Hi friends,

I never use a tumblr for professional issue , but i want to try. So after i buy this theme? Will i need a host? Or just install in tumblr with out extra costs?

PixelMoxie

Hi!

You won’t need a host. You simply create a new Tumblr account and install the theme on your main blog, or on a secondary blog on an existing account. You can leave your site domain as a Tumblr subdomain or use a custom one (http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/custom_domains).

Kind regards,

Sergio

Hi there,

I’m trying to create images for the slider bar. What is the size? I keep having trouble creating images that perfectly fit!

Thanks

PixelMoxie

Hi there,

The demo images for the slider are 1140×500 for fullwidth images and 570×500 for the image-plus-text slides. Those dimensions seem to work well. You can make them taller if you need to, just remember to keep them proportional (the smaller images should be half as wide but have the same height as the fullscreen images).

I hope that helps!

I can’t seem to be able to make the Instagram photos show up! I put in the access token but it doesn’t seem to work. My Instagram ID is brandmentalist. Can you please help?

PixelMoxie

Please check your authorized applications on your Instagram account (http://goo.gl/YMlckL) and make sure jQInstaPics is on that list. If it’s not, the token was revoked access and you need to create a new one by visiting jQInstaPics homepage and clicking on the “Retrieve my details” button.

If this doesn’t work, please provide a link to your site so I can look into it.

Best regards,

Sergio

Hello,

purchased your theme and installed it successfully on tumblr. My question: Can I “activate” easily (the settings of) Demo Two or do I have to configure all the things (green background etc.) manually?

PixelMoxie

Hi there,

Thanks for your purchase!

Sadly, there’s no way to do that automatically—all colors have to be changed manually.

I put together a color table with all of demo #2 color values, I hope that helps a little:

Thank you for your very fast reply/support. The color table helps me a lot!!

Hi, I have been using your theme for a while now and it has worked great! I just have a little question… I want to make the images in my posts larger, where can I change that? I have been trying to do it for a while and can’t seem to get it done.

Thanks for your time! :)

PixelMoxie

Hey there,

Not sure what you mean. The images span the full width of the left column—about 660px wide. They can’t be displayed wider than that, but if you click on them they will open at full size on the lightbox.

Cheers :)

Hello, I just bought your theme. It’s great but how do I change the order of the menu items on the navigation bar? I want to move the Ask Me Anything link at the very right while moving the Browse menu closer to the home button.

PixelMoxie

I just replied to your email. Let me know how that works for you ;)

Default-user

Thank you so much for solving my problem so quickly!

PixelMoxie

No problem! Glad I could help :)

Is there an updated installation guide? The one I’m following seems outdated. TUMBLR Settings have changed. And directions with TextEdit 1.9 on Mac don’t match your directions. I’m stuck.

PixelMoxie

Sorry about that. Please refer to the documentation of one of the newer themes, as the installation steps are the same, the only thing that changes is the file you need to open: http://goo.gl/pHWhzf

Follow the steps outlined here to configure TextEdit to work with HTML: http://goo.gl/AQzSrv

If you still need help, please send me an email using the form on my profile page.

Cheers!

Super Helpful. I appreciate it!

Hello, I searched for the word “population” in your demo theme, it was not found. Resulted in a blank space where the results are supposed to be. When I search for a word in my blog, it’s not found either, unless it’s in the title. Is that a bug ?

PixelMoxie

Looks good! The following Custom CSS will integrate the input field a little better with the rest of the sidebar:

#site-meta form {
    padding: 20px;
}

#st-search-input {
    width: 100%;
    height: 30px;
    box-sizing: border-box;
}

Cheers!

I have purchased this theme for a client. The client loves the theme but apart for one issue. When seeing tags he would prefer for the slider and service blocks NOT to be shown. It’s weird that the slider and service blocks are presented AGAIN to the user when he’s seeing a post page or a tag page. http://blog.qinergy.com/tagged/capteur

Is there a way to make it so that the slider and service blocs are only shown on the HOME page. Not on any other page ?

PixelMoxie

You can do that with some minor changes to the theme. On line 1198 change the <div id="page"... tag and add the following to the ‘class’ attribute:

{block:TagPage}tag-page{/block:TagPage}
{block:SearchPage}search-page{/block:SearchPage}

Make sure it looks like this:

http://i.imgur.com/i5itUED.png

Then add the following CSS rules (Advanced options > Add Custom CSS):

.tag-page #homepage-slider,
.search-page #homepage-slider,
.tag-page #featured,
.search-page #featured {
    display: none;
}

That will hide the slider and services blocks on tag and search pages.

Let me know if that helped!

Hi, do you know a trick to allow to put a title to photo and video posts in Tumblr ? I’ve been looking all over. Great theme by the way

PixelMoxie

Sure, just highlight the first paragraph on the post caption (your “title”), and make it bold, as stated on the docs:

I cannot find where to change the color of the Page Hero Content. I looked everywhere in the theme settings. Do we have to change it by CSS ?

ragots
ragots Purchased

Do I have need to add a custom CSS ?

ragots
ragots Purchased

I ended up adding a custom CSS. Is that the way to do it ?

PixelMoxie

There’s a color option labeled “Page Hero Text”, that should do it. Either way, it’s an easy thing to change with some custom CSS.

I would like to add a tag cloud somewhere in the sidebar or below, but I do not see that widget in the settings. Can you advise how to add a tag cloud that automatically list all the tags used on the blog ? Thanks

PixelMoxie

Good find, I’ll bookmark that one. Because that functionality isn’t provided natively by Tumblr, that’s the sort of thing that’s handled best with external tools or plugins.

I knew about such a tool, but it involved running some PHP scripts, so you needed a web server. This one seems to be a pure JavaScript solution. Let me know if it works well for you.

Cheers!

A small glitch in your otherwise great theme. When anonymous ask is enabled. This is what happens to the Ask button.

http://mixfun.free.fr/skitch//anonymous-ask-enabled-20141019-002413.jpg

How can we fix that ?

PixelMoxie

Sure, that box needs to have a fixed height, and when anonymous asks are enabled it needs to be a little taller. Try adding this to your custom CSS (Advanced options > Add Custom CSS):

#ask_box {
    height: 260px
}

Let me know if it helps!

Hello, is the slider adjustable in it’s height so that it looks more like on the “Supple”-Theme (= not as huge as in the “Ellisium” demo)?

PixelMoxie

Hi there,

The height of the slider will depend on the content inside the slides, images and/or text. Ellisium’s slider is also flexible, meaning that it will accommodate slides of different heights.

The images on the demo slider are 1140×500 pixels. If you were to use only images for your slider, you could make them 1140×320 pixels for a slider that isn’t that tall, for example.

I hope that answers your question!

Best,

Sergio

Hello, this one may sound silly but, here it goes: I want the Slider Buttons to open in a new page (target = blank) when clicked. I use this theme a blog for the main company site, so we want the user to open a new page and go to our main site when they click on the slider buttons.

How can I do that ? I have to dig into the HTML ? If so, which line ?

Thanks

Never mind. I went into the code, searched for “large button shadow has-arrow” and added target=”_blank”

PixelMoxie

Sounds like you found the way :) Let me know if you need help with anything else. Cheers!
