Hey, it’s me again.

I was the one that had problems with the galleries, as they didnt crop correctly resulting in messy looking galleries.

I did a complete server wipe and reinstall, making sure that wordpress is allowed to write files anywhere on the server, fixing the permission issue. Now I tried again and I still get the same issue, it still doesn’t crop my images.

here’s a link: http://apuesto.eu/?portfolio=grg4-schulball-2014

also tried it using sliders instead of thumbnails, but then there’s a problem with portait oriented images being far bigger (in height) and all the images not being cropped to the same height, and i havent figured out how I can fix this (bye uploading portrait and landscape images in different sizes), seems like it just stretches them if they are too small.

here’s a link to that gallerie (same images): http://apuesto.eu/?portfolio=grg4-schulball-2014-2

any ideas?

thanks, Felix

Hey Felix, the only thing I can possible think of for you to try is use a different theme. If images aren’t being cropped still it’s just a server related issue. From there though I wouldn’t know what you could do sorry. Jesse

Hello!

I have a seemingly simple but frustrating issue. On the filter buttons in portfolio view, I would like to have them against a solid background, as opposed to being transparent and with a border around them (as in the original template). I was able to make the button background #fff, but I am not able to manipulate the hover settings.

This is the page url: http://galiglass.com/new/?page_id=127

I have looked through the CSS so many times, but I am only finding one set of references to the buttons:

/* Palette 2 */ .vk_palette2_button_fx_1 .palette-2 .button, .vk_palette2_button_fx_1 .palette-2 .button.noHover:hover, .vk_palette2_button_fx_1 .palette-2 .visual-button { border-bottom: 1px solid rgba(0,0,0,.2) !important; color: #000000;

I need to set the button to not have #fff text when not hovering. rather, I need it to always have #000 text, for example. using a live css editor, i am able to see the “color: #ffffff” that affects the text color, but i cannot find this in the actual CSS!

see the bottom right corner of this screenshot for clarification:

I would appreciate any help! thank you :)

Hi Julian,

Why not just use the settings provided in the theme customiser? Depending on what palette you are using there are button settings for a lll that. It’s not apart of the style.css because it’s created elsewhere and depending on the customiser settings.

Or have you been using the customiser and it’s not updating?

Hi someone can help me? i would reduce the height of the panels in the home page. Is it possible trought css? someone can give me the instruction to do this? thank you!

visualkicks

HI there, the Panels don’t have a set height, they just go as tall as the content within them. You can turn the padding off via the panel settings while editing the panel though.

But generally, there is no set height. If you want to reduce the height you can but then the content would leave the panel.

If you want to send a link and specifically tell me what you need I might be able to give you some small CSS.

Best Regards, Jesse

this is the site www.parigirando.com and the images in the home page panels are very big i would just reduce it a little bit (the image of the panels thake all the screen).

Default-user

Hi if you can see in the site the panels are very big and the content i think can not leave from the images in the panels…. i just wnat to reduce a little bit the height…..

visualkicks

You could use some CSS to alter the padding slightly, but like I said I think the better solution would be to reduce your font-size… Big font sizes generally have a negative experience for mobile users. Give this a try, its not tested so you might need to tweak it etc.

.mainPageTitle div.container {
padding-top: 20px;
padding-bottom: 20px;
}

Hello!

How your theme works with latest wp 3.9.1?

visualkicks

Hi Sam, a patch was put out just last week to support 3.9.1. Thanks for letting me know I need to update the supported list on the item page.

Hi there,

Apologies if this has already been asked. I have portfolio posts where I have a lot of content, for example a video and multiple images. Say I make it a video post, any way I can add another section like a slider gallery just below?

Like panels, but inside a portfolio post.

Thanks, Malin

visualkicks

No sorry, the post is broken into two sections, the media and the content. Each post format has room for only 1 item in the media section. IF you want images as well as a video the images will need to be included in the content.

Hi, so i can just follow the update steps and then i will not lose any settings? I would like to update but if it goes wrong i’ll have a lot of work! Hope to hear from you,

thanks!

visualkicks

Correct. You will see typography changes as we added a whole new type section. So after you update, go into the customiser and configure those settings. Jesse

Hello! Thank you for your great and easy to use theme.

Please, How to translate the theme using the default.po file?

Grea honor!

visualkicks

If you want to do it the right way, please follow the instructions set out by WordPress – http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress

Alternatively you can paste this – http://snippi.com/s/cdg58wg – into your functions.php file then save over the default.po file on your server after you have translated it with poedit.

Hi guys,

Thanks for great job you do. I bought clipboard and now dimple. After buying dimple I noticed it uses portfolio items instead od blog. What shoud I do to have a grid organized page with blog posts instead of portfolio items? Pinterest style kind of.

Thanks Bartosz

visualkicks

Hi Bartosz!

Sorry to say, the portfolio template will only recognise portfolio posts. The two themes are fundamentally different in that regard. Blog posts will only ever show up on the blog. You may need to contact a developer and have them build you a new template similar to the portfolio but for the blog. If thats not an option you could try and contact Themeforest and have them issue a refund?

Hi there,

it’s probably to dumb to ask, but I can’t get video (Youtube) to work on the homepage.

I’ve tried it via shortcodes, via the iframe embed code and via the Panels (standard/audio/gallery/video), but the best I get is a text-link that directs me to the video… What I want it to be is a clickable direct playing movie on the homepage, just like the examples in your theme.

Any help on this would be very welcome.

Thanks, Stefan

visualkicks

Youtube and Vimeo videos are not compatible with WordPress’s video short code unless you install a plugin. Im sure of it.

If you have a panel, set it to video post format and place the embed code that you receive from youtube in the appropriate text box (not the content window). You can place it into the content window if you want, but depending on your settings (post excerpt settings) it will only come through as text.

Other then that, I can’t really help you without a link to your site sorry.

Regards, Jesse

- Nevermind, I was too hasty – the mails did show up finally, just took a while.. – Sorry to have bothered!

Another problem I ran into: the contact form doesn’t seem to work. It gives the ‘message sent’ message, but no mail going anywhere. I’ve read this forum and adjusted the ‘send.php’ as suggested – but no change in result.. I’ve got to have the site up and running this friday – so please help?

You’re running the latest version of the theme stefan? It requires a full theme file update (as in all files). Let me know. Jesse

Hi there I have noticed on the top bar of my browser there is always a little dash ( – ) which I cant get rid of. I want the top bar to be like this:

The Creative Portfolio Of Thomas Parker.

Also is there a way of getting rid of the Favicon completely.

Thanks.

visualkicks

Hi Thomas,

1) You can either install an SEO plugin or edit the header.php title tag. If you do install an SEO plugin most plugins require you to remove the title tag in the header.php any way though. So editing the header would be a requirement either way.

2) No sorry, all browsers will include a favicon. If you do not set one it will be the default browser specific icon (usually some kind of file icon).

Jesse

Where about am I looking at to edit the title in the header.php? i have no idea what to look for.

visualkicks

The title tag, so it will look something like this. This is obviously an example, there will be php within it which you can choose to remove, or change. It’s up to you.

<title>title goes here</title>

Jesse

Default-user

cant find it :/ i dont do coding so its confusing aha.

visualkicks

If you use some kind of a text editor you can use the find function and search for title? Or even in the browser cmd + f etc.

Jesse

Its okay I got someone to fix it for me. Thanks anyway for the quick response as always.

Hello!

Recently all of the images I add as featured items are kind of blurry. Does this have to do with the image size and resolution? The thumbnail looks like and clear but changes when you go to the actual portfolio page.

Here is an example:

http://www.soulimaginaries.com/portfolio/nectar/
visualkicks

Hi there,

The image is 605px wide but for some reason it’s being squished down 1px to 604px, which is why it’s looking slightly blurry. It looks like the border is the problem. This will need to be patched if it’s happening on everyones site, for now though, perhaps this solution will work. Place this into the custom css area in the theme customiser.

div.content-block.media-standard {
min-width:605px !important;
}

Good Morning there is an option to display the author’s name of the articles ? thank you!

visualkicks

Hi Simone,

If you mean the blog page no. You will need to place some html and use the author php functions that WordPress provide in their codex.

If you mean the post page yes, you can choose to include the author badge on every post below the article. Theme Customiser > General Settings.

Jesse, I’ve read thru a few of the comments about the shortcodes plugin not being compatible with WP v3.9.1. Was wondering if you could tell me a little more about that. Thanks for your help. Cheers
