      Jetpack sharedaddy 

      hi Marc,
      I have been corresponding with Jetpack because there is one issue with the Sharedaddy share menu that I can not resolve. He asked me to temporarily switch to the twenty-sixteen theme to see if the issue still happened in another theme and it did not. I am hoping you can help me resolve them.

      When someone links to a post, the sharedaddy icons become 5 times their size, and move to the left hand side of the past. This did not happen when I switched to the twenty-sixteen theme. The icons where the same on a post page and on a linked-to page.
      http://knitgrandeur.com/2016/08/fit-to-be-tied.html/ .(BTW, thank you for helping me get all my sharedaddy icons in one row yesterday!!!!)
      thank you

        Hi @knitgrandeur,

        as I mentioned before, this is the default behavior by the theme. Please understand that we cannot provide help for individual customizations in the forum.

        To style the icons differently you can use custom CSS code.

        Best,
        Marc

        Weta sharedaddy menu 

        hi Marc,
        I am still having severe problems with the sharedaddy share menu. In your last response to me you say, ” As you can see here http://themes.elmastudio.de/weta/blog/ and here http://themes.elmastudio.de/weta/2015/09/02/why-i-love-reading/ , the different style and position of the sharing buttons is a design decision and depend on whether the blog page…”

        However, all your sharedaddy buttons are lined up in one row. My sharedaddy menu is collapsed, with a “more” option to click in order to access the share buttons. This is also not the look I want for my blog. http://knitgrandeur.com/ or http://knitgrandeur.com/2016/08/fit-to-be-tied.html/

        How do I make the sharedaddy buttons look as they do in your demo http://themes.elmastudio.de/weta/blog/ ? I want an expanded share menu as you show in your demo.
        thank you for your help

          Hi @knitgrandeur,

          you actively decided to hide the icons behind a share button. As you can see on the second image on this page, you can choose whether to display the icons directly or behind a collapsed menu.

          Best,
          Marc

            Thank you Marc, this is very helpful. However, when I go to the settings>sharing, I am not getting an option to un-choose the display behind a collapsed menu is. Can you help me with this?

        Weta Cihild, Footer disappears when you link to a post 

        Hello Marc,
        I am having some discrepancies when I link to a post via the title of the post or when I scroll through the blog using the “previous post” and “next post” option.
        Here are the 2 different links to the same page. First is using the previous page option, second is linking to the page from the title
        Option 1. http://knitgrandeur.com/page/2/
        Option 2. http://knitgrandeur.com/2016/08/argyles-too.html/

        With option 1, the comments box is not visible, nor are the related posts.

        With option 2, the footer area and footer menu disappear but the social share icon enlarges 3x its size and moves to the left side (it is set to the right side in CSS). However, the comments box is visible, and so are the related posts.

        Why is this happening and how do I prevent this inconsistency from happening?

          Hi @knitgrandeur,

          option 1 only displays the second page of your posts page, which only displays a list of recent posts, based on the settings made in your dashboard at Settings -> Reading -> Blog pages show at most.

          Option 2 on the other hand directly displays the single post page, which uses another template and therefore displays the comments box.

          Currently I can’t spot any related posts. Since WordPress or Weta don’t provide related post functionality, I guess they are being added by Jetpack or another plugin. The authors of those can help with possible settings or changes.

          As you can see here http://themes.elmastudio.de/weta/blog/ and here http://themes.elmastudio.de/weta/2015/09/02/why-i-love-reading/ , the different style and position of the sharing buttons is a design decision and depend on whether the blog page or the single post page is being displayed.

          Best,
          Marc

        Weta Child theme font color and size 

        hi,
        Can you please let me know what the Weta theme default post paragraph font color and size and the theme “image caption” font color and size.

        I imported all my blogger posts into my WP blog and would like them to take on the theme font attributes but can’t figure out what they are.

        Thanks.

          Hi @knitgrandeur,

          you can use your browser’s CSS tool to check the used default properties on the Weta-Demo. A right (alternative) click on an element and a click on “element information”, “inspect element” or something like that will open the tool and display the used CSS code for this specific element.

          Best,
          Marc

            Dear Marc,
            I am using a plugin for the font size and want to write it into the CSS: right clicking to inspect element does not give me the default theme info. I also forgot to mention that I am using the Weta Child theme so I don’t believe I have access to the CSS tool.

          Weta Theme- Omitting featured image on blogpost page 

          hello,
          How do I omit the featured image on the blog post page? I thought when I set up the theme, I opted out of a feature image. I now have duplicate images on each blog post page.

          This is a sandbox version of my blog. The first image on each post is being duplicated and acting like a feature image.
          http://knitgrandeur.com/sandbox/

          thank you

            Hi @knitgrandeur,

            you can activate the “Hide Featured Image on single posts” option in your dashboard at Appearance -> Customize -> Theme Options. If you don’t want to use a featured image at all, you can remove the featured image from your posts. To hide all featured images, you can use the following additional CSS code:

            .entry-thumbnail {
            	display: none;
            }
            

            The following code will hide the images on your blog page only:

            .blog .entry-thumbnail {
            	display: none;
            }
            

            Best,
            Marc

              Thank you very much Marc. The hide featured image option in theme options did not work. Not sure why. However, the CSS code did.
              Thank you again!!

              Weta Small Logo in Theme Options 

              Hello,
              I am using the Weta Child theme. When I was using the parent theme , I added the link to a small logo in theme options. Now that I am in the Child theme, the logo is no longer visible. I added the link to theme options again, but the small logo still does not show. Is this because I now have a fixed Header Menu?
              http://knitgrandeur.com/

              Is there any way to get the small logo to show?

                Hi @knitgrandeur,

                the small logo image will only be displayed with active fixed menu option while you’re scrolled down on a page, which means that your original header image isn’t visible anymore.

              weta default 660 pixel image 

              hi,
              Your weta documentation states images have a default 660 pixel width, “Default featured image: 660 + flexible height”. I just created a test post for my front page using image URLs (this is the fastest way for me to create posts), and all the images are maintaining their original sizes. I was under the impression from the documentation that they would be fixed at 660 pixels.

              I did not publicize the post because it was just a test, so there is not link to the post. knitgrandeur.com
              thanks

                Hi @knitgrandeur,

                If I understand you correctly you’ve added images to your post using direct URLs to the image? The creation of different image size can only be done by WordPress if you are uploading the image to the media library. Placing images by URL will always display the original image file, the URL points to.

                The documentation in this case refers to featured images. You can select one featured image per post, which will be used for example in Weta’s recent post widgets.

                Best,
                Marc

                  hi Marc,
                  In Blogger CCS, I have added the below.

                  .post-body img {
                  width: 600px;
                  height: auto;
                  }

                  I assumed that this is what was meant by “default featured image: 660 + flexible height”.

                    Hi @knitgrandeur,

                    “default featured image: 660 + flexible height” means that your images will be scaled in width to 660 pixels (if they have at least this width). “Flexible height” means that they won’t be cropped, since the theme doesn’t need a fixed aspect ratio on single post pages. But again, this only affects the featured image, ignoring the images you placed directly into your post. The images in your post can be scaled by using additional CSS code, like the code you provided above.

                    Best,
                    Marc

                  Hi @knitgrandeur,

                  Weta uses the Genericons font for the social icons. You would use a heart symbol for Bloglovin’, right? In this case you can use the following additional CSS code to display a heart symbol for Bloglovin’ URLs, provided the URLs end with “bloglovin.com”.

                  .menu-social-container .menu li a[href*="bloglovin.com"]::before, .social-nav ul li a[href*="bloglovin.com"]::before      {content: '\f461';}

                hello,
                A couple of questions:

                1. The tool tips for my social link buttons are not showing even though I have added the navigational label for each one . Here is a link to the site.
                http://knitgrandeur.com/
                How do I fix this?

                2. I would like my main menu to appear in the top header area only. The primary menu location is unchecked, so why is it showing up in both areas? Currently I have it showing in both areas, but I would like it to appear as a top header menu only?

                thank you

                  Hi @knitgrandeur,

                  1) while editing your menu, please open the “Screen Options” on top of the screen and activate “Title Attribute”. Now you can fill out the title of your menu entries, which will appear as tool tip in some browsers.

                  2) Please create an empty menu and place it at the primary location, otherwise it’ll be filled by a default menu provided by WordPress itself.

                  Best,
                  Marc

                    Hi @knitgrandeur,

                    Weta doesn’t provide a share button widget. You can activate the Weta JetPack share buttons in your dashboard at Appearance -> Customize -> Theme Options. This setting will replace the JetPack buttons provided by the Sharing feature of the plugin.

                    To include social media icons in your sidebar, you can follow the instructions in the Weta documentation.
