    Not exactly what you're looking for, but see the topic: Products instead of posts

    Hi daniel

    I am using minimatica - I love it!
    Just editing my posts so all my images from past posts appear.
    However, can you help.
    On the slider, the images appear blurred, too zoomed in. How do I correct this?
    I have changed the embed media settings to 600x400 but this hasnt helped.
    Can you help?
    (Also, I tried to create an account on your theme site but it wouldn't let me even though I had completed all the fields correctly.)

    Also, any advice you can give me on creating page links under my header would be great too! :-)

    Thanks ever so.

    Use the AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild plugin.

    Hopefully I'll ask this correctly, but on the homepage gallery, on the posts about 55 words currently show up. Is there any way to change the number of words that appear as a caption at the bottom of each gallery post?

    I'd rather there be about 25 words instead.

    Add this to functions.php:

    function minimatica_excerpt_length( $length ) {
    	return 25;
    }
    
    add_filter( 'excerpt_length', 'minimatica_excerpt_length' );

    Hi Daniel

    In spite of using AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild plugin I still see zoomed images on my slider. I activated the plugin and regenerated the thumbnail but the slider did not get updated.
    Can you jot down a step- by - step process of loading pictures on the slider correctly, please!

    Many Thanks
    Pooja

    Hi Daniel

    I have downloaded AJAX but can you tell me from where do I change the embed media settings? In which part of the code I need to specify the pixel size as 600 x 400?

    I manually resized and uploaded pictures on the slider and they look perfect but when I click to widen them, they do not enlarge to its normal size. I guess this is because I don't know where to put the code.
    Please revert asap as I really need to get my website started asap!!
    Please help. Thanks

    Pooja.

    I just changed my theme from Delicious Magazine to Minimatica because I love the way the it displays the images on the homepage.

    However, I can not find a way get to the editing of the slider that is suppose to appear on the main page. Where do I add the image to show up as the slider on the main page?

    Click on Posts and you can add a image to the post that way. I dont know of any other way unless someone else does, please chime in. Im new to wordpress and it's taking me days to figure it out.

    i think to solve this you need the lightbox gallery plugin
    then in posts, when you add a photo, you need to click 'set as featured image'
    you may also need the AJAX thumbnail plugin too depending on whether your pics look a little zoomed in on/distorted due to sizing

    Hi. I'm trying to add the slider and images to my home page, which is a static page (not post). It's not happening. Do I need a plugin? Is there a tutorial for this? I've done a fair amount of WPing and this isn't intuitive at all.

    Thanks!

    I'm new to wordpress and I am using the Minimatica template. How do you get images to appear in the included gallery? I haven't a clue?
    THanks

    hi jlallmail

    when you say "top gallery" what do u mean ? on the front page ? or in a blog post ?

    1. if front page : just post featured image with each blog post and all images will appear there

    2. if in a single blog post then choose gallery on the right side of a post itself and it will show photos

    HELP!
    I'm a complete "newby" with setting up a site so please bare with me if I don't ask the questions exactly right. I'm using Minimatica and using the site for info, photos, and would like to put on a calendar of events.
    1. I am not able to get anything posted to the "Home" page http://www.handpaintedandmore.com/home/ whether it's text or image. Every time I try to post it keeps going to the second category. How do I get the "About Us" posted to Home category???
    2. The sliding images are on the 2nd category (or is it menu?) and you have to get into that in order to get to the pages. Any way around that?
    I tried looking at your responses above and others and I'm doing what is suggested but isn't working.
    Thanks for your patience!!!

    Hi, I had the same problem: not be able to set images in the homepage.Anyway, I think I found the solution: all images must be upload as "featured image" in each post....

    Right?

    Okay so, I have the same problem even after I have set the pictures at "Featured Image". They still don't appear, help! http://www.peakhiking.com
    Shall I upload the AJAX thumbnail plugins or Lightbox gallery plugins? Or does anyone know a better plugin that would help me on this situation?
    Thanks in advance for your time and help on this.

    How do I change the size of the popup (Lightbox or something) from the display image? Is it possible to have the image displayed full-size (My photo is 1400pix, but when photo is box, then photo is abaut 800pix )?

    I hope I can help, but I'm relatively new as well.
    If you're trying to post your image to the front page set it as a featured image, under 'format' on the left, click the image box then try to "sticky" your post to the front page.
    Go to 'edit post'
    On the right side you will see 'Publish'
    Second line down there is 'visibility'
    tick on the box that says 'sticky this post to the front page'
    viola!
    Look here
    For those having trouble with image sizing most of my images are around 765x425 approx and look fine on the front page.

    Hi ameliamcgoldrick

    I have a specific question. I have the same theme as you

    You're website looks good.... how did you get the posts to look more like pages on your website?

    It was a lot of trial and error. I'm new to this stuff.
    I went into 'editor' under 'appearance on the left and removed all the
    html coding under comments (save it somewhere else just in case you remove the wrong thing). I found the html to remove the "written by admin" and the time stamp so it doesn't look like a blog(can't remember where exactly) If you search this forum you will find the answer somewhere.
    Hope this helped!

    Hi,

    I'm totally new to WP and I found minimatica theme, loved it, so I downloaded it. I'm hoping to make more like "website" than "blogsite" and I want to have most of the pages "unchanged" on a daily basis and have only one page that's the actual blog which I'd post something on the regular basis.

    My question is - with Minimatica, can I set up the "start page" with 4 photos with "set" photos that does not change with every post.
    From reading the forum, my understanding is that you can change those photos by "posting" - but can I set 4 photos I want them to be shown always?

    If there's a way for that, then my next question is - how can I set up those 4 pages for different purpose? eg. the first one to be "about", the second one to be "gallery", the third one to be "blog" and the last one to be "contact" etc?

    I hope my questions make sense.
    If anyone could help me, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hey everyone,

    To have the photos from 4 posts (set as featured image each time) display on the home page:

    Settings > Reading > Front page displays "Latest Posts" (not the 2 selections).

    Create a "Blog" category for other posts then add that manually to the menu.

    Hope that helps.

    - Paul

    Daniel,

    I need your assistance with minimatic. First let me say I love the design. I've got it setting up the way I want but I'm having a few issues. I host a radio sports talk show and I would like to get the first picture to link to that shows webpage and I can't figure out how to do it. Secondly I would like my blog link to mimic the one you have on the sample site and I can't figure out how to get it to work I know it has something to do with the archive page but I'm stuck. Please help me.

    Hi Everyone,

    First of all a big thanks to Daniel for creating this great theme.

    I have a little experience with coding but none with php. I was hoping someone could direct to the part in functions.php where I can change the thickness of the default images on the home page. I would like to have 5 posts available on the home page, but would like to keep the width smaller overall. I'm not sure by how much exactly, and am willing to use some trial and error once I know what part of the code to modify.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks,
    Dan
