== Basic FAQ ==
Q: Where did the Stanzas go?
Although the Stanzas were meant as examples how to extend Opus Primus they were
too close to "plugin territory" to remain as part of the theme proper.

Pleas see the follow links for future references for the Stanzas:
* "TagLines" Stanza: https://github.com/Cais/opus-primus-taglines-stanza

Q: I just updated to version 1.3, what could be causing these child-theme errors?
With version 1.3 of Opus Primus the calls to the classes were changed from using
`require_once` to `locate_template`. This then followed files being updated from
calling the class global variable to creating a "new" class instance as needed.
This is expected to provide better child-theme compatibility going forward and
only be a one-time correction for existing child-themes.

Q: What is the difference between how the "Featured Image" is used on a post and
how it is used on a page?
The "Featured Image" on a page is set to ideally be used as a "banner" on pages;
and, to add emphasis for posts when they are viewed as part of a list, such as
the index view or in archives.

Q: How do the breadcrumb trails work?
There are two different breadcrumb trails used in Opus Primus. One type is used
on pages and shows the page hierarchy from the highest level to the lowest. The
second trail is used on single views of posts and shows the first category and
Post-Format of the post, both linked to their respective archive.

Q: Where are the menu locations, and how are they used?
There are three menu locations defined in Opus Primus.
* The Primary Menu, located at the top of the page above the main content area.
* The Secondary Menu, no location is set by default; the menu has been pre-
defined for uses as the case may be, for example, page templates or Child-Themes
* The Search Results Menu, located at the bottom of the content area when there
are no search results returned, especially in the case of a "404" error be sent.

Q: Is Opus Primus designed to be responsive to multiple screen sizes?
In a word, no. Although the theme does include some minimal CSS specifically
geared towards being responsive to multiple screen sizes the ideal method we
recommend at this time is to take advantage of one of the many quality plugins
available from the WordPress Extend Plugins repository to handle these requests.
Please note, we intend to continue in our efforts to provide an inclusive method
of managing these requests in future versions.

Q: How do I modify an existing function from one of the classes?
Most WordPress functions included with the theme will have their own filter,
otherwise it would be recommended to extend the class and overload the theme
function you are trying to modify.

Q: How does Opus Primus automatically handle multiple column layouts?
Through some CSS trickery and code logic Opus Primus will display by default
one, two, or three columns depending on which sidebar widget areas are active.
There are four(4) widget areas built into two sidebar areas.

The following will show how, if active, they affect the layout:
- Full Page (one-column): no active sidebar widget areas
- Two-Column: widget areas active in only one sidebar area
- Three-Column: at least one widget area active in each sidebar area

Q: What happened to the LESS components of the theme?
The LESS components of the theme were effectively removed at version 1.2 as a
means to improve load time. The styles that were generated by the LESS script
and related file were compiled and merged into the main theme stylesheet.

== Notes ==
1. $content_width is set based on how many columns being used and the common
display size of 1024px * 768px.

This being the case, the following widths will be used:
- one-column: 990px
- two-column: 700px
- three-column: 450px

2. Default Menu depth levels may be of concern in some cases. As it stands, the
default menus are not restricted to any specific depth except the Search Results
Menu which is restricted to a single level only when a custom menu is not used.

3. Future revisions of the 'theme-version-guidelines.txt' file may not
necessarily be recorded in the changelog. The "Theme Version Guidelines" page
found at http://opusprimus.com/under-the-page/theme-version-guidelines/ will
be considered the most current at all times. The version of the guidelines
included with the theme will simply be a copy of the noted page.
