Support » Theme: Pinboard » Awesome

  • When it came to the internet, all I knew to do was click on websites. I started up a blog using the Pinboard theme and have been VERY HAPPY! It is easy to use and looks great! The website is called Mechanic In A Can (dot com). You can see it here.

    Thanks to the developer One Designs!!

  • Hi Brian,

    I was wondering if you could please shed some light on how you added the pages onto one page rather than a drop down menu.

    Somethign like this on your website

    I would like to be able to add pages in a similar manner. I’d greatly appreciate your input. Thanks, Mary

    Hi Mary,

    I am by far no expert in the wordpress world, but I did managed to figure out my website. You have to create the pages and/or categories (under posts).

    -Then go to appearance => menus.
    -Set up a menu name (in the event you create more then 1)
    -On the left side, choose the page or category and click “add to menu”
    -It will then show up under menu structure. Move around with cursor.
    -The main tabs will be all the way to the left.
    -Your sub-pages or sub-categories, move with cursor, under and to the right of the main tabs you have selected.
    -“save menu” at bottom

    SORRY, just did a proof read and think you mean having the posts show up on the “page” (but the above may still help). Your tabs have to be post/category tabs, not page tabs. (Again, this coming from a novice.). Pages are one page of information. Post/Category tabs contain all of your articles/posts you create. The only page tab you see on the main menu bar of my site is “about” and “contact” the rest are category main menu tabs created via the posts section and then arranged as indicated above.

    Hope this helps.

    I am using Pinboard also. How in the world did you get your mobile site to work so well? What did you do to make mobile version reflect your full-size version? I’ve been trying to do that for a long time and have yet to succeed.

    thank you

    I wish I had a simple answer for you (or even an answer), but I spent about 3 months making an adjustment here or there. I have two adjustments, I think, dealt directly with mobile:

    @media screen and (max-width: 800px) {
    .slides {
    height: 100%;
    }

    @media screen and (max-width: 800px) {

    #header {
    position: relative;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
    }

    These are, of course, put into your custom CSS and not changed in the original file.

    Good luck,
    Brian

    Thanks for responding, Brian.
    I will try those changes
