Support » Plugin: CM Answers » Showing Only The Head Portion of my Theme

  • Resolved Christian Freeman (codelion)


    Hi guys. First of all, I want to say that this is a Great Plugin! I’m strongly considering purchasing the Pro Version, but I have an issue with the plugin. It’s not showing my theme. Well, it’s only showing me the Head portion of my theme. I’ve built the theme myself, so I know that the theme works fine. Any ideas on how I can get CM Answers to show within my theme?

    From the FAQ…You need to create a CMA sub-directory in your theme directory and copy all files from cm-answers/views/frontend over. You can then edit index.phtml and single.phtml located under answer folder

    If you are familiar with php/html this will be easy for you

    Plugin will use CMA files if found instead of cm-answers/views/frontend so upgrading the plugin from one version is easy

    This is not related to Pro plugin this is a basic feature of cm answers

    Thanks for the quick response, it looks like you guys are really on top of things in the support department, so at this point, I will definitely purchase the Pro version tomorrow.

    I’ve followed your directions to the letter, and it looks like it worked! Well, it worked partially anyway.

    After modifying index.phtml, I am now able to see the rest of my theme. But there is some kind of code conflict w/ the sidbars that you’ve coded into the plugin, and the sidebar that I have built into my theme.

    My sidebars are showing up on the page, but for some reason, they are showing up outside of the div that they are normally contained in. And this is causing both sidebars to show up at the bottom of the page (they’re actually off of the page).

    If you can help me figure out how to get my theme working with this plugin, it would be much appreciated.

    Here’s the code from my index.phtml file:

    		<div class="shirt-canvas">
            	<div class="shirt-content">
                	<div class="shirt-design-area"><?php echo do_shortcode('[layerslider id="1"]'); ?>
                        <div class="content-outer">
                        	<div class="content-inner">
