Hi — Is there a way to have images stacked on top of each other going down the portfolio page instead of gallery with the < > arrows? I want to accomplish this layout, but without having to make one huge image: http://codyradcliff.com/#item:lenovo-influencer-network. Also, I am wanting be be able to add videos on some pages, but cant unless its in the gallery mode. Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Cody

Hi Cody,

You can do it, but in the case when new item is opened in the new page (not withing the current page). To do this you have to disable initialization of Cycle plugin (modifying Javascript file custom.js).

Hi — quick question… could you point me in the right direction to edit the position of the nav text when its opened on mobile? I would like to align it on the left side instead of being pushed over to the right.

Hi, in the Admin Panel > Laborator find the Custom CSS area and paste this line of code:

.mobile-menu-container .main-nav {
float: none !important;
}

Hi and thanks for the great theme!

I was able to set it up really fast, but now I’ve come across a problem: Apparently the category filter an my front page is only filtering images that are already visible. I chose the “endless scroll” option with 4 columns and 3 rows, so there are 12 images on the front page. By clicking on the category above, I expected to see all images of this category.

But this is not the case: Only those images are shown that have been among the first 12 (and additionally the horizontal bar with “show more”). So inside some category pages, I don’t see any pics at all, but only the “show more” button, which then leads to loading the whole bunch of images. I think this is pretty confusing for the customer.

In the documentation I read:
“This type of pagination uses AJAX so once the user clicks “Load More” it will automatically continue to load new items (if have) till the end of them. Category filtering is applied also for new items that are appended by clicking “Load More” button.”

If I understand this correctly, the category filter should filter ALL items and not just the first (in my case) 12?

To see what I’m talking about, please visit mp-fotografie

I hope you can help me because my php skills are not quite good enough to be able to write it myself…

Thanks, Simone

Hi dear Simone

I have read your issue carefully and I’ve modified the code to make it work better. So please download this file:

http://cl.ly/XCqH

And replace to ~/wp-content/themes/calcium/assets/js/

The added functionality is that if user clicks on a category that has no loaded elements from particular category it will automatically click the load more button and load the other items.

This is not the best choice maybe but I think is smarter than letting user manually click Show/Load more button.

Hopefully you’ll like it.

Hello, i am having the same issue as cmrstar430. Im creating separate thumbnail images for each project and setting them as the featured image, but when published the quality is blurry and not the same as the original file. I am looking gin to the functions.php file but am not sure what needs to be adjusted. Do you have any other suggestions?

Default-user

very strange… i haven’t changed anything and it is no longer working anymore. I added more portfolio items but could not et them to be rotected, but other oems would be protected. Now none of them are protected. the protected items that were once hidden are now showing up again on the main page and not requiring a password. any ideas?

Laborator

Hi sarahjoyhood,

Have you checked if those lines of code I’ve sent you are present in those files?

Arlind

Default-user

yes, I’ve double checked as I haven’t changed any files since i first added them. line 18 was updated with the code provided you for me, and i still have the updated portfolio-single.php you posted in the other thread. all i did was add additional portfolio projects that were password protected, and when i refreshed the page they were all public but had “protected” in the titles. is it because i have more than one project that is password protected?

Hi, I tried selecting a different font and it says the change was updated but when I refresh the page it doesn’t reflect. What can I do?

Laborator

Hi MarisaRaskin

I have tried to change the font with these settings for instance:

http://cl.ly/Xf3z

And the result is:

http://cl.ly/Xf9a

So I guess it is working, please make sure you have set the correct name or url of font.

Hi — I am trying to password protect a portfolio piece, but it is not working. It says “Protected” on roll over but I am still able to click into the page without having to enter a password. Also, when trying to make a post private, it just gives me a 404 error.

Many thanks in advance

Laborator

Hi cmrstar430

Please download this file: http://cl.ly/XfKd

And upload/replace to calcium/tpls/ folder. It will show the password form before showing the content for password protected portfolio items.

If you want to hide password protected portfolio items from the list then download this file http://cl.ly/Xevc and replace to tpls/ folder as well.

Hi ! First, sorry for my english, i’m french and i’ll try to explain the little problem I have …

I want to hide the menu icon on all screen sizes, especially for mobile devices. I’d like menu links to be just under my logo … I found a comment (lukeallen1986 – 4 month ago), but you fixed the problem with an email so I can’t see how to do … can you help me ?

To be more clear, i’d like to have the same positioning there is on lukeallen1986’s website : http://www.roksalt.co/

Thanks a lot for the theme, I really love it !!

Laborator

Hi,
could you send me an e-mail too with the login details and I will take care of it.

Thank you for this lovely theme! I have one problem though: I have installed the theme on my server (for testing) but it loads incredibly slow (around 3 seconds). I have never had that problem before and my other websites are loading instantly. I haven’t even used images yet on the frontpage, so I am worried that if I do, it will take at least 6 seconds to load (which sound quick of course but is quite long for the web). Is this something that happens more often? Is there something I can do? Thanks in advance!

Laborator

The only problem that your homepage is loading slow may be the project images, but it is a bit confusing because you’re saying you’re not using any project image. Is the issue appearing on all the pages or just in the homepage?

Art

Hi First off, LOVING this them already. The main issue i am having now it uploading everything. i am kind of new this word press/theme adding and i still don’t really now if i did everything correctly. I am trying make it look like how i saw the love preview of calcium theme, but i am really stuck now.

Regards chukwuemeka

Laborator

Hi, glad to hear that :)

As for what are you asking, it is possible but i think that it will not look good at all, but if you want to try it, just go to Custom CSS and add this line of code:

.main-nav li a:hover {
font-weight: 600 !important;
}

Ylli

Default-user

Hi Thank you for you reply.

Yes i totally agree with you as it does not look really good, so i thank you for you advice.

!: Alternative i would like the navigation menu button to be a bolder/thick font (especially from the font family) instead of the hover effect if that possible?(just to see how it looks)

Is there a CSS code that i may use to add or where can i find on the Custome CSS or the Edit CSS section?

2:Another question i would like to ask is, you know when you hover over the home page profile/project image and it enlarges in the background is there a way you stop it or let it be a static image?

MY apologies for all this question, but thank you deeply for you patience.

Chukwuemeka

Laborator

Hi Chukwuemeka, yes you can try it, Just go to Custom CSS and add this line of code:

1.
.main-nav li a {
font-weight: bold !important;
}

2. I’m afraid that is not possible.

We are glad to help our users :)

And if you have a minute to help us, than please go to your Downloads tab on Themeforest and rate Calcium.

Hi may i know if i can change the homepage gallery to a static image? Thanks

Laborator

Hi jinhuilow,

I am not sure what do you mean exactly, but if it doesn’t exist in demo site then it is not available that feature. However you can customize the them by yourself.

Arlind

What i mean is. On the homepage, there are many pictures in grid. Can i only have one image on the homepage. THANKS

Laborator

Hi again

I understand it, but unfortunately this is not possible with Calcium theme, I am sorry.

Arlind

Hi there, last night we started filling your WP theme calcium. It starts to look really great already. Ik only have problems to set up the contact page. First I created a new page and selected ‘contact’ in the drop down menu. I understand there should appear tabs now to set up the form. But that doesn’t happen. Should they appear in de text field of the page itself or somewhere else? I installed both the required plugins. ‘Advanced Custom Fields – Location Field add-on’ and ‘Advanced Custom Fields: Flexible Content Field’. Hope you can help me with this.

JW

Laborator

Hi there,

the process of creating the Contact Page is easy, I know you may have some problems but I will explain from the beginning.

1. Make sure you have installed the required plugins.

2. Create the page and select the Contact template and click publish.

3. After the page is published the custom fields should appear.

Kind Regards,
Art

Default-user

Hi Art, your third point is the problem. That doesn’t happen. I selected the contact template, published and nothing happens. No custom field. Might there be a problem with the plug ins? Any advice?

Laborator

Can you send me your login details at info@laborator.co

I’ll check if I can fix it.

Kind Regards,

Great theme!

Unfortunately there’s an issue on mobile Safari (iPhone 6, iOS 8.1). Sidebar menu won’t open and Portfolio won’t load. Please advise, it works fine on mobile Chrome. URL: http://dagamalinska.com

Thank you, Mont

Hi Mont,

create a new page and then switch the tab to Text and change the values to your own.

Hi Art,

Thank you for all the help, however we’re still not on the same page ;). Let me explain it one more time, it’s seems straightforward… Is there a way to add image link to page within Calcium template so the click action would open vimeo video in jQuery viewer, similarly as Item Image alt text option? In general I’ve sorted it by using relative iframe dimensions, but I would prefer “cleaner” solution.

More issues to follow:

1. I’ve spent an hour searching for it with no luck. Please advise on how to change “Loading Portfolio Items” pagination string when portfolio is being loaded? I’ve managed to change it in every other part, but this one seems hidden somewhere deep.

2. Is not catching errors, but rather redirecting, while commenting (missing mandatory fields, duplicated comment, etc.) a known bug and will be delivered within next updates?

Kind Regards, Mont

Laborator

Hi Mont,

It seems like I misunderstood you, unfortunately I don’t know any easy method that would help you do this.

1. In the Admin Panel go to Appearance > Editor and on the right side click layout-portfolio-items.php, now search for the “Loading Portfolio Items” word and translate it there.

2. We haven’t had this issue, we will check for it and try to fix it in the next updates.

Kind Regards,
Art

Hello. Great theme, easily costomizeable! :)

Is it possible for you to give me a code, so all the photos on the frontpage will be rescaled, so it is the same width as the header? See this as an example;: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dreocbkfvqf3nh7/blog-resize-code.jpg?dl=0

And, can they have a border, so they arent completely sticking to eachother.

Thanks! :)

Laborator

Hi there,

Go to Appearance > Editor on the right side select layout-portfolio-items.php and replace all the code in the document with this one: http://pastebin.com/CRtgLvT3

Now to add a little space between the items go to the Laborator > Theme Styling and paste this into the Custom CSS:

.isotope .isotope-item {
padding: 2px;
}

Kind Regards,

Great theme! There’s a problem with my site… I create a new page here but on the frontpage it’s just a single world here without any link… when I click it , nothing happend.. you can see it herepianistao.com

Laborator

Hi there,

I just tested it and it works fine, please make sure you know how to work with it because it is really simple. To add the pages to the menu you need to go to Appearance > Menus and tick the menu items to add them.

Hi,

I am having trouble posting Vimeo video into a portfolio page. When I post a youtube video, it works perfect, but vimeo will not work. It just shows up as text.

http://codyradcliff.com/#item:invest-in-the-future

Any tricks or advice?

Thanks, Cody

Default-user

Sorry, I actually figured it out. It was a embedding setting I had wrong on Vimeo.

Laborator

Glad to hear that :)

A couple more questions…

1. has the navigation icon/button on mobile been fixed/updated yet? I still have the issue where sometimes the user has to tap on the icon multiple times or even refresh the page before it will work and open the menu.

2. Is there a way to make the entire portfolio item box background (where the hover color is) a link a link to the item. I have had people tell me it took them a while to know to click on the title to see the work.

3. Video portfolio pieces do not scale for mobile. Please see http://codyradcliff.com/#item:invest-in-the-future on a phone. You can see the video is just huge and cut off. Is there a fix for this issue?

MANY THANKS!!!

Laborator

Hi To edit style for the text under title to Custom CSS and add this code:

section.portfolio > ul li .portfolio-item h4, section.portfolio > ul li .portfolio-item p {
      display: block !important;
      padding-top: 12px !important !important;
}

as for the title here is the place that you have to change

section.portfolio > ul li .project-info h4 a {
      padding-top: 40px !important;
}

Hi, I’m having an issue with the blog post featured image not rendering, it appears that the cropped versions are not being written to the folder from labrator_image_resizer.php

I have tried playing with chmod and chown to resolve to no real solution. The original images upload fine by the way and this was working up until recently (We had to reinstall a vps)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Stephen

Hi there, can you please post with the account you bought the theme, this way we can verify that you’re a real customer as we do not offer support to users who doesn’t have “Purchased” badge.

Hi There,

I recently posted as StephenDittoMusic, I’ve retrieved my colleagues account (no longer works with us) to verify we purchased the theme.

Hi Stephen

Sorry about this, but we need to verify each account in order to give support, there are a lot users who did not purchased our themes and require support from us, and we think this is not fair.

About your issue, I think I have been in the same situation, because of PHP configuration in my site which was configured with DSO php handler, and has no write access in files.

Just to figure out, can you please chmod 0777 the wp-content/uploads/ directory (recursive) and see if it works.

I know 777 is not good, but just try to see if the problem is solved. If so, then I recommend you to let this settings because we have custom handler for images and requires read-write permissions in the wp-content/uploads.

Hopefully this will help you.
