Great theme, I have a few questions:

1- I installed both parent and child theme and activated child theme, is that correct? (sorry I never used child themes before)

2- Also, I should make my css modifications in the blank CSS file in the child theme folder? Is that correct?

3- How do I change the logo size? I want the logo to be 330×44 px. I want my homepage to look like this mockup – http://oi61.tinypic.com/2z8uhl2.jpg

Any other suggestions to make it look like the mockup will be appreciated.

Here is my site : http://enovatekenergy.com/redesign

Thanks!

Kriesi

1.) yes

2.) You can do the modifications in the child themes style.css file :)

3.) The easist option would be to upload a the logo as it is now with space at the top and bottom so the image dimensions are 330×88px. this will center the logo perfectly and you dont have to apply any custom css

navindesigns

Thanks a few more questions. 1- How do I change the main link color on the site?

2- How do I make the background area behind “FUN FACTS” a different color (see mockup here what I am trying to achieve- http://oi60.tinypic.com/okztzc.jpg)

Here is my site- http://enovatekenergy.com/redesign

Kriesi

1.) go to enfold->styling and set the link color for each section there :)

2.) use a color section element and add the other elements inside. then edit the color section element and change the background color to your likings :)

navindesigns

Thanks. Any ideas how I can achieve the 2 large quotation shapes under the “fun facts” section? mockup – http://oi60.tinypic.com/okztzc.jpg site- http://enovatekenergy.com/redesign

Kriesi

I am afraid I am not sure about that. if you are using the blockquote tag you could then add some rules like this in addition:

Thanks. I just noticed a bug on the theme.

Whenever I scroll down the page, the logos/partner sections disappears. see screenshot of before I scroll and after I scroll – http://oi62.tinypic.com/5cpqe.jpg

I am using chrome on a mac

Kriesi
thanks. add this to your custom.css stylesheet in folder /css/ or to the quick-css panel located in your wordpress backend at Enfold->Styling:
#top .avia-content-slider, #top .avia-content-slider-inner, #top .avia-content-slider-inner .slide-entry-wrap {
-webkit-transform-style: flat;
}

that shold fix the issue. we will include it in the next update as well :)

navindesigns

Thanks

Is there a way to make the transition a bit more prominent on TESTIMONIALS? Right now I actually didn’t notice they were changing .Maybe we can have it fade in, stay for a few seconds, and then fade out… and leave it blank for a couple of seconds, and then have the next fun fact fade in? I dunno… just wanted to know if its possible to change the transition on testimonials

You can see testimonials on my site at the bottom below the FUN FACTS – http://enovatekenergy.com/redesign

Thanks

Kriesi

Hey! I am afraid thats currently not possible. What you could do is to edit a line of code to switch to a sideward slide motion instead of fade which should be more obvious.

you would need to open the file config-templatebuilder/avia-shortcodes/testimonials.php and go to line 188 which reads:

$data = AviaHelper::create_data_string(array('autoplay'=>$autoplay, 'interval'=>$interval, 'animation' => 'fade', 'hoverpause' => true));

and change it to

$data = AviaHelper::create_data_string(array('autoplay'=>$autoplay, 'interval'=>$interval, 'animation' => 'slide', 'hoverpause' => true));
navindesigns

Thanks I will try that.

One more change I need help on:

1. Main menu: How do I make the font 1 or 2 pts smaller please? and also not make it bold? Can I also have the roll over/selected menu item be this color – #005596?

Kriesi

If you are using the latest version you can change all of that in your backend at enfold->advanced styling ;)

navindesigns

I dont see any option for “Main Menu Links Hover/Current Color”. Also, how to unbold the font :(

navindesigns

One last thing on the testimonial transition:

When the fun facts text slides off, it lags on the left for a few seconds before disappearing… Is it possible to put a mask over the text so that u don’t see the text on the left (like the logos)... Lemme know if u need me to explain further…

Here is my site : http://enovatekenergy.com/redesign

Kriesi

This should do:

#top .avia-slider-testimonials.avia-testimonial-wrapper .avia-testimonial-row {
overflow: hidden;
}

PS: If you didnt find it already: in the advanced styling tab you can simply select the “main menu links” item from the dropdown and then tick the checkmark that says “Apply only to mouse hover state”

navindesigns

thanks. where do i add this?

Kriesi

you can add it in the quick css field in enfold-> general styling

navindesigns
I did. I don’t think it fixed it though :( http://enovatekenergy.com/redesign/
Kriesi

Checked your css code and it does not appear there. Are you sure you have added it correctly? are there any caching plugins that might interfere?

navindesigns

ok works now, thanks for all your help so far.

You’re example on you sales page here for FullScreen slider shows no header or footer: But the linked example is not fullscreen: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/enfold/homepage/home-v7-one-page-portfolio/

Is this not really fullscreen? or is the example just temporarily broken?

Kriesi

Hey! Fullscreen will always keep the header visible but you can also set it transparent like here, if thats what you need: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/enfold/transparent-header/

Do You ATTACH to the template some DEMO PAGES that can be edited in HTML editor? It is possible to EDIT THE SHORTCODES in HTML editor?

I already have a theme ENVISION. There’s the AWFUL VISUAL COMPOSER (content creator) and the pages can not be edited.

Kriesi

Hey! The theme comes with a demo import option that allows you to setup a similar site to the demo with one click. But most of the pages are build with out own layout editor which works similar to the visual composer, so if you want to directly edit shortcodes this might not be the theme for you :)

champ1on

Have I to understand that in the demo pages can not be changed the text, dimensions of elements and background color? If I would like to have sites similar to your demo page, just with different text and the order of the elements, I would have to create itfrom scratch?

champ1on

I could not copy the shortcodes from the demo pages?

Kriesi

Hey! Of course you can change all of that, but not in code view. you would be seeing the advanced layout builder and change all of that in there. here is a video that shows how the layout builder works:

Hi

Some quick questions about the Enfold theme:

1. Under team, can you ad email and phone number of each person? I only see icons for social media.

2. Can you define how many coloms you want under team? So the images of each person becomes smaller?

3. Is it possible to get the “black and white” effect on the portfolio homepage view as seen on your Angular theme? So when you roll-over for color preview?

Thanks for you help!

Thomas

Kriesi

1.) Yes

2.) yes (1-5 columns possible. also 2/3 + 1/3 etc)

3.) currently not sorry. the thing is that the bw effect in angular is done with javascript but there are already a few browsers that allow this option with pure css. once all modern browsers allow that feature we will add it to enfold :)

Cheers!

I’ve added Latest Portfolio widget at the footer. I’ve chosen the option to display title and excerpt.

How do I remove excerpt and place it at date time’s location? I think the changes should be at class-framework-widgets.php.

I swapped this line:
echo "<span class="news-time">".get_the_time($time_format)."</span>";
with this line:
echo "<span class="news-excerpt">".the_excerpt()."</span>";

But it didn’t work. Hope to get a little help here. Thanks!

Hey! It should be possible to do this via css now. if you drop me a link to your page i will send you a small css snippet that does what you want :)

Also, is it possible to add an outbound link at the top navigation menu? Means the link will open another site, not a page.

Kriesi

Yes of course. the theme uses the wordpress menu manager at appearance->menus which allows you to add any linke you want :)

Hi In the past, i have successfully changed the Team-member-name to an h5 from the default h3 by changing the team.php file. This doesn’t seem to be working on the latest update.

I changed line 272 in Team.php. This doesn’t seem to be working on the latest update.

HELP?

Hi, would i be able to create a mega menu like the one here: http://www.sperrytopsider.com/en/home

So it looks like it’s full width

Kriesi

Hey! I am afraid this is not possible out of the box with enfold, but this css snippet would let it appear fullscreen:

You can add that to the backend of the theme in the quick css field at enfold->general styling:


#top #header .avia_mega_div{ overflow:visible; }
#top #header .avia_mega_div:after {
position: absolute;
height: 99.5%; width: 100%;
background: #fff; content: "";
top: 0; z-index: 1111;
right: 100%;
border-top: 2px solid #c3512f;
}
#top #header .avia_mega_div:before {
position: absolute;
height: 99.5%; width: 100%;
background: #fff; content: "";
top: 0; z-index: 1111;
left: 100%;
border-top: 2px solid #c3512f;
}

VERY IMPORTANT :(

Is it possible to use the advanced layout editor in the “tabs” content area? I know I can copy and past code into it using the default editor, but I want it to easy for my client to edit the content inside the tabs. I need to build a lot of content in the tabs option, which is why I want to be able to do this.

If this is not possible, what work around do you recommend? Can I just use the advanced layout editor normally and have buttons on it so that when I click the button it will change the content on the page just like the tabs would do?

Kriesi

Hey! I am afraid the workaround you described (pasting shortcodes into tabs) is currently the only possible option to add elements into a tab…

Hi :)

I used WPML and added another language (hebrew). everything is working properly but I wanted to know, How do I embed a font just for the hebrew version?

thank you

Kriesi

Hey! I am afraid I dont know. this is definitley a question you should ask at the wpml forum, since its a plugin related question, not a theme question :)

I am sure they can write a 3 line function that solves the issue within minutes, where I would need to read the whole wpml documentation to do that ;D

How do i change the background color of the part where there is the page title and breadcrumb? Also How do I change the size of the title?

Thanks!

Kriesi

Hey!

The colors of the “Alternate Area” (enfold->styling) are applied here. If you want to change the font size add this to your custom.css stylesheet in folder /css/ or to the quick-css panel located in your wordpress backend at Enfold->Styling:
#top .main-title.entry-title {
font-size: 26px;
}

I’m running 3.9 and the latest version of Enfold, but the visual editor isn’t working. Suggestions?

Hey! Mind opening up a thread in our support forum? http://www.kriesi.at/support/

Please add a link to your site and also tell us if you are running any plugins. A more detailed error description would help as well. “not working” is very vague ;)

Tried playing around with the advanced style editing….I select an element, click edit and nothing happens. Newest version of Enfold and newest version of WordPress.

Can you add a section for additional header tags? Like you did for Analytics, but one that is in the header section right after the title and meta tags that are part of the theme already? There are a LOT of tags that people want to have in there for SEO and every time there is an update we have to remember to save that section, then update, then add them back. Otherwise a simple update to the theme breaks the SEO.

Has there been any talks on fixing and adding options for the rich snippets used? I mentioned this a while back, but most of the sections one uses automatically have specific rich snippets included that most of the time don’t apply to the content. That too affects SEO. Would be a simple fix for you guys to do. Just an added section with a dropdown with preset rich snippets to choose from, one of them being “none” and one of them being “custom” where we can manually put a specific one. The “none” option should be the default.

Kriesi

Hey!

We discussed the rich snippet feature some time ago but most people would simply be confused by any options that dont have a visual impact.

If you want to change/remove them you can do so by using a wordpress filter. also if you want to add additional header tags I would recommend to use the wp_head action to output them.

All of this combined with a child theme will make sure that you are not affected by any updates :)

So….you don’t think it’s worth doing despite hindering SEO? Seriously? WTF? Sorry, but that’s a poor and unprofessional response. SEO is very important to a site and poorly structured rich snippets can cost a web based company a lot of money. You’re forcing unnecessary and malformed SEO here. As mentioned, the rich snippets you have in there are not correct and they would not apply to most uses and content. Telling your customers to spend countless hours to filter them out and filter new ones in is not a solution. Here’s why….different rich snippets are formed differently. You can’t just filter and replace like that and have it work correctly. If you guys don’t want to do rich snippets correctly, then it’s best to just remove them from the theme. Right now if I want to create an icon section representing a service or product for sale, it comes up as a creative work, which neither is. The rich snippet code for both is completely different than a creative work snippet.

Adding a section that doesn’t have visual impact isn’t confusing. It’s simple, just add a specific section for SEO specifically so there is no confusion.

Sorry, but if you guys are going to force malformed and incorrect SEO into your theme while making it extremely difficult to edit, remove or modify, then I’ll have to take my business elsewhere and get a full refund for each and every instance I have purchased this them for myself or on behalf of a client….25+ times. I’ve been buying this theme for most of my clients and it is having an impact on SEO, which means I have to either spend money to get a new theme or hours making one myself. A great theme can lose all value with poor SEO.

Kriesi

Hey!

First of all its actually extremely simple to remove the markup with a single line of code in your child themes function.php file

add_filter('avf_markup_helper_attributes', '__return_false');

Also: I am a reasonable guy and if you show me some sources that say otherwise, say that this is a horrible thing to do, I have no problem reconsidering my position. (I couldn’t find anything like that, in fact all I found was the opposite)

I am more than a little irritated that you try to force me by threatening to try and get a refund instead of trying to discuss the issue.

If you have any trustworthy resources on the topic feel free to send them by E-mail. I will add the developer who actually implemented the feature and we can discuss a solution that we are all happy with. My address is office-at-kriesi-dot-at

Best regards Kriesi

Yes, one can easily hide the markup, but one cannot simply filter in new markup, which is what I said. What if I only wanted to filter out the snippets in certain sections? What if I need a section to have a different snippet and another section to have different snippet there?

Next, for sources where one can easily learn more about structured data and see why it is not good to have specific info marked up incorrectly….such as an item which isn’t a creative work. If you have a product, you want it marked as a product complete with the price fields, supply amount, etc.

https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2722261?hl=en https://schema.org/

I’m trying to get you to realize how important SEO compliance is for websites today. Right now, you have everything marked up as a creative work. It’s amazing that you guys can’t understand why people would not want every single list, icon, etc listed as a creative work. You guys are providing a product in which I in turn use for my clients. Each client has a different kind of website. I like the look of your theme, they like the look of this theme. That’s good for you as I keep buying it, it’s good for me because it cuts my dev time down significantly at the same rate charged….but if I have to go in and go through layers of passed code to try to edit it so that the snippets are correct, then that costs me more of my time and money to do so. If someone other than me updates the theme, all the custom edits, which you really can’t just filter in, I have to go in and edit again when they come yelling at me because the SEO has fallen due to it not displaying like it should. For instance….I get it all set up as a product so that they can add a new one and have it show up as a product with a price….then the theme gets updated and instead of showing up in search results as a product with a price listed in the search result it shows up as a creative work. If you visit schema.org you will find a LOT of different snippets and they are all formatted differently depending on what you need/want. So when the product I am using is malformed for our use and it is forcing us to use ONLY the rich snippet that you guys put in, and the author refuses to fix it, then I have a right to be just a little irritated myself.

Again, the source from Google will explain why using the correct snippet is important and the source for Schema will show you that there are a LOT of different snippets and each of them are different with different uses. Structured data isn’t something that you can just generalize and throw everything into a single category….not everything on a site should be marked up as a creative work. For your theme that includes lists, portfolios, the link in the portfolio section to view the full portfolio, icon sections, etc…nearly all of it, regardless of how you use it is thrown into a single, general category of “creative work”.

Kriesi

Hey!

I do understand what you mean, of course it would be better to use a specific markup in certain cases if one is available but I dont think that this is in any way maintainable for us, since we would need to adapt the html output for each and every template builder element to each and every possible schema.

And from what I have read so far, its better to have the very generic creative work applied than to have nothing.

But maybe my imagination is just limited here and you can show me someone who has successfully implemented such a system? I don’t think I have ever seen a theme that can do that…

If you need additional filters or arguments passed to the markup helper so you have an easier time controlling them on a programmatic level feel free to tell me what you need, this is something which would be easier to implement I guess.

Kahil
Kahil Purchased

Sorry, but no. It is better to not have rich snippets than to incorrectly have a site full of them. If you use just a handful of different items from your page builder, the page will show to have over a dozen items marked as a “creative work” when not one of them represent one. So instead of Google seeing, say, a headline, all they see is a creative work…..and so on.

There are a handful of plugins that are rich snippet generators. It isn’t really difficult to do. A dropdown with just a handful of the main ones…like the ones Google or Schema will help you auto generate. You pick the one you want from a dropdown. Typically using ajax, different forms will then be displayed with specific sets of fields for the user to fill out. No one is saying that you need to do hundreds of different kinds of snippets….just give a choice from the most commonly used ones rather than throwing everything into a single one.

Here, look at your demo site for the theme when analized by Google’s rich snippet tester. http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kriesi.at%2Fthemes%2Fenfold%2F

Just scroll down and you’ll see every icon marked as an imageobject, which isn’t needed unless you are specifically calling it out to represent and refer to another area or if it is a full image displayed, etc.

Then you’ll see the rest of the sections, regardless of what they are, all listed as creative works.

So Google is going to index the site seeing all of those specifically called out snippets. It will lead to erroneous results that come up as unrelated search results….which in turn hinders SEO.

Kriesi
Sorry, but no. It is better to not have rich snippets than to incorrectly have a site full of them.

We are back to my initial question. Mind to share the source of this claim?

Other than that: Although your request might seem like a small one to you, adding an option to chose the markup by dropdown and then offer a form that changes based on the type of markup would take a LOT of work and require a good amount of framework rewriting. even for a single generic template builder element it would probably take me a week or more, simply because the system is not meant to work that way.

To sum it up:
  • Disabling the feature is easy enough if you dont like it, but I do understand that you would like some form of markup added.
  • I am happy to add additional parameters to the markup helper so you can build your own filter logic and deactivate the markup for all elements except those were you want it to appear, based on element names, classes or whatnot. no big deal. If you use a child theme approach no update from anyone else will temper with your results.
  • What I currently can’t do is bake something like this into the template builder. You can believe me that I would do it if it were that easy but the builder is not equipped to handle the multiform approach that you describe within the modal window.

If none of this makes you happy I am sorry to lose you as a customer. (Although in all honesty, I don’t know a single theme out there that offers the option you request here)

I do care about every customers opinion, especially those who use the theme more often, but I am afraid there are limits to what I can easily add to the theme without affecting 25000 other customers who are waiting for other features and updates. Sorry for that.

Kahil Purchased

I have already shared the source….Google. If you mark something up incorrectly it will affect your SEO. It’s there in play English bud.

I do not use a child theme for most clients. No point to doing so just for a single filter and it just confuses the client when you hand it off to them if they don’t know what it is.

Other themes aren’t throwing in specific rich snippets for every single little sections, they leave that out and only do the main ones that apply to the page and headings alone. Your themes are the only ones I have seen that attached “creative works” to every little section/widget/etc.

Either give us control over the rich snippets so we your customers can control our SEO, or just leave them out and let us put them in ourselves within the text block. Anyone using your themes with this in it are forced to use the SEO that you put in….that isn’t right and it affects rankings….as spelled out in plain English by Google. Sorry, it’s clear that you guys aren’t SEO experts as anyone doing SEO professionally wouldn’t throw one in all over the place like that. Just look at your demo site in the testing tool. A page like that should not look like that in that testing tool…..it’s a mess in terms of SEO.

Kriesi

Well, I cant find it so would you mind quoting the passage you are talking about?

I am running several sites with this theme and all of them are performing great. (Most of them exceptionally well and much better than the way the ranked before) I have seen others use the theme with great success so forgive me if I don’t change code that affects 26000 websites based on something someone says without a quote or link to the actual words “this is bad for your site”, since based on my experience everything works great.

I will add a general option to deactivate the markup with a checkbox, just so we can end this discussion. In the future please use child themes since I don’t know if we will ever add anything that you don’t like and I probably wont do this again.

Hello, your theme are very great, congrats! I need to know how to remove the date from posts meta info, I’ve tried without success. Regards.

Hey! If you are running the latest version of the theme (2.7)

You should be able to remove the date by going to enfold->blog layout in your backend and unchecking the option for date
