LOve it. QUite a few things to still add and do but awesome. However videos will not display. I select video for the post type and then put the vimeo or youtube link but nothing displays?

Still 5 star blogging theme

simnor

Hi, you’ll need to add a featured image, the reason for that is because it would ruin the design if we just had the embedded video behind the title (because of the controls like the play button etc.) plus the image they use for the preview on YouTube/Vimeo isn’t HD so it would look pixelated on the theme. So I set it so that you need to upload an image, that way you can upload a nice big HD image and it would look great.

Hope that helps :)

Love this theme! Great job!

Before I purchase, I did notice one issue or concern. When you view the theme on mobile/tablet screens, it appears that the post titles disappear once you click to view the full post.

Is this a bug or the desired display? Thanks

simnor

Yes that is a bug, nice spot. I will issue an update to the theme asap, for now you can add this to the Custom CSS field in the “Styling” tab of the theme options:

@media (max-width: 640px) and (min-width: 0px) { .post-top .post-header h1, .post-top .post-header h2 { color: #4f70b3; } }

@ timtimtim I think you need to add a “Featured Image” (a still image from the video) and then it should work.

One problem I noticed.

I specify the format as “Gallery” then add media as per normal to create a Gallery.

But if I reorder the images in the gallery, or even the IDs in the gallery short code, the order isn’t reflected on the site after publishing the update.

It seems to be placing them in the order of which the images were uploaded.

simnor

Hi, thanks for letting me know, added it to the list of things to fix on the next update which should be out in the next day or so.

Looks great!

Do the featured images have to be as cropped as in your demo, or can they be more typical ratio dimensions of a photo?

Thanks!

simnor

Hi, they wont get cropped when you upload, it will create a version of the image that is 1200 pixels width x XXXX pixels height, the XXXX will be the correct height to keep the initial ratio of the image. So if you upload an image of 2000×1500 (4:3), then the created image would be 1200×900 (4:3).

Great theme – thanks! Do you plan to support Featured Images on Pages? I’d like to add one, but they don’t show up on the page.

Thanks again – this is the first Wordpress theme I have been motivated to spend money on.

simnor

Hi, that’s a good point, I’m going to be uploading an update today to fix a few minor bugs so will add in the capability of featured images on pages.

If you haven’t already, you can go to your downloads page: http://themeforest.net/downloads and tick the “Get notified by email if this item is updated” checkbox then you should get a notification when the update has been added.

very interested in buying it, but I feel the weakest point of this theme is the footer… looks bulky and not to my taste at all… the rest of the design and layout is perfect… is it easy to change the layout/design of the footer?

i would give the layout and design of the blog a 8.5 rating, but the footer… possibly 3-4…

simnor

Hi, if you know CSS fairly well then yes you should be able to change the design of the footer, if not then you may need to hire a developer to make any changes you desire. You could also not have the footer at all, if you don’t add any widgets then that widget area wont show.

Cheers, Simon

Okay… well there’s 2 requests before I am ready to buy.

1. the slideshow on top of the post when there are images, can it be made touch/swipe compatible? instead of hitting the small dots, i would like to swipe with my finger.

2. for some reason the vimeo videos does not play on my samsung galaxy note 2… the youtube video works fine… any idea?

simnor

1) You’d need to hire a developer to add that functionality as it’s a customisation and that’s not provided under support.

2) It brings the videos directly from Vimeo, so that will be a Vimeo issue not a theme issue.

Pondering purchasing this however my complaints about it are as follows.

1. The slideshow for the featured images of the posts are not very usable. They contain small dots to change the images and their hit states are very small. This also doesn’t convey to the user very well that there are other images to look through because of how small those dots are. I would rather see arrows on the sides or as the user “pleiadene” suggested above the ability to drag/touche/swipe the images to change them. Even on a desktop it’s hard to hit those small circles with a mouse.

2. For the gallery posts it’s nice that you can change through the images in the featured header image for the posts. However, I would also like to see the ability to add that gallery to the actual post and not the header area. Can we do this or is it only conformed to the featured image area?

Those are the only two things keeping me from purchasing this.

simnor

Hi,

1) You can increase the size of the dots in the Custom CSS field of the theme options, as they are pulled through via an icon font rather than images, so you just need to increase the font size to make them bigger. (eg, .post-gallery ul.gallery-nav li { font-size: 18px; margin: 0 0 0 15px; } ) If you wanted the other ways of navigating then you’d need to hire a developer to make those changes, I like to keep my designs simple and uncluttered so I went with dots on this one as it worked much nicer than arrows.

2) The default WordPress thumbnail gallery is still in the code, it’s just set to hidden in the CSS ( .entry .gallery { display: none; } ) so you can re-enable that by adding .entry .gallery { display: block; } in the Custom CSS. The new gallery only comes through if you set the post format to “gallery”, if you leave it as a standard post then it wont bring it through.

Cheers, Simon

1. I’m assuming it’s pretty easy to change out the circles with font awesome to something else. I’m seeing the class as ‘icon-circle-blank’. All I would need to do is find the appropriate class on the font awesome webpage to reference what I need? (http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/cheatsheet/)

2. I’m testing this on your live preview. I’ve enabled the gallery in the post, but I can’t seem to verify if the images still work correctly when clicked. Maybe because the links were not set through wordpress when you uploaded them? Assuming this is not a code issue.

Also for the images in the gallery at the top of the post. I know you are retaining the aspect ratio with the width being 1200 pixels. However does the list “gallery-slides” always match the appropriate height for each image displayed? Or is it limited to a specific height? If it’s not limited and set to match the height of the images based on a 1200 pixel width. This probably means the height of the featured image with a dimension… lets say 1200×900… this could potentially be really large featured image.

On a side note; curious as to why you just didn’t remove the gallery from the template instead of hiding it with CSS inside of .entry

Overall nice theme; there is a lot that I could probably do with this, but certainly a few things to tweak. Thanks.

simnor

Hi,

1) Yes

2) I think you’ve spotted a code bug there actually :) will fix that up in the next update.

3) When you change between the images, the area will resize to the height of the new image. So yes if you don’t want really big images (height wise) you would need to crop your images before upload, I think there would have been more complaints if I was cropping the images :)

4) On your side note, the reason why is that as a theme developer it’s bad practise to overwrite core WordPress functions, and as the gallery shortcode is a core WordPress function, it would mean users (like yourself) would have to go into code to re-enable the default functionality, by simply hiding it, you have control over it via the Custom CSS function.

5) Cheers, themes will never be perfect for every user, you’ll always need to make some changes to get it how you want it to your own particular tastes, that’s why I’ve commented all the code and tried to organise everything nicely for developers.

Cheers, Simon

I’m also coming across some more usability problems now that I can try on a touch device. This is built to be responsive in layout terms, but not so much for actual usability. The portfolio section really fails on anything other than desktop. It requires the user to hover over to gain access to the link to the portfolio items. It’s pretty much impossible to gain access to the individual portfolio pages on anything that’s a touch device. I’d suggest leaving the hover state there either on anything smaller than desktop layouts or leave it there all the time.

Also if you activate the search box on a touch device, and leave it open. Then activate the navigation items it is presented behind the search field, and you have to first close the search box before you can get access to the navigation items.

If those items were fixed I’d probably buy this.

simnor

Hi,

You can do the first one with Custom CSS, something like:

@media (max-width: 640px) and (min-width: 0px) { .entry .portfolio-items li a.item-preview .item-overlay, .entry .portfolio-items li a.item-preview .item-content, .entry .portfolio-items li a.item-permalink { display:block!important; } }

will show the overlaid items by default on devices smaller than 640px width.

The second one is a bug which I’ve added to the bug list for fixes in v1.2

Some more problems (bugs) after installing the theme.

When you change the background color to something light (white) via your admin panel it renders the header and footer useless as well as the navigation because the text and icons are set in white. This makes the theme useless to people that don’t know how to edit css.

I would also suggest allowing the user to upload their own “social icons” to fit in near the navigation. This would get rid of the problem for the custom color changes to the background.

Also when you click on the search icon and decide you want to close it and not use the search. It automatically searches. This needs to be solved for users that want to close the search box without searching the site.

simnor

Hi,

1) The theme is a dark theme so changing the design to a light colour will have it’s problems, however it should be fairly easy to set the colours of the elements in the top to a dark colour to counteract that, I’ve quickly gone through it here: http://pastie.org/8142121. This is a customisation so inevitably you would need to use CSS to fix it up, as it’s not a bug, a bug is when there’s an issue out of the box with the design as-is, any issues from customisations aren’t bugs.

2) The above fix should sort this.

3) Great idea, added it to the list of changes in v1.2

Cheers, Simon

Another (small) bug I’ve discovered.

In the navigation if you expand it via the reorder icon. Then hover over the reorder icon the hover state does not work on the reorder icon. If you collapse the navigation the hover state works again.

In the navigation (if it’s already set to expand on page load rater then clicking it) the hover state works on the reorder icon. If you collapse the menu the hover state still works. If you expand the navigation the hover state disables itself just like I described above.

simnor

Hi,

1) That will be because the hover state is also the active state, so they would be the same. That was a design choice.

2) That is a bug, it should be set to the active state, will add to the list of fixes for the next version. Thanks for letting me know.

The more I develop with this theme the more I want my money back. The portfolio section on this theme was poorly thought out and designed. Frankly you should of made it very apparent that this theme should be used with dark colors and you should make it very apparent what someone will get into by using this portfolio setup. It’s confusing and misleading to your consumers. I hope other users read my comments and make a much more informed decision about buying this theme.

If a user doesn’t want to use the slider images you’ve coded in, and just wants to place them in the entry post to show off it creates problem for the viewing experience with your layout.

1. When you set a featured image without adding any images via your portfolio items options area. The featured image now becomes the default header image above the entry. This is annoying because a user may NOT want that featured image as a header image. It should just be blank if no images are added via your portfolio items options area. The user may want to add images to the post entry instead of adding it via your method. So you should not assume just because there are none added via your portfolio items options area that you should drop that featured image in the header.

2. Also the terrible gray overlay you have looks horrible when over images with majority of white in the images, and only looks good with images that are dark.

3. Now when I decide to not use a featured image so that I don’t have to worry about that featured image being placed in the header. I now lose my thumbnail to the portfolio item on the portfolio template page. This should be solved by using a pre-defined square (if no featured image supplied) with a solid color and the portfolio title as the headline in that square. That square then should link to the said portfolio item.

4. So lets say I scratch that idea above, and do what you originally designed to have the portfolio as. Now when you constrain an image to 1200 pixels wide from an image file that was originally 3,xxx by 5,xxx you get roughly 1,200 by 1,800 pixels. (I’m referring to us photographers out there an designers that have full interface elements to show off). When you display that massive image it’s absolutely unusable for the user to view on the screen. Not only is it an unusable viewing experience, but you now have those little control dots (that I referred to in my replies above about being a problem) that have been moved to the very bottom of the images by the captions. Now the user has to scroll down the massive image without even knowing where the image controls went after changing images or if they even realize there are any image controls at the bottom to change the portfolio images. This is why having arrows on the side would of solved for this issue.

5. On the portfolio template page with the thumbnails of the portfolio post it is HIGHLY annoying that clicking on an the image/portfolio headline does not take a user to the said portfolio item. Instead you have to click on a little square that you have to hover over to even see. If you want to just see the images that should be an action in which you hover to click the magnifying glass to expand. Clicking the image/headline of the portfolio item should be an expected action to get to the said portfolio item, and the magnifying glass should be a secondary action if the user wants to view the images instead of the portfolio page.

Now before you get all offended and tell me I’m wrong and how you designed the theme is 100% right. I am a UI/UX designer for a health care company that makes billions each year and serves thousands of consumers. What I’m saying is not stuff I’m pulling out of my ass. I’ve fixed most of your problems myself on my theme, but the portfolio section is so messed up that it’s a lost cause and I’m going to have to purchase another theme to accommodate the simple feat of just showing off a portfolio item correctly and usuable my viewers.

simnor

Hi, I’m sorry that you feel this way, by all means contact support here: http://support.envato.com/ and apply to get your money back. I definitely don’t want people having a hard time with my work, I put a lot of effort into my themes to make things as easy as possible and make the designs as nice as possible.

It’s not about how much experience you have though, this is a theme not a multi-national site. I have been designing for the last 6-7 years for clients around the world so I also have some experience, it wasn’t just hacked together overnight, a lot of work and thought goes into themes and because you disagree with some aspects of the theme it doesn’t me I or you are wrong, it just means we have differing views on design, I also run a popular design gallery over at designdelight.net so I do have a very clear understanding of what works. The majority of my other customers haven’t had issues with the design, if there are bugs with the theme then I always make a note of them and try to implement fixes, however because you are using the design not as intended, it is a dark theme so changing it to light does not constitute a bug, that’s a customisation (it certainly isn’t me misleading in any way, you purchase designs as-is, that’s what themes are). I have helped where I can with those, another user has actually successfully made it light so it can be done.

Regarding your points:

Slider images issue, in Theme Options -> Styling -> Custom CSS you can add .entry .gallery { display: block!important; } and the old gallery will come back, I never disabled it, I just hid it so that you had the choice.

1) You could add this to the custom css field: article.type-portfolio .post-image { display: none!important; } that will mean that if it does show the featured image then it will be hidden.

2) Again, if you hate the overlay then in css you can add: .post-image .overlay, .post-gallery .overlay { display: none!important; } to remove it.

3) This should be solved if you implement point 1.

4) There’s not a lot I can do about photo ratios, you could of course move the dots to the top using this css: .post-gallery ul.gallery-nav { bottom: auto; top: 0px; } and increase the size of the dots by adding this: .post-gallery ul.gallery-nav li { font-size: 20px; }

5) I can see where you’re coming from, however if you look at the majority of themes on themeforest it’s general consensus that clicking the image should take you to the lightbox, not the item. I’ve just taken a look at the best way to do it as you want without editing files, and we can achieve this with CSS as well, so basically we now set the link icon to be the overlay link:

.entry .portfolio-items li a.item-permalink { display: block !important; bottom: 0px !important; left: 0px; height: 400px; width: 100%; z-index: 1000; text-indent: -9999px; position: absolute !important; background: none transparent!important; }

.entry .portfolio-items li a.item-preview span.item-zoom { z-index: 1001; }

I’m not going to get offended :) Everyone has differing views on design, and I would be a hypocrite if I was offended when I indeed judge websites everyday over at my design gallery. I think I’ve mentioned this in a previous post, not sure whether it was with you or someone else, but themes are not going to be 100% exactly how you want them unless you’re using them exactly like the demo, and so there is give and take. I cant implement design changes to themes though because it impacts every other customer who has that theme and that’s just unfair to them.

As I say at the top by all means contact support if you would like a refund, I’d hate to think that you’re having such a hard time working with my work, I put so much effort into my work so to hear that it’s causing you problems, is definitely not what I want.

If you do decide to move on then I hope you manage to find a theme that suits your site perfectly :)

Cheers, Simon

Lets look at this from a perspective of someone that has no coding experience at all though. I have the ability to change things myself so I’m not a typical user, but I also bought the theme to make small adjustments and not to have to recode it all from scratch (which is basically what I’ve been doing). If you’re making something for the masses it should be customizable by the lowest common denominator user. When you say you have viewed other behaviors for themes on how to interact with portfolios; I’m not certain which ones you’ve been looking at, but the majority is certainly not this way. There is definitely some that interact this way, but it’s not a correct user case. I have no doubt you put a lot of work into this, and I know developing themes is not that easy especially when you plan to sell it to the masses. I’m not discrediting you at all for that.

I’ve enabled the gallery a long time ago, but I don’t use the default gallery from wordpress anyways because I don’t like it. I’d rather use the entry to add full size images that scale down as the user’s screen adjusts. It’s much better than having to view a thumbnail and click it to expand it like the gallery is designed for. That’s not a typical viewing experience for someone on mobile nor is it appropriate for a user on desktop, but I digress and that part is not particularly your fault.

I haven’t given up on your theme, but my point is if someone buys this and has no coding experience at all. Then what happens if they want to do what I want with the theme? They are pretty much left out to fend for themselves or pay $$$ for a developer to code some simple CSS changes on top of buying the theme. Which I guess isn’t a bad thing because it keeps us employed ;) However in my case, I bought the theme with the assumption I’d change probably 150 lines of CSS or less to get it running fine. That’s certainly not the case and it’s frustrating because I’ve had to spend a good amount of time customizing something I shouldn’t have. I definitely think the theme is beautiful in the original idea and implementation, but the portfolio section has some usability issues that could of been addressed better during your development.

simnor

Hi, thank you for your feedback, I shall take on board what you’ve said.

It is worth mentioning that themes are sold on an as-is basis though so if a design requires customisation then it’s deemed as something the buyer has responsibility over (which may result in them needing to hire a developer if they’re not a developer themselves, Envato, the parent company of ThemeForest have actually just released a site specifically for this kind of thing: http://www.microlancer.com/explore/website-customization).

On saying that, some themes will add in options to change pretty much every colour on the design, some wont, the reason why I don’t (apart from the main colours) is because the last thing I want is for my themes to become bloated (especially simple themes like this one) and that’s what happens when you add a lot of options. On the product page I have uploaded all the screenshots for the admin areas (clicking the screenshots button under the preview image), so that people can see what’s available from an admin perspective before they purchase the theme.

I hope that sticking with my theme will result in an amazing site your end, and as is the case so far, I’m happy to help on any issues you’re having that are deemed issues with the theme, and once again, I’m sorry you’ve not had an amazing experience up till now.

Your “Simnor Widgets” WP plugin is not compatible with the current version of WP. It breaks WP compltely and throws 500 internal server errors.

[17-Aug-2013 04:07:45] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home4/rohicksc/public_html/portfolio/wp-content/plugins/simnor-widgets/widgets/widget-dribbble.php on line 32

EDIT* Fixed this problem.

Also on the responsive css media queries I’ve noticed on the layouts where the device’s browser is less than 980px wide the portfolio no longer works like expected. When you click on them they go into the light box preview instead of into the portfolio item.

simnor

Hi, was the plugin working prior to the update, it’s working ok on my version which is 3.6, there is however an issue with the PHP wrapper for the Dribbble API and certain versions of PHP as detailed here in the support forum: http://simnorlabs.com/ticket/cant-activate-simnor-widgets/ there’s also a link to an alternative plugin you could try.

So with the media queries issue, the css in responsive.css will overwrite the code I gave you previously for the portfolio section, so all you need to do is make that code like this:

.entry .portfolio-items li a.item-permalink { display: block !important; bottom: 0px !important; left: 0px!important; height: 400px!important; width: 100%!important; z-index: 1000!important; text-indent: -9999px!important; position: absolute !important; background: none transparent!important; }

.entry .portfolio-items li a.item-preview span.item-zoom { z-index: 1001!important; }

and that should overwrite the media query styling (through the use of the !important text), let me know if it doesn’t.

Cheers, Simon

rohicks

Thanks for the CSS. It worked. Not sure why the previous CSS you gave me wasn’t working. Maybe I left something out – not sure?

The plugin worked on my local then when I went to prod with the site it was bad. In fact i spent hours trying to get the site working, and thought I was doing something wrong in transferring my local to prod even though I’ve done it numerous times. However, it turns out when I checked my server error logs it was returning an error from that plugin. Once I deleted the plugin folder everything worked. I reinstalled it from the WP marketplace, and then went to try and activate it again to see what would happen if I installed it fresh. That’s when wordpress was giving me the same syntax error I saw in my logs.

I tried editing what you discussed in the support thread and received another error.

“Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_VARIABLE in [removed]/wp-content/plugins/simnor-widgets/widgets/widget-dribbble.php on line 45”

I actually would like to use the dribble plugin if you can figure this out, and update me when you get it that’d be awesome. In the meantime I’ll comment it out and see what I can do with the other one.

simnor

Hi, regarding the CSS, you would have put it in correctly before, but the original responsive css would have overwritten it once you went below 980px width on a browser, so by adding !important to all of the styles it made it so that it couldn’t be overwritten.

On the plugin, once I’ve worked out a fix (I either have to find another API wrapper or fix the API wrapper that I’m currently using which isn’t my code) then you will see it in your plugin updates as normal as the plugin is hosted on the main repository, will try and remember to update you though.

Hi, congrats for your theme! It’s awesome. Just a couple of questions before purchase.

I’m a blogger so for me it’s very important to have social sharing buttons. Are you planning to integrate them in your next update?

Also I’d prefer to have the menu always visible. Can I set up that through admin panel?

I hope you can help me out

Thanks in advance

Hi, it doesn’t come with social sharing, however I know one user of the theme is using the Jetpack plugin http://jetpack.me/ with the sharing addon and it looks good with the theme, looks like there’s a video here explaining how to set it up here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBcsaaCfr3Y alternatively there is AddThis: http://wordpress.org/plugins/addthis/ which I’ve used in the past and it’s really good. It’s best not to include social sharing within the theme code just in case twitter, facebook etc. change something and then the social sharing will break, if you use a plugin it can be updated easily and quickly.

Regarding the menu visibility, someone has already asked about that on the support forum, so this is how you’d do it: http://simnorlabs.com/ticket/menu-hard-to-find/

Hope that helps

Cheers, Simon
