Titan theme menu (14 posts)

    The only way I can get a menu in the theme called "Titan" is a custom menu in the sidebar.. Is there anyway to edit the menu bar, to create my own and then link them to some af my pages?

    Me, too! I'm going to go hunt down this very basic functionality from another theme and copy it in.

    Titan developers: is the free Titan theme basically done? Very basic functionality is missing in this theme, no customizable menus, no support for header images. (I had to go rip the code out of twentyeleven and copy it in)

    I get that you want people to pay for the premium version, but at this point this theme lags far behind other modern free themes, and is basically cripple ware. Some attention is needed.

    I wish I had not started out using Titan as the backbone for this project.

    I'm having the same problem. The surprise about that I first used the Titan theme on the free worpress.com website and I was able to have a custom menu. But using wordpress.org Titan doesn't have that ability.

    Is it possible that wordpress.org's version of Titan is outdated?

    How do let them know?

    This theme is exactly what I need except for this issue! I hunted around for other themes but this is the one I need.

    Different? Yes. Themes on wordpress.com have often been extensively customised compared to their freely available counterparts.

    I see. I wonder if the full blown $69 version takes care of that. If it does it'll save me hours of fumbling through code.
    I am not a programmer. Heck, I'm barely a blogger!

    I can only suggest that you contact the theme's developer directly about this. We cannot access commercial themes.

    I'll do that.

    While I have a "theme diva" here can I ask another question?

    The default on all blogs is to sort posts by the date/time the blog was posted, having the newest one appear on top.

    But I'm trying to use my blog as an educational tool and would like to sort post alphabetically, A-Z. Is this something that is doable easily? How do you do it?

    How do you do it?

    Using a custom query - which, in turn, means that you do need to have a basic understanding of the Loop. Since you want to adjust the main loop, I'd suggest using query_posts() and something like:

    <?php query_posts( $query_string . '&orderby=title&order=ASC' );?>

    just before the start of the Loop.

    thank you. you're ben very helpful and responsive!

    Looks like I have my work cut out for me.

    btw, is there a line of code I can drop in somewhere that would enable this theme to insert a custom menu? that would be great if I could do that if you could help me figure out where to put it.

    if it isn't too tricky I might try it myself

    It actually needs you to add a couple of lines to more than 1 file but nothing too onerous. See Navigation_Menus for the gory details. :-)

    back to the sorting question. Here's the entire code in my index.php. I assume this is the file where I make the change. Does does something need to get deleted and then I pop in the code you suggested?

    the company contacted me and told me that wordpress.org has an outdated version of the Titan and told me to get the free trial version here at the bottom of the page

    http://thethemefoundry.com/wordpress/titan/

    so I guess the custom menu problem will be solved by itself!

    I see I wasn't allowed to paste all that code

    here's the first 10 lines of the index.php, please let me know wheer to put in your suggested code. Is this the only place I'll need to do that?

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    	<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>
    		<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    			<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    				<div class="post-header">
    					<div class="date"><?php the_time(__( 'M j', 'titan' )); ?> <span><?php the_time( 'y' ); ?></span></div>
