Why ”Sprachkonstrukt“?

It’s German for ”(programming) language construct“ and the name of my blog. Since this theme was first used there, it got its name.

Where is “Sprachkonstrukt1”?

The predecessor of this theme was not that good-looking and not available to public.

My page looks ugly / doesn’t work in Browser X!

If X is Internet Explorer, I’m afraid you have to live with it. Internet Explorer does not fully support modern web standards. Why don’t you use Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Opera instead?
If X is something else, tell me please!

The Headline font is looking differently on my friend’s Mac than on my Windows Machine!

Then you don’t have Helvetica Neue installed. Get a Mac 🙂

The social buttons on the left don’t show up!

Be sure to set the Title Attribute of your menu items correct (not just the Navigation Label!). For Twitter, it should be Twitter, for Facebook Facebook, for RSS RSS, … see here for the details

How do i get my own logo into the header?

Upload it using wordpress’ custom header feature. If you want, you can use the ./wp-content/themes/sprachkonstrukt2/images/headers/header.psd Photoshop File as a template for designing your own header.

Where is the submenu for the main navigation?

Nowhere, sorry. Just first-level-entries will be displayed.

My blog isn’t written in English, can I still use this theme?

Yes! German Language Files are included, as is the sprachkonstrukt.pot Language Template File. Using a Tool like POEdit you can translate the theme yourself. Don’t worry, it’s not that much.

What Colors are used in your CSS? I want to change them.

Just search and replace the following colors in the main stylesheet of your Child Theme:

  • #628a14 Links primary
  • #405020 Links hover
  • #96D321 Sidebar Headlines
  • #ebf1e3 Background (Comments, pre, …)

Additionally, you should change the color of /images/topmenu.png and /images/gravatar.png using a image editing software. For example, in Photoshop use the “Hue/Saturation” Tool and edit the Hue.
