How To: Display YouTube Videos Full Screen

In order to link to a YouTube video that fills the entire window (as is needed is some of our themes, like Faded), simply follow these instructions.

1. Browse to the YouTube video you want to use

2. Copy the URL in the address bar

3. Change the “watch?v=” to just “embed”

Tutorial: Correctly setting up Permalinks

Permalinks in WordPress control the link that is displayed in the browser bar.

It can either be pretty for example http://www.mintthemes.com/pretty-url or something not so pretty like http://www.mintthemes.com/?p=4343834 which isn’t great for visitors as its not memorable and doesn’t tell the visitor what content is shown on the page or search engines.

We would recommend setting up your Mint Themes WordPress Permalinks the following way.

1. Log into you’re WordPress backend usually www.domain.com/wp-admin
2. Go to the Settings tab in the WordPress backend and then click on “Permalinks”
3. You will see a field called “Custom Structure” delete what is in the box if there currently is anything.
4. Type the following into the box: /%postname%/
5. Click “Save Changes”

This will now allow your URL’s to be pretty and much more memorable for visitors, below is a screen shot of how it should look.

Mint Themes Launch!

We are excited to announce that we are launching a new, high quality collection of WordPress themes called “Mint Themes”. We have been working hard in the lab putting together themes built for specific purposes like Churches, Bands, and Businesses. They are built to give you a head start on building your next project.

The Themes.

The designs are professional and pixel-perfect and the functionality is powerful but also easy to use. We are also here to offer support for getting the theme set up the way it’s supposed to be so if you run into trouble you can always give us a shout. We are always building and upgrading these themes and all updates come free forever with each theme.

The Cost.

Each theme costs $79 and you get the full PSD (PhotoShop File) with it. This way you can customize the theme quickly and easily. You also get full support with getting the theme set up the way it was meant to be.

Who We Are.

We are professional designers and coders with tons of web-creation and WordPress experience. After years of client and freelance web work, we (Adam and Phil) have combined forces to start creating the next generation of themes for WordPress and plan on offering the absolute best, most useful, and great looking themes on the market for a long time to come.
