I can’t seem to customize the theme any longer now that I have updated Wordpress to 3.9. Help please.

RuvenThemes

Please update Darkwhite to the newest version to fix the problem. Here are instructions: http://docs.ruventhemes.com/darkwhite/#updating-the-theme

HI!

I am very excited about using this theme for my personal/portfolio site. Amazing job on the theme!!! One quick question/issue.

Most of the videos I am embedding are getting cut off at the bottom, I’m using a player from nytimes.com (where I work). I’m using embed code from the nytimes.com website. What’s the best way to fix this. Here’s a link to the page: http://justinsablich.com/?p=814

A assume it’s something simple. thanks in advance!

RuvenThemes

Hi!

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

.embedded-video-wrapper {padding-bottom: 72%; }

That should do the job :)

Default-user

Yep, that did it!! thanks for the fast response, best of luck !!!

Hey Rouven,

I just updated to 1.5 and I have some probs with the theme since several weeks. The Update didn’t help.

1. The Alternate-View only shows 2 columns instead of 3 http://daslebenistmeinponyhof.digital-dictators.de/category/auto/

2. Sidebare content is shown at the bottom of the sidebar in Blog-View http://daslebenistmeinponyhof.digital-dictators.de/

3. The “read more” link isn’t shown in the Alternative-View http://daslebenistmeinponyhof.digital-dictators.de/category/auto/

Do you have an idea how I can fix that? I already deactivated the child-theme and deleted the custom CSS-code – didn’t make a difference

Hi!

I’m using chrome and can’t see the oroblems on your webste that you’re describing in 1 and 2. Which browser are you using?

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?

Hello,

Since updating wordpress my wp canvas plugin isn’t working properly with darkwhite on new posts. It’s always worked great before. I even updated the plugin with no joy. :(

I’ve tried to contact the plugin people for support but haven’t heard back. Is this something you might be able to fix?

Thanks,

RuvenThemes

Hi!

Sorry, I never used the Canvas plugin and can’t help you with that.

Did you update Darkwhite to the newest version though? If the issue is due to a compatibility issue with WP 3.9 updating might help.

Hello,

Still digging the theme. Love it. Do you suggest any plugin’s for using advertisement blocks?

Thanks, MaroneSJ

RuvenThemes

Hi! I’m glad to hear you’re still liking the theme :) Unfortunately I have never used any advertising plugins with the theme and can’t be of help with that. But this here seems to look alright: http://wordpress.org/plugins/ad-widget/

Hi Ruven,

Quick question: How can I display tags rather than categories as post-meta data? And is there a way to stack the post-meta data rather than having them next to each other?

Thank you! I rated your theme 5 stars :)

Default-user

Hi Ruven, I’m not sure why they aren’t stacking? my site is robinglover.net/blog

Default-user

Ohhh, hmm. now they are stacking, but only when I install the child theme you sent me and use it as is. When I integrated the changes into my child theme it didn’t work.

RuvenThemes

Hi! If you want to integrate the code from my child theme into your own child theme, you just have to copy the custom function I have in the functions.php into yours, and then copy the two lines of CSS from the style.css into your own as well :)

great work!

does you provide html version?

thanks!

RuvenThemes

Hi! Unfortunately there is no HTML version of the theme. However, you could get the WP version and then make you own HTML version with the app “SiteSucker”.

Hi!

I am having issues with the Portfolio. I’ve tried everything and cannot get my Portfolio items to display on the Portfolio page. I have created three portfolio items so far. I have installed the toolkit and followed all instructions in the documentation and have read through all the comments. I’m stumped!

I created an admin account for you and sent you an email.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

RuvenThemes

Hi!

You just forgot to give the portfolio items a featured image. Once you put one in, the item will show up :)

Default-user

ohhhhhhhhhhh :) Thank you!!! your customer service is really amazing. So fast! thanks again.

Me again :) Is there a simple way to get the portfolio items to show up on the main blog as well without duplicating them as regular posts?

Default-user

nevermind on this, I’ve worked around it, thanks!

Hello, It seems that I have the same kind of problem as roberthaskin. I updated wp to 3.9.1–fr_FR and the customize theme page doesn’t respond anymore. A error message appears: Creating default object from empty value in wp-content/themes/Darkwhite/includes/theme-customizer.php on line 384

Do you have an idea how to fix this ? (I did install the update of the theme as you explained to roberthaskin). Thank you very much for your help!

Hello,

Since upgrading to Word Press 3.9.1, no portfolio items are populating content.

My portfolio page: http://tiltmodearmy.com/trials-and-tribulations/

The first two portfolio items are different, Tiltmode Episodes – Halbaville aka Wesside #31 is a portfolio item, Tiltmode Episodes – Mega Old Man #30 is a page. You’ll see that the first one shows now content.

Also, when I am editing a portfolio item, and click to preview, nothing is found.

Can you help?

Thanks, Mario

I manually edited many of the themes original php files. Well not many but quite a few, but single portfolio, template-blog-alternative, single-post, etc…will updating to the new theme overwrite? Can I simply move those files to the childtheme that you had provided to me to help fix another visual issue that I had sometime back?

RuvenThemes

Hi! Yes, updating will overwrite the files, but you can simply put them in the child theme and this will prevent your changes from being overwritten.

Hi!

I use Co-author + plugin and would like to display two authors in post meta. In my old theme I used this code:

<?php if ( function_exists( ‘coauthors_posts_links’ ) ): ?><?php coauthors_posts_links(); ?><?php else: ?><?php the_author_posts_link(); ?><?php endif ?>

Could you help me to implement this code to your perfect theme?

Best regards, Alexander Grishin

RuvenThemes

Hi Alexander!

I wrote a child theme for you and implemented the code. Please install and activate this child theme: http://cl.ly/X580 (but leave the original theme installed).

alexgrishin

Thank you! I already use child theme for customization and just put code from ------------ /

/ Post Meta

into my function.php and now I have two authors.

Hello,

I have comments enabled on my site but they are not showing up on the Portfolio Video pages. Can you help? I am on WP 3.9.

Mario

Example page: http://tiltmodearmy.com/portfolio/city-hall-rockin/

RuvenThemes

Hi!

Comments are not supported by portfolio items by default. To change that, please go into the file “Darkwhite/includes/ruven-tootlkit.php” and add a new line after line 45 and insert the following:

‘comments'

Hi!

I used this custom php code to display scheduled posts in sidebar widget:
<?php query_posts('posts_per_page=10&post_status=future'); ?>
<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
<h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
<span class="datetime"><?php the_time('j. F Y'); ?></span>
<?php endwhile;
else: ?><p>No future events scheduled.</p>
<?php endif; ?>
This code works well on my previous theme however, on DarkWhite this code conflicts error with DarkWhite footer navigation.

Could you, please, point me out what is wrong?

Best regards, Alexander Grishin

alexgrishin

Was duplicated, deleted.

RuvenThemes

Hi Alexander!

It’s bad practice in general to use the function query_posts (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/query_posts ). I recommend to use WP_Query (http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query ). This might already solve the problem as it does not alter the default query.

alexgrishin

Thank you, you are right!

FEATURE REQUEST!!!

Allow infinite scroll in the blog alternate layout! That would be awesome.

Thanks, Mario

I’ll think about it :)

Hi!

Could you please tell me how to:
  1. Insert button short code into theme files with PHP?
  2. I can add additional button color (I have a child theme)?

Do you have short code cheat sheet? I don’t use Visual mode when compose post and I’d like to insert short codes in Text mode.

Appreciate you help.

Best regards, Alexander Grishin

RuvenThemes

Hi Alexander!

1. Yes, here you go http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/do_shortcode :)

2. What would easily be possible, is to just give an existing button another color, by overwriting the button’s CSS code in the style.css in your child theme.

3. There is no cheat sheet, but you could just switch to text mode, insert all shortcodes and save them in a text file, to make your very own sheet :)

Hey Ruven,

I thought it used to be that you could choose the number of posts that appeared on the front page. Did this option disappear or am I looking past it? I would like people to be able to just keep on scrolling through the posts until the very first one.

Thanks!

RuvenThemes

Hi Janno!

Please go to “Settings > Reading” and enter a higher number of blog posts to show on the blog page.

The other thing you’re talking about is called Infinite Scroll. My new theme has it integrated and I might add it to Darkwhite at a later point.

Hey Ruven,

I’ve been playing with the CSS code to make some minor tweaks to the theme but there are some things I just can’t figure out or can’t find in the css file.

1. Can I remove the gray 1px line under the site-title but keep the short black lines underneath the active page?

2. I wanted to change to border-bottom in the page header to 1px. I also changed the border-top line of the post entries to 1px. However it results in a double line with a 1px space in between. It seems the border-bottom of the page header is 2px lower than the border-top line of the post entries. Can I line them up?

3. Seperators between meta-data in posts or portfolio types on the portfolio page are dots. Can I change them to for example a slash or a vertical bar?

4. Links (Pages in menu or meta-data in posts) are gray and change to black when you hover over them. Where can I change them to be black and go to underlined when hovered?

Thanks!

Hey Ruven!

Many thanks for the answers. Worked like a charm! Couple of questions though :)

I succeeded in changing the bullet to a vertical bar, except on the portfolio page between the portfolio types. You know a quick fix?

I changed all links to black and made them go to underlined when hovered with “text-decoration: underlined”. For the menu I used “text-decoration: none” since the current page item already has a line beneath it. Problem: The site title gets underlined also. Can I make an exception for it with custom CSS code?

PS: apparently I hadn’t rated yet, fixed that :)

RuvenThemes

Hi Janno!

1. In the file “template-portfolio-filterable.php” you’ll find the string “•” again on line 28, that you can replace.

2. Sorry, I totally missed the part where you said you wanted to underline the links. To keep the site title from getting underlined on hover, please use this code snippet:

#site-title a:hover { text-decoration: none !important; }

PS: Thanks for the rating! :D

Sure thing :) If you haven’t installed a custom CSS editor plugin, please install this one here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-css-by-dev7studios/

In the custom CSS editor (Appearance > Custom CSS), please paste in the following code:
.single-format-standard .entry-featured-media { display: none; }

Hello,

Since upgrading to Wp 3.9 and using the v 1.5 template, I noticed that I no longer have the option to adjust the ‘Page Template’. I recall that being an option before. Such as ‘Full Page’ etc.

Let me know what you think.

Mario

RuvenThemes

Hi Mario!

You should be able to adjust the page template only for pages (not for posts or portfolio items).
