hi,

another question. Why must set the ‘Home’ page as front page?

If I do that, my frontpage will be unindexable.

Anyway I can’t see any difference if i set it or not.

Please tell me if is there’s something that i missed.

Hi,

Are these category summary panels as seen in the Drupal version also included in the WordPress version?

Are there any other widgets to create those category panels. The most popular widget only works when comments are activated.

Sorry no, that’s how it works

Hi there!

I just purchased the theme and installed it for a test. Everything went smooth but instead of seeing the category horizontal menu on top, I get a pages menu (?) I also have the Top left article displaying wrongly. Here is my test site: http://69.195.109.91/

Until now I uploaded the sample data, plugins, etc just like mentioned in the documentation. Can anyone help please?

THANK YOU !!! Paddy

Dear Tina,

I just read today the 239 comments here (woow) but I did build my own FAQ :-) Problems of others are often a great help… Anyway that will nicely complete the documentation :-)

The issue I had with pics resizing was solved when I replaced the “Additional image sizes” plugin for a similar one with “zui” in the end.

I still have one last issue though. It concerns the footer and its “service menu”. I tried to display pages and/or links but nothing displays.(?) I read this whole forum + documentation but honestly cannot understand…

http://69.195.109.91/

THANK YOU and keep up the good work!

THANK YOU very much Tina! Images often talk better than words :-)

I had been mislead by the fact that the main menu just needed an action in the Menu section. Forgot that with the Service Menu it also needed to be be declared as a widget if we wanted to display in the footer.

Thanks again for your help and please keep me on your mailing list if there is any new version or new themes, I will interested. I like Cooolzine, it’s a very original and lively theme that stands out from so many similar (and often boring) magazine style themes. Keep on “inventing” !!!

Cheers! Pat.

Hello Tina,

Just 2 questions please:

1 – I cannot get a Home tab in my horizontal menu on top page. I got the categories alright but no HOME . Still I set the Front page as required in Documentation. Tried to create a Home category but doesn’t work :-( http://69.195.109.91/

2 – I recently saw a “hidden” plugin called “Advanced caching” in a “Drop-ins” section of my plugins and I never actually uploaded it. Is it automatically created by Cooolzine? I already have the HyperCache plugin running, do you think I can delete the advance cache.php file via FTP ? Sorry if this is not related to Cooolzine.

THANK YOU very much for your help!

Cheers

Hey,

1. Edit the top menu and add the ‘home’ menu item

2. There is no such plugin in cooolZine.

So sorry to add another question but is it possible to define a default image thumbnail somewhere? If a post has no attached image then the default image thumb will show up…

Hi Tina!

Well I just added a Custom link to my index page in the Main Menu. I guess that was the right thing to do as it is now working :-)

FEEDBACK : I have been now “playing” with Cooolzine theme for a week and the more I use it, the more I like it :-)
I’m far from being a WP expert but I managed to have everything working smoothly. I like Cooolzine as I am using it as a CMS . I don’t run a blog but a city information website. All the image thumbnails are a bit like postcards and once all data will be uploaded I know it will look great. I guess Cooolzine can also suit a lot of other various domains…
Code is clean and my site passed the W3C validation. It’s nice to see a large green banner with “This document was successfully checked as XHTML 1 .0 Transitional!” :-) Not always the case with other (even premium) themes …
I used Chinese characters in categories and inside posts without any problem. The photos are resizing automatically and this is nice.
Although my site is on a cheap hosting (BlueHost) the response time is quite quick. For information, I use the “Hypercache” plugin. It rocks! I used the WP-ContactForm plugin included with the theme and it works alright but I might use another plugin like Fast Secure Contact Form because it has a Captcha and a few more options. I am currently trying it.
I hope to post a link here in the weeks to come when my site will be on production. Although the official demo site is very nice, it could give even more ideas to newcomers.
Finally thanks to Tina the author who keeps answering regularly here and hope she will keep up with Coolzine because it’s not only a nice theme but a great project. I for sure don’t regret my $30. Really worth it.
Cheers from China!

PS: First time I buy a theme with “ThemeForest” and the whole system including this Comments/Forum is nice. Keep up the good work too!

Hi there,

Is there any way to replace the cut paragraph with an Excerpt if one has been defined in the post’s settings?

Also, is there a way to have the cut off point for text not be in the middle of a word? I.e. it cuts at the end of the last word which fits within the given character limit?

Thanks,

Alex

Hey,

yes, there is a way. Just change the functions cooolzine_boxarticle() and cooolzine_toparticle() in /lib/cooolzine.php for your needs.

Hi Tina,

How does the theme work for SEO ? Its very impressive btw.

Cheers

Hey,

except that the code is clear and valid, there is no special SEO optimization.

@bananaman4u
I guess you know this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/ I do use it with all my Wordpress sites and I’m often on top of Google results :-)

I am still in the process of building a new site with Cooolzine but this is just a theme (interface) so I don’t see any reason (as far as the code is clean and it is) why it should not rank well. As soon as I’ll have it online for good I will put a link in this forum.

In the meanwhile, thanks for the link Tina! I didn’t know this tutorial and it is very well done. Always useful to review things and even if we think we know all of it we always learn a few more tips 8-)

Hi, I bought your theme, it’s excellent and I’m trying to modify it a bit.

Could I kindly ask you if there is any way to show two or more categories on the articles on the homepage? All my articles will have belong to two categories, and I would like to show them both.

For instance, taking the example of the live preview of Coolzine on Themeforest, how can I show for an article the categories “Science” and Business” on the hp?

Hope you understood what I mean :P

Thank you in advance for your help,

S.

Hello Tina,

Under each photo thumbnail is displayed the category except for the top article displaying the slug.
My categories name and slug are a bit different…

Could you please tell me how I could change that?
THANKS ! :-)

Hey,

cooolzine/lib/cooolzine.php

function cooolzine_toparticle() ? change line 43

function cooolzine_boxarticle() ? change line 187

Hey Tina,

THANK you for your quick answer ! 8-) although I might not have been very clear in explaining the situation.

In fact on home(index) page we can see all the image thumbs with their category below and then the small text excerpt…
EXCEPT for the first and larger thumb (Top Article)

The Top article shows the slug NOT the category.

So I opened “cooolzine/lib/cooolzine.php” and compared the code for Top article and Box article. On line 89, I changed like below:

ORIGINAL : “-.$cat[$firstcat]>slug.--
MODIFIED : “-.$cat[$firstcat]>name.--

Not obvious to notice because (like on your demo site) people often use a similar category and slug.

Anyway now it works. :-)

Hope this post can help others (ike me) browsing this forum for tips :superbashfulcute:

Hi,

Again me, hope I am not bothering you too much :P

I have read the documentation, but didn’t find the solution for my problem. A quick explanation:

1) I have set up the “additional image sizes” plugin, sizename “toparticle” as explained in the documentation 2) I have 5 categories in my blog 3) When I post an article in the category “alfa”, I always insert the same image “alfa”, size “toparticle” and “link with post”. The same with the other categories: category “beta” always linked with image “beta”, etc. 4) I end up having duplicated the image alfa, beta, gamma, etc. in my library. If I have 15 articles in the category “alfa”, I get 15 images “alfa1”, “alfa2”, “alfa3”, etc.

This can be annoying as I need only 5 images: alfa, beta, gamma, etc.

Any solution for this issue?

Hey,

You mean the attaching to the post duplicates the image, this is a bug in post2media plugin. Can’t do nothing about it.

Cheers

Default-user

I understand. I deactivated the post2media plugin and tried to insert an image directly into the post. Now I don’t have any more duplicates in the library, but the post doesn’t show the attached image on the homepage…

Even if it is not directly connected to your theme, do you plan to think about a solution for this issue? I mean, it’s quite annoying to get your library full of duplicates and post2media can’t be deactivated without having issues with Cooolzine.

Thank you so much for being always so kind and waiting for your feedback,

S.

bloooming

Yes, I will try to contact the plugin developer.

Default-user

Great, thank you so much!

Hey,

Not a big deal but I realized the category colors option does not work for sub-categories.
Maybe could be listed in the points to check if there is any later updates…

THANKS ! :-)

The colors work for all categories.

Hi Tina,

I post my question here, as it can maybe useful for other Cooolzine users.

I have again issues with the duplicated images in the library because of the post2media plugin. The solution with the “featured image” you suggested works only for one post. If I use the same image for another one, it’s not shown on the homepage.

So, here is my (hopefully last :)) question for you.

In cooolzine.php, how to modify the following lines to get, instead of the image linked to the post, the first image inserted in the post?

///* get first picture *///
$image = get_children( array('post_parent' => $post->ID, 'post_type' => 'attachment', 'post_mime_type' => 'image', 'orderby' => 'menu_order', 'order' => 'ASC') );
$firstimage = key($image);
$src = wp_get_attachment_image_src($image[$firstimage]->ID,'toparticle', false);

Hope I was clear enough and thank you in advance for your help,

S.

bloooming

Hello again.

The solution with the featured image is exactly what you need, because you want one single image per post, and no gallery. So, why is it working only in one post?

I think this documentation site is pretty clear: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails

It is not possible to get the first image inserted into the post, because there is no reference of whatsoever about the INSERTED images, that’s why WordPress came up with the ‘featured image’ functionality. The only way to do that is to play around with regular expressions and search for <img src=....

And as I already mentioned, the duplication of images by the post2media plugin is BY DESIGN , and not a bug.

Cheers

Default-user

Hi, thank you again for your reply. The only problem I have with the featured image is the following.

In a new post, I add an image from my computer and I select the option “Use as feature image”. The new post shows correctly on the homepage, with the picture.

I add now a second new post, using the same picture I just uploaded as featured image. This time no picture is shown on the homepage, only the text of the post. That’s my problem.

Sorry to bother you so much…

bloooming

I just tested this with CooolZine, works without a problem.

Here is what I did:

- added the feature to the theme as described

- modified the two functions cooolzine_toparticle() and cooolzine_boxarticle(), removed the image fetching and used get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID,'topartice') instead
