Hello,

First, congratulations. Your theme is really great. It’s even quite frustrating as I am used to having some fine tuning to do after implementing a theme, and I don’t have that much with yours.

I have two questions :

- I would like the homepage to appear with the grid and boxes of variable heights, just as in screenshot 1, on the right. I have the grid but all boxes have the same height;

- is it possible to treat differently the content in the boxes and in the posts? I have changed text-align to justify because I prefer within posts but it looked great as it was by default on the homepage.

Thank you for your answers.

(My website is currently offline but is available at koztoujours.fr.

1. Please change your page with Masonry page template for grid with variable heights, and use images with different aspect ratio for each post to achieve the masonry effect.

2. You can automatically set the text align to justify with this css code:
.single .entry-content {
    text-align: justify;
}
This will only affect the content in single post view, your homepage will not be affected.

Hello, I have one other problem : in the navigation bar, I have “Home” and “Accueil” (same as “Home”, in French). “Accueil” is the static page, on which I apply the layout. So I have two links pointing on the homepage.

How do I get rid of one of the two ?

gawibowo

Did you already use Menus (Apprearance -> Menus) to manage links in your navigation bar? If yes, you can simply delete the static page from the menu.

No, I didn’t. I guess there is a simple option, once I have created a menu, in order to affect it to the navigation bar. I’ll try. Thanks.

I know you can change the number of words that the excerpt is set to in functions.php, but is there any way to make it so that you can have excerpts of different lengths?

gawibowo
To change the excerpt length, open content.php (for default list and archive view), content-grid.php (for grid and masonry template), content-category.php (for categories and categories masonry template), or slider.php (for slider) and find this code:
<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
replace it with this:
<?php echo wp_trim_words(get_the_content(), 12, ''); ?>
(change 12 with the number of words)

Hi. Very nice theme. But I got some issue with iPad 2 and iPad 3. Every time a slider picture changes, all the blocks on the page are refreshed. It looks as if I click the refresh button in browser every 3 seconds. The same situation with Safari and Chrome browsers. PC, iPhone 4 works excellent!!! Is it possible to fix it? Thanks Sergey

gawibowo

Hi, I can’t check it on iPad 2/3 right now, but do you see the same issue with the original script (flex slider) ?

gawibowo

I mean when you viewing the flex slider demo here http://flexslider.woothemes.com/ do you see the same issue? because my theme uses that script

Hi there – about to buy but have a question… is it possible to change the star icons at all so the rating to be out of glasses or coins or something?

gawibowo

Yes with a little code editing. If you don’t want to edit the script, you can just replace the star images with other images.

Hello -

Two problems we’ve had implementing the theme (which in general, we love).

First, every post seems to revert to the first date we transferred over files from our old server. We haven’t been able to figure out what this is…and it is the same for new posts and old, even though their published date remains correct inside the edit post area.

Second, text does not seem to wrap around images inserted within the text. Again, no idea what we’re doing wrong, but would really appreciate an assist!

Thanks! www.weepingelvis.com

gawibowo

1. Maybe your date format is wrong? Please check in your admin -> Settings -> General -> Date Format. If you want to use m.d.Y format insert it in the custom box

2. Image alignment will be fixed in the next update, meanwhile please add this css code:
.alignleft {
    display: inline;
    float: left;
    margin: 0 20px 20px 0;
}
.alignright {
    display: inline;
    float: right;
    margin: 0 0 20px 20px;
}
.aligncenter {
    clear: both;
    display: block;
    margin: 0 auto 20px;
}

Love the theme! I’m having some issues changing the color of the text in the preview of a post on the Categories Mason layout. I’ve been able to change all the other text to black from the light grey, but that one area won’t update for me. Any suggestion?

gawibowo
Hi, you mean the excerpt text? Please add this css code:
.post .excerpt {
    color: #000;
}

Yes, where though? I tried adding it in a few different areas of the stylesheet but it had no effect on the look.

gawibowo

You can simply add it at the bottom of style.css

Hello I have problem with Navigation. I want the Main Menu to appear categories rather than pages.

How can i fix this issuse?

Thank you.

Hi, you can add pages or categories into the main menu from admin -> Appearance -> Menus. Please see “Menus” on the theme documentation.

Hi,

I have gone through all the support given on here but I cannot find the answer. I have used the theme on an existing website and I am trying to add the slider. I have made sure the tag matches the “featured” option in the setup and the post also has a featured image set.

However it still doesn’t show up. Can you help?

Many thanks

Hi there – love this theme, so simple yet so powerful. How do I make the logo the whole width of the top part of the site? I don’t want to have an ad up there, just the logo leading into everything…

Additional question… I want to use the same ratings across specific categories so Category 1 has a set of ratings criteria, Category 2 has a different set and category 3 has a different set… how could I template this to stop havint to type them in from scratch each time?

Cheers!

gawibowo

Sorry but this is not possible at the moment. It will require a lot of code modifications.

Ah that’s a shame, would save a LOT of admin…any plans to make this happen? Also what version should we be on? I bought the theme over the weekend but it keeps saying I need to update to version 2.3…

gawibowo

I will consider adding this in future updates. Latest theme version is 1.1. You shouldn’t need to update it until there is a newer version.

Apologies for the third post… in the Categories Masonry layout for the home page, is there a way to get the posts to tile down in three columns if you have three categories? So each column keeps the same category instead of latest one hero’d and the others miniaturised?

gawibowo

Sorry I don’t really understand your question. Can you explain in more detail?

Default-user
GreggyD Purchased

Sure… I have a blog about three subjects, each has been assigned a category… I want to use the categories masonry layout to tile posts for each three down the home page in three columns. Does that make more sense?

gawibowo

OK I get it now, but it is a different type of layout. Masonry layout can’t be used to achieve that.

Default-user
GreggyD Purchased

is there another way to get it to work like that at all?

gawibowo

It is possible by creating a new custom template. If you need it quickly, I can do it as a customization work at an hourly rate.

Default-user

how long do you think it would take and how much in total? Cheers.

gawibowo

My hourly rate is $50/hour. Please contact me via my contact form and let’s talk about the customization in more details. I will estimate how long it will take to complete.

Categories Masonry layout is only for showing posts grouped by category. It can’t be used to show pages.

Hi, I checked your theme folder and found out that you have a strange theme folder structure. Maybe this causes an issue with saving the menus.
Please upload only the compasso folder into your wp-content folder, so your theme directory structure should be like this: wp-content/themes/compasso. And then try to save the menu again from Appearance -> Menus -> Theme Locations -> select from menu dropdowns and click Save

Thnak you.

Hello,

How to disable Category Mannsory Tittle, if this is not posible, can you tell me how to make Category to show like Grid, because they are like List.

Thnx All the best.

gawibowo

You mean the page title? Currently no option to enable/disable title, but the page title will be automatically hidden if set as the homepage. For category and other archive pages, the layouts are always in list format. If you need grid you can create pages with grid template for each category.

Hello,

I just purchased your theme Compasso, but I’m unable to install. There are two issues; one is that the initial download is not a zip file, but just a folder with the information, and two is when I convert the folder to a zip file and attempt to install to wordpress I get an error that I’m missing the style.css within the folder and it will not install.

Thank you for your help.

gawibowo

Hi, Thanks for your purchase.
When you purchase and download the item, you should receive a zip file. You can’t upload this zip file directly into your site. Extract the zip file first, and upload only the compasso folder into your wp-content/themes folder. And then activate the theme from your WP admin.
