What need editing to make the Twitter and Facebook icons on top right link to the correct sites. They currently link to each other’s site,

SkatDesign

Hi there,

You can edit the links from the theme’s control panel. Go to your WP dashboard > Appearance > Eirene Options > Homepage options and you’ll find the inputs for both links.

Cheers!

I added the links there but when I click the link for Twitter I go to Facebook – when I click the link for Facebook I go to Twitter

Changed the code in all the color stylesheets to:

Twitter:
.subscribe ul li.subscribe_twitter a{ background-position: -72px 0; }
Facebook:
.subscribe ul li.subscribe_facebook a{ background-position: -36px 0; }

and it seems to work.

What is the maximum siize for a custom logo?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

You can put a logo as large as the header is…. just that you must adjust the margins a little bit. If you don’t know how to do it please send me a message through my profile page and I’ll send you detailed instructions.

I am trying to create a 3 column portfolio, are there any instructions.

Is there a video tutorial for any of the steps to make the different page layouts.

I know that the page can be divided into columns, but as a novice, I don’t know how to do this.

I only know how to add pages and enter data.

Can you help me with this? Thank you

SkatDesign

Hi there,

You can find all the documentation inside the archive you’ve downloaded in the help folder (open the index file).

To create a portfolio just create a new page and from the right of the page you’ll see a box called “Page Attributes”. From the option “Templates” select the “three columns portfolio”. Publish your page blank.

Now, go to the WP dashboard > Portfolio > Add new and create a new portfolio item. On the right-bottom of the page you’ll see a box called “Featured Image”. Click “Set featured image”, upload your picture and then hit “Use as featured image”. Publish. Done.

Make sure you select the your portfolio item type photo or video.

If you don’t understand anything please don’t hesitate to contact me directly, using the contact form on my profile page.

Cheers!

Hello

I have followed your instructions for making a portfolio.

I published a blank page.

Was I supposed to place the page in the menu? How can I view the page on the website after I create the page?

I notice that you then said to use set featured image. I was trying to post 3 pictures to be across the page, so when I used set featured image, it only posts one picture.

If I want 3 pictures across the page, am I supposed to click set featured image, because if so, this made 2 pictures on the top line and 1 on the second row.

I apologize, but being new, I do not quite understand because I might not have put all the steps in order. Can you please take me from start to finish to have 3 pictures across the page and how I can view these pictures on the website after posting them.

Thank you

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Yes, you must add the page to the menu in order to show it up.

Each image on the portfolio page represents a separate portfolio item. So, if you want 3 images you need to create 3 portfolio items and add to each one 1 separate featured image.

1. Create portfolio page with the template set to “Three Columns Portfolio”. Publish blank.

2. Add your page to the menu.

3. Create a new portfolio item from your WP dashboard > Portfolio > Add New. Set ONE featured image. Publish. This will be your first portfolio item (don’t forget to select photo or video).

4. Repeat step #3 for how many items you want to add the the portfolio page.

5. Profit :)

Let me know if you don’t understand anything.

ps. you don’t have to apologize for being new.

Cheers!

I am a complete newbie and have been seriously impressed at the support given by Eirene. Yiou rock! Thanks!

Is there any way to adjust the headings font – the space between words isn’t big enough – hard to tell sometimes that there is a space there at all.

Example on the demo

OUR CLIENTS LOVE US

looks like

OUR CLIENTSLOVE US

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Sure, here’s how to do it:

Go to your WP dashboard > Appearance > Eirene Options > Styling Options and in the box named “Custom CSS ” paste this code:


h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {
letter-spacing: 0.5px;
}

Adjust the 0.5px to your desired number. You could also add in the code this line:

word-spacing: 1px;

to change the space between words.

Cheers!

Thanks, the word-spacing works better… added
h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {word-spacing: 0.2em;}

Just trying out the image divider and I don’t see anything – the image seems to be the same as the background
.image_divider { clear: both; display: block; position: relative; width: 100%; height: 5px; background: url(../images/content_bg.png) repeat-x; padding-bottom: 30px; }

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Yeah, you’re right. I’ve made some changes and forgot to update. Please write footer_bg.png instead of content_bg.png – This will do the trick.

Cheers!

Why can’t I change the header background? I want to customize the header background colors beyond what is in the theme. I downloaded the original .png and replaced it with what I want it to look like. However, the old backgrounds are still there. Please advise. Thanks.

Hi there,

Where can I find the shortcode for the blog excerpt for recent posts used in the demo homepage?

In the documentation it says to enable it on homepage options but I can’t see it there and no mention of it in shortcodes, has this option been removed or am I just missing something?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

The recent blog shortcode is [recent_posts]

You can add the option limit=”” if you want to limit the number of posts to a custom number

Eg.

[recent_posts limit=”2”]

Cheers!

I created a sidebar called blogwidgets, added some widgets to it and edited the blog page to use the blogwidgets sidebar, but the sidebar showing on the blog page is still the default Main sidebar. Did I miss something?

When I tried adding it to a blog posts no sidebars show up…

SkatDesign

Hi there,

If you want to use the custom sidebars you should use the “Main Sidebar” for the blog page and create a custom sidebar for the other pages where you want to display it.

If you have other questions please send me a message through the form on my profile page.

Cheers!

Thanks for all your help – excellent service

Just one more question – hopefully the last one…

Is there any way to stop the homepage slides from showing up in search results, navigation, sitemap ?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

To exclude the slider items from search:

Go to the theme’s folder > admin > post_types and open the file “featured.php”.

On line 31 you’ll find this piece of code:


'labels' => $labels,

Just after it paste this line:


'exclude_from_search' => true,

To exclude it from the sitemap page:

Go to the theme’s folder and open the file “sitemap.php”. From line 64 to 79 remove this code:


 <div class="space_divider"></div>
        <?php $portfolio_query = new WP_Query( array('post_type' ?> 'featured-slider','showposts' => 1000 ));
    if($portfolio_query->have_posts()):
?>
        <h2>
          <?php _e( 'Featured','framework'); ?>
        </h2>
        <ul>
          <?php while ($portfolio_query?>have_posts()) : $portfolio_query->the_post(); ?>
          <li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php printf( __("Permanent Link to %s", 'framework'), get_the_title() ); ?>">
            <?php the_title(); ?>
            </li>
          <?php endwhile; ?>
        </ul>
        <?php endif;?>

Where can i change the labels for the buttons?

For instance I’d like to change the “View Portfolio” & “Send” labels to a different language.

SkatDesign

Hi there,

1. Open the file “homepage.php” and on line 59 change this code:

<?php _e(‘View Portfolio’, ‘framework’) ?>

2. The send button is an image. You can find it in the theme’s folder > images > contact_submit.png

Thank you.

One more thing. The home page intro sections doesn’t work. I go to Eirene options -> Enable intro section -> and write some stuff on the Intro Section Content.

It doesn’t appear on the home page.

I noticed that right next to the Enable intro section ON/OFF button is this text: Enable or disable the homepage portfolio section That same text is next to the Enable/Disable Recent Projects Section ON/OFF button. Does this have anything to do with this problem?

SkatDesign

Hi,

Make sure you use the “Homepage” template for your home page.

I don’t think that’s a problem. I think I’ve forgot to change the text.

Cheers!

The Featured Slider keeps breaking on this site:

kqs.ca

Whenever it breaks, I move all the slides to the trash and re-enable one or two old slides at a time.

I’ve also resorted to hitting “reset options” under Appearance | Eirene Options (which is a huge time-waster, having to recreate all of our settings).

Eventually, the Featured Slider starts to work again, and I can re-enable the current slides. But I’m not sure what exactly the fix even was.

It’s been a problem 3 times in the past month, and my client is pissed. Any ideas what could be going wrong?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Can you please explain how the slider breaks? I mean what happens, did it show any errors? I need to know more details in order to find what the problem is.

Cheers!

1 hour later and I’m still messing around with it, nothing I’ve tried will fix it.

Please have a look at the link:

kqs.ca

There are no errors. The Featured Images load on the page but do not function as a slider.

SkatDesign

Hey,

I’ve just checked out your website and checked my demo page again and there’s the same problem. It’s not the theme’s fault it’s the twitter’s server problem. When the twitter servers go down the scripts responsible for pulling the tweets mess with the theme.

Try to disable the latest tweets for a few mins and will work.

Let me know how’s going.

Cheers!

You are absolutely correct.

The Twitter feed at the bottom of the Home page never fully loads, and thus the rest of the page (including the script that compiles the Feature Slider) times out before loading.

Therefore, I have to say that the Twitter Feed and the Featured Slider are incompatible functions.

My advise to anyone using the Featured Slider is to disable the Twitter Feed.

Having said that, ginaalessia, thank you once again for your quick assistance! :)

My slider is breaking and I keep getting this error on the page.

Fatal error: Call to a member function removeChild() on a non-object in /home/content/49/8228749/html/wp-content/themes/eirene/functions.php on line 372

Can you tell me what is going wrong with the template?

Thanks!!! It worked! I wish there was a work around in the code so that the feature would work always. I am going to work on it.

I greatly appreciate your response.

Cheers!

I will try to find a solution and let you know about it.
