Hi Dannci Thanks for a great theme. I would like to show three different categories in the FlexSlider, Carousel and the masonry at the bottom.

I’ve set the categories for FlexSlider and Carousel. Is there any way for me to get just one category shown in the masonry?

Dannci
Hello, mansory shows all categories (blog functionality). But you can edit homepage.php and on line 44 put this:
, 'cat' => 'XXX'
behind
'paged' => $paged
for XXX enter your category ID (number)

Hi there – love this theme. I seem to have the alternative homepage on my theme and I’d rather have all my posts in the individual boxes. How do I do this? I can’t seem to find it and don’t know why I have the alternative homepage

Dannci

Hello, you need to use ‘Homepage’ template. Process is in documentation. Thank you

Also, I forgot to ad. I want a menu page that says “Home” aka my homepage… but that seems to be gone too.

Dannci

What kind fo menu are you using? Custom or classic? Thanks

Hi Dannci, I tried to install the theme but it returned this error on the preview:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_theme() in /home/hosting/m/....../wp-content/themes/blogdrops/functions/admin-init.php on line 10

Do you have any ideas how to make it works?

Thanks a lot for supporting.

Hello, you need to update your WordPress version. Old ones don’t “recognize” this function.

Hi Dannci, I sent over a couple of questions about the theme in an email, and wanted to make sure you had gotten it and could answer before I purchased. Thanks!

Dannci

Hello and thank you for your interest!
I cannot find your email. Please use contact form on my profile page: http://themeforest.net/user/Dannci All you questions will be answered :)

Default-user

Yep – that was how I messaged you, not a direct email. Sorry for the confusion. If you didn’t get that, I will send again. :)

Hi Dannci, 4 questions:

1- how can I create “blog” page like this http://wpdemo.themnific.com/pre/13/blog-2/ with the posts list while using the “classic” home page like this http://wpdemo.themnific.com/pre/13/?

2- how can I set the feature posts images on the higher carusel smaller (e.g. height 2/3 instead default)?

3- why sharing buttons on excerpt don’t work? Any workaround? :( (I use “Tweet, Like, Google +1 and Share” plugin)

4- could you please add an option in order to display or not the featured image on the single post view? How can I remove it by default for now?

Thanks a lot for your feedback. The theme is awsome! ;)

Hello there,
1. classic blog layout covers index.php so no action is needed if you want to use this style, you can achieve mansory layout using ‘Homepage’ template
2. you can set smaller height for ‘ul.medpost li#slider’ in style.css,
3. sorry I don’t understand – do you mean on homepage?,
4. you can delete lines 10-20 in single-s-right.php file.
Thank you

1. I would like to use both like the theme preview: 1 mansory and one with posts list, how is it possible?
2. OK
3. Yes, in the homepage, it doesn’t work
4. OK

Dannci

1. use ‘homepage’ template to create front site, then create blank page name it ‘Blog’ and set as post page http://i.imm.io/X7jm.png
2. in …\includes\post-types folder are partial post-formats files, you can delete the_post_thumbnail functions

Hi Dannci, I found a bug: Sometimes the right sidebar on mansory view is covered by a post’s featured image. See this screenshot http://awesomescreenshot.com/0f8yp6m6d . I hope to her from you soon also for points above (#1 and #2).

Thanks a lot

Dannci

Hello, you have some element in sidebar which is loading after page load, perhaps. In this case is masory layout loaded and elements have their position.

Hey there, love the look of the demo website for Blog Drops – really cool! I’ve recently bought the theme and installed it on my blog as per the instructions in the documentation.

I thought the default settings for colour, background and headers would look like the demo? I’ve even installed the fonts as your instructions in the documentation say but still this hasn’t updated. Please help me!

If I have to make manual changes to mirror the demo, can you please let me know exactly what I have to do and what code/colours I need to enter. If you need to email me, my email address is hangatuhassan@gmail.com

I’m so disappointed because I paid for this theme and I’m spending a lot of time trying to work this out and nothing seems to work!

Look forward to hearing from you!

Hello there, like documentation says (3. Default Setup) – after theme activation in admin panel hit “Save All changes” button to set default styling. Thanks

Default-user

Yes, I did that already but the theme is not saving the changes. It just leaves the header as transparent.

Is there a bug with the theme perhaps? Please help me solve this because at the moment the blog now looks terrible as the theme isn’t working as it should…

Default-user

Also, even though I have set the same homepage settings as the demo theme page, my blog looks completely terrible on iPad and mobile whereas the demo looks completely different and much better. Long story short, my blogs website is not responsive :(

Default-user

Hey good news, settings cannot be changed on chrome but work when using iPad. Weird! Anyway, settings are now same as demo but masonry layout on iPad is broken. How can I fix this?

Also some of the fonts are still incorrect (not like the demo) in the body text of the blog posts, in the descriptions of the posts on the home page and also in the text on the slider. I’ve installed the fonts exactly as your instructions in the documentation. How do I fix this?

Dannci

Hello, try to reinstall theme, maybe initial installation was incorrect..

Hi Dannci, how can I hide the header when i scroll down in the site? Is it possible in this theme? Best Regards

Dannci

Hello, in style.css find ’#header’ and delete ‘position’ and ‘top’ lines. then adjust padding-top for ‘body’ (line 20)

Hi Dannci,

I’m working with an absolutely clean install of Wordpress, trying to install your theme. While any other theme I install works, the Blogdrops theme doesn’t. I’ve tried installing it via the Upload method (uploading the .zip file) and via the FTP method. I’ve tried deleting and reuploading the files twice, as well as looking into the files and code to make sure nothing is missing. As a last minute test, I uploaded the file to an alternate blog (completely different install, server, etc.), and found that in the preview, it looked the same: http://jbs.tw/image/0D2u3y0H1l2Q

This is how the blog looks if the theme is activated: http://jbs.tw/image/1y083U2N132W

The theme is currently activated and is available to view here: http://mfsblog.nfshost.com

Thanks a lot for your help. Let me know what needs to be done to get the theme live.

Dannci

Hello, like documentation says: after theme install hit ‘Save All Changes’ button (in theme admin panel) to set default style settings. Thank you

hi there! Love the theme, I have prepared it as I wanted. One small thing that for some reason I can’t manage to do: I want to get rid of categories and the date post was posted on the homepage (e.g. 5 mins ago). How to do this?

Dannci

Hello and thank you!
In folder ..includes\post-types are partial post files (due post formats). You can delete ‘meta’ paragraphs there.

Also I just found out a very ridiculous thing! On homepage when I click “More posts” at the bottom, instead of showing next posts, it shows latest post again (same as at the top of the page). So basically, I can’t load any post from the post. How to fix it?

my website is faulem.pl

Dannci

Hello, did you edited some files?

Hi Dannci,

First of all great theme!! One question (so far): is there any possibility to change the color of the ‘read more’ and ribbons? I’ve noticed it’s possible to change the ‘hover’ color but that’s how far I got.

Many thanks !

Dannci

Hell and thank you!
these can be changed in admin panel > other styling.

Hi I have just bought the theme and am having a few problems (I apologise for stupid questions in advance).

My header is see-through? I could not see where to ‘save all changes’ to get the default settings. Where do I get the same background as the demo?

Dannci

Hello, in left menu (on dahsboard) is Blogdrops link/tab. This is admin panel where you can set your theme. Thank you

Thanks. Regarding widgets I have moved them to the sidebar panel in widget settings, but no side bar content is showing up on the homepage?

Dannci

Hello, on Homepage is necessary to use widget called ‘Homepage’. On homepage and single post/page you can have different sidebars… Thanks

Hi Thanks for the last reply. Now I can’t get to the menu items I selected to show up?

Dannci

Hello, sorry but I don’t understand what you mean. Thanks

No worries I figured it out. Now I am struggling to change my post’s font. The paragraph default is not the same as the demo site? Thanks for your quick replies :)

Tacita Purchased

Also the footer on the homepage looks correct but on all the other pages it is distorted?: http://designer-capital.com/?p=103

Dannci

But you did some single.php (or single-s-right.php) chages. Because there is no ‘container’ closing tag.

Tacita
Tacita Purchased

I don’t really understand what you mean as I am a novice. How do I fix it? I also asked a question regarding not being able to change the post font to the same as the demo. Thanks

Dannci

Your single.php file is not complete – closing ’ tag is missing’. I recommend to reupload this file.
To get demo font set in admin panel Arial font (in Primary styling). Thanks

AS you will probably be able to tell I’ve purchased your really good theme and am very happy with it. I do however have a couple of questions regarding some tweaking:

1. is there a way to have the main slider show more than just one category? 2. When it comes to the custom logo graphic what is the recommended size? 3. I noticed in the CSS there was a setting for .headad but nothing relating to it in the header.php file .. is there enough room for a 480×60 ad (floated right) beside the logo and above the nav menu?

Again thanks for a great theme – you did a great job

Dannci

hello and thank you!
1. no you can set only one featured category for slider, but under this featured category can be posts form others cats…
2. in demo site is used 195×30px logo, but can be bigger,
3. in backend is not option to add some bigg image ad, but you can add your ad code after header closing tag ’</header>’

StevenHodson

thanks for the answers was kind of hoping it would be possible for multiple categories in the slider but I can live with it :)

One other question regarding the carousel – is it possible to have it show up at the bottom of the page just above the footer but below the “More Posts” section?

Dannci

Hmm… It is not possible because slider is part of mansory layout. But if you are able to code it is not problem (thanks to responsivity of slider)...

StevenHodson

I’m not adverse to doing a bit of code hacking (been doing it for a long time) so any suggestions on how to do this would be appreciated.

Also is there a way to reduce the number of words in the ‘summary’ with each post on the main page?

Dannci

Hi, cut lines 18 – 22 in homepage templateand place/paste them above the footer code, but inside of ’.container’ div. Make from li element div and in style.css find #slider2 and edit width.
Summary (excerpt) can be edited in files (medpost.php …) located in includes\post-types folder

StevenHodson

hey Dannci,

re: slider2 code.

I’ve done the cut and paste of the code and for the most part it works with the exception of the “More Posts” link. It shows up as part of the carousel so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

site: www.geekdimensions.com is the site in question.

Dannci

Hello, add some “margin-bottom” pixels to #slider2. Thanks

Why sharing buttons on excerpt don’t work on the home page? Any workaround? (I use “Tweet, Like, Google +1 and Share” plugin) I would like to show sharing buttons before the “read more” button.

Dannci

It is because excerpt doesn’t “allow” pieces of code. You can delete excerpt in medpost.php (... includes\post-types folder) and replace with

 <?php the_content(); ?>

Is possible to have more post loaded automatically with the scrolling down?

No sorry it is not possible…

I need to add this shortcode (and make it works) before the “read more” link on the mansory Home Page.

[social4i size="small" align="align-left"]


Just like Mashable.com (it would be wonderful to show the buttons just on the mouse hover). Thanks a lot.

Dannci

Hi, change in previous comment allows you to insert shortcodes on hompage.. Thanks

Ok, I’ve done and it works, but it doesn’t work on new post boxes after clicking on “more posts”. Any ideas?

Dannci

Hello, I don’t know… it is very hard to “manage” 3rd party plugins and js scripts. Maybe you need to initialize this plugin script for every new “load”. Like prettyPhoto in jquery.masonry.start.js (js folder)

hi, dannci, i would like to ask on how you set your menu into a jquery mega menu style? Is this possible?

Dannci

Hello, theme offers only classic dropdown menu. Thanks
