    Hi,

    I have tried following the guide by Andrew Nevins to create custom circles that link to websites and when you click on the circle a page comes up saying
    name link< code> already use</p>
    Could someone / Andrew please give me some guidance as to how to correct this please. I love the theme and have successfully made other changes based on Andrew's instructions.

    Hi, thank you for your prompt reply. On the homepage of http://www.pennychandler.com.au the circles Blog and Shop are custom circles as per your instructions, all other circles are normal posts. When I click on the Blog or Shop circles using Chrome I get the message as in my first post of the thread, link code already use, when I try the blog and shop circles using iPad I get about:blank. The Blog circle is supposed to link to another wordpress blog and the Shop circle links to my Etsy shop. I created a custom field link as in the guide instructions.
    I did try to delete the content-home.php as in your instructions but then I lost all of the circles apart from the two custom ones and they didn't link to anything so I re pasted from original Spun content-home.php. I followed all other instructions in your guide to custom circles. Hope that all makes sense.

    So, I have been having a play as I am determined to try and get this to work. I have no knowledge of coding so the only way I can do it is to copy and paste what is already out there.
    I tried the code from a post Andrew answered 4 months ago called link to second blog site.
    I put the following from his post into content-home.php
    http://pastebin.com/A3we5dHA
    then I created a post with a custom field link to another website and it worked . . . except all of the circles on the homepage lost their titles (they were floating to the left handside but ghosted - feintly visible)
    I can't work out how to fix the titles issue so that I can use the code or how to fix the custom circles issue so that they link to a website or can have an image. Please can someone help me I don't have enough knowledge to work out what is missing. I have definitely followed the instructions as I have created numerous different child themes following the same instructions to test if I missed something. Thank you in advance.

    Sorry I didn't have enough time to look into this, because my guide was so big and written a while ago it would have taken me a while to just get my head around it. Thanks for posting the solution.
