because you can’t check “$do_not_duplicate;” before running the query. I’ve replaced the top of the “recent.php” file with the code below. Everything goes above the check for the thumbnail custom fields.

    // The second loop showing articles after the feature
    
    rewind_posts();
    
    // Query posts by newest first
    	$i = 1;
    	query_posts('orderby=date&order=DESC');
    
    // Change "$i <= 3" to how many posts you want
    	while(have_posts() && $i < 4) : the_post();
    
    // If the feature is found in the query, skip over it
    // Subtract "1" from $i to compensate for the lost post
    	if( $post->ID == $do_not_duplicate ) { continue; $i--; }
    	update_post_caches($posts);

    You’ll also need to add $i++; just before the endwhile; at the bottom of the file. Test this out and see if it works for you.

    Keep the ideas coming. I’d like to give a final update at the end of the week with all these extra things fixed.

    I had a couple of problems with your suggested fix… mainly global issues… anyways, here is one that appear to work…

    	global $do_not_duplicate, $post;
    	rewind_posts();
    
    // Query posts by newest first
    	$i = 1;
    	$posts_wanted = 4;
    	$posts = query_posts('orderby=date&order=DESC&showposts='.$posts_wanted+1);
    
    	while(have_posts() && $i ID == $do_not_duplicate) continue;
    	update_post_caches($posts);
    	$i++;
    

    A couple of notes… the $i++ is not required before the endw and I didnt decrement when found one to skip… fyi, you had the decrement after the continue anyways, so it wouldnt have run…

    There are no plans to release this as a Blogger port. The port of Visionary was done without my permission at first, but I talked with the site owner and thought it was a worthwhile idea. I also cannot give you suggestions on how to port it. I suggest moving to WordPress because, honestly, Blogger is about the worst blogging platform you can use (I don’t mean this in a mean way, but brutally honest). :) Be sure to read the license included with the theme before you start modifying it though.

    I also don’t offer support on Blogger templates. The code has changed from the original version. You can follow my tutorial on creating tabs with jQuery though.

    Bryan
    I see the problem. It’s not the video that’s not showing; it’s the entire <div> that’s not showing. I’ve uploaded a fresh copy if you want to download it again. Or, you can open “style.css” and replace the existing two blocks of code with this:

    .video {
    	display: block;
    	float: left;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	width: 288px;
    	margin: 0 0 10px 0;
    	padding: 2px 5px 10px 5px;
    	background: #fff;
    	border: 1px solid #ccc;
    	text-align: center;
    	}
    .video div {
    	overflow: hidden;
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	padding: 0;
    	background: transparent;
    	text-align: center;
    	display: block;
    	border: none;
    	}

    That’s a good find. I must’ve changed something right before I released it because it worked fine when I was testing it in the sidebar.

    Thanks for the reply Justin. Yes, I realize Blogger is in many ways inferior to Wordpress (just as Wordpress is in many ways inferior to Serendipity :). But, I’m forced to admit that’s really the reason I use Blogger. I have big issues with staying in focus – I’ve spent way too much time chasing down the latest “really cool” plug-in or template to get what I should have been doing done.

    I also like Blogger’s dashboard with regards to organizing multiple blogs. (Yes, I know Wordpress.com does much the same thing, but they are too restrictive. And, last summer I tried to create “my own Blogger” using MU, but that turned out to be an abysmal failure :(

    However, he bigger picture is really my ADD and inability to stay on task. Since Blogger is pretty restrictive, it ends up working out better for me.

    You should check out a few of the new options in Version 1.1.2. It makes it even easier to modify. That was one of my main goals after the initial release — make things easier for the user to have a “structure” that suits them.

    I’m not exactly sure what you’re asking with images associated with categories. Is this something you’ve created yourself? I’ll need more details on how this works.

    That’s cool. I just wanted to point it out in case you wanted to learn more about it.

    Troy
    Thanks for pointing it out. I’ve updated the theme to version 1.1.2, so you should be able to see your “Structure Recent” posts correctly.

    I believe you only have to update your “recent.php” and “style.css” files. I’ve updated the “readme.txt” on this, and also see “new-style-rules.css” to make sure nothing goes “bjork” (there was a left column style bug).

    Once again, thanks for the feedback. I hope all the bugs are now squashed.

    Dzaia-bs
    Thanks. I suggest using the “Excerpts” theme style for this. After making this your theme style in “Structure Options,” you need to open “excerpts.php.” Change this line:

    the_excerpt();

    To this:

    the_content();

    Also, do the same for “features.php” if you want your feature article to be full length. If you want to just use the “Default” theme style, only change “features.php.”

    You can add a background image for the header by using this tutorial on valid XHTML clickable header images.

    Everyone
    Version 1.1.2 is now out! There are a few new features that make customization even easier. Try it out and let me know if you find any other bugs. The feedback has been great thus far, which allows me to continuously improve the theme.

    Hey Justin -

    One suggestion -

    You might want to wrap each 125px ad in an ad “div” of its own. Right now you are relying on the image tag to define the size of the ad If someone (like me) wants to use a google 125 ad, or other 3rd party serving, it will break the layout.

    I added the following:


    .my_ads {
    width: 125px;
    float: left;
    margin: 0px 10px 0px 10px;

    to styles.php

    and then edited the ads.php and ads2.php to surround the individual ads already setup in the my_ads class.

    Seems to work for me. Just a suggestion. You are the expert!

    Thanks. I’m sure Brian’s theme isn’t too hard to use. He’s in the process of learning new things every day with his development skills. His “Revolution” series will only continue to get better. I’m flattered that you would compare my work to his though. :)

    If you don’t want the feature skipped, then you can just delete the part that checks if the feature’s been displayed (look for $do_not_duplicate).

    This theme was designed for 125×125 px image ads, so I coded for that specifically. There’s no plans to change this because there’s no way to know exactly what everybody will use.

    Neither of these are theme-specific questions, and I don’t have the time at the moment to walk you through any of this. The best place to find support for questions like these are the WordPress support forums. There are a lot of great people there that are willing to help. If you can’t get help after a few days, send me an email through my contact page, and I’ll see what I can do for you.

    Hi, some assistance please. If I navigate away from my site and then return I find that the tabs in the sidebar no longer function in that you cannot select any of the tabs. When I refresh the page the problem is gone. The problem only occurs in IE7, in Firefox there is no problem. Thanks.

    Your tab issue is likely caused by one of a few different things: invalid XHTML, the modifications you’ve made, other Javascript, or plugins running on your blog. Since it’s not the original theme, there’s no way for me to test what’s going on. I would suggest going through that list of things, and see if any of those are causing the problem.

    I’m sorry for unspecific question. I’ll try it again. So I use Structure theme. In Visionary theme I notice you can see tab called “Archives” next to section “, Latest, Popular, Section” on the main page. But in the Structure I can’t see this tab. My question is, how to add Archive tab into my sites. I try to change tabs.php, because there is something about archive (the last part):

    <a class=”t1 tab” title=””>
    <a class=”t2 tab” title=””>
    <a class=”t3 tab” title=””>
    <?php /* Uncomment for archives view

    that’s how I’ve learned….. copy everything onto a notepad, try your idea, if it blows up in your face then erase it and paste the original back in…. LOL :)

    I’m glad you got it working. Sometimes plugins and other scripts conflict, and there’s not much we can do about it but play around with it until it works.

    Luis
    Thanks. Opera sometimes goes a little wonky when too many things are loading. At least that’s been my experience.

    Kayecee
    Here’s a tutorial I wrote on valid XTHML clickable header images. To make the title go away, you can open “header.php” and wrap this:

    <?php bloginfo('name'); ?>

    With these tags:

    <span></span>

    Then you need to open “style.css” and add this in the header section:

    #header h1 span { display: none; }

    You can have as many tabs as you want to. You just have to manually edit “tabs-categories.php.” However, having too many tabs will break the layout a bit. That’s why there’s only an option to put in eight tabs.

    Josef
    You’ll have to scroll down to the bottom of the file and uncomment the part that displays the archives. You need to delete these lines in both places:

    <?php /* Uncomment for archives tab (must also change below)
    */ ?>

    Ben
    You can use ads if you want, sell products, or make whatever kind of money you want from your blog. The noncommercial part is for those people that like to steal themes and redistribute them. You can’t make money by distributing the theme. I hope this clears things up.

    Hi Justin

    Let me begin by saying congratulations and (especially) THNAKS for releasing such a lovely theme. I am of course referring to your newest WP theme Structure. I love Structure and I currently am in the process of switching a group blog I run over to it. I would like to have it switched over by the end of this month.

    Anyhow, although I am experienced in using Wordpress, I am far from an expert. This brings me to why I am contacting you. I have made several cosmetic changes to your theme with no problem. However I have run into a few problems and was wondering if I might get your help.

    I am not looking for much help and would:

    A)be willing to pay you a little for your troubles. To be honest I’m rather broke but would be happy to paypal you 25$ for your help.

    B)I would more than happy to share any tweaks with the rest of the WP world. I’m looking for secret, just for me modifications, that no one else can use. I just want to get your theme to meet a few of my (and who knows maybe others) needs a little better.

    Here is what I am Looking for

    To alter the excepts display so that it displays full posts (the way WP themes typically do) including author, number of comments, date, categories, etc.

    Alter the way comments display at the bottom of posts so that include; comment number and the other layout style as seen/found on both your visionary and theme you yourself are currently using. More specifically things like the commente’s and comment images.

    Lastly instructions for including other images such as tag, category and date images. Much like your visionary and personal themes.

    hanks again and I hope you are willing to help.

    Hi Justin,

    I’m really enjoying working with the template. We’ve made a bunch of little changes to match it to our needs.

    One suggestion I got from our site editor, take off the width constraint on the feature image. We left the height on to preserve the box size, but constraining both requires her to edit every feature image before including it. otherwise the aspect ratio gets all messed up.

    do you have a list of the changes in the newest release so we can manually insert them into our now altered files?

    Mr. Papa mentioned that he was working on integrating simple forums into this theme. any idea if he’s made any progress?

    Fantastic theme but I’m having a problem with it…and I really am new to Wordpress so I might be just being an idiot here.

    I really like the layout of your demo piece, but my defaul did not look like that, and try as I might I can’t find the way to get one single article to appear above the tabbed section as you have it laid out there.

    What (probably obvious thing) am I missing?

    BTW, under the Structure Options on my dashboard, I don’t have the following:

    - Display Feature Article?
    Select “Yes” or “No” to display a feature article on “home.php.”

    - Feed URL
    Enter your feed URL for the feed section on the front page (defaults to blog’s normal RSS feed).

    - Feed by Email URL
    Enter your feed’s email URL (defaults to blog’s normal RSS feed).

    - Flickr URL
    Enter the URL to your Flickr photostream if you’re using the FlickrRSS plugin (defaults to http://flickr.com).

    Those don’t show up.

    Only Version 1.1.2 has those newest things you’re looking for under theme options. You might’ve downloaded one of the older versions. I’m going to try and trim down that “readme.txt” file at some point. It’s gotten a little long.

    Thanks. What’s great about this theme is that you can choose how light it’s going to be depending on what kind of traffic you get. Over 96% of my visitors use high-speed Internet, at least according to Google Analytics.

    There are many options available. If your site’s visitors have slower connection speeds, then you can easily remove things from your page by way of theme options or widgets. It really depends on what the theme user decides to do. This is also a reason that this theme has very few images.

    I like the template; however, the tabs don’t seem to degrade well. With Javascript turned off. They do nothing but take up space. Could this be an issue of JQuery? I realize that web browsers should run with Javascript on but not all do. Have you considered maybe using Domtab (http://onlinetools.org/tools/domtabdata/) or Tab Panel Magic by Projectseven.com (http://www.projectseven.com/products/tools/tabpanel/index.htm)? With javascript turned off the tabbed blocks stretch out vertically allowing the viewer to see all the links that were intended for them. Plus, the tabs still work as it brings the viewer down to the block with those link.
    Thought you might be interested as it could solve a problem for some viewers.

    It’s not a problem with jQuery, but a problem with how I wrote the XHTML. It’s an issue that I will fix in a later update though. It’s one of those things that’s not on the top of the priority list (though it probably should be) because something around 6% of Internet users have Javascript turned off. Only 1.69% of my site’s visitors have it turned off.

    First off, thanks for the great theme! My question is about feedburner and wordpress. I am having trouble setting up my rss feed through feed burner.

    I downloaded the plugin Wordpress suggest we use however, when I enter my URL (http://www.ryanrreed.com) that is where I have a problem.

    After I enter the URL, Feedburner says it has discovered more than one feed at that address”

    RSS 2.0: http://ryanrreed.com/?feed=rss2
    RSS .92: http://ryanrreed.com/?feed=rss
    Atom 0.3: http://ryanrreed.com/?feed=atom

    When I select RSS 2.0, Feedburner then tells me my URL does not appear to be a valid feed, then proceeds to tell me about an error on line 2 and that “the processing instruction target matching “[xX][mM][lL]” is not allowed.”

    What can I do to get this straightened out? I have googled this topic to death and can’t seem to figure out how to get my feed to work. Thank you for any help you can provide!

    Not so important but want to mention… “link_pages” tag that you used was deprecated since 2.1 so it is better to change it with “wp_link_pages” tag otherwise only the first page of the multipage posts can be viewed.
    And a question: i am translating all the .php docs of the theme into Turkish for my personal use but wanna ask that if a language .po file is available for this theme. I can translate it and it can be easier for other Turkish users to use this perfect theme.
    Thanks again.

    You need to ask this over at Feedburner or WordPress support.

    I’ve seen a few Japanese versions, but not many. To adjust the space between lines, you can use the “line-height” property. In your CSS, it would be something like this:

    .post .entry { line-height: 140%; }

    You’ll have to manually edit “tabs-categories.php” if you want to get your tabs in Japanese, since I’m assuming that your category names are in English. The search box seems to be aligned correctly in IE6, so I wouldn’t know what to do to fix it. You’ll have to follow the examples in “main-nav.php” to get the links to change colors if it’s selected.

    If you need more help, I’ll try to get back to you by the end of the weekend, but I’m a little busier than usual today and tomorrow.

    Howard

    I’ll update the “link_pages” thing in the next update. Thanks for pointing this out. I guess it’s one of those things that is easily overlooked. There is no language .po file.

    We were talking about the video randomizer on Friday. What we’d ideally like to do, is combine it with your “newest video” scheme with an if then construction and get this:

    grab the newest video, if the post date is less than 3 days old show it. else randomize and show one of the cool archival videos.

    We still need to suck up some of your upgrades – I still need to fix the excerpts in the recent posts.

    We’re working on versions for Bicycle.Net and Sportswriter.net this week. Sportwriter.Net needs to use some RSS to Post code so that we can add a bunch of tabs to show feeds/posts for various sports. Bicycle.Net we need to integrate a calendar and a Photo Gallery. But soon we’ll have some very cool Structure based sites.

    You would have to change the “' . $c1 . '” to whatever you want in this line and the ones following it.

    if($c1 !== '') { echo '<li class="c1"><a  class="c1 tabs" title="' . $c1 .'">' . $c1 . '</a></li>'; $loop = 1; }

    But I just found out that Japanese (multi byte) will break the tabs no matter how few and short. So I put in Japanese for only title=”.

    Hello Justin.
    Awesome theme you have here!

    I do have an issue though. When trying to add a small javascript into a post (a digg like vote button) when I save the post part of the script gets commented out.

    I’ve tried both with isual editor onand off, since Iknow WP used to have an issue with it on… no luck.

    Is this from the jquery script? Any fixes?

    Also, what all is the jquery script used for in the theme?

    Thanks,
    Ron

    No problem. I probably should open a forum though.

    Ron
    The jQuery is used only for the tabs. I used a “no conflict” variable in the jQuery that should make it so that it doesn’t interfere with other Javascript. However, some scripts conflict, and there’s no way to anticipate what will happen.

    If the problem is it being commented out by WordPress though, it has nothing to do with the theme. This sounds like it might be a good question over at the WordPress support forums.

    Hi Justin:

    We’re still working on tweaks for structure for appliance.net. I could use a bit of help on two spots:

    1. I wanted to put a second block of tabs low in the right margin. made tabs2.php but I’m getting a variable overlap with the upper tabs block tabs.php so when i click, for example, the 3rd tab in either block they both redraw as the third tab. clearly i have a variable in common so i’m stepping on myself.

    you can see it yourself and laugh. I assume I need to make a change/addition to the .tabbed section of the style.css and then use the same naming scheme to rename the classes in tabs2.php but I’m not having any success.

    Second:

    I want to embed a non youtube video and have it play on the video.php box on the home page.

    Video link

    here for example is a video. any ideas on integrating it?

    have a happy new year. I look forward to your feedback.

    Don’t tell me you didn’t change anything when I obviously saw that you’ve made changes. I see you’ve taken the theme down now though and it could be hard to help without seeing it.

    Howard
    With the tabs, we’ll need to do some class changes for a second set. If you notice the differences between the category tabs and the sidebar tabs, you can see how they’re named differently. I’ll look at what you need as soon as I get a few minutes of free time.

    I’ll also look at the video too. I’ve only tested with YouTube, MetaCafe, and Google Video.

    Pretty much anything’s possible with WordPress. Here’s a cool example of something similar to what you’re talking about: Kookjegek. Also, look at how it’s done in the “recent.php” file.

    You can edit “single.php.” There are several places you could put ads, so if you could be a little more specific about where you want them, I could show you.

    Nina
    Unfortunately, I don’t have a Mac to test on here in Korea. It seems no one around here uses one. Maybe these questions will help us get to the bottom of the issue:

    Have you tested it on other browsers and computers to see if the photos are showing up? Do you have a link that I can see? Have you checked the plugin’s download page to see if there are any other users with the same problem?

    This honestly doesn’t sound like a theme-specific issue, but I’ll try to help the best I can.

    I did scan over your email though. I don’t use widgets on my demo site, so the way it looks on the demo is how the theme comes out of the box.

    The charset is automatically generated by WordPress. You can change it in “header.php.” Here’s what the code looks like:

    Missy
    You can open “main-nav.php” to change or delete the links (not tabs) in your top navigation menu. I’m not sure what you’re asking about creating new Pages. I assume they don’t go anywhere.

    charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>

    Greetings Justin,
    You’re probably getting tired of hearing this, but this theme rocks. I love the way it’s shaping up at my site aesthetically, and the power of this theme in terms of its practicality in displaying and managing content is obvious.

    My question for you is how can I get my pages to display in the main nav at the top of the page. In the past,(with other themes) creating About, Weblinks, Contributors, etc., pages was as simple as creating a page and publishing it on the backend.

    However, this tack had absolutely no effect on the main nav. At that point I figured I’d have to hack the main nav file a bit to get it working. I have zero experience with php, but I thought I could figure it out as I have had fair success with hacking cascading style sheets. After a couple of hours chopping away at the code without any real success I gave up.

    In addition to this, I have found that my images won’t display on the front page with the latest post.

    Any thoughts, suggestions, etc., are appreciated.

    In closing, I will add that even with these minor issues, this theme is great for bloggers wishing to maximize the visibility of their content–clean and elegant, it looks good and is practical ta boot.
    Thanks:)

    If you take a look in the “main-nav.php” file, there’s a link to dynamic menu highlighting. You should check that out. It really takes zero PHP skills.

    I’m assuming the images your referring to is part of “recent.php.” To get those thumbnails to show up, you must put an image URL in for the custom field Value of a Key named “Thumbnail.”

    Dave
    That’s because you’re using the “Excerpts” style. The tabbed categories only works for the “Default” style.

    Magneto
    To make the sidebar not show at all, you’ll have to open “footer.php” to comment it out. However, by doing this, the layout wouldn’t look right. You’ll have to add in custom style rules and probably a PHP statement to show that you commented it out.

    To make all the posts show like the first one, you’ll have to delete the bottom part of the file and query more than one post at the top. It’s a process that’ll take quite a bit of work.

    I’d love to see automated thumbnails created for the main page if it isn’t already done so. You can take advantage of wordpress’s automated thumbpage feature and use code like this, borrowed from a designer i hired to do an original theme previously. I’d love to see it part of this theme, as i can’t code myself.

    Depending on the situation, he says you can also use CSS to downsize the
    full-sized image to 100% width of the container image instead

    No problem. That “readme.txt” file is kind of large right now.

    For the tabs, you’ll have to edit “tabs.php” to change things. There’s a unordered list of the tabs that you’ll have to edit at the top of the file, but you’ll also have to edit the corresponding sections at the bottom of the file to include what you want.

    Thanks. I could definitely use the help on the French translation. My French is very bad.

    This is untested, but I think it would only take editing the query at the bottom of “tabs-categories.php.” Try editing this line to query tags:

    $c_query = new WP_Query('category_name='.$c_name.'&showposts=2');

    I’ll look into it a little more when I have a moment to sit down.

    I really like the theme and would like to change the sizes of the two main blocks below the feature article and the list of tabbed categories. These two “sidebar-like” blocks (block-left) and (block-right) would be changed to allow the left block to be wider while the right block be a bit narrower to allow some of my widgets to look cleaner. I tried editing the stylesheet and adding a defined width to each of the two block styles, but nothing changed. How can I change the width? Thanks!

    I figured it out finally. You have to create a new “.menu” class and name it something else while only changing the width. I added 50px to menu and made another class called “.thinmenu” with 50px removed to keep everything even. Then I went into the functions.php and changed the “block-right” to include “.thinmenu” I kept “block-left” as “.menu” and it worked perfectly.

    hey i did it, (sorry, justin a couple more questions, i know i know, i’m annoying :( ). So anyways, i went into tabs.php, and added in a login script, however, do i need to add the same info, relatively speaking, into sidebar-single.php, and sidebar.php? Also, a link to some kind of tutorial that you find useful for editting this kind of thing would be great!

    thanks, josh

    I’m loving this theme for my travel site, but just having a few issues with the search results. It seems it’s only returning a single result, no matter what the query, and no matter how many results there actually are. For example, if I search for “puerto vallarta” which is in nearly every post, only the most recent article with “puerto vallarta” is returned. Any suggestions on how to change this so all results are returned? The site is here: http://www.insidepv.com/jorge Thanks!

    Make sure you’ve set the flickr stuff under the plugin options page. The theme doesn’t really control whether you see the flickr photos or not.

    Jeni
    I’m not sure what’s going on with your blog. I have concluded that this is only happening to your blog though because I’ve checked several others using this theme, my demo, and my version running locally. Assuming you haven’t changed the code in “search.php,” I think that maybe you’ve got your “Blog Pages” where it says “Show at most” set to “1 post” under “Options > Reading” in your WordPress dashboard. It needs to be set to a higher number. If this isn’t the case, there may be something wrong with your install.

    Myrna
    You can control what goes in each section through the widgets panel.

    Michael
    I’m assuming you’re talking about “recent.php” for the moment. There’s actually more than one way to do it, but what you need to do is edit the “query_posts” PHP line. Check out this tutorial on Query posts: Category parameters.

    Love the theme and it looks awesome on my site (www.mmaopinion.com) but I still have a couple things I want to change. If you look at my page, you can see that my RSS widgets continue past the block and are cut off. How can I fix that? It’s occurring on the true sidebar and does not occur on the tabbed “latest/popular/sections” block.

    Also, I attempted to change the header of those RSS feeds from H2 to H3 and it added an extra line or a margin underneath the H3 and before the RSS content. I’m not sure why that occurs because I couldn’t find anything in the style sheet that dictated any sorta of margin or line height/spacing. Any ideas? Again, it’s all up on the site now if you want to look.

    That’s just a small CSS issue that will be fixed in the next update, which will be in the next couple of days. You can probably fix it by changing this “padding: 0″ in your CSS to this:

    .menu ul li, .tabbed div ul li {
    	padding: 0 0 0 5px;
    	}

    The “h3″ isn’t adding an extra line or margin any more than it’s natural padding and margin. You’ll have to add an additional style rule to your CSS if you want to use it.

    Myrna
    You only need to add the image URL to the “Feature Image” custom field. You’re adding an entire XHTML line of code. For you categories, you need to input what categories (up to 8) under “Presentation > Structure Options” that you want included on the front page. “Uncategorized” is just the default.

    Josh
    You have to edit “main-nav.php” to put what links you want to show. Make sure to read the dynamic menu highlighting article to keep the menu highlighting intact. By looking at your site, it seems that you’ve got everything fixed properly but the link to what page you want to go to. You need to figure out what the Page ID is, and change the number “2″ in this line to that ID:

    echo get_permalink(2);

    Eccentric
    Do you mean to use both the Thumbnail and Feature Image in “single.php”? This would be fairly straightfoward, but there would be no reason for this out-of-the-box with this theme.

    I’ve been meaning to get around to figuring out a way to get the random video thing working, but haven’t had the time with the holidays and some other work. It should only take some PHP script to pull a random post because that’s all you’ll be doing.

    Same with the tabs, but that shouldn’t be too much of a problem. You’ll have to edit both “tabs.js” and the XHTML, and quite possibly the CSS.

    Jemi
    I’m at work right now, so I’ll send you a couple of links when I get home tonight about using custom fields. It wouldn’t hurt searching Google for “WordPress custom fields” in the meantime.

    That should help you learn a little more about using custom fields.

    Howard
    This isn’t exactly a perfect working example at the moment, but it should give us somewhere to work from to get the random video working. I’d like to throw this option into the mix in a later update if we ever get it working. The problem right now is that the post title isn’t changing, but it’s showing a random video (at least on my locally running version).

    Replace the query and start of the while loop with this code (change the ID to whatever your video category is):

    // Query one post from "video" category
    	global $wpdb; // Global wordpress variables
    	$video_query = "
    		SELECT *
    		FROM $wpdb->posts
    		LEFT JOIN $wpdb->term_relationships ON ($wpdb->posts.ID = $wpdb->term_relationships.object_id)
    		LEFT JOIN $wpdb->term_taxonomy ON ($wpdb->term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id = $wpdb->term_taxonomy.term_taxonomy_id)
    		WHERE $wpdb->posts.post_status = 'publish'
    		AND $wpdb->term_taxonomy.taxonomy = 'category'
    		AND $wpdb->term_taxonomy.term_id = 11
    		ORDER BY RAND()
    		LIMIT 1";
    // Get the results
    	$video_posts = $wpdb->get_results($video_query);
    
    	if ($video_posts) :
    	foreach($video_posts as $post) :
    	setup_postdata($post);

    Also, replace the “endwhile;” at the end of the file with this:

    endforeach; endif;

    This isn’t really my area of expertise, so maybe Mr Papa will drop by and offer some advice.

    Hi Justin

    I was wondering if you could help me with a little change I’m trying to implement on my blog.

    I want to display two recent coulombs side by side with the latest posts. For this I created a recent2.php but I don’t know how to make it display the 4th 5th and 6th post. Basically the first would display the 1st 2nd and 3rd latest posts. The second recent2.php would display the 4th 5th and 6th latest post.

    I’ll keep trying. FYI, it looks like Structure doesn’t play well with the Sociable plugin which is very popular. When I activated it, the icons it displayed at the end of the post were HUGE and display stacked vertically instead of horizontally. I thought you’d want to know since so many people use that plug in—not trying to be critical at all! I love your work.

    This doesn’t sound too hard, and I think all you should have to do is offset the number of posts by 3 in the query. Try this in your “recent2.php” file:

    $posts = query_posts
    ('offset=3&orderby=date&order=DESC&showposts='.$posts_wanted+1);

    Maybe that’ll do the trick.

    Myrna
    I hope you get your custom fields working. It’s not all that hard once you realize how it works. And yeah, I’ve seen that sociable works for many others that are using the theme.

    I do have another idea. Actually, it’s the same idea, but the order of the code is different. You can’t use “offset” until after “show_posts” in the query. Here’s the revised code:

    $posts = query_posts
    ("orderby=date&order=DESC&showposts=$posts_wanted+1&offset=3");

    Also, make sure you use the double quotation marks in this too. You may also want to change the offset number to 4 if you will have a feature post in the last three or four posts on a regular basis.

    This isn’t a foolproof plan because we don’t know exactly when the last feature article was posted, but it will definitely do. I’m sure there’s a way to check for that, but it would take a lot more coding and time than I could put in.

    Hi Justin, (and others here)…

    Great theme, your talented! I have a quick question and I’ve read through the comments here and through the readme.txt, so please forgive me if I’m missing something already covered.

    My question concerns thumbnail images. I’ve used the thumnail key and value to insert a thumbnail into a post. I’ve also used the feature image key and value to get a thumbnail to show in my featured post on the main page.

    The question:
    I’m trying to accomplish getting a thumbnail to show like on the lower left of your demo page. I may not be starting from the right spot though, as on my page the lower left box is filled with excerpts that link to posts, but I notice on your demo page that these posts link to a post in the archives. Mine links directly to the post.

    Would it be possible to offer an explanation on this? I’m having trouble understanding. Thanks to anyone who can help.

    The only problem I have with it is, the formatting of the posts on the main page in the feature column, and below. HTML formatting isn’t preserved, i.e. no space for paragraph, superscripts etc.

    Is there a way to address that issue.

    No problem. I knew it had a simple solution.

    If your Thumbnail is showing up on your individual posts, then it should show up in the section that shows thumbnails, “recent.php.” Also, on the demo, the links are to the individual posts, not an archive page.

    Jemi
    Give me an example of an image URL you’re using. It might have to do with the path you’re using. If you’re using a path that would work from your index, but not an individual post, then it wouldn’t work correctly. Here are two examples of the image paths you should be using:

    /wp-content/uploads/2008/01/image.jpg
    http://demo.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/image.jpg

    Mr Papa and Armin
    You can check out the “readme.txt” and “new-style-rules.css” for more detailed changes than the ones offered at the top of the page. Honestly, unless you want the “Full Posts” layout option, then there’s no need to update. Maybe I’ll just add a complete change log for viewing from this page though. Here is what “readme.txt” has in its updates section:

    VERSION 1.1.3 ***
    - Placed the <p> outside of the_tags fuction in "single.php."
    - Deleted the extra "s" on "1 Comments" in "features.php."
    - Deleted the extra "l" in the title of one of the feed links in "header.php."
    - Added a "Full Posts" layout option
    	-- Changes were made to "functions.php" and "home.php."
    	-- A new file called "full-posts.php" was added.
    - Several CSS changes were made (see "new-style-rules.css") for the "Full Posts" style option and a few minor bugs.
    - Updated the license details so others can more easily understand its details.

    Anirudh
    There are no plans for a fluid-width version of this theme. It was created with very specific dimensions that wouldn’t do well being fluid, at least not with the “Default” layout option.

    Ari
    The download is Version 1.1.3. You can always read me article on creating valid XHTML clickable header images.

    Michael
    I haven’t tried the plugin out, but will if I get the time. Are you trying to put it in “category.php”?

    Stefan
    You’re welcome. It was something I’d been thinking about from the start, but had to think of the best way to do it without adding a ton of extra CSS because “style.css” is already a massive file.

    Marc
    In the feature article, HTML formatting is preserved. For the tabbed category section, you can use this to style paragraphs:

    #home #home-categories .entry p {
    	/* Put style rules here */
    	}

    Thanks for the reply. It is now working. I honestly don’t know what I was doing wrong, but something obviously;)

    I wonder if you could explain the “archives” answer though. On the lower left, you have the “Jordan”, “Firefox”, and “Piano” post excerpts with the thumbnail images. If I hover over the title of each of these posts, I get a path like this: http://demo.justintadlock.com/archives/jordan-back-in-the-game

    I’m confused by the word archives here. Can you explain a bit? It’s obvious that you’re busy with questions here and probably busy exploring your new country;) If you have time to answer, that would be great, but please don’t bother if you think it’s something I’ll learn along the way…

    Justin, that wasn’t exactly what I was referring to, and I won’t even bother to mention I don’t understood your instructions, since I have no idea what “style rules” to apply.

    When you go to my home page), and as is the case with “categories”, when reading the excerpt from the feature article, there is no separation of paragraphs, and the superscript formatting for the “degree” sign is also gone, leaving a lower case “o”.

    Of course when you click on read more, or the title, the post is displayed with the proper formatting in all cases.

    The URL is just how I have permalinks set up on the demo site. The word “archives” is arbitrary here. That still takes you to the individual post and not an archives page. If you look at the address bar in your browser while viewing this page, you’ll notice the word “archives” in it too, but this is an individual post. I hope this helps.

    One reason the paragraph formatting isn’t working with your excerpts is because you’re letting WordPress control them. The best way to get better formatting with your excerpts is to add what text you want in the section labeld “Optional Excerpts” from the “Write Page” in your WordPress administration panel.

    To get a degrees sign, you should be using the XHTML character entity that looks like this as opposed to superscript:

    &#176;

    You would have to apply style rules like this:

    #home #home-categories .entry p {
    	margin: 15px 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	}

    Of course, I can’t tell you exactly what style rules to apply because I don’t know exactly how you want it to look.

    Damn Justin, that was way too easy, and solved most of the problems.

    But it still doesn’t solve the formatting problem (paragraphs) in the category section below the feature article on the home page.

    I would just like those excerpts to look just like the feature excerpt.

    I did make sure there were excerpts to those posts, but that didn’t seem to work.

    The first thing I recommend is reading the “readme.txt” file. That file gives instructions on how to accomplish both of those feats. After that, if you’re having problems, let me know exactly what the problem is and provide a URL if you’re running the theme on a site.

    To get more articles to show, you need to open “tabs-categories.php” and edit this line where it says “showposts” to the amount of posts you want shown:

    $c_query = new WP_Query('category_name='.$c_name.'&showposts=4');

    If you want more category tabs, then you’ll have to manually edit “tabs-categories.php” and “functions.php.” Unfortunately, it would take too much time and coding to show you how to do it. You really need some basic PHP knowledge or be very good at logical thinking to do this. The code is fairly well-structured, so you might be able to figure it out.

    I don’t recommend adding more tabs than that eight. It would almost definitely break the layout. In the demo, I’m only using seven tabs, and that’s with reasonably short category names.

    Marc
    Did you add the CSS code I gave you to “style.css”? This seems to work perfectly fine for me. Of course, you might want to play around with the margin size to format it like you want.

    Ok I see. Yes it is working now, but I don’t like the fact it separates the title from the body with a space as well.

    I don’t think I like that any better than the way it was originally.

    Don’t worry about it any more. The theme is fine. I’m probably just a little too neurotic for my own good.

    I did learn some things, so it wasn’t all for not.

    Thanks for the help!

    I’m not sure what “Featured Post Column” is. I’m assuming it’s some sort of plugin or something. I didn’t intentionally add support for it, but I’m not sure if it works with the theme or not.

    Everything looks good, but I don’t think you need the “share this” and ratings plugins on the front page. Typically, you’d want to only add those to the single post page.

    Hello, Justin!
    My name is Igor and I’m from Moscow, Russia. I very like your theme, called “Structure”. Now I try to use this theme and get one question, if you give an ansver I be very glad.
    So, I use theme and do feature article with Feature Image. I follow your read.txt and all right. But I look at your Live Demo of this theme and see, that than I open some feature post, for example “Jordan back in the game?”, there is no Feature Image in the body of the post, but another bigger image.
    And then i open feature article in my blog, I see only Feature Image, or, if I embed some image in the post, then i open this post i see both image.
    Can you tell me, what i must do to have a Feature articles like in your Live demo?
    Best regards, Igor

    You don’t need any plugins to make it work. There are special instructions in the “readme.txt” file. If you could give me a URL or be more specific about what problems you’re having, I could help you out more.

    That’s a good catch. After nearly 5,000 downloads, you’re the first person to point this out. I’ve updated the theme to Version 1.1.4 for the fix. You don’t need to download the new version though. Just open “header.php” and find the link to the feed email. You’ll see this:

    <?php if($feed !== '') echo $feed; else bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>

    Change “$feed” to “$feed_email” in both cases. That should do the trick. I think I owe you a big thanks for catching this.

    Robert
    I actually like the theme you got up now, but if you feel the need for change, there’s definitely a lot of room for customization here.

    See this comment or check out the “readme.txt” included with the download.

    Igor
    The “Jordan back in the game?” article on the demo isn’t a feature article. There’s actually another custom field I use, which you can use with the theme, called “Image.” If you use that custom field, it overrides the “Feature Image” and/or “Thumbnail.” If you embed an image in your post, you’ll see both the image you embedded and the “Feature Image” or “Thumbnail.” I hope this helps explain it.

    I’m glad I could help with this. I’ve edited the code and everything is working great now with the email subscription:)

    I had a bit of a brainstorm last night too, and it’s something that I probably won’t get to for a few weeks, but I am thinking about something and wondering if I can get your thoughts on if it’s possible?

    On my site, I have a page called “Books”. I am trying to come up with a user-friendly way to let let the visitor choose what category of books to browse, i.e. Romance, Thriller, Humor, etc. What I thought of trying was to make a template for this page and include the tabs style that you’ve used at the top of the sidebar, except to put these across the entire page.

    Another, and probably better option, would be to duplicate the tabs you’ve included on the main page. These would include the summaries, and might work better than just a list for me.

    Hmmm, anyway, just brainstorming here, while I work out the details in my head. I’ll try it in a few weeks and let you know if I come up with anything.

    Additional Info: I have made a new page template by copying index.php and adding the page template code to the top and have named it mynewtemplate.php

    I then went to Admin–>Write Page and created a new page called “Test”. Then, under Page Template, I selected “mynewtemplate.php”, then published the page. There were a couple of issues on the new page right away.

    1. For some reason, the featured article image is HUGE on the “Test” page although, it’s still normal on the main page. Because of this, everything else below is pushed aside or missing. To try and remedy this, I edited “mynewtemplate.php” and commented out this line of code:

    //if($show_feature == ‘Yes’) include(TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/features.php’);

    I did this, and it did remove the featured article from being displayed at the top of my “Test” page, but for some reason it looks like some of the styling for the tabs is gone and the layout breaks a bit.

    I don’t want to post a link here because the site has no real posts yet, all test posts, and I don’t want the world to see it yet. Justin, if you would be willing to take a quick look at what my page looks like, I would be most appreciative.

    $image = get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘Feature Image’, $single = true);
    // Checks for feature image alt text
    $image_alt = get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘Feature Image Alt’, $single = true);

    @ Ismael Martinez

    This is explained in the readme.txt file included with the theme.

    POST THUMBNAILS
    *******************
    You can add thumbnail images with each post.

    - Create a custom field Key named “Thumbnail” and give it a Value of the URL of your image.
    - Optional: create a Key named “Thumbnail Alt” and give it a Value of the alt text you want displayed (defaults to post title).
    - Thumbnails are scaled down to 75px by 75px. I suggest making your images this size before uploading for the best quality.

    If you don’t know how to add a custom field key, don’t worry, it’s pretty easy. When you’re creating or editing a post, look at the bottom and you’ll see “Custom Fields”. You’ll then see two input boxes, one for “Key” and one for “Value”. In the “Key” field type the word “Thumbnail” and in the “Value” field, insert the link to the image you want to show. Click “Save” or “Update” the Custom Fields area, then save (or re-save) your post. You should see the thumbnail show up.

    I had trouble with this at first too, don’t worry, you’ll get it:)

    Hope this helps.

    I think you’re asking how to use a latest comments plugin in “tabs.php.” If that’s the case, which plugin are you using? Otherwise, could you try to explain your problem a little better?

    Krishna
    You can just exclude the category from the query, like this (you would need to change the “3″ to your category ID):

    $posts = query_posts
    ('cat=-3&orderby=date&order=DESC&showposts='.$posts_wanted+1);

    If it doesn’t work, you might have to move the category exclusion later in the query order.

    One Eyed View
    I would definitely look at the structure of “tabs-categories.php” for something like this. You’ll have to figure out how “tabs.js” works too. Just do what I do — play around with it until it works. It sounds like a great idea.

    As far as the page template goes, you definitely don’t want to use what’s in “index.php” for that. That’s a highly customized file that wouldn’t work as a page template without some editing.

    Maybe you could get it working by making sure the container div’s ID is “home.” Take a look at the bottom of “header.php” to see how the ID is different for the home page and every other page.

    Igor
    That’s correct. There’s plenty more code you could cut out, but that’s the easiest way to accomplish that.

    Still having difficulty trying to figure out how to add a second tabs section for the sidebar and a second categories section.

    Creating a copy of tabs and calling it tabs2 and changing the t1, t2, … references so they don’t conflict with tabs, adding to the case statements where necessary and adding additional fields in the stylesheet doesn’t seem to work.

    Say there are 4 tabs in both tabs and tabs2. When I click on the second tab in tabs2, both tabs and tabs2 change. Kind of like an exploding accordion effect.

    I’m trying to understand the javascript.

    I have no use for the flickr.php but would love a revision of structure that commented out a second tabs section for the sidebar and a second categories section for the main section. From there it would be much easier to extrapolate from the source code.

    Many thanks for a phenomenal theme, Justin.

    Hi Justin,
    Thanks again for a very cool theme. My question has to do with layout on the homepage. I would like to combine the “features” block with the tabbed category block. Next, I’d like to place that block at the top of my homepage right underneath the header. As I see it I would lose a category tab, but I would also gain a lot of space while simultaneously putting that day’s post and my tabbed categories at the top of the page. Is there an easy way to do this without a lot of coding? I’ll be experimenting with this in the meantime, so if you check out the page, expect things to be a bit scrambled.

    Hey Justin, here’s the update. I think this will work, but please tell me if this is too convoluted;)

    I created a new template page by copying home.php, entering the template code at the top, and naming it “test.php”. I also commented out the code to pull in the features.php page because I want the category tabs across the top of the page:

    //if($show_feature == ‘Yes’) include(TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/features.php’);

    I created a new page in the Admin area, and selected “test.php” as the template. When I did this, the category tabs showed, but were all askew (ala my previous comment).

    To fix this, I followed your lead by looking at the bottom of the header.php page, where I found this code:

    <?php // displays a different class if at home.php
    if (is_home()) echo ”;

    After Googling a bit, I found this page on the Wordpress Codex explaining Conditional Tags. http://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags
    After reading, and some trial and error with the syntax, my code now looks like this:

    <?php // displays a different class if at home.php
    if (is_home()) echo ”;
    elseif (is_page(’12′)) echo ”;

    This tells the header.php to write the for not only the home page but also for my test.php page (12 is the page id of my test page), and the category tabs worked great!

    However, I need to specify different categories for this test.php page. Here’s what I’ve done:

    I copied the tabs-categories.php page and renamed it to tabs-categories-test.php. Then in my test.php page I changed the code to point to tabs-categories-test.php instead of tabs-categories.php.

    Then I opened my new tabs-categories-test.php and tried to change the category id to a new category I created with an id of 28, like this:

    // Tabs 1 – 8

    $c1 = $st_category_28;

    This broke my tab layout again, because it doesn’t grab the category title (regularly this is entered in the Structure Options in Admin)

    So I tried the same thing again, this time using the category slug I assigned “Cat One”, like this:

    // Tabs 1 – 8

    $c1 = “Cat One”;

    $c2 = $st_category_2;

    …and this seemed to do the trick! Yaaay!

    The next thing I’d like to try is putting features.php back in, but having a different “Featured Post” than is what on the main page. I’m assuming that I need to dig into the custom fields, but I have to think on how that would work. When I create a post, I would like to somehow specify that it is a Featured post, but also on what page it will be featured.

    Any thoughts from anyone on any of this would be great. I hope it helps someone:)

    Chad
    I don’t think there’d be an easy way to do this without a bit of coding work. Maybe you can create a category named “features,” and use that as the first tab.

    One Eyed View
    The second category code you showed is the correct way to do it.

    $c1 = "Cat One";

    You could probably use the same custom fields as you’re using to accomplish the featured post feat, but I don’t have any ideas off the top of my head at the moment. You might need to create a custom field or a specific tag that would stand as a query variable or something.

    Hugo
    Open “sidebar.php” and move the line that calls for “ads.php” above the line that calls for “tabs.php.” You’ll have to copy the ads line and change it to “ads2.php” to get the second block of ads.

    Dear Justin, I apreciated you wp theme. I decided to put under the header a div post to insert a breacunbs menu so to display similar a post style (with the border). That’s all right execpt just for the page of the blog. I think it’s missing some DIV in the relative page but I don’t know which is it. Tnx a lot. Carletto

    Hi Justin, since I am using your theme, Technorati seems to ignore my site, although I have pinged several times.
    Any ideas?
    (Could you please answer my question of Jan 15th?)

    Sorry, I was in a hurry this morning and overlooked a few things. There are two ways to do this.

    First, you could change the “list-style-type” to whatever type of bullet you want. You might have to change the padding or margin of this too.

    .menu ul li, .tabbed div ul li {
    	list-style-type: none;
    	}

    Or, you can add a background image to this:

    .menu ul li a, .tabbed div ul li a {
    	background: url(images/your-image.gif) no-repeat 0 0;
    	}

    Of course, you’d have to adjust the “0 0″ to position the image.

    Here’s some good websites for figuring out lists:
    W3School’s CSS List
    CSS Reference
    Taming Lists
    I hope this helps out.

    Armin
    You could definitely do this. Basically, you just need to combine the call for the “Thumbnail” in “recent.php” with “tabs-categories.php.” You should check out Kookjegek and what they’ve done. It would take some CSS modifications too.

    As far as Technorati goes, a theme has nothing to do with that. A theme is more front end, while WordPress is your back end, which means that it handles all that stuff. I’ve had this problem with Technorati before and had to add my re-add my site to get it working.

    One Eyed View
    No problem. I might have to add the forums if you all keep bugging me about it. :)

    The breadcrumb menu looks great. I’m not sure what the problem is though. Everything seems to work fine from what I see.

    On my blog (url above), the featured posts is not working. I loaded blog contents and theme to a local XAMPP test server and everything works fine.

    On the blog, however, the post shows up normally without being featured. The post I am trying to get on top is in the news category tab as ‘Messi is finally…’

    I am not a tech nut, and know my way around, but this is bothering me. It worked on a local setup. Could it be something server-side?

    You would have to edit “footer.php” and the footer files at the bottom of “style.css.” This isn’t really ideal unless you know how to edit XHTML and CSS.

    Armin
    I was wondering about Technorati myself. It seems that everything’s working again though. I just jumped up 1,000 spots in ranking after a long delay.

    Josh
    You’ll have to figure out what classes or IDs are used for that widget, then write the CSS code for the login widget. The archives tab gives you a list to your monthly archives.

    Huh??

    Bryan
    You might want to try adjusting the background, margin, and padding on these things in the CSS file:

    .tabbed div ul
    .tabbed div ul li
    .tabbed div ul li a

    If I decide to implement a forum, it would be Mr Papa’s Simple Forum plugin or bbPress.

    Thanks. :)

    Michael Pieters
    I’ve looked over the WP-Snap plugin and can’t do much from here. To use this, it would take some serious editing of the category template files and CSS. Basically, you’ll just have to play around with it until you get it working because the “category.php” file included with this theme isn’t like your typical category template.

    Sumesh
    I see you’ve figured it out now.

    Sik
    The Key isn’t “excerpt” but “Excerpt.” You choose the Key name, then input what text you want for the Value. Otherwise, just the excerpt or optional excerpt will show up. Do you have a URL that I can see? If you want to query the latest posts from a particular category, you should check out Query Posts from the WordPress codex.

    Myrna
    Neither option is working for you because you aren’t using the correct custom field Key. The custom field Key should be named “Feature Image.” The Value of this Key should be the URL of the image. I put a sort of check in the code to see if user’s are following the directions explicitly. Here’s what it says in your source code (see the highlighted area).

    Yoichi
    The only thing you might want to do for this is change the margin a bit in this part of the code (can be found in the section titled “Sidebar Ads”):

    .ads img {
    	float: left;
    	margin: 5px 4px 5px 15px;
    	padding: 0;
    	}

    Al
    When writing a post, you must put it in the category named “Video.” Then, you must input the video embed URL from YouTube as the Value of the custom field Key named “Video.” There’s a section in the “readme.txt” file included with the theme that gives an example of how to accomplish this with YouTube. Check the section labeled “Adding Videos.”

    I take it you’re fairly new to WordPress since you’ve just switched from Joomla. A good place to start learning about WordPress is the WordPress Codex if you’re unfamiliar with the system.

    Your tabs are showing up fine. None of them are missing. Maybe you could be more specific about what problems you’re having. It would help a lot more.

    Hi Justin,
    I wanted to thank you for the reply and also share some info with those who might have a similar desire to combine the tabbed categories container with the feature post option. This is an easy “fix” which, in my judgment, requires little or no coding experience. I readily admit my hack status here, so if this is bad practice then I’m sure you’ll correct me, Jason. Anyway, I don’t know jack about what is considered “orthodox” in the coding world. All I know is what worked for me and this mod fit the bill. Here goes.

    First, locate the “feature.php” file in your theme editor. Next copy and paste the entire file into your favorite text editor and save it. After you’ve done that, return to your theme editor; highlight the contents of that file, and hit the “backspace” button. This will delete the contents of that file. (If you don’t perform this action, then you will have two features containers on your homepage with redundant content.)
    Next locate and open the “tabs-categories.php” file. Highlight the entire contents, then copy and paste it into your text editor and save. Now, in your theme editor, scroll down until you see “.” Directly beneath that you’ll see a line which reads, <div class=”c c1. highlight from just below that line up to “category 2″ then hit your backspace button to remove the category 1 contents. Next copy and paste the contents of the features.php file you have saved in your text editor into the section of the tabs-categories file you just deleted. You’re almost finished.
    Now go to your stylesheet and scroll down until you see this:

    /* FEATURE */
    #home .feature {
    float: left;
    width: 593px;
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    margin: 10px 0 10px 0;
    padding: 0 10px 10px 5px;
    background: #fff;

    Remove the entire “border” line so it looks like this:

    #home .feature {
    float: left;
    width: 593px;
    margin: 10px 0 10px 0;
    padding: 0 10px 10px 5px;
    background: #fff;

    Go back to your homepage and hit “refresh.” Now, your feature post should be seamlessly integrated into your tabbed category container and be prominently displayed at the top of your homepage. You’ll have more space now to display your content as well. For example, I was able to add additional recent titles with blurbs and I plan on adding another spot for video.

    Once again, hat’s off to you Jason. This is a truly remarkable template. The more I play with it, the more I love it. Both flexible and intuitive, this is a great way to maximize displaying your content. Did I say that already? What the hell…If I’ve said it already, it’s at least worth saying again.
    AWESOME JOB JT!

    Though I haven’t tested it, it looks pretty good. Thanks for sharing with the community. I’d like to point out that you shouldn’t delete everything in “features.php” because you might want that file later. Instead, go to “Structure Options” under the “Presentation” tab in your WordPress admin panel and set “Display Feature Article” to “No.” That way, there won’t be a useless call to that file in “home.php.”

    The last post tagged “features” will always show by default, which would be the same as showing it by ID.

    Also, I inserted the You Tube video successfully, but the title of the VIDEO article shows twice – once on top of the You Tube thumb and a second time in the left column (I guess this is recent posts) which messes up the title of the article there. Any suggestions?

    I’m fairly certain it wasn’t 6:45 a.m. because I’ve kept the time zone to Central even though I’m in South Korea at the moment. :)

    One thing you could do to not show posts from the “Video” category in the “recent.php” block is to find the line that looks similar to this and paste this code over it:

    $posts = query_posts("orderby=date&order=DESC&showposts=$posts_wanted+1&cat=-11");

    Change the “cat=-11″ to your category ID for “Video.” This might also result in you losing a post in “recent.php” because it will be skipped.

    As far as the latest post thing goes, just give the newest article every five days a tag of “features.” It won’t change until you tag another article with “features.”

    Josh
    This is automatically built into WordPress and included in this theme. Read about Author Templates at the WordPress Codex.

    Justin,

    before I get started: I think you should have your donation link displayed a bit more prominently. On an a$$-long page like this one, it might deter people from sending you some cash if they have to spend an hour looking for the link.

    Took me only a minute or two, but I’m a fast reader. ;)

    Why I’m writing? Well, for the first time ever I sent someone $50 for a theme. The reasons are very simple:

    a) It’s a great theme.

    b) You saved me a lot more money because I was about to pay someone to help me design something new for my site and when I came across this theme … I caught fire and manged myself. I’m far from done (I’m estimating another 4 weeks of work next to my day job to polish it up and tweak and change things), but I’m off … and enjoying myself. BTW: I used to design and publish lots of stuff myself but I’ve begun to be somewhat visually impaired and starting from scratch with hundreds of hours fine-tuning stuff (browser bugs, browser bugs) just ain’t it for me anymore. I’d rather golf, to be perfectly honest. And, yes, you can call me cheap because I saved a lot more than the measly $50 I sent you. :) Consider a million thanks to be included in the transfer.

    c) I’m hoping that you’ll continue to support and work on this theme. It has huge potential. now that I’ve started studying it. I have quite a few ideas what could be done with it. Besides, if you keep it up, people like me might cough up some cash once again. Call it an incentive, if you like … I’ve too often seen great themes abandoned all too quickly because the designer hopped onto the next thing he/she came up with. It would be sad to see this happen with “Structure”. Persistence and stamina, please. ;)

    d) I hope other people will send you some cash as well … and that’s why I’m posting here instead of sending you a mail. I’ve had a look at all the other relatively new “magazine”-style themes and yours beats them by a mile … because it is free and it is very, very flexible. Besides, because it is free, one can give it a serious spin before plunking down some cash.

    e) I read you’ve started teaching. I’m a teacher myself. Been one for 15 years now. We gotta stick together. I sent you my (measly) 15th anniversary check, so to speak.

    Best to you and greetings from the other side of the globe (right now, that would be the farthest south-western point you can find on a map of Germany).

    Volkher

    P.S.: I’ve never had an easier time tweaking a theme. Pretty well structured and easy to figure out if you’ve ever fiddled around with stuff like that for an hour or two. Good work!

    Thanks for using the theme and taking the time to read over things first.

    I’m afraid you’ll have to elaborate on your question a bit about meta links. I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking. Do you want to add some type of widgets or something to the sidebar? Or, do you want to add things to your single posts?

    Comments are separated from trackbacks and pingbacks already.

    Volkher
    First, I want to say thanks for the donation. It’s much appreciated. I suppose donations are always a good incentive to continue building upon the theme.

    I didn’t originally have a donate link, but a few people convinced me to do so because they wanted to donate. Now, it’s gotten pushed back down the page by the “Structure in other languages” section. Maybe I should bump it back up above that.

    I’d definitely love to hear your ideas on what other things could be done with the theme. It’d be nice to build in a few more features.

    And yes, we (teachers) must stick together. I’d love to travel to Germany sometime too. My dad lived there for a while when he was in the army, and I’ve taken a couple of German classes.

    You’re welcome.

    I’m a bit short on time right now (we have finals here for the graduating classes and I’ve got a ton of work to do … so briefly …

    a) I’d love to see this theme taken a step or two further, meaning I’d love to see it get the attention it deserves. I need to work on everything to get more of a feel for it, but I’m sure I can suggest a few things then (keep in mind … my programming skills suck).

    b) Put some larger link (image, icon) somewhere for the donations. Easier to find.

    c) Maybe you could start sth somewhere; a new “support” post for this theme? This page, especially with all the trackbacks, is getting to be too long for people who have bad or slower connection (mine is bearable, but on the slow end when compared to international users with high-speed access).

    d) I’d love for more users to chime in here with “how-to’s”, tips and questions. No idea if that will fly in the long run, but it would be nice. A small forum (Vanilla, whatever) would be nice in which you can let the users “do the talkin’” (=help you keep support posts, time, whatever to a minimum). BTW: I could easily host a forum on one of my spare server accounts. Let me know.

    Volkher

    P.S.: You’re always welcome around these parts should you ever decide to travel more than halfway across the globe. No German needed (but an advantage). Germans can’t speak any foreign languages, but they try their best after 13 kegs of beer … or, in my case, 11 bottles of wine. ;)

    Cheers!

    PLUS

    How do I create another tab JUST for that category?

    The thing is, that category gets feed through RSS and it keeps filling my latest tab. So I wanted to exclude it from Latest tab and include it in a new tab which would only list posts from that category.

    Any help?

    I am a novoice at php, so would appreciate your help.

    Thanks for the input. It’s much appreciated. I’m thinking of using Mr Papa’s Simple Forum, which has been talked about a few times, but I haven’t decided. Right now, I’m trying out this paged comments plugin. However, I just read today that Matt and Co. are going to build something called TalkPress. I’m sure that’s a while into the future though.

    If you’re having problems with the FlickrRSS plugin, you might want to check out the plugin’s page. I don’t know anything about how it works. I’ve only added the code for compatibility.

    James
    The image resizing thing is because you’re using the “Full Posts” option and there’s a slight bug in the code. Find this code in “style.css” to change:

    .recent img, .excerpts img {
    	float: left;
    	width: 75px;
    	height: 75px;
    	margin: 5px 10px 0 0;
    	}

    You can remove the width and height to fix this problem now. Or, you can wait for the next update to roll around.

    Make sure to read the sections titled “Theme Options” and “Feature Articles” in “readme.txt.” It’ll explain everything. I’ve noticed that you have no articles tagged “features” on your site.

    To get your sidebar to show up on the left, you’ll either have to learn CSS or hire me to change it for you.

    Myrna
    Thanks. I’m glad you got everything working.

    TheBloggerTips
    Do you mean that you want the latest post to replace the feature post?

    You’ll have to manually edit the code to get the tabbed section of the sidebar to move to the middle of the page. I think if you look at the code in “sidebar.php” and the bottom part of “home.php,” you’ll see how the two sections are related. You’ll have to transfer the tabbed section over to “home.php.”

    Amir
    You’ll need to change this line in the latest section to look like this (change “cat=-3″ to your category ID):

    get_posts('numberposts=10&offset=0&cat=-3');

    There is already an additional tab built into the theme. It’s just commented out. By using the same code in the latest section, you can create a list from that single category. Just change the code above to look like this (change “category=3″ to your category ID):

    get_posts('numberposts=10&offset=0&category=3');

    This hasn’t been tested. It’s just something I came up with on the spot, so I hope it works correctly.

    Great theme! Am trying to duplicate your demo page with a new domain of mine. One question. Don’t want to have the Video Post that is displayed in your custom video widget in other post lists. I went into the video.php file and took out the // lines as you direct and restored the file. But the video post is still showing up in the “structure recent” widget that shows 3 most recent posts.

    Love the theme. Quick question though. I would like for one category, or maybe the the single post page to not have a sidebar. How do I remove the sidebar from either the category or the single post?

    No problem. I’m glad you have it working like you want.

    The code you would need to remove videos from the loop is this (change “3″ to your video category ID):

    $posts = query_posts
    ("orderby=date&order=DESC&showposts=$posts_wanted+1&cat=-3");

    Jason
    First, you might want to read conditional tags from the WordPress Codex. In “footer.php,” replace the line near the top calling for the sidebar with this:

    <?php
    // If single or category page
    if(is_single() || is_category()) {
    	echo '';
    	}
    // If not a single or category page
    else {
    	include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/sidebar.php');
    	}
    ?>

    Of course, you’d have to completely restyle these pages too. Otherwise, you’d just have a big empty section where your sidebar was.

    As many others have done, you can always make a donation. There’s a link at the top of the page too.

    I was just experimenting with the quick tag, and it’s not working as expected. After some searching, I’ve found that some themes may not support this. Can you verify that Structure does not support this, or am I missing something?

    The support article I found suggested looking for this in either the index.php or the page.php pages. I looked and did not find this in these Structure pages.

    Can you offer any advice on this?

    I salute you for answering a desperate woman’s prayers… have been searching for the correct theme to change the home page of my main blog to a magazine style with the .js tabs.

    In the meantime, started to use the theme for a blog (please see at celebritydivorces.net/about) and feel like a noob for asking – but how do I make the Blog title disappear and stop it from appearing over my header image. Managed a temporary fix by deleting the “blog title” in “options”/”general” section. However, there is a better way, can you please englighten me.

    This is the css I changed to include the header image – as I wanted to keep the right hand side Header area free for banner ads.

    #header h1 a {
    width: 420px;
    height: 100px;
    display: block;
    background: url(images/logo.gif) no-repeat top left;
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0 0 0 5px;
    }
    #header h1 a span { display: none; }

    Thanks a million “genuine” times. It will be a privilege to write the best possible review for your theme in my MarketingDefined blog.

    See comment 464. Once I got my brain in gear, figured out that a tiny alteration to the header.php template would stop the blog title being superimposed in text over my new header graphic. Simply delete the last bit of code in the following h1 tag

    <a href="" title=""></a>

    So that the line in the header.php now reads as:

    <a href="" title=""></a>

    Thanks. The header is working perfectly and I’m just loving this theme. Intend using it as the “shell” for all future WP sites.

    Would be great if you’d consider a Support forum for Structure, as the comments are getting quite lengthy and searching thru them for solutions is awkward.

    The CSS you provided looks good. Just make sure you change this line in “header.php” to put the “span” around the proper area. It should look like this now:

    <h1>
    <a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>">
    <span><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></span>
    </a></h1>

    Or, you can just delete what you deleted. I’m definitely thinking about a forum, but haven’t had the time to implement one yet. The popularity of the theme kind of snuck up on me, and I was a little unprepared for the amount of comments I’ve received.

    J.A. Vidania
    Great. I loved to see more customization of the theme. It might be a bit before I put together my next showcase, but I’ve already bookmarked your site for it.

    Sam
    You could definitely put an entire post in one of the tabs. You might want to check out the loop and the loop in action. As far as I know, it should retain proper formatting. However, that depends on what you want to do, like adding a comments, post title, and category sections in there. You might have to customize the CSS a little.

    I don’t think it’s too big of a deal, but you need to know your way around CSS a bit to do it. The two sections in “style.css” you’ll have to switch around are:

    #content, #home { }
    #sidebar { }

    WordPress Modder
    Thanks for mentioning that. It seems that I’ve got a depreciated tag in “page.php.” Instead of:

    link_pages()

    It should be:

    wp_link_pages()

    I’ll have to update that in the next version. I’ve always called these navigation links. As far as using them in “index.php” (note that this theme uses “home.php”), you really can’t do it. WordPress hasn’t seemed to have caught up with magazine-style themes yet. So, if you have a “previous/next” or “pages” links on your home page, Page 2 will look like your home page. It’s one of my gripes with WordPress right now. But, you should definitely change the code in “page.php.”

    When I created Visionary, I planned to have different content blocks that you could move around the page, like what you see in Structure, but couldn’t accomplish that with the layout of the theme. I also didn’t like the width of the sidebar. A lot of people had trouble understanding why their sidebar dropped down when they didn’t set their blog to display an odd number of posts. I also ended up creating a theme options page for this theme that allowed for easier customization.

    Those are the major problems I had with Visionary. Anyway, I’d love to see you use this theme.

    Nette
    Everything looks fine to me. The only way your sidebar should drop down is maybe if you put something too large in the content or sidebar sections. I’m not sure how it displays in older browsers, such as IE 5.5 and older.

    Bryan
    There are no plans to widgetize the tabs, unless the WordPress team fixes the widget page in the control panel. I find it frustrating moving things around when you have more than three widgetized areas on that page because the boxes are so long and the fourth box drops down below the others without a large screen area.

    Hello,

    I’ve been using your “Structure” theme on my site for over a month, and have been loving it! It’s refreshingly clean, yet manages to include all of the information I included in other much more cluttered themes – and the tabs in the sidebar are a fantastic idea!

    I do have 2 questions, though:

    1. In the tabs, it’s displaying the links with what seems to be an attribute of ‘display:block’ (non-linked text following a link gets a new line) – yet that isn’t in the CSS (that I saw). Suggestions?

    2. I added the login form you had in your “Newspaperize” theme’s sidebar into the “Structure” theme – and get a “ERROR: WordPress requires Cookies but your browser does not support them or they are blocked.” Am I missing something?

    Thank you!

    Reid
    Yes, you have to modify the CSS if you want to put links and non-links on the same line. The code display: block makes the links block-level elements, so they get their own lines.

    I’m not sure about the login form. You might need to check out the WordPress Codex or support forum for creating one. The Newspaperize theme hasn’t been updated in quite a while, so there could be problems with that code.

I wanted to create a new page for vizitors to contact me and there is not page template section on the right hand side of the dashbord, but using another theme the Page template section appeared. Is there a way to fix this issue. Thank you very much for giving that beautiful theme away for free, i guess everyone is using it.

    You don’t need to change the code at all in “recent.php” for smaller excerpts. You just create a Key named “Excerpt.” Give it a Value of whatever you want the small excerpt to look like.

    Yep, I remember you. If I never said so, thank you for that update.

    It’s hard to say exactly what might be causing your tabs not to work. You have quite a bit of stuff that’s loading on your page and this theme can be bit heavy (file size) too. Honestly, something you’ve added on or a plugin is probably conflicting with the jQuery in some way. There’s really nothing to do but deactivate everything that’s not a part of the theme. Then, reactivate everything one by one until you figure out what’s causing the conflict.

    Adam
    I’m glad you figured it out. I need to update the instructions file and show how to edit the tabs section.

    Fatos
    This is not an issue. There are no page templates for the Structure theme, so there should be no page template section in the dashboard. You may be a bit confused about what a Page is and what a Page Template is. You don’t need a page template to create a Page.

    I’ve been looking for ways to use WP as a CMS, to have multiple areas on my pages and your theme is great. I’m testing/learning on my local environment, so I don’t have a url to publish here. I’m using WP 2.3.2 and I have several categories and posts in the database to play with. I’m using Default option. I’ve been having a problem and perhaps you can’t point me in the right direction.

    I’ve got the category tabs turned on and I’ve named two of my categories to the list. The first category shows the latest two post excerpts. But the second category does not. The category tab is there, but no posts.

    Thank you.

    Justin,

    I have started tinkering with Structure 1.1.5.
    Have set it to default style home page.
    I have WP 2.3.3 installed.

    I have tried uncommenting some lines in the home.php
    and absolutely nothing happens. The widgets work.
    But I prefer to tinker with the code.

    Thanks for using the theme. I’d like to see the URL for this problem, but you’re running it locally. So, the only thing I can think of at the moment is to check and see if your category slug and category name are different. I’m not sure, but this could potentially cause problems. Also, try putting a third category up and see if it shows the latest two posts.

    Of course, this is all assuming that you have posts in those categories.

    Hi Justin,
    Where you have the two 125 x 125 ad blocks, would it be possible to add more below those?

    Also, in the far right side column, how difficult would it be to have two advertising towers (say 120 x 600) set up next to each other side by side? Could that be done? If so, how?

    Thank you kindly. I’m thinking of switching to your theme. It is amazing!

    Justin,

    Just looking through the full_posts.php code and noticed that Gravatar is being called, however, I’m not seeing the avatar when making the post. I have a Gravatar account and I have it working in the comment field, but would like to have the post author Gravatar image to show up for their name.

    I also looked in the gravatar.php code and noticed it is looking for a comment_author_email, this data would not be passed from the full_post.php…

    I’m a rookie and don’t have a good handle on this all yet, but I would like to commend you on a VERY NICE theme.

    Greetings Justin,
    I continue to be amazed at this theme. One thing I never counted on was how using it would improve my knowledge of “hacking.” It has really stretched me in the area of “mods.” Of course, there are still lots of things to figure out, which is half the fun. Then there are those “opportunities” I have no idea how to take advantage of, like the one I’m going to ask you about now.
    My homepage is really shaping up and looks great (In my opinion) in Firefox and a host of other web browsers. However, I found out, quite by accident, that I.E. renders it in a chaotic manner. I assume this is due to the changes I’ve made, since my other pages look fine and any changes to those pages were minimal.
    I don’t know what to do at this point, which is why I’m coming to you. I am alarmed that I will lose many first time visitors to my site due to this rendering problem in I.E. Any (and I mean ANY) suggestions are appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Make sure you don’t have any widgets in any of your widget boxes because they automatically override anything you do.

    kris
    You can add as many ads as you want into any one of the ad blocks. You could definitely add the two advertising towers in the sidebar though this theme’s not ideal for those type of ads. You might have to play around with the style rules a bit though. There’s a section labeled “Sidebar Ads” in “style.css” you might want to look at.

    Yes, it would be possible to add thumbnail pictures to the category tabs. Basically, you’d have to combine “recent.php” with “tabs-categories.php.” A good example I like is Kookjegek. They really put some work into their customization.

    April
    The file you need to edit is “main-nav.php.” You can delete the link to the example page from there.

    Chris
    Gravatar isn’t being called in “full-posts.php” nor is there a file called “gravatar.php.”

    Chad
    Honestly, I’m not sure what you did to make it look that screwed up in IE. I didn’t even bother looking at it in IE6 since it was so bad in 7. :)

    With so many modifications, I wouldn’t know where to start helping out. But, here are some tips:

    First, you need to start knocking out those XHTML errors. I suggest using the HTML Validator plugin for Firefox. You currently have 99 errors. The theme has none out of the box.

    The next thing you should do is clean out the sidebar. Remove everything that wasn’t originally in there. See what kind of effects that has.

    Max
    That’s a standard XHTML tag called a blockquote. It has nothing to do with themes.

    Mat
    This has nothing to do with the theme. Maybe you don’t have your permalinks set up correctly.

    Marco
    At the top of the “tabs.php” file, you need to change the list item “Popular” to whatever you want to name it. Scroll down to the section labeled “Popular” and delete everything between the <div> tags.

    <div class="t2">
    // Add your new code here
    </div>

    I’m not sure what code you want to put in there because you didn’t specify what you wanted to do with your special category.

    Wondering if it’s possible to make the custom block and home blocks left and right wider? I’ve changed the width in style.css to, for example:

    #home #home-bottom .block-left { float: left; width: 600px; }

    But that doesn’t change the width – it seems to stay at 300px no matter what. I don’t see any other things to change in the templates.
    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Of course, you could make them wider, but I see no point in making any of them 600px wide. It would break the layout by making any of them wider unless you made the entire layout wider. Here are all of the style rules you’d have to change the width on (I think this is all):

    #home #home-bottom { }
    #home #home-bottom .block-left { }
    #home #home-bottom .block-right { }
    .excerpts { }
    .excerpts .post { }
    .video { }
    .recent { }
    .menu { }
    .ads { }

    Of course, if you made these wider, you wouldn’t be able to use them in the sidebar.

    Chad
    No problem.

    Robyn
    Yep, you should definitely keep what you name your categories in mind, even if you’re not using this theme. Try to think of them as permanent.

    Justin – Duh! Hadn’t thought about the fact that I would no longer be able to use the expanded blocks in the sidebar. Which led me to think what I’m really trying to do is have multiple Feature blocks – so I can stack them on top of each other, under different category names. Or am I missing the boat on this, too.
    BTW, said it before and want to say it again: Terrific theme!

    Kahos, I had that trouble myself but figured it out with a page ID. When you create a page just look on the address bar and there somewhere at the end you have the id of that page. So what you do after that is just change the page id, <?php echo get_permalink (put that ID here)on that example that came with the theme and also change the name Example a little down from there where it says <?php _e(‘Example’) to (‘Contact’) or contact me or anything else. I think that would solve the problem.

    So next time you create a page or you want to link a post from Navigation just get the ID of the page or post, copy the example code and paste it after the last page or post and change the ID as well as the name (‘Example’) to the name of page or post you want to link to.

    You’ll probably want to recreate the “features.php” file if you want multiple stacks of features from different categories. You’d just need to change the query to get posts from a certain category instead of the features tag.

    Chris
    No problem. It happens.

    The blog description isn’t showing because it’s not a part of this theme. You can always add it by opening “header.php” and adding this line in the header:

    <h2><?php echo bloginfo('description'); ?></h2>

    Of course, you’d have to use CSS to style it to get it to show how you want.

    I don’t think it will overtax the database unless you get Digged or something. If that happens, you might want to get the WP Cache plugin.

    The query actually calls for the category name. One thing I’ve never tested but could possibly mess things up is if your category name and slug are different. For example, “My Faves” and “my-faves” are the same. I’m not sure if them being different would mess things up though. Are your category names and slugs different? Do you have a URL I can check out, or are you running your copy locally?

    Hi Justin, still happy with your theme after weeks … :-)

    Some smaller problems:
    - the blog description works with firefox, but not with IE Explorer. Which CSS-”Hack” is necessary?

    - Is it possible to change the positions of feature-article an category-tabs? It seems to be easy, but i don`t find the trick.

    - Your new plugin seems to work with Google Reader, but not with Bloglines and FeedBlitz. Although I made a custom field key “Feature Image” there is just a message “This image has no alt text”. Okay, this wasn`t set, but anyway: Feed-Readers should see the image. Any ideas? Do I have a logical problem?

    Hi Justin,

    I wonder if you can point me in the right direction. I am trying to make a page template that does not include the sidebar or the comments call. I have read Magneto’s comments above and your response to him that it would take some extensive coding to accomplish this. I think I’m on the right track, but I fear I just don’t have enough experience (yet) to work this out. Here’s what I’ve done…

    I created a new page template called no-comments-no-footer.php and have removed the call to the comments template…

    <!–

    –>

    I then created a copy of the footer.php page and named it footer_no_sidebar.php. In this file I removed the call to the footer by removing this code…

    ?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/sidebar.php’);

    I then went back to the no-comments-no-footer.php page template and changed the code on the bottom from this…

    get_footer();

    …to this…

    get_footer_no_sidebar();

    When I load the page I get this error…

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_footer_no_sidebar() in
    /home/content/a/w/a/myusername/html/wp-content/themes/
    structure/no-comments-no-footer.php on line 26

    Now, this tells me that maybe I need to create a function for “get_footer_no_sidebar”, but I’m stuck here.

    I’ve looked at the funtions.php page and do see reference to a register_sidebar function.

    Can you tell me if I’m even close? Is it possible for me to create another function for my “get_footer_no_sidebar” page?

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated from you or anyone here who can verify that this is even possible.

    You blog description is showing in IE. You just need to use some rules like this in your style sheet:

    #header h2 { }

    I’m not sure about why the plugin might not work. It’s working perfectly fine with the demo. It also has nothing to do with the feed reader.

    The plugin checks for the custom field Keys (in this order) “Video,” “Image,” “Feature Image,” and “Thumbnail.” So, make sure you have an image URL in the first custom field Key you use. So, if you have any Key using something that comes before “Feature Image,” then you need to have an appropriate URL as its Value.

    WordPress Modder
    This has been discussed and explained on this forum topic. Also, you should load additional templates like this:

    include(TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/template-name.php’);

    There is no function to include something that doesn’t exist.

    You’ll need to add a posts nav link, like this:

    <?php posts_nav_link(); ?>

    Of course, since this is a CMS-style theme, you’ll have to create a script and style rules to run your next page by using the is_paged() template tag. The best thing is to offer a link to your archives page.

    Bryan
    The category name needs to be the same as the slug name. Maybe there’s a bug with WordPress’ category parameters. The theme definitely calls for the category_name.

    This will work:

    Name: My Thoughts On Politics
    Slug: my-thoughts-on-politics

    This will not work:

    Name: My Thoughts On Politics
    Slug: politics
