Hi there. I love the theme, it looks great. Unfortunately, after using it for a while now I’ve encountered a weird bug or error that is occurring on my website revolving around searches.

Basically, the search engine bugs out when you type in certain terms, and there’s no apparent rhyme or reason to the bug. Here’s an example link from the site: http://bit.ly/1fEHfun. As you can see, from the start posts are bleeding over each other and overlapping. The problem goes all the way to the bottom of the page just above the footer, where the overlapping even covers up the pagination.

I use the layout in masonry format and certain searches do work properly. I know nothing about code, but I suspect the issue may be caused by the post formatting. Your theme allows me to embed a Soundcloud track or a video that is listenable/viewable from the main page without entering the post. There are also standard posts…however, over the 3+ years of my blog I’ve used a few layouts, and every one utilized different formats. It seems like any post made before swapping to your theme is bugging out, for starters. It may be more than that, or not that at all, but that’s how it seems at any rate.

Hopefully you can help!

Hmm, it looks like this is happening on audio posts because we expect the iframe to be there and we are pulling it up for aesthetic purposes.

Try adding this to your Theme Options -> Custom CSS:

.entry-audio{ margin-top: 0; }

Let me know if that works

Default-user

That does fix it, but it kind of kills most of the reason I wanted the theme to begin with. It looks much better pulled up into the image instead of pulled down by itself.

If it’s gonna be standing out free form like this (below the image) with the margin change then it’d be easier just to attach it to the end of posts.

Is there no way to maintain the look as is and correct the problem?

Default-user

As an update, the code you gave me:

.entry-audio{ margin-top: 0; }

actually causes the main page to break in the same way.

While it fixed the search for most items (and stopped the overlapping and allowed one to see the pagination), this code actually causes the front page posts to extend over the pagination so that you cannot see older posts. I hadn’t noticed it when I added it, but I received a couple messages about it after the fact.

Is there no way to fix this? It is supposed to work with Soundcloud out of the box, but obviously there is some issue when you have multiple Soundcloud embedded posts. I will have to revert back to an older theme if we can’t figure it out.

Default-user

Actually…

I don’t believe it’s a Soundcloud issue. I swapped all my posts to standard format and they are still overlapping on certain random pages. I’m not sure what the issue could be though.

I’ve disabled all plugins outside of the ones that came with the theme but even with that I’m still getting the same issue. Any ideas?

bluthemes_

Ok, I see.. try adding this as well as the other one, it should push the content below it by the same amount of pixels so it shouldn’t overlap..

.format-audio {
    margin-bottom: 35px !important;
}
Default-user

That still doesn’t fix it, unfortunately.

I’ve struggled back and forth with this thing sporadically for a few days. At first, we thought it was the Soundcloud embeds, yes? It’s not those, though, at least not entirely.

The thing I have seen the most improvement out of has been disabling the “post excerpt” feature in the blog panel. With it on, starting on page two of my site the posts begin running together and covering up pagination. With it disabled (and me adding manual “read more” links instead), the normal frontpage pagination is fine all the way through from the first page of my blog to the end. It still does not work on the website search, however. They still run together just like they were before.

So “Enable post excerpts” is some part of the problem. The second part of the problem appears to lie in masonry layout. If I swap to full width posts on each page with a sidebar I have no issues on any page whether searching for a term or accessing from the homepage via pagination. However, I run the website with two columns plus a sidebar…swapping back to that leaves me with the issues we’ve been discussing.

My main question for you is whether or not this issue is with Bliss across the board? I am thinking it is, and that its not just my website because I’ve discovered it on at least one other site using Bliss..

I can replicate the issue I’m having with http://bit.ly/1gN0Eav – one of your live demo examples – on that sites’ homepage. They are running three columns and a sidebar on their site. The first time you load it, the posts overlap and run together (often covering the pagination). Sometimes after you refresh the page, it goes away. Sometimes refreshing makes it even worse. This is the exactly same issue I have. If you check your other “live demo” examples, most are single column with a sidebar and there are no issues on any of them. The problem now is finding where the actual problem is between the post excerpts and the multiple columns/masonry layout so that we can make it work.

bluthemes_

I have an idea, this is most definitely the masonry layout, it looks like it’s not finishing it’s layout. So. The first thing that comes to my mind is that we could trigger the layout load on the masonry objects at the very end.

I have a new theme javascript file for you, could you sign up to our support forum and make a new thread about this, and I’ll reply with a link to the new file. I tested it and it does trigger the layout, but I’m not experiencing the problem so I can’t be sure unless you be my tester :)

Default-user

That sounds great. I hope it works as well.

I’m signed up to the support forum and the thread is up there, so toss up the code when you get a chance. Thanks!

bluthemes_

Done! :)

Hello,

Just want to ask if this is compatible with the latest Bootstrap version and what is the Bootstrap version being used?

Hoping for a quick response.

Cheers, Mark

bluthemes_

Hi, no Bliss is actually Bootstrap 2. Our newer themes, Bliss & Vivid have the latest Bootstrap 3

Default-user

So you have a new Bliss theme that has Bootstrap 3?

bluthemes_

Ahh sorry my mistake, I meant Breeze and Vivid ;)

We don’t have a shortcode for adding a contact form, we recommend Contact Form 7 for all your Contact Form needs.

Hi Arnar,

Thanks for your great theme. I have a quick question about feature slider. Do you have any plan to update the slider to be auto-slide for this theme? Or what should I do to change the code for adding auto script?

I think it’s too static for me.

Thanks bank

Hi, I just got the theme and I really like it! I just have no idea where to access the shortcodes when I am putting together my posts. Can you help me out? Thanks!

bluthemes_

You need to install bluthcodes to access the shortcodes, it’s in the plugins directory that came within the zip file you downloaded.

Hi are you going to introduce woocommerce integration?

I’m having a hard time trying to integrate bliss with a simple items catalog, using woocommerce, as you can see here http://www.unagenova.com/sito/categoria-ospiti/vecchi-amici/

I don’t know how to remove the archive column which appears below the catalog and that cannot be found anywhere in wordpress backend

bluthemes_

Hi, did you find out how to remove it? I can’t see it anywhere on that page.

hadex1 Purchased

yes I did remove the unwanted column, but I still have to figure out how to make the normal column appear

It would be useful to have full woocommerce integration by default on the theme

Hi, is there any Google Maps shortcode?

No we don’t have a google maps plugin, I recommend you search for a plugin that does this, I believe there are many available :)

Hi,

I am considering purchasing this theme. I have two questions:

1) Is it possible to create pages in this theme and set them to not display in the top menu? For example, if I wanted to link to a “resources” page from another page but not have “resources” display in top nav.

2) Is it possible to disable comments for certain pages and not others? For example, can I turn off comments on my “about” page? Or is it possible to disable comments on all non-post pages?

Thanks for your help.

Emily

Hey Emily, sorry for the late reply!

These are both native WordPress functions, so yeah you can do this :)

Bliss vs. Breeze vs. Vivid, what are the differences?

bluthemes_

Wow, that’s a big question. Honestly we just try and tell people to go with what they feel suits them, we try to keep all of our themes up to date with the newest standards of course. Bliss has a bit of an older Bootstrap framework. Vivid is the most customizable, but Breeze is almost equally customizable but with a completely different menu options for example.

Best Regards, Arnar

Hello,

First of all I would like to mention that its a great template. I will use it as my personal blog. However I want to remove navigation menu area. Can you please express me how can I do that?

Also I will only use tags for differentiating posts. I will not use category part. How can I remove category section in the post area. ( Between dates and comments )

bluthemes_

Hello,

Thank you.

Go to appearance > menus

and uncheck the main navigation field.

Go to theme options and put this code in custom css.

.post-meta ul li:nth-child(3), .post-meta ul li:nth-child(2) { display: none; }

Hi ! Nice theme, I really like it. I just have a few questions : Is that possible to add an email subscription right under the menu ? And if so, is that easy to do ?

Also wondering : is it possible to remove (or mask) the search button ?

And last but not least : is it possible to customize the icons to make them suit the categories I want? I saw that there is pin, twitter logo, facebook logo… Can I choose whatever icon I want to appear in the head of the post ?

Thanks a lot ^^

bluthemes_

Hello,

Thank you.

1.If you find a plugin with a shortcode, you can put the shortcode in Ad spot #3, go to theme options > advertising and find Ad spot #3 – Above the content, and click on Shortcode or HTML code like Adsense and paste the shortcode there.

2. Go to theme options and choose header & menu, scroll down and you will find “Show search in header” Uncheck this to remove the search input from the header.

3. Yes you can choose what icon you want to display, in the header of the post.

Is there a way to make images circular similar to how they are done in Breeze?

bluthemes_

Hello,

Yes :)

JustinOReilly

How would you do it? I tried importing that post out of the demo content for breeze but that didn’t seem to work it was still a square image

bluthemes_

Ah sorry, my bad, it isn’t in there. You can achieve the effect though by hovering over your image, pressing the edit button (the image icon) and going to Advanced Options and placing this code in the styles input:

border-radius: 500px!important;

Been using the theme for a while now and I am still happy with it. Just a question about the categories on top of a post. They are seperated by a comma and after the last categorie there is still a comma which looks weird. I would prefer the categories listed above the post without a comma in between. How can I change that?

bluthemes_

Hello,

Do you want the categories above the post title and the date and comment count below?

Default-user

No, the categories, date and comment counts are fine where they are. I just want the commas that seperate the names of the categories removed. As there is also a comma at the end of the categories and it looks ugly…

bluthemes_

I understand, if you email me at support@bluthemes.com I’ll send you a fixed file that takes care of that last comma.

Hi,

Fantastic theme! There’s only one question with regards to MailChimp Newsletter. I have multiple lists the user can signup for (whole country or specific cities) could you please include the option for the end user to select which lists they’d like to sign up with?

Thank you!

I will put this on to do list, but these feature requests are not a priority.

Hi BlueThemes,

I have explored all your themes and I really like them all especially vivid and Bliss. I am planning to buy Bliss but before I would like your feedback on following..

1) I see all your themes have About US/Contact page in their Demos but I cant find it in Bliss demo? Is it hidden or not the part of package?

2) Your theme is PERFECT fit for ‘Personal blogging’ category. Only thing it is missing is a ‘About Me (Resume)’ page which many other themes offer in the package. Do you guys have any plans for that!

Thank you.

bluthemes_

Hello,

1) It is not in the demo, but there is no problem for you to create about us/contact page in Bliss. We plan on adding official support for contact form 7 plugin in the near future.

2) We are working on updating demo content for Bliss.
