Hello,

From reading the comments I understand that to create portfolios I need to install the Ruven Toolkit, however I’m having problems finding it. The links from previous comments don’t work and it doesn’t come up in wordpress plugin searches. Could someone please advise? Thanks.

Default-user

Perfect thanks so much.

Hi Ruven,

Another quick question. When I create a portfolio item, it doesn’t show up in my stream of latest content on the home page alongside other posts. In fact, they don’t show up anywhere at all.

Even when I click the ‘view portfolio item’ button it opens my website but says that nothing has been found.

Am I wrong to think that portfolios should work in the same way as posts?

RuvenThemes

Hi,

You might experience this issue, because I recently changed the portfolio item slug to avoid a known WordPress bug. Please go to “Settings > Permalinks” and hit “Save Changes”. This will cause the rewrite rules to flush, and after that everything should work as expected.

Default-user

Hi thanks for the quick response. Doing that has made the portfolio visible when i click ‘view portfolio item’ however there still remains 2 issues…

1) the portfolio shows like this http://styleldn.com/wordpress/portfolio-item/portfolio/ rather than in 3 columns like in the demo (despite the fact that 3 columns is selected in customiser)

2) The portfolio still isn’t appearing in the stream of recent content, like the normal posts do? Any ideas?

Could you create an admin account for the email support[at]ruventhemes.com and send me a mail with the login data and short summary of the problem within this email (for my record), so I can investigate it?

Hi, I did this last night. I hope you received it. If not, please check your spam / junk folder as my emails from that account sometimes end up in peoples junk. Thanks.

Hi Conte, please download this file: http://cl.ly/TahY/download/single.php and replace the file “Darkwhite/single.php” with it. This will remove the sidebar for posts completely.

Hi, I recently made an update of Wordpress and under each post there’s a large white space . http://www.orakulli.com , could you please help me what to change ?

Thanks indeed

RuvenThemes

Hi, Everything looks fine to me. Did you solve the issue?

Default-user

Yes its ok I solved it. Just asking something else; When I put the Sidebar Position on the Left it is ok, but I want to put on the Right the Sidebar stays all time on the bottom of the post.

Is any possibility to put it in the top, as per Left Sidebar .

Thank you for you replay .

RuvenThemes

Thanks for letting me know about this issue. I will fix it with the next update. To fix it right now in your theme, please open the section “General Settings” in the Customizer and paste the following code into the “Custom CSS Code” field:

.sidebar-right #site-sidebar { margin-left: -2px; }
Default-user

Thanks indeed, It Works very well .

Hello, can I ask why in the main page, for some articles I have some empty space in the bottom. Is any solution for this ? www.orakulli.com

Thanks for your help.

RuvenThemes

Darkwhite uses a jQuery plugin called “Isotope” to adjust the posts vertically. It seems that it doesn’t load on your page. Please try to deactivate your plugins to see if one of them is causing the issue.

Is there a way to remove the comments from certain pages? I’m trying to create a page as a static index page with some code in it but want to get rid of the comments.

RuvenThemes

Yes, when you edit a post, click the tab “Screen Options” in the top right corner and set the checkmark on “Discussion”. Now you can scroll down and uncheck “Allow Comments” :)

Default-user

I saw that. I read the documentation and missed it but found it when I re-read it. I was wondering, is there a way to get rid of the “header” where the page title sits?

RuvenThemes

In the Customizer please open the section “General Settings” and paste the following code into the “Custom CSS Code” field:

#page-header { display: none; }
Default-user

Can I do this on the page level. I just don’t want it on the home page.

RuvenThemes

In that case, please use this code:

.home #page-header { display: none; }

Now the page header will only disappear on the home page.

Default-user

I found a way to do it. If anyone is interested it’s this: }[/code]

page-header {

display: none;

Default-user

I mean this body.page-id-xxx #page-header { display: none; } in your custom css. Use the child theme obviously.

Is there a simple way to update the theme? I’m still on 1.2.2 and would love the new and updated one.

RuvenThemes

Yes, there are two ways to do it. Here you go: http://docs.ruventhemes.com/darkwhite/#updating-the-theme :)

I fix it, but has to do in main page somehow with image re-size, this happen just in main page even if you install the plugin, I will make a resize of my image in future.. In category page is ok. Thanks a lot for the help .

RuvenThemes

If a plugin isn’t the issue, maybe a fresh install will help. Let me know if you need more help.

How I should proceed to include the adsense javascript code? I want to add it at the botton of the post and inside a text widget.

RuvenThemes

There should be some good plugins out there to do this. Google should be of help http://cl.ly/U16F :)

it doesn´t work. Appears a kind of iframe. I also have problems with share buttons, so I don´t know what more to do. If you can help, I would be very grateful

RuvenThemes

Hi,

So none of the plugins work at all? What exactly is the problem with the share buttons? Can you send me a link to your site, so I can check it out?

Hi there,

I use Weebly to manage my website. Would I be able to import your theme to Weebly?

The requirements are :

“A zip file containing your theme Template layout data in a file called index.html Style information in a file called main_style.css All image files associated with your theme All files must be in the root directory of your zip archive. Any files in a subdirectory will not be imported”

Thanks.

-Ben

RuvenThemes

Hi Ben,

I just looked up Weebly, but it doesn’t seem that you can install WordPress themes on it. What you need is a hoster that lets you install WordPress on its server. Bluehost is a good hoster to start with: www.bluehost.com

Hi I’m thinking of using your theme, which I find very nicely done. I was wondering : - Is it possible/easy to show several images in a single-folio ? Maybe using a slider ? - Is there a way of changing the text appearing below pages’ titles (constant in your demo

Donec nec justo eget placerat fermentum ultrices nulla. Aliquam a lectus aenean dignissim pellentesque felis commodo
)

Thanks in advance Jérome

RuvenThemes

Hi!

You can put several images in a slider, or I can also give you instructions on how to put them below each other. Here is an example with a slider: http://demos2.ruventhemes.com/darkwhite/portfolio/image-gallery/

The text stays constant for portfolio items. Having it editable for every item would just take some quick customization work :)

Thanks for your answer. I bought the theme and started publishing, looks great.

I have a few issues so far : (sorry, I don’t know much about php langage)

  • I can only chose a constant “default page header” in template customization section. I’d like it to simply repeat the page title as you did in the demo, i.e. dynamic header
  • when editing a single folio, screen options do not work properly (e.g. “gallery settings” is ticked “on” but does not appear. One needs to untick it and tick it again). Any idea where it comes from ? Idea of improvement maybe : It would be nice to see images chosen within the “gallery settings” section
  • is there a way to use lightbox (or similar) within single folio galleries instead of a slider ?

thanks in advance for your answers, and thanks again for the good work

Jérome

PS : I use wordpress 3.8.1 (french version)

Update…

  • I found the answer for changing titles (pretty obvious, sorry for the useless question)
  • I’d like to publish self-hosted videos, thouhg I don’t usually use M4V and OGV (rather FLV or MP4). Do you know a tool able to convert them propoerly and/or is there any way to use other formats ?

Thanks

Final update, I guess i’d rather search thoroughly before asking…

I swear that will be last post for today (and I shouldn’t ask much more afterwards)

It leaves me with a single unsolved issue… plus a new one

  • How can I use lightbox in a single folio instead of the default slider
  • Where can I change the “All” filter that appears in portfolio ? I’d rather use French, and I can’t find it in ruven-toolkit/init-portfolio.php

Anyway, after a single-dat work on my website, I can say your work is excellent, and you will definitely get the 5 stars…

Cheers, Jerome

RuvenThemes

Hi Jerome,

Sorry for my late reply.

1. Adding a lightbox is pretty easy. You mentioned you want it “instead of the default slider”. So do you want to keep multiple images (below each other) that would usually be in the slider or are we talking just about one image?

2. Here are instructions on how to translate the theme: http://docs.ruventhemes.com/darkwhite/#translating-the-theme

The “All” filter options can be found in “template-portfolio-filterable.php” on line 26.

Let me know if you have more questions :)

Thanks for your answer

Concerning previous comment (lightbox issue), I installed Lightbox Plus ColorBox which seems to work fine. I’d like to use it on posts with following structure :

  • featured image
  • post extract (incomplete = short text)
  • link “continue reading” such as in the demo, pointing towards the full post, including with lightbox gallery (miniatures and full scale pics)

My question therefore : how do you program the “continue reading” option ? (only part of the article article appears in the blogg section, linked towards the full article) ?

Additionnal question (sorry for asking so much, I guess it ain’t easy) : how do you change size of default images appearing in the blogg and/or portfolio section ?

Thanks (a lot) in advance

Jérome

Dumb PS : how do I rate your theme on TF ?...

RuvenThemes

Hi Jérome!

The “continue reading” button is a WordPress default function. There is no code for that in the theme files other than the activation of the link and the title. You can find an example on line 46 in the file “content.php”. You could change the line to the_content('', true); to get rid of the button. Then you could create one on your own :)

The default image sizes can be changed in the file “functions.php” starting on line 70.

You can rate the theme on”My Account / Downloads”.

Best regards, Ruven

Hi,

how can i put a email capture box in the theme?

Thanks :D

RuvenThemes

Hi,

I assume you mean that you want people to sign up for a newsletter by entering their email on your website? There are a bunch of plugins for that. It depends which newsletter service you use. If you use Mailchimp for example, you have to get the Mailshimp subscribe plugin.

Hi, can I set this up such that in the default 3 column layout, the left column contains posts from Category 1, the middle column contains posts from Category 2, and the right column has a real time twitter feed?

Also, will this theme work with this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-rss-multi-importer/

Thanks!

RuvenThemes

Hi,

There is currently no way to set the columns up like that. This would require certain customizations (http://studio.envato.com/ will be of help with that).

I’ve never used the WP RSS Multi Importer plugin, but if it’s supposed to work out of the box with any theme, then Darkwhite should be able to handle it, since the themes code is based on WordPress best practices and standards.

Hi. Will you be updating this theme for the newly released WordPress 3.9 – my theme customiser seems to have broken (might be due to the new live widget feature)? Thanks.

Default-user

I think jquery.admin.custom.js is causing the issue as the customiser works when this is deleted – hope this helps… :)
