Support » Themes and Templates » Two customization questions regarding the tag template

  • I use tags to create lists of observations and insights and quotes by topic. An example is http://recursos.giffmex.org/blog/?tag=virtud/ I have two questions that if answered could help me with how I display these pages:

    1. Is there a way to adjust the CSS for the font-size and font-weight of the title that gets generated by the tag template? (in the case of the link above, the title is ‘Tema: Virtud’)

    2. Is there a way to display the posts in the tag template alphabetically rather than by date?

    Thanks in advance for any help you all can give me.

    That part is in h1 tag and it should be displayed big but your theme style.css had been edited directly and tt has this h1 14px on line 58, while the original theme (same version being used on your site) had this h1 30px.

    It’s better to keep all theme files untouched and only make changes via child theme, or Custom CSS plugin, so that we can get update and never worry about losing all the customizations.

    Please consider doing this: make a full site backup first, switch to other theme (maybe one of the WP default themes), delete your current theme (Sempress), install the latest version of Sempress Theme and activate it, install a Custom CSS plugin and only put in additional CSS there.

    2. Is there a way to display the posts in the tag template alphabetically rather than by date?

    There is this info in the codex that you might find useful
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Alphabetizing_Posts

    Also, depending on the amount of posts wanted to display alphabetically, try one of these Custom Post Order plugins
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=order+post

    For the plugin, my suggestion is to tag (or categorize) all posts that wanted to display alphabetically, so that it’s easier to manage posts on the admin side because there could be also posts that’s wanted to display normally.

    Thanks Paul

    Actually, my changes to Sempress theme also include changes to other files besides the CSS. Unfortunately I didn’t keep good notes as I went.

    I will try to create the child theme (no experience doing that yet) on Saturday when I have time to fiddle with it. For now I switched the CSS back to 30px for h1. Not even sure why I changed that.

    On Saturday I will also experiment with the alphabetizing posts solutions you mentioned. I had found some things, but they all focused on categories, not on tags. Hopefully the links you sent me will turn up what I need.

    Thank you for your help! Blessings, Dave

    It’s my pleasure, Dave.

    BTW it seems the site has plain and simple minimalist kind of design, maybe it’s easier to work on basic theme (like WP default Twenty Sixteen), but anyway different thing works for different people. I wish you the best with your project.

    hmmm that twenty sixteen theme IS nice looking…may try it out…

    Yeah I got a few minutes to play with twenty sixteen. Think I better stick with sempress for what I am trying to do. Blessings!

    It’s all good, Dave.
