Support » Fixing WordPress » Can anyone please help with a few changes I need to make? Thanks

  • Hello, I m a beginner at wordpress but really need to get my site up tonight. I would LOVE it if anyone could help me with a few things I need to change on my site! Many thanks in advance!!

    The address is
    The theme I used is TwentyTen. (I would have started from scratch but didn’t have time atm)

    Here are all the things I need to do –

    1. I want to delete the page title from the body of text on the pages ‘Who we are’ and ‘Contact pages’, whilst still keeping the titles of the pages on the menu bar at the top.

    2. I want to change the text colour of all the body text on each page but I don’t know where to start.

    3. In ‘page attributes’ I have chosen the template as ‘one column, no side bar’. But on the ‘Who we are page’ I would like the photos I have used to be on the right of the text instead of below. So is there any way of having two colums (one on the left for the text and one on the right for the images) without the side bar?

    4. As a footer I would like my address under the line on the left and my Fax and Tel numbers on the right. Any one know how to do this?

    5. Finally I would like to change the typeface used to Helvetica or Arial but don’t know how to do this?

    If anyone can help I will be extremely grateful!

  • 1. Open up page.php,remove the following lines of code:

    <?php if ( is_front_page() ) { ?>
    <h2 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <?php } else { ?>
    <h1 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    <?php } ?>

    That will remove the entry title from the body.

    2. Open up style.css, search for

    #content input,
    #content textarea {
    	color: #333;
    	font-size: 16px;
    	line-height: 24px;

    it’s around line 459, change “color:#333” to your desired colour.

    3. When you input your images in the wordpress editor, make them align right and they will go to the right of the page.

    Thanks so much Ganners!

    1. I deleted the code you suggested to remove the entry title from the body. But unfortunately nothing changed? Nothing was messed up either…

    2. If fixed so thanks!

    3. My problem is that I would like the text about each person on the left and the photo of them on the right but wordpress only lets me put the image above or below a line of text… Do you think there might be a way of putting the image behind the text?

    Many thanks again!!

    That is bizarre that nothing has changed, i’ll look into it a bit more. But another solution would be to open up your style.css and find the following

    #content .entry-title {
    	color: #000;
    	font-size: 21px;
    	font-weight: bold;
    	line-height: 1.3em;
    	margin-bottom: 0;

    and add to it:
    display: none;

    You’ll find it on line 559.
    That will hide it from view but it will still exist in your page source, which is actually good for SEO anyway so this way would be better.

    As for 3, I see you’ve got them moved to the right now. If you don’t want the wrap around effect then for each P element in the html view you can change each <p> to <p style=”width: 450px;”>. If you want text over the image (which I don’t recommend for these images) then you can try to position them absolute and give them a z-index of something below 0. Or better yet create a container div for each block of text and do something like

    <div style="background: url:('image url here') center right no-repeat;">Text goes in here</div>

    Again all of this can be done in the wordpress post or page wysiwyg editor.

    The title is finally gone so thank you so much!!

    You sir are a legend. Everything is solved now so thanks allot for your help!!!

    You’re very welcome, glad to help!
