Duster Showcase Posts Not Appearing

  1. Nope. Something Duster was doing wrong. We kicked it into shape for you. :)

  2. REally love this theme. But I am not understanding how to take advantage of a couple features. What do you mean by "you can have your blog on another page" ??? How do you do that? Is there somewhere to go to get that set of directions?
    I am not HTML savvy, btw.

    Also, what does it mean to "pull" blockquotes and photos into the margins. Sounds cool, but I am clueless.

    Thank you for your help.

  3. @dkaysdays Check this support document for some directions. You can specify both a Front page and a Posts page.

    In order to achieve the "pull" look you would need to jump into editing your post in the HTML view. You can see an example here:

    Hope this helps you and sets you on the right path.

  4. Y'all are freakin' amazing! Thank you!!!!

  5. By the way, is there any way to have a widget that pulls random posts--as opposed to recent posts-- at each visit to the site? My main blog is a family history site, and I would love to have old posts periodically resurface in an "in your face" kind of way. There is a theme that incorporates such a random post widget. But it is not available as a separate widget that I know of.

  6. Yep! You can craft a link in a text widget with your blog address and "/?random" at the end. It's super fun. :)

  7. Hmm.

    I tried going to widgets, opening a text widget and after naming it, typing in my address and what you said "/?random"

    Literally. I pressed save and the widget appeared--with my address. then I put my address inside< > and the text disappeared when I saved.

    So I think I need an HTML lesson. *sigh*.
    Is there a support document that would explain crafting a link?

  8. Hold the phone! I figured it out with a quick google for html stuff.

    This is Super cool stuff. Thanks for your time.

    Hi everyone -

    My featured posts and Ephemera are displaying just fine, but I can't get the Recent Posts to appear in the right-side area under the featured post (not my left sidebar, but the area that's a part of the Duster template). Please help!

    I love this theme so much, by the way! I was wondering, is there any way to have something else in that Recent Posts area under my featured post. Could I have the Ephemera feature there inside?

    Sorry, this is for my blog:

    Also, is it still not possible to make past posts show up in the Ephemera? I haven't been able to.

    TIA everyone!

  11. My Duster Theme doesn't fit the whole width. What can be wrong? The image is large enough (I think), 1280x800px. Link: Hope someone can help me. Thanks.

  12. This is a link >
    This is the link on the footer of your blog "Proudly powered by WordPress "

    I’m sorry but that blog is not a free blog from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM so we cannot help you with it. WordPress.COM blogs and installs operate on different code. The correct support forum to get support for that blog and the version of the Duster theme you have on it is here. > http://wordpress.ORG/support

    For more clarity please read the sticky post at the head of this forum or the summary provided by Staff in the support documentation.

    Hello wordpress experts!
    I'm new to the duster theme and to wordpress.
    I just changed over from Freshy because it was giving me formatting issues and I just got featured on poppressed!
    I have been trying to make a featured page but have been unsuccessful.
    I cant see where the settings > reading buttons are.
    Can someone help?

  14. hey, @themeshaper thanks for the tip on linking to a random post! I love it!

  15. I don't know why I can't get an image as featured [large format] ... what am I doing wrong?

    I follow the instructions to the point, set the size of the featured image to large and it's 1024 x 768 or so.. I've set the post to 'Sticky', but no matter what I do, it just shows up as ordinary. Meaning ...the post is sticky alright, but the image is just like any other image in a post.

    Could anyone please try to figure out what's wrong -- I'm going nuts with this..

  17. Thank you, Timethief ... I see now. One has to click on the title.

    That was a very good link.

    Now I'm going to go and find myself another theme.

  18. You're welcome and happy blogging. :)

  19. One has to click on the title? That's not what the instructions say. Instructions say that for a large featured image on the showcase page you need to use a 1000px wide image and set the “Large” option in Settings>Media to the same width.
