    Absoulutley love this theme. Finally got the theme working just how I like.

    I am wanting to move the ‘Written By’ and ‘Leave a comment’ sections directly under the post as opposed to the bottom of the page.

    How can I go about implimenting this?

    Thanks for choosing Tracks!

    There are two ways this can be done. First, the widgets that are currently showing after the post content and before the author bio could be moved into the footer instead. You can visit the Widgets menu (Appearance > Widgets) and drag-and-drop them from the “After Post Content” widget area into the “Footer” widget area to do that.

    The second way is to use a child theme to move the author bio and comments section above the widgets by modifying a template file. If you’re unfamiliar with child themes, let me know and I can put one together for you.

    Thanks for the reply Ben. Much appriciated.

    I think the child theme is the way to go as I’d like the bio and comments to appear above the widgets.

    How would I go about installing this etc..?

    Okay cool, here’s where you can download the child theme:

    Download Tracks child theme

    Here are the steps for activating the child theme:

    1. Visit your site’s dashboard
    2. Go to the Appearance menu
    3. Click on the “Add New” button at the top of the page
    4. Click on the “Upload Theme” button at the top of the page
    5. Click on the “Choose File” button
    6. Select the file you downloaded from this email
    7. Click “Install Now”
    8. Once the page reloads, click the blue “activate” link

    Once activated, the After Post Content widgets will display after the comments.

    If you have changed any settings in the Customizer, they may not be carried over when you activate the child theme. Don’t worry if this happens. You just need to switch back to Tracks, and then export your settings with the Customizer Export/Import plugin. You can then switch back to the child theme and import your settings. Then the site will display exactly the same, but with the widgets after the comments.

    Nice one. Thanks Ben. Much appreciated. Awesome support.
