  • animazioni dei menu : che bello, si muove!
  • quickbar : come al solito ecco la nostra famosa barra con i links più utili sempre a portata di mouse

Shiword è un tema dall’aspetto hi-tech, che ricorda nelle fattezze numerosi prodotti multimediali portatili.

Nell’indice principale gli articoli sono presentati tramite le rispettive miniature – se presenti e se non sono state disattivate tramite le opzioni – ed il riassunto del contenuto.

Ad un primo sguardo si riconoscono elementi già presenti nel precedente tema Fastfood. In effetti Shiword ne è un diretto discendente, integrando quindi molti degli strumenti – opportunamente rivisti e migliorati – che caratterizzano il suo predecessore ed in generale tutta la produzione di TwoBeers, dallo sconosciuto TheBlackCity all’ormai famoso Wallow.

Troviamo quindi la “quickbar“, ovvero un menu a scomparsa che permette di avere tutti i contenuti più importanti a portata di click. Si può scegliere tra articoli recenti, commenti recenti, categorie più popolari e i tools più comuni dell’utente (in pratica un’estensione del classico “meta”). Tramite le opzioni del tema è possibile scegliere se ed eventualmente cosa visualizzare nella quickbar.

I pulsanti di navigazione si trovano in basso a destra del vostro pad. Tutti i links di gestione, consultazione e navigazione dei vostri articoli, pagine o attachments compariranno là, senza doverli andare a cercare per la pagina.

Esclusiva di Shiword è senza dubbio lo sticky-slideshow. Sapete che si possono mettere in evidenza gli articoli in modo che siano ben visibili e sempre in cima alla lista, vero?! Bene, con lo slideshow potrete dare loro ancora più visibilità. Vedrete i vostri articoli più importanti scorrere nella pagina principale, appena sotto il menu. Ricordate che:

  • normalmente è disattivato. potete attivarlo tramite le opzioni del tema
  • attivando lo slideshow, i post o pagine selezionati verranno mostrati nella slide.
  • gli articoli e le pagine da mostrare nella slide vanno selezionati in Bacheca->Aspetto->Slideshow.
  • lo slideshow ha bisogno delle animazioni javascript. Quindi no javascript = no slideshow
  • lo slideshow non compare nelle singole pagine o articoli

Un consiglio: non abusate degli “sticky posts”, altrimenti rischiano di perdere ogni significato.

Shiword mette a disposizione ben 5 aree widget (no, dico, 5!!!!). Una classica sidebar (che può essere disattivata tramite le opzioni), tre aree nel piè di pagina ed una nella testata. Quest’ultima è stata pensata per accogliere widget grafici, quali icone – ad esempio i vostri link ai social network – , pulsanti vari o il più classico modulo di ricerca.

Ricordiamo che tutte le funzionalità finora presentare possono essere disattivate/attivate tramite il pannello funzionalità in Bacheca->Aspetto->Opzioni tema

L’immagine di testata può essere cambiata usando una tra le quattro proposte – le trovate in Bacheca->Aspetto->Testata – o caricandone una personalizzata tramite l’apposito strumento. La testata ha un’altezza minima di 100px ma se inserite widget ingombranti, adatterà le proprie dimensioni di conseguenza e l’immagine di fondo sarà ripetuta.

I colori possono essere modificati tramite una semplice interfaccia che non richiede alcuna conoscenza di css/html, la trovate in in Bacheca->Aspetto->Colori Personalizzati. L’interfaccia di personalizzazione offre, inoltre, un’anteprima dinamica del risultato, evitandovi il costante salva e aggiorna.

Shiword aggiunge un nuovo gravatar di default alla lista dei disponibili. Andate nella sezione Bacheca->Impostazioni->Discussione e selezionate “Gravatar predefinito di Shiword”. Solo se volete, eh!

Per dare all’utente la sensazione di trovarsi all’interno di un ambiente graficamente uniforme, sono state apportate delle modifiche estetiche anche alla pagina di login.

Nello svilupare Shiword, è stata posta grande attenzione a compatibilità, affidabilità, estetica e leggerezza (in ordine di importanza). Il tema è stato infatti testato su tutti i principali browser (Firefox, Chrome, Maxthon, Safari, Opera e Internet Explorer (8/7) – in ordine di preferenza,nb), con e senza supporto javascript. Proprio i javascript presentano una novità: per le animazioni, sono stati purtroppo abbandonati gli ottimi Mootools per gli altrettanto buoni jQuery, che hanno il vantaggio di essere già integrati in WordPress e permettono di risolvere molti problemi di compatibilità con alcuni plugin.


AmericanEnglish-Flag

TwoBeers Crew is proud to present Shiword, a new theme for WordPress.
Theme features:

  • Fixed width : Your blog will look the same for everyone regardless of screen resolution
  • One/Two columns : as your wish!
  • Widgets Support : there’s a lot of space for your favorite widgets
  • Translation ready : Shiword is ready to be translated in your language
  • Up to 5 sidebars : 5 widgets areas??? yep!
  • Custom widgets : 5 new widgets expecially for those users that won’t use the quickbar, but want it’s functions
  • Standard WordPress : fully compliant with the standards required by WordPress
  • WP 3.x features : Shiword supports the new features introduced by WordPress 3.0 (and by WP 3.1 to)
  • Gravatars Support : your gravatar follows you everywhere
  • Quickbar navigation : all the most useful links always at your disposal
  • Print preview : you want to print an article? look at the preview first!
  • Menu animations : jquery powered
  • Custom header : you are your blog!
  • Custom colors : paint your site with the skin builder tool

Shiword is an “hitech multimedia-handsets-look-like” theme.

In the main index, posts are presented through their thumbnails – if any, and if you have not disabled them through the options – and the summary of the content.

Shiword integrates many of the tools – revised and improved – already present in the previous theme Fastfood and in general in the TwoBeers’s production, from the first unknown TheBlackCity to the popular Wallow, let’s have a look!

The “quickbar“, a sliding menu that give you quick access to all the important content as recent articles, recent comments, most popular categories and most common user tools (basically an extension of the classic “meta”). Through theme options you can choose what to display in the quickbar.

The navigation buttons are located at the bottom right of your pad. All management, consultation and navigation links of your posts, pages or attachments will appear there.

The slideshow is the exclusive feature of Shiword. You know that you can highlight the posts so they will be highly visible and always on top of the list, don’t you?! Ok, with the slideshow you’ll have another way to give your posts, and also pages, even more visibility.
Consider a few things:

  • it is turned off by default. you can activate it by the theme options
  • by activating the slide, the selected posts or pages will be show in a banner
  • posts or pages have to be selected in the “Dashboard->Appearence->Slideshow” submenu
  • slideshow needs javascript animations. So no javascript = no slideshow
  • the slideshow does not appear on individual pages or posts

Tip: do not abuse of the “sticky posts”, or they will lose all meaning.

Shiword provides up to 5 widget areas. A classic one into the sidebar (which can be disabled via options), three areas in the footer and one in the head. The later was thinked for graphics widgets, such as icons – for example, your links to social networks -, various buttons or the classic search form.

All these features can be enabled/disabled in the Dashboard->Appearance->Theme Options page.

The image header can be changed in Dashboard->Appearance->Header. The header has a minimum height of 100px, but if you use bulky widgets, its size will adjust accordingly and the image background will be repeated.

Colors can be changed in Dashboard->Appearance->Custom Colors. The skin builder has also an usefull dynamic preview: no need to save and refresh to see what your site will look like.

Shiword add a new default gravatar to your blog. Go to Dashboard->Settings->Discussion and select “Shiword default Gravatar” to use it.

To give the user the sensation of being inside a uniform design environment, graphic changes have been made also to the login page.

In Shiword development, we paid great attention on compatibility, reliability, aesthetics and lightness (in order of importance). The theme has been tested on all major browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Maxthon, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer (8 / 7) – in order of preference, nb), with and without javascript support. For animations development, we, unfortunately, abandoned the excellent Mootools in favor of jQuery, which has the advantage of being already integrated in WordPress and can solve many compatibility problems with some plugins.

    Salve a tutti, non so se faccio bene rivolgermi a voi per questo problema ma sto cercando di risolverlo da un po’ senza buoni risultati. Quando apro qualsiasi pagina del mio sito la sidebar normalmente a destra scorre alla fine della pagina nonostante l’abbia impostata sempre a destra. Mi hanno detto che potrebbe dipendere da qualche banner sovradimensionato rispetto allo spazio consensito ma non è così. Potreste aiutarmi a risolvere questo problema?
    Il sito in questione è http://caafsgv.altervista.org
    Ringrazio tutti in anticipo per la disponibilità

    • Jimo says:

      Salve Francesco,
      in verità non sembra essere una questione di dimensione dei banner ma bensì una questione di codice.
      Mi spiego:
      all’interno del codice della pagina c’è questo

      <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ad.altervista.org/js.ad/size=300X250/r=1316183316008">< /script>

      nota lo spazio nella tag di chiusura dello script < /script>
      in verità dovrebbe essere scritta senza lo spazio, ovvero </script>
      altrimenti non viene riconosciuta e fa sballare tutto il codice che segue (compresa la sidebar)
      spero di essermi spiegato ;)

      Probabilmente queste righe di codice vengono aggiunte da qualche plugin o qualche widget.

      • Francesco says:

        purtroppo non riesco a cancellare lo spazio nel senso che se ci provo mi ricompare dopo il salvataggio… perdonami l’ignoranza ma non saprei proprio da cosa potrebbe dipendere ( ps: mi compaiono molte scritte duplicate // < ![CDATA[ )
        Ho provato a cancellarlo il banner e funziona tutto a meraviglia questo vuol dire che devo rinunciarci?… grazie per l'aiuto Jimo!

        • Jimo says:

          non saprei proprio da cosa potrebbe dipendere

          non ho idea :(

          mi compaiono molte scritte duplicate // < ![CDATA[

          ho notato e sono convinto che provengano sempre dal codice del banner

          questo vuol dire che devo rinunciarci?

          direi di si. a meno che tu non riesca a sistemarlo

  2. InfoIndo says:

    I can`t write english well…I have 2 questions:
    I enable the features: posts thumbnail and content summary but the post thumbnail dos`nt appear. I see only the default thumbnail by your theme.

    1. How to change the default thumbnail (by twobeers.net) into my post image? It look like: appeared thumbnail in related posting plugin..
    2. How to add additional link in footer.
    <a href="http://www.twobeers.net/" title="Shiword theme by TwoBeers Crew">
    <img alt="twobeers.net" src="" />
    </a>

    • V.I. says:

      Hi InfoIndo.
      1. you should set the post featured image (you’ll find it in post edit page, if not, look at screen options – top-right tab – and activate it);
      2. open footer.php and add your link after

      				<strong><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></strong>

      that can be found on line 10
      Hope it helps

      • InfoIndo says:

    Wow. This is an amazing wordpress theme! Thank you!

  5. Flitzkacke says:

    Maybe I´, a little bit brainsmashed, but I´m looking for a possibility to display my artikles TOGETHER with their comments on the frontpage. Using Shiword 1.15 on WordPress 3.1

    Is there any way? I really love this theme!

  6. V.I. says:

    Hi,
    Actually it’s a really tricky thing to do, and it’s against WP natural behaviour and also against your readers: just think about an index page with 20 articles and each article has 50 or more comments, it’ll be huge and it’ll be really really difficult to read, and no one will do it.
    I’m afraid we cannot help you.
    Cheers

    Hi. Jimo
    How to increase the size of the central area please ?

    • Jimo says:

      Well, increasing the width is quite easy (just a few css mods).
      Say we want to increase by 200px

      #sw_body {
          width: 1172px;
      }
      #main {
          width: 1172px;
      }
      #head {
          width: 1172px;
      }
      #maincontent {
          width: 1050px;
      }
      #fixedfoot {
          width: 1172px;
      }
      .posts_narrow {
          width: 760px;
      }
      .posts_wide {
          width: 898px;
      }
      #sw_slider-wrap {
          width: 1050px;
      }

      Increase/decrease the values accordingly.

      You might want to increase even the header image. So open function.php and find (line 1257 or so)

      		define( 'HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH', 850 );
      

      Replace 850 with eg. 1050

      Just a little tip: the actual width is compatible with 1024×768 screen resolution. By increasing it, low resolution users can’t display your site correctly

      • Nathan says:

        Hi,

        I like very much all the options in this theme, but I cannot for the life of me find where it says “define( ‘HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH’, 850 );” as above, anywhere in functions.php, so can find no way to widen the header image!

        I can change the width of everything else, even the header’s frame, but it won’t let me change the width of the header’s image itself. Any one know how I could do this?

        Thanks,
        Nathan.

        • ilmaren says:

          Hi Nathan,
          the post above is relly old (2011), lots of things have change meanwhile…
          Did you try “Frame width” option in “other” tab? You can switch between narrow 626px, normal 850px and wide 1106px.

          Change the theme widht in other manner could result really messy and, of course, you’ll loose all your customization once an update is released.

          Hope it helps
          Cheers

          • Nathan says:

            Hi,
            Yes I did first try the Frame width option in “other” tab under Theme options. When I set it to ‘wide’ nothing happened! It only cut off the area of some videos that use shortcode, the width of the theme remains the same. ‘Narrow’ and ‘normal’ both work but not ‘Wide’. Maybe it is a conflict with a wordpress plugin or something? This is why I tried the CSS modification option, which in fact DID work and appeared to look fine but not the Header’s image. It’s all very odd…

            You say that with new versions of the theme I will lose any CSS mods that I make now anyway, though in theory I could make them again after any updare could I not? It’s just the header image size that I would not be able to change?

          • ilmaren says:

            If you add your css into custom css box (other tab in theme options), you won’t loose it.

            About the header image, you should add a wider one. Those images provided with the theme are 850px wide and won’t fill a wider frame.

            About the bug with theme width, did you use some cache plugin?

          • Nathan says:

            Hi,
            The comment below has no ‘Reply’ button, so I cannot reply to update you?!??

          • Nathan says:

            Yes, I got it now, please disregard last comment.

            Turns out the only problem with “Frame width” option in “other” tab was that it conflicted with a plugin that uses shortcode for videos, otherwise it does work and does widen the frame width.

            I was just being incredibly thick with the way my browser was set up, as it is a mobile friendly theme that displays differently on dufferent devices, one reason I started using the theme in the first place!

            So what I did was, as by now I had alraedy made CSS modifications to the width on a sub-domain using same Shiword Theme, I went back into the “Frame width” option in “other” tab under Theme Options, added a wider image for the header like you said (I also had to change the Max Width limit for Images under Media – Media Settings), and it worked.

            I then put “Frame width” option back to ‘Normal’ and put back my own CSS mods, because for my sub-domain site they worked better than the ‘Wide’ setting in Theme Options and the new header image now fits the header but without any conflict with the plugin using shortcode for video. So, no I don’t think it was a Cache plugin that was the problem in this case.

            In other words, without first adding the right size image after using “Frame width” option in “other” tab under Theme Options I would not have been able to ‘customize’ the width to the way that I wanted.

            Sorry I couldn’t explain this in fewer words, I hope it makes some kind of sense and thanks for all your help, Ciao.

  9. aliciasuah says:

    I like your theme but after the updates the font had become so small. Can i have back the bigger font?

    Thanks and regards
    Alicia

    • Jimo says:

      Hi Alicia. The last update didn’t change anything (but a little issue in the admin section). Anyway you may try to add something like this at the end of the style.css file

      body {
         font-size: 13px;
      }
      .storycontent {
         font-size: 14px;
      }

      then play with the size

    • Jimo says:

      Just a few tips for your site:
      - you use a lot of (beautyfull) images in your posts, but this makes your front page to load slowly. Consider using the “more” tag
      - in your “Follow me” widget you have to paste the full path to your social accounts (eg. http://twitter.com/aliciasuah), not only the account user-name (eg. aliciasuah)
      Bye!

      ps: thanks for using our theme ;)

  12. David M. says:

    Hello,
    This time it’s not a question about your fasfood theme !
    For another site, I wanted to try out Shiword. Actually I wanted to try the slideshow part of Shiword.
    I must be the stupidest man on earth ’cause I don’t understand how it works.
    Iactivated it in the theme option, made sure the box are checked in the content tab of the theme option.
    I told the site that my index page is “vœux”, declared vœux in the slideshow panel as a slideshow indeed. I even associated all my images with this page. But it doesn’t work.
    I looked for an answer on your site and on the web, but found nothing.
    I’m becoming crazy !
    Can you help me please ?

    Sincerely,

    David

    • V.I. says:

      Hi David,
      Looks like you’re doing everything right… The only think that is not clear to me is “did you choose what to show in slideshow?”.
      To make Slideshow works, you should tell it wich posts/pages to display; go to Appearance -> Slideshow and check posts/pages that you want to be displaied in slideshow.
      Let me know something
      Cheers

      • Nathan says:

        I can’t seem to get the Slideshow to work at all!

        I have tried everything. I have Javascript enabled and have added posts to Slideshow, which is activated. It just appears blank.

        Any ideas anyone please?

    If you go to my blog listing (http://www.prodigitalgroup.com/blog/), at the bottom of the page you’ll see “PAGE 1 OF 2″ with no continuation to the 2nd page?
    Until today i always increased the max posts/page number in my settings in WP so i had just 1 page for all posts but now it bugs me a little bit.
    Please help! :\

    thank you.

    • Jimo says:

      Really dunno why. I may suggest you to update the theme (version 3.02 is available), this may fix the problem

      • there is an error message when i update the themes.
        An error occurred while updating Shiword: Download failed. Failed writing body (456 != 1448).
        do you know what’s wrong?

    • Jimo says:

      probably your installation of the theme is corrupted (even the javascript animation file is gone).
      Try this: disable active plugins, switch to, let’s say, TwentyEleven, then delete you actual installation of Shiword and reinstall it again. Switch back to Shiword and, if everything is ok, reactivate the plugins

  16. Mutty says:

    Hello!
    I’m using Shiword theme on my club’s web site and it is working great. I’d like to change the background of the site which ,I’m guessing, consists of two images. The upper part’s color is customizable in the dashboard. My problem here is the lower part. Whatever I try to do, it stays white. I’ve tried searching for it in the files, but with no success.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Cheers

    • Jimo says:

      Hi!
      You’re right, the background consists in a color (the customizable one) and a image (fixed to the bottom).
      The image you need to change is shiword/images/custombg.png. Edit it with an image editor, or simply delete it.
      Bye

  17. Hello
    I update the translation file of Shiword3.02.
    Please teach one.
    Please teach a difference of “posts extra info” and “in posts overview” of “Theme Options” -> “content”.
    It was not found a difference to me.

    Always thank you for wonderful themes.

    • Jimo says:

      Hi!!
      Option “posts extra info” is for globally hide/show the extra informations (the gray bar after a post title with author,tags,categories etc…), while the “in posts overview” sub-option is for hide/show the extra informations only when in posts overview (like in main blog page, in archives and so on).
      I hope it’s more clear now

      Thanks for your accurate and prompt translations. You rock!

      • Hello, Jimo.
        Thank you.
        I was able to confirm it, and translation is pushed forward in this.
        In what think that take time a little more because there are many new translated sentences, but commit again thanking you in advance.

        Always thank you.

  18. Jeremy says:

    Hi, great theme this is!
    I have designed my website around Shiword and wonder if anyone can help me explain some things about the Facebook Plugin. What I need to know, is there a way to check the statistics of the “Likes” per page? Because all I see at the moment is a number of how many people who clicked the Like button… I would also like to know if I can see a list of people who like the page and if I have to register the website on my Facebook account.
    Do I have to install an extra plugin to analyse the data and display it on my Dashboard?
    Many thanks in advance :)

    • Jimo says:

      Olà Jeremy. Yes, this little button displays only the number of people who have clicked it. For additional features, you need to install some kind of plugin. Bye, and thanks for using our theme

  19. One of The WordPress Theme i like so much is Shiword. This is a great wp theme. I Reccommeded to my all web hosting cliens to use this powerfull theme…

    • V.I. says:

      Hi there,
      thanks for your compliments.

      Shiword is, natively, a dark color theme, but Jimo had made a child theme named Shiword Revers and you can find it in our downloads section (http://www.twobeers.net/downloads?did=21).
      I must aware you that Shiword Reverse was based on Shiword 2.08 and it could not work as expected with the current version.

      If you encounter some problems just report them and we’ll do our best to help out.

      Cheers

  20. I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying being able to use Shiword. It is the perfect Theme for me as it matches the non-WordPress website I am replace quite well. It also is very unique and functional. I’ve been having a few health issues and hadn’t noticed the 3.02 update. The issue with the G+ link icon not showing up has now been solved? I know I wanted that… but the fix you shared where I had to alter the code was a bit of a problem for me considering health issues if there was a fix included in the next upgrade. I like the work you are doing.

    I’m currently having some issues with WP… although the update to WP3.4 seemed to work, when I updated their themes TwentyEleven and TwentyTen the backside broke… the board is working quite fine with Shiword… but I can’t get to admin. …even manually setting it to TwentyEleven… or disabling plugins… won’t work. TwentyEleven doesn’t work. But, if I reinstall Shiword, the board is still working fine. Not so good if I want to post anything though…

    Anyhow I hope you get some sort of acknowledgement for your work!

    i saw in quickbar.php..
    but i wont mess it before ill ask how to do do..
    could you guys help out on this?
    thnx..

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Tadies,
      do you mean you want to set a widget with some links in your sidebar?

      • Tadies says:

        hi VI..
        the goal was to get it on the quickbar….
        so i wont have to use any sidebar or footer widgets…
        btw.. do we have a donate button here somewhere?
        this theme deserves it!
        thanks!

        • V.I. says:

          Hi Tadies,
          sorry for the long time, but I’ve been ill.

          To add new widgets to the quickbar, you should modify quickbar.php adding something like

          		<div class="menuitem">
          			<div class="menuitem_img ANEWCLASS"></div>
          			<div class="menuback">
          				<div class="menu_sx">
          					<div class="mentit">TITLE</div>
          					<ul class="solid_ul">
          						YOUR WIDGET CODE
          					</ul>
          				</div>
          			</div>
          		</div>

          immediatly after

          <div id="quickbar">

          , of course you should also add some style rules for your new widget container.

          Cheers

  22. Tadies says:

    hi guys! is there a way to change the comment text field color?
    the field is now white to write comments…
    guess i missed something in the css?

  23. Gustavo Souto says:

    Ótimo tema!!! Muito funcional, criativo e organizado!!!

  24. toukakoukan says:

    shiword theme option, let’s me add font from ‘google font api’ but i want font with extended latin signs like ‘ą,ć,ę,ł,ń,ó,ś,ż,ź,’ and i can’t get them, because there is no option for that.. i tried add it manualy (style.css and header.php) but it still dont work.. :c can u do something with this?..

    • Jimo says:

      Font variants like extended latin are not supported yet by the theme option. So you have to manually insert the code, like you probably did. Remember to clear the “google font” theme option, otherwise it will override the code you insert manually.
      Hope it helps

  25. Sentinelk says:

    yor theme is !!!MAGIC!!! thanks Jimo.

  26. jump-up says:

    Hi! Your themes are so great!!!
    i love your themes, especially fastfood and shiword.
    but shiword’s layout is too good to fit website.
    i try in this website “http://jump-up.info/tenho/”
    thank you!

  27. Norberto says:

    User’m using WordPress and the theme shiword v 3.04, which estpa presenting a problem for visitors who leave a comment. When you enter name and email in the required fields and write your comment after comment send the name and email remain the box and do not disappear with the message of the comment, could solve this problem

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Norberto,
      this is not a problem, and it’s not related to theme.
      Could be a Browser/Password Reminder/WP features: user name and email are kept in “memory” (software or session or cookie), to make user experience easier: no need to write your data every time you want to leave a comment in a blog.
      Hope it helps

  28. Mary says:

    Thanks so much for the unique WordPress themes. I use them on some of my blogs. They are well coded wordpress themes. Thanks again for all the hard work.

  29. Tadies says:

    whoopie we can comment again :) ty for fixing it

  30. Manuche says:

    I have to say you do have one of the best Seo optimized WordPress themes I have found lately. I really can’t believe that you giveaway the best mobile Wp theme. Thanks agian TwoBeers is great.

  31. Sergey says:

    Люблю Вашу тему и не хочу с ней расставаться ни при каких обстоятельствах. Только у меня возник вопрос: мне нужно чтобы заголовок поста был заключён в тег а не в том в котором они на данный момент. Подскажите каким образом это осуществить и какие нужно редактировать файлы. Помогите мне с этим вопросом, ПОЖАЛУЙСТА!!! Заранее благодарен!

    I love your topic and do not want to part with it under any circumstances. Only I have a question: I need to post title was awarded to the tag and not in which they are currently. Tell me how it is implemented and what you need to edit the files. Help me with this question please! Thanks in advance!

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Sergey,
      I’m sorry but we don’t speak Russian :-).

      BTW using Google translator, I can get that you want to change your post permalink. if this is your need: go into post edit mode and under the title you’ll see the post permalink, just hit edit, and set the new permalink, save and update the post.

      Hope it helps

      Cheers

  32. Miso says:

    Hi, I obviously love the Shiword as much as the others. Respect!
    When adding pics to the post they are displayed twice and featured picture is in post too big,

    Please check out my links
    http://slovak-motorsport.com/2013/02/03/privitanie-jakesina/
    In another post everythings working perfect
    http://slovak-motorsport.com/2013/02/02/denis-polas/

    I must be doing something wrong but have no clue what. I spent 3 days looking for the mistake but didnt find any. Any idea?
    I will appreciate any advice. Grazie mille

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Miso,
      looking at your site I can see a js error

      ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined
      
      if(jQuery)(
      
      jquery...r=3.5.1 (riga 32)

      in http://slovak-motorsport.com/wp-content/plugins/uploader/uploadify/jquery.uploadify.v2.1.4.mod.js?ver=3.5.1, maybe that plugin (or Nextgen Gallery), hasn’t be updated and is not compatible with the last version of jquery included in WP 3.5 (in the plugin page you can read: Compatible up to: 3.4.2; the same for Nextgen gallery).

      this is the best I can do by now.
      Hope it helps

      • Miso says:

        V.I. thank you. that was quick.
        Ive installed Nextgen Gallery only to solve the problem, obviously with no success.
        Anyway thanx for advice Im going to work on it.

  33. Miso says:

    Problem solved. I re-installed uploader and that helped not to display pictures twice.
    Regarding featured image, it gives me trouble only when the width of the picture is more than 500pixels.
    Im happy. Thanx again for Shiword

  34. Miso says:

    Hello,one more question ;-)
    I block users to go to WP backend but then it gives them “access denied” message which looks confusing for site visitors. How can I prevent this and redirect users straight to main site?
    Thank you again for the help

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Miso,
      I don’t know how to help you in this “quest”, anyway I think you’ve already find a solution to it ;-).

    • Jimo says:

      Hi,
      wandering over the net I discovered this
      http://pento.net/2011/06/19/preventing-users-from-accessing-wp-admin/
      Maybe it’s what you need
      Bye

  35. Miso says:

    Not really ;-) if it was HTML it’d have been done in 2 seconds but CSS and PHP is too much for me.
    Anyway, Shiword is worth to face some extra hassle ;-) Great theme.
    I made it possible for users to login, add new post, reach the profile etc. in front end (from main menu) but…
    sliding menu gives me trouble. Would it be possible to have under “user” only the mini login form? “Site Admin”, “Your Profile”, “Add New Post” and “Comments” give me trouble. Would it be possible to remove them?
    I only need to solve this and then I can go live with my-your site
    Thanx V.I.

    • Jimo says:

      Sure it’s possible

      open quickbar.php and delete lines (157->169)

      							<?php if ( current_user_can( 'read' ) ) { ?>
      								<li><a href="<?php echo esc_url( admin_url( 'profile.php' ) ); ?>"><?php _e( 'Your Profile', 'shiword' ); ?></a></li>
      								<?php if ( current_user_can( 'publish_posts' ) ) { ?>
      									<li><a title="<?php _e( 'Add New Post', 'shiword' ); ?>" href="<?php echo esc_url( admin_url( 'post-new.php' ) ); ?>"><?php _e( 'Add New Post', 'shiword' ); ?></a></li>
      								<?php } ?>
      								<?php if ( current_user_can( 'moderate_comments' ) ) {
      									$sw_awaiting_mod = wp_count_comments();
      									$sw_awaiting_mod = $sw_awaiting_mod->moderated;
      									$sw_awaiting_mod = $sw_awaiting_mod ? ' (' . number_format_i18n( $sw_awaiting_mod ) . ')' : '';
      								?>

    Lovely theme!
    I’ve been looking to update my theme for about a week or two, and I’ve played with a bunch of themes on my testing site. I absolutely LOVE this one!

    Her theme is very nice. how to remove login in the footer.

  38. Teodoro says:

    Un saluto e complimenti per il tema che mi piace molto, scrivo qui per chiedervi una cosa apparentemente banale ma alla quale non riesco a trovare risposta: “vorrei aggiungere il codice adsense all’interno del singolo articolo, sotto al titolo dell’articolo, ma non so dove inserirlo, potreste darmi un aiutino? :-) Per andare ancora meglio, visto che vorrei sfruttare la possibilià del tema su mobile devices, dove dovrei inserire il codice generato per l’advertising su questi? Grazie davvero

    • V.I. says:

      Ciao Teodoro,
      siamo spiacenti, ma non forniamo supporto su WP o su temi non realizzati da noi.
      Ti consiglio di rivolgere la tua domanda sui forum ufficiali di WP, vedi http://www.wordpress.org o http://it.wordpress.org/

      • Teodoro says:

        Scusate, leggo solo ora :-) cancellate pure l’altro commento !!
        Ok, il problema è che mi diranno (esperienza verificabile) che non sono gli autori del tema e che non possono aiutarmi…proverò a sperimentare da me e poi vi faccio sapere se volete come ho risolto, potrebbe essere utile a chi si trovasse nella stessa condizione di customizzazione. Ciao e buon prosieguo di lavoro :-)

  39. Teodoro says:

    Bel tema complimenti davvero per le soluzioni grafiche e stilistiche implementate!! Vorrei utilizzarlo come nuova versione per il mio blog, avrei però bisogno di sapere due cose, se potete darmi un aiutino :-)
    1) volendo inserire il codice adsense per avere annunci anche sul “mobile”, dove devo inserire il codice che viene fornito? In pratica è una sorta di script in php che andrebbe inserito nei singoli articoli che verranno visualizzati…
    2) A proposito della versione “mobile”, so che la domanda è davvero stupida ma tant’è (non ho ancora ne un iphone ne uno smartphone con android e non posso testare direttamente) se provo a cliccare sul collegamento in basso a destra del tema, mi apre una schermata dove però scompare tutta la personalizzazione dei menu e delle barre laterali, e viene visualizzato solo una finestrella con un articolo..è normale? Si può, e come eventualmente, mantenere il layout cosi come lo si avrebbe lato desktop? E per ultimo…la versione mobile è valida anche per windows 7/8 e blackbarry?
    Scusate per la sfilza di domande, credo che possano interessare anche altri utenti però
    Ciao e buon prosieguo lavorativo
    Teodoro

    • Jimo says:

      Ciao Teodoro,
      posso rispondere alla seconda domanda. Per quel che riguarda la personalizzazione guarda qui (ps: la domanda è talmente simile che suppongo siate la stessa persona ;) ).
      Per la compatibilità con IE7/8, sì, è compatibile. Non ho modo di testare su Blackberry ma immagino di si, il browser di BB è piuttosto conforme agli standard.

      Giusto un’appunto per la prima domanda, ma il codice adsense è php o semplicemente javascript? nel secondo caso basterebbe inserirlo in un widget di testo…

  40. Adrienne says:

    After I updated to 4.01 it broke, and broke hard. I actually had to go to my hosting service and delete the files on my FTP system to fix it. I bounced back to 3.02 to keep using it.

  41. Michal says:

    Hello guys.
    sorry, the new version gives me trouble displaying the pictures. it ignores the gallery and displays the picture in the same page so then you have to hit the “back” button if you want to continue reading the post.
    http://slovak-motorsport.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/modrovka07042013.jpg
    Any chance for me to go back to the previous version?

    Hello,

    First of all thank you very much for this wonderful theme! It was almost exactly what I was looking for. I have just one question. The white sheet kind of border at the top of the page can it be deleted in some kind of way. It is messing up the logo I putted there.
    Here is a picture with an arrow to show you what i mean.

    Again, Thanks in advanced for this wonderful theme, and keep up the good work!
    Martijn

    • Martijn says:

      Again with working link to the picture

      • ilmaren says:

        Hi Martijn,
        thanks for your feedback, we appreciate :-)

        To remove the white border, go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Theme Options and, at the bottom of the other tab, add the following custom CSS code:

        #head {
            border-top: none;
        }
        

        Hope it helps
        Cheers

        • Martijn says:

          Thanks For the fast reply sorry to say the code and discription you gave me didn’t work. But it pointed me in the right direction! In the style.css file I commented out the following line’s:

          #head_overlay {
          /* border-radius: 30px 30px 0 0; */
          /* background: url('images/pad_overlay.png') repeat-x scroll left top transparent; */
          /* background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, rgba(255,255,255,0.04) 0%, rgba(255,255,255,0.25) 50%, rgba(255,255,255,0) 51%); */ /* FF3.6+ */
          /* background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,rgba(255,255,255,0.04)), color-stop(50%,rgba(255,255,255,0.25)), color-stop(51%,rgba(255,255,255,0))); */ /* Chrome,Safari4+ */
          /* background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, rgba(255,255,255,0.04) 0%,rgba(255,255,255,0.25) 50%,rgba(255,255,255,0) 51%); */ /* Chrome10+,Safari5.1+ */
          /* background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top, rgba(255,255,255,0.04) 0%,rgba(255,255,255,0.25) 50%,rgba(255,255,255,0) 51%); */ /* Opera 11.10+ */
          /* background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top, rgba(255,255,255,0.04) 0%,rgba(255,255,255,0.25) 50%,rgba(255,255,255,0) 51%); */ /* IE10+ */
          /* background-image: linear-gradient(top, rgba(255,255,255,0.04) 0%,rgba(255,255,255,0.25) 50%,rgba(255,255,255,0) 51%); */ /* W3C */
          color: #fff;
          font-size: 1.5em;
          font-style: italic;
          text-align: left;
          min-height: 50px;
          padding: 10px 60px;
          }

          This is what worked for me. I posted it so it might help others. So thank you for the fast support and pointing me to the right direction ;)

          Martijn

          • ilmaren says:

            ok, so you weren’t talking about the border, but about the overlay :-P
            BTW what you’ve done will be removed at the first upgrade of the theme.
            The best way to keep your customizations is to add

            #head_overlay {
                background: transparent;
            }
            

            to custom CSS code

  46. Anders says:

    I recently had to customize the look of shiword and to add custom post types for a client of mine. And I really enjoyed building my child theme of shiword: While I mostly do child themes based on standard WP themes I had to use some premium themes as well. And shiword BY FAR is the most professionally constructed theme I had the pleasure to base a child theme upon. Two thumbs up. And just my five cents.

  47. Tadies says:

    aughs! now my very belated reply to Jimo :).
    i was refering to the custom login from shiword theme…
    it looks to me its gone fully…
    so i had to use a plugin again.
    is it me or is it really gone from that them?

    • Jimo says:

      Oh, that one. Unfortunately the Wp repository didn’t allow it anymore, so we had to remove it. Actually it has never been allowed, but I didn’t know and they didn’t noticed it in early versions of the theme ;)

  48. Leo says:

    I really like the theme, been loaded for a while but only now starting to use it. At this point the only input I have is can you make the mobile site easier to use on the mobile device, larger button easier to push and fast loanding. Plus any enhanscment you can come up with. Thank you!!!!
