Support » Theme: Parabola » Title BG Colour / Bespoke Taxonomies / Navigation Buttons

  • Hi all

    I have recently installed the Parabola theme on my website and I’ve got it mostly working the way I want, but have a few (hopefully straightforward) questions:

    01 – How do you change the colour of the background of the ‘Title’ text (which appears with mouse-over) for the Presentation Columns?
    (Currently white)

    02 – On my previous (child) theme, I added code for bespoke taxonomies in the functions.php file, but this doesn’t seem to work Parabola. Which PHP file should I added the code to?
    Code I was using is:

    // Add bespoke taxonomies
    add_action( 'init', 'create_my_taxonomies', 0 );
    function create_my_taxonomies() {
    	register_taxonomy( 'artist', 'post', array( 'hierarchical' => false, 'label' => 'Artist', 'query_var' => true, 'rewrite' => true ) );
    	register_taxonomy( 'genre', 'post', array( 'hierarchical' => false, 'label' => 'Genre', 'query_var' => true, 'rewrite' => true ) );
    	register_taxonomy( 'year', 'post', array( 'hierarchical' => false, 'label' => 'Year Released', 'query_var' => true, 'rewrite' => true ) );

    03 – If I view a Category page (eg. at the bottom there are 1 2 3 etc buttons to navigate to older posts. On the presentation page I have “Show Posts” enabled but these navigation buttons are missing. Any ideas how I add them?

  • I appreciate that I asked 3 questions in 1 post but I hoped they wouldn’t be that difficult to resolve!

    Anyone have any suggestions for any of them?

    You could try the developer’s dedicated forums here:


    1. That colour is the same as the Content Background colour.

    2. That should just work. The theme does not mess around with taxonomies in any way.
    Make sure you are placing the code in the correct file (functions.php in the root of the child theme), that the code is correct and wrapped by php tags.
    You could also test things out with some “echo”s and see if that block of code gets executed.

    3. The navigation is not supposed to be displayed on the presentation page. The presentation page offers the possibility to display the latest X posts in it. It is not a blog page to have pagination.
    What would “presentation page 2” contain? The presentation page followed by page 2 of posts below or page 2 of the blog page instead (if one exists)…
