how would i set my blog as the same layout as the demo. thank you

SwiftIdeas

Create a blog page using the blog template, and make sure you don’t have that page set as the posts page in Settings > Reading.

Hope that helps!

Hi,

Is there a way to have my twitter feed show up automatically on my blog page? It appears that it is possible based on the live preview.

To further add, if there is no way to automatically show my twitter feed, how do I get my tweets to show the same way as the live preview?

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Unfortunately not, the tweets shown in the preview are manually added.

All you need to do is provide the URL to the tweet in a post (make sure it’s not made into a link when you paste it into the editor).

Hi Ed! Currently I have my blog page set in the non-masonry mode, as in my Settings > Readings options are under “static page” with the Front Page set on “Home” (a landing page I created using the default template) and the Posts Page set on “Blog” (a page set in the blog template). I really want to change my Front Page to my blog but every time I try to reconfigure that on my Settings, the blog reverts back to the masonry format. How can I resolve this? Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

You could set the front page to “your latest posts”?

It worked! Now how would I edit this front page under Pages? It’s not under “Home” or “Blog”.

SwiftIdeas

You can’t edit the page as such, what are you looking to change? The page is automatically created by WordPress.

I would like to change the site title since currently it shows up as ”|”. Also I would like to have some leverage over SEO including the Yoast plugin I uploaded recently. Do you think this is possible?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

You can change that in header.php, line 27:

wp_title( '|', true, 'left' );

The Yoast plugin should work without issue! :)

Hi Ed! Sorry to bug you again.

I currently have my blog set up in the “posts” mode (as opposed to masonry) and I have it set up so that you can view the entire post on the blog page (as opposed to preview links that link out to individual posts) with the CSS you have provided me. As of now, the 1) date, 2) add comment option and 3) share options don’t appear until you click on the individual blog post. I was wondering if there was a way to have these three components appear on the blog page, like the following blog: nubbytwiglet.com.

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

No worries.

Unfortunately not, you can only have those on the individual blog post pages.

- Ed

That’s unfortunate. Can you explain to me why this isn’t possible? When we set up the blog page so the entire posts could be seen, it seemed like the components could simply be added in by altering/adding in php commands.

SwiftIdeas

It’s not something that WordPress supports as standard. You could try what’s suggested here though – http://wordpress.org/support/topic/comments-on-blog-page-2

Hello,

I’m trying to import the demo content and it just seems to “stall” during the process and do nothing. Some of the images uploaded but I’m not sure what the problem is. None of the blog posts, pages, or other information is there. Any idea what might be wrong?

Also—-I selected the menu correctly and there appear to be links there, but they’re the same color as the background and do not work the same as in the demo.

Thank you in advance for the help.

SwiftIdeas

For the import issue, try increasing your php limits (or asking your web host to) – http://cl.ly/Mjr1 . There is a lot of content in the import, hence why increased limits are needed.

Can you log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com with a link to your site please so we can see what’s up with the menu?

- Ed

Default-user

Thank you for the quick response!

If you put this in the config file will that do it? I’m sort of learning as I go here…

define(’WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘256M’);

SwiftIdeas

Worth a try. If it doesn’t work then the php method will.

I’ve tested your theme on my site and I’d like to purchase and use it, but i noticed you’re not using featured images for the post thumbnails, and i realllllly don’t feel like editing 400 posts just to add a thumbnail.

I’s it possible to simply edit the code to use featured images as post thumbs?

SwiftIdeas

Hmm.. Can’t really appreciate the fact that you downloaded the theme illegally – but ok!

We are using featured images as a fallback, best of both worlds. It would be easy to change the files to set the default thumbnail type to image too.

- Ed

mrdigital

Understood, i blame the internet though. On a new site i would of just purchased the theme.

On an existing site i needed to test for compatibility issues first. But i shall be purchasing this soon.

SwiftIdeas

Great, let us know if you need anything once bought! :)

Just purchased the theme. Can you tell me which line of code to look for in order to change the default post thumbnail to “image”?

I’m assuming it’d be in functions.php somewhere.

SwiftIdeas

Thanks for the purchase :)

Line 481 in /includes/sf-functions.php, change it from:

} else if ($thumb_type == "image") {

to

} else {

First, this theme is great.

Second – 2 questions. Since I’m using this for a portfolio, I’m using the portfolio as the home page, and only page. Is there a way to password protect the entire site? Also, is there any way besides changing the dates to reorder the portfolio pieces?

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

You can find a plugin to password protect your site here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/password-protected/

Thats the only way to keep the order correct unfortunately, that’s just the way WordPress works!

- Ed

Default-user

thanks for the quick response. In which file would I be able to comment out the date field that shows in the lightbox detail?

SwiftIdeas
.portfolio-details-wrap .date { display:none; }

Add that to the custom css box within theme options.

Hello! If I purchase the theme, are you available for custom mods at extra pay? I am sure I’ll need few upgrades? Thanks.

SwiftIdeas

Unfortunately not, we’d love to offer it but we simply don’t the time!

- Ed

Default-user

ok, I hope I work it our myself, or you’ll assist a bit, if I am stuck. I’ve just started playing with it, very good so far.

SwiftIdeas

Glad you like it! We’re more than happy to provide a few pointers here and there :)

- Ed

Default-user

thank you! well, the first question may seem dumb. It’s quite an issue to fit the logo :) what’s the theme limit for logo? or is there any way to change the logo area?

already found in previous answers, 220px wide, thanks

On the Portfolio Item page, it shows the date with calendar icon under the Portfolio item name, how can I hide it? I don’t need to display any dates at all.

SwiftIdeas
.portfolio-details-wrap .date { display: none; }

Add that to the custom css box within Theme Options. Hope that helps :)

- Ed

Default-user

pasted right into Custom CSS box in Theme Options, nothing changed, the date still shows up

Default-user

I’ve found something about calendar icon and date in single-portfolio.php, erased the string, but it didn’t change it anyway

SwiftIdeas

Sorry, try this instead:

.portfolio-details-wrap .date { display: none!important; }

That will work :)

Hi Ed,

Thanks so much for the theme, it is working out great! I am new to wordpress and have used your demo content as a guide. The one thing that I would like to change is the header and size of the logo that I can use. I see the Clique logo is 260px x 50px, I would ideally like to be able to insert a logo that is 150px in height and would like to adjust the header space accordingly.

Check out www.tommytucker.co.za to see what I mean about the kind of logo I will be using. Would really appreciate your help!

SwiftIdeas

The header space will adjust accordingly, up to a max image width of 220px.

Hope that helps!

- Ed

Default-user

The width of the image isn’t the problem, it is the height. Is there any way to increase the height of the header so that a logo with the height of 150px will fit in it without resizing?

SwiftIdeas

If you upload an image that is 150px tall it will show it without resizing it.

No worries, see what you mean now!

In the main menu all items are capitalised, I don’t want the whole words to be capitalised ( I don’t need CONTACT, I need Contact ) Can you please help, where in CSS or PHP code this may be changed?

Add the following css to the custom css box within theme options:

nav .menu {
text-transform: none;

One more critical issue for me. The portfolio filter.

In my case each portfolio item has multiple categories. But if I choose category 1, not all items, that belong to category 1, would appear.

SwiftIdeas

The filter only filters items that are shown on the page. If you’d like it to filter all your items, you’ll have to set the number of items on the page to be as many as you have or more.

- Ed

Default-user

ok, I’ll work it out, I’ve re-arranged the way it’s ordered, changed the categories, and now it’s fine anyway

SwiftIdeas

Great :)

- Ed

Default-user

Sorry, you didn’t get me. And I understood now that my problem is not solved.

Let’s say I have 10 portfolio items and 5 categories.

Each portfolio item belongs to 3 or 5 categories.

It means, when I select category 1, 2 or 3, I expect some items to repeat, because these items belong to all three categories.

However with Clique Filter script, it doesn’t appear in each catergory, it appears just once in one category.

It’s a problem for me :( Any cure? Thanks.

SwiftIdeas

I’m not sure I understand you.. If you have an item that belongs under multiple categories, then it will show for the different filters.

You can see it on our demo, check App Design, and Interface Design.

- Ed

Default-user

yes, and that’s what I needed… looks like I got bugs because I used quotes sign in the category names..

SwiftIdeas

Ahh ok, yes – the filters only support letters.

Hi Ed!

Thanks so much for your help these past couple of weeks – your time is greatly appreciated! Currently I’m developing a blog to go with my portfolio and I was wondering – how can I add a custom header to the blog page? A simple banner across the top would be sufficient – somewhere along the lines of this: www.janereaction.com

Thanks so much!

SwiftIdeas

You’re very welcome :)

That would require quite a bit of custom work. I’d suggest you try and hire a freelancer if you’re not comfortable doing so yourself. Shouldn’t be more than an hour or two worth of work.

Hi, I purchased your team. I have a question? How I can order the team list? I need to put some person before than others.

Thank you in advance,

Hi Gianna,

You can organise the team members by changing the published date, or installing the Post Types Order plugin. I recommend the first method.

Hey Ed, Lovely theme!

I’ve noticed that if I open an image from your gallery in a new tab, it opens the image with a maximum width of 640px. Is it possible to make them open in full size when I ope them in a new tab? :)

Hi Daan,

Yes that is possible, I can provide the code for you to change that – not a problem :)

Hi, I can modify the code (by myself) to add specific content Between the top menu and the grid in the home page? Thanks in advance, Regards

You could do that yes, you would just need to edit the template-portfolio.php file.

Hi, Ed!

Portfolio Item / Main Detail Options Checked the Full width checkbox to make the images in slider appear fullscreen.

This way the text goes below the fullscreen slider, which is right.

(I have social sharing turned off for now, before I work out how to add more social networks.)

The problem is.

There’s a thin horizontal white line across the whole screen between slider and content below. It doesn’t look good at all. How can I remove this line?

thank you in advance, Ed!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

You can use the following custom css (add to theme options) to remove it:

article.type-portfolio .full-width-wrap { border-bottom: 0; }

Hey Ed, I’m having a little trouble with the Twitter to blog function. I put the url of the tweet into the post content but the twitter box doesn’t appear in the masonry blog with all the other posts. Instead it just shows the Tweet with no box and/or follow button. How can I fix this so that the tweet ends up on the post page a la the demo site?

SwiftIdeas

All you need to do is make sure that you’re posting the tweet URL on it’s own line, and that it’s not embedded as a clickable link. Also make sure that you select the “status” post format. The rest is automatic.

Ed, is there any way to add one more stand-alone portfolio?

SwiftIdeas

Sure. The best way to go about it would be to create two parent portfolio categories, then you can separate them by choosing a different category for each page.

Hope that helps.

Hello…

I have recently bought your Clique theme and want to ask a few questions.

1. Can you tell me how I upload an embed code for a VIMEO video.?

I want to have my videos at a specific dimension; so they are 640×360px. Currently I can only upload a video FULL WIDTH or on the left of the page and is squeezes the video making it the wrong aspect.

2. How do I get rid of the date on pages.?

Hope you can help.

Thanks -Guy

SwiftIdeas

Hey there!

Thanks for the purchase :)

1 – Where are you looking to embed it?

2 – Where do you want to remove it from? Just the portfolio items?

- Ed

Default-user

Thanks for getting back to me.!

I director TV commercials; so I want to embed a number of videos into separate portfolio pages. I have been able to bring a video into a test page as 16:9 but the theme squeezes it and creates a letterbox; making black bars either side; which isn’t right.

How can I embed and show videos 16:9 (unsqueezed) at 640×360px or larger.?

2. Yes. So my videos aren’t dated.

Really hope you can provide some answers.!

Many thanks -Guy

Default-user

p.s. I tried the ‘Embedding 16:9 VIMEO video’ code that I found in one of your earlier posts… but sadly it doesn’t appear to work.

Love the theme and want to make my new website with it; so really hope there is a way to sort this.!

Thanks -Guy

SwiftIdeas

1. Have you selected the full width layout for the portfolio detail (in the meta options)? Or, use the standard display and try this css:

article.type-portfolio.standard-portfolio .media-wrap iframe { max-width: 640px; float: right; }

2. Add the following to the custom css box within theme options:

.portfolio-details-wrap .date { display:none!important; }

- Ed

Default-user

I will double check but I don’t want the videos in portfolio to be FULL WIDTH.

I would like the ability to make them a custom size i.e. 640×360px and have them 16:9 and not letterboxed.

Will try the code now; but where does it need to go in the CSS.?

Thanks -Guy

SwiftIdeas

Add it to the custom css box within theme options.

- Ed

Default-user

Is there no simple fix for the VIMEO video 16:9 issue on the theme.? Do I have to use CSS code.?

-Guy

SwiftIdeas

That is a simple fix, that code will stay when you update the theme. We can’t make the theme ready for every possible user desire, so we have to come as close as we can, then we go out of our way to help people that want it different :)

- Ed

Default-user

Testing the code. If this doesn’t work for whatever reason is there anything else I could try.? Its vital for me to show videos correctly and I really wanna make the theme work. So really appreciate your help.!

Default-user

Will try it and then update the theme; fingers crossed it works.!

Default-user

Thanks for you help.! Will come back to you if it’s no good but hopefully it will be…:)

SwiftIdeas

If not, log a support ticket with a link/login and I’ll see what i can do!

If it doesn’t work I will log a Support ticket. If you can then help that would be fantastic.! Cheers -Guy
