    Ok I’ve noticed a lot of you have a problem with the 125×125 image ads in the top right hand corner of the Hamashi theme. I had the same problem. For day’s I was trying to find the admin page in wp-admin to place my images but there is none.

    So here is your answer. Go to your wp-admin and under appearances click on editor. Then go to sidebar.php. You will now see your 4 ad spaces as so:

    <img src="/images/ads/ads1.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”Your Ads Here” />
    <img src="/images/ads/ads1.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”Your Ads Here” />
    <img src="/images/ads/ads1.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”Your Ads Here” />
    <img src="/images/ads/ads1.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”Your Ads Here” />

    Place your image and destination urls as you see fit then press update fill and your done.

    Hope this helps all of you with this problem. It’s the only way I found how to do it.

    The Hamasaki theme is, by far, my favourite. I’ve read many comments about embedding videos from YouTube… has this been solved? Can you make a thumbnail from a video?
    Another problem that I have is that the image resizes properly when it is “featured” on the index.php page but the images are not shrunk to fit when viewing posts by categories (instead, there’s only a small part of the image that is visible). Can anyone tell me how to auto-resize these images to fit the thumbnail placeholders? Thanks!

  105. Avatar Keith Bickford

    First off I want to thank you for your work on this theme, honestly I think its better than many of the paid magazine themes out there.

    I have a question about using featured images within the theme. I generally have post without any images inside of them, such as just posting you tube video with some text. I am trying add the ability to use the featured image as the post thumbnail. I have taken and modified the code for this but get no return from the post thumbnail

    <div class="tumbr" style="z-index:2;margin-left: 10px;float:right; width: 295px; height: 190px; background: url(/images/no-img.gif) 0 0 no-repeat; content: ".";">

      I think this might let me show my code better

    1. Avatar Jauhari

      Hi Deb.. what you mean nesting pages? Is that you mean multi drop down menu page?

      1. Avatar Deb

        I mean sub pages like take for example, the about page if i want to have another page titled volunteers and i go to my administration panel, i add a new page assign it to the about page as the parent page, give it the B page, and click update. the page wont show up on the site..how can i fix this? it will only show the about page and no drop down sub pages show up

  122. Avatar deb

    using your Hamasaki template and can not get the pages to nest into each other..for example I have the About Page and want to add the volunteer page under it so when someone hovers over the about page another page will be seen titled volunteered and can click on it..
    this is what administration page says have settings as About and default template and 2 in last box

    You can arrange your pages in hierarchies. For example, you could have an “About” page that has “Life Story” and “My Dog” pages under it. There are no limits to how deeply nested you can make pages.
    Page Template

    Some themes have custom templates you can use for certain pages that might have additional features or custom layouts. If so, you’ll see them above.

    Page Order

    Pages are usually ordered alphabetically, but you can put a number above to change the order pages appear in.

    Hi, Great theme! I love the style. Just a couple of problems. When the headings on posts are a bit long makes it messy at the bottom as it runs over the lines between each post. (On the front page – if you look you’ll see).

    And images on front page all pick up the latest post image rather than having the correct image showing. Ok on all the other pages.

    Any suggestions as to how to fix?

    Love the theme, however, a couple of issues–
    How do I put the ads in the ad box (the 125×125’s)top right side of site?
    THere’s no widget for that space.

    Also, about the header–shouldn’t it be at the top and not on the sidebar. When I add my custom image–it does not appear at top but on sidebar-how can i fix this please? Thank you very much.

    Hi, thank you for the lovely theme, this is my first time working with WordPress. I have two questions:

    1. I would like to make the article excerpts under the main post (the big grey box) to be wide like the big grey box, instead of it being boxes.

    2. How can I remove the featured posts at the bottom of the page (I don’t want these at all)?

    Are these two items achievable, and if so, can you tell me how to make these changes?

    Thank you so much!

    Hi, there. I love your theme. Thank you for putting such detailed thought into it!

    But I’m having some problems setting up my site – an environmental site called MyGreenATL.com. My main issues so far:

    1) My WP categories aren’t showing up under “Hamasaki Options” (only “uncategorized” shows up on the list on that page), so “no categories” shows up on the category bar.

    2) I can’t figure out how to change the background color for the category bar.

    3) Is there a way to make the featured post block a little shallower (shorter) than it is now?

    I tried to make the text in the featured box bigger, by changing the code from 220, as you said, but it didn’t have any effect. Is there some way you could explain how to expand this text better?

    Also, I was wondering if it’s possible to remove the second section (headings in green) completely, and bump the third section up in to it’s place?

    Lastly, how can I remove the post metadata from being visible in the pages?

    Thanks so much for great template, and hope you have time to answer me.

        I am going to replace the css “ads-” with “images-” and see how it goes.

My front page is displaying an image in the featured story, but the image is cut off. Also, the other articles on the page do not have images showing. Do I need to create thumbnails of all images i want to use and once I’ve done that, how do I let the template know how to insert them in the right places.

    Is it possible to exclude a category from the main (middle) section?

    All my posts in my “Featured Category” (under the black bar at the bottom) are also being duplicated in the middle section… Do I have to edit the code in home.php manually and if so, what code can I use to do this?

    And is there a reason for the ayumi-options.php page to be in the folder since this is the Hamasaki Theme and it has it’s own hamasaki-options.php page?

    I am battling to set this theme up properly and I’m confused whether these extra pages are making any differences.

    In your FAQ you say:
    How to Show Featured Page in Top Post?
    Open home.php and find this code

    And change it…

    But I this is not the same as the code that I find in the home.php file. The closest I could find was this:
    have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post();
    $do_not_duplicate = $post->ID;?>

    Has the code changed since the FAQ was posted?

    Awesome Template, thank you SOOOOO much! :d/ I’ve got few things I’d like to figure out how to do. You can answer me here, or it would be best to email your answer to me.

    First, after looking at the screen shot you have up in the post, I’m not sure how to get the second section (the posts with the green headings) to show up.

    Second, on the section at the bottom, in the black bar, several categories are showing up, instead of just “featured” or “news” (two categories I have). Is there a way to have just the “News” link show up, even though it may be listed in multiple categories.

    Finally, is there a way to set up the archive pages to show a list of all the posts in that category instead of just one at a time?

    Thanks for your help ahead of time.

          .tages {
          position: absolute;
          left: 0;
          bottom: 0px;


          Mark is out. Change it to:

    Unfortunately I had to switch to a new theme as I had overlapping words on the category pages and was not able to resolve the problem. :(

    1. Avatar Joshua

      I have not seen the exact same issue as you claim on the Category pages, however. I have encountered a similar issue on the main page and on comments.

      Words were overlapping with other words. Mainly the snippet of the post would overlap with the read more and comment links, and on the comments I would have words overlapping with the date and time of the comment.

      So, I fixed these issues by editing the CSS. The problem laid in setting the position to absolute. Absolute value is fine for most items on the site (like search bar), but when you have dynamic data such as comments or post snippets which could be variable in size … it can push divs over other divs.

      I fixed this by setting the absolute values to static. I suppose the same could be done with the category pages, but since I have not run into that problem just yet I have not gone to fix the CSS there.

      Here is what I changed on the CSS template:
      First open style.css in your favorite text editor (I use notepad++)

      In style.css you will need to edit the following code. This will fix the home page overlapping word issue. I am sure others have had the same problem ;)

      Around line 262 find this code:

      .lastlast .metameta {
      position: absolute;
      bottom: 20px;
      right: 20px;

      and change it to:

      .lastlast .metameta {
      position: static;
      bottom: 20px;
      right: 20px;

      Around line 314 find this code:

      .posties .metameta {
      position: absolute;
      bottom: 5px;
      left: 0;
      width: 315px;
      .posties .metameta .commr {
      position: absolute;
      bottom: 0;
      right: 0;

      .double .metameta .commr {
      text-align: right;
      position: absolute;
      right: 0;
      bottom: 10px;

      .tages {
      position: absolute;
      left: 0;
      bottom: 10px;

      and change it to:

      .posties .metameta {
      position: static;
      bottom: 5px;
      left: 0;
      width: 315px;
      .posties .metameta .commr {
      position: static;
      bottom: 0;
      right: 0;

      .double .metameta .commr {
      text-align: right;
      position: static;
      right: 0;
      bottom: 10px;

      .tages {
      position: static;
      left: 0;
      bottom: 10px;

      Now you will notice that the words are not running together anymore, however. You might notice that the dotted line at the bottom of each post snippet might become overlapped.

      This is due to the posties class having a set height. You can either remove the height or adjust the height.

      If you remove the height you will not have any overlapping errors any more. If you adjust the height, then it might do ok for the time being, but it will always be prone to being overlapped in the future.

      I adjusted my height, and if I run into any future problems then I will just remove the height all together.

      The choice is yours, but here is the code you need to change.

      Around line 288 find code:

      .posties {
      height: 180px;
      margin-bottom: 20px;
      position: relative;

      and change to

      .posties {
      height: 230px;
      margin-bottom: 20px;
      position: relative;

      or change to this if you want to remove height

      .posties {
      margin-bottom: 20px;
      position: relative;

      I found that a pixel height of 230 is fine for me now. If need be I can remove height in future.

      Also, if you notice on the main page where the feature post goes, then you will see that the comment link moved from bottom right to right under the post snippet.

      Let’s move it back, but we need to edit two files.
      First we will edit style.css since we still have this file open.

      Around line 327 find code:

      .double .metameta .commr {
      text-align: right;
      position: static;
      right: 0;
      bottom: 10px;

      And add this code under it after the } (do not edit the code above)

      .commr2 {
      position: absolute;
      bottom: 0;
      right: 0;

      .commr2 {
      text-align: right;
      position: absolute;
      right: 0;
      bottom: 10px;

      Now open up home.php

      Around line 39 find this code:

      and change to:

      That should move the comment link on the feature post back to the bottom right ;)

      Now, we need to edit the comments section and fix it so it does not overlap! This is the easiest fix. Only need to change one code section.

      Open file style.css

      Around line 633 find code:

      .commentmetadata {
      position: absolute;
      bottom: 10px;

      and change it to:

      .commentmetadata {
      position: static;
      bottom: 10px;

      That’s it!

      If I run into the category overlapping issue then I will post a fix for it here.

      Best of luck to you.

    I installed this theme but some issues.

    Theme works and loads properly. I understand how to change the number of posts, changing images etc. But the issue that faceis, I use a lot of tags and what happens is in the archives pages, the preview becomes messy. The summary that you automatically grab overlaps with the tags and makes it look bad.

    How can I remove tags in the preview? I just want title and summary to be shown? Which file do I need to edit?

        I’m also wondering how we can change the preview image? It only shows the left corner. Is there a way to crop this? The only fix I found was changing the initial uploaded image to the size of the thumbnail. Is there any other option? Is there a way to view a different part of the photo?

        I’m also having problems with tags overlapping as well.

        Great theme though

    Hi Jauhari,

    I was hoping you could help me. I really like your theme and would like to keep it, but I am having problems with the category pages. When you click on a category, the list of posts are a mess with overlapping words/tags. I’ve tried getting this fixed and basically I was told I would need to change themes. This is my last ditch effort to find out if someone can help me or I have to change themes.

    Good evening!
    I have a (probably stupid) question: how to you show the images next to the excerpts in the featured posts?
    Thank you,

  238. Avatar Brick Andrews

    bishop27: You can eliminate this error by commenting out lines 78 to 83 in the functions.php file. As far as I can tell, this is a WP 2.7 issue. I think this part of the template code attempts to take advantage of WP 2.7 features to separate comments from trackbacks in the comment count. It appears that there is no harm in commenting this out (I assume that the comment count will show comments plus trackbacks).
