  2. Hi Om,
    Is it possible to have width of image more than width of column. For example, I have put width of single page 1000px as per Code #17 above and I want to have image width of 1200px on those pages.

      1. I use 24 posts per page on my category and tag pages. If the category has more posts, they will show up on /Page/2/, /Page/3, etc.
        To improve my search rankings for the category pages I have started to write better descriptions, up to 300 words for each. However, the Dyad 2 theme by default shows the same description on all of them – making for duplicate content and poor usability.

        After 6 blog posts the balance is disturbed from one post. It does not matter which one because I already tried to take that post and tag it as the first post on the website but then just another blog post disturbs the balance. I checked if that is maybe the „next page“ that it is like starting over again but in my settings it says to show 20 posts per page and I just have 14.
        Thanks for trying (:

  5. Hello Om. Great work you’re doing. Thank you. I’ve already picked up a few things from this post.

    1. How can I get the FEATURED tag on the rotating banner to display to actual tag name? I can edit files if you can tell me where to look.

    2. Can I get YOU to modify the comments template so that it’s easier and more compact to read (especially when there are a lot of comments) like here: http://appreciation.space/gratitude-list/

    Thanks for all you do.

    1. HI Elizabeth
      so, you want to change the word “Featured” to a tag name…
      go to your theme folder..and then “template-parts” and check “content-featured-post.php” file
      and you will see the word “Featured” there
      please let me know if it helps

  6. Hi, I have just completed my golf club site and it is looking pretty good. I have a number of images in the carousel but I would like to remove the word “FEATURED” that comes up prominently in each one. Is there any way to do that?
    I am using wordpress premium and the site is http://www.bridgendgolfclub.com . The site has just gone live so there might be a delay in your service provider updating DNS settings

  7. Hi Om, I am afraid that I have another question. I am trying to install a plugin to provide a calendar to manage bookings at the golf club. I have selected Amelia from TMS and it looks like a very good fit for our needs. I have successfully downloaded, installed and activated the pro version of the Amelia plugin. That is as far as I can get before running into problems. From there on everything that I try to do runs into an error code, typically Error 500.
    I have checked everything as far as I can and Amelia is compatible and should work. Do you have any suggestions of what might be going wrong.

    Thanks in anticipation

  8. Hi Om, I believe that I have a fix to this issue. The version released by Amelia is not compatible with WP and they have given me a pre-release version that appears to work.
    One less thing to worry about.

        Thank you for all these amazing customizations, I’ve found almost everything I wanted to change on your page. Just one more thing, in addition to the yellow/orange circle at the top, there’s also a small dot in a line just above the previous post – next post navigation. How do I change the color of that one as well?
