Started using this theme, overwhelmed with all the options.

So for now, I'm going to throw some questions:

1. How to easily remove the social icons in the header?
2. How to disable easy login / register on the frontend? This is for a commercial site, don't want to give the CMS feel.
3. How to remove the "Written by..." at the beginning of every page?
4. How to remove the "Tagged..." at the end of every page?
5. How to edit the footer and debug?

Hope most of this can be done via the admin tools, without editing via PHP / CSS

Thanks in advance for your time.

Final detail: the link to the layout in the theme main page is incorrect. It shows:
http://www.shape5.com/demo/index.php?wp/pardigm-shift/features/theme-features/widget-positions
When it should be: (note PARADIGM)

Started using this theme, overwhelmed with all the options.

So for now, I'm going to throw some questions:

1. How to easily remove the social icons in the header?

In the admin under "Shape 5 Theme -> Theme Specific", you should be able to remove the URLs for the social buttons and have them disappear.

2. How to disable easy login / register on the frontend? This is for a commercial site, don't want to give the CMS feel.

At the bottom of the "General" tab in the theme admin, just remove the text for the login/logout/register, and those should disappear as well.

3. How to remove the "Written by..." at the beginning of every page?

Unfortunately, there's no global admin toggle for this one...  You can disable per post by clicking the "Scren Options" tab in the top right corner of the page/post editor and enabling "Shape 5 Options"; this will show additional options you can toggle for each post.

However, since you want it disabled globally, you can edit "vertex/theme-globals.php"

Either change line # 160 from
Code:
$s5_loop_tags['author'] = '<div style="margin-top:;"><span class="small">Written by %Author%</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;</div>';
to
Code:
$s5_loop_tags['author'] = '';

OR

remove
Code:
<!--%author_credit%-->
from line 151.

Either will work, but the second option might be faster loading.


4. How to remove the "Tagged..." at the end of every page?

Another that is either toggled in the editor or needs a code edit, sorry.

"vertex/loop.php" - change

Code:
if ( $tags_list && get_post_meta($post->ID, '_s5_tags', true) != 'Disabled'):
to
Code:
if (false):

5. How to edit the footer and debug?

The footer can be edited in 2 ways; you can edit "vertex/footer.php", or you can place a text widget in the "Footer Credits" sidebar position.

Debug is a widget area as well if you used the Shaper and just want to remove the text, you can just remove the text wiget from that position.


Hope most of this can be done via the admin tools, without editing via PHP / CSS

Thanks in advance for your time.

Final detail: the link to the layout in the theme main page is incorrect. It shows:

http://www.shape5.com/demo/index.php?wp/paradigm-shift/features/theme-features/widget-positions

Where exactly is the broken link you're referring to?  In the demo or somewhere else on the site?

Sorry I couldn't avoid code edits for everything...  I'm trying to reduce the need for edits in the next version of the framework, but I'll probably still miss some things initially.

I'm glad I could help.

Thanks for the heads up on the broken link; I don't control that part of the site, but I've pointed it out to someone who does.
