“All themes may not work in the same way. Business Line has one sidebar scope for all pages which is applicable for all the pages, posts etc. You may find some plugins which can control the way how widgets will be shown in different pages.”
Right.. so I was right.. after all the time wasting. The theme cannot in it’s current configuration achieve what I want. My time has been wasted because had Business Line been properly compared to Twenty Fourteen in the first post I made, the same conclusion would have been arrived at earlier – and my time not wasted, with elementary superficial responses.
I can’t find your last response telling me to ‘select the red marked option’
I’ve now tried all combinations on that page and on Widgets controls in WordPress.
I cannot achieve in one setting:
1. No widgets on Home Page – AND –
2. Widgets on individual Posts
[As is achievable on the WordPress Twenty Fourteen theme].
If there is a way to achieve what I want in the CURRENT (unmodified) theme version, then please spell it out.
All that does is obliterate the sidebar. Have you actually checked the issue at all?
Obliterating the sidebar means that I cannot have widgets on the Home page AND no widgets on Post pages (as is possible in Twenty Fourteen).
And just to be clear I am using the Widgets controls outside of the theme as well – but that does not help.
Yes – I should have said I did all that and that I’m quite adept at configuring WordPress and you theme.
I’m not interested in Full Layout or Full Width Template.
The problem remains the same as described. Kindly look at it.
“We think you are creative to do that.”
You thought right.
That solution is elementary. It amounts to manually attaching an image to a post, which is not a favoured method of using WordPress. I’m expecting you to disagree, but it won’t change the facts of what is observed.
The reality is that a method of
1. extracting an image in a post, and
2. making that image a featured image, without it appearing duplicated –
ought to be scripted, or a script generate to achieve what I and others will come to need.
In the current configuration, it seems to mean that anyone using these features cannot expect the first image (or be able to select one of many in a post) to be featured without a duplicate being seen on viewing the actual post, unless that image is added separately and manually as a featured image. I don’t know why all that is something you would want as developers.
I would have thought an efficient method of achieveing what I’m looking for would be better for your NewsPress theme, and for your business. It’s either it can be done or it’s impossible. I hope it’s not the latter.
Sure… that’s elementary. Done that already. And as it is at the moment, the image in the post doesn’t show up in the slider. See screenshot below.
Look at your demo site here:
When I clik on that I get this:
All I’m trying to do is to get the image in the post to be:
a) a single image in the post, and
b) image to show up in the slider
I can’t seem to work out which settings will achieve both (a) and (b) like on your demo site. Once I check “Show in Front Page Heading Slider”, the post shows up in the slider without the image from the post (unlike that at your demo site).
That’s what I did and get the captioneed problematic result (tried all combinations even with new posts). [You have admin privileges to my site (in my last ticket) check if you need]
Also I can’t figure why I’m getting duplicate images in posts. See screenshot below. I have tried different combinations of settings – does not help. The only thing that works is to delete the featured image from each post, but then it does not turn up in the slider.
Cool and thanks.. now to get that (and more) into a tutorial like D5 has done for the other themes. YouTube is good = good for business too. 🙂
