    That is not up to the theme.

    The content (pages/posts and everything you type in) is controlled, processed and outputted by WordPress.

    I don’t see a menu on your website. Which one is the troublesome page?

    Use the built in “Custom Javascript” field in Appearance > Mantra Settings, under Miscellaneous.

    Or if circumstances require advanced scripting, edit the theme files (but I highly recommend using a child theme for this).

    Mantra was not created with dark backgrounds in mind, it doesn’t have built-in options for changing absolutely all colours and we never got around to adding such options.

    But it CAN be completely customized with custom CSS.  You just need to use a developer tool like Firebug to inspect the content of the website and figure out which areas you need to change colours to.

    Or tell us a bit more clearly (with page name and area content/description) what you are trying to change.

    in reply to: Magazine style max. 7 articles possible? #3866
    Zed
    Cryout Creations mastermind

    The number of posts displayed by any category page (including when using magazine layout) is the number configured in Settings > Reading under “Blog pages show at most _ posts”

    If these articles occupy less space than your sidebar(s) content, you’ll get empty space underneath.

    Try exporting Mantra’s settings on the old site and importing them on the new site (after a settings reset).

    I have migrated several WordPress installations with Mantra active and configured and never encountered this issue.

    My French is quite rusty… 🙂

    Do you want to display “news” posts on the standard “blog pots” homepage or in Mantra’s “presentation page”?

    in reply to: Move JS in the footer // Adapt functions.php #3774
    Zed
    Cryout Creations mastermind

    You should put all your code into the child theme’s functions.php file.

    Note that (as I have found out the hard way) not all actions are removed properly by just using remove_action(). Also, note that Mantra has more hook functions than the ones listed in your sample code.

    The safest way is to use a wrapper function:

    function remove_mantra_functions() {
    remove_action(...);
    // insert all your remove_action calls here
    }
    add_action('init','remove_mantra_functions');

    then use add_action() to attach your child theme function replacements.

    Inserting custom code in the presentation page implies programming knowledge.

    Adding somewhat of a sidebar on the presentation page is even more complicated.

    Use this custom CSS:

    .column-image { border: 3px solid #000; }

    The presentation page looks awesome with black borders 🙂

    Cryout Creations mastermind

    Chrome is broken on my Android device, but the fonts in Mantra work just fine with the built-in browser (an unbranded trimmed down version of Chrome).

    I see you’ve changed your site setting and no longer using a Google font, so I can’t test your website as well.

    But as a general rule, make sure the piece of text in question is not copied from somewhere and has a <font….> tag along with it.

    in reply to: mantra settings page disappeared?? #3744
    Zed
    Cryout Creations mastermind

    That should not happen 🙂

    Try these steps one by one:

    • switch to another theme and then switch back.
    • disable all installed plugins
    • re-upload the theme files (through FTP); this will leave your settings intact (if you uninstall it and then reinstall it through WP you will lose all settings)

    in reply to: Additional option for the selection of the article picture #3740
    Zed
    Cryout Creations mastermind

    First off, the “Post Excerpts on Home / Archive and Category Pages” need to be set to “Excerpt” and the “Featured Images as POST Thumbnails” and “Auto Select Images From Posts” options need to be enabled.

    Then this is how the theme behaves:

    • on a post with featured image but no images inside, the featured image will be displayed
    • on a post with featured image and more images inside, the feature image will be displayed
    • on a post without featured image but with images inside, the first image from the content will be displayed
    • on a post without featured image and no images inside, no image will be displayed

    This way you have automatic post images (when you have images inside the post), which you can also override as you wish through the “featured image”.

    So  I do not believe that this behaviour needs any change.

    I think I already answered this through email…

    That is not Mantra. It’s either a plugin you are using, your host passing adds through your website or a program on your computer intercepting sites you are seeing and inserting adds in them.

    in reply to: Color settings has stopped working #3674
    Zed
    Cryout Creations mastermind

    Not likely, but you could have installed/enabled a plugin that messes with the javascript functions used by Mantra.

    Disable newly installed/enabled plugins and see if the issue goes away. Then tell us the plugin in question so we can check it out and work out a proper solution.

    I see a different behaviour on our test site: the posts pictures display just fine, but the Digg Digg floating area fails to display on category pages displaying posts with pictures.

    We’ll look into this…

    I used featured images for posts on my blog as well, and I did not encounter this issue after updating.

    Did you test to see if this happens when all plugins are disabled? Could be an incompatibility between a plugin and the theme.

    If you remove those lines, of course the whole site is going be messed up. Those two lines output about half of the site’s HTML code (including the <head> and header sections).

    I don’t know anything about Facebook’s OpenGraph, but I’ll document myself and see if I can come up with an answer.

    The uploader automatically detects the configured site width and configured header height and crops the uploaded header image to that size.

    Check your configured options and see if they are correct.

    While I can see the issue on your site, I cannot reproduce it on our test installs.

    Could you create a support ticket and send us an export of your theme settings? Perhaps a combination of options triggers the problem. (just type anything in the transaction id field).

    Depends on what you’re seeing when you enable debugging.

    If it’s just debug information and notices, things should still work.

    If you’re getting warning or even errors, that’s bad…
