  2. Hi, I have one question on Japibas: it is a very nice theme, and I’m trying to set it up for my blog. Actually I wrote a post to be shown in the slider, and it works well, with the clickable header.
    But if I make the same associating it to a 900×220 image, the image itself is not clickable thus I can’t get to the article. How can I make it clickable? thanks a lot!

  3. Hello,
    My question:
    How to set categories defined in WordPress (last version) in the menu bar of Japibas theme?
    Only pages appear in the menu bar…
    On Setting, I did not exlude any pages from Categories but categories do not appear in the menu.
    Thank you

    1. Hello,

      As said in the post, the theme hasn’t been updated since 2009. So it’s currently not using the WordPress 3.0 menu editor.

      I’m working on an update for the theme right now but I don’t know when it’s done. Try to google some tutorials on the new menu and edit the header.php and functions.php yourself.

    1. 1. I don’t know. I haven’t tested the theme with bbPress. You could try to follow this guide

      2. Is your browser width lower than 1050px? The scrollbar shows then the width is lower than 1050px. It properly should be lower

      You can create a child theme and add this in the child theme style.css:

      @media all and (max-width: 1050px) { html, body { overflow-x: hidden; } }

      It will be changed in the dev version of Japibas soon.

      1. I’m using mozilla firefox version 11. is its width less than 1050px? And i can’t create a child theme. Can i edit any code in the parent theme itself. if so which one please specify. Thank you.

      2. Problem solved buddy. I’ve edited that code in the parent theme style.css itself.
        BTW its a very good theme. Thanks for such a nice and fast response. Awaiting for more free good themes.

  4. Hey in the navigation, the words OLDER POSTS and NEWER POSTS must be interchanged.. How do I do that? My latest post is not being showed in the home page?

      1. Oh regarding the post.. in the theme settings I’ve listed not to display that category posts in the top. Post Problem solved.
        The pagination problem also has solved! Thanks for instant reply!

  5. Hi,
    Thanks a lot. How can I change the layout setting for one particular page ? All my website is on the Default Layout, and I don’t see any Page Template selector.
    Thanks !

    1. That is currently not possible directly from the theme. You can do it with a plugin or a child theme.

      I’ve created a Gist with a child theme that uses the Theme Layouts extension by Justin Tadlock. There’s a download link at the top.

      I haven’t tested it so there might be some errors in it but it should create a solid starting point.

      Hope it helps you :)

    1. Hello Moji

      You’re right. That’s very weird. It’s shows when you go into a post and a page. I’m using the native wp_title() function.

      Your best option of one of these two:
      1. Use a SEO plugin like WordPress SEO by Yoast (recommended as it’s pretty awesome)

      2. Create a child theme and put this code in the functions.php:

      function my_japibas_child_wp_title( $title, $sep ) {
      	global $paged, $page;
      
      	if ( is_feed() )
      		return $title;
      
      	// Add the site name.
      	$title .= get_bloginfo( 'name' );
      
      	// Add the site description for the home/front page.
      	$site_description = get_bloginfo( 'description', 'display' );
      	if ( $site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) )
      		$title = "$title $sep $site_description";
      
      	// Add a page number if necessary.
      	if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 )
      		$title = "$title $sep " . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'japibas' ), max( $paged, $page ) );
      
      	return $title;
      }
      
      add_filter( 'wp_title', 'my_japibas_child_wp_title', 10, 2 );
      

      Thanks for the comment. I’ll make sure to fix it in a future version.

  7. Bonjour,

    J’adore ce theme mais je n’ai pas la pagination “page suivante 1 2 3″
    comme dans la demo.

    1. Hello,

      If you mean the pagination in posts you can type this:

      <!--nextpage-->

      into the Text editor where you would like your page breaks to appear.

  8. Bonjour Jasper tout d’abord merci pour le thème très bien et parfaitement ce que je recherche pour mon blog ! J’aurai quelques petite question s’il vous plait. Tout d’abord je cherche comment avoir le menu déroulant comme sur la démo, car lorsque je crée des pages elle s’affiche comme sa : http://hpics.li/ce52210 et moi je voudrais quelle s’affiche comme vous avec le menu ..

    De plus j’aimerai savoir s’il est désactiver un champ obligatoire, je veux dire retiré l’obligation de mettre un email ? Voila merci :)

    Hello Jasper first of all thank you for the theme very well and perfectly what I look for for my blog! I shall have some small question please. First of all I how try to have the drop-down menu as on the demo, because when I create pages she(it) displays as his(her,its): http://hpics.li/ce52210 and I would want what displays as you with the menu..

    Furthermore I shall like knowing if he(it) is to deactivate a compulsory field, I mean removed the obligation(bond) to put an email? Here is thank you:)

    1. Hello Bil,

      You should set up your menu in Appearance > Menus and add it to the ‘primary’ theme location.

      About the optional email. In Options > Discussion there’s a checkbox with the label “Comment author must fill out name and e-mail”. Try to uncheck that

      Hope that helps you. If not, feel free to write again

    1. Hello,

      I’ve not tested it with BBPress so could you please tell me what is not working? If it’s the styling that needs to be adjusted you could create a child theme: https://github.com/jayj/Japibas/wiki/Child-themes

      I’m hoping the next version of the theme support BBPress however that might take long time as this theme is not my top priority right now.

      But if you tell what’s wrong I’ll take a look at it.

    1. Hello Sofiane,

      Thank you.

      You can edit js/script.js. On line 7-8 and 16-22 there’s some commented code, you can remove those comments. In line 10 you should set auto to true.

      Hope you understand what I’m saying. If not, feel free to write again.

      1. Hi Jesper, yeah i perfectly understand ;)

        Thank you for your quick reply !

        I’ve changed your slider for a new one that i prefer : “Easing Slider”, i hope it don’t bother you.

        Thanks a lot for theme from Paris !

  9. Very usefull the SudoSlider link !

    Just one think I don’t understand. All my posts are displayed in full text in the home page or archive page.
    How to limit the text length and display the “Continue reading” link ?
    I found nothing in the admin.

    Big Up from Paris !

  10. Hello Jasper,

    My current theme is “BlogoLife”.
    I downloaded “Japibas” but the installation fails.

    The error message is as follows;
    The archive could not be installed. It lacks the style.css to this theme.

    Maybe you can help me? Thank you very much.

  11. Hello Jesper,

    I’m using your theme since two years now and i’m really thankful of all it deserve.

    Have you plan to do a new update of your theme ? It will be very great !

    Regards

    1. Hello Sofiane,

      Thank you.

      I’ve planning to update the theme but I’m very busy with other projects at the moment. There might be an update before the end of the year but I can’t promise anything.

      - Jesper
