    @Justin

    Thank you! Switching

    to

    Worked like a charm.

    Thanks again,
    Peter

  • http://skwiotsmith.com/ skwiot

    Just set up the theme on wordpress, and am wondering just one thing: on the index page posts, can links appear/function in the post? I’m using the theme here: http://audio.skwiotsmith.com/ and some of my posts do not need to be ‘thrown’ to the individual post page.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks
    Peter

    @Jason: Hi Jason, just install the excerpt-reloaded plugin and that will solve your problem. Here’s the link: http://guff.szub.net/2005/02/26/the_excerpt-reloaded/

  • http://journal.jslucas.com Jason

    Hi Justin, thank you for the theme. I’ve installed it, but I’m getting a familiar issue, the ” Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_excerpt_reloaded() ” issue – I’ve gone through all the comments and your responses, but I’m afraid I just don’t understand what I’m doing wrong. You say there are 2 files and that I’ve uploaded the wrong file? I can only see one file available to upload. Have I missed something?

    I like this design theme. I add this site information for Japanese wordpress fun.

    Just wanted to say thanks for the brilliant theme. Took a while to tweak/get used to, but it was worth it.

    The gallery posts also come up in the site search. As much a i adore this theme, it is just to incomplete and buggy Justin. I recommend that you either state this or re-develop it.

    Just a thought- why not implement the same system seen on siimple.com? That works a treat.

    Justin. Any updates on a navigation fix for the gallery and portfolio?

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @paul: What layout issue, in specific, are you wishing to resolve?

  • http://www.robotoranges.com paul

    Justin,

    After investing hours of tie in this theme for my blog of 4 yrs- i now find that the gallery navigation does not work either. I was expecting a few oddity during porting my work over but these bugs and layout issues are a real problem.

    Can anyone assist with these issues please? I’ll try and email you Justin as you are not responding to my questions here.

    Sorry to post up various bugs- but the archive page layout is off too. Second column overlaps the first. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Oh…and thank you very much for such a sweet set of themes. I’m loving them!

    The search results page is all over teh place. Any idea how to view results as if it was an archived page view?

    Thanks.

    @david: Hi David, it would probably be easiest if you sent me a temporary password to access the admin area of your site so I have a look at what’s going on specifically. If you would like just use this form http://www.siiimple.com/submit – and I’ll have a look. Thanks!

  • david

    Hi justin, I’m new to wordpress. I’m a dreamweaver person. Your themes are the only minimalist designs I like. I want to use the Milan theme… I can’t get any of the images to show on the home page or within a post using your custom field & value. I’m selecting these images from the media gallery. I have the plugins installed. Please help, I’d be glad to compensate you for your time.

  • fig

    Yeesh! Sorry to blunder up the board… resolved the issue altogether.

    Thanks for the lovely theme.

  • fig

    Disregard my previous comment; I’ve read through previous comments and saw that someone else had the same issue. My problem is that WordPress will *not* let me install the plugin because it says it triggers a fatal error.

  • fig

    When I try to install the wp-pagenavi plugin, I get this message in the admin panel:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /nfs/c05/h02/mnt/84832/domains/mywebsite.com/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-pagenavi/scb/load.php on line 12

    and this message at the bottom of the actual page:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_pagenavi() in /nfs/c05/h02/mnt/84832/domains/mywebsite.com/html/wp-content/themes/Milan1.2/bottom.php on line 12

    Any thoughts? I have the latest version of WP installed.

  • http://www.krachtgroen.nl Gudule

    Wow, thanks for responding so quickly,
    I would like to have more menu’s on the side and use the bottom for the archive and links just like you did. Is that possible without the sidebar?
    Could I use the same php code for the top-menu but with an id for a different menu?
    This code:
    new description_walker()) ); ?></div

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @Gudule: Hi, the sidebar for Milan is at the bottom. Is that what you’re looking for?

  • http://www.krachtgroen.nl Gudule

    I like your theme a lot but I would like the sidebar-options of Starkers and Twentyten back. Could you please help me?

  • http://theateridee.co.de/ Hamburger

    So stupid :D I wrote “image” instead of “Image” :D

    It’s okay.

    P.S.: I LOVE your theme!

  • http://theateridee.co.de/ Hamburger

    Hi!

    I’m tryin to add featured images, so that I can see them on the main page, but it simply doesn’t wanna work :( I also put in values for “image”, “image2″ and “image3″, but nothing changes.

    Does it have to do anything with the “Gallery” or “Portfolio” site?

    Plz, help, I’d be grateful!

    @Yoram: Hi Yoram, thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ve now attached a Creative Commons license on siiimple’s themes.

    I really like the «Milan» theme … but before I give it a try and donate I really need to know what license is attached to it — GPL, CC, etc.?

  • http://www.doodles.stuartclift.com stuart

    @Justin: aah! cheers mate..i take it the gallery image doesn’t lead to a post screen?

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @stuart: You have to add new posts for the gallery in the “Gallery” custom post section of the admin area. Once within the gallery new post section, use the Featured Image area to an a new image.

  • http://www.doodles.stuartclift.com stuart

    beautiful site but please can you help – have read through readme about setting up gallery page but at a total loss as to how to add images to gallery?? Have tried custom field/featured image/insert into post but to no avail….

    hi justin

    I’m one of your theme user from China~

    appreciate a lot for the great design theme, It has been installed and using pretty well~. though it’s not easy to get everything set.

    by the way, have you seen the effect of this theme on Internet Explorer, I have to say, i fully hate IE, but is there any way to make it at least nomal looking?

    and I also spent a long time to add the wordpress widget fountion, cause only reply area on the post page are not enough.

    hope you and your design will keep getting progress~

  • http://blog.brocke.eu/ Filip

    ok, menu is fixed, so easy, just blind, sorry…
    - still wondering why there are no images

  • http://blog.brocke.eu/ Filip

    hi justin,
    to make it short, your theme is absolutely wonderful and i really would like to use it.

    but i have no idea how to fix the “problems” with the menu:

    - right now there is a description beside two of the menu-items which i already have deleted or changed (the description not the menu-item)
    - then i don’t know how to ad menus in the admin-section, it says that in this theme “0” (zero) self created menu can be added (??)

    i’m running your theme on WP 3.0.1

    and last but not least i can see no images right now beside the articles…

    thanks in advance, F

    @Oleg: Make sure the pagenavi plugin is installed.

    @higui: Hi, it is necessary to use WordPress 3.0 for the menu. If you upgrade to 3.0 it should be easy.

  • http://www.higui.it higui

    for some reason my twitter isn’t working. I did change siiimple in the footer into my account name. As you can see on my page it only says twitter and doesn’t show my tweets.

  • http://www.li-an.fr/wpplugins/ Li-An

    OK, I solved the sidebar “problem”. But your functions.php does not like new function at the beginning. It took me some time to add them… at the end.

  • http://www.giacomobutte.com giacomo

    thanks
    i solved the problem.
    A suggestion, make it clearer that one needs wp 3.0 for some plugin.

    Is there a way to move the comment box in a post?
    It seems to be getting in the way when i post photos.

    @Li-An: Yea, the sidebar isn’t wigetized. Though it can be with some tweaking.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @riccardo: You would have to add an image tag, like this: in the header.php file. If you have the logo, I can put it in for you.

    I’d like to insert a little logo near the title in the top of the page! Someone Knows how does it work?

    Widgetized sidebar ? If I go in the widget menu of admin, WP says there is no widgetized sidebar but it seems you create it one in the sidebar.php. What is this mystery ?

  • http://www.li-an.fr/wpplugins/ Li-An

    Sorry. It works with the plugin file in the theme (don’t forget to create a directory to put into the the-excerpt-reloaded.php file !).

  • http://www.li-an.fr/wpplugins/ Li-An

    Even with the link you gave, I got the excerpt reloaded error :-(

  • chloe

    Thanks, Justin! It worked.
    Looks like I downloaded the wrong excerpt-reloaded.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @chloe: Could be the wrong plugin. Is it this excerpt-reloaded? http://guff.szub.net/2005/02/26/the_excerpt-reloaded/

  • chloe

    My wordpress is updated to 3.0 and I have installed the plugins, but I still get this message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_excerpt_reloaded() in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/themes/Milan1.2/index.php on line 23

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

  • Will Knot B. Revealed Snr.

    It looks GORGEOUS :-D.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @giacomo: You have to update to WordPress 3.0 to fix that issue.

    Fatal error: Class ‘Walker_Nav_Menu’ not found in /web/htdocs/www.giacomobutte.com/home/blog/wp-content/themes/Milan1.2/functions.php on line 353

    i have installed the 2 plugins. is there some parameters that i have to set? or some plugin that is not compatible?

    thanks

  • janet

    @Nick, how did you fix the fatal error issue? I downloaded the two plugins Taratan suggested (thank you, by the way) but still got that message. Without the plugins, it was just a blank screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @matstone: It could be a permissions issue. Might need to check with your server. It has something to do with WordPress 3.0, I believe.

  • matstone

    I just solved installing the plugins,

    Still I can’t see IMAGES (even with custom fields)
    Any advice

  • matstone

    Hi everybody,
    Does anybody know why I can see only one post in home page and without text or image, only the title (I tried also the custom field option)

    Please help me, I love this theme :)
    Thanks in advance

  • taratan

    @giacomo: you have to download the plugins “the excerpt reloaded” and “wp-pagenavi”.

    does anyone else have the same problem of not being able to load images? I’ve followed intstructions for the Custom Field and Value, but it’s still not showing up..

  • http://www.giacomobutte.com giacomo

    @nick i have same problem. how did you solve it?

  • taratan

    @nick: hi, i’ve got the same problem too. how did you solve the fatal error problem?

  • nick

    Ok, i have figured out the fatal error problem, however the main navigation still isn’t showing up.

    My host is running PHP 5.2.111 so that shouldn’t be the problem

  • nick

    I get this error when I try to apply the theme:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_excerpt_reloaded() in /home/dougshi/public_html/dorothykay.com/wp-content/themes/Milan1.2/index.php on line 23

    Any suggestions?

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    Please forget about my question above. I found a solution without lists …

  • http://stenstrop.dk Uffe

    Dear Justin

    I have just installed Milan Theme successfully. It looks fantastic – but the typography in posts using ul/ol lists is smashed, and there are no points or numbers. Could you help me fix the problem?

    Example: http://stenstrop.dk/?p=2908

    Thanks in advance!

  • u.

    i figured it out. an ugrade of php software was needed.

    another question.
    can you please tell how to set up the top menu? the one with the about/portfolio/gallery links like is shown in the demo?
    i created pages but the links are missing on the home page.

    thank you for helping.

  • el

    @Justin:

    Hi Thanks fir the reply, I sent you a message using your contact form.

  • u.

    dear justin.
    sorry, i forgot to say: great looking theme!!!!!
    so i really hope to get the problem solved.

    i checked your readme file again, and i am really assured i have done it the right way.

    your image about the custom fields: you have another path to your pictures.
    your pics are stored in “…wp-content/themes/milan…”
    my pics “…wp-content/uploads/2010/08/24.jpg”

    mine in uploads, yours in the themes folder.
    but: does that really make a difference where the pics are stored, as long i show the path?
    anyway, i cant get the path to the themes folder when i upload the pics in the libary…

    do i make mistakes concerning uploading the pics in general?!?!?!

  • u.

    got the same problem as daniele:
    on the home page there appears the headline again, at the position of the picture in violet color… @daniele: did you solve it?

    i really dont know what goes wrong.
    im really desperate about it…:(

    thankx.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @Richard: Are you using the Custom Field name: “Image” ? In the readme.html file there are some images showing how to use the portfolio/gallery and thumbnail images. If that doesn’t help, I can take a look at it, if you send me your login details. Thanks

    justin,

    Any suggestions on the “problems with the images showing up as thumbs on the front page. “???

    thanks

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @el: For that you have to replace the < ?php the_excerpt; ?> with < ?php the_content; ?> or add the latter. I can try to do it for you if you send me your login details.

    @riccardo: Just install the excerpt-reloaded plugin and that will resolve the issue.

  • http://www.siiimple.com/milan-a-wordpress-theme Justin

    @Alan: You can add an image but you can do it through the admin area. You would have to do it in the code in the header.php section.

  • Alan

    Ok new question,

    Can i add an image to the “message” section instead of typing text?
    When i add code it changes the code once i save it, then it wont work.

    How can i do this?
    Thanks!

  • Alan

    To@tommy:

    The image has to be uploaded to your site and not from another site.
    Then you have to use it as a “featured” image when you make a post.
    Then you have to make a “custom feild” name it “Image” and for the value you use the URL to your image.
    Be careful, dont write “image” you have to write “Image”

    I hope that helps.

    @Justin:
    Tried to send but it just hangs. Twittered you as well. Any other ideas?

    thanks for your help ;)

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @Silverbadger: Perhaps I can take a look at what’s causing this trouble. If you don’t mind sending me access to your admin area, I can have a look. You can send it through the submit site form: http://www.siiimple.com/submit

  • Silverbadger

    @Kerabatsos:

    Have gone through the options, but nothing is showing (titles or thumbs). Arrggghhh!

  • Kerabatsos

    @Silverbadger: You should be able to take care of that in the Milan options area.

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    @Silverbadger:

    Ok, thanks a lot. Couldn’t change it in the admin area, but changed it in the folder and uploaded it again via ftp. Done. Great!

  • Silverbadger

    mmm…Just realised a few issues.

    1. Thumbnails are not showing.
    2. Titles on footer are not showing.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks.

  • Silverbadger

    @Oliver:

    Ok, this is very easy. Even for no knowledge.

    Step by step:
    Go to your wordpress admin
    Go to editor under ‘Appearance’
    Click on Editor
    On the right side you will see a list of Templates
    Click on Stylesheet (style.css) the last file
    Find a:hover { color: #33a8e5 !Important; }
    change to { color: #30302f !Important; }
    click update
    refresh web page and voila!

    #30302f is a dark grey color, search for hex values on google and pick one you like and just change the code.

    By the way, I think this is one of the best (typographical) themes out there for wordpress!

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    @Silverbadger:

    Yes, for hover over the links AND the permanent colored links. The permanent colored links could be in the same color (black?) as the standard font/text and turn grey, when you hover over them.

    P.S. Sorry, if my English is not hundred per cent ;-)

  • Silverbadger

    @Oliver:

    Are you looking for whenever you hover over the links?

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    Hi Justin,

    sorry for being so persistent, but did you post anything about the Twitter problem yet? Just asking, because I can’t see the earlier responses anymore …

    And, one more thing: can I change the color of the links without any CSS-Knowledge? I’d like to have them all in a kind of middle grey tone. Would be great, if you (or someone else) could help me with this.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Justin,
    I should mention that the except-reloaded plugin has been activated prior to the above error. Might help?

  • Frank

    Hi Justin,
    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

    Here is what’s going on.
    So i noticed there was a wp-pagenavi update so I ran that and after I tried activating it, I recieved this error:

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /nfs/c01/h09/mnt/8429/domains/redproductions.ca/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-pagenavi/scb/load.php on line 12

    I tried poking around but could not find what might be causing the plug in to fail.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @Ash: That has to do with the uploaded theme folder. I included the folder separate from the plugins, so the folder with the correct theme has to be compressed. Now, however, I’ve updated the theme and the new download will be already compressed. So you can now re-download the theme and upload it to your theme directory. You shouldn’t have any problem with it now.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @Frank: Looks like you have to install the except-reloaded plugin. That should take care of it.

    First off, wicked looking theme. thanks for this.

    I am getting an error and I can’t seem to find out how to fix it.
    I get this error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_pagenavi() in /nfs/c01/h09/mnt/8429/domains/redproductions.ca/html/wp-content/themes/Milan/bottom.php on line 12

    Any ideas? Thanks man.

  • Ash

    Okay, but when I install it, I get this message – how do I get the error to stop?

    Unpacking the package.

    Installing the theme.

    Destination folder already exists. /home/blogala1/public_html/wp-content/themes/Milan/

    Theme Install Failed.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    @Ash: the second folder is the theme

  • Ash

    Oh, I’m getting error messages all over the place when I try to install. Any ideas? I guess I’m not clear on all this unpacking, what gets installed where stuff. I need to upload .zip files into my wordpress – which one do I use?

  • Helen

    How do I get a thumbnail image to come up? I can’t find that, or where to change any of the intro info. I looked through the readme file already.

  • Helen

    Justin – I can’t find any contact details to send you my login info, could you leave an email address for me to send it to?

    Thanks so much in advance, you rock!

    @Oliver: the updated version of Milan now has a working twitter feed.

    I also added the option for more images to be had on the single.php page by using the Image4, Image5 custom field option.

    I’ve sorted it.

    It works if you add a description to the page on the menu screen.

    Hi,

    I’ve been messing around with your theme for a couple of days, it’s fantastic, setting up my portfolio.

    I’ve setup a custom menu for the top right. It seems to work fine for a couple of pages, then it ends up having all of the text in the page title. Am I doing something wrong?

    Peter

    Oliver,

    I will have a fix for the twitter in the next few days. Hopefully by tomorrow afternoon.

    Helen,

    I’m not sure why it would be giving that error. Could you send me your login details? Perhaps there’s something I can fix.

  • Helen

    Hi Justin,

    This is literally all it says. It won’t even let me get the theme onto my wordpress now.

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    Destination folder already exists. /home/content/34/6504834/html/wp-content/themes/Milan/

    Theme install failed.

    Anybody, who has a solution for showing the latest Tweet correctly? (Plugin shows “No public Twitter Messages” most of the time).

    Thank you Val,

    But that was little difficult for me to follow.
    My programming skills aren’t to that level yet lol.

    Any other options?

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    ooblik,

    the path to the stylesheet is style -> css -> layout.css

  • http://www.ooblik.com ooblik

    question…I can’t find this : style/css/typography.css
    or in the style.css I found this : @import “style/css/typography.css”;
    is it normal ?

  • http://www.ooblik.com ooblik

    I understand my trouble…and fix it ! my custom key was “image”…and not “Image” ! Stupid mistake from me. I now try to ad a widget place…

  • http://www.ooblik.com ooblik

    first…I LIKE your theme ! pure, simple, minimal…”élégant”, all I appreciate in template, thank’s a lot.
    I just have some trouble with the Custom Fields on the main page…what’s the size for the crop thumbnail ? I use a great plugin for make them automaticly : WP Post Thumbnail, but I need to specify the size and the name of the custom fields to work.

    I like your typos too…

    one more, and last question… : ) can I fix a widget place for the bottom of the template ? I think’s it’s more simple for changing the options of the display.

    thank’s again for your work, it’s a big pleasure for me to find your theme !

    hi alan,
    just stumbled across this comment here:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-call-featured-image

    following JLeuze comment on link “to any URL” from a featured image might help for you…

  • http://alanicruz.com/blog2/ Alan

    Is there a way to make the custom fields pictures clickable to view full sized?
    I think It’d be a cool option if not already possible.

  • val

    dear justin,
    i am just wondering about your way to choose images for the front/portfolio, but i guess there’s a “design” reason for that!?
    you used “featured image” for portfolio, but for posts you used “custom fields”. i find it a bit more unpractical to copy the img url to the field while in for “featured image” you can simply click it. or is it simply because you want to keep the possibility of adding more than 1 image (in case i want to use only 1 image/post would a change to “featured image” be more practical?)?
    thanks,
    val

    Hi Justin,

    ok, thanks for the information. Would be great, if you could find a solution for the Twitter problem, because the plugin really doesn’t work. I’ve been watching this for about two days now and it seems like it has nothing to do with how long ago the tweet was. In 24 Hours the tweet was visible for about 5 minutes, rest of the time it wasn’t.

    I’ve deactivated the plugin again and copied back your original code into the twitter.php (the one with the apostrophes-problem). Not so great either, but at least the tweet is visible all the time.

    So, thanks a lot again for your involvement! Hopefully you find a way to solve this.

    I love the theme, for me as a professional writer it’s perfect.

    Oliver

  • val

    thanks a lot justin,
    in 3.01 it works!
    i hesitated to update… but i’m sure your theme was worth it!

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    Val,

    What version of WordPress are you using? If you’d like you can send me your login info, and I can take a look what the trouble may be. Looks like a problem with an older version of WordPress. http://www.siiimple.com/submit

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    Hi Oliver,

    I think that has something to do with how long ago the tweet was. Not sure why it’s doing that. Here’s the link to the plugin information. In future updates I will replace this with custom twitter api.

    http://rick.jinlabs.com/code/twitter/

    If I found out how to change that, I’ll post it here.

  • val

    hi justin,
    i get the following error message when trying to activate your theme:
    “Class ‘Walker_Nav_Menu’ not found in /mnt/webspace/04/42760/stahlallueren.de/wp-content/themes/Milan/functions.php on line 353″

    that’s what i did before:
    - from your milan1.zip i put the wp-pagenavi, twitter and excerpt-reloaded in my plugin folder and was able to activate them.
    - then i zipped the milan-folder containing the theme and uploaded it to the themes page in wp. it’s now in themes/milan and available, but as soon as i preview it i get the above message.
    do you have any idea about it?
    hope to get your elegant theme running!
    thanks,
    val

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    Me again ;-/ … One more question about the Twitter plugin: sometimes it shows “No public Twitter messages.”

    Any idea why?

    Hi Justin,

    First off thanks for the great theme. Its awesome.

    I have a problem though.
    I installed WP and your theme with the plugin’s with success to my sever.
    But, nothing happens when i make a post or make a portfolio page, gallery etc.

    The page just stays blank with the header and twitter link only visible.
    Am i doing something wrong?
    Please take a look at my page and see what im doing wrong.
    I currently have a post and a portfolio page made, but as you can see, nothing is showing.

    Thanks for any help!

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    Hi Justin,

    now it’s working! First of all I’ve installed the plugin again and copied the code above into the twitter.php – file, but it didn’t work again. Then I deleted the twitter.php file via ftp-client and installed the new one from your updated download. Now it’s running without any problems.

    Thanks again!

    Oliver

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    Hi Oliver

    I have updated the download, and included that plugin. If you want, I can take a look at your installation from the admin area, and see if I can’t see what the trouble is. Just send me an email through the “submit your site” link and I’ll take a look. As of now the plugin can be seen working at http://www.justinmarcusdesign.com/. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Justin

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    Hi Justin,

    ok, I’ve tried that plugin, as suggested by you, but it’s not working either. When I (exactly) follow your instructions, it’s just showing “” on my website. So I’ve copied back the original code … but as you can see right now on my site, it really looks bad, when you tweet something with quotation marks or apostrophes.

    Just wanted to let you know about the plugin. I don’t know, why it’s not working.

    Oliver

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    There seems to be an issue with the links in the twitter feed not being clickable. I’m working on fixing this for future release. Until then, I would recommend using this plugin: http://rick.jinlabs.com/code/twitter/

    go into twitter.php file in the theme, delete the contents, and replace with:

    < ?php
    twitter_messages('siiimple', 1);
    ?>

    Changing siiimple to your username.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    Hi Helen

    Could you post exactly what your error message is? Wp-pageNavi plugin requires php5, which can be changed in your server. That could be your issue. Not sure.

  • Helen

    Now I’m getting this:

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    Destination folder already exists. /home/content/34/6504834/html/wp-content/themes/Milan/

    Theme install failed.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    Be careful to unpack the actual theme, which exists within the downloaded folder named Milan. I suppose I should change that in future. Just unpack the “Milan” folder from the “Milan” download, and that should be fix the error. Also, make sure to use the excerpt-reloaded plugin provided in the plugin folder, since there is another plugin called excerpt-reloaded and that one will not work with the theme.

  • Helen

    Hi Justin,

    Lovely theme! I also get this error and I don’t know how to fix it. Any ideas?

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_excerpt_reloaded() in /home/content/34/6504834/html/wp-content/themes/Milan/Milan/index.php on line 23

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    Hi Oliver,

    I’m actually not sure how to fix that problem. I’ll have to do a little research. It would be in the twitter.php page in the theme files that the fix would be made, but I’m not sure what is causing it. Maybe somebody viewing the comments here can help out if they know a solution.

  • http://www.juliankrispel.com Julian Krispel

    Whoops. I meant dasblattwerk.net, sorry

  • http://www.juliankrispel.com Julian Krispel

    Excellent work!!!

    I might just utilize the theme for our redesign of the austrian artists-collective: blattwerk.net

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    Oh, sorry, actually I meant the apostrophes. As you can see above in your Screenshot.

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    Hi again,

    one more question: the quotation marks “” within a tweet are not shown correctly. Is there a way to fix this?

    I use them a lot ;-)

    O.

  • http://gathigi.com Thig

    Really dope work, Justin.

  • http://www.oliverkukulka.com Oliver

    Aaah, thanks a lot!!! Maybe the only part in the admin area, where I didn’t have looked for ;-)

  • http://www.lordsandcommons.com Nathan

    What’s your email? I couldn’t find a contact page so I just sent it via the “submit your site” page.

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    Under settings in your admin area, go to Reading, and where it says: “Blog pages show at most” change that to however many you prefer to show. That should do it.

  • Oliver

    Great work!

    One question: in your Demo the number of posts (per page) is limited to 4. How can I make this setting??? I’ve been searching for hours now, but still don’t know, where to change this … In my case it’s showing more than four posts and I’d like to edit it like your’s too.

    Thanks in advance,

    Oliver

  • http://www.siiimple.com Justin

    The excerpt-reloaded plugin should be the solution to that error. Let me know if you’re still having an issue after installing. If you are you can send me an email with your account details and I can take a look at your setup.

  • http://www.lordsandcommons.com Nathan

    update: trying installing the excerpt reloaded plugin and still didn’t work. i’m dumbfounded..

  • http://www.lordsandcommons.com Nathan

    I received this message after i installed the theme..
    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_excerpt_reloaded() in /home/lordsan1/public_html/wp-content/themes/Milan/Milan/index.php on line 23″

    trying to fix now..

  • http://www.lordsandcommons.com Nathan

    gorgeous work, i’m going to have to use it. thank you very much..
