    I downloaded the Minimum theme, and I’m having some issues getting it to look more like the demo. I followed the tutorials and imported the Minimum demo xml, but the home page of my site still lacks the large footer buttons for Facebook and such, and there’s no featured image.

    In fact, the only thing importing the demo seems to have done is add the menus and posts. The site itself looks exactly the same as it started.

    The site is located here, if anyone needs to see what I’m talking about: http://www.grimwolfgallery.com/

    Hi Grimwolf,

    I use the minimum theme as well at my personal blog at DannyMadds.com

    Everything you have mentioned is fully explained in the “how to” files in your download area, so go to the top of this page – hover over “My Studiopress”

    click “Downloads”

    You’ll see a list of everything you have purchased – find minimum and to the right of it is a “How To” link – click that and it explains everything you have asked step by step :)

    Hope this helps – I would copy and paste it here for you but not sure how that would be looked upon in these new forums!!!

     

    Warm Wishes

    Ah, that does explain it all. Thanks.

    Actually, the instructions are perfectly clear and I understand exactly what they want me to do, but after following them nothing has happened for some reason.

    I went into Appearance>Widgets, and on the right side I opened Home Featured #1, dragged a Text widget inside it, gave it the title Facebook and inside the content I pasted:

    <aclass="icon-facebook"href="http://www.facebook.com/bgardner/"></a>
    <h4>Facebook</h4>
    Like me.

    I then selected Save and then Close. I couldn’t find any sort of Publish button anywhere, so I just viewed the home page again and no button was there.

    Won’t let me edit my post now, so I’ll have to make a new one.

    So I tried moving it into other sections other than Home Featured #. When I do, I still don’t see the proper image, but I do see the message;

    Facebook

    Like me.

    It isn’t even a link. Just text.

    That page also seems to wrongly imply that the large featured image should have been there from the very beginning, and explains only how to replace the “existing” image with another of your choice.

    Are you kidding me? Post editing blocked again, already? I don’t want to spam the site, but this is forcing me.
    ANYWAY
    Based upon the issue I’m having with both the icons and the featured image, the problem seems to be that my site refuses to display any images for some reason. I don’t know why.
    Does anyone know what could be causing this?

    By God, I am so sorry. You have to admit though that this is not all my fault. This tiny edit window is forcing my hand.
    This is the last post for today, at least.
    I’ve narrowed it down to some sort of database issue. I know this because I tried uploading my own image and it worked fine. This means the issue is that the site can’t find the base images that were supposed to be included with the theme, like the Featured Image and icons.
    Now I just need to figure out how to get those working/restored/whatever.
