    Hi - a couple of questions I was hoping someone could help me with re the Polaroid theme. How do I delete the comments option from the bottom of posts? Also, how do I edit the menus at the bottom of my pages/posts? Thanks!

    Remove comments from posts

    I'm not entirely sure what you want to do with the menus, could you elaborate?

    Thanks so much! Re the menus, i want to change the list at the bottom so that it just reads:

    Say hello

    So I want to get rid of the topics 'categories', 'pages' 'archives' 'links' etc.

    No problem :)
    There are two possible solutions to that, I have a hunch that these three things are pages you've created in WordPress, correct?
    If that's the case, and you want it to add any more pages you might create in the future, then you can do the following:

    • On your computer, create a folder named "polaroids-child"
    • In this folder, create a file called "style.css". Open this in a text editor, then paste the following code:
      Theme Name: Polaroids Child
      Author: Your Name
      Description: Child theme
      Author URI: NA
      Template: polaroids
      @import url(../polaroids/style.css);
      #footermenu {
      font-family: "Times New Roman";
      font-size: 12px;
      font-weight: normal;
      letter-spacing: 2px;
      text-transform: uppercase;
      color: #111;
    • Now create a file called "footer.php" in the same folder
    • Add the following code:
      <div id="footer">
      <div id="footermenu">
      <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li='); ?>
      <?php wp_footer()?>
    • Save the two files
    • Send the folder to a zip archive
    • Upload it to your blog as a theme, and activate it

    It should all work!

    Thanks for sending this through, but I'm having issues with copying the info into the folder - I'm using text edit on a Mac, but no luck ... sorry, computer beginner here!

    I'm on Windows, so I can't really help regarding the Mac. I've done the above for you, so you just need to download it then upload it to your site.

    Hopefully, this should all work as expected :)

    Hi, since I've found this useful post, I'd like to ask you some help with the Polaroid Theme.
    More specifically, I would like to add the name of the author both at the beginning of the post (under the title of the post actually) AND on the polaroid, if possible.
    Moreover, I would like to know how to translate the date of the post from English into Italian (now it's September, while I'd like the month name to be in my language).
    Thank you for helping out!

    Bonjour, j' ai fait la manipulation indiqué ci dessus mais lorsque le fichier est envoyé sur mon serveur et que j'accède au tableau de bord de WordPress via mon site je ne trouve pas le moyen d' activer.

    Hello, I have been handling stated above, but when the file is sent to my server and I access the dashboard via WordPress http://www.matthieujoly.fr/ site I can not find the way to activate.

    As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic. Your problem - despite any similarity in symptoms - is likely to be completely different.
