Home page looking wierd

Recommended Posts

Eldar

I`ve installed TNG 12 and Wordpress on my page. After some trying and failing, it seems that I`ve gotten the installation fairly finished. But I wonder why my home page look so colorless and blank: http://slekti.no/genealogy/

How can I change that? 

Is i through template setting in TNG Admin, or theme setting in wordpress?

That means it all worked to get the plugin working.

You need to go to the file index.php that is in your TNG folder and edit that. You can add images, text blocks etc as desired.

To make changes to the colour of things you can add style classes in the file css/mytngstyle.css and apply those styles to elements on the edited page.

Take  look at http://LisaAndRoger.com/Genealogy/index.php to get an idea of what can be possible.

Thank you!

But how can I then take advantage of the templates included in TNG? If I for example want use Template 17?

My suggestion is to not use a TNG template if you're trying to have your site look like it's all one thing.

Using a TNG template means that there are 2 headers on each page - the WordPress header and then the TNG header. And the colours/themes don't cross from one to the other tidily.

Okay. One last question. Can I install TNG without Wordpress? And then use TNG-templates? 

My site is only for genealogy, so I dont need all the "extras" Wordpress has to offer.

Yes - most people with TNG sites run them alone without WordPress.
