Hello, Just recently bought your tripod theme.
Having troubles getting the blog page to work...
Could you also describe the different between posts and pages?
Also - Having troubles setting up galleries to look like your template http://demo.cosmothemes.com/tripod-fixed/gallery/cras-commodo-feugiat-nisl-eget-porttitor/
Please explain how to go about this. Thank you!
p.s- I've been on the forums, and even youtube. and it seems they have a template and layout created for this to look that way, but dont explain WHAT and where the template looks like and layout.
Hi to all,
Here is a small description about Galleries in Posts, Post of format type Gallery, Galleries like Custom Post and Views.
1. What you can see in Mosaic format here http://demo.cosmothemes.com/tripod-colored/ - till the words "BLOG POSTS" - this is a VIEW (Mosaic VIEW). You can place here Galleries, posts, pages, etc. It's like a group of objects. Every thumbnail means an object (gallery/post/page/etc).
2. If you select first thumbnail, it goes to a GALLERY : http://demo.cosmothemes.com/tripod-colored/gallery/sed-posuere-ultricies-mauris-eget-mollis/
This is a Gallery, that can be added here: http://i.imgur.com/ksNFayl.png and all the images inside it can be added like in the links from this topic: http://cosmothemes.com/forums/topic/6701
3. This is a Gallery from a POST of format type Gallery: http://demo.cosmothemes.com/tripod-colored/2013/03/29/proin-metus-diam-hendrerit-et-mollis-ut-ultrices-ac-lorem/
Just add a post, change it's format to Gallery, and add images: http://i.imgur.com/6zXTXhv.png
4. This is a simple Gallery in a POST of format type STANDARD: http://i.imgur.com/ARb6f30.png . Just add images with "ADD MEDIA" button.
Pages are more like static pages (wow), created for a special reason, and it will not be modified/alter too much in time. It's like Contact page (where your contact info is), Search page (search results/options).
Posts are every-day entries. They are coming (like fresh information) and are replaced by other posts sooner or later.
