How to enable Post Formats

WordPress 3.1 includes a new feature called Post Formats that lets the site admin enable additional post formats besides the default one termed as "Standard" when creating/editing a post.

To use this feature, add the following to your theme's functions.php:

// ADD POST FORMATS
add_theme_support( 'post-formats', array( 'aside', 'chat', 'gallery', 'image', 'link', 'quote', 'status', 'video', 'audio' ) );

If you have not used functions.php in BuilderChild-Default so far, download this file, name it as functions.php and upload it to your child theme directory, i.e., to wp-content/themes/BuilderChild-Default.

How to place text at the right side of clickable header image

Default-header.png

These instructions are provided as an example to have a header image in a HTML module which when clicked takes the visitor to home page. At right side of the module is some text coming from a widget as can be seen in the above screenshot.

1. Edit your layout and add a HTML module.

Paste the following in module's text area:

<a href="<?php bloginfo('url');?>">Quality Care Homes</a>

Replace "Quality Care Homes" in the above with your site's keyword-rich title or any other text of your choice.

Set 1 Right sidebar and a width of your choice. In this example, we are using 300px with the layout width being 960px.

Enable PHP and save the module and layout.

2. Add the following at the end of your theme's style.css:

.builder-module-1 {
	background: url("http://qualitycarehomes-ca.helpplanet.net/wp-content/uploads/quality-care-homes-banner-logo.jpg") no-repeat;
	height: 150px;
}

.builder-module-1 .builder-module-element a {
	display: block;
	width: 660px;
	height: 150px;
	text-indent: -9999px;
}

.builder-module-1 .builder-module-sidebar {
	background: transparent;
	padding-top: 0;
	padding-bottom: 0;
	font-weight: bold;
	text-align: center;
}

.builder-module-1 .builder-module-sidebar  .widget {
	padding-top: 1em;
}

.address {
	font-size: 150%;
}

.phone {
	font-size: 120%;
}

The above assumes that header is always the first module in all layouts through out the site.

The following should be changed in this CSS code:

  • URL of background image for .builder-module-1
  • Height of .builder-module-1 .builder-module-element a to match that of the header image
  • [Optional] Width of .builder-module-1 .builder-module-element a to the width of your desired clickable area

3. At Appearance -> Widgets, drag a text widget and paste the following:

<div class="address">Konihowski Care Home</div>
<div class="phone">Phone: (306) 931-0075</div>
<br/><hr/>
<div class="address">Maguire Nursing Home</div>
<div class="phone">Phone: (306) 382-5656</div>

Use text that is relevant to your site instead of the above.
