Hi Mike,

How can I show the post details permanently visible under the post (instead of to the upper left), like when you resize/minimize the browser window?

Awesome theme btw!

Cheers!

Mike,

I notice that number of comments, permalink, share, etc. are displayed in the details of each post. Why is there no notation of post notes? Is there a way to add post notes into that list of details?

Thanks.

Oh, also… if you notice, I manually added the icon for my RSS feed after after the Tumblr icon. (http://speltr.com) Just a suggestion, but perhaps you would consider adding RSS to the theme options in the next update…

mikedidthis

Hey Johnjsavo,

Thanks for the message, replies below:

1) This article gives details on adding a post notes count to the details. Originally the theme was designed without them, at the time I was new to Tumblr. I will try and add it as an option in the next version: https://mikedidthis.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/850462-add-notes-count-to-post-details

2) This article gives details on adding a RSS feed in the social links. Again, it was something I didn’t see as a feature at the time, but will do my best to add it as an option in the next update: https://mikedidthis.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/850643-add-rss-feed---social-links

Anything else, feel free to contact: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Thanks

I think this is by far the best Tumblr theme anywhere.

In use at http://speltr.com

Any chance this theme will ever be coded for WordPress?

mikedidthis

Hey Johnjsavo!

Thank you. Maybe, but I can’t say much more! ;)

Hi Mike,

i added the Piwik tracker code to the theme but can’t get it to work. any tip where i should insert the code?

Greetings Jake

mikedidthis

Hey Jake.

I had to look up what a ‘Piwik Tracker’ was. Any tracking code should go directly before the closing body tag:

</body>

If your still stuck please email: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Thanks

Mike

For the text posts you can include images, but the images and text don’t span the entire column. See example: http://artfromconcentrate.tumblr.com/post/39992398908/featured-artist-christina-boyer

Can you make it so the images span the entire column? Would love much nicer.

Thanks,

Ahren

mikedidthis

Hey Ahren,

I have sent a reply to your support question.

For future reference, its mainly to do with not exceeding the recommended characters per line, and the limitations of Tumblr, which doesn’t allow images inside a text post to be wider than 500px.

Thanks

Mike

Hi there! Just bought your theme – looks great. I have ones question about the LinkedIn Account. Currently, the URL is coded for a personal page (www.linkedin.com/in) however, I’m needing the LinkedIn page to be a company page (www.linkedin.com/company).

Is there any way to modify this?

Thanks!

mikedidthis

Worked like a charm – thanks!

I just downloaded and installed this at http://janetlackey.tumblr.com/

it’s beautiful! and I think this is going to work but I am having a big issue (literally, haha) I can’t figure out:

some of my photos are showing up HUGE – stretching way larger than they actually are. looks like this is for posts that have multiple images but also some single image posts. how can I fix this? I have “enable image stretching” unchecked and I have “enable portrait image” checked. is there something else I am missing?

thanks for your hard work!

mikedidthis

Hey Janet,

Sorry to hear you having issues. Basically the theme looks to allows load the largest version of an image. Tumblrs largest is 1280px. In your case, images that Tumblr classes as 1280px wide, are actually a lot less (around 600 – 800px) so look distorted.

My advice would to check ‘Enable Vertical Images’ which may help the issue. Other than that if you can message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk I will try and get some Custom CSS written to counter act the stretching.

Thanks

Mike

where can I change the color of my links?

mikedidthis

Hi,

Its tide into ‘Main Heading Colour’. If you want the heading / links to be different, you can style the links with Custom CSS:

p a { colour: #ccc; }

Thanks

Twitter feed seems to be broken. Not working in the theme preview either.

mikedidthis

Hey ryguysd,

Yep, sadly there is an issue with the Twitter feed due to the old API being removed.

I am currently updating the themes to use the official Tumblr method, with a release due shortly.

Many Thanks

Mike

Hey Mike,

Great theme overall, however I am having one huge problem with it. For some reason, on Macs with Retina displays, my images are blurry, despite them being uploaded as massive jpegs and the images appearing sharp when in slideshow view.

I’ve made sure that the “enable image stretching” option is toggled off, and I’ve tried toggling “enable vertical images” on and off, because you mentioned that to someone in these comments. No luck at all.

It’s as though the main feed images are being stretched in standard view to accommodate the retina display, even though the originals I upload have plenty of resolution to give . I’ve confirmed this at the Apple store as well as on a friend’s machine, so I know it’s not a user error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi stylewild,

Sorry I forgot to mention, it maybe worth you sending me a message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

As I am close to finalizing version 2.0 and it maybe worth you trying it out first.

Thanks

Have just done so. Thanks again for your prompt replies!

mikedidthis

Hey,

No need to thank me, thanks for the patience. As I said, we will get this sorted.

Hey Mike, Great theme! I love how BIG everything is displayed. I noticed the Twitter feed wasn’t displaying and that you’re going to be fixing that with the new version of the theme. The instagram feed doesn’t seem to be displaying either. Same issue? or am I just doing it wrong? Also! I found a html widget for displaying pics from a different tumblr blog I have, just trying to work out the best place to slot it in so it displays before or after the instragram feed? (If that’s too complicated to explain here, that’s fine too. I know this might be a pretty detailed request) Anyway, great theme! Leo

mikedidthis

Hi Leo,

Thanks for the message, glad you like the theme.

At the moment, the Twitter feed isn’t working on Focus due to the API changes. However the instagram feed is working, so I would check the documentation and make sure your inputting the right id / auth code.

The new, rewritten, faster version of Focus should be out by the end of next week. This will include a working Twitter feed as well as some other goodies.

I am looking for people to test it before release. If you fancy being a beta tester, please message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Many Thanks

Mike

Hey Mike, Have the theme and love it so far! Just got into the whole Pinterest thing, and was wondering if it’s possible to integrate that into the theme/sidebar of ‘Focus’? (so viewers can see latest pins, etc)

mikedidthis

Hey vocastic,

Glad you like the theme! Consider a Pinterest Widget in the next version of Focus.

:)

Can a facebook page facepile be added to this? Would like to add one on the right hand column, under about. Do let me know, if it can be done, would like to purchase this template! AJ

mikedidthis

Hi AJ,

I think you asked at the right time as I am just finalizing the widgets for the next version.

I presume this is what you mean? http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/facepile/

Many Thanks

Hello,

I want to add instagram pictures to the sidebar. I can see the menu of this themes gives such option, however I don’t know how to set it up. Could you guide me through the process please?

Thank you!

mikedidthis

Hi,

The documentation that comes with the theme explains the process of adding instagram.

If your still stuck after reading it, let me know.

Many thanks

Mike

Hi Mike,

LOVE the theme! Any chance the Twitter feed will be coming soon? Thanks :)

Zoë

mikedidthis

Hi Zoë,

A new version of Focus will be out before the end of the week.

Many Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike, thats great thank you for the fast response :)

I also wanted to ask, in the dashboard I added an avatar which appears automatically as my favicon. But this also appears as my About photo int eh sideboard…how can I change the photo that appears here and keep my favicon the same?

Thanks!

mikedidthis

Hi Zoe,

If you message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk I can give you details.

Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike, last question. The photos are appearing blurry on the home page. When I click on them they are very sharp but on the home blurry…any ideas what I’m doing wrong? http://zoenobleblog.tumblr.com/

mikedidthis

Hi,

The images will appear blurry at first and then turn sharp when they are replaced. If you leave the page for a second or two that should happen.

If for some reason its not, message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk with your OS, browser and as many details as possible.

Many Thanks

Mike

Hi,

mikedidthis

Hi Sultan,

That is correct as I haven’t released the update yet :D

I am just finishing the docs, then its out!

Thanks

Mike

Hi Mikedidthis – I can’t seem to get the instagram feed working even with my access token and user name (shopthenailroom)

Same goes with the twitter feed on the sidebar.

Could you provide a solution?

mikedidthis

Hi jessey_k,

Sorry for the delay. Sadly the Tumblr feed is currently broken.

However I am releasing an update this week that fixes both the widgets mentioned as well as and a host of new ones.

Thanks

Mike
