    Hello! Please I need help to find the code to change to following:
    Widget Index Insert - The widget area inserted after x posts on the index page.
    I like to change the pre-setting x= after 2 posts to another value.

    I have Thematic and (as a non PHP-coder, maybe "Hacker") searched down and up to find pieces of the generating code. I think it is the variable "thm_insert_position", but I found only one place, where it is used and no place where it is defined. Here is what i found:

    if ($count==$thm_insert_position) {
    $count = $count + 1;
    } // end index_loop

    // action hook creating the 'index-insert' widget area

    'Index Insert' => array(
    'admin_menu_order' => 700,
    'args' => array (
    'name' => 'Index Insert',
    'id' => 'index-insert',
    'description' => __('The widget area inserted after x posts on the index page.', 'thematic'),
    'before_widget' => thematic_before_widget(),
    'after_widget' => thematic_after_widget(),
    'before_title' => thematic_before_title(),
    'after_title' => thematic_after_title(),
    'action_hook' => 'widget_area_index_insert',
    'function' => 'thematic_index_insert',
    'priority' => 10,

    // Define the Index Insert
    function thematic_index_insert() {
    if (is_active_sidebar('index-insert')) {
    echo thematic_before_widget_area('index-insert');
    echo thematic_after_widget_area('index-insert');

    // ocated in sidebar-index-insert.php
    function widget_area_index_insert() {
    } // end widget_area_index_insert

  2. You'll find it under Thematic Options on your WordPress Panel(under appearance)

    Thank you for your answer! I'm using also Thematic Options 2.2 and this Theme Child hides the "Thematic Options". I will digg deeper in the functions, but realize that Thematic is maybe to complex to customize for my PHP-Knowledge.

  4. are you using devin's Options theme? or mine? either way there will be a section somewhere that removes the Options panel. it will look 'similar' to this (note especially the remove_action from admin_menu)

    function remove_thematic_panel() {
      remove_action('admin_menu' , 'mytheme_add_admin');
    add_action('init', 'remove_thematic_panel');

    comment that out or delete it and the thematic panel will come back.

    you could also copy the thematic_index_loop function into your child's functions.php, rename it to childtheme_override_index_loop and hard-code this value manually.

    if ($count==$thm_insert_position) {

    by changing $thm_insert_position to an actual number

    Thanks Helga. I got that. I don't remind where I DL the Options Theme some month ago, the readme.txt points to - so I thinks its Devin's...
