Hi, I’ve been setting up my blog with bref. I have the the archive, recent posts, and search widgets in the footer. When I click on the blog page they are no longer visible, they are only seen on the home page. Is there a way to make them visible at all times?
I set up a page with the contact template, but when I test it out I get the thank you message but I never receive the email. Is there some other setting I need to change for it to work?Andrés Villarreal January 9, 2015 at 6:14 pm
The pre-footer widgets in Bref are meant to be displayed only in the home page. You can find the code that manages that part inside the template-home.php file: it’s the whole “if” statement that begins right before “BEGIN #pre-footer-widgets”.
However, if you want to put that code in other templates, I recommend you to use a child theme (http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes) to make changes without modifying the original files, so your Bref installation won’t break with upcoming updates.
About the other issue with the contact form, some servers require additional configuration to be able to send emails. I’d suggest to try the WP Mail SMTP plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/) and see if that gets it working.
Thank you for writing, please let us know how it goes 🙂
