Building a Beautifully Accessible & Responsive Web for WordPress

Hello. I installed a theme but when I load the page appears a bar that allows you to log in WordPress. I would remove that bar is it possible ? Thanks for everything.
My apologies for being so long in replying! I’ve been away. I’m guessing that you are talking about a widget in the sidebar? If so, for some reason WordPress defaults to adding that. It’s not in the theme. You can delete it using Appearance Widgets. Let me know if that’s not the issue.
I am now using your theme for my client’s website. At the end of each page, there is a “Leave a Reply” section which I don’t want it to appear. I can’t get rid of it and I can only set it to “You must be logged in to post a comment.” so that no one can actually post a comment. Is there any proper way of getting rid of this section?
Please refer to this web page which has given me a lot of hints.
The only thing that has not been covered is how to disable discussion (Leave a Reply) for those web pages that have been created before your customization. You have to go to the Screen Options and check out Discussion before it shows up and lets you disable discussion for that individual page.
Thanks for the feedback, Jimmy. You control whether or not this shows. For example, I turned it off on my About page. To do this, when you are editing the page, make sure you can see the “Discussion” box underneath the box where you enter the content. If you don’t see “Discussion”, at the top of the page, click on the “Screen Options” tab and check the “Discussion” box. Now scroll down to the bottom of the page. Uncheck both “Allow comments” and “Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page.” That will take care of it.
Also, I’m glad to hear the Faith 2015 page helped you because I wrote that. 🙂 I’ll be sure to see what I’ve got there that’s missing on this site.
OMG!! Thanks for this information. I contacted the web hoster and he told me that the reply box was mandatory for this theme, and I should pick another theme. I am an assistive technologist, and I picked this theme specifically for the accessibility features. I would have been so sad to abandon it!!
Hello, I’m using your theme on a client’s site. It seems that the menuing system does not work as expected on the iPhone6, but rather stays in a black bar, just like on the desktop.
Is this a design decision you made, or is the code not working as expected?
Thanks for asking about this. I did this intentionally for accessibility reasons. The hamburger icon especially does not work for a lot of people. What I’ve done is to hide the middle sections of the menu. For most sites, I’d encourage you to have a Site Map as the last link. You can use the Site Map page template and that will set one up automatically. Hope that helps.
Not only on iPhone, but on handsets running Android and Windows Phone as well.
As I am building a bilingual website, I used the top menu for pages in English and the bottom menu for another language. Without showing all the menu items, I repeated both menus on the sidebar instead of a site map so that the languages will not mixed together.
However, is it possible to make the menu scrollable sideway if the screen width is not big enough? Alternatively, is it possible to make the menu appear vertically with one menu item on one line if the screen is too small?
That’s awesome that it’s a bilingual site! And I believe the perfect solution for you is to use a “Custom Menu” in the sidebar. You name and build the menu over in the “Menus” portion of the admin panel, then in the “Widgets” panel, you pick your new menu from the “Custom Menu” dropdown. I hope that helps. And I would love to see your site when it’s ready, so if you think of it, drop me a line.
Something funny above when I used angle brackets.
“h2” was used and I want to change it to h3 or smaller.
Jimmy – I’m guessing you are talking about for the sidebar headings. If so, because of the “document outline” an H3 label is not as semantically as correct as H2, and thus less desirable from an accessibility perspective. To make a smaller font size, one way to do this would be to set up a child theme. Another is to (1) add a “Text” widget to the sidebar, (2) not give it a title and then in the box enter the actual HTML, e.g.
<h3>My No Title Sidebar Widget</h3> Whatever text you need in the sidebar.
I hope that helps.
Thanks for the SVG article – I am doing a bunch of work on SVG, and in particular, how to make it accessible, and looking for people who want to join in.
One little comment on your article – you removed the viewBox attribute which you really should keep IMHO. Was that an oversight, or was there some reason to do so?
Thanks, Chaals! It’s been a while since I worked on that and I don’t remember why I deleted viewBox. I just checked recent SVGs I’ve created and I’ve included it. Could you let me know why you think it should be kept?
