Hi there, is there a way to display a panel at a certain height. As i want to put an image in at 2000×400 but want it to display exactly at this height & width

visualkicks

You need to place the image “Inside” the panel. Background images have no effect on the size of an element. Take for example an image that is 100px by 100px, it will just ‘tile’ itself behind the element forever.

Perhaps create a panel that is a slider and use the image as a slide? Or just insert the image directly into the content window and take the slide padding off?

Hi Jesse,

I tried these but it doesn’t seem to work, I think I might be doing something wrong, could I email you with Screenshots or provide the login details so you can have a look?

Thanks

visualkicks

Screen shots would help yeah. If you want me to log in and see what you are doing you can email me via my profile page here on themeforest.net :) J

Seems to be working now, sorry!

Hi again sorry to trouble you, I’m going to remove the third party light box plugin but I have a question I need the correct settings ( what to set the pages up as and so on) I sort of understand it’s a portfolio set up. For example I would like my designs on each pages to act like and to make it work as the live demo you have specifically the “image hover background setting” and how to achieve that effect and the effect when you click on it. I have a testing enviroment set up but can’t achieve those effects mainly because I dont know how or what settings to change. Thanks in advance for your time.

So, you want

  • 1 portfolio page that lists only mixtape cover portfolio posts
  • 1 portfolio page that lists only single cover portfolio posts
  • 1 portfolio page that lists only logo portfolio posts

To do that create 3 pages, give them all portfolio template, in the portfolio settings metabox select project to use. Example, for mixtape select to show only portfolio posts from the mixtape project. Repeat this for the other two pages.

Now any portfolio post you create that is in the mixtape project will show on the mixtape page. Same goes for other projects.

Regards Jesse

Yes! I finally got it to work at http://graphikwolverine.com/staging/portfolio/mixtapes/ with the cool effects and all but one question is it possible to set it when people go to graphikwolverine.com/staging/ for it to go to that (http://graphikwolverine.com/staging/portfolio/mixtapes/) as the Mixtapes page will be the home/default page for graphikwolverine.com/staging/ when someone visits? Thanks

Hey! You mean when they click the menu link? You can make menu links go wherever you want (appearance > menus).

If you mean actually altering the link in the URL you will need to use url rewriting by editing your .htaccess file. There are many tutorials online on how to do this.

Hi. Thanks for a great theme. I have a problem with not being able to see the CSS code that you refer to when one want to copy the appearence of a demo page. I do as you describe: - Enter test drive mode - Click the CSS button - Navigate to the desired page (in ny case http://themeforest.net/item/dimple-multipurpose-creative-agency-theme/5641547?ref=visualkicks ) - Click the update arrow button But all I see is the standard message, i.e.

Custom CSS area - your css will be placed after the theme output css in the header - update and preview your code by toggling the css button in the toolbar - feel free to delete this note at any time

It simply doesn’t change whatever I do or change in the left hand customizing field. I’ve tried the same thing in all three major browsers. What do I do wrong? Kind regards, Johan

Hi Jesse. Sorry for the link. I should have been this one, http://demo.visualkicks.com/?theme=Dimple and then any page under Projects > All Projects. But it actually concerns just any page under Dimple’s Test drive. The CSS button or its text field doesn’t generate any code even if I customize and hit the reload button next to the CSS button. If I go to Crush I can see the CSS code, on this page for example: http://demo.visualkicks.com/?theme=Crush But on Dimple there is nothing below the info text. Very weird, is it my computer (latest Mac OS)?
Default-user

Hi Jesse, any idea why I cant see the CSS code?

visualkicks

Hi there, sorry for the late reply (I’m on holiday).

The links above don’t work (because you were in the preview iframe). But I think I understand what you are saying so no problem :)

I see where the confusion comes into it. Basically there has never been any custom css provided for any dimple demo and what you are seeing is what you are meant to see. I thought you posted this comment on the crush theme, because you referenced above.

So in saying that I don’t see what the problem is. What I think is happening is you think that you can get the css from a page in the test drive? Thats not how it works though, the documentation references the css area for “sitewide” changes. Theres no such thing as page specific css.

Do you have a link to your site? It might make it much easier to take a screen shot of what you are trying to get your page to look like.

Jesse

Hi i need help with my website i keep getting malware through the theme.

visualkicks

Hi, can you please elaborate? We don’t use anything but core wordpress functions, so I would check your plugins installed and check who they are made by. I would also then check what security your hosting implements. Let me know, Jesse

When I change the title type in pages to anything except custom. My title section turns to “O No, your lost!” Also, I cannot find the boxes (widgets) my dimple is a simple blog layout for the home (front page). The page with the widgets all disappeared. I am having a very hard time with this theme. Please help.

Default-user

Thanks Jesse! Also I have couple of questions regarding the theme.. I set up the portfolios to be my home page. I want to create pages under each portfolio… is this doable? If so, how would i be able to? What is a panel and a project?

Default-user

so…. for example. I have a portfolio called Mexico.. I want child portfolios inside the parent portforlio (Mexico) such as Cabos, Tulum, etc. Please let me know.

visualkicks

Hi, I’m really sorry I missed this comment. I came back from holidays last week and thought I got through them all!

1) So you want to click on a portfolio post from “Mexico” that will go to second portfolio page called “Cabos”? Unfortunately that isn’t possible with how the links are setup. The link from a portfolio post will always go to the post it self.

Regards, Jesse

Hey very keen to buy the theme but my dev has pointed out that mobile detect doesn’t seem to work on an iPhone 5s + iOS8.1.1 Fine on iPhone6 iOS8.1.2. This is via the demo link obviously:

http://cl.ly/image/433W1T1T230c http://cl.ly/image/2y1x0V0E1w3J

Any thoughts? Know issue soon to be fixed?

visualkicks

The image above where it isn’t working is because the site is within the “demo” iframe. Just close the iframe and it should work correctly :) Naturally your site wouldn’t be in an iframe.

Mobile devices aren’t the best when it comes to resizing iframes.

Ah, how embarrassing. Thanks for taking the time to reply. :)

visualkicks

No problem! You had me worried for a minute there :)

Hi Jesse,

I’m another one that is relatively new to Wordpress sorry! Love the theme and having a great time setting it up thanks.

A quick, very basic question, I’m setting up your theme on a mac running wordpress on Bitnami. Just having an issue with none of the header styling showing up correctly. I add my text in the editor and apply a heading style, eg. heading 2 and then when I view my site there is no change to the appearance of the text. I can change the text colour and that works but not the styles they all just look like te general paragraph style.

Any suggestions? I have all my fonts and things set up on my theme customiser. I haven’t touched any css as yet but I running a child theme.

Thanks so much.

Lauren

Hi, I’m going to need a link to your site and maybe a specific page. I can check the style that is being applied in the web console and hopefully understand whats happening :)

Hi Jesse,

I’m interested in displaying a random logo with each page visit/refresh. I’m comfortable digging into the code to make this happen. Thoughts on how to make this happen?

Thanks, Dustin

visualkicks

Hmm, you would need to code up a little storm to be honest.

In the header.php where the logo output is handled, maybe create a php array of images and then use a php random array key select function to select one of them? Theres probably a bunch of other ways to do it, but that seems like the most forward… In saying that its a development process so there isn’t any real ‘step by step’I could give you sorry. I would recommend hiring a developer to create a plugin for you to use instead :)

Regards, Jesse

I have an issue with a searchbar in the header of my site. It works fin in chrome and firefox but not in IE. IN IE the word search is cut off by the bottom of the box. The site is brooksinsurance.com . Any help or suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

visualkicks

Hi, what version of IE are you looking at the site in? I can’t seem to see what you are talking about on your search page. Although, there are some strange artefacts on your site happening. Im not sure why that would be the case, do you have any 3rd party plugins installed?

Regards, Jesse

Hi Jesse,

A few of my featured images on the home page are starting to display at a small thumbnail size. I’ve searched the comments section and user gblatt89 had the same issue to which you supplied her a max-height line of code for the mainHeader, logo and img to fix it. I’ve tried that bit of code but I’m not having any luck. Any ideas? Thanks.

Default-user

Jesse, after some trouble shooting I discovered a fix. I’ll post for anyone else who may have a similar issue.

Applying a portfolio filter named “logo” to the portfolio made the featured image display at a thumbnail size. Once I removed the portfolio filter the image displays at normal size.

visualkicks

Hi, Im happy you have this sorted. Thats really bizarre that would happen. I’ll take a look into it though. Regards, Jesse

Hello all

Can you please tell me why my site looks like this http://new.elenafavilli.com/ and not like the theme demo at all?

Thanks

visualkicks

Are you running wordpress 4.1? Please rollback to 4.0 as its the official supported version of wordpress. After that I would recommend resetting your install and re doing the theme install as well. 4.1 removed and changed the customiser functions so many default settings do not save with it.

Jesse

Hi,

Love the theme, I have recently bought the theme, and have now finally gotten around to play with it.

I seem to have some problems with my menu bar, which doesnt look like the default shown in the test drive version of the theme, even though I have the exact same color settings like you do.

the roll down menus are transparent and are non responsive to color changes.

Look forward to hear from you.

visualkicks

Hi, do you have a link to your site so I can see it? Also, have you tried updating the colors > saving > then checking them on the front page? The colors update in real time via js but do not impact your database. So it may be a case of the js simply not working. Let me know.

Regards, Jesse
