hi, i got notification for theme update from v 1.7 to 2.0
...so my guess was i could update from WP but i was wrong, okay no prob… now, i download updated version 2.0, and i am ready to update Grider. so i got confused what to do when i read a file “IMPORTANT_READ_BEFORE_UPDATE”. which says to replace particular files (for example: _custom_meta_fields replace with _mimo_custom_meta_fields …etc).
i did exported file and mine *.xml does not contain ‘files that need to be replaced’ according to the instructions.
so, from file names i can only guess that “IMPORTANT_READ_BEFORE_UPDATE” applys to case when you update from any other theme to Grider!? – am i correct?
please can you help us with update to 2.0?
ps we enjoy Grider and building daily our new website look and as we very happy together with our audience we would love to continue without disturbance – thanx again for such a great theme
Hi, this update has been made to make the theme compatible with as many plugin as needed as recommended here in ThemeForest.
The only change of this Important Note is for the images and videos inside posts(choosen with the theme metaboxes ‘Add images to slider’ and ‘add videos to slider’)
If you have images or videos in your posts using this metaboxes you need to use the instructions to update all the content without losing those images and videos.
It seems you maybe haven’t used those fields so in your exported xml file does not appear them.
Anyway it is strongly recommended to do always a backup before updating the theme.
Otherwise, you don’t need to update if you don’t like.
If you have more questions or need further assistance please email me to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanx. so i have to copy v2.0 over on the server? – without harm to loose something. anyways, can you give me straight answers to make it clear for me and others
1. does update take effect on these files?
i have changed colors and add some social media ..etc -> (‘files’: content-single.php; style.less; menu.less; index.php; mimosocial.php; mimosocial.xml)
2. if yes, can i copy old ‘files’ (changed from previous version) into new updated v2.0 without running into problem?
3. can you make it easier for upcoming versions in future via WP update theme feature? – because this might help trouble doing update manually with a risk to live contents and stall.
Hi, sorry for delay tinblackline,
1.Yes. It takes effect to all files.
2.No, the variables in review, images and videos systems has been changed to prevent incompatibility issues, so the call to these vars should not work. I can help you to make a search and replace in each files sending you which names need to be replaced.
3. Yes, completely agree, i am so sorry for the inconvenience but the new theme submission requirements from TF are so strict with authors.
Otherwise you don’t need to update the theme. Version 2.6 works properly.
I’m very interested in your theme. Just have a quick question…
I’ve noticed that image size/proportion of post/items on the home screen are mostly rectangle. Is this size or proportion fixed? What I want is to have ‘square’ image in the layout. Is this something I can customize or it will automatically adjust based on image I post?
Please let me know. Looking forward to your reply.
Hi, this is a repeated comment ?¿?
Various issues in the demo on my Samsung Tablet.. Incomplete menu redraw,m links not responding etc.. too bad, this looks like a bit of a steam factory with many bells and whistles that are not quite smoothed-out.. I’ll be watching for future versions.. as I’ve Ive been observing it since it came out.
Hi ianstudio, thank you for the feedback, i will fix the issues, let me see them in a sambsung mobile and include the fixes in soon 1.2 update.
Hi, I love this theme. However before buy it i would to be sure how advertising can be located. Is it possible to have a banner on my front page Header?
Hi, yes, this is easy with a text widget for example. Also you could install whatever banner manager plugin you are using.
Thanks, buying it now…
Hi, Is there a way to make the categories pages mosaic or masonry?
Hi, you can publish a newswall widget showing the category you need, in a custom override, and assign it to the page you like.
Tell me if you got it.
that is, can i use the four columns no sidebar template for the category page?
Hi, the answer is yes, but not linking to the category directly in menu. You need to show the category in a custom page.
It is so easy and explained in documentation, i can help you do it if you need it.

Hey – I’m using stripe Plug in menu (http://codecanyon.net/item/stripe-a-lightweight-menu-plugin-for-wordpress/full_screen_preview/5242155) yet when I use it with this theme – It doesn’t render it correctly. It adds a bullet point before the word and (http://imgur.com/HqoT5Wu) If I switch the theme to the stock wordpress one, it works fine – it only seems to be having trouble with this theme. Any ideas?
Hi, for me the image url is notworking, please could you send me a link to your site to email@example.com to see what is happening?
Amazingly quick to reply and sort out issues!!! Recommend this author and theme!
Thank you for theme – it is very cool.
I have some questions, I will be glad if you answer:
1) I won’t to add in header another social media , which is not available now. How can I do this?
2) Where I can find social media sharing? I won’t to add another one
3) Where I can edit text in search filed? I mean this one: type your search
4) How I can edit test style just for one widget? For copyright
5) Is it available to edit date format in twitter feed widget?
I translated your theme to Russian – how I can send you localized files?
Thanks and best regards
Hi, thank you!
1. In widgets/mimosocial.php file, just copying the same structure of other social icons
2.In file html/content/content-single.php in line 355 to 418
3.In file searchform.php
4. With css, you can give your own classes in file widgets/copyright.php and include css in file less/style.less
5.In file widgets/mimotwitter.php you can find the code in line 75, but this has to be with twitter aPI, maybe you can find some documentation about changing twitter API date format online, and change the code.
Hi, thank you.
One more question:
I want to show image for post on main page, but when I add featured image it is showed in post before heading: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3691507/Screenshots/ux4o.png
