Quick questions….trying to create a post thumbnail so it shows up as a featured image to replace the ones on the main page. I’m looking for the post thumbail option but it’s not showing up like it says in the documentation….

I get the “set featured image” but not the “set thumbnail” option.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help!

Kriesi

yea, setting the featued image creates a thubmnail automatically as well, just use that feature :)

In reference to the last question, I am looking to use HTML placeholder as the 4 columns on the homepage/mainpage…. and I want to put in images above the text as it shows when they are set to Post. But, I’m not sure how to put images in the PHP file correctly so they look the same as a “Post” image.

Lil help? Thanks!

Kriesi

its a basic image tag with the width of 200px and the height of 130px:

<img src="files/image.jpg" height="130" alt="" width="200" />

@blakejnolan: I dont know if this will help, but to fill the 4 columns with exactly what I wanted on the main page; I just made 4 “Posts” with a category called “promo” and then in the theme settings you can specifiy to display posts with a certain category. I seems to select the latest 4 if you set each column to the same thing. It works well for me and then makes the thumbnail automatically in the theme style.

Krieise, another quick question. I have the logo working fine at top of page, but want to use a small logo at the end of the text blocks on the pages as a finishing touch. The thing is it always puts a keyline box around the small logo so it looks funny. Is there a way to manually ‘switch the border box off’ on images that don’t need it?

Kriesi

if you add a class with the name “noborder” all borders and paddings should be removed :)

@cwrigley: Thanks for the info those posts show up anywhere else on the site, or are they hidden?

One more question, how do you set the order of slides in the Slider Entries menu….? Thanks!

Kriesi

the slides are ordered by date, last published is shown first. you can simply change the publishing date since this is shown nowhere in the front end, just at the admin panel….

Awesome template! Thanks for such great work. QQ – For some reason I’m not able to set up the accordion slide to look like the one on the demo. The description text does not show up when hovering over the images, and the transparent overlay is black not white…any ideas on how to fix this?

See www.todayicommit.com

Thanks!

Kriesi

try the following: in css/style 4.css in search and change at line 121:

.feature_excerpt {
background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
color:#333333;
}
and in lin 126
.feature_excerpt strong {
color:#333333;
}

Hi Kriesi, congratulations for the theme, I just bought it.

Two questions:

1. I would like to make a photography portfolio. The Portfolio page shows the thumbnails and Read more shows the Single Portfolio page. But there is the default post preview image with fixed aspect ratio. I want to display here the photo with actual aspect ratio instead. Can I do this?

2. Where can I change the portfolio thumbnails size, for example to 200×200 pixels?

Thank You!

Tibor

Kriesi

in single.php at line 35 change:

             $big_prev_image = kriesi_post_thumb($post->ID, array('size'=> array('L'),
                                                             'wh' => $k_option['custom']['imgSize']['L'],
                                                             'display_link' => array('lightbox'), 
                                                            'linkurl' => array ('XL','_preview_big'),
                                                            ));

to

             $big_prev_image = kriesi_post_thumb($post->ID, array('size'=> array('fullwidth'),
                                                             'wh' => array('width'=>"", 'height'=>""),
                                                             'display_link' => array('lightbox'), 
                                                            'linkurl' => array ('XL','_preview_big'),
                                                            ));

Im rather new to Themeforest. How do we know when there is an update to the theme? Do we get notified? I dont see where the ver of the theme is noted anywhere on themeforest.

Im anxious to see the autoplay function working on the News Slider.

Kriesi

Thanks Your answer!

I can change the portfolio preview image size to 200×200 pixel, that is OK.

But in the single portfolio post the suggested modification in single.php doesn’t work. It displays a 100×100 pixel image.

http://www.tibornemes.com/portfolio/test-portfolio-item/

I would like to display a 610 pixel width image, BUT the height is not fixed, it is proportional to the original aspect ratio.

Could You help me?

Thank You!

Kriesi

did you really change the whole statement as suggested? it sounds like this line

'wh' => array('width'=>"", 'height'=>""),

wasnt applied correctly

Thanks! Changing those css lines did the trick! Now there were these few other issues that have come up:

1)Breadcrumbs? How to enable?

2)Excerpts? How to show show excerpts rather than intro text/read more in blog?

3)Disable lightbox? I read through the documentation and I added the class ‘noLightbox’ at line 37 of Single.php. It disabled the lightbox but the image still shows as a hyperlink…..when you click it you get a 404 error http://www.todayicommit.com/?portfolio=lorem-ipsum

4)Image Links? When setting an image to “link to post URL ”, the pic does not actually link to the post, it links only to the image itself + a duplicate image underneath + the description. Is this a bug? Any ideas?

5)Blog Images? Can the blogpost thumbnails be set to be exactly like portfolio thumbnails – need them to be proportional to original image + same size – or is this something that has to be done manually each time?

6)Portfolio Images? Once an image is clicked and the link brings you to the article, it needs to have the image kept as the same size as the thumbnail (200×130) and be right-aligned to the text right-rather than below the image. http://www.todayicommit.com/portfolio/ – click the first image to see what I mean

7)Copyright Info? How to remove “Design by Kriesi.at – Wordpress Themes”?

Thanks again for such an awesome template!!!

Kriesi

1.) the theme doesnt come with a breadcrumb navigation. i would recommend the breadcrumb nav XT wordpress plugin.

2.) open template_blog.php, change line 72 from

the_content(__('Read more &raquo;','cleancut')); 

to

the_excerpt();

3.) you need to set it to “none”. setting a class of nolightbox removes the lightbox, not the link

4.) this only works for featured images, not for regular images you ad into the post. did you try it and it didnt work for you? could you give me a direct link to a page with that error so I can take a look?

5.) See answer 6.

6.) In single.php you can change the image creating function:

$big_prev_image = kriesi_post_thumb($post->ID, array('size'=> array('M'),
                                                             'wh' => $k_option['custom']['imgSize']['M'],
                                                             'display_link' => array('lightbox'), 
                                                            'linkurl' => array ('XL','_preview_big'),
                                                            'img_attr' => array('class'=>'alignright')
                                                            ));

however this will also affect your blog preview images

7.) open footer php, edit line 17

Kriesi…great stuff…the theme is coming together nicely…

One question…how do I get a vimeo clip on the main page slider? There’s no place to put the link…

works great on the portfolio items but can’t figure it out for the slider….

thanks!

Kriesi

when adding/editing a slide set the url field bellow the title and text area to “link manually” and enter the link there :)

I have decided to switch one of my customers to this theme. It is very nice. Love the portfolio design.

I have a request that I hope you can help. I like the design and coloring of the “CleanCut-Default” skin for all the page layouts; but i like the slider that is on the “Clean cut – Boxed Light” skin. I started looking at the css and got a little intimidated. Would it be better to change the slider on Default skin, or to change the backgrounds and colors on Boxed light skin?

Id appreciate some direction. Bottom line Id like the Boxed Light slider look in the Default skin coloration/backgrounds.

I made backups of the css files and decided to give it a go. (moved the curved slider into the style1 skin) It wasnt as hard as I thought. I’ve got it how I want now; but have lots of content to move in still.

http://averytuttle.com/test/

Now; if the News slider would autoplay I would be a really happy camper.

Kriesi

looks very nice, good work. The news slider autoplay is on my list, unfortunatley with wordpress 3 just released I need to do a lot of work on other themes, so this is not really high priority for me atm. sorry ;)

Hi first of all I would like to compliment you on a great theme

However I have 1 problem lol

On the Mainpage options where you can select that goes in the 4 columns I want to select a portfolio item but it only gives me the option for post, pages and widgets.

Is there any way I can select 4 portfolio items instead?

Thank You

Joe

Kriesi

sorry this is unfortunatley not possible currently :/ I will have a look at it and if it can be pulled of without too much problems i will add the feature in an upcoming version.

@sugarbush: I did it by editing Style1.css and style.css A bit of trial and error. However; the author has the css well commented; so it was easy to find the slider section of the code. I also had to change the color of the curve graphic at the bottom of the slider in photoshop to match the offwhite background of style1.

It seems to all work fine; though i cant garuntee i didnt create any bugs. I would be happy to send you the 3 files if you can get me your email address.
