Hi, How make image post above the video post on the blog page? Because now, the image is always below the video (youtube/vimeo). I’d like to make the thumbnail image of video first (using the aside post option), then if I click the image, it will go to video page. Thanks.

Hi!

I’m afraid that’s not an option in Hiker. You would need to make some customisations in order to achieve this. You can find unexpensive WordPress customisation services at Envato Studio for example.

Any fix for horizontal and vertical look in gallery ?? Realese date ?

Default-user

BUMB :-( – Swipe navigation will DO JUST FINE, or please do a THIKKER LINE in the bottom so people can see it. It is not only me that love your theme. So you can build more on that hiker theme

explora

Adding a swipe navigation for mobile does sound like a good idea. We will considering adding this in our next update.

Looking forward to this very much.

Any fix for horizontal and vertical look in gallery ?? Realese date ?

explora

Hi. A fix has already been applied and this should be working just fine. If yo have updated the theme to its latest version and still are experiencing this issue, please open a ticket in our support system so we can have a look at your site.

Kind regards, Sebastian

In the Home Layout Builder, when I click “Add Block,” literally nothing happens. Any help would be great. I can’t register on your support site because your captcha is absolutely broken.

Hi,

Just added this to your wp-config file and the plugin is now working:

define( ‘WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT’ , ‘512M’ );

So increasing the memory was indeed the solution. This is necessary because you have so many posts on your site (3500+), and PHP was running out of memory.

Default-user

Sebastian, the site still refuses to work. Thanks anyways.

explora

It was working when I tested it 3 days ago. As I said the issue is that you have a huge amount of posts (most of them empty). Not sure why you have those posts like that but if you remove them then your site should work a lot better.

In Home Layout Builder, is there a way to have a photo and then the text is on a clear or lightly shaded background?

explora

Hi,

Not sure I understood correctly. If you mean you want to have text on top a photo, you can. Just add a TEXT block and set a background image.

Kind regards, Sebastian

When I fill it in it looks like this

On the live site, it looks like this

So, I would like to lose the colored box, if possible.

explora

Oh, I see now. To remove the colored backrounds from the quote blocks, you can add this code to you Custom CSS field in your Theme Options:

.block.quote .inner-content, .block.quote .inner-content * { background-color: transparent!important; }

Perfect! Thank you Sebastian!

What setting is not right in my portfolios – The share button which is next to the button that closes (and opens) the description part does not drop down the various share buttons when I mouse over it.

Another issue. I just added more photos to a portfolio (something I have done before – created a portfolio with e.g. 3 photos and then a few days later add 6 more) and the resulting portfolio has the new images that are horizontal being small in the screen and the caption (though it is the proper place on the backend) not showing up.

explora

Hi,

Yes you need an older version of the AddThis plugin, the one that is bundled with the theme. If you have trouble downgrading to the required version, please open a ticket in our support system and include your site’s login data so we can do it for you.

Regards, Sebastian

Perfect! It works now!

Glad to hear that :) Cheers!

Hi there! Love the theme. Just some quick questions before I start delving deep into doing my site. I’m going to feature a few different bloggers on my site to help me with content so my questions involve the homepage block grid just so I know what I can and cant do.

1) When making a block on the homepage for a post, is it possible for it to show a featured image there along with the text or does it have to be white?

2) Is there anyway to show the authors name on the block when making a post block?

Thank you so much for your time!!! Regardless I’m going to use the theme, but these two features would make all of the difference for me!!!

Default-user

Thanks Sebastian for the lightning quick response! I will surely open a ticket by weeks end to remind you guys! I’m hoping this can be a feature as it would literally make this theme perfect to me and I’m sure others, considering I think it would make people want to click those blog posts from the homepage!

Thanks for even considering it! Makes me even more happy with my purchase. Enjoy your vacation.

explora

No problem! Thank you!

Default-user

Just saw the update!!! Thank you very much!!! 5 stars! rating now.

Hello There,

I love the looks of the theme. Nice work! I just have a couple of questions before I purchase, to ensure that it’ll work for me.

1. Will Portfolio body text or individual image description text allow for linking, or a link button? Ultimately, I need to be able to link from individual images or portfolios directly to that image in my shop.

2. A single item in the shop can have variation/options, correct? For example, I can have one item for a particular photograph, and then offer it in differing sizes/prices within the single item in the shop?

Thanks in advance, Josh

explora

Hi,

Sure, you can have links on the portfolio items description. And single items can have variations yes, I think so… that’s a feature that is built in WooCommerce I’m not mistaken.

Kind regards, Sebastian

We are wondering if you can set up a password protected page so that you can grant access to specific people to view the gallery on that page?

explora

Hi!

Sure, WordPress includes that option, just set your page’s visibility to “Password protected”. Here’s an article about it: http://codex.wordpress.org/Content_Visibility

Kind regards, Sebastian

We want to remove and replace the image “premium theme hiker” from the home page on the left side right under the home page slider. Is there a theme option for this yet? Custom CSS?

explora

Hi!

That image is only visible if you haven’t created your Homepage Grid. As soon as you add a new block, those that you mention will disappear. If you need help creating your Homepage Grid, please refer to this article: http://docs.explora.com.uy/03-homepage-grid/

Kind regards, Sebastian

I have a problem or am simply confused about images in the blog section.

I would like an image to show on the main page. But, if I put in a featured image, it is too big. If I use the Hiker gallery, it frames all the photos the same. So, if the image is taller than wide, the bottom is cut off. If it is abnormally tall but still wider than tall, it also is cropped strange.

If I forgo the image on the main blog page and put the gallery into the post itself, when someone clicks on it, it opens on a separate page and not in a window like in other Wordpress galleries… no matter if I choose Link to Attachment Page or Media File.

So, my question is… is there a way to use the Hiker gallery but it shows the whole picture in that frame – though shrunk down to a maximum size?

Default-user

Also, how can I get the Categories widget to show like in your demo site – circles around the words that turn a different color when you mouse of them?

explora

Hi,

Sure, that can be achieved with some CSS. Can you please open a ticket in http://help.explora.com.uy/ and let us know where exactly is the gallery? Then we can send you the code to achieve this.

About your last question, those are actually tags, not categories. We must have incorrectly titled that widget. If you want your categories widget to look like this, this can also be achieved with some custom CSS. We can help with that too. Please remember to mention it in your ticket.

Kind regards, Sebastian

Hi, newbie here on this of WP themes. I have bought one that I thought it was “easy to use” but I guess is not really intended for an end-user as myself. That’s why I’m thinking of changing to a new theme, and I really love the way the Porftolio gallery displays!

Before I buy your theme I have some questions:

1] The Visual Composer is embebed or is a plug-in that in the event I decide to change the theme in the future I can use it with that new theme?

2] Is it easy accomplished [without coding] to modify the look and feel of the “pages”?

3] I’m an architect so in my portfolio I expect to display several projects; each project has to have a fact sheet [year of project, year of completion, status, sqmt, etc etc], credits [author, advisors, etc] and a description. For what I saw in the template I have now each time I upload a new project I have to “set up everything again”; so my question is in your theme can I make a “template” for the projects, and then is just completing the data that changes, for example, I change Location, Year and description, but just typing the text for that, not having to configure everything again.

4] I’m confused in some questions I read here, does your them support swipe in mobile? And can I use my plugin of MasterSlider?

Thanks in advance for answering during your vacation

Cheers!

Could you update Hiker Demo to Version 2.1 (January 28, 2015)

Because after update, ON PHONE the frontpage show 2 columns BIG IMAGE!!!. Thats huge very huge. Please return to the original like on computer

explora

Hi,

Not sure I understand what you are asking for? This is how Hiker always looked like…

Regards, Sebastian

If I load HIKER DEMO on Iphone 6 ( horizonbal mode ) It shows frontpage like on a Computer

BUT AFTER I update my Hiker theme too NEW version IT SHOWS, 2 columns BIG IMAGES!!!! Not like on computer

explora

Yes that’s how Hiker looks like in mobile devices. The grid is displayed in 2 columns. If it looked different before that is because the iPhone 6 was not being recognised as a mobile device. Now it is.

Kind regards, Sebastian
