Site is taking shape and looking snazzy!

It would be great if I could figure out how to manage the order of portfolio items in 3 column template, but I’m stymied (or stupid). Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your consideration!

SkatDesign

Hi there,

On the portfolio page the most recent items are displayed first. To change their order just edit the date of the item (from each element edit page).

Cheers!

It’s the simple things… Thank you.

Here’s another obstacle: I set the number of items for portfolio page to 12 and I have a total of 16 items; links show for page 1, 2 etc. However, link to page 2 generates a 404. Seemed like something glitched, because it worked initially. Additionally, when I click filter link e.g. for “Print” items, and there are 12 print items, if 3 of them flowed to page 2 (which has disappeared), only 9 items will show. Are the 3 supposed to flow back to page 1?

Advise if the above needs clarifying. Thank you again!

SkatDesign

Hi,

Related to the 404 page try to flush your permalinks. Go to “Settings > Permalinks” and simply hit “Save changes”.

The portfolio filter won’t pull the items that are located on the next/previous page because those are generated dynamically. If you want to filter all items you must set them up without pages.

Having a problem with the logo changer—and really any image that blends perfectly with background (no box around item). It is showing ugly black track lines around the image! Not sure why this is happening.

You can see what I’m talking about if you look at the logo at top of my site, and also the “subscribe to our newsletter image” placed at bottom of page.

Thanks!

Ok this is weird…I’m only having the issue I just posted about on Google Chrome.

SkatDesign

Hi,

Could you please send me your url so I can check it out?

Cheers!

SkatDesign

I’ve checked you website and it seems that indeed Chrome is the only browser with problems. My guess is that there’s a problem of rendering of the image. Can you try to save your logo in other format (eg. .png) and try again?

Cheers!

Thanks! Tried .png and that fixed the problem!! :D Having a couple other issues now however—unrelated.

1. When trying to copy and paste the shortcode for special dropcap letters, it doesn’t work right. The dropcap shows up in a separate white window that scrolls in itself separate from the rest of the text on the page.

2. How do I get the blog post section on the main page to go away. It looks ugly like a basic blog not a pro website. And when I tried to add a picture to the post to make it look a little more attractive, the pic ONLY shows up when you click “read more” not on the front page.

Thanks!

SkatDesign

Hi,

1. Make sure you check the shortcode also in “html” view mode because sometimes WP tends to automatically format the code.

Example:

[dropcaps style="circle"]N[/dropcaps]

2. Make sure you set up a static front page. If you don’t know how to do it you can find detailed info in the help files.

Cheers!

Default-user

Awesome! Thanks!

Also, it seems that Chrome is once again causing me problems. If you look at the quick link icons (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) in top section; after the first slide goes by, the dark background of each button vanishes. it looks really bad but only does it on Chrome.

SkatDesign

Hi,

This is weird, I’ve checked your website and you are right, but I can’t replicate the problem on my demo page.

Also, I’ve noticed that if you resize/zoom on the page the problem goes away. For example, if you hold on “CTRL” (on Win) and scroll your mouse in or out, the problem goes away.

Cheers!

How can I get more spacing between the sidebars in the blog page. I created a sidebar just for blogs but Im showing tight spacing between two widgets.

Also the blog page is not showing the sidebars at all. Not the blog itself but the page housing all blogs. How can I get this page to show general sidebar. http://www.showthemovement.com/twinjosite/blog/
SkatDesign

Hi there,

1. The twitter widget can only be once. In the footer or in the main sidebar. If used in both locations it will be displayed just in one.

2. Go to the theme options page > Styling Options and paste this in the “Custom CSS ” box:


.sidebar_widget {
    margin: 0 0 20px;
}

20px is the current bottom margin of the widget. Adjust it to fit your needs and hit “Save Changes”. Done.

Cheers!

Regarding the widgets- The twitter Feed is enabled to show 3 tweets, but only showing two on both the footer and the sidebar widgets.

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Note that if the twitter widget is enabled on both sidebar and footer it will not work. You must choose just one location.

Cheers!

Default-user

thank you for the reply. I enabled the twitter twitter widget only once now on my left footer but still showing only the two tweets as opposed to default 3 I enabled in settings.

SkatDesign

Did you write any recent tweets? I’ve checked the demo page and it’s working fine for me. Just update the “Number of Tweets” in the widget to 3 and make sure you press “Save” in the widget box.

Cheers!

Is there option to disable responsive CSS layout? I may want to see the site as normal on iPhone.

SkatDesign

Hi there,

You must remove some lines from the theme files. Please send me a message through the contact form on my profile page and I’ll send you detailed instructions.

Hi,

I really like the theme, and am using it for my haunted attraction.

Here’s my site: www.DeadFarm.com

There are two questions I have.

1. Is there anyway to change the boxed in “i” image on the homepage right below my slider? It obviously doesn’t go with my “haunt” theme, so I’d want to change the image, but I’m not sure how or where to in the theme options.

2. Secondly, on the home page slightly below my slider I have three columns with images and info and the “MORE INFO ” button below. But for some reason my BUTTON doesn’t format like yours does on the Gotham preview. It needs an extra line break, and on one of the columns it is actually on a line of text. And that’s because I copied in the XML file provided and edited your home page, and just inserted my text. Not sure why this is happening.

Any help would be great.

Thanks, Eric

SkatDesign

Hi there,

1. You can go to the theme’s folder > images and edit the file named “info_icon.png” to replace the “i” with anything you need.

2. This is happening because the text is not wrapped in a paragraph. To fix it go to “HTML” mode of the editor and wrap it like this:


<p>
... YOUR TEXT HERE ...
</p>

Cheers!

Thank you! Love the theme.

Having a problem with the Recent Projects feature for the Homepage. Before it was displaying items from portfolio no problem, but all of a sudden it is no longer showing anything in that section. Here is the link to my site: http://www.eastsidechurch.net/

Thanks!

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Is the “Recent Projects” section enabled from the theme’s layout manager?

Cheers!

Default-user

Yes, it is enabled. It has been enabled for a while and suddenly was no longer displaying any content.

SkatDesign

Did you edit the theme files in any way?

Cheers!

Default-user

Not that I know of… the only code I edited was for the responsiveness which I followed the instructions you gave to another customer for.

SkatDesign

Did you assigned the “Homepage” template to your front page? And did you set it up as a “static front page”?

Also, I noticed a small javascript error in Firebug. Try disabling your plugins one by one, maybe there’s a conflict.

Let me know how’s going.

Cheers!

Default-user

Did all that and nothing helped.

Default-user

Actually, it now looks like the portfolio section isn’t working at all! When I click on “Media” which is my assigned portfolio section, nothing shows up. I have it all set up correctly and it was working fine before!

SkatDesign

Could you send me a test username and pwd on your website through the contact form on my profile page so I can take a closer look?

Cheers!

Default-user

Just sent to you.

I’m not able to insert a divider in the home page to distantiate 0ne half, One third and Boxed frame section….

I need to inser a space and image divider.

what I have to do? thanks

www.exportnet.it

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Just add the divider shortcode before the boxed content.

Example:


[divider type="space"] or [divider type="image"]

Cheers!

Default-user

I know that…..... I read your ddocumentation… But it doesn’t work!

I’m working at the home page’s Custom Section Content and when I put a divider before framed slogan or after the Latest news, there’s no change at all!

Also I’m not able to make visible a framed image with [framed_image]

Please check home page www.exportnet.it and tell me what I’m doing wrong.

Thanks

SkatDesign

I’ve checked your website again and it seems you have the “Magic Quotes” feature of the php enabled. It is recommended to disable that, but if you don’t know/want to do it here’s a fix for it:

Go to the theme’s folder > includes and edit the file named “custom_content_section.php”. On line 3 replace this:


echo do_shortcode($data['custom_content_section']);

with this:

stripslashes(do_shortcode($data['custom_content_section']));

Save. Done.

This is also the reason why your images are not pulled into the page. Because the “Magic Quotes” escapes all the code inserted into the content of the control panel.

Look how your image url is generated:

\”http://www.exportnet.it/wp-content/themes/gotham/images/creative.png\”

Also, I’ve noticed that on some users’ servers the shortcode attributes don’t work if wrapped in quotes (“). Try inserting the attributes without them:

Example:


Instead of this:

[divider type="image"]

insert it like this:

[divider type=image]

Let me know how’s going.

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks for your reply!

I replaced the code on line 3 as you suggested but with no result: all Custom Section Content disappeared!!

So I removed quotes from shortcodes and it worked!

But now remains a problem: in Italian often you have to us ’ type, as you can see in the first text under MERCATI : l’individuazione (correct) appears instead in this way l/’individuazione (wrong).

How can I fix it?

Ciao

SkatDesign

This is happening because of the “Magic Quotes” I wrote above.

I’ve checked the code that I’ve sent you and it seems I forgot to write one thing. Sorry for that. Here’s the code you need to paste in:


echo stripslashes(do_shortcode($data['custom_content_section']));


Note the “echo” that I forgot to put in. That’s why when you replaced the code the content section didn’t appear.

Let me know how’s going.

Good eve!
Been waiting for a reply to a post left a few days ago and out of curiosity came to check for one (in case I forgot to check the email request). After reading my post it dawned on me that it may have been somewhat vague as to whether it was a comment or a question. Sorry about that! To clarify, it’s an inquiry.

I really like this theme. I am interested in purchasing this theme but I have one question for you…

is it possible to change the style of the animation on the thumbnail rollovers within the portfolio? I like that the title shows up but I do not like the way the thumbnail image rolls around on the cursor roll out.

Thanks!!!

SkatDesign

Hi there and thank you for your interest.

It is possible if you have some css3 skills to change the styling of the thumbs.

OK So the site creation and development was a complete success…UNTIL THE VERY LAST PART ! :(:stress: Everything was going smoothly until I got to the part where I had to re create everything on his server and webspace. Mine,

http://www.spikestyle.com/jimmyblaze/

works perfectly and is exactly how it should be. Now, this afternoon I re created the entire website on his server…

http://www.jimmyblaze.com

and everything works great EXCEPT the main page. The thumbnails show a

\”\”

instead of the image, and the links point to

http://www.jimmyblaze.com\/"entertainment\/"

when is should just read “entertainment” which is extremely puzzling to me. I tried everything I can think of here and I cant come up with a solution. The only thing that is different between the two is the web space and this crazy error is showing up. I am going to email you the login info for both. Please get back to me ASAP !! THANK YOU !!

Hi there. I would like to use my own editor for CSS , rather than the custom CSS box within the Theme.

I tried to @import a new style sheet within the style.css and in default.css (under the style folder), but neither worked.

How do I correctly import a new style sheet into the theme?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

You can simply edit the “default.css” file found in the “styles” folder or add you custom code to this file.

Or you can add this code just at the beginning of the default.css>


@import url('your-custom-file.css');

But, make sure that your custom file is located in the same “styles” folder.

Cheers!
