The Media Maven theme is a very clean and straight up blog theme. Inspired in part by the design of Apple.com, Media Maven has all the usual features you would expect from one of our WP themes including support for custom menus and widgets etc.

  1. Hello, I have a sticky post on my site that I’d like to remove the date from, but I’d like all my other posts to retain the date. I do not want to make a static page. Is there a modification I can apply to get rid of the date on the sticky post? Thanks!

    • Hi @trevor,

      Thanks for using our theme

      Unfortunately it’s not possible to update or change site name to logo, to do that you have to make your hand dirty by editing the file directly but make sure you’re using child theme, so new theme update won’t replace your changes.

      The file you only need to update is header.php in line #19

      Hope that helps

      • I found a way around the logo but with a trade-off. I used it as the background and fixed it centre. Unfortunately this means I cannot have my chosen background. I did look at the header.php but although I know html for image I don’t know how to add that to the php without buggering it up.

        • Yeah that might work but if you need background there’s another way to add logo, open header.php and in line #18-21(it’s for Site Title and Slogan) update that area, so instead of Site Title and Slogan update it with your own logo(or maybe only replace the site title line)

          1. Add your logo to THEME_NAME/images/
          2. call it in header.php file, e.g. <img src="<?php echo get_bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/LOGO_NAME.JPG/PNG" />

          in that you can add your own background

          Hope that helps

    • Hi Trevor, I’m not following the question. What do you mean remove indents on paragraphs? Perhaps you could illustrate with a screenshot or a link?

  2. Sorry – sorted the indent in paragraphs out. This theme does it automatically.
    But one more query please. How can I make the page titles sit in the centre rather than to left? Could you tell me where and what the code is to do this. Many thanks (I’m so loving the theme)

    • Open style.css file and at line #219 or in .entry-header selector add text-align: center;

      Or if you mean the heading inside your page content you can simply align it in Page Editor area or use this code instead .entry-content h2{ text-align: center; }

      Hope that helps

  3. Would you be able to tell me how to disable the link buttons on some/all of the main menu (top)? I would like only the pages listed below each heading to be links, rather than the button itself. Thank you kindly

    • Hi Trevor, best way to do this is to create a custom menu if you havn’t already (Appearance > Menus) and simply remove the link from the top level menu items.

    • Hello,

      If you want to display the featured image above the content then add this code on line 12 in the file content-single.php inside the theme folder.
      the_post_thumbnail();
      Make sure this code is inside php tag.

      Cheers!

      • Thanks for the help!
        It works on the pages with a single posts. However, it doesn’t work in the blog pages, not even when I put the code in the content-page.php file.
        Can you also give me a tip of how I can place the featured image at the left of the content?

        • Hi Peter, this is going to require more code and styling than we can really get into here in the comments. If you need professional help with this I suggest trying Elto or Codeable for very low cost theme customization. Just a reminder too that you should set up a child theme before any customization.
