Hi there!

LOVE the theme! I’m having trouble finding the shortcodes (like “columns” and “clients”) you offer on the theme page. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks for your beauty!

SwiftIdeas

Hey :)

You can enter shortcodes using the shortcode manager within the wysiwyg editor for post content, or you can reference them in the documentation.

You’re welcome!

Hi Ed. If I update the template I won’t lose all my settings,right? The backup is just a cautionary thing but I won’t have to reconfigue my blog, this is correct? thanks.

SwiftIdeas

Don’t worry you won’t lose anything. The update only updates functionality and doesn’t affect content :)

Hi Ed, I am in the process of setting up my menus for the theme. I am trying to set up my pages but the only templates available to me when setting up my pages are the Home template and the sample page template. The Contact, portfolio, and blog pages are not available in the drop down. Any Ideas? Much appreciated.

Ed,

It says I have to make A page using the Home template. A page using the Contact template. A page using the Portfolio template. A page using the Blog template.

Do i create those templates myself? Because they are not available to me when I am creating the menu. It only gives me the option of Home and sample page. (sorry I am new to all this).

If i have to create them what steps do I take?

Thanks

SwiftIdeas

What you need to do is go to the Pages section within WordPress, and Add a new page for each of those sections.

Within the page creator, it lets you select a page template from the menu on the right.

Hope that helps! :)

Hi Ed, I’m very interesting by your template, but before to buy it, I want to know if it is possible to have multiple images per project in the portfolio ? if not, is it easy to custom it ? Thanks

SwiftIdeas

Hi PolB,

Yes it is possible, if you attach multiple images then they display in a sliding gallery :)

Hey Ed! Hate to be a pest, but I upgraded to 1.4 and while it did fix the Google Font issue with the main font, I now cannot customize the tagline font. I have it enabled, and I haven’t messed with the core files except to make the vimeo player show the title and byline.

SwiftIdeas

I’ll look into the issue, thanks for letting me know.

If you want to send me a login I’ll fix it now rather than you having waiting for the update (support@swiftpsd.com).

Quick question, can you disable the slider. I would like to use this as a more simple portfolio site, with the portfolio gallery being the first thing you come to when you go to the site?

Cheers, Randy

SwiftIdeas

Sure, you can disable the slider through the theme options :), and set the portfolio gallery to be the top most section.

Ed- I’m having some trouble configuring. Ive set up my menu but can’t get it to appear on my homepage. Also I can’t get the showcase slides to showup. is there an “users manual” of sorts I can refer to? d

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Thanks for the purchase!

Yes, if you download the main zip then you’ll find the documentation folder. Let me know if you need any help.

Hi Ed,

Just to reiterate everyone else’s comments. Excellent theme and excellent support.

My site is there apart from one issue – am trying to change the code so I can add the music player onto the main homepage (as well as on blog posts) into a section called ‘music’ but though I can get it to appear there – haven’t managed to get it working yet, I imagine it is something to do with the ajax… Understand this is not part of the theme as such but if you could give any pointers would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards Richard http://www.thebadheads.com/cms
SwiftIdeas

Hi Richard,

Thanks :)

You can add the audio player anywhere you like, as long as it’s not on a page that is AJAX ’d in on the homepage. Putting it within the home section, or within blog posts will work fine.

Hello, Ed! The site is beautiful, and for the most part everything has been working very easily.

I’ve had just one strange problem: for the “Persons” shortcode, only the first word of a person’s name and role are showing up. So if I typed their name as “First Last” and their role as “Project Manager,” on the actual site, their name will show up as “First” and their role as “Project.” The detail text works fine. How do I solve this?

Thanks, Ed!

SwiftIdeas

Thanks :)

Send me the shortcode code that you are using so I can take a look to – support@swiftpsd.com

Thank you for being so prompt and generally awesome!

Just wondering if you could shoot me a tip on creating a portfolio item that could link to a gallery within my site?

I want to have a single image that links to a gallery of photos on my home page in the portfolio section. For instance, I want to have one photo of a logo in the portfolio, and then have it lead to a photo gallery of the rest of the branding work for that company :) My site is http://kristinaplummer.com

Hope this makes sense! Thank you for all your beautiful work!

SwiftIdeas

You’re welcome :)

Sure, all you need to do is upload more than one image to that post. If there is more than one then it will use all the images to make a gallery :)

Hope that helps!

Hi there, can i ask you a few questions.

Firstly i love your stuff fella and im almost 100% certain this is the word press for me. Im a designer so the look and feel will be the easy part for me to change but ive never used a wordpress theme before so its going to be a new experience for me.

A big part of me going for your theme is your theme options, from what i can see yours looks very easy to change the logo and the content through this. Can you tell me have you wrote a full cms system for this to happen or will every theme thats on here have the same theme options – is it standard i suppose is what im saying? Yours has a tab on the left where you view the options but i cant see this on most of the others??

Thanks in advance!! Ricky

SwiftIdeas

Hi Ricky,

Thanks for the kind words. Getting to grips with WordPress isn’t as hard as it looks, and I’ll be happy to lend a hand where needed :)

The theme options I use is built from the OptionTree framework, something that is pretty much a standard here on ThemeForest. There are various version of it, and other frameworks, but this is the best one I’ve used.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the quick reply fella, glad to here its quite easy ;)

So your saying your framework is an adaptation of the OptionTree framework then, yes? So all of the other themes should have this frame work option tree where i can easily change the logo and the fonts and portfolio content etc. The reason is my girlfriend has seen a very basic theme for her website which isnt from yourself and im hoping that will be just as easy to change like yours will ;)

Thanks again.

SwiftIdeas

Yes :)

I can’t quote on what other themes may or may not use it – that’s something you’ll have to ask the author about if it’s not evident through the screenshots.

Hello Ed,

This theme is fantastic, both in design and code. Do you have any plans on adding retina support like your most recent theme?

Thanks again for the great work,

Jay

SwiftIdeas

Hi Jay,

It’s on the list of tasks to do :)

Thanks for the feedback, glad you like it!

Hi Ed

great working theme.

But I’ve a problem with Google Analythics, for the life of me I can’t make it work. I’ve reinstalled the tracker several times, but it seams not to reconize it.

Any help?

Thanks a lot

Hi there,

Are you entering the script code without the tags?

- Ed

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 2-3 years

who that was fast:

I’m just copying the tracker from google.

Should I remove the tags? (which ones?)

SwiftIdeas

:)

Remove the <script> and </script> tags from the start and end.

- Ed

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 2-3 years

ok, but at the beginning of the tracker I have: <script type=”text/javascript”> not <script>

SwiftIdeas

Yes, remove that :)

Featured Image Size

Just purchased the theme and implementing it – great so far.

Is it possible to change the size of “featured images” in the post listings and also is it possible to either stop “featured images” from displaying in individual posts and/or to change the size they are displayed in individual posts?

Thanks Tim

SwiftIdeas

Hi Tim,

Of course those are all possible. So you want to change the height on the listing and the detail page?

- Ed

unconsultancy

Yes please my featured images are all 64px by 64 px “icons” in effect so they don’t look great stretched to bigger proportions.

See also also my new question about removing the “click” functionality of featured images in individual posts.

Thankyou for getting back so quickly. Regards Tim

SwiftIdeas

Hi Tim,

That could be done, but would require quite a bit of custom work. Send me an email – support@swiftpsd.com to discuss further if you wish.

Featured Image – link url

Is it possible in individual blog posts to stop the functionality whereby clicking in a featured image brings up that image in a lightbox so those featured images are not clickable?

SwiftIdeas

Sure.

Within the theme folder, go to includes > post-type and then within each of the post type files you can remove the anchor tag from around the image, which will disable the lightbox.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Ed

Thanks – I think I need your expert help. So they are “standard” post types. I am looking at the /includes/post-type/standard.php and I imagine the code that needs changing is near the top:

<?php if (has_post_thumbnail()) { ?>
    <figure>
        
            <?php the_post_thumbnail('detail-image'); ?>
        
    </figure>
<?php } ?>

Can you advise exactly what I should remove / edit. Many thanks. Tim

SwiftIdeas

If you take /includes/post-type/image.php as an example:

<?php if (has_post_thumbnail()) { ?>
    <a class="figure-img image-post" data-gal="prettyPhoto" href="<?php echo $lightbox_img_src[0]; ?>" title="<?php echo apply_filters('the_title', $attachment->post_title); ?>">
        <?php the_post_thumbnail('blog-image'); ?>
    </a>
<?php } else { ?>

Would become

<?php if (has_post_thumbnail()) { ?>
    <?php the_post_thumbnail('blog-image'); ?>
<?php } else { ?>

Hope that helps!

Ed

Thanks – that worked beautifully.

Any thoughts re my other question of making featured images appear as 64 by 64 px?

Thanks Tim
