Category Archive With Thumbnails and Excerpt? (9 posts)

    Hi,

    Raindrops is the best looking and most versatile free theme I can find, well done! But, I'm new to WordPress, so sorry about my dumb questions -

    1) Is it possible to create category archives with thumbnails of the featured image and excerpts? (like this: http://gametwonk.com/category/pc-game-reviews/)

    2) Is it possible to place a link to home page within a custom header image?

    3) How do I place a slider underneath the header that will show recent posts? (at top of main body)

    4) How do I place recent post thumbnails within the main body? - (hopefully underneath the above slider)

    Below is a diagram of what I am hoping to have:

    Many thanks for any help

    I copied the link to category view I need incorrectly - here is the correct link:

    http://gametwonk.com/category/pc-game-reviews/

    (this is my current theme)

    Hi twonk

    How to change the category layout
    see:
    https://gist.github.com/tenman/4712070

    if you need excerpt for category page then add <?php the_excerpt();?> function.

    Add to link for custom header.
    add below php script functions.php

    <?php
    add_filter( 'raindrops_header_image_elements', 'my_add_home_link' );
    
    function my_add_home_link( $content ){
    	$html = '<a href="%1$s">%2$s</a>';
    	return sprintf( $html,
    					home_url(),
    					$content
    					);
    }
    ?>

    Add Slider

    Raindrops has Sticky widget area you can use something plugin widget.

    Page layout 2column

    Please open theme options page or Theme customizer.

    Set extra sidebar hide.
    Set right 240px default sidebar

    Thank you.

    Hi Nobita,

    Please can you tell me how to remove the featured image thumbnail from the home page posts (next to title)?

    Also, I cannot get the header image home page link to work - I created a functions.php file including the script you wrote above and added it to the child theme but it does not work. Did I do it correctly?

    Also, Is it possible to remove the white line at the bottom of the pages?

    Please can you tell me how to remove the featured image thumbnail from the home page posts (next to title)?

    see: gist

    Step3: Add the style rules style.css
    Add to style.css last line.
    
    .index.category-archives .h2-thumb{
      display:none;
    }

    I cannot get the header image home page link to work - I created a functions.php file including the script you wrote above and added it to the child theme but it does not work. Did I do it correctly?

    I check the script parent theme and child theme.
    both no ploblem , no errors.

    Child theme is good way.

    Very ugly big white line

    Please open reset-fonts-grids.css line:41

    html {
    color: #000;
    background: #FFF;
    }

    change below

    html {
    color: #000;
    /*background: #FFF;*/
    }

    Above rules not tested

    Hi twonk

    Your Very ugly big white line setting is wrong

    html{
    color:#000;background:#FFF;*/
    }

    change below

    html{
    color:#000;/*background:#FFF;*/
    }

    This issue will be fixed next versions Raindrops.

    Thank you.
