Cakifo
[resolved] Static front page not working (10 posts)

    I seem to have lost most of the clever functionality on my homepage. I'm just setting up the site and have not been able to get the 'categories' list on the home page to appear. Then while trying to fix it I seem to have lost the slider...

    Any help is appreciated...is there a bug? I saw the 'updating cakifo removed widgets from front page' and am wondering if there is a home page bug needing fixing...

    THANKS!

    Sorry for not including a link, it was late and I was tired and frustrated...

    I've followed the instructions, but it seems something weird happened. I'd like to avoid a wipe and new install...

    Hello,

    You should be able to set the slider and categories list under Appearance > Theme Settings. If it still doesn't work please write again.

    Dear Sir,
    Can you please help me to get the font bigger in the word press control panel. Everything goes so small and I hardly can read them. Please teach me how to get this done.

    Jesper,

    Thanks so much for your prompt reply. As you can see I was able to make the home slider work...

    http://www.bettermealchoices.com/

    I noticed if I use the left nav of the Appearance>Customize it looked as if I had selected my 'eating in' category...but when I clicked on Appearance>Theme Settings (the one in the right content pane) I scrolled down and 'eating in' category was NOT selected. Once I selected it from there and updated it worked. I'll remember that for now - thanks.

    Any idea how I can get the section of 4 categories and their respective 3 posts to show on the home page under 'Recent Posts?' I followed the instructions there but that didn't seem to work either... is it a bug?

    Thanks,
    Kyle

    Glad that it works. I'll take a look at the customizer thing.

    I'm sorry but I'm proving additional support for the theme on Theme Hybrid.

    I can help you with that there's a filter called cakifo_recent_posts_query that allows you to change the Recent Posts query in a child theme: https://github.com/jayj/Cakifo/blob/master/section-recentposts.php#L26-L53

    If you mean in the Categories boxes you should be able to choose 4 categories under "Headline Categories" and the number of posts "Headlines Posts". By default posts won't show in those lists if they are in the "Recent Posts" list. If that is what you mean I can give you a solution on Theme Hybrid.
