Customization of Yoghourt

By jeeremie

I will explain how to customize the Yoghourt Template.

Changing Logo (sidebar.php):

To change the logo, open the sidebar.php ( /wp_content/themes/yoghourt/sidebar.php) in a text editor (i.e: Notepad) and edit this line to link to your image:

<img src="wp-content/themes/yoghourt/images/logo.jpg" alt="Home" />

…or name your image “logo.jpg” (must be a jpg image) and save it in /wp_content/themes/yoghourt/images/ (you will be prompted to replace logo.jpg).

Editing the Author Section (sidebar.php):

To edit this section, open sidebar.php in your favorite web editor and find the comment <!– Author –>. Change the photo for one of your own and talk a little about yourself

Adding items to the main Menu (sidebar.php):

The sidebar menu features one link: About
To add more links, open the sidebar.php ( /wp_content/themes/yoghourt/sidebar.php) in a text editor (i.e: Notepad). Copy and paste:

<li><a href="<?php echo get_permalink(2); ?>" title="<?php _e('About'); ?>"><?php _e('About'); ?></a></li>

-Remember to edit your link title and the destination of your link within href=” “.

Editing the header:

Open “index.php” (/wp_content/themes/yoghourt/index.php) if you want to edit the following lines:

“Yoghourt v1.0

How about changing the language?

Hey there =) Great theme… I love it. I’m wondering if I could have a crack at the PSD’s so I can customize the color scheme and header. It would be much appreciated! Thanks…

Great theme..really enjoying it! Keep on goin…

I like your theme. Is there a way to get like sections of my post shown on my webpage? So that the whole post doesn’t show up at once on the home page like collated post?

I am sorry but I don’t understand what you want to do. Could you rephrase your question?

I think it’s called a excerpt plug in?

Oh, you want to display only post excerpt on the blog page, right?

Put the “<!–more–>” tag where you want to end the excerpted content of your post.

But if you want to change it for all your posts, the easier is to edit index.php and replace the_content() by the_excerpt(). Read Customizing the Read More »

Thank you admin!

I really like your template but I was wondering where the call is for the blog title to be up in the header. The way that I am trying to lay things out I really need to get rid of that piece of code.



I’m using your theme for my blog and it’s really enjoyable.

The only problem til now is that I don’t manage to install pagination in homepage (Pages: instead of following page).

I tried to install a plugin but it was not effective.

Is there a way to do it easily ?

A plugin is what works best. Try http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-page-numbers/ or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-paginate/ then change the css to match this theme.
