Hi,

I’ve managed to create pages that look the way I want them to (a custom list of panels). Now how do I make the home page itself display my custom list of panels (like you have it in the standard demo)?

Thanks LSC

I actually have the same question as lightspeedchick… How do I get my panels to show up on the home page?

visualkicks

If you go to Pages > Home (or whatever your home page is named) > make sure the page template is set to ‘home’ > select ‘include panels’.

Doh! Sorry that I’m too thick to have figured that out on my own, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… you rule. Thanks!

ha, any time :)

Visualkicks, is there a way to get the demo site loaded up so i can then edit it from there as it would be much easier to see how things work. As now I can’t even see how you edit the homepage

visualkicks

The demo content comes with the theme files. It’s in the folder called “demo-content”.

To install it go to ‘tools > import > select wordpress > install the wordpress importer > navigate to the appropriate demo-content.xml file > upload. (be sure to tick the box to download all image attachments)

After you have uploaded the demo content, you will still need to setup all the basic site functions like ‘front-page’, ‘blog-page’, the menu and also the theme customizer settings. The readme file covers settings up your site.

Keep in mind wordpress does NOT support post formats on custom post types, so after you have installed the demo content, you will need to set the post formats for panels and portfolios. Blog posts will already have the post formats selected though.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Best Regards Jesse

visualkicks

ps. re the home page. all options are set in the pages > home (or whatever you have decided to call your homepage). You just need to make sure you have selected the “home” page template just like you would to create a portfolio page etc.

Default-user

Hi mate, I Installed the demo content and all it did was import the images into the media section is this what was meant to happen? Is there any way I could email you as i don’t want to spam questions on here. Thanks

visualkicks

Sure you can use the message form on our profile. From there we can just email each other back and forth. If you want me to take a look at your install you can send me your username / password in confidence (or create a temporary admin account for me to use).

From what you said above there yep thats sounds about right.

Hello, I’m getting an error with the twitter widget, it says:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/***/wp-content/plugins/visualkicks-widget-twitter/visualkicks-widget-twitter.php on line 217
It worked normally until yesterday :(
visualkicks

Hmmm. interesting. I have been throwing all sorts of things at the twitter widget to try and get the same results. Have you tweeted anything out of the ordinary lately?

‘Invalid argument foreach’ means that the twitter stream is returning something funky. Do the tweets still visibly show? If you can send a screen shot to support@jessengatai.com that would be handy. Of the widget settings and also the page.

We’re putting together patch 1.4 for dimple at the moment so we will try sort this out.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

It works now again, this is really odd. It looks like there was a smaller issue with the twitter API for some users (I was one of them, yay). Everything back to normal then, thank you for your fast response :)

ha, thats what I like to hear :D

Hi VK,

I like yoour theme and I wanted to know if it was possible to have a lightbox wxhen clicking on a video item on a portfolio gallery.

Example : I have a grid with thumbnails when I click, instead of opening the page with the video, i want a lighbox appearing.

Is it somthing achievable with this theme?

Cheers,

visualkicks

Hey there, no unfortunately the Lightbox does not support video – only images.

The actual plugin does include support for youtube videos (http://brutaldesign.github.io/swipebox/#video) but thats it. You would have to do a fair bit of work though to get that working within the theme – a job for a confident web developer.

For some reason, some of my Featured Images in the gallery are showing up too small. Any ideas why this is happening?

Other than that, I LOVE this theme. Great work!

visualkicks

Hey & thanks for the purchase!

Hmm, for whatever reason setting the max image height for the logo in the theme customiser is breaking something. (we’ll fix this in 1.4).

For now though, remove the max image height in the theme customiser for the logo and copy paste this into your custom CSS area in the ‘theme settings’. http://snippi.com/s/4sta69w

Great theme. But I can’t see any images in gallery section for gallery type projects. And can’t delete them.

Default-user

The only way to remove an image from a gallery is to delete it from a library.

Default-user

And I can attach only images that was downloaded for this post. Other images don’t showing.

visualkicks

Hi & thanks for the purchase!

Hmm, I can’t really gather what the problem is from what you are describing. I can only make sure you are double checking certain things.

> post format is set to gallery > images you upload are uploaded in the post editor (not the media uploader) > all images attached to a post will display (no matter what) > try delete the images and re upload them

If you want to add custom backgrounds to parallax areas instead of uploading them to the post, upload them via the media dashboard tab (so they are no attached).

Let me know if any of this helped? There is a screenshot in the read me explaining the image uploading process.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Thank you for help and sorry for messy question. So I am trying to attach a gallery to post or portfolio project. I click on the gallery format radio button and then click upload images button in gallery settings section. Then I see the insert media dialog. I choose some images and then strange things happen. If I select images uploaded for this post, I see them in the post, but can’t delete or modify the gallery. If I choose one of already uploaded images they just don’t appear in the post, gallery is blank.

I have tried to set up completely new wordpress copy with dimple theme and ended with same result.

Default-user

I can mail you some screenshots that describing my problem.

visualkicks

What your explaining is the correct way that WordPress functions. As I sad above though ‘only images attached to the post’ will display. You cannot ‘select’ which images will be shown – only images uploaded to the post will work.

Also you don’t need to insert the into the post. See these screenshots for what I mean. (they are for this post http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/minimal/portfolio/hold-fast/)

http://d.pr/i/PvAi http://d.pr/i/vyuZ

It doesn’t matter if the images are selected or not – only images that ARE in the ‘uploaded to this post’ tab will be shown in the slider / gallery / lightbox.

Let me know if you need a hand?

I’m very interested in purchasing Dimple for a portfolio site. It seems very flexible, but I need to know if there are certain restrictions in the capability.

1. When using the Lightbox gallery (as in the Darkroom example), is it possible to set the navigation so the user only has to click in the image on the right side to go forward and the left side to go backward? It’s awkward to send the user to the upper corner to the arrows, which are small targets, to navigate through the images.

2. And can you set the forward/backward navigation like that in a slider panel so the user doesn’t have to hit the arrow targets exactly?

3. Is it possible to set up the Panel Listing style with one of the panels as a slider panel?

4. I’m assuming that you can even do nested portfolios, for example, if I created a section like The Loft, where the images linked to a post rather than displaying an enlarged lightbox image, could the post page include a portfolio like The Darkroom—or could a link from The Loft go directly to a portfolio page like The Darkroom?

5. Is there a limitation on the number of images that can be in a portfolio?

Thanks very much.

visualkicks

Hey there! Thank you for your interest.

1. unfortunately thats how the Lightbox plugin is setup. they can use keyboard navigation if on a desktop computer or their hands to swipe through if on a touch device.

2. Hmm you can certainly change the placement of the arrows with custom css, but you would have to have a good knowledge of CSS to do this.

3. Do you mean instead of a gallery thumbnail panel (like the darkroom panel) its a fullwidth or standard size image slider? Yes, absolutely you can.

4. Hmmm no sorry this isn’t possible. Portfolio links will go to portfolio single post pages.

5. No limit on images or portfolio items. Also posts per page are custom for each portfolio project page.

Hi Jesse, I sent you a message,

Thanks

Hello, Just purchased the theme and wondering what I can do to edit the large titles on pages (ie “About”) – I would either like to make them smaller or remove them all together. Also, I would like to remove the large amount of padding space surrounding these titles (whether I make them smaller or remove them) so my body text is much higher up on the page. Please advise – thanks!

Default-user

Also – I cant seem to get the titles to go lowercase, even when I uncheck “title uppercase”... the options for italic and bold are just fine but nothing happens when I uncheck the uppercase box.

visualkicks

The live customiser uses javascript to update things on the fly. Sometimes it hits a bump in the road if you have been customising for too long. You can always check if it did update by clicking the Refresh button OR by saving your settings and refreshing the page.

Also! I forgot to mention, changing the uppercase will NOT work on titles that have been added via the post content.

Re the padding and the font size you can use a little bit of custom css. Paste this code into the custom css box in the theme settings. http://snippi.com/s/ah2jq4q

Obviously, you will need to play around with the settings to get it how you want.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Thanks Jesse – I was able to resolve the uppercase issue and regarding the padding the code worked to adjust the space in the title section (Thank you!) but there is still a large amount of space between where the title section ends and the body text begins. Any way to lessen the padding there? Thanks again for your help. Love the theme! -Sara

visualkicks

Much the same way we change the header.

mainBody .container {

padding-top: 50px; padding-bottom: 50px; }

Obviously just change the values to whatever you want :)

Is there a way to make a distance between the logo (picture, not text) and the sidebar menu button, but at the same time keep it tight (0 padding) in desktop mode

Default-user
oskler Purchased

Right now the menu button (mobile mode) overlays the icon in a not pleasant way.

visualkicks

Hey there, are you able to send me a link to your site? The mobile menu button is set with position absolute, so you could change it with some CSS.

But in saying that, jut how big is your logo? It’s got to be pretty big to be overlapping? Or do you mean when you shrink the window size right down?

Best Regards Jesse

It occurs when I shrink it and the logo has full screen width on a mobile device… I send you the link.

Default-user

Another issue with the logo is that logos from pictures doesn’t get centered (as text logos do) when the browser area shrinks down to tablet or mobile mode. This looks pretty weird as the tag line automatically centers. See this screenshot from ipad: http://bit.ly/GNbUaD

visualkicks

Yep, this is a known bug (as of yesterday), well be fixing this in 1.5. However for now you can just paste this into your custom CSS. http://snippi.com/s/mipxofc

Hi, thank you for your beautiful work. I purchased the theme and I like it very much. Juste one question : as my whole website is in french, I’d like to change the field “Name” in my contact form. Is it possible ? How can I do this ?

visualkicks

Hmm, well you could use the .po and .mo files to create a french translation file. OR you could open up ‘page-contact.php’ and change name (line: 94) to whatever you want. You will need to have access to your sites FTP for both of these solutions – which you should have already as you would of used it to install WordPress.

How do I disable the Panel Title from showing up in the panel?

visualkicks

Great question – one which we should of asked ourselves during development. Currently there is no way to do this. Well add this option in in the next patch (which will be 1.5).

We try and wait for a number of things to add, fix, change until we put an update out (1.4 was 2 days ago). So 1.5 probably wont be for a little while. We will see if any other people have things they want added / changed etc.

Best Regards Jesse

Hi there. I love the theme. I’m a photographer and this is an amazing portfolio theme. One silly question and please pardon my ignorance: What are panels?

visualkicks

Hey there & thanks for the purchase :)

If you go to the standard demo, the home page features a number of different ‘sliders’ or ‘panels’ if you will. Also if you check out the item information – http://jessengatai.com/profile-pages/dimple_theme_profile.jpg

It kind of explains what panels are there too.

But for the most part, if all you are using the theme for is a portfolio (like the minimal version), you probably wont need the panels :)

Hello. How do I make panels larger / smaller? Thanks

visualkicks

You can choose to remove panel padding under the panel settings. But panel size is determined by whats inside it.

Hello, I just purchased your theme. There are some error comes up.

1. Somehow the “old entries” button on the home page is not doing anything. And i did tried to set the number of post to what i all have, it still shows pages it want.(sometimes 20 pages, sometimes 21pages. But I have 30+ portfolio pages)

2. Functionality of “slider, show multi images” are all disappear. now it only shows one image in the portfolio pages, even i did put couple images inside “uploaded to this post” folder

Could you help me to solve these please.

Default-user

Now i fixed most of the problems. There is only one left, if i set 20 portfolio page shown on the front page, when i total have 30 portfolio page. The old entries button still doesn’t work.

visualkicks

Hey there, thank you for the purchase :)

Can you send me a link to your site? It sounds like you haven’t set your ‘post format’ to gallery on your portfolio items.

Re the pagination, ill have to see the site to help you.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

My site is lesleyliao.com Now i set the viewable post 20 in order to bring out the old entries button. I have 21 post in total.

Thank you

visualkicks

Hi Lesley, we’ve taken a look into this and it appears to be an error with the way pagination works on pages set as the homepage. Well put a fix out for this shortly :)

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Im planing on purchasing this theme is there any bugs or errors i should know before buying it?

visualkicks

Not that we’re aware of. The user below you has mentioned something about pagination having errors, but from our side of things, everything works as it should.

The latest version is 1.4 – we put patches out after we have a number of things to add, fix or change. The only item we have currently for 1.5 is a small css fix on image logos & adding an options to hide panel titles.

Hey visualkicks

I really love dimple. I’m trying to translate (localize) it into my own language but I’m running into a few issues.

My first method was to use the plugin CodeStyling Localization. But I was getting a scripting guard error. Malfunction at current Theme detected!

My next method was to use poedit and edit the default.po file in dimple root directory. Then make a /lang folder with my new nb_NO.po and .mo files. Then make changes in the functions.php and wp-config function custom_theme_setup() { } // end custom_theme_setup add_action('after_setup_theme', 'custom_theme_setup'); function custom_theme_setup() { // Retrieve the directory for the localization files $lang_dir = get_template_directory() . '/lang'); // Set the theme's text domain using the unique identifier from above load_theme_textdomain('tutsplus', $lang_dir); } // end custom_theme_setup add_action('after_setup_theme', 'custom_theme_setup');

Like described here http://wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-localize-wordpress-themes-and-plugins/

After doing this my webpage would not load.

What am I doing wrong? Should I do it some other way?

visualkicks

Hey there! Thanks for the purchase.

So you have to change the theme_text_domain … you have it as tutsplus (which is just what the guy in the tutorial is using). Our themes use the text domain “framework”.

If you’re only translating the theme into a single language you can just do this. 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.
