Ed- a final question. In the Setting Up chapter I came across the Pages part, where it says you set up a page using templates. I’m probably not looking in the right place but I can’t seem to find the templates. Where do I find these and how do I use them? Thanks again, Mandy

SwiftIdeas

When you create a page, you can find the page templates under the page attributes box on the right.

Hope that helps.

I have a question about google analytics. I added tracking code in Tracking Code text box of General Options.

like <script type=”text/javascript”> ~~ ~~ </script>

But google analytics says “Tracking code has not been set”. Is something wrong?

SwiftIdeas

You don’t need to add the script tags, just add the code in-between :)

How do you create a homepage slider of images from the media library?

I’m guessing this should be a simple task, but it’s eluding me!

SwiftIdeas

In the showcase option from the left WordPress admin menu, you need to create a slide for each image. You then set the featured image for the item, and that will be the slide’s image.

How can increase the size of the portfolio thumbnail so that it spans the width of the container for example?

Also is there a way of centering the gallery thumbnails instead of them being aligned towards the left?

Hi Ed, hope your well.

Ive still not updated my wordpress to 3.4.2 yet as i didnt want it to balls up my site. I also noticed your on version 1.7 too.

As we did loads of tweaks and special coding what will happen if i wanted to update both or just one of the above??

Plus whats the benefits of your ability 1.7 too??

Cheers Ed ;)

SwiftIdeas

All good thanks, hope you’re well too!

If you go to WordPress 3.4 then you’re going to want to update at least the /admin directory from v1.7 to fix an issue with the theme options. Apart from that you can check the change log from the bottom of the item page.

So do i just upload the full ‘admin’ folder from the new 1.7 zip file to my ftp over the old one?

Do i do this before or after i update to 3.4.2 fella??

Ricky

SwiftIdeas

Yes that’s correct (back it up before hand just incase).

Update the admin folder then update to 3.4.2.

Another quick one Ed but this maybe a little harder ;)

I use a plugin called Twitter tools which pulls in my tweets and changes them into blog post.

I does do this but when it converts them the format it gives each post is ‘STATUS’ as its my twitter status. You formats integrated in your theme include ‘STANDARD’ – ‘GALLERY’ – etc etc.

Is there anyway you could include ‘STATUS’ as a format so my post are seen automatically? If i edit each post and manually change each one to say ‘standard’ or gallery’ then they show up fine but doing automatically would be great ;)

cheers in advance fella. Ricky

SwiftIdeas

Sure!

In functions.php change line 78 from

add_theme_support( 'post-formats', array( 'aside', 'audio', 'gallery', 'image', 'link', 'quote', 'video' ) );

to

add_theme_support( 'post-formats', array( 'aside', 'audio', 'gallery', 'image', 'link', 'quote', 'video', 'status' ) );

- Ed

Default-user

cheers for this ed, it worked as in that it has now added ‘status’ to the choice of formats you can choose from when your editing or creating a post but the post which the been generated from the twitter tools still dont automatically appear on my site ;(

Again once i change it manually to something else they appear on my site?

Any more ideas? Do i need to add some more text else where???

Cheers bud ;)

SwiftIdeas

Are you entering the tweets with https:// or http:// ?

What do you mean by manually change it to something else?

- Ed

Default-user

Most of my tweets come through my iphone or the twitter client on my mac but its the same if i post through the twitter site which is https://

By manually change i mean, the post appear in the post section of my admin site and then if i click on the post and edit it in my admin section and change the format to gallery for example and update it, it then appears on my main website.

Hope that helps fella ;)

I just purchased your theme and when I upload it within Wordpress, it says:

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

What seems to be the problem?

SwiftIdeas

Make sure you’ve extracted the main zip file, and that you’re uploading “ability.zip”

Thank you for the prompt and helpful response, Ed. That worked. You’re great.

Yes – I am not a programer and I’m trying to set up my site..I’m having a challenging time getting the pages set-up correctly. For some reason, the templates are not active (ie. Portfolio, Blog, About, etc), even though I made them “Enabled” and created custom pages for each of them..I’m sure there is a easy solution to this, but I’m just not sure what I’m missing..

Hi,

I’m sure it should be very easy but I’m struggling taking off the sentence “Ability is an incredibly powerful theme, built upon a slick framework with a super clean & responsive design.” from my home page. Could you please tell me how?

Thanks. Zen

Hi Zen,

You can change the tagline within the Theme Options :)

Hi Ed,

Is there a way to put an optin form just under the showcase without borders? Where do I have to paste it?

Thanks, Zen

SwiftIdeas

You’d have to add it in manually on line 105 of template-home.php

Is it possible to add thumbnails to the slider?

SwiftIdeas

Not as standard, you’d likely have to use a beta version of Flexslider.

Thanks, isn’t it possible to use the FlexSlider 2 w/thumbnail slider?

Sure, that’s what I was suggesting :).. You could try setting that up and seeing how you go :)

I have the same problem as Zanshin 7 months ago in page 3. I used Cpanel in setting up the database and did’t use fantastico in installing Wordpress. Do you have a sample XML that I can import?

Is there a way to add a YouTube video on a portfolio item that already has images in the gallery? Or is it one or the other?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

It’s only 1 or the other at the moment.

- Ed

Default-user

Ok, thank you Ed.

Another question.

It doesn’t seem like the filters on the portfolio are working 100% correctly. I have at least 1 portfolio item for each filter but some filters come up with no results. You can view the page here. http://jhdesignunlimited.com/3i/

Thanks

Hello,

I just came across your theme and I am very much impressed!! Looks great. We are thinking of implementing a onepage, responsive theme such as yours, however I have the following questions:

1-Is it possible to add custom CSS to the theme? 2-Can plugins be used with the theme? 3-Can I find or get some printscreens of the customization settings menus—> that will give me a good impression of the theme options, in order to be better able to evaluate if it is the right choice for our website!

Thank you very much in advance,

Kind Regards,

Jeroen

SwiftIdeas

Hi Jeroen,

Glad you like it!

1 – Yes, there is a custom css box within the theme options that you can add to. 2 – Yes, plugins can be used with the theme. 3 – Sure! You can see screenshots here – http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/1929337-ability-responsive-one-page-ajax-wordpress-theme

Hope that helps :)
