    Hi waqass, there are 5 things I have found that are very problematic with using the Araiz theme, they are as follows:

    1. I need the theme to show only an excerpt with a “Read More” link for each post on the home page, not the whole post.

    I have selected the Settings > Reading > Summary option, but still it displays an entire post.

    2. Araiz over rides a Tag Cloud widget I installed and persists in displaying the tags using the default Araiz tag widget style.

    3. The “Primary Menu” button that appears on mobile is so small, and text so small, that it can barely be seen or read.

    4. The “Post Comment” button on all devices is so small, and text so small, that it can barely be seen or read.

    5. When embedding a YouTube video by pasting the share link into the post editor in Visual mode, the display of the videos is not quite right adding black space above/below the video. This is especially true on mobile devices.

    On mobile devices the theme is preventing from viewing a video in landscape mode when in fullscreen on the video too.

    EXAMPLE:

    http://blog.elanenergetics.com/2015/09/23/non-toxic-face-wrinkle-solution-using-yoga/

    Note how the video displays on YouTube, no black. Then look at how it displays on the blog using Araiz, and especially view it on a smartphone (I’m using Android).

    Hopefully you are willing/able to fix these issues, because it is a very nice theme otherwise!

    Thanks,
    Simeon

    Hi waqass, just logged in to check here because I did not get any email notifications that you had responded, and now see I forgot to tick the “Notify me…” box.

    It might be a good idea to have that selected by default!

    TY for fixing the two buttons, much better!

    Any word on when the remaining 3 problems might be resolved?

    Thanks,
    Simeon

    Hi, check out the following page http://araiz.lodse.com/index.php/2015/09/19/desert-rose/
    You can always post the videos with following short code


    Just play around to find your best settings and search internet a bit as its not a theme problem.

    The widget problem seems to be solved on your site.

    The last error is that full post is being shown instead of excerpt. I’ll update it for you.

    Just browse to the template-parts and then edit contents.php edit the following code

    the_content

    as

    the_excerpt

    Or you can simply limit the content when editing a post using the ‘INSERT READ MORE TAG’

    I can’t change the excerpt for all persons as on auto update it will limit the content for all who are using this theme.

    Hi waqass, OK… I have looked into all of this now.

    I had to switch to using another tag cloud widget as the one I had did not display as it was supposed to in this theme (have used it in others OK). But no problem, I have another one that displays as desired now and is even better in other ways.

    I have used other WP themes that behaved differently using the standard YouTube URL to embed the videos. However, it’s true that there can be variable results with that method. I’m trying to make it as easy as possible for my client. I’ll have to show them how to use the text/code editor for this purpose.

    IMPORTANT: I need to be able able to turn OFF automatic theme updates for this site so that I will be able to manually update this theme, and thereby I’ll also know when I have to re-install the modified theme files.

    Code can be placed into the wp-config.php file to disable automated theme updates…
    Would this code be correct?

    add_filter( ‘auto_update_theme’, ‘__return_false’ );

    Thanks,
    Simeon
