    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.

      Nice theme but it doesn’t show the “thumbnail”. Does not work.

      Where in the code did you implement ads to appear on right side of comment pages? Also, I noticed that the main article on home page is an excerpt that continues on interior page, how is this done?

      I have been very impressed with this theme however it is not very ad friendly.

      Modern Hippie,
      I can answer the excerpt question: there is an icon on the toolbar – you should have two lines of icons (bold, underline, italics, etc.) One of them is called “insert more tag”. You just click it and decide where you want the excerpt to break. You’ll see “read more” or continue or something like that. It looks like a skinny box with a broken line and then a square box. It’s right next to my spell check icon. If you can’t see all of your icons, click “show/hide kitchen sink. I experimented with each button to find out what I was missing. Have fun with your “read more” tool!

      Hi…love the theme. I would love to be able to use the following plug-in (http://nicasiodesign.com/blog/wordpress-plugins/our-first-public-wordpress-plugin-dynamic-headers/), or something like it, so that the header image can be different on different pages of my website. Is this possible? If so, where should I drop the suggested code in the header to make it possible? thanks!!

        To make this plugin work on your blog. You need to edit it on header.php file on Vina theme

      Hi, I like vina very much and it’s really beautiful. However I met 2 questions when using it:

      1. How to manage the picture pixel when it was automatically grasped by the theme? I found the picture appearing in homepage is too big or not the middle so it’s blur.

      2. WHen I add the widgets, they were one by one listed in the end of the page, not in one row, which makes my page looks too long. HOw to solve it?

      THanks,

      Instead of answering all of the e-mails indivually, I figured I would just address everyone here.

      I really appreciate that so many people have e-mailed me to say how much they like the way my site looks. However, to answer all of the questions, I am sorry to say that I have little to no computer language skills.

      I spent one weekend using trial and error to make everything work until I got it to look like I wanted.

      The good news is that if I can do it, 99% of the people who post here can. I’m a writer, not a computer guy. And, as they say, what has been done, can be done.

      If you really can’t figure it out, and you have tried everything, let me know. I’ll do what I can.

      Sean

      PS: Regarding post 25, if I understand your problem correctly, you need to copy and add /wp-admin/widgets.php to the end of your web page when signed it. Where it say, “sidebar left,” etc., that’s for the bottom of the page. If you split up your widgets among the different sidebars, they should even out. Look at the bottom of my home page (www.itsjustmovies.com) to see if that’s what you are trying to do.

      Jauhari,
      How do I change the wording so that when there are No Comments, it says “add comment” instead?

      I notice that you have “no speaks” on yours. Where did you make that change?

      Thank you,

        Juahari,
        Thank you for the answer – to change something in comments.php but it’s not clear to me…
        To change the wording in appearance – editor – comments.php, which line do I change?

        comment_status) : ?>

        It’s not so easy for me to see where to change it. Maybe I should leave it alone! :)

      Studied the whole site wpgpl.com for 3 days. And finally used it for my personal blog at http://blog.ekendraonline.com .
      This is because I was having problem with many other themes that I used.

      Vina is a wonder theme. However, still some tweaks are missing. Specially the link colors and widgets, it’s not ad friendly.

      Hope future release of Vina will address much more.
      Thanks.

      First off, what an awesome theme! I’ve got a few questions for you though. I’m having a problem with the front page, some of the block post are missing. How do I fix that?

      My second question is, how can I change the color of the heading for each post. Currently they are black titles, I would like them to be a blueish color.

      If you go to my site, you’ll see clearly what I’m talking about. I’ve managed to change the main post tile to the blue I like.

      Please help, thanks in advance!

      Hi,

      I am using this theme and I love it, it’s so simple to use so thank you for designing it! I am wondering, however, can you somehow remove one category from appearing on the main page, but still have the link to it in the menu bar under the header? If you look at my site I am trying to do this with the ‘trailers’ category.

      The auto-resizing is not working for the thumbnails on my home page. Could you, step by step, please explain how to fix this? Thanks

      Juahari,
      I’m running a contest for 6 weeks and I expect to receive a lot of comments. I installed Intense Debate (a WP plug-in). I loved it! It shrunk the comments and took up less room in the sidebar. However, it TOOK OVER the entire column and overlaid on top of everything that was previously there. Like a blanket, it covered everything in the entire column up. I uninstalled it.

      How do I move the comments so they line up like yours. Move the comment code to page.php or style sheet? Maybe I’ll try it. Uh oh. Better copy all the code before I mess with anything. Wish me luck.
      Thanks,
      Cheryl

        What I meant to say was, how do I get the comments underneath the post like this instead of along the side?

          Juahari,
          I added the following text to the end of my post when asking for comments because 5 (five) people have told me all they see is an empty white box below my post (right column is longer than post sometimes) and they don’t know how / where to leave a comment. It’s because they are used to seeing comments below the post not over on the side so they don’t even look.

          “Please share your thoughts in the comments section (located to the right of this post, not underneath like most blogs).”

          Should I move the comment text from “Comments” to “Single Post”? If so, exactly where should I paste it?
          Thanks,
          Cheryl

            Sorry – forgot to leave the link so you can see what I mean:

            http://thatgirlisfunny.com/2009/10/51-must-know-habits-for-staying-young-%E2%80%93-from-the-inside-out/

            Two people told me (TODAY) they couldn’t find the comments even though there are (7) seven comments displayed in the right-hand column. :(

            I want to make it easier for people who are rushing or not paying attention.

            Thank you,

              Juahari,
              I’ve moved the blank comment box underneath (yay!) but how do I get live comments underneath (like yours)? I copied and pasted all of the code related to comments to the single post page, but live comments aren’t showing up underneath. Is there something easy for me to do?
              Thank you!
              Cheryl

              this is the link to the page that is causing this question. I’m running a give-away and asking people to leave comments. I’d like the comments to be underneath – for some reason, people are telling me they can’t find the comments – I think it’s because they’re not used to looking for them on the side.
              http://thatgirlisfunny.com/2009/10/51-must-know-habits-for-staying-young-%E2%80%93-from-the-inside-out/

              Whatever the reason, I hope moving comments below resolves the issue. Please respond! Thank you!

      I’ve been editing my site via Firefox on a Macbook, and I recently discovered, when viewing the page using IE on a PC, that the comments do not align correctly. The entire page shifts over, and the comments become jumbled. Do you have an advice on how to fix this?
