Hello,

I would like to like to add characters to separate my menus in the navigation bar and would like to know how to go about adding this code? I would like to add dots in between my menus such as the one seen on the following website: http://www.thirtysomethingfashion.com

Also how can I center this custom navigation bar? Thank you.

Hello,

You can add background image for the menu item
#header-widget-area .widget_nav_menu ul  li {background:url(images/css/category-ico.png) no-repeat 0px 0px;}
Replace category-ico.png with your dot image. To center, change position for whole
#header-widget-area

Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks, I was able to center the navigation bar but now it shows above my logo instead of below. How can I change it so that it shows below my logo?

Hello,

Another question: In the primary widget area I have added the categories widget, however it shows actual folder icons before each category on my website page. I would like to remove the folder icon and have only the names of each category. Where can I go to make this change?

Thanks again,

Just remove this from style.css:
.widget_categories a{padding-left:25px; background:url(images/css/category-ico.png) no-repeat 0px 0px;}
Thanks!

Thanks, it worked!

Hi there, would it be possible to have a fullwidth background image with this theme? THX Cecil

Default-user

How was your little testing? And yes, it would be great to get access to a test platform. And would it be possible to use widgets in the header?

Hi,

Have not done some in-depth tests, but all installed and some basic functions worked fine. Just send us a private message via profile, so you can test plugins and theme as you plan using them.

Sure, we have top widget area.

Thanks!

i sent the private message, hope you got it. THX!

Hello,

It is a very nice theme and I enjoy using it. I have two issues when viewing a site on a mobile device.

1. The background is covered in blue question marks instead of being plain white from the theme settings.

2. Images and captions do not scale and instead overflow the edge of the content div. This looks ugly and makes it hard for visitors to view images.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Joe

Hello,

1. In theme options go to mobile settings, set background for mobile phones there.

2. Add this to style.css

img {max-width:100% !important;}

Thanks!

Default-user

Thanks. I found that the problem with image scaling occurs only when I have a caption on the image. Without a caption it displays correctly.

In the theme options I have no option for background in the mobile settings tab, only ‘enable responsive design’. I am using version 3.1.

Hi,

1. In style.css delete this line:
.wp-caption img {margin: 5px 5px 0;}

and change 

max-width: 632px !important;
to
max-width: 622px !important;

on line above

2. Sorry, I thought you were talking about The Blog theme, my bad. Make sure, there is no image file uploaded as background improperly, which results question marks. Also this can be some kind of flash or script you are running on website.

Thanks!

Hi MNKY,

I am attempting to use the Post Slider in the theme, and when I choose it, and provide it with a category to display, it just shows a blank window regardless of which settings I choose.

Is it safe to assume that I should be able to pick a “Featured” category and say give it 5 items and it will display 5 items from that category in the slider? Do I need to specify the post id’s as well or can I do just the category?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there,

I did specify the post id. Here is a screenshot of the post slider settings I used.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/118434/slider.png

I loaded the sample data from your XML file as well and category 2 is the blog category.

Here is the test site where I’m staging this: http://www.wamesh.com. You can see what I mean.

Thanks!

You have set post slider to show thumbnails only, in demo we have both. For thumbnails to display, you have to set featured images for your posts.

Thanks!

Hello,

1. I would like to add a dot/disc to separate each page title in my navigation bar. Where must I make the change?

Hi,

Where I can find the child theme folder? I Can’t see it in the zip. Thank you!

Also your page sidebar says “last update: february 2013” but description says “april 2013”. I think it’s you have forgotten to update this. I downloaded from here and it says version 3.1 upon installation. which is the last one?

Default-user

And maybe for a next version, using .po files for translation could be easier! Instead of an all page with fields in the admin. ;)

New tip: for a correct rendering on retina display with cufon fonts you should include this cufon js file instead: https://github.com/sorccu/cufon/blob/master/js/cufon.js

Hi, just purchased this theme and quite enjoy it so far. While making test posts however I have noticed that the post titles will only display roman characters, not Chinese characters. Is there anyway to change this?

http://taiwanintern.com/

You can see on the right in recent posts, the Chinese is displayed, but not in the header.

Thanks very much!

I would like to make the contact page Full Width, without sidebar.

I tried to remove the sidebar code in the template contacts page, but it also calls the template loop page. Which means take the width from the id #content. Can’t change this otherwise it will change all the pages.

I guess the solution is to create a new template page ? eg: loop contact page with a specific id for the content?

Woops! EDIT: just found out :) change the ID before the call of the template_part, to” content-full”

Hops this will help others!

HI,

I see in the User Guide that the panel should be located in settings > shortcodes, but I don’t seem to have this panel.

I’m in the process of going through the past 50 pages of questions/comments, and collecting all of the useful advice you’ve given over the last two years into an organized word file. Perhaps I will send it to you when I’m done, as it’s a great resource!

Thanks!

I’m running 3.0 right now. Is there a huge difference between 3.0 and 3.1? What is the change log? What files will it overwrite if I upgrade? Thanks!

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hello,

There is no big difference, there were some bug fixes. Sorry, we do not have change log for that update, have accidentally deleted it, if you want to update, update whole theme. Next releases will have update log, but we plan another big updated for next release, so whole theme may need to be updated.

Thank you!

Hi, I’ve finally stopped wimping out and upgraded to 3.1 and of course it’s gone wrong somehow! I uploaded through FTP and the site seems to be loading fine, no problems within the Wordpress dashboard. However, after a few seconds I’m getting this message on screen “Fatal error: Theme CSS could not load after 20 sec. Please download the latest theme at http://galleria.io/customer/"

I unzipped the file and loaded manually so really not sure why this is happening.

Can you help?

Thanks

Hi,

This error message and link is not from our theme. Do you have other theme activated?
