  1. The “Continue reading” link to the end of the excerpts on the homepage are not showing. I went to Theme Options>Post Settings>Enter Post Excerpt More Text and entered “continue reading” in the field. It still shows as “…” instead.

    Also, I want to keep the colors of each category underlining different, but how can I make the title text and links uniform. I am finding some of the category colors like green are difficult to read.

    Thanks!

  3. Hi Richie, happy new year.
    I’m trying to get my multipages to show above star ratings / sharebuttons. Basically I want it to show directly beneath the post, but it’s not working out. I’ve even tried PHP shortcode programs without success. The code looks like this:
    http://jsfiddle.net/damian5000/UXLjS/
    It shows up at the bottom of other elements and I want it directly underneath the content so people are aware there are more pages.

  12. Hi Richie,

    How to edit font style / size and border for images with captions in posts. IMO the border way to thick and caption font size too big. I tried making changes in CSS, but there are like 10 blocks of css with ‘caption’ and ‘caption img’. I even looked with firebug at which CSS seems to be affecting this content, but none of my changes affected it. I’ve spent an hour on it already and just give up. Ask for your help. Don’t think I don’t try before I ask ;)

    • hi damian, try add this to custom css

      #custom .wp-caption {box-shadow: 0 0px 2px #fff;background-color: #fff;border: 1px solid #ddd;}
      #custom .wp-caption .wp-caption-text:before {content: '';}
      #custom .wp-caption .wp-caption-text {padding: 10px 0 5px 10px;font-size: 0.75em;}

      adjust the bg and color to your choice.

      • Okay. Got it. Part of the problem was I was putting the css inside @media for mobile. in custom area. :)

        Finally ended up with:
        #custom .wp-caption {box-shadow: 0 0px 2px #999;background-color: #eee;border: 1px solid #ddd;padding: 9px 4px 0 4px;}

        #custom .wp-caption .wp-caption-text {padding: 3px 3px 0px 3px;font-size: 0.75em;}

        It’s interesting, to get the same border width on top as the sides, I need to make padding for top more than double the sides. Any idea why? I’m just curious.

    1 – Is something supposed to show after featured categories? For me, it just ends after the selected featured categories finish.

    2 – I’m trying to get adsense to show above the footer credits by placing the code in index.php. Have tried several areas towards the bottom, but it always ends up right over the footer.

  26. Hello, Richie,

    I have a problem with the Header Banner. “468×60 or 728×90 Header Banner and Advertisment Embed Code”.
    I want to add a responsive addsense adverstiment to the header, so that it can be displayed correctly with about 300px width phones. The problem is that the responsive adverstiment is not shown in the header, but in the “first post loop” ans “second post loop”. If I add an other fixed width adverstiment before the header adverstiment, it is shown, but with a disproportionate height.
    Any idea of how to solve it? The adverstiment is correctly shown with a fixed width.

    Thanks in advance. Very good theme!

It’s not only about how Facebook sees them, I’m concerned with how search engines may be seeing them as well.

    Public CommentUserFacebook is pulling the incorrect info from the posts. Not sure if this is a meta tag issue with your theme or not. Here are 2 images. One from the previous theme, and one from your theme. You can see with your theme it's all bumbled. I've tried multiple times with different posts and the result is the same. It's not only about how Facebook sees them, I'm concerned with how search engines may be seeing them as well.

    • The Facebook linking can be solved by specifying OpenGraph metadata for your posts. You can check before and after output results by entering the permalink for a post from your website here: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug I use a plugin from the WordPress Plugin Directory called ‘WP Facebook Open Graph protocol’.

      There shouldn’t be an issue with search engines as they’ll spider the whole post. There are checking services on the web such as http://www.webconfs.com/search-engine-spider-simulator.php and Google Analytics/Webmaster Tools are useful too.

      • The previous theme showed them perfectly stock. I had no extra plugins or graph data defined. Maybe it was built into the theme? But it was an older theme, so I’d be surprised if this is the case. Just to clarify, I’m talking about posting them manually into the Facebook feed, not auto-posting via the blog.

        • Hi Richie,

          Ended up partially solving this by adding to functions.php


          <meta property="og:url" content=""/>
          <meta property="og:title" content="" />
          <meta property="og:description" content="ID)); ?>" />

          <meta property="og:image" content="ID)); }?>" />

          <meta property="og:site_name" content="" />
          <meta property="og:description" content="" />

          However, the og:image is not pulling properly. ***Richie, can you give a replacement line here to pull the medium image

          Also, this can be solved with Social Jet as suggested by Jules, but am really trying to cut down on plugin use if at all possible.

          Public CommentUserHi Richie, Ended up partially solving this by adding to functions.php <code> <!-- the default values --> <!-- if page is content page --> <meta property="og:url" content=""/> <meta property="og:title" content="" /> <meta property="og:description" content="ID)); ?>" /> <meta property="og:image" content="ID)); }?>" /> <!-- if page is others --> <meta property="og:site_name" content="" /> <meta property="og:description" content="" /> </code> However, the og:image is not pulling properly. ***Richie, can you give a replacement line here to pull the medium image Also, this can be solved with Social Jet as suggested by Jules, but am really trying to cut down on plugin use if at all possible.

            Facebook giving error for that meta. On the link above it gives some function.php recommendation to get around it, but it broke the site.

            Where to place that code? I’ve tried all different combinations. Have tried both lines in header. Have tried Both lines in functions.

            Have line 1 in functions and line 2 in header.

            Facebook still returning “Object at URL of type ‘article’ is invalid because a required property ‘og:image:url’ of type ‘url’ was not provided.”

            All the other meta properties defined in header are returning fine.

          • try download an earlier version of mesocolumn, version 1.0, check lib/functions/theme-functions.php line 14
            you should get the idea on how to add opengraph via functions.
            this had been removed in later version to pass wp theme submit rule.
            eventually its easier to use social jet and turn on fb opengraph only, it didn’t use much resources.

  37. Hi Richie,

    I’ve been trying to get one issue solved at a time, but I can’t wait any longer and need to start posting the other issues.

    The feed length is way too long. The default I thought was 55 words, but the feed with this theme is showing hundreds of words. Is there a setting within the theme that’s defining this?

      • Okay. I will give this a go.

        Possible to check for a solution to the query issue as well? I still don’t know if this is normal for your theme. Is your installation pulling queries for every category and slug? 200 out of the 300 queries are seemingly unnecessary.

        In backend, I have 500 queries per every page load. 450 of them coming from the theme.

        • Hi Richie,
          I know I’m probably making you crazy by now, but we should figure this out.

          I just tested with previous theme. In backend there are 39 queries. With your theme – 526 queries. I’ve also attached the query data for your theme.

          Previous theme:

          • yeap, the category-color and page-color.php is loaded in admin backend. try open lib/functions/options-functions.php and edit line 528 to this

            }

            see i added the $get page condition, they should have loaded in theme option page only.

            can’t do anything on frontend tho since they need to load for the category color to work.

      • This reduced queries in backend down to about 160. Not as much as eliminating functions all together, but a big difference. Thanks.

        In regards to frontend, it’s strange it pulls them for all instead of just what’s used in menus, but I don’t know enough about it.

        I don’t use multicolor anyways. Only one color.
        *** What about if we only use one color on frontend, or in your opinion are the 300 queries not a big deal in regards to server load and site speed (mainly server load is my concern. I’m spike maxing resources frequently through the day.)

          Do you know of another .php that has these lines at 970 or so? I’ve totally confused myself. So strange.

          Regardless, the issues as posted above with the Ajax php errors remain.

    I have checked my queries and they’re coming in at a whopping 300-320. I disabled 100% of my plugins and the queries are still coming in at around 270-290, so the huge majority are seemingly from the theme. I run very few widgets.

    • Hello Richie,

      I’ve installed Query Monitor. It says the huge majority of them are coming from the theme (250 out of 300 approx).

      Of those 250, 200 of them are get_term_by()

      The query looks something like this
      SELECT t.*, tt.*
      FROM az_terms AS t
      INNER JOIN az_term_taxonomy AS tt
      ON t.term_id = tt.term_id
      WHERE tt.taxonomy = 'category'
      AND t.name = 'Hero Review'
      LIMIT 1

      I guess my question… Is this normal?

      • depend, are you using featured category for homepage. let’s say 1 post had 5 query, with featured category, it had around 5x10posts=50 query per feat cat, if you had 6 featured category choosen, it had around 300 query so to say.
        i’ve already tried to minimized the query load as minimal as possbile. shouldn’t slow down the site, is it?

        get_term_by() mostly related to the wp_nav_menu() or the the_category() call, try comment out this code and do a compare test.

        • I’m not using any slider or featured category.

          This shows 300+ on single posts as well as homepage.

          It takes about 1 second to complete all queries. My server / CPU load is topping out frequently. Not sure if this has anything to do with it or not.

          I’m just trying to get rid of it if it’s unnecessary. Every bit helps.

          This example query I gave you ‘hero review’ had absolutely nothing to do with the post nor is it part of the nav menu (though it is a category).

          • ok try open header.php and comment in line 69 and 137 like this
            //wp_nav_menu(…code…);
            then open single.php and comment in the //get_sidebar()
            and test it again in single post query, see if the number of query get down.
            again do a compare test on each comment in code one by code and check which produce the query more.

          • Hello Richie,

            Disabling nav and sidebar only reduced it by 20-30 queries.

            It looks like for some reason, the theme is pulling every single category and it’s slug. But I have no idea what it could be. Here is a copy of the queries with nav and sidebar off.

            Look at around item 45 down, you can see it’s pulling every category and slug.

          • i think its related to the theme category color features which run in header init. try open functions.php edit line 143
            //get_template_part ( ‘/lib/options/options-css’ );

        • No, this still didn’t do it. What else could possibly be pulling every category and slug? It’s a little bit odd.

          Is your installation doing the same thing?

  45. Hi Richie,

    For related posts images – I want to reduce the image displayed because it’s too large for my tastes, and want to change the base image it draws from because it’s very blurry.

    I’ve played around a bit, but can’t manage to get it done. Thanks for any tips.

    • you can change the ‘thumbnail’ use to ‘medium’ by open lib/templates/related.php and edit

      echo dez_get_featured_post_image($thepostlink, "</a>", 250, 250, "aligncenter", "thumbnail" ,dez_get_singular_cat('false'), the_title_attribute('echo=0'), false);

      change the ‘thumbnail’ to ‘medium’

      add this to custom css to change the size to 4 column related instead

      #custom #post-related .feat-cat-meta {width: 23%;height: 150px;}

  46. Hi Richie,

    I can’t for the life of me get some css button code to be implemented in single.php. I’ve added the code to style.css. However, it refuses to be implemented.

    The subscribe2 is showing, but the css isn’t implemented (surrounded inside button box). This css worked fine on my previous theme.

    Any ideas?

      I figured it out. I needed to add it to custom css. For some reason it wasn’t being implemented when added directly to style.css.

  48. Hello, thank you for the great theme! I am having one problem that I was hoping you could shed light on.

    When someone leaves a comment to a post, the text is small. If someone replies to that comment, the next comment is even smaller. It continues to get smaller with each reply.

    What should I look for to fix this?

    Thanks!

      • Also, it appears to only be happening on the buddypress “activity feed” pages, not on regular blog posts.

        Public CommentUserAlso, it appears to only be happening on the buddypress "activity feed" pages, not on regular blog posts.
        • I apologize for dropping more comments, but I figured you’d like to have all the info possible on this. Here are the facts:

          1. The font size in comments on the buddypress activity feed gets smaller with each reply.

          2. The font size on the regular blog posts is good.

          3. Switching themes fixes the problem. Other themes show the same font sizes in the comments whether it’s a blog post comment or an activity feed comment.

          Hope this helps, not only for my problem but future users of your great theme as well!

          • try add this to theme option->custom css

            #buddypress div.activity-comments {font-size: 1.2em;}
            #buddypress div.activity-comments div.acomment-content,#buddypress div.activity-comments div.acomment-meta { font-size:100%; }

          • Richie, good job! That makes the fonts bigger, and I can adjust the size. Each reply still gets smaller, though. I wish I could understand why it gets smaller with every reply and set it to stay the same.

            You are a genius, just in case no one ever told you that. Thank you!

  49. Hi Richie,

    Is there any way to set a header without using wordpress to upload? The issue I’m running into is if I set it without cropping it just turns it into a thin line. And if I crop, I can’t get the perfect height to width ratio and the image ends up blurred.

    Ideally, what I want is to make a 1920×145 and have it fixed so that the theme expands out over it depending on user’s resolution. But the wordpress upload header scheme is making it impossible. Can I just upload the header via FTP and have the theme use it without going through wordpress header upload?

    • i would suggest edit the header before upload, when upload, just skip the crop and then publish the image header as is.

      • That is the problem. If I don’t crop, it just ends up as a thin sliver. I spent 2 hours trying to crop to get it the right height because not cropping just makes it into a 5 pixel thin line even though it was 1440×145.

        • maybe edit the functions.php line 49
          ‘width’ => 1440,
          to
          ‘width’ => 1920,
