Sunspot to Spun?
I would like to change my theme from Sunspot to Spun, but no idea how to do it. Using preview only shows current layout-what I would like to do is put each book in a circle with a circle for about, blog and updates. Is that possible?
I’m utterly lost. I’ve loved Sunspot but am ready for a change and new direction for 2016.
The blog I need help with is brickoneil.com.
Hi there – Spun displays a circular image for each post in your blog – either the post’s featured image, or the first image attached to the post.
what I would like to do is put each book in a circle with a circle for about, blog and updates.
That’s not quite how Spun works – each circle corresponds to one post, it’s not possible to link them to pages (like your About page) or the blog index itself.
If you’re looking for a theme with a static front page that lets you link to three separate pages below that, perhaps Sela would work for you?
You could use those three widget areas below the main featured box to link to About, Blog, and Updates.
If you need further help with anything, just let me know!
What i’m really looking for is to showcase each page as a picture on the static front page. Is there a theme for that?
You could certainly use Sela like that – there’s no obligation to add text in any of those front-page widget areas, you could just include images if you wanted.
Or maybe the menu as pictures on the page instead of block style menus?
I’m not seeing how to do that on the Sela customize page. I’m not understanding the process, sorry.
After you would set up Sela according to the setup guide – setting a static front page, assigning the front page template to it, etc. – you would add one text widget in each of the three Front Page widget areas, like you see on the demo:
In each of those widget areas, you could add the code for an image, with a link to the page you’d like to link it to. For example, this is what’s in one of the text widgets on the demo:
<a href="http://selademo.wordpress.com/page-templates/full-width-page/"><img src="https://selademo.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/mg_9371-1.jpg" /></a>
You might like to first set up a test site to play around with Sela to get you more comfortable with it. It’s a great way to play with settings before switching over a live site.
alright, i’ve figured it out, copy/paste pic and link individually.
