Hi Bud, as you can see from : http://www.kernowccg.nhs.uk I have started to make the website now :-) loving it so far…

Adding cookie control and back to top which work perfectly in responsive mode, already getting to grips with the slider (although slide prob with slider is that the slide thumbs in the admin don’t show the image)

Question for you though related to earlier, is there any way to have 6 portfolios derived by different categories?

Over the weekend I will setup an FTP for you and let you loose on the small change we agreed :-)

Great work though bud

blueowlcreative

“is there any way to have 6 portfolios derived by different categories” ... example pls.

richpearsonwd

Yeah sorry, six separate portfolio pages each page to be derived by certain categories only?

blueowlcreative

6 of em? hmmm I would duplicate the code + files for 1 copy but 6…

richpearsonwd

Possible though? Maybe do 1 extra and explain to me how to do it and ill do the rest? Btw this site could be the start of something huge if it takes off – lots more sales and some custom paid for work in a few months :-)

richpearsonwd

In all honesty the filter able part isn’t really needed just need six grid pages with specific categories on each

Have a slight issue from initial install as the portfolio filter page isn’t rendering correctly it seems to leave a gap could you advise please

Cheers matey

blueowlcreative

Make sure you run the Thumbnail Generator, as your images seem to not have been resized for some reason and WP is using the default big sizes! :)

richpearsonwd

Ok sorry must have missed that, where do I go to do that please?

richpearsonwd

Cool thanks

Any way to quickly disable responsive feature? (for the layout to be the same for iphone for example?)

blueowlcreative

Not at this point, you need to remove all the media queries in both stylesheet.css + skeleton.css.

Hi Bud,

Sorry to bother you on a Saturday, need a little help

1) I ran the thumbnail re-generator and it still hasn’t fixed the preview images on the initial slide page in WP Admin

2) I also have this weird 2 col gap on the portfolio page – any idea why? http://www.kernowccg.nhs.uk/portfolio/

3) And I have created a page called localities http://www.kernowccg.nhs.uk/localities/ and taken the code from the portfolio age and tried this on a page using both a default and full width template, I get the same 2 col gap as above and the description seems to have a space between it and the image.

Any ideas as to why this is happening please

Once again sorry to bother you. Rich

blueowlcreative

Hey man, long time no hear from you, almost 6 hours! :)

1. Check if your images are being created at all (your WP images folder, check the file sizes of all images). 2. Same reason, for some reason your image generation doesn’t work, I’ve had a similar issue, turned out my hosting provider had to increase my memory limit for the image generation script to run properly, again – check your images! 3. Same thing, your images don’t get resized!

richpearsonwd

lol im really sorry mate feel bad now :-(

blueowlcreative

Hey i was JK! :)

richpearsonwd

its a cloud server with dedicated resources and 8gb of ram, how can I tell the server cmpany what to check for? Im asking now, GD library maybe thats an issue not sure what to look for here…

richpearsonwd

i know just feel bad bugging you all the time

blueowlcreative

First check for your images, if they are there + their sizes! Look for the 640×300 for example, looks like those don’t work on your theme at all!

richpearsonwd

yep they are all there but no thumbnails of them

richpearsonwd

in wp there is no option to see size variants and on the server there is only 1 copy of the images so they appear to all be large

blueowlcreative

You should have about 7-8 versions of one single image generated at upload with different sizes! ;)

richpearsonwd

nope no thumbs then at all just 1 version of the image

blueowlcreative

Use FTP, mate, the folder is: wp-content/uploads …

richpearsonwd

yep in there on ftp now, and def no size variants, so something is a miss, just not sure what, what GD library do – maybe thats not turned on or something?

blueowlcreative

Call your hosting and tell them about it! This is basic WP functionality that’s not working, they should know what to look for ;)

richpearsonwd

ok bud thanks am doing that now :-)

richpearsonwd

The way im creating a grid is the best way to solve my request though yeah?

blueowlcreative

Looks ok, you only have an extra “P” tag between the image and the heading…

richpearsonwd

again strange one as its not in my code on the page?

richpearsonwd

Something a bit odd about my install maybe?

richpearsonwd

ok looks like the images are being re-sized but not going in the correct directory cant find them either so god knows where they are going – totally stuck :-( server company say they dont know either and are saying its third party software…

richpearsonwd

GD library isnt installed – getting it done now :-)

richpearsonwd

On my localities page, there is a rogue

and a rogue
tag it seems to be adding formatting in on the final outputted page even though its not in the code in the page in WP – odd, any further ideas, getting there and once again really sorry matey

richpearsonwd

it just doesn’t seem to be happy with me pasting the raw code into the page text box, creating some tags that shouldn’t be there, is there a better way perhaps?

richpearsonwd

Used a plugin called Pure HTML in the end which I can add a blog of code and create a snippet from it then just paste the snippet in the page, fixes all the issues :-) useful for you if you ever need it as well…

blueowlcreative

Rich, when you type in HTML, simply use the TEXT editor, not the Visual mate, you don’t need a plugin for that ;)

richpearsonwd

Well interestingly I just read an article on this and the text box doesn’t accept pure HTML wp has some issues over it hence the extra tags being added, when using the plugin and adding the short code it works perfectly, have you ever seen this before? Wondering if its safari that’s the issue??

richpearsonwd

Ps I always use the text box hardly ever the visual

blueowlcreative

Oh Ok, cool. Did your images end up getting generated? Check on you local machine to see the difference if you want (where images should be generated just fine). TTYL…

richpearsonwd

You learn something new everyday :-) its as I suspected GD library is not installed on the server, they are doing it now, problem is I’m not using shared hosting the company bought cloud Linux and I have had to install the server from nothing pretty much myself on went WHM and then a steep learning curve to set up c-panel, services, mail, Dns, name servers, hosts, server names etc the list goes on, blinking nightmare of an install – sorry I have bombarded you with questions today

Also a slight odd one on the homepage: http://www.kernowccg.nhs.uk

I have created a 1/4. 3/4 column for the area at the top with ‘About us’ and ‘Featured Services’ in it but as you can see there is a break gap at the top of the column so in essence the 2 headings don’t line up, I have checked my code and cannot see why it’s doing this.

Is there a better way to achieve what im trying to do here than the way I have done it.

Again sorry Rich

blueowlcreative

Same reason as prev. post. for the image sizes, as for the columns, you have an extra DIV in the second column with class “h10” on top that is creating this padding, get rid of it.

richpearsonwd

i would but it’s not in my code on the page?

blueowlcreative

Ok, maybe the shortcode generates it, then add this to the top of your 1/4 column to the further left:

<div class="h10" />

That should align the titles! ;)

richpearsonwd

into this line? column width=”four” position=”first” About us[/heading]Our job is to buy health services for the population of the county and islands including hospitals, mental health services, children’s services and community services. Our annual budget is around £700 million a year.[/column]

richpearsonwd

im happy for you to log in if you have the time and take a little look for me?

richpearsonwd

yup that worked bud thanks

And the last one for today, do you know of any better login widgets than the one I have added? mine is simply a sliding drawer with a widget of wp-members login added to it to achieve the effect, however I think there must be a better solution than this somewhere

Rich

blueowlcreative

Nope, sorry. :)

Morning Bud,

Ok hopefully sorted GD library issues now, but have com across another issue in that all my services demo pages are coming up saying page not found, they are all live – could you take a quick look please, eg http://www.kernowccg.nhs.uk/services_item/sky-is-the-limit/

Also sent you an email re FTP settings etc

Cheers matey Rich

blueowlcreative

That one seems to open just fine… I submitted the new version to TF earlier today, should be out by tomorrow, so I will take over and do your updates then! :)

richpearsonwd

I fixed it bud, was a memory issue on the server :-)

blueowlcreative

Good job, just what I expected and has happened to me before ;)

I do have one little other query for you, check out the homepage and at the bottom where i have 2 sections for useful links, again both have dropped down out of line with testimonials, my code is clean and I have tried the pre line from yesterday but it doesn’t want to play ball – any ideas?

blueowlcreative

Well get rid of those “h10” divs on the bottom ones…

richpearsonwd

Tried that they are not in my page code and the pre line doesn’t work either

richpearsonwd

Sorted this one :-) sozz

richpearsonwd

oh yeah and updated to latest version as it’s now available :-)

Hey bud, Tried getting a 2 col portfolio to work in a 1/8 column at the footer (where the testimonials are now) but it doesn’t want to show anything other than 4 portfolio items, any idea why this may be please, really enjoying working with the theme though very flexible.

blueowlcreative

Rich, let’s switch to the support forum, as our conversations here are starting to get humongous … :)

richpearsonwd

LOL yeah fair enough bud

Also with wordpress and the pages how does the breadcrumb work? I wanted to do a few service pages tonight and a few sub pages on the services but as WP has no folder structure per say, what is the easiest way to do this so that the breadcrumbs work correctly?

blueowlcreative

The breadcrumbs are pretty much straightforward, you can see the method within your boc_custom.php file and customize if you feel like. :)

Sorry and last one for tonight I promise, see http://nhs.cornwall.umbraco.z.rippleffect.com/ I want to re-create this graphic fo rthe footer of the site, I have the image and have tried adding it in to the stylesheet but because it needs to be poking up out of the footer I wan’t sure how to achieve this, any pointers would be really helpful

Rich

blueowlcreative

Hey Rich,

I would add a padding to the top of the footer and align the BGR image to the top. ;)

richpearsonwd

When you FTP on to do that request, would you mind having a click play with the footer css for me please, as there is that background repeat showing and the grey line above the image, would really appreciate it :-)

blueowlcreative

Rich, This is a customization that would love to help you with but believe me, if I started doing this for everyone I would be doing this 24h a day. I will get on with what I promised to you in a bit, if the footer thing looks easy I will do it… how about that :)

richpearsonwd

Perfect buddy, really appreciate it, I’m just up against it time wise have less tha a week to finish this monster of a website

blueowlcreative

Did you sent me the FTP details? Please do, I will take care of it now.

richpearsonwd

Yeah I did via your form on TF, if you email me at richard.pearson@me.com now I will reply with them again for you :-)

blueowlcreative

Ah, Ok, found it! Getting on with it now! :)

richpearsonwd

Brill thanks buddy

blueowlcreative

I get “host does not exist” error, send me over the IP, and please let’s switch to email, I am sending you now so you can reply.

Hi , Love your theme! :) Very neat and cool.

I have a small problem. I’ve got a table on one page, and it doesn’t fit in mobile version.

The page is scretched, and part on the table is outside the wrapper in mobile version.

Could you suggest a way on how to hide the background for mobile version? I mean how to make it white, like the wrapers itself?

I hope I was clear. Thanx!!!!

Everything else is very cool though!

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

Making the table 100% is your best shot, if it still stretches outsize, then the data doesn’t fit in the responsive size so … not much to do there. As for background, you could simply edit the CSS that applies to that responsive section (in the bottom of your stylesheet.css) and apply background: white; to the html and body. :)

Default-user

Thanx!!

Hi, the sliders are responsive which is great. However they are not recognized as images by Google (which is bad for SEO). Is there an option to insert responsive images (not sliders) on pages (not posts)? Or how can we make sliders more SEO friendly to appear as media content? Thanks

blueowlcreative

Hi,

The slider is a third party plugin… Sure you can put whatever you want in your Pages – how to make them responsive is explained in the Support forum, you simply add a class to them. :)

Hey, another quick question, how to remove the house icon in the top navigation?

It should be in menus I suppose, but I couldn’t find it there. :)

blueowlcreative

Ya, get rid of this:

<a href="'.home_url('/').'"><span class="home_icon" /></a>

in header.php

Default-user

Thanx!

That thingy is still there ;/

Hey, which style in the stylesheet do I need to alter to make all my small links appear an initial colour before rollover? Don’t want this on headers, but spans, p and small styles would be nice . R

blueowlcreative

What do you mean by ‘initial color’? What happened with the logo, bud?

richpearsonwd

Logo all in, sent you several emails as needing a few minor tweaks, re the initial colour, I meant that all links are grey until you rollover them, which is fine for H tags but smaller text I would like to be blue not grey, eg on small links css, p tags span tags etc

I would like to create a page that displays all the portfolio items without a filter. I thought I had a page with this, but it appears to be gone.

How can I recreate it?

blueowlcreative

You could easily increase the Portfolio Items shown in Appearance->Theme Options to say 100, then simply hide the filter row with CSS.

Default-user

This is the page I was looking for http://www.pueblosynergy.net/portfolio_item/

i would like to resize the large pictures (of the business cards) and place them to the left of each members photos. Could you point me to the php file so that I can move the code around?

blueowlcreative
single_portfolio.php is the one that opens an item and the item list is opened. index.php is used for the page you listed above but that one isn’t really used. taxonomy-portfolio_category.php is for this for example: http://www.pueblosynergy.net/portfolio_category/cleaning/

Hello,

For portfolio items and other places on the site, how do I prevent the images from having their borders chopped off.

blueowlcreative

Where do you get your borders chopped off? :)

Default-user

Check this page: http://www.pueblosynergy.net/members/

You cannot see the edges of the business cards.

blueowlcreative

Well that’s because of the images you upload and the way they are being cropped. Make sure your images are taller (even with white space on top and bottom) and the same proportion as these – 300/180.

I have added body { color:black; } to Edit CSS, but all the text still appears grey, what am I missing?

blueowlcreative

What are you trying to achieve with this? You can use Firebug to see what CSS rules apply to every element.

Default-user

I figured it out….have to use p { color:black;}
