Just purchased the theme and I really like it so far. A bit different way to setup my homepage that I’m used to but I think it’s getting there…

I’ve added the ‘featured’ tag to a few posts, and the slider is enabled, but it’s not showing up on my homepage. Thoughts? Is there a way to make the slider look to whether or not a post is “sticky” instead?

Also my ‘home’ page does not show any sidebars. I found the option hidden when editing the page under options, but even if I set the options and update some weird stuff happens. First, the sidebar never appears, and although the options for Masonry, List, Grid are all still checked…they do not show on the Edit page screen unless I uncheck and recheck them.

Thank you!

1. Please make sure that the post has a featured image. If the featured image is not found, the post will not show up in the slider. To use sticky posts for the slider, please edit slider.php file at line 9:
'tag_slug__in' => $tags
change it to this:
'post__in' => get_option('sticky_posts')

2. Masonry type layouts currently only support full width layout (sidebar not supported). That’s why the Layout Options meta box dissapear when you choose Masonry or Categories Masonry page template.

I have created 3 different custom sidebars under the “theme options”. But after I’ve updated the sidebar in the “widgets” area, it does not change in my site, it still shows the default sidebar no matter which is selected thanks

I can’t adjust the layout on my Home page so my posts just appear in ‘List’ view … ??

gawibowo

Hi wbutcher, thanks for your purchase.

To change the homepage layout, you need to create a page first. And then Go to Settings » Reading, on Front page displays, choose A static page and select the page you just created from the front page dropdown and click Save button.

Thanks a lot for that, Gawibowo. I’m enjoying getting to know this theme.

So, when I take those steps, does that mean that the newly created page becomes my ‘Home Page’?

One more quick question: how do I add the right banner/margin to Slide images at the top of the page?

gawibowo

Yes, after those steps your newly created page becomes your home page.

Do you mean the top right banner image next to the logo? You can add the image from Appearance » Themes Options » Header » Banner Image.

Thanks very much for that information but I didn’t explain my last question very well.

I notice that on your live example site you have an image slider at the top of the page. On the right hand side of the sliding images there is Excerpt text, Category information, etc.

How do you set all of that up?

gawibowo

The slider displays posts with a user defined tags. Default tag is “featured”, so when you add a post with that tag, it will automatically show up in the slider with its featured image, category and excerpt.

Hello,

Can the navigation menu color be changed? Also, is it possible to change the font?

Thank you!

gawibowo

The color can be changed via theme options. In the navigation, it will only affect the active menu item and the search button.

To change the font, you need to add via css, for example:
#mainmenu {
    font: 13px Arial;
}

Fantastic theme. All is good but I’ve some questions. My blog is at http://blog.shift.it

1 – I’d like that in the standard view all the post is shown and not only an excerpt. How can I do that?

2 – In the post should always be present the share icons that now appears only in the single page view.

3 – It’s possible to have also a Google+ share button?

4 – I’ve translated some items with poedit but the strings appears in english and not in italian.

5 – All my images are not in the featured image field. How can I move them there if possible?

Thanks!!

gawibowo
  1. You can change that in content-grid.php at line 50, replace this code:
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    with this:
    <?php global $column; if (is_page_template('page-grid.php') && $column == 1) : ?>
        <?php the_content(); ?>
    <?php else : ?>
        <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
  2. I will send you the edited content-grid.php file with share buttons via email
  3. OK I will add google+ share button for the next update.
  4. What strings cannot be translated? All of them or just some items?
  5. You can try this plugin to generate featured images: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/auto-featured-image/
Default-user

Thanks! Problem is that in this article

http://blog.shift.it/2013/02/19/usare-mega-per-trasferire-grossi-files/

I’ve inserted a Read More tag so that the long article is splitted, but if you go there

http://blog.shift.it/page/3/

you’ll see that the article is not splitted and there’s no read more.

In the prevoius theme I was used to see all the article unless I decided to split and inserted a Read More tag.

Also I’m noted that WP-Pagenavi does not work anymore and that the nrelated plugin I’ve used for related articles doesn’t show up in the main page but only in the single post page. I’d like to be shown also in the main page.

Solved the URL rewrite problem using another plugin…

Default-user

As for the translation, I’ve done the translations in .po file but they simply doesn’t appear on the site, neither string…

gawibowo

I haven’t try WP-Pagenavi yet. Maybe later. If I can fix the problem I will let you know.

For the translation, please follow these steps:
  1. Copy default.po into it_IT.po
  2. Edit the it_IT.po with Poedit and add translations in this file. After this file saved, it should generate it_IT.mo file
  3. Open wp-config.php and edit the WPLANG definition into:
    define('WPLANG', 'it_IT');
Default-user

Now the translation work. Doesn’t work the other patch you suggested for the read more…

Hi, Gatot! Thank you very much for your great theme. I like it very much.

Can I ask you about some issues I have noticed while use the theme:

1. If comments was disabled in page settings, an empty and visible box appeared in place of comments. See at the bottom of page: http://www.jyoti.ru/horoscope/author

2. Some text of the theme can’t be translated and hardcoded. For example: ‘Home’ in breadcrumbs, ‘Search…’ in the search field, ‘Latest’ ‘Popular’ ‘Tags’ in Box widget and others. I do translation into Russian.

3. I can’t get ‘home’ icon in the main menu. Don’t know, why it is not work. Your answer and screen shot in the above question did’t help me http://i.imgur.com/SxzVYYl.png

4. In your Custom Recent Comments widget I get wrong formatting – text is in the bottom of the user pic. See here in the sidebar: http://www.jyoti.ru/practice/23

gawibowo
Hi ram108, Thanks for your purchase.
  1. Please open comments.php file at line 47, and delete this code:
     && ! is_page()
    I will also delete this in the next theme update.
  2. Thanks for this info. I will fix this in the next update.
  3. I just realize that it won’t work if we already set a static page as a front page.
    You can either disable your static page and add “home” again from Pages » View All
    or
    add a custom link and set the css class with menu-item-home
    http://i.imgur.com/Z4rit6e.png
  4. I already fixed this and I’ll update the theme ASAP. Meanwhile you can fix it for yourself by adding this code in css:
    .widget_g7_comments .avatar {
        float: left;
    }

1. I have done it but got unnecessary notice on the page (“closed comments”). Is it possible to have clean pages without comments and notices?

3. First method didn’t help for me but the second with CSS `menu-item-home` is OK.

I noticed also that if to make a page with url `sitemap` – a built-in sitemap will appear on the page even without `sitemap template` selected in the page settings.

Thanks for the fast reply! Every your answer was very helpful for me.

BUG: In ‘Categories Masonry’ themplate if an added category have no posts it will come ‘_’ – just line on the page. See here http://savepic.ru/4257872.png and here http://savepic.ru/4213840.png

Edit page.php file at line 9-11, change with this code:
<?php if (comments_open()) : ?>
<div class="box">
    <?php comments_template(); ?>
</div>
<?php endif; ?>
And thanks for the bug report, will fix that in the next update.

I would like to remove the ‘by “Author”’ line from all posts sitewide. Where can I find the code to do that?

And secondly, is it possible to insert an author name in to each post without said author being a user on WordPress? For instance, if I am pulling news stories from other sites with a multitude of authors, is there an easy way to credit them on a post by post basis in the Author field? (I’m thinking the answer to this is no, which is why I asked the first question :) )

Thanks for the theme … awesome stuff.

gawibowo
Hi nichoeleo, thanks for your purchase.
  1. You mean the author info in the single post view? Yes you can delete that in content-single.php file at line 18-19.
  2. To insert a custom field for author, you can use WordPress custom fields. Maybe this will help you: http://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Fields

Question about the CDN. I’m using another domain to get the images of my blog and I’m using W3 total cache to manage the CDN and upload automatically the files to the CDN.

problem is that when I upload an Image that one is saved in different format as

galaxyaltius-420×189.jpg galaxyaltius-420×250.jpg galaxyaltius-460×207.jpg galaxyaltius-420×280.jpg galaxyaltius-45×45.jpg galaxyaltius-480×216.jpg galaxyaltius-150×150.jpg

but not all the thumbs are created at the same moment. I’ve checked using FTP and it seems that some other format were created as soon as the user choose another format of blog visualization.

Problem is that the upload system of W3 does not handle automatically the new format created but upload only the ones created as I upload the image.

Don’t know is this depends of the template but should not be possible to create all the images format at the upload stage so that W3 upload them on the CDN in this moment?

gawibowo
Not all images are generated when uploaded (to save disk space). If you want to generate all images automatically, please add this code in functions.php at line 122 (below this code: add_theme_support('post-thumbnails');)
add_image_size('thumbnail1', 45, 45, true);
add_image_size('thumbnail2', 150, 150, true);
add_image_size('thumbnail3', 420, 250, true);
add_image_size('thumbnail4', 420, 300, true);
add_image_size('thumbnail5', 420, 9999, false);
add_image_size('thumbnail6', 460, 9999, false);
add_image_size('slider', 620, 350, true);
add_image_size('single-image', 900, 450, true);

Can I make a suggestion for ‘Categories Masonry’ template. I like this view best of all.

I have many categories in site and I want them all to be appeared at the site. It can be very useful to allow ‘ALL CATEGORIES’ to show (not to choose manually).

And you can sort those categories by last post in it. For example, if I made a post into old category, it will come first in the list. :)

gawibowo

Thanks for your suggestion, I think this is a great idea. I will add this to the list of new features, maybe for the second or third theme update. Right now I am working on the first update.

One more suggestion is to add more widget areas to the theme:

In Topbar, Header (instead of banner – every one can use ad-rotation widget or text widget), after post (to put ads, links, flikr) and so on…

:)

Thanks, I will consider adding this in future updates

I really like the small social media icons on the top menu at the right hand side – can you advise on how to achieve this? Loving the theme!

gawibowo
You can add that with social icons shortcodes, for example:
[social type="facebook" link="http://facebook.com/yourname"]
[social type="twitter" link="http://twitter.com/yourname"]
[social type="flickr" link="http://flickr.com/photos/yourname"]

Hi gawibowo,

Nice theme!

Having set my homepage as a grid template, I would like to write some text on the page, below the slider and above the grid – an introduction to my site.

I’ve tried writing something on the page, but it doesn’t appear when it is set to the homepage.

How can I do this? Can’t seem to figure it out.

Many thanks!

gawibowo
In the homepage, the page title and content are hidden automatically. If you want to show them, please open page-grid.php file, at line 78 – 82 you will find this code:
    <?php if (!is_front_page()) : ?>
        <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
            <?php get_template_part('content', 'page'); ?>
        <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
change it with this:
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
        <?php get_template_part('content', 'page'); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

Works perfectly, thank you!

Regarding the ratings system, I have a few questions / observations:

1) How do I change the ratings to stars? At the moment, it’s just showing numbers.

2) Have you any plans to add meta data to the ratings so that Google displays them as rich snippets? I think this would be a great addition as it increases click through rates.

3) I notice that your documentation mentions a ratings section under theme options, however, this section doesn’t appear to exist?

4) When creating a post and adding a rating, you cannot use the slider on the added ratings until you save the post as a draft. Not a biggie but just thought I’d mention it.

Many thanks again!

gawibowo
  1. The ratings in the admin shown as numbers, but in the public (single post view) the ratings should be automatically converted to star images
  2. I will research this and if it can be implemented easily, it will be added in the future update
  3. The ratings section in Theme Options is actually just 1 option to enable/disable, so I moved that to Posts section. Sorry I forgot to delete the ratings section in the documentation
  4. This is a bug on the javascript. Thanks for your report, it will be fixed ASAP
Default-user

Hi gawibowo,

Thanks for your reply.

Regarding the first point, I’m afraid the ratings show as numbers in all views, single post, grid and slider, not just in admin.

I have tried logging out and clearing cache (using chrome 25) – no luck.

Is there a way to convert these numbers to stars? I need this functionality as my site is review based.

If you want to have a look for yourself you’ll need to give me your IP address as the site is currently locked down under development.

Many thanks.

gawibowo

Oh you activated Compasso Child Theme, right? The child theme shows ratings with numbers instead of stars. You can just delete the function in the compasso-child/functions.php file to enable ratings with stars.

Default-user

Yes, I’m using the child theme.

I’ve deleted functions.php and its working perfectly, thank you.

Like the theme very much. Thank you. I just can’t get the little home icon to show up instead of the word home… what am I missing? Many thanks!

gawibowo

To add a home icon, add a Custom Link to your menu, enter your home URL and set the CSS classes to menu-item-home
here is the screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/Z4rit6e.png
If the CSS classes field doesn’t appear, click on Screen Options on the top right and check the CSS Classes checkbox.

Hi Gawibowo,

Thanks for this great theme. I’m using it on my Turkish animation blog, here: hah-tv.com

I have a little problem. In posts, it compress images horizontally. Especially in mobile it is becoming worse. I can’t find any solution in admin panel. Am i missing something?

And is there any option to auto resize videos?

gawibowo

Hi hahtv

Thanks for purchasing my theme and use it in your blog.

I see your blog uses the grid template with 2 columns and sidebar. For this template, the size of the featured image is set to 420×300, but in your blog you have 500×200 images uploaded. I think that’s why the images look compressed horizontally. You need to upload 420×300 or higher images.

For the videos, sorry there is no option to auto resize. But if you use WordPress auto-embeds for videos you can try this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/responsive-video-embeds/

I’m sorry but I don’t quite understand your question. Can you send me screenshots or demo url for your problem?

For share icons, if you are using grid template, you can insert this code in content-grid.php:
<div class="g7-share">
    <h3><?php _e('Share this post', 'g7theme'); ?></h3>
    <?php g7_share(); ?>
    <div class="clear" />
</div>
