The Hives Usage:
There are 5 plugins which you’ll need to install before using the theme. They are provided via the zip file. You’ll want to pay attention to the Lifestream options as well as make sure you add the Lifestream Widget into the homepage sidebar to get that working. There are three sidebar widgets for your use.
There’s a Related Posts Plugin also which will require a little setup. To show related posts you’ll need to have posts with the same tags, which uses the Simple Tags Plugin. Go to that plugin >>> Related Posts Tab >>> Display related posts into feeds is unchecked. Set the automatically display of related posts into post content as No. Finally, the post link format needs to be set to this:
<a href=”%post_permalink%” title=”%post_title% (%post_date%)”>%post_title%</a> <span class=”post-date”>%post_date%</span>
The Featured Posts for the carousel on the left are easy: Just create a “Featured” category and assign posts to it. To show a photo, simply add a custom field called “Photo” and then the value as the link to the file. Make sure the width of the image is 380px!
