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.

PixelMoxie

I replied to your email. Let me know if it helps!

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.

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/

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!

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

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.

Hello, I am having trouble installing this layout on tumblr. When I updated the view to see how this theme would look, nothing happened. Also when I downloaded the coding for this template it wasn’t html I believe It looked like this {block:Hidden} {/block:Hidden} {block:IfEnableCodeSyntaxHighlighting}{/block:IfEnableCodeSyntaxHighlighting} {block:IfEnableFontAwesome}{/block:IfEnableFontAwesome} {block:IndexPage} {block:IfEnableHomepageSlider} {/block:IfEnableHomepageSlider} {block:IfShowHomepageHero} {block:IfHomepageHeroText} {/block:IfHomepageHeroText} {/block:IfShowHomepageHero} {block:IfShowCallToAction} {block:IfCallToActionText} {/block:IfCallToActionText} {/block:IfShowCallToAction} {/block:IndexPage} {block:SearchPage}

PixelMoxie

Hi tigerlily,

Thanks for your purchase :)

I’m glad to hear you were able to install the theme successfully. I guess you mean the collapsible widget area at the top? If you use the Twitter or any of the image feed widgets (Instagram, etc.) they will show up there. If you aren’t using any of the widgets you can disable Enable Widget Area and the toggle at the top won’t be visible.

Please let me know if that helps.

Cheers!

Hello,

I love your theme, however, I’m having an issue with photosets. I have the latest version installed, 1.3.6, and it won’t open the photoset post. I can open other posts and click through the posts to get to it, but it cuts off the photoset and will endlessly think but never actually load the permalink page of the photoset. I have tried both stacked photosets and grid. I have tried changing the order of the images. I have made sure image zoom is off, even though I saw that was a previous problem you have since fixed. Also, clicking the ajax controls on the photoset page, when I can rig it to show, does nothing. I’m extremely perplexed, as I didn’t do anything to the code. If you could help me, I would be most grateful.

If you’d like to look at it, http://polychrome-ink.tumblr.com/

PixelMoxie

There’s a little function that assigns the first image from the set to the Pinterest button. If the share widget is enabled, the script expects the Pinterest button to be there—but is not, and that causes the error.

I’ve patched the script to avoid this now. If you go to line 1764 on the theme source, you should find the following tag (it may not be on that line if you changed some stuff, do a search for it):

<script src="http://static.tumblr.com/ganu3wf/LWYn7dntg/main.min.js"></script>

Please replace that line with:

<script src="http://static.tumblr.com/ganu3wf/iapn9tafa/main.min.js"></script>

Let me know if it works!

Hi! Got the theme few days ago and I love it! But I have 2 quick questions:

How can I erase links underline? Also I want to erase the long line from “about” page, top of the disqus comment section, is it possible?

Thanks again! :)

PixelMoxie

Hi there,

Thanks for the purchase!

Go to the “Advanced options” section on the customizer, and on the “Add Custom CSS” box, paste the following:

.post-detail .description a,
#portfolio-grid .reading-pane a {
    border: none !important;
}

.post-detail .divisor {
    display: none;
}

The first block should get rid of the underline on links on the homepage and post pages, and the second one will hide the divisor above the Disqus comments.

Let me know if that helps!

Default-user

The second block worked but the first one didn’t, underline on links is still here. But they’re not exactly underline, little dots along under the links. :)

PixelMoxie

Where are the links you want to target? On the homepage grid posts? On permalink pages? Somewhere else? Please include a link to your site so I can take a look. If you don’t want to post it here, you can email me using the form on my profile page. Thanks!

Hey, something just came up I noticed on my site: links to “tagged” posts has quit working—it just loads a blank page even though all the source code is still there on the page when you view source. It won’t work in Safari, Chrome, nor my mobile Safari.

Is this a Tumblr issue or something with my coding? It’s been working great for months, but now it won’t work. I have a workaround by just linking to /filter-[tag]/, but it’s not as efficient loading as just linking to /tagged/[tag]. Any insight?

http://sethearnest.net/. And you can try http://sethearnest.net/tagged/mix to see what I mean. It just loads a blank page now (even my header is gone). It used to lay out all my posts I have tagged “mix” into the portfolio grid. It was lovely.

I’ve now changed all my links across the top bar to the workaround, but it has to load the page twice, which isn’t great. Thanks for any insight!

PixelMoxie

Hi,

The issue you’re having is really strange; it took me a while to figure out what it was. If you go to www.sethearnest.net/tagged/musician everything seems fine, so the issue seems to exist only with the “mix” tag.

For some reason the embed code for the video on this particular post outputs invalid HTML, breaking the page:

http://sethearnest.net/post/81752241748/beauty-pop-simply-sexy-original

Not sure why, because Tumblr outputs that code automatically, but the iframe for that video is missing its closing tag. The browser can’t read anything past it and the page isn’t rendered.

Try editing that particular post, removing the video and embedding it again using the full URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4MVQaNU_4Q

Let me know if that helps!

How does the whole update system work? I got an email saying theres an update, I am planning on downloading it. But does this mean I have to re-install my theme and fill out all the content and what no all over again? Please explain how it works because I have a really great site set up and would hate to re-do it all over again just to have an update. Site is > hatimruinedmyfilm.com.

PixelMoxie

Hello there, thanks for your purchase :)

To update the theme, simply download the new files and repeat the installation steps but copying the contents of the updated file instead. The options you set on the customizer (colors, toggles, etc.) should be preserved, and of course your actual posts are not affected.

In regards to the issues you’re having, I just realized Tumblr changed the way it renders Vimeo videos recently. Now it includes credits with links underneath the video, and with this particular theme, this is causing links to be nested inside links. This makes the markup invalid, and that’s why some links are no longer working.

Fixing this should not prove too hard so I’ll try to submit a fix as soon as possible, hopefully tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads up!

So I just copy paste the new downloaded text file and delete the old one? No problems should occur?

And as for the vimeo and videos, how comes some vimeo videos load and some don’t? I have no done anything to the settings. This is really weird and annoying, tumblr shouldn’t make changes without notifying us eh?

Please resolve it asap, thank you so much for your help Sergio.

PixelMoxie

Yes, updating is simple. “Customize” > “Edit HTML”, copy the updated code, paste it over the old one replacing it entirely. Your settings should be preserved, never had a problem myself. Worst case scenario, you can revert to an old version. I never had to do that though.

http://staff.tumblr.com/post/380346543/theme-recovery

Some Vimeo videos output just the iframe containing the player, others have the credits and links below the player, not sure why. It may be a recent thing to help video creators getting attribution for their work.

Tumblr changes stuff like this under the hood all the time. To be honest, most themes shouldn’t break because of this, but Bloq uses some unconventional tricks, to grab the cover image for the video, for example.

Anyway, I fixed it already, luckily it was an easy one :)

I’ll submit the update for review shortly. Send me an email using the form on my profile page if you want me to email you the files directly.

Cheers,

Hello, I’m in love with this theme, but few days ago appeared a serious problem. Basically the homepage is a blank white page, but the sub-pages appeared; e.g. shotfolder.com is blank but with the subpage shotfolder.com/about everything is ok.

What could it be?

PixelMoxie

I just tried to replicate that post of yours on a test site and indeed, the script that turns blockquotes into tweets is breaking the site, so that must be it.

You can still use the script, just remove all instances from individual posts, and then edit the theme HTML and add:

<script charset="utf-8" src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

at the very end, before the closing </body> tag.

Hope that helps!

Hey Sergio! I’m messing with HTML5 background videos, but I am unable to get the video to stay put. It scrolls with the content and exposes the regular color background underneath. Is there anyway to: (1) get the video to where the color background is and remove the scrolling layer above, or (2) make the scrolling layer stick? Or do you have another suggestion?

Thanks!

-Anthony

PixelMoxie

Hi Anthony,

First of all, never include HTML markup inside the <head> element. Move the code for the background video to the beginning of the <body> element, rigth before the Spinner code.

I think you only need to use position ‘fixed’ instead of ‘absolute’ for your ’#video_background’ rule on the CSS.

Let me know if that helps!
