Permalinks/Breadcrumb and Homepage issue

resolved (7 posts) (2 voices)



    Three issues with a new Elegance deployment:

    1) According to the breadcrumb, blog posts are located at "Home->(name of post)->(name of post)" rather than "blog->(name of post)"

    A blog index page has been created, but has not been set as the Blog page within the Elegance theme options.
    WordPress permalinks are set to /%category%/%postname%/
    The page URL lists the post at "(domain)/category/name of post", which is how I would like it to be.
    No plugins installed, apart from WordPress SEO.

    2) Having problems with the homepage. I've set up homepage content within the "Homepage" tab in Elegance theme options, but right at the bottom there's an <h1> tag that says "Home", which I'm assuming comes from the (blank) page (and menu) that I've created called "Home". However, if I delete this blank page then WordPress gives me a 404 when reloading the page. What am I doing wrong?

    3) For the menu, I would like the 'hover' condition to change the menu text background color, and the text itself to be a different color when the appropriate page is visited (e.g. when a visitor goes to the "About Us" page, that menu text is a different color.

    I've added:
    .jqueryslidemenu a:hover { background: #red !important; }
    which is fine for the hover, but I can't get the text color change to work. Can you please help?

    Hello KEXINO,

    1. You need to set a blog page up in Dashboard -> your theme -> Blog.

    2. Use the Wordpress menus for complete control,

    3. Setup Wordpress menus and then send us a link to your page and we'll show you what ID you need to use to target that menu.

    Thanks Elliott,

    1) I've set-up the blog page in my theme's dashboard as advised. However none of the existing posts are showing when I go to the blog page. Furthermore the breadcrumb is now showing Home->(name of post)->Blog->(name of post)

    2) I'm not sure what you mean. I am already using WordPress menus. Do you mean that I should set-up the homepage in WordPress and not using the "Homepage" theme options?

    I have removed the "custom homepage text" from the theme options, and placed all the HTML into the WordPress page called "Home". I have nominated this page to show "additional homepage text" in the theme options. However now the content is being displayed twice - even though it's no longer in the theme options panel!

    3) Can I DM you the link to the page, instead of posting it here?

    Thanks in advance

    1. Send us a link and paste the permalink structure your using here. Deactivate all of your plugins.

    2. You can customize everything about your homepage in Dashboard -> your theme -> Homepage. If you want to add a link to your homepage in your menu then create a custom link for your menu. If your not sure how to do this then see the link in my previous post.

    3. Sure.

    Thanks for pointing out that I had a static page inadvertently set under Dashboard->Settings->Reading.

    Can you now let me know how to change the menu text color to show which page a visitor is on?

    You can target the current page link in your menu like so,

    .current_page_item a, .current_page_ancestor a { }

    Fantastic! That worked a treat. Thank you so much for your help, Elliott.
