Minimatica
[closed] Remove folded banner in Minimatica (181 posts)

    I have been searching the web for several days, trying to discover the easiest way to delete the black fold over banner that appears on a post thumbnail in the Minimatica blog.

    There are discussions about this issue on the Internet, but no real solution and/or the threads are dead.

    I'd truly appreciate help. Thanks so much!

    I think he means the black ribbon that says "By 'Username' on 'Date'" that appears over the thumbnail/featured image of a blog post list page.

    Hey,

    I have some trouble here and need a copy of the style.css (stylesheet). Can anyone send me the text? Please, pretty please?

    I normally save a copy before I start chaning things, but for some reason my computer had not registered any changes I am making to the code (and still has not now, I can only see on another computer) so i thought my changes were having no effect.

    I was trying to get rid of the caption boxes on the sliders, so I changed loads of the values in the 'kwicks area' to 0 for both width and lenght. Not knowing I was actually having an effect I went zero crazy and managed to lose the sliders completely doh! Now I can't remember what all of the sizes were! and I have no sliders showing (on other computers) eeek

    @Julie -- just download another copy of the theme to your computer and replace the old CSS file via FTP.

    Hey, thanks for that. I didn't realise you could do that (newby)

    I don't suppose you would know how to remove the caption boxes on my slider?

    http://www.designpush.co.uk

    ???? That's what I was trying to do in the first place.

    I have also asked on another thread if people know how to add additional slider menus. I have seen a site that does this and I am not sure how it is done

    The caption in the slider is part of the wordpress excerpt, it's not controlled with css.

    remeber, these are posts, and this is a blog page. You would need to reduce the excerpt length to 0 to remove it and only show featured images.
    You can do that with a plugn called advanced excerpt.

    I'll be back with info about getting more slides, I've done it too.

    @deepbevel -- thanks for the help

    This site has different sliders associated with the different items on the menu at the bottom. I can make new sliders by adding more than 4 posts, but I have no idea how to link them to the menu.

    Ideally I would like that when i select one of the posts on the first slider, it opens a new slider for each one.

    :-s

    I am not sure of the etiquate of posting other peoples sites one here (hope that's ok)

    change posts per page in loop slider.php. You can also add other filters to the query as well, like category and number of pages.

    then, in css you'll need to adjust the widths of the featured images, denpending on how many you show.

    I found 140 works for 6

    .kwicks .slide {
    width:140px;
    }

    I don't understand your request about linking slides to the menu, they link to posts. I suppose you could have a menu in your posts..

    Have you looked at the site?

    If you select 'home' from the menu at the bottom you get one set of sliders

    If you select 'Behandelingen' from the menu at the bottom you get a new set

    How is this done?

    ah, now your talking about the menu, just select "Gallery" as the menu style for categories in the theme options.

    but you'll need to make category pages first of course.

    the subject of this thread is going all over the place, did you resolve posts per page?

    lol, it is a bit.

    Yes I am ok with posts per page thanks for the help.

    I have downloaded the 'advanced excerpt plugin' and I am just scrolling through the .php to try and find where to set the width to 0 (not clear on first run-through)

    I already have the menu style set as Gallery but I have not got my head around the whole 'catagories' thing to be quite honest. I have lots of pages and posts, but not really used the catagories. Is this were I need to focus?

    Yes, this is making sense now. Thank you so much for your help :)

    You can set the number to 0 in the excerpt, its the first setting in advanced excerpt.

    You'll need to make a category page with a custom menu, under appearance/menus.

    All posts in the selected category will appear as featured images, just like the home slider.

    Not getting the 'advance excerpt' working to get rid of the captions. There is no 'settings' section (only activate/edit/delete)

    I was trying to change the text in the .php, is this what I should be doing? Seems like there should be a settings page.

    The 'plug-in site' is not running either so can't get help from that!

    I totally get the whole catagories thing now and have created different catagories so that the menu at the bottom of the page can open different sliders.

    But

    Can I also link them, so that the first post on the home page slider (when pressed) opens a new slider

    ie, The fist four posts on the slider on the home page are the MAIN MENU and each post opens a SUB MENU slider with another 4 posts.

    Can I do this?

    The slider only links to posts, not category/archives. You would have to do some coding. could get nasty.

    A work around would be to create an archive page within a post. There are plugins which allow you to query posts within the content area of another post via shortcode. Xili posts in post is one which comes to mind.

    Adavanced excerpts settings are under Settings/Excerpt.

    However, the posts in your shortcode-archive will not display in the minimatica slider, so perhaps that's no good.

    there's probably a way to hard-code the links so no matter what post or image is in the slider, you could make it link to what ever you wanted, such as the minimatica gallery style archive for a set category.
    I'll check that out as I can if interested. I might use that myself.

    actually, xili posts in post plugin is pretty flexible, wondering if it's possible to include the minimatica post slider function as output in the xili query..? somehow I doubt it but I may have to try. Aside being able to link to a minimatica gallery archive inside a post, It woudl be cool to get that output for any custom post query you wanted, anywhere in the theme.
