    Hi,

    When i post a new beer with this plugin, the side bar on my blog is displayed below the beer post, this plugin doesn´t allow the side bar to appear on the right / left side like it should, is it possible to fix it?

    Hi rodonmanes,

    EM Beer Manager loads in default theme files, which are located under wp-content/plugins/em-beer-manager/templates. You can edit these files to match your own theme templates (i.e. add the proper div structure, classes, sidebars, etc.). Changes you make won't get overridden during an update.

    Thanks!

    Hi Erin,

    Thanks for the reply :)

    If i knew PHP, CSS and all that, i would probably be helping you with the EM beer manager or making my own changes to it at least, not being the pest i am when i encounter problems (or have ideas) and bother the developers :-p

    I´ve tried to learn PHP and CSS, but i don´t get it, always something new that throws me of, so it´s either school or someone to help me learn it, but that won´t happen for the next 10 years for various reasons, or maybe, not at all... :-/

    Hi rodonmanes,

    Could you paste the code from your page template file into pastebin for me or a share a link to where you're using the plugin on your site? I can take a look and send you an updated template format.

    Hi rodonmanes,

    Try using this code to replace the "single-embm_beer.php" file in the EM Beer Manager template file:

    <?php
    /*
    *
    * EM Beer Manager single beer page template
    *
    */
    
    get_header(); ?>
    
    	<div class="clear"></div>
    	<div class="inner-page ">
    
    	<div class="content-wrapper">
    		<div class="content-wrapper-inner">
    			<div class="mid-wrap  left out-threequarter  ">
                	<div id="content" class="embm-content-single">  
    
    		<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    
    			<?php echo embm_display_beer($post->ID); ?>
    
    		<?php endwhile; // end of the loop. ?>
    
                	</div>
    			</div>
    		</div>
    	</div><!-- #content -->
    
    	<div class="clear"></div>
    
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    I can't say that it will 100% work without seeing your actual PHP template files, but this was my best guess from looking at your site. Let me know if it fixes your problems.

    Thanks!

    Hi rodonmanes,

    I just pushed out a new version (1.8.0) of EM Beer Manager. It should fix your template and sidebar problems as it completely removes the physical template files and works within your theme. So if you update, you can ignore what I've written above - let me know if it works for you.

    Hi Erin,

    Sorry for how late i reply, been so busy with my websites.

    I just have to compliment you for great work! You are quickly becoming my most favorite plugin builder! :) Quick support, very quick updates and open to ideas, which makes you the best plugin maker i´ve ever seen here on WordPress, and believe me, i´ve had to deal with allot of plugin developers, very closed and very limited support, it´s obvious you love what you do :)

    This update did the trick, i´m so happy to see this work, i´m working now on importing all the beer articles into the EM Beer manager.

    If you´re in Iceland, let me know, i´ll introduce you to our fantastic beer selection, we have at least 3 world champions (and allot of silver and bronce beers) beers here in Iceland, which is very good, considering there are only about 50 beer brands :-p I am hosting a beer festival in September if you want to have a look at Icelandic beer, and i´ll most likely be advertising the new look and this plugin there :)

    Hi rodonmanes,

    Glad to hear the updated fixed your problems! I'm going to mark this thread as resolved.

    That beer festival sounds awesome! If I ever made it over to Iceland (which I hope to one day) I'll definitely have to check out the beers - the sounds great!

    P.S. if you have the time, I'd love it if you could write a quick a review of the plugin since no one's done that yet - and thanks again for all of your suggestions it's really helped me improve things :)

    Tiny little issue. I'm working on a clean install of WordPress, I'm using the widget in my side bar. I looks fine on pages, but when you click on the beers in the side widget, it doesn't come out too neatly. See here: http://fruitofthebine.com/beer/
