Hello Again Manuel,

thanks for the update today – quick question. I had added a filter to the functions.php file in order to not show the default shipping weight/box size on each product page:

add_filter( ‘wc_product_enable_dimensions_display’, ‘__return_false’ )

Our products are weight specific, and shipping weight is another variable that does not relate to sales.

However this script does not seem to work with the latest update? Any ideas?

Thanks! -Jennifer

thanks for the tip manuel – I’ll work on creating the correct directory. I did add that function to the functions.php file – and have been replacing it every time we update. The last issue was due to a missing semi-colon on the end of the script.

Maybe in the next release it would be cool to add the function permanently – so that the default shipping weight/size don’t display on the product page – or can be toggled on/off.

Thanks!

Heads up – just found a bug. When you enable the site wide store notice – the sidebars disappear. :/

Sorry… what’s the site wide store? Do you mean the “wide page template”? In that case that’s normal, the sidebar is available with the default template only. Let me know please, Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel, I’m sorry to bother again but after upgrading to wordpress 4, the backend of Forte is locked and if I click on the Save Changes button in the address bar just adds a #. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Forte but it did not do anything.

With other themes it works.

What can I do?

Thanks and sorry

pixedelic

Mmmm… everything works fine for me. Are you running WP 4.0 and Forte 2.7.0? Could you let me enter you backend please? Here is my email address: manu[at]pixedelic.com

Hi, first of all great theme, my URL is www.uclic.co.uk but has a password block on at the moment, if you need this please send me your email so i can send over. Im having an issue with mobile devices only, on all my pages, images which have the pixImageLoaded class are not loading first time. If i touch the picture it opens up in the lightbox just fine and when closed all other pictures display correctly. On many pages i have tabbed content and it is only the first tab which dosent show the content images, however they also dont display on pages which dont have tabbed content. I have tried disabling all plugins and i still have this problem. The only images which appear correctly first time are ones with no class and dont have the animation effect as you scroll down the page. This is only for mobile devices. Thanks

Hi Luke,

what kinds of picture? Just to better understand. The demo seems to work fine (iPhone 5s, latest updates), but what’s your device? If you prefer you could disable the “reveal on scroll” effect, just add to Forte -> Styles:

#content img {
  opacity: 1!important;
  visibility: visible!important;
}

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Thanks Manuel, i managed to resolve that problem however i now how another really strange bug. On some of my pages (Internet Explorer only) the light box is showing my images slightly distorted, see this page http://uclick.co.uk.gridhosted.co.uk/create/kaleidscope-blue/ but on this page http://uclick.co.uk.gridhosted.co.uk/sit-black/ its fine??? Ive tried everything but nothing makes sense. Thanks very much

PS: I am using wordpress 4.0 (goddady)

The admin panel seems to work fine with WP 4.0 so, please, try to empty the cache of the browser, it has fixed the issue for the other users with the same problem.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel,

Thanks for the awesome theme, just a question regarding the contact form, is it possible to add a file upload feature to the contact forms?

Thanks a bunch

pixedelic

No, sorry: AJAX forms would require a particular workaround to play with file attachment as well and I preferred to avoid problems with all the server configurations of the earth :-) I recommend to use instead third party plugin like Contact Form 7 in this case.

I am using the Forte theme and like it a lot, particulary the page builder. However I 3 issues I can’t seem to solve.

1. My site is http://boostbuddy.net. Our heading is the logo and then the strapline “Vitamins for Students”. When you look at the site on an iphone the strapline “Vitamins for Students” is not rendering properly. The scroll down menu seems to interfere with it. 2. I have imported a lot of blog posts from a previous site to this new site. But I can’t seem to link them to a portfolio or gallery. I can connect a “Page” to a gallery/portfolio but not a “Post”.

Regards Des

Hi Des,

1. try to add this code to Forte option panel -> Styles:

@media (max-width: 320px) {
    #logo a span {
        display: inline-block;
        line-height: 2;
        overflow: hidden;
        white-space: nowrap;
    }
}

2. already replied via email, however here is what I’ve written:

blog posts are one thing, portfolio item are a different thing, a different post type. However there are some plugins, especially https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-type-switcher/, that can change the post type. I’ve never tried it, honestly, but I don’t know any other solution in this case.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel,

Migration issue Since I changed my directory site staying on the same server I lost the slideshows including that on the home page. I changed the image access paths in WP_FORTE but nothing works. What have I forgotten to do? Thank you in advance

My website: www.sudmontgolfiere.com

Hi Philippe,

unfortunately, since the slideshow and other shortcode creators uses serialized arrays, this creates some issues. If you want, if you trust, and if you have a mysql backup, I could try to fix the issue. Just contact me via email and provide all the details: manu[at]pixedelic.com

Hi Manuel,

I have been using your Forte theme for a while now. I love it! It’s beautiful.

Today I noticed that on my mobile phone the site is all messed up when looking at the mobile version. No header. A list of all pages shows up even the hidden ones. None of the theme is applied.

Can you help me figure out how to fix it?

The site is aviatorcameragear.com

Again, it’s just the mobile version of the site that is messed up.

Thanks for your help!

Cheers, Zeke

I paste here what I wrote vie email, for the other users too:

I think you’ve activated a plugin to display the site on mobile devices… don’t know, maybe “Mobile theme” by JetPack… could it be?

Hi Manuel-

I have all my clients using your theme forte as I feel it is the best theme out there.

But a new client had problems with the custom VISUAL BUILDER in the control panel today. She has a MAC computer (4 years old). When she makes a post with multiple SECTIONS and some of those sections have more than one COLUMN and she SAVES DRAFT. It resets all her COLUMNS to fill all the area in the SECTION and hides the other COLUMNS in the section. It is a real problem.

Have you experienced this problem before?

We are using Wordpress 4.0 latest version.

b. rgds-

bill

pixedelic

Hi Bill,

first of all thank you :-) Then, does it happen on any browser? Are the browser she uses updated? Is there content inside the columns (you can’t save empty columns)? I’m not able to replicate the issue on my Mac, honestly.

Hi again I have a page builder issue when trying to edit my home page at www.naturalphotographyspa.com that has been lingering for a couple months. I have been able to ignore the issue because my home page didn’t need editing, but that is no longer the case.

The problem is that the page builder tab has disappeared on the edit page for my home page.

With the Disable page builder box unchecked, all that is visible on the edit page is the visual editor tab. My home page is the ONLY page that is missing the page builder tab. All other pages and new pages i can create have the page builder tab. I have cleared cache and tried disabling plugins, to no avail. The problem appears both in Explorer and Firefox, as well as on other computers.

In other words, I have lost the page builder tab on the edit page for my home page and the ability to make changes to the home page with it.

In addition to the missing page builder tab, the home page edit screen where text, code or page builder functionality should be visible is blank, until I left click and drag the mouse over the edit screen, at which time code that is hidden on the edit screen becomes highlighted. The highlighted code appears to be what was created by the page builder before its tab disappeared and which was used to create the home page as it currently appears on the web site.

Any ideas how to get the page builder tab back. Thanks

Hi,

if you updated Wordpress to 3.9 or later and still running a version of Forte earlier than 2.6.0 you have to update the theme, because Wordpress has changed the version of the text editor and the theme had to reflect these changes as well.

If you running the latest versions of both Wordpress and Forte, check if the problem is one of the plugin you use: maybe they won’t be updated to reflect those changes.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi please let me know how do I Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS as this is slowing the websiesite

pixedelic

:-) I’m not a SEO expert, and eliminate the things that Google’s PageSpeed Insight recommends is not something that could be done with a click, sorry. You can’t reach that with some themes, because of their effects, layouts etc. You have to try to reach the best result by using tools like PageSpeed Insight, Pingdom, YSlow etc, trying to follow their tips according with your content, your server, the size of the page etc.

And also very famous sites have a bad result on PageSpeed Insight, to confirm that there isn’t a magic formula: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.apple.com%2F :-)

However you can try to move all the scripts to the footer, by using some plugins, but it depends on you, if you are ok that for a while the site looks messy (because of the lacking of javascript) and, also in this case, maybe you have to manage a little to make the site work because not every script can be put to the end of the document.

Here is a short article about that: http://www.feedthebot.com/pagespeed/render-blocking.html

Thanks for taking the time out to address this.

pixedelic

It’s a pleasure, I’m investigating about these things even if I’m not an expert, as I said. I’m working on a new theme and I tried to follow all the best practises and, by paying attention to any aspect of the home page, I reached this result:

But, as soon as I activate a plugin like Jetpack or I add some content more, in particular images, the rate decrease considerably.
