You have a bug in your CSS.

I’ts not possible to add a list within a blockquote, it’s displayed outside the div. Example:

<blockquote> asdasdasdasd asdasdasdadsd dasdasdasdasd adsads asd: asdsd adsasdasdsad <ul> <li>dfsf sdf dsfsadsadsada</li> <li>gfsg s safdsadfghhgfd </li> <li>gs fd sfds fsdf sfd sf</li> <li>sd fsdf sdf sdf sdfsd</li> </ul> </blockquote>

This is also the case if you use h2 and h3 tags within a blockquote.

simnor

Hi, this isn’t a bug, blockquotes are designed for just paragraph text, not headings, unordered lists etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blockquote_element If you would like to use formatting of headers and lists in the blockquote then you’ll need to add the css inside the blockquote element, something like this: http://pastie.org/8208451 you can add that to the theme options page under the Styling tab, in the Custom CSS field.

Is it possible for video posts to just show the embedded video as the featured “image” instead of an image + play video button?

simnor

Hi, I’m afraid not (you could hire a developer to do it though), the way the theme works is that the video code is stored in a textarea and then when you click the play link it adds that code to the video area, so it’s not a case of hiding some elements and the player is behind it.

First of all, awesome theme. When I put an image on a widget, it shows a faded effect with mouseover. How can I set 100% opacity with no mouseover? Sorry about my english. Thanks.

simnor

Hi, if you add this:

sidebar .widget a { opacity: 1; }

to the Styling -> Custom CSS field in the theme options, that will fix it.

Hi simnor,

your theme is very good! But I got a problem with the translations:

I’m using the “Polylang” translation plugin, but it seems that isn’t compatible with your .po file in ”/languages”.

Have you tried this plugin? Or do you suggest another plugin already tested?

Thanks!

now is working! Thanks anyway.

Hi thanks for your great theme !

Question : how i can show ” continue reading ” ? on a page , please ?

cheers

simnor

Hi, do you mean on a post? If so then you can use the more tag, there’s a video here explaining how to do that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEYtACE7KVU

I don’t think more tags work on pages because you’d need to be on the page in the first place to view any of the page content.

Hi simnor, this is great, just what I was looking for! Just a couple of quick questions:

1) Is there an option to display the Categories from the main navigation (with the category names showing on dropdown)?

2) Is there an option to add custom elements to the side column, and potentially stick a few ads in there?

Thanks in advance! Mark

Hi Simnor, Great theme!

I do have an issue though, I want to change the color of the menu and text within the sidebar widgets and it doesn’t appear to be changing even with edits within the css file and theme options. Is there a way to get around this?

simnor

Hi, could you show me the code you’re adding please? You may want to use the support system over here: http://simnorlabs.com/support/ for that if you have problems posting it here.

Hello, Simnor.

I have a few prepurchase questions I hope you can answer.

1. Is there color schemes in the theme options to change all the green to something like blue or will that require a bit of css changes?

2. About updates. The license you buy, is it including one year product updates, lifetime updates or even no updates?

3. Does it include WordPresses own custom header and background?

Regards Sebastian

simnor

Hi,

1) You can change the colours via colour pickers in the theme options: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/5187314-blogtime-blogging-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme?index=3

2) Themeforest doesn’t have a set amount of time of updates, I normally do a minimum of 2 years but as this is a blogging theme that only really uses WordPress functions and scripts it should last a lot longer than that. In terms of updates I do, it’s normally (if required) at each major WordPress update (3.6, 3.7 etc.) unless bugs are reported.

3) Nope it doesn’t, you can see all the options that are available in the screenshots: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/5187314-blogtime-blogging-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme

hello. I have to ask you some questions pre purchase

1) I have read the questions that you have already done, but the question I have left.      I can change the color of the text widget, without using CSS codes?

I have to insert a logo that has dark colors. The background color will be lighter as a result the text widget should be a little more dark. I just need this to be able to decide to buy this beautiful theme.

/ / / You’re the one that satisfied me. There is everything I was looking for. Top menu, sidebar on the right, the post is perfect with the right sizes. / / /

He hoped only that the colors of any theme you can change

Continues to create wordpress theme, THANK YOU.

(Sorry for my english, I’m Italian. I used google translator.)

Hi, you would need to change some CSS I’m afraid. If you take a look at this image: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/5187314-blogtime-blogging-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme?index=3&url_name=blogtime-blogging-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme these are the colours you can change without needing to use CSS.

Cheers, Simon

hi – like the clean layout a lot. is it possible to add some social media sharing-functionality? there are some plugins – but they will not fit into the layout very well – do you have any plans to add something that fits in this great design?

simnor

Hi, I know some people have used this http://jetpack.me/support/sharing/ with the BlogTime theme and it actually looks very nice, so I’d give that a try.

hi- is it possible to assign to each category a different headline background color?

simnor

Hi, no I’m afraid this is not a feature of the theme so you’d need to hire a developer to add this as it’s a customization.

Hello Simon,

Let me start off by saying this is the best theme I’ve ever used.

I have request I thought you might wanted to implement to your theme since I think, without knowing though, that I am not the only one who miss this feature. In many blogging themes when you click a post and opens it as a “page”, I am sure you know what I mean, there is a box called about the author at the bottom typical displaying a few lines about the author as well as the profile picture. I would love to see this implemented one day.

Hope you would consider it. Cheers, Sebastian.

simnor

Hi, there are plugins for this kind of thing, something like this for example: http://wordpress.org/plugins/author-bio-box/

Hope that helps

This theme looks awesome, but I have a few things to ask before deciding to buying it instead of a competitor’s theme:

1) Do you plan to do any update to its design? A sharing bar at the bottom of each post is fundamental to any template. I miss this option on yours. Sure we could just install a plugin for that, but wouldn’t look so good like if it was a native option. Take a look at the Bliss template here on TF as an example.

2) Is it possible to add an “Author” section on the sidebar? I mean, would you consider doing this update? Sure it can be done by inserting HTML code on a widget, but for no-programmers that’s very hard.

3) Is it possible to add a header section with a subscription option? Like this: viverdeblog.com

Thanks for your attention and congrats for the great looking theme.

simnor

Hi, thanks for your comments

1) I don’t tend to update the design of a theme once it’s released because it would affect current users who bought the theme with it’s currently look, I only update bugs etc. The problem with doing it natively is that when there’s a change to a social network we have to go in and update the theme and then you guys have update it, whereas using a plugin makes the process much easier for everyone.

2) I’m a strong believer in not packing themes with features, anything that can be a plugin should be in a plugin as a theme is design, not functionality. That said, I’m not sure what you mean by an author section in the sidebar?

3) It would require editing the code, and falls outside of the scope of support I can provide I’m afraid as it’s a customisation and not an issue with setting up the theme.

Cheers :)

Hello. I am not sure if this is a problem with my browser or a bug within the theme. I have added an image to a text widget, but it won’t show on my website when I use Safari. Yet if I use Firefox or Chrome it shows. I have already tried to delete my cache.

simnor

Hi, could you send me an email through the form on my profile page: http://themeforest.net/user/simnor along with a link to your site so I can take a look.

Simon,

I am really interested in buying your theme. It looks very clean and simple, but I have a few questions

1) All of your themes seem to have a problem formatting the “website” field box in the comments section to look/format like the “name” and “email” field. At least they all appear weird in firefox. Can this be fixed?

2) I like the design quite a bit but find that the green boxed main titles cover much of the image (depending on the length of your title). This takes away from the image especially in your image slider examples. Can the opacity be reduced? Also, can the color be changed?

3) I am hoping to use this blog to record my travels with many pictures. I would like to post them by city/country. I didn’t see much support for multiple galleries of images. Do you have any examples that?

4) Also, does your site support categories? It appears that it does, but the example didn’t show them.

My apologies for my limited wordpress experience.

Thank you!

(and when I mention that I didn’t see categories, I meant in the main menu across the top – I saw them down the right side)

simnor

Hi,

1) It looks like the demo might be using the old version of the theme, the most recent version of it the field looks like the other fields.

2) You can reduce the opacity by adding some custom css, and you can change the colour using the theme options: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/5187314-blogtime-blogging-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme?index=3&url_name=blogtime-blogging-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme

3) I’m not sure what you mean by multiple galleries. You can have 1 gallery per post, and add multiple posts.

4) Yes it does

Simon, really enjoying the theme! Do you have any plans to make the theme compatible with IE 11?

I noticed that some of the elements on the page did not appear properly – the menu was cut off and the sidebar with the tags, text, and categories does not seem to wrap the text properly.

I would provide you with screenshots but I don’t have IE 11 at home. I noticed it while looking at the website in a store with laptops.

Steven

simnor

Thanks for letting me know, I’ll take a look next time I have access to IE 11

Cheers

Default-user

Simon, I noticed all of the new windows 8 machines are coming preloaded with IE 11, so I really appreciate you taking a look at it. I noticed this will viewing the website on an 11” Lenovo Yoga computer with IE 11. I wanted to buy the computer for use with travels but may have to change themes if I do.

simnor

Hi, so I’ve just done a browserstack test for IE 11 and this is what it returns: http://www.browserstack.com/screenshots/2524803e312715308cb1f48cc74e455e35d3314d/win7_ie_11.0.jpg Could you send me a link to your site via my profile page please so that I can do a test on your site.

Cheers

Default-user

Link sent, although I don’t think browserstack.com replicates the same high resolution as the machine I was working on. It’s max resolution appears lower.

Another question, I noticed when I upload media/images and use them as the featured image in a post none of my wordpress image scaling or cropping is acknowledge. For example I have uploaded an image directly from my digital camera and I wanted to scale it down in wordpress and crop it. So I used the wordpress edit image function to crop it and then change the scale. After doing that and updating the image and post it doesn’t appear to change at all. Am I doing something wrong?

simnor

Hi, responded to your question your email.

Hi! Your theme supports different language than English? (Fully) Will it works with Cyrillic fonts? And i suppose that possible to change green color to any other?

simnor

It comes with the standard .mo and .po localisation files. I’m not sure about Cyrillic though as I don’t know what extra requirements are needed to be able to show that. Yeah there’s an option in the admin to change the colours: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/5187314-blogtime-blogging-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme?index=3&url_name=blogtime-blogging-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme

Hello!

How I can add new font into theme? I was added to css file @import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:400,400italic,700,700italic&subset=latin,cyrillic-ext,cyrillic,latin-ext); and rename all “Lato” to “Roboto”, but it’s not work.

Thanks, Oleg

simnor

Hi, you can try adding it as the <link href= option in Google Web Fonts instead of @import in header.php under the < ?php wp_head(); ?> line.

Hey Simon! I have two questions for you. First of all, I can see you have placed FontAwesome in the credit text. Is it possible to add their icons to the menu?

Then I was thinking about demo content. Is it possible to get the demo content from the demo, to have something to work with until my website is done?

Sebastian

simnor

Hi, I’m not sure what you mean by credit text, but yes you can add icons using replacing NAME with the icon name from here: http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/cheatsheet/ (without the fa- bit, so star instead of fa-star).

For the demo xml file can you send me a message via my profile page, that way I can email it to you.

Cheers

I found you demo content, on you website, but I am not quite sure what you mean by replacing NAME? Where would I replace it, because it is not in CSS Classes.

simnor

OK I’m confused, could you clarify you’re original question about the credit text as I wasn’t sure what that meant?

Chers

Default-user
Sambhur Purchased

I will, try as english is not my first language. On Themeforest you have a credit text at the bottom of the page where you give credit to Fontawesome. That made me wonder if it were possible to add fontawesome icons to the menu on your theme through CSS Classes? Hope I made it easier to understand.

simnor

Hi, it looks like ThemeForest didn’t save my original reply properly and that’s where the confusion is, so I’ve pasted the answer to pastie: http://pastie.org/9003793

Hope that helps.

I love the theme thank you so much. How do I remove where it says posted by next to the date. I only want the date, thank you.
