      Hi, I’m trying to figure out the following but can’t seem to find a solution. I want my bloglovin page to show the first image of my blogpost. Therefore I need pictures in my rss feed because blogloving picks up from the feed. I tried several plugins and codes in the childtheme but it just doesn’t work. My site: somewheresomethingblog.com
      My feed: somewheresomethingblog.com/feed
      I hope somebody can help me! Thanks a lot and have a good sunday everybody!

        Social media links open in new window 


        I’m trying to find the tickbox in the widget area where you can mark to open the social media links in a new window. I can’t seem to find it!

        Thanks for your help!

          @admin: Hello, unfortunately there is no easy option to activate this. Usually your site visitor should decide, where to open a link (same window, new window, new tab), but you could force this behavior by editing the widgets.php in your theme folder within the inc-directory. This code

          				echo '<li><a href="'.esc_url( $twitter ).'" class="twitter" title="' . __( 'Twitter', 'namba' ) . '">' . __( 'Twitter', 'namba' ) . '</a></li>';

          could be altered to:

          				echo '<li><a href="'.esc_url( $twitter ).'" class="twitter" title="' . __( 'Twitter', 'namba' ) . '" target="_blank">' . __( 'Twitter', 'namba' ) . '</a></li>';

          Too many white space between title and article – Namba Theme 


          Just wanted to say I am very happy with the beautiful Namba theme, my compliments for the design! My blog is starting to look more and more how I want it too look but here are 2 things I can’t figure out. I hope you have a simple solution for it..
          1. When I post something on my blog (http://www.somewheresomethingblog.com/) there’s a lot of white space between the title and the article itself. I want to reduce the white space, is this possible?

          2. When I place an article or gallery the Date and Title are on top of the post. But when I place an image or video there’s no title and the date is below the image or video. Why is this? Can’t this all be the same (title + date on top)?

          Thanks for your help!

            @admin: Hi, you adjust any white space with CSS. With the following CSS code you can reduce the space below the entry title:

            .entry-header h1.entry-title, .page .entry-header h1.entry-title, .sticky .entry-header h2.entry-title {
            padding-bottom: 0px;

            The different post formats are displayed differently on purpose. You’d need to edit the theme files (content-image.php for example) to change that behavior. Please understand that we can not support theme customizations in the forum.

              Hi Marc, ok thank you very much I will try this!
              I totally understand that you don’t support theme customizations.

            After installing child theme my social media buttons do not display well! 


            I just installed my child theme tonight and something went totally wrong, the whole blog was messed up after it. So I copied the total original style sheet from the Waipoua theme (I no that’s not good to do but for now it was the only solution I could think of). It al seemed to look good but I just noticed I lost the text in the social media buttons in my sidebar. So now you only see 5 grey circles, without F (facebook), T (twitter) etc…. I can’t sort out where this is coming from. Hope anybody can help. Thanks! Blog: http://www.someweresomething.com/

                Dear Femke,

                what space do you mean? It looks perfectly fine on my side.

                  When you see my post about the Hong Cubicle appartments for example, I think there’s too many white space between the pictures. I’d like them it to be a bit more narrow.. Hope you can help!

                Adjust text/post width in blog post (Waipoua theme) 


                I recently bought a new theme on the site (Waipoua) and I’m still adjusting it. As I am not a wordpress expert, I’m allready very happy with the result. I love the theme, it’s fresh and simple. The thing that I still would like to adjust but can not seem to find is the text width (or the whole post width) in a blog post.
                I have been searching for a while now but I can’t seem to find it in the css!
                Can you maybe help me and tell me where to look? My site: http://www.someweresomething.com

                  Dear Femke,

                  the only section / div I can find that shows a width value, is the “content-wrap” in line 2728 of the style.css. “width:68.46846846846847%;”. And that makes sense.

                  When I change the width value, I see a wider or smaller blog post area as a result.
                  I do not know why this exact value has been chosen though. So give it a try and adjust the sidebar’s width too, if necessary. And keep the original values in mind! ;-)

                  Looking forward to finding out if this helps.

                  Best regards

                    Dear Mark,

                    Thanks, you helped me out there! :)

                    The only thing I’m questioning is the following:
                    Some people say it’s not smart to make changes
                    in your ccs style sheet but in a child version,
                    because it’s tricky when there is an update.

                    I don’t have a lot of knowledge about this,
                    so maybe you can give me some advice about this?

                    Thank you so much!

                    Best, Femke

                      Hallo Femke,

                      I picked up these information from the Elma side. Unfortunately these are not availabel in English. ( Ellen, please correct me if I’m wrong)

                      To create a child theme, you firstly have to create a new folder and name it according to the main theme, e.g. waipoua-child.
                      The child theme folder needs to be put on the same level as all other themes, thus in “wp-content/themes”. (The parent theme of course needs to be available as well. )

                      In the new child theme folder you create a new file called style.css

                      Then open the new style.css file and add the following code:

                      Theme Name: Waipoua Child
                      Theme URI: http: //www.yourdomainname.com/
                      Description: Child Theme for the Yoko theme
                      Author: Your name
                      Author URI: http: //www.yourdomainname.com/
                      Template: waipoua
                      Version: 1.0

                      After you have done this and saved the file, you can open your WordPress administration and the child theme should already be available. You can find it under “Design”, where it can be activated.

                      Next you copy the styles you want to change from your main style.css and paste them into your child style.css and modify these according to your requirements.
                      As far as I understand, the child’s style.css style will overrule the information within the main style.css styles.

                      THus, this should be pretty easy.

                      Laat mij maar weten of het lukt. Ik praat een klijn beetje Nederlands, omdat ik in Emmerik, vlak bij de grens, woon. :-)

                      Fijn weekend en de groeten

                        Hi Mark,

                        Just placed the childtheme….it all seemed to be going very easy and well…
                        But then I looked at my blog and it was all screwed up! OOPS!
                        So now I came up with a temporary solution – I think – I copied the whole css stylesheet from Waipoua into the child theme. I know this is not really smart but at least my blog now looks like it should be looking… Wonder what I should do… But anyway; thanks for your help!
