    I would like to print out the instructions for using my new Theme Ubud but it comes out garbled. I need the info as I’m stuck with no images showing. It doesn’t seem to have simply transferred them from my old theme. I’m an old lady and am not comfortable reading from the screen and remembering what to do. many thanks Eileen

    The blog I need help with is: smiffpic.com

    Hi @smiffy37,
    since the Ubud theme uses the “Featured Image” feature (see instructions here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/) you will need to add featured images to your posts in order to have the images displayed on your front page (like in the Ubud live demo).

    Regarding the print out of the Ubud support instructions you could use an online service like “Print Friendly” to print out the instructions or save them as an offline PDF document. You would just need to enter the support page URL:

    Please just let me know, if you need any further help.
    Best, Ellen

    Well – I managed to print out the instructions so I’m very happy about that, but I couldn’t get the Live Demo. I’ve been trying to follow the printed instructions but I’m getting in such a muddle it’s stressing me out as nothing I do seems work as it should. In the past when I’ve changed [free] Themes everything has transferred automatically and I guess I expected this to do so too. I’m in danger of giving up and canceling everything ….

    Hi,
    I’m so sorry to hear that you are having trouble setting up the Ubud theme. Since Ubud is a Photography-specific theme the theme only works using “Featured Images” feature.

    I can see on your site that your post “Poppy” already has a featured image applied. You also have the one-column grid view applied, if you want to use another grid (like the 3-column in the live demo) you can switch unter Appearance / Customize / Theme Options.

    For the self-hosted theme version of Ubud I prepared a little video documentation and even if not everything works the same in the WordPress.com Ubud version, it might be helpful for you to watch the video tutorial and get to know the Ubud theme better. Here is the link to the video on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/88506332

    Please let me know, if you have any further questions.
    Best, Ellen
