Lots of people have asked how to create a three column Twenty Eleven, so I decided to take NomNom theme and strip it down for those who just need the 3 column layouts.
Simply install, and check Appearance > Theme Options to see 3 new 3 column layouts.
Gallery thumbnails look best at around 125×125 px because of the narrow content with new layouts and will allow 3 gallery thumbs horizontal.
Here’s a code snippet you might find useful if you ever want to add a message to your comment form to display posting rules or something similar.
We simply create a function that adds a custom message and hooks into the comment form and add it to our functions.php. There are several hooks available for logged in, loggged out and comments closed.
Adding a secondary menu to Twenty Eleven theme is really easy. This feature is available in my NomNom Child Theme and I’ll show you how I did it. We’ll be doing this by making a child theme and creating 3 files.
I have a handful of plugins I use on my sites, and I’d like to talk about one in particular I use very often, specially when I am working with or editing a new theme. AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild
Whenever you switch themes, or create your own theme and add or change the size of the post thumbnails (or any other image) it might not display as it should. This is because WordPress didn’t know about your new thumbnail size when it created the thumbnails for your previous posts.
There’s more to this popular theme than just an awesome name and the fact it’s a child theme of Twenty Eleven.
Numerous features and options have been added to save time and make things easy to get your site looking the way you want with just the click of a button.
I’m always thinking up more features to add, so if you have any suggestions feel free to post them on the forums.
Adding post thumbnails and excerpts to Twenty Eleven theme is not much different than how they would be added to Twenty Ten.
The first step is to create a functions.php file for your child theme if you don’t already have one and add this to it. This adds our own custom size thumbnail of 140px X 140px.
I strongly recommend installing and running Ajax Rebuild Thumbnails plugin after completing this tutorial. It will create a new image size for each featured image. You can uninstall it after it’s finished.
Adding Wp-PageNavi plugin to Twenty Eleven is a bit different than adding it to Twenty ten. The code must be placed into functions.php instead of the loop.
This code will only work with a child theme, you’ll have to modify it to add it straight to Twenty Eleven, but why would you want to do that anyways?
This is a basic tutorial on how to identify the css used for areas within your theme so you can edit anything you want.This might take a bit of practice until you know what to look for, but it will solve some of those “how do I do this, how do i change that” questions you might have.
