Great job on the new update 1.6!

PixelBook

Hi.

You can still have multiple slideshows. Nothing has changed.

In some scenarios maybe you need just one slideshow on multiple pages, that’s why the “default slideshow” setting is present in the admin panel.

But you can still create different slideshows on any page you want.

Thanks

Ah, OK thank you.

V 1.6 Hello!

Three more questions regarding slideshows:

(1) Before, there was a “Read More” link with the caption. This would auto scroll to the content below. Is that eliminated?

(2) Captions before appeared in white text over a black background. Captions now appear in white with no dark background… making it difficult or impossible to read overlaid on portfolio images. Is there a way to bring back that background feature? Or has that feature been eliminated?

(3) Links on slideshows open in a new window. How can we make these links simply go to a URL in the same window?

Thank you!

PixelBook

Hi again.

1. now any link with a class of down_arrow will trigger the same effect.

<a class="down_arrow">read more</a>

so you need to add this link to your desired caption

2. this feature has been eliminated but the transparency of the background images can be adjusted in the ‘edit media’ section. Decreasing the opacity will make the text caption more readable.

3. you need to open up immersion/framework/global/theme_functions.php and look for the line

slide_links                :    'blank',

and add this line below it

slide_links                :    'blank',
new_window: 0,

by asigning the new_window property to 0 the links will nt open in the same window

Thanks

Thank you, PixelBook… the two workarounds (1 & 3) worked fine.

As for #2, feel the original method (dark box with white text, or customized colors) was much more elegant and contained. Probably (a) few designers want text running across the middle of their design images, nor (b) have text potentially running the entire length of the screen (depending on the length of the text), nor ( c) want to dim their design images by changing opacity on each image; this not only devalues the impact of the portfolio images, but also requires much more maintenance on the user side. I’d like to request at this time to please bring back the feature that displayed captions in a box—either at the lower right portion of the screen, or a user-designated location on the screen. Thanks again.

PS: appears to be the image “Description” that is displayed in the slideshows, not the image “Caption”. So “Show captions” option in “Portfolio projects” should probably be updated to reflect that.

PixelBook

Hi.

The caption text doesn’t need to run the entire length of the screen. Like specified in the documentation the captions support shortcodes. So for example you can create a 3 column layout with the first two columns left blank like this:


[column size='1/3']

<p></p>

[/column]

[column size='1/3']

<p></p>

[/column]

[column size='1/3' pos='last']

<p>some text</p>

[/column]

notice that the first 2 columns are empty (they have an empty paragraph tag). So the text in the third column will appear aligned to the right (just like in the previous versions of the theme). The same effect can be achieved with a four column layout.

As for the dark box that you mention you can easily use the ‘highlight’ shortcode which will add a background color around your text. So the above code will be changed to

[column size='1/3']

<p></p>

[/column]

[column size='1/3']

<p></p>

[/column]

[column size='1/3' pos='last']

[highlight color="gray"]

Maecenas sollicitudin libero dolor, vitae pellentesque dolor varius vitae. Donec eu eros ultricies, auctor purus vel, bibendum orci. Duis quis lectus sit amet nisl congue scelerisque eu a risus. Aliquam eleifend eget tortor non posuere. 

[/highlight]

[/column]

This code will be placed in the ‘description’ field, like you said.

And of course you can further customize the highlight shortcode.

Paste this code in the custom css textfield in the admin panel

.highlight{

display:block;
padding:20px;

}

This will increase the padding around the text.

I hope this helps.

Thanks

On Friday, I showed this theme to my client (preview) and was given the okay to purchase it. I have been trying to go back to the preview, but it send me to a holding page instead. Before purchasing… is sits theme still available and going to be supported? Thanks so much… it is literally the most beautiful, simple, elegant theme in the forest.

PixelBook

Hi.

Yes the theme is still available. There was a problem with the domain of the demo site but has been resolved.

I use a child theme and get this error this error in error log Failed opening required ’/home/missionw/public_html/wp-content/themes/immersion-missionwebs/css/dynamic.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/missionw/public_html/wp-content/themes/immersion/framework/global/theme-functions.php on line 344

PixelBook

Hi.

I have researched the problem and found the fix. Open up framework/global/theme-functions.php and look for the line

$css_dir = get_stylesheet_directory() . '/css/';

and replace with

$css_dir = get_template_directory(). '/css/';

Now the error dissapears when activating the child theme

Thanks

Default-user

How can I add this in child theme instead of touching the main theme files?

PixelBook

You can’t. Just by replacing that line you fix the problem.

Hi there,

I’m catching up on the updates but there is one I can’t find the answer to.

Is there a way to have the ‘down arrow’ effect on multiple slides, so that it reveals new content based on each slide? I guess essentially that would mean multiple pages in the one slideshow.

Eg. there is a slide for about, and when the down arrow is clicked it reveals about content, but there is also a slide for contact, which when clicked reveals contact instead.

Thanks so much for your amazing work!

PixelBook

Hi.

This functionality is not available. However, you can put links in each slide that can point to different pages.

Currently the ‘down arrow’ effect will display only the page on which the fullscreen slideshow is deployed.

Thanks.

Lovely update. Thank you. Is there a way to remove the dots navigation on some portfolio pages, vs. overall? If I have to add code, where would it go?

POOR IMAGE QUALITY

We are loosing image quality when the site is viewed on tablets or smart phones. This is particularly true with our full screen slide show. How do we fix this? Original images are of very high quality and look as expected on computer screens. The problem only occurs with the smaller devices.

Thanks!

Hi

I am using Immersion (1.3) on WP 3.3.2

When I try to add a gallery I have this problem: I start uploading images to the gallery, which works, but when I click “Insert gallery” nothing happens.

What could be causing this?

Hi, Can’t seem to log into the support page. It appears as though many of the theme options and page options have disappeared since wordpress latest update. Any suggestion for how to get them back? Please please help!

Hello PixelBook, I love this them, great job. I do have a question for you. I have read through the support area and I see that many people have asked this question so let me first apologize for the repetitiveness. I am trying to avoid the awkward cropping/cutting off of photos in the home screen slideshow (mostly width). I understand the the top is cut to make room for the header. I have followed the directions in your previous responses and therefore I have checked this website http://buildinternet.com/project/supersized/docs.html and I have also changed the 0 to 1 in the js>super sized.3.2.7.min.js file, I also tried to make the change in the global>theme_functions.php file but nothing is working. Entirely too much of the image is being cropped. Please view the site here http://www.kjenkinslawfirm.com

For others that are having issues with slideshow images cutting off the solution was mentioned in prior comments but would not work for me. Well the reason was that my theme_function.php did not have to code listed below. So for other with this same problem go to wp-content>themes>immersion>framework>global>theme_function.php. After line #144 ($.supersized9({ hit enter until you reach line #146 then paste the code below. The places that I have #1 have worked for me but you may need to change them. Also after doing this the slideshow background was black so I had to change that to white. This is done by going to (wp-content>themes>immersion>css.layout.css) scroll approx to line #369 #supersized li and change background:111 to background:#fff (for white or what ever color you need). Hope this helps someone.

I have an older version of Immersion which I’d like to update. How do I get an update? Do I have to buy the whole thing again?
