Koi Theme

  1. I love this new theme to death, but I have one problem. After I decided to use it, I played around with the background colours and adding my own images, but then decided that I really liked the original background the best. I seem unable to get it back though, so I'm now wondering if anyone knows how to do that?

    Thank you for your help, and excuse me if this is a stupid question. I'm just a noob. ^^'

    The blog I need help with is marileechan.wordpress.com.

    Appearance>Background: delete color code from Color field, click Save Changes.

  3. Thank you very much! :)

  4. I can't find the social media buttons, not even the RSS feed. Aren't these included?
    Thanks.

  5. oops, sorry, found RSS, but not the others mentioned on the designer's page http://www.ndesign-studio.com/wp-themes/koi-theme

    That's for wordpress.ORG installs. And I strongly suspect that it's not part of the version of the theme we have here at wordpress.com. These are the methods for using social bookmarking on wordpress.com blogs and none of them can be set up for automatic display >

  7. We can use Publicize for Twitter and Facebook. See here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/ and the Twitter widget > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/twitter-widget/
    In addition there are 5 methods of posting to Facebook I'm aware of. See > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/12/importing-wordpress-com-post-snippets-into-a-facebook-fan-page/

  8. Thanks! I've been reading your blog and subscribed since ages - great information! I do use AddThis on all my blogs.
    Btw Shareaholic is a very easy way to post to Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, StumbleUpon, and many, many more.
    Happy blogging and thanks again for all your help!

    Where can i find the install for the Koi theme for wordpress.org?

  10. @alwayssaidsnape The designer of this theme, Nick La, is planning on releasing it soon to the WordPress.org themes directory.

    You can encourage him to do so by commenting on his announcement post: http://www.ndesign-studio.com/blog/koi-theme-release.

  11. @joniew,

    The addthis button you are using is inefficient. Please read this post to know why...
    How to use the Addthis button PROPERLY in the side bar of a wordpress.com blog

  12. Can you anyone request for automatic social media support at wp.com as it is really dump way of doing so manually. ( As it is on my blog! :-( )

  13. @ sanjidas

    thanks for letting me know, I followed the link and see the problem, but I do not understand how to add the code provided.
    What I want is a way for readers to be able to bookmark my blog, not individual posts..
    Is there perhaps and an easier way of doing it?
    Thanks for your help!

    There's no need to much around with code alterations to accomplish what you want. The AddThis widget can be installed on your WordPress.com blog with minimal effort. Please see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/addthis/

  15. Thanks Timethief - that's exactly how I have it set up. But if you follow the link provided by sanjidas, you will see there is a problem.

  16. Thanks,
    I just visited your blog and "yes" your AddThis button does exactly what you want it to do ie. allows the blogger to post their replies into the discussion, not individual posts. If you ever want to add social marks to your posts then there are several choices here > http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/koi-theme?replies=15#post-479668
    Happy blogging. :)

  17. I think you're right, I'm going to leave it just as it is and trust that people are on the homepage page when they bookmark and will realize if the url isn't the correct one. Thanks again and happy blogging to you too :-)))

  18. I'm happy if you are happy so you're welcome and blog on! :)

  19. Very happy indeed - I've got 8 blogs and was not relishing the idea of messing around with codes! You've saved my day and sanity :-))) And thanks again for the great job you do here!!

  20. @Timethief,
    I just visited your blog and "yes" your AddThis button does exactly what you want it to do ie. allows the blogger to post their replies into the discussion, not individual posts.

    The Addthis code that is provided officially is faulty. The staff knows that by now, because I contacted them.

    @joniew,
    I'm going to leave it just as it is and trust that people are on the homepage page when they bookmark and will realize if the url isn't the correct one.

    I wouldn't test the patience of my visitors this way. Because the Addthis button works the same way everywhere else except in wordpress.com. Anyway, best of luck with it !

  21. @joniew,

    Thanks for your help!

    Sorry for my late help. I can't cope with time these days...
    Anyway, here are the individual Addthis button links to be put in the side bars of your wordpress.com blogs. I have covered only your wordpress.com blogs.

    I do think it is better to depend on precision, and not just luck!

    You still have to go to the admin side of your blogs and change the Addthis codes you put previously, since I don't have access to your admin! :p

    The proper Addthis code to be put in a wordpress.com side bar (so that visitors can share the blog and not the blog post), this code has to be used:
    <a href="http://www.addthis.com/bookmark.php?&url=BLOG-URL&title=BLOG-TITLE"><img src="http://s7.addthis.com/static/btn/v2/lg-addthis-en.gif" alt="save and share">

    Please replace the term BLOG-URL with the actual url of the blog and replace BLOG-TITLE with the actual title of the blog.

    You have great blogs. I have seen all of them since I had to code the Addthis links for them. Blogging is a noble passion. Keep it up.

    psst: Maybe you can give me some pointers on how you manage time. I never run out of ideas, but only time... :(

  22. Oh my, I am so touched!! Thank you so very much for your help! I am also so encouraged.. I might start another blog... :-)))))
    " psst: Maybe you can give me some pointers on how you manage time. I never run out of ideas, but only time... :( "
    hahahaha, yes I too um overflowing with ideas and time seems to have a way of running away from me...
    But - I don't post daily! Unchained Hope is every Sunday, Unchained Peace every Thursday, Unchained Me when I'm inspired and the others are only once a month taking turns. So actually I only post 3 times a week.
    I find I can't keep up with bloggers who post daily - my Reader stresses me out and I click it all away!
    Thanks again... ....have a great day... and off go to have some fun with codes...:-)))
