Hi

Please add this css code at the bottom of style.css:
#topmenu {
    float: right;
}
#intro {
    text-align: left;
}

Hi Gawibowo,

I am trying to reduce the width of the searchform and I try to change the text in the searchform. I changed both in the css, however it doesn´t update on the website, www.interieurkoning.nl. I added following lines to the style.css code:

cari {

width: 166px; } #searchf { width: 240px; }

I also tried different width, but it won’t change.

Same goes for the searchform name. I changed it, but somehow it doesn’t update on the website.

Any idea why it doesn’t update?

Thanks!

gawibowo

Hi

You need to add the new code below the original code, so it will override the original. Please try adding the code at the bottom of style.css

Hi, I can’t seem to get any social shortcodes to show up in the top bar when entered in the header text box, but plain text shows up fine. Any idea what the problem might be? Thanks

Hi, can you send me a temporary WP admin account of your site so I can check it?

PRE-SALE QUESTION

I would like to be able to have the post title or ”+” sign on the landing page be a hyperlink to another site all together and NOT the individual blog post. Is this possible through the theme or a custom child theme?

Larry

gawibowo

Hi, thanks for your interest in this theme. There is no feature for this in this theme, but it’s possible with a child theme.

Default-user

Can you code the child theme for me? If so, how much would it cost?

gawibowo

Yes, I can do it as a custom work for 1 hour. (My hourly rate is $50/hour)

Default-user

Okay, I’ll buy the theme. How do you want to handle the other $50.00? PayPal?

gawibowo

Yes I accept payment with paypal.

Hi,

Firstly, great theme :)

How would I add social follow buttons to the area above the main nav bar (where the advert usually displays)?

Ideally we would like them aligned with the logo, but aligned right. http://blog.cuckooland.com/

Thanks in advance, Anthony

gawibowo
You can use shortcodes to create social icons. Please delete the banner code first, in header.php at line 54 – 60, and replace it with this code:
<div class="right">
    <?php echo do_shortcode('
        [social type="facebook" url="http://fb.com/"]
        [social type="twitter" url="http://twitter.com/"]
    '); ?>
</div>
Default-user

Hi, I replaced lines 54-60 with the above text but it crashed the site (reloading gave just a blank page). I tried the same with just the code removed (no additions) and the same occurred.

specifically I removed: <?php if (g7_option(‘banner’) && g7_option(‘banner_image’)) : ?> banner

any advice?

Thanks again, Anthony

gawibowo
Hi, you need to delete all codes at line 54 – 60:
                <?php if (g7_option('banner') && g7_option('banner_image')) : ?>
                <div id="top-banner">
                    <a href="<?php echo g7_option('banner_link'); ?>">
                        <img src="<?php echo g7_option('banner_image'); ?>" alt="banner">
                    </a>
                </div>
                <?php endif; ?>
and replace it with the new code.
Default-user

Great, the social icons now appear, thanks.

Unfortunately they do not link to our pages though. We have added:

<?php echo do_shortcode(‘ social type=”facebook” url=”http://fb.com/cuckoolandcom” [social type=”google+” url=”http://plus.google.com”] ‘); ?>

Also, is it possible to change the icons (styling)?

Thanks again for the support Anthony

gawibowo
Oh sorry, the correct attribute for url is “link”, so the code should be:
<div class="right">
    <?php echo do_shortcode('
        [social type="facebook" link="http://fb.com/cuckoolandcom"]
        [social type="twitter" link="http://twitter.com/cuckoolandcom"]
        [social type="google+" link="http://plus.google.com"]
    '); ?>
</div>
For styling, you can only change the icon size to 32px with “size” attribute, for example:
[social type="facebook" link="http://fb.com/cuckoolandcom" size="32"]
To change the icons’ appearance you need to replace the icon files manually in images/social folder.
Default-user

Awesome. Sauce. Thank you :)

Default-user

HI, I have another question in relation to styling on the site.

We have changed the main nav backgroud colour in the style.css file, but would like to change the background colour of the main slider banner to the same.

Where would this be located?

Thanks again

gawibowo

CSS for the slider is located in css/flexslider.css
To change the background you need to edit .flex-caption

Default-user

we have edited the below, but the colout is still black. Would we need to upload a 320px wide image as the background url? What height would we need?

.flex-caption { background-color: #EAEFEF; background: url(../images/slider-bg.png); color: #EAEFEF; position: absolute; right: 0; top: 0; width: 320px; height: 100%;

gawibowo
If you just want to use color (without image) for the background, you can simply delete this line:
background: url(../images/slider-bg.png);
Default-user

double thumbs up. Cheers mate.

Default-user

Hi Gawibowo,

we are having issues with the site loading (this has occurred since installation of the theme – prior to any css updates). It appears that users viewing the site from Chrome are being showed an incomplete page (see screenshot). This happens randomly (we have not yet been able to decipher a pattern), do you have any idea why this may be occuring?

Thanks again, Your support is appreciated. Cheers Anthony

gawibowo
This is a bug in Chrome affecting some sites too (not only this theme). Please update to the latest Chrome version, or if it still doesn’t work please use this code to fix it:
<script>
jQuery(function($) {
    $('body').hide().show();
});
</script>
Insert this code in footer.php at line 34, after <?php wp_footer(); ?> and before </body>
Default-user

Thanks again, I cant rate the support on this theme highly enough.

Just purchased and loving this theme! But, sorry if this has already been asked: Is there a way to take out the menu bar? Not the top bar, but the bar below that?

gawibowo

Hi, thanks for your purchase. There is no option to disable this in the admin, but you can delete it manually in header.php file, delete line 67-73

Default-user

Thanks so much for the quick reply. I had a few more questions. My apologies if they have already been asked:

1. How can I choose the grid or masonry format for the posts on the homepage? I know that the layout option is available when adding new pages. But, the posts on the homepage appears to be in a post list format.

2. Is there a way to create a page (ie: Video) and have that page display all posts with the category “Video” in a grid or masonry format? I have been reading guide, but does not appear to be clear in detail about that.

3. How to change the colors of the gray menu bar?

Thank you very much for your help.

gawibowo

1) You need to create a page with grid or masonry template and then set the page as a homepage. Go to Settings » Reading. On Front page displays, choose A static page and select the page you just created.

2) Yes. Create a page with grid/masonry template and choose “Video” category from the meta box (below the content editor)

3) You mean the main menu? Please add this css code at the bottom of style.css to change the color:
#mainnav {
    background: #555;
}
change #555 with your new color
Default-user

Thanks again! I just wanted to ask another question about #1. Is there a way to set the “main page” homepage with a grid or masonry template? The reason I ask is because (as you instructed) I created a new page called “Home”, set to grid template, and changed the static page to the page I created. But, now there are two “Home” pages in the menu.

If I can’t set the “main page” homepage with a grid or masonry template, can I delete the “main page?”

OR

If I can set the “main page” homepage with a grid or masonry template, how can I change the name “Home?” I would like to change it to something else.

I hope this was not too confusing. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

gawibowo

I suggest you to create a menu from Appearance -> Menus. By creating a menu, you can easily add, delete and reorder the menu items. Please read the documentation about Menus.

Formatting issues with IE11

Love this theme but when an post is clicked and then the home button clicked all of the post are squashed up together. There is writing over each other.. Is this a known issue and is there a fix?

gawibowo

I’m sorry, I haven’t tested this theme with IE11. Please allow me a few days to check it and I will get back to you.

gawibowo

Hi, is there a specific page when this problem appear? And can you send me a screenshot? I have checked my theme with IE11 but didn’t find the problem.

Hi- I am having a problem with custom sidebars not appearing – is there a limit on how many? The site is French and English. No problems with a set of custom “French” sidebars, but when I create the equivalent “English” versions and go to select in the page, they are available in the page menu, but do not display – just blank sidebar.

gawibowo

Hi, could you please send me your login info so I can check it?

Default-user

I have created a login for you – is there an email I can send to – don’t want to post in public forum

Default-user
sent login to your email. for example, go to http://staging.ponabana.com/?page_id=3357&lang=en and it is not calling the requested custom sidebar
gawibowo

The page in your link uses “Water & Sanitation” sidebar but it doesn’t have widgets in it?

\\

Default-user

this is part of the problem – i assign widgets then they dissappear. I create sidebar normally, assign it to page, then when I go back to widgets it is empty.

Default-user

sent you a private message – I changed the custom sidebar title to be all lowercase letters (previously upper and lowercase) and now it is working…..

Hi, before to buy the “Compass” theme I have a question: in some way I need to provide in the website an advanced filtering system, in order to let the reader select posts using a combination of different categories. For this pourpose, I plan to use a plugin, like “ultimate wp query search filter”, or other equivalent, placed in a sidebar. Do you think this is possible? Do you have any suggestion? Thanks in advance

gawibowo

Hi, I haven’t tried the plugin, but if it’s just to add filter for searching I think it’s possible.

Hi sir, do you have any plan to upgrade for the version 3.9 of Wordpress? Unfortunately I have upgraded Wordpress and now I find several bug or strange behaviour. Thanks for your answer.

gawibowo

I just tried WP 3.9, but the theme has not been thoroughly tested yet. What problems/bugs do you have with WP 3.9 ?

Hi and thanks for the promp answer. First, let me specify that I am using Chrome on Windows AND the ipad. The most evident problem is with masonry, both for post and categories: all the blocks are positioned in the upper left corner, every one on top of the others. Also strange is, when I edit the page, in admin mode, it doesn’t ask me anymore about how many columns I want… like to say that the panel to enter column number disappeared. Sometimes, it loose settings: fields I entered before disappear I would be happy to show you the site; we could talk more on skype at your convenience (my skype name is “pmbosio”) Thanks

gawibowo

For masonry problem, there is a quick fix. Please edit functions.php and go to line 143:

wp_enqueue_script('masonry', PARENT_URL . '/js/jquery.masonry.min.js', array('jquery'), false, true);
change 'masonry' to 'masonry2', so it will become like this:

wp_enqueue_script('masonry2', PARENT_URL . '/js/jquery.masonry.min.js', array('jquery'), false, true);

For the problem in the edit page, please check if the options are hidden. Go to “Screen Options” in top right of the edit page screen and make sure Masonry Options, Grid Options, etc are checked.

If the problems still exist, please send me your url and login info via my contact form, so I can check it directly.

HI,

I would like to change the font of the text appearing in the main banner of the homepage. Could you advise where we would do this/what we would need to change?

Thanks Anthony

gawibowo

You mean in the slider? And which text do you want to change? the title or description?

Default-user

Yes, the slider…and the Title please.

gawibowo
To change the title, you can use this selector: .flexslider .flex-caption h2, for example:
.flexslider .flex-caption h2 {
    font-family: Arial;
}
Add this css code at the bottom of your style.css
Default-user

Thanks. I have tried to add different fonts eg) Verdana, but it still appears to display in the Arial font. Any ideas why?

gawibowo

Do you have a live url that I can check?

Thank you so much for posting (in reply to @pmbosio yesterday) that quick fix for the mess Wordpress 3.9 upgrade made of the masonry pages. I had a great panic this morning, when I upgraded WP and found my site all messed up!! With the change of one line in functions.php, now all is well again. :) Just wanted to express my appreciation for your excellent support of the Compasso Masonry theme.

Hey,

I don’t know if this is so much a theme query – but there’s a problem that’s cropped up with my website, http://whatspeenseen.co.uk, on the homepage only and I wondered if you might be able to help? Is it a WordPress fault? Any help would be hugely appreciated.

gawibowo

Hi, this is a problem with WP 3.9 and I’m working on an update to fix this.

You can fix this by editing functions.php at line 143:

wp_enqueue_script('masonry', PARENT_URL . '/js/jquery.masonry.min.js', array('jquery'), false, true);

change ‘masonry’ to ‘masonry2’, so it will become like this:

wp_enqueue_script('masonry2', PARENT_URL . '/js/jquery.masonry.min.js', array('jquery'), false, true);
