Recommendations for User

Manual Excerpt

To make your blog looks better, you need to include a manual excerpt for every post (like my blog). You can add that while editing or adding new post. You can, however, leave your excerpt empty and wordpress will automatically make an excerpt for you, but all HTML tags would be auto removed.

Post Image & Thumbnails

Post Thumbnail is a square image of size 125 x 125 pixels, shown at blog index, related posts and search.
Post Image is an image of size 550 x 190 pixels, shown at single post page, below the post title.
To beautify your blog, try to include post thumbnails for every post (if possible).

Featured Category

In most cases, not all your featured posts are in the same category. You can create a new category (let’s say I called it : Featured) and choose it as the “Featured Category” at the theme option page.

WP-PageNavi Plugin Conflict

Some users reported that WP-PageNavi plugin causes the sidebar and footer to be missing. If you have WP-PageNavi plugin installed, you should either deactivate the plugin or remove the built-in WP-PageNavi plugin to avoid conflict.

Here I am again with more questions. First question is: How do I get the related posts on my pages as well? I use the pages ( without sidebar ) for high quality galleries, but the related posts don’t show there. The share buttons etc. work on the pages but the related posts do not. I understand pages and posts cannot be related on tags since the pages don’t have any, but I always link the page from a post so the same related posts could be used.

Is there a way to get the related posts at the bottom of pages as well? I would have to exclude some pages though ( contact, about, etc )

Question two: I’m looking for a way to change the Widgets in the footer, the widgets present now are standard and cannot be changed. I would like to insert new widgets there.

Question Three: When enabling/disabling widgets in the lunated options ( like RSS feed, recent comments/latest posts tab ) I cannot set the order of the widgets. I can’t decide which is more important and should be placed higher on the page. Why is this not possible? :(

I’ve been using the theme for almost a year now, I really hope more features ( like the ones above ) will be added so I can keep using the theme for another year or even more =)

Kind regards,

Question 4: I use a plugin called “page links to” so posts get re-directed to the pages that hold the galleries. Sadly when someone comments on that page, the post is still saying no comments (on the front-page).

I’m using that same plugin with the Suffusion theme on another website of mine and there it somehow blends comments from the posts and pages together ( when the “page links to” url is given in the post )

The plugin makes sure that everything in the post links to wherever you like, even if they click the title, the read more or the thumbnail, everything will link to the url you desire.

I know this might be difficult to implement but if you can help me get this done I would be very thankful ;)

Numaga says:

Hi Zen,

If you add the option to enable “Related Posts” on pages as well, and also the possibility to change the order of the lunated widgets (combined with the other widgets) i might just send over another donation =)

If you need more info, contact me plz.

I saw your problem. I think that is caused by your plugin because it does not happen to me. See it

Skin Cream Reviews says:

I admire the valuable data you offer in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and feature my kids test up right here generally. I’m reasonably sure they’ll be informed a whole lot of new stuff here than anybody else!

Numaga says:

Too bad support for this theme is close to nothing. Guess I have to find another!

Darius says:

sorry if I missed it but what happens with custom changes during an update. Is the theme using child theme or do we make own backup before updating the theme.

zen says:

No, its not a child theme.

Forfait mobile says:

Appreciate the theme. It’s one of the few that has everything that I’m looking for in it already (including thumbnails).


Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
If you know of any please share. Many thanks!

Cameron says:

Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately this, like you wrote the
book in it or something. I believe that you just could do with some % to power the message house a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
