Is this theme easy for a beginner to set up on wordpress?

Yes, I think it’s easy. If you have the skills of using wordpress.

Hi, I just purchased this theme and I’m trying to figure out how to set it up on wordpress. I am a complete beginner and it isn’t as easy as I thought! How do I set it up like one of your options so I have a working template, then I can make small changes when I see how it is set up in the wordpress dashbpoard. Thanks

MattMao

Thanks for your purchasing. You should have some skills of using the wordpress. When you active the theme, all the pages and options are ready for you. If you want to do some change, please see the documentation. If you have the issue with the theme, please post the question which you have here.

In the documentation, what is the difference between an Ajax Portfolio (D3-B) and a Non Ajax Portfolio (D3-C)? I want my portfolio pieces to be layed out as you have them with the image, title, and category.

MattMao

1). Ajax Portfolio: Open the item on homepage, Non Ajax Portfolio: Open the item in the single page.

2). Have you added the portfolio items? Show me the page that you have issue.

Hi, When I try and add new images now I get this error message: “BBCiPlayer_UK.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

My image file sizes are all under the stated maxium of 33mb

Hi, this is your hosting issue, not the theme’s, please contact with hosting.

Hi Matt, is there a way to add a video into a portfolio with images? For example in a portfolio slideshow it goes: image / image / video? Thanks

MattMao

Sorry, it does’t support this.

Default-user

Really? Is there a way to get it with a plug in? Having the ability to add a video either by embedding or a link from vimeo or youtube to a portfolio containing images as well is quite important for creatives. For example advertising campaigns would consist of many forms of media including images and video.

MattMao

Sorry, I do not provide support for any 3rd party plugins or rectification of issues occurring from using said 3rd party plugins.

How do you get the thumbnail crop of the image that I make in the media library to show up on the front end website? When I make and save a thumbnail crop in media library, it shows up in the list there, but does not update the crop in the portfolio list and on the website itself?

MattMao

You don’t need to crop the images, it image size has been set in my functions, if you want to change the height, I can tell you where can you change it.

Default-user
Mike410 Purchased

My reason for wanting to crop the images is to make a more visually appealing thumbnail on the site. The automatic thumbnails that are produced are not the best crops visually. How do I change what is shown as a thumbnail on the site?

MattMao

It does’t support to use your cropped image as the thumbnail.

There seems to be a lot of basic portfolio functions that I am discovering, this theme doesn’t support. I would highly suggest looking into adding those as features as almost all portfolio sites such as Behance, Cargo, Carbonmade etc. have these as standard.

1. The ability to add video (link or embed) within a portfolio containing images. This one is extremely important for creative professionals to showcase their work as multiple media formats are generally used within ‘Projects’. I assumed this feature was available as I have not seen it not offered elsewhere. Not being able to add video within a portfolio containing other media severely restricts the work I want to showcase (advertising campaigns).

2. Being able to select what part of the image you want to feature as a thumbnail should be offered as standard. Visual people (who would most likely be customers of a creative portfolio theme) want to be able to choose how their work is presented in all facets – this includes how the thumbnail of an image looks.

I don’t have html knowledge and this is my first time using wordpress. When I purchased the theme I thought these features would be part of the ‘creative portfolio’ package, or at least possible.

This is all intended as constructive feedback and if there is a way for you to add those features in the theme, it would make it highly attractive to all creative professionals and your theme would be that much better for it.

MattMao

Thanks for your advices, but I have no plan to add these in the theme at the moment. Maybe will think about these in the future.

Great template Matt! I’m a little stuck though. I have the short code for the icon boxes but I cannot figure out where in the Theme Settings I’m supposed to put it. I had assumed it would be on the Homepage tab but I do not see a place for it.

MattMao

Hi, if you want to add the icon boxes in the homepage, you should add the code in: Dashboard => Pages => Home

Hi I’m having a problem with the ‘related posts’ showing on the home page. I have one showing, but I’ve tried lots of different approaches to get some others up to no avail. can you help? thanks, theme is great BTW

MattMao

Hi, the related posts just works in the portfolio and blog single page, does’t support to show on homepage.

Default-user
Oh ok. But why is it showing up on the Homepage then with one blog post but no others? look at homepage here www.creativepeterborough.com Also, it is present on your live demo here> http://demo.themerecord.com/coraline/ Have I misunderstood something, what is this function for on the home page and why can it not work on my theme?
MattMao

Sorry, it’s my mistake. I have add the wrong words, it’s the recent news. The related posts just works on the portfolio single page.

Default-user

Ah yes it says ‘related news’, not ‘posts’, on homepage. I said ‘related post’ in the OP. So what’s the difference between Posts and News? Is it Post=portfolio item, News=blog item? So you’re saying that ‘Related News’ (showing blog items) is actually a function on the home page then, as it does show on the demo and my theme version. But I still have the same problem; only one ‘Related News’ item is showing at the bottom of the Homepage on my site and I cannot make any others appear. How can I fix this? I did import my blog posts from Tumblr using the Wordpress import. Could this have caused an issue? thanks for the reply :)

MattMao

1). Recent News Or Recent Posts, it’s just a name, you can set them in the backend: Coraline => Settings => Front Page.

2). I’m not sure I can understand you clearly. I noticed that the recent news (blog posts) are showing on your homepage, so what’s your issue now?

Default-user

The issue is only 1 item shows. I want to show a few blog posts, but only one shows up. I’ve added featured images to posts, given gategories to them and added those category ID’s to the frontpage settings. I’ve made sure the other posts are set the exact same way as the ONE post that does show, but they still do not show. SO the problem is, only ONE shows up. I can’t make ANY others appear. I’m either not doing something right, or there is a bug somewhere?

MattMao

I think there is something wrong with your settings, Please send me a message from my profile page contact form with your wp login information and I’ll get you fixed up:

Default-user

Fixed now. I was setting the Cat ID’s in settings>frontpage using WORDS, when I should have used NUMBERS. As I had only set a few odd posts with a featured image, it just displayed the very first post. Thanks for the help!

I’m having trouble lining up the last of 3 columns on my home page. It’s showing up slightly higher than the first 2 columns. However, on any other page I add 3 columns, they are all aligned. I’ve checked the html code to make sure there were no extra br or hr. Have you seen this happen before?

Thanks.

I have the categories set up but don’t understand how and where to start uploading my images and project information so the images go under the right category. I am NEW and GREEN to WordPress. Any help is Greatly Appreciated!! Thank you Caryn

Hey Matt, quick question.. One of the things I really like about this theme is the Ajax portfolio. I don’t want to have the portfolio on my homepage, but I want to have the Ajax feature on the page titled “Portfolio”. Is there a way to do that?

I tried changing the page’s template to “homepage” and using the “FrontPage” settings in the admin to activate only the portfolio. I also tried changing the template to “full-width” and inserting the ajax portfolio using shortcode, but the alignment and spacing was way off and it also put everything in a white box.

Here’s a LINK to the page.. Thanks in advance!

MattMao

I’m sorry. It does’t support the Ajax Portfolio in the portfolio page, just for homepage.

Hej MattMao.

I have a few questions.

1) I can´t get my LinkedIn link in the header to work.
2) Is it possible to use shortcodes in the homepage template? I am using det template in my ABOUT page.
3) How do I change the dotted line in the top of each page from to lines to one?
4) Where do I change the words skills, client, date text in the portfolio from english to danish?

I love your theme, great work :D Thank´s.

MattMao

1). Please show me your site url.

2). Yes, if you want, you can add your own code(shortcodes or html) in the homepage content.

3). You need to change the image in: coraline/assets/images/dotted-line.png

4). It’s in the file: coraline/single-portfolio.php

Hi Matt, We’re working with the very nice and fine Coraline Theme at the moment. See here: http://attakweb.com/type

We were wondering is there: 1. A possibility to add tags to portfolios? Or add categories to portfolios and show them in a list under a parent? We want to add tags with year, type of font, raw, clean, monospace etc etc. 2. Is there a css trick to glue the footer to the bottom. Now it floats half way the screen when there’s not enough content. As here: http://attakweb.com/type/portfolio-item/bd-sirca/ can’t figure out where to code the footer to the bottom.

Thanks a lot for your time! very much appreciated.

MattMao

Thanks! When you ask question here, please notice that: I do not provide customization services for any functionality not already provided within my themes/files.

1). It does’t support tags for the portfolio at the moment, yes you can add the categories to the portfolio.

2). No, there is not the css code for the feature.

Hi, Matt

When I navigate the site and choose a job that is in the home, it opens in the portfolio, showing the details, but in my layout does not appear the X button to close it (right and above) as it appears on your live preview.

How can I enable it?

My site: www.valeriavalle.com.br

Thank you

MattMao

You should set it in the theme options: Dashboard => Coraline => Settings => Frontpage => Ajax Portfolo / Portfolio => Enable Portfolio => Yes.

Default-user

Hi, Matt, I think I dont explained it well. I need to put the X button to close the itens of the portfolio.

In this image you will understand it better. Take a look:

Thanks!

MattMao

The ajax portfolio just works on homepage, you should set it as above I have told you.

Default-user

The portfolio is enabled but the X does not appeared! I have to click “HOME” to close it, or in the arrow to go to the next work.

http://valeriavalle.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/matt2.jpg
MattMao

I think you have added your custom content code in the homepage. Please make sure this. If you have done this, you need to change the shortcode.

Ex:

[portfolio column="3" posts_per_page="9" show_title="true" show_skills="true"]

You should use it as:
[ajax_portfolio column="3" posts_per_page="9" show_title="true" show_skills="true"]
Default-user

Sorry, I’m not understanding. :( The code is ok, as above. The portfolio Ajax is appearing normally, at the “home” and and at the “portfolio”, with colums and little images.

What is not appearing is the option of closing the visualization of a single piece of the portfolio. ( a button like a X, on the right top) when I choose to visualize one of the works.

Hi,

I am using this theme and noticed embedded video from You Tube on the home page is not working on my ipad and iphone. I used the iframe code from YouTube.

Also the theme doesn’t look very good on the ipad and iphone. I have “responsive” checked. Go to www.artlicensingla.com. How can I resolve this? Thank you.

MattMao

Hi, the theme does’t support to add the iframe code on the homepage on responsive. If you need, you should add the class in the frame:

<iframe class="video"

Hello Matt!

I am using the side bar using text widgets. I applied some simple HTML to bold certain words. It shows up right on my “Services” page but not on my “Kind Words” page. Here are the links so you can see. http://calliopedesign.com/services/ and http://calliopedesign.com/kind-words/. What is the best way for me to fix this?

Also, I would like to change some of the bold type color in the side bars as well as in the content area to blue. Where do I apply this change?

Can I have more than 16 images in my portfolio? I used the Ajax short code for 16 images on the Home page but does that limit the Portfolio page to only 16 images?

Thanks so much! Have a good one! Caryn

MattMao

1). You have added the wrong tag for the text “George and Jacqueline” in the content.

2). You can use the style as below:

<strong style="color: #333333;">Your text</strong>

3). You need to set the posts number in the shortcode.

[ajax_portfolio column="4" posts_per_page="16"]

Thank for the style code Matt. I am not sure your reply completely answers my question with the side bars not matching in style on my Services and Kind Words page. The side bar on my Services page is the way I want it to look. What do I need to do to fix the side bar on my Kind Words page to match the side bar on my Services page. I am using the text widget in the Page Sidebar! Thanks!

MattMao

As I told you, in the page content, you have added a wrong tag for the text “George and Jacqueline”. That caused your sidebar text are display as bold.
