Great Theme! I’ve purchased.

Two questions:

1. I’ve posted a few portfolio items, but I’m wanting to re-order them… can I do this? Or do I have to post them in the order I want them to appear?

2. I created a page called “Blog” ...how do i get posts to appear there? Or am I doing this wrong?

2winFactor

Hi Anonymous,

I’m glad you like it! I’d be glad to answer your questions.

1. The portfolio items are ordered by their post date. To change the order, simply change the date of the portfolio item post.

2. You’ll need to navigate to Settings > Reading and select the “Blog” page for your posts page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi,

I’m having an issue with the portfolio items. When I add an image, script appears on the homepage:

Warning: Attempt to assign property of non-object in /home/robpar40/robinisalive.com/wp-content/themes/bookcase/functions.php on line 312

I see that other folks are having the same issue?

Thanks!

I changed the photos to be wider than 500px, but I’m still running into the same problem. I checked my wp-config file and it was already set to false. Not sure what to do!

Hi Robin,

I’m not sure what’s going on. Can you set up an admin account for me so I can take a look? You can just shoot the info over to my email via the contact form on my profile page.

Thanks, Andre

Hi Robin-

All fixed. For some reason, the image slider function has a hard time with exceptionally large images. I’m not sure why, but it seems to choke and throw errors when this happens. I just re-sized the images in Wordpress down to 800px wide and that fixed it. The site should run faster too now that the image size is reduced also.

Let me know if you run into any other issues.

Hi,

Awesome theme! Having a lot of fun playing around with it. I’ll stay on the look out for any new themes you make.

Thanks!

Hello! So nice :)

Any social media integration?

I kinda like the way it;s happening here: http://themeforest.net/item/zen-html-5-template/637758?WT.ac=new_item&WT.seg_1=new_item&WT.z_author=Ansimuz

would you be able to implement that for me when i purchase? :)

2winFactor

Hi Suska,

I’m not sure what you’re referring to, but there is a twitter widget included with the theme. Additionally, you can place any social media icons you’d like in widget areas of the theme through a text widget. A great place for social media icons could be underneath the navigation, for instance. Which are you referring to?

Andre

Been looking for this for quite some time.

I just have one query/request. Could you integrate (history/back-button) plugin into the homepage (masonry) plugin?

2winFactor

Hi Laluuk,

Perhaps? There isn’t one right now, but maybe in a future update. I’ll keep that in mind.

Hello Andre,

Found the file, i do not know javascript, perhaps an example file?

Kind regards, Matthijs

Hi Formad, It is possible, although you may need to hard-code the post id into a function. If you know javascript it shouldn’t be too difficult. You’ll just need to run the “changer” function after the masonry function is initialized, and include the proper variables. Refer to this custom function in custom.js.php: changer(letter, postid, height) Andre

2winFactor

Hi Formad,

You could try placing something here in the body of the header file? Again I have not tested this. You’ll need to consult a javascript person on this.

<body onload=" 
javascript:changer('a1','#itemdiva1', '<?php echo $theheight; ?>'); return false;">
<!--regular content -->
</body>

Hello Andre,

How do I make the website pure white? I dont want the background to be off white and grey.. pls help!

2winFactor

Hi Suzanka-

Sure, it’s super easy. Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Customize. Enter the following into the custom css box:

body {
background:#ffffff;
}

Cheers, Andre

this really is great. love it… my only issue w/ it is that it looks like you designed it on a PC. the fonts show up weird on a Mac, they look more pixelated not as clean… i would totally change the fonts, but i’m sure it looks awesome on your computer..

2winFactor

Thanks for letting me know. I’ll have to look at this on a mac and change the fonts in the demo.

Andre

Is it possible to change the background to an image?

2winFactor

Hi Userguy-

Yes, absolutely. You can upload your own image from the options panel to have your own custom background.

Cheers, Andre

Hey 2winFactor,

Thought I’d leave you a good comment for a great theme! Me and my partner love it! It’s simple, intuitive, and elegant. So thumbs up, look forward to your other themes that follow the similar or better quality!

Cheers!

ps: I’m having a little problem with the Site Tagline. I filled it with It’s For… but it shows up at the homepage as It/’s For… Can you get a fix for this?

2winFactor
Try using the html for the quote:
&lsquo;

That should fix it!

Andre

Also, do you know any wp plugin that can hide the portfolio word in the url? e.g. http://www.___.com/portfolio/test-page/ to http://www.___.com/test-page/ ?

Hate to trouble you so it’d be great if you can point me at the right direction, and I will figure this out on my own ;)

Much thanks!

2winFactor
You can change the name of the custom post type in functions.php to change the name of the “portfolio”. Otherwise you may need to access your .htaccess file and add a few things. Here’s a quick tutorial: http://www.wprecipes.com/how-to-remove-category-from-your-wordpress-url

Andre

2winFactor,

Huge thank you once more mate ;) Really appreciate your help!

triple-thumbs up!

You’re very welcome Carson :)

Hi,

Is it possible to disable custom fonts and just choose Arial or any other standard one?

Sergey

2winFactor

Hi Sergey,

Yes, you can set fonts with custom css in the custom css box:

/* Heading Font */
h1, h2, h1 a, h2 a, .blogpost h2 a {
font-family: Arial, georgia, serif; 
}

/* Subheading Font */
h3, .ag_projects_widget h3, h4, h3 a, h4 a, .aj_projects_widget h3 a, .footer .note h4, .footer h4.subheadline {
font-family: Arial, georgia, serif; 
}

/* Tiny Details Font */
h5, h5 a, , .widget h3, .widget h2, .widget h4  {
font-family: Arial, georgia, serif; 
}

/* Paragraph and Nav Font */
p, ul, ol, .button, .ui-tabs-vertical .ui-tabs-nav li a span.text,
.footer p, .footer ul, .footer ol, .footer.button, .credits p,
.credits ul, .credits ol, .credits.button, .footer textarea, .footer input, .testimonial p, 
.contactsubmit label, .contactsubmit input[type=text], .contactsubmit textarea {
font-family: Arial, georgia, serif; 
}

Feel free to also comment out the google fonts code in the header if you won’t be using them. Let me know if you have any issues or questions setting fonts.

Andre, thanks for fast reply. I’ve commented Google code, now everything works perfect (problem was that some Google servers are blocked by government here, so custom fonts were appearing after 2 minutes delay). Now another issue – I cannot see “Insert into post” button when uploading images to portfolio. I see it on my localhost, but not online. Not a big problem of course, but if you have any ideas I would appreciate.

2winFactor

Hi Sergey-

I’m not sure why that’s happening. Is the button appearing on already uploaded items?

Andre

Just to update you 2winFactor, the rewrite rules apparently no longer works with Wordpress.org 2.9.1 onwards :(

I changed the “portfolio” with the word of my choice but I somehow messed it up. Can you give a little pointer?

-Actually I’m trying to make the blog interface like the Homepage with the portfolio images instead of the classic blog layout. Is there any other way to work around it?

-Regards, Carson

2winFactor

You may need to change the custom fields and homepage loop from portfolio to your new name, also. Custom fields are located in customfields.php in the functions folder and the portfolio post type loop is in portfolio-single.php(you’ll need to change this name too), template-homepage.php, and taxonomy-skills.php(you’ll need to change this also). There are also loops in the projects widget for portfolio items too. You basically have to change it everywhere, I believe.

However, you might just need to change the “singlular_name” in functions.php where the post type is set up. I haven’t tested either way, but I would start with the later before the former.

Hello Andre,

I tried a lots of things, are there other way to do this, i want to use this template for my own company, so it it important for my te have one item from the portfolio expanded, i found the masonry script but no support forum there, i hope you haven other suggestions to solve this.

Thanks for all the help until now.

2winFactor

Replace your custom.js.php file with this:

http://pastie.org/pastes/2713736/text

Be sure to back your old file up first. You’ll also need to go into the new file and edit line 135 manually for now, also.

Hello Andre, that worked, i’m very great full, thank for the great support, the smallest thing i can do is rate you 8 stars.

Thanks again, Matthis

Hi, I love the minimalistic design of Your theme.

Before I purchase it, could You tell me if I could have 3 types of portfolios with 3-5 categories inside? In demo “services” have 3 categories. I need to have 3 “services” with 3-5 categories each, is it possible?

2winFactor

Hi Labad,

Yes, the portfolio categories work just like regular post categories. Each parent category can have as many child categories as you like and each child can have children, etc. The “services” dropdown was just made using the custom menu maker that comes with wordpress, so you can arrange them however you like.

Ye man Awesome theme and really well coded.

I am having trouble adding images to the blog.Is there way to add images and make it into a gallery.

One more question.I am having trouble with a contact page.I am not getting emails every time I send.

Sorry an other question.Is there way to show video icon in just one image than in the whole gallery.I mean if you click on the blue image

2winFactor

Hi Skaikart,

Currently, blogs do not support featured slideshow galleries. Perhaps in a future update.

As far as the contact page, you said your are getting emails some of the time? It could be a hosting/spam issue. I’d need to know more to be sure.

The video icon can’t be shown on specific slideshow images at the moment. That would take some modifications to the template files and admin that isn’t available yet.

Andre

LOVE THE THEME !!!! I have been looking for 3 months and finally found what I needed with your theme.

I am having two issues.

• When I make a page Full Width, I get a 404 page error.

• Do you recommend any testimonial widgets for the side bar? I downloaded a few but they corrupted or messed up the portfolio page actions. I didn’t want to use jus ta text widget. I wanted to use one that would be like a slide show of testimonials.

Thanks and I am 100% happy with my purchase already!

2winFactor

Hi Digital7,

I’m so glad you’re happy. Be sure to download and install the latest version of the theme (version 1.2). That update fixes the 404 bug in full width pages.

Cheers, Andre
