Thank you very much, i am trying to figure out what is the right thing for me to do according to options available. I appreciate your guys kind support.April 4, 2015 at 5:48 am in reply to: Categories styling #146636
Well, maybe it is a matter of personal preference, but i was looking for more standard look of the links to "more content" the Categories suppose to represent.
Instead, in Metro Pro Theme i chose, categories and tags are appearing in pale grey font color, in very tiny letters, lumped together too closely, in an alphabetical order, and in all upper case capital letters.
I would prefer Categores/ Tags be in the same size font the content is, in clearly visible color and clearly a link (blue, not pale grey), properly capitalized the usual way (not in all upper case caps).
Relevant content links can be in order of most importance to the user (not alphabet). That is what i need.March 28, 2015 at 7:42 am in reply to: Categories and Tags on Attachment posts. #145936
Yes, i am sensing there is no other way... so i probably will end up using one of the plugins which can assign categories/tags to media and see which of them can display those categories and tags on the Attachment posts.
No, i was not referring to usual categories and tags that are usually used for regular posts with or without images.
I appreciate your help. Thank you.March 28, 2015 at 1:21 am in reply to: Categories and Tags on Attachment posts. #145924
I appreciate your help, Davinder. Do you also know how to make the categories and tags to display on Attachment posts? Thank you in advance.March 27, 2015 at 5:01 pm in reply to: How to stop attachment posts being generated #145886
that article says: "Only preventing measure you can take is to makes sure, “attachment post URL” option is NOT selected while insert images into a post. Besides this, there is no option to disable creation of dedicated image attachment pages."
No, that is not true, unfortunately, it's NOT a preventing measure at all. The attachment post is created just the same regardless if you choose the options you recommend. That option is simply where you choose what will it link to when your image in the original post is being clicked on.
For example, when creating my posts, I did not select "attachment post URL", i selected "file URL", just like your article recommends to do. But WP still forced the attachment page being created. That's the problem. So that is NOT an opinion to disable creation of attachment post at all.
About the redirect, it will not work for me unfortunately. I understand that from SEO point it does make some better sense to do what you outlined in your article as it will stop search engines from indexing; but still, a redirect is slowing loading time and is not best for user experience, so it still would be better to figure out how to stop the attachment posts being generated, instead of redirecting.
But also, the 301 redirect is not solving the problem of my hosting server being overloaded with so many duplicate spam pages aka "attachment posts",
so, instead of 301 redirect, if possible, i would like to implement some coding adjustments, or something. To stop the attachment pages from being automatically generated in the first place.
Do you know how to do that? Thank you in advance.March 18, 2015 at 7:19 pm in reply to: How to change WP-conent/uploads media URL structure? #144888
Creating a new folder in FTP, and then adding a new line of code to wp-config.php
I wonder if it will be broken by future WP updates?March 18, 2015 at 5:15 am in reply to: How to change WP-conent/uploads media URL structure? #144816
Thank you Christoph...
the last link seem to offer a viable solution of creating a new folder instead of wp-content/uploads, and using in for media uploads.
So i created a new folder called pictures, and now i need to make my site to store my media uploads in it.
Next, the instruction says: Open the WordPress wp-config.php file, and then add the following code after require_once(ABSPATH.'wp-settings.php'); declaration.
Is it the right way to do it in the Genesis child theme too? I am using MetroPro.March 7, 2015 at 7:38 am in reply to: Do I Need A Child Theme? #143571
Hi, Braddalton, thank you for enlightening me.
I see you have a site that provides help and support to the genesis child themes? I am not sure what exactly "PHP coding" means but do you guys also support new site owners in whatever various questions they have while setting up their new wordpress sites using genesis pro themes?
Awaiting your reply.
Thank you.March 7, 2015 at 6:22 am in reply to: Do I Need A Child Theme? #143568
Guys, as far as i understood the discussion above, i don't need to create a child theme for any of the Pro Plus package themes because they all already function as child themes, yes??
So what happens when not the genesis framework, bu the Theme from the Pro Plus package that i chose to use on my site, gets updated? do i lose my customizations after the update?
Thank you!June 28, 2013 at 12:21 am in reply to: Should the Home Page URL be named /index? #48181
Well, as i used that Yoast Redirect Generator tool from their http://yoast.com/change-wordpress-permalink-structure/ , it gave me only one line of code i had to upload to my .htaccess file. In my case the code was:
RedirectMatch 301 ^/([^/]+).html$ http://www.healing-fibroids.com/$1
A single line of code for all pages redirect, so i cannot delete one /index page redirect.
It's the same problem for my other site on which i too did not have /index page ...
Thank you very much for looking into it anyway...June 27, 2013 at 11:29 pm in reply to: Should the Home Page URL be named /index? #48175
Yes, i understand, thank you for answering 🙂
It is not Yoast SEO plugin, i do not use it, so it is not Yoast SEO related. That link to Yoast site is their 301 redirect code generator tool somebody just posted here in these forums. I am assuming Yoast made it for generating a standard 301 redirect code, and on both my sites it generates error 404 for my Front Home Page only.
Still cannot figure out how to resolve this Front Home Page redirect error issue, or where to ask 🙁June 27, 2013 at 8:00 pm in reply to: Should the Home Page URL be named /index? #48153
Yes, but to choose any static page as my Front Home Page, i first need to create it.
So i need to enter something (any name) in the title field (which then automatically becomes a part of the URL), when i create the first static page. And then i will have to publish it, and choose as my front HomePage.
I know that Front Home Page will work with any name, but i am afraid it could create problems down the road? For example, on one of my sites, all pages but Home Page redirect perfectly through Yoast Redirect generated code http://yoast.com/change-wordpress-permalink-structure/ i uploaded to my .htaccess file.
The HomePage however only redirects to /index page which i don't even have on my site and so the Front Home Page ends in error.
So i was wondering if how i name the page which i then choose as my Front Home Page matters?
Thank you.June 27, 2013 at 6:58 pm in reply to: how to make URL various extentions? #48143
Thank you so very much, i appreciate it.
All pages but one redirect like magic.
The only page that does not want to redirect now is Homepage. (probably because my homepage was not called index?)
How do i make my homepage redirect properly, i wonder.June 26, 2013 at 9:13 pm in reply to: Change the Full Width Template's Width – How to? #47953
Wow thank you.
Would that change the width only on some pages, or on all pages that use the full-width template? (i need only on some).June 26, 2013 at 9:07 pm in reply to: Old Forum going away July 1st : -( #47949
The old forums is a valuable piece of content indeed. Maybe if it is expensive to keep, it could be monetized (with ads or something), but just throwing it away seems rather a loss.June 26, 2013 at 6:11 pm in reply to: Slash in the end of URL creates duplicate pages? #47896
Thank you so very much, Blogjunkie. It was most helpful and now my slashless URLs look so much prettier (what a great boost to my work motivation).
As for .htaccess file, (you guessed it right, i have no idea what it means and what am i doing, but) i already redirect all my indexed pages as they all used to have www. preffixes and .html extensions. So each redirect command in my .htaccess looks like this (is this the correct way?):
redirect 301 /fibroid-surgery.html http://healing-fibroids.com/fibroid-surgeryJune 15, 2013 at 5:57 pm in reply to: sitemap.xml on Genesis themes #46200
awe.. so here i am... being happy that now, as i bought the premium themes, i don't have to install Yoast and other plugins on other plugins which keep asking me to update manually like every other day and send me other distractive notices lol
May i ask you for a bit of elaboration: who is taking what kind of resources from me with the sitemap.xml? (i am sorry i am not an native speaker. Having troubles understanding this issue clearly).
Thank you, i appreciate it.June 15, 2013 at 3:57 pm in reply to: sitemap.xml on Genesis themes #46169
Thank you for answering me, Braddalton.
Ouch, i never heard of it. May i ask you what problems do sitemaps cause?June 15, 2013 at 3:20 am in reply to: How to make Aparrition images round? #46032
Ah, got it, the image needs to be set as "Featured image" on the page editor.June 15, 2013 at 3:04 am in reply to: Mobile responsive Header in Prose theme woun't scale (shrink) #46029
