[resolved] [closed] Oxygen Theme questions (42 posts)

    Hi there!

    I love the Oxygen theme but I haven't quite figured it out yet.
    There are 3 things:

    1. I can't seem to get the black navigation menu (left sidebar) to appear
    2. I can't seem to get the blue navigation menu (header) to appear
    3. What should I do to get posts under "recent articles" and "more articles"?

    I've made a menu of pages and put the menu widget in the "primary widget area" and there does appear a menu, but not the black box one.

    What to do, what to do?

    My site:
    http://www.stichtingstaal.nl

    Example of how i'd like it to be:

    i have the same theme. you will have to go to the widgets section, and where it says "primary" you will have to drag the "categories" tab... and for the menu widget you will have to simply add the "pages" you want....

    but i have a question... how do you get the picture slider to appear? i can't seem to do that

    Hello Stichtingstaal,

    1) A) To set up the Blue Menus head to:
    Appearance > Menus
    B) Click The plus (if you hover over it, it will say "Add Menu"), give it a name and press "Save".

    C) To the left of that should be some smaller boxes, find the one labelled "Pages", click "View All and select "Home" (You can add more later) and then "Add To Menu". It should appear on the right, click "Save Menu".

    D) Then go to the "Theme Locations" box and under "Primary" select your menu" and press save.

    E) If you go to your WordPress site "home" should appear =]

    2) A) To set up the Black Menus head to:
    Appearance > Menus
    B) Click the plus again, give it a name and press "Save"

    C) To the left of that should be some smaller boxes, find the one labelled "categories", click "View All and select "Uncategorized" and then "Add To Menu". It should appear on the right, click "Save Menu".

    D) Then go to the "Theme Locations" box and under "Secondary" select your second menu and press save.

    E) If you go to your WordPress site it should appear =]

    (Note: For both of these, as you add new pages and categories, you can add these to your menus by ticking them and selecting "add to menu", but dont forget to click "save menu" after editing them.)

    Hope this helps =]

    Whoops missed 3. (3. What should I do to get posts under "recent articles" and "more articles"?)

    Well to do this when you create a new post, there are several options in the box "Location". Each of these send the post to different places, "Featured" puts it in the slide show.
    "Primary" puts it in the Recent articles
    and "Secondary" puts it in the more articles.

    Unfortunately this theme requires you to update everything manually so when you different posts in "recent" and "more" you have to change them all.

    Hope this helps =]

    Thanks for the information, I've got another question.

    How can I create a 'home' page, I mean, how can I have an static image in the very center of the home, so that it seems to be a website.

    Sorry for my English... : )

    Hello
    I had almost same question as stichtingstaal.
    And I tried the solution as gsarcasm wrote.

    But I still can not solve about "recent articles" and "more articles" part.
    I checked the Primary or Secondary on each articles but my new post does not come to the "recent articles" or "more articles".

    Thanks !

    This might help:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/pages-along-top-not-sidebar?replies=9#post-2841732

    This helped me fix both the top "bar-style" page menu, and the slider feature. It will also tell you how to place the other featured articles.

    Too bad devpress doesn't have better (FREE!) support, but the WP community seems to be happy to help one another.

    good luck.

    I'm still working on mine, I'll try to post a link when I've got it done.

    try the above links in the wordpress forums, they all helped me. Also, if you are having problems getting your images to appear in the slider window, do not mark them "sticky"

    This option is on the Edit Post page, in the Publish box, under "Visibility." On other themes, in order to get a post in a featured position, you have to mark it "Sticky," in Oxygen, to have it appear in the slider, go down to the Location box, and mark it "Featured."

    To have it appear underneath your slider as a thumbnail, mark it "Primary." The "Secondary" option will give you a link without a thumbnail.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,
    I can't seem to get the 'categories' off of my featured image. They just started showing up and I have no idea what I did (I'm sure its something stupid, but I'm not very good at wordpress yet)

    This has been a very helpful read. Im stuck on one thing still.

    I am not seeing the "location" option on my posts.

    I am using it as a theme on WordPress.Com. Could that have anything to do with it?

    Hi,

    I originally used oxygen on the free wordpress site and there was a header by default.

    Now I installed oxygen on http://saeedshahani.com but there was no header in the theme options. Can anyone help me to get the header once again?

    Hi all,

    Im new in the forum and just started to make a website. Thank you for sharing the information.

    To mstremayne: i find out how te remove the horizontale grey bar.
    They call it the breadcrumbs.
    Go to your style.cc and find the breadcrumb alineas and replace them with below information. (dont forget to backup your originale breadcrumb sentences, you never know if you want it back).

    }
    .breadcrumbs {
    visibility: hidden;
    }

    Regards,

    Jeff

    Hi Mstremeyne,

    You can also try this. I think this one you keep the "Home / <insert title of post here> " Only delete grey bar.

    }
    .breadcrumbs {
    display: none;
    }

    good luck,

    jeff

    I also have a question.
    On the left side of your home page you have a picture bar instead of the traditionale category. How did you do that? is that a plugin?

    Thank you,

    Hi, Jeff -

    I used the picture / image widget to make the picture bar. So, I dragged across the number of image widgets I needed for how many categories I wanted. With the image widget you can choose an image and a link. So, I used the link that related to the category I wanted (eg. playingwithsticks.com/safety). I am careful in categorizing all of my posts so that they show up with the correct picture image/link (eg. all posts related to safety get tagged safety and show up when anyone clicks on the safety picture).

    I hope this helps! :)

    Hi, a general question: is it possible to install plugins on Oxygen? I'd love to use the bol.com plugin, but there doesn't seem to be a possibility at all to install plugins, on my dashboard. Is anyone using plugins on oxygen, and how did you install them?

    1. Go to Pages, click add new and name it Home. On the right you'll see page attributes and choose 'Front Page' in Templates. Save the page.

    2. Go to pages, click add new and name it Blog (or whatever you want).

    3. Go to settings>reading, choose front page displays "static". Choose the Front Page as "Home", and Posts Page as "Blog".

    4. Every time you create a post, choose "Featured" for the slider, "Primary" for the list of images below, and "Secondary" for the 'more articles' section.

    Hi there - love the oxygen theme but I"m new to wordpress and am having trouble with a couple of things.

    1. Can't remove the option to "leave a reply". It's showing up on pages and posts. Look as I may I don't see how. I've gone under settings and unchecked any boxes that would allow a comment.

    2. Having trouble turning on the image slider. I've gone to all my pages and set a "featured image". didn't work. Checked the settings under the easy slider to make sure it was enabled. I decided to try to set it to custom image and uploaded images. Still no luck. I've designated my "home" page as a static page. Home page settings are set to "default" template. If I set it to "front page" my content disappears. I get an empty page with no posts notification.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Alexandra,

    Answer for question 1: "im using dutch version of wordpress, so apologize if it can confuse you.

    if you make a new page: go to option: check the reactions /comments box
    Scroll down and and you see that leave a reply is checked. If you uncheck it every page, then it will be gone.

    Question 2: I also have this problem and not solved yet.

    If you know how to solve it, please met me know.
    thank you,
