Hi, is there a way to add a link to the notes part of ingredients. Sometimes I want to point the readers to the post that shows how that ingredient is prepared for eg. pumpkin puree. Since the actual ingredient is a tag, I was wondering if we could add the link in notes.

purethemes

Each ingredient is a tag, and you can add description to each tag (wp-admin -> posts -> tag) which will be displayed after visiting ingredients page, so you might use that also, but links in notes section should also work

Thx. I added the description and image to the tag, but it does not show up. I have also set the “Show tooltips” to true. You can take a look at it in the test blog. Credentials are the same as what I gave for the child theme issue. The new tag is “testingtag”.

The post where I have it in is http://cooksjoy.com/test/2012/09/baked-macaroni-and-cheese-mac-and-cheese.html

Hi I can’t access your website, it asks for password

The ticket I had created for child theme crashing in IE-8 has the credentials. The ticket is in http://purethemes.ticksy.com. I have mentioned this .. “You can take a look at it in the test blog. Credentials are the same as what I gave for the child theme issue.”

If you cannot find it, let me know and I will send them to you. Thanks.

I was thinking of changing a few things graphically on the site to personalize it a little. Can I change the following items (list below) and if so, will I encounter any problems down the road when installing updates?

1. Moving the slider section down and making it a bit smaller. 2. Adding a headder. 3. Changing the label in the slider section.

Thank you for your help!

purethemes

You should use Child Theme http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes to avoid any problems with update.

Hi,

is there any way to get a trail version to try it on my site?

purethemes

Hi, Sorry but trial versions aren’t available.

Hi,

Love the theme and support. Anyone that is still considering purchasing, wait no longer.

Now for my question: You mention you are always looking for ways to improve your themes? Here’s an idea I think could set your theme apart from the rest.

How challenging would it be to integrate Ziplist functionality into the theme? Ziplist is a online shopping list and recipe box. Some of the less than stellar cooking themes already have it and I’m thinking it would be a huge (but hopefully simply implemented) ehnahcement. Here’s ziplist’s site. Pretty awesome stuff. http://get.ziplist.com/

Thoughts?

Lenny

P.S. I don’t work for Ziplist. I am just struggling with the gap between my viewers (lifeisnoyoke.com) seeing a recipe and actually getting the ingredients / following the steps.

purethemes

Hi Lenny

I’ll definitely look into this, I’ve got similar suggestion from some other startup based on the same idea, I’ll probably include both in next update :)

Thank you very much!

Hi, my web developer tells me he needs the xml files and the contents of the preview site to make the changes needed to customize the look of the site while retaining the structure. Could you allow that for us and any other purchasers of your design?

Thanks,

Hello, I just finished the site with your theme and it’s awesome. Still I have a question> I made a BLOG page, with “Excerpt loop page” as template and I noticed, there is no older post button on the bottom of the page. Can you please help me to figure this out. Thank you. By the way, here is the link to the site : http://rawveganjoy.ro

Still waiting for an answer. :)

purethemes

Hi

sorry, I don’t know why it’s missing there, you need to edit file template-excerpt.php and after line 65 (there is even comment about pagination) paste this code:
<?php if(function_exists('wp_pagenavi')) : 
         wp_pagenavi(); 
    else:
         if ($wp_query->max_num_pages > 1) : ?>
            <nav id="nav-below" class="navigation">
                <div class="nav-previous"><?php next_posts_link(__('? Older posts', 'purepress')); ?></div>
                <div class="nav-next"><?php previous_posts_link(__('Newer posts ?', 'purepress')); ?></div>
            </nav><!-- #nav-below -->
         <?php endif;
    endif; ?>

Sorry for late answer!

Hi,

Great theme!

Is there a way to view posts from one category on the main page? i.e. if I wanted to display drinks ONLY from the Halloween post Category… It would be nice to be able to do this in widgets in future ….

Thanks

Hi

You can use some plugins for that like Simply Exclude http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simply-exclude/

Why ?

It’s hard to say, if you’ll check you sample post here http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.recette-gateau.com%2Ftarte-tatin%2F&html= it takes all data correctly

Hello purethemes, I’ve a problem with installation of cookingpress theme. I’ve upload my website in localhost to to some tests, I’ve just bought and uploaded the new theme, but when I click to activate it, the answer is: “Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed in C:\Program Files (x86)\EasyPHP-12.1\www\wordpress\wp-content\themes\cookingpress-theme\cookingpress\backend\purepress-functions.php on line 200

What does depend on? What should I do? Thanks in advance Verdiana

purethemes

Hi

That’s strange, this issue was fixed a while ago. I’ll check it, but you need to edit this file cookingpress-theme\cookingpress\backend\purepress-functions.php and replace this function in line 200 with this:

http://snippi.com/s/70s93ye

BTW . you should keep theme in folder wp-content\themes\cookingpress\backend\purepress-functions.php that “cookingpress-theme\” level is not needed and may cause problems

I also tried to upload the theme on my “real” website that is online, but after trying uploading it says that a CSS file is missing!

purethemes

You need to first extract file you’ve downloaded from ThemeForest, theme is inside of it along with documentation, license, and other files. You need to upload only theme folder to your WordPress. This might be helpfull http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/269/0/my-wordpress-theme-isnt-working-what-should-i-do

1. how do i implement this xml file, where to put it? https://dl.dropbox.com/u/354598/cookingpress.wordpress.2012-04-13.xml

2. for hebrew (rtl) support, should i do somthing?

purethemes

Hi

1. wp-admin -> Tools -> Import -> WordPress 2. If you have RTL WordPress it should work from the start, but you should know that not all features might be 100% working on RTL

Hello, this is really a great WPtheme ! Questions: I’m trying to localize this theme in French but it seems that it doesn’t work with functions that returns string from ‘purepress-functions.php’ functions. Am I missing something ? Is it possible to add this feature in a future release ? Thanks

purethemes

There might be some single wordls that I’ve forgot to localize, sorry for that, I’ll try to fix it for next release

Hello… I love this theme. I have used it on colorfulrecipes.com. There is a big dilemma that I cannot figure out. Notice how on the main page, only one post out of 3 has the white torn paper showing up correctly. To be clear, I have applied the torn paper background to every post (all posts). Everything looks ok within the posts when opened. However, only on the home page, only one out of three posts show up with the background. The others don’t have a background. The problem isn’t with specific posts either. The problem is always sequential. If I add a new post now, it will push the others down (obviously) on the main page; and, still then, only one out of 3 posts will have the background shown on the main page.

I hope this makes sense. The site is @ www.colorfulrecipes.com. I’ve been trying to figure this out for days and have no clue what’s causing it.

I’m struggling like crazy with this theme. I can’t get the slider images to appear on the main page at all. Also, when I put in thumbnails in post drop here box, they just open to a new webpage and wont show up on the thumbnail posts either. Please help!!!

purethemes

Just follow documentation, and you should be fine. If you’ll have problems, open private ticket on http://purethemes.ticksy.com/ with admin access to your WordPress

Hello again. I was wondering if there was a way to make the slider show posts in a random order, and not in the order they were posted? Also, could you tell me how I can change the words: ‘Ingredients’ and ‘Instructions’? And maybe how to add a ‘print’ button to just the recipe part? Thanks so much.

purethemes

Hi

change line in coda-slider.php change line 55 to
  $args= array(
                'category__in' => $cat,
                'posts_per_page' => $slide_number,
                'meta_key'    => '_thumbnail_id',,
                'post__not_in' => get_option( 'sticky_posts' ),
                'orderby' => 'rand'
            );

It depends where do you want to change this worlds? And you can’t add print only to recipe part.

Default-user

Hi. Thanks, I want to change the word ‘Ingredients’ to ‘ingredients:’ and ‘Instructions’ to ‘how to:’ on all the recipes on the site, is that possible? I will try the coda-slider code, thanks.

purethemes

You’ll need to open files single.php and loop-single.php and purepress-shortcodes.php and search & replace this words you want, that will be the simplest way to do that.
