This is the best looking P2 child theme I’ve ever met.
But added a few function may be better:
1. The new status post to be pending, users and admin can see it in frontend, manager or reach 2 users through the audit.
2. Restrict users every day or one hour post number.
Some not important:
3. The subscriber does not allow the use front postform, and prompt.
4. It can also support the selection category, although the other plugin can do.
5. In other languages, support multiple tags with spaces separating.
Is this going to make it to wordpress.com? Sure would love to have it available there ….
I’m not familiar with the process of having it available on a WordPress.com hosted site. I’ll have to look into it.
Thanks for the reply.
I’d use it on my personal site, but I’m using muut.com forum/commenting system. Two issues: a large space is taken up on the main page with the comment inserted; two, in posts, both muut and WP comment boxes are shown. Muut removes the latter, so something in the theme has let it back in. Not your problem, I know.
Yeah, not really sure how to fix that. Mercury doesn’t change hardly any of the php from P2, so it’s likely an issue there.
Gotcha. I hadn’t tried P2 on my blog since installing muut, so wouldn’t have noticed that. But Mercury is so cool looking, plus responsive, just gotta use it somewhere. 🙂
Hey there! Paul Hughes here, lead developer on the Muut plugin. Saw this thread and wanted to check into the issue; we definitely want to make sure Muut is good to go out of the box as much as possible—especially with progressive (i.e. responsive) themes like this one.
I tried replicating the issue, and off the bat, I’m actually not able to. I’m seeing Muut properly replace the default commenting box rather than showing additionally. Wanted to check if this was still an issue so I can see what we can do on the Muut end.
Let me know! 🙂
Ah, I also forgot to mention: Featured images don’t show up anywhere. Hmm.
P2 doesn’t support Featured images. This might be something I could add down the road.
Probably not a big deal unless, like my blog, somebody is installing it on an existing WP site. If not for this, I probably would have started using it, since my present one has been up longer than any before it.
Then again, I think I started using the Featured Image just recently, so maybe …
Thanks again for this. It was way past time for a P2 update.
Thanks for the kind words!
Have you thought of including Category option in the front page post feature? P2-Category does it, though with an ugly dropdown menu. You shortened the Tag It field, could insert category next to it, and use the auto-fill to suggest categories already created.
Or is a category option starting to complicate the simplicity of it? 🙂
This first release of Mercury was really just for look and feel, and I didn’t add any functionality. I might start to expand its features in the next release though, we’ll see.
Hello, I apologize for my bad language. I use mercury them. I create a page in P2 theme that’s name is “category-3.php” and include codes from “index.php” and “post-form.php” to “category-3.php”. In this time I want when a user going to that category and post anything, this post automatically go to that category. Thank you
I’m sorry, that’s beyond the features of this theme right now.
Hello Ryan i’am very interest with your theme, this is simple for newbie blogger like me.
But i have tried to find why in some article i don’t look the Tittle of my article.
You can look at this http://www.persija.club/pengertian-perambah-hutan/ in this article we find Tittle of Article “Pengertian Perambah Hutan” under admin name and tags but why in this link http://www.persija.club/cara-memilih-nama-domain/ i can not find the Tittle of Article “Cara Memilih Domain” under admin name and tags
Please help me Ryan, i want all show Tittle of my Article under name admin and tags
Sorry it took awhile to reply, it looks like you’ve already changed your theme so I’m not able to see what’s happening.
No no please check again….maybe yesterday i upload new theme, but i prefer choose mercury if this problem can fix
Took a few minutes but I figured it out…
The title is there, but it has a class of “transparent-title” which causes it to not show up.
The reason that class is applied is explained in P2’s functions.php file. It states: “Avoid processing the title if it’s the very first part of the post content”
The first text in your post is the same as the title, and so the title is made invisible.
This is part of the parent P2 theme, and not something I’d change in Mercury. You could update the functions.php file yourself though to disable that functionality.
Hi Ryan. I really love where you are going with this theme. I have always liked the idea of P2 but the lack of extra functionality lets it down a bit.
I just tested your theme with bbpress running and the results look awesome bar a few glitches. Makes me think that if Mercury was adapted for bbpress it would be the style answer that so many are looking for.
At the moment I am in the process of building a local community project and am looking for the best option for a Q and A forum. bbpress is good but looks so ugly. Your theme makes it look great and inviting to users. I noticed that others were asking about function as well. Perhaps you might consider switching camps.
Hey Craig, I’m not familiar with bbpress at all, really. Is it just a matter of modifying Mercury, or does it use totally separate themes than the base WP install?
Sorry Ryan. I didn’t know that you had replied to my prompt. bbPress and BuddyPress adopt the theme attributes of the host. So you would create a theme with much of the styles you have already created and tweak it a bit. But from what I saw of your theme it wouldn’t need much adjustments. Dedicated themes for bbPress and Buddypress are in high demand but most of the available themes over the top. BuddyBoss being the simple exception.
How do you install a child theme?
In your WordPress admin, in Appearance > Themes, search for the P2 theme and install it. Then, do the same for Mercury.
I love what you’ve done with this theme but when I try to post from the home page I’m getting a message that says, “Whoops – looks like you are not connected to the server. P2 could not connect with WordPress”. Can’t figure out what is up with that. Never had this problem with a P2 theme before.
If you activate P2 instead of Mercury on the same install, do you get the same error?
Ah – I just figured it out – had to update WP! BUT…. now there is no ability to upload media via mobile and I’m sure there was before.
Ugh – I apologize – I am contacting the wrong theme owner. I’ll get back to you if I switch back to Mercury, which is a possibility…
Thanks for your good work, Ryan! I really appreciate what you’ve made.
Keep up the good job!
