Thanks, I’ve figured that out. I tried the documentation but couldn’t find a solution for this:

How to make an slide link directly without using a box/button.

Thanks.

The slide of only image doesn’t support link :S

Great Theme!

There is an issue on the portfolio if your author and category titles aren’t very long. Take a look at this screenshot: http://cl.ly/JYRL

I added a couple <br /> tags in single-portfolio.php on line 67 and that seemed to fix it. But you might want to add this to your fix list.

Let me know if you think of a better solution than my break tags. Thanks.

Code125

Hi jason,

There is a solution actually, to add those lines to custom css

.portfolio_cat_li {
min-width:300px;
}

I am trying to make it general but it is some how hard to handle.

Dear Mostafa, This is very nice theme that I bought recently for my Arabic blog.

I have installed it on wordpress ver. 3.4.2 but i’m facing many issues. e.g. some of the widgets, like latest post, does not show the title in arabic. Also the background of container for the posts is always same color of the main page color. looks ugly. how can you help?

thanks.

Hi there,

Loving your theme and working out how to get it working as I need.

Can you let me know how I get the bottom of the page to look like your demo page.

It’s the area which has contact info, then blog, then flickr then contact form all in a dark background?

That would be great, thanks.

Thanks Mostafa,

I didn’t notice the footer widgets section!

Two quick things (hopefully)

Any text I have on pages or blog posts appears on the site without any spacing. i.e. it doesn’t show returns so all paragraphs run in to each other.

Also, I’ve added a twitter feed in to the footer which seems to automatically show 3 tweets, can I reduce that to 2?

Thanks in advance my friend.

Kevin

Code125

Hello Kevin :)

About the text make sure that they are included in a p html tag

About the twitter slider, it’s default to 3 if you want it 2 you will have to hardcode the theme.

Default-user

Thanks for the quick response Mostafa,

I seems I need to go to the start of every line of text in HTML mode and add a

– should that be correct? it seems a fairly labour intensive way to add text to my pages and posts etc.?

I’m happy to change the hardcode of the theme to change from 3 tweets to 2. Can you tell me which file I edit that in please? i.e. index.php or function.php etc.

Finally, When I add a logo to the site which is a little larger than your demo one, it moves the menu items to the right slightly. This results in drop down menus appearing slightly higher than they should (it kinda takes the good look away from the theme).

Is there somewhere I can change this so I can have a slightly larger logo but still retain the formatting of where the drop down menu’s appear?

Kevin

p.s. Just rated your theme – I really like it and I’ve used many.

Hey Mostafa,

first one: Very nice Theme! But I have a little Problem!

On the Frontpage-Site I add the shortcode [slider] – Now, I add Content in the Slides-Section but I don´t see any slides on the Frontpage!?

Another Question… Video-Slide… VIDEO -ID = Link??

thx!

EDIT :/// Okay, now I am seeing a Slider on the Frontpage. But I can´t see the Youtube Video!

Code125

Hello bzielke,

The slide shortcode should have a slide from the custom post, please create it first.

About the video ID, no it’s not the video ID if this is the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_G8SdXktHg

then the ID will be G_G8SdXktHg

That’s it :)

Please rate the theme if you like it :)

Okay.. I got it! thx!! :)

But there is another problem… Take a look: http://tinypic.com/r/wtxfgx/6

I tried it with the Layout Builder and without it – Every time it looks like this! And the Slider isn´t centered.. so it looks not so good. When I try to use the shortcode [flexslider], then there isn´t any slider.. But I see the Code on the Page!!!

Code125

Dear bzielke,

Please include [divider_space] between your blocks and it should get fixed

Really cool.. thats it! THX ! :)

Now, there is one more Question (and I hope it s the last one lol): So, you see Post-Pictures in the Article, you see it at the Sites with the Shortcode “posts” and “posts2”, and of course with the Shortcode “category-slug”.

So Which is the best size for Images, to fit in all these different “box-sizes”?? You see.. When I upload Images with the size “680×300” it fits perfectly in the Post and with the “posts” Shortcut, but it looks not so well with “category slug”.

Code125

Look the best image width for all purpose in the website 960×450

I will appreciate it if you rated my theme :)

hi. i have arabic site i want to enable the arabic translation i changed the wp-config to define (‘WPLANG’, ‘ar’); but it’s not working the contact us fields and button still in english and the breadcrumb also any idea. great work

Code125

Dear Ahmed,

You should define the language as follow

define (‘WPLANG’, ‘ar_AR’);

try it and tell me

Default-user

Thank you for your fast response this solved the problem, but I added the contact us form in the footer the send button is translated to Arabic but the name, email and message no

Code125

in your theme files library/translation/ar_AR.po take this file and open it with a program called PoEdit and edit all the text you need to edit the way you want.

I will appreciate it if you rated the theme :)

do you have any kind of documentation that shows what each shortcode does rather than just trying to figure it out from the shortcode generator?

Code125

Dear dadofgage,

You can see the shortcodes menu in the demo, it contains all the shortcodes available

Thanks :)

Hi,

I am very interested in your theme.

How easy is it to amend the page elements, such as the CSS that goes with the “responsive design / editable theme / customer support” elements on the homepage in the demo, and things like the icons such as the telephone and envelope in the “contact” footer widget?

Thanks.

Code125

Dear richardclarke79,

Thank you for your interest, The design comes with sliced PSD for the icons used in the theme, you can change anything in the PSD “and maintain the elements position” and replace the file in the theme and you will have your customized icons.

If you have any question I will glad to assist you

Thanks for the quick response to my previous question Mostafa,

At present it seems I need to go to the start of every line of text in HTML mode and add a

– should that be correct? it seems a fairly labour intensive way to add text to my pages and posts etc.?

Also if I then switch to visual mode to add a photo it then strips out all the

tags

I’m happy to change the hardcode of the theme to change from 3 tweets to 2. Can you tell me which file I edit that in please? i.e. index.php or function.php etc.

Finally, When I add a logo to the site which is a little larger than your demo one, it moves the menu items to the right slightly. This results in drop down menus appearing slightly higher than they should (it kinda takes the good look away from the theme).

Code125

About the tags it’s a related issue to the wordpress it self

about the logo, please refer to line 715 in base.css in library/css and increase the padding-top till it fits your logo.

About the twitter: line2510 in shortcodes.php in library/includes/shortcodes/libs/

Sorry again about the delay in the replying

Default-user

Thanks Mostafa,

The logo info worked well.

I’m not sure what you mean re. tags is a related issue to wordpress itself.

I don’t have this issue in any other theme and I’ve used a lot.

I can’t even seem to get the theme to display a simple bulleted lists properly.

If I’m in the visual editor and I select a word or words and select a heading tag from the drop down menu it displays that all ok – simply the paragraph style which doesn’t seem to put a return where it should.

I would be grateful if you would look at this again as it doesn’t seem right.

Thanks.

Dear creator,

I am using your theme in combination with WooCommerce. When I use your theme I get the following error:

Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function ‘woocommerce_reset_loop’ not found or invalid function name in /home/webstijl/domains/webstijlcms.nl/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 484

Can you please fix this for me?

Code125

Hey,

I dont have a function called call_user_func_array() in the theme

i think it is a issue related to the plugin

I contacted Bluehost and their support wouldn’t help me because of the following error “Riley: I see this: [28-Sep-2012 15:27:15] PHP Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home1/leakingp/public_html/kevsnaps/wp-content/themes/carmen/footer.php on line 14”

This is very frustrating

Sorry for late reply.

You should fill the footer, please refer to the documentation about filling the footer

I changed the homepage back to the portfolio. 1. Clicking on page 2 (at the bottom) doesn’t work 2. I changed breadcrumbs to “no” for my front page but the title of the page “Photographer” still displays

I did try to follow the documentation as best I could but I must have missed why it’s not working – I can give you wordpress login details if you need www.kevsnaps.com

Please send me the logins details.

Hello,

When I purchased this theme, I thought it was compatible with IE8 . Now when I am using it, it seems to have problems in IE8 . It doesnt show the menu anymore or it shows me a dropdown list.

Can you please fix this?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Code125

Dear Biggienor,

Please update to Carmen 1.3, IE 8 issues are fixed :)
