    Hi Daniel,

    I could really use your help.

    I went into Theme settings and selected “Gallery” for all Views but I am unable to get an image to appear on the home page slider.

    Here is the situation

    1. I must manually copy the image to server folder (wp-content/uploads). I do this because If I try to use WordPress’s media upload it gives me a “file can not be moved” error (even though I have set the permissions to 777). Nontheless, the photo appears in a browser if you link to http:// … mysite… /wp-content/uploads/photoname.jpg

    2. I select the lower right hand option to “set featured image” which brings up the WordPress dialog (the same had I clicked on Upload/Insert) and then I choose “From URL” option and then enter the link to http:// … mysite… /wp-content/uploads/photoname.jpg

    The problem is I see the Post’s header text in the home page slider but not the photo (it just remains black). If I click on the photo it does take me to the Post where the photo appears.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really like your themes.

    If you just upload an image to the wp-content/uploads folder it will not turn it into a WP attachment. The media upload tool will not recognize it and you will not be able to use it as an image in the slider since images in the slider are linked through media gallery IDs. You’ll run into a lot of other problems if you don’t get this fixed. Try contacting your hosting company and ask them to have this issue fixed for you.


    Thanks Daniel. Got that upload problem fixed. The only problem is that the front page displays only a portion of the photo (but when you click on it and it shows the post the photo in the post is fine).

    1. What do I have to do to have the photo display completely in the proportions of the home page slider?

    2. What do I set in the Post Format options Gallery? Image?

    Sorry I am such a noob.


    Hi. I did some changed in the editor, and now I would like to go back to the “normal” Minimatica-theme.

    Tried to delete and reinstall theme – but my edits in editor still seems to be active.

    Anybody that knows what to do?

    Thanks guys in advance. Christian Bro, Denmark.



    I have downloaded the pinboard theme. I was wondering if anyone can help me out with some basic questions.

    1) how do I get my home page to be the same as when I click on my logo?
    Right now I created a “home” page and set it to “landing Page” and still I just get a static blog.. not the same page as when I click the logo.

    2) how can I add an image with a link to the “ads” widget?

    3) what else do I need to do to get the pinterest social icon to appear above with the rest? I have been able to get it to show up in the theme options but its still not showing in the webpage.

    4) how do I get a “subscribe by email” widget for my sidebar?

    5) how do I add ads?

    Thanks so much for the any help. I appreciate it.

    I just installed this theme. How do I add the pictures to the slider on the front page? Also, how do I get rid of the “reply” options for pages?


    Juls1482 – The answer to the first part of your question is given earlier in this thread.


    I love this theme but my images seem to be centered in the slider boxes and thus leave a black space on the left side of each slider. Some more so than others. Is there a way to adjust the slider settings or the image size to fill the space provided in the slider? I’m not extremely experienced with editing code but I can copy and paste some if necessary.


    Good morning, if you go to, you’ll better understand my question. I’m trying to change the background colour of title bar in each of the static pages (in the example, inside which is written: “I NOSTRI PARTNERS”). Which part of the theme editor should I change? Someone can help Me? I tried using:

    **This modifies the title bar. You can modify the color of the bar by changing “background”
    .title-container {
    padding:20px 0;
    -moz-box-shadow:0px 0px 20px #999;
    -webkit-box-shadow:0px 0px 20px #999;
    box-shadow:0 0 20px #999;

    but it dindn’t work.

    Thank you very much


    Want to automatically sort your thumbnails by title?

    It’s shockingly easy and I’m really surprised this has gone unanswered so much.

    Head over to functions.php find the function “minimatica_post_gallery()” where you’ll find an array “$args”. Just add these two keys to the end of the existing list:

    ‘orderby’ => ‘post_title’
    ‘order’ => ‘ASC’

    Now your posts will be sorted by title with newest on top. If you want oldest on top, just change ASC to DESC. You will have to rename your titles. Putting numbers in front is easiest.

    Oh, and be sure you add the commas to the end of the argument keys except for the last one.


    How can I create in Minimatica template a bullet list of articles by title, author, and date (main blog page ONLY?

    Question#2, how do you change the lettering font and size in the Minimatica banner?

    Is there a widget or plugin to make these changes?

    IN RE:

    REPEAT REQUEST: Please, can someone answer to my two questions of May 27,2014:

    1. How can I create a bulleted chronological archive of posts by title, subject and date — but only for the main blog page for my posts?

    2. Also, can someone please explain how to change the Lettering, font, size and color in the Minimatica Banner?

    3. Additionally, we’ve noticed that photographs we load onto the MINIMATICA THEME are cropped severely, horizontally and vertically. Are there controls in the THEME that adjust the pixel dimensions of photographs? Or, again, is this something that requires another plug-in or widget?

    If there is an additional widget or plug-in that will accomplish this in conjunction with the MINIMATICA THEME, please specify.

    Thank you so much,
