My client has purchased this theme for me to develop for them, hence no ‘purchased’ badge. I just want to add a RevSlider to the homepage. There doesn’t appear to be an archive or category page to add it to other than the header, which clearly will add it to all pages and posts.

Where is the post archive / category page to edit?

bluthemes_

If it’s a shortcode then you can use the Adspace to place the shortcode and choose where you want to display it.
Let me know if that helps :)

Hi,

When do you think the new update will come out? I am looking to purchase soon and would love to have the featured slider before the most recent posts.

Appreciate the feedback!

bluthemes_

I can’t say for certain, we are doing the best we can right now, I’ll try and implement this feature and release it as soon as I can :) I’ll let you know when it’s in

Default-user

thanks a lot! any timeframe though? sorry for all the questions

bluthemes_

Hey justin, I updated the theme yesterday and this feature is implemented, so I just put a widget area above the content ( the blog ), when you drag the Bluth Featured Posts Slider in that area it will scale up and look great :)

Thanks for the pointer, I hope this satisfies you :)

Default-user

wow you guys are the best, i will purchase tonight!

Hi. thanks for great theme. it’s working well. I have just two question.:)

2. i think the space between the social sharing buttons and author box of each posts. Can i make it shorter?

thank you for your kindness. :)

FOR 2nd question: I just have noticed ‘the space’ was prev./next post tab. sorry. just hope you to tell me about the q.1. :)

bluthemes_

Hey there cherhy

This is how you target the facebook header

.bl_likebox .widget-head{}

It’s a stuck color, but you can change it this way :) You might want to add a background-image: none; there too, because of the background image that’s currently there.

How do I change the color of the post type icon?, If I pick a different color the post icon color is still blue.

bluthemes_

There are choices to change the colors of all the post icons in Theme Options -> Post & Pages, do they not work for you? Might it be cached?

bluthemes_

Have you changed the correct option? There are special options for each post format, you can find them in your wordpress admin panel under Appearance -> Theme Options -> Posts & Pages. If you scroll down on that page until you see “Audio Post Color”. That’s the color you need to change to change the color of the audio posts for example.

Hey guys!

First of all, the theme is PERFECT. Seems like you guys thought of every single detail a blogger might want to have.

Here is my question: Since I have quite a few youtube videos/soundcloud iframes on the homepage, the website takes a good 5-10 seconds to load. How can I change the pagination from 10 posts down to 5-6? Also, what plugin would you recommend to help speed up the website?

Thanks a lot guys and great work!

P.S. 2 things I think would be cool to have in future updates: - Rating so we can know what posts are most popular. - Ad space on the sidebar.

bluthemes_

Hey there, that’s a default WordPress setting, go to Settings -> Reading and there you’ll see the Blog pages show at most, alter that number and it’ll change.

I’d recommend W3-Total-Cache to speed up the website, we’re using that right now and it’s working great, you’ll have to read a bit about how it works to get the most of it, but it works like a charm once you get a bit familiar with it :)

We probably won’t implement a rating plug-in because of the nature of the theme, but we might support a plugin in the future

I’ve actually just added support for Google Adsense in the newest version, check it out! It’s really easy to use as well

I just bought the theme, but i can’t’ install it because it says missing style sheet, how can i fix this?

bluthemes_

Did you try installing through the WP admin area or via FTP?

Check this out, there’s a “Stylesheet Missing” section if you scroll down.

Default-user

i got it, thanks a lot!

do you know why i can’t change the header color though? it tells you you’re able to change it in the fonts and color area but i don’t see one for the header color. Also, for the featured posts, i can’t seem to get it to work. i chose “featured” as the tag, but it still doesn’t work

Default-user

when i put the featured posts above the blog, the text becomes jumbled up, and for the featured posts widget itself, what does offset mean, and how do i choose what posts go there?

bluthemes_

It fetches the posts by the tag you give the widget, the offset simply means where to start showing the posts, so if there are 3 posts with the featured tag and you put 1 in the offset then it will only show 2 and 3 in the widget (it will skip the first one).

To change the colors yourself you must check the “Custom Color Theme” checkbox in Theme Options -> Colors & fonts, there you’ll see a bunch of options :)

Default-user

thanks, can you send me the blue header image you have in the demo to my email please? justin.pham @ icloud.com thx!

thank you!

Hi, I tried to get rid of the highlight on links within posts. I was able to do that but not the text is white (which looks blank). How do I change the text color for links to black?

Thanks!

bluthemes_

Add this to your Theme Options -> Custom CSS

article.type-post p a{ color: #333333 }
Default-user

Great! Thanks!

However, now there’s extra spacing (where the highlight used to be). How do I change that?

Here’s the link in case you need a visual.

bluthemes_

Ah, sorry. Try this:

article.type-post p a{ 
  padding: 0; 
  margin: 0;
  color: #333333 
}

Hi! very nice theme ! But there are some “widget” problems: A) Bluth Featured Post display only 1 post (slide works, but it’s only the same post is displaying).

B) Bluth Tabs don’t display featured image inside the round.

Another thing: an alert box tells me that CF Post Format is not installed and it is installed.

Thank you for your help. Best regards. Mathieu

bluthemes_

Hey there Mathieu!

Are you sure there are more than one posts with the tag you gave the widget in featured posts?

I’ll check out the featured images in Bluth Tabs, thanks for the pointer.

You can disable that notification, that plug-in we’ve been using has been a pain since first release unfortunately, but it’s a moot notification :)

Hi Arnar. Thank you for your quick reply. Yes sure, thare more than one posts with the same tag. I installed Bliss theme on an another URL and WP and the problem is the same.

bluthemes_

Ah, my bad, I’ll fix this in the next update, in the meantime you can go to the bliss/inc/widgets/bl_featured_post.php and in line ~ 29 change this line:

'numberposts' => empty($instance['slider']) ? 1 : 10,

to exactly this:

'numberposts' => 10,

That should fix it :)

Pre-sale questions: Is it SEO optimized or we need to DIY it? Any recommend SEO plugin that will work well with this theme?

bluthemes_

Hi,

It has basic SEO features like meta tags for social networks and of course the theme is semantic and well structured. SEO is not all about how the code is written but also the content itself.

If you want to dig deeper into SEO I recommend the Yoast SEO plugin. Just make sure to enable SEO plugin support in the theme options to hand over all SEO functionality to the plugin so there won’t be no conflicts.

Hello,

I installed the widget MailChimp newsletter. But adds no emails in MailChimp list. The api key is correct.

thank you very much

Hi pedronovellon, we are currently looking into this problem, we’ll put in a fix for this in the next update, shouldn’t be too far away :)

bluthemes_

Hi, I found the issue and fixed it.

As said before we’ll include this in the next release but if you want the fix now I can send you the fixed file via email, just drop me a line at bluth@bluth.is

What are the 4 widgets that Breeze has but excluded here? I’m torn between this one and Breeze.

bluthemes_

I’m gonna leave this question open for Arnar my colleague to answer, he was in charge of development for this theme. It’s already 00:25, have to hit the hay. He’ll get back to you in the morning on this one :)

bluthemes_

Hey there, Arnar here!

There are actually 14 widgets in Bliss as well, I just hadn’t gotten around to updating the description apparently, the widgets for both of them are:

Bluth Author
Bluth Categories
Bluth Featured Post
Bluth Flickr
Bluth Google ADS
Bluth Google+ Badge
Bluth HTML
Bluth ImageBox
Bluth Instagram
Bluth Likebox
Bluth Newsletter
Bluth Social Widget
Bluth Tabs
Bluth Tweets

I recently put the Google ADS widget up in Bliss as well, so that’s there.

There’ll be more updates coming for Breeze for sure, but Bliss will still be updated, just not as hasty :)

Yes, that’s also an option in Bliss :)

I love the theme very much. One thing though, is it possible to adjust the width of the widgets on the right hand side? I use adsense ads on my site and i want the width to be the same size as the ads are. Is that possible to do?

Thanks!

bluthemes_

Would you want to make it larger or smaller? Making it smaller is no problem, but making it larger, we’d have to give it some extra custom CSS. I could help you with that, but as I’ve said to our other customers, we can’t guarantee that it’ll work great on mobile devices.

Have you tried the Google Adsense Widget we made in the v2.4 update? It’s responsive and it adapts to all areas :)

Default-user

Can you help me make the right hand side widgets about 336px? width

bluthemes_

This code right here should work, but it won’t look good on smaller screens, you’d have to dig into the core a bit to do that.

Put this in your Theme Options -> Custom CSS

#content {
  width: 804px;
}
aside.widget-area {
  width: 336px;
}
Default-user

this question may have been answered before but for the featured posts, where do i find the bliss/inc/widgets/bl_featured_post.php to change the code to make it work? sorry, i couldn’t find it in “edit” themes

bluthemes_

I’m not sure I follow, what would you like to change? It’s just fetching posts with the tags that you provide the widget

Default-user

because there’s a bug in the featured widget, where only one of it shows, i want to be able to fix that, but i don’t know where to edit the code

bluthemes_

Ah I see, I’m actually trying to put in the update right now and that has a fix for this problem :)

Default-user

how can i get the update? i mean, where do i download it from? thanks!

bluthemes_

You can download it from your ThemeForest download page. Just replace the theme install with the new one, there won’t be any overwrites in your Theme Options and you won’t lose any settings :)

Thank you for the big update on 2-12-13 really thumbs up to you whereas breeze theme is also a good theme can you tell these modifications to me >>> http://prntscr.com/2aiyd2 <<<

bluthemes_

Thank you :)

You can choose where your ads are placed (what pages). Check out the Theme Options and under Advertising, you should just have to tick the checkbox marked “Pages” where the title “Banner placement” is.

I’ll look into adding the fixed scrolling but I won’t promise you anything, we can’t use the code from Breeze, since Bliss is using an outdated version of Bootstrap and it’s not compatible with the code in Breeze.

I don’t understand the other questions :)

bluthemes_

Oh, you mean change the background color. You can just add that css yourself, we won’t add that feature. You can target the gallery for example like this:

article.format-gallery .entry-content{
   background-color: red; 
}

at point 1, sorry i had to write post. http://www.pakislam.com/masjid-al-haram-expansion-project.html

point 2 is i want to display another advertisment in single-post.php above the image at which line i had to place the code of adsense in single post.php

can we change the color of post bg’s

bluthemes_

I think the first one is a problem I’ve addressed in the upcoming update, I’ll try and speed it up for you :)

The Post Background CSS I gave you above:

article.format-gallery .entry-content{
   background-color: red; 
}

This will change only gallery posts, to change all of them, just change it to this

article.type-post .entry-content{
   background-color: red; 
}

hi I just bought and installed the theme. An odd thing happening: Some posts on the home page are wider than others and some have a huge gap between them.

2nd Issue, the suggested posts are blank with a messed up share area.

Also, is thee a way to turn off displaying the featured image at the top of a clicked post?

Site is http://dslrnerd.com

bluthemes_

I might have already fixed this for the next update, it’s a masonry problem, I’m trying to put it in right now and I’m pretty confident that it’ll fix this issue.

Regarding the posts, you can add this CSS and it should remove the featured image from the single post view, add it in your Theme Options -> Custom CSS field

.single .entry-image img {
    display: none;
}

Let me know if that helps :)

My wordpress not work, can’t post anything,

I try to post with 465 words, it cut and save to db only 50 words.

some body else help me

bluthemes_

Does it only show 50 words when you click the post or are you talking about the excerpt?

You can control how many words are shown in the excerpt in the theme options or you can disable it all together and show the whole post.

If that doesn’t work try switching to another theme and if it’s still happening you know it’s an issue with WP or a server issue.

You can then try upgrading WP to 3.8 if you haven’t already. Let me know how it goes.

This theme is absolutely beautiful and you guys have been quick to answer both of my questions :)

If you’d be so kind as to answer one more question:

I’ve been able to change the typeface for blog posts by adding:

article.type-post p { color: #000000; font-family: arial; }

I know it has to be similar but how do I change it on all of the other pages?

Thanks!

bluthemes_

Hi again :)

Try this

article p { color: #000000; font-family: arial; }

if that doesn’t work try this

article.type-page p { color: #000000; font-family: arial; }

Let me know if that works :)

Hi,

I’ve asked so many questions, sorry. But for my blog, is there a way to disable the link changing color of the title on the homepage when someone hovers over it?

Thanks

bluthemes_

No problem at all :)

Do you want a fixed color on your links you mean? You can add this to your Theme Options -> Custom CSS

article.type-post p a{ color: red; }

Just change the color to something you’d like.

Hope this helps, Arnar
