I use the Pure theme for a class website where students publish their writing assignments. Though I can click through and discover the name on each single post page, I would like the “Show Posts” widget on the homepage to display the author’s name as well. Where is the widget file kept and what should I add?
(By the way, I think a “show author” check box should really be standard on the widget.)May 23, 2012 at 12:52 pm #3150
Yes, some extras are coming to these widgets soon. Though it is easy for the options for these become rather over loaded, so we have tried to keep it simple.
Adding the author would require adding code carefully to \base\lib\widgets\show-widgets.php
The function that does all the work is los_showPosts(). this is used by the widgets and the shortcode.
You would need to add a line of code around line 330 to put in the author, something like:
$output .= '<div class="entry-author">'.get_the_author().'</div>'
But as I say this may well appear in the next theme update.May 23, 2012 at 2:06 pm #3152
Actually scrub all that.. we just released an update that adds author, tags and categories to the options available.
how about that for a response!May 24, 2012 at 5:34 am #3161
Wow! Ok, I’ll give the new theme a try.
I was having a little trouble updating to 2.1—for some reason all of the styling (for everything, including the dashboard menus for the theme) would disappear if you activated the theme a second time or happened to be logged in while installing the theme via FTP—I’ll certainly pop over for help if needed, but here’s hoping it all goes smoothly.May 24, 2012 at 6:13 am #3163
Unfortunately, the problem persists. If I unzip the update, upload it via FTP (I’m using Coda) into my buddypress themes folder (right next to the working version), and activate it, none of the style work. The new features work great, but the theme does not.May 24, 2012 at 8:36 am #3167
You don’t put it in your buddypress themes folder. It goes in wp-content/themes/.
The unzipped folder livingos_Xi should be inside this folder.
Alternatively you can use the WordPress theme install from the dashboard. The quirck with this is that you have to delete the theme first to install the new version, but don’t worry you won’t lose your settings.May 24, 2012 at 11:18 am #3168
Ok. I’ve now uploaded the theme to the wp-content/themes folder. Unfortunately, I have the same problem. Even a few of the icons in the dashboard (events and features) are failing to load. The site loads with minimal styling (accent colors and web fonts load) but otherwise looks as though the css is failing—and the theme control panel is lacking any styling.May 24, 2012 at 4:31 pm #3172
OK, Try re-downloading the theme and installing. (Yes I know that sounds lame, but sometimes files get corrupt in transition). It sounds like it is missing stylesheets.

I will try again later today. Unfortunately, there would be some privacy issues involved, so I think I’ll have to crack this on my own.May 25, 2012 at 7:59 am #3185
Or just a url would let us confirm that it is a stylesheet issue.
