Hi.. how do I get the ‘search function’ to display in the navigation bar?

You can enable it in Theme Options

I have input quite a number of portfolios with several images, maybe a dozen, and everything has worked fine. However starting today, I have been trying to create portfolios with more images – 25 or 30. The first ones always remembered the correct order to display the files (all my portfolios have a specific sequence). However these last two I have tried to set up with 25 or 30 files – nothing I do will make it preserve the order. I have tried:

1) Uploading them all at once by using the drag-n-dop media uploader (in both gallery view and image view) 2) Uploading them in 2 or 3 batches 3) Uploading each image one at a time, in order

In every case, the result is unpredictable, they do not show on the portfolio page in order.

If I look in the Media Library, they are alway in order. If I open the Add Media > Images or Add Media > Gallery window again, they will appear in order there.

But they are not in order when the “public” tried to view the portfolio “slider” (slidehow) on the page.

Just to clarify, I am not talking about the “Page” with the portfolio template applied. I am talking about the actual portfolios.

Any advise? I badly need this to work. I have this site set up perfectly but just these 2 portfolios to not work.

You can see an example of 1 portfolio here: http://www.hcs-gc.com/portfolio/govalle/ or you can see all of the portfolios here: http://www.hcs-gc.com/projects/

When I create new ones, they play all out of order. I need to be able to control the order.

Some research I have done suggested that maybe my theme (Centum) is not using the standard WP_query() function so it is not pulling all the images in WP’s normal order. I do not know if that it true or not, it’s just a suggestion.

Hi so, the file responsible for displaying slider with single portfolio item is single-portfolio.php, you’ll find there two lines:
                'orderby' => 'menu_order', // This ensures images are in the order set in the page media manager
                'order'=> 'ASC',
other parameters except ‘menu_order’ are listed here http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Order_.26_Orderby_Parameters

The problem might be that WordPress 3.5 has new Media Uploader, and I’m not sure how it handles now this default ‘menu_order’, I’ll look into this. For now, it won’t be convenient, but you could name your images with eg increasing numbers and change orderby to ‘title’

Thanks. The good news, is, all my file names are already numbered like 01-project-name.jpg however order by title seems to be using something other than the filename. Looking at at the WP documentation you linked to (thanks for the link), I tried “by date” instead and that seems to work now. “by ID” would be another option.

I must say that the wordpress documentation sure makes it sound like “by menu_order” is ‘the right way to do it’. I wonder if this is actually a WordPress bug that WP hasn’t found (or acknowledged) yet.

Thanks for the help, I think this will do for now.

I see now that yes, “Title” is not the same as filename. Anyway – “date” seems to be working ok.

I´m trying to put social icons in widgets and footers, but the icons won’t show. The only thing I see is the actual shortcode. It works on ordinary pages though. Any idea?

purethemes

Shortcodes by default are only available in post and pages content, it’s possible to change it but I’m not able to find it now, I’ll try when I’ll be back at the office

Default-user

Ok, thanks! I will use ordinary html then :)

Hi,

The shortcode list type=check_list works fine, except if I put the shortcode in an accordeon. Then I see no checklists, but the code appears on the page.

Can you help me with this issue? Thx.

purethemes

Hi, be sure you have latest version of Centum, it should work

I’m adding the the excerpts for the portfolio items, but they can only be a certain length, is that right? It’s cutting off at a certain amount of characters – can I remedy this?

purethemes

Hi, you mean the portfolio archive? You can change it in Theme Options, it can either be cutted after some number of letters, or display the text from Excerpt field

I’m also wondering where to change the heading for ‘Recent Projects’ I’d like to call it something else. thanks :)

You can do it in single-portfolio.php in line 174.

Hi, i think i read about that somewhere, but i cant find where… In the blog page, the images looks a bit “blurry” i suppose is related to the crop or resize of the image. But i try with various widths: 640px and 700px but didnt look great. Its not horrible, but not clear like in the portfolio or the home. In the portfolio, images are resized, but looks great. Only look blurred in the blog section. Any idea ?

thanks, your theme is quite easy to customize, im using it for the first time for a real work and looks nice with a little css work.

purethemes

Hi, yes, there’s a small bug with this, in functions.php there’s a line set_post_thumbnail_size(640, 300, true); //size of thumbs you need to change it to set_post_thumbnail_size(700, 300, true); //size of thumbs

Great theme – really simple to get going but there’s plenty of flexibility too. Is there a way I can add some space at the bottom of a list? I’m using the shortcode to give the list a tick but there’s no gap at the bottom of the list. This makes anything that’s underneath the list look as if it’s part of the list.

I tried adding a manual space between the list and the paragraph below but it looks too much.

Thanks

Hi, could you send me link to that page you have this issue?

Ignore my last two messages – I figured it out on my own. But I have another concern – if you have time to address it: I would like to have the same 4 items display in the Recent Portfolio section. I have used the filter option (which is quite useful – thank you), but it excludes the active item. I realize it’s silly to want a link to the page you’re already on, but in this instance it would look better than leaving it blank.

Thank you so much for your help, you truly are a super star. :superbashfulcute:

purethemes

Hi, in backend/helpers.php you have function recent_portfolios(), remove from it 'post__not_in' => array($exclude), line 792, and it will display also current item

Hi there! Loving this theme so far. Couple of questions. When I added a couple of social media buttons, I can’t seem to move them all the way to the right of the page. They show up closer to the middle. Any way to fix it?

Also, I love the 3-column setup on the main page of the live preview. However, I can’t figure out how to set it that way on any of my pages. The only thing that shows up on my main page is the “blog,” which I’d love to get rid of.

And lastly, how do I get the revolution slider to show up on every page, not just the main page?

Thanks, and if there’s somewhere that has all these answers that I missed, please let me know!

Hi

ad1. Please send me link to that page, I’ll check it ad2. Please follow this instruction http://www.docs.purethemes.net/centum/#getting_started_setting_up_the_static_homepage ad3. You can use Page Temaplate with Revolution slider, but you’d need to set it for each page.

Actually, I changed it to the boxed light format, and the media buttons showed up where I want them. It was when I used the boxed dark format that they didn’t work.

The Rev. Slider I’ve set up blinks for like 2 seconds before it slides … How can I avoid this?

thanks

  • Bought between 10 and 49 items

some people online say to make this change: ” style=”visibility: visible; position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 172.5px; opacity: 0;” class=”tp-leftarrow tparrows round large” the 172.5px; has to be 172px; for this to be fixed in chrome.”

But I can’t find it anywhere in the code.

Is this a possible jQuery issue? It seems to be … but I’m not sure.

purethemes

Hi, are you using the latest version of Centum? I’ve never seen this problem and I’m not sure what could be causing this. The style is generated via WordPress so it can’be change in source, this advice was probably to HTML version

MyDogShotJFK

ohhh … yeah. You’re right. Yes, I’m using the updated version of the theme. But the rev. slider version is 2.1.4 – they are currently on 2.2. How do I update if it’s a plugin that came with the theme, it’s not in the plug-ins page?

Revolution Slider doesn’t size right when viewed on a smartphone. Works fine on tablets. It’s too wide where the rest of theme is fine. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi- Sorry I am not good with this stuff so I’m going to be annoying. I added the images in the gallery onto the page, but they are all in one long vertical line down the page. Is there a way to make the gallery side by side with three or four images in a row?

Hi. Seems I’m the only one who has this problem: Upload Logo doesn’t work, nothing happens, if I upload a .png. As I can see in the screenshots, the picture should show in the window below, but it doesn’t. Tried it in Safari and Firefox on Mac as well as in IE and Chrome on Windows. Is there a bug with maybe some other plugins (Hotfix, JQuery Maga Menu, Portfolio Post Type and Wordpress Importer are activated)? Or do I need a special plugin to use this option in Theme Options – General?

Hello, i like your theme, but i need an answer before buying it: i need to have in the menu two different portfolio, each with its own button; is this possible? Thank you for the answer, Rocco

purethemes

Yes, it is possible, you can use Page Templates for portfolio pages and select in option which filters you want to display in page.

Yes I have! We will be soon releasing new theme but after that we will add WooCommerce to Centum

My generally thoughts about this theme::depressed: It took a long time to “install” this theme, because nearly everything is individually customable. This seems to be nice, but in fact it isn’t, its too much. A good graphic designer lets you choose between 3 or 4 options, here you can choose between 25 slidereffects for each single slide, just to name 1 example. But the essential things don’t work, like:
  • sidebar in portfolio seems to be not possible
  • logo-upload does’t work on my page (I had to hardcode it in the header)
  • portfolio-pictures have to be at least 960 px width (because they open full width on detailsite), which means that each picture has to be formatted, ortherwise you don’t see the content below…
  • search-field has no background, so its not customizable (e.g. if you like a lighter background for the field)
  • vertical distance of the social bookmarks and email/phone in the header ist not customizable
  • home: 3 colums for text + icons is possible, if you need 4 colums on your homepage, the last one is not in the same row
  • yes, the icons are a nice idea, and there are a lot of it…
  • sidebar is only possible on pages and articles, not on home or portfolio – why?
  • So, my opinion is: this theme is not simple (as said), it is a huge technical monster with lots of possibilities, where you just say wow (and need a lot of time to work with), but the author didn’t want to tie himself down to a good looking graphic solution. And this is normally what I expect from a premium template…
purethemes

Hi I’m sorry to hear that you are disappointed with Centum theme but things you’ve pointed out are clearly visible from Live Preview, so you could check it before buying. The only technical problem you have is that logo upload is not working, in that case please open ticket on my support forum purethemes.ticksy.com and I’ll try to help. And I believe it still simple comparing to other “top sellers” here ;) Anyway, please open a ticket on my support, I’ll try to help with some of your issues with theme.

Hi there, I just want to know if you have managed to fix the problem with the portfolios array not showing in Chrome. Once again, I have tried $(’#filters a.selected’).trigger(“click”) but although it does fix the column array issue, it does not allow for the slider in the main page to work. Maybe I am doing something wrong? Please help. Thank you.

purethemes
Hi, yes, please remove the changes you’ve made, and add just in Custom CSS box in Theme Options :
#portfolio-wrapper { width: 100%; }

Great theme! I haven’t had to customize it too much, but I do have a logo that is only 150×150 and I would like to center it over the navigation… is there an easy way to do it, or do I have to get into the header.php file?

Thanks!
