Hey, love the theme!

One thing: the social icons plug-in creates an URL that starts with my base URL. So facebook: www.facebook.com/atlantiquearts is forwarded as www.atlantiquearts.com/home/www.facebook.com/atlantiquearts… Does this have anything to do with the permalinks? If I set it to standard I also don’t end up upon the styled 404 buth on black and white error page.

visualkicks

Hi there,

You need to include http:// at the start of any external URL or they don’t work. So it should be http://www.facebook.com/username

Hi there,

Ok, I’m finally close to finishing up here. Pretty much done, but there’s basically one last problem I’m having…

I have the page set up as a home page with panels. The site is for a record label, so I need to have a bunch of soundclould players. The problem is that when I add more than about 5 panels with soundcloud players, it crashes safari on my ipad and iphone.

Is there a way to either a) limit the number of panels that will load at once? b) make a more playlist player with the built in audio player? c) Somehow load more than 5 SC players without crashing the iPad?

Thanks,

Lou

Hey Lou, in the theme customizer there is an option under ‘General Settings’ called Disable CSS3 backface visiblity. Try checking that box. It can cause problems on tablets.

Let me know if that does the trick.

Need some help with setting up Theme.

For some reason I just cant make the FP look like in your DEMO – Minimal. Here: http://dansanders.me/

Problems: Cant get rid of the Header TEXT in ABOUT page, this huge ABOUT text.

How do I change text color there?

Or can I send you some how my WP Admin pass so you could take a loot at this?

visualkicks

Hi there!

1) Have you made any portfolio posts? http://d.pr/i/w2Ox

2) Thats the page title, you can choose to hide the title. It’s an option available for each post, portfolio, page & panel. http://d.pr/i/IFPa

3) Im assuming you have set the title to default so you change it in the theme customizer. I would recommend going to the minimal theme and clicking test drive. You will be able to see all the options in use and probably get a better understanding of how things work.

hey,

Does your contact form include a prebuilt captcha?

The plugins are a drag from wordpress and I think it’s important that themes come with some form of additional spam protection seeing asthough wordpress is one of the most commonly hacked cms’ around.

I really like the theme but I can’t buy it without.

Thanks

visualkicks

No unfortunately it does not, we try to create things as simple as possible so use of 3rd party plugins is easier. However, all forms are created differently and Wordpress doesn’t have any set pre-made form functions. We run our form through a simple hidden field test. Spam bots generally fill out all fields of a form and so we base our validation of this. And of course the usual jQuery validation checks etc etc.

I have a few problems otherwise I love this theme. My logo image is not displaying in internet explorer 7. Is there a workaround for this? Content is not displaying either.

Also when I select page template settings to home style…the body content disappears so i have to use the the default template setting. This occurs in all browsers.

If there is a CSS adjustment I can do I can implement it. I am familiar with CSS. Cross browser compatibility has always been a challenge for me. www.johndaviddesigns.com

visualkicks

Hey John,

1) We no longer test or support IE7 as usage stats are near enough non existent now. We only go as far back as IE8. The time it takes to provide solutions for older browsers is just not cost effective. Also, IE8 will eventually be dropped within a year or 2 as more companies (google analytics, jQuery 2.0, microsoft) drop support for it. Also, XP is officially dumped in april of next year.

2) The home page template is meant to be used in conjunction with panels. Anything you would normal put in body content, you can place in panels? Or did you want to do something a bit different? Let me know. If you need a slider all pages & post types can have a post format / media.

Just purchased the theme. So far so good. I’m in the process of poking around getting used to it. Do you have full documentation for this template I can download? The only thing I can find is the brief helpfile(dot)pdf that came with the download. Am I not looking in the right place or is this all there is? Thanks

visualkicks

Hi there, the documentation is the read me file that you mentioned above. As for how the theme works everything has been built with as little 3rd party customisation as possible (if any). Meaning, everything is contained within core Wordpress functionality. All theme options are in the Wordpress theme customiser and all post / page / portfolio / panels use the core ‘post formats’. They do also have their own set of metaboxes but it’s pretty self explanatory.

This is a good resource to use as well. http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Lessons

Other then that if you do any any questions just send a comment or email :)

Hi

Installed the theme but get every time we try and preview a page!

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s53/sh/dae70f37-e95d-4e6b-a417-85cdb06c607b/2eb1f36226c5b525c276a1b715111cb7

Can you help? Thanks.

visualkicks

Seems like your WordPress install has a problem with it’s permalinks. I suggest you go into Settings > Reading and set OR resave the permalinks.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Our permalinks are set to: / postname /

and we have re-saved them but to no avail as we still get the same error.

This is a new Wordpress Install that is running Wordpress 3.7.

visualkicks

Hmm, could you send me a link to your site?

visualkicks

So did this issue resolve itself or did you manage to fix it? As far as I can see the site is working fine? Is there a certain page you want me to try and view?

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Jesse, the site works fine, but the ‘Preview Changes’ option is still out, giving ‘Oh no, you’re lost!’ everytime.

Default-user

So, I’ve narrowed down the problem.

I can successfully preview under the following circumstances:

- Brand new page, not yet saved or published - Brand new page, saved to draft

I cannot preview:

- Once I’ve already published the page.

Also, I’m using WP 3.7.

Thanks,

Terry

visualkicks

Hi Terry, thanks for that. We’ve taken a look online and it appears that this has / is happening to many users of many different themes. A lot of the solutions people have stumbled upon vary from disabling certain plugins to directly editing their .htc access file. If we can safely provide a solution in theme we will in the next patch (provided we can). It works fine for us on one server and on another does what you are saying above.

As of right now I cant tell why that that is. So leave it with us. I would recommend hitting google though and trying what others already have.

Hey there! If I choose the single page layout for the home page (listed panels version) how do I get the nav to link to items on the page such as Contact. Is as simple as adding a custom URL to the menu with the hashtag of the page item?

Second question. Anyway to provide the portfolio information above the listed content instead of below or on the side?

Thank you!

visualkicks

Hey there, It’s not really as simple as that in regards to linking nav items to panels. The theme wasn’t really built to be a one page style click and go scroller.

You will need to get in touch with a web developer to 1) create a get_slug() function, then to add the panel slugs to each panel as id’s. 2) Create some basic javascript animations for each menu item to scroll smoothly to each id slug.

Re the portfolio content, no unfortunately not. Fullwidth media is called in the header.php well before the content is pulled. The only other option is to edit single-portfolio.php directly and never have fullwidth media (i don’t recommend).

Zdraste) Theme seems to be very beautiful!) I wonder if I have opportunity to make annotation to each item in portfolio?

Thanx!

visualkicks

Hi, thanks for the kind words! You can include an annotation on the portfolio page itself, then also include a title intro strip of text if that is what you mean.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Jessy, hello again. Thank U for respond!To avoid misunderstandings I want to make sure I asked correctly)... The thing is in my perfect vision my web site it should contain several portfolio theme such as “sculpture”, “interior ceramics”, “art jewelary” and “about”. Each of this portfolio theme also contain numbers of items(artworks).I do like the way you presented illustartions of “japanese girls”, and now I wonder: is there opportunity to put the annotation-explanation to the each item-sculpture inside the portfolio(and maybe to show concret sculpture in the different foreshortening? Thanks, have a good day!

visualkicks

1) Multiple portfolios are supported with “portfolio project” taxonomy. Which are basically categories for portfolio posts.

2) Im a little confused as to what you mean by annotation now though. You can include ANY content you like in a portfolio post and have it set to any post format (image, gallery, audio, video etc). If you have an image slider you can of course include image captions that would describe each image you have. Perhaps that is what you mean?

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

God bless U, Jessy))) I think that it exactly what I meant! 8)

Is there any way to create pages with customisable / individual panels like the homepage as it only allows text and the basic edit box? Would be great to pick and choose or create new panels for other pages also? Any help with this would be great thanks! Love the theme otherwise!

Hi there, thanks for the purchase! As of right now – no there is no way to pick or choose. It’s certainly something we are looking into though. If it’s doable well be adding it in with a future update.

Hey there, my portfolio project pages are displaying the name of the first portfolio at the top, rather than the name of the project, ie here http://saffer.co/portfolio-project/corporatework/

Any idea why?

visualkicks

Hey there, the taxonomy portfolio_projects was not meant to be viewed in archive format like that.

Well add a template to the theme in an update to fix this (the title that is), but for now why not create a page > give it a page template “portfolio” > then set it to display your chosen project.

Generally speaking, you should link to that page over linking to the taxonomy as you are given a lot more options in how to display the listed items.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

hi there, I’m now getting the same page title issue with a page set up with portfolio template and “all portfolio” items displaying http://saffer.co/portfolio/ – any ideas?

visualkicks

Hi Ben,

I can tell by looking at the page and also by viewing the page source that, what i am looking at is NOT a ‘page’ with the page template set as ‘portfolio. But rather an archive page. As stated above there is not template in place for archive (search results, taxonomy listings, days, months, years, tags, categories etc) pages.

What im thinking you have done is created a portfolio_project called ‘portfolio’ am i right? You should delete that.

Hi there,

I purchased clipboard for a project and loved the fact that I could use custom css to style the self hosted audio player to remove volume controls and just have the play button and progress bar especially for mobile and tablet. You provided me with this custom css. Before I purchase Dimple I would like to know if it is possible to use the same custom css for this theme or is it even possible to customize the audio and video player to just have the play button and progress controls for mobile. Thanks please let me know.

visualkicks

Hi there! Yes I remember that. Same principal applies here as it uses the same core Wordpress player. The CSS itself might need to be modified but I’ll happily create a new bit of code for you.

Hello Jesse

I’ve just installed the theme, can you help with a very basic question – how do I make the page title smaller? I’ve read through the posts and seen that you suggest inserting this

http://snippi.com/s/ah2jq4q

into the custom css, which I have done, but I can’t see what changes. I’d just like the page title to be an unobtrusive header, can you help?!

Many thanks Sally

visualkicks

Hey Sally, firstly thanks for the purchase!

So that snippet of code should work, but perhaps you’re trying to edit the in content title size? Like in the homepage of the minimal demo?

If not you could try adding the css rule !important after the font size in the code above. So it would look like this.

mainPageTitle .title-featured {

font-size: 38px !important; }

If that doesn’t work you’ll need to send me a link to your site so I can see exactly what needs changing.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

HI Jesse

Thank you for your reply – unfortunately it hasn’t made a difference.

The website is www.goldfinchdesign.co.uk and an example of what I’d like to change is on http://www.goldfinchdesign.co.uk/portfolio/party-special-eventinvitations/ – I’d just like the title ‘party and special event invitations’ to be like it is on the demo – without the big banner behind.

Many thanks Sally

visualkicks

1) That page you sent is a blog post (it has a date, likes, navigation etc). If you want to remove that stuff you can either make it a ‘page’ (not a post) OR go into the theme customiser > general settings and choose to disable the post meta in the page title.

2) You set the page titles background colour & palette in the theme customiser as well under the section “Page Title”. You can also set each page, post & portfolio post with a custom title background.

1) If you want to mess with the page title padding this will do the trick – http://snippi.com/s/lgirhip (theme settings > custom css)

Hi Jesse

That’s all a brilliant help, thank you so much.

Can I ask another question – is it possible to adjust the media padding of the body section? Just so that the text on each portfolio post and the homepage is closer to line above (see http://www.goldfinchdesign.co.uk/portfolio/londonweddinginvitations/).

Many thanks again, Sally

visualkicks

Hey Sally, no problem – its the same code above ( http://snippi.com/s/lgirhip ) except change #mainPageTitle to #mainBody and then obviously adjust accordingly.

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Brilliant, thanks Jesse.

Can I ask one more question (so sorry to keep bothering you) – is it also possible to adjust the padding on the homepage, above the introductory paragraph? (www.goldfinchdesign.co.uk)

Many thanks again for your help Sally

visualkicks

Hi Sally, did you want to reduce the distance between the top of the paragraph and the header?

It would be what I sent through before – so something like this.

mainBody .container { padding-top: 50px; }

Again you’ll need to copy paste that into your custom CSS of your theme settings in the dashboard. Let me know if thats what you were after?

Best Regards Jesse

Default-user

Hi Jesse,

I did want to do that – which was the same thing as before – it worked on the portfolio pages but didn’t work on the homepage for some reason. Does the code need to be a little different? Sorry to bother you!

Thanks Sally

Default-user

Hi again Jesse

Please can you help with another matter – I’m driving myself mad; how do I allow an infinite number of portfolio posts on the home page? I think I set it to 12 but I can’t remember how I did that and I now have more than 12 posts but the extra ones aren’t showing on the homepage.

Thanks so much Sally

Hi Jesse, ignore my last question about the number of portfolio posts – I’ve worked out the answer, finally!

Another issues presents itself:

When I load the website, using, for instance, the page: http://ateliersaintemarthe.com/ecole-sainte-marthe/

The site loads using a different font from the one I have selected (Bokor). Could you advise?

visualkicks

Hey there,

Thats the way google fonts work. The font needs to be loaded (like any other item on the page) and that brief moment where it is not loaded is when it’s connecting to google. Anyone visiting the page for the first time and who doesn’t have the font in their cache will have a slightly longer wait.

If you want to by pass google (and host the font yourself) you can download your google fonts from http://www.google.com/fonts > then place the font on your server somewhere > then in the custom css using the @import rule bring your font (and its attachments) in. Otherwise it will just remain as is.

Hi,

Using the ‘Next / Previous’ buttons in the portfolio, they seem to be reversed. Ie. When you click the previous button, it takes you to the next project and vice versa.

Any idea how to change this??

Thanks!

You could use some custom CSS in the to swap them around – wouldn’t be too difficult. We wanted it to be left is back and right is forward.

Hi, super great theme. Just one question: why is “page intro” text not showing up for my blog page? Everywhere else, it is just fine. Just the blog page.

visualkicks

Hi James, well have to take a look into that. Can you send me the link to your blog page? And just to clarify you want an intro on your blog like this – http://demo.visualkicks.com/dimple/standard/blog/

Is there a way to control text formatting? For instance space between letters and space between lines of text?

visualkicks

Not at the moment. You can use CSS and place it in the “theme settings” > “custom CSS” text area though. If you only want to change something like paragraph text its simple enough

p { line-height: 14px !important; font-size: 12px !important; }

The important rule is used to override and set sizes that use rem instead of px.

Hey Jesse, Can I decrease the height of the page title area? Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers.

visualkicks

Sure you can reduce the padding with some css. Paste this CSS code into the “Theme Settings” custom css text area. Play around with the paddings till you get it right.

http://snippi.com/s/lgirhip

Default-user

Hi Jesse. I’m trying to make some adjustments to the title area and I feel like I’m spinning my wheels. Maybe you can help:

When creating a portfolio post, with ‘fullwidth’ media type selected and the title type selected to ‘hidden’ AND hiding the post page image (no featured image displayed on post page), there is a alot of space in between the mainHeader and content-block entry-content. It looks like that’s the mainPageTitle div that’s taking up all of that realestate. If I don’t have a background color set for that area then it appears as a large white space. Any way to reduce the height of that area? I can’t provide a link as I’m developing on a private server.

visualkicks

Sorry for the delay I have been without internet the last couple of days (in between countries).

Hmm, it’s certainly hard to visualise without screenshots / links etc :) But basically what you said above is counter productive (I think), you’re setting your media width to full? but your not including the featured image (media)? The title should hide correctly but it sounds like it’s the media thats the problem?

Let me know, Jesse
