Syntax
[resolved] Syntax theme: a few questions (13 posts)

    Hi, there.

    I've just started using Syntax, and I have a few questions:

    1. I have an 'R' favicon appearing on my home page (http://chrislovietyler.com). I'm assuming this is generated by the theme. If so, is there a way of removing it?

    2. Is there a way to make post-categories visible at the bottom of each post (next to the date and "Leave a comment")? I'd like people to be able to see which category a particular post has been assigned to.

    3. In the example of the left-aligned image at the top of the WordPress.com theme page (http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/syntax/), the image is aligned with the text. But in the demo version (http://syntaxdemo.wordpress.com/2011/07/07/my-favorite-book/), and the one I've downloaded, it's not. The image sticks out further to the left. Is this intentional, or is it a bug that needs to be fixed?

    Hallow chrislovietyler, what I have come to find when we are waiting for a clear answer, when you align the images right, the fit fine. :)

    Thanks, but that doesn't work for me. The image still sticks out beyond where the edge of the text is.

    Unless it's an issue related to pages rather than posts. It's happening for me on a page: http://chrislovietyler.com/about/.

  4. Hi Chris,

    1. I have an 'R' favicon appearing on my home page (http://chrislovietyler.com). I'm assuming this is generated by the theme. If so, is there a way of removing it?

    I'm not seeing a favicon on your site, and the theme doesn't include one. It could be your browser caching an old favicon from an earlier theme - favicons are notoriously "sticky."

    If you'd like to add a new favicon to the theme, you could create a child theme and add a favicon link to one in header.php.

    You'd then be able to force a favicon refresh by using a rename method like this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2208933/how-do-i-force-a-favicon-refresh

  5. 2. Is there a way to make post-categories visible at the bottom of each post (next to the date and "Leave a comment")? I'd like people to be able to see which category a particular post has been assigned to.

    Again, you'd need to create a child theme in order to do this.

    Here are some guides in case you haven't made one before:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
    http://op111.net/53/
    http://vimeo.com/49770088

    Once you set that up, let me know and I can help you further.

    Do you want the category to appear only on the single-post view or elsewhere, and if so, in which views?

  6. 3. In the example of the left-aligned image at the top of the WordPress.com theme page (http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/syntax/), the image is aligned with the text. But in the demo version (http://syntaxdemo.wordpress.com/2011/07/07/my-favorite-book/), and the one I've downloaded, it's not. The image sticks out further to the left. Is this intentional, or is it a bug that needs to be fixed?

    I'm not sure but I will find out for you and report back.

    1. You were right; it was my browser (Chrome) cache. I've cleared it, and the favicon has gone. Thanks!

    2. I'm surprised that doesn't come standard with the theme--most other themes include it. Thanks for the info on child themes, though. I might have a go at creating one when I get some time.

    3. Look forward to hearing back from you on that.

    Thanks for the answers, Kathryn.

    I love the theme, by the way.

    Hi!
    Thanx a lot for this template.
    How can I get info about the license for this template?
    Do I have rights to edit it or use in other CMS (distribute for free)?
    Please provide a link to this kind of information.

  9. Roxy108 - please start a new thread for your question as it's unrelated to this one. Thanks.

  10. 2. I'm surprised that doesn't come standard with the theme--most other themes include it.

    Some of our newer themes like Writr are opting not to display Categories with each post for a cleaner look.

    You could still use tags, or place a category widget in a sidebar so visitors can see all posts under a certain category.

    I love the theme, by the way.

    I'm glad to hear it!

    Aah, that makes sense. And that's why I love this theme: because it's so minimal.

    Thanks for your help, Kathryn!

  12. 3. In the example of the left-aligned image at the top of the WordPress.com theme page (http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/syntax/), the image is aligned with the text. But in the demo version (http://syntaxdemo.wordpress.com/2011/07/07/my-favorite-book/), and the one I've downloaded, it's not. The image sticks out further to the left. Is this intentional, or is it a bug that needs to be fixed?

    Just wanted to get back to you to confirm that the image "outdenting" is an intentional design choice, and we've updated the relevant screenshots. The screenshot on WordPress.org will be updated soon, once a revised version of the theme is in the directory.

    Thanks for the reply, Kathryn. I wondered that when I first saw it, but then wondered why the image on the WordPress site was different.

    Cool. Still loving the theme!
