How do I disable post slider?!

MNKY

Hi, there is no such option in blog template. You can also use post shortcodes on page without slider. And as we answered you in email , we will look at it on Monday, and will se how you can disable slider at all. Thank you!

Hi Mnky,

Messaging you on here as requested.

I need to make the ‘read more’ link on the post slider to be more visible please.

Ideally it would be perfect it the read more link could be changed to the ‘Insert more tag’ like in the posts, I think it would look very very nice.

Is that possible?

Thanks

Hi, please contact us via profile, you will see little contact form here, because that is the only way we can see you email :) And there is excerpt words option in slider settings, this specifies where read more is placed, so this is done that way. Thank you!

Hi everyone,

Big City rules! I’ve got one question. How can I use Posts Slider on static pages? I’d like to set one page on my frontpage, but on the top I ‘d like to put some photos with text in the silder (Header Slider doesn’t allow that – I can put there only photos).

Thanks,

Jack

Hi , Jack and thank you!

Post slider is set only for blog page. But it is possible to put it also in other template, but it will show same slides as on blog page, but you also can remove it from blog page.

So to sum up, we can set slider for you on a special template and can remove it from blog if you want, also it can stay, but content will be the same for slider on both pages.

Thank you!

Hi there,

i was excited with the update in portfolio section, but to me it doesn’t work.

I create a page with portfolio four columns, create a service type category, but when i create a new portfolio work, and put in portfolio category to show the category name i had put in service type, the portfolio work doesn’t appear.

So, i tested leave blank the portfolio category to show space, and in this way the portfolio work appear…

i have made something wrong ?

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hey, just did what you said step-by-step and works fine. Are you sure you enter category name not the id ? :) Thanks !

Default-user

yes, i enter the category name, not the slug.

Default-user

Hi, i try to use the slug of service type, and now it’s work. Example: i have a category with the name: Fotografia, but the SLUG is: fotografia-casamento

If i erase the word casamento in the slug, the portfolio sort work.

So i must use the slug instead of category name ?

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi, if it is working that’s great :) Use it the way it works, use slug. Just didn’t think that you may have different name and slug, my bad :) Cheers

Hi, loving the theme! A few questions… 1.how do you do the big heading on ‘main page’ – I don’t want to make h1 bigger. 2.I added a service shortcode but it repeats the title – how do I add an icon please? 3. In portfolio 4 column – how do I change the size of the item thumbs (currently 205×140) Thanks

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi and thank you!

1. If you do not want to change heading size, just enter this to your editor in html mode. And change font size there.

<h1 style="text-align: center; font-size: 100px;">Welcome to the Big City</h1>
2. Here is service shortcode:
[service title="Title" icon="http://" size="32"] Your text[/service]

3. You can do that, with some modification, but only change height,otherwise it will not be 4 columns anymore :) Just open functions.php and on line 33 change your size.

Cheers!

Hi, sorry, another question :)... If I create more than one page with the ‘portfolio 4’ template can I have different portfolio items in each? At the moment all my portfolio items appear in each of my ‘portfolio 4’ pages. Thanks

Hi, sure you can :) Just write portfolio category slug names you want to display in your pages. Thanks

hey,

first, i love this theme, second: I’ve got a big problem with my post slider. I followed your instructions of the pdf but i can’t see the slider on my blog…there’s only a lil small empty box. Any idea what I’m doing wrong!?

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi and thank you,

Do you mean box insted of slider or content box with no blog entries and slider? If so you just have not specified your blog page under Reading settings. Please tell a bit more details so we can help or better send a message via profile so we can login and configure it if needed :) Thanks

Hi, one of the things I see already is that you have great customer service with your themes and I greatly appreciate that!

Okay so for my question. I’m only a novice at best with PHP and am familiar with editing code a little bit. Is there an easy way for me to change the navigation from vertical to horizontal?

I really love the theme but that’s the only thing right now keeping me from purchasing – the navigation.

If it will be more challenging for a novice to change the navigation layout, are you willing to do it for me (additional customization fees applied of course)?

Thanks in advance!

Hi choklate,

Thank you for kind words :)

I think we can try to make it possible with custom menu widget, just putting it to the header widget area on the right and creating a dropdowns for second level. Contact us via profile to discuss it a bit further.

Thank you!

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi, we just uploaded update and took your idea into account, so now you will have option to create horizontal menu with custom menu widget, just put it into header widget area :)

It will be announced on item page when approved.

Cheers

you guys are awesome!! thank you!! :-)

Question regarding the contact page, i want a image on the top instead of the map, is that possible ? Or just show the same slider as the blog has.

Thanx!

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi, sure it is. Just choose other template, rather than contact page. You can choose Header+ right sidebar. so it will be the same. Then it will have a slider by default, but just select header image and it will replace it.

Cheers :)

paullindqvist

Thanx!

I have a few other questions that i need help with

1. Special layout: Blog – blog page with sidebar and post slider, which template should i choose when i want to make my blog page ? I want my blog to be the first page.

2. I cant get my post to show on my blog page ? What am i doing wrong ?

My setting in WP is start page to be latest post, i want to set to static so it lands on the blog page with recent post as you live demo shows.

url:

http://www.paullindqvist.se/blog/

Thanx!

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hey, there is no need for blog template as it is automaticly applied to the blog. Just go to you Settings-> Reading and set “Your latest Posts” for “Front page displays” . Then first page will show posts. To assign it to you menu item blog: go to menus and remove that blog item you now have. Then you will see Custom links tab, so just enter http://paullindqvist.se/blog/ as url and title: Blog.

have a great day!

paullindqvist

Thanx now i got it! Excellent. One thing how do i change so that only a summary shows of the posts and not the full length posts on the blog ? I want it to show just a part as your live demo show, and to read the full post you press Read more.

Thanx!

There is a MORE tag in visual and also html editor, it visual it looks like page divided with dashed line. Just put it where you want your text to end and read more button to appear :)

paullindqvist

Excellent! Thanx!

I must commend you for your fast response and support!

Im sure i will come up with more questions !

Thanx again.

Hi there i am in exactly the same boat as choklate. I would love to use this theme if there is a way to change the navigation to horizontal instead of vertical.

If you could explain the work around to me also, i would appreciate it very much!

Hi man! Wonderfull site. But do you mind helping me out how to get those drop shadows on the box/block element, if I want to build a site myself? For educational reasons.

Thanks a lot Best regards Ghopi

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi, thank you :)

You should put empty div with class under the content div , for example
<div class="shadow"></div>
and in your stylesheet define background image for that class.
.shadow{background: url('shadow.png'); }

Hi have a few more questions hope that is alright ?

1. Is there a max (optimal) size for the top logo ?

2. Is there a way to remove the bottom logo ? (or is a transparent small png file best to use ?)

3.Can you change the opacity of the footer (that slides up and down) ?

Thanx

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi, sure it is

1. You can choose size you want it will be scaled automaticly to fit by size. If you want some custom size , just contact us vis profile and we will do it for you.

2. I would go for empty png, this will be the easiest way.

3.Sure, just find #sliding_footer in style.css and you will see where to change it.

Thanks

Also how do i make a custom gallery ?

Here is the scenario:

I have a blog post and at the end of it i want to make a link to a gallery relevant to the post.

Preferably i would like this page to be in 3-4 columns with medium sized images that opens in a light box when you press them.

How do i do this ?

Thanx!

MNKY
MNKY Author

Our custom gallery is just done with shortcodes, if you want 3 columns just do the following in html editor.

[column size="1-3"]
[frame align="left"]  <a href="your image url"><img src="your image url" height="170" width="260" /></a> [/frame]
[/column]

[column size="1-3"]
[frame align="none"]  <a href="your image url"><img src="your image url" height="170" width="260" /></a> [/frame]
[/column]

[column size="1-3" last="1"]
[frame align="right"]  <a href="your image url"><img src="your image url" height="170" width="260" /></a>[/frame] 
[/column]

Cheers :)

paullindqvist

Thanx for the fast reply.

I get it to work but not fully.

1. The center image is “Squeezed” it doesn’t maintain it’s ratio. How do i control that ?

2. Also when i press the i get a 404 error instead of the image expanding in a lightbox ?

3. To make gallery pages will take some work as i manually have to type in the adress to each image, or is there a easier way

4. Making portfolio page with images opening up in a lightbox when you press them is that possible, and would it be a more streamlined and faster solution to display a bunch of images on a page ?

Thanx!

MNKY
MNKY Author

1. It is because align is set to none, set it to left for example or just set smaller width for all if using on page with sidebar. 2. Think it is because links are not correct, check them once again. 3. If you make it that way, but you can also use wordpress gallery, just upload your pictures, and press choose gallery tab and press insert. 4. They open in a lightbox if you press on icon in bottom right corner. Here also, use wordpress gallery insert option if you want faster process.

Thank you!

paullindqvist

Thanx!

I tried to get portfolio to work but couldn’t get any images to show.

I create a page and choose the portfolio template (four columns) i specify the category of the portfolio service i created. I add a page under the portfolio menu and assign it to the portfolio service and set a featured image. I repeat the last step to assign more images.

What am i doing wrong ?

Also is there a way to prevent the image to open in a new window and only use lightbox effect ?

Thanx

MNKY
MNKY Author

Be sure to specify category Slug names. Doest it work if no categories are set? Well it would require some modifications, looks easy, but would require some time.

Thanks

paullindqvist

Thanx! It was the slug that was the culprit it works now.

It would be awesome if i could prevent the images from opening in a new window and just respond to the lightbox!

Thanx.

Hi!

I just found a better way to show setup my galleries, i use a plugin called awesome flickr gallery and use to make gallery pages. It is a faster way to upload photos and quite easy to add a gallery in wordpress as well.

The trouble i have now is that the plugin use a lightbox to display the photos (which i can’t turn off) it collides with fancybox. Is there a code i can write on specific flickr gallery pages that will prevent fancybox to be used on those specific pages ?

Or do you know of a good solution ?

Here is the link to the flickr plugin.

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/awesome-flickr-gallery-plugin/screenshots/

I tried installing another fancybox plugin (that have the option to use a customfield on pages to prevent fancybox from being used on those pages) but i didn’t work and i assume it collides with the fancybox used in your theme. ?

Thanx

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi, you easily can disable fancybox for images in Settings-> media. Thanks :)

paullindqvist

Hi!

Yes i know i can do that, but the i want fancybox on all other pages but the flickr gallery pages.

So that’s why i want to disable it on specific pages, is that possible by using html or custom tags ?

If not is there a way to disable the Fancybox that comes with the theme and use another fancybox plugin ?

Thanx

MNKY
MNKY Author

Well it would be a bit of cutomization. We will need to create a new template specially for use with your plugin and it will remain static, so no other of new plugins would work on it if installed. Thanks

paullindqvist

Hi!

Thanx i got it to work!!

I installed a fancybox plugin and it overrode the flickr plugin!!

This is the plugin in i used:

http://blog.moskis.net/downloads/plugins/fancybox-for-wordpress/

I will use flickr to make galleries it’s faster and easier then short codes or portfolio.

Thanx very much for your dedicated support!

Hi MNKY ,

1) Is it possible to turn on sidebars on my portfolio pages?

2) can I customize width of portfolio page? As you can see here: http://themeforest.net/item/big-city-personal-and-blog-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/309410, the text is only on a half of the page. How can I customize it?

Thanks for your help and great support!

Hi :)

1. By default portfolio pages do not have sidebar. So you will have to modify template of any portfolio php to insert sidebar and change column sizes, shadows in css. If you want do do it , we can tell you how. Or you can send us message via profile with what you want and we will try to do it for you.

2. This one is much easier, you just have to find the following on line 358 in style.css and change width to 100%
.portfolio_details {width:50%; margin-top:20px;}

Cheers

Hello,

I bought the theme.. and I’m very satisfied with it.

I have a couple of questions:

1.how do I make an image slider in a post/page, like the one shown in the demo (e.g.The city That never sleeps article)

2. what’s the shortcode for making a lightbox showcase like in the demo.

when i use the media shortcode it only inserts the video..

i want to make a button/hyperlink like the one in the example (e.g. click me to watch it in lightbox”

thanks and keep up the good work

MNKY

Hi, very glad you enjoy our theme :)

1. This is a Content Slider shortcode, it is a last one in our dropdown panel. So just select it and change cat (post category to show) and show (number of post to show) settings. It will take raw post content to slide. In preview these are just 3 posts with no title and text, just picture inserted.

2. This is just a simple link, and if autodetect is enabled in Settings->Media for video it will automaticly open in lightbox.
<a href="http://vimeo.com/14821961">Click me to Watch it in lightbox</a>

Thank you!

2 worked very well.. thanks

regarding #1, that means that I can’t make a mini-sliding photo galery as I was thinking, right?

I know that… but it’s too complicated and it’s not worth the effort if I have a big gallery.

I’ll play more with the theme and if I have any further questions, I will ask you.
