I am probably missing something but I cannot figure out why my top widgets are not showing – content top not showing either.
Please what am I missing?
Thank you so much for your help 🙂October 28, 2013 at 6:02 pm #18537
You will want to make sure you are using one of the “Front Page” templates 😉October 28, 2013 at 9:06 pm #18538
Ah…stupid me – I should know better by now.
Thank you so much for your quick reply 🙂

No worries… I miss things, especially just moments ago when I was doing an update to Encounters. Incidentally, I will be uploading an updated version within the next 30 minutes which has some major changes. You may want to read the changelog.txt file that comes in the theme to see what changed. The menu has been re-coded with some minor visual changes….but you can view the updated version on the demo site. Most changes are in the back-end of the code.October 28, 2013 at 11:01 pm #18540
Oh great!!! Thank you so much. I will check that right now 🙂October 28, 2013 at 11:05 pm #18541
Sorry – me again. Is there a way to know which files you updated so I would only override those? I just don’t want to lose my changes. I checked the logs but no file name there.
Thank you so much 🙂October 29, 2013 at 1:40 am #18542
I’m assuming you modified core theme files then and did not use a child theme for changes? This is why WordPress recommends a child theme for this because then whenever there are updates to the parent theme, your changes won’t be lost.
As for Encounters, I changed a lot, especially in the style.css file. What files did you modify?October 29, 2013 at 1:48 am #18544
Of course I modified the styles.css…
Please don’t tell anyone..ha..but I still don’t know how those child theme thingy works and I never wanted to spend the time to learn. Awful huh..I know.
Anywho – I know about exactly which part I change in the styles.css – mainly add borders to image and gallery – change menu position to be below the logo (I use long logos like 700px generally so I push the menu below) – this type of things so I can find those parts easily. Besides the css I also alter the header for the same reason – menu position – don’t like the menu on the right..sorry 🙂 that’s about it. The other parts can be done in the backend with customize.
Thank you 🙂October 29, 2013 at 2:24 am #18545
I changed the header.php file for a new menu code, changed the style.css with new menu styling, changed the functions.php file, and of course the changelog.txt file, theme-customizer.php, and also the scripts in the theme….those in the js folder of the theme.October 29, 2013 at 6:32 am #14293
Thank you so much. I will try doing this child theme thingy 🙂
