    First off I want to say, this is a FANTASTIC theme. I will be using your themes for my clients that request WordPress from here on out. I love working with it. Now here is my problem:

    I am looking for the blog page itself to look like this:

    And blog entries to look like this: (Purchase code hidden if logged out) /

    I read thru the documentation and did about a week of trial and error and I’m drawing blanks. I think I might be setting up the templates wrong or something but the documentation does not go into depth on how to achieve the desired effects. As you can see from my link below I customized the rest of the site quite nicely but I just cant seem to get my head around what I am doing wrong for blog. It the last element I need to wrap up for my client.

    Here is the link to the site:

    If you need me to provide more information or create a guest login so that you can poke around, please email me and I will set that up for you. Thanks in advance.


    One more thing, whether I choose recent post, or latest news, none of the post show up in the sidebar widget. This tells me I’m definitely doing something wrong. Hopefully the fix to the blogs will fix this as well if not I have two things to figure out.


    Hi stat1124,

    The blog layout is determined by the options set in the Layout & Settings tab of the theme options. Specifically, Default Blog Layout. The one selected in the demo theme is “Small Preview image, right sidebar”. Then just leave the blog post “Post Layout” set to “Use default”.

    It looks like you’ve done some customization to the theme and blog template so you may need to apply some basic css fixes in order to get the content looking like it would by default again.




    I made sure not to edit any of the blog css styles because I wanted to leave that as it. I will try to set default blog layout to “small preview image, right sidebar” and move the blog post back to “use default” and see what that does. Thanks for the quick response. I will let you know how it goes.


    Ahh I think I may see my problem now. Ok everything is now fixed except the titles do not show up for the blog posts. Any idea which css controls that?



    Please drop this on your custom.css

    #top .post-title, .post-title a, .dynamic-column-title, .dynamic-column-title a {
    visibility: visible!important;

    There may be an instance where you put a display: none; to a certain element. Maybe worth the try.




    Ismael, thanks for the suggestion, but the didn’t have any effect. That is the problem I am having. I can’t see the title so I can’t target the title style and then override it.


    For the record I have tried to add {visible !important} to the following elements:

    #top .post-title, .post-title a, .dynamic-column-title, .dynamic-column-title a,, #top .template-blog .post-title

    No luck with any of them.



    Reviewing your blog page, it doesn’t appear the code necessary to display the title is there. If you will check your loop-index.php file located in the includes folder for this line:

    <h1 class='post-title'>
    <a href="<?php echo get_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php _e('Permanent Link:','avia_framework')?> <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>

    Should be around line 27. If you do not see it you’ll need to add it directly below this snippet of code:

    <div class='post-entry'>
    if(strpos($avia_config['layout'], 'big_image') !== false) $slideHtml = $slider->display_small('page');
    if(strpos($avia_config['layout'], 'dual-sidebar') !== false) $slideHtml = $slider->display_small('blog');

    if(isset($slideHtml) && $slideHtml)
    echo $slideHtml;
    $avia_config['slider_first_post_active'] = true;




    Yes, my loop-index.php has that code exactly how you have it. So that isnt the reason either. This is driving me crazy! LOL Thanks everyone so far for helping me out.



    Okay, I didn’t see the line at first and now I do. I also think I found the reason. In your custom.css on line 3 you have the snippet below which is causing the title to be hidden. {
    display: none !important;

    If you remove that code you’re titles will appear again.

    Note: If you’re were using the above to hide titles on another page then you’ll need to make the code more specific such as .home would hide any blog titles on the homepage. We can help you out if you need any assistance.




    AHHHHHHH MYA YOU ARE A QUEEN AND GODDESS! Dang it…I forgot that i hide the titles on the pages but completely had a brainfart not realizing that I did a global h1 hide instead of specifically targeting only the page

    I should be able to get away with figuring out what the parent element is in the page h1 title and making the rule more specific right?


    Ok I got it! Thanks. That rule is: .entry-content

    You all have been wonderful and my client adores his new website. Thanks again for all who took the time!



    Glad that Mya could help you :)
