hi again, I just ran into another issue that I didn’t notice before. I’ve added some content under the menu, but I can’t see it on the IPad because the left side doesn’t scroll. How can I let this side scroll along with the right, or independently if that is easier.

Hi,

We choose to don’t make the sidebar scrollable, because it makes the look and feel of the theme much less simple. But if you want to change that, it’s quite simple to make the sidebar scroll with a child theme. That doesn’t mean that it will look very good in every browser, though.

Do you know how to use child themes? There is a brief description in the plattan-documentation and a more complete one in the WordPress codex (https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes).

I’ve created a minimal child-theme, which you can download here:

http://northemes.com/assets/downloads/plattan-child-140723.zip

The only file it includes, is a style.css file which overrides some color css-rules of the parent theme, you can remove these rules and add this one instead:

.sidebar-header { overflow: auto; }

If you need further assistance, just give us a note.

All the best

Hi Northemes crew.

Super good job – loving the template so far.

I should have approached you earlier about this, however i figure its better late than never.

I discovered a ‘bug’ if you like where the page shakes and repositions itself upon load/refresh. The issue occurs just in chrome (yet to test in firefox) and i know it may be a small issue but i figured its a good one to tackle..

Investigating the how and why, i found out that the shaking occurs when the content section has no space to move after its animated itself in. When there is some padding at the bottom and the window is scrollable the content window can animate and then hold its place.

Thanks a bunch.

Adrian.

Hi,

thanks for your kind words about the theme and for letting us know about the bug. We will try to replicate the issue and uploading a fix as soon as possible.

All the best

I, too, have experienced the issue described by Adrian above, or at least something similar to it.

Again, I love the theme. There’s nothing else out there quite like it. However, I’d like to see widget support added in to a future version of it. Thanks.

Hi,

appreciate your kind words about the theme. We will try to replicate the bug and fix it as soon as possible.

Widget support is the very next feature we would want to add, but we haven’t found a way yet to do it without offering the simplicity of the theme.

Widgets in the left sidebar require us to make it scroll, but a scrollbar there just don’t looks good, there are some issues in mobile views as well.

Another way is to add a widget area to posts, that’s quite easy, but most users want to have widgets on the start page, which doesn’t work with this solution.

The last possibility we are considering is a fly-in sidebar from the right, but it just don’t feels not as clean as it does now.

So, every input is welcome, where would you want to add widgets?

Thanks

Hello, I wonder how do I insert in my post-type post, both the twitter icon, as a citation appears unformatted as the model available here in the live preview of the theme forest.

appears just the quotes without any formatting and without the colored background.

thank you

northemes

Hi,

the quote-formatting appears when you choose a post to have the post-format ‘quote’. Here a link where you can see how to change it:

Hi.

I have just bought the theme and noticed the following issues. You can also view them if you simply open your own plattan-wp demo site.

1) If you open http://plattan-wp.northemes.com in IE10, the twitter icon and quote icons in the posts listing are much larger (and look bad) compared to the other browsers like Chrome

2) I am also experiencing the “shaking movement” of the left sidebar when scrolling using chrome (v36). It does not do this with IE.What I have noticed is that if you scroll using the scroller on the mouse, then the left sidebar shakes. But if you scroll by using the scrollbar on the browser, then the shaking does not occur. I hope this helps a bit more.

Then,

3) Is it possible to display the full post in the blog posts listing, instead of the standard summary with the “Read more >> ” link? \ EDIT: Nevermind, I saw an older question that showed how to do this. This would be a nice option to include on the theme though!

(I just change <?php the_excerpt(); ?> code with <?php the_content(); ?> on the loop.php file and this solve my problem.)

Thanks.

Hi there,

I love the theme and I have forked it a bit to change the styling.

I am wondering how to create new, custom post types? I’d love to make post types for certain types of things I blog about, beyond just a status, post, or link. Is this possible?

Thanks,

northemes

Hi,

sorry missed your message. I’m not quite sure if you perhaps mean post-formats, not types? With some work and a bit knowledge in php and css you can easily add more formats, but we are supporting just these three.

A good starting point and a list of possible post-formats you find here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Formats

All the best
