This is my first post in the forum so I’d like to just say thanks for dropping in and reading.
I recently started a WordPress based website for a gaming community, using a theme purchased off themeforest.net. It wasn’t until after I purchased and set up the theme (which I really like) that I realised you can’t link directly to blog posts without screwing up the theme formatting.
To give you an idea, here’s a link to my site and what it looks like, and here’s a direct link to a post – you can see the problem.
I contacted the makers of the theme and asked if there was anything I could do to at least make the direct link more usable. They told me that direct links to blog posts can only be displayed “in Modal” (whatever that means) and that nothing can be done.
This is a problem because just like everyone else, I rely on sending out direct links via social networks etc.
I’m just wondering, is what they say true? I have no WordPress theme/coding experience, but i do have some past experience in programming. If something can be done to improve my problem I’ll gladly look into it further, but are they right? Can nothing be done?
