Hi,

For some reason the ‘Gallery’ post type is not working for me. When I specify a post as type ‘gallery’ it shows a box above the editor with all the images that are included in the post but at the frontend, it shows ONLY the featured image of the post and when you click the featured image, just the featured image opens in a lightbox. The rest of the images included in the gallery are nowhere.

I couldn’t find any reference to a gallery post in the document or the comments.

What am I doing wrong please ?

Sean.

Hey there Sean

CF-Post-Formats has been a pain because of this actually, if you want to make a gallery post you’ll have to upload the items individually, we’re not sure why this happens as we are not the authors of the plug-in, but this is probably the cause of your problem.

Let me know if that helps,
Best Regards, Arnar

For ajax loading, install the JetPack plugin and activate the Infinite Scrolling part.

The facebook like button is just a plug-in and some customization away from you, I suggest you modify the core (or use a child theme preferably) or hire a freelancer to do a more customized alteration of the theme :)

thank you for help.

i got this error for infity scroll At this time, your theme, Bliss by Bluth Company, doesn’t support Infinite Scroll. Unlike other Jetpack modules, Infinite Scroll needs information from your theme to function properly.

Until your theme supports Infinite Scroll, you won’t be able to activate this module.

If you are a theme author, you can learn about adding support for Infinite Scroll at http://jetpack.me/support/infinite-scroll/.

bluthemes_

Put this in line ~ 20 in bliss/functions.php under function blu_custom_theme_setup() {

add_theme_support( 'infinite-scroll', array(        
    'container' => 'content',        
    'footer' => false,      
) );

I’ll include this in the next update as well

Hi I just bot the theme and I am very excited! I do have one question: How can I add two ads, one a leaderboard and one like a smaller rectangle kind of like http://developerdrive.com

bluthemes_

It’s actually a font type so it’s 25px in font-size (a font from fontello.com)

grantkessler

Thanks! Also I wanted add another icon next to the search icon. I wanted to make it similar to the search icon, do you think that you can tell me where you got the icon from so I can get an icon with similar style.

bluthemes_

We got all our fonts from fontello.com, it’s a custom pick, you can look at bliss/assets/css/fontello.css to see the names of them all and search for them on fontello.com

Hi, great Theme, love it. But one Question, is it possible to make the featured-slider touch-compatible? Or to auto-slide? (Both would be perfect :)) At the moment it is a little bit hard to recognize that it is a slider on a Tablet.

Thanks and Cheers Dirk

PS: Your Theme is used at www.r-gnath.de

bluthemes_

That’s a great idea, we are actually using a fantastic touch slider in our newest theme, Particle. I’ll merge that feature over to Bliss and put it in the next update!

Best Regards, Arnar

FYI minor bug: Facebook icon jumps 1px on hover in Chrome (but not in Firefox).

bluthemes_

That’s very interesting, we haven’t really thought about Bliss being a business site, more of a personal website, but it seems people have been using it for all purposes. I guess it’s time we reevaluate the demo and how we are presenting the theme.

I have seen a lot of people using the adspace as a slider area (works putting a shortcode and/or HTML inside there and it will display in the appropriate area). It’s a good idea to present that as well in our demo, I’ll put that on my to-do list, although we have a LOT on our plate right now with our new theme and updates and support to our current themes.

Could you elaborate on the image, do you mean the Featured Image itself or the image of “My Mug”. That is actually a picture of me, it’s not the best one I’ll admit and I will consider changing them, this was of course ( as you realize ) purely for demonstration purposes.

Thank you so much for your input, without people like you, we wouldn’t know how to improve ourselves and our work!

Best Regards, Arnar

AMcDermott

Glad you appreciate the input, I felt guilty about the wall of text.

Regarding the particular image of you, I’m sorry to say it, but I would recommend choosing a different photo. No offence intended :)

bluthemes_

Haha non taken, it’s a pretty unprofessional photo and I’ll change it, and again thank you for the input!

Hi,

Just purchased it and I have got some problems to insert a video in the sidebar. If I insert the iframe then the responsive design does not work properly. Also I have tried to install the plugin “Youtube Sidebar” and it results in some errors installing. Any suggestion??

bluthemes_

It’s working fine right now at my end, using FireFox. Is it still an issue? It could be that there was a cache-ing issue with your browser, try empty-ing the cache or open it up in a Private Window on Firefox

Pigmeo Purchased

Still persists. I have tried in a Private Window and it does not make any difference

bluthemes_

This is what I see I’m using Firefox v25, if there’s a problem with it, then I doubt it’s from us, we are simply loading an iframe from Twitter (basically a window to another website) and we have no control over what happens in there sadly.

Hi,

I’m considering buying this theme, but i wanted one tweak to it to make it perfect for my needs. Before the recent posts, I want there to be a “slider” or “featured” area. I think that makes more than having the featured area be on the side, although i would love to use that space for like “reviews’’ or something. Is it possible to add a “featured” section before the posts on the homepage?

bluthemes_

Yes, I’ll put it on the priority list and try and get to it as soon as I can :)

Default-user

thanks, do you have an est. time frame, i really need those features :/. do you think it’d come out in 1 week?

bluthemes_

I’m going to work on Bliss for the next week and try to put out an update as soon as I can, it’s probably going to take one or two weeks

Great Theme! Any plans to release your Instagram plugin separately? It’s one of the best I’ve seen. thanks, Andy

bluthemes_

Hi, thank you very much! We’ve talked about it and we are going to add it as a separate free plug-in when we have the time, my coworker is currently on vacation so I’ve got my hands full at the moment but it’s definitely on our to-do list.
We honestly made it because we couldn’t find a decent one that did what we wanted to, glad you feel the same way :)

Best Regards, Arnar

Hello,

I need to translate to spanish the “Continue Reading” link.

Is there any way?

thanks in advance,

bluthemes_

Hey there eliasdomingo

There are instructions on how to translate the theme in the documentation, you can use POEdit to translate the theme ( or just that one string )

Best Regards, Arnar

I have a problem. PLEASE HELP ASAP.

“The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

bluthemes_

Hey there Chimpkid, try redownloading the zip file and uploading it again ( particle.zip ). Looks like it’s a broken zip file or something like that.

Best Regards, Arnar

Hi there, Would you be able to help with the installation of the theme and also a small customization. Can I email to explain in more detail? Thanks

bluthemes_

It is a separate install, but the demo content is included in the zip file with your purchase, you can import it in WordPress :)

Hopefully this is the last question I have :) .... is there an option for banner advertising in the header area? Also, is there a widget for the right hand column for a video gallery box, showcasing some videos. And the same for photos, like a photo gallery box? Thanks so much for your help!

bluthemes_

It’s not problem, I’m here to answer all your questions :)

Here you can see the advertisement areas that are available, you can also add a custom shortcode/HTML on those areas (like a slider for example).

Currently the featured slider fetches posts based on the tag you give us in the Theme Options, so you could tag all of your video posts that you want to show there with the “featured” tag for example and they will all turn up in the featured slider (you can customize the name of the tag as well).
I’ve added the option to my to-do list to enable users to add a custom tag to each of the sliders, that way you could tag your videos with one tag and photo gallery posts with another.

There isn’t a widget for that specific feature though, how would you like to use it? As in, how would you like to define the gallery used in the widget for example?

Best Regards, Arnar

Great theme. Really simplified my site after the initial magazine style build. I do have some share related requests.

1. A way to easily change the “Share story” text. 2. A Pinterest share icon.

I’m currently using a third party Pinterest plugin at http://blendersmoothies.com.

bluthemes_

To change the share story text, you’ll have to install PoEdit and follow the instructions given in the documentation ( you can just change that one string ).

I’ll put the pinterest share on our to-do list, thank you! :)

Hi there,

I’ve got problems with CF-Post-Formats. WordPress shows me that I need to install CF-Post-Formats but he is already installed and activated. Also, sometimes, when someone add a comment, he tell me: Sorry, but you do not have the correct permissions to install the CF-Post-Formats plugin. Contact the administrator…

bluthemes_

Hey there, it’s a bug with the plug-in we use to notify users that they need to get a particular plug-in, just dismiss the notice and you should be fine :)

Hello!

We have problems with the share buttons, is not possible to add the tittle. If you push in twitter button you only see the URL. Is it possible to fix this?

Tweet: post tittle + URL + @web

Thanks!

bluthemes_

Hey there, navigate to Bliss/inc/meta-bottom.php and in line ~ 18 change the twitter line from this:

<?php if(!$share_buttons_disabled['twitter']){ ?><li><a class="tips" data-title="Twitter" href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="social_share('http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=<?php echo $share_url; ?>');"><i class="icon-twitter-1" /></a></li><?php } ?>


to this:

<?php if(!$share_buttons_disabled['twitter']){ ?><li><a class="tips" data-title="Twitter" href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="social_share('http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=<?php echo $share_url; ?>&text=<?php the_title(); ?>');"><i class="icon-twitter-1" /></a></li><?php } ?>


Let me know if that works :)

Best Regards, Arnar

Thanks for your support. Yes, it works but I like to add in the same sentence something like this: “via @mytwitteraccount”. Is it possible?

Thanks again!

This should do it, just replace the MYTWITTERACCOUNT with your twitter username ( no @ signs )

Hi. 1) Can I have the same blue images for the header and the navigation menu as they are on the demo? I couldn’t find them.

2) The default fonts which are used in this theme does support cyrillic according to Google Fonts service. However as you see in my website – pecheli (dot) bg , the post in cyrillic isn’t OK. Please tell me how to add the support of cyrillic. Thanks

P.S. I did write you an email, but you didn’t respond :(

bluthemes_

Hey Aleksander, I responded to your e-mail 2 hours ago, check your inbox :)

Hi there! I love this theme. I love it so much I want to do a couple of adjustments.

1. Is it possible to adjust the lines between the text in my blog posts?

2. At the top of the page I would love to have a field (covering the whole page in with) with a video and an opt-in. Is it possible to position it that way somehow, or would I need to install a plugin of some sort?

Thank you for your help :-)

bluthemes_

Hi, terribly sorry for the late response, for a better response time I suggest you check out our support forums

1. Yeah, put this in your Theme Options -> Custom CSS, alter the number to what you would like it to be

.entry-content p, .entry-content ul li, .entry-content ol li{ line-height: 1.5 }

2. Check out our adspaces to achieve this, you can use a shortcode or just put in a HTML snippet yourself :)

Best Regards, Arnar

@bluthemes_ -> I didn’t receive any email :( Please copy paste the address of my email

Default-user

P.S. Sorry Gmail fitlered out the email as spam :(

How can I increase the width of the page with no side bar? Thanks so much!

bluthemes_

That’s for your first question, to increase the width of the content with no sidebar, it’s a strict CSS fix but it’ll work :)

grantkessler

Ok cool and how can I fix the mobile theme problem?

bluthemes_

You have some sort of plug-in that’s altering the way the website is displayed in mobile, so I can’t help you with this, since this is not our code. If this isn’t a plug-in you set up then I’ve seen some cases of the hosting provider bugging in on the mobile versions of pages and putting up default templates (godaddy does this for example) so if this isn’t your doing, then I suggest you contact them :)

Any thoughts on adding an ‘events’ post type? Something like http://www.dalecallahan.com/events/
