    When I tried to add new testimonial, It says “You are not allowed to edit this post”. What I’m missing….

    Fantastic looking theme! Why won’t the “Add Testimonials” allow me to edit the post? I get this error: You are not allowed to edit this post. Any particular reason? Thank you for the help on this great theme! Well done!

    Hi, this is a very nice theme that I want to use for our Church website.

    A few questions though, which part of the CSS should I edit in order to create a page template that has full width (no sidebars). I really need it for some page of in our Church website.


    • James 06.08.2011 Reply

      Just go to the css folder under praseodymiumic folder and you can take a pick on which file to edit.

    Amazing theme, I really like it.
    Is it possible to place images instead of posts in the first, second and third columns?

    • Randy 07.28.2011 Reply

      Hi edi,
      Glad you liked the theme. The columns you specified are designed to display pages, so – sorry not possible to display images.

  8. edi 07.19.2011 Reply

    How do you remove the border and padding of images in posts and pages? I couldn’t find it in any of the .css files!

    • James 07.28.2011 Reply

      Under the theme folder, go to css folder. Inside the css folder, open the required.css. At line 33, there is a CSS rule for the images inside the content, and edit accordingly.

    Hi, this is a great theme! But, how can I get rid of the “archives”-menu in the footer and replace it with another widget? There are only 3 footer bars in the widget section.

    • Randy 07.28.2011 Reply

      Hi Andreas,
      You’ll need to edit the setup.php file. You can do that in the Appearance > Editor. Look for the following code:

      'name' => __('Footer 3', PADD_THEME_SLUG),
      'after_title' => '',

      Add this set of code after it:

      'name' => __('Footer 4', PADD_THEME_SLUG),
      'description' => __('Fourth column of the footer widget.', PADD_THEME_SLUG),
      'before_widget' => '',
      'after_widget' => '',
      'before_title' => '',
      'after_title' => '',

      That would now allow you to replace the archives widget.

    I’ve realized that there’s no edit box for the testimonial, there’s only one for the author. I can see all the format buttons but not an input text for the testiominal itself.

    • Randy 08.26.2011 Reply

      Hi Alex,
      Testimonials in this theme is a custom-post type. You can edit it on the Admin Panel.
      I hope that answers your issue.

    Thanks.. Nice themes.. love it

  12. greg myers 01.16.2012 Reply

    I would like the testimonial to be above the 3 featured boxes…how do I do it?

    Great theme, btw!

    • Randy 01.20.2012 Reply

      Hi Greg,

      You can do this by editing the Main Index Template (index.php) of the theme. Just interchange the order of these 2 lines of code:

      • <?php get_sidebar('home'); ?>
      • <?php get_sidebar('testimonial'); ?>

      Then you’ll have to edit the styles, particularly header.css.php and footbar.css. Both of these files are in the ‘css’ folder of the theme.

    Thanks for the help above…it works great.

    Now, how do I set the number of recent posts at the bottom of the home page and have pagination like in the demo? It’s displaying ALL of my posts and no pagination. http://gralmy.com/beaconofhope/

    How do you change the name from Praseodymiumic name on the home page to your own?

    • James 03.07.2013 Reply

      Go to Praseodymiumic Options in your WP admin, select the General tab and look for Site Name Mode. Then take your pick.
