Hello,

I found that the short code [symple_blog excerpt_length=”X”] cannot trim the Chinese character. It can trim English and numbers. It is also happening in Services.

Can you help me to fix it?

Thanks.

I think it’s an issue with the wp_trim_words() function in WordPress. If you would open a ticket – http://wpexplorer.org – I would be glad to have a look.

Hello,

The issue has not occurred after I used Chinese version of WP. I think it is related to localized issue.

I will also closed the ticket in http://wpexplorer.org.

Thank you.

Hi there,

Is there an option in this theme to make portfolio item with a gallery and if it’s a yes, where can I see a demo of such page?

Thanks.

Chris

WPExplorer

I’m not quite understanding the question, sorry ;(

Default-user

In the portfoliodemo are conluded: posts with a single image, a video or a imageslider. Is it possible to stack a serie of images just beneath each other, or make a gallery of the images? With a gallery I mean like the galleries you’re showing in the menu by ‘Features’.

WPExplorer

There isn’t a layout built-in for this. But you could insert the WP gallery within the post if you want, just not above the title like the default layouts.

My Office theme does have that sort of layout built-in.

Also, not sure if you like this design, but maybe my Metropix theme is well suited for you:

http://themeforest.net/item/metropix-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/4127724?

All the portfolio items use a gallery style layout.

Default-user

Ok, am I right that there’s always a featured image above the title (otherwise there is no image at the portfolio page) and it’s possible to add images into the text of the post, even as a gallery?

WPExplorer

Yes the portfolio will have a featured image at the top always unless you select the video or slider styles.

You can insert anything you want in the post content because it’s just a regular post editor. Think about it like any regular page/post.

Is it possible to remove the main nav menu/logo area on certain pages. I’d like to make nav-less landing pages.

Thanks in advance. Great theme btw.

WPExplorer

You could just create a new page template. That would be the easiest. Then instead of calling header.php directly at the top of your template copy/paste the content from header.php and remove what you don’t want. ;)

This is a really good theme, probably the best I’ve purchased so far on this site.

One area I initially had difficulty with was the use of shortcodes & plugins for controlling the layout. I jumped straight in without using the included demo set-up, and the usage of shortcodes was a new way of working for me.

However, I quickly grasped the usage of shortcodes for layout, and I can see this method is best, especially if you change themes at a later date.

Overall the theme works smoothly for a variety of old and new browsers (so far no compatibility issues). Extensive options in the admin panel, and the additional shortcode/plugin usage adds more flexibility for endless layouts on your pages, which allows a more flexible and creative control over page layout, making a site more interesting.

I highly recommend this theme and the author, if his other themes are to the same standard, then I honestly think you will not be disappointed with your theme purchase.

WPExplorer

Hey thanks for the awesome review and I’m so glad you like the theme!

I do see how the shortcodes layout is a bit complex at first. In my newer Ultra theme and upcoming theme I have a pre-built layout controlled via the theme options for this reason – you should check it out ;) I will likely consider the same system for Impact when I update when 3.6 comes out.

Again, thanks for taking the time to leave such kind words!

I finally located the documentation within this Q&A forum, which has helped greatly to resolve some important open questions. Another great template by WPExplorer! Consistently well thought out.

One of the things that I don’t see addressed is dimensions for gallery images. I want to edit before upload, and I am not 100% certain what size to edit to. Does the gallery allow for multiple image sizes or is it restricted?

WPExplorer

Thanks for the kind words & of course thanks for the purchase ;)

Ok so regarding gallery sizes…The theme will crop them automatically so I think uploading large images is ideal (you can always use the WordPress built-in cropping tool to adjust).

That said, featured mages for the gallery (I assume you mean portfolio) are 500px by 450px (a bit larger then they might show due to responsiveness).

If you want retina support (will be added in next update) then you would want to double those dimensions.

You can actually see and edit all image sizes very easily in the file located at Impact/functions/default-img-sizes.php

Default-user

Thanks. Actually, no I don’t mean Portfolio. I think my use of the two sections may be what is causing some of my own befuddlement. I am using the Portfolio section to display individual courses offered by the client. I am separately adding a gallery of photographs to each course instructor’s Staff page. I am trying to determine what size images I should add and if I can add vertical, as well as horizontal. The sample Gallery that I see in your previews only show horizontal, with what looks to be a 250×250 thumbnail and a 500×500 image. I just wanted to know if the sizes listed in the documentation for Portfolio correlate to the Gallery view, as well.

WPExplorer

Oh the WordPress gallery…Yes these are 500×450 always.

In my newest theme Econo and Ultra I do have a parameter to control the image sizes for the WP gallery shortcode, but unfortunately not for this theme as I hadn’t thought about it at that point ;)

If you really want full control of the WP gallery I really would suggest maybe disabling the custom one in the theme panel. That way you can use the default style as well as you will then be able to use any gallery plugin out there – there are many great ones that I think could fit your needs.

Default-user

Great. Just as I suspected. I will get a plug-in. Thanks so very much!

I noticed that when using JetPack’s Sharing Settings, the social button images do not show up. Does this theme support JetPack? Or could there be something else wrong with my site? I currently have caching plugins disabled.

When you activated Jetpack did you go through and set it up to automatically show up below the posts?

Hello ! I wanted to know if there is a way to change the fonts type, color and size of text used without going into CSS code ? I would really like to have more options to change fonts but couldnt figure it out yet. Shall i install a plug in ? Thanks for your help.

WPExplorer

This should really be done via CSS.

I think I might add body/heading font options to the admin panel in the next update as I’ve done in my latest theme. But anything beyond that (such as colors, font weight..etc) is really just bloat.

There are some plugins on CodeCanyon and WP.org for fonts, but if you know basic CSS I think it’s a much better solution to keep your server speedy ;)

Hi -

I’m struggling with the sidebar and hope you can help? I need to have more than one sidebar (one sidebar on a page still, but different content on different pages) and tried using a plugin – but it doesn’t work. I am thinking this might be because the register_sidebar function isn’t called in the functions.php file? http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_sidebar

I have been researching this but this is where I get stuck because everything that talks about sidebars refers to this and I’m not seeing it. If you could offer any suggestions about how I can accomplish my end goal I’d be so appreciative!

WPExplorer

Sorry for the delayed response, I am currently out of town due to personal reasons.

Anyway, I highly recommend the following plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/woosidebars/

Hi AJ, i have a problem with showing the portfolio items in tabs.

On my website i have created 5 tabs. In 1st tab the portfolio items are displayed correct. If i use the same portfolio shortcode in the 2nd tab the items are squeezed.

Any idea?

If it helps just take a look on my site: http://www.alisveris-siteleri.net/

Thank you!

Looks like there is a clearing issue.

Try adding the clear floats shortcode ( from the symple shortcodes) in the second tab at the bottom.

When I download and installed ‘Impact’, I was expecting when I activated it that it would look just like your demo site. Did I do something wrong, or is it not going to start out looking just like your demo.

Please let me know. I’d like it to look like the demo, so that I can use that as a starting point.

WPExplorer

hi there,

Unfortunately that isn’t how WordPress works. You will have to upload the sample data and then do a few more steps that WP can’t accomplish via sample data ( select menu location, add your widgets, setup the homepage, upload slides).

I did this, after I discovered that the file download from Themeforest only had the Impact.zip info, not the Documentation, Upload, etc. folders. I had to go back onto Themeforest and download the .zip file again, and they were in there – including the sample data. I followed the sample video and when I pull up my site, it looks nothing like the demo. I’m not expecting the same pictures, but the format is not even close. Do I need to do something else.

I also have a PDF of the site, but I don’t know how to attach it here for you to look at.

The post type error you receive is going to happen if the Options Framework plugin hasn’t been activated prior to uploading the sample data. Please not all support is handled via the support site and not comments – http://wpexplorer.org

Hello, I like your Impact, but have 2 questions: 1. Is the theme compatible with Opera? 2. Is the theme compatible with WPML? Thanks Roman

WPExplorer

1. It should work with Opera but I don’t have it installed on this computer. I suggest you have a look yourself.

2. The theme has been localized and get_posts loops have the supress_filter attribute set to false. If you encounter an issue with WPML, just let us know so we can fix it!

Wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the theme and ask a question. It’s not obvious to me in the portfolio shortcodes how to duplicate the 4 column with the filter? Thanks. Your support has been great and the client loves the theme.

WPExplorer

Hi,

Thanks for the purchase! The portfolio shortcode with the filter is fairly easy to do. So when you insert the shortcode into the editor you would just have to edit the filter=”” to read filter=”category” or filter=”tag” depending on which you want to filter by.

I purchased this theme today and I’ve been working with it for a few hours now, so far I’m thrilled! I’ve had to fight with other templates to get them to do what I want them to do, but this one… everything is intuitive. It looks like you thought of everything. :D

Hi there, I’m very happy with your theme so far, but I’ve two questions.

Firstly: Is it possible to let the lightbox show full images instead of the squared images? When I make a gallery of images with the size 1000px by 600px, the lightbox shows not the full image but images cropped to 650px by 650 px.

Secondly: The theme has some predefined colors for links, the lines under the items of the menu and so on. What is the easiest way to change these colours to my corporate colours? Is it necessary to make a child-theme and search for the colours in the stylesheet?

WPExplorer

1. This is actually an error in my coding ;( So yes, I will fix this asap!

2. A child theme would be a good solution, but also there are many Custom CSS plugins out there that work great if you want a quicker/easier solution. Instead of going through style.css there is much easier ways…Chrome for example has a built-in developers tool that you can hover on any element to see the CSS applied to it. There is also a great plugin called Firebug that does the same…If you create sites often you should be familiar with these ;) Only takes a few minutes to learn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdIk2PztcL0

Glad you like the theme! Please contact me via my profile page to send you the updated file for issue #1.

The theme does include .mo .po files for translating your theme. I have no experience with the plugin you mention though.

Sir,

This is my first time creating a website using a template. My intent is to purchase one of your templates. First I have some basic questions such as:

- What’s the difference of a Wordpress v. Non-Wordpress theme? - What type of API am I working in? - While setting up the site does it render on my PC as it would on a webserver? - etc.

I haven’t had luck on this site finding answers to these questions. If you have a FAQ link I’d appreciate it.

Thanks,

AJ

WPExplorer

Hi there,

To be honest it’s not such a simple question you are asking…if you have never used WordPress before I’m not quite sure you should be taking on a project using WordPress for a client… You really should get familiar with the CMS first and make sure you are comfortable using it and editing the themes you’ll be working with. That said, if you know your way around PHP/HTML/CSS it should be pretty quick for you to learn ;)

Here are some links that might help:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Getting_Started_with_WordPress http://codex.wordpress.org/

Best of luck!

Default-user

The links provided appear to answer many of my questions.

This site would be for my own business and I plan to use your Impact template.

I am relatively comfortable editing existing sites and using HTML and CSS. Haven’t worked much with PHP and nothing in WordPress. I’ll explore more into this CMS environment before committing.

Thanks for the links and advice.

AJ

WPExplorer

All good stuff ;)

Sorry if I might have insulted you previously. But I do often see a lot of people taking on client work using WordPress themes which they have never used before (makes me feel bad for the client). I think I read your initial comment wrong and thought you were doing the same – so forgive me!

I’ve been using WordPress for a long time and love it. Hopefully you will as well!

Hey there, I’ve been setting up a new site using this template. Almost up and running already after been playing with it for a long time.

One thing I’ve not been able to do is using the “Ultimate TinyMCE” plugin. For some reason it doesn’t replace the current editor. Is it possible to do?

Besides that, when wp3.6 is out, are you planning to release an update IE10 compatible as well?

WPExplorer

Are you getting any sort of error when you activate “Ultimate TinyMCE” – either javascript or PHP. I haven’t personally tried it out.

Are you using the latest version of the theme? http://www.wpexplorer.org/changelogs/impact/

The theme should work fine with IE10, the issue is ThemeForest just recently added the option to select this browser so themes added before the option was added do not have it selected ;)

If a theme works in IE9 you can almost guarantee it will work or look better in IE10.

Hi – My client really wants to use the revolution slider effect that are the bullet points on the “Wowza” slide. In particular, they want them to slide in, bounce once, and come to rest. I can’t figure out how you got that as the elastic seems to bounce more than once – is there another setting I need to set? What are your settings on those bullet points? Thanks in advance!

WPExplorer

Sorry I have no idea what the “Wowza slider is…If this is just another WP plugin, why not just use that instead of Revolution slider?

For the “lightbulbs” “bounce” affect I am using “EaseOutBack” from the “easing” settings. For the text where it says “Express Yourself” I am using “EaseInQuart” at 500ms for the speed on both.

Hope this helps!

I wasn’t clear – the “Wowza” slide is the third one in – it starts with that text. It’s the bullet points below the text “We’ve crafted some great features”

Oh, haha.

I use “EaseOutBack” for the easing on these at 300ms
