Hello, I am having the exact same issues as this person so I just copy and pasted their comment:
hey… ceres isn’t working for me. do you have any suggestions? I’ve followed the instructions below:
open TEMPLATE > TXT folder. Open an index.txt file in any basic text editor, like Notepad or one of those. Select all the code using keyboard shortcut: CTRL+A. Copy everything using CTRL+C and go back to Tumblr. In the empty space, paste all the code using CTRL+V. Click on Update preview button on the top of the window – you’ll see Ceres theme in the preview area on the right side.
I’ve refreshed… etc, still I’m getting nothing. Can you help me out?
Nevermind. I tried the same instructions on a different computer and it worked. Don’t know why it did but it did. Love this theme and can’t wait to start working on it now! Thank you!
Having the same problems as quite a few people! copied the txt file in but got a blank page! help?!
Use one of these editors and the problem disappear.
Hey again !
I am having a little problem understanding how to get a header on one of pages , so i can write a “services i provide” type thing I have read the help I would just like a more step by step explanation. Thank you again! i.e. http://themeforest.net/item/ceres-responsive-tumblr-portfolio-template/full_screen_preview/5240143
Do you mean the white text on the light gray background on the top of the page? If so, it displays automatically after you create a custom page. You just need to fill in all the data. Read more…
If it’s something else, please contact me and describe the problem.
I am having trouble embedding a band camp player into the main body of a photo post.. I tried every version of the band camp player and for some reason it looks like its there, but you can’t get it to play on a desktop ONLY works on a cell phone (Tried on an IPhone) please help.
Correction : NOTHING I embed into the body of a post will play, it looks like an image, can’t push the play button on an embedded band camp , sound cloud youtube OR vimeo player. again, I can only put text in the body of a post, nothing I embed will play.
Please contact me, add your website URL and I’ll check what’s going on.
I send you a message still haven’t heard back. I tried youtube, band camp, sound cloud and spotify players embedded into text, photo and video posts and none worked. I deleted all my slide images in case it was caused by a bad file, nothing, still not working it looks like the player is just an image. Ive switched between rich text and html/plaintext editors.. same thing.
I love this theme and I’m in the process of updating my page now. Would it be possible to turn the photoset into a slideshow similar to the home page? I think that would be a great update if possible.
Thank you for your suggestion! I’ll check if I’m able to make it.
Hey hey, me again
I need to make an overlay and paste a HTML / Script in the body text, on a page. Is this possible?
I don’t know. You can always try.
Please help. Why can you include no active links in the body of the text?
This applies to photo and video categories.
I don’t know what do you mean.
Please use my contact form and describe your issue with more details.
is there a size limit to the images that can bu placed on the slideshow?
Hope you can come up with a solution
The social buttons on the top right don’t work.
However if I go straight to the page it redirects to it does work. http://thestereostars.tumblr.com/
Thanks in advance
Hey got your mail.
What do you mean with is doesn’t work in a frame?
Everything is exactly the same as on the template, only the position is changed. The website redirects directly to the tumblr so you’‘re as far as I know not working in an Iframe.
Hope you can think with me on a solution Thanks in advance.
You had all the code in the frameset before and it couldn’t work because of the security reasons. It’s removed now and it’s working as it should.
It’s still not working. If you go to www.thestereostars.com its the same site redirectred, but the social buttons dont work.
I came to another abnormality that if the soundcloud plugin is loaded the buttons on top and the titles of sections don’t show up on first loading the site. Maybe it has to do with the loading order?
As I wrote before – these buttons don’t work inside a frame because of the security reasons, so the solution is to get rid of this frame or in the worst case scenario you could try to add target=”_blank” to every social link inside the unordered list called “network” (It’s around line 2042 in my code).
...if the soundcloud plugin is loaded the buttons on top and the titles of sections don’t show up on first loading the site.
I checked your site in every browser and everything is loading fine.
the target=”_blank” works thanks. Not ideal indeed with popup blockers, but I guess the best solution.
I am having trouble figuring out how to make the external profile icon links work for this template (aka Instagram Profile URL, YouTube Profile URL, etc), the tabs are in the customize theme area.
Do any of you know how to make this work? If I put the simple URL in, such as www.instagram.com/me it doesn’t work because it tries to redirect to www.myusername.tumblr.com/www.instagram.com/me
Any and all suggestions would be so appreciated! Thank you!
Please try with the “http://” at the beginning of your URL.
Thank you so much, that was the trick! I love the theme and thank you for your quick reply.
I have a few more little questions.
1. For some reason the slide show photos on the home page aren’t showing up. The photo downloads, but even after I refresh the homepage no photo shows up. I’ve tried different sizes of images but still nothing. I’m sure there’s something I’m not doing but can’t figure it out.
2. In the pages label, how do I create content for that page? I know I can create custom pages but how do I link it to the “get to know me” page on my site? www.djgodiva.tumblr.com
3. How do I embed a sound player such as a mix from soundcloud on the home page?
I think that’s it. Thanks again for creating a badass theme!
Actually sorry, one more question. Is it possible to put images behind icon titles such as the one’s here so that everything isn’t plain black? http://djgodiva.tumblr.com/tagged/KTUH%20Setlists#PORTFOLIO
Please contact me through my profile page, because it’s to much to answer it here.
I sent you an email but never heard back. Just sent again. Thanks!
I have never received your email, even the second one.
Maybe try again, but this time, exceptionally use “ask” form on my Ceres demo page.
Ok, will send again now. Thanks!
Got it now.
I am having issue with just editing this theme in general, I have no experience in coding. I purchased this theme thinking it will be merely simple click of browsing of images and writing texts to have my blog ready and running. i still have no clue on how to add a new page.
I just keep getting SSL connection error everytime I hit on a newly created portfolio gallery. please help me trouble shoot this error
Any form of instructional material on this would be greatly help.
Please help !
How do I change my favicon with this theme?
By changing your avatar.
If you want your avatar different from the favicon, then please contact me.
Is it possible to place an image behind the text on the header of each post?
It’s hard to say. I’ll check if I can and if so, I’ll add it in the next update.
Hi I just purchased this theme. I have no coding skills and thought i just try to install it. I opened the TXT folder in TextMate but I keep getting a blank page…
Can you please help.
Beautiful theme! Congrats on that work!
Is it possible to have a Society6 icon for the social networks section? I see a lot of URL but not this one. It’s quite popular for artists and graphic designers, surely would be appreciated!
Thank you for your time,
Also, can I change the transparency of thumbnails portfolio posts? It’s a little too dark.
Sure! Please contact me and I will customize it for you.
The photo slides only works on my Safari on my laptop but not on other browser in other computers. www.melanieng.tumblr.com
Please advice asap.
I checked in all popular browsers, and it works perfectly everywhere.
Can you try on a regular PC?
Yes, it was on a PC.
can u e-mail me and help me with this issue? i can show u what i am seeing on my side?
But there is nothing I can do. It works fine. It must be something wrong on your side only. Everyone else should see the slideshow. Just check this out on another PC.
After upgrading to 1.11 the slideshow doesn’t resize the images in the mobile version. The images look huge on my iphone and it’s making it difficult to navigate. By the way, I’m using Google Chrome on my iphone.
I feel ashamed and totally confused, because after a few hours of investigating this issue with my colleague, we still have no clue why these images don’t want to scale on Chrome in iPhone, so I’m sorry, but I can’t fix it.
I’m using your theme and it’s great.
There’s only one problem: when I post a link I can’t see that post into the post list.
Text, quotes and images are ok.
Can you please help me?
Thank you in advance,
