  • Hello everyone,

    On my website, I am using Site 5’s “Boldy” theme. Here is my link:

    I have already tried repeatedly to get the Site 5 team to help and they just don’t answer. What i would like to do is this:

    You’ll notice that there are 3 subsections on the home page: About 39 Images, Services, Testimonials. Below that, to the right, is a mini contact form. The left of that is empty space. Site 5 built the theme to have a Twitter stream there, and that is in the theme’s coding. The problem is – I have no Twitter page and don’t plan on getting one. So as it stands, that area remains blank. I’d like to place a “Projects in Development” section in that space. That section will include a heading, space for a few lines of text and a small image. I’d like it to be the same size as the contact form to the right of it. Can anyone PLEASE tell me how to do this??

    Thanks! 🙂

  • I dont know how the boldy theme looks like, but I think its pretty easy, just delete the content in the div that produces the twitterform, replace that with your code 🙂

    I’m not sure it’s quite that simple. I replaced the content between the div tags and it still showed nothing. There’s some other coding somewhere that I need to edit. Ultimately, the Site5 team would know best about how/where to edit; but again, I can’t seem to get an answer over there. I’ve been asking for two months.

    You’ll need to modify the footer.php file.

    The portion that needs to be removed is:

    <?php if(get_option('boldy_twitter_user')!="" && get_option('boldy_latest_tweet')!="no"){ ?>
    				<div id="twitter">
    					<a href="<?php echo get_option('boldy_twitter_user'); ?>" class="action">Follow Us!</a>
    					<div id="latest">
    						<div id="tweet">
    							<div id="twitter_update_list"></div>
    						<div id="tweetBottom"></div>
    				<?php } ?>
    				<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    				<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo get_option('boldy_twitter_user'); ?>.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count=<?php
    					echo get_option('boldy_number_tweets');
    						echo "1";
    					} ?>">

    If you’re wanting to have a dynamic “Projects in Development” you’ll either need to cook up a custom query to pull the relevant data or maybe register a sidebar that will reside in that block and use one of the numerous “latest post” widgets out there.

    Could you tell me how to get a widget into that space? Realistically, I could just use a custom HTML widget if I could figure out how to position it there.
