Theme causing improper rendering on site, need help
Hi there. I am fairly new to the coding side of using WP and have scoured the boards and internet to find a solution to my problem, unsuccessfully.
I created my WP site a few weeks ago using the Matala Theme, v. 1.5.8 I believe when it called for an update.
My site is http://mjfilbeck.com/reinventingvintage/.
After the updte, I lost all rendering on my posts only. You can see a screen shot of what happened here: http://mjfilbeck.com/wp-scrnshots/matala.newinstall.jpg
Pages are fine. Example: http://mjfilbeck.com/reinventingvintage/?page_id=15
I spent a few days searching and learning about PHP and copy/pasted some alternative ‘index’ and ‘style’ and ‘single’ code into my theme files, replacing the Matala code and found that some of the rendering on the posts showed, but not perfectly. Here’s a screen shot of what the posts looked like after modifying the code w/another theme’s: http://mjfilbeck.com/wp-scrnshots/scrnshot.matalamodified.jpg.
I know it’s a theme issue bc every other theme works fine. I even found this link: http://themes.svn.wordpress.org/matala/ with all of the revision history for the theme and tried to ‘go back in time’ by copy/pasting all of the coding, file by file into the theme files on my server; I did this for each revision history, with no luck. Revision v’s 1.0 & 1.1 did alter the rendering, but not to anything better.
Sorry if all of this long or windy, but wanted you to have all of the details. I’m at a loss. I know the quick answer is switch themes, but this is the one I want and already began my marketing around… I used it as a template for creating my email marketing, ebay/etsy store styles, business cards, etc… In the meantime, I have switched my theme over so at least my site will be visible. If you need me to switch it back to Matala let me know. I’m not super savvy about coding and the like, but can follow directions quite well, so let me know if you need more from me.
Thanks in advance!!
