new wordpress 2.0 theme: stuttering

stuttering 1.5 is completely compatible with wordpress 2.0! the new version (stuttering 2.0, dec 24, 2005) merely includes a thumbnail image for the new presentation area in wordpress

lots of bug fixes on latest version, updated 6 april 2005!

So, I’ve taken some advice and calls for help with the last theme I developed (for this blog), and went ahead and designed another one, loosely based on it. (procrastination….) Free as in beer! Hope you like it. Installation is super easy (standard drop-in theme), and I even put in instructions for graphic changes (top) and blog title size changes (or even how to make the whole top graphic a link, if you want to use a non web-safe font in your image).

The top is an include, so if savvy, you can go in and do as you see fit (menu, perhaps?). Any questions? Comment or contact.

Be sure your ftp application is set to “text” or “ascii” or “automatic” when you upload! Otherwise, it gets all weird looking in the admin panel….

    I am learning to use WordPress and installed your Shuttering Theme. [very nice!!]. Is there a way that I can order the Link Categories? Not the links in each category (that I know how to do) but rather reorder the categories. So, as an example I created Category 1 and then Category 2. I then added some links. SO on display, Cat 1 shows before Cat 2. How can I reverse this? thanks.

    I really like your theme. Have implemented with very minor changes. I have one more question. How can I make the text larger size font for ONLY THE POST CONTENT? I tried it and it also changes other fonts on the right sidebar..not sure what to change in the css. Thanks in advance…

  3. David{again, again] | 07 March 2005 at 11:04 pm | Permalink

    I don’t have Firefox, but some have told me the theme does not render properly. Here is a screen shot someone created. Any thoughts? http://www.delusionsofgrandeur.org/gallery/ScreenShots/phb

    That rendering issue was due some changes you made on the template, but glad to see you have it fixed. For text, try just adding some font styles to the .post class on my stylesheet. Finally, check out the wordpress codex on link lists to see how to order your links by ID#. It’s a pretty simple template change. Cheers!

    I’ve played with the .post parameters and just can’t get the text in posts to display at a different size than in the sidebar menus. I’m sure it’s something simple I’m missing, but I’m stumped. Help? Anyone? Bueller…Bueller…anyone?

  6. nathaniel | 12 March 2005 at 7:12 am | Permalink

    Hmmmm. I wouldn’t have time to do this myself now, but what this means is that the style or class I am using in the posts (for font) is the same as the one I am using in the menu. Make a duplicate style in the stylesheet, with only a slightly different name, and a different font size, then go into the template and change the style for when you want to use the two different ones (menu item vs posts)

    Downloaded, but worried about all the code and info in the theme choice page. (in wp, where you choose to activate a theme. it this norma? none of the other themes were so full of stuff there.

  8. Dan | 15 March 2005 at 12:42 am | Permalink

    It was right in front of me. The “p, li, .feedback” are all one style. Copy each into their own style and assign separate formatting and “p” changes the post text while “li” changes the sidebar text and “.feedback” changes the comments text at the end of each post. Works great for me. Thanks of the design!

  9. nathaniel | 15 March 2005 at 1:01 pm | Permalink

    No problem, dan1 glad you figgered it out. David: have you uploaded with FTP as text, or ascii? Please do so – otherwise it seems to bug out with all that extra text in the admin panel….

  10. Pete | 16 March 2005 at 6:44 am | Permalink

    Thanks! I love the theme!
    I’m brand new to wordpress and anything having to do with coding, style sheets, templates, and so on. I’d like to increase the size of the title of each entry in order to create clearer separations between blog entries.

    Is there an easy way for a total newbie to do this?

    Thanks! I love the theme!

  11. nathaniel | 16 March 2005 at 10:37 am | Permalink

    You bet. In style.css, find the style for h3, and play with the numbers in font-size. that’s it!

  12. Pete | 17 March 2005 at 1:00 pm | Permalink

    Thanks!

  13. Dan | 27 March 2005 at 7:29 pm | Permalink

    Categories are already set in the index.php to sort by name, but the reason it may NOT be sorting by name is I found a syntax error in my template. The line read but the “-” needed to be changed to “=”. When I made this change categories correctly sorted by name instead of id#.

    Hope this helps–Dan’l

  14. nathaniel | 06 April 2005 at 12:10 am | Permalink

    everything fixed! download away!

    I just can’t seem to get RSS working. When I click the links under “Meta” (rss 2.0, atom 0.3, comments rss 2.0) I get an error message. You can check it out at http://logoswalk.com/journal/index.php. I’ve spent most of today searching WP Support, the WP Wiki and various Google searches to no avail. I’m getting more and more confused. I even updated the Stuttering theme to the most recent version but I’m still striking out. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

  16. nathaniel | 21 April 2005 at 7:43 am | Permalink

    yeh. this is a wordpress bug. it seems to work on most servers, but every now and again, the feeds cut out, and can’t be found (on a different blog, I had the same issue with the default theme, believe it or not!)

    the resolution can be found here: http://mosquito.wordpress.org/view.php?id=903

  17. Dan | 21 April 2005 at 1:11 pm | Permalink

    Uh…er…the code they talk about changing in the wp-blog-header.php is NOT in my file of same name. (I’ve nearly gone blind in denial, reading that file over and over again.) But then the issue documented there seems to be related to WP running on IIS, which is not my particular configuration.

  18. Dan | 21 April 2005 at 1:22 pm | Permalink

    I downloaded the latest wp-blog-header.php from the source provided by Nathaniel, but no luck. Acutally, I’m not experiencing a 404 error, which I believe is the issue addressed by that particular fix. I get a page that says there’s an error displaying the XML page with the specific message:

    The following tags were not closed: meta. Error processing resource ‘http://logoswalk.com/journal/wp-rss2.php

  19. nathaniel | 22 April 2005 at 4:16 pm | Permalink

    wow. that’s really annoying. sounds like the error is in your feed files, tho, and not the template…. have you tried deleting and replacing the feed files with a new wordpress standard install? other than that, I think this may be a question for the support pages over at wordpress.org. sorry i can’t be more helpful! I’m more of a CSS than I am a PHP guy….

  20. Dan | 22 April 2005 at 6:32 pm | Permalink

    Yes, you’re right. I installed another theme and…drum roll, please…it still doesn’t work. So it’s NOT the Stuttering theme itself but something else. The answers I’m getting at the support forum don’t make sense to me/are not working. They say, “If it doesn’t kill you it makes you stronger” but sometimes it cripples, maims or puts you in a coma. ;-)

    Thanks for the help–I’ll keep plugging at it…

  33. Fittsy | 27 April 2006 at 10:26 pm | Permalink

    I love the theme.

    However, I can’t seem to edit the index.php to make changes inside the loop(for various plugins). If I make any changes to the loop it breaks the theme. Even if I remove the change the theme remains broken until I replace my index.php.

    Any ideas?

    Re comment No. 36 above made by kcyap (justin yap).
    The real person behind the posting of daily entries in 2dayblog.com is Malaysian Justin Yap. Justin’s own websites were kcyap.blogspot.com & kcyap.com but he committed a wordpress design contest scam earlier this year and he is now hiding behind the 2dayblog.com website. His website kcyap.com is now redirected to 2dayblog.com. If you type “kcyap +scam” in Google search box, you can view pages relating to the scam committed by kcyap.

    I’m thoroughly confused what your webpage is about, but if your readers were looking for stuttering links they may be interested in three non-commercial websites I set up for persons who stutter to share their life stories, connect with other stutterers, add their knowledge, wisdom, experience — in other words, to value stutterers’ voices.

    - StutteringReviews.com enables stutterers to write Amazon-style reviews of stuttering therapy programs, anti-stuttering devices, and anti-stuttering medications.

    - FriendshipCenter.com enables stutterers to share their life stories, then search for other stutterers by age, location, gender, marital status, occupation, religion, or other parameters. As a support database, you can find the one person you want to talk to (instead of shotgunning an e-mail list). I set up two previous versions of FriendshipCenter.com in the last ten years, and both became so popular that the software crashed and burned. The new software should handle 50,000 or more members.

    - The Stuttering Wikibook is an encyclopedia of stuttering, that encourages readers to add, correct, or edit the articles. Several sections encourage readers to add material: “How We Treat Stuttering” encourages speech-language pathologists to write about what they do in their speech clinics; “What Worked for Me” encourages stutterers to write about their treatment experiences; and “My Life in Stuttering” encourages stutterers to share their life stories.

    Thanks.
