Blog Page Looks Different Than Demo

Recommended Posts

Hi James,

 

I just installed the Academy theme onto a staging area of my website. My blog archive page doesn't look like the one in the demo. It lacks the author image and the metadata that shows to the left of the feature image for each blog entry.

 

By any chance would you happen to know why that is? http://ccsb.staging.wpengine.com/blog

 

Thanks James!

Hey Peter!

 

Thanks for the message.  There are two things that can work from what I understand:

 

1. If you haven't, make you click the import child theme config button on the import/export page in the options panel.  

2. If it still isn't showing up then or you don't want to do that, then make sure in your post loop settings you have set the author meta mode to avatar as you see in this screenshot (http://screencast.com/t/0oWsRx7YHDPa).

 

That's it!

 

Enjoy the theme and have fun building!

 

James.

That was it James, you're a genius! I made the change in your screenshot and everything works perfectly.

 

Great job by the way on the theme, it looks great.

 

I have another question but I'm not sure if you're able to answer it here or if I should open up a new topic. I added the Academy NavBar to the header of my website but I don't see an option to make it full width and sticky like in your demo.

 

Am I missing something?

 

Thanks James!

Hey Peter,

 

Sorry for the delayed response on this.  You should be able to see it on the global options panel.

Hey Peter,

 

Sorry again for the delay in responding, I was away speaking at a conference this past week/weekend.  Crazy times.  Anyway, to answer your question, you're not limited to 29px if you're using the theme.  The max-height is set to 4em's.

 

You've found the right options panel too!  And checking the 'fixed navbar' option is how you get it to stay on top of the page.

 

James.

      Hi James,
       
      I bought NavBanner section and I need the logo size to be larger that what is displaying (screen cap is attached).  I don't see anywhere to change the logo size parameters.
       
      I also need to edit the nav font size/color/bold.  Please help - thank you!
       
      :-)

      First of all, thanks for using the themes.  It's been great to design for you and to build out themes for DMS.  I wanted to fill you in on the plan moving forward for the themes I've created and the update path to DMS 2.
       
      Due to the fact that DMS 2 is an opt-in vs. opt-out update, I've decided to rest many of the themes I've created with DMS 1.x.  The systems available to us for managing multiple versions of the themes aren't as intuitive as I would like them to be and realistically, I think moving forward, the best option is to create new themes purpose built for DMS 2 rather than convert themes built for DMS 1.  There will, for a while, be people who are on DMS 1 and wanting to stay there, I'd like them to have a few options as well.
       
      I have however updated a couple of themes to be DMS 2 compliant with the eventual goal of making them core standalone themes as per the new format of theme development for DMS 2.  Here's the breakdown of what is updated, will be updated and will stay at 1.x.
       
      Staying At DMS 1.x
      Academy Theme
      Faithful Theme
      Details Theme
       
      Moving To DMS 2.0
      Corporation Theme
       
      DMS 2 Compliant
      Impressive Theme
      Workspace Theme
       
      I'd also like to add in new themes as I go so expect new ones to show up in the not too distant future as well.
       
      Thanks,
       
      James.

      Hi James,
      I have a problem- I can't get the Hero Nav to work in the Academy theme (or my Academy child theme).
      I figured out that the problem only happens when I activate the Academy or Academy child theme. The Hero Nav works when I activate the DMS theme.
      Can you let me know what I can do to get this resolved?
