Hi,

First of all, thanks so much for your prompt help.

My question is, when I click the arrows on the sliders, the sliding in feature doesn’t work and instead the elements that are supposed to slide just fade in.

Thanks a lot

Hey there, your welcome! Amm, i just checked the slider of your site right now and it seems ok for me: the two lined title and the image is sliding, the text content is fading. It’s the original functionality of the theme, just like in my theme demo: http://demo.eriktailor.com/flatbook-wordpress/

Hi. Thanks for answering to all questions last time. Got stuck on some more.

JJwarren.com

1) How do I erase some space below Samples from the book. 2) Right behind the ipad looking display is a small image. How do I delete that? 3) I have many chapters excerpts. How can I display all without overlapping “Get your copy now!” “purchase” display that follows?

Thank you

eriktailor

Hey, your welcome! :)

1-2.) You are installed some third party social media plugin, that’s what you see behind the ipad and i assume that causes the large spacing between the title and the ipad mockup: http://postimg.org/image/55oz0ifrr/

3.) Unfortunately FlatBook only allows 4-5 chapter selectors to stay the design clean and sleek, i suggest to keep only the most catchy ones and remove the rest so it will align nicely.

Happy editing! Erik

Hi Eric! I bought the Flatbook theme last week. I love the look and operation of the theme, and I am enjoying working with it! I’ve spent the last day tweaking it and am very satisfied with the adjustments that I’ve made. I’ve been mostly reducing the size of the header and menu bar, and that has gone pretty well.

Question 1): Now, after the changes I’ve made, on the home page, when I scroll down to another section, they are positioning lower than my fixed menu by about 34-35px. I would like to “scootch them up by that amount and cannot figure out where to make that code adjustment. I have made all the sizing adjustments directly to the “layout.css” file and assume that there is a parameter in there I should be able to change to accomplish this positioning adjustment. How can I position the scrolled sections higher up by 34px?

Question 2): On the Blog page, how can I increase the number of post lines displayed (currently 3 lines) to either a higher number or unlimited? I want my reader to see more of each post than the theme currently shows.

BTW, I think you’ve done a great job of documentation for the theme. I realize these questions are beyond the scope of that documentation.

Thanks, in advance, for your help.

Hello! Thanks for your purchase and your positive feedback, i much appriciate sharing it with us! ;)

1.) Open up your header.php file and on line 53 play around with the offset: -153 attribute until scrolling fits your adjusted size header.

2.) Open up your functions.php file, and around line 71, edit this:
        
if ($post->post_type == 'post')
    return 40;
the number “40” refers to the amount of words shown in the blog post excerpts, for example if you change it to “120”, the excerps will show 120 words before the read more button.

Let me know how these worked out! Happy editing! Erik

Hi Erik! Thank you so much. The first change works perfectly. In the second issue, changing the blog word count does increase the words displayed, but it loses the paragraph break. Is there a way to not lose the paragraph break?

I suggest that you might consider making the second issue a variable in your General Theme Options settings. With higher bandwidth available today, many people might choose more words to be displayed.

Thanks again for developing such a fine WP theme!

eriktailor

What do you mean exactly by “paragraph break”? Maybe the justified text alignment of the excerpt contents?

Yeah, actually there are many things what could be improved in my mind – like the one you mentioned – but nowdays i’m extremely busy with my client projects and unfortunately don’t have enough time to accomplish my plans of improvements :(

Your welcome, glad you like it! ;) Also, don’t forget to rate the theme if you have some time, i’d much appriciate it! Cheers, Erik

Would this theme link up well with woo commerce?

eriktailor

Hello, actually it doesn’t optimized for woocommerce yet, but if you have experience with css, you can style it to fit your needs. Cheers, Erik

Hi Erik,

All of us customers sure appreciate your responsive helpfulness. I have a few more questions as I try to get my new site up and running.

1) My menu link to Contact is not working – when choosing it, the page jumps to the home position. I have checked to make sure I have a page set up for “Contact” and it is using the “Contact” template. I then checked the Menu structure and it does use the Contact page in the Flatbook Top Primary Menu. Everything seems to be consistent with all the other menu items which are working fine. Any ideas?

2) My home page animation seems to have stopped. Is there something that controls this?

Thanks!

Erik,

1) I have already tried that and the result is still no action.

2) I use Chrome F12 for exploring the elements of a page, but beyond that I am unknowledgeable. I just tried checking the Console tab and nothing happens…the screen doesn’t change. I’m also not a programmer with knowledge of JavaScript.

Sorry…any other way to approach these two issues? I’ve spent hours trying to figure them out.

Thanks~Tip

1) is resolved. I had changed the contact slug to “contact” rather than “contact-us”, so that is what I was using in the menu. When I changed the menu item back to “contact-us”, it worked. Not sure why, but it does.

2) still is an issue.

eriktailor

1.) Because the contact bar has the id attribute of “contact-us” by default, so the link will only work if the slug and the id is the same.

2.) Try to think back when the issue started and what you were editing than. If you can’t recall send me over your site link and i check it. Cheers, Erik

Hi there,

1.How can I add Instagram to Social Media in footer? I don’t see one for Instragram.

Default-user

2. I only want 1 video. How do I make it centered and bigger? 3. Where do I edit the “Get your copy now” section under the sample?

eriktailor

Hey and thanks for your purchase.

1.) Open up your footer.php file and change one of the social icon elements listed to Instagram. 2.) You can change the two columns layout of the video section in the template-videos.php file, just change the class="eight columns" to class="sixteen columns" and delete the second one. 3.) Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Theme Options > Call to Action and change there.

Happy editing! Erik

Error importing demo content

Hi Erik, trying to set up version 1.3.0

ISSUE 1

When importing the demo contents according to your ..\Documentation\index.html in step ‘3) Check the Download and import file attachments checkbox and hit Submit’ I get: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /srv/purple/www/www.garderobemanagement.nl/wp-content/themes/FlatBook/functions.php on line 204 Looking at file functions.php, this is one line below the function register_js().

This is WP 3.9.2 (internationalized Dutch version) and I must note that the WPImporter plugin page that I had to import earlier in the process said something like “Not known to be supported with your version”.

I initially did not “create a new owner/or assign post to existing user” in the import step, but when I tried again with assigning to the current WP login that made no difference.

Checked out all 10 pages of comments but this issue seems to be new ;-)

ISSUE 2

Now, in step 4) Appearance/Menus/Flatbook menu all the items on the right (Pricing/Home/.../Samples) appear double. Maybe because I imported twice (the 2nd import attempt told me umpteen times “Already exists”, so I assume this was properly handled).

minor ISSUE 3

There is something a bit off in the documentation. In step 4) Appearance/Menus/Flatbook menu and click Select, your screenshot says that it’s named ‘Flatbook menu (Top primary menu)’ but at that stage it is still called ‘Flatbook menu’ (that is the only one available in the dropdown). Only after checking the box and saving does it get renamed to ‘Flatbook menu (Top primary menu)’. That was a bit confusing, you may want to fix that.

So, with ISSUE 2 probably being related to ISSUE 1, I have stopped at this stage. What steps should I take from here?

Thanks in advance Jan Doggen (on my wife’s account RietdeVlieger)

Hello Jan and thanks for your purchase.

1.) Sounds strange i have never seen this issue before – however you need to check the checkbox when asked to assign the posts of the demo content – but i don’t think it has anything to do with the error message, if you haven’t made any modifications in the functions.php file, i assume it will be some conflict with the recently released 3.9.2 version of wordpress. If you send me your wordpress login details via email, i can take a look on it and do the import for you.

2.) Yeah it’s because you imported the demo content twice. When you need to import again, it’s recommended to reset the existing database to be empty or simply delete the duplicated entries manually after the successful import.

3.) Don’t worry, if you set it to be the “Top Primary Menu” with the checkbox below the menu items and save it, it will be shown like that :)

Cheers, Erik
