will this theme be supported in the future? because I can’t find it in the popular items anymore.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Yes it will. It was only because of the issue we had last week, and it not being back on ThemeForest until Sunday evening – which was why it didn’t appear in the list. It will be back there next week when the list updates.

Is it possible to enable swift composer for custom post types? I created one, but don’t see composer button. Thanks guys.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Have you purchased the theme or used another account? You don’t have the purchased badge?

- Ed

Client bought it. I just remembered I registered for your support forum with purchase code under V1ktor.

SwiftIdeas

Ahh ok, no worries.

Sure, just edit /includes/page-builder/composer/lib/composer.php line 55:

$this->postTypes = $pt_array ? $pt_array : array('page', 'post', 'portfolio');

Where do I enable page options metabox for custom post types?

Default-user

FYI. I just noticed that there’s a conflict between your swift composer and Advance Custom Fields plugin. When plugin is enabled, composer will not load preview of the elements. Content is there, but you can’t actually see it in composer.

SwiftIdeas

That’s correct, ACF isn’t currently compatible. It’s on our list to look into.

You can enable the metabox for custom posts types in /includes/meta-boxes.php

Hi Ed,

I’m loving the theme already!

I have a few questions I hope you don’t mind:

1. Box items colour seems to be stuck on red. I created a number of boxes with different custom background colour but they all appear as red. So I don’t know how I can get custom box colours to display. Is there a global setting I need to change somewhere?

2. Once I’ve saved a page builder layout and applied it to multiple pages, how would I then go back and edit this template? It would be good to know I could update the template once and it be applied across all the relevant pages.

3. How would I go about using normal pages and then linking them as portfolio pages to the thumbnails in portfolio page? Is this the only way to get fully custom layouts for portfolio pages?

4. How do I reduce the blank space within full width items (between the top & bottom edge of the box and the content)

5. I want to use widgets such as a sidebar custom menu on full width items. How would I use a full width page template and be able to insert widgets such as custom menus?

6. Within the portfolio how would I take out the ‘filter our work’ heading and just show the filtering categories as the default view?

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Glad you like it!

1) Have you set the colour in the asset itself? If so, make sure you include the # e.g.

#887f76

2) Unfortunately that’s not possible, as all pages are different. You wouldn’t want multiple pages with the same content would you?

3) You can use the page builder within portfolio items, so that would be the best way to do that. Else you could set the link to a provided URL, which would be the page you’ve created.

4) You can use the following css, add it to Flexform Options > General Options > Custom CSS:

.full-width-text {
padding-top: 25px;
padding-bottom: 25px;
}

5) You could try using this – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-shortcode/

6) Use this css:

.filter-wrap .filter-slide-wrap {
display: block!important;
}
.filter-wrap .select {
display: none;
}

Hope that helps.

Hi Ed, to clarify my question from 2. – I’m seeking to save a page builder template and apply it to 20 pages. Then if I need to make a change to the template elements (for eg. adding or deleting an element) that would be applied to all the pages using that template. I believe this is presently not possible as we can’t edit templates once they are created. This would be a great feature though and would save a lot of time when making structural changes across a lot of pages.

I can’t find how to add normal pages to the Top Bar – is there a place in widgets to add these as a menu?

Thanks

SwiftIdeas

That wouldn’t really be possible, as the template saves the elements and the content within, so even if you edited the template, it wouldn’t be able to update the pages that are using that template. Updating pages that way you be risky.

In Appearance > Menus, you can add items to another menu and set the top bar menu.

Hi Ed,

I have a portfolio carousel on one of my pages, but below each of the little thumbnail images, there’s only room for just two or three words of the title. So you can’t really see what each portfolio item is about. is it possible to have more text, or the entire title shown?

Thanks

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

The problem with this in then the items would more likely be different heights. The carousel is meant to give a little insight, with which to progress to see more.

- Ed

Default-user

Okay, i guess i can just leave it then.

Another quick question: I have a search bar in my sidebar. But because my sidebar doesn’t have a colored background and the search bar is also white, it’s kind of hidden. Is there a way to put a border around the search form?

Thanks!

Default-user

Also, what css would i need if I wanted to change JUST the nav bar text font?

SwiftIdeas

The background for search will be the alt background colour, so make sure you have this set in the colour customiser.

You’d need to add the code for an extra font if you wanted to change that too. We’re thinking about adding an option for it in the next update.

- Ed

Default-user

ok thanks, I think a lot of people would appreciate the flexibility of that in the next update. I certainly would! Thanks so much for the help, and great job on the theme.

Hey Ed,

need your help here.

1. Can you please add all the missing post formats into the theme to really future proof it. Since WordPress 3.6 is really getting into that directions and I think it would make blogging even better with this theme when we could use the other post formats as well?

2. Can you help me out here. I need to make the headlines of the 4 column text blocks of the home page five example a link. How would I do it since you said adding just another field for the text blocks called URL would be too much of a hassle. I need the fontawesome icons next to the clickable headline.

Thanks for your help Ed. I appreciate it.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

1) We’re working on adding this to our framework, and nearly have it finished. We should have it included in the next version. Is there anything in particular you feel like we’re missing?

2) Your best bet would be to not use the asset titles, and instead create the headings within the text blocks. That way you could add the icon html within the heading/link, and have better control.

Hope that helps.

- Ed

Default-user

Thanks Ed.

1) no nothing special, just that it supports all post formats and let’s me choose what post format I want to assign to each post and then output the post with the specific or special design in the blog. Link is just the Link, Gallery looks like a gallery (maybe with a slider), single image post is just the image and so on. I guess you know what I mean.

2) Can you elaborate that a little. How would I recreate the exact same styling without using the asset titles? Maybe you can copy and paste a piece of example code here that would help to understand. Thanks.

3) Why did you not make the URL rewrite not part of the 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3 updates? Did it cause any trouble on your end?

4) When can we expect the new update to be released approximately?

Thanks as always Ed.

SwiftIdeas

1) Yes, understood. We’ve got this in the next update.

2) Keep the asset title blank, then you could add a heading text into the text content like so:

<h4>This is a title</h4>
<p>This is normal text</p>

3) If users don’t have permalinks set, then it won’t work, so it’s best for users to do this themselves.

4) Hoping to send it off in the next 24 hours.

- Ed

Default-user

Just one more question about 2) Ok I see that but I don’t see how the styling would be exactly the same now with icon left of the headline.

I mean how would we replicate the exact same look like if we use the assets title and the icon field without using these two fields.

Hopefully you understand what I mean. If not I try to further clarify.

SwiftIdeas

Create a text block, select the Text tab of the editor, then paste in this code:

<div class="heading-wrap">
<i class="icon-cloud" />
<h3 class="wpb_heading">cloud</h3>
</div>

Hope that helps.

- Ed

Default-user

I tried your code and it gives me that: http://cl.ly/image/032u3T3Z1O3q

It seems to add an additional p tag in the source code.

SwiftIdeas

Hmm.. Try this instead:

<div class="heading-wrap">
<i class="icon-cloud" /><h3 class="wpb_heading">cloud</h3>
</div>

- Ed

Default-user

Thanks Ed Will try that and let you know. Any idea when you have time to answer my email?

And I noticed something else.

If you setup a new portfolio item and assign a feature image and leave the portfolio thumbnail type under Thumbnail Options to none it uses the featured image as portfolio thumbnail. Little bit confusing but I guess that is how it’s supposed to be.

But when you change the Thumbnail Options to Image and select another image and save, it uses that image as thumbnail. This seems logical, at least to me it does ;)

But when you now delete the image that you set under Thumbnail Options by clicking on the little x in the top right corner of the thumbnail and change the portfolio thumbnail type back to none and save, it keeps showing the image that you had under Thumbnail Options 30 seconds ago.

I tried to save a couple of times and I have no browser cache enabled. Any idea why this happens?

SwiftIdeas

I’ve replied :)

Thanks for pointing that out – I’ve changed that for the next update.

When you delete the image, do you still have the featured image set?

- Ed

Default-user

Yes the feature image is still there. So no changes there. It seems like just the thumbnail acts weird. As if the thumbnail option would not be overwritten once the thumbnail is deleted and the option set back to none and saved.

Have received your email and answered.

Default-user

Just that you know Ed. I fixed the problem with the related posts bug. Seems like once I changed the text within the template and saved the template everything regarding the related posts is fine now.

So the only thing left for now is just the blog with right sidebar bug with the author info not showing and the the date in a weird place.

Just wanted to let you know. So you don’t have to waste time on a problem that seems to be solved now.

Thanks. Have a great evening.

SwiftIdeas

Should have a hot fix update out in the next few days to fix that blog issue.

Glad you sorted the related articles issue, may have been a problem with the translation string.

Thanks Ed. Yeah the blog thing would be cool if you could fix that as soon as possible. I need to go online next wednesday. Do you think you can fix the blog view until then?

Default-user

Hi Ed,

3) updated to v1.4, the result of the sidebar menu is same as v1.1 to 1.3 http://i.imgur.com/ssAIrpm.jpg have any solution else? or wait for the next update?

SwiftIdeas

How did you update the theme? It’s definitely in the update, and should look like this – http://cl.ly/Ovrl

- Ed

Default-user

Hi Ed,

updated. but i expected the update of menu is likely v1.0.2 after onmouseover result: http://i.imgur.com/T8bbiS1.jpg

can be merge to read the parent of each branch when page start, and onmouseover a parent can read her children, then can click the sub-branch. (the menu movement likely the main menu)

anyway, thanks to update on UI having better visual to read branches in menu.

and hope having a version to be able merge as my expected menu.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

So you’re saying you’d want the menu to open in layers on click?

- Ed

Default-user

Hi Ed,

yes, it is better able to open in layers on click, likely the main menu.

SwiftIdeas

We’ll add this to the list for possibilities in a future update.

Default-user

Hi Ed,

further question on sidebar menu…

how to change “font color and weight” of menu parent only . i.e. layer1, layer2, layer3 in the picture http://i.imgur.com/ssAIrpm.jpg

Thanks your great helping.

SwiftIdeas

You could use the following custom css:

.widget_nav_menu ul.menu > li > a {
 color: #ff9900;
 font-weight: bold;
}

Google Maps Fix

Hello. By clicking on the marker, the map opens in the same page. And this is not good for usability reasons. The right thing would be that there will map in a new page. I solved it as follows:

flexform\js\functions.js
line 855
change....
window.location.href = 'http://maps.google.com/maps?q='+mapAddress;
by...
window.open('http://maps.google.com/maps?q='+mapAddress);

(please update it in future versions) Best regards, Linksbreaker

Hi Ed!

This is probably a really simple question but it’s driving me crazy! I can’t seem to make 1/3-sized content blocks! I can make 2/3—and so would like to put a 1/3 column next to it but the editor jumps from 1/2 to 1/4 in size. Any tips?

Just checked to confirm and you can definitely make them 1/3. Try adding a new one? http://cl.ly/OuVO

Hi I have some problems with the Revolution Slider. After the first installation and some test I received an error: ‘View (sliders) Error: Field Image should not be empty’ when I was changing an image on a slideset. The behaviour of the plugin is not regular anymore (not possible to delete slidesets/other). Can you please help me with some basic instructions?

No sorry is not possible,the plugin is not working anymore. I do not see the plugin working in other pages and is not possible to modify the remaing slidesets. I’ve found something that can solve the problem on the plugin page: Version 2.3.91 Release Date 09.04.2013

Bug Fix: Field image not found message removed Bug Fix: more then one Slider on the same page influence the Caption Behaviour. Issue is fixed in this release. Bug Fix: Safari on pc Slider with links creates huge Memory Leaks. Issue is solved.

Probably you need to include the new version of the plugin…

Any other option -disinstal-reinstal?

The SwiftPage builder is not working for me. Every time I try to switch to it, it says that there is nothing there. To see it, I have to go back to the classic editor, switch to text view, go back to visual, then click on the swiftpage builder button. Only then will anything show up. When I add things, it is hit or miss as to if it will even actually save. This started with the most recent version of the theme. I personally prefer to just use the text editor, but there is no way to access the shortcodes from the text editor. Would be great if there were. Either way, it makes it incredibly difficult to use. Nothing else has changed or been added as far as the theme files, plugins or scripts.

SwiftIdeas

Hi Kahil,

Sorry to hear you’re having issues. If you’re using the classic editor, then switch to the page builder, then you’re likely to see issues. The way the page builder works is it checks the content and builds the page builder blocks from the shortcodes that are there. This will only work with the page builder shortcodes, so if you’ve just got text in there it will be lost.

We haven’t actually changed anything to do with the page builder in the latest update, so not sure if it’s a different process you’re doing to see this issue?

First of all hats off to this theme…I love it very much. I have 3 questions.

1) How to change the height and width of the Impact Text + Button ??

2) How to reduce the height of Full Width Media Display area present in each post??

3) I guess this is a bug…I am not able to put sidebar on Archives/Categories page. Even after selecting the Right Sidebar—->Sidebar One…..I get a blank space in the part of sidebar…no sidebar is displayed :(

SwiftIdeas

Glad you like it, thanks for the kind words.

1) It’s only available in the full width mode, and the height is based on the content – so you can add spacing before and after the text?

2) The height is based on the height of the image/video, so not sure what you’d want to do?

3) We’ve fixed this in the latest update, which we’re releasing within the next 24 hours.

Nice! It works. Just out of curiosity, why did it not work when I put the same CSS class on style.css?

SwiftIdeas

Because the colour is set in the dynamic css. You should always add CSS to the custom css box, as this is kept when you update the theme.

Hey Ed, There’s a heck of a lot of CSS code in the header is there anyway to clean this up?

Perhaps get the theme to write it to custom CSS rather than the header?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Although it’s not the prettiest, it’s actually the fastest and best method to add in custom css. Writing to an external file often causes issues, and is slower to load.
