Hi,

Wonderful theme, having a very easy time installing it so far. While getting all my content uploaded, though, for some reason the home slider stopped loading images. I had images loaded successfully before, but then it stopped working while I was adding pages and content elsewhere, not even touching the home page or the slider settings. Any thoughts on what could be wrong?

Also, do you happen to have the color hex for your Dark Blue skin? I’d love to be able to match the footer background color to that.

Thanks so much, John

Hi,

This problem is most likely to be caused by a plugin you have installed. You can try to deactivate all the plugins you have and check if this will work. However, I have just uploaded an update (it is waiting for approval) that includes some improvements regarding plugins that affect theme functionality. I will write in the item’s description and on Twitter when the update is available.

It seems to be a problem with photos in general. I’ve tried creating a portfolio page as well (http://gamzeceylan.com/media/photos/) and nothing’s loading there either.

Thanks, John

Thanks! You were right, worked like a charm. 2 last little questions:

1) I have the Featured Post page (home page) set to full-width, and this seems to have pushed the Comments count to a second line for some reason. Have been messing around with the code with no luck. Any idea how to fix it?

2) Do you happen to have the color hex for your Dark Blue skin? I’d love to be able to match the footer background color to that.

John

pexeto

Good to know it is fine now :) Here are my answers:

1) This is a bit strange, however you can fix this by setting the width value to 530px in the section #full-width .post-info ul li.post-info-categories of the style.css file.

2) Yes, the color hex is 325166.

Brilliant. Thanks for the lightning-fast response!

Hey guys,

A new update of Anthology Theme is now available. It includes some code improvements and an option for hiding blog post info. You can download the update for free from the Downloads section and read more about installing it in the Updates section of the latest version of the documentation.

Considering buying the theme but have concern about the gallery.

For the four column gallery, how are the images added? Is it one post per image or can I make one post per gallery with a long list of images?

I have a number of galleries consisting of multiple images per, some with up to 60 images. Doing a post per image for the gallery to populate would be not feasible. I need to be able to do one post which would define all the images for that gallery.

Thanks for a response.

Hi,

Thank you for the interest!

There is a separate portfolio section in which items can be added. With the creation of an item you can set at most two images for it- a thumbnail and a preview if autoresizing functionality is disabled or just a preview if you want your thumbnails to be automatically generated. So if you need 10 items in your page, you will have to create 10 portfolio items and set an image to each of them.

Confirming loss of the theme color settings when activating wp ecommerce specifically—Will wait for your update on this.

Also, after working back and forth with the logo, I can no longer to get my logo to appear. Not sure why this is happening.

pexeto

Hi,

I guess a JavaScript conflict is happening in there and if so, you can still set your colors, but just by inserting the hex values (not with the colorpicker). If the colorpicker is very important for you, you can just deactivate the plugin until you set your colors and activate it back once they are all selected. However, I will check this plugin to see what part of its code is causing the conflict.

Regarding the logo- can you please provide a link so I can have a look?

I’m thinking of using the homepage slideshow as my portfolio page so I can have all my images on my landing page. I am very new to wordpress and only have a very basic knowledge of web design. Is there a way to increase the height of the slider images and background to acommodate vertical-oriented images so that they display a bit larger?

thank you o much,

christina

pexeto

Hi,

Yes, it you can change this very easily- just by changing the height vealues of a couple of elements in the style.css file. Please let me know when you need this change.

Hi. Great theme! What fonts are you using in the header/title of site?

pexeto

Hi,

Thanks, I’m glad you like it :)

I am using Droid Serif (regular and italic) for the headings.

ecdoesit

What about the font in “ANTHOLOGY” and “LEARN MORE ” buttons? Looks close to League Gothic or something.

pexeto

That font is called Bebas.

Hello Pexeto,

it seems I have to put the questions again cause of the themeforest engine.

My questions before ordering:

1. Does the character set support Central-European characters like: “íÍéÉáÁ??úÚ??óÓüÜöÖ” ?

2. How the slider work? For example could I link from the separate pics of the accordion slider to different posts, categories, pages?

3. How the the thumbnails work under the slider? I mean clicking on a thumbnail changes the the big slider image or it could be linked to categories/pages, etc.?

4. Galleries: I would like to use the theme as a photography portfolio. Is it possible to maka more complicated ‘trees’ with sub-levels (I think now I could filter by categories), like: 2006 Photos/Nature Photos/Macro Photos?

5. Is it possible to use a thumbnail as a featured image for a gallery instead of a single pic?

6. Can I use other WP plugins (like nextgen gallery) if it needed?

Thanks for your time.

pexeto

Hi,

Thank you for the interest! Here are my answers:

1.I think that these characters are supported. You can check in the bottom of this page some of the supported characters:

http://pexeto.com/anthology_wp/typography/

2. You can set full URLs there, such as http://site.com so whatever link you insert there it will be set – you can set a link to a post, category or whatever you like.

3. The functionality of the smaller thumbnail is when you click on it to display the bigger one. You can’t set links to the small one, but you can do it to the big one.

4. Yes, you can. There is a possibility to select just one category to be displayed per page- so if you create several parent categories – Cat1, Cat2 and Cat3 and if you create subcategories to each of them, for each portfolio page you create you can select to display only the parent category and its subcategories. Affitionally you for each portfolio item you can set the thumbnail to link elsewhere, not only to open an image- you can choose between opening an image, opening a custom link, opening a video, opening the content of the item and doing nothing when clicked on the thumbnail.

5. As I understand your question you are asking about setting two different images- one for thumbnail and one for preview image, right? If so, yes you can- you just have to disable the automatic thumbnail generation (very easily from the admin panel).

6. This is just a normal theme and like all the WordPress themes it should work with most of the plugins. I am not able to test it with all of the existing plugins, but I don’t think you will have problems with this.

Hello Pexeto,

thanks for the quick reply.

1. About characters: on the page you recommended I miss ???? characters (there are õÕ and ûÛ instead. Is it possible tor check them for me? Thank you.

2. Fine.

3. If the function of the samll thumbnails is that when I click them I can see the big pics, how can I determine whick images should be displayed in the thumbnail row? I mean if I would like to use the slider as a direct link to the 2 latest posts and the rest to link directly to categories/posts like “Macro 2007, Portrait 2005 and so on, is it possible?

4. Fine.

5. I meant that in the gallery section clicking on a pic (not the text) shows a post/other gallery instead of the thumbnail pic in big size.

6. Fine.

.

I’ve cehecked 2 others tehems of you: Sintagma and PaperCore. The features I asked earlier related to Anthology are relevant to those as well?

Thank you

pexeto

Hello again,

1. Here is a link that contains a table with all the supported characters by this font, I think the ones you need are in there:

http://code.google.com/webfonts/family?family=Droid+Serif#set

3. Yes, you can set different links to each of the images. The smaller thumbnails are generated automatically from the bigger ones and for each of the bigger images you can set a different link.

5. Yes you can- you have an option to open a custom URL when the smaller thumbnail is clicked (rather than opening a preview image) so you can set a link to another page, post or whatever you like.

Regarding the other themes you are asking about- no, not all of the features that Anthology supports are supported by them.

I’m facing some problems on the multi level menu. I already created the menu and with the default design style that comes with WordPress everything works just fine. When I change to Anthology Design, the multi level menu stops working and the inside levels doesn’t appear. There is any configuration that I’m missing? Any idea what’s wrong? I’m using WordPress 3.0.1.

Thank You,

Hi,

This is very strange…can you please privately send me some login details via my user profile contact form so I can have a look?

Hi again,

I have just logged in- you have missed to select the custom menu you have created in the Main Menu section, I’ve set it for you and now everything is fine :)

Everything works just fine! Thanks for the help! Great job on the template.

Hello Pexeto,

thanks for the answers. Unfortunately the characters are not there. :(

How much is the font ‘hardcoded’ ? Maybe there is another similar chracter set which supports these letters. Is it hard to change the font family?

Thanks

pexeto

Actually the characters are there, maybe you have missed them- they are on line 12 in the table.

However, changing the font is not difficult- you can either do it in the style.css file or add the additional style in the admin panel in the “Additional Styles” section.

Hey Pexeto,

Just about to buy the theme as I think it looks awesome – can’t wait to get stuck into it.

Wanted to say that the thing that sold it for me was your support through the comments – second to none!

Keep up the good work

Ditto to Snowballs statement. Really happy to see support in the comments here. Makes me feel very confident for the potential buy.

My question: Would it be all that difficult to re-engineer the slider so thumbnails changed on roll-over and clicked thru to a new page on click?

Reason being: I see myself using this for a product site. Products would be highlighted above and below. If someone made the impulse to learn more about a product they see in the thumbnails (which I do very often myself), currently that would only refresh the top view (they would have to notice that) and then the user would have to know again to click in the full view window to be sent through to the product details. This is far from desirable user experiance and I’d like to tweak it to those ends.

See a product thumbnail, click it, learn about it, get it.

What are my chances?

pexeto

Hi,

First of all- thank you for the interest :)

I think that changing the slider functionality in the way you want it won’t be that easy- some changes will be needed in both PHP and JavaScript files. However I think that this slider still can accomplish what you need- you can set a link to the bigger image and when the user clicks on it he/she will be redirected to the selected product page. I hope this will be helpful.

Default-user

Hmm, yeah. Your solution is exactly what I tried to say I’d like to avoid. It means a double click through, double focus, ‘solution’ for th user. I may have to look further, but thanks for th clarification.

Hi, theme’s working great, one last question: when viewing the theme on a large screen with a browser window over about 1245px wide, the theme stops centering itself and all of a sudden there’s dead space on the right. I noticed this did not occur in the demo. Any way to fix it?

Thanks so much, John

pexeto

Hi,

I think that if you add the following code in the Anthology Options -> Styles -> Additional Styles it will be fine:

#main-container{
position:relative;
}

Hello Pexeto,

I have another , less-specific question. In the portfolio section I would like to do the next:

1. It is done: making a subcategory like a directory structure Photos/People/Studio/Woman 01.

2. I would like to show 5 or more shots from this model in the lightbox without linking to a post. Just clicking on the thumbnail, then click forward/backward on the lightbox like image 1 from 5, then image 2 from five and so on.

Is it possible or I have to create a separate portfolio page for each image (5) of Woman 01.?

I hope not (that is not so efficient for hundreds of images).

Thanks a lot.

pexeto

Hi,

For each image in the portfolio page you need to create a separate portfolio item and to each portfolio item you can bind one preview image. If you would like to show more images, you might consider inserting the images into the content of the item and make either the title of the item or the item itself link to the content.

  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

Hi Pexeto,

thanks for the answer. Do you plan to enhance the portfolio features in the future with something like “show all post attachment images in the lightbox preview”?

As a photographer with hundreds of images creating portfolio items for each single photo takes too much time.

Thank you, best regards.

pexeto

I think that the way portfolio works now is more functional for most of the users, as with the creating of a separate portfolio item for each image you have the possibility to set a content to it (which most of the people need) and also you gat a range of options to set to each item separately. This makes it more flexible rather than just inserting lots of images at once.

Otherwise, I am planning to create a theme that will be more photography oriented and probably will contain this functionality :)

Hey great theme !!

I have little question about it. Is there a way to start the theme (the mainpage) with a big image that fit into the slider dimensions instead of the original slider ?

keep up the good work

pexeto

Hi,

Thanks, I’m glad you like it :)

Yes, there is- you can accomplish this by selecting the Nivo slider for the page and after that you just need to insert your image (in the section for inserting Nivo images) and set the Navigation option of the slider to “None” (No buttons, no arrows).

Hi, my client liked this theme and so do I and it looks like it’s getting great support. I realized though that the page sidebar is not set to be unique per page which is an issue for me as I’d like to configure each page with it’s own sidebar with info that pertains to it.

Am I missing something or is this functionality not present at all?

pexeto

Hi,

First of all- thank you, I’m glad you like the theme :)

The feature you need is not included with the theme- I never promoted that there is a sidebar generator, additionally you can see in the Item Description section that is written “4 dynamic sidebars inclided”. However I am really thinking about adding this feature in a next update.

Hi,

I’m having a problem with my client’s website… The website uses the “books” page for the index and the “blog” page for the blog entries. Weird thing is, the blog page isn’t showing at all. It’s just a blank page.

It worked fine locally, but when I uploaded it the error described above happened. I deactivated all the plugins to figure out what was wrong, only to see nothing changed.

Thoughts, anyone? The blog needs to be live as soon as possible.

The blog is located at http://worderella.com/blog

pexeto

Hi,

This is really strange- you can try to reactivate the theme again. Also please check whether the index.php file is consistent and also you can try to replace it again. Also, please make sure that the settings you have made in “Settings->Reading” to display your blog are valid ones. If nothing helps, please feel free to send me privately some login details so I can have a look, but you need to know that I will be out of the office during the weekend and I will be able to have a look after this.

The REALLY weird thing about this is if you click a particular blog post link, it is visible.

So confused. I’m unable to upload a new copy of the theme while at work, so I guess I’ll try it tonight. Thank you for the very quick response! I will send you private login information if I can’t resolve the issue.
