    hello!

    I bought your lovely theme just so that I could have a simple front page with one photograph on it for my blog.

    But I want to have 3 columns of thumbnails for my category lists

    And if possible, I would like a second ‘latest posts’ page with 3 columns, so that people could have the option of scrolling through thumbnails to get to my posts

    is there a ‘latest post’ shortcode i could put on a static page for the front page? tho i still need 3 columns in the other instances…

    I don’t really understand how to customize your theme to do all the wonderful things it can do!

    thanks in advance xoxox

    ok, so i got the short code for the single post in the front page, then set the blog list to 3 columns

    but i still don’t know how to get three columns of the whole blog as a menu item…

    i want to be able to click on a menu items and see all my latest posts in 3 columns

    so far i can only do that with categories and archives

    thanks for your help xox

    i imported one of your demo templates or whatever, and it wrote over my whole site with no way of starting over, ie. i couldn’t uninstall it

    i had to redo my entire site

    what i want to know now is… you have a default on each of my blog posts to display feature image

    and the picture won’t show up on my friend’s tablet until i turn that option off

    but i don’t have the time to go thru 3000 posts and turn off that option

    suggestions?

    Hi,

    Thank you for purchasing our theme. 🙂

    what i want to know now is… you have a default on each of my blog posts to display feature image
    and the picture won’t show up on my friend’s tablet until i turn that option off
    but i don’t have the time to go thru 3000 posts and turn off that option

    It is not necessary to turn off all posts. It is possible by custom CSS(“Appearance > Customize: Additional CSS”), like:

    .single-featured-image {
        display: none;
    }

    how do i get those different masonary grids on my blog page?

    There are 2 kinds of Blog pages:
    1, The default blog archive https://doc.seatheme.net/sea/blog/create-a-blog-page/
    2, By BM content builder: https://doc.seatheme.net/sea-content-builder-plugin/create-blog-by-grid-module

    thank you so much for the CSS for the feature image!

    and the create a blog by grid module, i didn’t understand that at all

    it said ‘learn how to make a grid’ and when i googled it, i just got a bunch of different plugins

    anyway, my site is beautiful thanks to your theme, it’s just what i wanted, super clean, elegant, and simple

    did you look at my site? http://totallylike.me

    thanks again,

    isn’t it lovely?? 🙂 thanks so much for looking at it xox

    one thing that’s bugging me is when i scroll with the menu bar, there is a white background to it that covers part of my blog…

    i tried to find it in CSS to change it to transparent, but my ‘inspect’ function has changed

    can you tell me how to change the header background to transparent?

    peeze? 🙂

    i also wanted to say that i have no ‘BM Content Builder’… only some sort of font thing

    any idea why i don’t have it?

    Hi,

    Please go to Appearance>Install Plugins(on the left navigation bar of wp-admin), install & activate the BM Content builder.

    Regards!

    i got a notification that there is an update to SEA

    i tried to just install it as a theme, but it said the theme is already installed

    i didn’t want to replace the one that i have, because i have put so much work into it

    how do i get the update incorporated in the current SEA theme?

    there doesn’t seem to be a page where it says ‘update available’ or anything like that

    so i don’t know how to do it

    thank you for your help

    Hi,

    You could remove the existed version theme, removing the theme is NOT meaning to remove website data. The website data is saved in a database instead of a theme file, it is WordPress rule.
    Plz check how to update: https://doc.seatheme.net/sea/installation/how-to-update-sea-theme-and-plugin/

    But still suggests you make a data backup.

    Regards!

    Hi,

    The BM Content Builder(blue button) is not in the sidebar, it is on the top bar: https://doc.seatheme.net/sea-content-builder-plugin/bm-content-builder-introduction/

    ——————————–
    If it doesn’t work, may I check your website? Could you please send your question(this topic URL) and wp-admin(URL / username/password) to uiueux@gmail.com ?

    i don’t have anything like that, i have a large bar with the whale on the left and ‘edit content’ on the right

    could that be it?

    i don’t remember my password, i’ll have to change it to let you in, so let me know if the ‘edit content’ bar isn’t it?

    thanks so much!
