Hi,

when If I write my url on a facebook wall, page, etc…the thumbnail that pops up is that of a social media icon (that i have for our portfolio) how do I change it so that my logo appears instead?

Thank you

You can use OGP. Please google this and you’ll find example tags. You can insert them in [Portfolio > Add New] in custom code (see SEO panel).

Hi, Now I am constructing homepage using your theme. However, I found some strangeness and difficulty when I use google map shortcode in your framework.

http://darim.com/vision/cf0/ is working good. However, when I make these toggle context, google map is displayed broken. How can I fix it?—http://darim.com/vision/cf1/ When I tired using raw jquery, the result is same. http://darim.com/vision/cf2/

Each gmap has their individual ID, however, it seems that gmap in your framework has some errors when it is displayed with others together. Could you examine this issue? Thanks in advance.

Flow
Flow Author

It’s actually not meant to be used with other shortcodes because nested shortcodes don’t work like expected in WordPress (due to performance reasons).

See limitations of Shortcodes API: http://codex.wordpress.org/Shortcode_API#Nested_Shortcodes

Nonetheless, it almost works. Resizing the browser window fixes it. Sure, we’ll sort this out for you. Can you please move this to the support forum? Please also update your profile with FTP login and password. We’ll upload the fix directly to your server.

Just a quick update. This has been resolved on the forum http://support.forcg.com/topic/gmapgoogle-map-shortcode-bugs and the documentation has been updated to notify others what is required to make Google Maps work with hidden containers: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#googleMaps

Hi again, Flow.

I’ve hired a developer who translated the menus to portuguese. Now I want to update the theme to 1.9 version. Is there a way to do it without losing those modifications?

Flow
Flow Author

It’s best to contact that developer to find out if it’s safe to update. But if it’s only translation work then I bet it’s safe.

Is there any way when i choose from the filters one category, then open a post from that category, when i press next arrow to move inside the posts of this particular category and not through all the posts of the portfolio??? :/

Flow
Flow Author

You can do this since 1.9.1. We added a couple of options to loop through selected posts only etc.

Default-user

I updated the theme…Now where I can find these options? Is there a documentation for that?

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, the documentation is here: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#portfolio-faq

You can do that under [Pages > Homepage] or [Pages > Portfolio] if they are set to “Portfolio Template”.

Hi, I’m considering buying your theme but wondering if there is any way to control how the menu compresses and doesn’t show the logo, but instead has a back button. I would like the menu to stay the same wherever you are on the site.

Thanks. Nice theme!

Flow
Flow Author

There is a way to do this. You’ll find the full solution here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes (available after purchase or with any dummy item purchase code if you’d like to test that on the trial website before purchase).

hello! I bought yesterday this wonderful theme, but haven’t been able to install it. I have latest WP on istalled locally (localhost), has done all the instructions, but when uploading the theme it just stays decompressing forever… I tried updating other themes such Adapt, which I am currently using on my web and it uploaded it just fine. What I’m doing wrong? Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author

Latest WP 3.5.1 – OK
Localhost – OK (we use WAMP on Windows 7 with almost default configuration as well)

“stays decompressing forever…”
Someone had this issue too on their server. If I recall well that person uploaded the theme via FTP and not [Appearance > Themes > Install > Upload].

We also came to conclusion that it is server related issue. Please just google the following term(s): “wordpress unpacking the package” or “wordpress unpacking the package stuck” or “wordpress unpacking the package freeze” and you’ll see that many more people have this issue. And there are solutions and possible causes as well.

Please let me know if you need my further help with this. It’s best to use [Appearance > Themes > Install > Upload] but if it doesn’t work then fortunately you have an option to upload it directly to /wordpress/wp-content/themes/daisho/ too. It’s worth fixing this issue though because it may be useful later on. If only you need my further advice please check the support forum.
Default-user

Thank you. I did. I used an FTP to upload and it worked. Now I have uploaded the sample content, but can not manage to make it work. Sorry. I’m pretty new at this. Thank you.

Flow
Flow Author

Sure, feel free to ask questions then. WordPress and websites are not a simple subject but over time it’s going to be easier and easier :)

You can upload it under [Tools > Import]. If it doesn’t work (like it’s stuck like the ZIP package did) then there’s something wrong with that localhost configuration. If I recall well WAMP required a couple of tweaks but we successfully use it with almost default configuration on Windows 7 machine.

Too bad that I can’t login and check that for you. I would probably notice what is wrong quickly. Is there any option to test that on the actual server and not localhost? I would be able to guide you and perhaps configure things for you easily then.

but can not manage to make it work
In case you managed to upload it but it doesn’t work for some other reason, can you please provide more details? I just need to know what exactly happens. Thank you!
Default-user

Thanks! Well, I’m definetly learning. I am just using your tutorials and doing it one step at a time. I’ve learned how to show the menu pyctograms and so on, so far so good. I’m sure something will come up later on, so I will contact you again with probably a silly question. :) Thanks again.

Hi Flow! Me again. I am having troubke setting up the contact page as the demo, (I wasn’t able to upload the demo info) so I have used the support common changes info, and updated the data, but can’t make the 2 column map/form style. This is what I have:

How do I change the fonts in the theme? First I want to edit the title font for the thumbnails.

Flow
Flow Author

Some of them are already listed here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

Also this may be helpful as it describes custom modifications in general: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#customModifications

You’re interested in framework/shortcodes/daisho-isotype/style.css and selectors such as: .element .thumbnail-hover, .element .symbol { font-family: Lato; } (there are more settings available there).

Lastly, if you can’t find selectors please list them all on the support forum and if those are short 5-10 minutes modifications then you can surely count on our help. If those are complex changes then you can also ask developers to do that for you.

How do I enable comments in the portfolio page and see it on the page

Flow
Flow Author

Portfolio projects don’t have comments due to the way they are presented. Technically they are popup windows and comments would have to be loaded via AJAX if anyone wanted them there. There is simply no page refresh so WordPress can’t fetch comments and re-generate form with its security nonce fields. You can use comments for all pages and posts that include page refresh.

One or two people suggested comments for portfolio already but if I’m not mistaken both came to conclusion that they actually don’t want comments there. It’s on our list of suggestions but with low priority.

Hi. Great theme! Question: Is there a way to change portfolio page so that each portfolio item presents as a color block with text and upon hovering, the thumbnail image will be revealed? Basically the opposite of the default functionality…

Thank you!

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it!

Here is the code:
  • .element:hover .thumbnail-hover, .element:hover .symbol, .element:hover .name, .element:hover .categories { opacity: 0; transition: opacity 0.25s ease-in-out 0s, visibility 0s ease 0s; visibility: visible; } (for this selector only opacity changes from 1 to 0).

  • .element:hover .thumbnail-hover { opacity: 0; } (this one is new)

Edit/add both in framework/shortcodes/daisho-isotype/style.css

I think that that’s everything you need.

Default-user

Hi again,

I made the changes to CSS file (I think I changed it correctly) and I am not getting the desired results.  Upon hovering on a portfolio item, the color block w/ text now changes to same color block no text..  How can I get:  color block w/ text change to thumbnail image upon hovering?

Best

Flow
Flow Author

I tried the code I pasted before pasting it and it worked. Please paste it at the bottom of framework/shortcodes/daisho-isotype/style.css or under [Daisho > General > Custom CSS Code].

If it still doesn’t work then please let me know what is your website’s address and I’ll check what happens there. You can also create a support ticket if you’d like someone to login there and check those files.

Hi Flow,

Really great theme, Daisho!

I have a pre-purchase question:

Would it be possible to change the info-box from sliding down from the top to sliding in from the right?

Can you direct me on how to do this?

Best regards Peter

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it!

Perhaps there are plugins out there to achieve this. If not it’s like 60 minutes of work. There are more things to consider when doing this:

  • what should happen as you scale the browser window down? Elements shouldn’t overlap. Perhaps scrollbar should appear.
  • how about its maximum width? And perhaps also horizontal scrollbar?
  • how about mobile devices and tablets support?
  • if it’s vertical then you can put less elements there – basically only text, small images or at most some form, sharing icons or small video.

I can guide you but to have it done the best possible way perhaps a help of some developer would be useful.

It just requires in-depth testing on all devices and in major browsers. The most basic changes should be done to the CSS and to this file: http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/wp-content/themes/daisho/framework/shortcodes/module-daisho-info-box/daisho-info-box.js (change margin-top to margin-right).

Hi there is a way to have three columns with different width in the footer? I’m using : grid_6, grid_3, grid_3, grid_12

but the result it’s not the expected one (the second grid_3 is under the first grid_3 column)

Cheers

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, example: grid_3, grid_3, grid_6 last. This would create 25% column, 25% column and 50% column.

It seems like my admin panel isn’t working so hot. I can’t seem to change the page title or page description. No matter what I put in these fields, the page continues to show the demo content (E.g. “About us” continues to display even though I’ve changed it to “About”, and the description continues to read “Fighting on the frontlines of media landscape, Daisho team is one of the leading players in new media solutions delivering across multiple platforms.”)...

The frontpage’s welcome text seemed to work fine, but none of the other pages. Have you seen this happen before? Very frustrating…

Flow
Flow Author

In “Custom Fields” panel please remove Title and Description ones. We recently switched to flow_post_title and flow_post_description because naming that “Title” and “Description” was a poor choice. Many plugins use such custom field names as well.

We updated 1.9.1 XML file to consider this on the 21st February: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/191/

So, it will be fine as long as these additional custom fields are gone.

I’m sorry for inconvenience! We had to do this because plugins like “All In One SEO Pack” chose “Title” and “Description” custom fields as well and it caused conflicts. Rather than asking them to prefix their custom fields we decided to prefix our own ones.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. No problem about the inconvenience- it makes sense. Can you tell me what you mean by ”’Custom Fields’ panel”? Is that a file I need to edit? I don’t see a custom fields panel in the Wordpress admin area…

Flow
Flow Author

This panel exists by default in any WordPress theme but it’s not very user-friendly so it’s often hidden. Developers usually create their own panels instead of that one.

You can find it under [Pages > Add New] as well as [Posts > Add New] and during any other post type creation. It’s below the main “Editor”. There are a few meta boxes there and one is called “Custom Fields”. It lists all custom fields for that post. If it’s hidden, you can enable it in the top right corner in “Screen Options”.

I hope that helps :)

Hi

I was wondering why when I click on a blog post here, it goes back to the main page?

Flow
Flow Author

It looks like you can’t access this link from within WordPress admin panel as well. Please try “View Post” in [Posts > Website update]. Please re-save [Settings > Permalink] because it looks like they do not take effect and it runs 404.php which redirects to the homepage.

How can I edit the title tag and description of the homepage. The homepage sees to be a placeholder only. The manual says I should change the blog title. I do not use a blog.

Thank you

Flow
Flow Author

Homepage doesn’t have title nor description by default like other sub-pages do. It consists of “Welcome Text” and “Portfolio Grid”. Document title (not page title) can be customized under [Settings > General] in WordPress Admin Panel. “Site Title” (or blog title) is taken.

Default-user

So you are saying I cannot give this a <title> tag at all?

Flow
Flow Author

Each page has a <title> tag. It is there automatically.

I’m only saying that the homepage has no “page title” but it has <title> tag that you can customize under [Settings > General > Site Title].

Default-user

OK. But its add something <title>sitetitle – Strona G?ówna</title> This probably comes from the polisch translation file?

Default-user

I use the polish file to translate it to german. But still I do not understand why this is added. even if I would translate this. And do not want this after the site title

Flow
Flow Author

It’s best to use POT file to create PO and MO files in your native language. You can also delete all polish translations from pl_PL.po file and generate a new de_DE.po file (and then MO). You can delete “– Strona Glowna” part in PO/MO file.

I hope that helps :)

Default-user

yeah i did that. But did not translate everything. so i will delete this part. I means “website” it seems ;)

Default-user

now it works….

Flow
Flow Author

Great :) It may not be that straight forward but if only it’s configured well, it should work well, without bugs. Feel free to ask more questions.

Daisho is really well done if it comes to translations. You can translate everything in any way. Demo is a working proof that even potentially problematic parts (like dynamic date format or multiple plural forms that are not present in English but are present in Polish) are translatable.

I have one other question. The button in the slideshow can be linked. But can also the whole slide be linked without using the button? Changed this in the slider template. But for updates this is not perfect.

Flow
Flow Author

At this moment only button can be a link.

Ideally, I’d like to enable people to insert any custom HTML as a slide (would be awesome!) and with such functionality you would be able to do this but… only like 1 out of 20 people are familiar with HTML so majority of users would need custom drag&drop editor to accompany such feature. It’s a bit of work but certainly it would be very useful and powerful.

Default-user

OK. thanks. Last question (I hope). Can I somewhere change the order of the elements in the slideshow? I found an field for order where I can input numbers like 1,2,3. But this does not change anything.

Flow
Flow Author
I found an field for order where I can input numbers like 1,2,3. But this does not change anything.
That’s right – that’s because this field is actually for something else and WordPress doesn’t use it to re-order posts. You can change publication date of slideshow posts and that will change their order. This would be the recommended solution.

And some people wrote WordPress extensions that allow you to re-order posts in admin panel without changing their publication dates: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-types-order/

That should help :)

Hi, this theme is amazing. Thank you for the hard work!

I’m having a problem, when i put the slider in the homepage and i want to scroll down, the scrolling action gets stucked in the slider and it does not go down, only keeps changing the slider images. How can this be fixed? Thank you.

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it!

You can change that under [Daisho > Slideshow]. There is unfortunately no elegant way to have 1 action (scroll) do 2 things at the same time so either one or another will be enabled (slide left/right or top/bottom). If you’d like scroll top/bottom functionality then left/right should be disabled.

I hope that helps :)

Hi hi. Great template. I’m trying to see if my issue is a host issue or daisho issue. I’m thinking host.

Every page doesn’t seem to work other than the home. However, everything seems okay in the home page.

For example. Viewing work at www.origamut.com (home page) works. But going to any other page, like contact, about, or anything else, brings a 404 error. I can’t think of anything I did recent that causes this and upgrading wordpress + daisho didn’t fix the issue.

Flow
Flow Author

Please re-save [Settings > Permalinks]. Please also set them to default links and please check if it happens in Twenty Twelve theme as well.

Lastly, please create a support ticket on our forum and please email your Server Administrator as well.

That should eventually help :) Normally, it should work out of the box. We develop on WAMP server (Windows 7) and it’s fine there with default configuration.

I’ll make a new post for this one. Now that the site is fixed, the only thing that’s changed that I can’t find out how to fix is to disable comments on some pages. The contact and about page show comments at the bottom of the page. I can’t see anything that says to allow comments on the default template (looking at the page attributes box) and the documentation says “Pages will have “Allow comments” set to FALSE.”

Flow
Flow Author

Yup, all new pages will not have comment form enabled by default. You can switch comments on/off under [Pages > Add New > Allow comments]. If this box is not visible, please check “Screen Options” in the top right corner. You’ll be able to enable additional boxes there. That should help :)

Flow, thank you for your previous response to my font question. I am currently having trouble with this: I have looked all over but can not find where to edit the sub header text for my About and Contact pages. For example on about, it says fighting on the front lines, and on contact, it says feel free to contact our offices world wide.

Also how do I remove the map on the contact page?

Flow
Flow Author

To remove “About” and “Contact” please go to [Pages > About] and in “Custom Fields” panel please make sure that:

  • Title – doesn’t exist
  • Description – doesn’t exist
  • flow_post_title – exists
  • flow_post_description – exists

First two are for backwards compatibility and you can remove them if they are still there.

You’ll find “Custom Fields” panel just below main editor. If it’s not visible then you can enable it at the top in the right corner (“Screen Options”).

Also how do I remove the map on the contact page?
It’s just a shortcode http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#googleMaps that you can remove under [Pages > Contact].

I hope that my answer will be sufficient to do both changes :)
