  1. Right now, the only way a user can get to the home page after navigating somewhere else is to click on the title of the blog (or click on the back button). I'd like to add a navigation tab to bring them back to the home page, but there's no obvious way to do it. How would I go about it?

    Note: sandbox_menu will be changing to globalnav_menu in 0.7

  3. OK, I did this, and it worked.


    On my new child theme, when I go to the admin page to write a new post, the TinyMCE rich text editor is now gone. Do I need to do something in the functions.php page on the child theme to invoke the functions of the parent theme, or somehting? (Just guessing here; I don't know programming--web or otherwise--at all.)

  4. The Visual Editor disappearing isn't theme related. Check your user settings.

  5. No, it's definitely theme-related. When I switch the child theme on, TinyMCE goes away. When I switch back to generic Thematic, it comes back.

    Also, when I'm on a page to write a new post and the child theme is active, I see a box near the "Publish" button that says,

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/mfeldste/public_html/wp-content/themes/e-Literate/functions.php:9) in /home/mfeldste/public_html/wp-includes/classes.php on line 806

  6. I would add that the code in functions.php of the child theme is my best attempt to follow your directions on that post. (I tried twice to post the code here between backticks, but the moderating system swallowed it.) At any rate, here's what I did:

    1. I created a new php page in Dreamweaver.
    2. I added the php tags you describe in between the body tags of the php page.
    3. I pasted the code from your post in between the php tags.

    That's it. I saved it as functions.php and put it in the directory with the child theme.

  7. Send your functions.php to ian at themeshaper dot com and I'll take a look at it.

  8. Did this get figured out?
