Dont understand why when I try to create a gallery in a post this happens. http://liveinfit.com/2012/08/09/beach-workout/#!prettyPhoto < If you attach a gallery the images should resize on their own and not look like this!

Hi cecilywiggins,

You can adjust vertical images thumbnail display by adding more height in

Admin > Settings > Media > Thumbnail size > Height input box

After setting more height, upload image and test it.

Suggestion for blog page :

It looks your blog post featured images has less width than post image box. You can use square image option from “Featured Image Box” below post editor. Here is preview site example.

Thank you :)

RE: Social Media – I tried the social media shortcode on a page and it looks nothing like the social media in your footer on the demo. http://liveinfit.com/1676-2/ and when I add that same code to a widget in the footer, I get nothing.

Hi cecilywiggins,

You can use ready source code from help file index #16. HTML Source Code > Social Media Icons > [h4] Icons for all sections [/h4]

Add below sample code in footer “Text” widget.


[social_media_widget]

[icon_twitter link="#" title="Twitter"]
[icon_facebook link="#" title="Facebook"]
[icon_rss link="#" title="RSS"]
[icon_linkedin link="#" title="Linked In"]
[icon_delicious link="#" title="Delicious"]
[icon_youtube link="#" title="YouTube"]
[icon_flickr link="#" title="Flickr"]

[/social_media_widget]

Thank you :)

I don’t need help with theme setup, the theme was setup up fine initially and I have read your documentation/help file. BTW – I have never had any vendor deny support and ask that my client respond to you. I can send you the license # if you insist, I am a professional, but I am sure answering the questions benefit you because there will be others that will have the same issue.

Hi cecilywiggins,

Thank you for the verification. ( We received your client’s email. )

We will give all your comments reply in few minutes.

Hi, I have another request from the client. They want to know if it is possible to resize the Recent Work slider. It looks to be set up for placement in a 1/3 column. I think they would like the slider to cover the area for a 1/2 column. This might not be possible, but your level of support suggest otherwise.

Out of all the themes I have worked with, your has the overall best design. Very nice and clean coding too.

Thanks for all your help!

Hi wnhorne246,

You can increase recent work slider width by some changes in style.css > (17) Services Page

In below styes, add more width and then set right padding/margin to more width images. These changes required good skill of CSS .


#content .recent-projects h4 { width:271px; }

#content .recent-projects-slider { width:286px; }

.nivo-caption { width:276px; }

Thank you for your positive feedback :)

I’m afraid I don’t posses very good CSS skills. Is there any way you can give me the code to increase the slider so it would fit in a [one_half]slider[/one_half] column? I don’t know, maybe a 450px width with the aspect ratio unchanged.

After this I promise to leave you alone. I have two more pages to complete for this person and then I hand it off to them. They are really pushing hard for this change before I’m done.

The positive feedback is well deserved!

Recent Work Slider with one half column width

Hi wnhorne246,

You can use below style for one half column Recent Work slider. Image width should be 450px and height is flexible. ( You can add below code in “Custom CSS ” section of “Theme Options” to keep original style safe )


#content .recent-projects h4 { width:435px; }
#content .recent-projects { width:450px;  }    
.nivo-caption { width:440px; }

Thank you :)

Thanks for your help on previous matters. Another thing came up. They are using a newsletter called FitPro and want to use a javascript popup on the first page. When I embed the newsletter popup code on the homepage the popup doesnt work, the slider doesnt show images and testimonial widget fails, displaying all the code. Is there anyway around this?

Softwebmedia

Hi cecilywiggins,

It looks plugin has same variable, function or style name of the theme javascripts which is making conflict. Please try to use another plugin because its difficult to check which variable, function or style name is making issue with the theme java script.

Thank you :)

Does the yelp link shortcode work in the footer widget? I put [icon_yelp link=”http://www.yelp.com/biz/live-in-fit-long-beach-2” title=”Yelp”] and it doesnt appear to work.

http://liveinfit.com/
Softwebmedia

Hi cecilywiggins,

You can check all icon of footer widget shortcodes from this page : http://desire-wp.premiumthemes.in/?page_id=97 >Icons for all sections

If you want to new icon then add 32px x 32px icon image in ../wp-content/themes/desire_wp/images/icons/ folder.

For example “yelp.png”

Now add new icon css style in
shortcodes.css > (16) Social media icons > Social Media Widget

#footer .social_media_widget ul li.icon_yelp,
#content #sidebar .social_media_widget ul li.icon_yelp,
#content .social_media_widget ul li.icon_yelp { 
background:url(images/icons/yelp.png) no-repeat 0 0; }

And then use shortcode

[icon_yelp link=”http://www.yelp.com/biz/live-in-fit-long-beach-2” title=”Yelp”]

Thank you :)

Thank you so much for your help. That worked like a charm. I especially liked the way the tweak was an override to the CSS and not an internal mod. The customer is thrilled.

I am interested in drop down menus utilizing the top menu. I have looked through the help pages in the purchased materials but have not been able to locate information. Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi petersdarwin,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

Please refer help file index #6 WordPress Custom Menus – Add top menu, footer menu and portfolio horizontal custom menus (see “step 5” image in screenshot to display dropdown menu)

This section has full details to create WordPress menus.

You can also refer YouTube videos for menus : click here

Hello, I am not using a plugin, its a newsletter service that the client pays for. Its a part of their marketing campaign, so you can understand that they are not enthusiastic to hear that they cant use the popup embed code with their website and they may want to discontinue use of the theme because of it. Can I give access to the site to see if you can make the code work?

Partial Correction; I do see the 32×32 but the footer and sidebar uses the the smaller circular ones and there’s no yelp icon in that area…

Softwebmedia

Hi cecilywiggins,

Yelp icon is not available in circle icon set and that’s why we added steps to add new icon shortcode in previous comment. You can get help from iconfinder.com site to search “yelp” icon.

Thank you :)

Is there a way to set the featured image so that it does not show up on the single post entry? Or, if not, to adjust the dimensions of the image in the single post entry. I like having the thumbnail in the excerpt and in the Recent Post widget, but the problem I have is the shape of the featured image in the single post page. The images I am using are book covers, so they are vertical, not horizontal. They look okay cropped square in a thumbnail, but I need the full vertical image in the single post page. Thx.

Hi madisonparklove,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can disable featured image/videos from “content-single.php”

Path: ../wp-content/themes/desire_wp/content-single.php

In this file, go to line #37 and you will find below code.

swm_display_post_format();    

Delete this code and featured images/video will not display in post single page.

Thanks! Just what I needed. :-D

I’ve noticed that for the WM-Tab Widget, the “Comments” tab text does not display correctly. It doesn’t display correctly on your demo either. I’m guessing the word “Comments” is too long to fit in the allotted space so it’s getting pushed down to the next line. Can this be fixed? It looks funny.

Softwebmedia

Hi madisonparklove,

We checked in all browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE8 , IE9) and tab widget “comments” text displays correctly. Can you tell us or send us screenshot (from our profile page form) exactly in which browser (with version) you are facing the issue.

Thank you :)

Is there a way to have a portfolio category assign to one page? The site I’m building for has a category called videos and they love the way the portfolio pages give a popup for the videos. I just haven’t found a way to just have videos on one page. I just get every category. Any help would be great.

Create Unlimited Portfolios

Hi wnhorne246,

Please refer help file index #8. Portfolio Setup > Part 2 (screenshot bottom area box “Portfolio Page Options”)

You can create unlimited portfolios by select portfolio categories checkbox. For example, you have 3 categories (category one, category two, category three) and you want to display all three categories in separate pages then first create these three categories. Now add portfolio item and at right sidebar select category and publish it. Add some more portfolio items and select categories as per your requirement.

Now Create new “Page” and give the title (for example “Portfolio 1”), select portfolio template from right sidebar “Page Attributes” box.

Now in “Portfolio 1” you only want to display “Category One” portfolio items then at bottom area box “Portfolio Page Options” select “Category Two” and “Category Three” checkbox. Now in front-end view “Portfolio 1” page, and you will see only “Category One” posts.

This way you can create unlimited portfolios by disable other categories with checkbox.

Thank you :)

I am trying to troubleshoot my home page. Previously, both the Nivo and Skitter sliders worked. Now, neither one shows up. The white backdrop and frame to the slider shows up but no image loads. In addition, a testimonial widget does not cycle through either on the home page. It simply stacks the testimonials on top of each other.

The link for the site is http://www.ruhsmilwaukee.org/home

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi petersdarwin,

It looks you installed any new plugin/script and that plugin’s or script’s javascript is conflict with slider and other jquery scripts. We can fix by making it with noconflict method. Please send us email ( from our profile page form ) so we can give you updated version of this theme which has jquery scripts with noconflict mode.

Thank you :)

OK, I’m in the short rows here. I just handed off this project to the client and they are thrilled. The only problem is the contact form widget is not working. The server that is hosting this site requires SMTP to send and receive email. I have WP SMTP installed and it works correctly with the contact form 7 plugin but it is not working with the built in widget. Do you know how I can get this fixed?

Hi wnhorne246,

Hi there,

Thank you for your help before.

My guy is no longer with me & I’m trying to find someone else to tweak the theme to do what I want it to do.

This guy is saying I can’t do what I want it to do so I want to ask you b/c you know your theme. I thought it would do what I wanted : (

I have 2 boxes on my current site. One is an box with my pic & an audio file. The other is just a box with text in it.

These 2 boxes need to go into those small little boxes on the original themse you see below with the horse, hot air balloon, etc.

They aren’t the right size, so they have to slide out to the larger size from the smaller size.

He’s saying that can’t be done : (

Thank you

Michelle

Softwebmedia

Hi Michelle,

Your programmer is right for adding box below post images. All post images and text are coming dynamically so you can’t add any custom data to any specific post in post listing page. You can add custom date in post single page with html/css format.

Thank you :)

Oh : (

So you are saying it has to be hand coded to look like those squares?

Michelle

Softwebmedia

Hi Michelle

In post listing page you can’t apply any custom work to specific post but in post single page you can add hand coded script.

Thank you :)

Hi there,

I’m sorry, but I’m confused on the differences between those to URLs you sent me. They look almost the same to me & I don’t know what a listing pages is versus a single page.

Can my theme handle coding so I can get someone to do what I want?

Thanks

Michelle

Softwebmedia

Hi Michelle,

Post listing = display all post with image, title and short description
Single Post = display specific post with detail content which has all details and comments

You can add custom coding in Single post.

Thank you :)
