Hi! I have two questions.
1) How to add a favicon?
2) When I share my blog (toplistsmania.com) on facebook thumbnail won’t show. it makes sense actually because I have not set any default thumbnail for it. Can you tell me how to set it..

Thank you so much for posting this. This was very helpful to me. I am using the Star Blog theme now. Awesome!

Comment by Ali says:

for some reason the ‘previous’ button which was on the bottom of the page has disappeared…any advise on how to get it back. Thanks.

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

Best thing to do would be to download the file again (or unzip the original zip if you still have it) and compare the appropriate template which is on your site against the original.

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

If you open up index.php and change the_excerpt(); to the_content(); it should change it to full articles.

How to let the page show full post instead of excerpt?

Comment by heidy says:

Does anybody know the name of the plug-in they are using for the sideshow in the homepage?

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

It’s probably hard coded into the theme. There are lots of slide show plugins available on the official WordPress directory though.

Hello guys,

Very nice theme. I am not much into allthose coding stuff, so your help will be appreciated :D
I’d like to know i could put a header image? Thank you!

Comment by Steven says:

I suggest you upload your own logo to the library and change the link in header.php. Easy as that.

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

As mentioned above, it appears this template uses encryption, therefore I would not encourage anyone to use it (I have left this post here as a reminder to those who have downloaded the theme).

Comment by Ali says:

Hi,

I am not able to locate logo.png in the image template folder. Can you give me the correct patch.

Thanks.

Comment by Steven says:

Damn. My code is not visible in my reply. Check a screenshot here: http://twitpic.com/4hk0cz

Comment by Steven says:

Prepare. This is the code that’s in my footer.php. Live, it looks good, but this is abracadabra for me:

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

Sorry Steven. I should have said, you will need to convert the html formatting before posting it.

I just downloaded the template. That looks like encryption code so that no one can remove their footer. They should not be doing this, particularly when releasing the theme under GPL.

I wouldn’t recommend using this theme if that it is encrypted. What happens when you use the theme without the footer i.e. if you remove the reference to the footer template or remove all content from the footer template. Does it still work?

If you really must use this theme, I’d be happy to try and fix this issue if you are having problems. I do not believe developers should encrypt their work, particularly when released under GPL. Therefore I don’t think it’s unfair to remove the encryption.

Comment by Steven says:

Trying to change the text ‘Powered by WordPress & Design by Premium WordPress Themes’ in the footer but the footer.php gives only an enormous and strange code. Nothing to change about. Do I look in the wrong php-file? Thanks.

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

Can you post that part of the code here or in the forums. I’ll have a look at it and see if I can see what’s wrong.

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

The logo.png file is located in the templates image folder. If you keep the same dimensions then you can change the logo by simply overwriting the file on your server.

You can see the logo linked in the header.php template so if you need to change things around you need to do it there.
