Support » Theme: Ample » Good, how to make it great…

  • This is a pretty good theme, and the Business Template (note there is only one, can only be used on one page – probably want to use on your homepage … though this is normal convention anyway) is powerful. My only complaint is that the portfolio widget and “featured posts” widget only work with posts. Easily fixed by adding the “post type switcher plugin”. Convert your pages to posts if you want to use them with these widgets. Note that afterwards you’ll probably want to change your settings-permalinks so that they don’t include the date in the URL, so they won’t look like blog posts.

    Also if your “read more” button on TG: Featured Posts widget are misplaced due to text overflows then add this to your custom CSS (under Customize – Design) to limit the length of the copied text to 2 lines:
    .entry-summary p {
    display: block; /* or inline-block */
    text-overflow: ellipsis;
    word-wrap: break-word;
    overflow: hidden;
    max-height: 3.6em;
    line-height: 1.8em;
    }

    I also use the Unyson plugin for the other webpages (not the front page) so I can do similar stuff easily as is capable on the business template.

    I do wish the slider was capable of full-page-width (edge to edge).
