Hi Guys.

Can you please let us know when v2.3 is coming?

plusquare

Version 2.3 shouldn’t be for soon. We’ve released some sub versions, it is now in 2.2.4 it is a very stable version finally :)

What would you like to see in a 2.3 version by the way?

Hi, I want to have my logo center aligned. i can see the logo in header options can be offset by particular px from the left. In a way i can get it center aligned that way, but it wont be same for different screen sizes. I wanted to know if it can be possible to have it aligned by 50% of the screen. like how you have it for the filter box on the portfolio page.

Please Let me know if there is an option for that or if can be acheived by custom css?

thanks .

Hi Pratik,

The menu is a lot more tricky to center, you’d probably have to change javascript and have some good knowledge of it, to center it. If I had done it already I’d send you the code, otherwise I’m adding it to the wishlist so we can add to a next version.

Regards

Default-user

No problem, thanks. i know it might not be common enough to have centre aligned layouts, but the creative freedom this theme offers, it would be great to have such an option too in future versions.

Thanks for your help, will keep on posting queries as and when they pop up. right now im having fun using this theme

plusquare

Great, that’s what we want to hear :)

Don’t forget to rate it, cheers!

In addition to my previous post about the various image sizes being extremely large I am now also figuring out that Essenza is not serving the right versions of images either. Look at this gtmetrix page analysis, for example:

http://gtmetrix.com/reports/spotbotmedia.com/7TMDcCcc

If you click on “scale images” you will see that Essenza is serving the full resolution 1920×1080 image file even though it is being scaled down to 606×341. Why isn’t Essenza serving one of the smaller images that are being created during upload? What’s the point of creating them if they are not being used?

Also if I open spotbotmedia.com on my iPhone the picture of our building at the bottom of the page is being served in full resolution at 1500×901, even though, the iPhone is just displaying 640×377 pixels. Why wouldn’t Essenza serve the 700×420 pixel version it created on our server?

Very frustrated that our page is so slow due to all of these image problems. Would really appreciate if you could have a close look at what’s happening here.

plusquare

The update should be accepted in a few hours today yes :)

As to the images, have you spotted anywhere else that has that behavior? I’ll include an option to set the image resize quality percentage in the TC :)

Cool. Would you mind including a change log? It’s always so helpful to us if we can see what has changed and what files were affected in case something goes wrong during deployment.

I was able to change the image resize quality in the php file but I imagine having it accessibility in the theme would help others a lot!

Which brings me to my final question: should the original, full size, full resolution images ever be used by essenza or should essenza always point to one of the images created by the rezise theme? This answer would help me a lot on optimizing my workflow. Thanks.

plusquare

Essenza always resizes the image to the more suitable size, where the resize script is run. So for example in a slider, the images are never the original ones, but also a resized version of it

As to the changelog we do have one: http://plusquare.pt/changelog/essenza/

Not as updated as we wanted though and yes displaying which files changed would be great but we’ve been using all the spare time we have for fixes :P

Regards

i would like to add to what eierund has mentioned above.

I agree with him/her, my site also loads very slow, the images resized by wordress by default are ok. ( i guess wordpress creates three versions) Their filesizes are all below the original uploaded image.

However the filesize of images created by essenza after adding images to pages and shortcodes , are almost always bigger than the original. Even for images with resolution same or lower than original, filesizes are mostly bigger.

I tired this with both below as well as above 1600px images. Its same thing.

Please help with this issue, its making site very slow and i dont want to compormise with my image quality by lowering resolution of original images.

Thanks

default is 100 here, i guess ill try different increments and check

thanks

Also how and where to enable gzip compression?

plusquare

That you need to ask to your server company. Or if you have a vps or dedicated server you can easily set it yourself.

Hello, having some bugs with the latest version. Twitter feed not loading and getting error of outdated browser please download latest version on all browsers except Safari. Created a support ticket on ticksy. worked fine till update. Please help.

plusquare

Can you show me the link to it? Maybe you need to put the html entity of that character, like: &

Give it a try, and let me know what you got

Cheers

Default-user

I don’t think I can- it’s the name of the site. Also, could you tell what are the latest updates to theme?

plusquare

Hi, sorry didn’t have time to update the changelog, but were mainly bugs fixes to some issues in the admin area.

Regards

How do I update the Essenza Theme in WP to the latest version 2.2.5 without having to delete the current version first (2.2.3). As I get an error message saying that folder already exists?

Very basic question I know, but I’m a novice!

Default-user

Also, is Gravity Forms add-on & WooCommerce compatible with Essenza?

plusquare

Hi,

As to updating essenza you can see here: http://plusquare.pt/faq/essenza/ a step by step on how to do it

As to gravity forms, we recommend to use contact form 7 if you want more features on the contact form than the ones our supports, you can also see how to integrate it on the faq page.

Essenza is not ready for ecommerce, sorry.

Regards

Hi, just came across this issue. When working in image button shortcode, after making all the changes and saving, it works the way it should on website. But when trying to go again inside the shortcode option, the settings go back to default. Not all settings, but some , like the checkboxes for the between shader, image on hover, text on hover, as well as the animation type go back to default

these issues were also present with the portfolio page, but i guess u solved it in recent updates.

Thanks

Default-user

the video play icon that you have here http://essenza.plusquare.pt/corporate/moment/

it should change the colour for this play icon right? I dont think so it is changing it. Could you please check at your end.

I am on the 2.2.6 version

hey, i just cleared my browser cache adn it changed, it works, sorry for the trouble

Hi, i want to delete a seperator line in the description hover of the masonry portfolio but i cant seem to find the matching CSS anywhere.

Would be great if you guys could help me out here!

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

You must remove the hr html tag, so open essenza\plusquare_admin\config-frontend\php\ajax.php and remove the hr tag at line 115. You can remove the whole line :)

Let me know if you got it.

Cheers

Default-user

Yesss, worked like a charm:-)

Thank you so much!

Hi Theme Team,

i love your Theme and i bought it a few months ago. Now i created a Masonry Gallery for the Home Side. There is a dark grey loader at the beginning. I don’t like grey. How can i change the background color of the loader?

regards

plusquare

Hi,

Not really sure what you mean, are you talking about the cover color when a page is loading? Or the actual loading gif? Or the loading div at the bottom when loading more items in a masonry page?

Regards

im talking about the cover color when the page is loading..

plusquare

Hi,

You can change that at Template Customizer -> General Settings -> Content Cover

You can change the color and opacity there :)

Hey guys,

Maybe you can add this on your list for the next update.

- add thumbnail previews to the search results page - add category/section to the search results page

I noticed its quiet confusing if there are lots of results listed regarding to a search input

kind regards!

plusquare

Added to the wishlist :)

Thanks!

Hey guys,

what web host are you using to host your Essenza demo pages? I am noticing that your load times are MUCH better than our site which is hosted at Mediatemple.

Even though, you portfolio page is slightly larger it loads in just 1.8s: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/dXWTl0/http://essenza.plusquare.pt/creative/ Our site takes 4.61s: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/cU9VDd/http://spotbotmedia.com/portfolio

In particular our initial connection takes much longer and the admin-aja.php takes much longer to load.

Besides this my only question would be why our site has an initial re-routing on the first results line while your page manages to skip this step. That almost takes a second.

Looking forward to your thoughts.

Thanks,

Philipp

Oh man I just saw that you guys are hosting with Media temple as well! Are you using the Grid server, though? If so why are your load times so much better than ours?

plusquare

We’re using a virtual host from media temple yes. With our vps we can configure it as we want, dunno if you have much control with the grid server package, can you for example enable gzip compression? Would speed up a lot the site this option alone

Hi!

I wanted to ask what changes are made to the theme ?

Thanks

plusquare

Hi,

You can see the changelog here: http://plusquare.pt/changelog/essenza/

Although we didn’t update for the latest subversions.

Regards

I’ve installed the latest version (2.2.6) and got this message:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/content/p3nexnas03/66/2052866/html/wp-content/themes/essenza/plusquare_admin/config-common/php/google_fonts.php on line 26

Can you help me to fix it?

Thanks

plusquare

We did sort that out for version 2.2.7

If you define the google api on 2.2.6 though you won’t have that error. Was a problem with checking if the option was set or not.

Hi,

instead of the twitter feed on the left side of the footer I would like to integrate a “subscribe to our newsletter” box and button from Mailchimp there.

How could I go about something like that with the Essenza theme?

Thanks,

Philipp

Hi Philipp,

You can add text(html) instead of the twitter feed there yes, on the template customizer.

Ok great! Any tip where I can find this template customizer?

Thanks!

Philipp

plusquare

Hi Philipp,

Essenza tab -> General Settings -> Footer

Disable twitter feed and change the footer text there :)

Regards

Hi, is there a way to save or export all the settings changed in the template customiser so that they can be imported again later. thanks

plusquare

Hi,

As to the options, try creating a wordpress installation on your local machine so you can import demos and see how we’ve done things then recreate on your live site.

As to expo we don’t have a wp version of expo, so things would have to be done with the raw module in the page builder, same goes for easy scroll. Would need to make some changes to php as well. I can help you with that. Easy scroll would be way harder to implement for essenza as it can’t be added to placeholders easily without changing the page builder itself.

So in conclusion expo is rather easy to make something although remember it is not responsive, so it won’t scale, it does work on mobile but it is not responsive, easy scroll don’t recommend at all as probably you won’t be able to make what you want

Regards

Default-user

thanks, ill figure it out how to install locally.

As for the expo, i would have liked it to be responsive, will leave it for time being, thanks anyways.

plusquare

I recommend you use xampp for the local installation :)

We have plans to refactor it and make as a wordpress plugin, if we do it’ll definitely be responsive and have some extra features.

Hi,

regarding the slider, is it possible to have image of different sizes in same slider ? i have a square, landscape and portrait image which i’m trying to put in a slider. But given how i can only set the height percentage for the slider, it usually cuts other images of different sizes in same slider is there a way to have the images to fit into the slider properly? in your portfolio items, u have given option to have an image fit as normal / fit / fullscreen for the fullscreen slider. If a similar option can be set while creating slider items, that would help alot.

Thanks

plusquare

No, it is javascript not css. You’de have to change it in the actual slider script, don’t really advice unless you’re confortable with js.

Regards

Default-user

no im a novice, fine ill wait for the update, right now ill jsut make images with extra strips to the sides of image so that it doesnt get cut off, thanks

plusquare

No problem, we’ll try to include it for the next 1-3 subversions

ticket #186870

Not seeing other solution but going to another web hosting provider :)

Our support guy will get to the support ticket as soon as possible.

Sorry for the trouble, we’ll analyze if we can speed things up for slower servers.

Hi,

I have 7 sites running on this server, and I have never been experiencing any speed issues so far.

The only exception is essenza tho.

Is there any other way to solve this?

Thanks

plusquare

Hi,

Essenza is a media powerhouse so it needs the best setup to a great performance, gzip compression is a very good feature for a server, your hosting company can easily activate it on their servers they just don’t, to not use more resources for each user. Read here how gzip can speed up a lot your site: http://betterexplained.com/articles/how-to-optimize-your-site-with-gzip-compression/

Anyway, I’ve noticed also some thing I could optimize for the slider that would speed up the process. Will get to it as soon as I can. Will include it for next version :)

Regards

Hello,

is it possible to keep the change log up to date? I’d like to know what changes were made the last few days ;) Thanks.

Hi,

the pasue autoplay when mouse over option in slider doesnt seem to be working for me. can you please check at your end?

thanks

btw im on 2.2.7

Default-user

Also, while working with image button, I was trying to have the “text over” have different duration than the overall animation.

I managed to figure out the code in chrome element inspector after selecting div.ib_over_text

element.style {transition: all 1s cubic-bezier(0.19, 1, 0.22, 1);}

setting the time here does make it work the way i want, but i cant figure out what is the code that needs to be put in essenza custom CSS to maek teh changes permanent.

kindly help with the same

regards

plusquare

Hi,

Try setting the style to !important, like:
element.style {transition: all 1s cubic-bezier(0.19, 1, 0.22, 1) !important;}

Not sure it’ll work though, give it a try and let me know.

As to the other issue, I’ll look into it as soon as i can.

Thanks for reporting :)

I have a big problem with “Creative Demo” Dummy Content, when i try to edit portfolio, in detail the Images section the changes disappear once I save.

I opened a ticket but I have not yet received a reply

plusquare

Hi,

We’ve sorted that out, update to version 2.2.7 and it should work perfectly :)

Sorry for the trouble
