Support » Theme: Tuto » Get some empty boxes next to the posts title

  • Hello,

    In the main page, I get a big empty box next to the title of each post. I have assumed that this would be used for featured image of the post or so, but I can´t set that, I am unable to put any image there, and so the box remains as an empty annoyance. Help please.

    Best,
    John.

    Hi John,

    thanks for using Tuto WordPress theme.

    It seems what you are referring to is the image placeholder in case you haven’t set a featured image. You can set featured images in your WordPress dashboard when you edit a post: How to set featured images in WordPress.

    Hi,

    Indeed that was the problem. The weird thing is that I had set featured images before. Maybe they were removed when the template or any plugin was updated.

    I have another little question, not sure if I should open another topic. I want to change the background color of the menu bars (to blue) and the website title (to green), but the theme does not have the option. I tried going to the style.css and do it by myself (adding color: # but I did not see any changes. Since I am not pro, not sure if I was doing it properly. Any advice?

    Thank you,
    John.

    Hi John,

    perfect, we’re glad that you could solve your issue.

    I have another little question, not sure if I should open another topic.

    Yes, for unrelated questions please always open a new thread so that it isn’t confusing for other people who are looking for help.

    When it comes to CSS customizations, you can always use your browsers inspection tool to inspect the elements on your site and then use that information to add your own code modifications.

    You can add CSS code in your WordPress dashboard under Appearance => Customize => Additional CSS.

    However, for larger customizations it would be recommended to create a child theme (if you’re familiar with coding) and then you can add your own custom CSS code into the stylesheet (style.css) of the child theme.

    You could basically copy & paste the particular CSS code you want to change into the stylesheet of the child theme and then adjust the colors as you like.

    By the way, if you’re looking for a professional magazine theme with color options, you could have a look at our MH Magazine theme.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the reply and the suggestion. I do consider changing to a premium theme if after some months I am happy with my blogging.

    I do have now again some problems with the featured image option. In the new post I have just published, if I pick a featured image that one will show not only on the homepage (as I want), but also at the beginning of the post itself (as I not want), in a huge and ugly size.

    I did not do any change or anything in particular for not getting the featured image in the posts before, or for getting it now. Any advice on how I can prevent the featured image to be show at the beginning of the post?

    Thank you,
    John.

    The featured image is supposed to be displayed at the beginning of the post (see theme demo). The reason why it’s huge on some of your posts is because the uploaded image is too small and it’s being scaled by the browser. You should upload images with size of at least 905 x 509px.

    If you want to prevent that your browser scales the image, you can do that with a line of CSS:

    .entry-thumbnail img { width: auto; }

    In case you would like to completely hide the featured image on posts, you could do that as well:

    .entry-thumbnail { display: none; }

    Thanks, but Tuto is a free theme and there currently is no premium version for this theme. 🙂

    Thank you again for the quick reply.

    It worked wonderful! I was trying with other CSS code I found in other fora but they were not working. Yours did 🙂

    What I meant is that I consider having a premium theme, not Tuto, if I am happy with the blogging. The MH Magazine theme looks fantastic and I am happy with your support.

    I can´t venture yet on child themes and I know little about coding. Was just trying to change the menu colors by myself in the style.css but it did not work.
