Hi there! I’m almost decided to buy the theme. It’s probably a stupid question but I just wanted to be sure that there is a simple way of centring big images on the projects page with the text below it. I have this doubt since there is no way of customising the projects page on the test drive.

Thanks!

visualkicks

Hmm, I’m a little confused as to what you mean by that. Can you link me to the exact page you’re talking about in the demo?

Images within the fullwidth media section (ie gallery & standard post formats) are centred by default.

Hi Jesse, Great theme. I’m setting up and am trying to get my head around the structure but have a few questions.

Could you illustrate the portfolio-projects-page heirarchy? I’m being a but thick here but it’s not obvious to me. I’ve set up panel posts for the home page and included portfolios successfully but can’t seem to replicate this with a page. The uploaded images don’t show.

I can’t get the buttons to display. I’m using the button shortcode but nothing shows. I’ve disabled all non-visualkicks plugins too.

Latest…if I create a link in a panel post them preview the page the link works. If I save panel and view it on the home page the links don’t work…

visualkicks

Hi Andy, you will need to send me the link to your site. I can’t fix or attempt to fix anything without seeing it first. If you want to send the link via email to avoid publishing the link in public, please do so through our profile page.

is there a way for email notifications to be sent to my email address when people leave comments? thank! love the theme btw.

visualkicks

All that kind of stuff is handled by core WordPress settings which can be found in Dashboard > Settings.

For comment notification emails I believe thats under the discussions tab.

I’ve translated the .po file to nl_NL.mo. I’ve uploaded this file to the theme root, but this is not working. I’ve working with a child theme folder. Where should I place the translated files?

visualkicks

Hi Robbert,

I’ll give you the same advice as a previous commentator in regards to translating themes:

If you’re only translating the theme into a single language you can just add this to your functions.php http://snippi.com/s/cdg58wg

This way you dont need to create any additional folders or mess with the wp_config. ie: leave default.mo in the root directory and simply let poedit save over the old files.

Also if you don’t want to add / remove things to your functions.php file to stay update safe – place all your custom functions into an empty plugin – http://d.pr/f/FRTl

Best Regards Jesse

ps. keep all files in the root theme not the child theme (.mo etc)

Hi, Just purchased the theme, great work!

my website is www.envyprojekt.com

1) I have the portfolio on the main homepage, but when I click the ‘portfolio’ button from the menu, it shows the items in a blog format, and not a grid.

I want the portfolio button to show as a grid like the homepage, or better yet, just take me back to the portfolio on the homepage once clicked.

2) How do I modify the size of text headers, at the moment when I put a header it takes up the whole page so I removed it.

Thank you

Default-user

Thanks a lot works great. Just a few brief questions

1) Is it ok to upgrade to Wordpress 3.8 or would we have to wait for a theme update before upgrading?

2) Also on my site, I have added a custom Logo, but the main menu to the right doesn’t line up properly. The menu sits a little lower, any way to adjust this for a custom logo? so both the logo and menu are level with each other?

visualkicks

1) I’ll be putting a new theme out hopefully by new years and then after that dimple is getting a nice big patch. 3.8 will be checked and tested extensively. I did do a quick 5 minute check the other day and it seems to be fine, it’s your call though. You can’t go backwards to 3.7 though if something does pop up.

2) Give this a try http://snippi.com/s/3d87dy9

3) You may want to clean up the default widgets in the main sidebar http://d.pr/i/Az39

Thanks buddy, great work!

Hi visualkicks,

I love your theme. Where’s the PSD included like other themes so we can create our design templates?

Thanks!

visualkicks

Hey & thanks for the purchase!

With the nature of responsive design and the efficiency of coding programs these days I only use photoshop to create base layouts. All the intricacy of the site are made on the fly via code. Meaning unfortunately there are no PSD files for dimple.

Be sure to check item details before purchasing, not all themes come with PSDs. A well known theme that didn’t come with PSD files until recently was Enfold.

Best Regards Jesse

Also, can you add the VIDEO BACKGROUND funtionality in alternative to Parallax/Image/Solid background? That would be awesome already!

Keep it up!

shinraidenz

Thanks for the reply Jesse! Hope you can add the video background.

shinraidenz

Jesse, for the slideshow, can we change the transition from PUSH to FADING? Thanks!

visualkicks

Hi, you will need to edit code directly. All the sliders animations are kept in format-gallery.php under the slider gallery section. The panel slider CANNOT have a fade animation though, it must remain as slide or the height will be wrong for each panel.

Best Regards Jesse

Hi, i bought the template and i don’t know how to have the exact copy of the “minimal” Dimple… i took 3 days to know how to do it but i didn’t found

visualkicks

Hi there & thanks for the purchase!

If you go into the minimal demo test drive you will see all the settings on the demo. You can just copy those settings. It takes around 2 minutes to go through and make your site have the same settings. It’s important to note there are no preset versions or skins. Just variations of settings.

As for the pages and the portfolio items, you can always install the demo content that comes with the theme.

Best Regards Jesse

We have some problems when opening the website on a mobile android device. See the screenshot in this link: http://nl.tinypic.com/r/2it5suh/5

We didn’t change anything in the meta viewport and scale tags. Can you help us out with this?

Kind regards.

visualkicks

Hi Robbert,

Thanks for this, ill add a fix to the next patch (which will be scheduled after new years). Was this an actual screenshot from a android device or just a generated photo from a services like browser snaps? If it was a browser snaps photo, there might not be to much that can be done.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

This was the actual screenshot on an android device. I’m looking forward to the update.

visualkicks

Thanks, that is helpful to know. Back into the swing of things now the holidays are over. We will be getting a patch for dimple out in about a week that will fix this issue.

Hi Jesse, I promise only a few more questions and I should be set. Is there a way to reduce the spacing above and below the portfolio page’s title filters? http://cornerhousephotography.com/wedding-2/

Thank you =)

visualkicks

That smiley face appears to be back, did you remove the custom css?

img#wpstats { display: none !important; }

I’ll need to take a look into that password protect issue.

J

Default-user

Hi Justin, removed the smiley face now. However the white strip at the bottom of each panel is still showing (before the footer widgets begin). Thank you for looking into the password protect issue. It does work sometimes, just not other times. Or it will show all of the information on the page and ask for me to enter a password at the same time. Let me know about the white space when you have a sec! Thank you as always!!!

visualkicks

Because you’re using a single background you could apply it once only.

The copyright section background applies to the entire page (as it’s the last section), so if you remove the backgrounds from all the sections & panels. Then apply your background to the to the copyright section the white areas of the page wont be white any more and everything will look the same.

Is there any way to display the new portfolio items in a widget? Currently I only see one for the blog posts. Please advise how I can do this.

visualkicks

Hi Kally,

Wordpress comes with a number of core widgets packaged with it. Recent blog posts is one of these. If you want to have the same widget but for portfolio posts (a custom post), you will need to speak to a developer about making that for you. It wouldn’t take anymore then 30 minutes to an hour if they have made Wordpress plugins before.

Best Regards Jesse

Hi. I love the theme.

My site is www.beccorszag.com

I’m having a lot of trouble setting up a portfolio. No matter what options I select I am stuck with the one layout, my images go tiny, and they open to a new page instead of an enlarged version… http://www.beccorszag.com/portfolio-project/studio-works/ I want my portfolio to function be like the demo here http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/minimal/portfolio/a-hike-through-dover/

hi again ;)

I hope there’s an easy fix for this one. How do I change the order that the portfolio filters are displaying on the gallery page? I have chronological filters and they are displaying in the page title area as 2013, 2014, 2012 etc looks alittle ridiculous

http://www.beccorszag.com/gallery-2/
visualkicks

Ahh, that’s a much harder problem. The filters are placed onto the page as each portfolio item is added to the page. So on your first portfolio post it has both 2014 and 2013. It will place 2013 before 2014 because it’s numerically before.

Same reason studio appears in the middle of them all. You may need to get in contact with a developer who can either make changes to the php in the file OR a javascript developer who can re-arrange the buttons after the page loads.

I’ll think about maybe add some other way of sorting them in an up coming patch but for now it is what it is unfortunately.

Regards Jesse

Hi,

I’ve purchased the theme. Here is my web site : www.joachimfablet.fr I’ve got a little problem. I’d like to display the portfolio filters on my homepage, I’ve ticked the option “Display portfolio filters” but it doesn’t appear on the page. What can I do ?

Thanx in advance, Joachim

visualkicks

Hi Joachim,

I took a look at your site and there doesn’t appear to be anything out of the ordinary going on. I thought maybe it was something that needed to be patched but I just added filters successfully onto the minimal demo homepage – http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/minimal/example-2/

Are you running the most up to date version of the theme. This was an issue that was fixed in version 1.7 (see the change log on the theme page.)

Let me know, Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Hi Jesse, indeed, I’m using the 1.6 version of the theme. Thank you very much for your answer.

Hello, Dimple is really really cool. The best portfolio template I’ve seen among hundreds I’ve been looking for on the net

Don’t know if it has been mentioned before but Dimple is crashing iphone 4/4S Safari (Dunno if it does the same to iPad or the iPhone 5). It is an awesome template but I didn’t buy it just for that reason. Do we expect a fix for that? And when?

Thank you!

visualkicks

Hi, thanks for the that. We regularly check on a number of devices, last we checked everything was tip top, so we will obviously need to check again.

One of the main causes of mobile crashing on iOS devices is to do with -webkit-backface-visability. As such we include an option to turn this off in the theme customiser. It seams to solve most peoples issues.

Best Regards

Hi there..!

i just bought your theme, its simple yet amazing! but i have difficulties in understanding the flow to set up and upload pages & portfolio, in the next installment can you please make a detailed documentation in everything that your buyer needed to know?

thanks a bunch and cant wait for the next update

visualkicks

Hi there,

Thank you for the feedback! We’re going to look at online documentation that you will be able to see prior to purchasing! Apologies for the delay in getting back to you, I’m official no longer in holiday mode :)

Jesse

Hi there I am really happy that you have made this great template – such a great and flexible design. There is only one thing I would like to alter – how do I delete the # sign before image captions showing below portfolio gallery images? http://julieboserup.com/portfolio/from-where-im-calling/

Thanks for any help on this! Anna

Default-user

Oh, and can I style the image caption text some how with html?

Default-user

especially a smaller font size.

visualkicks

Hi Anna,

You can make the captions smaller by adding this to your custom css area in the theme settings of the dashboard

.caption p { font-size: 12px; }

As for the # you will need to remove that manually, you will need to open clipboard/theme/theme-functions.php and remove the hash from line 456.

Best Regards Jesse

Hey Jesse! Just wanted to let you know I launched my site http://halffullstud.io in case you want to showcase it as an example somewhere ;)

So happy I chose this theme! Happy new year Igi

Wow, it looks fantastic! Really well done! Thanks for sending the link through, i’ll be sure to add it to a testimonial area on the profile page.

Jesse

Hi there! Great theme. Just one quick question for you. I’m attempting to choose a different thumbnail crop than the featured image, and I select the radio button “Apply changes to: Thumbnail” and save it. The preview updates with the crop i’ve made, however when I look at the main “portfolio” page, the crop is not changing. It remains the default crop. Any ideas on what could be causing this? Thanks in advance.

Default-user

I just thought of a work around for this issue that I thought I’d share and see if it makes sense to you. So another solution for having a different thumbnail then the feature image would be to use the “gallery” format when creating a portfolio post and checking “dont include feature image” , and then posting the desired featured image in the gallery. This way you can have a square crop thumbnail without having to make the feature image square as well.

visualkicks

Well it’s kind of the same deal in the way that your actual image isn’t square anyway. You don’t need to upload a square image, Wordpress just crops it as square as long as it’s dimensions are greater then needed. Im also kind of confused as to what you’re trying to achieve. to you have a link?

Jesse

Default-user

That makes sense. I was able to achieve the desired effect with your help. Thank you!

How do I set up the sliders to show up on my homepage like how it is on my demos? I want the recent posts to show up. If recent posts cannot be automised, we can just update it manually. Here’s the link to the site, it’s still under construction: http://glyphfiction.com/

visualkicks

Hi Mathew,

Once you create your home page, make sure you set the page template to “home”. After changing the page template, you will see a list of settings / options that you use to set up the page.

The home page slider is made up of panels. (panels in list style – http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/standard/ & panels in slider style http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/standard/home-panel-slider-w-footer/)

So, for each ‘slide’ you want create a panel post & set a featured image. Slide panel creation cannot be automated. They are just like regular posts / portfolio posts.

Hi Jesse, It’s not very simple to understand the construction and difference of portfolio/project/filter/categorie… I’m lost… I would like to create two galleries : - the first : parent ‘A’ with children ‘B’ and ‘C’ - the second : parent ‘D’ with children ‘E’, ‘F’, ‘G’ and ‘H’ In fact, like your standard demo… I tested a lot of combinaisons but I didn’t find what I want… Can you help me ? PS : sorry for my english, I’m french :)

There’s a thing I don’t understand… When I create a portfolio with a few images in slider and when I apply an image background, this image background is in the sliders to! No just in background but also like an image of the portfolio! How I can put it out? Thanks! Emma

visualkicks

Hey again,

I made a bit of a diagram for you. http://d.pr/i/fant If you want to apply a filter to a portfolio post, you do it in the same way you add categories to blog posts http://d.pr/i/VAzb

In regards to the slider ALL images uploaded to the post will be used in the slider. So for background images, upload them via “Dashboard > Media”. This way they are not uploaded (attached) to the post. http://d.pr/i/vyuZ
