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).

Why there are 2 thumbnail system to choose from?

All ZenVerse themes already have their own thumbnail system before WordPress introduces Featured Image system in WordPress 2.9. To continue support all Zenverse theme users who were still using the old thumbnail system, we need to keep the old thumbnail system.
You can choose the priority of the thumbnail system being used, seperately for Post Thumbnail and Post Image, in the theme options page.

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.

Social Bookmarking using Sexy Bookmarks Plugin

You need to install Sexy Bookmark plugin in order to show the social bookmark buttons under “Share This Post” menu. Please make sure you set the “Menu Location” to “Manual Mode” in the plugin settings 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 deactivate the plugin.

Hello Zen;

it’s too bad you haven’t done fluid-width themes for a while.

monoshade & black-tribe are your best themes, by far.
