Apologies if this is a previously asked questions, but I didn’t have time to read through every response to find the answer to this pre-purchase question.

I love how you have the different functionality of the “Darkroom” and the “Loft” – however on the “All Projects” page – it appears that every portfolio project has an actual single post page.

My question is can you have some that open only as a lightbox image – and others in the same portfolio take you to the actual single post page?

Basically I have some projects that don’t require a single post page – just a lightbox, and other projects will require a single post page.

Thanks in advance!

visualkicks

Hey there & thanks for your interest.

Hmmm, the ‘link to post’ & ‘link to lightbox’ are options set via any page using the ‘portfolio’ template. So, unfortunately it’s not something you set via each portfolio post.

Hi Jesse,

Love the theme :-). Just one question: how I can prevent the published date from being displayed on the portfolio?

Thanks

visualkicks

In the theme customiser > under general settings. You can un-tick the ‘Include Post Meta In title’ box. This will apply to blog posts as well though.

Hi, I love the theme, but I can’t seem to find where I can set up my site as the minimal one you have. Can you guide me? I just need simple white pages with no big header sections.

Thanks!

Also, I don’t have any space between paragraphs. How can I fix that? http://asildastudio.com/about/

I figured out how to set up the minimal style. But my pagination to the older projects doesn’t work on the home page. http://asildastudio.com/page/2/ What do I need to change?

visualkicks

Hey there & thanks for the purchase!

I just took a quick look at the site and it seems to be functioning well? Or did you just increase the posts per page?

Let me know, Regards Jesse

asilda Purchased

Yeah. I can put it back just to show you the issue. Or maybe you know already how to fix it. And I can’t seem to find where I can just put Previous and Next under the portfolio items. I tried editing the footer.php file and it didn’t help for that.

visualkicks

Hmm, I dont know what the problem is though? I have to see it in order to see whats actually going on. I can’t replicate the problem on my own server. If you check out the demo site (http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/standard/projects/page/2/) it’s working fine. So it might be the way you have the portfolio items setup?

Re the Previous & Next > at the moment it displays the title of the next post and previous post etc. Heres a snippit of code to change that. (footer.php is right file) – http://snippi.com/s/sx71kn8

Hey Jesse,

I just bought Dimple, because I love the way it looks and in your video demo it looked manageable. I’ve tinkered a bit with WP themes in the past, but am still very much a newbie. I’m not entirely clear on the difference between posts, pages, panels and portfolios and when you one over the other. I basically want to use your layout in your standard demo and swap out the content. Any resources you can point me to? Thanks. Love this theme!

visualkicks

Hey there, thank you for the purchase!

1) A post is a blog post – it will only show up on your blog page.

2) Portfolio Posts will only show up on pages that have a page template of ‘portfolio’. This way we can have the blog and the portfolio areas separate. Most people who only want a portfolio style site probably wont use blog posts at all.

3) Panel Posts will only show up on pages that have a page template of ‘home’. They are special for the home page only. (if you view the theme page on here youll see a breakdown of what they do)

4) You can install the demo content of the standard demo site. Navigate to tools > importat > wordpress > install wordpress installer > upload the /demo-content/standard.xml > tick the download all attachments.

After the demo content is installed, just setup your nav menu and your front page (settings > reading).

Let me know how you go! Best Regards Jesse

Hello, Thax for nice theme.

But I got some problem on customizing. It doesn’t come out the text I written in the post page. I can see just like this “[...]” Help me! what’s the problem?

http://yosoymihee.cafe24.com/photo http://yosoymihee.cafe24.com/archives/category/category
visualkicks

WordPress does that when you choose to use “post excerpt” instead of post content. The post excerpt length is set in the theme customiser under the tab “general settings”. Im assuming you haven’t set the length but are choosing to use the post excerpt?

I can’t do much though without being logged into your site.

One more, I’d like to install and change Korean font. Default Korean is not good.

<head>
 <style>
  .wf-active body {
   font-family: 'NanumGothic';
   font-size: 48px;
  }
 </style>
 <script src="http://www.google.com/jsapi"></script>
 <script>
  google.load( "webfont", "1" );
  google.setOnLoadCallback(function() {
   WebFont.load({ custom: {
    families: [ "NanumGothic" ],
    urls: [ "http://fontface.kr/NanumGothic/css" ]
   }});
  });
 </script>
</head>

fontface.kr? ?? ??? ??? ???

So, need to attach this code on style.css. But, I don’t know the part attached. Sorry for bad english. hope you understand me. Thank you.

http://yosoymihee.cafe24.com/
visualkicks

Your english is great :)

You don’t need to do any of that stuff above. You can copy paste this http://snippi.com/s/1fpz06v into dashboard > theme settings > custom css.

Also it’s IMPORTANT to change all the fonts in the theme customiser to “default” especially for the buttons, menus, typography etc. http://d.pr/i/ZQdZ

This will make all the fonts in the them use Nanum Gothic. If you only want the body and paragraph fonts to be nanum change it so its just “body, p {” instead of all the h1,h2 etc

Hey :-) Nice theme…

Does the homepage come with a slider at all?

Rich

visualkicks

Hey there,

The panels can be made into a slider (see the demo homepage examples) OR you can include sliders within a panel (image slider like a portfolio post).

Best Regards Jesse

richpearsonwd

Brill im trying to re-create this sort of simple idea – seems possible? http://aarkcollective.com I also would like the slider to fade out and over like this: http://www.northbounddesign.com/ and lastly can the sidebar have widgets in it at all? Hopefully it’s a yes to all this and you have a sale :-)

richpearsonwd

By the way your like function is broken on all portfolio pages: http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/standard/the-loft/

visualkicks

Hey Rich, yes something like that would be possible. The slider wouldn’t be able to fade out like that though as that functionality isn’t built into the theme. You would need to contact a web developer to do something like that for you.

Im not too sure which sidebar you are refering to, but all sidebars can had widgets yes.

ps. thanks for letting us know about the like button on portfolios, well get that fixed up :)

Regards Jesse

richpearsonwd

I think I can deal with the fade in out scenario :-)

Hi, I really like this theme but have a quick question. I see that it uses Isotope on the portfolio pages but the css transitions aren’t included. If I added the necessary CSS code would the transitions on the portfolio items work or have they been removed for a reason?

visualkicks

Hey There! It’s just an aesthetic decision that we took the transitions out. All we did was change the css transition speed from 0.3 seconds to 0 seconds. So it’s an easy change.

Have you also considered adding a masonry portfolio with load more etc, would be an awesome feature :-) And I wondered if you had thought more on a 4 or 5 grid portfolio?

visualkicks

At the moment there are no plans to add that in, it is do-able though. We’re currently working on a new item based solely for freelance / business portfolios that includes all those features, so we would rather get that out instead of hacking at dimple – for the time being.

Regards Jesse

richpearsonwd

That’s ok, sounds cool what your up to next, any chance you could email me a preview screen so I can see what your up to?

richpearsonwd

I suppose this is sort of a masonry really isn’t it, not totally but it may do for me: http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/standard/projects/

visualkicks

Well our next item doesn’t have a certain layout. We’re trying to create “the only portfolio theme you will ever need”. Taking the theme customiser to the next level, we’re hoping to create a universal style template where everything is changeable / doable.

We don’t really want to send people screens of it before its done though sorry.

Hey VisualKicks, Right off the top I love the theme, great job. I did have a quick question though- How can I insert an image and a background in the page title like the one on the example page Post Author Listing? It’s probably right in front of me for the option I’m sure. Thanks in advance

visualkicks

Hey there, thanks for the purchase! If you go to users > “the user you want to edit” > set the background image url.

As far as colors and parallax go it will user whatever is has been set for blog page.

Default-user

Thanks for answering my question so quickly! One more question I have- on the portfolio pages I noticed some have the option to see all portfolios and click through at the top of the page (ex. THE CAT TREE) under the title, how can I remove that (ex. IT’S ALL SAIGON) option? Thanks in advance!

visualkicks

Hi, It’s all saigon has the title set to “hidden” – obviously though you might not want to hide the entire title. If you only want to hide the meta & navigation if you go into the theme customizer, under “general settings” tab, you can disable portfolio title meta. So if will look like the minimal version titles – http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/minimal/portfolio/hold-fast/

Hello !

I’m interested in your very well done template ! 3 questions :

- Can we add as much panels as we want in the home page ? Let’s say I want to add multiple panels just like the one with the asian girl, is it possible ? - Can we have mutliple pages with the same type of layout as the home page ? - Can we add the full-size map pretty much everywhere ?

Thanks a lot

Matt

visualkicks

Hey Matt!

1. Yes you can have unlimited panels as they are a custom post type. 2. Yeah sure – that’s absolutely possible. 3. Yes the home page template can be on more then 1 page. But if you choose to display panels on the home page it will display all the panels that have been published.

Hi Bud,

Ok all bought :-) 2 questions if you wouldn’t mind please.

http://demo.cornwallitservices.nhs.uk/dimple/

1) I want to only use a background image on a couple of my slides, but the default slider height is too small to fit the correct size of image, how/where do I increase the slider height so it fits the images correctly please

2) On the slider I also want to change the next/previous arrows to be large and white only – how/where in the CSS is this please?

Very impressed though lots of cool features Rich

richpearsonwd

I just added this to one of the slides, sure this isn’t the correct way to do it though:

visualkicks

Hey Rich & thanks for the purchase!

1) The panel slider height is dynamically taken from the tallest slide. Which is based of the content of the slide. So if you add some content in it will increase the height. Obviously if you don’t want content, you can just > create a panel > set as gallery format > add images > set gallery style to slider > remove the panel padding. Also, set the home page to “list” panels instead of slider if that were the case.

2) You can change the colour of the arrows in the theme customiser under the “slider” tab. To increase the size though, you would need to use custom css. Probably only targeting the panel slider and fullwidth media sliders would be best. Something like this will do the trick. http://snippi.com/s/5vv6p0l

Let me know if you have any other questions, thanks Jesse

visualkicks

I failed to mention you can copy paste custom css in dashboard > theme settings > custom css.

richpearsonwd

Hi Bud, 2 more questions sorry,

Ok firstly i need the slider background to be a set height, with no padding, no content or anything, but it must show the entire height of the background image, currently it looks set to be 200px high or so.

Secondly I need/want to create a child theme for this theme, I have done it in the normal way but WP is moaning that it is broken saying:

The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

richpearsonwd

Sorry bud, i’m struggling to achieve what I want from the slider, I essentially need the slider on my homepage to be the same in style as the http://aarkcollective.com/ site, simply speaking I want background/or images in the slider to be a set height and scroll through accordingly (they also need to be linkable to pages and posts, lastly I also need the transitions changing, is this a manual job in the JS or are you planning to add this to theme customiser?

richpearsonwd

Emailed you :-)

richpearsonwd

Seriously need your help bud – all sorts of weird things happening :-(

richpearsonwd

Right I have cheated LOL, included an image which is transparent as media only then put an image background in, this then keeps the height as I wanted

richpearsonwd

Question though, how do I link the slide to click through to a page or post now?: http://demo.cornwallitservices.nhs.uk/dimple/

richpearsonwd

If parallax is ticked though the background image seems to repeat is that a bug? or is there a fix? – so sorry for all the questions

visualkicks

Hey Rich, i’ll just go over all of the above and check the emails and respond in a single comment to make it a bit easier on us both :)

richpearsonwd

Sorry for all the comments – awesome service on support bud

Hi guys,

LOVING the theme so far!

An issue: when I set a portfolio item’s ‘Media Background Image’, it also inserts this background image into the slider? I assume it’s because it uploads it to this area – http://d.pr/i/laAp and that’s where the slider items are taken from?

It also seems that the check box for ‘Media Background Image Stretch’ does the opposite of what it is supposed to. The background image stretches when I have this un-ticked.

Any help greatly appreciated.

visualkicks

Hey!

1) Correct. You can upload background images directly through “media” in the dashboard. This way they wont be attached to a post.

2) Hmm, well thats interesting. Could it be your image is really really large and when you check background image stretch it has to “shrink” in order to get the full width of the photo in? For example if you image is 2000px wide but your window is only 1280px wide, the image will be shrunk to fit.

Let me know, Cheers Jesse

Hello,

I have just purchased the dimple template, I would like to work from the standard.xml, it isn’t bringing the data across when using the plug in in wordpress.

Can you please supply me an updated export xml or let me know what it may be if possible.

Thanks in advance.

VISIO

visualkicks

Hey there & thanks for the purchase! The theme comes with both the minimal xml and standard xml. It’s in the folder “demo content”.

You can install it by going to tools > import > wordpress > install wordpress importer > upload the xml file. You then get given the option to assign usernames and also to download the demo content images. And thats it. You will still need setup your menus and select you front page and blog page in “settings > reading”

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Thanks Jesse,

I had managed to do this bit already, what is happening is that the wordpress install just hangs and doesnt give me a success statement.

Default-user

worpress xml importer I mean

visualkicks

It takes quite a while to download all the demo content images at least 2-3 minutes (maybe more depending on where you are). If you like I can take a look at doing it for you if you send me your username / password via email on our profile page.

Default-user

Hey thanks for the reply, tried it again and it has more or less pulled everything accross,

Just want to get the panel that displays the dark room back to showing portfolio as it doesn’t on my site.

Can you advise how you built the darkroom panel please? is there short code for including a project gallery?

visualkicks

hey, you just have to go to the darkroom panel and set the post format to “gallery” then make sure the gallery style is “thumbs”.

Well be away from keyboard now until tomorrow :)

Default-user

Hey VK, just been having some issues with getting the panel working (Darkroom), it doesn’t seem to update the images when uploading for the slide show.

Any thoughts, if you want to have a look let me know your email and I can add you as a user.

Hi, really lovely theme – congrats! I am having problems with the shortcodes. Every time I try to add a shortcode on a page I get a white screen. I click on the shortcode icon and then click on column/tab/whatever and I just get a blank page. When I click on the back button in the browser it goes back to the pages list page and I lose any changes I have made on the actual page. Can you please help? I have also just updated to Dimple 1.5 and am running current version of wordpress.

Georgina

visualkicks

Hi Georgina,

Are you able to send a screen shot? Are you able to disable any non Visualkicks plugins and test the short-codes again? I’m testing the short-codes on a number of different installations and they appear to be working fine.

Let me know if it was or wasn’t a plugin problem so we can sort this out for you.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Hi Jesse, I have disabled all the non visualkicks plugins and its still not working. Not sure there is any point of the screen shot as it is literally a white blank page (and I dont know how to attach an image to this comment?!)

This is what happens: I click on shortcode dropdown, a lightbox thing pops up and then about 2 seconds later the entire page goes white…..If I reload the page it goes back to post page.

Georgina

visualkicks

Hmm, you’ll need to send me your your username and password as I can’t do much to fix something that isn’t happening on our end / servers / test environment. Theres a lot I can do if I have access to the page though.

You don’t have to send me your username and password (the admin account). You can create a new user just with author privileges which should be more then enough. Emails can be sent through our author page.

An early morning question…

Can the masonry portfolio I have be easily adapted so the lines disappear and the 3 col block be brought closer together either with smaller gaps or no gaps at all?

richpearsonwd

Any ideas when 1.6 will be out bud?

visualkicks

Hey rich, I replied via email.

richpearsonwd

thanks bud, sent you a few more as well – so sorry

richpearsonwd

Last question for today sorry :-( how do I remove the little grey down arrows in the main menu. I thought this was the right class but it doesn’t do anything:

.sf-menu sf-js-enabled sf-arrows

richpearsonwd

Sorry there was one last thing am I right in thinking in the theme customizer there is no way of altering font-sizes, body, headings etc? as an example was trying to apply css to:

h5 sub-title portfolio-title tight align-center

Nothing happening though – prob wrong syntax

visualkicks

1) The super-fish menu has it’s options set in js. But this will also work – http://snippi.com/s/2zg4r1o

2) That’s correct, there is currently no way of changing font sizes. We might look at adding something like that in to the customiser later down the road. It’s one of the things were putting into our next theme, so it will fit nicely.

This will work (i just tested it) – http://snippi.com/s/t9j2zjv

Best Regards J – ps I know you said you sent an email above so I will answer whatever q’s that are in the email via email.

My website needs foreign font. Can I easily assign that font to the entire website in your theme options as font face? Thanks Nay

visualkicks

If it’s not in the listed set of fonts you can do this. This is going of a korean google font, you will have to change accordingly for your own.

Copy paste this http://snippi.com/s/1fpz06v into dashboard > theme settings > custom css.

Change all the fonts in the theme customiser to “default” especially for the buttons, menus, typography etc. http://d.pr/i/ZQdZ

This will make all the fonts in the theme use Nanum Gothic. If you only want the body and paragraph fonts to be nanum change it so its just “body, p {” instead of all the h1,h2 etc

i’m a little confused on how to create galleries within portfolio projects so that once the user selects a portfolio project they can navigate left or right to browse the images in the the project. in the demo “the loft” has a grid of projects to view and then once one is clicked on you can look at all the images within that project. thank in advance!

visualkicks

Hey there, if you go to the portfolio post that you want to have as a gallery. Change the post format to “gallery” > upload the portfolio post images > set gallery style to “slider” > scroll down to ‘media’ box > set to fullwidth media.

That’s it. It’s the exact same process with blog posts & panels.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

when i go to gallery settings on the edit portfolio page and try to upload images beside “gallery images” it won’t upload my images for some reason.

visualkicks

How big are the images you’re trying to upload? Does WordPress give you any error messages? I cant tell you why it wont let you upload as the media uploader is a core WordPress feature (has nothing to do with the theme).

Just to clear any confusion heres what you need to do – http://d.pr/i/dY61

Also, you don’t need to “insert into post” you can just click close. All images uploaded to the post will be in the slider.

Morning (well it is here) :-) question.

I want to have a a full width footer (eg 1 col that spans the 3) I have opened the footer.php file as I though I could add it in there and then create a new widget sidebar that goes in it, however the code is a little different than I’m used to in this footer, likewise I would like to do the same with the copyright footer, 1 column (span across 3 cols) both of these widget areas would need to be centred, like the footer on this site: http://demo.cornwallitservices.nhs.uk/agency/

richpearsonwd

I assume you have disabled ‘Widget Areas’ from WP admin as well, as this doesn’t appear at all for me, in 3.6 this was a useful function for creating dynamic widget areas as it meant we didn’t have to add it in manually in the function.php file :-)

visualkicks

Hmm, “Widgets” should appear as normal in the dashboard – unless im completely in the dark about this feature. Registering sidebars takes place in the functions.php file. Perhaps its a plugin conflict? Heres the change

functions.php line 512: change ‘col1’ to ‘col3’.

custom css http://snippi.com/s/z2hss2m

That should do the trick, still not sure why you don’t have widget areas available though.

Hi.

I’d like to know wich file should I change to alter the text displayed at the search result, like in this example:

http://www.quantaideias.com.br/wordpress/?s=sexta

I’d like to change it to something other than: ”# search result(s) for…”

I’ve searched but couldn’t find where to do this.

Thanks in advance :)

Default-user

Just got it to work the way I wanted. Just one more question though:

Is there a way to change the “Reply” link text?

Best regards.

visualkicks

Hi! do you mean reply text for comments? It’s tricky, that link is generated by the Wordpress function comment_reply_link();

You would have to know a bit of php to get that going – heres the function on the codex https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/comment_reply_link

found in comments.php its found on line 111.

i seemed to have lost the ability to create a blog page. none of the posts are showing up on my blog page? suggestions?

visualkicks

Have you changed anything in settings > reading lately? Just check by going to settings > reading. Make sure your blog page is actually set to be your blog page. Also check the posts per page limit. Make sure it’s not at 0?

Also, double check that all posts that you have made are in fact published?

Default-user

thanks settings was not set for any posts. thanks! anyway, to make the posts fullwidth so there is no blank column on the right side?

visualkicks

Hmm, that’s not currently doable, you will have to the single.php file. If you are unsure on how to do this you might need to contact a web developer. If you want to give it a go any way try this. http://snippi.com/s/tetbqxa

Also, this might break a bunch of stuff so make a backup.

that’s ok. i think i can live with it, but if it really bothers me later, i’ll change it then. thanks!
