    I have the default set for posts to show on blog page, but they no longer due on Graphene unless I select by month or category. I wanted all the show (most recent first). When I preview my site http://bsidesmetal.com in other themes it shows my posts on the blog page without having to select month or category. I know it was working last night. I have no clue what happened. I can’t find the answer on the forum. Please help.

    All my posts still show up in the dashboard under posts and in their categories.

    Have You tried build in menu:

    http://bsidesmetal.com/wp-admin/nav-menus.php

    Allow me. I think You made a great job with the

    slider. Can You tell me/us how?

    If You want to change the blue colors in, say:

    http://bsidesmetal.com/?category_name=b-green

    h1.page-title {
    -pie-background: linear-gradient(#BABABA, #6E6E6E);
    background: #BABABA;
    background: linear-gradient(#BABABA, #6E6E6E);
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(#BABABA, #6E6E6E) repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0 0, 0 bottom, from(#BABABA), to(#6E6E6E));
    filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#BABABA', endColorstr='#6E6E6E'); /* for IE8 */
    text-shadow: 0 -1px 0 #000000;
    -moz-border-radius: 0 5px 0 0;
    }

    .block-button, .block-button:visited {
    -moz-border-radius: 5px 5px 5px 5px;
    -webkit-border-radius:5px;
    border-radius:5px;
    border: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
    display:block;
    font:bold 12px arial;
    text-decoration:none;
    padding:5px 15px 6px 15px;
    color:#FFFFFF;
    text-shadow:0 -1px 1px #000000;
    margin-top:10px;
    position:relative;
    float:right;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 0px #42454A;
    -webkit-box-shadow:0 0 0px #42454A;
    box-shadow:0 0 0px #42454A;
    background:#BABABA;
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(#BABABA, #6E6E6E) repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    background:-webkit-gradient(linear, 0 0, 0 bottom, from(#BABABA), to(#6E6E6E));
    background:linear-gradient(#BABABA, #6E6E6E);
    -pie-background: linear-gradient(#BABABA, #6E6E6E);
    }
    .block-button:hover{
    text-decoration:none;
    color:#FFFFFF;
    cursor:pointer;
    background:#D4D4D4;
    background:-moz-linear-gradient(#D4D4D4, #737373);
    background:-webkit-gradient(linear, 0 0, 0 bottom, from(#D4D4D4), to(#737373));
    background:linear-gradient(#D4D4D4, #737373);
    -pie-background: linear-gradient(#D4D4D4, #737373);
    }

    So far the built in menu idea of putting the category under the Blog page only shows the abbreviated posts. They don’t stream in complete like they are supposed to.

    For my slider I created a slider category and cropped all the images to 660px wide by 250px high (slider dimensions) uploaded all images into the category and then specified that the slider show that category. The slider has three views also. One is complete post view. That is what I used. The overlapping box kind of bugs me and so does the button to view post, but at least now my art is prominent on the front page.

    Thanks so much for the css on the blue. The blue was driving me crazy.

    Kim do you know of a way to shorten the width of the transparent dark gray bar on the slider? Or, eliminate it so that there is just images. Or, lighten the trasnparency of that color?

    Thought I would try. Can’t seem to find it anywhere.

    Are You sure the Blok link are:

    http://bsidesmetal.com/?page_id=117

    Thank You for the slider info.

    I see lots of ? for this πŸ™‚

    You still have some blue border on button:

    .full-sized .block-button, .full-sized .block-button:visited {
    border-color: #277EC0;
    bottom: 10px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 10px;
    }

    Maybe this will do: (You decide πŸ™‚

    .full-sized .block-button, .full-sized .block-button:visited {
    border-color: #6E6E6E;
    bottom: 10px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 10px;
    }

    Transparent gray bar on slider:

    You have:

    .full-sized .slider-entry-wrap {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7);
    height: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    right: 0;
    top: 0;
    width: 35%;
    }

    You can easy change 0.7 value for color. Say 0.5

    (I think ist great now πŸ™‚

    And width is now 35%

    But there is a button isue if width gets to small or 0%

    Under settings > reading > I have post page set as blog. I thought it would work and it should. What is weird is the blog shows correctly in other themes. This makes me think it will be very hard to correct.

    Something I think many times is that text size is to small

    or the ariel font is boring. Say, for size You have:

    .entry-content, .entry-content p, .slider_post_entry p, .entry-content ul, .entry-content ol, .comment-entry ol {
    color: #2C2B2B;
    font: 12px/20px arial;
    }

    Try this:

    .entry-content, .entry-content p, .slider_post_entry p, .entry-content ul, .entry-content ol, .comment-entry ol {
    color: #2C2B2B;
    font-family: georgia,verdana,tahoma,arial;
    font-size: 14px;
    }

    Well, I like georgia. But You can easy switch It with arial as first word πŸ™‚

    Sidebar You have:

    .sidebar, .sidebar p, .sidebar li {
    font-family: arial;
    font-size: 12px;
    }

    Maybe:

    .sidebar, .sidebar p, .sidebar li {
    font-family: arial,verdana,tahoma,georgia;
    font-size: 13px;
    }

    Just some ideas.

    Kim,

    Here is another request since you are really good with all of this. Can I space out my page titles on the navigation bar menu so that they equally space to fill the same length as the distance of the slider 660px. It is visually bothering me.

    Well, static page & a blog page is working.

    But there are other means, say:

    Your nav .menu:

    #nav .menu li a, #nav .menu li a:visited {
    font: 16px/24px arial;
    padding: 0 6px;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    Raise the number 6px in padding, say: 16px πŸ™‚

    Well, You can remove button:

    .block-button, .block-button:visited {
    display: none;
    }

    I am having trouble getting the button to remove. Is that the button on the slider? I have made the spacing and font suggestion changes. I like them. thanks

    I was contemplating if I should change the sidebar title font and also the navigation menu font. I am not sure though.
