Hey again,

For some reason when I click on my authors name, it does not take me to an author page. It comes up with a 404 page. How can I fix this?

Thanks,

Mike

Once again, figured it out, I guess your nick name cannot have a space in it for this to work.

WPExplorer

That’s weird. Thought this issue was fixed: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2467

Either way, glad you fixed it on your site!

WPExplorer

Please extract the zip you got from themeforest then located the “Upload” folder, the theme is located in here, that’s what you need to install.

Thanks for the purchase!

Hi, I just bought the theme I am having issues enabling the latest post section on the main page. it shows blank. what am i missing here? do i have to assign certain pages from the post section to this category? your help will be appreciated

Jim

WPExplorer

The homepage should work automatically showing your latest posts.

Make sure under Settings->Reading you don’t have any static page set.

If you want me to have a look, please open a support ticket as requested in the theme documentation and I’ll take a look ;)

HayDiosMio

got it, thanks for the quick response

WPExplorer

sure thing. Enjoy!

HayDiosMio

last one of the day , i think.. on the tags i just want to show 10-15 of them not over 50, is there a way to enable them? Jim

WPExplorer

Not sure what you mean…on the tag cloud widget?

HayDiosMio

correct

HayDiosMio

one more on your home page, you page featured post and latest post, how do i separate both? right now i am showing both titles with the same content Sincerely,

Jim

HayDiosMio

discard the last one , I got it, but I still need help with the tags cloud widget

WPExplorer

I dont think there is any way in WordPress to select what tags to show in the tagcloud (its a core WP widget). Maybe there is a plugin that can do this for you? – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=tagcloud

HayDiosMio

thanks i will look for a plug

HayDiosMio

found another issue it seems that when a page on the post is centered and pushes the sidebar lower instead of being at the same level. I can share my screen with you and show you via joinme.com let me know if you are available. it does not look right

Jim

WPExplorer

Not quite sure what you mean. Do you see this issue on my live demo?

You can always open a ticket at wpthemehelp.com as mentioned in the docs so you can share the URL and I can help you out!

HayDiosMio

ok will do

WPExplorer ,

on the main page, how do i enable the slideshow to be auto slide?

Sincerely,

Jim

WPExplorer

Which slider? The full-width one that has the tabs or the smaller one thats just images?

In the future if you can open tickets for support at wpthemehelp.com it would be fantastic, this way I can assist people in the order in which questions are asked so its fair, also leave Themeforest open for pre-sale questions and finally when tickets are resolved they can be added to a knowledge base to help everyone ;)

HayDiosMio

same one as your theme on the front page top one Jim

How do I correctly update my previous version to the one released on 1/24? Tried just uploading and got “directory already exists”

Thanks!

WPExplorer

Because the theme is already installed the only way to re-upload to WordPress is by changing the name of the zip so that you have access to both versions.

The best (and easiest) way to update is to replace your theme files via FTP.

Default-user

Any more detailed direction so I do not mess it up would be appreciated.

WPExplorer

Not sure how much more detailed I can get…You can either:

1. Download the latest version. Rename the theme zip to anything, bloggit-new.zip would work. Then upload via WordPress. Like the error says you can’t upload a zip of the same name.

2. If you haven’t made any changes to your template files, then you can download the latest version, extract, locate the theme and the drag all the files via FTP to replace the current theme files.

I hope we can get this solved today, Also on the main slideshow when click it does not takes me to the “Link Format URL” Enter the url for your link format URL.

it takes me to the image.

Sincerely,

Jim

WPExplorer

It shouldn’t take you to the image, it should take you to the post. I can update the theme to have it go to the custom URL, its a quick update. Please open a ticket on the support site.

HayDiosMio

there is a a section on the post to insert the custom url, however it does not work

WPExplorer

See my response above. I said in the slider it goes to the post. I can update if you open a ticket.

The custom URL should work on the actual post entries as you can see in the demo. Don’t forget the http://

HayDiosMio

ticket was open with sample image. the http:// it is there

I’m having trouble with videos in the larger slider – nothing seems to play. I’ve dropped the correct URL into the ‘oEmbed URL’ on the post page, and selected ‘Video’ under format box, but the slider only displays a gray box with off-center play button that does nothing. Same result with both public youtube videos and vimeo. They work if i view the post individually, but will not play in the slider. Love the rest of the theme, but I bought it specifically for video functionality. Any ideas?

WPExplorer

Have you added a Featured image for your video post? The featured image will show up before you click the play button. This allows the slider to be used with touch motions as you can’t touch and swipe iframes. As well as it fixes issues if you ever change your slider to auto-rotate.

WPExplorer

Oh also, there was a little issue with the video on the slider which I fixed up a while back – changelog on the theme page:

Make sure you have the correct version, thanks!

Hello There.
Pre sale question: For thumbnail on front page, Is it possible for me to use feature image or first post image? Is this theme using timthumb?
thank.

WPExplorer
  • The theme is setup for using the featured image. If you don’t have featured images set you can maybe use a plugin like this:
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-auto-featured-image/

If you don’t have a featured image though, the post will still render.

  • I do NOT use Timbthumb i use core WordPress functions to crop images via the Aqua Resizer function.

I just installed the theme and now I have two of the same images showing on each post

http://bit.ly/Y3izme

Please advise.

WPExplorer

One is the featured image, the other looks like it’s inserted into the post.

There is an option in the theme panel – Appearance->Theme Options->Blog to disable the featured image on the posts. It’s under the heading “Featured Image/Video on single posts?”

Hiya, purchased yesterday and absolutely love it! One issue though, the play button on the first slider still does not seem to work. Added the video, added the featured image, Play button does “react” very briefly but then does nothing. Tried on iPad, interestingly there it triggers whatever menu option is closest to where I touch. Any ideas?

Thanks for a great theme!

Edit: Oh and there’s one more thing which I didn’t want to ask at first because I’m sure I’m just too thick to find the solution: If “Featured” is the category I choose for the upper slider, how do I get the slider to say anything other than Featured if I chose several categories for a post? Tried with subcategories but always displays the Featured category only. Thanks heaps!

WPExplorer
  • Regarding the video. Because it does work for me and other users I’m thinking there might be an issue localized to your site. Can you please submit a ticket as mentioned in the docs at wpthemehelp.com – please provide at least the URL, logins would be ideal
  • That’s a good point. Clearly after coding for longs hours I didn’t think about that ;) The only way for it to show another category name is if that post is in another category with a name which first letter starts with a letter that comes before the first letter of the name of he featured category (sounds a bit tricky, hope you understand). – If you wan to submit this issue to my support site I’d be glad to patch up the theme. I can probably make the slider exclude the featured category and then show the second category it’s in.

Thanks for the reply! I’ll submit tickets for both issues rightaway. I did realise something in regard to the videos though: all YouTube videos play just fine, it’s the one Vimeo URL I added that’s not working properly (http://vimeo.com/58883285#). But I’ll send more details via ticket. Thanks again :)

Hi,

what the short code to incorporate a slide just like the one on the main page? the one above the latest posts..

or like this one: http://themeforest.net/item/bloggit-responsive-wordpress-blogmagazinenews/full_screen_preview/3866432

Sincerely,

Jim

WPExplorer

There isn’t a built-in shortcode for sliders (too much bloat for a blog theme).

If you require a slider plugin to insert sliders anywhere, I personally like Soliloquy here is my Soliloquy Plugin Review – they have a free version on WP.org and a premium version.

Of course there are many other great solutions on the WP plugin repository.

HayDiosMio

same template from above under short codes >> sliders

WPExplorer

Generally its bad practice to have that sort of thing built-into a theme. If you ever switch to another theme, your sliders will stop working. I haven’t added slider shortcode to the symple shortcodes yet, but ill add it to my todo list!

See my initial response ;)

HayDiosMio

thanks, update coming soon?

WPExplorer

I’ll add it to my list of things to do…which is basically a massive book. I wouldn’t be able to give you a time frame and I’m not even sure yet I will be adding this – there are way too many great slider plugins out there already.

Hi, I bought the template but i don’t know how to upload the author’s photo.

WPExplorer

Your author’s photo in WordPress is defined by the email they use and the gravatar associated with it:

https://en.gravatar.com/

Thanks for the purchase!
Default-user

thank you!

Default-user

Ok i have a gravatar account and when i write an article, the author’s photo appear in preview. But when i click to the author’s name and i read all post of that author, the photo doesnìt appear. I need to copy some code? Where?

WPExplorer

This is weird…maybe its simply cached by the browser? The photo on the post and the author page is using the same exact function so it should work just fine.

If you want to open a ticket at wpthemehelp.com I can take a closer look.

Default-user

I open the ticket. I ‘ve realized also the author information dont’appear. Why? I need help! Please. I need to copy some code?

WPExplorer

You don’t need to copy any code there must be something weird with your WordPress installation. I will look at the ticket once it’s your turn in the queue. Thank you for your patience.

i used the italian version of WordPress 3.5.1.

Hi. for some reason the Video oEmbed widget does not load properly i have to refresh the page a couple of times in order to show up.

Sincerely,

Jim

WPExplorer

You can open a ticket and share the URL if you want. My guess is maybe the youtube/vimeo or whatever site you are using is having some issues with their API or some plugin is creating a little bug.

Beautiful theme. I am very close to getting it, although I would like to see some more screenshots of the theme options pages if I can. Or better yet if there is a demo to check out.

WPExplorer

Glad you like the theme ;)

I made a little video overview here for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mo9mJJfujtg&feature=youtu.be

Default-user

Wow, thanks for doing that. Looks like the theme has a lot of good options. I like how you can turn off the breaking news/search bar.

What I didnt see, or overlooked, was the ability to turn off the smaller slideshow. Also, is there a way to make the front page posts look more like standard blog posts instead of the magazine style posts?

WPExplorer

No problem ;)

  • By default the sliders won’t show unless you select a category for it. So if you don’t select a category for the small slider then it won’t show up ;)
  • What do you mean “standard posts”. I didn’t know there was a defined standard for how blog posts should look 8-) Can you give me an example?
Default-user

lol, sorry. I guess it would also be called “single” view. I like the magazine style layout of the front, small excerpt with thumbnail, however I run an art site so having either larger thumbnails or a blog style front with the full post visible right off the bat would be great. I sent you an email with my current site so you can see what I am trying to update and make more current.

Thank you for a very clean and responsive theme. I do have one question, at the bottom of the demo you have a scroll showing photos which you can scroll from left to right. Can you assist me on how you accomplished this look. Thanking you in advance. P.S. I looked in the docs but didn’t see it.

WPExplorer

Hi there,

Thanks for the purchase, glad you like it!

The carousel if very easy to setup. In the theme panel there is an option in the footer tab called “Footer Carousel Category” – here you can choose the category of posts for this section.

Quick question, in the demo blog on the large slider category it shows multiple categories – travel, sports, food, etc… In the large slider category it only allows one to be selected from the drop down. How do I get multiple categories to show on my home page? Thank you.

WPExplorer

Hi Wellsb,

I actually added an update so that the slider would ignore the category name you choose from the drop-down and then show the next available one.

You might be using an outdated version. If you re-download you can locate the file at includes/slider-one.php and replace with yours.

Are you able to do this?

Default-user
wellsb Purchased

I downloaded the latest version (1.1) and in the theme options it still says to select a category under large category slider. If I don’t select a category nothing will be displayed. When I select a category it then appears. Not a big deal, but I would like to have more than one category show.

WPExplorer

I think you are over thinking it ;)

Simply make a new category called “Featured Slider” or anything you want really. Then add the posts you want included to this category. It’s likely those posts will then also be in other categories.

Make sense now?

You’re right, I was over thinking it. Thank you.
