Hi there again,

Can you please tell me how I remove/disable the hover image (picture of a pen inside a circle) from the thumbnails next to each post on my site:

http://australianbusinessexecutive.com.au/

Also, is it possible to loop the post titles on the right side of the main photo slider? At the moment, it just stops at the last one.

Thank you

WPExplorer

1. In the theme options uncheck the option that reads “Entry Image Hover Overlay”.

2. I do not think this is possible. I am using a premium script – http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/royal-slider/ – it doesn’t appear the author has coded that functionality into the slider. Sorry ;(

Thank you.

Hello,

I should have done this from the beginning but I’ve just learnt how to do it so am adding a child theme to my Bloggit themed site. I’ve followed the instructions for the CSS page and this works fine.

However, I’ve copied the functions/social.php page over to the child theme directory (retaining the directory structure) but the page is not overwriting the social.php in the parent directory. Any ideas?

For the record, I originally edited the social.php in the parent directory to show only four icons. The child theme version should be showing two icons.

http://australianbusinessexecutive.com.au/

One other question, is there anyway to search this comment section other than going through all (as at September) 12 pages?

Thanks

WPExplorer

Simply copying the file over will not work, because functions adding in other files like this in the parent theme are called using require_once() so if you drag over the file into your child theme it’s not actually doing anything.

What you want to do is copy the function inside that file and add it to your functions.php file in your child theme. Or keep it how you did it but you’ll need to call it in functions.php (in the child theme) like this:

require_once( get_template_directory() .'/functions/social.php' );

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I tried your first option and added…

<?php

function wpex_get_social() { // ‘youtube’ => ‘youtube’, ‘facebook’ => ‘facebook’, ‘twitter’ => ‘twitter’, // ‘google’ => ‘google’, // ‘dribbble’ => ‘dribbble’, // ‘pinterest’ => ‘pinterest’, // ‘myspace’ => ‘myspace’, // ‘tumblr’ => ‘tumblr’, // ‘vimeo’ => ‘vimeo’, // ‘behance’ => ‘behance’, // ‘github’ => ‘github’, // ‘flickr’ => ‘flickr’, // ‘forrst’ => ‘forrst’, // ‘rss’ => ‘rss’, // ‘mail’ => ‘mail’ ); }

//return array
return apply_filters('wpex_get_social', $social_icons);

?>

to my child theme functions.php page.

However, this breaks the site with the following error…

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wpex_get_social() (previously declared in /home/xxx/public_html/www.australianbusinessexecutive.com.au/wp-content/themes/Bloggit-child/functions.php:8) in /home/xxx/public_html/www.australianbusinessexecutive.com.au/wp-content/themes/wpex-bloggit/functions/social.php on line 34

Any ideas what I’ve done wrong?

WPExplorer

Oh sorry, I just had a look at the original file. You can’t copy it over because it will conflict, the parent theme would need a function_exists() check so you can do that.

But there is no need to copy it over, because of the apply_filters() function….example of how to use an action hook to change the array…

add_action('wpex_get_social','change_default_social_array');
function change_default_social_array() {
    $social_icons = array( 
            'twitter' => 'twitter',
            'facebook' => 'facebook',
            'google' => 'google',
            'dribbble' => 'dribbble', 
            'pinterest' => 'pinterest',
            'myspace' => 'myspace',
            'tumblr' => 'tumblr',
            'vimeo' => 'vimeo',
            'youtube' => 'youtube',
            'behance' => 'behance',
            'github' => 'github',
            'flickr' => 'flickr',
            'forrst' => 'forrst',
            'rss' => 'rss',
            'mail' => 'mail'
        );    return $social_icons;

}

Hello,

Is it possible to add a logo/image in the header? The coding in header.php seems to suggest you can but I can’t find where on the dashboard the change is made.

<header id=”header” class=”clearfix”> <?php // Show custom image logo if defined in the admin

Thanks.

Hi! I’m kind of sad to report that my blog still have the issue of Google Adsense. My banners still not display the banners. I have updated to “bloggit v1.2” Also I made new announcement in my Adsense account, and also update to wordpress 3.6. Any idea?

Default-user

Duh! “my blog still not display the Ads banners”** sorry.

Any suggestion? Anyone?

I thought your last comment meant that you figured it out.

I would be glad to help, but I would need to see the URL in question because its impossible for me to help without seeing anything.

Hi, is this theme pretty lightweight or pretty heavy? I got decent hosting, that can handle most themes. But what’s the average load time on shared hosting would you say? Also, does this have any built in share buttons or trackers? As in, are there Facebook, Twitter, and/or google plus trackers built in with possibly JavaScript sharing? Or any kind of trackers built into it?

Thank you, very sleek looking theme!

WPExplorer

Hi there,

I get very fast results on my live demo (3.2 seconds) – http://cl.ly/image/3w3f0y0m2628.

I host my demos on WPEngine though which is really fast and also has a CDN.

There are no built-in sharing options, simply because there are sooo many great plugins out there for that already.

Hello, I have a question I purchased the theme a while ago and i’ve been loving it ever since, so much that I am required to change my website to a full width homepage. Is there any way I can change a page to an entire full page (meaning no background either, banners from side to side) I offer a webpage with this kind of theme feature for reference: www.oldschoolvalue.com let me know if I can change that.

WPExplorer

Based on the example all you really want to do is make the background white…You should be able to do that by removing the background option in the theme panel, setting the background to white, then removing the box shadow from the main elements.

If you need some extra help with customizations I recommend Microlancer – www.microlancer.com/explore/wordpress-customization

My blog is very slow, you can update the theme and add support for Google Analytics statistics and eliminate a plugin just for that?

Thanks

WPExplorer

A Google Analytics plugin will not slow down your site. Unless the plugin you are using is adding a ton of bloat. If you really think it would make a difference, you can always place your code manually in header.php (super easy anyway).

The demo for this theme loads in 3.2 seconds – http://cl.ly/image/3w3f0y0m2628 – on my server, I use WPEngine which is one of the best WordPress host out there its possible maybe you need to upgrade your server?

If you want to share your URL I can help tell you were the slowness is coming from.

ps: I’ll put in the next update a couple options for site tracking to the admin ;)

fanoestudio

Thanks for answering so fast. I know that Google Analytics plugin by itself does not slow down the web but the problem is that now I have installed 10 essential plugins like WP Super Cache, Wordpress SEO, Jetpack, Google Analytics, etc … and I want to remove everything you can.

I used Pingdom and other tools and values ??are normal but can improve a lot. Anyway thank you for a detailed analysis, the url is www.tecnologiadj.com

WPExplorer

On my computer your site loaded in 1.78 seconds according to a Chrome extension I use that says how long the site takes to load.

I don’t think you need to worry about speed much ;) Focus on your content!

WPExplorer

If you want to optimize though for google there are a few things you might want to do…

- Use image compression – maybe checkout the Smushit Plugin

- Set an expiry date of at least 7 days in your HTTP headers for static sources.

- Enable gzip on your server

But generally speaking your site is fast as heck!

fanoestudio

Thank you for your fantastic support. I use Smushit Plugin and I would to work in the other options like gzip and the HTTP headers

Hi AJ, can i get the Symple Shortcode premium plugin? to be used with this theme and may i know if it will work well with page builder on this theme.

Thanks for your work.

adewalelagos

In addition, if the symple shortcode premium is available for purchase pls share the link so that i could make a purchase.

WPExplorer

PM me via my profile page and I’ll email it. By Page builder do you mean Visual Composer? If you have Visual Composer active, then the shortcodes plugin will hide the icon in the editor and all the shortcodes are added automatically to the visual composer ;)

WPExplorer

Its not available for purchase, sorry ;(

adewalelagos

Just PM you.

The Ajax Load More button on my author pages is loading blogs by other authors.

Example: http://cocktailenthusiast.com/author/mark-schectman —If you “load more” on that page, the first post that loads (right now) is the “Anglel’s Envy Cask…” post… which is by a different author.

Could this be because my urls are root/postname?

Please advise – thanks.

Great theme, BTW.

Seems like a bug in the theme itself.

Can you contact me via my profile page (with the account used to make the purchase) so I can have a look? This way I can also send you any files needing updates directly via email.

Hi,

I’m getting the following error when activating the optionsframework plugin, any idea what is causing this? Fatal error: Cannot redeclare optionsframework_rolescheck() (previously declared in /home/futuresh/public_html/dna.com/wp-content/themes/wpex-bloggit/admin/options-framework.php:31) in /home/futuresh/public_html/dna.com/wp-content/plugins/options-framework/options-framework.php on line 61

WPExplorer

The options panel is now built into the theme so you do not need the plugin. The error pretty much says the same thing.

Cannot redeclare optionsframework_rolescheck() (previously declared in themes/wpex-bloggit/admin/options-framework.php:31

Since the admin is already built-in it won’t allow you to activate the plugin because it would conflict.

Please let me know if you read somewhere that you needed to install the plugin, I thought I had updated the documentation, if I did not, my apologies!

Just bought the theme..very nice! I do have one question however, how do i enable the “load more” feature on the home page and else where? I checked the box under blog in the theme options but it still displays all my blogs in a long list.

WPExplorer

Hi there,

The only thing I can think of is your site is set to show a large amount of posts per page, can you double check under Settings->Reading. It’s the option that reads “Blog pages show at most”.

Awesome , thanks for the help. It worked!

Hi there,

I’m using your theme for a second site that, structure wise, is the same as the first one that works successfully. However, on the second site, I cannot get feature gallery to work (the smaller gallery is working).

Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

Hi again…just an update. I can specify a “Slider Alternative Single Image” and it shows up. And if you view the source of the page, you can see the code is there for the slider. However, you just can’t see the slider on the page. As I said, I’ve got this site set up exactly as the other one (http://australianbusinessexecutive.com.au/) and that works fine. I’ve wasted far too much time on this and I fear the solution is something simple…it usually always is :o(

Default-user

Another Update – If I activate the previous version of your theme (1.03) the featured slider works. It’s only when I activate the new version (1.2) that it doesn’t. I’ve got a child version of 1.2 that is active right now…but that’s no different to the (http://australianbusinessexecutive.com.au/ site where I do not have any problems.

Default-user

Back again…fixed it. Deactivated all plugins and reactivated them one by one – it was something to do with the “Options Framework” plugin…I don’t know…but it was also to do with the order I set up my second site to look like the first one. In any case, Options Framework reactivation sorted it out. I feel like I can breath again :o)

WPExplorer

Great!

ps: The plugin is no longer needed since version 1.1 – http://www.wpexplorer.org/changelogs/bloggit/

hey anytime I add Google analytics I get erros. No matter where I add the code it does not want to work. I also tried a bunch of plugins. Any thoughts? Oh also when I activate W3 total cache it breaks the mobile version

WPExplorer

1. Did you try adding your tracking code manually in header.php?

2. Total Cache conflicts with the retina support in this theme. You have 2 options. PM us and we can email you an updated theme with a fix and/or disable the retina support via the theme options (option added in the latest version).

Inhousewebsolutions

1. Yep… I have put everywhere I could think of an no dice….... Any thoughts?

2. All sorted. thanks!

WPExplorer

Only thing I can think of is your site is being cached and so the tracking isn’t actually in the front end code. You’ve cleared your cache correct?

Inhousewebsolutions

Yeah it was there…. I found it strange but I implemented cloud flare today and I used there app so it all worked out.

WPExplorer

sweet!

Inhousewebsolutions
Oh one more thing. I want to move the post navigation at the bottom of single-post.php to be right under the post tags…. I tried moving this to right below the area in the source file but it did not work. Any suggestions? “ <?php next_post_link('%link', '? %title', false); ?> <?php previous_post_link('%link', '%title ?', false); ?> <!- /post-pagination ->”
WPExplorer

I can’t really tell what you did, but if you moved code around you should see a change. If you have cloudfalre enabled as you mentioned above, be sure to set it in development mode and/or clear the cache so you can see changes.

Hi,

Thanks for the theme.

I would like to be able to add deals to categories that then can be put on certain pages that will be mainly towns. is this possible?

WPExplorer

The Deals post type has it’s own Category taxonomy you can use to organize them, but to actually place a deal on a standard post type category wouldn’t be possible without editing your template files.

All of a sudden my sidebar is messed up. It is at the bottom of all posts and pages (not homepage).

HI Charlie,

You have too many items in your main navigation so the last item is pushing down below causing the main layout to break. You’ll need to trim up the navigation a bit or decrease the padding between menu items to make them all fit.

I have a few questions about this theme before purchasing.

My client wants something like this: http://jennamarblesblog.com/ and yours seems pretty similar.

1) Is it possible to have a taller logo or a full width banner? Years ago I purchased your Classy Business theme and it had an option to have a full width banner at the top (and was pretty easy to adjust the height).

2) I realize you’re using a plugin for the slider, so this may not be possible… But can you have thumbnails in the sidebar of the slider like they do here? http://jennamarblesblog.com (under past episodes)

Thanks for your time. :)

WPExplorer

Hi there,

1. There isn’t an option built-in for a full banner, however, its easy to do. All you need to do is upload your custom logo via the theme panel then add a little CSS to pull the logo outside of the padding (using negative margins) and then making the logo full-width and hiding the ad area. It’s a simple CSS edit.

2. Unfortunately this would be very tricky to do. Depends how much your client is paying you, you could exchange the built-in slider for your own custom slider that has such design or maybe use a third party WordPress plugin to add this, I’m not aware of one that looks just like that, but there is probably one out there ;)

Hey! I have my site on a VPS, w3 total cache and cloudflare and it still loads on average in 8 secs. I have checked this on Google page speed and everything. Any thoughts?

WPExplorer

Sounds a bit slow. I’m getting about half that time on my server – http://cl.ly/image/2O0d3D1t1F3i

If you want to share your URL maybe I can give you some tips! And also check on my end, maybe it’s just loading a bit slow for you?

Inhousewebsolutions

I did some slimming down of stuff and got it according to pingdom to 5ish seconds but when I actually go to the site it loads real slow and I am on a fast connection. I counted 17secs a couple times….. Weird thing though is posts load fine. It is just the front page.

http://guessthiscity.com/
WPExplorer

Your site loaded for me on an average of 1.95 seconds, I tried a few times….

I do see its pulling content from cloudflare at the moment though because the site “is currently offline” – so I wonder if its really the server causing you problems, because when fetched from CloudFlare its nearly instant.

If you remind me I can take another look tomorrow, when hopefully its back up!

Inhousewebsolutions

Hey I got the server back up and it is back to the slow load….. I noticed the cloudflare cached version was fast too… go check it out when you get a chance

WPExplorer

Hi,

On average your site loaded in around 2-3 seconds, which is fast! However, when I sat there spamming the refresh button (with cache killer enabled) a few times it did load pretty slow around 6-10 seconds.

Checking at the loading analysis though it was showing that 50% of that time was spent waiting/connecting to your server. Which isn’t something I can help ya with.

Who are you hosted with, if you don’t mind me asking?
