Hi there. Great theme. Is there a way to just have one banner image on homepage instead of the slider?

maarcin

Hi,

thanks :) Yes, You can use image code instead of slider shortcode or just create one slide.

How do I turn the page title off on blog posts? I can do it for pages but there is not an option in the settings on the blog posts admin page?

maarcin

Hi,

you can use custom css e.g.
.single-post .page-title {display: none;}

Hi, the XML Sitemap Generator shows me a msg: Your blog is currently blocking search engines! Visit the privacy settings to change this.

Checking the file via FTP it doesnt exists. JLR

Hi,

I answered on support forum, this is not theme related issue. Ask plugin author or read its documentation.

How can I disable mobile versions? Thanks.

maarcin

Hi,

because theme is based on Bootstrap there is no option for that. If you want to remove only mobile version then I believe the best way is to generate main Bootstrap css file once again. Unless You want to edit current minified one (and I guess You don’t).

What kind of font customization does this theme provide?

maarcin

Hi,

all fonts available on Google fonts + all character sets, all font styles and weight + standard fotns (e.g. Arial, Helvetica etc.) and of course font size. All that separately for body, body (bold elements), navigation, page title, all headers (h1 to h6, separately), blockquote and footer widget headers. Colors also can be changed. If You need something more it can be easily done with some extra css.

Hi there

Just trying to optimise my site as far as possible and wondered about the font styles loaded.

I know I am using fontawesome quite widely but can you tell me if the theme uses the others like fontello and glyph etc? I haven’t selected them myself and I can’t detect if they’re in use?

I want to know if it’s safe to unload those styles.And what about these woff fonts?

maarcin

Hi,

theme uses Font Awesome with additional stylesheet, Glyphicon that comes with Bootstrap and Fontello for some additional social icons..

Woff (Web Open Font Format) is a format of a font and just comes with the font package. There are couple other font formats just to make sure that all browsers are supported. Some of them just uses different formats.

Font Awesome is used widely, but You can remove those icons that You don’t use to make file smaller.

Glyphicon is used for search icon and icon that is visible on e.g. portfolio item overlays (for lightbox), but since it comes packed with Bootstrap I didn’t customize it in any way.

Fontello uses couple additional social icons. You can go to css/fontello.css and check out if You’re using them. If not You can comment line 207 in functions.php
wp_enqueue_style('mt-fontello', get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/fontello.css', 'style');

You can also use cache plugins like W3Total Cache. It can merge all css files and minimize them. But be careful with it, sometimes it may cause problems with additional plugins.

Thanks for a perfect answer, really useful.

I deregistered fontello in child functions.php with:

// Remove Fontello CSS styles across site
add_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'fontello_deregister_styles', 100 );
function fontello_deregister_styles() {
wp_dequeue_style( 'mt-fontello' );
}
maarcin

Sure :) That’s the way to do it too, even better one.

HI there

I just installed this theme, and every time i update or publish a page / post I get a error about navigating away from the page instantly! My options are to stay on page (which does nothing but load endlessly) or leave page, which when selected finishes loading, but requires a second update to save the page!

This makes for stupid tedious work. I am running 1.12 on a new wordpress install, and am feeling a little put off by this!

• I need to know how to SHUT OFF THE YOU ARE HERE option. and • I am still having this weird error issue when I publish a page or portfolio item…. it acts as if I an navigating away from an unsaved page, the second I hit the publish or update button!

Hi,

You can hide it with css
.mt-breadcrumbs {display: none;}

I don’t know about second issue. I haven’t seen this before and none of the Clients that bought this theme had it. Send me wp admin details on support@themesymphony.com and I’ll look into it.

Is there a way to increase the size of the logo in the mobile version? Our logo is 150w x 200h on the regular site, and it shrinks down to be minuscule in the mobile version, and I can’t find a way to lock it at a larger size. Is there a way we can increase this so it doesn’t look completely out of proportion?

maarcin

Hi,

You can set logo height in Theme Options -> Header Settings. Unless You want to use different heights for desktop and mobile versions.

Marcin

Thanks! That worked perfectly for the mobile version now.

I noticed the font included in the theme is showing up incorrect on mobile versions and in safari and firefox (it’s showing up as something serif rather than the Raleway font specified). It’s only happening on the homepage hero images, but no where else. Has anyone else come across this, and is there a way to correct it?

maarcin

Hi,

firefox an safari on mac/pc? I haven’t noticed anything like that on my installation. Are You looking up on demo page or Your own installation?

Best
Marcin

Default-user

Firefox and Safari on a mac/pc, and on mobile chrome. It looks like it’s just with my installation. I didn’t realize it was a problem until a colleague pointed it out who has using Firefox. It’s just with the text in the Revolution Slider – all other text is perfectly fine. I actually think it’s an issue with the slider itself after looking into it further, so I’ll contact them directly.

maarcin

They won’t help You because they only support Clients that bought their product directly. Feel free to open a topic on my support forum and send me site address. If I won’t be able to help I’ll contact with them.

Best
Marcin

I actually got it figured out myself – thanks for the offer! I thought I had changed all fonts over to Raleway, but the one within the slider was still using Open Sans, so once I changed that over the issue was resolved.

maarcin

Great :)

In case of further questions I suggest to open a topic on support forum.

Hello, just a question prior to buy the theme. The widget with icons inside, can have a link to a page or URL? Thank you very much.

maarcin

Hi,

this is plain html, so You can add there whatever You want.

Hi Marcin, When I resize the browser (typically I move the right towards the left) after a certain point (just past half-way) the menu disappears. How can I stop that from happening?

maarcin

Hi,

main menu disappear, but mobile one is visible. If You don’t like this You can change it in css/responsive.css file and adjust to what You need.

How do I add the category to a picture to put in the portfolio? Can you tell me the full procedure? I’ve already added the portfolio categories but don’t see where I link them to anything. A short video on how to do this would be great, but any advice is appreciated.

maarcin

Hi,

this is described in the documentation that comes with theme. You need to use featured image and that featured image will be used in portfolio item.

You can find step-by-step walkthrough in the documentation.

Best
Marcin

graphicoffee

There is documentation there, but is not very good. There are two steps.1. Create some categories, 2. Add your new portfolio item. I’ve done those. You authored the theme and assume too much from the people who purchase your product. I’m thankful you answered so quickly but just sending me back to the useless documentation is no help at all.

maarcin

Inside second point there is text with additional info. I don’t know if You just missed this or what, but You can find there step number 3 and it starts with:

3. Featured image – You should always use this! It’s used mainly for thumbs…

And I answered Your question in my previous comment: “You need to use featured image and that featured image will be used in portfolio item.”

Unless You want something else. But like I said earlier – this is described in the documentation which is not useless at all :)

Best
Marcin

graphicoffee

apologies..useless is too strong a word. The documentation would be better served if you took the user step-by-step threw through the process. create the category, add picture to the…. add shortcode… It is confusing if this is the first time dealing with theme/filtered gallery. I’m still confused on the actual process. Is there a shortcode you put on the page to view the filtered gallery?

maarcin

For the gallery? Yes, there is a shortcode and it’s called “Gallery album”. You’re using it similar to the “Portfolio” shortcode.

Good way to learn new themes is always using demo data that comes with a theme. It’ll recreate demo page and You’ll be able to see how things works in the admin area, how specific areas are created etc.

After You get familiar with it You can easily create Your own site really fast.

Ok Last one for today…I will preference this with I didn’t find it in the documentation and I tried various settings in the css but still can get the social icons to right-justify in the footer. The best I could get is to have it in the center. Please advise.

Thanks, :confusedsad:

maarcin

Show me Your site, I’ll send You css code. I need to see where You want to put them.

Best
Marcin

maarcin
Use
.footer-bottom .socials {float: right;}

If You want them to be 100% of width You also have to change col-md-6 to col-md-12 in footer.php on line 15.

worked like a charm, Thanks :bigwink:
