Hi,

I have purchased the theme a few days ago and so far it seems just what I need. I have started making some modifications and have the following questions.

1. I have just remembered to install the child theme. I did (lost some changes but nothing major). However, when I activate the child theme now, the title (which I have not modified in any way, just typed it in durign installation) is in a different font (and I really liked the one which was there from the very beginning). How can I change it back to the original one?

2. I like to have the category pages (that is what I am going to use mainly) in a full width blog page template. How can I adjust them?

3. My home page is set to the full width blog one. Is there a way to make the posts a bit narrower. On a 15 inch screen it take almost the whole screen and I would like to have a bit more space on the sides. Help with that would be also great.

Those are my challenges so far.

Would be great to get some hints on those.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Regards,

Emo

Ps. Here is the site so far (original one with the cool title font, the child is not activated at the moment)

First point (about the title font) is already fixed, don’t pay attention (by itself, I am not sure how it happened).

I need help. How to make a greater spacing between the lines in a post? Thx for answer.

Hi, go to Theme Options -> General -> Body Text and increase the Lineheight value.

Default-user

I did so. But then improves only on the main page, and in the middle, in content, the text looks the same. Please look at my page: http://good-enough.pl/

Hercules_Design

I checked your website and lineheight property in the posts content is 31px as it is set in the Theme options panel.

Hello man,

Some (23 till now) I’ve reported a problem that I can’t solve in the mobile layout of my website and you don’t seem to answer saying if there’s a solution or not, a would like to knwo please, if you could, a way to solve this.

“Hello,

The last problem I got with the theme, promise =D.

I’m trying to do the theme look in mobile like it looks on desktop, I just searched and found that others got that problem, just did the same thing you said them to do, but that seems to be a problem with 1- the header and 2- the nav-bar.

As you can see, the header is cuted, and the content of the nav-bar is missing. https://www.dropbox.com/s/how0jtb1ybdrxot/missing.png In fact I just did some changes on the nav-bar and on the header, if you need more information, just say.”

The /admin directory just crashed, now I can’t even acess the admin, so I will try to repair it and then I send the email.

Beautiful theme, But I’m a bit worried about customization. How easy is it to mix some of the content modules? Is it possible to do filterable blog layouts with a sidebar?

Thanks, Steven

Hercules_Design

Hi, yes you can have a filterable 2 columns blog with sidebar area.

Hi also I’d like to have “Category Archives” like in your presentation, and the same with “Category About me”. How can I do that?

The another is: how to make a gallery like here: http://themeforest.net/item/john-does-blog-clean-wordpress-blog-theme-/full_screen_preview/6603795 I’d like to have gallery as a post photo. Is it possible?

Analogously with an audio posts.

Really BIG thx for help

Hercules_Design

- Category Archives If you want to have a Archive page, add new page and set Archives template for the Page Attributes section. If you mean categories in the main menu go to Appearance -> Menus edit you menu, open Categories section, select some category and click Add to menu button. Save the menu.

Gallery post format: Add new post. As post format set gallery. A “Gallery settings” window will appear. As Gallery type choose “grid”. Save the post. In the gallery post format you don’t put images directly into the content but you have to attach/re-attach them through Media tab. Go to Media, choose some picture and from the Parent column click Attach/Re-attach link. Find on the list your previously created Gallery format post type and click Select button.

And the last one (today :)) is: how to make white footer?

Default-user

footer is ok now. I made it by myself

How do I remove the boarders around each post. Please see photo as reference. http://i.imgur.com/DxQlhLZ.jpg

Hi, Go to Appearance -> Editor and open style.css. Search for following two css classes:
article{
padding:30px; border:1px solid #eeeeee;
}
.widget {
  margin-bottom: 30px;
  padding: 30px;
  background:#fff;
  border:1px solid #eeeeee;
  position: relative;
  z-index:0;
}
and change border:1px solid #eeeeee; on border:0;

Between many problems that I’ve found in your template the most important is that I can’t add the sections under the header as in the picture attached or as in the preview on the website. I wait fot urgent feedback. Thank you for the attention.

Hercules_Design

Hi, you mean you can’t add the main menu ? Go to Appearance -> Menus, create new menu and from the menu settings set Header menu as Theme locations

Hercules_Design

You can also install sample data to see how everything has been configured on the demo page. Please download All Files & Documentation package instead of Installable Wordpress file only Go to Documentation folder, open index.html file and read “Setting up the Theme”, “Adding sample data” chapters. Sample data are in the “Sample-data” folder

How do you reduce vertical space between widgets in the sidebar?

Hercules_Design
Hi, go to Appearance -> Editor and open style.css: Search for following css class:
.widget {
  margin-bottom: 30px;
  padding: 30px;
  background:#fff;
  border:1px solid #eeeeee;
  position: relative;
  z-index:0;
}
and of course edit margin-bottom value.

Hello,

I’ve read through pages of these comments (though I admit not all), and have found the answers to most of my questions, but not this: How do I disable my title and tagline from showing up on my page? At first, I just didn’t have a title typed in and that worked but I want my page to have a title for SEO purposes.

Hi, I’ve got few questions for you?

1) is there any easy way to modify shortcodes in child template? I have tried to copy affected files from parent template to child template and modify, but it did not worked for me. 2) is there any way to switch off image hover effects? (or the easiest way is still to change the shortcode what generates images with links, or there is the only way to change css? (and what lines)?

Thank you

Hercules_Design
Hi, 1. I don’t know what you want to modify but if you want to have a shortcodes files in the child theme copy inludes/theme_shortcodes/ directory from the parent theme into the child theme. Then open file called functions.php in the parent theme and from the line 36 to 47 change following code:
require_once HS_PARENT_DIR
on
require_once HS_CHILD_DIR
2. Go to Appearance -> Editor and open style.css. Search for following css classes and remove them:
.gal-item img,
a.image-wrap img,
.postphoto a.image-wrap span.zoom-icon {

  transition: all 2.0s ease;
  -webkit-transition: all 2.0s ease;
  -moz-transition: all 2.0s ease;
  -o-transition: all 2.0s ease;
  -ms-transition: all 2.0s ease;
}
a.image-wrap:hover img {
  /* IE 8 */
  -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=60)";
  /* IE 5-7 */
  filter: alpha(opacity=60);
  /* Netscape */
  -moz-opacity: 0.6;
  /* Safari 1.x */
  -khtml-opacity: 0.6;
  /* Good browsers */
  opacity: 0.6;
}
.gal-item:hover img, a.image-wrap:hover img {
 -webkit-transform:scale(1.1); /*Webkit: Scale up image to 1.2x original size*/
  -moz-transform:scale(1.1); /*Mozilla scale version*/
  -o-transform:scale(1.1); /*Opera scale version*/
  -ms-transform: scale(1.1); /*MS scale version*/
  /* Firefox 10+, Firefox on Android - too buggy */
}

Hello. I have a problem with translating this theme. I’m using POEdit, and found the .po and .mo file located in /public_html/wp-content/themes/JOHNDOEBLOG-theme/languages They’re called “da_DK.mo” and da_DK.po” (For danish) From my WP-Config: define (‘WPLANG’, ‘da_DK’);

So i started translating, and then the strange thing happend; Some of the text is translated. For instance the “Read more…” is translated correctly and is now “Læs mere…”. But if I’m trying to edit “« Older Entries” it just stays like that in English. No matter what i’m translating it to, it’s English.

Do you have any idea what could be wrong? Thank you!

Hercules_Design

Hi, please try this: Method number one:

Install http://wordpress.org/plugins/codestyling-localization/ plugin to edit .po .mo files. Go to Tools -> Localization -> Choose Themes tab and click Add new language. Find on the list da_DK , select it and hit create po-file button. Now from the Action column click Rescan -> scan now button and hit finished button. After that click Edit button search for instance Continue Reading… phrase and from the Action column click Edit button. Perform translation and click Save button. Now on top click generate mo-file button. Repeat this procedure for every word or phrase.

At the end in wp-config.php make sure you have your language set:
define ('WPLANG', 'da_DK');

Method number two:

To change every word or sentence you have to edit includes/locals.php file.

Go to Appearance -> Editor and edit locals.php file. Search phrase for instance: Category Archives and you get something like this: 'category_archives' => __('Category', HS_CURRENT_THEME), <.code> and change this on: <code> 'category_archives' => __('Archives de la catégorie', HS_CURRENT_THEME), </code> or whatever :) And repeat this procedure for each word or sentence. The exception are texts in the comments section. These you have to change directly in the comments.php file. To change "reply" edit theme-function.php file in the includes/ folder. On line 226 there is a following line : <code> <?php comment_reply_link( array_merge( $args, array( 'reply_text' => __( 'Reply <span><i class="icon-reply" /></span>', HS_CURRENT_THEME ), 'depth' => $depth, 'max_depth' => $args['max_depth'] ) ) ); ?> </code>

Hi, I sent you an email but I haven’t received a reply and I’m really needing some urgent help so hoping you’ll respond via this. I purchased the John Doe theme a few days ago and i’m struggling. My first problem is that I can’t figure out how to change the home page into the ‘filterable blog 3 columns without sidebar.’ I’ve spent all day trying to figure this out. I want it so the picture and the first fifty words of the blog show on the home page with three colums of say 6-9 blog posts. My second problem is I want to make my sidebar only visible on every other page beside my home page. My third problem is it won’t let me change the colour options for text etc, the colour tab pops up but then freezes and won’t let me move it. The fourth and hopefully final is that my dates posted on my blogs are huge and totally overlapping the blog title. I would really appreciate some help or guidance with this as I just don’t understand anything. I’ve tried deleting and re-downloading the theme and tried to read the documents attached in the downloaded file but i’m not a coder so it makes absolutely no sense to me. Hoping you can help me.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

There is a problem with the “About me” shortcode in multi-language (WPML) sites: it takes posts from all languages, not only from the current language.

I have been able to fix this by adding the parameter “suppress_filters=0” to the “get_posts” call in the “shortcode_aboutme” function.

Could you add this fix to the theme at your next update?
