[resolved] Issue with "Blix" theme (4 posts)

    I'm working on customizing the "Blix" theme to suit my needs (the original theme can be seen @ http://www.kingcosmonaut.de/blix/). The issue that I am having is that I have more pages than fit on the first line of page links that are listed right under the header graphic.

    Because of this, another line of page links is created, but you can't see those links unless you put your mouse on them. Does anyone know how to change this so that the 2nd row of page links is the same as the first?

    To see what I mean, you can see my site @ http://victoria-e.com/

    As far as I know, you would have to remove the "search bar" codes part, or section...to the sidebar.php file, rather then having it in the header.php file.

    In control panel => Presentation => Themes => Themes Editor =>...Click on the header.php file link. then edit from there.
    This part, as far as I know:


    <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="get">
    <fieldset>
    <input value="<?php echo wp_specialchars($s, 1); ?>" name="s" id="s" />
    <input type="submit" value="Go!" id="searchbutton" name="searchbutton" />
    </fieldset>
    </form>

    Relocate this coding from the header.php file, to the sidebar.php file...some where within it.

    To be able to have more links at top. But it also depends on how many pages you have to start with. If you want 20 pages, or so...you'd have to add them pages (meaning the links to the pages) to the sidebar.php file.

    Please tell me different, moderators, or ppls...

    It all depends on your intentions..so please let us know what that is..so we can help you with it. =)

    Also, please be warned, you'll need to change the background and such, via the CSS file, if you move it to the sidebar.php file. It's not hard, but, you'll have to, when moving it. =)

    Also, there is more ppl out there using Blix then I, so maybe they'll be able to help you more.. =)

    Makes sense - I'd have no problem doing that. I only have 3 extra pages that are listed on the 2nd bar that need to show, so moving the search bar shouldn't be that big of an issue.

    If anyone has any other tips, let me know :)

    In the blix help file (which is the readme.html located in the blix theme files) it will give you instructions for creating a secondary nav bar for the extra pages.
