New to blogging – Need help
AnonymousOctober 27, 2013 at 11:58 am #8338
I am new to blogging and I installed wordpress and the Graphene theme (which looks great). I am puzzled with a couple of things:
– how to put the categories and calendar widgets in the sidebar? (when I place the sidebar location and save it won’t put it, it’ll only work with the footer bar)
– how to reduce the height of the posts (content area) in the main page?

2 columns with sidebar right

For the first item, try standard debugging techniques. A list can be found here:
For second item, you are showing full posts in the front page, so I’m not sure by “reducing height”. Have you tried using excerpts on the front page?

Thank you my dear friend,
for the widget area I just added Graphene Before Sidebar1 and used it instead of the Sidebar1.
For the excerpts, “using excerpts in front page wasn’t working before but not it “miraculously” worked.
There’s no try… either you do or you don’t.ModQuote:For the excerpts, “using excerpts in front page wasn’t working before but not it “miraculously” worked.
This may have been because of a browser or server cache.Quote:for the widget area I just added Graphene Before Sidebar1 and used it instead of the Sidebar1.
Did this work?
If not, do you have any plugins that affect widgets?
