Can you please tell me how I can show more portfolio items on the slider? right now it only shows the most recent 10. I want it to show unlimited number.

EngineThemes

Hi,

are you talking on the lightbox portfolio slider?

Yes, I am referring to the “Projects” page… http://wp.themecss.com/Arch/projects/

I want to show an unlimited number of products in the slider for a particular category.

EngineThemes

I can not get any images to show up on a project page. I’ve created the page and then uploaded the image to the page but it does not show.

EngineThemes

Hi,

did you read this steps already? (4.2 How to Create Project Image Slider) that should work fine..

thanks

I also would like to insert the page content of the ‘About Us’ page template and hide the services. I’ve already hid the services, now what file would I be able to use to insert the hook for the content?

EngineThemes

Hi,

you need to add this under the function get_theme_page_title();

<?php 
   if (have_posts()) : 
       while (have_posts()) : the_post(); 
       the_content();                                 
       endwhile; 
   endif;
?>

thanks

I figured it out. I have my wordpress install outside my domain root folder. If anyone has issues with projects not showing images, check single-projects.php in the arch folder.

There will be a bunch of <script> pulling stylesheets and javascript using the <?php echo home_url(); ?> function. This calls only the domain and not the wodpress location. I had to append /wordpress/ after the function. So the fixed ones look like <?php echo home_url(); ?>/wordpress/rest/of/url/example.js”>

EngineThemes

Yes, that should do the fix if you have files outside root folder.. single-projects.php is displayed using iframe from fancybox..

thanks

Default-user

I need the iframe that pops up the image and image title + categories to change the title with the image. Right now it only says the title of the project. As in my other post, if I echo in the $img_title it doesn’t change with the image either.

Default-user

Also, if it’s possible to pair images, as a before and after side by side?

EngineThemes

Hi,

currently the theme does not support those features you mentioned, you need to customize it to fit your needs..

The google map shortcode isn’t working. What would cause this issue? I have already updated to your latest version.

also, where do I Find the default background images that are automatically appearing after uploading the theme? I want to change them but can’t find them.

EngineThemes

Hi,

1. did you activate the plugin “typo shortcodes”?
[googlemap width="100%" height="500" src="https://maps.google.com/?ll=39.061849,-99.536133&spn=14.980005,33.815918&t=m&z=6"]

2. default background here: “bg-slider.php” and find the function temp_bg_image()

thanks

Thank you for the answers. Did you see my note about my issue where it is showing “Please add large resolution image” to projects that already have a large resolution image associated with them?

EngineThemes

Hi,

next time please maintain discussions here or in our forum, email us if you send private accounts/logins/url..

I am not sure how you add the images but if you follow this step (4.2 How to Create Project Image Slider) carefully, this will fix your issue..

thanks

Ok, how do I change the URL for project categories so instead of “project_categories/” right now it’s www.<<my site>>/project_categories/

I want it to www.<<mysite>>/courses/

EngineThemes

go to “includes/custom-post.php” and find “project_categories” code and change it to your desire name (don’t forget to create back up of your old file).. and change the filename of this file “taxonomy-project_categories.php” like this “taxonomy-courses.php”

open “loop-projects.php” and find “project_categories” and change it..

that should do the changes..
thanks

Ok, how do you change the drop down that appears when the screen resolution of a user is smaller than the “responsive” function? There is a drop down that appears in the upper right hand corner where main nav would be when I size my browser window smaller, but when I click the drop down, nothing is in there.

Default-user

Hi, that didn’t work, I did all of your above changes, now I do not see the project listings in the drop down, and there is no categories associated as a sub item for the project items.

EngineThemes

Hi,

Ok I got a quick solution.. please get back your back up files (custom-post.php and taxonomy-project_categories.php) and open your custom-post.php file and find function project_taxonomies() and copy this code

register_taxonomy( 'project_categories', 'projects', 
            array( 'hierarchical' => true, 'label' => 'Categories', 'query_var' => true, 'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'courses') ) );

that should work fine..
thanks

Hi,

How do I get the titles ‘lower’ on the homepage? All my titles are showing up directly under (touching – but not overlapping) the menu, I want them down father on the page, positioned exactly as your demo shows them.

Where is that configured, and what do I need to change?

Thanks.

EngineThemes

Hi,

what do you mean? do you have a link of your site?

thanks

The orange box, in your demo, that has the titles: “We are a creative architecture studio, new gen architecture, etc….” That orange box is touching the menu for me. Take your orange box and have it up so that the top of the box is exactly aligned with the bottom of the menu.

That is what I mean. what controls the vertical position of that orange box?

EngineThemes

Hi,

you can change it’s css code by using “Appearance >> Theme Options >> General >> Custom CSS” and add this code

.home .slideshow { 
     margin-top:20% !important; 
     //change this value to your desire value, you can use either %, px or em..
}

I hope that helps!

send me here your site link please..

Perhaps instructions to include the typo shortcodes and a list of the urls/functions to change or append if you use this theme on a wordpress install that is off the root folder should be included in the documentation for this theme. OR better yet the code to be change to work so it doesn’t matter. Just a thought.

EngineThemes

Hi,

we will implement it if their’s a lot of request.. for now themes are installed in their proper root directory..

thanks

How do you link the items in the scroller? i have the scroller running on the home page, have the correct titles, but don’t see where the link is made.

Where do you set the links for those items?

EngineThemes

Hi,

you mean a link for each slide title? please explain more or give your site link here..

thanks

Default-user

Yes, I wish to have the titles linked to somewhere. Having an arrow that isn’t linked to anything doesn’t make sense. So where do I configure the link for each slide title.

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

I have installed this as a child theme with wordpress NOT on my root. I want to replace the #slidecaption with a different opacity and padding, however changing it via the /arch-child/style.css file does not do the trick. It seems to be loading a new version of js/supersized/theme/supersized.shutter.css and cancels out the child-theme style.

Is there a work around for this? And is there a way to make the arch-child/style.css load AFTER all style sheets? or is this loading because of a .js event? I noticed many style sheets are pulled again after the arch-child/style.css is loaded.

EngineThemes

Hi,

those stylesheets are from jquery plugin we used (you are free to remove that if you don’t want to use it).. you can simply add the exact path for your site that should work fine..

thanks

Default-user

nvm I think it was the stylesheet was cached and didn’t load over. That sent me on a wild goose chase…

I also would like the single-project pages to display the title as the image title and not the project-page title.

EngineThemes

Hi,

that should work if you customize the theme.. and add the code for image attachment title..

thanks

Default-user
Any kind of pointers would be appreciated. I got it to change the title in single-projects but it does not change the title when the image changes.. Line 131
<h2><?php echo $img_title ?></h2>

How can I link to existing items in my Media, for the Projects? Thanks.

One other question, how to reorder items, once they are in the project?

I don’t mean ascending or descending, I mean there is one specific image I need to move forward three places.

Sorry for so many questions…

OK, one more question. I have changed every possible option to get my projects in the order I need them, with no changes. I have selected each option, just to see if I can see a change and then try to figure it out on my own, ID, author, title, menu_order, etc… both DESC and ASC, and there is never a change.

Right now the list is essentially backwards, which sucks. The most popular projects are hidden to the right, and the least popular are visible to the left.

Please address how to ensure the project is ordered as I need it to be. And, this is not related to me reading the single line of 4.8 or 4.9…

EngineThemes

Hi,

as I’ve mentioned earlier (please send me the link of your site).. did you use the WP drag and drop feature? go to the media library of the specific project and then drag and drop the image you want to move.. send me your wp credentials here (http://goo.gl/E1lUS) and I will take a look your dashboard..

thanks

These are separate questions, this is not a question about ordering the items inside the project, this is about order the projects themselves.

I cannot send login credentials, this is a confidential client project.

I realize I have many questions here, however I need them answered.

1) How do I link the titles in the homepage scroller, so that visitors can go somewhere when clicking on the title?

2) How can I link to existing Media Items in a project? (I have hundreds and hundreds of images already on the site, it makes no sense to reupload.)

3) How do I change the order of the projects themselves? None of the options under Projects>Project Ordering nor Orderby seem to have any impact on the order.

Thank you.

Hi,

1. as I’ve check our file I saw we accidentally remove the link of the title.. here’s a fix, open bg-slider.php file and find line 51 and 152 overwrite the current code to this

image_slides.push({image : '<?php echo $image_attributes[0] ?>', title : '<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>', thumb : '<?php echo $image_attributes_thumb[0] ?>'})    

2. projects are created using their post ID so you need to re-upload images to a specific post ID of your projects.. if you don’t want to re-upload again, try clicking the create gallery..

3. here’s a quick fix on that.. open template-projects.php file and find line 31 to 45 and overwrite the current code to this..

<?php
$project_order = get_option('arch_album_order');
$project_orderby = get_option('arch_album_orderby');

$args = array( 'post_type' => 'projects', 'orderby' => $project_orderby, 'order' => $project_order, 'posts_per_page' => -1 );
$wp_query = new WP_Query( $args );    

if ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) :
while ($wp_query->have_posts()) : $wp_query->the_post();         
get_template_part( 'loop', 'projects' );                            
endwhile;
else :
_e( 'You should add a record for your Project Post', 'arch_lang' );
endif;    
?>    

thanks for the heads up.. I will update the file of this theme asap!

Curious at where all of my text container lines went? I’ve actually never seen them, take a look:

http://stjoseph.wpengine.com/contact-us/

or with the tabs shortcode along the sides of the box:

EngineThemes

Hi,

1. I’m sure your using contact form 7 plugin, so you need to customize it’s css in order for the lines to appear.. or else use our “Contact us” custom page template..

2. I’m not sure what you mean but when I saw your page tabs are working fine..

Hi,

1.) there is a small problem with firefox 19.0.2 and the search button in e.g. http://wp.themecss.com/Arch/blog/. The button should be left aligned to the search field.

2.) you switch to the mobile menu if the width of the browser is less then 1200px. But also on my big monitor, if do not view website in full screen. Why not show the normal menu if it fits?

3.) I was not able to change the backgroud images and backgroud slider text – and i read the docu 4.2 – 4.4

4.) Is there a way to use a group of background images for a set of pages and a other group for another set?

thx Peter

EngineThemes

Hi,

1. I’m using FF 19.0.2 and search box works fine, do you have a screenshot on this..

2. we are working on this fix, for now you can change the code here “responsive.css” and find line 8 and remove this code

header nav

after that find the line 7 (#mselect) and change the code to

#mselect { display:none; }

3. did you check the “slider” check box for this? any link of your site please..

4. currently background slider only works for homepage, other pages works with only 1 background image..

thanks

Hi,

I have purchased your wonderfull theme and set up my page. Very nice documentation. 1 question though, I just can’t to figure out.:

In your demo the slider title is NOT a link. In my page it is – linking to the slider image. I wish to keep the slider titles, but don’t want it to function as a link to my slider image. Is there a way to do one of the following:

1) Remove the link function in slider title?
2) Instead of linking to the slider image, link it to an optional page?

Thanks:)

EngineThemes

Hi,

1. yes, go to “bg-slider.php” and find line 51 and 152 overwrite the current code to this

image_slides.push({image : '<?php echo $image_attributes[0] ?>', title : '<?php the_title(); ?>', thumb : '<?php echo $image_attributes_thumb[0] ?>'})    

2. good idea, we will talk about it if we will implement it..

thanks

Great looking theme. Just wanted to second the thought of having custom links to the bg-slider. This would be an excellent option.

Thank you!

EngineThemes

1. open bg-slider.php file and find line 51 and 152 overwrite the current code to this

image_slides.push({image : '<?php echo $image_attributes[0] ?>', title : '<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>', thumb : '<?php echo $image_attributes_thumb[0] ?>'})  

2. currently it only links to image, you can customize the code for that..

thanks..
