Hi parker, I have noticed an error in pk_style.css about .pk_alignleft .alignleft and its margins. If div class=”pk_image pk_alignleft” is used the text is very near to the image. I believe that margins should be corrected so:

original: top 3 , right 15 , botton 0 , left 0 correct: top 3 , right 15 , botton 5 , left 0

I ask you to control because so my div works fine.

Bye!

Hi,

thanks, I’ll check it out… probably the result depends on different situations and so in your case is better like you did. I’ll see ;)

I refer to div class = “pk_image pk_small pk_alignleft” and I compared the margins pk_alignleft with pk_alignright

Hi,

ok, I see, I’ll check it :)

Dear Parker,

i’ve bought it yesterday, very nice, but the “contact form” doesn’t work. i wrote my email in the php file and already checked all possible, but still give the same error “Please, type in your name.” exactly like does on your online live preview. Waiting for your reply. Thanks, Diego

ParkerAndKent

Hi Diego,

send me an email with the link to your template using the contact form on my profile page.

Hi guys,

I’ve fixed a naming error in the sendMail.php file. Please download again the package and update the file.

Hi Parker,

thanks for this great template!

But unfortunately, my Contact form is not working.. I tried everything to fix it. If I try to send an e-mail I receive an error (which i typed in myself in the php file). Furthermore, the resize-grabber on the right-bottom of the text box isnt working properly. It vanishes without resizing when pulled out or to the bottom, and cant be grabbed anymore.. I would be very happy if you could help me, or fix the problems.

Thank you very much.

you can find my testsite at: http://burakekin.com/elegant/light/contact.html

Best, Burak

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

the latest package I released 2 days ago has a fix for the contact form php file. Now it works fine, so if you didn’t download the update, download it. If you have the updated file probably the modification you made to the script is causing the problem because the contact form works fine, you can try it on the preview.

You can enlarge the message text area only within the limits of the layout, if you try to make it bigger obviously the ecdeeding part will be hidden and you won’t see anymore the grabber.

Thanks Parker, I downloaded the package just yesterday, and tried it also without modifications in the php file. Is there a specific link to an update, or is it just the Regular File to download in my purchases?

Can the enlargement of the textarea be disabled? Sorry, I am really bad in reading code :)

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

yes, just redownload the package.

For the textarea I don’t think there is a way to disable the resizing, it’s in any case something that not all the browsers support.

My web-server requires me to fill in the mailhost and login password. Is there an option to add these?

Hi PK

Love it so much I bought it. One thing though if you can help me. I wish to remove these thumbnails.

can you give me some guidance? Pretty please :)

OH, rated 5 stars :)

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

thanks. Open the prettyPhoto/js/jquery.prettyPhoto.js file and at the beginning, where you see all the html markup structure, replace this part:

gallery_markup:'<div class="pp_gallery"> \
        <a href="#" class="pp_arrow_previous">Previous</a> \
        <ul> \
         {gallery} \
        </ul> \
        <a href="#" class="pp_arrow_next">Next</a> \
       </div>'

with this:

gallery_markup:''

Be sure to delete only the gallery markup between the quotes, don’t delete the quotes or anything else.

Hi PK, What has happened to the back ground illustrations. I wish to do something similar and was expecting to get a file to work with???

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

the background images and all the other images are not included for copyright reasons. In any case, you can’t do much with the illustrations, are simple jpegs.

Okay, I understand. Could you give me a clue as to where I would include them? Is there a css style to handle this .jpg? I’d appreciate that. Thanks :)

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

there are images on the background in your version, maybe you didn’t see them :) Open the contents/back_grounds folder and check the images used for the light and dark versions.

Hey Parker

Awesome design, I have bought it, made all the content changes and have now uploaded to my server but now all I get is the background appearing. I know the first question you would ask is whether I have forgotten to upload a file but I havent, I have triple checked and then deleted and re-uploaded everything and still the same.

I have only loaded everything with in the light folder and none of the folders outside this. I have also checked the source code and the html file is there.

Can you give me any advice on what has gone wrong. Everything is fine when I open it on my local drive its just the live version!

Thanks and sorry to be pain

Hi,

as a first operation I would fix all the paths like this one in every html page:

../contents/portfolio/photography/images/02.jpg

The ../contents refers to a superior level that doesn’t exist on your server. Edit the paths to match your actual folder structure.

Parker

neil74white

Dude

I am so so sorry for you having to take the time out to look into this, I solved the issue and am very very embarrassed to admit that i had mispelt a prettyPhoto folder thus causing the whole site to melt down.

Simply awesome design and count me in for a 5star rating.

Sorry and thanks again.

Hi Parker, another great theme. I keep coming back for more! I believe this is my 3rd theme I’ve purchased from you, great work!

I have a question regarding the services “NEWS” page…

http://themes.parkerandkent.net/elegant/light/news.html

I would like to change this page and use it as my “SERVICES” page. I’ve changed the:

<h3>News</h3> portion to read <h3>Services</h3>

But the preview does not change. Any suggestions?

        <!--Start news-->
        <div class="pk_background_alpha" id="pk_news">
            <div id="pk_news_wrapper">
                <div id="pk_news_content">
                    <div id="pk_news_header"></div>
                    <div id="pk_news_list">
                        <h3>News</h3>
                        <ul class="pk_news_list">
</ul></div></div></div></div>
ParkerAndKent

Hi,

you need to change the title also in the jscript part of that page:

<script type="text/javascript">
    document.write('<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="css/pk_hide_on_load.css" />');

    //

    var pk_news_box_max_height = 550;
    var pk_news_title_label = "News";
    var pk_news_button_back_label = "Back";
</script>

Great theme!

I am trying to remove the 2 vertical lines either side of the menu and footer on the special pages.

Can you help?

Thanks in advance…

I love this template, and for that price it just fits in my current $ balance I have.

I wanna know something, a not so important feature but still-nice-to-have, is it possible to integrate dribbble somehow on the home? updating automatic or not? for example instead of Latest news or Latest work

again, it’s not so important, but it would be nice.

ParkerAndKent

Hi Daniel,

I don’t know if there is any js widget/script for dribbble that can load the feed and show the updates automatically (like the ones for twitter).

To make it non automatic is like adding an image and a link, so yes… in that way is absolutely possible :)

I’ll check around to see if anyone has made something like this in js, unfortunately the widget I made for the WP version is based on php, so it can’t be reused here…

Parker

DanielKeller

thanks for checking :) 2 probably easier questions:

can I set the Slider on Autoplay? I’m thinking to set the Slider as home.. that when I visit the page that it automatically plays

second question for the thumbs on the slider, can I make them appear automatic aswell?

and man, if you don’t stop making awesome templates I gonna be poor hehe :)

Daniel

ParkerAndKent

Hi Daniel,

at the beginning of the html pages of the galleries there are some js settings, the one you have to set to true to have the autoplay is this one:

var pk_gallery_slideshow_auto_start = true;

To automatically open the thumbnails check my latest comment on the first (previous) page of the comments ;)

5 stars, purchased this anyway, but now comes the question

do you integrate this Flickr support from this theme also in this one? as I like the look of the html one and how easy you can upload new work via flickr

sorry for so many questions :/

ParkerAndKent

Hi Daniel,

the Flickr integration requires a back end and a lot of php development, so would be very hard to be implemented in a static html template.

I don’t know why you’re liking more the look of the html one, considering that is the same template :)

Maybe the background feature that comes with this? The WP one is so much more easy to maintain, starting from the Flickr feature as you’re saying.

If you tell me what you find more appealing in this I can see if I can do something to make the WP one appealing like this one.

Let me know ;)

DanielKeller

ok, thanks for the quick reply, there aren’t big differences, just small things

so what’s different in the html version

  • the home page from the html one
  • the light skin from the html one
  • the sections seem more compact, the WP one has taller sections like in News, Services and Contact
  • the logo placement seems to be better to me
  • the loading line is on the bottom of the browser, instead in the image like in the WP one
  • the html one has no drop shadow on the images, the WP seems to have a slight one
  • and yes the background feature
a nice addition to the WP version would also be:
  • dribbble integrated on the home instead of “Latest News”

you wanted to know it ;)

Hi! I’d like to use prettyPhoto on the News template page inside the ‘pk_entry’. I added an ‘a’ tag inside the large pk_image div containing the ‘data-prettyPhoto’ attribute but on click prettyPhoto does not show up. pk_frontend.js gets loaded so prettyPhoto should be initialized.

Could you give me a hint on how to use prettyPhoto in the news template?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

do you have a link to the html page so I can check?

Cheers,

Thanks for the fast reply! I created an example from the News and Biography templates. http://pastie.org/private/fdp0htvqyc5uljyrqr9baa Please see lines 126-140.

Thank you.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

the markup seems right but I need to test the real page, not to look at the markup. Check your images paths, are they really there? In ../contents? Not in the same folder where the html pages are?

I need a link to the site itself, then I could say something more helpful ;)

Hi!

Please see an example at http://bit.ly/nIDz5l

Hello Parker,

Looking over the css code, and I was wondering if it’s possible to have background images cycle through one or two pictures?

If Not

Is it possible to insert a gallery on the home page? Also how do you enable to galleries to automatically transition from image to image?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

no, isn’t possible to rotate images in background, only one is allowed. You can use any page as home page, this is a static html theme, just make the index.html page like a gallery page or just rename a gallery page to index.html… don’t know how to explain it better, there’s nothing to explain :)

In the gallery pages, at the beginning of the html code, there are some js settings, you will easily identify them. Check for the auto play setting and set it to true instead of false.
