I’ve been having some trouble: I’ve created a page named “side projects” with page template “blog” but the page doesn’t behave like the other blogpage i’ve used. I’ve created a menu item and when I click it, it doesnt scroll to it, but ovens a new page.
Also I want to give my pages other names than predefined, does this cause any trouble later on?
Please check the documentation on how to set up the menu. You need to add a title attribute to the menu item. For Blog it would be:
You can name the pages as you like.
Hope that helps.
That helps a bit. I’ve used the pagetemplate “blog” twice. Does that cause a problem?
Also: I’ve named my page “Sideprojects” and the menu item too, but it still shows up as “blog” when published.
The theme only supports on blog instance. You can change the heading in Theme Options > Translation.
(sorry, i’m so frustrated, keep running in to problems, thought I was less of a newbie) are there any page templates that you can use more than once? My site keeps flipping out!
You can use the default page template or full width page template more than once
Ok, I got most things sorted now, thank you so much for that, but one last question. Because I have to use the title attribute to let te pages behave correctly, incorrect information show up in the tooltip (for instance: “portfolio” when I hover over my “music and video” menu item.) How can i fix this? It looks weird and I suppose it’s not too good for my SEO!
Unfortunately that isn’t changeable as standard, you’d need to edit the template-home.php and change the portfolio wrap ID. This won’t affect your SEO, as the actual page will exist as music and video.
Hi, thanks for a great theme, I am loving it so far.
One question – can I make the slider on the Home page smaller? How can I do this?
Thank you very much.
Glad you’re enjoying it – you’re welcome!
Do you want to reduce the height, or the whole slider?
i try to use Facebook Page Photo Gallery the plugin it is working but it doesn’t show the prettyphoto popup, it open the picture in a new page, if i don’t use the menu attribute so i use normal pages without effect it is working, have any idea? thanks a lot
What page are you trying to use it on? It won’t work on the one page setup as the sections are loaded in via AJAX.
How i can make it work in ajax page? any suggestion? thanks in advance
You’d need to copy the JS that runs the plugin into the callback for the ajax page loading. If you’re not comfortable with JS then I’d recommend hiring a freelancer.
GREAT theme! Love it!
Just a quick Q: where can i change the page title of Portfolio and the tagline “A selection of our client work, and internal experiments.”. i need it to say something else.
You can change this in Appearance > Theme Options > Translation.
Glad you like it
thank you so much!
Hi, I’ve bought and uploaded the wordpress ability theme. I’m having trouble getting my pages to work, I’m trying to put my page attributes in correctly and have the correct pages.
I would like the slider at the top, then about us part, then the portfolio then the contact us page. All working as a one page site.
It seems when I edit my pages or change the order on the menu or something, all the disable and enable sections in the Themes Layout Manager disappears and so does everything on the site except the menu on the top and the logo. I don’t what i’m missing for this website to work how its meant to be… please help i’ve read the instructions heaps and don’t know what i’m missing.
How did you install WordPress, was it via an auto installer? If so, please re-install setting up the database, as this is likely the issue.
Hi there…absolutely love the theme!
Just a quick question…I’d like to keep the width of the showcase the same but would like to reduce the height…which is the best way to do this.?
Sure, just add the following to the custom css box within theme options and then adjust it:
Hi. Quick question. Is there any way to reorganize portfolio items once they are all created. I’m not interested in using tags. I’m just interested in having the same portfolio item appear first. However, whenever I create a new item it becomes the first one. Meaning I have to recreate the old one to have it appear it first in the list again. Hopefully that made sense haha. Thanks.
You could use the Post Types Order plugin, or just change the published date in each item.
I purchased the WordPress version, and am now considering switching to HTML to take advantage of “free” hosting through Creative Cloud. I seem to recall there being an HTML version of ability, but I can’t find it anymore. Did this ever exist or am I just imagining…?
Yes, there was a HTML version, but we discontinued it a few months back.
is there any way it could be made available again? and if not, would an html web crawler be able to pick up the ajax code properly?
We still have the HTML files, but its no longer maintained. Not sure what you mean by your second question?
Hi Ed, it’s okay that it’s no longer maintained, just having the starting point would save me the trouble of scrubbing through all the php. Would it be possible to get the HTML files from you?
Sure, send us an email – http://themeforest.net/user/SwiftIdeas
i can close each one, and open the next and it will load. but moving the arrows to allow for quick browsing isn’t working. any fix for this?
also, for the portfolio page, is there any way i can add share options ?
Could you send me an email with a login so that I can test out a fix for this? http://themeforest.net/user/SwiftIdeas
Unfortunately no option for share options as default.
sent. thank you!
Hi Ed I cant seem to log-in on Swift-Ideas Support so I’l ask the question here.
Is there a way I can change the portfolio showcase order, at the moment its by date , I would like it to be alphabetical
That would require a code change, your best bet would be to use the Post Types Order plugin to re-arrange them with drag and drop.
Thank you I’l try that otherwise I’l just play around with the code in my child theme.
Thanks that plugin works

Hi Ed. I’ve read so many of the posts on here hoping I would see my problem. It’s so small. I want to turn off the one page option but keep the showcase on the one page I want to designate as the home page. In the theme settings I disabled all the pages and I have my Home page as the home page template but it still won’t show up when I open the site.
Do you have the page set as the front page in Settings > Reading?
Hi, I was viewing the preview on mobile devices (iPhone and iPad) and I noticed the links in the header did not work. It was possible to view the page content by scrolling but the links did not jump to the relative section on the page. If I purchase this theme can I make sure that they will work on touch screens? Thank you
Tested here, and works fine. Can you confirm? Try closing the ThemeForest frame?
I currently have v. 1.6 of this theme. I want to update but although I used the Custom CSS section, I’m pretty sure there’s some minor structural changes somewhere.
In short, what files were changes in this new version (v 1.9) so I can be really careful to update?
Most of the files were updated. If you download the latest version from ThemeForest, you will be able to see the modified files timestamps.
I would like to place the social icons just above the footer and code them into the footer template. What code would I use for this?
You could use the following code:
<?php do_shortcode('[social]'); ?>
it works on wp3.6?
Works fine, our demo is running 3.6
Hi! I can’t seem log in to the support either – or recover my password.
I have had my website www.marieparkershaw.se up and running for a long time now, and suddenly my twitterfeed-widget in the footer doesn’t load the tweets anymore. I have tried to make a new feed or using another twitteraccount or ”@marieparkershaw” instead of “marieparkershaw” – but nothing helps. Is it maybe a bug in the theme? Or can you please advice on what I need to do?

PS. We have the newest version of Wordpress, 3.6
The Twitter API has been updated, so you’d be best off using the following method of showing your feed – https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines
Hello Dear Swiftideas, we encounter an issue with embedded vimeo in showcase slider – the video is not fullscreen, shows two black side blocks. Any tips how to solve it? Thank you very much for reply.
Hi! Is this theme compatible with WP 3.6?
If NOT, when will the update be released?
Yes, it’s compatible!
Hi guys love the theme. Got 2 questions.
I would like the slider to show 3 slides with the active one in the middle. 960×600 and on the left and right part of the previous and next slide. Can you help me set this up?
Also i experience a delay when scrolling down. It has kind of troubles. hangs a bit. Any idea where that is comming from?
Cheers and keep up the good work!
Hi there, glad you like it!
1) This isn’t possible as standard, you’d need to make some custom changes for this. Would be too big a task for us to help you out on it.
2) Can you log a support topic and provide a link, we’ll happily check it out.
