Hey there…

I want to change the facebook icon and was able to locate it through FTP… But I want to change it from 32×32px to a custom icon/pic with the dimensions 250×32px ;) Is it possible and how to do it?

Tried to just change it with a custom made, but the dimensions get “compressed” to 32×32 making it look weird?

Thanks… Really great theme (Rated it 5 stars)

SwiftIdeas

Are you referring to the social shortcode image, or the icon in the footer?

Glad you’re happy with the theme :)

Sorry… I forgot to mention. The icon in the footer:)

SwiftIdeas

Use the following custom css:

#footer-social-icons li.facebook, #footer-social-icons li.facebook a { width: 250px; }

Hey Ed,

Thanks for creating this great Theme!

I’ve just about finished my new Clique website but have a few alterations to make that require your guidance.

1. When you enter either a Client, Team or Standard Template Page, the title of the page and thumbnails transition down. Is it possible to eliminate both the transition and title?

2. On the portfolio page, I have 35+ categories that i’ve organised work into. When the filter menu drops down the categories go beyond the bottom of the page. Can you think of a solution to this? Could we split the filter into 2 columns somehow?

3. Is it possible to alter the menu text rollover colour? You can’t seem to adjust this in the Colour Customiser and I’ve tried finding where to change it in the CSS but no luck, if you could tell me where to change it that would be greatly appreciated.

4. With the exception of facebook, the social media icons aren’t showing, any suggestions?

Thanks again for the great Theme.

SwiftIdeas

You’re welcome :)

1. Log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com with a link and I’ll help you out with some css for this. The transition occurs because the height of the header can vary based on your logo.

2/3. I’ll look at this too.

4. Make sure you’ve added the info to the Theme Options (Footer/Social).

Hi Ed,

Your them is pretty awesome. I have one question… How does the theme handle image captions in the slider posts, sliders and images?

I use captions all the time on projects for the arts that need to show image info and credits.

Thanks

SwiftIdeas

Thanks for the kind words :)

Unfortunately there isn’t any caption support as standard, you would need to add this in manually – but it wouldn’t be too much work.

- Ed

Default-user

Will you guys be able to point me in the right direction as to where I can do this?

SwiftIdeas

In single-portfolio.php, you’d want to use something such as this within the attachment foreach loop:

$caption = $attachment->post_excerpt;

Then you can output the caption in the way flexslider expects it (http://www.woothemes.com/flexslider/) under Advanced > Adding Captions.

Hope that helps, although it will require coding knowledge.

Thank you for your quick response and help. Much appreciated! I will be buying soon.

Hey Ed, I’m using your theme to put together a video portfolio website (www.DarkwingProductions.net) and I have a bunch of questions:
  1. What’s the best way to use a font from my computer? I don’t want to slow down my site. Should I use a plugin and if so, which one? What about using @font-face or cufon.com?
  2. How do I avoid the video containers being bigger than the videos themselves? I want to avoid the black bars that appear around most of my video embeds. The only place where I don’t see the extra space is when I look at the detail page for blog posts with video.
  3. How can I include a media type overlay icon for portfolio items in the grid? I want to add some sort of video icon so that visitors know when they hover over over my post what type it is.
  4. <Can I use an animated gif as thumbnail for the blog or portfolio grid? What about as a featured image?
  5. Is there anyway I can link the heart/love button to Facebook? I’d like to have it so that when someone clicks on the heart, it also registers as a Facebook like.
  6. I see there is a calendar icon and a link icon – are there any more included icons I can use? I want to use icons for each section in the portfolio detail (eg. map icon, skills icon, etc.). Are they replaceable?
  7. Are there any advantages to using the custom excerpt over the regular excerpt?
  8. I would like to add sharing links to my portfolio and blog items similar to the 2 that are already there (twitter and Facebook). I’m looking to add links for pinterest and Google+, how do I do that? I want them to appear in every portfolio AND blog post.
  9. How can I change the font for the menu only?
  10. I don’t want an “about the author” section in my blog, but when I unclick the option for it, the space and the horizontal line divider is still there. How can I remove that completely so it looks cleaner?
  11. How can I embed all my youtube links so that they start in HD mode? Usually I just add “&hd=1” to the end of the link, but that doesn’t seem to work with this theme.
  12. In the portfolio detail, how can I change the text from “link” so that it reads “View Project” instead?
  13. How can I add a tooltip to the arrow in the bottom right that says “back to top”?
  14. How can I add a pattern to be used as the background for the header and footer? What dimensions should it be? And if I can’t add an image, can I do some sort of CSS gradient instead? Where would I add that code?
  15. Is there a way to add a CSS shadow around all the video containers?
  16. If I create my own custom home page, how can I get the title to not display?
  17. What character is that in the tag cloud widget that separates each tag? It looks like the letter “z”.
  18. Do the image sizes in settings-media have any effect?
  19. How can I change the “X” icon that returns you from the portfolio detail page back to the portfolio grid
  20. As I mentioned before, I’m setting up this site primarily for video with a 16:9 aspect ratio. All of my thumbnails (basically screenshots) in my portfolio are uploaded with that ratio, but somehow the sides are getting cut off. Can I choose my own size for the portfolio thumbnails that would be a derivative of the 1280 * 720 dimensions? If not, what size should my thumbnails be so that I can ensure they don’t get cut.
  21. How can I replace the social media icons in the footer with my own icon set?
  22. Being that the slider in this theme is the flex slider, how can I access or change its options? Basically I want to create a home page with a fairly large slider, but with video instead of images and a couple more tweaks that flexslider is capable of. The slider shortcode is fine for the rest of my site, but for the homepage, I want to build something a little more extensive
Have you considered adding a FAQ for this theme? I tried my best to go through all the comments looking for the answers I need, but it’s very difficult to do on Themeforest. I’m sure you get asked certain questions all the time, so maybe including a FAQ with the theme documentation would cut down on some of the repeat questions.
SwiftIdeas
1 – The theme only supports the standard web fonts, plus Google Web Fonts as standard. You would need to add your own fonts manually using either of those methods, I’d say font-face.
2 – Unfortunately this isn’t really possible as the portfolio videos are sized proportionally to the size of the window.
3 – You would need to manually code this in, the files you’d need to change are /includes/sf-functions.php and style.css
4 – I haven’t tried this, but can’t see why it wouldn’t work. If it doesn’t then WP likely doesn’t support it.
5 – Not as standard, this is a 3rd party plugin so would require custom coding.
6 – http://fortawesome.github.com/Font-Awesome/
7 – No, that is there incase you don’t want the auto-generated one.
8 – You would need to add them manually to single-portfolio.php and single.php (any JS scripts would need to go in the header.php file similarly to the Twitter/FB scripts).
9 – Not available as standard, but the fonts are set in /includes/sf-funcitons.php
10 – That is there by design, but you can use the following css –
.article-body-wrap .share-links { display: none; }
11 – You would need to manually add this in the video_youtube function in functions.php line 401
12 – Find the string in single-portfolio.php
13 – Follow the same code structure as the load more button in footer.php
14 – You would need to add custom css for this, into the Custom CSS box within Theme Options. Can’t really suggest dimensions as the header/footer could be any width due to different screen sizes.
15 – figure > iframe {} should target all video containers.
16 – Hide it using css
.page-id-XXX .title-wrap { display: none; }
17 – It’s meant to be a tag icon, this will be fixed in the next update.
18 – No, the media sizes are set automatically by the theme.
19 – footer.php -
<a id="ajax-close"><i class="icon-remove" /></a>
20 – The standard thumbnail size is 500×375. You can change this in /includes/sf-functions.php lines 228/229.
21 – Replace the images in /images/social/ (they are 32px x 32px as standard.
22 – The options are set in /js/functions.js.php starting on line 233, and the options for transition/autoplay/durations can be changed in the Theme Options.

Hope that helps. We will try and add an FAQ at some point, but unfortunately we don’t have the time at the moment.

I’m having trouble trying to add an icon from fontawesome to the beginning of each portfolio title in the grid. You said “You would need to manually code this in, the files you’d need to change are /includes/sf-functions.php and style.css.” Can you be more specific? Where in those files should I be adding the code (I’ve already made changes to those files, so it’d be more helpful for you to point me to the code instead of line numbers? What do I change?

SwiftIdeas

The portfolio item title is set in sf-functions.php on line 329:

$items .= '<h1 class="portfolio-item-title">'. $item_title .'</h1>';

You might not need to add styling, but see how you go!

- Ed

DialloNoel

I tried changing that line so it looks like this:

$items .= '<h1 class="portfolio-item-title"><i class="icon-play" />'. $item_title .'</h1>';

but nothing changed

hallo if i have the Category A B C D E can i create a portfolio page with filtering A B C and anther portfolio page with filtering A C E D ?

SwiftIdeas

Unfortunately not. The way the multiple portfolios works is to have a parent category for each page, with the filters being children of the parent category.

- Ed

Default-user

so if i use parent category and child i can use filters in portfolio?

SwiftIdeas

Yes, sorry but your question doesn’t make much sense?

Hey Ed! Its a great theme! I love the way how to present the portfolio! Its also nice how you work out the SEO friendly Ajax! Very cool!

One Question before I buy: Is it possible (maybe in a future update) to have a fullpage slider? I like to have a page like this: http://www.schneider-lengauer.at/ Here in Comments I read the wish for a fullpage slider a few times. Hope you can help and give us a template for Clique ;-)

Hi When I download an image, it’s dupliacte in 9 diffĂ©rents sizes on the FTP. What’s wrong ? Thank you in advance for your answer.

SwiftIdeas

This is so that the theme doesn’t load an image that is oversized for it’s use. It’s designed to save bandwidth and speed up your site, it’s a standard WordPress function :)

Hi there

Amazing theme. Am thinking of implementing for a content/media site, however have a couple of questions I was hoping you might clarify for me:

1. Would it be possible to use the Portfolio template as the basis for the site and categories for what would be a very high number of posts/entries in the long term, or would this eventually slow the site down significantly? I prefer the tight layout over the blog setup.

2. Would it be possible to insert G Adsense through Widgets or otherwise below text descriptions and social icons of portfolio items? Or otherwise elsewhere in the site?

3. How big a job would it be to include FB/TW/G+/P share buttons in the title slider on the main Portfolio page(s).

4. How big a job would it be to include FB comments below text description of Portfolio items?

Grateful for an indication how big a job 3 and 4 might be for a WP literate/competent developer. Many thanks in advance!

SwiftIdeas

Hey!

1 – Yes, this is why we’ve implemented the load more functionality. That way you can load a specified amount on page load, and then give the user the ability to load more if they want to.

2 – This would probably be easily possible through the use of a plugin, which would hopefully give you a shortcode which you could then enter anywhere you like in the content, widgets, etc within the theme.

3 – Do you mean on the portfolio item detail page, where there is already FB/TW integrated, or somewhere else?

4 – Shouldn’t be too much work. Would just require including the code, and initializing the comments within the AJAX function that loads the item.

If you are a competent developer then neither of those would be too hard, but we’re happy to advise where needed.

Hope that helps!

- Ed

Default-user

Thanks for the prompt response. RE point 3, I meant on the main portfolio page on the slider that pops up with the title, and having share/tweet counts etc on that slider. Would this be possible and a big job?

Two other quick enquiries:

1. Does the theme include a search function/bar? Not immediately obvious from demo.

2. I presume very easy to change base color scheme to a white background with black menu text etc?

Cheers.

SwiftIdeas

That wouldn’t be too much of a big job for a competent developer, would just be adding the code in the right place. Not sure how the share/tweet counts work though, they might be based off the page URL that you’re currently on?

1 – It does, the standard WordPress widget that you can set for blog post, and standalone pages.

2 – Yes, we’ve implemented the WordPress live colour customizer so that you can change colours on the fly.

Hi Ed,

I’d like to hide the filter selection from Menu on pages is there a way to do this ? thx

ps: happy new year to you!

If you go to edit the portfolio page, you can deselect the show filtering option to hide it.

finally i used to none display the div w/

.portfolio-filter-wrap a.select { text-decoration: none; font-weight: bold; padding: 7px 12px 6px; display: none; line-height: 12px; }

not really nice but works !

Why didn’t you use the provided option?

‘cause i did not find this option to hide filter on portfolio pages :( i probably misunderstood your provided option.

I look at and will be not able to do the change as it looks necessary to change some things in the code …and i don’t know where is it ! Never mind….I ‘ll only used horizontal images. I have a third question, as i’m photographer and will add often photos on the blog, i wonder if later or sooner the website may be slow ? My photos are optmized for the web, 900px in large and about 150ko as weight.

SwiftIdeas

The blog only shows a certain amount of items (you choose) then you can load more using the load more button. This stops the site from loading all at once and becoming slow. You shouldn’t have any issues :)

- Ed

Default-user

I thank you for your answer, but I ‘m not sure to understand evrything :). I use ” Article” for the blog and “images” or “portfolio” inside “article” to display images. I just wonder if later my website may be slow because lots of images so i wonder if I have or not to use an external blog to don’t make heavy my FTP weight. What do you think about ? :)

SwiftIdeas

As long as you have the web space for the photographs, then there shouldn’t be an issue at all :)

Thanks for providing us with this beautiful theme, Ed! It is by far the most clean and practical layout I have seen on this site. I am however struggling to get my blog page to show posts in the “masonry” layout. My “Page Attributes” under “Edit Page” thus far indicates that I am using the “Blog” template. Should I be using a different template? Please advise.

Hi Matej,

Unfortunately not as standard, you would need to make this change with custom css/html.

Hello, We love the portfolio functionality and are looking to purchase this theme, but are looking to do some customizing to it, so I have a couple questions:

1. How much work would it be to adjust the default width to 1000px

2. would it be difficult to remove the sticky footer and add it to the bottom of the pages.

3. On the portfolio page, is it possible to add a button that under the port thumbs with the load more vs the + icon you currently have in the sticky footer.

Thanks in advance

SwiftIdeas

Hi there!

1. Do you mean of the standard pages, or of the portfolio grid? 2. No, this would be a simple css change. 3. Sure, this is easily editable in the footer.php file.

Hope that helps!

1. we are speaking of just extending the layout of the pages to 1000px, not the portfolio or blog pages

We use this framework – http://www.getskeleton.com/
