I wanted to be able to add alt text to my logo, & ideally be able to modify the alt text. A more technical friend tells me there is a bug in the code – a missing ‘echo’. She added it to the code below. It’s the last ‘echo’. It creates alt text, but it still isn’t modifiable, which would be better. Could you please add the ‘echo’? <?php /* Custom Logo */ ?> <?php if ( wpex_get_data(‘custom_logo’) !== ’’ ) { ?> <?php echo get_bloginfo( 'name' ) ?> <?php } else { ?>

Sorry for the delay,

  • Yes I was missing the echo, thanks for the heads up!
  • Modify the text at Settings->General (change site title).

You’re welcome! Can the alt tag on the logo be something other than the site title? I’d like to be able to get different keywords in there per page.

WPExplorer

You’ll need to alter header.php. This time of customization is beyond the scope of support.

Good evening! I have a little problem I can’t seem to solve. When we add “read more” in a portfolio item, it works ok, just showing the inicial text in the category list, but not in the home page or related portfolio (when you see a portfolio item). I’ve tried many things… no results.

Could you help me?

Thanks a lot!!!! :)

WPExplorer

To be honest I’m not quite sure what you mean. Can you send me a private message via my profile page? If you can send me the URL and logins it will speed things up greatly because if there is an error I can fix it up for you via the dashboard!

My website is coming together, bit by bit. Here’s something that isn’t critical but would be nice to be fixed: The slideshow on the PC version has arrows. This makes it obvious that someone can scroll between images. The phone & tablet versions don’t have the arrows. So if the slideshow is stopped, it isn’t obvious to scroll. Can I add arrows or ideally can you?

I’m also wondering if, for the portfolio, the alt tag can be different than the heading.

WPExplorer

The slider arrows are outside of the slider, so if they were to display on mobile devices they would go outside the main container and cause issues.

If you want to display the arrows you should alter the CSS (they are only hidden via CSS) but also customize the design probably so they go over the slider and not cause issues with the layout.

For the portfolio the featured image (when not using a slider) uses the post title for the alt for SEO reasons. If you want to change it alter content-portfolio.php line 77.

If you want to grab the image alt attribute instead you can do so like so:

get_post_meta( get_post_thumbnail_id( get_the_ID() ), '_wp_attachment_image_alt', true);

how can i integrate it with woocommerce without layout issues?

WPExplorer

You’ll need to create a woocommerce.php file, instructions are here – http://docs.woothemes.com/document/third-party-custom-theme-compatibility/ – this should be done via a child theme.

how can i hide date in portfolio item?

WPExplorer

You can hide with CSS like this:

.portfolio-entry-date { display: none; }

Hi, great theme! But I’ve got one question:

In a portfolio-page: Is it possible to show a thumb-gallery that is added in the “Post Media Alternative”-section parallel to a gallery-slider on top? At the moment I can only add a slider OR a gallery, but not both. Thanks for the coming answer :)

Default-user

oh and I would also like to know how to hide the date in the portfolio and under the portfolio-thumbs on the home page.

WPExplorer

You can hide the data with CSS, example:

.portfolio-entry-date { display: none; }

For the portfolio, this would require editing the template files. If you aren’t sure how maybe you want to checkout my latest theme which includes a page builder you can use the custom build your portfolio items – http://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019?ref=WPExplorer

Hi I’d like to remove the search bar and I found while searching comments that there might be an easier way than deleting it from the header.php file?

Also I can’t get the links to work on the main page under “recent work” and “recent news”... how do I fix this? My website is here: www.signedbyheidi.com great theme!

WPExplorer

You can hide it via CSS, example:

#main-search { display: none; }

Links appear to be working for me ;)

Default-user

Ok thanks!

The links when you click the words “view all work” and “visit the blog” under recent work and recent news are not working. Please help!

WPExplorer

These links you need to add yourself in the theme options. There is no way possible for the theme to automatically know where you have setup your blog and portfolio so they are options in the admin under the homepage section.

Is this theme compatible with WP 3.9?

WPExplorer

I haven’t seen any issues yet, if you run into any though please let me know! The live demo is currently hosted on 3.9

Question with the theme: If I open one project/portfolio page, is there a possibility to remove it (the current one/page i am on) from the related projects that appears below?

Hope that is clear enough.

WPExplorer

Hum, that should happen by default. If it’s not working in that way, I will definitely update it with the fix. Its useless to show the current post in the related items…you are correct.

Default-user

Do you know when this will be updated? Thak you!

WPExplorer

If you’ve purchased the theme just send me a private message via my profile page and I’ll zip over the updated version.

Hello,

If I understand correctly, all blog portfolio items crop the image in the preview, only when the image preview is clicked, it’s viewed in full – see link to explain what I mean …. http://themeforest.net/item/illustrate-responsive-portfolio-blog-theme/full_screen_preview/5069761 – same for the gallery.

Is it possible to edit this, so the preview image is not cropped, in all instances where there is a preview? I ask, as I want to show my paintings, but they can’t be cropped in anyway.

Please advise. Thanks.

Default-user

Actually that link may not work, but hopefully you get my drift?

Default-user

Can you reply please?

WPExplorer

Sorry for the delay.

  • On the archives – http://illustratedemo.wpengine.com/portfolio/ – these are cropped to 400px wide by 320px tall. You can alter these widths in the theme functions at functions/image-default-sizes.php, however, the reason they are cropped here to a fixed width is so that the grid rows are evenly spaced.

Hi, I’ve read through many of the comments and your responses (all great in detail) but I can seem to find an answer I’m looking for. I’m trying to have my home page be just a slider page and have my portfolio under a new menu section called “Works.” It seems like the portfolio posts only show up on the bottom of the home page though. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Default-user

..I feel stupid. So I read this part: By default custom post types in WordPress will create archives automatically at your-site.com/post-type-name. So for example your portfolio will be located at your-site.com/portfolio (unless you change the post type name for your portfolio from the admin panel, in which case the URL will be at the custom name you chose) but I’m not sure where to find the place to change the URL. This is the main thing holding me back from completing my website and I’d love some advice if you could. Thanks again.

nevermind got it.

Awesome, glad you got it woking, thanks for letting me know and so sorry for the delay!

One strange things happened, we put online the website builded with this theme, and it does not want open it http://mewalton.com/

If i change the theme in the admin, for example to the twentythirteen the website show up.

Any ideas? Do you need the account?

Thanks in advice?

WPExplorer

Sounds like there may be an infinite loop somehow. Are you able to check slow query logs or error logs on the server?

If you want send me a private message with temp admin logins and I can have a look. You are still able to log in correctly?

Hi!, just bought the theme today, love it. Having a PHP issue though, and can’t seem to figure it out. I’m getting 3 notices: ‘Notice: Undefined offset’ ‘Notice: Trying to get property of non-object’ ‘Notice: Undefined index’

Any idea of how I can fix this? Thanks!

Default-user

I figured it out, simple mistake. Have a question though. Is there any way to put a YouTube video under the image slider on the portfolio page of a project? Thanks.

We are trying to change the size of a logo to make it 940 pixels wide, but when it’s uploaded it shrinks. Can we make the logo that wide? If yes, what do we need to do to do that?

WPExplorer

This would go in a child theme style.css or in a custom CSS plugin. I am a big fan of the custom CSS module in Jetpack.

Thank you for replying, can you please be more specific on exactly where the code should go? I tried it and it didn’t work – I need more specifics – like in the style.css file, put the code between xxx and yyy or after zzz

WPExplorer

You should never add code in the theme’s style.css, please see my response above.

If you work with a child theme the style.css will be empty by default so it would go anywhere in there.

If you use a custom CSS plugin, then the code goes wherever you are supposed to add the code for that plugin.

How do we use the text option in the upper right of the header? We have a custom logo & entered text in the header text field & nothing showed. http://173.254.28.72/~httpkit1/kdbj/

WPExplorer

It’s the “Header Right” option in the theme panel. It should work, I just tested it. If you can’t get it working send me a private message with temp admin logins to check it out and see what may be wrong.

I’m checking with the person who is working on my website. If he or I do want to send you a private message, what is the best way to do that?

Make sure to use the account used to make the purchase when sending the private message, otherwise I will assume the theme wasn’t purchased and will not provide support, thanks!
