Great, thanks for the reply on the multiple portfolio issue. We are still having some issues with multiple portfolios. Here are the issues we are having: 1) When using a single column portfolio, we want separate text or only an excerpt of the entry to display in the portfolio list. Currently the single list displays all of the text and images contained in the detail page for each portfolio entry. Is this possible? 2) When clicking on an image in a single column or 2 column portfolio list, it brings up a lightbox with a gallery of photos that displays all the featured images displayed within the portfolio. Is it possible instead to display the photos for that specific portfolio entry rather than the featured images of every entry?

Thanks!

Hi chrispau1,

You can display excerpt in portfolio 1 column by simple addition..

Open “template-portfolio-classic-1col.php” file. ( ../wp-content/themes/evision/template-portfolio-classic-1col.php )

Go to line #67 and you will find below code

swm_portfolio_title(); 
the_content();

Replace above code with below code

swm_portfolio_title();
swm_portfolio_excerpt(); 
swm_portfolio_button(); 

This code will display excerpt in 1 column portfolio.

If you want to display only single image in lightbox then open “general-functions.php” file

Path: ../wp-content/themes/evision/framework/general-functions.php

In this file, go to line #776 and you will find below code.

$output = '<a rel="prettyPhoto[gallerycolumn]" title="'.$swm_lightbox_image_description.'" href="'.$swm_featured_image.'">'.$thumb.'</a>';

In this code change rel="prettyPhoto[gallerycolumn]" to rel="prettyPhoto"

Now this will only display single image in lightbox.

In lightbox you can display single image or all portfolio item images of the same page.

Thank you :)

Hi,

Is it possible to have a sidebar on the home page when the homepage slider is present?

Thanks.

Softwebmedia

Hi alpinenut,

You can add sidebar in home page with slider by following steps.

Open template-home.php ( Path: ../wp-content/themes/evision/template-home.php )

In this file, go to line #19 and you will find below code

<?php

/* Display page content */ 
if (have_posts()) :
while (have_posts()) : the_post();
the_content('');
endwhile; 
endif;

Replace above code with below code.


 <div class="two-third">

    <?php

    /* Display page content */ 
    if (have_posts()) :
    while (have_posts()) : the_post();
    the_content('');
    endwhile; 
    endif;
 ?>
 </div>
 <div class="one-third last"> 
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
</div>

 <?php

 
Now use “Home” template from right sidebar page attribute box in page editor. You can create dynamic sidebar for home page and add it.

Thank you :)

I’ve just installed v1.08 but it will not function correctly. When viewing available themes, this particular version does not display its preview image properly. Live preview does not work. If I activate it which seems to work, the actual website looks a mess. Do you have any suggestions please as to what might be the cause of this?

Thanks.

Softwebmedia

Hi alpinenut,

Please reinstall theme, it looks it is not installed properly due to internet speed fluctuation.

Thank you :)

Thanks Softwebmedia,

My Wordpress installation was going a bit haywire I think. Just logged out and back in and the new version was working properly.

Having installed v1.08 to test out the new Twitter widget is it possible to close up the spacing between each Tweet? The gap is quite large at the moment.

Thanks.

Softwebmedia

Hi alpinenut,

You can reduce spacing by reducing top margin and bottom padding from style.css > (24) WIDGET STYLES > (b) Recent Tweets Widget > line #2585

#content #sidebar .tweet .tweet_list li, #content #sidebar 
.query .tweet_list li {
......
margin: 8px 0 0 0;
padding:0 0 9px 30px;
......

Thank you :)

Anybody have trouble with the Google Analytic code ? I guess something is missing. I add like the documentation. ( UA-XXXXXXXX-X) but Google doesn´t reconogize :)

Softwebmedia

Hi mayela,

Please check search engine option is “enabled” from

Admin > Settings > Privacy > Site Visibility > Allow search engines to index this site.

Google analytical code options is working fine, you can check in preview site source code bottom area.

Hi guys, Hey I bought the theme, it’s great! and I did some modifications to it, and so far so good, but There is something wrong with the Blog, when you click on the only post (The Welcome one) it shows an Error 404. I don’t see a text field to write and post comments active, but still, somebody placed a comment and I approved it, but the comment wont show up.

In the Discussion Settings, I have the these options unchecked:

- An administrator must always approve the comment -Comment author must have a previously approved comment

Any idea what is wrong?

Same problem with top menu just dont show cyrillic words.

Softwebmedia

Hi sogomonyan,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

Cufon font doesn’t support cyrillic words so you have to disable cufon font from : Admin > Appearance > Theme Options > Fonts > Disable Cufon Font

Hi There,

My site is up and functioning Flashtag SEO – Bend Oregon SEO but the navigation on the home page is not showing up in the olive color like the other pages… I am clearly not a CSS expert…please help :)

Lorie

Softwebmedia

Hi Lorie,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You have to add “http://www.flashtagseo.com” in “home” tab URL . If you mouse over on “Home” tab then you will find “http://www.flashtagseo.com/home/”. This is not correct URL for home tab and that’s why it doesn’t display olive color tab.

Hi great theme. Thank you.

I have two questions regarding the portfolio.

1. Is it possible to view one item in multiple categories (but not in all) without having to duplicate this item in said categories?

2. Can the “read more” button be hidden on certain categories but not all?

Thank you.

Softwebmedia

Hi MoCassim,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

1. Display portfolio item in diff. categories

Open “template-portfolio-classic-4col.php”

Go to line #40

You will find below code

'operator' => 'NOT IN',

Change above code with below code (remove NOT )

'operator' => 'IN',

This will reverse portfolio option -> category display.

Open portfolio page in page editor and only select categories which you want to display. (Portfolio Page Option box)

You also need to select multiple categories in portfolio post to display in multiple categories. (Portfolio Categories – right sidebar box)

2. Display/Hide read more button

Open “template-portfolio-classic-4col.php”

Go to line #40

You will find below code which displays read more button.

swm_portfolio_button(); 

You can display/hide read more button in page with different ways.

Page id -> http://evision-wp.premiumthemes.in/?page_id=527

In above url page id = 527

Only display read more button in page id 1225 and 527
global $pageid;                                    

if ($pageid == '1225' ||  $pageid == '527') {
    swm_portfolio_button();
}
Don’t display read more button in 1225 and 527
global $pageid;                                    

if ($pageid != '1225' &&  $pageid != '527') {
    swm_portfolio_button();
}
Don’t display read more button in 1225
global $pageid;                                    

if ($pageid != '1225') {
    swm_portfolio_button();
}

template-portfolio-classic-4col.php < You can do same custom changes in portfolio 2 and 3 column as per above steps.

Thank you :)

Is there any way to slow down the rotation on the testimonial widget?

Softwebmedia

Hi x1halo1x,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can change testimonials slide rotation speed from

../wp-content/themes/evision/js/theme-settings.js > Index #06 Sidebar Testimonial Rotator

In this section go to—> play: 5000, and change time as per your requirement.

5000 = 5 seconds pause time
10000 = 10 seconds pause time

Hi Sofwebmedia, Thanks for your previous help with the blog, it works perfectly! I have a question, is it possible to configure a link to MySpace with the header icons? I know I can insert MySpace address using any empty link in the Theme Options and if I replace the icon in the server it works, but I can’t edit the rollover name, any ideas?

Softwebmedia

Hi cardenitas,

You can edit tooltip text from general-functions.php > [8] Social Media

Path : ../wp-admin/themes/evision/framework/general-functions.php

In this file you will find below sample code
<li><a href="<?php echo of_get_option('swm_twitter_url'); ?>" <?php swm_open_new_window() ?> class="icon-twitter tipUp" title="<?php _e('Twitter', 'swmtranslate'); ?>"  ></a></li>

Change tooltip text “Twitter” in title="<?php _e('Twitter', 'swmtranslate'); ?>"

Thank you :)

Hi,

I am not sure if this has been asked before, but how do you go about updating the theme. Do you change delete the old theme and reinstall the new one or do you just overwrite some files. Also, will any of the changes I have made still remain after the upgrade or will I lose them?

Softwebmedia

Hi gr8moe,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You have to delete current theme and then install new theme to use updated theme. If you have done any custom changes then you can install updated version with rename theme folder like “evision2” and then upload it (evision2.zip) . After making live updated theme, apply all custom changes in updated version so this way you have two themes – old and new – in same hosting. (This way you will not lose any custom work.)

On a regular page, right under the menu. Is there anyway to reduce the deadspace on there? I hope you understand where I am talking about.

Thanks.

Softwebmedia

Hi x1halo1x,

You can add custom css style (in theme options > custom css/javascript > ‘Add css’ box) to reduce sidebar bottom space.

#sidebar-right-bottom, #sidebar-right-top { 
padding-bottom:0; 
}

Thank you :)

Unfortunately I’m not talking about the sidebar. I have included a screenshot uploaded to imageshack. I am talking about the space right under the logo and nav. menu.

Hi, I absolutely love this theme.

5 stars so far I’ve encountered no issues except this: Is there any way to shorten/truncate/or add a read more feature to the testimonials footer box. Many of my clients testimonials are very long and cause the footer widget to extend far below the rest. I like the fluid motion of the widget expanding but its abnormal looking once it passes a certain length. Is there any way to constrain it to a max height and link them to the testimonials page?
