Hello,

It seems like I can not make a blog post without having an image there—if I don’t upload an image there’s a little ‘broken link’ looking thing 250px wide and like 10px tall.

I know the blog looks pretty if all the posts have images, but sometimes I have just a quick tweet-style entry. Which template do I need to modify and what do I need to change so that the image only shows up IF the custom tag is filled in??

Thanks! k.

BrentChesny

Instructions to change this are in here: http://pastie.org/776639 ;)

relatively a nub question, but does this template work with wordpress 2.9 or do I need to download a older version from wordpress.org?

BrentChesny

Yes, it’s compatible with 2.9 ;)

Great theme, thanks for making it super clean. I have two questions. First, on the ‘blog’ page, for some reason the top tagline is not showing. It’s still showing the included text from the original template I downloaded in the Admin area when I edit the ‘blog’ page under ‘Pages’. And second, is there an easy way to make the jquery slider just slide from left to right with the arrows like you see on the first slider version you have pre-installed?

Brilliant work!

I have two questions; First, is it possible to have some kind of image viewer or such on the Portfolio page and second, is it possible to have more portfolio pages (for different galleries) as I’m a photographer and having more photo galleries is just needed.

Thank you for your help in advance ;)

BrentChesny

The portfolio page uses the prettyPhoto jQuery lightbox plugin: http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/ if thats what you mean?

And currently only 1 portfolio page is possible because I mainly focused on the simplicity of the theme.

Theme looks beautiful and I’m eager to get started but two questions (I’m a bit of a novice).

1. I’m getting a message from my server that the Stylesheet can’t be found (it seems to be in the folder when I load the Theme but not showing up).

2. Where can I find basic usage documentation (I checked the documentation that came with the download but didn’t see anything on installation, customizing, etc.).

Thanks!

BrentChesny

Did you by any chance upload the full folder that you downloaded from Themeforest? Because you only need to upload the zipped ‘delericon’ folder inside the ‘Theme’ folder.

Installation instructions are in the Documenation folder.

Ok, I think I’ve got most of it worked out. Forgive the following stupid question but re the slider, I can’t get the image to show. When you referenced the code block did you mean I could add it directly into the WYSIWYG editor or do I need to edit the Home page on the server? Sorry again, but I’m just learning. I tried the editor first and put this in

  • but with or without quotations I’m getting no image, no alt text, nothing. Thanks!

    Disregard, I found the XML file and got it working. Thus far I really love this theme!

    Hi, I’m having some problems in the theme options section. for some reason in every place that i need to pick a category from the drop down menu – i don have any options to choose from.

    its like the theme does not recognize my categories… i use wordpress 2.8

    here’s a screenshot

    On the ‘blog’ page, for some reason the top tagline is not showing.

    Also, is there an easy way to make the jquery slider just slide from left to right with the arrows and none of the other fancy movements?

    Thanks.

    BrentChesny

    Mail me the login details to your backend and I’ll take a look at the tagline.

    As for the slider, it supports a lot of animation effects: http://malsup.com/jquery/cycle/begin.html (see second paragraph)

    Though adding arrows would require some huge alternations to the theme and design.

    I figured out the blog tagline, and was able to change the slider effect, thank you.

    I am now trying to put the latest posts onto the homepage in the last column. I see the widget for blog posts which I added to the non-blog page sidebar, but can I easily add that to the homepage?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello,

    Loving the theme !

    I would like to change the [...] on the Portfolio page to something like [ReadMore] – could you direct me ?

    Thanks.

    BrentChesny

    Yep that’s possible, instructions here: http://pastie.org/778507

    I’m trying to purchase your theme but I’m having issues, is there away you can contact you privately? info@homebasedincome.org

    One more question: I’m using the XML slider and am wondering whether more than three images can be used (e.g. could I in essence copy the XML code for the three and basically repeat)?

    Awesome theme!

    BrentChesny

    Yep that’s possible. ;)

    Ok, the “3d xml slider” isn’t working on my site.

    http://www.fifthrowcenter.com

    I purchased this theme based on the slider. Please contact me on what could be the problem: ryanfarmer@mac.com Thanks!

    Can you activate the Cu3er slider or mail me the login details to your backend?

    Hi. I love this theme. And have read through all the user comments to try and answer my questions but have yet to find a solution.

    Have 2 quick questions:

    1) Why are the Delericon settings only showing on www.wrightsvillesup.com/home instead of on every page including www.wrightsvillesup.com.

    2) Maybe the answer to number 1 will resolve this question, I am unsure of the process for adding the 3D slider and/or JQuery fader. My understanding is that it is already installed as a part of the theme. I just need to add the proper size images to media and go from there. What size image is needed and where do I paste the image file name to complete the process?

    Just wanted you to know I did see this but link is missing.

    XML Slider: Edit the XML file in the template files. jQuery Fader: Edit the content of the ‘Home’ page through the admin panel.(http://easycaptures.com/fs/uploaded/452/5912536867.jpg)

    Really love this theme. My wife (a designer) thinks it’s the most elegant one we’ve come across. Quick question re the new drop-down menus through WordPress: I’m assigning different Portfolio elements (e.g. Logos, Print, Websites) and can’t understand how to segregate the files for each. I’ve created a Portfolio category and then new categories for Logos, etc., and made Portfolio the parent, but in each instance when I assign to the child (Logos, for example) all of the portfolio items are still showing up on the parent Portfolios page as well. www.kilroycreative.com. Suggestions?

    BrentChesny

    That’s because, currently, only 1 portfolio page is possible. I mainly focused on the simplicity of this theme. I will try to release an update in the future to make it possible to create multiple portfolio page.

    Yeah, if you could enable multiple Portfolio pages for different types of services I think you’d have more business than you can shake a stick at. Most folks looking for a Portfolio theme or skin are likely interested in showcasing more than one talent. Nevertheless, we love the theme (and would pay extra for the add’l Portfolio pages).

    Does the slider on the home page have the functionality to link to a specific page. Can you edit this in the admin panel or would you have to make those edits in the code?

    BrentChesny

    Yes it’s possible. For the jQuery slider you can edit it in the admin panel. For the XML slider you need to edit the XML file. ;)

    great. Thanks for the quick reply. I figured you could but you never know until you ask. Great work!

    For the Analytics code box, when I paste my code in there, it adds /// to the code. Will that mess up the ability for Analytics to track this site?

    BrentChesny

    Nope, it doesn’t affect it. I’m working on a bug fix though ‘cause it’s just annoying to have those ///’s there. ;)

    Hi,

    Theme is awesome! But I cant seem to figure out how to edit the 3D XML Slider ;-) I’m a rookie at editing templates. Also, I am having an issue with the the drop downs? I did enable but I can’t click on them even though they do show during hover over. Do you have a link where I can get detailed instructions. The ones in the zip are generic.

    Hi,

    I am using the Google Chrome browser and Firefox. I attached a screen shot http://bdonaldson.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/techsmithwor5e27.png but it doesn’t tell you much. The drop downs do show although I can not click on them. When you try to hover over the drop downs…they close! My site is http://www.comtechone.com “About Us” has the submenu

    It’s probably because your using some plugins, try this:

    Find this code in header.php:
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    Move that line of code right under this line:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

    By golly George, I think you got it! ;-) Moving the code worked perfectly! Good job.

    The theme is Great!!! Is possible to use jQuery slide in other page different from homepage? And 2 or 3 slides in one page?

    Because if i tried to install some plugin for fade (vSlider and Smooth Slider) but sub menu of your theme stopped to work.

    BrentChesny

    To make the plugins work try this:

    Find this code in header.php:
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    Move that line of code right under this line:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

    Hi! I am having the same problem with the drop down menus as bdonaldson. The menus show up fine but in the second I try and navigate from the menu link to a sub-link they disappear. I have tried this on multiple browsers on both Windows and Mac. It’s strange b/c I have no issue with the dropdowns on the live preview site.
