Hello, great looking theme, i have surfed thru hundreds before came to see yours. Good job! Some PRE-purchase question!) I actually need a theme for my postcards portfolio, could I customize it to this purpose? Only pictures on the main page, without any text stuff like blog, and i need these images to be shown correctly – like those vertical are coming vertical, not cut to a square, and those horizontal are coming horizontal, NOT cut images. Is that possible with this theme? Some themes cut the image on the main page up to a square preview, and I do not like this.. is here no problem with that? and how I could customize it this way?

I have purchased this theme and I am happy!) Thank you for support. Still, I have now three issues I can’t handle on my own with this theme… May be you could help me? My site is www.drop-me-a-card.org. On the main page i have the portfolio, and on the page which is called as ‘Your experience’ in the menu I need a separate gallery, or a blog looking one, to show examples of how people may use the cards I am doing. So, again, the main page is the portfolio page, and “Your experience” in the menu should lead to showing the examples of how to use it all. How do I do that? And one more thing – When i click on the main page on any image, it doesnt lead to a full size image then – the page shows smth like “nothing found on this request” or smth like this… I should have done smth wrong there while setting the theme up, probably… Sorry for questions that might be quite easy, but I am a beginner really) Hope to hear from you some support!) the theme is really nice and I do not regret buying it. Very cool one.

if i have to give you some access details for admin area, let me know the email where i should send this.

RuvenThemes

Hi Antonio,

1. If you need to create some kind of manual for using the cards, you could just create a page to describe the process. You can add images, or even a whole gallery and also use the shortcodes (flash icon in the editors toolbar) that come with the RuvenTookit plugin to add columns etc.

2. Please make sure the RuvenToolkit plugin is installed. If you create a portfolio item and you get a 404 error when you try to view the post, please go to “Settings ? Permalinks” and hit the “Save Changes” button. This will cause the ”.htaccess” file to be rewritten and it should fix the issue.

Hello,

Can you help me? I want to add a black background and white font to the entry-titles but not have that style show up on the alternate blog homepage.

I tried

header.entry-header { background-color: black; color: white; } h1.entry-title { color: white; padding-left: 3px; }

But it translates to the home page. I’d like the style on all Entry Headers. Blog, page and portfolio. Let me know if you can help with this.

THANKS! Mario

RuvenThemes

Hi Mario,

I got it to work by tweaking your code a little:

header.entry-header { background-color: black; color: white; } h1.entry-title a, h1.entry-title { color: white; padding-left: 3px; }

Default-user

Hmm, still showing on the homepage of the blog-alternate.

RuvenThemes

Sorry I think I understood you wrong the first time. Here is the updated code:

header.entry-header { background-color: black; color: white; } h1.entry-title a, h1.entry-title { color: white; padding-left: 3px; }

.alt-layout header.entry-header { background-color: white; color: #272727; }
.alt-layout  h1.entry-title a, h1.entry-title { color: #272727; padding-left: 0; }

Hi! Pre-sale questions:

1) Is it possible to have a sidebar (with latest posts, for example) besides an portfolio?

2) Is it possible to keep the “sort portfolios horizontal menu” (above the portfolios) in projects pages?

Thanks in advance and GLWS!

Default-user

Sorry, I’d like to see the sidebar besides a portolio in “Darkwhite” theme, not in “NĂºvellen”.

RuvenThemes

Oh, I’m so sorry! I don’t know why I was in “Nuvellen mode”...

For Darkwhite there is currently no option to have the sidebar show besides a portfolio item. With some customization work it can be done, but the option doesn’t exist out-of-the-box.

I am getting this error too like Jmono23 was getting:

Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/tableorg/public_html/malibuhaus4/wp-content/themes/Darkwhite/includes/theme-customizer.php on line 384

I am using WP 4.0… what would cause this?

RuvenThemes

Hello! Do you have the newest update of the theme installed (version 1.5)? Here are instructions on how to update: http://docs.ruventhemes.com/darkwhite/#updating-the-theme

This might already solve the issue. If it doesn’t let me know :)

Default-user

Yes version is 1.5 already. What else should I do?

RuvenThemes

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,

To extend the functionality of the theme Darkwhite I need to install the Ruven Toolkit plugin. The link sends me to a Whoops pagina on Wordpress.org… By searching Ruven I find 6 other Ruven plugins. I have installed Portfolio, Gallery, Shortcodes and Post formats UI. Do I get the same features the Toolkit would have offered me?

In the meanwhile I have created a portfolio page and two portfolio-items which for some reason will not show. The filter items (portfolio types) do not show either. Can you help me? Thanks,

Meret

I have figured it out myself, sorry to bother you!

How do I activate short codes? I definitely have Ruven Toolkit installed (v2.0), very few other plugins. Cannot find way to create/add short codes. Is there some sort of documentation somewhere?

RuvenThemes

Hello!

With the plugin activated, look for a little yellow flash icon in the toolbar of the visual editor when you edit a post or page. One click on it reveals a menu of all the shortcodes you can insert into your page.

Default-user

No yellow icon there. I will create a login ID for you to see for yourself).

RuvenThemes

Fixed it – see email :)

I changed the max-width of the #site ID, now portfolio grid is not fitting correctly in Safari. The third column of portfolio is floating down to the next row. Chrome and Firefox look fine (on a Mac). Is there a best way to allow #site to have larger min-width? Any known fix for this?

RuvenThemes

Hi Chuckee,

Sorry, I can only give support for the theme as it is and not on customizations. If you make changes to the overall width of the page, you might also have to adjust other elements of the theme such as the width of the sidebar and the corresponding content area (style.css lines 491, 492, 500, 501, 541).

hey,

how can i change the menu text color?

thanks conte

RuvenThemes

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

To set the menu text color:

#site-navigation a { color: orange; }

To set the menu hover/active color:

#site-navigation.default ul li:hover > a,
#site-navigation.default ul li > a:hover,
#site-navigation.default > div > ul > li.current-menu-item > a,
#site-navigation.default > div > ul > li.current_page_item > a,
#site-navigation.default > div > ul > li.current_page_parent > a {
  color: red;
}

Hello, i bought the item and launched my personnal site 3 weeks ago. I’m fine with the design and the general settings. It’s a beautiful and clean theme.

Today , i decided to write to you about another issue i have with SEO. Reading the theme describtion, it is SEO Optimized. I chose however to install the all in one seo plugin to manage. I chose the latest articles page as homepage BUT when i check in google results the last article overide my website description (while i wrote it in the general settings). Can you tell me how to solve that issue without changing my website architecture ? I have a second SEO issue, very strange one : the indexation of my post page by google is using as TITLE for the result the title of the article (normal) and of the website (normal) BUT it ends with the title of another of my article wich is not directly related (not normal and a little dummy).

I know you are in charge of the design but i finally consider that it could be a problem with the “SEO optimization”. Thanks for your help on that 2 specfic issues , i can provide you 2 links of exemples in a private message.

RuvenThemes

Hi Jules,

The theme is SEO optimized in the sense, that the HTML markup is build to be easily readable by search engines and all the proper HTML tags are used. Apart from that the rest is WordPress default, so that plugins should have no problem hooking in.

The theme doesn’t write any meta descriptions or keywords, because dedicated SEO plugins can do a better job on that. Therefor the problems you’re describing are due to an issue with the plugin or its configuration. I suggest you write to the support of the All In One SEO plugin.

Outstanding support for almost two years now. Ruven is a role model for every business owner in the world. Fast, reliable, professional and very knowledgable. And best of all: patient with me asking newbie questions about code and web design.

Thanks again, Ruven!

Wow, thank you so much for your kind words, Julius! :D

Hi Ruven!

Please, help me to completely remove Jplayer script & styles & files from this theme. Have a lot of troubles with it.

Best regards, Alexander

RuvenThemes

Hi Alex,

1. The file media-video.php contains the HTML code for the player and line 134 in the file “functions.php” enqueues the the javascript for the player. If you delete the file and the line jPlayer will be history.

2. The script that adds .embedded-video-wrapper is in the file “js/jquery.custom.js” if you delete or out-comment line 6 it won’t be active anymore. Currently I am working on an update to get rid of it anyway. I will use fitVids instead.

RuvenThemes

Hi Alex,

The update is out now and the .embedded-video-wrapper will no longer bother anyone :)

Hi Ruven!

Thank you very much for a quick response and great support. I’m happy working with you.

Have a nice day.

Hi Ruven,

I’m hoping this is easy to do… 1- on Archive pages, is it possible to have two columns rather than one? 2- on Archive pages, my excerpts aren’t showing up. How to make that work? 3- On my home page, I can’t get the right number of posts to show. I went to Settings -> Reading -> and played around with those options, but nothing happens except to archive pages.

RuvenThemes

Hi Robin!

1. You only have the option to switch from the default layout (1 column with sidebar) to the alternative layout (3 columns, no sidebar) in the customizer.

2. 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?

3. That’s weird, I’d have to take a look into that as well, when I’m logged in to your WordPress installation.

I love the theme. I just installed it on site the the default headlines aren’t coming up – the part where it says solution studio? The portfolio and shortcode ones work after I imported demo data not the other ones.

Also, I’d like to increase the size of the article headers.

Thats not standard behavior. 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?

One more question: how to add Google ads on tag pages? Which theme files should I modify?

RuvenThemes

You have to go into the customizer and check which “Archive Layout” you have selected in the “Blog” section.

If you have “Default” selected, please open the file “template-blog.php”.

If you have “Alternative” selected, please open the file “template-blog-alternative.php”.

In these template files, you can then paste in the following code, that will only be invoked when you’re in a tag archive:

<?php if(is_tag()): ?>
  // ad code here
<?php endif; ?>

Hello, can I use your theme with wp 4.1?

Hello Ruven, I really like your theme! But it came down to installing the Ruven-Toolkit, I found no source to download it :( Cann you tell me where I can get it? Chhers Michael

Default-user

Hi Ruven, I found the download link after a while in a tweet from you … Problem is solved.

RuvenThemes

Hi! I’m not sure if the link I tweeted was the current version of the plugin. You can find a link to the current version in the item description :)

Been using your theme for a while now and I love it, even upgraded to 1.5. My question is what is the optimal image size for full screen portfolio items? All of my images full size appear blurry like they are being resized somehow. Thanks!

RuvenThemes

Hello!

The best image width for portfolio items (where the image appears left and text right) is 728 pixel. If you have a Mac with a retina display, images on the internet might look blurry, because of the high display resolution. To solve this, please install the plugin WP Retina 2x (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-retina-2x/ ) and enjoy your images in HD :)

Default-user

Thanks, what about full width? I have disabled the right column.

RuvenThemes

On a full width page the image would have to be 940px wide. You’d have to change line 70 in the functions.php by changing the number 728 to 940 if you changed the portfolio item template to be full width. After that, please run this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

How do I change top “margin-top”, so the footer menu will have the same space between content and menu like the main menu?

RuvenThemes

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

#site-footer { padding-top: 60px; }
Default-user

That worked – Thank you!

Greetings - wanted to know if there was a customization for Meta Slider - I would like to stream a series of pictures in the banner/header and am having issues getting the slider to do just that….thanks again! Great theme!

RuvenThemes

Hello!

I don’t know what you mean by Meta Slider. The only slider I have in the theme is for galleries. Here is an example: http://demos2.ruventhemes.com/darkwhite/the-japanese-sandman/
