Compatibility : Latest WordPress Version 2.8

Updated Features :

Auto-Sized Thumbnails

Another awesome feature with this version of Church is the ability to now display automatically generated thumbnails on the homepage. You can see that the sizes of your thumbnails can be configured on the options page.

Support For Localization

Another awesome feature that is included with the Church theme is support for localization. We have been asked numerous times if our themes can be localized, and we are going to make sure that all of them can be internationalized into different languages.

Sidebar eNews & Updates

In previous versions of the Church theme, we required the use of a text widget to display the Google/Feedburner eNews & Updates section. We felt that was a bit clunky, so we’ve now included the ability to enable/disable that section from within the dashboard, and provide a box for you to place your Feed ID.

Features :

  • Drop down category menus and page menus
  • Rotating featured article section on homepage
  • Widget ready
  • Google AdSense integration
  • Section, Archive, Blog page templates
  • Theme options panel

  1. hi with this theme is it possible to add “default thumbnail” if a person doesn’t post a ‘thumb’ it would use a default instead?

  2. Author

    hi Cherie,

    With this theme there is default option that if you don’t have any images in post and than it will shows default thumbnail which you can change to your needs as this it is in images folder.

  3. Im using the theme but have to re-arrange the sub navigation the way I want it. But it is impossible without doing some code editing which I don’t have any ideal at all. Is there any plugin to customize the sub navigation below the menu bar.
    Thanks for the help

  4. Does anyone here know how I can get more than 1 category to show on the bottom of the homepage please?

    Hey Steve,

    Didn’t get what you asking , but assuming you want to show bottom featured post from multiple categories, you try adding category number in home.php, though i have not tried this one out.

    Here what you can try,

    1. Keep backup of home.php (so that if anything goes wrong you can restore) homepagebottom div class in home.php

    find line ” $recent = new WP_Query(“cat= ”

    there is one category number (e.g cat=1&) now you can add your category number from which yo want to show.

    like ” $recent = new WP_Query(“cat=1,2&showposts=5 ” then save it and checkout if it works. I have personally not tried so try with caution.

  6. Hi,
    I intend to start anther website, but need to install a piece of script code between the and tags in the themes single post (single.php) file as I want the script to run only when viewer clicks to view a single post and not before. But I have been told that the Revolution Church theme does not have a single.php file if this is the case what file does it have that would offer the same principle.

    Hi George,

    You need to correct in index.php

    For revolution church index.php is same as single.php

  8. Thank you for this tip. I was stuck trying to find the single.php file in my studiopress education theme. I had to edit the index.php file instead 🙂

  9. I went to the studio press website and did not see this theme referenced. Can you tell me of any other place I can go to download this theme? On the copy of the theme that I do have, I get the following error message on the home page when I try to install it:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function images() in /. on line 36

    Please share your thoughts!

    Hi Erik,

    Sorry for delay but for your info, Church theme is discontinued by Brian. Regarding error you getting, it would be good if you can provide me home.php file, there are some images which may are not available at particular path or path got edited by mistake on line no. 36

  11. Hi, I have problem thit this theme, I can’t update categories when i click update option it’s not updated and still same option, I have a same problem with permalink, it’s not updated to Custom Structure : /%postname%/
    Please help me to fix this problem

    I am sorry but didn’t get what you mean by categories not updating ? You need to update the category id in home.php , if everything is ok then there try removing cache and re-look, i had faced similar problem with one of the cache plugin, homepage got stuck to old time but inner pages do get updated

    further, your website is not loading

  13. Hi admin. Thanks for fast response. I mean when i try to “Select which category you want displayed” “Number of posts to show” and other option in “Church Theme Options” and click “save changes” its not saved and all configuration steel the same option .
    Thank you

    I guess u might have edited the core files by mistake or may be corrupted due to some plugin, try to disable all plugins and also re-upload the theme files, that will solve the problem most probably.

  15. thanks for advice, i tried everything but its not working

    Rob, which version of theme you using ?? Your site is not loading at all so unable to check if there is any error. Pls share ur files if its ok as i don’t see any other error except the coding for such failure. If it is not registering the changes then likely error in functions.php which used to register theme functions into wordpress database. Make sure you don’t have any white space in functions file.

    Also have edited your stylesheet ??

  17. Admin Thank you for fast response. I testing Version 4.0 for this domain and you can see , the posts are added bout side in same category and i cant change this. i want to add right side “Fitness Tips” and left side “Fitness Info” This is a my problem.
    Thank for your help. Good luck!

    As your options are not stored in database, it won’t reflect on homepage

    Only 2 possibility for such mess
    1. > some functions no longer compatible with WP 3.5
    2. > either you have by mistake edited the files (you said u also tried with re-upload, but those files in ur hard disk may also got edited and you haven’t noticed) so try to download again, then upload again with different name

    If its ok than provide me theme so that i can check it on my pc (but this may take time as i am not having much time till Jan 12 due to personal work load)

  19. Please send me email to my email and i will send you this theme on your email.
    Thank very much for your time
    Regards Rob
