When uploading your pictures, first make the 611x300 the feature image for each post. Then if you want to add more pictures to the post, add them separately, and they don't need to be 611x300
The test page, was for you to test things out without having to mess the work you've done. I just wanted to be safe.
You're trial expires after 7 days from the original activation
You won't loose any data. Only a red banner will show up until you purchase the license.
For now, I think you're coming along very well.
Keep the WP Socializer deactivated till you have your post working the way you want them.
OK, I've gone ahead and purchased the license so now we have to make it work!
I followed all your instructions to the letter (I think) and I presume I must be doing something wrong because it still isn't working.
If you look at the featured images you'll see 3 of them are 611 x 300
I can only get the default setting to work (with an empty home page) - both Magazine 1 & 2 are not showing images.
Are you able to log back in and see what I've done wrong? I don't know what else to try (I'm sure I can't be the only guy to have this problem.....can I?)
I'm sure this is something really simple (to you) in which case I apologise,
Of course I can take a look again. Do you have all your posts backed up? I'd like to start with a fresh install. If I have your permission I'd like to re-install Socrates.
You don't lose any data when the trial expires.. the only difference is you'll see a red bar at the top of your site that says the theme needs to be upgraded..
I'm guessing that Fred's magazine test is working correctly but I do not know.
Just tried to log into the site. Looks like you did THE RIGHT thing, you changed your password. That's good.
I just wanted to check one more thing. On the categories make sure you named it "featured" with a D at the end. So please double check that for me will you?
OK, I went to Tools and clicked on Export (Download Export File) and saved it on my Desktop for now, so I presume it's safe for you to re-install? Presumably I can re-install that file in the new version?
I fixed the issue. take a look at the site now.
I had to recreate (deleted, then added it again) the featured category. I also made sure your activation code works.
Since I re-installed Socrates for you, you lost your header. You will have to upload that jpg file once again. - this is normal every time we have to upgrade, or re-install.
Other than that, I think you're good to go!
Thanks for all the help.
also make sure you change your password again.
Well done! Thanks for fixing that - really appreciate your time and effort.
Last question: is there a way of fixing the other issue, being that if you click on any blog posts from the Home Page, no problem; but if you go to the Blog tab, for some reason there are 2 of every image...?
With each blog post, I set the image as a Featured Image and also inserted it into the post itself. I've tried removing the inserted images, but when I do that, no images show up at all when I click on the blog post title link.
Not the end of the world if you can't find a solution, just looks a bit odd having 2 of every image that's all.
Why don't you try to put that image in the middle of the post. That way you can put a "more" tag right before the picture and you won't see the "double picture" effect on that page.
Just an idea.
The reason that's happening is because you're using a "featured" image and the same image at the top of the post.
Give it a try, it might work for you.
Great idea Fred - will do.
Thanks again for your help
