Oxygen Theme - help with slider and featured posts

  1. 1) I activated the featured post sticky slider on my home page but want to get rid of the 'recent articles' and 'more articles' and have the footer areas right under the slider.

    2) If I leave widget area 2 blank - where the twitter and fb feed are currently located - the entire page distorts and content is moved there from the footer areas. Is there a way to stop this from happening?

    PLEASE HELP!

    The blog I need help with is lyfstylevents.com.

  2. Anyone?

  3. Hi there,

    1. It's possible to hide those "Recent Articles" and "More articles" sections with CSS, available through the Custom Design upgrade. If you get the upgrade, I'd be happy to help with the CSS.

    2. Can you provide a screenshot of what you see when you remove widgets from Sidebar 2? I was unable to repeat this on my test blog, so a screenshot will help me troubleshoot the issue. Thanks!

  4. Thank you so much Michiecat for responding. Would you advise that I purchase the upgrade instead of buying a premium theme? Or is the upgrade included in the premium package?

    I have absolutely no experience with CSS and would absolutely appreciate any help you could provide.

  5. Hi there,

    The Custom Design upgrade is not included with premium themes, so you would have to get them separately. If you buy the Custom Design upgrade, you can use it with any theme.

    As to whether you should purchase a premium theme -- it's up to you and what you feel will work best for your site.

  6. Hi again,

    As long as I can remove those sections and possibly add some social media buttons I think I'm okay with this theme. But if there is another you think would work best for a small and relatively new event planning company I'm open to your suggestions.

    When I go to buy the upgrade it says:
    "Please note, however, that the Custom Design upgrade does not allow direct theme editing or the upload of templates or custom themes."

    Will that affect us removing it? Or can I go ahead and buy?

  7. Hi Michiecat,

    I purchased the upgrade and would love some direction as to how to remove the sections. Thank you!

    This thread is tagged for moving to the CSS Forum where you can get help with your CSS editing.

  9. Hi @lyfstylevents,

    Go to Appearance > Custom Design > CSS in your Dashboard, and paste the following code into the CSS Editor:

    .page-template-showcase-php .recent-articles,
    .page-template-showcase-php .more-articles {
         display: none;
    }
    .page-template-showcase-php #tertiary {
        margin: 0;
        width: 100%;
    }
    .page-template-showcase-php #tertiary .widget {
        float: left;
        margin-right: 5%;
        width: 45%;
    }

    This will hide the Recent Articles and More Articles sections. It'll also move the right sidebar 2 (currently Twitter and Facebook) into the center, with the widgets positioned into two columns side by side. I wasn't sure if/how you wanted those widgets to appear, so I experimented!

    Let me know how this works for you. If you want to hide the Facebook and Twitter widget area, you can replace this:

    .page-template-showcase-php .recent-articles,
    .page-template-showcase-php .more-articles {
         display: none;
    }

    in your CSS with this:

    .page-template-showcase-php .recent-articles,
    .page-template-showcase-php .more-articles,
    .page-template-showcase-php #tertiary {
         display: none;
    }
  10. Many many thanks Michiecat!
