    Hi,

    I have little problem. I think that correct answer is these Child themes.

    I am planning editing this StartupWP theme to like this

    http://i.imgur.com/JgN6eKQ.png

    There is that sidebar 2 and footer 2 or down-widget area what I need. I need those because I want to but there logo’s what include links to different sites. Why widget? Because then I can add down example carusel widget what rotates pictures.

    First I was thinking use that right right template but problem was that didn’t worked with articles, so when I make new article I only got one sidebar not twos, or it’s possible to edit article layout to get two sidebars?

    Which of the two would be sensible to go? That article layout modification or try to make those new widget areas?

    I am little n00b with editing.

    Actually, the simplest thing to do here, would be to upgrade to Pro because the custom templates are possible for posts in Pro, so you’d be able to have two sidebars right on articles.

    However, important note, we’ve just updated to version 2.0. While all your theme options should port over nicely, the theme file code itself has been greatly improved, so could pose a problem if you’ve made any advanced customizations.

    The design has also been mildly reworked as well, have a look:

    If you want to test it out, you have 60 days to request a full refund.

    Thanks

    Aah, now I noticed that text:
    Change the sidebar layout of posts too.

    So maybe I need only buy this theme. Thanks for information. I have not yet made any major changes, fortunately.

    Hi,

    Pro theme works fine but I have still little thinks to ask.

    First that two sidebar think. I have now assign in front page new article and for that article activated that two right template. But I am not seeing that on my front page, only when I open that article, after that I see two right sidebars. So what I make wrong?

    Second thing that Nivo Slider not showing those little arrows, only next and back text?

    1. Currently, the templates only work on individual pages and posts, not site wide.

    2. First, make sure that you’ve setup the new pro slider (https://startupwp.com/topic/setting-up-the-slider/). Second, you can adjust the slider settings and change the slider theme and so forth to give the slider arrows, a different look etc.

    Absolutely, through child theming pretty much anything is possible.

    Let us know if you need any help.

    I tested that little bit. I got two sidebars on front page but didn’t got widgets there. I got widgets only first sidebar but not the second one. Is those widget places logged via css?

    Hi,

    I copied that post template right right to index.php and I used child theme.

    But now when I edit content style:

    #content {
    width: 64%;
    padding: 0 2%;
    float: left;
    }

    to this

    #content {
    width: 64%;
    padding: 0 0%;
    float: left;
    }

    That content is attaches to left side, so how I can detach that?

    Hi,

    Yes I now got are working fine. Litlle bit working and studing but now all works.

    But how I can force the font to Google Open Sans? Is the correct way to Open Sans or Open+Sans?

    Since you’re already child theming, the most direct way (that will take precedence over all other styles) would be to add the following to your child theme’s stylesheet:

    @import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans);
    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, h1 a, h2 a, h3 a, h4 a, h5 a, h6 a{font-family:'Open Sans',sans-serif}

    On Google Fonts you can choose different fonts and font weights/styles as well:

    https://www.google.com/fonts#UsePlace:use/Collection:Open+Sans

    Hi,

    Thanks, those worked fine. Seems that StartupPro options can’t overwrite all fonts.

    That’s correct, the options are sufficient for most users, but those requiring more advanced customization definitely want to look into child theming as you’ve done.
