I don't understand how to change the panel beneath the header that lists all links

    Hello folks!

    I am not very experienced with making changes in the theme. However, in one of the previous versions I adjusted the section underneath the header and allowed only certain links to show there.

    My website is http://www.english.andreadauber.de.

    I would like to reduce the number of links that automatically write into this section. For example, I just added a new post today, and the theme automatically adds the link to that post into that section.

    I’ve tried pretty much everything in wordpress, including searching through the editor, but I just can’t figure out how to adjust that top panel.

    Your help is much appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Use custom menus – http://blog.kjodle.net/2011/08/25/how-to-create-and-use-custom-menus-in-wordpress/

    If you don’t have custom menus, WordPress will put all of your pages in the default menu. But it doesn’t put posts in the menu.

    Dear Prasanna!

    Thanks for that link! It actually worked!

    Now that I’m on a roll, I have another question:

    You might see that in the slider, there’s a German link “Ganzen Beitrag ansehen”, which simply means “read full article”.

    Where in the style sheet can I substitute “Ganzen Beitrag ansehen” with “read full article”?

    Thanks for your help!

    All best,

    If you don’t want to use the German language for the theme, simply change the WP_LANG value in your wp-config.php file.

    Hi Syahir,

    I’ve looked around everywhere but I cannot locate the file. I use filezilla to upload files to the database. I go from subdomains > english (because I have two subdomains) > httpdocs or > httpsdocs, and there I clicked through every folder but I cannot find the file. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    IIRC, wp-config.php is usually in the root of the wordpress directory.

    Hello Kenneth,

    I am sorry, but I can’t execute the task.

    I located the wp-config.php file in my directory. I downloaded it, opened it in the editor, and tried to change the language value. However, how exactly do I do that? It tells me to go to the folder wp-content/languages to change de_DE.mo. But what do I change it what? The file name into en_EN.mo?

    Thanks for your help!

    Thanks Syahir! I actually ended up installing a plugin and that helped tremendously!

    A new problem pops up every day. I just realized that previously uploaded and connected pdfs cannot be opened anymore. I tried to link a pdf in one of my posts, but it doesn’t work the way it used to. Now it links to an entire new site, when before the click on the link either opened up the pdf in another or in the same window, depending on how you defined it. Is this not possible anymore?

    I found this post here: https://forum.graphene-theme.com/graphene-support/pdf-files-on-homepage

    I’ll try that first and if it doesn’t work, I’ll open a new discussion.
