Hi..but the contact form doesnt work right?

visualkicks

Sure it works. In my experience if a contact form isn’t working it’s on your hosting providers end. You should check with them and see if they are blocking access to send.php. Jesse

Love the theme. One question, is there any easy way to reorder portfolio post? I’m use to an order #, but I don’t see it. Is the only way to reorder by changing the date/time?

Thanks!

visualkicks

Correct, the best way to reorder your posts is by changing the date published. Heres a plugin that might be more for you – https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-types-order/

Hello Jesse,

I would like to know if it would be possible to put image captions above the image? I mean really above and not over the image.

Thanks a lot in advance! Sophie.

visualkicks

Well, you can place them below (by changing it in the customiser). Then perhaps using some custom CSS you could somehow float the captions left and the image right. OR change the absolute position with CSS. Then again, that might cause a lot of problems. I would recommend speaking to a developer to get this done.

Hi there,

Nice theme!

2. Is it possible to mix portfolio and blog posts on home page (grid)?

Thanks!

visualkicks

No sorry that is not possible. You will need to create or have a developer create a new listing page template that combines both post types in one query loop. Jesse

Jesse,

Looks like there isn’t a way to edit the nav menu font styles in the customizer. Could you point me to the correct style sheet to edit this? I see it in the compressed-styles.css, but when I change “inherit” to something like baskerville I don’t see it reflected. I wanted to ask you before I tried something else, didn’t want to run into conflicts with fontawesome, if that’s even something I should be editing as well.

Thanks!

visualkicks

HI there, it’s not advisable to edit the compress-style.css because it means you have to do it every time there is a theme update (also it’s a compressed version of all the stylesheets).

You should use custom CSS to target the menu and change it’s font. You can add your own custom CSS in the customizer by clicking the CSS button. Off the top of my head you should be able to target the menu like so (if not just right click inspect element in google chrome).

.menu-wrap li {}

Jesse

That make sense, I’ll be sure to leave the compressed stylesheet alone. The custom CSS worked, thanks!

For anyone wondering how:

.menu-wrap li { list-style: none; font-family: baskerville; font-weight: inherit; font-size: 11pt; line-height: inherit; -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased; }

Another question – is there an easier way to add baskerville, or other supported fonts, to my font list for headerstyles so I don’t have to customize through css?

visualkicks
1) To make it a bit easier to read, you don’t need all the other stuff that is already in the stylesheet, you would just be doubling up :)
.menu-wrap li { font-family: baskerville; }

2) If you mean adding new fonts to the font list in the customizer, the simple answer is no. The list is generated on the fly using php, so you would need to edit framework files.

Changing header styles is pretty easy with custom css..
h1 { font-family: baskerville;}

Also most online font service give you the option of hosting the font so you can just use @import (url) in css. Or there is @fontface – http://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/using-font-face/

Great, thanks Jesse. I find myself not using a lot of the fonts and wanted to add/remove, but no biggie, I’ll give fontface a try.

Hello,

I need help. I can’t install the theme because it seems to be incomplete. It says that there is no style sheet and the theme is damaged… (Sorry for my english, I’m french. I hope you’ll understand my problem.)

visualkicks

If you haven’t already solved this please see the post by envato regarding how to fix this. http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/how-to-fix-broken-themestylesheet-missing-wordpress-theme-issues/23755

The reason it occurs is because you are installing the theme incorrectly (not unzipping the file or trying to install the wrong file).

Hi Jesse,

One question, I lost my Visualkicks shortcode botton.

I have the latest version of the theme and Wordpress and I have disabled all my 3rd party plugins. Can you help my?

Cheers.

visualkicks

After installing the latest version of the theme it will prompt you to install the latest plugin. The docs has a little section at the end in regards to updating plugins – http://docs.visualkicks.com/crush/#update-plugins

If you dismissed the notice, then you still have old plugins installed. Easiest solution if you’re unsure, delete your visualkicks plugins and you will be re-prompted to install the latest plugins.

Hi,

What options would you suggest to make a multilngual (english and native) website?

visualkicks

Hi, You’ll need to use a 3rd party plugin like WPML or follow the codex on how to translate your site http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress

Guys, thanks a lot for such a great theme!

I am a photographer and sometimes I need to upload about 100 photos. And as you understand hand-sorting hundreds of photos is not a good option :) Is it possible to make gallery uploader sort photos by filenames by default? Cause now they are sorted quite random.

Thanks again!

visualkicks

Hi there,

WordPress does not include any function that would make that process easier for you sorry. Im sure there is a plugin that could help you sort them easier though – https://wordpress.org/plugins/

I will say this, post galleries (slideshow or stacked) require the images to be uploaded to (or attached to) your post. So if you are just bulk uploading your photos for all your portfolio posts, thats not a really good idea as you would have to go back and then attach them to posts. I recently helped my friend who is a photographer finish his site, it took about an hour for us to do a few hundred images in the order he wanted for about 15 posts.

hi. I have just installed your great theme. Please can you tell me how I install the custom versions of the theme…such as ‘minimal and fullscreen’. I hope you can help as I can only see the basic theme at the moment. thanks. Ben

visualkicks

Hi, as per the docs – http://docs.visualkicks.com/crush/#customize-demo – there are no ‘versions’ of the theme. Just different variations of settings in the customiser. The demos are simply examples of whats possible. If you want to copy those settings you can see all of them by going to your demo of choice and clicking “test drive”. Then just copy them one for on to your site.

Hello Jesse,

I have a problem with my images thumbnails in hover state in Firefox. In the theme settings, I put a yellow background, opacity 1 and black text. But in Firefox, the yellow background works fine while the black font doesn’t appear. Could you help me please?

See the link of the website here: Link

visualkicks

Hi, I checked out your site in firefox and safari but it looks identical. It might be a version specific problem. Could you tell me what version and what operating system?

Im not sure if it’s because im in another country but the site loaded kind of slow. You should add file compression and caching to your .htaccess file.

Hey Jesse, I’m trying to insert a slideshow gallery in my portfolio, and have two questions:

1. in a blog post page, the “slider” option works fine, but not on a portfolio page, where it behaves as “stacked” (I can see all the pictures stacked, however the gallery arrows are displayed on the last picture—even if they don’t do anything). Is there a known issue with it? What’s the best way to fix this?

2. if not fixable, which slideshow plugin would you recommend working best with Crush?

Thanks! Julien

visualkicks

1) The portfolio page is setup only to show thumbnails and nothing else. So Im not sure how you are getting the slideshow image set to show up on it. However you are doing it though, it probably explains why it doesn’t work. Im interested to know though, so please send a link if you can.

ps. if you mean on a portfolio ‘post’ page, then thats a different story and it sounds like you have a javascript conflict. Remove any 3rd party plugins and test if it starts working.

2) No sorry I don’t have any recommendations, I don’t really use plugins myself.

1) ” if you mean on a portfolio ‘post’ page, then thats a different story and it sounds like you have a javascript conflict.” > yeah, I meant a “post” page. I’ll look into conflicts.

As always, thanks for the fast support.

visualkicks

To check for conflicts (if you use google chrome) right click somewhere on the page and > inspect element > then click console. Anything in red is a conflict (but if you see a error message about can’t find js maps thats ok).

Hi thanks for a great theme! I’m having an issue regarding them thumbnails. When I go to the site trineogsigurd.dk it only loads the first of many thumbs. Then when I begin to scroll down the rest of the images starts to load (apear). Is it me how has messed anything up or do you have a fix for this? So frustrating ;-)

Thanks Best regards Kristoffer

visualkicks

Doesn’t look like anything is broken. All the images load just really slow.

The images that are being used for the thumbnails are not cropped or optimised. Did you install the theme on an old installation with images already uploaded? If so you should find a thumbnail plugin to re-crop the images to the correct sizes needed for crush or delete the thumbnails and re-upload them while using crush.

As for speeding your site up your should try adding some mods to your .htaccess (if you host allows it) and remove any 3rd party plugins that aren’t being used (if any).

hi. I have my settings similar to the fullscreen demo. I want to have a 1280×720 video embed from vimeo as a post which goes across what currently is 4 columns. Please can you advise the easiest way to do this, so just one video post on the homepage. hope you can help. thanks

visualkicks

Hey there, well it depends on what you have as your home page. Is your home page a portfolio template? If so, just add your embed code into the page content area or any other content.

Jesse

Default-user

I want my homepage to be the 1280×720 video, for now this is the only post I want. how do I check that my homepage is a portfolio template? thanks

visualkicks

WordPress does not allow you to set a post as a homepage. If all you want right now on your site is a video, just create a new page and place the embed code in the page content then set that page as your home page in Settings > Reading. If you need it to be precise dimensions you can use custom CSS otherwise the video will remain responsive. Jesse

Default-user

I tried what you said but it does not seem to embed the video for some reason. please can you view below:

if I email you the login for my wordpress would you mind taking a quick look please. thanks again

visualkicks

Hi again, don’t worry about sending your login details, I can see the problem from visiting your page.

You need to change your home page in Settings > Reading and set the new page you created as your home page. As I said above you CANNOT set a post as a homepage, only a page. This is covered in the docs under setup – http://docs.visualkicks.com/crush/#setup-page

Hi again

I’m having an issue with the comment form, that you might be able to help me with (I hope!).

The thing is that you have the same word / code string for the text area (Comment) and the submit button (Comment) in the comment form. This is fine in English, but in Swedish there isn’t one word that suits both functions.

Is there a way to split this into two translatable words, much like the contact form that reads “Message” and “Submit”.

Hi, I just found something that appears to be a bug (?). Maybe you can help with that too:

When I use the search widget the menu disappears on the search results page. I’ve made a workaround on the desktop site so to see this you need to resize the browser to mobile and make a search (try test). Then you will see that the menu on top is gone.

Do you have any idea why this happens and how I can prevent it?

Thanks, again, in advance :)

One more: the prev/next buttons doesn’t show on my portfolio posts. I have ticked the box in the theme settings… ideas?

I did find that my top Background disappeared with this update once I entered into the ‘Customize’ mode. I tried deleteing the BG color to be blank and hit that ‘reset’ arrow button and save…

but it comes up BLACK!

visualkicks

Why not just set the opacity of the color to 0? Let me know. Jesse

Hi!

First of all: congratulations on a great theme.

I have a few questions with regards to some issues I’ve been experiencing. I hope you can help me:

1. How can I add some additional contact information below or next to the contact form under “contact”? I would like to include a few e-mail address and address details.

2. I’ve set up 2 separate portfolio galleries. I’d like to use different title position styles for each of these two galleries. So basically, in portfolio gallery 1, the title position would be BELOW each portfolio image. And in portfolio gallery 2, the title would be HOVERING over each image. How can I adjust that?

3. In the mobile version of the menu: what can I do so that the menu appears straight away once I watch my site on a smartphone, without the user having to ‘open’ the menu first.

Regards, Ben
