Jesse,

Three questions—

1) I am unable to figure out how to have the filters on the portfolio page listed in alphabetical order.

2) When I go to view my site on my mobile (iPhone) it does not show my uploaded logo that is features on the desktop version.

3) I am in need of two spaces, like the “portfolio” section—one for my publications and another for my photography. I’m currently utilizing the portfolio section for my publications… and would like to have a category under or above it on the menu labeled “gallery”. Is it possible to have such?

Thank you!

1) Thats now been fixed in the up coming patch. 2) Did you remember to upload the retina version of your logo? 3) You can add whatever content you like to the portfolio page. So perhaps you could utilise that space?

Cheers, Jesse

Actually… I suppose I could utilize the blog page as a gallery. Is there some way to put something on the home page/ “posts” page that can span across the entire width? Say to use as a welcome mat… for lack of a better term.

visualkicks

Hmmm, no, but again the patch coming does have a new kind of section called the ‘content banner’. It’s a little hard to explain with just words though :/

If you look at the foundation demo – http://demo.visualkicks.com/crush/foundation/ – the content at the top is just the portfolio page content. You can place whatever you want in it. This isn’t doable on the blog page in the themes current inception.

I’m not sure if this is theme related but I can’t get the embedded mp3 player buttons (play/pause) to display. They work but are hidden. The Crush customize colors also work fine.

Thanks Jesse, it must be to do with my WP installation and/or plugins so.

visualkicks

Yeah it seems to be isolated on your installation. If you do find the problem let me know.

Hi Jesse

Is it possible to have a greyscale filter on the portfolio thumbnails as default, and make that filter disappear on hoover? A reverse of this but with the text still to appear on hover:

Thanks :)

visualkicks

No sorry I do not. If you view the style.css under image hover options you will see the required css to turn something grey. You will need to mess around with those options or create overriding css switching out the hover states. Jesse

Okay, that’s a bit to complicated for me. Will live happily without it though :)

Thanks for the feedback.

Hi, Great theme – one very happy customer.

My site has been up an running now for a couple of months and have just set up a blog, but have a query:

When adding a new post, instead of it saving to siteexample.com/blog/newpost it just sits on the root of the site siteexample.com/newpost

Have I overlooked a setting here?

I’d say its preferable for SEO if all blog posts were located after siteexample/blog/

Thanks in advance

I have permalinks set to ‘post name’ as per your site setup guide.

visualkicks

Ah, actually this is how WordPress does what it does. Those settings are core WordPress settings (see the demos). If you want to change how it works you will need to create a custom rule where all the other permalink settings are (see where it says other). You can find all the relevant information on WordPress.org – http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks

The reason it doesn’t place the page permalink in front is because blog posts are a core post type (and the default). The blog acts differently for a page template like the portfolio as it is used for search results and archives (day, month etc).

Thanks Jesse, understood.

Hi, I am experiencing very slow loads with this theme. Is it loading the full rez files on the home page? Or does the system create smaller files based on your grid size? Also when entering the page for the first time, it will reference the upper left corner image for a few seconds at full screen size but low resolution. It looks like a bug. I can send you a link privately if you would like. Also where does this theme store the metadata for keywords and say the bookmark tab title? Thanks

Hi, Re: W3 Total Cache:

I am Getting this note on the plugin page: >>Either the PHP configuration, web server configuration or a script in the WordPress installation has zlib.output_compression enabled.<<

Do I need to do this? Is this plug in recommended? I am having speed issues. is this supposed to help or could it in fact be part of the problem?

visualkicks

There are plenty of other ways to speed your site up. The theme already compresses the HTML, CSS and Javascript. So the only real ways left are image optimisation and caching, which you add to your .htaccess file.

Heres a .htaccess mod for compression and caching. http://snippi.com/s/bj8pfn4 http://snippi.com/s/3zm8ouh Heres a plugin you can use to add / edit these to your htaccess file within the wordpress dashboard. http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-htaccess-editor/

If this is a little over your head there are a number of articles online that outline step by steps :)

CONTACT FORM; Can the contact form be modified to have more form fields?

Default-user

I hooked up jetPack to see if that Contact Form could work. it has the form fields i need. However there is no “Submit” button (??) as well the form fields are populating with user admin data. Wierd. Like the admin username in the “name” box and the Email address of the Admin. Also need to modify the height of the boxes. is this theme using this jetpack form in some way? And where does one go to modify this design? thanks

visualkicks

No the contact form is completely static and custom made. If you want customised form perhaps use contact form 7?

Hi again :-) Re: Blog Post home page: How do you prevent the images that are placed either in a gallery or statically placed in the document from appearing on the blog “collection” home page? These images i refer to are appearing beneath the blog text, while the “featured Image” sits on top. Isn’t the Featured Image the only image that should be showing on the blog home page?

I think I might have found the answer. Is it….<!-more-> ?

visualkicks

Yes you can change the options in the customiser to either uses WordPress more tag or WordPress excerpt. Cheers, J

Hei, I have a problem with the FEATURE IMAGES of my posts on my “CRUSH-”website. The first 9 posts, which I created 6 months ago, have a rectangular form. All the other posts I add now have a different size and so they go out of the raster. All settings seems to be the same.

Can you suggest me a solution?

Thank you! L.

visualkicks

They are all meant to be square (600px by 600px) but Im guessing the first 9 pots you uploaded went not more then 600px tall. WordPress can’t crop to size if the image you upload isn’t big enough.

So either re-upload your first 9 at sizes larger then 600 by 600 or upload your new ones the same size as the previous ones (not big enough).

This is covered in the documentation here – http://docs.visualkicks.com/crush/#formats-image

Hei Jesse, the images have all the same size (bigger then 600px) and resolution (I tried all combinations), them come all from the same psd.

I re-uploaded the first 9 many times, I tried different jpgs, I created the post again, but nothing happens. oh, now there is a third size.

Did you upload those first images before the theme was activated, because from everything I’m looking at your site they are in no way cropped and a theme cannot go back and re-crop already uploaded images. Take these two for example, look at the image names in the url address, one has 600-600 at the end, meaning the correct image is being used any the other doesn’t. Meaning the other image doesn’t have a 600-600 version in existence on your server.

So, delete the image, and re-upload it so the theme can crop it, OR you can use a re-crop feature image plugin.

Hi

Jesse. I’m a little worried with the translation thing. I was checking the post related to WPML and found out that 7 months a go you where working in it. I need to translate it to spanish and found out that some things are not in the .po and .mo default archives. They are directly into the code, so it’s not even update safe, besides not complying with the WP Codex. Like the submit button in the contact template.

If I´m wrong you can do a little Bodoo man ;(

Could you please give a fixed date for WPML and making it multilanguage update safe.

Thanks

Bigbangthinking

OK OK I deserve my Bodoo man. Lucky me, you are in Japan and not in Brazil.

visualkicks

haha, what is “Bodoo” any way? Don’t get me wrong I make mistakes, so definitely let me know when I do :)

Bigbangthinking

One of those little man that you stick nails into >:(-/<=

J:

How is determined the order filters are shown?

Thanks

visualkicks

At the moment they are in order of posts on page. After patch it will be alphabetically.
