Hi!

How do I set the ‘Custom Header’ for blog posts? Can’t find it anywhere

If you go to your demo/showcase web and click ‘blog’ it displays the blog with ‘Company Blog’ in the custom header.

If you then click ‘more’ at one of the blog posts you come to the blog post and there it says ‘portfolio’ in the custom header. How do I set the custom header here?

Regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello Albertov,

Custom captions are only for Pages. For rest of the things like single, archive, author, search, tags, etc. their default titles are used. For category and single post, the top most parent category name is used. You can control the captions only for pages.

Aha, I understand!

If I would like to change that? Where is the code located for that?

Regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello Albertov,

The page titles are called inside header.php within the div with class name page_titles. Modification can be a bit complicated because it will be required to add a field inside post options panel, similar to the one inside page options panel. Once that field is added, it can be checked and called on single posts. Categories and archives will still show default titles because they can not have any exclusive panel.

Hi Saurabh!

Do you know if Cruz is compatible with WPTouch? I have tried the free version of WPTouch but never managed to get it to display my blog-page, it is always empty.

I wonder if it might be related to that you never should set any ‘post page’ in settings. Any info here is appreciated.

Regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello again,

Setting a post page should not cause any issue. By doing so, WordPress populates the page with all available posts. In that case, you should see all posts instead of a blank page. May be it has something to do with iOS specific meta tag. Is the plugin adding any iOS specific meta tag inside header. (You can check that by viewing the source code). It will look like:

<meta name="viewport" content="width = device-width, initial-scale = 1.0, maximum-scale = 1.0" />

You can try be removing that code. I hope it will work. :)

Hi, How do I get rid of the white area around the masthead? http://radiancehwb.com/

Thanks – its CRUZ theme

SaurabhSharma

Hello Teri7,

The white area around the banner is created due to the top and bottom padding of the Logo. This is set from the Theme Options Page. Go to Appearance > Cruz Options > General. Next, set the Logo top margin, and logo bottom margin to 0px.

For navigation, there are currently two menus. Primary and Secondary. In order to make the primary menu centered, secondary menu should be removed. For that, open style.css file and add the following rules at the end of file:

.nav2 { display:none }
.nav1 { width:100%; margin-left:180px }

Adjust 180px according to the proper center alignment. That should work.

Hi, I just updated to the Oct2012 version and can’t seem to get the header in place. I did this: The white area around the banner is created due to the top and bottom padding of the Logo. This is set from the Theme Options Page. Go to Appearance > Cruz Options > General. Next, set the Logo top margin, and logo bottom margin to 0px. But there is still white on the left and under the heading. How do I get rid of this? Thanks! http://radiancehwb.com

SaurabhSharma

Hello Teri7,

I think you have already fixed it. I can see the header banner flush across edges. Kindly let me know if it is not fixed yet.

Is there any chance that you could make this theme responsive? WPTouch is crap!

SaurabhSharma

Hello mate,

The theme uses Cycle and Nivo sliders, and some features that are not easy going for a responsive theme. I will still try if the sliders can be replaced by flexslider and other sections can be made responsive.

Thanks for the theme and all the previous updates.

I need to create a version of “Related Posts” that shows both the thumbnail and entry title (not just “list” or “thumbnails” as the theme offers.)

I’ve tried creating a new/alternate cruz_related_posts function in the child theme functions.php to replace the theme function pulling in related posts in the single.php file. My problem is I can’t find the right “phase” statement in the child theme function.php file use of remove_action (and add_action) to properly replace your built-in cruz_related_posts function.

What would be the proper statement to replace the cruz_related_posts function in a child theme functions.php file?

I assume it would be something along the lines of this statement appearing after the new related posts function:

remove_action(‘?’, ‘cruz_related_posts’);

add_action(‘?’, ‘cruz_related_posts_new’);

What would be the proper “?” phase in that statement?

SaurabhSharma

Hello altlab,

A child theme can override the parent theme’s function simply by re-declaring the function. It is not required to ‘remove_action’ or ‘add_action’. But this works only when the parent theme functions are pluggable. i.e. wrapped in a conditional statement.

It will be required to wrap the cruz_related_posts function in a conditional statement in parent theme as:

if (!function_exists('cruz_related_posts')) {
   function cruz_related_posts( $crz_rp_taxonomy, $crz_rp_style, $crz_rp_num ) {
        //  related posts code
    }
}

Next, declare the cruz_related_posts() inside child theme with your own modifications. It will override the parent.

P.S. Instead of going through this process, I’d recommend commenting out the original function and simply place your new function inside parent functions.php. That would be more straight-forward. :)

Ok, thanks for the info. Our goal with the child theme is to leave the parent cruz theme files untouched as much as possible, hence my question. It makes upgrades difficult when we change the original cruz theme files because we can’t override something in the child theme.

I know your theme isn’t a framework and designed to be overly modified by a child theme—if you take suggestions for future releases, would love to see your parent theme more pluggable as you described.

We decided to create a new related posts function in a child theme single.php and functions.php, bypassing your original parent function as you mentioned.

SaurabhSharma

Hello altlab,

Feedback taken. I will try to make it flexible enough to support child theme. :)

Hi, I’ve just moved them from one host to another and having real issues getting the images to display. It worked fine on the old host. Is there is a common list to check through? I have permissions on cache etc correct and have tried various alternatives.

I think it is related to TimThumb permissions. I have emailed you on what I think is correct address.

Hello,

I can’t seem to get the “read more” feature to work for the News/Blog page? It always shows the full article, do you have any advice for this?

Kind regards, Christian

SaurabhSharma

Hello Christian,

It will be required to insert a <!--more--> quicktag inside the post content. This tag will divide the post content into an excerpt, and will place the read more button.

Saurabh, I’m having some problems after updating to Wordpress 3.4 and using your latest version. When I create a (form) for a paypal button through a shortcode, the theme is inserting (br) between each field. Somehow it translates a new line into a (br). Any ideas How can I solve this?

Replace ( with <

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello pacogarcia,

You can try by wrapping the short code within [raw] short code, as shown below:

[raw]
[your_paypal_shortcode]
[/raw]

This should execute the short code in normal way.

Hello,

If I wanted to make the custom post options you have created available (so that they display) on a new type of post I am registering. What would I have to add in?

Is it in the ‘supports’ bit?

Kind regards, Christian

SaurabhSharma

Hello Christian,

The Post Options panel will show only for standard ‘Posts’ and ‘Custom Post formats’, not for Custom post types. In order to create option panel for Custom Post Types, it will be required to add meta boxes in a separate file. For your reference, the post options are created using includes/post_options.php file. This file is included inside functions.php on top section.

You can create another such file for Custom Post types, and include it inside functions.php (similar to the post_options.php). I hope that will help.

Hello,

my homepage slider doesn’t work after upgrading to WP3 .4

any advise ?

Hello comawhite,

Can you post the site URL so that I can check and suggest appropriate solution. I guess you are using an older version of the theme.

Hello again,

The theme version is very old (1.0). The jquery.easing.min.js file used in that version is no longer supported by latest jquery. Inside header.php, look for the following code at around line no. 39:

wp_enqueue_script("jq-easing", $dir."/js/jquery.easing.min.js");

Delete this line and save the file. The slider should work. If it doesn’t, kindly send me your WP login at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

First off, thanks for the theme – it’s perfect for what I need it for.

My question is, how do you set up the homepage exactly like your demo. The one area I’m having trouble in is getting a featured section at the top of the content (e.g. – your Flexible Layout, Authentic Features & Improved User Experience) and ALSO have the 4 blog posts below EXACTLY like you have it setup. I can get the blog posts to display in a horizontally wide fashion, but I want them to be able to fit 4 side by side.

Thanks for your help.

SaurabhSharma

Hello aedeeley,

Thanks for the purchase and kind appreciation.

The Home page uses a full width page (by hiding sidebar). The Slider section is populated using posts from a specified category, whereas rest of the page content is created using short codes and plain content/markup.

For setting up the slider, kindly refer to your_download/documentation/index.html file’s section 7. Create Home Page Slider and Content.

For the page content (4 boxes, 3 boxes, etc), open cruz/dummy_data/home.txt file. Next copy and paste this content inside your Home Page in HTML mode. It will be required to replace images with your own ones. For any further help, feel free to ask here or drop me an email from my profile message box.

Hi, I would like to put a 1/3 box on the homepage with “latest posts” but not in the footer area. Is that possible? In place of where your “Flexible Layout Option” box is on your demo site.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Ian,

A 1 /3 box can be inserted using [one_third] short code. But showing latest posts will need a custom short code. The theme comes with a “Latest Posts” widget that can only be used in widget areas—Sidebar or Footer.

You can drop me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will try if I can provide a short code snippet for latest posts.

Hello!

Fantastic theme! One question though! I have inserted some images on the home page just like on your demo (4 column) with foldify style. Is there a way to make them link to a page, not to the image itself?

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello anda_th,

Thanks for your kind words.

Currently, you might be using the following code for folding image:

[frame src="url_of_source_image" width="204" height="160" style="foldify" linkstyle="pp" title="Image Title"]

Change this to:

[frame src="url_of_source_image" width="204" height="160" style="foldify" linkstyle="normal" linksto="url_of_page_to_be_linked" title="Image Title"]

i.e. change linkstyle to ‘normal’, and add a linksto parameter with value as URL of target page.

Hi, this theme has worked great for me. The site I used it on has been up and running without any troubles.

I have been asked to create a mobile version of the site. I have looked at a lot of plugins that are supposed to help you do this but I have found them all pretty cumbersome with mixed results.

Do you have a solution you would recommend for this theme.

Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you.

SaurabhSharma

Hello amyhale,

Thanks for your kind words and feedback.

It will be a bit difficult to make this theme responsive. There are some elements that do not support responsiveness. For example, Cycle and Nivo Slider. The grids are of fixed with and pixel based. (A percentage based grid works better for fluid layouts).

If you are good at CSS , it will be required to re-assign sizes to each and every section inside a responsive.css file. Next, this file can be called inside footer.php within a conditional query for mobile devices. To give an idea, this process will involve re-sizing images, column grids, removing floats, and re-positioning elements in a vertical stack order.

You can also try WP Touch plugin if that works. For elements that are not supported properly, you can discard them by using css display:none inside responsive.css. If you need help at any instance, feel free to drop me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

I have just created a new website www.clivesteeper.com using this theme and put a slider on the home page. It works okay when looking at it in Mozilla but not in Explorer. ANy ideas please?

I am not very techy so i hope its a non- techy way to solove it.

SaurabhSharma

Hello suestockdale,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

Right now I can not see slide images in any browser. The slider list is empty. Make sure you have provided the Category IDs for slider inside Appearance > Cruz Options > Slider. Also confirm that the provided category has some posts in it with featured image URL . If that doesn’t work, kindly send me your WP login at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will fix it.
