Need help with Massive News theme (7 posts)

    I'm working on the design for a new site, and I want to use the Massive News theme. I'm running into some odd problems that have me stumped (and I'm very new at this).

    I'm working on the design offline using xampplite, if that matters. Anyway, here are my specific problems:

    1). On the front page, instead of an image with each post, it is showing a chunk of text from the beginning of the post in place of the image. Very weird.

    2). On the individual post pages, I can't get the image to be properly left aligned. The text starts below the image (leaving a huge chunk of white space next to the image) no matter what I do.

    3). I would like to make the rotation time on the "features" slideshow go a bit more slowly, but I can't figure out how to make each article stay up there a few seconds longer.

    4). Not sure how to use the sideblog section or what to do with it.

    I can't offer a link to the blog I', designing, since it's offline, but here's the Massive News demo: http://www.wpelements.com/demos/massivenews/

    And here's the download link to the theme itself: http://www.wpelements.com/downloads/themes/MassiveNews.zip

    Thank you so much for any help!

    Hi Zeppelined,

    I'm having the exact same problems. Have you had any success?

    I've found that images can be inserted in the "Excerpt" area underneath where you author a post, in this format <img src="http://yourimage.jpg">

    The instructions for the plugin is located here - http://www.revolutiontwo.com/plugins/featured-content-gallery.htm

    Follow those instructions and you should be okay. They are pretty simple and worked great for me.

    Does anyone have the original file massivenews.zip for the Massive News wordpress theme? The site isn’t there anymore, but I really want that theme! It’s PERFECT for my uses. If so, if anyone would be so kind to e-mail it to ridiculove@gmail.com I would gladly refer your blog/site to friends in exchange!
