    Hi, posts that I put into my portfolio don’t look like a gallery with the date next to the title. How do I remove?

    Also I have made my home page a static page rather than the blog posts. But that means I can’t find my blog posts?? Where do they sit in the menu?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hello!

    I’m not sure what you mean by this question:

    posts that I put into my portfolio don’t look like a gallery with the date next to the title. How do I remove?

    Are you trying to remove the date on projects in your portfolio?

    In order to do that, you’ll need the Custom Design Upgrade and to add some custom CSS to the CSS editor. Do you have that upgrade?

    Also I have made my home page a static page rather than the blog posts. But that means I can’t find my blog posts?? Where do they sit in the menu?

    You’ll need to create an empty page and call it something like “Blog” — then assign your posts to this new page. That should take care of this problem for you. :)

    Thanks Melissa. I have granted you access to see the issues. Although there is little content on there, it is just holding stuff while I get the framework in place. The slideshow issue I mentioned can be seen in the menu page BABIES

    I deleted the whole portfolio section and am just using standard pages for my galleries as I didn’t like how the date sits next to each project. I did upgrade to premium so will that sort it out? Although I may just leave it as it is if I can sort the slideshow out in the standard pages.

    Thanks re: blog I will try that

    Hi Melissa, Ive done what you suggested for the blog posts and set up a new page called Blog but each blog post sits as a sub page to the blog page rather than laid out as a normal blog listing page.

    The font for the headers and text in the pages changes depending on what device I view it on too.

    Can I change the colour of the font in the menu bar too please?

    Sorry for all these questions!

    Hello again! Thanks for letting me see the site, that’s really helpful!

    Also, your photos are wonderful!

    For the slideshow — what you’re seeing is the default WordPress gallery styles. You’ll find more information on what’s possible when adding galleries to WordPress.com right here: Galleries and Slideshows

    Unfortunately, there’s no way to use the Snap featured gallery slider styling on galleries inserted directly into your pages from your media library.

    I did upgrade to premium so will that sort it out?

    If you want to add a bit of CSS to your theme customzier, we can hide the date of the project items. If you want to go this route, let me know and I’ll help you with the code needed.

    This is what the blog posts page should look like on Snap… Looking at your site, doesn’t appear as if it’s been assigned to the Posts page. Can you check your general settings again?

    The font for the headers and text in the pages changes depending on what device I view it on too.

    Looks like you’ve chosen custom fonts… You’ll want to disable the Merriweather font:

    To disable the Merriweather web font, follow these steps:

    * Navigate to the Theme Customizer.
    * Click the Display heading.
    * Check the box next to Disable Merriweather web font.
    * Click Save & Publish.

    Can I change the colour of the font in the menu bar too please?

    Yes! With some CSS. It’ll look like this:

    #snap-nav ul li.current_page_item a {
        color: red;
    }
    #snap-nav ul a {
        color: red;
    }

    …Or whatever color you’re wanting to use. I’m happy to help you perfect that also.

    Let me know how all this goes! I’m sure that once we get these wrinkles ironed out, our site will look as fabulous as your beautiful portraits! ;)

    Hi Melissa

    Thanks for the lovely feedback! Your site is fabulous too!

    Font — I’ve disabled Merriweather but the font is still different on the other devices when I look at preview

    Blog — I’m not sure why this is as it is. Is it because I’ve set the home page as a static page rather than blog post? Are there other templates for this page I could use?

    Custom Font menu — I made the changes to the CSS but it only changes the colour of the font of the menu item you are on, not all of the menu items.

    Slideshow — ok I understand and read the wordpress link. It does say that the background of the slideshow can be white rather than black which would sort my issue of it looking like the images sit in a black box. However every time I click on white colour and save it doesn’t change and the images still sit in a black box. Any ideas or do I contact someone else?

    Thanks again you have been so helpful and responsive.
    Vanessa

    HI Melissa,

    Sorry two other queries:

    Logo — on the mobile preview my logo drops off the side of the layout

    Black menu bar with orange writing for the tablet & phone — can I change the colour of this to fit my design

    Thanks

    Ok, let’s work through these one at a time. The blog page you have still hasn’t been assigned to your posts page.

    When you follow this tutorial, do you have the “Blog” page you’ve created assigned to the Posts page?

    Great blog is sorted. Sorry I should have been able to work that out myself.

    Slideshow also sorted. Thank you!

    Just the other bits above outstanding and then I can start properly doing my content! Yay.

    Hi Melissa, sorry but I keep changing my background & header colour in the customizer and it doesn’t save? I’ve done it a million times now and it just reverts back to the colour I originally had it even after I have saved each change separately and it shows correctly in the preview.

    Hi Vanessa,

    We’re still working on the font issue for mobile, but perhaps a Happiness Engineer can help you with the problems with your background colors not saving? I’ll tag someone in who can better assist.

    Ok thanks Melissa. I did email them as I thought that may be the case, but if you can tag too it would be great.

    Hi Vanessa, I just cleared a setting on your site – could you try changing your colours again and let me know if it works?

    Thank you it does and is now working.

    The remaining critical outstanding issue is the header & body copy font changing depending gone device. The computer screen font is correct.

    Also the read me arrow in the blog posts turns to orange when you hover of it, can I amend this to fit with site design?

    Thanks again everyone. Hoping to finish the site this week and launch!

    Hi Vanessa,

    You can use this CSS snipped to change the color of the arrow hover (use your own colors, of course!):

    .grid-read-more:hover:before {background-color: blue; }

    The remaining critical outstanding issue is the header & body copy font changing depending gone device. The computer screen font is correct.

    Since this post is already really, really long, could you open a new thread to ask this question in? We’re unable to reproduce the issue and will have to tag some assistance in.
