Go to the themes directory in the Wordpress installation (/wp-content/themes/)
Do a svn checkout from Google code:
svn checkout http://a2f-magazine-wordpress-theme.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ a2f-magazine
Once it's checked out, go to the plugins directory (/wp-content/plugins), and symbolic link these items:
ln -s ../themes/a2f-magazine/plugins/gp-banner
ln -s ../themes/a2f-magazine/plugins/gpevent
ln -s ../themes/a2f-magazine/plugins/gpphoto
ln -s ../themes/a2f-magazine/plugins/gpvideo
ln -s ../themes/a2f-magazine/plugins/shortcodes.php
After doing this, go into Wordpress and Activate GP Shortcoder and Gracepoint Banner Widget.
To enable the Banner, you have to go to the widgets section and add Gracepoint Banner Widget to the Header section.
In a2f-magazine/ create a new directory "php"
Go to php/ and add the following files (download the files):
Next, do a checkout of gcal php in that same directory:
svn checkout http://gcal-php-framework.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ gcal
Go into php/gcal/gcal.class.php, and edit lines 109 + 110 (
$magiccookie). This is specific to your gcal calendar — you can find yours by going to gcal → calendar settings → private address → xml:
You can tell this works by adding a public event to your Google Calendar, following these directions.
Go to Disqus and create an account.
Add a new site to your account.
Keep clicking next until you see the Wordpress option. Download the Wordpress plugin, activate it, and follow the instructions.
To export existing comments into Disqus (recommended), you should:
Login to Disqus account
Click "Export comments to Disqus" (Disqus will export current comments from Wordpress and import them into Disqus)
The following are generated for you in the plugin settings:
Disqus short name - a2friverside
Disqus API Key -
Disqus User API Key -
Get the 'forum id':
curl -0 -L "http://disqus.com/api/get_forum_list?user_api_key=[YOUR_USER_API_KEY]
Look for the "id" field corresponding to the correct site / shortname
Disqus forum_id: a number, probably around 6 or 7 digits
Put these values in disqus_val.php (Disqus Forum API Key is the Disqus API Key)
At the end, it should look something like this:
You should create categories like this:
The ones that are not important are Designs, General, Minipost.
If you're coming from the previous a2f theme, you'll want to rename:
If you're coming from another theme altogether, it's up to you if you want to follow the above naming conventions. However, the Magazine Theme is strongly associated to this, so you'll have to manually edit the theme to correspond to your categories.
