    at first thank you for that awesome theme!

    after playing a bit with, I got some questions.

    1. How to exclude Categories from the Blog Template “Post List” I found in the theme Options/Content Section. I excluded two Categories. I want these include on 2 different Pages “Bus” and “Homebase”. That works too. But I set a password for that 2 pages, ’cause I want these only for friends and family. But the Password don’t work.

    2. I use the nextgallery Plugin. I want to use the lightbox2 function. How I can realize this? I need a step by step for dummies. 😉
    2a. I use a standard template for the galleries. Is it possible to activate the comment function on this page?

    3. How I can change the redirect URL from http:/// to another one?

    4. Is it possible to use a themed login page? When yes, how can I realize that?

    5. I need to edit the showing content before the “read more” button ’cause I need more words to show. What must I change?

    Greetings and sorry for that creepy english.

    Hello,

    I’ll do my best to address all of your questions.

    1. How to exclude Categories from the Blog Template “Post List” I found in the theme Options/Content Section. I excluded two Categories. I want these include on 2 different Pages “Bus” and “Homebase”. That works too. But I set a password for that 2 pages, ’cause I want these only for friends and family. But the Password don’t work.

    If I’m understanding you correctly, you’re saying you want the page with a Post List page template to be set to private. Unfortunately, the theme will not allow you to do this.

    2. I use the nextgallery Plugin. I want to use the lightbox2 function. How I can realize this? I need a step by step for dummies.

    I’d suggest contacting the people that make this plugin. I don’t have the knowledge to guide you through how to work with their plugin.

    2a. I use a standard template for the galleries. Is it possible to activate the comment function on this page?

    Apologies, but this theme does not support comments for pages, only posts.

    3. How I can change the redirect URL from http:/// to another one?

    This wouldn’t have anything to do with the theme. You’ll need to do a little bit of research on how to setup WordPress and your website to work with your SSL certificate and https. Contacting your webhost may be helpful, as well.

    4. Is it possible to use a themed login page? When yes, how can I realize that?

    There is nothing in the theme for this. If you search over on wordpress.org, there are some plugins out there that can help you with theming your login page and admin panel.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=admin+theme

    5. I need to edit the showing content before the “read more” button ’cause I need more words to show. What must I change?

    In WordPress, this is called the “Excerpt”. WordPress will automatically take the first 55 words from your post. You can override this by writing in your own excerpt when editing a post under the box titled “Excerpt” — If you do not see this when editing your post, it means you have it hidden. Go to the “Screen Options” tab at the top right corner of the screen, and select for this to show.

    to 1. yes you understood me correctly. thanks for the info. Maybe is it possible to integrate this in future updates?

    to 2. lightbox2 is not integrated in the plugin. I need to download this and put it somewhere in the theme. I use the child theme. But I don’t know where I must insert the code. Here is a link scroll down , I must insert this code somewhere in the header?!

    to 2a. k. not a “musthave” but a “nicetohave” 😉 I think I can realize this with a portfolio tremplate page with posts grids and exluded cats from the Blog template for each gallery album.

    to 3. is clear. I checked the documentation. I had just add a url to the page content.

    to 4. okay. I will take a look. it’s also a “nicetohave”

    to 5. hum it can be so easy sometimes.

    thank you Jason for that awesome theme again. You made a powerful and very user friendly theme!! That is what I was looking for sooooo long. I love rounded corners since my first project in 2005. I love dark styled layout and hell yeah I like the HTML5 support.

    how I can add some code?

    I want to add . I tried to add this in the functions.php in the child theme. But after that my site goes blank white.

    Yes, any custom PHP code you want to add would go in your Child theme’s functions.php file. If you get a white screen afterwards, it means your code isn’t correct and you’re getting a fatal error because of it.

    to 2. lightbox2 is not integrated in the plugin. I need to download this and put it somewhere in the theme. I use the child theme. But I don’t know where I must insert the code. Here is a link scroll down , I must insert this code somewhere in the header?!

    And in your functions.php is also where you’d include any scripts or CSS files. —

    Hey

    you dont need to customize the theme for me. I will do it by myself. But the structure of your theme is completely different as the older ones I used. 😉

    Well on this site bustallmajors.com/ are only described that I must insert just one line code only s o m e w h e r e in my Sourcecode. But when I add this in the child functions.php I get the blank white page. I don’t get it… sorry.

    Thanks for the Lightbox2 Infos. But my English and Programming Skills are not good enough to understand this infos completely. I got a install manual, see link above. But that one don’t work with your theme structure.

    I think I will ask ejb5oh

    it lookslike he uses nextgen gallery and lightbox2 with Alyeska on his site..

    I got another question.

    I use the classic magazine#2 layout for my pages e.g. sputniq.net/politik. But in the Post Grid are only the featured pics are show. No Headline, no excerpt text, no “read more” link like on your demo site.

    Have I edit something?

    Go to Appearance > Theme Options > Content > Post Grids and select to show the items. These should all be set to show by default, so most likely you’ve accidentally turned these off at some point when going through the theme options.

    hey Jason,

    another 2 Questions..

    I exclude the cat “bus”, “homebase” and “Politik” from the Blog Page via the backend theme options panel. But some Posts got 2 Cat like “Blog” and “Politik”. I want these posts are showing on the Blog Page too. How can I realize this?

    Another Issue(?) is when I type sputniq.net in the browser, the Slides are not loading. Only the loading circle is running and running… But when I press F5 for reload, the Slider load perfectly.

    I apologize, but this option will not allow you to do this. You’ll need to re-structure your category structure for this to work properly.

    All working fine over here when I go to your website. I would say that the first time you did it your website just had to load for the first time. Then, your website was cached in your web browser, and so clicking refresh, it came up faster.

    Note: The slider only fades in after the entire website has been loaded.

    Hey Jason,

    I need a header.php in my child theme for some codes snippets like rich snippets e.g. between <head< and

    You’d just copy header.php from the Parent theme to the Child theme to edit it. All of your theme files are located here on your server where you have WordPress installed: /wp-content/themes/

    Although, when adding stuff to your <head>, it’s better to hook the content to “wp_head” from your Child theme’s functions.php, opposed to editing header.php.

    Hi Jason,

    now I read much about action hooks and functions. I tried much different, for me it is a try and error method. I’m a beginner and after some Fails I don’t get it. My Edits are not working. I always get a blank page. :/

    I really want to understand it ’cause the copy method is “quick and dirty”. So can you tell me the code snippet to add my content e.g.

    <div itemscope="" itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Person">Mein Name ist <span itemprop="name">Svenson Higher</span></div>
    aber die meisten Leute nennen mich <span itemprop="nickname">TaloX</span>.
    Hier ist meine Website:
    <a itemprop="url" href="http://www.example.com">www.example.com</a>
    Ich lebe in Bremen und arbeite als <span itemprop="title">Webmaster</span>
    bei <span itemprop="affiliation">sputniq.net</span>.

    between the <head> tag at my child theme in functions.php please?

    Hey Jason,

    after som Try and Errors. I got this

    /**
     * Hooks into the `wp_head` action.
     * @link http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference/wp_head
     */
    add_action('wp_head', 'my_content_1');
    function my_content_1(){
         ?>
    	<a href="https://plus.google.com/115821315279231447798" rel="me" />
        <?php
    }

    But now the link is show in the social Icons @ at the amazon one.

    Or here at this one the microdata is show in frontend. But this I don’t want, cause it
    is for seo.

    add_action('wp_head', 'my_content_1');
    function my_content_1(){
        ?>
    
         <div itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Person">
    	  Mein Name ist <span itemprop="name">Svenson Higher</span>
    	
    	  aber die meisten Leute nennen mich <span itemprop="nickname">Svenson</span>.
    	
    	  Hier ist meine Website:
    	  <a href="http://sputniq.net" itemprop="url">http://sputniq.net</a>
    	
    	  Ich lebe in Bremen und arbeite als <span itemprop="title">Webmaster</span>
    	
    	  bei <span itemprop="affiliation">sputniq.net</span>.
    	</div>
    
        <?php 
    }
