Hi,

excellent theme. At the moment it seems your server is not available. I got a lot of error messages like this

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 35127296) (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /vhosts/tradersapiens.ru/satori/ikebana/wp-content/themes/Ikebana/includes/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 690

all the best :-)

Cheers mike

Hey Xenopo!

could you please check once more now? It might have been a temporary hosting server setback; the demo is working fine from my machine at the moment.

Hi

Can you tell me why the page content is not being displayed?

Thanks

Also, do you know why this page is mis-aligning?

Hey VivaDigital!

The reason for both issue is the fact that no template has been chosen for the pages (i.e. the default template is used). Please try choosing the “Right-sidebar” template from the “Template” drop-down in the “Page Attributes” box while in the editor mode. Thank you for pointing this out and my apologies for the bug; I’ll see if it is possible to hide or override the default for future uses.

When I create a gallery of pictures and put a text on “excerpt” is not displayed when published. Is it possible?

satoridesign

Hey Deliopk!

That’s right, the excerpt text overlays are not displayed for “gallery” format portfolio boxes in Ikebana because of the navigation arrows that would otherwise be overlapping the excerpt. If you need it anyway, you can customize the “content-gallery.php” template file; I can also make a custom file for you myself if time permits.

Hello Andrew

For a long time I have searched for a suitable theme. Yours is unique! Thank you very much!

Can you help me with the following: In a portfolio item creation, I select one tag. Then I select in a second portfolio item another tag. In the Icon menu I made several page-link URLs. The result is that all portfolio items are located on the home page and that there are no portfolio items on the pages of the Icon-menu located. Do I something wrong? Does a tag referring to a page? How can I create different portfolio pages?

Best regards Kees

Andrew, I didn’t read the manual very well. Now I understand how the menus work….. Is it possible to use only the auxiliary menu, no items select in the main menu? I tried but that does not look good on smartphone. Sincerely, Kees

satoridesign

Hey Kees,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

Regarding your question: do I understand correctly that you wish to leave only the icon menu and get rid of the primary WordPress menu? If so, could you please provide a screenshot of how your website looks on smartphone screens – or better still, the URL of the website, so that I could check what’s going on there? Thanks!

Sincerely,
Andrew / Satori Studio

Hey Andrew The site: http://www.mariekevos.nl It’s still under construction but you can see what happens without the main menu on your smartphone. I got this idea from this forum (page 1) http://etchapps.com (looks nice) On second thoughts I think now it’s not a good idea to leave the main menu path. Sincerely, Kees

satoridesign

Dear Kees,

please clarify how exactly would you like the drop-down menu and the icon menu to behave (or look like) on smartphone screens – so that I could give you an appropriate piece of custom code to deal with that.

This is how the website looks on my smartphone at the moment and it is the intended behaviour of the theme – after extensive testing I’ve come to the conclusion that the icon menu should preserve labels on smaller screens to maintain proper usability. Thanks!

Best,
Andrew / Satori Studio

Hi Andrew. I’ll think about it. You ‘ll hear from me the end of this week. Kees

Default-user

Andrew, at this moment my daughter Marieke only wants the main menu, not the icon menu. So I’ve changed this on the site. A few questions: 1. Is it possible to display the name of each menu item on the drop down menu on smartphone (IPhone)? 2. Can you take a look at this: http://www.mariekevos.nl/duo-lavatera/ Two YouTube video’s on this page: the first by old embedded code of YouTube. the second by media short code. The first is not visible on iPhone, the second is visible on iPhone, but on desktop pc always displaying fullwith, whatever dimensions I’ve choosed. I tried the media short code on a large portfolio item (notation aside) with success on desktop computer (Imac). Best regards Kees

satoridesign

Hey Kees,

to answer your questions:

1). The theme’s drop-down mobile menu displays the names of menu items by default (please see the screenshot); could you please clarify what exactly you are trying to achieve?

2). The media shortcode of the theme embeds a responsive video; its width is set to the full width of the content so that it can exactly fit the width of the page on smaller screens. If you want a responsive video that still does not stretch 100% of the page width in full-screen mode, you can do one of the following: either change the template of the page to a sidebar-enable one (in case of posts and projects, there is a drop-down in the post editor mode where you can choose the template) – or encase the shortcode into an additional div element with a specified width (I recommend using percentages for better mobile experience), e.g.

<div style="width: 60%">
// the shortcode goes here
</div>

Sincerely, Andrew / Satori Studio

Hi Andrew,

Thank you !!

My first question, I mean the name of the page displaying on the dropdown menu, when the drop down menu is closed (displaying on iPhone) Example: http://www.klarinetstudio.nl

Best regards Kees

satoridesign

Dear Kees,

I am not sure what you mean – the Ikebana-based website’s mobile menu behaves similarly to the example you’ve provided (see screenshot).

Could you please clarify or provide a screenshot from your device? Thanks!

Best, Andrew / Satori Studio

Default-user

Hey Andrew. The link: http://www.mariekevos.nl/projecten/ On the screenshot, a moment ago, suddenly I saw the blurred titles in the menu. The colors have to change !!! Can you tell me how? Kees

satoridesign

Hm, apparently some versions of iPhone have a different background color of the drop-downs than I’ve expected. Thanks for pointing this out!

You can change the background color for the drop-down in the “Mobile menu item background” setting on the “Style: Header” tab of the Theme Options panel.

Possible to move the ‘play’ arrow (on Portfolio) from the upper right of the image to the center of the image? More like a play arrow like we are used to on sites such as YouTube, etc. Please advise. Thank you.

satoridesign

Hey there!

this is not envisaged via the theme’s back-end, yet it can be easily done via CSS: please go to the “Style: Add Custom CSS” tab of the Theme Options and add this code:

.overlay-video { background-position: 50% 50% !important; }

Hi,

I`ve got a problem. I canĀ“t install the demo content. After I have started the install process I saw a white screen. You wrote in your documentation a solution with FTP-Programm. My problem is I have absoluty NO experience with FTP because I use a pre-installed wordpress version on my server provided by my hosting company. I have no knowledge about server structures etc.

Is there really no way, to install the demo content on the normal way by the wordpress-importer? For me is very important to start with the demo content!

Can you help me? Thanks for your support in advance.

Hey Mike!

I can help you troubleshoot the content importer, for this I’ll need access to your WordPress admin – please send me your login and password, together with the website URL, to support@satoristudio.net (no disclosure guaranteed).

Hi Andrew,

Love the theme, which is making a client very happy.

I have a quick customisation question. There are a few images I have put in as portfolio items for purely decorative purposes on the home page. Is it possible to disable the links on these images, so that clicking on them does not take you to the portfolio “post”?

Many thanks!

Hi Andrew,

As tends to happen I found an answer to my own question, but I’ll post the CSS here for anyone else who needs it:

body.home #portfolio-list .inner-image-placeholder a { cursor: default !important; pointer-events: none; }

.project-hover { display: none; }

Cheers!

satoridesign

Hey Idea15,

first of all, thank you for the purchase, and for posting a solution for others to re-use!

I must note that the “pointer-events” method might not be suitable for everyone at the moment primarily because it’s CSS3 and still does not work in even the latest versions of Opera and Internet Explorer.

I’ve prepared another solution, which can be used in any browser and version: please download this archive with the upgraded format template, unzip it, and upload the contained file into the theme folder (/wp-content/themes/Ikebana), replacing the existing file. Once finished you will be able to add thumbnails (featured images) to “aside” format projects; in case such project has a thumbnail, it will display that images in an unclickable box on the portfolio page. In case an “aside” project doesn’t have a thumbnail set, it will behave as previously, i.e. display the unclickable text from the project content.

I will include this update into the next theme version as well, thanks for pointing it out!

Hello satoridesign, I am just customizing my newly bought ikebana and came on an issue – can’t set portfolio item captions. In the manual it’s written I have to input the text in excerpt field, which I did and enable in portfolio settings show on mouse hover or always show.

None of the above works. Running wordpress 3.7.1

Hi, Great theme I’ve a few question for you if can please help me.

1. How can I use the sticky posts with the first one be the logo.

2. How can I translate the “Icon menu items”.

Thanks!

satoridesign

Hey Beaverglobal,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

I will address the questions in the same order:

1). The sticky logo in the theme demo is created using the “link” project format; you can make it sticky by using the “Sticky (Always first)” meta box in the project editor mode. The “link” format supports thumbnails, and can direct the user to any URL you wish upon mouse click. Please see page 9 of the theme manual for more information on the “link” format and other formats.

2). I would like to clarify – are you creating a multilingual website and need to display the icon menu items in several languages on the same website?

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Default-user

Thanks for your response.

1. I’ll check the manual.

2. Yes, I’m going to have 1 website with 2 languages in the same website, so I need to edit the “icons-text” for the languages.

Thank you!

satoridesign

Hey Beaverglobal,

I’ve prepared a fix for the icon title translation issue, please download this archive, unzip it, and upload into the theme folder, replacing the existing file. Please let me know if it helps!

Excelent design!

I’m having a problem changing the background color of each individual project. I have read in the comments that I must press the submit button on the drop down box, but not changed.

I’ve tried repeatedly and with different projects but there is no way. Am I doing something wrong?.

This is a very nice theme. I’m thinking about purchase but, Will it runs on wordpress 3.8? It is woocommerce compatible? Thank you

satoridesign

Hey Teclat,

thank you for expressing interest in Ikebana!

The current theme demo already runs on WP3.8, and is compatible with the latest version.

I haven’t specifically targeted WooCommerce compatibility while creating Ikebana, yet I’ve tried installing the plugin together with the theme and they seem to have no conflicts; please bear in mind, however, that 100% WooCommerce compatibility is not a part of this theme’s offer, thus I recommend using the plugin at own risk. In case of serious issues I do offer support to all buyer though – so if you do decide to go forth with Ikebana and find significant compatibility issues with WooCommerce, do not hesitate to approach me by creating a topic on my support forum.

Hi, I am running WP 3.8. I tried using the shortcodes manually and it doesn’t work because the shortcodes builder is not showing up. I looked at the documentation and I see what I should be looking for but it is no longer around. When I put in the shortcodes manually, it just shows up as code. I tried in both Text and HTML editor.

Thanks, Gina

satoridesign

Hey Gina,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

Could you please check if the built-in “Shortcodes” plugin has been installed? Since there are some formal limitations and WP theming standards do not allow including certain things inside the theme itself, some of the functionality is packaged as bundled plugins which should prompt to install automatically after you activate the theme.

Please let me know if the above information was helpful!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Hi! Considering purchasing this theme but would like to know if this supports rectangular/vertical pictures or does it format them square?

satoridesign

Hey 2Buy,

thank you for expressing interest in my work!

Ikebana allows adding images of any dimensions, yet the portfolio grid that you see on the front page of the theme demo allows having only square tiles of two different sizes (you can manually set the sizes from the theme’s admin panel) – all images that appear in the tiles will be cropped to fit a square area, regardless of the original proportions.

Should you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact me!

Hey Andrew,

This is regarding the same problem that user Feto had and I’m quoting the solution that you gave to him. And Please note that I have gone through EVERY relevant post regarding that same topic, here on Themeforest.

Hey NP,

I’ve gotten to the root of the problem! It was indeed my fault, a confusion between the names and the slugs of portfolio tags – since the theme demo has identical tag names and slugs, it was not surfacing during the development. With the current code the icon links can also work, provided that you make identical names and slugs for all tags – but I think this is an unreasonable limitation which may affect both usability and SEO.

I’ve modified your files so that the tag archive page URLs match the icon menu generated URLs: in the “Filter” field of the icon menu tags in the Theme Options panel, one will now need to input the slug of the tag and not its name (I’ve changed all the values for you). Please look at your website, the icon menu links seem to be working as intended now.

I sincerely apologize for the error, and for taking so long to understand you requests (I should’ve asked for admin access right away :) And -thank you for pointing out the issue, I will definitely include the fix and additional information into the upcoming theme update!

Best, Andrew / Satori Studuo

This hasn’t worked for me and I really would wish to get this solved. I would be happy to give you my login details.

Best, Alok

satoridesign

Hey Alok,

I believe if was you who was mentioned by your friend Sahil in a recent support email – if that is the case, there’s no need to send the verification code as I requested in the email; in case it was not you – sorry for the confusion, and skip this paragraph :)

Regarding your issue: the tag archive pages do not work because of the permalink structure – yours is set to Default, while the recommended one is “Post name”. I’ve tried changing the setting in “Settings -> Permalinks” admin menu, yet it seems that your .htaccess file is not writeable, so I cannot change it via the WP backend. Please login into your WP admin, go to “Settings -> Permalinks” and look at the very bottom of the page for instructions on how to make your .htaccess file work properly. Please let me know how it goes, and do not hesitate to contact me in case of further questions.

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio
