Bought it and loving it. Just two things:

The picture of the author in a post isn’t working. (So not the widget, but the Author you can change in Theme Options).

How do I change the font? I know I can do that in Theme Options, but I can’t change the font automatically and see what I’m changing through a preview. Maybe you could make some kind of preview, because now I’m just hoping the font comes out nicely. I just changed it to Helvetica, but maybe there would be a better option out there I don’t know off. Do you get what I’m trying to explain. Not my first language :-)

Also wondering how I can change the language to Dutch. Doing it with Poedit and the instructions didn’t work. Only get English and some Eastern European (?) language.

Default-user

Figured the language out. Didn’t know I had to translate myself.

Default-user

Ok, so now I really need help. Tried to change the language. Did everything the guy in the video said but now my website won’t open anymore. I had to change something in the wp-config.php so I think the issue is there!

Hey Mickster

We are aware of the font problem, it’s a simple javascript error that’s destroying the functionality behind the edit button, I can send you the file that fixes it if you send us an email at bluth@bluth.is, I’ll be releaseing it in the next update as well.

I’d recommend you rename your wp-config.php file and set up a new one if the old one is corrupt and you don’t trust yourself enough to fix it, don’t delete it though! Be cautious though that you put in the same database and prefix that the old wp-config file had, so you will have all of your content again.

If you don’t want to do it this way, then try and undo the things you did, did you leave out a comma or a semicolon or something that’s causing a problem? PHP can be very unforgiving :)

Sorry, forgot to address the author image problem, I’m not sure what you mean though, Wordpress uses the avatars from Gratavar.com and we’re not offering an image upload for the author image, except the image cover which shows up below each post above the author’s avatar. Have you set up your avatar @ gravatar?

Default-user

Hi!

When I go to Appearances then Theme Options and then Author Box Image I can upload a picture there. The author box is working beneath a post but the picture isn’t. It’s corrpupted. That what I meant :-)

Also have different ‘issue’. I would like to change the colour of the menu. I would like to have a light blue colour (where the logo is) above the white menu. How do I do that?

And last but not least. How do I change the English language in a Dutch language at an error page? And also for the SEARCH. I would like to change that into Dutch.

Kind regards!

Default-user

Also I can’t get the Video or Audio page right. It goes over the title/text. Standard is working just fine.

bluthemes_

Have you tried uploading the image again? Or a different image? If it’s corrupt then it may be a problem with your wordpress installation because we are using the native WordPress uploader. Can you post a link to your webpage so I can see this? If you don’t want to post it here you can send it to me at bluth@bluth.is

The custom color functionality is broken in the current v.1.02 because of a simple javascript error, but I just uploaded a v.1.1 with tons of fixes and a bunch of adds, I recommend you update to the newest version and then go to Theme Options -> Colors & Fonts and check the “Custom Color Theme” option, then you can customize your own color theme :)

The new version v1.1 has the option to change the “Search..” text language in the header.

I’m not sure what your problem is with the Video and Audio page, again it would really help to get a link to your page to see it in action :)

V1.1 is awesome! Awesome suppert too :-D

Hi, love the theme!

When set post to “image” once viewing the post, the image is still clickable, however, it wont open large when clicked.

any way to allow for the image to open large once clicked? thanks.

bluthemes_

Hi quintessamedia!

I’ll add that option in the Theme Options for the next update, I’ll try and finish it within a couple of days, I will let you know when it’s live here on ThemeForest :)

quintessamedia

Many thanks! that will be a great feature. I would recommend to have a “Tick” box option in the post to chose if the image should open as lightbox or link should be disabled.

bluthemes_

Yeah, we’ll definitely do that! Thanks for a great idea :)

bluthemes_

Hey quintessamedia!

We just added the new v.1.1 update in and it has the lightbox feature you requested! Really hope you like it :)

Cannot begin to tell you how much I love this Theme. Being able to embed fb and twitter posts so easily in 1.1 is excellent. Will post the link here once the page is officially up and running…

bluthemes_

I am thrilled to hear! We are very excited about the new Twitter and Facebook status abilities as well and can’t wait to show them off in the demo! ;)

Jesus… You guys really nailed it on the head… Incredible work. As I go along the setup of the theme everything is done right. Easy instructions, options, and just incredible design. GREAT JOB!!! All the features I look for.

bluthemes_

Thank you so much! Really happy that you love it! :)

2 Quick questions: How do I upload the picture in my widgets?? The upload button isn’t clickable.

What’s the img size of the picture behind the profile picture under the posts. The long rectangle?

Thanks

PS, tried to make a ticket for this but wasnt emailing me a log in.

bluthemes_

Ah, I see the mistake, thanks for pointing this out. I’m going to release a minor update later today and include this fix. If you want to dive into the code and fix it yourself it’s a really simple one, it’s in bliss/functions.php, all the way down to the bottom where the wp_enqueue_script() function is where it says:

.. array( ‘jquery’, ‘cf-post-formats’ ) ..

change it to

.. array( ‘jquery’ ) ..

The image’s height is 90px but the width is fluid, so I recommend making a larger than 90px image because the min-width will always be 100% of the box itself, also it depends on weither you are using the full-width template in a post or if you have a sidebar, I honestly pictured this being used solely as a random background image to brighten up the page itself, but if you want to add some content in it then maybe it’s not a bad idea to make it more accessible to that kind of modifications :)

Hi Arnar,

Well, I tried switching out the code but now my widgets are not draggable nor can I open them. I switched the code back and they still didn’t work. I’m not sure what I did. I just switched out that code.

bluthemes_

Hmm, that’s not good. There’s probably a javascript error somewhere in the admin panel that’s wreaking havoc, I recommend you install a fresh v1.1 of the theme if this is still a bug. There’s a new v1.11 update coming later today that fixes the original upload problem though, I can notify you when it’s live here on ThemeForest :)

bluthemes_

The v1.11 update is live! I realized why that code above produces an error, it’s because the comma’s here on ThemeForest aren’t the same as the ones I’m writing, so it was crashing the javascript. Good to know for future support that we can’t write code here on the comment that works ;)

Default-user

Tried version 1.11 and it still wont work. Can I email you my login?

bluthemes_

Yes you can e-mail us at bluth@bluth.is I’ll check it out right now!

Hi, it is a great theme. I have one question: the theme comes with only one image background and how can I get other picture backgrounds in the demo? I really love them. Thanks

Default-user

I got them. No worries.

The Author Widget doesn’t allow me to upload the author picture. The buttons are clickable, but not actually allowing users to upload.

bluthemes_

Hey raystone, I’ve actually fixed this, I’m going to release a v1.11 update today that includes the fix, sorry for the inconvenience :)

bluthemes_

The v1.11 release is live right now with a fix to this problem :)

Hi Arnar,

“Well, I tried switching out the code but now my widgets are not draggable nor can I open them. I switched the code back and they still didn’t work. I’m not sure what I did. I just switched out that code.”

I also have this problem….My widgets are not draggable after changing code…

bluthemes_

Hey interactivestudio, try putting in the “old” file from the theme zip again and you should be able to revert the problem. I’m in full steam to release the v1.11 update that fixes the problem, I’ll let you know!

bluthemes_

The v1.11 release has been uploaded and is live on TF right now, it fixes this problem :)

Can’t see the sidebar on posts…Please help me with this issue.

bluthemes_

Hey marian, have you updated to the newest (v.1.1.2) version of Bliss? This was an issue regarding the Bluth Newsletter widget and was fixed in the newest update :)

Default-user

I’m using 1.12, I solved that with some code, but now there’s a problem with the menu.Check www.marianpc.eu

bluthemes_

Ah, this is caused by an old version of the BluthCodes plug-in, the new update also ships with a new version that you should install :)

Did v1.1.2 not fix the sidebar problem you were having? Can you tell me what fixed it?

Default-user

I did a brute change to say…I mean, I didn’t use the var post_layout, but instead the layout with ‘sidebar_right’.I think it’s a tiny bug with the function blis_sidebar etc., but I didn’t looked after it.

Ok, thanks for all, I will upadte the plugins.

Update…The nice effects aren’t working in the menus.

bluthemes_

Hmm.. it looks like you’re getting a 400 Bad Request error from Google Ads, it could be that it is crashing the JS, try disabling the HTML widget you’re using for Google ads and see if that works.

Default-user

Ok, so the problem it’s when we deactivate the sticky header.There isn’t loadind a part of the javascript(JQUERY), more specifically the nav line function and so on.That’s a bug I suppose.Hope it helps!

bluthemes_

Ah! Found it and fixed it, thank you for pointing this out, if you e-mail us at bluth@bluth.is I can send you the corrected file. I’ll release it with the next update as well

Could you put some sort of thumbs up feature? Like MOZ’s blog?

Thanks,

bluthemes_

Hey Alex

I’ll add this to the theme in a later update, I’ll probably use a plug-in and style it to fit the theme, so you wouldn’t lose all of the data if you decide to switch themes, and could possibly use it with other themes as well, so I’ll let you know as soon as I’m more familiar with the concept :)

Hi,

I love your theme but I have a question : is it possible to feature a video on top of the right sidebar instead of a post ? (or to feature a video post)

Thanks !

Bonakor

That’s a great idea! I’ll add it to my to-do list and release it with an update, thanks a lot for your input Bonakor! :)

We just released an update, so it’ll probably be sometime in the next week :)

Hey bonakor, just wanted to let you know that now the Featured Box shows the video if it’s a video post, also I added the option to display multiple featured posts within a slider in the same box :)

Hi again,

I have positioned a revslider on the homepage of your theme which works brilliantly. I have set it to display on the “Frontpage” only and everything looks good! :bigsmile:

One thing however, is there anyway to only get it to display on the first “frontpage”? At the moment if I click through to second, third or forth archive pages it also displays here.

Cheers for the help.

Dave

PS. I contacted you a five days ago about a bug when using manual excerpts and you corrected it for me by modify the code within single.php. However, that bug still persists for audio and video posts. It is easily rectified using the same code for the original fix. Just thought you might want to know so you could correct it for single-audio.php and single-video.php also.

Thanks again for a great theme!

bluthemes_

Hey again, Dave!

This is definitely a valid point, I’ll take a look at it! Thanks!

PS. Doh! I didn’t realize this, I’ll fix it right now and put it in the next update, thanks a lot for the pointers! ;)

Is it possible to have the author’s name in each of his posts linking to a page with all his posts? live preview doesn’t show it. Thanks.

bluthemes_

Hey andr3braga, currently there’s just the author box at the bottom, but I could try and find a place for the author badge in the front page and set it as an option, that’s not a bad idea, I’ll put it on my to-do list! Thanks for the idea! :)

Default-user

That’s good to know, the author box is good enough :). One more question: is it possible to display the social media icons on the posts on the front page? I’m between bliss and keilir (loving bluth), but keilir is much better detailed on Features.

bluthemes_

Yeah that’s actually an option you can pick, you can even put those bad boys on a page if you’d like. I know the features aren’t detailed enough, we are focusing on the updates right now and juggling that with the demo page content. I’ll probably update the demo page a bit with a more detailed list of features when the new update is out :)

bluthemes_

Hey andr3braga, just wanted to let you know that the option you suggested to have an authors name in each of his posts linking to a page with all his posts has been implemented in v2.0 :)

Body font size and space between lines are too big for me. It’s possible to change it using admin panel and having a good result? Thanks.

bluthemes_

Hi, You can paste the following css in the custom css tab of the theme options to alter the font-size and line-height for the posts.

.entry-content p{
 font-size: 16px;
line-height: 1.75;

Very nice theme first of all! :)

I have a question about the icons below a post how do i change the color of it? The share buttons.

Thanks!

bluthemes_

Hi SilverAqua, thanks!

Currently there isn’t an option for doing so but you could put this in the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel to change it:

footer.entry-meta ul a{ color: red; }

Hope this helps :)

Hello !

Is it possible to have “Category A” displaying posts in 2 columns and “Category B” displaying posts in 1 colum?

bluthemes_

Hi, djvitamin! It’s not possible at the moment, I’m not a 100% sure what you mean by this. Would you like two columns to appear and then one below if it’s a particular category/post-format?

Best Regards, Arnar

Default-user

I would like to have Frontpage with two columns, and Blog Page with single column design

bluthemes_

So you would like to be able to convert a page into a two-column blog you mean? And have the blog itself separate?

For example:

I would like to show my frontpage in 2 column mode: http://djvitamin.com/
And category listing in single column mode: http://djvitamin.com/dj-mix/

Hi, any plan on make it RETINA ready? Thanks

bluthemes_

Yeah, we are actually looking in to this right now, I’ll keep you posted on updates regarding RETINA support :)

  • Bought between 10 and 49 items

Hi ! Just bought the theme. I love it. I tried using an image for the background, but I would like to know the size of the image to use because right now the theme is squashing the image instead of scaling it. I settled on (temporarily) using a pattern instead.

Also, sometimes a post icon will overlap with the post title. Is there something that I can do (if anything) to prevent that (for example, look here http://nouvelleorange.com/)

Also, why isn’t the video type of blog post not working properly ? (example: http://nouvelleorange.com/visionner-la-plaza/)

P.S. : I’m also very interested in having a retina ready version of this theme :) I have a Macbook Pro Retina.

Thank you much :)

carlpruneau

Also, why do Quote post lead to the “Page not found” page ?

bluthemes_

Hi carlpruneau!

1. The reason we do it this way is to ensure that all browsers can see the background image. There is a better way doing this with some CSS but then older browsers won’t support it, I’ll add an option in the next update to fix this though so at least you can pick that way instead.

2. I already fixed this for the next update, it was just a matter of a bit of padding here and there :)

3. You have to put in the embedded code from youtube. Go to your YT video and press the “Share” button and then “Embed” and there’s the code you should put in the field for this to work properly :)

4. I’m actually making the theme retina ready right now due to popular demand, this will be released in the next update :)

5. The Page not found in the Quote post is baffling me.. I’ve seen this before but I’ve never managed to reproduce this, I’m thinking this is a CF-Post-Formats bug, but I’m working on trying to fix this. Does this happen to all Quote posts you make? It looks like it doesn’t have a name and that could be interfering with WP and how it creates a slug for the post.

Let me know if any of this helps and if there’s anything else I can answer for you :)

Best Regards, Arnar

carlpruneau

First of all, I commend you for your excellent customers support. That’s how you keep a living fanbase.

1. So is there a size I should use for my image so it gets to be shown correctly as background image or is this dependent on the user’s screen size/resolution ? I’m using Photoshop and Pixelmator so cropping and resizing images isn’t an arcane science for me :)

2.Coolness

3.Now fixed with your explanations. Thank you :)

4. That’s great !

5. I hadn’t been using a source name or a source url, indeed. I now know that the name of the source will be shown as the author of the quote. Cool. But, might I suggest that if the user doesn’t input a source url, that the post shouldn’t have a link ? Just a box with the text ? Because I don’t always want to link the quote with a previous blog post.

With that being said, I’m hard at work on translation the english .po file to French. If you want it, I can send it to you so you can pack it in a future update.

bluthemes_

Thanks! We do our best :)

1. I guess you should make it pretty large ( 1600×1200 ) if it’s not a blurry photo or anything ( if it’s blurry you can get away with making it smaller ). Just watch out that it doesn’t exceed 500kb in your export ( I recommend “Save for Web” and turn the quality down ), otherwise it’s going to take a while to load and people visiting your webpage probably don’t appreciate those extra loading times ( I know I’m ruthless when it comes to that ). While writing this I actually found a great way for the background-image to appear without damaging it for older browsers, I won’t bore you with details but you can put this code in the Theme Options -> Custom CSS and it should be fine, I’ve already added this to the new version of the theme :)

.bl_background{
  position: fixed;
  z-index: -1;
  top: -50%; 
  left: -50%; 
  width: 200%; 
  height: 200%;
}
.bl_background img{
  position: absolute; 
  top: 0; 
  left: 0; 
  right: 0; 
  bottom: 0; 
  margin: auto; 
  min-width: 50%;
  min-height: 50%;
}

5. Thank you for explaining that issue for me, I am sincerely grateful it was a dreadful problem! I’m going to do exactly what you suggested :)

We would looove a French .po file with the theme, you can e-mail us at bluth@bluth.is! Thank you so much! :)

Best Regards, Arnar

carlpruneau

Thank you for the informations. I’ll send you the .po file once it’s done. I’ll also wait for the next update to use an image as background because after browsing the web for a bit, it seems indeed that the size of the image is dependent on the screen resolution of visitors. Hence the need for proper scaling. (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3147992/set-background-image-according-to-screen-resolution)

Thank you for this excellent theme. I love it and the admin panel is fantastic too. The only thing I would like to change right now is the height of the images in blog posts – they are all cropped to a 16×9(ish?) format rather than the original 3×2 of the actual photo. Is there an easy way to change this?

bluthemes_

Hi garethbentley! Thanks for the kind words! :)

You can alter the code, but I strongly recommend you don’t, we are cropping the images so that they appear correctly, you can set the option in Theme Options to display the image when you click on it instead of showing you the post itself. Would that solve the problem?

If you change the dimensions of the image, then it’s probably going to look pretty bad. Also if you change the code, you’ll always lose the changes when you install an update and will have to redo them, so you’re just going to have a bad time all together :(

Default-user

Hi There. Thanks for your reply although I am a little disappointed as I had hoped to use this theme for my photography blog. A major part of photography is the framing of the image and having it auto-cropped top and bottom ruins that composition I feel. That said, I do understand design-wise that a post looks better with a 16×9 crop.

I also tried to register for your support forum but keep getting the message: “Sorry, but that item purchase code is invalid. Please make sure you have entered the correct purchase code.” I have entered the correct purchase code from the license certificate.

Thanks

bluthemes_

Hi again, I understand. I’m going to try and find a solution to this and report back to you, maybe I could have an option to have forced 4:3 images in the header or something in that direction. I’ll let you know how it goes!

About the support forum: My colleague, Ívar, was working on this all night long and I think he fixed it :)

Default-user

That would be awesome if possible! Even if there is a temporary way to do it asap that would fantastic for me as I love everything else about the theme – I have been looking for something like this for a long time and I would implement it tomorrow if possible. No worries on the support forum. Thank you for considering this!

bluthemes_

No problem! I’m looking into this and I’ll let you know :)

bluthemes_

Hey, I added this in the new v2.0 update if you haven’t already noticed. So your images should now appear as they are if you check the appropriate option in the Theme Options :)

Arnar
