Hi Mike, I had a quick question about the logo size. Is there any way i can include a larger logo? almost like a header image?

for example on my blog, if I resize my window to about 75% width (13” macbook) my post images display full width and it turns into a one column blog. It looks like i could possibly include a logo twice as wide as the current one.

I love this theme, but wish i could use an image header or some sort like other fashion blogs. Let me know if this is possible! thank you

how do i get post notes to show up as an item in the post details?

mikedidthis

Hey,

Enable Post Notes – That will turn on post notes when a user clicks the permalink page.

Many Thanks

I mean is there a way to get the number of post notes shown in the menu displayed beside each post on the main page? Currently I have Permalink, Time, # of Comments. I’d like to display # of notes here if possible.

mikedidthis

Hi.

Currently not, but if you can email: support@mikedidthis.co.uk I will create a support document with how you can add this to the details.

Many Thanks

Count me in as a buyer – fantastic work! Have a modification question though: I’m really only interested in Facebook sharing (perhaps twitter too), and would prefer to use the FB provided share/like buttons instead of the social sharing functionality currently being used. Any way to make that happen?

mikedidthis

Thanks Brownje6.

Can I say no, but then say yes with modification (It would only be Facebook and Twitter tops, nothing more).

I mean no, as in, I don’t want to get into sharing politics with the theme, but I say yes as I am a sucker in pleasing customers! :)

Email the support: support@mikedidthis.co.uk and I will see what I can do, but it won’t be till the end of next week as I have some updates to other themes first.

Many Thanks

Hi Mike, I am also interested in replacing the share button for a Facebook one. Where is the support site so I can look up details on some of the requests made here?

Thanks

Hi Redtank,

Thanks for the message. Sadly there is no ‘Purchased’ tag against your name. Have you purchased ‘Focus’?

Many Thanks,

HI, how can I do to install it in tumblr ???

Hi again, Hope you are well. I just downloaded the new version and had a couple of questions.

1. Even though I have selected “large logo” and “use image logo only” is is showing the 40×40 swatch of my logo. I double checked the code the code for the large logo is in there not sure why won’t display it.

2. I tried using the instragram plugin to get my access token but it is not returning any info. Do you have any way to reach out to them there is no contact info on their webpage. Thanks!

mikedidthis

Hey!

Thanks for getting back to me. My suggestion would be to revoke access and start the process again.

I also notice you don’t seem to have this button: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i7lczhdcrspljtk/shot_121211_080139.png

Once you click that button, you input your Instagram Username and Password and login. Your then redirect to a page containing your UserID & Auth Code.

Let me know how you get on.

Many Thanks

Hi, I heard back from the Instagram plug in author and he gave me a bit of info that helped me get it working. After authorizing the app, if the plugin page doesn’t show you your id and access code look at the URL it redirects you to. For me it was: http://projects.craftedpixelz.co.uk/jqinstapics/#access_token=143937992.674061d.fd57f562f3464b0cb09413a525690de0

The 9 digits after the ”=” are your user ID and everything after the ”.” is the access token.

mikedidthis

Hey Fleming!

Ahh that’s great news! I am really glad you got things sorted, and thanks for letting me know, so I can advise any one else using it (I don’t use instagram)

Many Thanks

Hi Mike,

Great theme – love the clean lines and focus on content!

I installed it a few days ago and am noticing a small issue (running on PC with Chrome). When the window is horizontally re-sized and decreased in width, the “About me” text ends up at the bottom. Which is fine, however – the link icons (archive, email, twitter, linkedin, etc). stop working.

Any solutions or settings I can adjust to make them work?

thanks! P.S

mikedidthis

Hey P.S.

Sadly I can’t replicate the issue your having. All link icons work no matter on there position. Such as: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yqwqumopdvy4x3t/shot_121212_070616.png

Notice the hover state on the tumblr link? There is a clickable element. The screen shot was taken on Chrome / Windows 7 (My main dev machine).

The only option I have is to ask you for your Tumblr URL so I can debug directly.

Many Thanks

Mike

Hey mike, Just a quick question. Is there any way to move the page list above the introduction bio on the right? or to the top under the logo?

Thanks man

Hey man, any idea why the social media buttons dont show up in google chrome?

Here is a screen shot

Hey!

And nope, here is Chrome 23.0.1271.97 Windows 7: http://db.tt/hoYdk8y4

Can I ask what browser / os / device etc?

Thanks

Mike

Default-user

Chrome 23.0.1271.97/Windows 8/on a HP Pavilion g6

mikedidthis

Hmmm. I literally have no idea. I presume all icons are missing from the theme then? Does the demo theme show the icons, or infact do any of my themes show icons using the set up above?

Does the console come up with any error messages?

It maybe worth trying to clear your cache, as I would guess its related to this: https://productforums.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/chrome/8-RXiHZq5d0%5B1-25-false%5D

Sorry for all the questions, but I don’t have a Windows 8 device to test on. Getting a virtual machine, but may take a day or two.

Thanks

Hey Mike – Kick A$$ Theme – bought and having fun with this finally… IM new to Tumbler, and to theme forest – so forgive me in advance – I know u already deal with allot of questions and perhaps its a full time job in its self.. ;(

1. I keep getting this pop up during my customization of your theme that there’s an update on themeforest but where do i get it? or posted so I can grab and apply this update that its saying i need?

2. I have been playing around with your stuff, an dgreat by the way, its teaching me a few tricks about how these are developed – I applied a huge background, pretty busy, is there a few lines in your code of where I can find a way to either A: color all post #fff, and rightside About me description with the same #fff?

3. What are these; FilteredBG, FilteredBGRetina? and best sizes for these… I know they are backgrounds but to what and for what?

4. th eleftside Buttons for quotes, permalinks, reblogs, whats the easiest way to change these colors out in your code? Dont wanna replace anything i don’t have too, nor do it in your code and just add my own css…

Well keep rocking it man, and thank you in advance for your time in answering these, again forgive me if these are redundant, or just not enough knowledge of how tumbler works – kyle :)

mikedidthis

Hey Kyle,

Glad you like the theme. Could you possibly forward your questions to: support@mikedidthis.co.uk and I will get a reply sorted for you.

Hello. I’m thinking about purchasing this theme in the near future. My one question: is it possible to upload a widget for ad space on the right hand side of the page? Thanks!

mikedidthis

Hi,

Google AdSense support will be included in the next version of Focus.

Any other type of advert can be added as the theme is just HTML.

Many thanks,

Mike

Love this theme, works really well. You’ve done a great job and it makes my Tumblr site look fantastic, thanks! http://altgame.com

I have some feedback questions:

1) I have enabled ‘ask me anything’ and replied to someone’s question. On the theme the question displays in the H1 font style and is too big IMO. I added this to the css to make it look how I prefer, do you think you could do something about this in a future update? .answer h1 {font-size: 0.9em }

2) When I hover over a post the links to the left appear. One it titled Text and when I click it it goes to a 404 page: http://altgame.com/tagged/text/chrono - have i got something misconfigured?

3) When I change the browser width on Chrome (possibly on other browsers too), at certain browser widths the column containing the text of the main body seems to go much narrower than needed so it leaves a lot of white space either side. When the browser gets much more narrower the column jumps out to be wider (more acceptable) again. So it is only some in-between browser widths that cause the column width to go too narrow (IMO). Could this be changed to use up the space better?

Once again, fantastic theme. The above are mostly annoyances but would make the theme perfect if you could resolve :)

mikedidthis

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the kind words. Responses below:

1) The solution would be to add your CSS, to the Custom CSS box. This way you can change anything you like, such as the Answer Title, and you will be able to upgrade with no issues.

2) Yes. Sadly you need to tag each post type, with what post type it is, for the links to work. For instance, for text post, you need to add a tag of ‘text, for a photo, a tag of ‘photo’, etc. Once done it will work as intended.

3) This is something on my notes for the next update. Focus is one of the first adaptive / responsive themes I did, and I am looking at revising the media queries to make things a little smoother / more consistant.

Hope these help, anything else, fire a message to: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Many Thanks

Mike

AndyOvine

Thanks Mike, the first two there did the trick nicely (except for the answer post which doesn’t appear to work with a tag of ‘answer’) but everything else working fine now.

Look forward to the future updates, thanks once again :)

mikedidthis

Hey Andy,

Glad they worked. I will update the ‘answer’ post tag to work correctly on the next update.

Many Thanks

I don’t understand how to link to my Facebook profile properly. Where it says Facebook Account I am putting the link for my page into it. Is this wrong? Is setting it up properly similar to setting up Instagram where I have to have some sort of special id?

mikedidthis

Hey,

For facebook you just need to add your username. For example:

http://facebook.com/taperandfade = taperandfade

Input ‘taperandfade’ as your Facebook Account name and your set.

Many Thanks

Mike

I really like this theme. But, it would be even better if there would be a widget for Pinterest (like twitter, dribble, ...) Is that easy/possible?

I’m sure I will buy it if it’s easy/possible.

Default-user

Yes, something like that seems perfect.

mikedidthis

Ok, leave it with me, I will see what I can do. No promises :)

Hi Mike,

I’m having a bit of trouble with this theme. I’ve eliminated the left-margin on the post text and tags in the CSS, but Safari is displaying the text differently than Firefox. In Safari, the text underneath each post is offset to the left of some images when the browser window is widened, whereas in Firefox it is properly aligned at all widths. I’m also noticing the images display at a larger size in Firefox versus Safari when the browser window is widened. Any ideas why this could be happening. Here is the URL: http://vivianchen.tumblr.com/ Thanks.

mikedidthis

Hey aberrant.

That’s odd, I can’t replicate the issue my side, so I would suggest clearing the cache of your Safari browser.

If you having any more issues, please contact support: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Many Thanks

Your Tumblr Theme was included in the 16 Best Tumblr Themes post on Webelemint. Check it out and maybe tweet or share it?

Thanks!

mikedidthis

Hey Mike,

Thank you very much for sharing my themes. Will fire a tweet shortly :)

Mike

Great theme you got there. I only have one problem with it: when posting a video (for example from vimeo) the post details overlay the video itself – is there any chance to remove the post details just for videos? Or move it below the video? Thanks in advance!

mikedidthis

Hey Jakob,

Glad you like it!

Sure thing, if you send a message from my profile page, Support will help you out!

Hi Mike,

How can i show full size images on the blog? I use focus as an image blog; http://vintagetechads.janhermenploeg.nl, but it seems Google Chrome does not show my images at their full size.

here a permalink to one of my posts; http://vintagetechads.janhermenploeg.nl/post/42022020285 and here is the deeplink to the image shown in that specific post: http://25.media.tumblr.com/4934df202b040bf69508aaf73b0f5d13/tumblr_mhjphz3xis1s4h6dco1_1280.jpg

How can I have images shown full size or at least a very large size on the blog page?

many thanks, Jan

mikedidthis

Hey Jan,

Thanks for getting in touch. You need to disable ‘Enable Vertical Images’ in the Theme Options.

‘Enable Vertical Images’ sets images to a maximum height of 80% of the viewers vertical screen size, so that image is fully viewable without scrolling.

Many Thanks

Mike

hey

was hoping you could tell me how to add in a “like” function to the hover menu. Love the theme. Excellent.

mikedidthis

Hey,

Can you message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk with further details about the ‘like’ feature.

Many Thanks

Mike
