ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS THEME! I currently have my website www.positivelifetips.com with Tumblr. However I am really wanting to switch over to wordpress as there is so much more freedom. I am 99% of the time only going to be posting square images, the other 1% could be youtube videos. SO my concern is that using this theme my square images will be cropped into rectangles. I like how my current theme shows the entire image. I am wondering if I go with this theme is there a way to make it so that the theme does not crop my images? also if I just insert an image into a post would it still show up on the homepage? or do I have to choose a featured image? if I do choose a featured image is there away again to make not crop it? I hope this all makes sense! Thank you so much! Jhon

Hi,

Thank you very much for your interest. You will need to upload post featured images – which you can add in any size – the theme will crop them to required sizes. There are image sizes defined in the theme, however if you want to change the image sizes, you can very easily do that by editing a few lines in the theme.

The theme will crop the images to multiple sizes, and you will have the original image sizes also, so for example if you want to display the full size images in the single posts, you can display the full size image etc.

Default-user

So I would have to upload a featured image along with adding the same image into the post? Is it easy to change the format so ALL image croppings will be square? I’m just really worried about only showing half of a picture on the homepage or in the featured images. When someone visits my site I want them to see the FULL square image.

Default-user

My images are all 640×640

wellthemes

As you can see in the demo that the homepage displays smaller version of the images (it cannot display 640px images on homepage because they are too large).

However in the single post you can easily display the full size images (640×640 or any other what you upload). Yes, right now you will need to upload the featured image, there you only need to click on a checkbox to insert the image in the post, so its very easy to add the image in the post. However if you want to automatically display the image in the post, it can be done too.

Default-user

Yes of course. So would it just scale the image down then from 640×640 to like 80×80 or something? or would it actually just only show a part of the image?

So it is possible then to make the image dimensions for the homepage slider to be square instead of a rectangle? And change it so everything else would be square too? And great that I can easily just check the box to insert it into the post.

Thank you SO much for the support! I really really appreciate it, Jhon

wellthemes

You’re welcome :)

The theme uses WordPress function images function, which nicely crops the images which you upload. The crop functions make sure that your image looks nice. If you look at the theme demo, you can see that some of the images in the featured categories on homepage are same as slider images but cropped to smaller size, so you can see the quality of the cropped images.

Yes, you can change all images on homepage to make them square, I’d recommend you to keep the images width same, as it fits best in the layout.

Hope it answers your questions, if you have more questions, do not hesitate to ask :)

Default-user

if you haven’t check out my website, Positivelifetips.com, you can see that all of my images are comprised of just quotes. I am worried that this Images Function would distort the pictures when it resized them?? Other than that they quality as you said is very good!

And yes I agree I would make the height the same size as the width so it fits best with the layout!

Default-user

or would they not be distorted as I would be uploading them as squares anyway and the new layout size would be square too?

Default-user

I guess if you were to take a rectangle image and resize it to a square like the Images Function does then we would have distortion but if it is just taking a square picture and making it smaller there would not be distortion. If any of this makes sense haha

wellthemes

Hi, The images will not be distorted when they are cropped. You can change the image sizes which are defined in the theme. You only need to change the heights and make them same as width, that way you will get the square images and they will fit in the layout.

Default-user

Awesome! So if I go with this theme could you give me the changes that need to be made? If so is it easy to change? Thank you!

wellthemes

Sure, all you need to do is change the numbers for the height in the functions.php file and same changes for height in the style.css file. It should be easy and I’m here to help :)

¿Can i modify de header settings to use all the space, including the add space?

wellthemes

Sure, its very easy. You can simply remove the ad space from the header. Just open header.php file and look for the ad code there and remove it. Then you can open style.css file and increase the width of logo class to 100%. Hope it helps :)

Hi!

First, I just totally love what you have done with this theme!

I wonder if it is possible to make the “featuret posts”-widget show random posts from a category, and not just the latest ones? And how do I do this?

wellthemes

Thank you very much.

Sure, thats possible and its quite easy. Which featured posts you meant?

Default-user

The widget: “Well themes: Carousel”

Default-user

And two more questions:

1. How can i Translate the theme?

2. How can I remove the date and number of comments on the front page?

wellthemes

1. Here’s how you can show random posts in carousel widget:

Open widget_carousel.php file from the framework/widgets folder and look for this line around line 57:
$recent_posts = new WP_Query(array( 'showposts'
Change that to:
$recent_posts = new WP_Query(array( 'orderby' => 'rand', 'showposts'

2. The theme is translation ready, you only need to create the .po file. You can use a free software called poedit. Please see this page for detailed information about translating the theme: http://wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/theme-development/translating-your-theme/ (See step 3)

3. If you want to remove the date and comments from the homepage sections, open the files from the includes folder and remove the post meta from those files.

Default-user

Thank you very much!

Default-user

Hi again! When I use POEDIT to translate your default.po in the language folder. Should I just save it as nb-NO.po (Norwegian Bokmål, Norway), and place the nb-NO.po and nb-NO.mo files in the language folder? Sorry for bothering you, but it wont work when I do this…

Default-user

Even more questions:

1. Is it possible to remove the buttons below “Latest posts” on the front page. I just want a “next” and “previous” button, not the ability to jump to a page and to the last one.

2. How do I remove the meta-info from the “Latest posts” on the front page?

I managed to remove the meta-info fom the other featured categories etc. Thank you very much so far! Great theme!

wellthemes

1. Save that file with the name nb_NO.mo in the language folder and then open the wp-config.php file from the main wordpress directory and look for this line:

define ('WPLANG', ''); 

Change that to:

define ('WPLANG', 'nb_NO');

It should work then.

Note, you should use the WordPress in Norwegian bokmål language so that the dates and other Wordpress functions are translated. You can download that here: http://nb.wordpress.org/

2. To remove the entry meta from the posts, open the content-excerpt.php file from main theme directory and look for this div around line #34

div class="entry-meta

Remove this div and its contents. Note that this will remove the entry meta from the posts in archives also. If you want to keep that, and only want to remove from homepage posts, you will need to copy the contents of that file inside the posts loop on the index.php file.

3. If you want to remove the pagination links from the homepage posts, look for this line from the homepage:

wt_pagination
Replace that with:
 posts_nav_link();  
See if it works. You can see more about the post links here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Next_and_Previous_Links

Hope it helps, if you liked the theme and support please remember to rate the theme. You can rate it from your downloads page on themeforest. Thanks.

Hi

Can you pls tell me the import rule i can use for style.css – that is to create a child theme please? or maybe if you could give me the entire code that will be very useful. This is what i found in codex..and this is how i changed it to use in mine but it does not work.

/* Theme Name: Eris Description: Eris Child Theme. Author: Sam Template: wt_eris @import url(”../wt_eris/style.css”);

Thank you

wellthemes
Hi, You can import the css file of parent theme using
@import url("../wt_eris/style.css");
Please check this page for detailed information on creating child themes: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
Default-user

thanks for that. it is what i am using but still not working. what name do i use for the template.

is it eris? does capitalization make a difference?

Default-user

ok pls ignore this one. Managed to get it working. for the purposes of others who might need to do this, pls see the full code below.

/* Theme Name: Eris Child Theme Author: Use your name here Template: wt_eris Version: 0.1.0 */

You can use FTP program to upload the polls plugin, or simply zip that folder to upload via WordPress.

zipping the folder and uploading worked perfectly thanks for this

Thank you very much for the help so far!

I rated your theme a 5 out of 5 stars!

Another question:

Is it possible to change the animation of the Carousel widget from slide to fade? How can I do this?

wellthemes

Thank you very much.

By default, it does not have the fading effect but you can do that in following way:

Open custom.js file from the js folder and look for this line around line #26:
jQuery(".sidebar-carousel-posts").jCarouselLite({
On the next line you will see this:
visible: 2,    
Carefully replace the above line with following:
afterEnd    : function(el) { jQuery(el).parent().fadeTo(500, 1); },
beforeStart : function(el) { jQuery(el).parent().fadeTo(500, 0); },
speed       : 0,

Now it should fade.

Did you mean shadow around the main container? Here’s how you can do that: Open style.css, look for this around line #102:

#container { 

There remove the box-shadow property.

Default-user

thanks for this. I had to change the shadow box tag to none though. just deleting the property completely did not work for me.

i followed the below advice changing pininterest to linkedin in all areas. However my linkedin image is still not showing. When you hover the area you can tell there is a link. When you click it, it takes you to our linked in page however the image does not show. Can you pls tell me what i may be doing wrong pls. Thanks.

http://www.ghanalandlords.com/

1. Open header.php file and look for these lines around line #93 div class=”top-right” ul Add this line after that:

  • Pinterest
  • Add your pinterest url above. 2. Open the style.css file. Look for this around line # 201: #header .top-right ul{ list-style:none; margin-top: 7px; In above code, replace the margin-top: 7px with margin: 7px 0 0; 3. Around line 239, add this code: #header .top-right a.pinterest{ background: url(“images/pinterest18.png”) no-repeat left center; } Please note the above line assumes that the pinterest icon is a png image with name pinterest18, which is in the images directory.
    wellthemes

    It is because you do not seem to have the linkedin image (linkedin18.png) in the images folder. Make sure that you have the image with the name linkedin18.png in images folder.

    Default-user

    my linkedin18.png image is definately in the main image directory. there are other sub folders but it is the folder named image. is that where it is supposed to be?

    Also, latest post pagination on the homepage not working. pls see link – http://www.ghanalandlords.com/page/2/

    my conatct page has also got the Eris contcat box at the bottom of it even though i am not using the contact us page template. How can i remove the contact box. pls see link – http://www.ghanalandlords.com/contact/

    thanks in advance

    wellthemes

    1. The linkedin image is not loading, see this: http://d.pr/i/fbfo It should be in main images directory of the theme which is in the wt_eris theme folder.

    2. Send me your index.php file, i will check the pagination.

    3. I dont see any problem on your contact page.

    Default-user

    pls see this link regarding the image. -

    also can you give me an email add where to send the index.php please.

    wellthemes

    Hi,

    As I mentioned in my previous email that you need to upload the image in the images folder which is in the main theme directory. You can upload image in that directory by using the FTP program. My email is info at wellthemes.com

    Default-user

    As i have shown with the image above, the image is exactly where you asked for it to be placed. I will be grateful if you could provide further assistance on why this is not working rather than insisting on me doing something which i have already done days ago. The image is in the same location where the facebook image and twitter image are. I notice a difference between your images and the one i uploaded. pls see below. is that the reason why the image is not uploading?

    twitter18.png PNG image data, 18×18, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced

    linkedin18.png PNG image data, 18×18, 8-bit colormap, non-interlaced

    thanks Sam

    Also found the following errors when i right clicked and inspected elements on homepage.

    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) http://www.ghanalandlords.com/images/linkedin18.png

    wellthemes

    Hi, I have tried to explain multiple times in my previous replies that you need to upload that linedin18.png image in the “images” folder which is in the theme main directory. As you can see from the above error that it is looking for the image in the images folder, while you have uploaded in /uploads/2013/04 folder. You need to upload the image to the images folder using FTP program. If you cannot do that, then change the image path in the style.css and use the above path where you uploaded the image.

    How can i display last updated date at the top of my posts?

    Thanks

    wellthemes
    You can use the WordPress function:
    the_modified_date(); 
    to display last modification time of the post. For example place this in the post loop:
    Last modified: <?php the_modified_date(); ?>

    You can read more details here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_modified_date

    I dont know if this is a bug or not but I have some widgets in both my sidebars, and when I resize my window(or view the site on an iPad) the widgets from the right sidebar(which dissapears), gets messed up at the bottom(above footer).

    Look at the bottom of this picture of my site, i looks like the articles in the middle wont let the right widgets stack under the left ones.

    http://bildr.no/image/1432545.jpeg
    wellthemes

    Hi, On the smaller screens, you should view the content on top and both sidebars widgets below the content and above the footer. This should not create any mess instead it should arrange them below. However if you think the arrangement of the widgets is not good, you can try to rearrange the widgets in the sidebar and then see.

    If you do not like that layout style in the smaller screens, you can easily edit it as you want. You can see the media queries for different devices at the end of the style.css file, there you can change the content and sidebar widths and positions or change any other elements. If you still face problem, let me know.

    Default-user

    Thank you, I will try it out!

    And one more question or “bug report”, the Widget that lets you have a carousel with posts. Sometimes if the first shown post has a short title and only requires one line the widgets resizes to fir the post and title, but if the second post has a longer title that requires two lines the second line will not be shown.

    wellthemes

    Hi,

    The widget has fixed height for the post titles. You can change it in the style.css file.

    Can you please advise how i can change the background color for the footer and also change the colour for the text and links in the footer please. thanks

    sam

    wellthemes

    To change the text color and the background color of the footer, look for this in style.css file around line #1891

    #footer{

    There you can change the background and the color.

    For the footer links color look for this, a few lines after the above:
    #footer a{
    Similarly you can make changes in any other elements you wish. I’d suggest you to use some debugging tool such as Firefox chrome or Chrome inspect element to check the css classes used in the theme, then you can easily find them in style.css and change their styles there.

    Sidebars don’t show on Iphone or on Ipad !!

    I’ve just designed my wordpress blog with Eris Responsive them and it sets perfectly on my computer, see http://www.ilteneromomento.com

    But when I look on the website on my Iphone -> it only shows the central bar (and not the left and right sidebars) Ipad -> the left sidebar shows but not the right one !

    How could I do ? I bought this theme, and it said it was perfectly designed for iphone and ipads !!

    wellthemes

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for purchasing the theme. This is a responsive theme which means it adjusts its layout according to the device screen size. Since the mobile phone and tablets do have small screen, it displays the content first, and then displays the sidebars below the content.

    This is done with the media querieis which are located at the end of style.css file. If you want to make any changes in the layout of mobile devices, you can change it in the media queries of the mobile. If you do not want to use the responsive layout, then you can simply remove the media queiries from the style.css file.

    If you need help regarding any issue, let me know and I will be happy to help you. :)

    Hi,

    is it possible to force the wt-slider(the main front page slider) to always show the absolute newest post first? It seams like it now takes the three newest posts from the gived category, but shows them in a random order. Thanks.

    wellthemes

    Hi, It should display the newest posts first. However if a newer post won’t have the featured image, it will skip it. If it still does not, then you can do this: Open feat-slider.php file from the includes folder and look for the line (around line # 14) which ends with this:

    '&posts_per_page=5';
    Change that to
    '&posts_per_page=5&order=ASC';

    Hi There, how do i change the font style for the menu bar and also how do i remove the blue overlay on the images.

    thanks

    wellthemes

    Hello,

    1. To change font style in main menu, look for this around line #315:
    #main-menu ul li a {

    2. To remove the overlay, remove the .overlay class from the style.css file. Its around line #524 to 598.

    I would recommend you to use the debugging tool such as Firebug, which will help you to find out the element styles and their location in the css file, then you can easily change the styles.

    Hi, I will just say again that this is really a wonderfull theme, and it is worth much more than $40!

    I have one more question considering the mobile version/resizing.

    Is it possible to change the width of the page and content on the smallest resizing, since almost every mobile device has a much wider screen, and large borders will appear on the mobile site on each side of the content?

    Thanks again for the amazing theme!

    wellthemes

    Hi, Thank you very much for your kind words. Yes, you can easily change the width for the smallest devices. Open the style.css file and look for the mobile devices media queries, these are located in the end of the file. Look for the section 7.3 there. There you can change the container, content and other elements widths.

    Hi again.

    The translation of the theme worked well, there is one thing that wont get translated and I can’t find where it is located somehow..

    When you resize the theme the menu will disapear, and be replaced by a drop-down menu, the title “Navigate to…” will not be translated by the .po file, and I cant find where I can change this manually. In which file is the text “Navigate to…” coded?

    Thanks.

    wellthemes

    You can translate that in custom.js file in the js folder on line # 4.
