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!

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

Gotcha. Thanks again!

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?

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

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

- Ed

mrdigital

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 {

- Ed

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.

- Ed

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

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?

Default-user

already found in previous answers, 220px wide, thanks

SwiftIdeas

No worries :)

- Ed

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

Sorry, try this instead:

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

That will work :)

- Ed

Default-user

Awesome! It did work out.

SwiftIdeas

Great :)

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!

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.

- Ed

Default-user

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?

SwiftIdeas

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

nav .menu {
text-transform: none;
}

- Ed

Default-user

Thank you SO much, Ed!

SwiftIdeas

You’re welcome :)

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

Ahh ok, yes – the filters only support letters.

I’ve used unicode symbols looking like ” so all cool now ;) thanks again, Ed

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,

Gianna

SwiftIdeas

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? :)

Regards, Daan

SwiftIdeas

Hi Daan,

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

- Ed

Beautiful theme!!

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

SwiftIdeas

Hi there!

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

Hope that helps :)

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; }

- Ed

Default-user

Done! Thanks, Ed!

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

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.

ok, I’ll try, thank you

Uploaded images for Portfolio items are resized to 1000×563 by default, how can I change this? I need higher resolution

SwiftIdeas

You can change this in functions.php, line 76:

add_image_size( 'full-width-image', 1000, 563, true);

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

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