hi how can I change the thumbnail size?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

What are you looking to change? The width is set based on the grid framework and the number of columns.

I would like to change the height. it should look like rectangular, not like a square.

SwiftIdeas

Edit /includes/page-builder/composer/lib/shortcodes/portfolio.php and you can find the default size line 98-100:

$thumb_width = 420;
$thumb_height = 315;
$video_height = 315;

Hi Ed, is there a simple way for us to add some padding/space at the very top and bottom of the pages – basically we would like to see some of the background above and below the pages so that the whole page is framed by background.

Like this: http://wp-demo.indonez.com/Alpha/

Many thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Sure, you can add the following to Flexform Options > General Options > Custom CSS. The 50px is the top and bottom spacing.

.boxed-layout {
margin: 50px auto;
}

Fantastic, thank you!

Is there a way to disable this for mobile devices?

SwiftIdeas

Add this below the above:

@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
.boxed-layout {
margin: 0 auto;
}
}

Sorry another question. The “Top Bar Divider Color” currently changes the dividers in the top menu bar and also the lines above and below the main menu. Is it possible to change the them independently. I particularly would like independent control over the line below the main menu.

FInally for tonight ;) is it possible on the portfolio pages to rename the “Filter Our Work” text to “Filter”? This would make the portfolios much more multi-use.

Thanks again for an amazing theme and great support.

You can change this by editing /includes/page-builder/composer/lib/shortcodes/portfolio.php line 42.

Hi Ed,

Another help please. I have used the Swift Page Builder and added ‘Text Block (Full Width)’ element to a page. But it is leaving a large bottom margin (space) below the element. In another words, if I have two paragraph of text ‘Text Block (Full Width)’ and another element, there is a space I cannot remove. Please see this link for example: http://i.imgur.com/VoaxWAC.jpg (I have highlighted the space with red box).

As you can see in this screen shot, I do NOT have ‘Blank Spacer’ element in between the two. http://i.imgur.com/LNjOaP4.jpg

I do not believe this bit is relevant but I also have ‘Remove top spacing’ and ‘Remove bottom spacing’ ticked in ‘Edit Page’ screen > Misc. Options.

Can you please tell me how I can reduce the gap/space at the end of the ‘Text Block (Full Width)’ element?

Thank you!

Paul

SwiftIdeas

Hi Paul,

We’ve included a number of css classes which you can add to the extra class box within elements to edit the styling of the asset. You can see them here: http://themes.swiftpsd.com/documentation/flexform/assets/images/custom-classes.png

So for your case, you’d want to use:

mb0

- Ed

Default-user

Hi Ed, would you have a text version of that ‘custom-classes’ somewhere, instead of png format. I placed the code in WP Dashboard > General Options > Custom CSS and it did not do anything (I assume that is what I’m meant to do with them?). I just want to make sure I didn’t do a typo but I could not spot it so I will try again by copying ‘n’ pasting.

Thanks!

Paul

SwiftIdeas

Hi Paul,

Sorry if I didn’t explain it well enough. Those are already in the theme css file. You can add them to the “Extra Class” box when you edit elements. So if you didn’t want the bottom margin on an element, you would add:

mb0

to the extra class box.

- Ed

Default-user

Thanks for your explanation. It did NOT work, I am afraid. As you can see in the screen shot, I have added your ‘Extra Code’ mb0 to ‘Text Block (Full Width)’ but the space below the text did NOT reduce.

http://i.imgur.com/j0HxONi.jpg
SwiftIdeas

Do you have a link to the page? Try adding:

pb0

As well.

- Ed

Default-user

That did the trick Ed! Thank you! ...really loving your ‘Extra Code’ idea. I didn’t find a section on that in your ‘Documentation’ folder inside the downloaded content. I would love to see some more info on it when you get a chance.

You can find it at the bottom of the following section: http://themes.swiftpsd.com/documentation/flexform/#swift-page-builder

How do I change the size of the team photos in the Team Carousel? I have uploaded 150×150 pics as featured items within the Team Carousel swift page builder but they are resizing to be a lot larger. Please see here – http://lifestyleelements.com.au/landing-page-1/

Any suggestions? Thanks :)

You don’t appear to be using the team carousel on that page?

Following on from my previous comment – I have gone with a different way of achieving what I want from the team section. However, what is infuriating me is that I am working on a page in SwiftBuilder and every time I go to save a section, that or different sections suddenly get additional line spage –   – in them. I am not a coder so I may be doing something wrong, but all I am doing is editing, putting spaces where I want them, and saving, and then everything changes! Every time I make an adjustment I have to go back into the different sections to change them and it just never seems to end.

Any ideas?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

This is usually down to WordPress adding extra spacing. The best way to do what you’re looking to do is to use 1 text block (1/1 size) then within use the following:

[one_half]
team member 1 here
[/one_half]
[one_half_last]
team member 2 here
[/one_half_last]

Thanks! This will be a good help. It is happening with other sections as well so I am just editing the html as I go via the classic editor. Frustrating to have to keep changing but I’m managing :) Would be nice if wordpress didn’t have to have input!

SwiftIdeas

We don’t usually have that many issues. Do you have any plugins enabled that could be doing this?

Hi Ed,

I’m trying to change the page title backgrounds and have set the Alts, but when I try and select them within the pages it just keeps going back to none and won’t save with any of the Alts – any ideas?

Thanks,

Hi Helen,

Is this on a page that was created before Flexform was activated?

- Ed

Default-user

Ah yes I think they all came over from the old theme, should I create a new page?

Thanks,

P.S. If I need to create new pages is there a way of copying over my swift page builder pages? If I save them as a custom template each then reinstate them in a new page will that work?

Hi SwiftIdeas,

Amazing theme. One of the very best I’ve used.

I am creating a discography page for a band and I need to get the size of the images on the portfolio to display in an equal width and height (for example 300×300). Currently the portfolio squashes the album covers into a rectangular shape.

Is there a way to change these dimensions solely for this one page?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Cheers,

Rob

Pre-sale query: I wish to purchase the theme and install bbpress. Do you have an example page of Flexform running the latest version of bbpress? Thank you.

Hi Doug,

We don’t have an example page as we don’t have styling included for it. I’ve heard that the latest version is compatible with every theme now though, and we have a number of people who do use it.

Thanks for quick reply, Ed.

I am curious as to how the responsivity interacts with bbpress before purchase.

I am trying to create multiple portfolios and have done this in the “new portfolio” place. When I put pictures in these new portfolios though the only way I see to put them in is by “add media” and then they don’t appear nicely formatted as they would if they are a portfolio. If I insert using the “Swift Page Builder” and “portfolio” there is no way to add more images and it goes back to showing a portfolio of all my portfolios not the actual pictures that I want in this specific one. Please help… Robyn

SwiftIdeas

Hi Robyn,

When you’re adding the item, scroll down to the item meta options. Here is where you can set the thumbnail and the detail media.

Hi Ed, I did make thumbnails, however detail media options only lets me choose one image. I want when they go to this portfolio to be able to see all of the pictures in this portfolio laid out nicely opposed to showing a display of all of separate portfolios that I have made.

SwiftIdeas

I’m confused with what you’re trying to do. Are you referring to the page where you show the thumbnail of all your items, or the page where the individual item is shown?

- Ed

Robyn8410 Purchased

I want to be able to click on the portfolio that I created, say portfolio A which is already part of the greater Portfolio. When I click Portfolio A I would like it to show the pictures in this specific portfolio, thumbnails of all of them in a nice layout. I do not want them to be inserted as media as they look bad when I do this. Does this make more sense?

If you go to the link (website in progress) you can see the portfolio. I want for when you click “Arizona” for the pictures to be displayed like a portfolio as I created this under “new portfolio”

Thanks a lot! That was exactly what I needed. I have now created galleries, only problem is that within the galleries I can’t seem to make the pictures bigger than thumbnails. The code I used for the gallery is: [gallery link=”file” size=”medium” ids=”97,96,95,94,92,91,90”] and I made sure that medium within the word press media settings is set to be bigger than thumbnails but I don’t see any difference. Am I doing something wrong? ex page http://willsoniatravel.com/?portfolio=belize Thanks for all of your help :)

Hi Ed,

1. In Flexform Theme Options>Header Options, we have option to change “Main Nav Top Spacing” to add space for a larger logo. This works great until the logo jumps above the nav for the mobile views. When viewing in mobile obviously this extra space is redundant and quite ugly. I need a space of 50 here for the wide views, how do I disable this for mobile view?

2. The “Categories – Tags – Search – Archives – RSS” filtering options on blogs with no sidebars are not centred in mobile view and quite ugly. Do you have a fix for this please?

Many thanks in advance.

SwiftIdeas

1) Add the following to the custom css box in Flexform Options:

@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
#logo img, #logo img.retina {
padding: 0;
}
}

2) We’ll look into this for v1.3

As a follow up is it possible to disable the top bar menu on mobile only? I find it valuable for other devices but doesn’t justify it’s space on mobile in our situation.

Hi, First off… amazing theme! I love all of the features you have added! I am very interested in buying, but I would just like to know one thing. On the top bar menu where you have the language switcher menu item it says the name of the current language. Is it possible to just have that menu item say Languages and then when you scroll over it the languages available will show? Thanks :)

SwiftIdeas

Thanks!

The current language is set via jQuery, but if you like I can give you instructions to comment out the line that does this so it remains as “Languages”.

Hope that helps :)

- Ed

jazeppi

Hey Ed, That would be great! I was also wondering if it would be possible to not have this menu change shape when on mobile as I will only use the top menu for the language switcher and that is already a drop down. Essentially I don’t want a drop down menu within a drop down menu. Did that make sense? haha.

Thanks :)

jazeppi

SwiftIdeas

Hi Jazeppi,

That could be done with some custom css. The dropdown does load with the languages shown so that you don’t have to dropdown twice though.

Hi,This theme is awesome! Is this theme compatible with wordpress multisite?

SwiftIdeas

Thanks, glad you like it. Yes it is :)

Default-user

Great! :) Umm I found something unusual while browsing with iphone and note 2. The responsive is good but it has a very “sticky” feel when you scroll with your fingers. Can I have some feedback on this?

SwiftIdeas

Not seeing that here, but it may occur if you have lots of content on the page. The demo has more content on a page than you would usually have.

This wouldn’t be an issue with the theme, but more a limitation with mobile devices.

Hi there Ed,

Another help please…

How do I change the 2nd Level Menu font size please. See attached image: http://i.imgur.com/I9gKKcQ.jpg

I managed to increase the font size of top level menu but 2nd level is the one I am having issues with. If you can tell me where exactly I go to make the change, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul,

You can add/edit the following in Flexform Options > General Options > Custom CSS:

nav .menu ul li {
font-size: 11px;
}

- Ed

Default-user

Thank you very much. That did the trick!

Default-user

...actually. Now that the font is the same size, I realised that it does NOT appear same as the top-level menu. Initially I thought it was a different font face but that does not appear to be the case. The font is ‘heavier’ font but not as heavy as ‘bold’ Helvetica. Can you think of any reason why they may appear slightly different?

SwiftIdeas

Not seeing that here, as they use the same font. Can you provide a link?
