Beautiful theme. I haven’t bought it yet but plan to use this for my site if certain things are possible.

1. If I am defaulted to Photography Home or I created my own, would it be possible to include an opt-in form and a product image giveaway above the fold?

2. Would it be possible to include an opt-in form on the right sidebar of a blog or a page?

If the answer is yes for both, I am sold. Please let them be.

Hi,

You can insert anything in areas you mentioned. If you have a plugin or code for the form, no problemns :)

Thanks!

Default-user

Thank you, MNKY. I was in a hurry earlier so I wasn’t immediately able to reply.

That is good news!

I noticed that the search only gives back the H1 title, date, category and tags. How do you turn on the search text from within the content. I use the Relevanssi plugin, and can’t get content to show up in the search.

Any help would be much appreciated.

MNKY

Hi,

Do you mean search results page, and you want to add excerpt to it? Just making sure, I understood you correctly :)

Thanks!

Default-user

Yes, you got it. I’d like the excerpts to show up on the search results page.

MNKY
You have to modify format content files for this. Open content.php, content-image.php (and all other content files) and change:
<?php elseif( is_search() ) : ?>
<div class="entry-summary">
</div><!-- .entry-summary -->    
to
<?php elseif( is_search() ) : ?>
<div class="entry-summary">
<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
</div><!-- .entry-summary -->    

Thanks!

hello.

Would it be possible to see the documentation before I purchase this theme? I have had the misfortune of purchasing WP templates with horrible useless documentation and I would just like to make sure that I understand how things work before I commit to buying it

Thanx

MNKY

Hi,

Absolutely, just send us private message via profile page :)

Is it possible to have a fullscreen slider on the homepage, instead of the still image?

Also, do you have a demo link for categories and tags archives?

Hi there, I have a styling issue which I would be grateful if you could help with please

a) I am using Visual composer. I have made a row. Inside it i have a coloured text box and then below it I have 4 buttons and below that one single image

b) What I want to achieve is for these 4 buttons to finish where the colored box and single image finish. For this to happen the 4 buttons need to move right slightly

c) Also the gap between button 3 and 4 is too small compared to the other buttons gaps.

THIS .GIF shows what I mean http://screenpresso.com/=aEhtf (download it to view it as larger image)

MNKY

Hi,

1. As you see all buttons should be spaced evenly, if no changes were made: http://mnkythemes.com/aperture/content-elements/basic-elements/

2. You can always add extra class and then style it in pages custom css or theme options’ custom css. Click edit button and scroll to ‘Extra Class name’. Let’s assume that you added class: mybutton

Now in custom css use:

.mybutton {padding-left:10px;}

3. To move all to the right you can use column layout, 1/4+1/2+1/4 and place buttons in the 1/2. Or you can add additional class to the first button and add margin left or padding left.

Thanks!

Thank you!

Hi Guys, I am trying to use visual composer but not all options of visual composer are available. For example the image gallery is missing. Is there something I can do to solve this?

Regards, Eric

MNKY

Hi,

We have disabled some of the blocks that theme does not utilize; to enable them just open wp-content/plugins/core-extend and on line 70 you will see ”// Remove VC elements”. Just remove elements you want to activate form the list.

Thank you!

Default-user

Great! that did the trick

I’m using this theme for a photography website. I already have dozens of posts with featured image set. Can I use them directly for portfolio? something like this? http://themeforest.net/item/aperture-full-featured-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/8058089
MNKY

Hi,

Absolutely! Create new essential grid and choose your posts as gallery source in Source tab. (See Essential Grid user manual for more detailed instructions)

I can not see a page you mean, link you provide leads to homepage :)

Thanks!

Default-user

thanks, I’ve added a revolution slider on the home page, I want the header to overlay the slides as in your demo, but the slide starts below the header, even though I’ve selected the overlay header option. thanks

MNKY

Hi,

Click edit row that contains your slider revolution and make sure that paddings in general tab are set to 0px

Thanks!

Hi. It seems that the Auto Albums plugin is outdated. Can you verify that?

Default-user

No. Thank you ;) I think RevSlider is also outdated

MNKY

It is already updated. You can download new version :)

Default-user

thx!

hello, just bought ur theme last night and I get some difficulties.
first, your visual composer did not support drag and drop widgets.
secondly, I need to make a search form that would be easily inserted into VC by using raw HTML, can you send me the code or shortcode for this? thanks

MNKY

Hi,

We have disabled some of the blocks (sidebar widgets too) that theme does not utilize; to enable them just open wp-content/plugins/core-extend and on line 70 you will see ”// Remove VC elements”. Just remove elements you want to activate form the list.

Thank you!

What an amazing theme! Two questions:

1. With your theme, am I able to create a section like the top one in this theme: http://demo.udthemes.com/encore/wordpress/ ?

See how the main image (iphones) floats above the background, and when you move the browser in to the mobile dimensions the image bumps up top AND gets resized larger? Can I do this with your theme?

2. Do you have MailChimp integration? I’d like to design a custom opt-in form for my site.

Thanks!!!

MNKY

Hi,

1. Sure, it is default image behavior on responsive screens. It will get bigger once out of containing column.

2. We do not have its integration, but probably it can be used with any theme and custom styles, if needed?

Thank you!

Hi. I’m having a small problem. The Favicon must be uploaded in ico format, but Wordpress doesn’t allow this type of files for security reasons. Any ideas? thx

MNKY

Hi,

You can easily use png file :)

Thank you!

I can’t replicate the demos in my site. I tried, among others, the agency.zip slider demo in the agency page and I get always a huge space at the top. please check carlosandreviana.com Thank you

MNKY

Hi,

Just click edit the row and set top and bottom paddings to 0px.

Thank you!

Default-user

I still have a blank above. I read the source code, but I can’t find why

Default-user

I got it! There was a strong tag around the slider shortcode. Thx!

Hi. I have a slide from revolution slide in the first row (front page). I would like to know if using the script API Methods revapi2.revpause(); and revapi2.revresume(); is possible to pause the slide whenever I scroll the page down, in order to avoid wasting resources. What mean is, as soon as the slide is not visible anymore, it pauses. If I return to it, it resumes. Thank you.

MNKY

Hi,

Unfortunately I won’t be able to answer this question, have never tried it. You should contact plugin author for advanced support.

Thank you!

Default-user

ok. thanks!

Hi, CSS Animation on Vector Icons seems to be broken on the latest version of your theme. Am I doing something wrong maybe?

MNKY

Just tested and animation is working fine with latest version. What exactly happens with animation?

Thanks!

I think I wasn’t patient enough, I’m really sorry. I just tested again, with a delay of 300ms, and it works. Sorry for that.

MNKY

Glad you got it sorted! Feel free to ask any questions :)

Hi. Does the theme have a in-function to backup its options? How can I backup them if it hasn’t one?

MNKY

Hi,

To enable theme options settings open functions.php and comment out line 35:
add_filter( 'ot_show_pages', '__return_false' );

Now Option Tree tab will appear in your dashboard. Go to settings/export.

If you just want to export option values, like colors etc., copy “Settings” window content.

Thank you!

Default-user

Thx!

Hi,

Is there a way to make a specific menu narrower? On http://ffa.cromagnon.ch, when configuring under WPML a language switch with a simple flag (no text at all), you end up with a menu far too large than necessary.

Default-user

I think #site-navigation ul li ul li.menu-item-language a { width: 20px; } works just fine…

MNKY

Hi,

Glad that you already solved it :)

Thanks!

Just a small question please? I just want the section menu. How can I disable the top one? Anyway, I should be seeing it currently, but I’m not. Why’s that? If I create another menu, it shows when I select it for navigation, but not the one from the demo. Thanks

MNKY

Hi,

Do you want to hide only main menu items or the whole menu bar with the logo?

To hide menu only use this in custom css:

#site-navigation {display:none;}

Thanks!

Default-user

Thx!

Can the social media icons shown on the bottom of your demo appear on top instead, in place of the shopping cart and some of those other menu items? And will the icons blend in well with the rest of the menu if they’re used on top?

MNKY

Hi,

Here is how you can use them on top:

http://mnkythemes.com/aperture/full-screen-portoflio/

They can be placed on the right side too.

Thanks!
