I am loving the design!! I have a question about pages.

I am embedding a vimeo link and for some reason it is not coming up centered. Is there something I am doing wrong? Is there a workaround for the problem? Here is my page

http://justinmelland.tumblr.com/TKT

Thanks!!

Default-user

Also, is there any way to add a graphic behind the title of of the page?

Default-user

I’m noticing the problem is only happening on a desktop version, it looks terrific on the smart phone…

Default-user

now that i changed the color of the page, i no longer want to add a graphic to the page!! Sorry about that!

adraft
To center the video, head to Add custom CSS area and add:
.caption iframe {display:block; margin:0 auto;}
Default-user

Thanks so much! For some reason my “Contact” Page is coming up with a “not found” link… Did I break it somehow?

adraft

Did you mark Let people ask questions in the settings of your blog?

Default-user

Found it! Thanks so much! Right now when I post a link to a music file on bandcamp or soundcloud, it displays the actual post wonderfully, but when I’m looking through the portfolio posts, there is no label so know one knows what they are clicking on… Is it possible to add the title of the song in the little preview icon?

Default-user

this is what I’m talking about, the link has no description the way it does when it’s a “text” post…

adraft

I’ll put it in my next update.

Default-user

Thanks so much!! Is there a little snippit of code that would center images on pages as well? The are a little off, even when telling the html to center it…Here is an example http://justinmelland.tumblr.com/life2

Thanks again!!

adraft

This option is available already. Go to Appearance options and mark Center Images In Description.

Default-user

Thanks! Sorry about that! For some reason this image wont center…I’m not sure what I’ve done wrong, as the others are working fine http://justinmelland.tumblr.com/life2

This image is inside a div tag:
<div>
    <img />
</div>
Replace this tag with the paragraph:
<p>
    <img />
</p>
Default-user

Thank you so much!! You have been so helpful! I’m really loving how the design works with my music portfolio!

adraft

You’re welcome! :grin:

One last thing, and the site is perfect! On the iPhone, if you have a movie imbedded on a custom page, it doesn’t resize the movie, but in a regular post, the template resizes it perfectly. Is there a little fix that will make the videos fit on the smart phones?

Default-user
http://justinmelland.tumblr.com/life2 check this out on a smart phone and you’ll see what i mean
adraft
Yes, in line 2246 replace:
$(".main_photo").fitVids();
with:
$(".main_photo, .caption").fitVids();
Default-user

For some reason, I seem to be loading the update wrong. Are we supposed to be just opening the file in a text editor as plain text, and then replaced the entire batch of older code in the html editor? I did this and my entire web site disappeared….

adraft

Yes, just replace the code.

Default-user

Thanks. I must have done it wrong, because I got the code to work, but all my customizations and photos have been lost… what did I do wrong??

Default-user

Hey There, I got everything back up and running, is there a way that we can add a photo and text to the preview of a post?

http://justinmelland.tumblr.com/post/63479485149

This one just shows that if you click it, something will play, but if we could just have the image and a little piece of text, it would make things so much more clear… Is that something we can do?

Default-user

I meant to show you this link of the preview. The post I’m talking about is the one on the left…

http://justinmelland.tumblr.com/tagged/Father#Music
adraft

Tumblr from the back-end is a real mess and it treats audio posts as a video posts for unknown reason and the “play” icon is displayed in the video posts, which doesn’t have a cover image. So, that’s why you see it now.
If you want to have an image as a thumbnail and also a title on it, like on my preview, then I suggest you to use Photo post type instead of Audio and embed the SoundCloud music in the description area.
For more details of how to add titles, please head to the documentation file.

Hi,

I would like to remove the arrow keys (<>) from the main page.. just would like it cleaner and let the slide show run without any input from the viewer.. Can you tell me where I can remove the arrows?

Thanks!

adraft

In Ceres 1.7 remove two lines of code: 1589 with id arrow_left and 1590 with id arrow_right.

Hello, quick question. I notice that when I post a “video” the thumbnails on the main page seem to be a bit pixelated. Is there a way to up the resolution of the video thumbnail within the HTML code? Thanks in advance.

adraft

As far as I know it’s impossible.

Hello.

Not too sure if this is doable, but Is there anyway to make the external links open in a new window rather than navigating away from the page?

Thank you.

adraft
It’s possible but it’s also a bad practice and you shouldn’t do this. If you still want it, you must manually add to every link:
target="_blank"

Thank you for creating this theme! Do I need to do anything to make theme responsive? when I open my site on mobile, it doesn’t show my slide show images.

Thank you, HelloChen.ca

Hi, loving the Theme. How do I get a picture in the middle? The text is in the middle, but when I add a picture, it’s more to the left. How can I make it look good with the text?

adraft

Turn on Center Images In Description option.

I must be missing something obvious. How do I edit items form the project tab and how can I add a slideshow to them as well?

adraft
I don’t know what do you mean by items form.

How can I add a slideshow?
Make sure that you have Show Slideshow option on and also upload at least 1 slider image.
Default-user

When I click “customize” on Tumblr it gives me options to add pages and name my portfolios. However, there is no box/option to actually add content to my portfolio pages from the dropdown menu.

adraft

To add content to your portfolio use Text, Photo, Photoset or Video post types from the Tumblr Dashboard.

When I turn off the about section the social media links are also gone, is there maybe a way that I can use them with out the about section?

Thanks

adraft

Yes, uncheck the Show Avatar In About Section option and also leave your blog description blank.

Default-user

Thank you! It’s working :-), Got another question.. Do you know how I can edit the name of the category tags? Now it’s when you go to a category in my portfolio you see : Portfolio Category – Keukens, but I need to have it also in dutch so it’s looks better! Do you maby know how I can do it?

Thanks!

adraft

Yes, in the Ceres 1.8 go to line 2029 and there will be an h1 tag. Inside this tag replace the word Category with your own.

Default-user

Thanks!

And yes, me again haha. Is there maybe a way to get the white stroke between the text and the title to 0? So its fit perfect.

This is how it looks now : http://i.imgur.com/kd7CzXK.png And this is what I want : http://i.imgur.com/ViBbzra.jpg

Thanks!

adraft
It’s possible but it’s also not so easy, because if you’ll do this, then it’ll destroy the layout in other places. However, you can safely reduce that space by 70px. All you need to do is to insert this code into the ADD CUSTOM CSS box:

.text .caption {margin-top:0;}

When is it fully supported on iPad?

The site is done and works perfect on my Macbook and iPhone, but when i’m opening it on the iPad of a friend of me, I need to do a very strange thing to get an portfolio object open..

Is there maybe a way how I can do it with HTML?

adraft

I have an idea how to fix it, but I can’t test it, so could you contact me through my profile page and I’ll send you the code and then you’ll let me know if it’s fine?

Hi there, I love the theme so far now that I have it up and running. Is there a way to make it so when people hover over the gallery links (on the portfolio page or in categories) it will display the Gallery title? Thanks!

adraft

I don’t know which gallery links do you mean.
There are the titles displayed on the thumbnails already, as you can see on the demo page.

Hey guys!

Everything is working fine for a while now, got a lot of compliment’s about it, THANKS!!

Now one question.. When I embed a Vimeo video, it show up in the “customize” window. But not on the actual page..

This is how it looks on the customize page : http://i.imgur.com/4KxFvht.png And like this on the page : http://i.imgur.com/zaLSnbJ.png How can I get this right..?

THANKS!

Stef

adraft

When you’re adding a video to the custom page, you must paste the embed code into the html area:

html

Default-user

Still not working.. :(

adraft

I tested it and it works. Make sure to paste embed code instead of link to the video.

I think i’m getting crazy or something..

Doing EVERYTHING you say, and nothing is working! This is how it looks :

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?

adraft

Email sent.

Hi

Love the site – just wondered if I could get rid of the wavey lines that break each section up?

Thanks!

Gav

adraft

Sure, just paste this code into the ADD CUSTOM CSS box:

.divider {display:none;}

Default-user

GREAT – THANKS – ONE LAST QUESTION

HOW DO I CHANGE THE FONT FOR THE MAIN TITLE OF THE SITE THAT SITS OVER THE SLIDESHOW

Default-user

OH AND CAN I MAKE THE THUMBNAILS SQUARE RATHER THAN THE CURRENT DESIGN THAT HAS THE CORNERS CUT OFF??

tHANKS!

adraft

@How do I change the font…
All the necessary info is in the documentation file.

@Can I make the thumbnails square…
Yes, just change previous code in the ADD CUSTOM CSS to:

.divider, .corner_top, .corner_bottom {display:none;}

I am using this theme for videos – but the thumbnails in the portfolio page use a screenshot from the video which looks low-quality. Can I use a different image for this that when clicked takes you to the video?

adraft

Unfortunately it depends on the video provider. Read more here.

Hey there! I absolutely love the template—congratulations! I have a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to add another navigation tab that is that same as the ‘Pages’ one?

2. Is it possible to take away altogether the ‘Contact’ tab? I’d rather have another ‘Pages’ one, instead.

3. Is it possible to change the color of the title font that’s over the slider?

Thank you so much! Again, congratulations! Really rad theme!

adraft

Thank you!

Some of them are possible and some aren’t. Please contact me for more details.

how would i be able to replace the title name with a logo.

thanks in advance, love the theme.

adraft

You can’t. It must be done manually. Please contact me and I will make that change for you.

Default-user

hello,

i received your email although i don’t understand the coding. what i wanted to do was to replace the title on the slide with a logo.

adraft

You don’t need to understand coding. Just check out my attachment again. All you need to do is to replace your old Tumblr code with this one.

If you have more questions please reply to my email.
