Just uploaded.</p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>Now I have found almost all of the ones I want except for the two. The text before category links (posted in) and (Tagged) tag links. I have over ride the funtions form content-extentions.php to my functions with childtheme-overrider fucntions. I can change the text fine can also add icons inside functions.php like Mr. @colfelt said. For that all I need to do is break the icons imagesinto different small individual icons.</p> <p>But every thing I have tried in css failed. I have successfully changed the icon with the text but the links get scrambled I have tried inline-block, float, padding every thing I know of but the links get scrambled any way.</p> <p>Here I is a screenshot of the same link I have mentioned above. I have the ones I want to find the classes of.</p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>And about the widgets don't worry about it. I'll edit single.php or find another way. I want to add a script to add galleries there you know like kotaku[dot]com does. But then again that is not important. </p> helgatheviking on "Need Help with Thematic Child Theme Please!"

Wed, 25 Apr 2012 09:06:03 +0000 saaqi 26625@ <p>hello sir @helgatheviking thank you for the explanation. I have successfully added the icons.

I want to add two widget.</p> <p>Just before and after the .entry-content.</p> <p>Thank you again for your help, I am very grateful. </p> helgatheviking on "Need Help with Thematic Child Theme Please!" Tue, 24 Apr 2012 16:47:13 +0000 helgatheviking 26603@ <p>i understand your english just fine, though you might not get mine. i suggested that you do a little work on your own to find the appropriate CSS classes to target. you can either look in content-extensions.php for the original functions (which will show the html markup) or you can use <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> to investigate the markup of a web page. </p> <p>for example the markup for the "By:" is</p> <pre><code>&lt;span class=&quot;meta-prep meta-prep-author&quot;&gt;By &lt;/span&gt;</code></pre> <p>so the CSS you'd want to target it would be<br /> <pre><code>.meta-prep-author { background: pink; }</code></pre> saaqi on "Need Help with Thematic Child Theme Please!" Tue, 24 Apr 2012 15:47:55 +0000 saaqi 26602@ <p>thank you very much sir @helgatheviking that is pretty much what I was looking for But I want to change $tagtext, $postcategory, $authorlink $entrydate this stuff with icons. So in Css what do I start with for $tagtext or $entrydate.</p> <p>Sorry for my bad English. If want to add icon to $tagtext according to your code instead of ".post-author" what should I type there.</p> <p>Thank you again. </p> saaqi on "Need Help with Thematic Child Theme Please!" Tue, 24 Apr 2012 15:09:14 +0000 saaqi 26601@ <p>Thank you very much for the reply sir,how ever that did not work. But I did find a solution. I used override function added this code in functions.php and it worked for Tagged.</p> <p><code>// Create post tags<br /> function childtheme_override_postfooter_posttags() {</p> <p> if (is_single()) {<br /> $tagtext = __('&lt;img src="Icon Link" alt="Tagged"&gt;', 'thematic');<br /> $posttags = get_the_tag_list("&lt;span class=\"tag-links\"&gt; $tagtext ",', ','&lt;/span&gt;');<br /> } elseif ( is_tag() &#38;&#38; $tag_ur_it = thematic_tag_ur_it(', ') ) { /* Returns tags other than the one queried */<br /> $posttags = '&lt;span class="tag-links"&gt;' . __(' Also tagged ', 'thematic') . $tag_ur_it . '&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class="meta-sep meta-sep-comments-link"&gt;|&lt;/span&gt;';<br /> } else {<br /> $tagtext = __('Tagged', 'thematic');<br /> $posttags = get_the_tag_list("&lt;span class=\"tag-links\"&gt; $tagtext ",', ','&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class="meta-sep meta-sep-comments-link"&gt;|&lt;/span&gt;');<br /> }<br /> return apply_filters('childtheme_override_postfooter_posttags',$posttags); </p> <p> }<br /> // end postfooter_posttag</code></p> <p>Now please tell me if there is a way to syle $tagtext command with css. Because if it is possible that'll make things way smoother. I have tried #tagtext and .tagtext and every thing I could think of.</p> <p>Thank you again sir </p> helgatheviking on "Need Help with Thematic Child Theme Please!" Tue, 24 Apr 2012 15:08:14 +0000 helgatheviking 26600@ <p>a pretty good explanation. filters change something without moving it. colfelt's suggest code should. i'm wondering why you can apply a background image w/ CSS? i'm pretty sure everything in the postmeta has specific spans you can target. i can't look up the appropriate css selector right now, just use firebug to find it. something like this might work?</p> <pre><code>.post-author /*not sure this is correct selector*/ { height: 32px; width: 32px; background: url(images/your-icon.png) no-repeat; display: block; text-indent: -9999999px; }</code></pre> colfelt on "Need Help with Thematic Child Theme Please!" Tue, 24 Apr 2012 11:41:49 +0000 colfelt 26593@ <p>Hi Saaqi, I'm no expert either, but for what it's worth...</p> <p>Starting with your first question, you probably need to look at using a filter to change how your theme displays the post meta. You add filters into your childtheme's functions.php (or if you want to keep it neat, create a separate 'my-filters.php' file that you can then pull into your childtheme's functions.php with an include).</p> <p>The process of filtering as far as I understand it, is to find the function(s) responsible for displaying what you want to change, then copy it into your functions file, then alter the code and apply a special action called "add_filter". Perhaps someone more knowledgable than I may refine this definition here.</p> <p>It can be a process of trial and error to find the code, but to give you a leg-up, the code you're looking for is in thematic/library/extensions/content-extensions.php around line 687. Find the bit that deals with author meta data, and copy/paste it into your functions file.</p> <p>Then alter the code and add the 'add_filter' action at the end.</p> <p>So... I'll give this a try, but can't guarantee it'll work as I'm still getting to grips with this myself. Hopefully someone clever will come and correct me.</p> <pre><code>function saaqi_thematic_postmeta_authorlink() { global $authordata; $authorlink = &#39;&lt;span class=&quot;meta-prep meta-prep-author&quot;&gt;&#39; . __(&#39;&lt;img src=&quot;REPLACE THIS WITH THE PATH TO YOUR ICON&quot; alt=&quot;An author icon&quot;&gt; &#39;, &#39;thematic&#39;) . &#39;&lt;/span&gt;&#39;; $authorlink .= &#39;&lt;span class=&quot;author vcard&quot;&gt;&#39;. &#39;&lt;a class=&quot;url fn n&quot; href=&quot;&#39;; $authorlink .= get_author_posts_url($authordata-&gt;ID, $authordata-&gt;user_nicename); $authorlink .= &#39;&quot; title=&quot;&#39; . __(&#39;View all posts by &#39;, &#39;thematic&#39;) . get_the_author_meta( &#39;display_name&#39; ) . &#39;&quot;&gt;&#39;; $authorlink .= get_the_author_meta( &#39;display_name&#39; ); $authorlink .= &#39;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&#39;; } add_filter (&#39;thematic_postheader_authorlink&#39;, &#39;saaqi_thematic_postmeta_authorlink&#39;);</code></pre> <p>The second question you have about widgets is pretty well documented, but you could try starting here: <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> </p> saaqi on "Need Help with Thematic Child Theme Please!" Sun, 22 Apr 2012 16:10:14 +0000 saaqi 26542@ <p>Hello Every one, This is my first post on the forum. I am developing a child theme for thematic. Every thing has gone pretty well for me but I am stuck on a couple of things that I can't understand.</p> <p>First one is I want to replace the meta text by which I mean "By (Author)" and "Published: (Date)" and in the bottom of the content "Posted in" "Comments" and "Tagged" with images icons. Can I do it and how.</p> <p>And the second problem is I want to add two new widgets 1 on just the start of the content. By which I mean after the title and meta information and just before the actual post starts. Which means I want to add a widget just before .entry-content according to this structure.<br /> <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>Second widget I want is to add just after the .entry-content.</p> <p>And I want to add these widgets only on the single page.</p> <p>Please if any one can help I'll be very grateful.
