Per the plugin information about FrameMarket/GridMarket, its suppose to be super easy to set up. I’m still trying to do that two weeks later and it still doesn’t work.
Here’s the problems I need help with:
1. I have my site set up to be global and want the front page to show the products from all the members. The global setting has been chosen but the categories do not show up on the front page.
Here’s the instructions that I found:
“you would need to use the global shortcode and add support for shortcodes in widgets. That can be done in the theme, just add the following to your themes functions.php file:
add_filter( ‘widget_text’, ‘shortcode_unautop’:wink:;
You can then use the shortcodes within a widget.”
A. What are shortcodes?
B. GridMarket is not set up with a widget selection for the side column for categories. The categories box already shows in the left hand column. It just isn’t showing the categories. I don’t want to run around in circles adding code that doesn’t fix the problem. I just want to know how to I fix this!
2. When I first got WPMU, there was a way to select whether I wanted to let people have a blog for free upon signing up for an account. I do not know where this setting is after all the updates. I do not want to give free blogs because of the amount of spam sign-ups received.
A. Where is the setting to not allow free blogs?
B. Is there any other setting that would need to occur to ensure that a paid account does get a blog?
