A bug in Chateau

  1. I have chosen another theme, but liked Chateau and tried it out. However, blockquotes do not work in comments. Perhaps someone should look into it.

    The blog I need help with is choiceindying.com.

  2. Hello there,
    I have noticed the same thing on my personal blog which is wearing the Chateau theme. I hope Staff will fix this as it's tedious having to post comments and then edit them to insert blockquotes.

  3. This has been reported in another thread, so at some point, probably, possibly staff will see it and fix it. The do monitor the themes forum so just check back every once in a while to see when they fix it.

  4. I recently selected Chateau as my theme, and have by and large been happy with it. However, a strange quirk (or at least it seems strange to me) keeps happening. When I create a widget/menu of a list of my students' blogs, the list goes to the very top of my page (where I have not assigned it, and do not wish the blogs' names to be), and replaces the 'about' button (which I want to be there). Any advice on how to fix this? I just want the student blogs list either on the right side of the screen, or at the bottom. I would like to have the 'about' link on the top. Thanks

    When I create a widget/menu of a list of my students' blogs, the list goes to the very top of my page (where I have not assigned it, and do not wish the blogs' names to be), and replaces the 'about' button (which I want to be there).

    Are you referring to a custom menu that displays links to pages, and/or categories and/or custom links in the top horizontal menu of your blog? If so the conventional structure only display links to Pages. If you create a custom menu you can choose which Pages you want to display. You do not need to use a custom menu widget to do this.

  6. Thanks for the quick response. I am trying to create a custom menu, I believe. I have gone to the 'appearances' tab, then selected 'menus,' then 'create menu.' I then titled my menu 'databases' and added a link to the Avalon Project at Yale. I then saved the menu.

    From there, I went to 'widgets' and placed the custom menu in one of the footer sections. 'Avalon Project' appeared in the footer, where I wished it to be.

    However, at the top of the page, where there was previously an 'about' link, an 'avalon project' link has now replaced the about link. How can I make the 'databases' (on which the avalon project and other links will be placed) only appear in the footer, and _not_ replace the about button at the top of the page?

  7. What you will have to do is to create a custom menu for the primary top menu location as well and then put only the specific page that you want into that menu. Make sure and select your saved menu for the top from the "primary location" pulldown in the theme locations module at upper left and click save after doing so.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. HTML elements in comments in Chateau now respects the theme style.

    Thanks!

  9. Thanks so much. I just made a test comment and used HTML for blockquotes and it worked well. :)
