  • Mr E


    I am working with antisnews at this (mu) multisite installation: using subfolders.

    In magazine mode, the theme has 4 category feeds to the right and mid section. The top two display only one post, the bottom two display three.

    I located that in the folder /includes/ there are featured php files that appear to contain all of the relevant information. I am not a php guru, nor theme dev but from what i can see, swapping those around (with a bit of minor code editing) should function and work. Does that make sense to anyone else here?

  • Hi … funny you bring this up, as I am dealing with both “featured3.php” and “featured5.php” on another desire.

    What you are looking for is on line 8 of the code.

    Change this:
    <?php if(!isset($featured3howmany) || empty($featured3howmany)){$featured3howmany=1;} ?>

    To this:
    <?php if(!isset($featured3howmany) || empty($featured3howmany)){$featured3howmany=3;} ?>

    This will allow you to display the last three posts. I’ve already modified mine, and you are welcome to check it out at (I’m in the process of preparing the site to be revealed at the beginning of Feburary.

    The challenge I am working on right now is trying to figure out how to make the thumbnail images for featured3.php and featured5.php to match featured4.php and featured6.php. I can resize the space in the scripts, but can’t figure out how to move them to the left of the posts vs. being on top.

    Hope this helps!

    Well … it appears my response was a little late (I just checked out your site). Will you be willing to share your code for how you were able to accomplish what I am struggling with on fe..3.php and fe..5.php, as described above? You have it exactly how I would like mine to work.

    Kind regards,


    Mr E


    I don’t mind at all, however I don’t think I’ve really done much debugging.

    I replaced Featured 5 with the Featured 6 php file and rebuilt its numerical references only by category or by 5’s structure (picking it apart some).

    As always, backup the files…
