    Hi Paul,

    Are you trying to set the text for Posts or Pages?

    I’ve half-sussed the font issue. It’s Canvas / Theme Options / Post Styling / Post Text Font Style that dictates para text in Pages, which seems counter intuitive.
    I still don’t understand what Canvas / Theme Options / General Typography / General Text Font Style controls – anyone any ideas please?

    I’ve now a handle on what General Typography does – used for text you don’t write.
    Something else to be aware of – using Canvas if you nominate a page as template Portfolio and have php to allow additional content, general typography seems to dictate the size of Shortcode Buttons, regardless of which size you nominate when setting the Button up!

    Canvas navigation styling allows the current menu item colour to be changed,which changes the background colour, but I can’t find out how to change the text colour on this button.

    Sorted – the Canvas upgrade offers new ability to colour this text

    Hi Jamie,

    Is Canvas ok to use as a theme that will work on mobiles and ipads/tablets?
    I noticed you said Whitelight is mobile friendly, what about Canvas?

    Thanks

    Hi Liz,

    Yes the latest version of Canvas 5 has been made responsive so it will work on ipads and tablets :)

    Hi Jamie

    In Canvas, I used the CSS code to take out page titles (from your 30 useful tweaks page – so I don’t get double page titles appearing). However, it appears to be affecting posts too in that they appear on my blog page without titles. I wonder if there is a way to get post titles to appear?
    Thanks

    Hi Anne,

    Try using Post styling in Canvas theme options.

    Hi Jamie, A few questions regarding Canvas:

    1. Is there a way of building the site and only having a ‘holding page’ visible to outside world?
    I have changed privacy settings to not be indexed by search engines – is there anything else I can do?? Ideally I’d like to have a ‘countdown’ page until the launch date.

    2. PAGES/BLOGS – Typo settings
    I think somehow when I was setting up pages I’ve confused it so it thinks pages are blog pages as the typographical settings seem to apply to the Latest News page and not rest of the pages. How do I remedy this? See http://www.clementsplace.co.uk

    3. Google analytics: For the life of me I can’t get Google analytics to acivate – it keeps giving me: “Unfortunately, an error occurred while connecting to Google, please try again”.I tried changing privacy settings back so it could be seen, but it didn’t make any difference. Am I missing something?

    4. Sidebar – how do I change this according to which page the user is on? ie want to have different Calls to Action depending on what page they are on. Is this all in sidebar manager? is there a tutorial on this?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Here are your answers :)

    1. Is there a way of building the site and only having a ‘holding page’ visible to outside world?

    Yes, use this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-maintenance-mode/

    2) 2. PAGES/BLOGS – Typo settings

    Make sure you have changed all typography in Canvas/theme settings/Typography and Posts Typography

    3. Google analytics:

    There is an option with the Yoast Analytics plugin to enter the UA code manually. Try this, it should work – I have seen this message before and doing this has always worked for me.

    4) Sidebar – how do I change this according to which page the user is on? ie want to have different Calls to Action depending on what page they are on. Is this all in sidebar manager? is there a tutorial on this?

    Use the Sidebar manager to specify specific widget areas for specific pages,

     

    Let me know if that all works!

    Good luck,

    Jamie

    Hi Jamie

    Posts…

    Images that appear in my tabs post side bar are coming in circular – I want them square. Any ideas how I can change this?

    Also, I want to get rid of the widgets sidebar altogether on my blog page – I’ve tried using the override option at the bottom of the blog page itself but it’s not working.  Grateful for any insights that you can offer on this one.

    Thanks

    Hi Jaimie

    Did a bit of searching around and found this useful bit of  code to go in the Canvass custom CSS which converts the circular images in the posts to square. Problem solved!

    #tabs .inside li img.avatar, #tabs .inside li img.thumbnail {
    border-radius: 0 0 0 0;
    }

    Hi Jamie,

    I am a new subscriber and new to WordPress and Canvas.   I want to build several ecommerce websites.  Many things I have read say that the child theme ‘Canvas Commerce’ is the way to go to integrate WooCommerce and Canvas.  BUT, I can’t find it anywhere on the WooThemes website.  Your link to it only goes to the support page.  Other external links I have found are either dead or go to the support page.  How do I buy this or is it no longer needed?

    Hi James,

    Firstly, thanks for joining the Academy and good to see you on the forums :)

    Yes, as of a couple of weeks ago you no longer need the Canvas child theme http://www.woothemes.com/2012/09/building-better-business-themes/ with Woocommerce. All Woocommerce styling is now included in Canvas. I’ll update the tutorial in the next few minutes to make this clear.

    Hi Jamie,

    Thank you!

    It was your specific support for the WooThemes and Canvas in particular that made the decision to join an easy one.  I do look forward to learning all you can teach me!
