Hi Chris, is there a way to have a video as the an item in the Featured Slider? We have recently purchased your template to use as a student media portal, which will encompass work by our newspaper, magazine, television and radio students. Thank you!

Hello, thanks for choosing Daphne!

Unfortunately it’s not possible at this moment, the slider can only display the featured image of your posts, sorry.

Thanks for sharing your site. Let me know if you need any help with the theme :).

Thanks Chris. For now I just used a screen capture of the video, so we’ll figure it out! :) I will certainly let you know if we have questions.

Hey there – this might be a really basic question, but how do I assign colors to categories?

chrisbit

Hello! :)

From your admin panel go to Posts > Categories and edit the category that you want to customise with the color picker. You can check out the 2.7 “Category Colors” section of the documentation for more details.

Default-user

That worked – Thanks!

Follow Ups – How can I change the red color bar at the top/ can I change the color of the big black box on the bottom.

chrisbit

Great!

There’s no option for that, but you can paste this code snippet into the theme options “Custom CSS” area to change the border color:

#wrap { border-top: 3px solid #d1250e !important; //change the hex value }

It’s also possible to change the color of the footer, but would require some customization of the css/style.css.

Default-user

Alright, that doesn’t sound too horrible – my main thing is trying to get things fit the color scheme. Before asking about how to customize the css/style.css, is there an easy way to change the color red underthings like “Latest News” or the red when hovering over the header menu?

chrisbit

Yes, but that would require CSS customization because there many elements with that color. You can try to find and replace in the “css/style.css” the hex values for red color (”#C54939” and ”#D1250E”).

Default-user

I was able to go into the stylesheet and update those hex values – worked great! Thank you.

Hi, I have a problem with page title post. The title of article appear correctly inside the but it doesen’t appear on page title of browser, here there is only the name of the site. Thank you for help

chrisbit

Hello,

That’s weird. Do you use any SEO plugin that changes the way the page title is displayed? Try to disable your plugins one by one to see if there’s any conflict. If this does not work, please email me to chris(at)inibot.com with your WordPress login details, so that I can take a look.

Hello,

thank for your theme. It’s exactly what i had in head. However, I would like the part “Featured Blocks” insert images with links to categories. I have searched but not found a way to do it. Can you help me? Many thanks for your help. BR Valérie http://sf-univers.com/
chrisbit

Hello, Valérie. Thanks for choosing Daphne! :)

Unfortunately, this requires some customization featured-area.php file, especially if you want to manage your links from the WordPress dashboard. Maybe a simple solution would be to set some featured posts with your desired categories, and use some plugin like this to redirect the post to a category url.

Default-user

Great ! many thank for this solution. I’ve tried to insert a link inside the image but unsuccessful. No matter. It’s a real progress now.

we are using this theme for a website and want to create a separate page for blogs, so they also don’t get updated on homepage along with the product listing.

kindly suggest how we do so.

looking for a sooner reply as we need to do it as early as possible.

chrisbit

Hello,

You could create a new category (e.g. “Blog”) and exclude the posts under this category from the homepage, so then you can use the category arhive page for your purpose. You can easily exclude categories and posts from the home with this plugin.

Default-user

i did that and it worked. however i wanted the blog to appear like blog but even in blog category i don’t get an option to change the side bar. plz suggest how i can have a pure blog interface and experience in this category

chrisbit

There is no an option to do this I’m afraid. You need to create a separate blog template page or a category template, but require some changes in the theme files.

Hello,

In the administration part, I can’t find the “links section” Have you close or hiddent the part link manager ? Thank’s ! Valérie

chrisbit

Hello, Valérie,

Not at all. Since WordPress 3.5, the Links Manager has been hidden by default, and you need to install this plugin to restore it.

Default-user

Done ! thank’s :)

Hi,

How can i enable comment form and recent comments per page to post page?

Enabling comments from settings doesnt seem to do the trick.

chrisbit

Hello,

Comments are only shown in posts, not pages, but you can easily enable them. Open content-page.php and add this line at the end:

<?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>
Default-user

Hi,

Thank you for fast reply again.

Did what you told and got this:

“Warning: call_user_func() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function ‘daphne_comment’ not found or invalid function name in /urltosite/htdocs/wp-includes/comment-template.php on line 1619”.

At comment-template.php starting from line 1618:

1618 if ( !empty( $args[‘callback’] ) ) { 1619 call_user_func( $args[‘callback’], $comment, $args, $depth ); return; }

if ( ( 'pingback'  $comment->comment_type || 'trackback'  $comment->comment_type ) && $args['short_ping'] ) {
        $this->ping( $comment, $depth, $args );
    } elseif ( 'html5' === $args['format'] ) {
        $this->html5_comment( $comment, $depth, $args );
    } else {
        $this->comment( $comment, $depth, $args );
    }
}

Another thing i wanted to ask is “Most popular posts” Widget.

Is there a way to sort post popularity by date period? Now it is just static block with always the same posts on it. Otherwise it works like a charm!

chrisbit

That’s weird. Are you sure that you put the comments function into the content-page.php? Works fine for me. If so, could you send an email with your WordPress login details so that I can take a look please?

About the popular posts widget, currently this is not possible, but it’s something I’ll consider for a future update. Thanks!

Hi. I just purchased this theme and the slider isn’t working. I was told that the theme has 2 javascript errors that will stop other javascript (like the slider) from functioning correctly. Both errors are in init.js and are the same (Uncaught TypeError: Property ’$’ of object [object Object] is not a function ) and mean that the jQuery hasn’t been put into non-conflict mode. Is there an update for this error? The website is www.kayree.com

chrisbit

Hello,

It sounds like there’s a javascript conflict. Please try to disable your plugins one by one to see which one is causing it. I checked your website, but I see that you are not currently using Daphne.

Default-user

I am using Dapne…you may have looked when I uninstalled/reinstalled. I am using the Event Espresso plugin. I already asked them if the conflict was due to their plugin and they responded that the error was due to a the error I mentioned.

chrisbit

Please try this: Open inc/init.js and replace the $ shortcut with jQuery, at least in the first two functions (between lines 1-24). This should fix the conflict.

Default-user

This worked. Thank you very much!

Hi again, Can you help me again ? I don’t want to use 2 blocks for Featured blocks but only one and use the second block for a widget single Ad. the blog : sf-univers.com thank’s for your help Val

Default-user

Or if it’s not possible, I want to use this place only for publicity as you can see in my website for strip cartoon’s purchase. thanks

chrisbit

Hello again :)

The featured area is not widgetized, and it will require some customization to achieve this. You have to modify the featured-area.php file, or maybe you could try to use the redirect plugin to redirect your blocks to a custom url.

Just bought this for a 3.8.1 Wordpress install and when I click on Post and then I try to feature an image it loads to a new page instead of a popup or window. When I try to feature something it does not work. I think the issue is that is not popping up in a new window.

chrisbit

Hello, thanks for purchasing Daphne :)

I’m not sure, but this seems to be a problem with some third-party plugin or your WordPress installation. Please try to switch the theme to the default one and disable your plugins to see if the problem persists or not.

Default-user

Its a new install I have no plugins and it’s a new site

Default-user

The issue does not happen if I save the post first and then go back to it and click on the “Set Featured image”. If I do a new post it won’t let me select the “Set Featured image”

chrisbit

Have you tried with the default WordPress theme? If the problem persists, could you please send me your admin login details to chris(at)inibot.com so I can take a look? Thanks.

Default-user

Your support was extremely fast and everything seems good now.

Kind of a 2 parter dilemma. When having images fairly small (121pxX121px) the image caption just keeps going it doesn’t remain the same size as the image. And if I try to have an image with a caption inside an accordion menu (taken from the short codes) the caption doesn’t work, it shows the code of the caption on the page. Is there a fix for this?

chrisbit

Hello,

Can you post your url so I can take a look? I just tested the caption feature with a small image (121×121) and works fine for me. About the second problem, please open the functions.php file and paste the next code at the end:

add_filter('the_content', 'do_shortcode');

This should fix the problem with the image caption within a shortcode.

Default-user
Hi Chrisbit, I added in the short code that you advised me to do. It doesn’t work. I want the image caption to remain the same width as the image. It doesn’t do that. Can you have a look and let me know what you think the problem might be? Here’s the link: http://www.techspa.ca/wiki/book-chapters/the-money-myth/ Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you’ll see the image of a book with the caption I’m referring to.
chrisbit

That’s strange. Here is a demo page with a image inside an accordion menu: http://inibot.com/daphne/image-caption/ Please send me an email to hello(at)inibot.com with your login details to see what is the problem.

Default-user

Thanks for making that demo page. I see in the code for #content article .wp-caption { max-width:98% !important; } mine is: #content article .wp-caption { width:auto !important; } Do you think that’s whats causing the problem?

Default-user

Ok I changed that in the css, i hope that doesn’t screw anything else up :/ Thanks Chris

chrisbit

Oh, then you have an older version. That code is from the latest theme update, which include some improvements. That will fix your issue :).

Hi Refer to: http://motorheads.me/ Just purchased this theme some questions arise: 1. The slider images are distorted – how to fix this? 2. Click on the slider arrows (left or right) does not appear to work… 3. In the advertising areas – how do you place Google adsense or affiliate advertising code?

Info on this apprecaited Cheers PV

chrisbit

Hello,

You need to regenerate your thumbnails for images uploaded before installing the theme; this can be done with a plugin like Regenerate Thumbnails. I just checked your site and I don’t see any problem with the slider.

About the advertising manager, currently it only supports image-based ads, but you can use the Text Widget to include your AdSense code in the sidebar or by editing the header theme file.

I couldn’t see your “purchased” badge in your comment, for further support please login with the account that you purchased the theme.

Hi Chris Refer to: http://motorheads.me/ There appears to be a mesh of sorts on the slider image – is there a way to disable this? Cheers PV

chrisbit

Hello,

Yes, go to the Theme Options Panel -> Style tab and paste the next snippet into the custom css area:

.slider .overlay {display:none;}

Hi Chris First great theme but most importantly great support. Bravo! With refernce to: http://motorheads.me/ Would like to know if it is possible to assign a specific category to all the posts that appear under Latest Posts These are as the title says all the latest posts – however it would be useful to know how to assign a specific category of posts to this area. Please let me know Cheers

chrisbit

Hello, thanks for your comment :)

Do you mean the Latest News section on the homepage? Unfortunately there is no an option in the admin panel to specify a category, but there are some WordPress plugins that allows you to exclude categories from the main post loop.

How can i change the color of the links and other things like de line above the menu?

chrisbit

Hello, You would need to edit the /css/style.css file. Find the ”.sf-menu” selectors to change the menu elements.

Hi We are having a strange issue with inserting gallery. Here we have gallery which works fine: http://motorheads.me/2014/02/mclaren-release-first-images-of-mclaren-650s-coupe/

But this gallery: http://motorheads.me/2014/03/2014-geneva-motor-show-image-gallery/ Has a huge space between main picture (top) with thumbnails far below with gray area in between

Weare using standard WP gallery and no plugins etc.

Please advise Cheers PV

chrisbit

Hello,

This because you have an image (this one) with a greater height size, which is creating that space between the slider and thumbnails. However, there is an option to dynamically adjust the height size.

Open js/init.js and add the following option inside the ”$(’.gallery-slider’).flexslider({” initialize function (line #24):

smoothHeight: true,

I have the widget for popular posts on my sidebar but it has the same posts since almost three months now, even though there are more than 20 recent posts with more views. Is there any way to refresh it?

Hey! We’ve been using the Daphne theme for a while now, but in the last couple weeks/month the Facebook Comment Plugin has started to look like this:

http://i.imgur.com/sTSBVoA.png

I know this is a script somewhere in the theme, any ideas/help?

chrisbit

Hello! Yes, I just noticed this. Facebook made some changes in their comments plugin, which caused conflicts with the fluid width.

There is a workaround. Open the js/init.js file and paste this code at the end: http://snippi.com/s/5cdvxri

Then go to the content-single.php file and find and remove the following data attribute in line #43: data-width=”100”
