    How To and FAQ / Vina instructions

    Many blogger ask the some question, and I tried to explain more clearly as I can do,

    No Image Problem?

    Vina is built in Auto Grabbed image, this code is searching image files on the content and display on the front page with TimThumb. But if you want using custom field, it’s easy just put you image url on custom field “thumbnail” (available on version 1.2 and newer) and the image will be used for image post in the front page, and if the post without any image, the auto grabbed image will be switch off 😉

    Change Custom Image Header

    To change default image header, go to Apperance > Custom Header and upload your own image.

      Hi. I like the theme and tried installing it. It seems to work out of the box, except how do you have it grab preview images? I don’t see any instructions with the theme. Thanks!

      • sammy

        I have the same problem! Please, please help!

      Does Vina grab the last uploaded image for the icon?

      • WPGPL Team

        Not for the icon, but for the image

        • Lavrai

          So, if Vina doesnt’ automatically grab the last uploaded image, how can I make sure there is a preview image shown on the front page for each post?

          Thank you.

      Why the fadeout of the title and meta-title when you move the mouse over the header?

      Except for that. Great looking theme with good features.

      I really like your theme. Can you tell me if it is possible to change the header image and if so how do you do it? This is my fisrt time using wordpress and want to make my personal blog using your theme and add a photo of me!
      Thanks for your help

      – why some pictures don’t appear in the front page like thumbnail?
      if I post with a picture, sometimes it works and some times not. how it works?
      thank you

      • cheryl ragsdale

        Hi, I love the theme except for the thumbnail image problem. Have you worked out a solution?

      Thank you for this theme! I searched over 400 different themes to find you! I do have one question though, I don’t have photos for every post, is there a way to delete the thumbnail pic option? Also, what are the dimensions for the thumbnail pic? I think maybe 245px x 200px? And is there a way to add “Authors” as a widget?

    9. Mike

      For some reason after activating this theme my site no longer loads in Firefox 3.5. At all. I did make some small tweaks, but nothing that would explain the issue. It works fine in Safari 4.0 and IE 8.0. Any ideas?

    11. Alon

      I can´t get the Vina theme to auto grab the pictures.
      Can somone please help me

      Nice theme….but if you want to sticky a post you need to change the following code in the Theme….go to APPREARANCE…EDITOR…then go to the MAIN INDEX TEMPLATE and change code on line 14 from ‘post__not_in’ => $sticky,
      ‘post__in’ => $sticky,

    13. børge

      I like this theme very much, except that I think the footer looks a bit too untidy. Also: I wish it would make thumbnails automatically like the theme Magazine Basic, and that it had a settings page in the admin area to change e.g. if the newest post shows the whole content or just an excerpt on the frontpage.

      One question: Does it support Intense Debate for the comments?

      • børge

        BTW: The settings page should also include a way to change the header image, or set it to auto rotate from a set of images.
