New Socrates update 2.03...header showing but not ad
Now all my headers are showing, whether the pages are in "no sidebars", "sales page" or "default" mode.
However, the top adbar, which shows if I select default mode (http://challenge4kidz.com) does not show if I select "no sidebars" or "sales page" mode (http://challenge4kidz.com/thanks/)
Yes, I do have the adbar checked in the layout setting of Socrates, in addition to the individual page settings.
Help? (We're almost there!)
I have verified this issue. It will need to be resolved by the dev team.
Great! Can you reply here when they fix it? (BTW, I'm also using WP 3.0)
PS Once these issues get fixed, this is going to be one of the easiest themes to use. I have zero experience installing wp or wp themes but learned this yesterday and couldn't believe how fast it was once you "get it." Looking forward to the rest of the fixes.
Thanks for pointing this bug out guys. I am sending the fix over to Dan now to include in the version we currently have posted but in the mean time you can fix it yourself by finding this line in topAd.php, salespage.php, fullpage.php and squeezepage.php. It should be at the top of each file.
And change it to this in each file:
$custom_fields = get_post_custom();
This is only an issue if you are using WP 3.0 if anyone is wonder why they aren't seeing it in 2.X.
$custom_fields = get_post_custom($post->ID);
Dan or I will post here once we get the version with the fix up in the downloads area, should be in the next few hours.

I'm so excited, I have to toot my own horn.
I never did anything "php" before, nor have I ever installed a wordpress blog or any theme, nor have I ever used my cpanel file manager.
Thanks to Socrates' ease of use (and a few glitches I mentioned in the support thread that were QUICKLY answered, even with a few do-it-yourself options), I learned all of that since yesterday.
I'm SOOO excited! You techies out there are but for someone who really enjoys technology but hasn't had a chance to delve in there much, it's been an absolute blast!!!
Thanks Socrates, Joel, Dan and your awesome team!
BTW, after googling "edit php" to find out what to use to edit that kind of file, I did it and my site is now fixed. Thanks!!!
I just uploaded the new zip.
Haven't even read about the bug yet, just fixed it.
Dang Dan! Already!?! And I was having so much fun playing techie!! LOL!
Page has disappeared
I have just published my first post, but now the page wouldn't load any longer!
I can't access the admin area. The admin user link: http://www.newsocialmedia.co.uk/wp-admin is not working. Could you check this for me, please?
That's an install page.. and not something you want to access or make public, I've edited it.
Your site is loading fine for me and your posts
You still need to setup permalinks though.
Settings > Permalinks
Change custom structure to: /%postname%/
Thanks for this. But when i load the site in my FF browser, all the formatting disappears, and in Google chrome, it comes up as a parked site! What browser are you using? How can I access my admin page? I used to see it in
http://www.newsocialmedia.co.uk/wp-login.php, its not coming up.
