Hi!!

Is it possible to have an image header on first page, just like on post pages?

Thanks!

EckoThemes

Hey jclimac,

Its currently not possible in the current version, however it is a planned feature which I hope to include in an upcoming update.

Nice looking theme. Quick question: do you do video embeds (YouTube, Vimeo) with just the URL, or is iframe required?

Thanks.

EckoThemes

Hey tcervo,

Its works with whatever HTML snippet the website you used to host the video provides you with. For example, if you go to an YouTube then click ‘Share’ -> ‘Embed’, you can see the code you would paste in your posts.

Another question: is it possible to disable auto-resizing of certain images? Some of my posts have smaller images within the post (a company logo, for example), and it looks bad fully stretched to the width of the page. Can this be changed on an image-by-image basis?

EckoThemes

Hey tcervo,

I just replied to your email.

Hi

Same question as tcervo: is it possible to set the width of images on a per case basis?

Hey DanieleSalatti,

Send me an email to support@ecko.me and I’ll send over the same information.

Is there a way to have the unminified sass/js included in the download?

Thanks!

I just transferred my blog from the hosted Ghost platform to the self hosted version. It all works except for the big cover images. Any idea what I could be doing wrong or how can I debug that?

EckoThemes

Ensure that you have marked the post as featured by clicking the star icon for each post you wanted to have the cover images, and that a post image has been set for the post.

If you’re still having issues send me an email (support@ecko.me).

Theme looks great, but I would like to see masonry type of frontpage with facebook comments support

Am I the only one who had to dig through the comments to find about the tag support? Totally didn’t realise they are above titles (‘Developer Workflow’, ‘Programming patterns’, ...). How about doing something more conventional and putting them right next to the post date?

EckoThemes

Its used as a Category header, and its pretty common to have it placed away from the post meta data. Another reason is design variation, if every theme followed convention there would be very little variation. Our other Ghost theme, ‘Orca’, has tags next to the post date if you prefer that format.

Hey there,

I’m working with a client who picked this theme for their blog and I’m having an issue with the install: “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

Cheers

Hey CaptainMacdonald,

This theme is for the Ghost blogging platform, not WordPress. The WordPress version of Astro is available here.

Hi,

The side icon for linkedin doesn’t seem to have a matching icon/animation. How to fix?

Thanks,

EckoThemes

Hey bnzai,

Send over an email to our support address (support@ecko.me) and we can provide you with some information to resolve the issue.

This looks like a great theme, the only question I have is, I notice on the live demo site the comments are always behind a view comments button.

Is there an option to show comments by default without requiring a view comments button to be clicked?

EckoThemes

Hey Valkrysa,

Yep, there is an option in the theme configuration which allows you to auto load comments.

Awesome thanks for the fast reply. Purchasing first thing after work :)

The Welcome to Ghost post has an example of code in it. However, it doesn’t look like there’s that much highlighting going on. Does it automatically detect languages?

Here’s an example: http://cl.ly/Y0pm

Thanks.

EckoThemes

Hey simplifiedfun,

By default the highlighter uses generic pattern matching, you can specific a particular language using a HTML snippet. Email our support address (support@ecko.me) and we can provide some more information.

The Preview Url (http://themeforest.net/item/astro-responsive-ghost-theme/full_screen_preview/6653121) doesn’t seem to work.

Do you have an alternative Demo to check it out?

EckoThemes

I cant seem to replicate the issue on a number of networks. Could you send the error code, and any accompanying text to support@ecko.me. Thanks.

Default-user

Ok apparently it was only a problem with my private network, it’s fine now. On my iphone it was a cache problem.

Sorry for the false alarm and thanks for the quick response!

EckoThemes

No problem. Let me know if you have any questions about the theme.

The theme I’ve been looking for a long time but a little thing made me confused. Why it does not have a main page header image ? In post pages, it looks great but it should have a header image in mainpage too. Do you consider any updates about this ? Because I’m going to buy Astro when I’m finished with my recent works to get into Ghost blogging and customizing. Good sales.

EckoThemes

An alternative demo with this feature enabled can be found here.

krypted

Thank you :) There’s a cool annotation feature in your Jekyll version of Astro(for image and code blocks).

Is that enabled in Ghost version too ? I did not notice it in the demo but wanted to ask.

EckoThemes

Yep, its supported in all versions of Astro, however a bug in our latest update has caused this to no be shown. We are releasing a patch update later today to fix this issue.

Astro v1.6 has been released. Below is the change-log for this update.


v1.6 - 27/01/2015
+ Added 'Blog Cover' Feature
+ Added Multi-Author Post List
+ Improved Navigation
+ Updated FontAwesome
+ Updated Analytics Tracking
+ Updated Documentation
- Various Minor Bug Fixes

Hi, I just bought the theme, and love it so far! I have three questions:

1) I have my homepage set up with a cover image, but don’t access to the bookmark logo you’ve used in the top left — would it be possible to get this somehow so I could modify it and use it on top of the cover image?

2) Is is possible to link to other websites in the site description?

3) Is there a way to use a full-width image in a post, or at least expand the image with a lightbox?

Thanks!

EckoThemes

Hey Xorlathor,

Thanks for your comments and purchase. We just responded to your email support ticket.

Hi,

love the appearance of Astro, and have some pre-sales questions:

1) Could you provide a screenshot of the theme options/configuration please?

2) Can the menu visibility be configured i) at all ii) per page/post?

3) Can the author/date info be hidden at least for posts?

Another question: I love the appearance of your site ecko.me. Any chance making a theme out of that, too?

Thank you so much.

EckoThemes

Hey joachimschlosser,

Thanks for your comments.

1. Please send an email to our support address (support@ecko.me), and we can send you a copy of the theme documentation which details all the available theme options.

2,3. These can be modified via some custom CSS which we can provide.
