Demo Data - Missing Templates

Hi Dan -

1. I don’t see a template page for “portfolio detail” (in the menu on the demo page)

OR

2. All I have is “blog overview” not “blog entry” as shown on the demo site.

I’d like to be able to use that demo content.

Please advise. Thanks.

WOW DAN, when you had me do that reinstall thing, it TOTALLY RESET everything! My slider is GONE. Of course, I have no back up. Wow. Just wow…

Default-user

Map gone, background images gone…word to the wise…don’t do what I just did. LOL.

SubatomicThemes

Hi Susan,

Your “Portfolio Detail” is a single portfolio page example, just like the blog entry. Same for the team members too.

Thanks.

If I generate a new icon for font awesome, how do I add it to the font awesome collection of icons?

For instance I used iconmoon to generate a new custom svg. The zip file contains all the css. Now, how do I integrate it with the theme?
yes, sometimes I am just thick as a brick :)

Hi LeilasLass,

Any extra CSS will need to be enqueued using wp_enqueue_style().

Open “functions.php” and add it within the chimera_scripts() function.

Alternatively, you can try this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/svg-vector-icon-plugin/

Thanks :)

LeilasLass

thanks, thinks Ill try the pluggy, looks easier. One more question. How to change the texts that appear on the slider images with text? Example

Page Divider Shortcode – is there a way to set/control the height of this?

Thanks. —-Susan

SubatomicThemes

Hi,

Only through the CSS. The height is supposed to be flexible depending on the content inside, like a gallery for example.

Cheers.

Default-user

I’ve gone line by line in the CSS. Could you please tell me the “class” name I am looking for and what section it is in? I could find nothing that referenced “page divider”, so a hint would be helpful. I understand CSS. Thanks.

SubatomicThemes

Hi Susan,

The page divider class name is called page-divider and is generated via the shortcodes plugin. You can find it in css > chimera-shortcodes.css starting at line 545: .page-divider .divider-images

You can adjust the paddings here to change the height.

Is this what you were looking for?

Thanks.

Seems a lot of knowledge and skill is required about using Photoshop for changing slider texts with this theme which I do not have. Hopes I am incorrect, but I can not change the demo text on any of the slides. Can you tell me where I do this?

SubatomicThemes

Hi,

Those are images and the PSDs for those are included. Alternatively, you can add your own images.

LeilasLass

Thanks,, pretty much figured that out. Like I said, psd changes, not my thing :)
Wishes that had been made clear before purchasing
Bought another one…Yet again.

Will try another time with this theme when I am not so time constrained.

SubatomicThemes

Hi LeilasLass,

If you only need text changing on the slider, I’d be happy to do this for you.

Under went to the Appearance > Theme Options section the right hand side is blank and I only see the menus. Seen this issue before?

SubatomicThemes

Hi,

It sounds like a screen width issue. Does the content appear further down underneath the menu?

You can click on the icon in the top left of the theme options panel to view in single page mode. That might make things easier.

Thanks.

I also have the Chimera shortcode plugin installed and activated, but I don’t see the menu for adding the shortcodes while editing a page or post.

SubatomicThemes

Hi cliston,

I’m currently trying to update this to work with WordPress 3.9. This is a theme issue with the new TinyMCE editor. Should be available soon.

Thanks.

Love the Theme! My header file continues to disappear after I apply it to my page. The file is in the header section Appearance > Header. I have to select the <strongheader every time for it to reappear. Please help.

SubatomicThemes

Hi tamaranmitchell,

Could you send me a link to your site through my profile? I’d like to investigate further.

Thanks :)

Default-user

Thanks for the quick response! I’ve had time to poke around a little an found an adequate solution. I uploaded an additional header and selected “Random.” This seems to have resolved the issue.

SubatomicThemes

On a quick note.. Have you tried clearing your browser’s cache and then re-upload the image?

Hi I seem to be having an issue with the Portfolio section.

Right now I have 2 Portfolio Categories:

Name: Event Collateral Slug: event-collateral Name: Websites Slug: web

I created 6 Portfolio items, 3 of them were to show up in Event collateral, and 3 of them were to show up in Websites.

I have added each of these Portfolio items to the proper category (portfolio name) but for some reason the Event Collateral section doesn’t show the portfolio items. Is it because of the name Event Collateral is two words?

Here is the example.

Hi,

Sent you an email with this fix, but for anyone else wondering why all of their portfolio items aren’t showing, you need to edit the portfolio page template you are using to display them, and change the “posts_per_page” to “-1”. This will display all of your portfolio projects.

Cheers :)

Hello,

I would like to change out the banner to a custom video. However I need the dimensions for the top main banner on the home page. Can you please tell me where to find this?

Thanks,

Kyla

SubatomicThemes

Hi Kyla,

The CSS you’re looking for is #home-slider and it’s set to 100% width and “auto” height. The CSS can be found at line 716 in “style.css”.

Thanks :)

Dan.

I cannot seem to find the hover over shadow effect in the CSS that the footer has when you bring your mouse over a link.

Would you happen to know what area this would be in? thanks

SubatomicThemes
On line 2230 in style.css, you can find it there:
#page-footer a:hover {
    text-decoration: none;
    text-shadow: 4px 4px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.75);
}

Is this what you were after?

Cheers :)

Hi, for some reason on each of the pages, the top header logo doesn’t seem to span all the way across the screen as intended.

Below you can see one page as an example here:

http://www.cliston.com/clcnew/about-us/

From what I have the featured image set correctly, and the image is the same demo image.

Any information on this would be great, thanks

SubatomicThemes

Hi,

It looks like you are using the featured image to set the header image. Try and use WordPress’ header image option instead. This is found in Appearance -> Header.

Cheers.

We removed the featured image from all page but are now having problems with the header image disappearing: after being set, published and proofed live, it’s disappearing when any other change is made and published on any page.

We go into Appearance > Header and set the photo there. There is only one image in the “uploaded images” area that we have selected. We hit save changes and go to view it on any page and it works. THEN we go and update another page (doesn’t matter which page or what we update) and the header disappears on every page.

First we tried deleting every image we had in the header area to start with a clean slate. Then we continued to upload different images, different file types and none of them will stick. We made sure that NONE of the pages have a “featured image” set.

Hi,

We change the theme to twenty thirteen and uploaded a header image and did NOT have this same problem. The header stuck after making a change to the other page. We changed it back to Chimera and continue to have the same issue.

Thanks

SubatomicThemes

Hi,

Can you send me a link and/or login details through my profile page, I’d like to take a closer look. I had some login info from you before, but it seems to have been changed.

You could check the page using “view source” and see what kind of link WordPress is outputting, if any. The function I’m using is “header_image()”, the one that the codex recommends. This should echo the image’s url.

Thanks.

Hi,

We want to replace the car in the main content area with a video/animation. What formats does this theme support? It will be 30 seconds and fairly high quality, if that matters. Will I need to purchase a plug in? Is there anything unique about this theme I should be aware of?

Note: I’m not a web designer, just sorting our the elements so all goes smoothly when we get one in.

Thanks!

Hi Kyla,

The Homepage slider only supports the Fraction Slider, which is a jQuery plugin and only supports images. However videos can be embedded in pages quite easily when editing posts.

Thanks :)

Hi Just wanted to know if it is possible to add navigation to the slider? Thanks.

SubatomicThemes

Hi,

Any link within the footer should be white by default. Do you have a URL or screenshot so I can take a look?

Thanks.

Default-user

Do have an email I can send it to?

SubatomicThemes

Sure,

you can message me via my profile page. Click on my name :)

Thanks.

Hello, I tried the issue with the wordpress version 9.1 but does not work the module shortcodes, but if it works with version 8. What I can not run is the Slider, but I set the images do not appear on the site. Why not work?

Thank you

SubatomicThemes

Hi,

Support is only available to people who have purchased the theme.

Thanks.

Default-user

Hello, if you have purchased the item, someone else bought it and gave it to install, I would greatly appreciate if you could help me

Thank you

SubatomicThemes

Hi harold_caceres,

Did the person who give you this theme also give you a purchase ID? If so, can you email me it via my profile page please. (don’t post it here).

Thanks.

hello SubatomicThemes, thanks for replying, on page settings-> reading on the front page is selected option * latest posts or would have to choose? Thank you

SubatomicThemes

Hi,

Yes, choose the homepage that you created and set that as your front page. Select a different page for your “blog” page.

Thanks.
