Hi Eric,

I just have an issue with the overviews section. I am trying to ultimately display 12 overviews but its only showing 10. Even if I have the show more button clicked it still only shows a total of 10. There is also an issue of the alignment of columns it might have to do with some entries being longer than the other I’m not sure. You can view it here http://198.100.31.212

Hey and thanks for your purchase! Here is how to fix it:

  1. Go to Dashboard > Settings > Reading and set “Blog pages show at most” to 12.
  2. Open js/custom.js file within your theme folder and at line 163 change this:
    hiddenChapters  = $(".chapter-ov:eq(4), .chapter-ov:eq(5), .chapter-ov:eq(6), .chapter-ov:eq(7)");
    

    to this:

    hiddenChapters  = $(".chapter-ov:eq(4), .chapter-ov:eq(5), .chapter-ov:eq(6), .chapter-ov:eq(7), .chapter-ov:eq(8), .chapter-ov:eq(9), .chapter-ov:eq(10), .chapter-ov:eq(11)");
    

And it should work :) Nice site by the way! Erik

How do you sell? is it eCommerce? How does it work?

eriktailor

No, it is a landing page, not a webstore. It’s for advertising and showcasing an ebook product, and has large call to action buttons where the user can be redirected anywhere (for example Amazon.com) where he can actually purchase the ebook. Cheers, Erik

Hi Eric,

Really love your site! Was wondering if you could tell me if the site could work well with multiple books instead of 1 book? I represent an Author who has 20 plus books to his name.

Can the – Sample pages from the book – be from many different books?

With the – Chapter Overviews – Is there a limit? (I noticed another Author saying he could only get 10 to show up & they were not aligned)

And with the – Special offers – Is there a limit to the amount of tables or is that designed for 1 book?

Also the bar with the – product sales – facebook likes – working hours – coffees made – Is that customizable?

Thanks for your time!

eriktailor
Hey, great that you like it :) Here are the answers:
  1. Yeah, every sample is a separate custom post, you can fill it with whatever content you need
  2. No it isn’t limited, what you noticed is a bug from our side – and a working solution has been already passed.
  3. Yeah, by default you can only create 4 pricing tables, but feel free to add more ones manually by code (if you were at that part, just let me know and i’ll help)
  4. Sure, you can set any amount and title what fit your needs.

Hi, (first sorry for my english) I just purchase this theme and i try to install it. I don’t now why but when i check the chekbox slider and i save the changes it doesn’t works. The checkbox uncheck alone. I do something wrong ? Thx

Default-user

I can’t check more than one box too and on your demo you have 3 sliders on the page

eriktailor

Hi and thanks for your purchase. I’m afraid i’m not sure what do you mean by the checkbox slider and the 3 slider in my demo, can you please describe your issue with a bit more details? Cheers, Erik

Default-user

when i chek the box and when i saves changes the chek disappear

Default-user
and when i’m talk about your demo i talk about that http://www.casimages.com/img.php?i=140527061307405381.jpg
eriktailor

I still don’t really understand the problem, but i suggest to read the proper part of the theme documentation and follow the steps mentioned there, i’m pretty sure you will work around this:

Hi Erik, love this theme – I’m using it for a Chinese language site and got stuck on the samples. Instead of breaking the chapter and summary with [...] the full sample displays on the right, where there should just be a preview. You can see what I mean:

http://poqom.com/

I need to get rid of the preview and just write “chapter one, chapter two” etc without the break off (unless I can manually enter where to break).

Thanks, Derek

eriktailor
Hi Derek, thx for your purchase glad you like it. I assume it can’t count the words properly because of the chinese letters so it can’t limit them az expected. I suggest to change them manually by adding this to the bottom of /js/script.js file, just above the closing “End of document” tag:
$(function(){
    // First Title
    $(".selector > ul > li:eq(0) > .entry").text("yourText");

    // Second Title
    $(".selector > ul > li:eq(1) > .entry").text("yourText");

    // Third Title
    $(".selector > ul > li:eq(2) > .entry").text("yourText");

    // Fourth Title
    $(".selector > ul > li:eq(3) > .entry").text("yourText");
});

Of course, change “yourText” for your own chinese preview content needed. Let me know how it worked out. Cheers, Erik

Default-user

Thanks – where’s that file? I can’t find it in the JS folder…

only ‘custom.js’ ... or do I need to save as a new .js file?

eriktailor

Within your theme folder… for example, if you work on a live web server, connect to it via FTP: yoursite.com/wordpress/wp-content/themes/FlatBook/

Default-user

Yeah but, in that folder there’s no “script.js” file.

Default-user

Added it to the ‘custom.js’ file, that worked great. Thanks.

Cool, your welc :)

First off, love the theme and your information to set it up was very well written and helpful. This is my first WordPress blog so I’m a newbie (and feel free to explain things to me that way).

1) On the samples page I would like to use screen shots (since my book has images in it etc) but I do not want the title of the page (say, ‘chapter one’) to display on the sample iPad screen.

2) On the samples page it shows the side of the Facebook ‘like me’ button at the bottom of the ‘blog post’ which peeks out along the side of the sample iPad (which is longer than the sample page ‘blog post’). Is there any way to hide/disable that on just that page?

Thanks!

PS – for those looking for a checkout option I am using Easy Digital Downloads and it works great and is free! https://easydigitaldownloads.com/

I figured out issue #2, but can still use help with #1

eriktailor

Hello and thanks for your purchase, sounds great that it was easy to set up even without any wordpress experience. I assume that the facebook “Like me” button is coming from a plugin you installed as it’s not the part of the theme by default so i will need to check your site to be able to give you the specific code needed to achieve the requested result. When your site is up, please send me the link via email from my profile’s contact form here and i’ll check on it. Happy editing! Erik

Thank you for making this great theme. We installed this theme and started customizing it and ran into some problems.

You can view our website here: http://thecareerpuzzle.com/

We are having the most trouble with the samples. When you scroll down to the ipad it covers up the portion of text that should show under the main title. Then all the chapters on the side are not visible. It seems that it is taking up 2 lines instead of 1 line. We have tried minimizing the titles of the chapters but it hasn’t done anything.

Another problem we have is with the About the Author. We cannot figure out where to customize this.

Finally our drop down menu does not behave correctly. Once we enable a menu we load the page and the menu is just there and the option to drop down the menu disappears.

Thank you for looking at this!

Go to Dashboard > Pages > Sample Pages From The Book

open it for edit and simply hit 2 breaks (enters) to the content field, and save it.
Another problem we have is with the About the Author. We cannot figure out where to customize this.

You can edit it at Dashboard > Pages > About the Author

Finally our drop down menu does not behave correctly. Once we enable a menu we load the page and the menu is just there and the option to drop down the menu disappears.

It’s because the visible navigation style is set in the Theme Options – you can choose from 3 navigation styles. To enable the dropdown one, go to Dashboard > Appearance > Theme Options > General and set the navigation style to hidden.

By the way, almost every anwser for your questions is mentioned in the theme documentation, please read it carefully if you are new to wordpress sitebuilding. Happy editing! Erik

Hi Erik, I just started playing with the theme. Wondering if the slider background image from demo2 is included somewhere? I like the orange, and it would work well with the orange in my book cover. Thanks.

eriktailor

Hey, actually it’s not available with the theme at the moment, but it will be included in the next theme update. Until then, feel free to save it with right click save as, and use it (the background only) if you like so. Cheers, Erik

Default-user

Thanks Erik. That worked. One more question. Before I start customizing the CSS and php files, is there a right way to put make changes so that it’s not all lost when there’s an update? I’m used to the genesis framework and the updates come automatically, just like WP itself. As long as I put my customizations in one place, I have no worries. I figure it’s better to ask now before I create a lot of work for myself down the road.

eriktailor

Great to hear that. The updates are not automatic, so i can guarantee you that it won’t update by it’s own, and eliminate your modifications made in the theme files. Make sure to create a backup file of the contents (Tools > Export) and the theme options (Appearance > Options Backup) either before you decide to update the theme manually, and apply the modifications again from your backup files if you update it. Cheers, Erik

Default-user

Okay. What I’ve learned is that if I want to modify, it might be best to create a child theme. Following the tutorials, I’m running into a problem that says parent “Flatbook” isn’t installed, which of course isn’t true. Anything in these theme that would prevent me from creating a child?

Default-user

Nevermind, I figured it out. I had a case sensitivity problem. Hadn’t noticed I needed a “B” to go with the capital “F”.

eriktailor

Great to hear that you managed to solve it on your own! :) Happy editing! Erik

Default-user

Hi Erik,

No question, but a couple suggestions Erik. Your home page looks and works great, with the exception of the Chapter Overviews. I have a 25 chapter book. I understand you are working on that. The styling for other parts of the site need work. Fundamental elements such as lists for pages, posts, and side bars could be styled, so the whole package looks great turnkey. I’m figuring it out on my own, but it’s not my forte. For example, when I created a new page, the text bangs up against the header. It took a bit, but I figured out that .page-full {margin-top: 40px;} would fix my problem. For someone who doesn’t know any CSS, the pages and posts are going to be pretty rough sailing. My suggestion is that when you do your next update, you spend some time making those other elements as awesome as the landing page. Thanks.

eriktailor

Hey and thanks for the honest feedback, i really appriciate it because this kind of real reviews based on your personal user experiences point out the mistakes what we may haven’t noticed yet and let us know what needs to be improved to make the theme more user friendly. The mentioned things will definately included in the next theme update.

By the way, i think it’s almost impossible to feature an option for every possible variation of customization in the theme settings, that’s why i’m always trying to help our customers to achieve their custom requests with the proper code snippets or scripts. Thanks again for the feedback! Cheers, Erik

My website zelf-deze-site-maken.nl is not working at all anymore!

Can you check what is wrong?

Thank you

Hey Pixnix, it has nothing to do with the theme, it’s coming from your hosting provider… if i had to guess, i would say that your hosting service is expired, i suggest to contact them for further information. Cheers, Erik

Okay, this is making me crazy and I feel really stupid for even having to ask these things, but…

1) I can’t find any instructions or documentation for this theme. I even tried unzipping it to see if there was a document in there, but there was none. Could you please point me in the direction of where to find the instructions?

2. I tried experimenting with creating samples and they just look like regular posts. No iPad display, no nothing.

Please help!

eriktailor

Hey Rena and thanks for your purchase. 1.) Actually it’s right in the downloaded theme package’s (zip) root folder, called ”/Documentation”.

2.) After you found, please go through on it carefully, every possible ways of the customization and a detailed getting started guide with images are included in, i’m pretty sure about you will find what you are looking for. Cheers, Erik

Hey Erik,

is there any way to use the JS scrolling you use on your sample page when someone clicks a link to jump to a local anchor tag? I have added a “More Info” button in my slider section and I want it to scroll down to the next section instead of just jumping there. But somehow the JS doesn’t trigger.

eriktailor
Hey sure, you just need to call the scrolling script for the more info button you created, something like this:
<a href="target-element" class="btn" id="scroll-button">More Info</a>

<script type="text/javascript">
    (function($) { "use strict";
           $("#scroll-button").smoothScroll({ speed: 800, offset: -153 });
    })(jQuery);
</script>

Of yourse, you will need to add the javascript part to the proper template file, not from the wordpress admin’s editor. Cheers, Erik

Hi Erik,

Firstly, thanks for creating a great theme, I love it!

I have a couple of problems though…

1. I have multiple “Contact” section types on my page. When each one is clicked which allows the user to enter their email address, it makes the page scroll to random locations. How do I fix this so that when a user clicks on the button it stays on the same location of the page.

2. I have removed the “Call to action” section, but it is still showing on the site

3. When I hide the menu, to make the menu visible again, you have to click the three lines (menu button). How do I change the colour of this button?

If you need to access my site to address the problems, please let me know where to send the details to.

Thanks!

eriktailor

Hey, thanks great to hear that you like it!

1.) It’s because of the script what drops down the contact form, originally it was designed to have one form. I have a fix in mind but haven’t tested yet, please give it a try – open up /js/custom.js file and replace the content of line 216-220 for this:

    triggerForm.click(function(){
        $(this).fadeOut(500);
        $(this).closest("div.contact-form").slideDown(300);        
    });

2.) I’m not sure what’s wrong as i haven’t seen your site, but feel free to delete or comment out the code of the call to action section from template-samples.php file at line 80-96.

3.) You can do it via css manually – add this to the very bottom of your style.css file:

.menu-btn i {color: #FF0000 !important;}

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

Default-user

Thanks for your quick response.

For 1. – where do I open the /js/custom.js file?

Sorry, I’m a coding rookie!

Default-user

Ok, I have found the file. But I cannot open it. Which program would you recommend to open the file? Is it possible that you could edit the file and send me it?

eriktailor

I’m using Notepad++ it’s free, i recommend that. Try it, i’m sure you will figure it out :) If you still stuck with it, let me know and drop me and email and i’ll send you over the file. Cheers, Erik

Hi!

Two issues: First of all the slider doesn’t seem to be showing up at all. I’ve done everything that the documentation says but it’s showing up behind the h1 tag no matter what I do (you can see it on the home page right now). Secondly, anything in the navigation bar isn’t working. It’s posting a # before the page name which invalidates the URL.

eriktailor

Hi and thanks for your purchase. The slider issue sounds strange, can you please drop me an email including this issue with a link to your site – so i’ll be able to check it?

Regarding the navigation, actually the # sign refers to a menu item what doesn’t redirects you to another page – just scroll to the targeted home section. For example, if you have a home page section called “Our Team”, the correct menu link url will be “http://yoursite.com#our-team” and so on.. Cheers, Erik

Hi Erik,

Before I’m going to buy the template i wanted to know: Does the template support RTL direction language such as Hebrew? can i modify it to be RTL instead of LTR direction. and also can i translate all the English to Hebrew?

Hi Erik,

I noticed that on small screen (phone), the page header is partially covered by the main header. Not sure if that’s something I created by messing around with CSS or not. You can see it at http://themeetinghero.com/blog-2/. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hey and thx for your purchase. Add this to your style.css file to fix it:

Hi Erik,

I upgraded your theme. I appreciate the extra customizations and tweaks that you provided. The updated documentation is great. Thanks for adding some of the tips others have requested.

When I upgraded, my menu links broke. (You had fixed them for me previously.) Can you take a look at them?

I will end up hiding the menu. How can I add the word “Menu” next to the menu button when the menu is hidden?

I’ve sent login credentials through your contact page.

thanks for your excellent work!
