Hi again—loving this theme! It seems that the Twitter widget isn’t updating automatically—only when I click Save again in the widget admin area. Any thoughts?

SwiftIdeas

Hi Keith,

The cache is set to 10 minutes in the widget, do you have any other caching plugins enabled?

Fixed! Yep, I didn’t understand that the refresh time applied to length of time sitting on the page by the user. Thanks for being so attentive!

SwiftIdeas

No worries :)

Ed, got another for you. I’m trying to implement a jQuery plugin on a page. It works perfectly when that page is viewed alone, but the element selection breaks down when on the single-page home view. Is there some kind of loop I need to jump through to have the jQuery find elements within pages? At this point, I’m basing all my pathways on $(document), and still the same situation. Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

You will need to add the function to the /js/functions.js.php file, and call the function within the portfolio.loadItem function. This is where the item is loaded via AJAX, and when a page is loaded via AJAX, jQuery is not run on the page that has been loaded. You therefore need to run the function once the item has loaded.

If you log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com then we will happily help you out with this.

Ed and I straightened it out. For anyone working with jQuery, here’s an important tidbit for Ability homepage functionality:

Hi,

Very nice theme indeed! I have a few questions:

1) Is there a way (like custom CSS for example) of removing the comment section on a blog page? I am using the blog to post current news, which I don’t want comments on, and don’t want any of it shown.

2) Advanced question: ;) If I’d like to use the dual blog pages possibility – can I turn off comments on only one of them? (To be able to have an ordinary blog and use the other for the news info)

3) Is there a better way to turn off showing “date”, “author” and “comments” in a blog post than removing them from the code in blog-post-meta.php?

Best Regards, Michaela

SwiftIdeas

Hi Michaela, glad you like it :)

1) Sure, add the following css to the custom css box within theme options, and also disable comments on the post.

.item-details .meta span { display: none; }
.item-details .meta span.date { display: block; }
.detail-info .comments { display: none; }

2. Hmm.. That would require quite a lot of custom config. Possible, but a lot of work!

3. The following css:

.detail-info .comments, .detail-info .date, .detail-info .author { display: none; }

Hi again!

Now I seem to have a problem with the Social Profiles, when i type in the LinkedIn-address, the LinkedIn symbol shows up fine, but the link / clickable link is wrong, it looks like this http://www.marieparkershaw.se/www.se.linkedin.com/in/marieparkershaw/ and i have tried to change & update and remove altogether & update and then replace again. This is what I try to fill in: www.se.linkedin.com/in/marieparkershaw/

Thank you in advance!

SwiftIdeas

Make sure you add http:// at the start of the URL.

Thought i tried that! But LinkedIn has no www, just http:// Thank you very much!

Hi! Another Question from me. :) I can’t seem to get the Google Analytics Tracking code working. I think it has been working before (?) (2 visitors), but somehow now it says it’s not installed. I’ve tried to re-paste it from analytics, but nu sucess. Any idea what to do?

SwiftIdeas

If you copy from analytics, then you’ll need to remove the script tag at the top and bottom of the code.

Hope that helps :)

Is there a theme data demo pack that I can upload that already has the home page setup?

SwiftIdeas

Sure, here is the XML file – http://d.pr/f/sW3R

- Ed

Default-user

Thank you. Where can I upload this at?

I’m having trouble laying out the home page. I cannot get any of thew features to display. I tried following the read me file, but it appears that I have everything turned on, yet all I can get is for my recent posts to show, or a static page. I cannot get the blog, showcase, portfolio, etc to show.

Thanks in advance.

SwiftIdeas

Hi KW,

You can upload this at Tools > Import > WordPress.

You want to set the page that you’ve created using the Home (One Page) Template, and set that as the front page displays in Settings > Reading.

Hope that helps.

Hey I wanna buy this theme but I have one question. Is it possible to put the Google Map on the full width on the page instead a little corner?

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Yes, that could be done :)

Default-user

Thanks Ed. What a SUPPORT! :) I have another question, is it possible to make a custom (image) background for each section/page? Thanks a lot! :)

You could do it, but you would need to manually do this through the css.

Anytime :)

In single page view, is it possible to remove the large images when viewing individual portfolio items. so that when portfolio thumbs are selected it just displays the portfolio text?

SwiftIdeas

Sure, add the following css to the custom css box within theme options:

.container figure.fourteen.columns.portfolio-display { display: none!important; }
article.type-portfolio { padding: 20px 0; }

Thanks for swift response, but I’m not seeing any change with that code. Maybe I explained badly – I’d like to not display any gallery items when a portfolio thumb is selected, just text.

Make sure you unzip the main file that you download, then within that you will find “ability.zip”. That is the file you want to upload.

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

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

Theme install failed.

Hi there,

Make sure you’ve unzipped the main download zip, as there is a file inside named “ability.zip” which is what you need to upload.

Hi,

I’m having problems with this theme. Today, while I was trying to upload a new logo for the header, the site suddenly reverted back to default theme options, and every time I try to change it back, when I save it says, “Options Reset”, and when I try to upload a new logo, I get a “Cheatin’, uh?” dialog.

My site is http://www.bluedeltajeans.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Please update to the latest version of Ability, by downloading it again from your Downloads panel. We have fixed that issue.

Can I change the font throughout the site to be Verdana (including page titles) and reduce the size of the page titles?

SwiftIdeas

Sure, add the following css to the custom css box within theme options:

body, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, #tagline {font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;}
.section-heading h1 { font-size: 24px; }

Thanks and thanks again. I seem to be experiencing an issue with the portfolio where it doesn’t like 5, 8 items etc, so it pushes the 4th item to the end of the second row and it places the 5th on third row. Thought it might be a Firefox thing, but seeing the same in Chrome.

Fixed it by resizing a featured image, but not sure exactly how.

This will happen if the image isn’t large enough. Glad you sorted it.

Sticky posts don’t appear to be behaving as sticky. Is there something I need to adjust?

SwiftIdeas

In template-blog.php and template-home.php search for:

'ignore_sticky_posts'=> 1

and change the 1 to a 0. That will fix it :)

Thanks – and one more – can “read more” be implemented in the blog posts?

You could add a text link manually if you like to the template files, however the headline is there for the link :)

First of all, thank you for the theme, it is amazing.

I just have a “small” problem, i want my portfolio page to show my shop brands (just like the image attached), and when you click on them, it opens an external website (i use the plugin “page links to”) it usually does the trick, but now, when i click an image it just freezes, i think because it tries to open the gallery, is there a work around?

Thank you in advance

In /includes/portfolio-index-item.php remove:

class="link" 

from the a tag. That will change it to work the way you want.

Hi Ed- This theme is what I have been looking for for ages. I love it. I’m really looking forward to customizing it a bit, but first, I have a question.

I installed Wordpress 3.5 with one-click, then I used Import to import your XML. Now when I go to edit the pages, I see nothing in the fields that should have all the page content… Did I do something wrong?

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

If you didn’t get any errors when uploading then it should all be fine. Most of the page options are in Theme Options though, have you checked there? The documentation provided covers the setup process if you need clarification on that.

I’m almost finished, just a few details now:

1- The blue bar bellow the header, van i make it thinner? 2- Remove the italic from the taglines 3- Can i control the spacing between the content and the navigation arrow that takes me to the top? 4- Remove comments from the blog posts 5- When i post a video in posts, is there any way for it to auto-fetch a thumbnail or do i need to add it in the featured image area?

Thank you in advance, i think i can easly make some changes if i play around with the code a little, but i am afraid to ruin something, so if you have some codes i can add to custom css it would be great.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there!

1 – Use the following custom css:

#header-section {border-top-width: 5px;}

2 – This css:

.section-heading span.section-desc { font-style: normal; }

3 – This css:

.divider { margin-top: 25px; }

4 – You can remove them in the screen options of the post, or Settings > Discussion.

5 – You need to add an image.

Hope that helps :)

Once again everything worked great, but when i make the bar in the header thinner, i get a gap between the header and the showcase slider, is there a way to fix it?

Sure, you’ll need to edit this value:

#content { padding-top: 105px; }

Hi there,

Looking like a great theme to work with! thank you. I am customizing it a fair bit… I have a Vimeo video placed in the showcase on the homepage slider. It resizes according to the browser window size. However, I would like it to scale to a maximum set size and not 100% width, so that I can have a white border all around the video. Where is the best place to manually set the size of the home slider (flexslider) and the video container? many thanks:)

SwiftIdeas

I think what you want to do is set a margin on the following:

.home-slider-wrap { margin: 20px 20% 0; }

You can place that within the custom css box within theme options.

Hope that helps.

Yes, that works perfectly! thank you. One more thing if you can advise me… is there a way to fix the navigation menu at the top of the screen on mobile devices, as it does when viewed in a browser? at the mo an instance of the menu appears down the screen above each new page section. I’d like to remove this, and just have the menu once fixed at the top of mobiles. Any way of doing this within this theme at at all? many thanks again, great support:)

SwiftIdeas

Sure, just use the following custom css:

nav.section-nav { display: none!important; }

Hi Ed,

sorry to be asking yet another question… I have searched through all the theme files, and I cannot find a file to change text strings, apart from theme-options.php but this is an admin file. I would like to change the section headings and section descriptions. ie. ‘ab_portfolio_title_str’ and ‘ab_portfolio_tag_str’ as I have a menu item called Projects, this is using the Portfolio template, and this page heading reads Portfolio instead of matching my menu name of Projects. Same applies to the section descriptions. I can hardcode into the template-portfolio.php but is there an alternative. I’m sure I am missing something but I cannot figure out what! thanx yet again!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

You can find these in Theme Options > Translation.

Hello! I love your theme. I have a few questions before I buy it. I need to customize a Wordpress theme for a music band. 1. Is it possible to play audio-files? If not using a widget? 2. Is it possible to implement a YouTube Video on the landing page? Thanks a lot! Anna

SwiftIdeas

Hi there, thanks for the kind words :)

1 – You can have self hosted audio in the blog, see – http://themes.swiftpsd.com/ability/post/self-hosted-audio/

2 – Yes, you can either put a video in the showcase, or you could create a page and embed a video on there then display it on the one page template.

Hope that helps!

penguin_race

Thanks a lot. It helped :-) I will buy the theme.

Another Question:

Is it possible to change the background color? Or is it fixed with the light and dark theme? It would be perfect for me to have a light purple.

SwiftIdeas

Sure, you can change it manually if you like – we have just prepared it for use with two skins. You’re free to manually change the colours in the skin css to suit your needs.

- Ed

penguin_race

Cool. Now I tried it, but unfortunately it didn’t work. In the section: Design > Theme Options > Styling Options > Custom CSS, I wrote the phrase: background-color:#d1c6cc; What I’m doing wrong?

Should be:

body {
background-color:#d1c6cc;

one more question concerning the audio player: is there a way to implement the self-hosted-audio-player seperately from the blog-page? I need 3 diffrent audio files played on a single site page. thanks again for your quick and helpfull support.

SwiftIdeas

Unfortunately not. You could however create the blog posts and then link to them as if they were a page?

- Ed

penguin_race

Ah to bad. I’m making a page for a music band, were I need in a very direct way audio samples of their music. I tried to solve this by installing an audio player plugin- but for some reason this doesn’t work either. The installation is fine, the plugin working, but the music doesn’t start. Do you know why?

SwiftIdeas

I’d need to take a look. Log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com with a link and I’ll take a look when I can.
