Support » Theme: Pinboard » Author/date info being hidden when nested categories are assigned to post

  • I recently ported our website from the hosting to a private server that I run, and set up pinboard as my theme. I’ve been working out the kinks slowly, and this one’s got me hung up:

    When a post (standard template) is assigned to two categories, one nested in the other, the author’s name and date information seem to disappear.

    As an example, most of our post categories are “genre” of blog posts. TV & Film, Music Box, In The News, etc. They are all contained inside the “Blog Sections” category, which I use to generate a page with all blogs (they’re set as the portfolio page, which is hidden from the front page, so we can feature our magazine articles on the front, but blogs are all on one page).

    However, Blog Sections is automatically selected whenever a blog post is made, and unless it is manually un-checked, the category will be set as “Blog Sections/TV & Film” or whatever the sub-category is.

    In that case, the author and date data on the post page will be replaced with “Blog Sections/TV & Film”.

    Single category: (working properly)
    Nested category: (hidden author/date info)

    Since our site is largely crowdsourced for content (from a class of uni students), it would be a massive inconvenience to have to double check every single one.

    Is there a setting I can change or a file I can alter to fix this issue?

  • I have the same problem and I would like to find a solution, I hope someone will help us!

    My problem is little different but the result is same. In template options, when I uncheck “Exclude Portfolio Category from main loop” in option for home page, the date in full post displayed before grid disappear on the home page, only the category appear.
