Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar, page template and header issues

  • I’m struggling to edit a template that I purchased and am hoping a kind and generous person might be able to help.

    The site is for a charity I am volunteering for:

    Firstly, there was no page template that was supplied with the template that is a simple content with sidebar page. I have a blog page template with a sidebar, but it overrides any content I enter into the page itself with blog posts that don’t exist (i.e. the main content section is empty: ). I also have a plain content only page and tried adding the get sidebar code at the end of it, but now the sidebar is appearing underneath the content as opposed to the side:

    Secondly, I am trying to remove the site admin, login and entries rss links from the top right of the header, however as far as I can see, they do not appear in the header.php file.

    Finally, if anyone is feeling especially generous, I’m also looking to remove the black shadows that overlay the site, but I don’t know where I would find them or what that kind of “skin” is called in order to google or search how to get rid of it.

    I’d be extremely grateful for help on any of these issues.

  • Sorry, theme issues are out of my expertise for now – hopefully someone else can help!

    To find where the register, login, rss links come from … download Notepad++ and do a “search in files” of the unzipped theme’s files for “Register” – that will work nicely.

    What black shadows?

    Secondly, I am trying to remove the register, login

    In your admin panel click on Settings General and untick
    “Anyone can register” this will not have those links at top.
    You seeing Site Admin because you loged as admin.

    As for templates is hard know without looking at what templates you have.

    Thanks for this. I unticked that box and it removed the register, but not the login or entries RSS. I have template 33133 from Template Monster, which is based on WordPress theme 1198. Is there any code I can paste that might help you see the problem govpatel?

    I will try Christogeretz’s suggestions shortly too.

    Thanks again!

    The black shadows were stored in the template 1198 stylesheet as a background gif image, so that section is now sorted. I would still love some help with the page template if anyone has any ideas!

    Here is the code that I’ve been using for the page template that is resulting in this page:

    If anyone can suggest what to change, that would be wonderful!

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div class=”container_24″>
    <div class=”grid_24″>
    <div id=”content”>
    <?php if ( have_posts() ) while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <div id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>” <?php post_class(‘page’); ?>>
    <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    <?php edit_post_link(‘<small>Edit this entry</small>’,”,”); ?>
    <?php echo ‘<div class=”featured-thumbnail”>’; the_post_thumbnail(); echo ‘</div>’; ?> <!– loades the post’s featured thumbnail, requires WordPress 3.0+ –>

    <div id=”page-content”>
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <div class=”pagination”>
    <?php wp_link_pages(‘before=<div class=”pagination”>&after=</div>’); ?>
    </div><!–#pageContent –>
    <!–#post-# .post–>

    <?php endwhile; ?>
