EduBlogs Home Page Theme Not Showing Latest News

Hi there,

I can’t find documentation for this theme, can you point me in the right direction?

My main question is that the Latest News feature isn’t displaying anything. I have recent posts, but they’re not appearing. Do they have to be tagged or categorized in a particular way?

My site is here: http://www.thepodcasthost.com

Next, I’m trying to show a custom menu on the home page via a widget. I set it as normal, but the menu itself will not appear. I can see the widget header, but it’s blank before that. Any suggestions?

Your help is appreciated,

Colin

    There’s something quite wrong – I’ve just tried to add a categories widget and it’s stating ‘No categories’ even though there are definitely categories on the site. This is an established site with a fair bit of content already.

    Hi @colin

    Welcome to the forums!

    Basic theme installation information can be found under the theme’s usage tab:

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/the-edublogs-homepage-theme/#usage

    Apart from that, I’m afraid this theme does not have any specific usage instructions other than what can be found inline in the settings & options.

    I just installed and activated it on a test site, and the categories & news display as they should.

    Have you tested with all plugins deactivated to rule out the possibility of a script conflict?

    What version of WordPress are you running on that site?

    Hi Patrick, thanks for getting back to me.

    I’m running 3.5 – haven’t upgraded to 3.6 yet. It’s a multisite and used an older version of this theme until a few months back. It all worked fine then. I’ll try working with the plugins, but I can’t see how they would stop the theme from finding recent posts. Do you know how it draws the recent posts? Is it any recent blog post at all?

    Thanks,

    Colin

    Hi Patrick, sorry was writing back with a reply to this earlier, but got called away.

    Not long after I wrote that last post I discovered that it was the 3rd RSS feed that was causing the problem – it caused the slow load and stopped the rest of the page functioning properly. Very strange.

    Anyway, seems ok as long as I omit that particular feed so I’ll leave it for now – might be a validation issue with the RSS or similar.

    Thanks for your help
