I would like to know how to hide all blog posts in the grid. Only showing my featured posts. Thank you for the awesome A++ support and updates! Best theme for tumblr period.

PixelMoxie

Hello there! Not entirely sure that’s possible. What about posts that aren’t featured? Are they supposed to be shown somewhere else on the site in any way? Regards.

Default-user

The post that aren’t featured I would like to just hide them until I feature them. I don’t mind if they are seen on the site via the search bar or direct link. The main thing is just removing the blog grid. I do hope this is possible. Thank you so much.

PixelMoxie

Well, hiding posts without the featured tag with CSS alone won’t work—I tried. You get a lot of transparent boxes on the grid. Plus you don’t have featured posts near the top of the grid so nothing would show when the page first loads.

The only thing I can think of is to include your featured tag (seems to be ‘elva’) as one of the portfolio filters, so it shows on the dropdown.

Then, edit the theme and at the very end, before the closing </body> tag, add the following code:

<script>
    $( window ).load( function() {
        $( '.cd-dropdown > span' ).trigger( 'mousedown' );
        $( '.cd-dropdown li[data-value="elva"]' ).click();
    });
</script>

That would trigger the ‘elva’ item on the filter after the page is fully loaded, filtering the portfolio results. Of course the rest of the posts will be available if the user picks a different filter.

Or you could go to your dashboard and set all non-featured posts as “private”. That would be quote time consuming, but it’s the only bulletproof way to make the posts non-available.

I hope this helps.

Hello! I actually tried this solution, but it didn’t work for me. When it flickers, the header is actually dragging down as the page scrolls down. It only begins to happen about 800 pixels down a page, and it’s more noticeable on longer pages.

Btw, this is a great theme you’ve made.

PixelMoxie

Hi swab,

I’m not sure what’s going on. Do you mean the header flickers when you scroll the page up and down? What solution have you tried? I don’t see that happening on the blogs I have the theme installed. Please provide a link to your site and let me know which browser (and its version) and operating system you’re using. You can email me using the form on my profile page if you prefer.

Cheers!

Only when scrolled down a certain point. I’ll email you the details.

Thank you for providing a solution that didn’t require updating. It worked. I never thought to look for updates, but now I will.

I’m glad to hear that. Cheers!

Hello Pixel Moxie!! Your theme gets better and better, thanks for the update. My question today is, do you know why my captions aren’t showing in the image posts? I write captions but they don’t appear when I post.

Default-user

Here you can see that they can’t be seen -> http://i62.tinypic.com/fclxg.jpg

PixelMoxie

Hi!

Captions will show under the images only when you use the “stacked images” layout for photosets. When using the photoset grids, captions display only when you open the image on the lightbox.

Hope that makes sense, cheers!

Default-user

It makes sense, though I can’t find the way to switch to stacked images option :s Is it a Tumblr setting or is it in the theme edit section?

PixelMoxie

What version of the theme you have installed? Make sure “Enable Photoset Grids” is switched off in the customizer.

Default-user

I have the last update installed. I’ll look for that option then :) Thanks

PixelMoxie

Cool, let me know if that fixes it for you!

Hello! I was wondering if there’s an option to change the limit to be less than 1024 px? Possibly around 700-800px? The theme keeps on making all of my images bigger which cause them to be extremely blurry. I can’t upload large images since I am afraid they might get stolen again. Help please!

This is my current page: http://devinboscole.tumblr.com/
PixelMoxie

Hi there!

First of all, I recommend you update the theme to the latest version (currently v1.3.6). If you enable the option “Prevent Image Upscaling”, your images won’t be stretched beyond their natural width. You could also enable “Enable Photoset Grids” and arrange the images side by side on the dashboard if they are too small.

Please let me know if that helps!

Default-user

PixelMoxie, thank you so much. I got it to work with the updated version. Two quick questions (1) Is there a way to disable the dropdown menu bar above the grid? http://i.imgur.com/QwovgC7.png (2) How do I remove the unnecessary space between the gird and the footer? http://i.imgur.com/F9Cz2Ao.png. Thanks!

PixelMoxie

Hi there,

To disable the filter just uncheck the option “Enable Portfolio Filter”.

To remove the whitespace above the footer, paste the following into the “Add Custom CSS” box, on the advanced options section:

#pagination { margin-bottom: 0; }
#page-footer { padding-top: 0; }

I hope that helps!

Default-user

Thanks! The code worked :)

I’m glad to hear that! Cheers!

Hi, just got the theme last night (love it) and have started working today. Is there a way to have the header always be the design/layout that’s shown in the “mobile” size? Where the title becomes centered and the Menu link becomes the icon on the left? Basically, can I have the code default to the mobile-view header style?

Also, I’m playing around with a text resizing jquery option for the header. Would I put that code in the “custom CSS” box (under the “Advanced” section), or just put it directly into the theme’s html? Thanks so much!

PixelMoxie

Hi there,

Thanks for your purchase! I’m glad you’re enjoying the theme :)

To your first question, I was going to say nope, no way. Than I messed with the CSS and came to a solution that sorta works. You need to paste the contents of the following pastebin into the “Add Custom CSS” box: http://pastebin.com/8FCG63tG

It will only work for the left aside, not the right one. Also, you lose the header fixed positioning. It’s either one thing or the other. I suggest you set “Header Height” and “Header Height Compact” to the same value.

To your second question, if you want to add some JavaScript code, edit the theme HTML and add it at the end, before the closing </body> tags, inside <script></script> tags.

I hope that helps!

Rated 5 stars! This theme is great as I’m digging into it. All the options are superb. Is there a way to copy the responsiveness of the “call-to-action” text onto the blog Title/Logo? In other words, the “call-to-action” goes from perfectly small (on a mobile size) to perfectly huge on a large screen with a large browser. Is there a way to copy that same responsiveness to the site Title/Logo when it’s just a text-based logo?

I’ve played around with the theme’s html (header stuff, title stuff, etc) and also tried adding additional @media CSS stuff for the header and tried a few other CSS things with font sizes but to no avail.

If this isn’t possible, no prob. I’ll just make the text logo size smaller, but I’d love to have a huge text title on big screen and one that fits between the nav/widget links on mobile without overlapping or getting cut off. Thanks so much for the awesome support!

PixelMoxie

Thanks for the stellar review :)

That can be accomplished easily with some media queries. Add this to the end of your Custom CSS:

#logo .text-logo {
    font-size: 24px;
    white-space: nowrap;
}

@media screen and (min-width: 48em) {
    #logo .text-logo { font-size: 32px; }
}

@media screen and (min-width: 60em) {
    #logo .text-logo { font-size: 48px; }
}

@media screen and (min-width: 80em) {
    #logo .text-logo { font-size: 60px; }
}

Then you can fine-tune the font sizes.

I hope that helps!

Baddabing. I was so close—just didn’t have the ”.text-logo” in my @media codes. I only had the #logo, so I presume it didn’t know where to apply it without it. (Learning about coding as I’m doing this, too.)

Thanks so much! A+++ ya’ll.

Hello, I have a question about the Featured Post feature in the latest update. Would it be possible to have the ‘view project’ button actually link to a category rather than the post itself. For our purposes, it would be really useful to have an image and a brief description of the categories with links going straight to them, and the featured posts would be a simple way to do that (provided I could tweak the functionality of that link).

Cheers.

PixelMoxie

Hi there! The “Featured Posts” block is generated with JavaScript, so it would be quite cumbersome to hack the code to make it do what you need.

If you want to use that space to showcase your categories only, I recommend you don’t use the featured posts at all, and enter the markup for your slides manually on the theme HTML source. Send me an email using the form on my profile page and I’ll point you on the right direction.

Cheers!

Hello, I am having trouble the the featured posts. I am trying to put up a video post as a featured project. I have enabled everything but the project still doesnt show up, infact the featured project section is just not seen anywhere on the site. This post is also tagged to a slug thing. Is there something that I am doing wrong? Please advice.

PixelMoxie

Hello there, thanks for your purchase.

Make sure “Enable Featured Posts” is checked, and that you have tagged your post(s) using the same exact word as on the “Featured Tag” field. Also, make sure to set a featured image for the posts as explained here on the docs: http://goo.gl/hKkGHl

If you have done all this and the posts doesn’t show, please send me an email using the form on my profile page, and include a link to your site and to the featured post, so I can look into it.

Best regards,

Sergio

Hey PixelMoxie your support is great as always! I was wondering if there was a way to make the slider scroll automatically every couple of seconds looping?

PixelMoxie

Yes, look for the option Slider Timeout. When a value is set, the slider will autostart. The value should be entered in milliseconds, so enter 2000 for two seconds, 4000 for four seconds, and so on. Cheers!

Ahhh so awesome! Thank you.

Hello PixelMoxie, can is possible to have a skills and services section maybe after the slider in a future update of this theme? Thanks

PixelMoxie

Hi scenico,

It’s unlikely those features will be added to Bloq, at least on the short term. The theme was never meant to be a one-page portfolio site, so it would go against its nature; plus, I don’t want to bloat the theme with more options. I think Services, Skills, etc., would be better managed with static pages.

Best regards,

Sergio

Thanks for the reply Sergio, I understand the development view off course you know better, maybe service can be managed with awesome fonts icons but how can I change the size? If you have any idea for the skills is welcome :)

PixelMoxie

Support for Font Awesome icons is included with Bloq, and covered briefly on the docs: http://goo.gl/tuEKOr

If you visit the examples page, you can see some cool uses and how to display larger icons as well: http://fontawesome.io/examples/

Of course, you could also use images for the services and host them with https://imgur.com or a similar service.

For the Skills, take a look at the jqBar plugin or this codepen, that might be useful.

I would display both services and skills on the same About page. You can add any additional CSS you need using the “Add Custom CSS” box. You won’t be able to add JavaScript code directly on the pages, but you can do so at the end of the theme markup.

I hope that helps :)

If you need something custom coded, you can email me using the form on my profile page and we can discuss details.

Cheers.
