Hallo,

I just bought your theme and it’s great. When I install the theme, which folder do I have upload on the server. “Ciola” or “Ciola-child” or Both?

And can I rename the name of the root folder?

Thx

Best wishes

Cubell

Hey Dalee83,

That is part of the translation files, did you create your translation files?

Hi Cubell,

No i dont, how can i create a translation file?

Hey again,

This is how you do it:

1- Go to the theme translation folder, which is located in “Ciola/library/translation/”

2- Make a copy of the file ‘default.po’ and rename the file to the locale of your language, example: Spanish would be ‘es_ES.po’

3- Open Poedit (can be downloaded for free from http://www.poedit.net/) and open the file you have created in it

4- Translate all the strings and save your changes. After you save, you will have two files, example: Spanish would have ‘es_ES.po’ and ‘es_ES.mo’

5- Upload these files to “Ciola/library/translation/”

6- Make sure your WordPress config file (located in the root of your website “yoursite/wp-config.php”) has the following line set to your locale: “define (‘WPLANG’, ‘es_ES’);”

And your site will automatically load your translation files to replace all the English text.

Hope this helps and happy holidays!

Hello Cubell I use Ciola that suits me perfectly! I want to allow several people to write articles by email with the plugin “Postie”. It works well … but the articles are written in the format by default. I will wish that they appear by default in the format “Featured On Homepage / Category” + “Full-Width Post” + Featured Image Settings = “Full-Width”! Best Regards Zuggy

I tried to change the items with Custom CSS, but without satisfactory results. Would you have a solution for me to force this writing?

Cubell

Hi Zuggy,

Thanks again for using Ciola :)

I’m afraid that that is actually quite tricky! Because your plugin doesn’t know about the theme options, and the only real way is for you to edit the posts after being published via mobile to change the settings. I wish there were an easier way!

Hi there, it’s me again! I was just wondering if there is a possibility to change the following: Can I change the settings so that the posts shown underneath the grid are not the same as in the grid but continue with the next post after the ones in the grid?

Thanks!

Deli

It’s no problem! Happy I could help :)

Thanks again for your help. It was very easy for me to change from the blog style to the module style and now I like the design much, much more. Just one more question: Will you eventually add more social media buttons for the footer and the Ciola Social Media Widget? I miss Instagram and a symbol to use for the newsletter. That would be very helpful. :)

Cubell

You are welcome, happy I was able help :)

For the social media widget, I’d recommend instead installing a different plugin that already has all the social networks you want, for example this one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-media-widget/ has Instagram already.

Hope that helps!

Hi,

Great theme! I bought it and i have a couple of questions. Is there any way to make the header transparent and not white as part of the rest of the page? Is there a support forum for codes and modifications?

Thanks,

Pedro

Cubell

Hey Pedro,

Thanks for the kind words and for choosing Ciola :)

Try this, copy/paste the following code into your Theme Options -> Custom Code -> Custom CSS box:

#cb-inner-header { background: transparent!important; }

I hope this helps!

It didn’t work :/

I have another question, sorry to bother again, but could you tell me the steps to translate the theme? I’ve just modified the default.po file, but i’m not sure where to put the .po and .mo files. Which folder do I copy them?

Cubell

Hey again,

If you can share your URL I can take a look and see what is happening to the header background.

Sure thing, simply put your translated files into ciola/library/translation the theme will automatically load the relevant language files.

Just make sure your WordPress config file (located in the root of your website “yoursite/wp-config.php”) has the following line set to your locale: “define (‘WPLANG’, ‘es_ES’);” with instead of es_ES, it has your language locale in, so that your site knows it is meant to be that language.

Hope this helps.

Cubell

I can’t seen to get custom colors or custom backgrounds to work on pages. They work fine on categories, and I can get the featured image to work as the background on posts, but pages don’t have the featured image as a background, and the custom background and colors don’t work.

Cubell

Hi hXcHector,

Could you please open a private ticket at http://support.cubellthemes.com and include the URL of the page where it isn’t working, and also include temporary admin login details to take a look at the code to try to figure out what’s going on.

Hi,

I get the following error (missing: author. missing: entry-title. missing: updated). when testing with the google structured data tool. Also in Webmastertools. According to the contribution ( http://fivera.net/hatom-feed-hatom-entry-error-wordpress-solution/ ) that would be easy to repair but I find “the_title” not in the single.php file. Is it stored in other files?

Thx and best wishes

Cubell

Hi Dalee83,

Do you have the by line and about the author boxes disabled by any chance? If you can open a ticket at http://support.cubellthemes.com and include the relevant URL to take a look at the source code, that would be helpful.

Hello, I have a problem with putting PHP code in advertisement bar. I wold like to put code with random selecting of advertises. Code work on sidebar, but on top adv. 468×60 Banner don’t work. If you want I can send you a code witch I want to implement on my website.

Cubell

Hi Sfetic,

Thanks for choosing Valenti.

For security reasons, WordPress doesn’t allow PHP to be executed that way, which is why it doesn’t work. You will need to install a plugin for it. Either install a rotating ad plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/adrotate/

Or install a plugin that allows you to create a shortode from PHP code, such as: https://wordpress.org/plugins/shortcode-exec-php/ And then insert the shortcode into the header ad area.

I hope this helps.

Hi, thanks for this awesome theme. I just got one more question: In your demo the grid shows zoomed images, that fit into their frames. On my blog the images don’t get scaled up and have blank space beneath it. How can I make them to scale up?

Default-user

Thanks for your quick reply. I tried different images and figured out that some work and some do not. I think its no matter of the resolution. I’m always using 2560×1080 images. :/

Thanks for your help.

Default-user

Okay I found a solution. It seemed like there is a problem when wordpress converts the images to jpegs. When I upload only jpgs instead of pngs the zooming just works fine :)

Cubell

No problem! Happy you managed to sort it out :)

Hey there, i am running a local, xampp, blank Wordpress Installation with WP 4.1. I copied ciola and ciola-child to the right path. using the main theme is no problem. when i activate the child-theme by clicking “use” in wp dashbord, i get a php error message that the script is looking for some data from the extensions/meta-box/ path.

copying this folder solves the error message and from now on i can change styles etc.

is there another solution for this or am i doing something wrong?

M

Cubell

Hi M,

I just did the same setup and I can confirm that is a bug! I have already fixed it and it will be included in the next update, but you can use it as you have it, as it will be the same :)

Cubell

Hi! Thanks a lot for the great theme! I bought it a few weeks ago and am now busy building a site using it. Ciola is brilliant – very beautiful and flexible. One question, please: I have tried the “Ciola Top Reviews” widget, and it works fine, except that it ranks the reviews based on the average score for all the criteria. I am, however, using the Final Rating Override option for the overall rating. Is it possible to sort on that “override” rating instead of the averages?

Another great improvement (but I understand that would require a lot of work) would be to be able to define sets of criteria and attach them to categories. For example, if the category is “software”, the criteria “Ease of use”, “Performance” and “Value for money” would appear automatically. If that is possible, the next step would be to be able to make the widget rank the reviews based on one criterion only.

And the last small suggestion: I know it is possible to define a standard color for each category. It would be nice to have these colors carried over to the home page as well. For example, if Category A is red and Category B is blue, it would be cool to have a mix of red and blue posts on the home page, which combines posts from both categories.

Thanks again for the awesome product!

Cubell

Hey OplanStripsl,

Thanks so much for the kind words, suggestions and for choosing Ciola. I will look into the override not being considered in the widgets, but without looking at code, I think it may be a tricky one, as the solution would likely be to add a database query to check for ones with overrides, and then run another query as normal, then combine them, which sounds like a bloated solution perfomance wise. I will definitely see if it is possible to do though. Ideally your overrides wouldn’t be too dramatically different than the average score, to try and get the widget to be accurate, but I realise that could defeat the point of having an override!

Thanks again though!

Cubell

Default-user

Hi! Thanks for the answer. Just a suggestion: why don’t you simply add an option to the widget allowing the user to sort by the average score OR by the override score? I really doubt anyone would need to have them combined.

Hi Ercilliov,

Thanks for the kind words and for choosing Ciola :)

Can you please open a ticket at http://support.cubellthemes.com and include screenshots of what you mean, because i’m afraid I don’t quite understand what you mean. I’ll do my best to help then!
