bloginfo('show') doesn't output anything? (8 posts)

    I've designed my own theme using images, CSS files, and index.html. I'm now looking to convert that to WordPress and have been reading up on theming:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development
    http://yoast.com/wordpress-theme-anatomy/

    To start, I took the "twentyten" theme and tried revising it to only include the base stuff needed. My images don't seem to be relative to the theme, so I tried the suggested bloginfo('show') function. Problem is that nothing shows. :-/ Am I missing some kind of hook to link this theme to WordPress? The theme is activated ok and I have the information right at the top of the style.css file. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    - Matt

    Looks like WordPress is a lot pickier than I thought when it comes to index.php and header.php file structure. I tried coming up with my own copy of header.php, but it looks like I'll need to include everything from the twentyten theme's structure for it to even read my style sheet.

    What was the structure of your own header.php?

    what is the exact code you are using?

    (you can post up to ten lines of code directly here; for longer code please use a http://wordpress.pastebin.com/)

    'show' is not an actual parameter, but a spaceholder for the possible parameter mentioned later in the docu

    Here's what I have in header.php:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
       <head>
       <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1250">
       <meta name="generator" content="PSPad editor, www.pspad.com">
       <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
       <title><?php
    	/*
    	 * Print the <title> tag based on what is being viewed.
    	 */
    	global $page, $paged;
    
    	wp_title( '|', true, 'right' );
    
    	// Add the blog name.
    	bloginfo( 'name' );
    
    	// Add the blog description for the home/front page.
    	$site_description = get_bloginfo( 'description', 'display' );
    	if ( $site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) )
    		echo " | $site_description";
    
    	// Add a page number if necessary:
    	if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 )
    		echo ' | ' . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'twentyten' ), max( $paged, $page ) );
    
    	?></title>
    <?php
    	wp_head();
    ?>
       </head>
       <body>

    And here's the twentyten version:

    <?php
    /**

     * Displays all of the <head> section and everything up till <div id="main">

     * @since Twenty Ten 1.0
     */
    ?><!DOCTYPE html>
    <html <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
    <head>
    <meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
    <title><?php
    	/*
    	 * Print the <title> tag based on what is being viewed.
    	 */
    	global $page, $paged;
    
    	wp_title( '|', true, 'right' );
    
    	// Add the blog name.
    	bloginfo( 'name' );
    
    	// Add the blog description for the home/front page.
    	$site_description = get_bloginfo( 'description', 'display' );
    	if ( $site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) )
    		echo " | $site_description";
    
    	// Add a page number if necessary:
    	if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 )
    		echo ' | ' . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'twentyten' ), max( $paged, $page ) );
    
    	?></title>
    <link rel="profile" href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="<?php bloginfo( 'stylesheet_url' ); ?>" />

    <?php

    	 */
    	if ( is_singular() && get_option( 'thread_comments' ) )
    		wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' );
    
    	/* Always have wp_head() just before the closing </head>

    	wp_head();
    ?>
    </head>

    			</div><!-- #access -->
    		</div><!-- #masthead -->
    	</div><!-- #header -->
    
    	<div id="main">

    Does wp_nav_menu really need to be in header.php, or can it be in index.php instead?

    My goal is to keep things simple. I really don't need a lot of additional stuff as I'll manually plug that into the theme itself. I'm ideally just looking for blog functionality (loop), side panels, menu generation, and pages.

    I think I'm beginning to figure things out. The main issue seemed to be the reference to style.css. From the guide I was reading, it seemed that a relative link of "style.css" would do. Instead, I had to use bloginfo( 'stylesheet_url'). Stylesheet image references appear to be the only ones that are relative. I had to use the following in the index.php file for the logo:

    echo get_bloginfo('template_url') . '/images/logo.png'

    for child themes you can use get_stylesheet_directory_uri()
