    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, Thank you for the wonderful format. Is it possible to remove the tag cloud at the bottom of articles? I find it unsightly.

      Hi! Just want to say, great great job on the theme. As I am customizing it, can I ask you how do I change the font size of the sidebars and the color of the green square infront of a list?
      That would be very helpful,

      Thanks for a great theme.

      I am going to use Vina for a BBQ products catalog so the home page is perfect for my “Featured Products” page with brief description and image.

      The one thing I wanted to do was change the header image size to make it a bit deeper and searched everywhere to find how to do this.

      Finally I found a hint (and lots of other good advice) in the comments discussions.

      To add some depth to your header image go to functions php (I’ve changed mine to 300px high from 150px) and edit ‘HEIGHT’:

      //* HEAD
      define(‘HEADER_IMAGE’, ‘%s/images/header.jpg’); // %s is theme dir uri
      define(‘HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH’, 960);
      define(‘HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT’, 300);
      define(‘HEADER_TEXTCOLOR’, ‘FFF’);

      I thought to add this comment to save others some time.


    5. Sticky post

      Hi, I downloaed your theme and is perfect for my site, but there is a big problem (for me) the sticky post doesn’t function! I simply want the same post always on front page and in first position…
      But the option in post screen doesn’t function, could you give me an advice?
      thank you

      I LOVE the Vina theme. HOWEVER, I’m trying to insert a 960 pixel wide pic into a page, and it keeps squishing the photo to about half its size and placing it on the left side of the page.

      Anyway to disable this?

      • WPGPL Team

        Any Screenshot about your problem?

        • Graham

          Sure, I’ve tried making the image ~900 px wide, just in case the width was causing this, but no luck.


        • Graham

          I was also wondering if there’s a way for me to make a page template that will let me control everything between the header and footer.
