Adding tabs to Affilotheme 3.0

Playing around with the newest affilotheme 3.0 I have comfortably mastered siloing my categories. Is there possibly a way to add tabs to the top of the page under the header?

Hi Heavysm,

AffiloTheme does not support custom menus yet. The only way to add a custom menu (or tabs below the header) is to add a WordPress menu plugin such as the PixoPoint menu plugin. Once this plugin is installed, edit the header.php file using the theme editor and insert the appropriate code below the header section after the line

<!-- End AffiloTheme Theme Header -->

Having trouble following what you mean Mike. I have that plugin installed. I open the theme editor and edit the head.php file? This is exactly what i see:

/* header */
#header{background:#2681AC;height:150px;color:#fff;}
#header h3, #header h1{font:normal 20pt georgia, times;margin:0;padding:20px 20px 0;}
#header h3 a, #header h1 a{color:#fff;text-decoration:none;}
#header h4{font:normal 10pt georgia, times;margin:0;padding:0 20px;}

I don't see the header.php to edit. I used the header creator within the affilotheme to create my header. Not sure if that affects anything.

The file that you're looking at is the CSS file. You need to load the header.php file from the theme files list at the right side of the theme editor.

Hi Mike

I found the <!-- End AffiloTheme Theme Header -->
Now what code do I put under that so that my pages display in the header??

Hi,

Is there an easy way to change the colours of the pixo point menu plugin? I tried to contact their support site, but they weren't very helpful..

Thanks,

Duraid

I am having a problem with the opt-in boxes. How to I get them on the pages and how can I make them smaller in the sidebar? I used the code from aweber and the blueprint 3.0 theme. Thanks!

You can copy the code for the opt-in box and paste it after your post when in HTML view in the Edit Posts area. If you want it on the sidebar, you can place the scripts/code on the Custom Scripts field in Affilotheme > Sidebar. You can resize the box in Aweber. This will generate a new code and this is what you need to place in the sidebar.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!
