Hi There,

A most excellent template, it is perfect for what I need.

However I have one major problem and that is I can not seem to be able to turn off comments on the pages I have created.

On the pages in question I have ensured that “No, use it as a simple static page” is selected from the dropdown menu under the “display your posts” heading.

Kind Regards,

Jason

pixedelic Author

Hi plewsy,

it doesn’t depend on the theme but on Wordpress. To disallow the comments on a page or on a post, enter the page admin panel, click “Screen options” tab (right top of the screen) and enable the ”Discussion” checkbox. A box at the very bottom of the page will appear, disallow from there comments, trackbacks etc.

To disallow the comments from everywhere, go to Settings -> Discuss and disable the checkboxes you want, but this change will be applied for the new posts and pages only. For the pages and posts you already created, you must do what I said previously.

As I said, that’s not a Delight feature of course, but a Wordpress feature.

Hi, I love your theme but I can´t get the navi on my page. What’s wrong? Please help me. Best Tilman from Berlin

pixedelic Author

Hi Marienova,

I provided some tutorials on the demo site (http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/delight/) and there is a documentation included in the main file you downloaded from ThemeForest.

You must go to Appearance -> Menus, create a menu, put some items into it (you can enable more than the items available by default by clicking on the right top corner of the screen the tab called “Screen options”) and associate the menu you just created with the theme location (left top box). It is a feature of Wordpress, not of the theme.

Let me know

Hi Manuel,

I have one more instance of the photo credits not showing – when creating a new site using multisite: http://www.greenboard.ca/test5/portfolio/promote-fair-trade/

If it’s not possible to correct, the credits do show when I select “slideshow” for the background. I can use this as a work-around if need be.

Thanks, Rob

pixedelic Author

Sorry Rob (for the late reply too…) but I can see the photo-credits… can you show me an example where the photo credits don’t work? Or do I misunderstand?

Manuel

robbiet63 Purchased

hmmm, that’s strange – (and no worries about the response time). For me the photo credits don’t show in the first link, but they do for the second. (The first link shows under Credits “Sorry, there are no info for this photograph.”)

The following may be a silly question, as the linked portfolio items have no credit in the footer, but just to be sure, are you looking at the photo credit in the main column, not the footer? Does the photographer’s name show in the main columns of both links for you?

Thanks, Rob

pixedelic Author

Hi Rob,

http://www.greenboard.ca/test5/a-note-on-greenboard/

http://greenboard.ca/template-en/a-note-on-greenboard/

In both cases the credits are available. Did I misunderstand?

Then, in the portfolio items the credits are display above the comments section: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/tg0y?size=o, but if you prefer you can also add a caption to the image itself.

Manuel

robbiet63 Purchased

Hi Manuel – sorry on my side for not explaining this clearly. The Credits section I speak of is as per your link ( http://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/tg0y?size=o)

If you click here (http://www.greenboard.ca/test5/portfolio/promote-fair-trade/) and scroll down in the main column, you will see the Credit shows as “Sorry, there are no info for this photograph”.

That site (http://www.greenboard.ca/test5/portfolio/promote-fair-trade/) was created from this template (http://greenboard.ca/template-en/portfolio/promote-fair-trade/). As you can see, if you scroll down in the main section on both, the Credits show in the template, but not in the site created from it.

I hope this helps!

Thanks, Rob

Ok Rob,

I see, and I’ll try to release a fix ASAP, sorry for the inconvenient. Could you contact me via email so I’ll send to you a beta version? My email is manu[at]pixedelic[dot]com, remind me who you are and what the problem is in the email.

Manuel, please help—something weird happened to our site at cdt-dance.org. The navigation menu no longer animates the slide-outs unless you click it. This is not good, because then people don’t realize that the text they just clicked on is in itself its on page, as well. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, if you go to our site, hopefully you will see what we do! Thank you!

Hi Manuel,

great theme, I like it verty much. I have two questions:

1. I have trouble loading blog pages with lots of pictures. Text and menu not visible before loading all images, so for this time visitor can see only blank page. Maybe there is a way to load at first menu and text? Example: http://photokubik.com/new/wedding-anna-ruslan/

2. I tried to reduce the height of the footer, but copyright text and navigation arrows have fixed position. How can I move them to the top of footer?

Sorry for my bad english. Thank you!

pixedelic Author

Hi mist_on,

I’m sorry (for the late reply too), but no, there isn’t a way, the menu needs that the page is loaded to calculate some widths…

About the footer: just change its line-height too:

footer {
line-height: 32px!important;
}

Manuel

mist_on Purchased

One more question. How can I change color and transparency of drop-down (black) part of menu: http://photokubik.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/SNAG-0090.jpg

pixedelic Author

Sorry, no way by using the admin panel. But you can go to Delight -> Styles and type:

nav > ul > li > ul li a {
background: rgba(0,0,0,0.5)
}

It doesn’t work with old browsers.

Hello,

Updated the theme to last version and All in one event calendar pro (1.9.1); Now when I click in a event, a get the following error:

PHP Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in E:\home\possanteba\Web\bar\wp-content\themes\delight\functions\lib\pix_functions.php on line 859

some tip??

pixedelic Author

Hi ffpaniago… sorry for my late reply.

Not sure, but I’m afraid it is not compatible with the breadcrumbs. In this case you should disable them in Delight admin panel -> General -> Navigation -> Show / hide breadcrunbs

Hi,

Great theme! I am wondering if for pages is there a way to move the arrow that calls the page up to the left, instead of the right? And possibly to remove the title of the page and just have an arrow?

Thanks, Susannah

pixedelic Author

Hi Susannah,

I’m sorry, but I’m afraid you can’t without hacking the code itself. I tried to find a solution via CSS or the admin panel, but with no luck, I’m sorry. The arrow is in the same container of the title, so if you hide the title you hide the arrow too…

Manuel, sorry, me again—our website is also frequently acting very strange and taking a long, long time to load even though we have not changed the background images and it didn’t use to do this before. Do you have any suggestions? This only started happening recently.

Hello! For a few hours I’ve been trying to post video as the background for a page and have had no luck. I’ve uploaded files from my computer and have had success when uploading hard files from my comp, but not when streaming from an outside location (youtube/vimeo) which is my main priority.

I’ve gone along and embedded as a URL in as many ways possible I can think of, but I cannot get it to work.

pixedelic Author

Hi ashelley,

could you try to set again your FLV video as background and provide the URL of the page with the background not working? I need to see the problem…

Manuel

ashelley Purchased

When uploading an .flv I have no problems, but I’m planning on using video that will be rather large and feel more comfortable streaming it from an outside source. I also plan on having it visible on an iPad and which I don’t think is a fan of .flv. When using an outside source (youtube/vimeo) I’ve used the embedded extension and have also copied and pasted the exact URL. None of them have worked and I’ve tried w/ several youtube/vimeo videos. Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

I also have several other questions that take are less priority, so feel free to answer them at your convenience:

- Is it possible to have one of the Menu buttons lead to a direct download? Let’s say I click on the “Resume” button, is it possible to have it automatically download a .pdf of a resume instead of taking me to a page?

- Can I have the menu buttons disappear upon a page opening up? For example, when I click on the “Acting Reel” page and the background video starts to play, can the buttons disappear so all that’s visible is the the logo in the top left so that there’s less distractions from the video?

- Lastly (and I’m sorry) how would I adjust the size of the font on the Menu buttons? I know you can change the font, but is it possible to change the size?

Thanks so much! The last several questions aren’t as important as the first at the moment and I know it’s alot, but I thank you SO much.

pixedelic Author

Hi ashelley,

I’m sorry, only FLV self-hosted videos are allowed as background. Unfortunately, as you you said, iPads/iPhones don’t support it. But I provided some work-arounds. The best idea would be to disable the background for mobile devices only and replace it with a simple video embedded in the text editor.

I provided some shortcodes to make something visible or not in the mobile applications:

[pix_mobile]Some content to display on mobile (touch screen) devices[/pix_mobile]

[pix_not_mobile]Some content to display on desktop (not touch screen) devices[/pix_not_mobile]

At the same time, the body has got a particular class if you are using a mobile device: body.is_mobile, otherwise the class is body.is_not_mobile (this feature is not compatible with the plugin that caches the code, such as Super Cache and similar, because they show always the same source code, regardless of the device you are using. So for instance you can disable the video on the background for the mobile devices with some lines of code into Delight admin panel -> Style:

body.is_mobile #wide_flash {
display: none!important;
}

Then you can put the video directly in the post content with the condition shortcode:

video shortcode[/pix_mobile]

(menu button) you can upload a PDF onto your server and then paste its URL in a custom button in the menu (in Settings -> Menus there is a box below “Theme locations” called “Custom link”)

(facebook on a page) you can enable the share section in Delight -> Blog -> Pages -> Show share section in pages

(button that disappear) no, sorry, you can’t, there isn’t any feature in Delight that allows that

(font size) the font size the menu is customizable from Delight -> Typography -> Navigation

Hi Manuel,

Thank you so much for the detailed response. It was extremely helpful, although I’ve ran into a few other issues in addition to not explaining myself w/ for one of them very well. I’ll outline to make it simple:

- PORTFOLIO… I’m having trouble creating an image portfolio that looks EXACTLY like the one you have listed in your sample site located in the following path: Portfolio > Wide Gallery. And if possible, can you have it go directly to that page w/ out having using Second Levels? Note that what I have up now is a crude attempt.

- SITE LOADS VERY SLOWLY… I know my site probably loads extremely slow b/c it’s probably loading all of the content on the site before being able to use it. I’m sure a lot of it has to do w/ the fact that I have an FLV (and not an outside source) as a background for one of the pages. I noticed your sample page has a video and a ton of files, but loads VERY quickly. If you need to check it out what I’m talking a/b, the page is located at michaelgucciardo.com

- LOGO… I also noticed that the logo disappears when clicking any page outside of the Home Page. Kind of weird.

I’m so sorry for the extreme detail. I’m just trying to explain this as best as possible. You’ve been very helpful thus far and I can’t thank you enough

ashelley Purchased

Oh! Sorry.. Lastly, when enabling a menu button to download a PDF, how do I direct it to open an outside window and not in the same browser window?

pixedelic Author

Hi ashelley,

about the icons: the icons on the top can only refer to the site, they can’t be the “like” buttons or the “tweet” buttons, also because Facebook (for instance) doesn’t allow to customize the design of the the “Like/Share” button. If you want to add an icon on the social bar on the top of the page: the icons on the header are Cufon elements, it means I created a font (dingbats) that replaces some letters with a social icons, so you can change their color according with the text color. If you want to change them you must upload your own set of icon and edit the file called header.php, from line 455 to 470. this requires a good skill in html, php and css.

To create a portfolio item just follow the video tutorial: http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/delight/how-to-create-a-portfolio/ To display a gallery with the same layout I used for the “Wide gallery” example, go to Delight -> Portfolio -> The name of your gallery and select “Wide page” in the first field called “Template”.

Slow site: the first image of your background slideshow is about 5MB… please optimize the images of your slideshow, I use images of 250KB in the demo site.

The issue about the logo: replace this code into Delight -> Styles:

height: 500px!important;
text-indent: -9999px!important;
width: 600px!important;
}

with this:

height: 500px!important;
text-indent: -9999px!important;
width: 600px!important;
}

To open a link in a different window you can use the attribute target with the _blank property ( http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_a_target.asp ) or, if you add the link by using the button available in the TinyMCE editor, just check the checkbox: https://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/d8q1?size=o

Thank you for your patience and getting back to me so quickly.

Following the video tutorial gets my page to look like the following, even when I have “WidePage” selected in the admin panel: http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/delight/gallery/one-column-gallery/

What I’m trying to achieve is what you have here: http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/delight/gallery/wide-gallery/

Where it has no white background and is just the floating images. I think it has something to do with galleries and image tags, but I can’t figure it out. Am I to create a separate Portfolio for each section like you have.. “Morocco”, “Italy”, “Inida”, “Thailand”, etc?

pixedelic Author

Hi ashelley,

maybe the best way to help you is enter your admin panel… can you provide via email (manu[at]pixedelic[dot]com) the details to enter your admin panel please? Remind me in the email who you are and what the problem is.

Hi Manuel,

Thanks again for the great work and the support. Since I’ve updated to the news Delight version, I’ve got some issues with the social bar (links are not available on icons and the description I’ve put just near them isn’t visible anymore). Here is the site updated : http://www.sensationocean.com and this is where we worked before the update (links & description in the header) : http://pepperjobs.org/sensation/

Do you have any idea what might be the problem ? Thank you very much.

Best, Lloyd

pixedelic Author

Hi Lloyd,

if the text was a change to html of the file header.php, of course you must repeat the change each time you update the theme, otherwise the old files are simply replaced by the new ones.

About the social links: I’m afraid you touched something in the html (is that possible?), and I’m afraid you forget to close a div, please check.

Manuel

PepperOnly Purchased

Hi Manuel, You are right for the phrase in the header.php The links problem are due to css problems. I’ve got really strange issues with them. It looks like the site won’t load correctly the Styles panel in the admin. I’ve got weird behaviors… I took back the styles I put in the development styles but it doesn’t do the same thing at all in the new one… On the server I’ve got style.php and style_2.php (?) and even there, the results are not correct. When I look with the Chrome inspector, there is a css_include.css listed as an image ? Can it be a corruption problem or something ? In the old one, there was a “style.php” but no css_includes.

Any idea ? (Maybe I could be clearer by email with images…) Thank you very much Lloyd

pixedelic Author

Hi PepperOnly,

on Delight -> General -> Scripts there is a field called “Put your custom CSS inline”. If you switch it off, Delight will use style_2.php to generate a static file called “css_include.css”, otherwise it will use a php file called “style.php”. The first solution can assure faster performances, but not all the server allow it.

Hi Manuel,

were having some issues. Since upgrading the full sized image is now cropped on the sides, previously it stretched the whole screen. The other issue we have is our client uses a screen of 1024×769. When he does the main header is much bigger and the posts section is off screen and needs to be scrolled to see…. he is not happy about this. Can you suggest anything? I can send the URL in a PM.

pixedelic Author

Hi danoli,

please, go to Delight -> General -> Slideshow and check that the switch called “Fit portraits” is off, then save.

About the screen resolution… I’m sorry, but Delight has been built for big monitors, as many other fullscreen themes that time. However the layout fit a small resolution too, such as 1024×768, as you can see: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/02d4?size=o... I can’t do much more than this, I’m sorry.

Hi Charles,

the site background is a simply CSS2 background, it doesn’t fit the screen, it doesn’t change its size with the monitor resolution. The wide bg does.

Hi charlesvvalk,

unfortunately I didn’t provide the ability to brand the login page, I’m sorry. I’m afraid the only way is to physically change the image on your server: delight/images/custom-login-logo.png
