Twenty Ten Theme

  1. @44calibre: Have you tried choosing, under page attributes, "one column no sidebar" instead of "default template"? Page attributes is in the rt-hand column when you're in edit page...
    Here's a page on mine that uses the one-column template: and one that uses the default template:

  2. @44calibreshakespeare: Unfortunately you're in the wrong forum - see the Stickies on the main page.

    THANK YOU !!

  4. I answered my own question re "about author" " is there a way to make the "About" the author of a post not show on each individual post?" that I asked here:

    Well, I did a work-around. I simply use the fake persona, the ghost author, who doesn't HAVE a profile, for all blog posts, by scrolling down, in edit post, to author, and choosing "her" as the author.

    My thanks to, which answered it here:

    Guess it's easy to find an answer...once you can figure out what search words to use!

  5. Forgive me if this has been talked about but there are nine pages of comments and I've already tried the search feature.

    I'm using twenty ten and have an issue with old posts.I have some older posts that occasionally are a big hit again (today, everyone seems to be searching mike rowe again) and I noticed that the hspace="" and vspace="" html tags no longer result in a white space around my images, so the text wrapped around the images in my older posts (where I used those tags) now butts right up to the image. This looks ugly. How come the html code for the spacing doesn't work? Has it gone the way of the italics and bold tags or is it a theme issue?

    Thanks much!

  6. Okay, I've just googled and see that <hspace="5"> and <vspace="5"> (for example) have been deprecated if used for <img> or <object> so what's the correction to go back and fix the old posts where it was used? Having a code I can paste in would be so much easier than going back and locating the image in my library and re-doing it using the editor. Is there a css code to replace it or does it have to be done in the stylesheet? If so... why isn't there a padding around images written into the theme?

    So many questions! lol. Thanks in advance.

  7. How can I change the default body copy font to a simple sans serif (Arial, etc.). I have Typekit but I am still baffled. I DO NOT know HTNL, so instructions along those lines are Greek to me.

    Any help is much appreciated.

  8. paulheagen's question also asked (and hopefully answered) here:

  9. Hello,

    All I would like to do is simply make different menus or pages that once you clicked on them showed all of your posts in that category...i.e. "Jetsetter" page lists all of your posts that are categorized under "travel". I'm using twenty ten this possible? I don't know html there a better theme that easily supports this?

  11. Using Twenty ten theme and creating more room on the front page by providing links to full articles. I'd like to use a thumbnail graphic with each blurb on the front page ... but something that doesn't show up in the main article/page, or that shows as a larger image. Any thoughts on creating a custom field for this?

    Screen shot of the page and a post on the front:


  12. We need to be able to see the actual blog. The site linked to your username isn't a wordpress.COM blog.

  13. Oh, and by the way, there aren't any "custom fields" at wordpress.COM. Those are only on self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG.

  14. I am using the Twenty Ten theme for a project that requires multiple pages, (100+). So far, I have been adding pages with titles to get my structure prior to populating the pages with content. Everything was working fine, but now the site is quite large, I am having problems accessing the editor for some, not all, pages. The editor page starts loading but the editor fails to appear. The right sidebar loads as far as the 'Page Attributes' widget (title only) but no further.The page isn't hanging as all browsers report that the page is completely loaded. You can view a screenshot of the problem here

    As previously mentioned, this is only happening for some pages, not all. I have disabled all plugins but this has not helped.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  15. @metaxa100: Judging from the screen capture and the URL where it is hosted, you appear to have a self-hosted WordPress.ORG blog and are in the wrong forum. This is WordPress.COM and things work very differently here from .ORG. So please ask your question at

    Sorry about that and thanks for the link.

  17. Turning Off Table Borders:

    I am creating a website for a client using this theme and can't get the table row borders to turn off (they appear to be very light gray). I have tried <table border="0">...</table>. I also made the <tr border="0"> and still nothing. Does anyone know a good fix for this issue?

  18. @bhauser: Hi. If your client's blog is on WordPress.COM, this article might help:

    This being said, please create a new thread next time. I'm not sure if your client's website uses Twenty Ten and if that explains your choice, but it's much easier for everyone if new threads are created whenever there is a new question. Thanks :-)

  19. @airodyssey: I actually have the theme on the clients site on their own domain using WordPress.ORG. The link you sent me to worked for my clients website. Thank you! Sorry for not opening up a new thread, I am new to using this forum and will make sure to open a new thread in the future.

  20. @bhauser: If you have future questions about a self-hosted WordPress.ORG, please ask them at . Certain things are common between. COM and .ORG but for the most part, there are huge differences between the way the two work.

  21. making the twenty ten theme to show excerpts on the home page: add || is_home() in loop.php file like this:

    <?php if ( is_archive() || is_search() || is_home) : // Only display excerpts for archives and search. ?>
    /*added is_home above */
    <div class="entry-summary">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div><!-- .entry-summary -->

    you should be seeing only excerpts in the home page now.
    note this is for the 3.0.1 themes

  22. @mediclawren, that won't work here. We have no access to the underlying wordpress or theme files at

    You need to familiarize yourself with the differences as this answer will just confuse things here.

  23. Hi guys,

    Is there a way to add a border or change the background color of a sidebar in 2010 without editing CSS?


  24. You can create colors in widgets but you cannot change the color of the sidebar area without editing the CSS.

  25. drat! I typed "widgets" when I meant to type "text widgets" above.

  26. Somehow I've lost the ability to choose "one column no sidebar" or "default template" in the attributes section of the page editor. Also, the editor won't display two columns even if I select number of columns = 2 in screen options. What have I done?

  27. Oops, forgot to say that I'm using the Twenty Ten theme on a hosted blog -

  28. I love Twenty Ten with the only exception being that I have yet to find an easy straight forward way of columnizing its layout in a magazine style. Is there such a way to give it this look and feel of a magazine?
