Hello,

Excellent theme. I really love the simplicity and clean layout!

I would like to be able to add a widget to my portfolio page. I’ve already created an appropriate page template which I use elsewhere in the site but I would also like to apply this template to the portfolio page. Can you give me some pointers on how to go about doing this?

Thank you!! Colin

WPExplorer

Hi Colin,

Sorry for the delay! Basically you would need to edit single-portfolio.php to add your sidebar function. If you have a look at single.php which is used for the blogs you can see how the HTML should look like for a post with a sidebar.

Default-user

Thanks for the help! I was actually looking to put a sidebar on my ”../portfolio” page, which I now understand is the archive page. You steered me in right direction. Thanks again

WPExplorer

Great!

ps: You might want to check out our latest theme Total, it allows for extremely easy editing of the portfolio pages (they aren’t archives now) via drag/drop – http://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019

I’ve added a number of services to my page, but when I click on the image or learn more buttons on the homepage it leads to 404 not found pages. Do you have any idea where the services are? It seems like the …/services/ is not being created.

Thanks. Noel

Hi Noel,

Have you tried re-saving your permalinks at Settings->Permalinks? That usually fixes this WordPress bug.

Default-user

Thanks, that seemed to work! Much appreciated.

Hello again … could you have a look to this url pleae ? http://bit.ly/1b6oR6V : the archives by year doesn’t seem to be properly styled. Any idea to fix this issue ?

WPExplorer

Sorry about the delay, I responded to your last comment. This is an easy fix, just contact me via my profile page for the updated file. Thanks for letting me know of the bug!

Default-user

I messaged you yesterday … I hope you got it !

WPExplorer

I emailed you back with the updated theme. Maybe double check your spam?

Default-user

I got it … thank you for the fix !

Great, thank you for your previous answer. I have one more question, if you please. Is there an easy way to apply ul and ol styling to this theme for making a basic bulleted list or numbered list? Out of the box the theme seems to have unstyled lists. Thanks!

WPExplorer

There should be CSS for bullet lists when in posts/pages, maybe the area where you are trying to add it doesn’t have styling applied to it. Can you show me an example?

Default-user

Yes, you are right. I can see now that it is only the Items (under Services) where lists are flat looking. I have modified the theme a bit but not in a way that I think would cause this issue.

Examples: -post with ul: http://nsand.drcolinmacleod.com/test/ -item with ul: http://nsand.drcolinmacleod.com/about/test2/

Thanks, I appreciate the support.

WPExplorer

Hi there,

Sorry for the delayed response and thanks for letting me know where exactly the issue is!

Basically in single-services.php the following line:

div id="content" class="site-content clr" role="main" 

Is missing the “entry” class name so it should look like this:

div id="content" class="entry site-content clr" role="main" 

(note I removed the < and > from the divs above because otherwise it won’t post here on themeforest).

I’ll submit the update in the next version, again sorry for the delay and thanks for letting me know of the bug!

Default-user

Thanks for the change!! FYI, It also appears that lists in widgets are unstyled.

An example: http://nsand.drcolinmacleod.com/articles/

WPExplorer

I don’t style the lists in widgets because it can affect 3rd party plugins with widgets. But you can add some CSS if you want to your site to style those inside the text widget. Example:

.widget_text ul { list-style: disc; }
.widget_text ol { list-style: decimal; }

one more question, this time about “related post” : for me, the function isn’t working … it’s always showing the same posts (last published) : I can deal with it but is there a way to show the excerpt instead the generated description ?

WPExplorer

The default is supposed to show random posts, if you are using a host such as WPEngine which disables rand order in WordPress then it might not be working like that. I can alter the theme to pull from the same category as the current portfolio item – it would require an update. I’m currently on vacation but if you send me a private message I can send you the updated files as soon as they are ready.

You should be able to use the excerpt field in the post editor to add custom excerpts, is it not working for ya?

Hello, I can’t seem to make the archives page to work properly. It seems as if the stylesheet isn’t loaded. I’ve tested on to different installations. One as a childteme (http://capevoweb2.azurewebsites.net/2013/12/)and one with parent theme (http://dttemp.dk/capevo/2013/11/). Do you know what might be wrong? Thanks in advance #

Default-user

Ohh and by the way I have the same issue as captatio above :)

WPExplorer

The issue was I had the wrong div name in the archives – sorry! Please send me a private message so I can email you the updated file. I can’t update on ThemeForest at the moment because I want to do some other big updates before I push it out!

Default-user

Thank you :) Where do I write you a private message?

I am considering buying this theme, but was wondering if there was a way to truly test out a demo on my iPhone 5 first? I have an idea from resizing the browser on my desktop, but want a more accurate depiction to help me decide. I noticed one developer had a scannable QR code link for mobile demos. Can you help me with this?

WPExplorer

Really sorry for the delay. You can always access a theme directly by going to the URL. In this case that would be wpexplorer-demos.com/cleaner/ – you can see the URL by closing the iframe in the demo. Then you can type it into the phone.

We recently released a new/improved theme though you might want to consider instead: http://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019?ref=WPExplorer

Hello, i just got another little question: Is it possible to change the width of the sidebar to e.g. 320px without loosing the responsiveness?

Best Regards!

WPExplorer

Yes,

You can target the desktop size only using media queries. Example:

@media only screen and (min-width: 960px) {
/*make sidebar 320px wide*/
.sidebar-container.col.span_7 { width: 320px; margin-left: 0; float: right; }
/*decrease the div next to the sidebar so it fits*/
.content-area.span_17 { width: 600px; }
}

So you can add this CSS to your site either via a plugin or child theme and change the sizes to whatever works best for you.

At the last update we need to update all the admin folder, but how to update this folder without losing any configuration?

WPExplorer

You shouldn’t have made any edits inside this folder. If you did edit those files, then I assume you kept a changelog somewhere so you can re-add your edits?

Default-user

I didnt made any edit inside this folder, but when i update the entire folder i lost things i edit through wordpress cms and themes configs(ex. number of services displayed at the home, the default theme logo return, etc)

WPExplorer

This shouldn’t have happend ;( Probably a bug in the database…If the only issue is the theme options though you should be able to re-add those in a few minutes ;)

The edits made to the admin will make it much faster and better for WP 3.8!

Default-user

The problem is that after update i cant open the theme options on the left menu. I click theme options, but i can not see any configuration. I click “services” but open a blank page inside the cleaner theme options box.

Default-user

if i go back to the older admin folder, i can edit and the configuration is ok, nothing is lost.

WPExplorer

Did you try clearing your browser cache to make sure it wasn’t loading old scripts maybe?

It should be working fine – http://cl.ly/image/1i211x3v0O24

If you want me to have a look though, send me a private message.

Hi, my business is centered around the color green and I want to have green buttons instead of blue. Also, I want to add call-to-action buttons to the slider. I will buy this theme if I can have these two features. Thank you.

Default-user

Hi again, are these two features available?

WPExplorer

Hi there!

You would have to use CSS to alter these 2 things in this theme. If you like my newest theme, you can actually change the colors right in the theme options panel – http://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019

Hello! I’m Japanese user.

Please tell me how to display heading and breadcrumb at Blog page.
my page
http://www.cross-cleaner.sakura.ne.jp/news/

Although it should be able to display since it is displayed that it is a sample page.
http://wpexplorer-demos.com/cleaner/blog/
WPExplorer

Couple things:

1. If you want the heading on the blog you need to go to Settings->Reading and leave the option for the posts page blank. Your blog is currently using index.php as opposed to the blog template so there is no title – refer to the docs for more info.

2. The breadcrumbs is not built-in. The theme includes support for WordPress SEO by Yoast and the included breadcrumb function -http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/

Default-user

Thank you for your reply. Heading came to come out by the method of 1! Thanks a lot. This theme is the coolest , simple and refined!

This theme is canceling out my bullet points. How do I fix this??

WPExplorer

Bullets are reset in the stylesheet and then styled for posts/pages. Where exactly are you having the issue? Also is your theme up to date?

Default-user

Theme is version 1.4 - this is what I’m seeing in the stylesheets: /* Lists ----------- */ .entry ul, .entry ol { margin: 30px 0 30px 30px } .entry ul { list-style: disc } .entry ol { list-style: decimal }

WPExplorer

Ok, but where exactly do you not see the bullet points? URL.

WPExplorer

Thanks for the link! Looks like I forgot to add the class around the content for services. If you open the single-services.php file add an article around the content with the classes entry and clr so it looks like this – http://pastebin.com/cqAGVdcD

If you aren’t sure how to do it send me a private message and I’ll email you the updated file.

Sorry for your troubles!

Default-user

We put a bullet in the bullet point problem. Thanks!

How do I get the box around a menu item (like you have around the ‘purchase’ menu item in the demo)?

WPExplorer

You can do this by adding a class to the menu item you want to apply this style to – http://cl.ly/image/3e0K3c1S0V3z

Looks fine on computer, doesn’t work on mobile and yes responsive is on.

Plus would love to make the fonts on all pages the size of the fonts on the homepage, I can not find it on the stylesheet to change, can it be done with a CSS input?

WPExplorer

- You mean the site won’t load at all? On what mobile device are you testing?

- You shouldn’t ever edit the stylesheet because if you ever update the theme you’ll lose your edits. You’ll want to add custom css to the admin panel or best via a child theme.

To do this would be something like this:

.entry{
font-size: 18px !important;
  color: #81888d;
}

Apple Iphone 4. Top part of page loads, words below the slider aren’t there on the home page but they are on other pages. Whole screen goes white when clicked. Chrome and Safari both effected.

Default-user

I add the CSS via a CSS plugin without any changes. Would also like to increase the menu font size too.

Default-user

also getting 124 rrors when cecking W3C CCS Validator

WPExplorer

There is a setting in the theme panel to disable retina support, this has been known to conflict with certain servers and/or caching plugins/CDNs. Can you try and disable the setting and then clearing your phone cache to check?

If you want you can send me a private message via my profile page with site logins so I can check to see if this is the issue or if it’s something else.

“I add the CSS via a CSS plugin without any changes..” <- I have no idea what you are talking about here.

In creasing the menu font is easy, example:

body #navbar .dropdown-menu a { font-size: 12px; }

There is a lot of CSS3 in the theme, the W3C Validator is experimental, you shouldn’t even bother checking it. Those aren’t really “errors” that would break the site.

Hi,

I have purchased this theme. But I have issues with this theme.

My website is – http://ieeegujaratsection.org/ .

1. On the category page, there is the option to go to the next page, but when I click on “2” page number, “Page Not Found” error comes up. Here is the link to the category page – http://ieeegujaratsection.org/announcements/

2. Also I have Events+ plugin installed on my website. On the Events page, first the event excerpts comes up and again the events content. I do not want the excerpts to come on the events page.

Please help me with these issues.

WPExplorer

Hi there,

1. Go to Settings->Reading and make sure your option for the posts page is NOT pointing over to this page, if it is it will conflict with the blog template and create this 404 error.

2. That shouldn’t be happening on events, I just double checked the theme. Can you make sure that at the top of content.php you have this:

if ( is_singular() ) {

and NOT this:

if ( is_singular( 'post' ) && is_main_query() ) {

If you want send me a private message with temp admin logins and I can fix up the events page for you!

Awesome theme! Easy to use and extremely versatile. Quick Question though. What font Library did you use, and is there anywhere I can see what they all look like in a list format or something?
