Hi! Love love love your theme!!!!

However, I need your help on the following items:

1. Video gallery – cannot get this to work on my “Video” page. You said to add a thumbnail in the featured image and add the video code. Do I need to use a plugin?

2. Would love to add a background picture or change the background color. Is it possible?

3. I know it’s possible to add just one video instead of sliders but still keep all the photos in my homepage slider. I read your blog but I am not successful in replacing home.php and adding a css.

4. I would like to scale the slider height to 300px but I cannot find the .gallery.slide-list(height: 300px!important;)

5. YouTube link/icon.

6. Removing “Recent initiatives” and “From the blog” What to replace the lines with?

7. Adjust the switchtime so it loads faster.

Thank you so much!!!!

PixelGrapes

No worries. Can you send me an email with your site link and a WP login. I’ll take a look at the video setup.

Hi Eggbit, did you give an answer to how to reduce the size of the slider please? http://www.ivebeenleftbehind.com/ Thanks

PixelGrapes

Hi. Because the slider is full width it sizes up proportionately to fill the screen. So the images need to be wide (1900px +) to maintain the aspect ratio. Otherwise they will be ‘zoomed in’. So if your images aren’t quite wide enough, you could paste them on a background. Then the height of the slider will be the exact height of the images.

Is there a support forum for this theme?

PixelGrapes

No, but I think I will create one. You can email me with any questions in the meantime.

Hi, I would like to change the background color and the color of the font. I’d also like to adjust the switchtime so that it loads faster. As it is right now, it’s loading too slowly and I won’t be able to actually use the theme. Can you let me know what to do?

Terri

PixelGrapes

Hi Terri,

Requires a couple minor code modifications.

In js/jquery.main.js you can adjust the slider speed around line 284
switchTime: 5000,
Each 1000 is about 1 second.

In your child theme or in css/base.css add

body {background:  #FFFFFF;}

with the color you want.

Great theme. Just purchased it. Is there a way to change the color scheme of the template, such as the gray area for the footer and header divider.

Also, it appears that when adding sub menu’, the drop down covers the main menu rather than to the side as most menus do. Can this be fixed. An example of this can be shown at the website. http://cdeinspires.org

PixelGrapes

Currently the theme only support one submenu level. I will look at adding support for more levels in a future update. To change the colours requires editing css. If you want to know exactly what lines to change just send me an email. – cheers

Default-user

I wish to change the colors of the footer area, top header and drop down. Basically everything that is gray, I want to change to a different color. I do not want to change the white background.

Default-user

any thoughts on this as I haven’t heard back.

PixelGrapes

Did you send me an email? Send a message to my profile.

Default-user

Yes I sent email. Will send again right now

Default-user

No response to my question. Sent multiple emails. Very unfortunate as this is a nice theme, but with no support as the other themes, it’s really bad. All I wanted was to change the color scheme of the theme and the menu links. Can you provide assistance, or not? Can you respond to my request via my email address insidesource2000@hotmail.com

PixelGrapes

Your question involves customization beyond the theme. I’m offering to help, but I haven’t received your emails. I’ll send some info to the email above.

Default-user

Thanks. Received your email. Not sure why emails did not go through before. Thanks for the prompt response. Regarding the sub menus. You mentioned this isn’t available in a previous response. Is that an extra add-on that I can purchase? If so, please let me know how I can purchase it.

PixelGrapes

Hi. No it’s not an extra add-on. If I do another major release for this theme I will include it.

Hello. Beautiful theme. I’ve got questions for my site http://www.fremantlewindfarm.com.au/

1) There is a phantom empty sidebar I cannot remove: no widgets are placed in my sidebar. How do I fix this?

2) I too wish to change the links to be more prominent (like SoerenReif). I tried what you said about looking in base.css but can’t find which line of code to change…

Thanks!

PixelGrapes

Hi. Place some content in the sidebar called ‘home’ to fill in the space. Or you can use the alt-home template. Sorry, which links do you want to make more prominent?

Default-user
mrfuller Purchased

What does alt-home look like, and how do I activate it?

I want all hyperlinks to be in a different style—they currently blend in too easily with normal text and our users will miss them.

Two new questions now that I’ve filled Home sidebar:

3) Why does the Tweet sidebar lack a left margin? 4) Is there any way to get rid of extra line caused by the blank “Our Initiatives” section we aren’t currently using?

Thanks again.

PixelGrapes

Are you using a child theme?

Default-user
mrfuller Purchased

I don’t think so. I’m using the theme that I purchased, I’ve only changed the font. I also edited the slideshow timing from the default, in the base.css. Please address my queries when you have a moment. Thanks.

PixelGrapes
Assuming it is the post links you want to change, you can add this to css/base.css
.post-block .box .text-box a {color:#990000;}
To remove ‘Our Initiatives’ section add this:
.info-section {display:none;}
Default-user
mrfuller Purchased

Thanks. The initiatives line is gone. Is there a way to make all the hyperlinks (even on the front page) a bit more emphasized, like in the Actions and in the From The Blog section? thanks

Default-user
mrfuller Purchased

Eggbit please reply to my query re: how to change the look of hyperlinks. I’m not referring to post links.

PixelGrapes

Ok, not post links. Is this for sidebar links, or footer or main menu. They are styled separately so I need an example of a link you want to display more prominently. – thanks

Default-user
mrfuller Purchased

I’d like the titles of the frontpage 3 “Actions” more prominently identifiable as links. And in our FAQ http://www.fremantlewindfarm.com.au/?page_id=294 all the links blend into the text so I’d like them more prominent colour or underlined. Thanks!

Default-user

(not just FAQ but all pages’ links)

PixelGrapes
Okay, if underlines work – that is the easiest approach. Just add this to the bottom of css/base.css:
a {text-decoration:underline;}

Any way to increase the space allotted for the logo? Its okay if the slideshow gets pushed down a bit.

See http://dailymusicfix.com/. We’d like to use a bigger logo on the top left.

PixelGrapes

You could add this at the bottom of css/base.css

.logo{height:150px;}

with the height of your uploaded logo. – cheers
Default-user

I went to appearance >> editor and I don’t see css/base.css. How would I find it?

PixelGrapes

You need to edit the file and then upload it (ftp). Or create a child theme.

  • Has been a member for 1-2 years

I see. Thank you.

One last question: See http://dailymusicfix.com/. On the bottom half of the page: How would I pull the blog box up so it renders right underneath “Blog”....always pulling only the most recent blog post – nothing more or less about blog on the homepage.

PixelGrapes

That requires custom modifications to the homepage template.

Default-user

Is there any specific guidance you can give me? I understand I am working within the box 1 section of the homepage template but I am unsure what to do. I also understand I would be workign with the blog section of the code limiting it to only one post. Is that work to be done on this line: $postno = of_get_option(‘number_posts’, ’’);

PixelGrapes

I will, but please email me (message my profile). The blocks of code are too big.

Default-user

Okay i just messaged you. Thank you in advance!

Default-user

Hi – any update on this? Is it easier to explain how to just remove the blog feed entirely from the homepage?

PixelGrapes

Yes. It is much easier to explain that. You can just add this to the bottom of css/base.css or your child theme css.

.posts-section {display:none;}

Hi Eggbit, I contacted you again by email, but had no answer. Maybe someone on this forum can help. I need to make some changes, but don’t want to make them on the base.css. I would like to make them in my child theme. style.css. Has anyone figured out how to do this? Anything I do to the style.css doesnt make a difference. Thank you for your help. Nadine

PixelGrapes

I emailed you? I asked if I could get a WP login – didn’t see an answer.

Glad it’s working ;)

Thanks, that worked! One other question for you: How do you fix the height of the photos in the “Recent Initiatives” and “Blog” sections so that they are uniform on the homepage? I appreciate your help!

PixelGrapes

It’s ‘masonary’ so they are placed on the pace from top to bottom like bricks. Not like a uniform grid. To make them uniform you need to use the same image sizes and lines of text in the summary. – cheers

HI,

How can i add RESPONSIVE google maps iframe on a page? When i add it.. that specific page is no longer responsive. I’ve tried to add one div on css style to solve this.. but no lucky.

sample google maps code:

<iframe src=”https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=200997427218495872043.0004d8b35add6ad30c4ef&ie=UTF8&t=m&ll=32.748013,-16.935425&spn=0.288754,1.028595&z=10&output=embed” height=”250” width=”750” frameborder=”0” marginwidth=”0” marginheight=”0” scrolling=”no”></iframe>

thanks in advanced, Carlos

PixelGrapes

did you try:

 iframe, object, embed{max-width: 100%;}

Default-user
kareyz Purchased

yes, and it didin’t work. i was searching for how to solve this and i try a lot of diferent things. sometime it work on mobiles but on pc it looks strange.

PixelGrapes

The above will make the iframe responsive. But the map is still basically the same size – If you want more control over the map, you should use the google API.

Hi, I am pleased with this theme. Although, when I have attempted to create the pricing table for a donate page it does not come out correctly. It comes out supper smushed to the left side of the screen and it also breaks the footer. Do you have any solutions? I’m building this site for a prestigious non profit and this is the main reason I bought this theme, to maximize donation abilities. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

PixelGrapes

Hi, Sorry about the delay. There are two possible reasons. The table needs ‘features’ filled out. Or you have extra tags like ‘pre’ or ‘code’ wrapped around the short code.

The theme just so awesome. but i have a little bit difficulties to setup the theme so it look like your example website. maybe you can help me with that? and i tried to follow the documentation about blog post. but it seem something weird. the post is not showing on my blog post.

also in the blog post it show every word i type and not showing a few sentences of summary. you can see from www.permitbeijing.org

PixelGrapes

Hi. You need to use the ‘excerpt’ field if you want a shortened summary. For the blog page you need to create a new page using the ‘blog’ template. Hope that helps.

Sorry I dont understand what ‘excerpt’ mean. a picture will be very helpful. Thx.

PixelGrapes

Take a look at the documentation under “gallery pages” and you see a picture of the excerpt field. It is the same with blog posts. ** You need to make sure you have enabled ‘excerpts’ under WP options tab at the top of your post.

Hi. If a add diferente gallery categories how can i use them on a page? is there some shortcode to use? something like gallery? and how i choose specific gallery category? I want to creat diferente gallery catogories then show them on diferente page of the site. Like “Products”.. “My stores”..etc.

Thanks in advanced :)

PixelGrapes

Hi, There is only one gallery page. It is sortable by categories. But it doesn’t support multiple galleries. You will need a plugin.

Default-user

What plugin i need for that? i’m having some problem with this theme. You should easily create an short code to show just “wanted” galleries. It will be really helpful. Is there any way when i show my [team] to have links to others page, for each “team member”, like i can change team to products, and then have a list of products instead of team members, and then each one has a link to a product name.

PixelGrapes

You can make the team members link to posts with a minor tweak. Send me an email and I can show you. – cheers
