    [QUOTE=TomF;460770]Really glad to see the new theme. Well done Chris. I have uploaded and activated successfully using the basic green background. I tried to upload with backgrounds 2 and 4 but both failed with the following error message "[COLOR=#444444][FONT=-apple-system]The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini." I am using version 12.0.1 Safari on an iMac. Can anyone help? If this is a [/FONT][/COLOR][FONT=-apple-system][COLOR=#444444]general problem it's a terrible limitation[/COLOR][/FONT][/QUOTE]

    You need to increase the file upload size for wordpress media - a quick google will give you some handy instructions of how to do this.

    Hey,

    I'm in the process of updating my district's website using the "New Brand 4 Districts" theme. I have followed the instructions in the manual and the set up has worked fine. When I went to launch the site I noticed that the line for footer and the social media links are appearing halfway through the page and not at the bottom of the page. When I log in as admin the footer works fine and the site works as expected. The issue only occurs when nobody is logged in i.e. public view and I don't know what is causing this issue. Until it has beem resolved, I am unable to launch the site.

    Has anyone else encountered this problem with the new theme?

    I've followed the user guide but when i try and view my news page with word press posts on it just re directs me to the home page. Has anyone else had this issue or knows any ways around it?

    Cheers

    You can't have news on what is the home page of the theme. Create a page called "News" and in the "Customize" bit select that page as the one for the latest posts to display on.

    File upload size

    Hi Keith
    Thanks for your advice. Unfortunately I was unable to find anything by Googling and had to get a friend to increase file upload size. It was beyond my technical ability.
    Having got the background uploaded, I need to edit the homepage and cannot see how to do this. Editing the other pages seems straight forward.
    Can you please give me a clue
    Tom

    Go to /wp-admin/theme-editor.php and then find the index.php file in the list of Theme Files - you'll then be able to edit it.

    Thanks, Keith, but, oh dear, this rather mitigates against people without coding skills. I will accomplish probably with help from more technical friends.

    Regarding the increasing the file size limit, this is not a WordPress thing but a setting on your hosting server. You'd be best contacting whoever provides your hosting who'll be able to advise you further as every set up/company is slightly different.
