Hi Swift Ideas,

I just love the template, But it seems like it is not compatible with IE7. Is it possible to do this also ? If yes, it will be great.

Kindly revert.

— Thanks Alex

SwiftIdeas

Hi Alex,

What do you see that’s not working in IE7? It doesn’t support CSS3 so everything won’t be the same, but close.

Hi,

your theme is very good. :) One litte problem I have. I set up “custom links” menu items in a sub menu and all is fine, also with the css class “current-menu-item” for the selected sub menu item, but the “nav-pointer” did not beeing under the selected main menu item.

Menu structure:
portfolio (no nav-pointer)
  portfolio one (selected, with “current-menu-item”)
  portfolio two

I found in functions.js the “NAV ARROW INDICATOR FUNCTION”. So what ca I do here to solve the problem. I think, in this line

var currentMenuItem = mainNav.find('>div>ul>.current-menu-item, >div>ul>.current_page_item') ; )

must something like

var currentMenuItem = mainNav.find('>div>ul>.current-menu-item, >div>ul>.current_page_item, >div>ul>li>ul>li>.current-menu-item') ; )

But this is not working … Please help.

Hi Sebastian,

Does your portfolio parent menu item have any classes that could be targeted?

Hi Ed,

current-menu-ancestor
current-menu-parent

Thanxs for help.

Can you provide a link to the page on your site so that I can check what’s going on?

Hi Ed,

sorry, the website is not yet online. I look for something like this:
if (jQuery('li#menu-item-8178, li#menu-item-8180, li#menu-item-8181, li#menu-item-8182').hasClass('current-menu-item')) {
                var currentMenuItem    = mainNav.find('>div>ul>.current-menu-parent');
            } else {
                var currentMenuItem    = mainNav.find('>div>ul>.current-menu-item, >div>ul>.current_page_item, >div>ul>.current-menu-parent');
            }

But its not working … :(

Cheers Sebastian

SwiftIdeas

You’d want to change line 904, as this is currently only set when there is no currentMenuItem:

if(!currentMenuItem.length){ currentMenuItem = mainNav.find('.current-menu-ancestor:eq(0), .current_page_ancestor:eq(0)'); }

You’d want to check if there is an ancestor, and then if so set currentMenuItem to be that.

Hi Swift Ideas,

Your theme is beautiful and very functional. Thank you!

I would love to add a directory application to your theme similar to the one by Appthemes called Vantage. Any ideas or recommendations on going about adding a business directory feature to your themes? I would also be willing to hire your team for this since you did such a wonderful job with the theme.

Please let me know what the next step is. Thank you!

Warm regards, Kevin Williams

SwiftIdeas

Thanks Kevin.

Can you provide a link to the kind of thing you’re referring to? We aren’t available for custom work as we literally don’t have the time, but we can add it to the wishlist.

Hi Ed,

It is too bad you guys are so busy, but I can see why – high demand. The link to the business directory app is: http://www.appthemes.com/themes/vantage/

Thanks for your response. Warm regards, Kevin Williams

SwiftIdeas

Ahh ok. That’s quite a bespoke solution, would probably need to be the center point for a theme. We’ll keep it in mind for a possible future venture though.

Thanks,

I was curious if anyone else was having difficulties getting the images in the Revolution Slider to display properly.

All of my images display cut off / distorted no matter how large or small the image size

Thanks

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Are you adding these images as layers, or the slide background image?

- Ed

Default-user

Hi Ed,

No I did not add any layers. We just added an image to the slides

some of the images display properly on other devices ( ipad / iphone) but mostly they display distorted

thanks

SwiftIdeas

What you want to do is add a colour for the slide, then add the image as a layer – that way it won’t get distorted.

Hope that helps.

Hi

I’m interested in purchasing this theme. I bought your XO theme previously, and I’m sticking with your themes for all of my projects, as I trust your quality and support. But have a few questions, as I’m building it myself and want to be sure that I can do certain things.

1. Is it possible to not show the slider? 2. Can I remove or replace certain sections on homepage layouts? For example, if I choose the homepage slider layout, can I remove the recent projects section?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

1. Yes, it is possible to not have the slider, if you so wish. 2. Yes, you can remove or add any sections from any layout as those pages are built using our page builder. You can see the page builder in action here: http://flexform.swiftideas.net/tutorials/tutorial-page-builder/

Hope that helps

Hi, I tried to use a video as a thumbnail. The video is shown, but I cannot start it. What can I do? I tried a) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLif2uxjntI&feature=youtu.be b) http://youtu.be/DLif2uxjntI

And second question: Can I use a shortcode (Button) in the portfolio excerpt?

Thanks for help & BTW: great theme!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

I’ve just done a quick test using the first link you provided (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLif2uxjntI&feature=youtu.be) and it works fine: http://flexform.swiftideas.net/portfolio-one-column-standard-style/portfolio-4-column/page/2/ .

as for your second question; unfortunately shortcodes cannot be used in portfolio excerpts.

Cheers

Wow! Thanks for your fast answer!!!

Okay: it works fine with safari & ie. But firefox (latest version 22) does not work. Maybe a prblem of firefox. But would be great, if the videos would play there, too.

Is there a workaround to “activate” shortcodes in excerpt or a plugin I can use?

SwiftIdeas

Just found this – http://vimeo.com/forums/help/topic:105955 . Can you give clearing your cache a go and see if that helps?

You could do it by using the custom excerpt meta box, then editing functions.php line 1230-1242:

function custom_excerpt($custom_content, $limit) {
        $content = explode(' ', $custom_content, $limit);
        if (count($content)>=$limit) {
          array_pop($content);
          $content = implode(" ",$content).'...';
        } else {
          $content = implode(" ",$content).'';
        } 
        $content = preg_replace('/\[.+\]/','', $content);
        $content = apply_filters('the_content', $content); 
        $content = str_replace(']]>', ']]>', $content);
        $content = do_shortcode($content);
        return $content;
    }    

Hope that helps.

Can you help me with this http://mtvoice.com/projects/college-for-kids/ I used the page builder and there are two places with big gaps in them and I didn’t use the spacer option..

Thank you so much for this theme.. i really wanted this much ability to customize!!

Hi – Loving this theme – seems to be able to do most everything… However – I would like to change the colour and font of H1 & H2 (only). What do I need to change? Would it be best to switch to a child theme and modify sylesheets there (and can I do this without losing the site contents & settings?) Many Thanks, thewoosh

SwiftIdeas

You can set the h1/h2 colour in the color customiser, but for the font you’d need to add custom css for that.

Best bet would be to add it to the custom css box within the theme options panel. This will stay with updates, as will the customiser settings.

Hope that helps.

One hint: if you install the plugin TablePress (formerly WP-Table Reloaded) (with around 600.000 installations so far), the [table] shortcode for Flexform will stop working as TablePress uses the same syntax [table]. It simply says „[table “” not found /]“. The TablePress tables will work, but the Flexform ones not. Any workarounds?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

To get around this, you could change /includes/shortcodes.php line 282 to:

add_shortcode('sf_table', 'table_wrap');

and /includes/shortcodes/sf.shortcode.embed.js line 239-260 to:

if (shortcode_select == 'shortcode-tables') {

            shortcodeHTML = '[sf_table type="' + table_type + '"]<br />';

            if (table_head == "yes") {
                shortcodeHTML += '[trow]<br />';
                for ( var hc = 0; hc ';
                }
                shortcodeHTML += '[/trow]<br />';
            }

            for ( var r = 0; r ';
                for ( var nc = 0; nc ';
                } 
                shortcodeHTML += '[/trow]<br />';
            }

            shortcodeHTML += '[/sf_table]<br />';
        }

Great theme. How do you customize the style of the sidebar? Right now I’d like to tighten up the spacing, add child indent, and possibly wrap in something similar to the Accordion code (i.e. light border) or something similarly sharp.

Also, is it possible to change the style of the roll-over top menu? (again similar to the accordion—light grey border and grey fill with mouse-over)

Please advise!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

You could style the sidebar with some custom css, there are classes available for you to target. This would also be the same for the top menu. If you’re comfortable with a bit of css then you’d be fine.

Hope that helps, thanks for your interest.

Love this theme! Any plans to add a front end submissions form for user generated content (like stories and events)?

Does this theme have captcha and/or any anti-spam for the contact forms?

Hi there,

We recommend you use the Contact Form 7 plugin (free), which has captcha add ons and a wide range of uses.

Hope that helps.

Hi, I have 3 questions. ( Sorry ;)

I would like to reverse the animation on the portfolio pages. So the black overlay and title show first and then on hover the image zooms out and appears.

Also I want to change the ’>’ symbol’ to a ’+’

Finally I would like to increase the speed of the drop down on the main navigation slightly. Hope you can help :)

2) Flexform doesn’t appear to be wooCommerce Ready because all the products aligned vertically, one on top of each other. I need to aligned horizontally…

Just upgraded from 1.4.2 to 1.4.3 and getting the following error: „Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /my_hosting_path/wp-content/themes/flexform/functions.php on line 956“

Didn’t receive this before. Cannot change the php.ini since the site is hosted on shared hosting (since I guess it has something to do with PHP Allow URL fopen: Off).

Any idea why this didn’t happen on 1.4.2? workarounds? :-( thank you

SwiftIdeas

We had to change the google maps functions. If you ask your host to enable URL file-access, it will sort that issue.

Hope that helps.

Hi,

I have the same map problem (like others described). I’ve tried to figure out where the ‘Theme Update’ is in the WordPress dashboard but I can’t find it.

Even tho, I think we have the latest version already since we bought a couple days ago.

Please let me know, Cheers
