Hello, I want to know how can we make the captions visible on the template? I need to include the credits of the images I am using under each photograph and when I inout the information on the “caption” of each image it does not show it. I hope you can help me.

Thanks

Hello, unfortunately that’s not possible by default, sorry, you will need to add them directly in the post content.

Hi, 2 Questions:

1) My website isn’t responding well on a Nexus 7 tablet, will this be updated soon?

2) Which email subscription plug-in do you recommend for this theme?

Thanks

FinalDestiny

Hello.

1) Can you attach a screenshot on imgur.com with the issue?

2) I’ve used MailPoet on a different theme and it did the job, however, it will need some customization if you want it to integrate with the theme smoothly.

Hello,

I am trying to change the small default logo from the “A” with the two branches to my own personal logo but having difficulty doing so. What is the best way to change that?

Thank you!

FinalDestiny

Hello, you can edit the logo in the Theme options panel.

Hello, I have two problems:

1) when I try scrolling down, I see double posts

2) is there an option to stop infinite scrolling?

FinalDestiny

Hello

1) Please update your theme

2) Unfortunately not, sorry

Hello, is there a way to stop touch screens screwing with the slider? So you can only navigate through the slider via the buttons on its right? Because it can get a bit messy when you want to use your touchscreen merely to scroll down on the page but it screws with the slider.

FinalDestiny

Hi, you can go to js/main.js and find

var slider = jQuery('.normal-slider').bxSlider({
            mode: 'vertical',
            slideSelector : '.slide',
            controls : false,
            pager : false,
            onSlideBefore : function() {
                normalSliderWrap.find('.slider-controls').find('.current-slide').text(slider.getCurrentSlide()+1);
            }
        });

replace it with

var slider = jQuery('.normal-slider').bxSlider({
            mode: 'vertical',
            slideSelector : '.slide',
            controls : false,
            pager : false,
            touchEnabled: false,
            onSlideBefore : function() {
                normalSliderWrap.find('.slider-controls').find('.current-slide').text(slider.getCurrentSlide()+1);
            }
        });

it would be nice if a fruitless search would show a “no results found” message instead of a completely blank page, is there some way to realize that?

FinalDestiny

Hello, I will add it in the next update, right now unfortunately not. You’d need to modify search.php and check if the query returns any results

Hi,

I just purchased this theme and it looks great. I’m having issues with the header though. The problem is when I use a header option with an image (i.e. header variation 3), the header image shows on the homepage (or any page) but on a single post page it does not and the header’s height is very large. I assume I have the latest code since I purchased about an hour ago. Screenshots are below:

Homepage/Page:

Single Post:

FinalDestiny

Hello, on the single post it will show the featured image of that post and not the one from the homepage or the other pages. The single page has its own header image(the featured image of the post)

Default-user

Ahh ok, thanks for that. So out of curiosity, why does my single post page have so much space in the header when there is no featured image?

FinalDestiny

Because the height is fixed, no matter if you use a featured image or not, it will still take that space.

Hi again,

I want to use Header Var.5, with/without a background image.

But when I open a post with featured image, the featured image strangely shortened.

It’s as if the image got shortened because it’s overlapping the Header Variation 5.

Any solution on this?

Thanks!

fedreik
fedreik Purchased

Exactly.

I want to use header var5, and want the featured image to show full width and height (not cropped).

Because as you can see in the link, the featured image is supposed to be fullscreen just like when you use header var 1, but it got cropped and not fullscreen.

Hi Cristi,

Sorry to disturb your holiday.

So, can I see this problem solved anytime soon? I am gonna need it ready before new year.

Thanks again, man.

FinalDestiny

Hi, go to single.php and find

elseif($variation == 5 || $variation == 6) {
    $class = 'type-3';
}

replace it with

elseif($variation == 5 || $variation == 6) {
    $class = 'type-1';
}

Hi Christi,

I really like your theme, especially the desktop view. I am almost convinced to use it for a personal blog.

However, I was checking out Arwyn on my phone (iPhone 5S, latest iOS) and noticed a couple issues with the mobile view:

  • I can’t scroll in the hamburger menu, can’t access all items (screenshot)
  • On all pages, there is an unneccessary horizontal scrollbar, messing with horizontal swipes (screenshot)
  • On a post, the menu icon is overlapping the blog title (screenshot)
  • On a post, the sticky share/like menu is also messed up, “next” not visible (screenshot)

Could you have a look at these and let me know if you could fix these?

Cheers, Florian

FinalDestiny

Hello. I will take a look at them.

for #1, unfortunately due to the way the menu bar was coded, it’s not scrollable so if you have a large amount of menu items, there’s no work-around, sorry

And for #3, the same, since the space for those elements is pretty limited, there’s no other place to place the icon to open the menu.

Default-user

Thank you for your response!

Re #3: My only issue is that the menu symbol in posts is sitting lower than on the homepage. If it would sit at the same position, it would not overlap the title, I believe.

Cheers, Florian

FinalDestiny

Hello, I will check it in the next days, thanks!

Never mind – I found the code I needed to modify in the css. You can delete this comment.

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! I LOVE THS THEME!

Hello,

Great theme! I was wondering if I could get some help altering the post titles on my home page. The excerpts of the latest posts get hyphenated if the title is too long, so the problem is that the some of the titles get hyphenated in the wrong places and end up looking odd. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you.

FinalDestiny

Hello, the post titles shouldn’t be shortened in any way, it’s just the content that gets shortened

I had a few questions before purchasing.

1. Is it possible for me to create a page that only pulls up a specific post categories (i.e. if I only want my DIY post to load on this page as opposed to my fashion post) in a masonry style format?

This is something I am really interested in this theme having. Other than that I love the theme, and it looks perfect for what I need.

Thank you,

Stephanie

FinalDestiny

Hello, that’s not possible by default, but I can provide you the code for such a page template, but you will need to add the id of the categories manually.

Default-user

That actually would be great! Im looking to purchase this weekend. Can you provide the code now? SO that when I set up its already available to me? Thanks

FinalDestiny

Unfortunately I can’t offer support upfront. :) I will write the code for you once you purchase it.

Hello! thanks for the really nice theme, it`s beautiful! I just have one Problem, I need one of the post pages to be the static front page. Is there any possibility to change that??

Thanks so much in advance greetings from cologne Anne

FinalDestiny

Hello, that’s not related to the theme but to WordPress, it’s possible to set a page as your frontpage, in Settings > Reading, but it won’t work with a post.

Is it possibile to have a different menu for mobile devices? on mobile version menu is not showing properly and the logo is not responsive.

FinalDestiny

Hello, it’s not possible to have a different menu for mobile devices, not without customization. What problems are you having on mobile devices? What’s your URL?

FinalDestiny

And what problems are you having on mobile devices?

Hello,

I cannot see an option for Single Post with right side bar (as shown here. I am only getting full width single post page (it is by default)

Default-user

OK. I discovered how to add side bar in the post page. It is in the edit post option. But I want to show post wise content on side bar. But it shows same content for every post. Is it possible to show post wise content?

Default-user

I have resolved the problem of custom side bar by installing a 3rd party plugin. Now my question is that I don’t want to show the big image on Single Post page. Its wasting a lot of space in my context. How can I remove it?

FinalDestiny

Hello.

You can decrease the space taken by the featured image by adding this code to style.css

header.image-header .content {
margin-top: 15px !important;
}
header.image-header {
margin-bottom: 15px !important;
}

Hello!

I was wondering if there was a way to make it so that visitors can click on the image AND the title of a post in both the slider and the blog feed on the home page? I have had some confused clients who thought they were unable to click on a post because currently, they can only click on the post title and they were trying to click on the image instead.

Thanks!

Default-user

Thank you for your quick reply. I attempted the code provided and it didn’t appear to make a difference.

I also attempted to change:

<img src="<?php echo $resized;?>" alt="<?php the_title();?>" />

to

<a href="<?php the_permalink();?>"><img src="<?php echo $resized;?>" alt="<?php the_title();?>" /></a>

with no success either.

Default-user

The code you provided actually ended up breaking the post stream.

FinalDestiny

ThemeForest messed my syntax, make sure you did only this:

<div class="overlay">

replace it with

<div onclick="window.location='<?php the_permalink();?>'" class="overlay">

Hey Buddy!

Okay, I’ve made good changes to fit what I need, and I think I’m stuck on only two things I can’t seem to find the answers to when I search in the comments:

1 – Is there a way to adjust the header around the logo? The logo I set to 100×100 and it looks good, but the nav-bar is now a little too high. Can I reduce the top padding/margin on just the logo? I want the nav-bar to look a little more centered. Otherwise, I’ll just reduce the logo in size until it looks right.

2 – I created an internal page with the sidebar, and the sidebar is HUGE! Is there a way to reduce it so it matches more of the homepage / post pages?

http://tsg.blakehammerton.com/the-gentlemans-curriculum (the page with sidebar)

NOTE: I did change the width of the posts container to make it wider, so if that screwed it all up, let me know and I’ll change it to something else. I asked that question already, and you told me how to change it.

Thanks for all the support, Cristi!

FinalDestiny

Hi!

1) Add this to style.css

header.type-2 figure img {
margin-top: -21px;
}

2) Uhm, I’m not sure what you mean, the width is the same for both sidebars(homepage and the individual page)

Alexanderblake

Strange, nothing worked.

I added the code in the custom CSS section, but it made no difference. I’ll keep playing with it.

Point #2 – if you look at the containers on a POST with the sidebar, they look great. They leave a little room on the left and right for the page background. On the PAGE with a background, there’s no room… It almost looks like the sidebar and content containers were increased to fill a percentage of the total page. I hope this makes sense.

You can check out what I mean on my site (link above). Compare that page with any of the individual posts and you’ll see how the content and sidebar are bigger on the page, than they are on the post.
